About JohnGreg08
Joined June 2018
UPDATE: 09.03.2019:

More than a year now since I joined WA and still not making consistent income from WA. The truth is I haven't made a single penny for a long time now. My first income from WA was last year (about four months after I went premium) when my real-world friend click my affiliate link and joined.

In retrospect, I should have focused more in finishing WA's training and doing everything Kyle has taught instead of jumping from one online business strategy to another.

What I meant is since I started my online business, I finished about 3-4 digital marketing courses on Shaw Academy and I bought about 16 courses to date at uDemy. Of course, the things that I've learned from these courses are invaluable as well, but right now I am a jack of all trades, master of none.

I guess my goal for the next 4 months is the following.
1. Post 40 SEO-optimized, high-quality article
2. PPC affiliate marketing (need short-term quick income to fund my biz)
_____________________

UPDATE: Well I turned 30 on November 2018 and still not financially independent. Not to sound bitter but defensive but I am actually happy where I am. Over the past few months, I learned many things such as writing and managing a blog, social media marketing, FBA, and many more!

Just looking at how far my website evolved in just a couple of months makes me really proud of myself. I know it is just a matter of time before I can finally receive my paycheque from blogging consistently, but for now, I will just enjoy the process.
_____________________

When I was 22y/o, I dreamed of becoming financially independent by the time I hit 30 yrs old. Now that I am 29 yrs old, I'm still not, but I am optimistic. I Still have 5 months to reach that dream and I will make it work. Of course, it is not just wishful thinking. For 7 years I am trying to study and make stock investing work for me. Unfortunately 6 out of 7 years, I only made a little bit of profit.

On the bright side, I learned how to persevere, find solutions to my problems, realize that there is no such thing as becoming rich overnight, and most importantly it built my character.

Some of my strengths are learning and teaching what I have learned to others. I know a great deal about growth stock and swing trading investing, as well as leadership.

I am also a follower of Christ, thus I have a passion for helping others to see their true purpose and potential, and I love adding value to others.

I like these goals a lot John. They're absolutely achievable! :) I set the goal of achieving $5000 also when I first joined WA and I exceeded it after being here for 2 years. It does take hard work and dedication but it's certainly achievable.

Here's the training to get started with Course 1: The Course 1 lessons will teach you how to choose your niche and build your website. Course 2 and beyond is for Premium members and well worth it if you're serious about creating success online.

The training is step by step and if you need any guidance, or have questions, then please do reach out.

Wishing you great success!

Kevin

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond) John! Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way. :)

John,

Looks like you have taken the road that i’m sure many of us have of chasing the shiny objects. I know I have. Although I once was told by a wise man that you can't catch any chickens if you don't focus on just one. Take care and good luck on your future endeavors.

Appreciate the follow John, and will reciprocate. Yes I feel many of us get caught up in following extra training and programs, that distract us from the main process we have right here. the most successful have followed the training each step of the way, unless they came in with that knowledge already.
At 69 I can tell you no position in the offline world will make you financially independent overnight. Yes you can win lotto, or get lucky with an invention, yet if you look at any large corporation they worked out of their homes, garages, door to door, and did until the right moment when their brand took off. these are people who spent 70-80 hrs per week. College takes 4-5 years and you have not even started your career.

My advice is to work your plan as you have stated, and work regularly until you have achieved enough you can quit the 9-5.
Many here can commensurate what I am saying. Learn the training stay on plan and you will be successful.
God bless,
Bill

That is encouraging to know.

Actually Im doing this so I can minister to more people :) I am planning to set up a non profit org to help people in my home country who has low self esteem find their worth in Christ through teaching them bible based leadership skills. hehe

I think learning how to blog alone is already beneficial. Of course I hope I become profitable as well so I can fund my non-profit. :)

That is truly wonderful. We have Pastors and Ministers here on the site and we seem to gravitate to one another. I myself was doing my ministry degree some years ago but was called away to the business realm. There are Kings and Priests - the Kings need to bring the funds into the storehouse so that the priests can do what they are called to do. Feed the poor, house the homeless, take care of the widows and orphans etc. so anything I can do to help please feel free to let me know and I will help wherever and whenever I can

Hello John And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 440 blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hey Thanks for the support and encouragement. I will definitely ask for help when that happens.

No probs John and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Friday.

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! :)

JohnGreg08 Premium
The niche that I want to do is leadership and stock investing trading. I am still going through the training so am not sure yet how to get affiliate links on those niches. Someone suggested that I should check clickbank to get an idea.

kevinmj Premium
