About Gerryturner1
Joined June 2014
Hello,
My name is Gerry and I first joined WA back in 2014, and I guess, like a lot of other people I was very excited about what I had stumbled across. But, and I bet, like a great many other people, because I had stumbled on WA I had no real plan or even an idea about what it was I wanted to do.
Since then I have spent a lot of time searching, but not really knowing what it was I was searching for. Like many people I kind of knew I wanted an "on line business", whatever that might be. I kept coming back to the notion that in order to have a business you need to have product/s or a service to "sell" which I didn't have, and so I kept going round in circles. However, some 3 years later here I am, back at WA but this time with a very clear idea of where I am going, and, with the back- up of WA, how I am going to get there.
Looking forward to the ride.

Thanks for reading.
Gerry
Gerryturner1's Goals 3
Money Goals
My initial goal is to start earning additional income from a web based business within 3 months from today (21st June 2014) In year one I would be happy earning an additional €1,000, to €1,500 per month (averaged out over 12 months). However I would then seek to increase that to €3 to 4,000 per month in year 2.
I appreciate that by some peoples standards these may be fairly low income aspirations but I have too many experiences of starting a new business where I have been promised the earth and ended up losing money so now I tend to set myself more modest, yet hopefully, fully achievable goals. And after all it's my business so I can always move the Goalposts whenever I feel like it!
To achieve these goals I am prepared to do whatever it takes. Initially I am committing 4 hours a day to learning and implementing what I have learnt, however I will constantly review that commitment and will increase the time spent learning and taking action as is necessary. I would be interested in any feedback as to whether successful web entrepreneurs feel that a commitment of 4 hours a day is sufficient to achieve the goals above. (PS - I know it's not just about the time you put in - it's more about what you put into the time!). Thanks, Gerry

I had those experiences too. It is sad everytime we spend money thinking that we are going to make more and then nothing happens, I hope this works for everyone with all the help we have here.

Hi Janice. I have just read your article on the 5 stages of competence for learning a new skill and found it most interesting as I can readily identify with stage 1 and 2. Its reassuring to know that there are sound psychological reasons why I am dithering at this stage, as I was beginning to think I was just an incompetent! I am determined to crack this internet Marketing business however and will push until stage 5 is accomplished.
Would recommend all who are new to this business to have a look at your article to give them some reassurance.
Thanks
Gerry

Thanks Gerry, it's good to know that you have found the article helpful and appreciate the recommendation! I found that once I had understood and accomplished a few of the tasks / stages of learning, the next ones became less daunting, meaning you actually become more comfortable with stages one and two! You will get there and if I can be of help any time please ask.
