Hi there Gilbert!

Well it all starts with a goal and now that you've got your goals outlined you can start working towards them. The more time you can spend working through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, the sooner you will have the foundation that you can build upon. You have full control over your online business and we'll be here to help steer you in the right direction as you move forward.

Glad to see that you are taking action already by publishing your goals!

Hi Gilbert...

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 read your message and thanks, yes I am very much into music and the more I think about W/A the more I understand I'm trying to figure out my niche in music since it's so vast I did also ask a question on the site about two I believe free website's if that correct can I have two completely different niches I'm thinking like maybe guitar cases and since I'm a lover of cats litter boxes

Hey Gilbert, that's a great question. You can definitely do that but my recommendation is to only focus on one. It's enough work to get traction with your first website, especially because you're learning along the way. When you add a second website into the mix you're really just taking attention away from the other website.

This was one of my biggest mistakes during my first year. I didn't just go into different niches and multiple sites, but I chased different traffic and marketing strategies. I gave every spare hour I had but I was getting nowhere. I learned a lot of hard lessons, lol, but as far as traffic or revenue, I was just spinning my wheels.

It wasn't until my second year that I finally figured out that focus is the key. You can tackle other niche's for sure, but it's a lot easier to that once you have the momentum and experience from focusing on just one first.

Your friend,

I would love to do the premium site but unfortunately I am soooo broke I hope I can keep my house and car so the premium site will have to wait Im also punching Penny's right now to feed my kids.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) 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.

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

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.

I'll touch base again shortly but again, please don't hesitate to reach out for help :-)

Thanks a lot I'm really hoping this works out I have also Done Construction has a land surveyor and engineer things are going tough right now I have a disabled daughter and I can't even leave the house because of summer school lost my job looking for work online or something so I can take care of her so once again thanks and I'm going to give it my best shot I don't know if I can do this on a smartphone or if I need an internet if I do I'm going to see what I can do to get internet service I do have computers

I've read that some have been able to do quite a bit from their phones but it could be hard to follow along with the training as some of the screen options being shown will be in different locations. Anything is possible though... well, to the extent of what we're doing here online.

Sorry to hear about your work situation. Coming from the construction industry myself I know the feeling. The time you get to spend at home with your daughter is precious though. I used to leave mine for weeks at a time and I'm so thankful to be home with them now. It was a quite the journey getting here though.
Thanks again it's 11:46 here so I'm going to take a break and continue tomorrow
Later, Gilbert
