About DIYsurvival
Joined March 2014
Hi, my name is Dave. I have served just over 13 years in the Army (~3 in the reserves and ~10 on active duty). With the downsizing of the military it looks like I will be cut within the next 18 months. I earned with a BS in Business Management - Finance Emphasis and I am about to get started on my masters. I joined Wealthy Affiliates as one of many steps to begin developing multiple income streams to give myself more flexibility and freedom when I am discharged from the Army. I am not tech savvy, however I am motivated to fill the knowledge gaps that I have to make this work.

I will be spending most of my time working on my websites.

This is something I have wanted to do for a long time but lacked the knowledge of building and maintaining a website. Now that I joined WA I hope that I will be able to turn my hobby into revenue.
DIYsurvival's Goals 3
Money Goals
QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning? $1K/ month

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning? $10K/ month or more

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals? 15 - 20 hours a week. I expect that I will be unemployed within 18 months so developing multiple income streams will be my hobby until that happens. I want the flexibility to either go back to school, start my own business, or pursue any other endeavor when my current employment comes to an end.

Hi DIY survival I like your name:) Like you I have given myself a new name in my quest to financial independence. I wish you all the best and hope that your expectation of being unemployed does not become a reality.

Hey Dave... Glad to meet you. I too was in the Army for awhile 6years.. I was in the Air Force for 4 Years. I want to thank you for al the suggestions. I read Dale's book everyday.. That's how I came up with my website. I am currently working on exactly what you said on anxiety symptoms and the causes. I am also working on a quote page.

Hi Danny, definitely nice to talk to x Army folks. I'm not out of the Army yet but I'm about 90% sure I will be affected by the troop drawdown so I'm getting this going until I know for sure. Good luck with your new enterprise, if you need anything from me just let me know. Dave

Hey David! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl

Ian, thanks for all the info and yes it is a bit overwhelming but I have a lot of ideas that I think can generate internet traffic. I just need to bridge the gap between idea to product to revenue. It'll take some time but it will be well worth it.
