Welldone, these are very realistic and attainable goals. All it demands is having a proper strategy in place and the discipline to follow that laid out strategy.

You have all the necessary resources on this platform. Make maximum use of such resources to get the job done. You are not reinventing the wheel, the job has already been broken down for you. What is only need is to become a good student and follow the instructions from the lessons and all the training resources available here.

Can't wait to share your celebrations moments every time you hit a milestone.

Hi, Eric!

Terrific goals. You can do this. We'll help you every step of the way.

The key to reaching your goals is to follow the training inside Wealthy Affiliate, ask for help when you need it and to do the work. Most of the work is writing. As a writer, you have a huge advantage.

Remember patience and commitment are also important. You're building a real business and it will take time to see results. Focus on learning the skills and doing the work, the money will come.

I look forward to helping you build a thriving online business that earns $100K+. Commit to your success and stay the course.

I'm here for you,
Gary

Hi Eric!

Welcome again to Wealthy Affiliate! I hope you're settling into the community and enjoying the training. I wanted to remind you that I'm always here to help you.

If you are getting too many emails from Wealthy Affiliate, you can reduce the emails by going to your account (click on your profile picture in the top right) then scroll down until you see email notifications. Un-click the ones you don't want to receive.

Here's another Wealthy Affiliate success story. Eric , take one step at a time, ask questions when you need help and be patient. Building an online business takes sustained effort and time.

Focus on the training and you will soon begin to see opportunities to make money online at every turn.

As long as you keep taking action, you win. If you have a question, you can contact me by simply replying to this message.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

ELMatthews Premium
Thank you for reaching out, Kyle. I'm not overthinking it, just like you said (though I do tend to do just that). I'm sure that in the upcoming weeks/months I will reach out to you with some very specific questions. For now, I'm just continuing to develop a working schedule for myself since online life is really pretty new to me. I mean, I have had a business website for 7 years now, and I have maintained/developed it over the years...but nothing like what I have seen so far here. This is awesome!

Anyway, all that is to say, yes, I will reach out to you as the need arises (and I know it will).

Kyle Premium
I look forward to working with you Eric and if you ever need a hand with anything going forward, please get in touch with me. Chat soon!

Work through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and take action on the tasks. Action leads to success (that and persistence). If you ever have any questions along the way or feel "stuck", there is lots of help. Just ask.

PS. I hope you have an absolutely brilliant week ahead! :)

Hi, Eric!

It's a pleasure to meet you and good to have another animal lover/writer in the community. Your writing skills give you a huge advantage online. This is the Golden Age of writers.

Thank you, Gary. I hope you're right about this being the Golden Age for writers because I think the same thing. My wife is really excited about my journey as well.

I feel like a kid in a candy store here...so much to see and learn. I imagine I'll be reaching out soon for assistance, but so far, so good. Everything has been well-organized and straight forward.

Thank you, Gary, for your supportive and encouraging words. While Premium membership is not in my budget at the moment, as I am transitioning from my traditional jobs and workplaces to this very new reality of working from home, my goals will definitely require me to upgrade in the very near future.

I hope to lean on you soon enough, though. Thank you, again!
