Hi Wealthy Affiliate Community, my name is Lonnie. I am a new member of the Wealthy Affiliate family. I am currently a Culinary Professional for Darden Restaurants (Longhorn Steakhouse). I have been with Darden for almost 17yrs and make a pretty decent living but I feel that I have gone as far as I can with them and I am not where I want to be financially. I have always been intrigued with the concept of Affiliate Marketing and have felt that it would be something that I would like to venture into. I have very little experience with this business but have recently dabbled in it with the Profit Autonomy program. I created a couple of websites with them but I quickly found out that the Profit Autonomy program is just a crock of poop. They promise to show you how to start your own website business and immediately make a ton of money with very little effort. They did show me how to post an affiliate website but they didn't show me how to draw traffic to that site. To learn how to do that it would have cost me an extra $2500 on top of the $50 I already invested. That's when I decided to do some more research on that company and found a bunch of negative reviews that said stay away because it was a scam. Ironically, that's how I came across the Wealthy Affiliate program. I started researching this company and really for the most part I just saw positive reviews. I am excited to venture into this company and see what they have to offer. I know that this is not a get rich quick type business but I am willing to put in the hard work and time to make my own dreams come true. I am tired of making money for some corporate company so I decided to invest in myself and start making my own money on my own terms and on my own time. I hope that the community here is full of patient people who don't mind answering a lot of annoying questions because I am going to be doing a lot of that and depending on this community for help. Hope that I can make a few friends here to help keep me motivated and keep from being discouraged because this has to work for me to get to where I know I should be. Thank you all and God bless each and every one of you.

Really good to see that you've added some goals Lonnie!

These are both realistic and achievable. Your time investment will be key to achieving these goals and you certainly are willing to invest the time :)

Take your time, take action on what you learn, and ask for help when you need it! There are many helpful folks within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have the answers you will be looking for. I personally look forward to helping out in every way I can.

Creating goals is an important first step. After that, I suggest taking advantage of the well-designed and systematic training provided here at WA. When you have questions, don't be afraid to ask the talented and helpful mentors here for us.

Also, you should know it will take some time to build your success here at Wealthy Affiliate. Good luck with progressing toward your goals.

Best regards,

Hey Lonnie I like your goals

I read your profile and when I started online which seems like a lifetime ago I also had a fulltime job.

And I worked on my business when I could after work and on the weekends. It did take longer but I stuck with it and in time I was making more money oline then at my job and thats when I quit and went fulltime online.

Best advice I can give you is to remember this is a marathon not sprint - work at your own pace - follow the training and and you will reach your goal.

And when you have questions or need a hand don't hesitate giving me a buzz.

I believe in you

Thank you so much and you'll probably hear from me often because I figure I'll need quite a bit of help as the lessons get harder.
