I am going through the training a second time through. I have been here awhile:) I am going to be more focused this time, and would encourage all of the new members to NOT SKIP AHEAD! Don't make my mistake. The training has been updated and the training DOES work! As for the three questions, I am going to be realistic.

How much money would you be happy earning?
$30,000 a year

How much would you be ecstatic earning?
$50,000 or more a year

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
FULL-TIME

I feel that I am in position now to make this a Full-Time endeavor.

Hi EricKarch1,

Just to let you know that as a beginner, your advice about taking our time to understand, and apply the processes is very important.

I'm not "all new" in web revenues, but nerver actually made a dime (I search for a long time how it works but failed to have the discipline to put through it). I've built a few website to help friend, but the goal was not online revenue.

So I find it great that you express this very clearly for us beginners, we have to be persistent and take our time, the mention that the courses have been updated is great too! We all know internet goes fast and it's a relief to know what we'll learn here is up to date!

Anyway thanks for the thoughts!
Have a great day ! :)

Hello Pierre, welcome and yes, the training is the best, and like you said, I failed to have the discipline also. But I feel that if one has the discipline and follows the training, success can be achieved here. Good luck to you with training! You will do great!

Hi Eric,
Welcome to this great community. I joined in 2014 and just upgraded to a Premium yesterday. I realized that all this while I wandering from program to program without the proper knowledge to really succeed in the online space.

WA is all about content and value.

Hope to get in touch with you within this community.

Welcome on board.

Hi Eric I wish you good fortune in your wanting to better yourself. Me I am retired and sick and tired of trying to live on Social Security by itself. Talk about being poor that is the pits. I made my mind up I have to do something about that so I got involved with WA.

Hi Eric, thanks for the follow, I returned it. Sorry about being unemployed, been there, no fun. At least you have time to really get into building your own business. I look forward to retirement so I can do the same. Good luck and hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. See you at the top.

Eric, Thanks for the follow. I'm just getting started again with WA. I've been through the on/off employment situation. That's why I'm here in WA. What I've done in the past is register with employment agencies and more than one at a time. I was able to find work that way ranging from one day to "long term" meaning several months. My own website that generates enough income to replace the need for any other job is the goal. Good luck here and keep in touch. Tom S.

Hi Eric,

Thank you for the follow.

I had a quick look at your website and listened to the Remains. I wonder why they only lasted 2 years???

I really like the concept on your website and will listen to more.

Well, Cave man I wish you the best in all aspects of life and it is great meeting you.

Hi EricKarch, thanks for the follow. I am not sure if the text in your profile above is up to date. But, one benefit of being a member here is if one gets unemployed one always have an alternative.

Most people do not have that alternative to be able to get the kind of support and assistance one can get here.

Unemployment, means more time at WA? means a better opportunity to have a full-time gig as you wrote in your profile.

However, nice to be a part of your network.

Hi,EricKarch1' sorry to heared that you are unemployed,I have a question because you said that you hope someday generate some income makes me sad because you was joined WA more than two years I'm really concerned and sad myself because just I started it's WA doesn't work for you?

EricKarch1 Premium
Hi, thanks for the comment. Please don't be concerned about WA, my bio was updated a year or more. I need to updated it again in the near future. WA is a wonderful community of great people and the training here is the best in the world. My issue is that I have been procrastinating lately, it has nothing to do with WA. If we follow the training here and be consistent with writing great content, it will work! So don't be sad or concerned, just work hard you will succeed! If you need any help let me or others in the community know!

I tried to leave a comment and it reads please use and associated with Gravatar. I dont want any more email address's this is what i was going to tell in the comments:

I never even heard of Lothar and the hand people. Thanks for the heads up man. After hearing the second song, I have to at least give the rest of the album a try. Awesome story. Do you happen to know the best place to hear the second album? I would also like to give that one a listen as well.
Reply
EricKarch1 Premium
Hi Dennis, I think the best way to get some of the songs on Lothar and the Hand People's second record is to look on youtube. The name of the record is Space Hymn. You can do a search for each individual song on the record. The stuff on the second record is a little hard to come by. It is insanely expensive to buy, so here is a list of the songs on Space Hymn, then check them on youtube. Hope this helps! Thanks for visiting the site!

Eric, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. It looks like you joined up a while ago. What's been happening with your WA work?

I just skimmed your posts and I see you chose to leave your new job. This was a hard and personal decision to make but it puts you among people who will take a chance and change in direction to be happy.

Saying that I can see no reason that you will not go places. Just don't get discouraged if things don't proceed as fast as you would like.

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Eric thanks for reviewing my blog. I returned the favor and here is my suggestions:

I went over and checked your site http://enoughwiththejob.com (love the name by the way) and overall it's good. If I may make a suggestion), the suggestion is that you have to put the links back to the wealthy affiliate site so that if people are interested they can sign up under you and you get commissions. You probably already know how to add links but If you need help let me know and I will try to assist. Anyway here are quick steps:
1. when you are logged in to wa on the left side under affiliate program click on "$ WA Affiliate Program"
2. once there, at the top click on "links & tracking"
3. Highlight and copy the main link
4. Now login to your site, in your wordpress site go to your page or blog post, in edit mode you highlight the word you want the link to be linked to, then once the word is highlighted you click on the link icon and add your copied link from WA (I attached a screenshot).

Every time you write the word WA or Wealthy Affiliate I would link that word to your WA link.

Again you probably already know this but I was just on your site and noticed it didn't link to WA. I don't want you to miss out on getting commissions.
Good luck and have a great week,
paula

EricKarch1 Premium
Thank you so much Paula!! Your advice is what I needed, except I have been having trouble getting the links to transfer on my site. I have tried many times, although maybe I have not been in edit mode. I will try that next. I'm a newbie, so I am probably overlooking something:) Also I need to plug in some better keywords I think. Thanks again, your awesome!!

Hello Eric and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
You get stuck you ask ok.

Eric, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Eric.

Thank you Kyle! I find myself wanting to rush through the training to get to the next steps, so I think I need to slow down a bit and focus, maybe start at the beginning and go step by step. The website is coming along, but I was wondering when do the affiliate banners promoting WA go up? I'm impatient and need to calm down a bit. Thank you for checking in!!

Remember, this is not a race. If you think "a year" instead of a "week" to build a business, it will change your perspective and slow you down a bit.

You don't ever have to put banners on your site, they actually don't convert as well as conventional text links but you are going to be walked through this as you move through the training Eric.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page.

Hello Eric, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

So, when you get an idea for a niche, you start your site, then get stuck as to what to write about, what's next? I thought I had a good niche, classic rock t shirts, but when it comes down to it, how much is there to say about classic rock t shirts? The trials of a newbie! Any suggestions?

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! :)

Hi Kyle,

Please if you could give me some suggestions. I am a music collector, specialising in collecting The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones, as well as others. How would I go about turning this passion into a niche to get a business started? I have many.other interests, but this is a starting to explore before setting up my first website with Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks, and it's great to be here in the world of Premium!!

Kyle Premium
When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
