Hi
My name is Thomas, and very excited to learn about Affiliate Marketing as a possible full-time career.
I have worked as an x-ray technologist for the past 25 years!! and have lived in Chicago for all my life. I have a Master's degree in education and taught High-School Advance Placement Biology for 4 years.
I am currently working as a general x-ray technologist for a busy Northwest Suburban hospital in Chicago.
With my extensive imaging and healthcare background, I hope to bring health and wellness tips to the community on my website.
I have a special needs sister that lives in an assisted living environment that I do a lot of charity work for and would like to build a website that would help with their fundraisers.
For fun, loved to hike, bike, play volleyball, and tennis. I have just recently took up golf
I am happy to be with this community and I wish the best of luck to everyone here!!

Hello:
My name is Letticia Lahai. I understand that the achievement of future financial freedom requires one to have certain characteristics. Characteristics such as hard work, perseverance, and commitment.

Despite these traits sometimes we have to deal with storming blocks that get in the way of our goals.

My goal is to inspire and help people achieve future financial wealth by posting inspirational/ motivational articles, accounts, and stories that will illustrate that the achievement of future financial freedom with a high level of determination is definitely possible.

I think poetry is a creative way to inspire people.

Here is a motivational life quote to help you see the amazing potential the future has to offer.

Keep on asking and you will receive what you ask for
keep on seeking and you will find

Keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you
for everyone who asks receives
everyone who seeks finds
and to everyone who knocks the door will be opened.
Jesus Christ

Future success is the key to life

Hi Thomas, welcome to WA. What a smart way to learn and promote your skills to reach out to other businesses manufactures in your field. That is cool you work with charity events for people with special needs. I teach part-time and have many classrooms I cover with kids of special needs.

Things are going well. Ran into a little snag regarding changing font sizes so I have to check out the tutorial on that.
Otherwise, I am plugging along

Thanks for checking
Tom
P.S.
I did not see your blog post as I am focusing on the lessons.
I hope all is well with you!
Best wishes.

As for my blog post, don't you worry my friend, it will be there if you do want to check it out in the future.

Can you tell me what that “following” is all about and why it is desirable?
Is it like FB I have 5000 friends?
LOL

Hi. This may come as a bit of a shock but I opened my first Facebook account about 2 weeks ago. I had no clue what all this "following" and "being followed" was all about and it was just a bit much for me.

Anyway, when I started at WA I had these people "following" me and I had to actually ask what it meant. It isn't like Facebook where the people who are "following" you can see your posts, etc. You know more about this than I do. Gosh you have 5 000 friends. Yikes!!

At WA it simply means that the people who you follow will be added to your network of people who you might want to stay in touch with further down the road. See the screenshot of the little light blue button that shows the people following you and who you have decided to follow.

Something that is nice about it is that the more followers you have the more it indicates to others that you may have something of value to offer. This is usually how a following develops.

Stay in touch and let me know how you are getting on with the training.

Best to you.

Brian

What is the best way to follow the chat threads? on the profile page or the activity dashboard?

Right now I'll just go back to my profile
I am not sure if someone read my latest chat?
or where is the video that explained the website?

Hi Thomas,

I recommend watching this video in full: This shows you where to go and how to navigate your way through WA. Let me know if you have questions after watching this video and I'll be happy to help out. Cheers

is there a way to bookmark this?.
I guess I could refer to this message
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Yep, you can bookmark content you like.

WA has a nifty feature that allows you to save training/ blogs for future reference as shown below (see screenshots for visual guide).

Step 1) Click star icon at top of training/ under video

Step 2) Optionally, add tag to group bookmarked content.

Step 3) Access bookmarked content using star icon at top of screen.

Doing this will allow you to create your own custom reference of all training and blogs you find most useful, so you can refer to them whenever you want.

I'll give a whirl

I just watched the video How to research a niche. It seemed to be going over stuff that was not covered in Lesson 7 course 1. I'm wondering should I complete the lessons first and then watch the webinars?
Just lots of information that I was not familiar with
Thanks
Tom

TimMcKinlay Premium
Yeah for sure, complete the lessons as your main focus, and use the webinars as secondary content. There's a huge amount of value in the webinars, but the core training will give you the fundamentals in terms of building your business from scratch.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

I'm having trouble with the website. Especially sending you messages. I have also sent messages to Customer Service, but response just sent me back to where I have been having trouble.

I have been using computers since about 1975 and have never been this frustrated with a website.

I have completed a training session and noted complete, but it does not show up complete and then I can't move on to the next session.

With no way to talk to someone and not getting info needed I am FRUSTRATED.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Thomas, welcome to WA!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate Unguru. Just stopping by to say hello and see if there's anything I can do to help you get started?

Oh, and here's the link to start your training: I highly recommend you go through these step-by-step lessons now. Everything you need to know is explained in detail. This is exactly the same training I followed to go from newbie to full-time income online, so you are going to get a ton of value from this!

If there's anything you need along the way please reach out- I'm just a click away :) Simply reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap.

I was a newbie here myself once, and I asked a LOT of questions (even though I was worried they were 'dumb questions' lol). It obviously paid off for me, so I encourage you to do the same!

The more you engage with the WA community, the more you will learn, and the more successful you will become.

So take FULL advantage of the wealth of support you get here to build your online business. You are not alone in your quest to build an online business anymore... so connect, ask questions, and get amongst this awesome community!

You'll be glad you did :)

Anyways Thomas, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!

Thank you
I appreciate that.
Kyle, I also dropped a comment on your website I don't know if you checked it out yet. It was regarding your review of AWOL

I am simply looking to make a supplemental income from this program. I am not interested in making a killing in this market but it would be nice to do something for charity. Maybe help them out with their website, fundraisers etc.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Tom

You're welcome Thomas :)

Yeah I got your message about AWOL (you sent a message to me through the contact form on my site- Affiliate Unguru). For some reason it wouldn't send to your email though (I got a message delivery fail notice) so I'll just copy my reply to your message here:

- - - - -

Thanks for reaching out Thomas, and glad you found my review helpful :)

I don’t actively promote AWOL but I do try to give the most unbiased and fair reviews possible. From what I can see it’s not a scam, although there is a level of controversy with that model in general so it does pay to be careful when buying into programs like that. It’s good you’re doing your due diligence. Nice work.

Anyways, if you have any questions about what I promote (Wealthy Affiliate) just let me know.

Cheers,
Tim
