Hi, those are some really awesome goals! Do your training, step by step, no skipping and investing a lot of hard work, you will certainly reach those goals. Also, remember building a business takes time. Always ask questions if you have them, the community is always happy to help! If I can ever help in any way, please just contact me. :)
Best of Luck,
Linda

Thank you Linda for connecting - the same experience that you have received - the concern by everyone - has been mine too. I look forward to 'walking this journey' with everyone. I noticed from your site that you did try before but made no money - but now you are making money - that's where I'd like to be as well. My membertship of WA is to support a retirement income - so we have something in common!! Again thank you - Don

Thanx Linda - I can only learn from your experience. I've got to the stage now that I'm about to work on my website - this is quite daunting!!! But If I 'get it' - I'll have a skill that can be used everywhere. So this WA is amazing!

Hello Gaylene, You're obviously an 'old hand' at WA. Allow me to ask a few questions:

1. What did you do to achieve TOP 100 status?
2. As a 'newbee' - what can I be 'shooting' for over the next 12 earnings?
3. In your experience have you participated in the Affiliate program?
4. What are the 'downside' issues to working with WA - I would think personal disciplines and sustainable action is always going to be a challenge (for anything in life)

Thank you for your help on these questions

Hi Don,

Thanks for your questions. Firstly, the best advice I can give new members is to go through the training: The rankings here at WA are based on your level of activity within the community i.e
Completing the training;
Blogging;
Helping other members; and
Creating training.

I am participating in the Affiliate Program, but my primary focus is on building my own website and developing my own products.

As you pointed out, being disciplined is the key to achieving in any online venture ... in fact, in any venture offline as well. You have to decide what your goals are and how much time you're willing to invest into achieving those goals.

I would recommend heading over to "Live Chat" if you have any further questions, but you'll find, many of the questions people typically have are covered in the training here.

I hope this answers your questions. All the best Don :-)

Hi Don, I noticed that you have not completed your account setup yet. I am just wondering what is holding you back. Are there particular reasons you are hesitant?

Let me know if there is anything I can do and help you going forward.

Hello John - I'm IN - looking forward to working together. I have 57000 people on one of my staff's FB page - at any one time we have between 1000 and 3000 engaging on FB with my lady who drives our social media.

But I have NOT realised yet the potential that awaits us using an AF program - now we want to use WA to do this - and more!
