Hi fellow WA's! My name is Dave, and I'm a mid-forties IT professional with a plan to retire at 55 or younger. Of course, "retire" means doing what I want, when I want, where I want, with whom I want, and how much I want. :) Many years ago, I ran a personal finance blog, did some affiliate marketing, and sold a lot of stuff on eBay & Craigslist. I also bounced around among several MLM/Network Marketing opportunities and never found any real success.
I did make some money with affiliate marketing & eBay, but always seemed to be missing the secret sauce that would allow me to take it to the next level and work for myself full time.
And that's basically what kept WA in the back of my mind. I'd heard about WA in late 2010, but I never looked at it seriously. I'm a big time procrastinator, so of course, it took forever for me to join, and when I finally did sign up, I did nothing with it. Heck, I didn't even watch the first basic training video until 8 months after I joined. I have NOBODY TO BLAME for my lack of success except for myself!
So today (11/25/2013 as I'm writing this), it's all gonna change! I'm making a commitment to complete the beginner training in the next 3 days and then upgrade to Premium on Black Friday. Hey, gotta get that deal! :)
By June 2014 (next birthday), my goal is to be producing a minimum of $1000 per month from my own niche affiliate business. I don't care if that is from one website, or 10 websites each making $100/month. Either way, it's gonna happen! :) From my perspective, once I learn enough to produce $1000/month consistently -- THE SKY IS THE LIMIT AFTER THAT! Then it's just a matter of rinse & repeat until I'm at a comfortable level with my business income.
