I'm Carson, co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate...nice to meet you and great to have you here within the community :)

In a few words I'll give you a little background about myself. I've got a Computer Science background, and that's where Kyle and I first crossed paths. I love to learn, and I love to teach. My father in public and private education and my mother taught youngsters her entire career. I followed suit by creating a community here at Wealthy Affiliate where we focus on teaching folks how to leverage the power of the web to create Internet businesses!

I got my first Computer in 1994, and since then technology has always sparked my interest. Kyle and I created Wealthy Affiliate to bridge the gap between education, social networking, and technology. We're a small tech company (in a sense) with big ideas!

You have come to Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Internet marketing and how to build an online business. Kyle and I have a combined 26 years experience with Internet marketing, starting out independently before joining forces in 2005 to create WealthyAffiliate.com.

You'll find me here in discussions, in Live Chat, and within my profile helping out in every way I can. It is my goal to help absolutely everyone who is serious about building an Internet business.

When I'm not plugged-in I'm travelling, spending time with my family, or shooting hoops!

You have made a great decision to be part of our community, and I look forward to getting to know and work with you!

I am finding the training painful. I am on lesson 6 and do not see the dashboard that Kyle is demonstrating and I have been looking for hours. Is there a live person with this group or just a bunch of instant messages? I have asked questions and do not see answer. HELP

The video was updated and should be easy to follow. Where are you specifically having difficulties with? What part of the training? Please check the video above and let me know specifically where you are having issues.

Hi there Carson. I am 6 months into this programme and have a lovely website up with 44 posts on it and good site ratings. I suspect it will be another 2 more months until I get my first organic traffic.

So I wandered if I should start making a new website to continue working on while I keep creating content for the other. Or should I wait until I see success with my other before I start a new?

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Thanks very much
I will be sure to stick to one website then.

It's Joseph...
I was so excited when I saw your mail.
Thanks for the following but I'm still finding it difficult to complete my account because I was asked to upgrade to premium membership which I have no money in my bank account to upgrade to.
I'm so interested in doing this but now I have no money due to Covid19 which made me lose my job..
Please help me..
What can I do please ???

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Sounds good.
