About DerekBly
Joined November 2016
I'd like to say I'm a middle-aged guy, but that would mean I expect to live to 120! :) I'm pushing 60 and looking to develop an online business to support my retirement plans. I've dabbled in various 'home business ideas' and opportunities, none to any great success. With Wealthy Affiliate, I see a possibility to build a business that is not dependent upon me building a 'downline' or being a pushy sales guy. Freedom is the big thing. I want the freedom to have a business that goes with me wherever I want. I'm not sure exactly what the nature of the business will be, but I'm open to researching and exploring options.
DerekBly's Goals 3
Money Goals
I'm looking to supplement a meagre pension in retirement so I can have a comfortable life. I'll be honest ... I'm not the kind of guy looking to make a huge income for a lavish lifestyle. I like keeping things simple.
Question 1: I would be happy earning $1,000/month.
Question 2: I would be ecstatic earning $3,000/month.
Question 3: Right now I can invest 10-15 hours a week to achieve the goals. Once I retire, that can zip up to 35 if I enjoy what I'm doing. :)

I like your attitude Derek. Not everybody is looking to have a mansion with 5 cars. Stick with the lessons and stay engaged within the community. I wish you well moving forward.

Excellent Derek, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Derek! :)

Welcome to WA. This is a fantastic online affiliate marketing program, probably the best on the internet. The training is top shelf, the support community is the best and the price is right. You have made the right decision. Good Luck.

Hello Derek and welcome,

I firstly want to introduce myself, but after browsing my site you're probably aware that my name is Sharon. Thank you for accepting the Wealthy Affiliate training program.

I would advise you take advantage of the free 7 days, there's plenty of training and live case studies, classrooms, chats, weekly webinars and people to follow. To get started Derek check out these links: there are 5 levels here each consisting of 10 lessons.

Other bloggers methods sometimes vary slightly from the official training here at WA. Thus, I suggest you stick to the Wealthy Affiliate training to educate yourself until you're well conversed.

Until your familiar with how online marketing works, WA should be your reference guide. If you notice some differences, always refer to the Online Entrepreneur Certification course.

Some marketing methods may vary slightly with individuals, and while they may not be 'wrong', sticking with the standard training will make it easier to keep you on track.

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.
(3) I will give and load you a Genesis theme if you become a Premium member.

Let me know if you have any questions along the way. Feel free to send me a private message via the WA system anytime.

Good luck!

Sharon

Thanks, Sharon. I'm looking forward to learning about WA. I've found my SBI experience to be a little frustrating and the training is sometimes difficult to follow! Hoping for a better experience with WA.
