About DMWatters
Joined April 2018
Hello Everyone!

My name is Désirée and I'm from the US but am currently an English language teacher in South Korea since December of 2015.

I'm the newest newbie to online entrepreneurship you could possibly meet. Being a frequent traveler, never living in the same place for more than two years, and quite introverted, I've always been attracted to the idea of using the internet to earn money wherever I am. Countless times I've researched ways to earn money at home only to be quickly discouraged by sites with expensive up-sells and, of course, all the "make money quick" scams. Because of my wariness for scams, up-sells, and the daunting task of networking I assume is ahead, this is the first time I've committed to starting anything. So admittedly, WA is a big scary step for me. However, I'm also very curious as to what's ahead and certainly not afraid of hard work.

Nice to meet you and thank you for your help in advance. I look forward to seeing the possibilities!

Great goals you have there! They are reasonable and definitely achievable. I know you can achieve your goals because I have seen many WA members achieved them.

Now your first step of goal setting is done, your next step is to take action. Remember, everything you do online is cumulative in nature, which means every step you take will bring you closer to your goals.

I would suggest that you follow the WA training courses closely and take action to complete each given task. You will be amazed by how far WA can bring you.

Feel free to contact me if you need any help!

Cheers!

With your experience of having lived everywhere (?) in the world you certainly have the background to do internet marketing. I'll bet you could even tap foreign non-English language sites since you are probably at least a little bit fluent in many languages. What a cool thing that would be.

Best of luck to you, and don't give up.

Welcome to WA, Desiree! My daughter is heading over there to Korea to do what you are doing, she should be leaving anytime--I don't know much about it, but something about a Hogwan--hope that is spelled right. Might talk to you later in a pm when I know more about it, or you can pm me and I'll respond.--Have a great one!

Jeff

DMWatters Premium
Oh wow, awesome! Yes, hogwan is correct. Do pm me and if your daughter would like to, I would be happy to connect with her and help her with questions or any help she needs as she gets to know Korea! And also if you have any questions yourself, of course. Let me know!

Will do, Desiree--as soon as I hear she has departed. At some point, I'll give you her contact information as well. Thanks! This will be interesting!

Yes, she would! It would also make me feel better too. I think she is leaving soon--her name is Ashley, and her email is asheconrad@gmail.com --not sure how close she is monitoring it right now though.

Will talk again!

No problem! Even if she's not coming soon, I can answer any questions she has about arriving, what to pack, etc. I will definitely e-mail her soon :)

She confirmed she got your email, THX, but she is sometimes slow in responding so I don't know if she did or not. She flies out from here to St. Louis on Friday--then a couple of days with friends there before departure to Korea--or so I am told! Thanks for your help! Let me know if she does not get back to you, she can sometimes procrastinate!

Hey Desiree! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!

Greetings, Thanks for the follow. I left a not on my site as well. So far WA doesn't have the scams that other sites have had so I think you will be safe here and will learn a lot and grow. Being an introvert gives you an advantage (in my opinion since I am a flaming introvert and have 0 extroverted tendencies (thanks you Myers Briggs)) You should be able to reflect on the info here and adapt it to your goals and ideas quite readily. I wish you great success and prosperity.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

DMWatters Premium
Haha you read my mind as that is exactly what I'm trying to figure out right now! There are so many things I could potentially do that I am interested in, so it is a matter of narrowing it down. I will definitely take you up on your offer and run some ideas past you soon. Thank you!

Hello! I decided to blog about the ideas I had because it turned into this long thing, haha. If you could add your thoughts I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance :)
Reply
JackCao Premium
So what ideas are they? A blog should only have 1 big idea. Too many ideas at one place will create confusion to your visitors.
Reply
DMWatters Premium
Oh no I just posted that I was trying to narrow down my ideas, briefly listed three, and a couple questions I had about them. Pretty sure I'll go with my third idea I think.

Hi Desiree,

I am glad we met online via WA University Community – the right place to fulfill a dream succeeding in e-marketing, which can comfortably boast its unparalleled training and warm community support if its kind in the world.

To learn deeper each other, welcome to view my profile/bio inside WA as well as the posts inside the websites listed at the right lower corner of my WA profile page.

To succeed, I have been told by WA founders, ambassadors, and supporting members with helping souls with the following in mind and in action:
1. start 5-level Certification Courses.
2. Move on to 7-phases Affiliate Bootcamp Training after Certification Courses.
3. Ask questions as needed and seek any help and support, which are readily available from WA unique supporting souls and helping hands from its members, as evidenced along the path of training; you will not be disappointed.
4. Be consistent and persevering no matter what and will be richly rewarded.

My stay with WA since 9/2018 has confirmed the above is totally true.

All the best to your success to come,


James

Hey Desiree, Jack here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button.
