Hello everyone!

I am a 46 year old single father with 3 young children and also on temporary disability. Since I am "just making it by each month" now, that is why I am here. I want to start a new career that I can count on for the rest of my life and make my life and my children's lives more comfortable.

My only priorities in my life are, Jesus, my 3 children (family) and my very close friends and setting up my children for a very happy, healthy and successful future.

I am coming out of a 24 year career from the Mortgage Industry. I started working for a finance company at first making only $16,500 per year and by the time I left, 8 years later, I was making over $200k plus an annual bonus. I was only in my 20's back then. In fact, I was officially named the youngest and most successful person in the companies 45 year history worldwide. Later I started my own mortgage company which ended making me an official "millionaire". Please know that I am not telling you any of this because I am "bragging", I am telling you this for the opposite reason. So that you understand that money should not be your top priority. At this time, making just enough money to "get by" made me a much happier person.

In 2008, when the economy went upside down, I lost my company and also lost my wife due to the fact that she simply could not handle NOT making the "big money" any longer.

In fact, my life story over the past 6 years was so incredible, the Dr. Phil show on TV offered for me to be on the show, but since my x wife turned down the opportunity (obviously, since Dr. Phil would have "ripped into her", I was no longer able to appear on the show since my x wife would not be able to defend herself and it would be a "one side" story, which would not be very fair.

I am truly looking forward to meeting more of you here and I also wish and pray for you for the best of success. Just remember, "you will NOT succeed unless you first fail". In other words, "the more you fail, the closer you are to succeeding"!

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS!!! Kevin ;=)

Good day Kevin and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Dear Kyle,

I already received a message from "Kevin", who I believe is the person that got me to this website? Anyway, I sent him my below response to his email and thought that I would send it to you also since I am not sure how to ask the questions and concerns I have regarding whether or not I should pursue with your website and this career, since I know absolutely NOTHING at all "at this point" regarding this business opportunity. I just don't understand the "affiliation" process vs. selling products and services on my own websites. SEE EMAIL BELOW AND PLEASE RESPOND ASAP so that I can get going ASAP.

Dear Kevin,

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a caring and hospitable welcome to the community.

Before I go any further, I do have just one simple question.

Since this is ALL new to me, I am not 100% certain as to what I am actually getting into here. Is this site going to help me to just setup websites and sell things or does it also help me (what I am mostly interested in) with affiliate programs? I do not know anything about affiliate programs, but what I "think" I know so far is that you help sell products and/or services along with current large and small retailers and other people selling items online already and when someone buys something through me, I will get a commission, is this correct? If so, what I do not know is HOW I get people to buy other people's products through "me". Are you able to provide me with a simple idea of how this works exactly? For example: I looked into becoming an affiliate with a few different places already (which I have not done yet), I noticed that they ask me for my website. I currently do not have any websites at all. But once I do have websites, what do I do? Do I place banners and widgets on ONLY my websites for people to click on from the other companies and if they do buy something I then get paid? I hope you understand what my questions/concerns are here and I explained them correctly so you are able to respond as accurately as possible.

I am really looking forward to hearing back from you VERY SOON so that I can make a decision to become a premium member and continue to pursue this as my career or not ASAP.

While I wait for your response, I will go ahead and work on my personal profile as you suggested.

Have a SUPER DAY!
Kevin ;-)

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Today is your starting point of your journey to expertise and success within the online world!

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Kevin! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

Hey Kevin and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Kevin and I'm the owner of EarnMoneyOnlineDirect. You signed up through me and as a thank you I wanted to help guide you around the site a bit now that you're here!

But first, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

As a new member here, there are a few things you'll want to do. Most importantly, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

★ ★ ★HOW TO KICK START YOUR INTERNET MARKETING BUSINESS★ ★ ★

You're here to build an Internet Marketing business and Wealthy Affiliate will help you achieve just that. To seriously get things moving into high-gear, I have a few bonuses I want to send your way.

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

✔ 2. With a Premium membership, you are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your business, I will be there every step of the way.

But most importantly...

✔ 3. You get the "Diamond Traffic Program" which is loaded with incredible resources which will help you to get targeted traffic to your website. More Traffic = More Sales = More Money. :)

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

The training here at Wealthy Affiliate will show you HOW to pick a niche, build a website, come up with content for your website, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2002. I know first hand that they work.

Anyways, I thought I would introduce myself. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. :)

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process to become successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Kevin!

Dear Kevin,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and thank you for your kind words.

To better explain what Wealthy Affiliate is all about here is a training video from Kyle which goes into great detail to explain it for you:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/wealthy-affiliate-walkthrough-how-you-can-benefit-from-wa

Essentially, here at WA you will learn how to find a profitable niche, then build a website, add affiliate programs and then learn about Internet marketing strategies to promote your affiliate programs on your website. You can earn commissions for selling the affiliate programs you sign up to.

As mentioned, the video explains it well and here at WA you have access to training, tools, support and community to help you achieve your goals.

Please do let me know how you get along with the "Get Started" training and if you have any questions as you progress then please let me know.

It's wonderful that you have joined WA and from reading your profile I can see already that you will become a very valued member here within the community.

Wishing you great success. :)

Kevin
