About DougLuo
Joined December 2021
Hey guys. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Brrrrr, it's zero degrees outside today. I miss the warm southern weather so much. Yet, I'm so happy to be a member with WA, and I hope to make a lot of new friends along my journey to financial freedom. I'll be needing some help along the way too. Being just my first day, I'm overwhelmed with the website. There seems to be so much going on. I've been in the Army, I've taught GED classes in corrections, and I enjoy sales too. In a few days once I'm more familiar with WA, it'll be a good change for me! Some of my interests are walking, fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming, hunting, football, sight seeing, traveling, and just being outdoors. Indoors I enjoy seaching the net, reading, writing letters, poetry, the Bible, and solving the 2x2 & 3x3 Rubik's Cube. I can do them both under 2 minutes. I also enjoy discovering the newly released patents that are approved in the US Patent Office. My computer skills are good, I'm looking to build my first website, and I'm gonna have me a blog. I think WA is just what I need. I'll leave this post for now. But I'll come back soon and add more thoughts about this new adventure and my discovery real soon. Merry Christmas to you guys, and it's time to be thankful for all that we have.

Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
Oh boy. Where do I begin? Hey, I'm just like most other newbies who want to break into the bank. And as the days and weeks roll by, I hope that I'll be making more and more deposits in the bbbank.

Money I would be ecstatic earning
Good question. I think with this trustworthy platform along with the many personal testimonies I've read, I ought be be making about $3,146 for a respectable starting point.

Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
Lastly, in order to be fair to myself, I think I can wrangle about +28 hours a week while working towards my goal. And once I'm out there in the deep water, I hope to be hooking into them big fish. I'd say that I have a respectable goal, and hopefully I'll be reaching that place in 361-1/2 days from now. Come and visit me sometime....

Great goals here. The training will help you understand how this works so you can gauge how much time you want to spend to achieve your goals. With your determination to do the training and to apply it, you will be amazed at how much you can achieve.

WA is a very friendly, helpful and active community. We like to help new comers achieve success. The Online Entrepreneur Training which is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

Now that you've outlined your goals, you can start working towards them. Remember that this is a journey and not a destination.

There is a lot of work ahead, so the more effort that you put in, the more you will achieve.

As Kyle (one of the owners) likes to say - success is very cumulative in nature.

Every action you take will add up to much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

The more time you can spend working through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, the sooner you will have the foundation that you can build upon.

As you build your online business remember the 4 Step Process. It is the successful framework for any online business.

Step 1: Choose your niche

Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs signing up for and adding affiliate links to your posts)

We wish you much success in your online journey.

Hello Doug👋

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! 🙂 It's good to have you here.
That’s a great goal. Vision is everything and persistence makes all the difference.

For your 28+ hours a week time investment. I encourage you to find time(s) in your weekly calendar (I use Google Calendar) and schedule those times and commit to them. Time for learning the training and working on your blog. This makes ALL the difference. it is consistent, committed efforts that bring results.

You made a good decision by joining Wealthy Affiliate. The support system within the WA community is awesome. If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask on the discussion or Live Chat.

Here is a great blog that lists some success stories for motivation: ** AND here is a great blog explaining what you need to do to get there (helps with realistic expectations) This is a slow steady process but with hard work and persistence, we'll get there.

Enjoy the training! May you achieve the goals you have set with WA.

Best wishes, John

Abie, thank you for sharing with me what you have about WA. I know it willl take some time, but that's okay. I'm gonna press myself pretty hard. You know, I'm gonna discipline myself to keep my mind open and focus directly on doing things in order. To me, that's important so that I don't carelessly begin to skip here and there, and then I'd end up getting nowhere. Once again, thank you for your post. I'll be sending questions your way now and again.

Thank you Loes. When you revealed deeper insight about Holland and the Nederlands, now I've got to give myself a new lesson about Dutch geography. Time does change everything.

There are cities where I could find my way blindfolded, but now they have changed so much I get lost there.

Hello, Doug!!
A Upper, from the Great Lake State.
Met you tonight at Jay's usual Friday night Happy Hour!
It's great to see you diving in to the training, and I'm sure you'll soon be a regular!
You had said, in chat, that you lived in Texas? I didn't hear where.
What a change in environment!
I wanted to return to Michigan, several times, but I'm now spoiled by our milder climate. I still return home, whenever I can. I'm from Outskirts of Detroit, along Lake St Claire, Grosse Pointe. I miss my daily rides by MY lake.
Best success, Doug!

Hey Brichnow21! Jay's training was extra special to me. And me being a newbie, I need all the help I can get so that I have a clearer picture of what lies ahead in 2022. I also think I need a course in bronc riding! I did the mechanical bull years ago too.
OMG! For many, including me, 2022 is gonna be a hang-on tight ride. And me in Texas, I lived in Texarkana for over 20 years, and I've traveled the deep south up to Georgia for 8 of those years. I'll tell you this, I miss the south. Who knows, maybe I'm gonna go back someday. It gets mighty cold up here ya know, and the Detroit area is still just as cold as you remember it. Brrrrrrr. See you in another Happy Hour, and thank you for your post! Doug

Merry Christmas, Doug!
Christmas Eve and it 72 degrees:)
We'll save you a spot for your return.
We are having a huge influx with folks running here to avoid taxes!
We have a real housing shortage.
"Last one out of Michigan, please turn out the lights!" That was 1976, back when I came down. LOL
Still love My Michigan!
Happy New Year!!
