If I had to do it over again
I have been a member of WA for about 2 1/2 months now and I wish I had done things differently.
Be absolutely sure about your Niche
I started on the Certification Courses and about half way through I started to have doubts about my Niche, which is positive inspiration. While building my website and doing further research, I found that everything I had been reading and believing for the past year or so may go against my religious beliefs.
The main reason for this website was mostly for blogging purposes as I was very interested in the topic and it was a continuing learning phase for me. I wasn't even sure that I would make any money from it.
Don't take on too much at once
I needed to rethink things, so in the meantime I had started on the bootcamp and I am now on Course 2 Lesson 1. Things are moving, but at a slower pace than I wanted. I still write posts on my original website, but I am having a hard time with it.
I also started a third website, which is about technology. I haven't done much with this site, but I wanted to at least purchase the domain. This is a topic that I have been interested in for as far back as I can remember and it is what I do in my full time job. I have been feeling a little overwhelmed and realize now that if I had to do it all over again, I would have just started with Bootcamp.
My advice to beginners would be to start with either the certification course or the Bootcamp. I do not suggest doing them simultaneously as it can be a bit overwhelming, as is trying to balance 3 websites when you are still in the learning phases.
Take it slow. Start out with one course and one website. I wish I had taken my own advice not to clutter my mind as now I am at a road block because I can not think straight. Don't make the same mistakes as I did.
