About DValentine
Joined September 2017
Hi there, my name is Dom and I live in the UK. I've been online for around 5 years and I've dabbled in Internet marketing with no results.
The reason for my non-success is mainly down to a combination of 'fear of failure' and Shiny Object Syndrome. I get so far then I think "No, this won't work" or "I can't do this" and I stop and then restart with the next 'system', 'blueprint' or 'easy method' that catches my eye.
This is where that self-destructive behavior stops. I am a success and I am a successful online entrepreneur from now forwards.
The date is now November 2017 and I have 2 websites running - anticipate first income by March 2018 - could be earlier (and will with any luck!)

Update - January 2018
OK, so after 3 ncihe attempts and an attempt at the Affiliate Bootcamp; I've decided to go back to the Green Button and start again as the niches I originally chose I had no engagment with and got bored of them very quickly.
I had a 3 day break from WA and thought about what I really wanted to do. I made a decision and now I'm back and pumped with the expectation of totally finishing the Online Creditation Course.
Then and only then will I have had enough experience to promote WA and, as I have committed to going to Vegas in September of this year I need to yank my finger out and knuckle down.
Hopefully we'll make contact and speak of our journeys later
Thanks for listening

2nd Update - 21st March 2018
It's been 6 months since I joined WA and I've nothing to show. That's not the fault of the 'system' but more a failing in me. My inability to finish what I start has been clearly shown in the last 6 months.
So, this update is going to be my promise to myself -

"Start and finish whichever platform you want to begin - without stopping or leaving the WA arena (unless told to in the training). Once success has been achieved, then return and update this profile"

That's my promise to myself - I'll see you back here once success has been acheived.

Hi Dom, nice to meet you!

Don't feel glum about your past experiments with business. Nothing you've learned is ever truly lost. Some pretty successful online business people can claim a few learning phases and periods of experimentation and failure as part of their growth.

There is an article here on WA that I really must recommend you as part of your own growth, by Marion Black. It's about leaving behind your consumer mentality. I think falling for shiny things is easier if you're stuck in that mindset. Do look it up, if you haven't read it already.

I think you are at a stage when meditating on the points Marion makes could really help you to shift gears. It is a remarkable little post.

Take care. :)

Hey, my mistake, it was Jude's post I was referring to, although Marion's are fab as well. Here you go, I love this: Stop buying shiny things. Start selling them. :)

Hello Dom and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined last year you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Indeed Dom the answers are here. You just have to ask the right questions and remember there is no such thing as a stupid question.
Also you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Thanks for following me, Dom! I guess the way to go up is by learning from our mistakes. You already have got some experience and must have gone through many things that might not have been exactly to your liking. But those experiences are priceless. I'm sure much of your attitude must have changed after joining WA like everyone else. Wish you a wonderful year ahead!
