About Mfickler
Joined July 2012
I am a former engineering nerd with many years in high tech manufacturing. I then worked in a home furnishing business with my wife over the last 7 years. Finally bit the bullet and started an internet based health & fitness business with the help of WA. Had a few starts and stops trying to get a strategy developed but I am on track now. There is a lot to learn to develop a successful authority site but things are getting done, step by step. Looking forward to seeing the business really grow in 2013.

Hey, thanks for following me. Yes, there is a lot to learn- a ton of options and it's hard to always know which is the right way to go. WA does seem to be a pretty good program.

Looking forward to my first revenue!

Hello Mfickler
Nice to know you. I think it was wise to switch over to INTERNET business because the future is INTERNET. I have seen quite a few businesses becoming bankrupt because they failed to adjust to online business.
Many best wishes for success in business

I'm the out of shape couch potato in a family of health nuts. Somewhere I lost it and can't get it back. :-( However, I can still appreciate the merits of a good workout.

I was attempting to implement the WA affiliate content sharing with these posts. Is the WA blog just for training articles and questions about WA?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, related to your activities in the online business world. I would suggest if you have articles like this you put them either on your site or submit them to a authoring site like StreetArticles.com

hehe, wow. Referred by PotPieGirl herself? Most don't know I.M. very well but I can confidently say I.M. is now easy to me. It's important that you receive the right guidance and I wouldn't mind helping you some here and there. I.M. isn't easy even though I do know people who have succeeded within the 1st month. It's something you build upon, learn new things, make mistakes, and more fun things. Good luck.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I've been waiting for you to get here!

My name is Jennifer - also known as PotPieGirl here online.

I'm very excited for you as you begin your internet marketing journey to success!

There may be times that you will feel overwhelmed and/or confused. Rest assured, that is totally natural. You are taking charge of your future and that's a BIG deal - and something you should be very proud of.

Please be patient with yourself as you work through the training - and ask for help when you need it.

If you need any help, try these options:

1. Live Chat - On the right side of your main dashboard here in WA, there is an on-going stream of live chat discussions. Have a question? Just ask in the chat box.

And hey, don't be shy - say hello!

2. The Forum. WA has a GREAT forum! There is a wealth of info in the tons of existing posts - or you can start a new thread to ask your question.

3. Stop by my personal space here on WA and leave a message:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/potpiegirl

Don't forget to click the green button to "Follow Me" - that way we can keep up!

Also, down the LEFT side of your dashboard are 3 very important areas that you should make a point to read as soon as you join.

It's under 'Recommended Training' and the titles are:

-Warm Welcome
-Your First 10 Days
-Learn How WA Works

These will all be super helpful as you learn to navigate everything WA has to offer you.

As someone who started all this knowing NOTHING, I can tell you first-hand from 5+ years of experience that it is a jungle out "there" (outside the walls of Wealthy Affiliate).

Please know that when you are here INSIDE this exclusive community, that you are safe and have all you need to grow your online business to whatever level YOU choose.

I've been here in WA since July 2008 - joining Wealthy Affiliate was the BEST decision I've made. I feel sure you will realize the same as you learn and work to make YOUR dreams come true.

I wish you all the best and remember -

It's not how fast you get there - it's how long you stay.

To YOUR Success!

Jennifer
