About Mjam235
Joined June 2017
Just a regular guy looking to supplement my income. I've held many jobs in the past and owned a couple businesses. I now have a job that is great, but there is lots of down time that I'm hoping to fill with online marketing. Just from looking at all the training offered here I'm know I'll be filling a lot of down time!
I am married to a wonderful lady who has supported me thru many crazy adventures without hesitation. I have six children and two grandchildren, can anyone say Skittles and Mountain Dew, joking...
I have been to many places on this spaceship we call Earth, although I've yet to go to Europe. Perhaps in the near future??
I'm joining WA with the intentions of creating a few successful sites to be able to free up more of my time so I can pursue more of my interest like prospecting, hiking and travel. I like what I see here and everyone seems to be supportive and willing to lend a hand when a helping hand is ask for. So I look forward to this journey and hope the path is well lit so I can see the landscape and enjoy the view! Hopefully I will see a lot of you on the pathway to success!


As of 1 September I will be restricting my social life here to a bare minimum, I find myself getting lost with all the adding and replieing to my network that it's consuming time I could better use completing the training. To those that choose to add me to your network, thank you. To those that I haven't welcomed yet I apologize, but I will power thru the training, complete my sites and then I will re-engage with all of you. If you have questions or comments please PM me as I will engage there from time to time. Thank you in advance for your understanding, but it's time to get this ship out of dry dock and into open water...see you soon friends!

Nice to connect here, friend!

I wanted to leave you with these bits of info for you as a new member.

The question I get asked most often is "what is a niche" or "how do I find my niche", so I made this simple tutorial to show you just what a niche is and some tips to pick the best one for you: I also compiled a list of some beginner Internet Marketing tips that may be of use to you here: Please like these tutorials if they helped you, and feel free to share with new members and your referrals!

Wish you the best of luck,

Hello, Mjam,
You're a better man than I am and I would have probably yelled at my son for setting a hot piece of iron within my reach. One time I was remodeling a house with my son. I was under the crawl space replacing a toilet drain. My son was sitting in the shade texting. I really needed him focused then.
But you're right and your observation is very true: stay focused. I am 70 and still learning the art of "focus". Thanks for the thought. Cordially, David
Reply
mjam235 Premium
Thank you. I feel it was actually my fault for losing focus, not his at all. Oh and believe me there was yelling, not directed at my son though!!!

Thanks for following. Hope you have good success on WA.

mjam235 Premium
Thanks, so far it seems like a good place to be. I've ask questions in the open chat and got answers, also received answers from Kyle and Nathaniel. So their follow up is good! I like the training modules they have in place, and the web hosting and everything that goes with it seems good. How long have you been a member?
I think that after I get a few blogs going the $49/month is a fair price for hosting and support and feedback plus continual training courses to better myself at this !! Yeah all in all, I feel this will be a successful venture into the future
Also if your new, I wish you well and if your a seasoned veteran on WA I hope your doing well.

Howardc Premium
I'm very new, less than a month, and do not have a website that Google has indexed. I'm really technologically challenged; therefore, the training modules are super fine for me. Without them, I would never get a website online. Now I'm wondering if I have followed the training correctly.
Nonetheless, hope you enjoy being with WA. I think it is the place to be, at least it is for me.

I've begun the training and like how simple and straight forward it is, so far so good!!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Wondering if I can transfer my godaddy websites over to WA for hosting and working on them????
Reply

Yes, as a premium member you can host up to 25 TLDs (com/org/net)
Reply
mjam235 Premium
Thanks for the timely answer, as I was telling Kyle, i received help last night from Fabdermis on my question. I'm glad the support was there, and that both Kyle and yourself answered in a timely fashion. The more I look into WA, the more I'm sold, actually I'm already "sold" and will upgrade today or tomorrow.

I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying the site and finding the help you need. I'll be around if you need anything. Good luck with your site and if you want I can take a look at some point and see if you are heading in the right direction.
Reply

Yes, I will definitely be asking for guidance on this journey!!

nathaniell Premium
Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hey, thanks for pointing me here! I like what I am seeing thus far. I currently have 3 domain names and 2 websites, for my own product, thru godaddy, can I bring these over to WA for hosting and continue to refine them with WA so I can eventually monetize them?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, you'll be able to move your domains to the WA registrar and/or use WA hosting. WA will show you how to monetize your websites with affiliate products, or at least you can leverage their traffic generating techniques to promote your own products.
