I am excited to find a way to make money where I can do on my own time and from home. I know there are no free lunches and we reap according to our efforts. I am a hard worker and like being successful in all I do.
Some of my other interests are Gardening, learning about medicinal herbs and tonics, cooking and traveling.. I have served ion many community boards, chairman of the Hospital Board being one of them. I am active in church and serve in positions there also.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Phil

Congratulations on going premium Dorothy!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Hello Dorothy and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am happy to see you accepted my invitation to you.

I am Roope Kiuttu and I come originally from Finland, the country of Nokia and Angry Birds if you are wondering my not-so-typical name! ;) You can also call me Robert.

I'm here to:

-Help you to get started on Wealthy Affiliate
-Help you to start making money online
-Provide you with personal tips and guidance along the way
-Answer your questions

When you reply to this or any other of my messages, I'll respond to you personally. Yes, I am a real person who cares about your success.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to make money online and now I am able to help you to achieve the same as well.

-

#1 step to get started is to set up your account (your profile image and a short self-introduction). This allows other people to recognize you and provide you with better help.

Follow this guide that walks you through the process: By completing your profile, you'll get a better feel for the wonderful Wealthy Affiliate community. I have also noticed over the years that people who start taking action right away, succeed at a higher rate than those who hesitate.

Feel free to navigate in the community. You will quickly learn how everything works here and how helpful people are. I underline and guarantee that 100% of your questions will be answered.

-

#2 step is to start the wonderful training here on Wealthy Affiliate I recommend moving forward step-by-step and completing all the tasks to maximize your chances of success.

-

That's all for today.

Just reply to this message if you need anything and I will help you out personally.

Once again, Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am excited to see your progress.

Talk to you soon!

Your Friend,

Roope "Let's make money online!" Kiuttu

PS. You probably noticed that Wealthy Affiliate provides a Premium Membership for a discounted price during your first 7 days.

I have been myself a premium member on Wealthy Affiliate for ~3 years and I can say with a hand on my heart that it has been certainly one of the best investments of my life.

Nowadays the premium membership generates me +100 times more money than it costs. Having the ability to make money online, has also enabled me to travel around the world and live my dream life.

When I got started on WA, it was just a dream to travel and earn money online at the same time but now it's a reality.

Who knows how your life will change during the coming months? :)

You can see the differences between the free and the premium membership here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

Just let me know if you need anything and I'll be happy to help you out!
