Joined November 2015

I have tried at least ten (10) MLMs. My success has been limited, consisting mostly of tax write-offs for other revenue sources. I am tired of the old school style of recruiting others to join you in a business which consists mainly of teaching others how to convince their friends to join them. I have studied and read and investigated all of the compensation packages of MLMs, tried many different products. I am an optimist and a dreamer who still thinks that there is a way to earn enough money from my own business to work from home. I know that I will never retire. I like meeting new people and I enjoy learning about their life experiences. I may be a little bit verbose and a little bit sarcastic. I am married and have three children and three grandchildren.

Thank you for following me! Together we will succeed in reaching your goals!
I have been absent for more than three month's I have been absent. I try to eliminate the backlog in reacting to followers.
That's the reason I did not react as personally as I would like to do.

Hello Dusty. Thank you for the follow and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I have been away for a while. I have been a part of several MLM's but never made a go of any of them. I still belong to one but I only continue to purchase the products for myself. I hope that you have been able to get through the training and are making good progress. Look forward to seeing you in the community. Robin.

Hi Dusty,
We too have been in the MLM line but except for one company (the products), we have left the MLM business for good. Thanks for the following. We hope you enjoy WA as much as we have. Where you go in this business is all up to you, no recruiting. Best wishes for 2016.

Hello Dusty ... thank you for the follow. This will be a fresh breath of air for you compared to the MLM business model. I'm not a fan of the MLM business model and you will discover that neither are Kyle and Carson. In fact, Kyle has done many MLM reviews on his site (http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com).

I suppose it works for some folks, but almost always reserved for those at the top. There's a reason why the word "pyrimid" often enters the discussion about MLMs It is not an equal playing field, but thrives on those trying to make it so.

If you are prepared to work and learn, the possibilities here at WA are endless. There is a steep learning curve to get started, but at the EOD you will be learning a skill that will bring you a lot of personal satisfaction. You are in the right place my friend.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Charles, how nice of you to drop in. MLM's pshaw! Actually I do belong to Amway but only because I like their cleaning products and they are environmentally friendly. I know as I worked in Public Works, in the water and sewerage department, for years and we did extensive tests on many products. But as for bothering friends no way. I hate the rah rah involved. If you focus, keep motivated, work hard, ask questions and have some fun you will go places. Keep in touch.

Good day to you Dusty, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. My very first MLM venture was a tax writeoff and made $0 dollars.. What an experience. I found out then I am not a salesperson. At least face to face. We all must have some sort of salesmanship else we would never have, friends, or wives, or jobs.
This is a different kind of venture that can be extremely rewarding not only financially but personally too. No matter what it is you are wanting to do, You can do it from what you learn here. The secret is the community. I look forward to networking with you Dusty and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Joyous and successful New Year!

Hey Dusty (or is it Charles)... please let me know ... Thanks for connecting and the follow... I truly appreciate the invitation to be a part of your "journey online":...

I shared your issues with recruiting leveraging "old school methods"... the good news is... it doesn't need to be that way... The network marketing model is still alive and well... I love affiliate marketing... don't get me wrong.. but Network Marketing and coaching/mentoring is truly my passion...

if you are at all interested in learning more about my thoughts on this business, then when you get a chance please check out the following post... Between the post and my profile, you should get a pretty clear understanding as to how I approach "online marketing"... From there, if you want to know more about why I believe the Network Marketing Model is still alive and well... check out this post... I think, you'll appreciate it, coming from where you do in MLM... I'd love to hear your feedback once you watch the video...

If you ever have any questions, or if you'd like any extra information, please feel free to let me know... You can PM here of course, or usually Facebook is the best way to reach me... That's how most people reach me, so Facebook is always open on one device or another... My contact information is on my profile... Thanks again... Bryan

On birth certificate appears the name Charles. I refer to that as my legal name. I have been known as Dusty my entire life. That is my "real" name. I have very quickly perused your first post. I am afraid that I do not have time at this moment to view the video but will do so in the next 24 hours. I wanted to reply to your detailed comment since you went to the trouble to pay attention to my profile and let me know some specifics about how you may be able to assist me in my journey.

Thank you for the follow and I look forward to more conversations.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

You made a good choice coming to WA. I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to affiliate marketing.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help.

When I came to WA in February, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Charles, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.
You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.
Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Need some pictures for your website? Check out my post.

I could not agree more about the problems with MLM. Add to that the fact that so many of the big MLMs are now using business development incentive plans to bring big boys from one MLM to another (and not disclosing the use of the incentives for the top dogs to the many in the downline)

I totally agree with you. MLM is tough and full of scams. Still I believe in the business model and am involved with a couple that do not involve soaps, lotions or potions. One involves direct mail and the other provides the tools we need to promote our websites.

I agree with never retire. There is to much to do and to many people to help. Retirement is not an option, but neither is a job. Our own business is the only thing that makes sense.

Hello Charles, nIce hairstyle :) check mine.
Thanks for joining my network and I have followed you back.
The count will now stop at 10 MLMs. WA is not really a MLM, because it is single tier.
I wish you well.

See you @ the Top!

Hey Dusty,

Sounds like you need more education, educate yourself on the skills you are lacking and don't give up, we all have something we want to aspire to and a place we want to be, but if we never learn, we'll never know how to get there.

DustyP Premium
I need some help with the technical aspects and it seems readily available....in abundance. A little overwhelming at times.
Reply
AidenTaylor Premium
Which technical aspects are you refering to? Information overload is one of the love to hate things about the internet, the best advice I can give you to is do one level of training be it the boot camp or whatever, complete all tasks, then just implement the strategies within that training for a month, play around and see whats working and whats not then move on, or else you'll learn a lot and never take action on any of it.

I agree. MLM's are hard to work because you have to convince your friends and relatives to join you. WA is much different. Welcome to the family.

DustyP Premium
Not only that but the products that are a major, e.g. vitamins, magnets, weight loss powders, magnets, etc. seem to have only anecdotal proof of their value. There is never anything scientific. Therefore, you just have to have faith in the product. I was drawn to WA by the fact that real profits can be made by helping other people find merchandise that they are already looking for. It may all evolve from here and I am far too new to know all but I am excited about the possibilities. Thank you.

What's going on Charles? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress through the training. If you need a little kick in the pants, I've got just the thing for you.

It's my training here titled 'Starting from Scratch: The Strategies I Use to Build & Maintain Successful Websites' It is a Premium training so you may have to check back after you upgrade to get full access!

In the meantime, let me know if there's anything I can do to help!

I admit that I have skipped around a little bit from emails to the site. Will begin the training in earnest by going through the get started. Is affiliate bootcamp the same material? Your "starting from scratch" before or after get started?
Reply
IveTriedThat Premium
Bootcamp will teach you how to promote WA. My Roadmap (found here: ) and the Certification Courses will teach you how to build a website in a niche based on your interests. They are two different paths to take.
Reply
DustyP Premium
is the starting from scratch also different? found a training last night which listed all the certification trainings for each of the series. saved it to my favorites.getting a little overwhelmed by all of the options. Need to defrag the hard drive inside of my head. travelling to day may be off site for a day or so.

That's my own personal training that I wrote. It pairs more with the Certification Courses and is a compliment to those guides.

Hey Charles! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. I was checking your profile and saw it hasn't quite been setup yet. I thought I'd share this video in case there were any problems on your end: Definitely get your account setup. It'll lead to better help within the community. You'll make a better connection with other members with a picture and a short description. We are all people after all.

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! Look forward to seeing you around the site more! :)

Hey Charles and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Charles, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
