About IasonDragon
Joined July 2019
I am a mother of two, an FtM and engaged to a loving fiance. I love gaming of all kinds and want a career where it is my main focus. Thing is, I don't tend to play as much as I watch- unless your talking text-based roleplaying or tabletop roleplaying and then I'm all for it! I do play some games, but for the most part, I watch others play and enjoy the story, graphics and gameplay through that.
I am an artist as well with a bachelors in video game art. My specialty is 2D character concept art. I am also a novel writer with two books available on the Nook platform.

By that last question, I mean: as soon as this surpasses my current job I'd be willing to put all my usual work time (40-60hrs/week) into this.

Those are some amazing goals Bethany! If you start putting in the hours, you will definitely see results. It's going to take daily work to get there, but one step at a time! The path to that money starts with just $1, so it's time to get moving :)

Going premium unlocks all the amazing features on WA and it shows another how committed you are to learn. I would like to congratulate you for taking it to another level. I took the training here in 2015 and has changed my life and the people around me. I look forward to hearing about your success story soon. Personally, I call WA my home.
What is the one thing you like about WA so far?

I just feel that if you wouldn't congratulate someone for purchasing a self-help book, why would you congratulate them for going premium?
While I am happy to be here until our site is up and running it feels odd to get praise for spending money I may never make back, you know?
Personally, I like being able to have the tools to build our site at my fingertips, as well as explanations if I need them. I like the fact people are friendly and are so far understanding of my awkwardness as well. I know I come off as brash a lot of the time, but I don't really intend to. I'm actually very laid back I just think differently than most and have learned to open my mouth over the years when something seems weird to me or uncomfortable.
In fact, my coming out as trans seemed to push an inside button that said "you can't make everyone else happy if it means you are depressed all the time or uncomfortable with your own life- so stop trying" :)

Hi, Bethany
Welcome to WA as a Premium Member.

I am sure you have already noticed thus far, what an awesome community it is here at WA.

There is a wealth of knowledge available to you, in the form of training modules, training videos, communication with other members, and advise from experts as they blog additional training.

Your part is to continue your Online Entrepreneur Certification training. Take advantage of additional training such as Live Event Videos, ask a question in the search bar to find articles that answer almost any topic.
Also, you can join in the Live Feed to ask questions and get to know other members.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to be of assistance.

All the Best

Of course! Our page is going to be fun to write for so I am looking forward to learning all I need to know to add our posts and start earning. :D I know we have to put Ads in and I am still in the learning curve to figure out how to set up the main area... Then we will figure out how to add in the rest.

Personally speaking, I am happy to be here, but congratulating me for buying something seems a little odd in my book. :D While it will aid me, I am more hoping to be given congrats when the site is more than a welcome page with "coming soon!" as its main stay! Thank you to everyone for welcoming me though!

You are the first post onto my wall so far that doesn't automatically feel like a "copy-paste" message. I am getting that feeling more and more as I surf through. This makes me feel worried about how useful the site actually is- or if it is filled with bots who are obviously "premium" members but really do not exist as people.
That happens a lot with "do-it-yourself" help sites. I know I have great ideas and plans for a site if this is real. I know I could bring in an audience and eventually flourish. I have a good business sense, great business ethics (created by the one good job I had and all the bad that has followed), and a passion for my particular choice topics that has already inspired a lot of people to become and remain my friends.
I do hope this isn't just another "we want your money" sites that doesn't do anything but make empty promises!

I think so many people get caught up with their rank that they spend to much time doing some of the things you mention. There are people in the top 50 that have not made a cent.

But they enjoy helping others and for some of our older members this is alot more fulfilling that Facebook, Instagram, and other social media sites that I couldn't care less about.

There are others who are ranked in the 1000's and are making that every month. Do the first 5 weeks and it only costs $19, then make your decision. Looks like you signed up with Nathaniel. I would say he is a Top 5-10 mentor here.

Check our Jerry Huang. Amazing what that kid is doing. I have been around 58 years and retired from the corporate bullshit when I was 46. Got my Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition degrees and have not had another person sign my paycheck in 12 years.

I do not have to work but Jan-March and can make enough off of all the New Year's resolution folks to afford me to travel the other 9 months. I found WA last summer and have been active maybe 6 or those months. I was busy moving to Kyiv, Ukraine and just was not ready to tackle something like WA, which was all new to me.

The professional, helpful, engaging platform caught my eye and I said I am going to do this for 5 weeks, get my websites and make a more informed decision.

After 5 weeks I looked at how much I had learned and realized I had barely scratched the surface of what was to be taught here.

Flash forward and I am addicted to WA. I have multiple websites making money and I am going to have my first 5 figure month in December. And I still have so much to learn.

I promise you this. You will not find another learn and earn platform on the planet like this. Check out a fellow member here, Jack Cao's website http://Barenakedscams.com and you will see how many bullshit sites are out there.

Ask Nathaniel anything, he is a super kid that is living on passive income and is mid-twenties. He will never have anyone telling him when to work, when he can be off, and how much his check is going to be. He IS deciding that himself, and making it happen.

I wish I had an opportunity like WA offers at that age.

Do those first 5 weeks for 19 dollars and you will not believe the networking possibilities here, especially if you want to live a laptop lifestyle and travel the world making money while you sleep.

Best of luck my friend and I will be looking forward to following your success.


Make a living, make a difference.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Bethany!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can talk to me about anything! I've been a member for 9 years now, so I'll be able to personally answer any of your questions about WA or starting an online business. Leave a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or respond directly to this message!

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

PPS. See who has already made money by following WA's training: ★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

Since you joined through me, I've got two surprises for you when you join the Premium membership.

☆ Live Case Study Webinar Series ☆

Watch a professional do things step by step and get an overview of how this biz works. Watch him build the website, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

☆ Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them ☆

Shave off 3-4 weeks of startup time when you avoid these mistakes. These common time-wasters will delay results for many newbies. Get your business ranked and earning money as fast as possible.

____

Before you go, can you please respond to this message 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.

Anyways Bethany, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,

Kyle

Unfortunately, I have an extremely limited income at the moment. I joined to try and change both my income level as well as to be able to do something I actually want to do.
I currently work as a freelance writer for another web magazine. I make very little a month for a lot of work. I write 2k word articles and only get paid $40/article. I HAVE to write 15 this month, so before Paypal takes its cut I make approx. $600 on the first. This has to cover food, all bills and anything else we may need to get.
The problem is, I actually loathe the topics I am given. I write product reviews for items I have no interest in at all. I went to college for Video Game Art and earned my bachelors this past February. This is a field that I knew and know is difficult if not impossible to get into, especially for my specialty: 2D character concept art. However, I would be just as happy writing about them! I love gaming. Video Games, tabletop games, and even role-playing online! I like talking about the games themselves and about all of the accessories involved. I could talk forever about them and about the art and hard work that goes into their development.
I brought this up to the SEO and they gave me the go-ahead- only to can the area after only 20-25 articles in a magazine with likely hundreds of thousands of articles on other completely unrelated gear. Their claim: we want to see if anyone actually reads them before continuing,

Maybe it's just me, but:
1) the gaming industry is booming. If you are smart you will keep your fingers in the pot and try to keep up with new products. Otherwise, you will not keep interest.
2) if you think only 20 articles are going to keep reader base interested in a magazine that only recently picked up this topic, you do not know how to build a crowd- especially in the gaming industry. To them, you are still a "no-name".

I have a business mind. So does my fiance. We just do not have the real-life experience of applying it. We get shut down every attempt we make.

That being said, I wanted to know how far the free membership goes? I cannot afford to pay until something happens. I'll gladly pay if I have the actual funds to do so. I simply don't and won't unless a miracle happens here.

Thanks,
Bethany MacIsaac AKA Iason

It is great to have you here, and I know if you can write, you can be very successful online. You are going to be able to write about something that you are passionate about something that is different from your current experience in the freelancing world.

In response to your questions here:

1) the gaming industry is booming. If you are smart you will keep your fingers in the pot and try to keep up with new products. Otherwise, you will not keep interest.

Yes, all industries are actually booming. The reason is that there are 4 BILLION people online, so that is your audience. I always recommend that you choose an industry you are passionate about, versus one that you think is popular (simply because everything is popular).


When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

2) if you think only 20 articles are going to keep reader base interested in a magazine that only recently picked up this topic, you do not know how to build a crowd- especially in the gaming industry. To them, you are still a "no-name".

Of course, that is true. You have to start somewhere with every website, you gain authority in your niche with time and as you start to get traffic/engagement/following. But that is the reality and can be a possibility within any niche.

Today can be the starting point of something more significant, you decide your direction. ;)
