About Mgc7477
Joined April 2014
Hi, I started seriously pursuing my career online in January 2014. I made my first $25.00 and was ecstatic. : ) Since then, I feel that I have been chasing my tail, so to speak. I know, $25.00 is not a lot of money, but to me it is the same as $25,000,000. Let me tell you why I think this way, I truly believe that one day I will see $25,000,000 sitting in my account, and it is because of my first $25.00, the amount of money that keeps me moving forward, it is what lets me know that making money online is possible, and it is what hushes the naysayers. I have made money online, so I know that it is possible to make a career online.

OK, now, who am I? Good question, I'll let you know when I find out. : ) My name is Michael, I am a military veteran and have served two combat tours, but that is not who I am, that is who I was. I am still trying to discover who I am now, I am working towards being a successful internet mogul, I like that word "mogul". For now, I am just Michael, and that is all I need to be, all the rest will be a mix of accomplishments and shortcomings, but the experiences that I gain will ultimately mold me into being the best Michael I can be.

Best wishes for success, Michael
Mgc7477's Goals 3
Money Goals
1) I think that I would be satisfied in making $5000 a month. This amount would allow me to focus on my internet career full time.

2) I think making $10,000 per month would put me over the moon, of course, once I reach my $5000 a month goal, this one will likely change as well.

3) Time investment is difficult currently. I work 76 hours a week, I would be willing to put all 76 of those hours into my business. I have 5 years to reach my goals. If I was still active duty in the military, I would be due to retire 5 years from now. Therefore, I want to be in a financial position to where I no longer have to work for someone else by that time.

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.

Hi Michael! First, I want to say from the bottom of my heart - Thank You For Your Service To Our Country! I am an Army MOM (Son served 4 tours overseas). From reading others comments on here, I think you've figured out that a lot of Service Members here have got your back. Well, I want you to know, a lot of us "Mamas" on here have got your back as well. Most of all - GOD has got your back! If you ever need help, feel free to PM me, and I'll do the best I can to get you the answer you need

Hello, soon to be "mogul" Michael ... sooner than you believe that 25,000,000 will be yours. You are asking the right questions - the more you begin to define and articulate, think and believe in what you want - the more you will draw to you! Good luck.

Greetings Mgc7477! Thank you for the interest you have demonstrated. I can see that you care not to reside in the 'graveyard of history' and are moving forward with your life and search for self-realization. However, you have the benefit of experience as a groupie person and this is good for a support group in the 'quasi-oneness' field of affiliate marketing. Nice to have you in my support group!. Should you wish to glean something concerning my niche I will be happy to share with you.
Best wishes in your endeavours! Doc.LSG.

Thank you for your candid response, Lloyd. I will accept this as a compliment. Although, I don't like the word "groupie", I understand your meaning. I have spent my life working as a member of a team and I value teamwork. Given that I just began my journey in January, I am new to this and am still finding my way.

I am here to learn from those with more experience than myself, and teach others things that I have learned so far on my journey. We are here to help each other the best that we can, I feel you have a lot to offer the members of this community, and I look forward to learning from you. Welcome to WA.

Michael

Hey Michael thanks for the follow. When I traded in the stock market, ex Marines always did well, attitude and training. That's what you got. By the way the author of "Rich Dad Poor Dad" Robert T Kiyosaki is an ex Marine as well. Semper Fi

Hi Michael. First of all, so glad you joined WA! I am fairly new too but never get too frustrated, someone can always answer . A good way to get a quick answer is to post a question in one of the classroom areas, I often don't know which classroom to pick so I just pick one and people will answer. I saw your comment about being frustrated, I just missed what the question was???? If I can't answer it we can find someone who can.

Next- thank you for your service. My husband is a Marine and I hold the upmost respect for all who have/are serving our country!! :)

Don't worry about writing blogs, I feel the same way!! I have a few blogs on my profile that are a little out there but they are me. My advice when writing a blog for your website is try to incorporate yourself into it so that people will see you are a real person. You can always fine tune it later on! Let's keep in touch- you are going to succeed at this!!

Thank you for the feed back. Sometimes I get on my horse and just want to take off. I have to remind myself that this is a business and that I need to be patient and let it grow the way it grows. Kinda like planting a tree. You cant yell at it to make it grow any faster. Well, you can yell at it, but it will grow just as fast as it wants too, and people will look at you funny : )

Michael, I already respect you for serving our country selflessly so you are rated 'high' in my book: thank you for your service!
