I am a Special Education teacher and have taught for 20 years. I have 3 adult children and 3 grandchildren. I have a lot of interests and people consider me to be creative. I love helping people and have a passion for making hats/scarves for homeless people and hats for preemie babies. One thing that I would love to do in my lifetime is to be a florist. I love the thought of how people feel when they receive flowers for any occasion. My favorite type of floral arrangements to make are casket sprays made in the special way family members want their loved one to be remembered.

Just thought I would check in and see how things are going with you! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I hope you are enjoying the training and making some wonderful progress! Please do touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help Geneva. :)
Thank you Kyle. I have started the training and even in the 1st lesson this is not at all what I thought it was. After saying that, I do find what I am learning is doable as long as you are there to keep me guided through the process. I really want to put my very best effort into this and see results! So thank you for continually reaching out and checking in on me. I will be going Premium and hopefully I can work it out to do so before my initial time limit is up for the $19 start.
Hi Kyle.
Not sure if my 1st reply went through. I have started the training and it's not at all what I thought it would be. I have really enjoyed the lessons and have already learned a lot. Since its not exactly what I was expecting - and I don't mean that in a bad way - because I don't know what I was to expect - I know I will have questions along the way. I want to put my very best effort into this but I don't want to do it blindly or on my own. So I appreciate you and Carson's guidance and willingness to answer my questions. I am planning on going Premium I just need to work some stuff out first and hopefully I don't miss my $19 deadline. Thank you again for you help and encouragement.

That is completely fine Geneva. You should move forward through the Getting Started training and take action. By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

Here at Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to lots of experts and help every step of the way! If you ever do need a hand with anything, you have an entire community of support behind you (myself included)! :)

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

I hope you are enjoying your experience so far at Wealthy Affiliate here, and have been able to familiarize with the community (and work through some of the training).

Today I am reaching out to offer my help. If you have any questions about anything so far, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand/guidance.

Secondly, I want to mention a bonus that I am going to be sending you if you do decide to upgrade to the Premium membership.


Along with WA's Premium "first seven days" early upgrade offer (I think there's a the timer that runs out if I remember correctly)... I wanted to add that I'll also be sending you the 7 Factor Secret Sauce video which was a special bonus that was offered during Black Friday only (and has never been offered since). I will instantly send this to your private inbox here in Wealthy Affiliate when you go Premium.

This bonus is over 1.5 hours of training based on experiences of Kyle, a 17 year affiliate marketing "veteran", that is literally going to break down WHY people are succeeding online, WHY people are failing, and what YOU can be doing to ensure your success online.

Not only that, when you join Premium you are going to get the KEY to the community/platform here at WA, a platform that is by far the best in the industry and one evolves almost daily. It is an incredible place to make your home and set-up and run your online businesses from.

If you want to upgrade, you can do so here:


But no pressure here. Continue working through the training, taking action, and let me know if you have any questions or need any help at all as you continue to move forward :-)

Hi Jay!
I am enjoying the training thus far. It is different than what I expected but in a very good way. I plan on going Premium but need to work some things out before I can do that. I do have 1 question about the recurring membership payments of the Premium membership - when is the monthly payment due? Thank you for all your help and encouragement.
Hi Jay! Thank you for reaching out and your continued support and encouragement. As I started the training I was not expecting what I received - in a good way. If the other 6 lessons are as in-depth and have great leading information in them then I do believe I can be successful doing this program. I'm going to join Premium in a couple of days just need to work some things out. Can you tell me when the monthly payments are due and are they only payable through PayPal? Thank you again for your help and I will be asking questions because I want to do this the correct way. But for me I have to have basic understanding of the lesson in order to propel forward and as an old basketball coach I'm hoping that you and Kyle will be great coaches to me and let me know when I'm going in either the wrong or right direction because I'm going to take and go with your lead.
J-KWest Premium
Sorry, just out for Fathers Day 😀 Payments I think would come out each day of the month from your first payment.

If your first payment was on the 10th for example, I think it would be on the 10th each month. I do the annual membership so I'm not 100% sure, but other monthly memberships I've had have worked that way.

As far as payment methods, you can do credit card or PayPal and you can also earn credits here that you can put towards your membership.

Hope that helps and glad you're enjoying the training :-)

Hi Jay. I received some very devastating news this morning and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it. I was planning on going Premium and just about to do so when my phone rang with the bad news. I want you to know that I am intrigued with WA and would like to continue it once I have time to deal with thus situation. You and Kyle have a great thing going and I was so eager to learn and put your training into practice. But right now my heart and mind just wouldn't be where it needs to be to do your program justice. Thank you so much for all your kind words, guidance, and encouragement. I will be back it just may take me a couple of months. Again, thank you for everything.
J-KWest Premium

Hi Geneva,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I do my best to check in here a few times each day so I'll be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

Talk soon :-)
Hi Jay!
I feel like I'm coming into this completely blind..... I don't know exactly what the end game is and the "what" is it I'm trying to accomplish. I understand little of how affiliates work. I suppose that my answers will come more in the training videos..... Teachers don't always make the best students - haha! I do want to learn and more than willing to learn - just don't know what the object of the lesson is.

Hey Geneva, you're exactly right... how all the pieces come together will become more apparent in the training videos.

Having said that, the end game so to speak is to earn commissions from the sale of other people's products. That does not mean you are doing hard selling, these are products people are planning to buy already.

For example, if you were interested in guitars, your objective would to generate search engine (as well as social) traffic from people who are also interested in guitars. They may be interested in learning how to play the guitar and searching for an online course, and there are guitar courses out there with affiliate programs that will pay you a commission for recommending their course.

Sometimes you won't even recommend it but if you have an affiliate link that takes people to that course, some people will purchase it anyway and you would earn a commission.

You could also earn commissions on guitars and other related accessories through Amazon's affiliate program.

Of course, guitars are just one example. There are 100's of thousands of different niches you could choose and earn affiliate commissions.

Not sure if that explains it very well, but again, the training videos put all of the pieces together and give you a much better picture :-)
Yes, that helps a lot. I'm not at home until Sunday afternoon so I will be able to dive in once I get back home. Thank you so much for your quick response.

Hi, Genevalteal You must have great compassion and patients. I have a special sister whom I love very much, but she required great patience. Let's chat from time to time.
Hi jboi411!
Thank you for reaching out. I'm feeling a little lost right now, but am willing to give it a great effort!
How long have you been in this group?
jboi411 Premium
I just started I haven't even finished the training.haha
I like it if I could stop buying domains. It quickly becomes an addiction. I thought then If an area matches that thought I buy it. Haha, it is crazy! hahaha

Hi Geneva...

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.

Here's the link to those... >> 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.

>> Your own free websites (for lifetime... these are NOT just trial 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...

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.

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.

Before you go, 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.

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.

Just wanted to pop by and say hi. I realize you are probably just stepping into the platform & community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know that I am here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.
