Formation of Mentoring Support Group - Making Money Online

Last Update: January 22, 2018

Hello, Group Members (and other members stopping in)...

This is my third and last formation post for a support group today...Only three more tomorrow and we will have this stage completed...

Of coursr, there is a LOT more work to get through before we start getting these groups underway and working, but we are closer with each step...a good thing.

For each group, we will start getting nailed down the main needs of each member, how they can work together and when, etc. .

As I stated with the other formation posts, remember that these groups are intended to help the members use the training found here and to assist getting participants in getting more tasks done and have them start making some money from their online efforts...

Remember also that there are a hundred ways to run a group...The most important thing is that they be effective and work for all members...

That is why I am having us go through these initial steps so all are clear on what they want and need, and how they will get this for their efforts...It will mean a clear path to success for members...

To date, this is what we have for this group...

There are 5 members that signed up as follows:

+ Dave (DaveSw) - Temporary to get the group going...

Catherine (kitkatskitchen) - Group Leader

Glenys (Happy2Learn)

Shirley(sdawson)

Craig (CraigKnight)

Arline (amexn)

MY NOTES:

(1) There is room for more members in this group. Once started, if we have enough interest, we can start more groups. The idea is that this will be an ongoing program that new members or members who may develop an interest will have a plave to come to to get into a group...

(2) So if you did not sign up but want to, please add answers to the questions I ask below, and I will immediately add you in to this group now, or other groups later. This is an ongoing program I intend on following up on as long as I am here...

The Group

Group Leader...

This is another group that our fellow member Catherine has volunteered to lead, and as with the other one, I am very grateful for this. Remember that she has been here for 11 years I think, and has been in the business for over 20 years...

Group Members...

I would ask you to please have a look at the training in published blog posts I have made over the past 3 1./2 weeks. These will help you understand how groups work and how to get the most out of them...

The next thing I would ask is that you add your answers to my 8 questionsin the comment section...

I will then turn this group over to Catherine. She will provide further guidance at that point.

Your Next Task...

This is to help Cathrine understand a little more about you and what you may be looking for...

(1) What Are Your Reason(s) For Joining This Group?.

(2) Where Are You With Your Online Business Currently?

(3) What Top Three Needs Do You Have Right Now?...

(4) Where Are You With The Wealthy Affiliate Training?

(5) What Special Skills Do You Have That Might Be Useful For The Group?.

(6) What Are The Best Ways To Communicate With You?

(7) Are There Any Preferred Times Or Days For Group Work?

(8) What Else Do You Want To Add Not Covered In These Questions?

Bottom Line...

As mentioned, Catherine will take over this group and make decisions on how to proceed. Like the last group formation post mentioned, I will be communicating with her to see what she wants to do next...I do know that at the moment she is away on busiuness and is returning 4-5 February....

Things Are Happening...Be There or Be Square!

Cheers!

1. I procrastinate. I'm inconsistent with my learning and working on my website. I need an accountability partner to encourage and motivate me.

2. I've been making money online since 2006 but I'm not earning anywhere near my potential.

3. I need direction, motivation and money.

4. I skimmed through all the phases of Certification and the old Bootcamp without completing all the steps. I'm currently going through the new Bootcamp and completing the steps as I go along. I'm up to Bootcamp Phase 2, Lesson 4.

5. I know HTML and CSS and WordPress and making videos. Plus all the stuff at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/marionblack/training and http://marionblackonline.com

6. I can be reached via Private Message, my WA profile page, Skype (marion.black1947) and email (marion@marionblackonline.com).

7. I work from home so I'm online most of my waking hours. I'm in Adelaide Australia so my time zone may be very different to yours.

8. Catherine and I are old friends so I'm looking forward to working with her and the rest of our friends.

Thanks so much Marion, I do appreciate your interest in this group. I may just be a member of this group, it is, of course, the focus of what I am doing online (trying to anyway hehe)...Catherine is someone we can all learn from, no doubt! Cheers! Dave : )
