About MarioE
Joined February 2015
Hi all.
I'm from sunny Cape Town. I've spent a number of years in the corporate world in customer services, about a decade in the hospitality industry and dabbled here and there as an adventurer. I'm a published poet, which means what, as I've only sold two copies. I'm very keen to get something going online and to be honest have tried doing so, on and off for a number of years now. I'm always overwhelmed and spend time on a site which takes me nowhere, or perhaps I don't see how the financial benefit is supposed to kick in. I have registered with WA before but never took it anywhere.
Have FuN and carpe diem, Mario
MarioE's Goals 3
Money Goals
Q#1: Considering that I'm between jobs at the moment I would be happy with $800 per month
Q#2: Then I would say $2500 per month would make me ecstatic > But that is not a ceiling and I believe the world is my oyster so long-term I will rather like to be ecstatically happy and build on that.
Q#3: Time is relative and I have it right now. I'm going for 8-hours at the moment as a target!

PS: After reading the goals of Pendulum Toro, I am inspired and reminded of a conference I attended with JT Foxx in Cape Town in August/September 2014, after which I set a goal to make-a-million ZAR in a year. For me to reach that target I am adjusting my goals to:
Q#1: Happy = $1652 p/m
Q#2: Ecstatic = $ 7162 p/m
1
Money I would be happy earning
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals

Hey Mario,

You can definitely achieve these goals and I know that you will make it happen. The key is to dedicate yourself to your training here at WA. Follow the training, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them.

It all starts with a goal - you can now start working toward it!

Talk to you soon,

Carson

Awesome, can't wait to see you get there and be able to share with the community your success story. If you put the time and you have the right mental focus, there is no reason why you should not be seeing your dreams come true here at WA. You are definitely going to dominate here if you follow the simple principles that lie here in WA.

My grandmother was a published poet. Her publications only went as far as the many groups that she belonged to. But she died before the Internet was a reality. This is a great way for you to share with the world. Almost every week at least 2 or 3 of her responses to the editorial pages of the News Tribune which is a local Tacoma, WA newspaper were published as well. Being opinionated runs in the family.

Sorry to hear about that Mario and I hope all is alright. We are not going anywhere nor is Internet business, so work at your own pace.

Thanx Kyle. Appreciated. I have to add that I'm battling with my mobile browsing experience on WA which is slowing me down some. But getting there slowly and impatiently. Cheers for support mate!

Yeah, we do program for mobile we don't have a full responsive versions because it will actually detract from the experience (as we would have to leave a lot of stuff out). The best is to work from either a tablet or if you are on mobile, use it for the training aspect only and chat.

Thanx Kyle. I understand completely. At the moment only have my mobile. But can't chat, ask questions, can't edit pages, upload media on page. Also the training does not take me to where I left off so I spend 5mins trying to find my place. Its frustrating because I should be moving faster with all the time I put in. Anyway not your problem but looks like this is not going to happen without the right equipment. So until then...! Appreciate all the input. Ta, Mx

Yeah, mobile can slow things down for sure, I do use WA on my mobile all the time but it tends to be a little slower because there is so much going on.

Glad to help and hope you had a great weekend Mario!

Welcome. Congratulations on your poetry. I have met poets who like to make money and others who act as if earning money from poetry is at least as bad as sexual prostitution. I feel it is ok to want to earn with poetry, but feel most valuable poems do not earn money. There is the most money for poetry in gift cards and in young children's rhyme books, and song writing.

There are many pieces that have to go together and each of us must be patient and persistent enough to get through all the unexpected mini challenges here. I have asked for help and had it work at least twice here at WA and feel good about getting help when I needed it.

Hopefully you can get further with it this time.

I won two awards for free verse poetry from the International Society of Poetry and had a few published but haven't made much money from poems, maybe $7 at the most, so far.

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Mario, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can find me in chat (I am frequent there).

PS. I hope you have a super productive week ahead!

Greetings Kyle! I read your message around midnight and it really hit a chord. Clearly you understand the frustrations many of us face in the unknown world of the internet. Not all are scams but can be so complicated. Thank-you for the personal and encouraging words. I see no reason not to go premium as soon as possible but would like to spend the next week taking my first few steps. The only problem I'm experiencing at the moment is my mobile access but for now I blame it on poor coverage in the backwoods. It a pity though as I'm a night owl and could spend the hours when the world is sleeping to build on my success. So for now the internet cafe is my best option. All the best and thank-you for the personal support. You guys are legend! Cheers mate, MaRiO.

Thanx again Kyle. I'm taking the baby steps to build a foundation at WA. Looking good right now. Awesome stuff mate!

No problem at all Mario, it is great to have you here at WA and I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

And yeah, I can understand any frustrations. I have been there and done that with all of them in my 13 years full time Mario. I started from scratch, nothing...so I know what can be achieved with some effort. You are capable of so much and the online opportunity is only continuing to grow if you know what you are doing (which is what we teach here).

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)
