About CraigW315
Joined April 2016
I have been here at Wealthy Affiliate for close to two years now (although I was a lazy bum for the first 6 or 7 months, so I don't really count them!) and I have seen a number of people experience success and start living the life they want. This year, it's my turn.

I have already had some luck in finding work online writing blogs and articles for various sites, and that has been amazing. I grew up wanting nothing more than to write for a living, so to be paid for writing something? Fantastic! But as awesome as that is, I am still working for someone else's benefit. My writing is helping someone else, more than it's helping me, so I really have to kick it up a notch and start producing more work for myself and my own site.

I hope that this will be an amazing year for all of us. I love seeing other people succeed, and I want to see YOU succeed as well, so work hard, stick with the lessons and just keep pushing until you succeed.

I look forward to reading about your dreams coming true!

My sites and other contact info are listed over there on the right... just under the list of blogs. If you should feel so inclined, I'd love to have you swing by and leave a comment or two!

Money Goals
I don't need to be rich. I simply want to be able to provide for my family and be able to enjoy life. I would be happy earning 50,000 per year. I would be ecstatic earning 100,000 per year. As for how much time I am willing to invest, I would happily maintain full-time hours, but for more than that, it would depend on the type of work involved and the income it generates. My family is worth more to me than any salary could ever be.

Thanks!
I'm doing my best to be optimistic, but like a number of people, I have been burned in the past, so sometimes it's hard to put faith in something like this. Still, I'm hopeful. One step at a time eventually gets you where you want to be...

Hey Craig,

You can definitely achieve these goals and I know that you will make it happen. The key is to dedicate yourself to your training here at WA. Follow the training, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them.

It all starts with a goal - you can now start working toward it!

Talk to you soon,

Carson

Hi Craig!

I was just noticing one of your comments on another blog and was going to follow you but you beat me to it, lol.

It's great to meet you and thanks for the follow.

How do you like WA since you joined? I hope you have a fantastic year. :)

I had a somewhat rough start. I joined back in April or so and I really liked it, but I felt a bit overwhelmed. I think I put out a post or two, but mostly just did a couple of lessons and then backed away from it.

A couple of months ago, I lost my job and decided that I would look into WA again while job hunting. I am so glad I did. I have been much more committed to it this time (although I still slack off a bit-- I need to work on that) and the positivity of the community and the sense that I am accomplishing something have been extremely helpful to my morale.

I am still in the early stages of learning, and probably quite far from making any real revenue, but I am loving it here and I feel as if I have finally found what I should be doing. I am working on the bootcamp because I want to reach out to other people like myself who just need that one great opportunity to turn their lives around.

I hope that you also have a great 2017. I think it may just be an amazing year.

Hi Craig, thank you for the follow back! It's great to be a part of your network here at WA.

I too, am here to do what I can to provide a better life for my hubby and kids...working so much at a regular job does get tiring when earning just enough to barely scrape by...I hear you on that! I'm hoping too that someday my kids will follow my footsteps in one way or another and own their own online businesses instead of working for someone else.

Looking forward to seeing you succeed in all your goals and hoping you're having a great 2017 so far!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hello Craig and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in April you will no doubt have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 270+ blogs I have published within WA.

Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi! Yes, it is quite the learning curve. I am reading what I can and learning what I can, while trying not to be too overwhelmed!

There is a ton of information here and much to learn, but I am very excited by the opportunities WA represents.

I technically did start in April, but quickly became sidetracked, so I am making another, more serious attempt this time and loving it. Hopefully it will be smooth(er) sailing this time.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to reply. I appreciate it.
