Please understand before you comment. This question is for those who want a coach/mentor here at WA and for those who are willing to COACH or mentor. Not about what WA has or does not have.♥

It not about holding hands or monopolizing precious time or getting paid. It is just a tool to connectwilling partners. Please respond appropriately.

Please note before commenting, please:

  • I want to bring the two together who want such relationships.
  • If you want a coach, then , by all means comment. Then, pm me if you get one..so I know it actually helped you.
  • If it is not for you and you do NOT want a coach. Do not reply..
  • If you want to help someone. PM them. So that people do not think you are spamming..
  • If you do not want to commit to a coach, that is not what this question is about.. It is for those who want to commit to a coach and be accountable.. some of us need that. If you do not, great!

While Wa has live chat, webinars, the great white box and yada yada yada, all of which I use and you should to, but, some may need a little more.

If anyone can help with the requests below great..
Maybe people can connect here and build some necessary relationships. Leave a comment here if you need one. MAYBE, Those who want to coach or mentor could pm you?

Please note: This is not a monetizing oppurtunity. No spamming. No promoting, EVER.

I would like a coach/mentor. I am dedicated and have been looking for a niche. Have an idea. But the rest of it, website, google, etc. is difficult for me. If anyone out there is interested, please let me know. Thank you.

My life is crazy so I am very late to the discussion but I am not sure why you have gotten negative responses because you were only trying to help others like myself that move slow and have additional questions. Everybody learns and moves at different paces so sometimes extra coaching would be wonderful so we don't throw the towel in or throw our computer out the window.

Kudos to you for attempting this feat.

Paula,

Seems a variety of ideas have been considered with the replies.

I would be willing to help, however, do not feel I know enough to help anyone yet. Maybe a testing ground for learning by teaching!

I also feel very guilty when asking for help, from an individual, as I know how busy they are. I only ask for help from those whose work seems substantial. I have had an odd answer or two, in a group inquiry

Some try to help when they do not have the answers themselves.
So this is a mixed bag of questions you have posted,

What was your feeling about the whole conversation?

Thanks ,
Sami

Hi, Sami! I think as a whole conversation was not really poised correctly on my part, but, I recieved a lot of good information, pretty much one or two sided but never heard from the most important perspective of the "coaches" side of things. With that said, I felt let down to facilitate a different level of help but learned several new aspects of coaching that need to be considered. It also needs to be taken in consideration that it takes time that people want to be/ need to be recompensed for. The take away is that it is something not to go into lightly and not an easy task to facilitate.

Paula, All in all, I think this was a good thing. A reminder to me about the pricelessness of the ones who do offer to help me! So my takeaway has been to make sure that I do a draft of a question that I ask, to get the facts included, with how I got there, and exactly what I am asking. I find I sometimes ask the wrong thing!

I need coaching through skype. Paid coaching is the right way to get ahead fast.
What this site should be doing is encouraging members to get together through skype and teach each other for a week or so how they are doing their site.
Team work helps all go places faster than a person.

I read a couple of comments here, and I did get the urge to react again, because of the people who are wanting personal coaching.

A coach isn't someone who takes you by the hand and lead you to success. A coach is someone where you can ask questions and will point you into the right direction. On WA we are all coaches towards eachother.

When you want a PERSONAL coach, I reckon it would be an option to find one willing to put in effort and time into your business, but you have to be willing to pay for it.

There are so much helpful people here, willing to put in time and effort helping out and finding answers, but I think I can speak for most people here when I say, that personal coaching has to be payed for.

Then something else, you are referred to WA by someone,although I do think it's so neatly to help, it is not an obligation

Those of us who are serious about this business don't want our hand held. We just want to know that there is someone out there who will be there for us to answer questions and have a base knowledge of where we are at because of working continuosly with us. As it stands WA is a great sociaty, but if you are like myself, you truly do have the need to have people here willing to help someone with absolutely no base knowledge of the business move forward from one step to the next. I am not looking to drain anyones engergy or time, and am willing to put back into WA what I can get out of it , which is in and of its own the point of WA from what I was told. I am however finding that the community is not tolerant of individuals who learn or succeed differently than the members that are responding, I think this pulls from the integrity of the site. It is advertised as an anyone can do it, but if you come in with no knowledge of computer stuff, you are looked down on and told you are incompetent when asking a question. Please tell me that this is not what WA is.

I like the first part, Kristina. I was thinking of you when I asked this question as i see how awesome and persistent you are and want to take a hold of things! I am shocked at the responses I have gotten and a bit disappointed that it has not had the response I intended, but this is good to know. it just shows that those who promote themselves as coaches here on their profile are not for real, plus, they are not really WA material, I guess.. Let's hope you get a better response... have you tired UPSgirl. she was a good help to me and would stick it out with you I am sure.. tell her I sent you..
Reply
Loes Premium
That is not my experience Kristina, I came here with no knowledge at all, started from scratch, there where I had troubles, all members where willing to share their knowledge and help. I never have send any PM to ask for personal guidance. Always send out my questions into the whole community.

As you know, I am an ambassador for over a year now, and I didn't get to this position doing nothing. But I get request to me via PM for coaching. At least what people think what coaching is. Requests as if I can write the website for them, if I can write blogs on websites and if I can place comments and more PM's which I don't display here but which are totally out of order. Neither of these are my responsibility here.

Sorry to read that your experience is different, but you can always ask me for help if you are stuck. When I don't know the answer, I will tell you directly. When I know the answer, you can count on me.

.....this is not what WA is.

O.K? You asked someone to tell you that, so I did. And it's true.

Nobody is more tech-stupid than I am regarding the computer, and I have never had anyone look down on me and tell me how incompetent I am. There's a ton of learning we all have to accomplish to get where we want to go. Nobody's going to do it for us, and the best lessons learned are the ones we teach ourselves.......and the best lessons many times come from the results of mistakes. Just has to happen.......no shortcuts........sorry about that.

Kristina,

When I came here, I wouldn't have classed myself as somebody who had NO knowledge but I was clear that I needed to go right back to basics because none of the attempts I had previously made at online marketing had gone well.

I never once encountered any member here who treated me with anything less than respect, nobody looked down on me and I was never told (and it was never implied) that I was incompetent.

I'll tell you something else as well, if I ever saw a post from somebody who thought s/he was superior and disrespectful to others, I'd call them out over it straight away. In fact, no names no pack drill, I have.

One of the things that might be seen as a negative for WA is that it is so open...so open in fact that sometimes idiots can come in for no reason other than to be mischievous. Weed them out is all I'd say.

What you talk about is definitely not what WA is about but you can't legislate for the odd troll who likes the sound of their own voice.

What WA is about is "paying forward". I have been helped here and now that I know some stuff I'm willing to help others who might know less than me. I'm also willing to try and gee up people who might feel in need of a lift....again so are many people here, all members need to do is ask and help and support will be at hand.

Good luck
Mark

I think that assuming everyone is going to ask someone else to do their "homework" is a negative approach. I am a relatively smart lady who works hard at everything I do or I wouldn't have gotten to be the leader of a milt million dollar concept. I however do have a learning disability that makes it difficult for me to connect the dots. It's hard for me to recognize some of the in between steps so it takes me longer to get to the finish line and some of the questions I have will and do sound elementary, but it's what I have to do to ensure I learn it and understand what I have learned. I take pride in what I do and I ALWAYS do my own work. Assuming the negative about someone right off the start is never the right thing to do. If someone tries to take advantage, then don't entertain them, but if someone is really trying...they deserve the ability to learn and make mistakes and succeed without being ridiculed for trying to do so in a way that works for them. ...THAT'S WHAT WA SHOULD STAND FOR.

I agree Kristina and for as long as I have been here, I have NEVER been ridiculed and ALL the answers I have asked have been answered. WA is a great community. Have you met with negativity? And where? As this is not my experience .I think you are doing great nor have I noticed anyone question you or your experience and hope you find all your answers to your questions. If you need help, you know you an ask me or anyone freely. Pm me with anything personal if you need. All the best, pJ

I know, you have been awesome. I just don't understand the negative response to this. You are not telling anyone to do anything, but trying to connect people on both sides of this issue and put them together. I appretiate all the effort in trying to connect those who need to learn and those who feel the need to teach or help. If one is not part of either of these, then they need not try to tear down what might help someone.

Hey Kristina
If you've been ridiculed on here for whatever reason, then shame on the person involved.
You can report them and I would encourage you to do so because unless they get stopped/banned/lose writing privileges then they'll continue and do it to the next person and so on.
Wealthy Affiliate is definitely NOT where these people belong so please "out" them for your own sake and the overall good of the community.
We are a decent bunch of people in here, welcoming to one and all but like I said, it only takes the odd idiot to spoil it for many others.
There are plenty of people here who are very willing, and I've seen some already offering, me included, to help you through whatever difficulties you have that you feel may be a bar to your success.
Please see that that is the real WA and not what some fool may have said or done during your interactions on here.

I wouldn't mind a "coach" for the process of helping lay out my site. While I like the look of it, I'm sure some placements such as ad and sidebar content could be much better. I'm currently on course 3, lesson 6 and I feel like I "understand" keyword search, affiliate programs, etc. I just need a kick in the butt on site design at times. Love my current theme but are things really placed appropriately?

Jozeph Premium
Hey Kris, as a beginner, it's important for you to go through the courses, the WA system is designed in such a way as to perpetuate itself in an altruistic way and a pay it forward style practice. To expect "private one on one tutoring" is unrealistic and misleading. For most questions you have, you should ask them in the public forum, and also network and socialize. Of course as you get to know people, and create rapport, you'll know who knows what, and who to go to.

As you learn, you begin to help others, by also answering their questions, and on it goes, that's the spirit of WA.

Private one on one tutoring is extremely time consuming, and therefore expensive. Most members here are working on their own stuff, and of course help each other out. However, soliciting for one on one tutoring will open a can of worms, which will turn into a money making system between members within the confines of WA, which is a no-no, and considered "spamming"
~Rules and regulations set forth by Kyle and Carson In this case specifically # 18 and #19

Earlier this morning there have been a few who've already crossed the line on this post, one who went as far as giving out an hourly fee. These comments have been deleted after these members were warned by myself and others that they were breaking the rules, and risked having their WA privileges revoked, if Kyle and Carson would have caught these comments
Spam is in no way tolerated here, neither by Kyle or Carson, or by Members.

My comment is not meant as a put down to Paula, I understand her sentiment, and she is definitely coming from a kind and loving place :)
By the same token, take heed, we're skating on thin ice here.
With Kind Concern

I think that anybody who wants to monetize its own site need a coach. Training is good and the community is awesome, but I am not sure if it is sufficient for starting to earn money from your online business. Sometimes I will need a coach too, and hopefully, in the future be able to coach others.

This post is just in time. I have really been wanting to have a coach with this website building and monetizing. But I'm just too shy to ask anybody. I know they are pretty much busy with their lives as I am.

So what I do is just follow people I consider experts in this industry like Leoemery, PjGermain and Robert (Boomergp08). :D

The training of Jay (Magistudio) is also one that I always go to whenever I want to learn more about this stuff.

Hi PJ,

Yepzzzz ... I was asking about that when I first joined WA as well. I have many coaches here ... The course is already been laid out to start. When I stumble in the curriculum what I do to start unraveling the puzzle is as follows:

1. a search with my question in seeking an answer.
2. still not satisfied ... Go on the chat and ask.
3. Sometimes In the chat you may get no reply coz those online may not have the answers.
4. Then look up mentors/coaches in the top 100 ranked or you can ask the person that sponsored you into WA.
5. Still no dice ... PM Carson or Kyle with your question.

If still not satisfied with the answer ... Then most probably the question is the 0.1% of all the questions being put forth.

Coaches are everywhere in WA ... sometimes different solutions to the same problems. If you need more than this like a personal trainer or tutor ... Hmm ... The you gotta PM those that you feel are qualified. However, the beauty of WA is that you get to find answers your self ... Tutor yourself ... Finding answers and solutions yourself will definitely enable the solution to be embedded longer in your memory than if it was given out right away! Well ... At least for me.

Hope this helped,
Apeng

So I personally do all thAt above and will recommend it as well.

I think the best thing is to connect in the community, ask questions and create rapport. Most of us have our area of expertise, and are also working on our own stuff:)

So to commit as a mentor might be a bit much, however I do get PM'd with questions, I either answer or direct the member to the right person to get the answer .they need

The basic classes are pretty thorough, once you've gone through a few levels, and asked questions, you pretty much have a sense of who to go to, for such and such a subject.

There are many coaches on here, they'll take time to help you out if needed. Just connect with members, and as I said, ask questions on the question forum :)
Hope this helps
