About EarlWest
Joined December 2018
I have been trying to figure out how to start a business for a long time. I have been doing it on my own for all this time. The bad side of that is I find it difficult to ask for help. The positive side is that everything I have learned I learned through effort.

I find that I have less energy now, than I did a while ago. I am changing the way I eat, and my sleep to attempt to have more energy. I find that after working at a desk in a stressful job I come home dead tired. I sit down to work and I nod off. Sometimes I can't focus, I find that I just look at BS on FB and YouTube.

I am hopeful that now I have a full plan and support so I will begin to feel more passion and a vision of success.
EarlWest's Goals 3
Money Goals
Money I would be happy earning
Either a bit more than my anual salary or as much as possible. So say 80K per year and above.
Money I would be ecstatic earning
800,000 per year sounds really nice. I could help my family and causes I believe in. I could tell my boss to screw himself. That would be wonderful.
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
A couple of hours per night - Once I get the health stuff worked out - Even still I will go for a couple of hours per night and weekend.

Hey there Earl

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

EarlWest Premium
Thank you, Carson.

You're very reassuring. People like Russell Brunson and Frank Kern say you can't make money as an affiliate. The fact that this is achievable is wonderful to hear.

Hi there
I too am like you and find it uncomfortable to ask for help and prefer to work it out on my own. Fortunately I have already met a few WA Members who support me in many ways AND it helps me to move forward.
I seem to feel that you will do well here.

Simple steps at a time......smiles.....

Hey Earl! Welcome to WA! Congrats on going premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Congratulations on going premium Earl!

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!

Hi Earl, Thank you for the follow and I follow you. I have found the best way to handle social media is to use an alarm for 15 minutes of surfing, twice a day. Holding to that is difficult. When I started here last March, I pretty much put all my spare time into WA.

WA is a great experience and if I can help, give me a yell and I'll get back to you soon.

I love that idea.

I am pulled by all of the FB bells and emails going ring a ding.

Thanks, S,W.

Welcome to WA;

I think if you look around WA you will see there is much opportunity here. There is step-by-step instruction on how to set up a business, how to maintain a website, and how to get visitors and prospective clients to visit your site.

There is also a helpful community of thousands of interested people anxious to help.

It is very satisfying to know that you are supplying information to people who are needing it and that you provide a real service to your community.

We do not compete with each other here as we are all working in different niches.

Finding financial success does take time and effort and in that regard is similar to any other business.

But this is a real opportunity that over time can prove to be another source of income with very little start-up cost.

Hi Earl!
Welcome to WA and congratulations on going Premium! I am following you now and am looking forward to networking with you!
WA has a fantastic step by step training platform!
As long as you follow what is being taught, you'll be achieving your dreams in no time. This is not a get rich quick platform but you can and will make money as long as you put what you've learned to action. What you put into your business(passion), is pretty much what you'll get out of it!
The WA community is awesome and willing to help if you need it!
Much success to you!!!

H!! And welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium! The information available here is never ending! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Hi again, you can go there to get feedback on your site too.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt 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.

Hi Earl
I have been with Wealthy Affiliate 2 months today and from my experience, you have landed in the right place. The training truly is superb, I have learned more here in 2 months than I did on another program in 2 years! I have had the pleasure of celebrating 6 of my articles being ranked by Google - purely from following the instructions in the training. Affiliate Bootcamp is the training I follow but it seems that you will be working within your own niche so it will be best for you to go with the other option offered in WA.
I encourage you to follow as many members as you can and read the blogs within WA - you will pick up lots of tips and tricks and be encouraged by the successes of other WA members. You will soon see which WA members are "your tribe" :-)
Wishing you every success here.
