About EricPhillips
Joined October 2019
I am a 47 year old Disabled Air Force veteran. I have been married to the same wonderful woman for the last 25 years. I have 4 beautiful children, ages 12, 14, 21, and 24 years respectively. the two older are girls and the two younger are boys. I have 1 granddaughter from my youngest daughter. I live in Northeastern Michigan on 10. 49 acres of beautiful "God's country"! due to my disability me and my family have struggled greatly in the past. Fortunately, we have overcome many of the struggles we have faced. The last hurdle that i would like to overcome is my financial hurdles. I have always wanted to own my own business but like many have failed miserably, often at the family's expense. Even to the point of my wife not trusting my judgments with financial decisions. So any and all help that will reverse the affect my decisions of the past have had would be greatly, greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your encouragement! i do however think my greatest obstacle is convincing a skeptical wife with serious trust issues. she is the "I'll believe it when I see it" or the "Once bitten twice shy" sort of person. So I am basically operating on a "0" budget until i can convince her that it will work.

and that is OK, for now were all here learning just how to make the money we need to have a successful business, pray on it, get your training done, show her your website once its popping and slowly but surely she will come around, stay strong!

Welcome to the community. And thanks for serving. Military veterans are some of my favorite people. My dad served and my son is now serving.
The way to develop your website is to follow all the training. Don't skip around. Ask questions too.
Wish you the best,
Barb

Hi Eric...

There's a lot here at Wealthy Affiliate to take in, so I just wanted to follow up on my previous message and provide a quick "orientation" of sorts.

The community is also available to help if you need anything, and... Kyle or Carson (Wealthy Affiliate's co-founders) often stop by and welcome new members. Just hit reply to any of our messages if you need anything.

A quick reminder of what you're getting today for free...

>> 10 over-the-shoulder step-by-step lessons showing you exactly how to make money online. These lessons including videos, text, progress checklists and forums to ask questions.
(The link from my previous message will take you directly to these lessons)

>> Your'e also getting private access to me for 1-on-1 help.

>> Community access so you can talk to and learn from industry experts.

>> Access to member's blogs, many who have documented their journey and tell you exactly what it's like... their struggles and successes.

>> Two free websites

>> A live example of the money making process.

>> You’re going to see a real example in the training of a simple website in a weird niche that had no competition (until it was shown here) and still brings in $400 - $1000 a month in passive income.
(No... it's not a ton of money but this is passive income from a simple website that requires very little maintenance).

>> You'll learn how you can turn "your" passions and interests into completely independent passive income. This is NOT some MLM product. You will learn how to create your business in your own niche and under your full control.

In fact, no one here even has to know what your business is about unless you share it, but that's your choice.

>> You're also getting some really helpful online tools that make what we do here way easier than it used to be.


A couple other things to keep in mind...

One...
---------
Don't be afraid to reach out to me or the community for help, everyone here is extremely helpful and it is truly a rare opportunity. This is an exclusive community with many members who have years of valuable knowledge and experience and they are happy to share.

As I mentioned above, you can even read their personal blogs which in a lot of cases document their progress and tell you what they've learned, the mistakes they've made and the success they've had.

For anyone who really wants to make money online, this information is absolutely critical.

As you probably know, there are two main reasons most people fail online... the first is the most obvious - fake "gurus" and scams.

The second is that people try to do this all on their own.

I can't stress how important it is to have a community around you and that the members here... especially the super affiliates, are sharing their knowledge and experience with you, but they DO NOT have anything financially to gain from you.

They are only giving back to the community that taught them how to be successful too.

I need to say that again because it's so important.

They are not sharing information with the purpose of getting something out of you. This is NOT like watching someone's "webinar" on YouTube where they try to sell you something after.

This is an entirely "spam free" place where we all hang out. No one is going to promote or sell you anything.

You also won't find any ads or offers here, with one exception...

Sometimes you'll see some exclusive offers for starter members to try out the premium membership, or occasionally the membership prices go on sale (Black Friday for example)... but those are exclusive Wealthy Affiliate offers...

... this is not place for other members to promote their products or sell anything.

Two...
---------
You can always get access to me for one-on-one help by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/j-kwest (as well as responding directly to this message).

I know you're probably skeptical, and I can promise you, I was too. I joined Wealthy Affiliate in October 2016 and I just didn't believe a place like this existed online.

But I'm still here and because of Wealthy Affiliate I have not had a boss in a long time.

Once you start going through the training like I did though, and meeting some of the other members you'll find out this is the real deal.

And you're not alone. We all had doubts when we started.

I look forward to getting to know you and following your success. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if there's something you need.

Thank You that is certainly a breath of fresh air. I also know that in reality you can't always get something for free, but i also know that if these so-called "Gurus" were making obscene amounts of money why do they have to "sell the information"! One of the things that I've tried to stick to is if someone is in need of help and I can give it I do. Unfortunately, I have learned the hard way that people can take advantage of you if you let them. But I still adhere to you get back what you give freely of your own heart. call me foolish or naive, but I think the world would be so much better through cooperation instead of fierce competition. There is nothing wrong with competition in and of itself, but competition at the expense of others, not so much!

Welcome! I just wanted to stop by and say Hi. I know you're probably just getting your first look inside the platform and community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know I'm here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation (outside of asking for help when you need it) is to start with the "Get Started Here" button in the training menu which will quickly walk you through the platform and give you a tour around.

You can also follow this link to get there... ... or here (link below) to go directly to the walk-though video, I'll touch base again shortly but again, please don't hesitate to reach out for help :-)

Also... before I go here, I'd just like to ask if you can respond quickly to this message with just a few words so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

Jay
