About Muskyblood
Joined July 2009
Hi,
I am 36 years old, yikes... I am married and have 3 beautiful children. I am a machinist by trade, but am also earning some decent side money from my IM efforts.

I knew nothing about IM before joining WA, and I am living proof that anyone can learn how to make some money online. I am not earning full time money yet, but am not working IM full time either. I am confident I will be making full time money IMing in the future, and am confident WA will take me there.

Update - Sad to say, but I am leaving WA on the 25th of this month (January). Its been fun, met some good people, but not for me any more.

Hey musky, I honestly don't know too much about MLM's. I've never bought into one before. I'm just going by what I've recently read & some of the top companies. I've no doubt MLM's hold huge potential towards making quite a bit of money. I can see why people like Donald Trump would be interested in plans like that. I'm just a believer in treating people fairly and not using them largely for the purpose of benefiting just a few people.

Hi Seth,

Thats cool, no biggie. The thing is, the ones who are massively successful are not in it to benefit a few people, they help massive amounts of people. You don't get rich in network marketing by signing up distributors, you get rich by helping people build their business.

Just seems every time I have popped into chat lately that is coming up, and it is really annoying me. Starting to question whether I belong here anymore, which is unfortunate because I have been here 3 years. But if I am gonna get aggravated every time I log in then I am out, don't need the bad energy.

Kyler and Carson earn residual commissions for our work, not just once but for life of the member. Is this wrong? I don't think it is at all, but it is similar.

Anyway, thanks for the message though. Take care.

Josh

Right, I just thing it's kind of wrong to charge somebody as much as $1600 (like empower network) during a 1 time frame when things can easily get updated and obviously can't be taught to a brand new newbie at one given time - is it all just newbie based & does it represent the viewpoint of many individuals? For Kyle & Carson, I think here's to say they've established a system that constantly benefits the user instead of giving them a quick fix NOT TO MENTION all the tools & especially free hosting that's offered here. Kyle/Carson have to run 100's of servers in the background to host all these websites, and that definitely takes quite a bit of money.

I think if the ideal/concept used to power a MLM company is fashioned in a way to help the masses, the people willing to put in the work and actually advertise it, then it should be offered. Given the hype & representation of the MLM guides, you could try naming your product something totally different than an MLM and try to be something more like Kyle & Carson's business, a place where people can constantly learn and benefit from. PotPieGirl actually created her own built in site where paid members can join at http://oneweekmarketing.com/mmo/ for like $96 or something, and can constantly receive new updated information. I realize that's more of a sole proprietor type of ordeal and doesn't so much contain the concepts that a MLM uses where a chain of people benefit, but I think if you put those 2 ideals together, you can great something very profitable & very beneficial to everybody involved.

The outcome: long last business & friendships among many. talk to you later & take care.

Hey Josh,
Looks like Google did do some kind of update from what I was reading, not official info just sharing the link http://jlforums.com/search-engine-optimization/major-google-update-(april-24th)/

muskyblood Premium
Thanks for the info Craig! I figured something wierd is going on because every single one of my sites has dropped from it's position. I checked in Webmaster Tool and there is nothing bad going on there, so I a m not sure why they slammed the door on all of my sites like this. Even a 10 year old local site that has been on page 1 for years is gone. I am just hoping some of my sites come back becuase all of my money makers are gone for now...

I hope they bounce back for you too, going off some of things I've been reading I'm guessing results will change again as they've screwed up the results.

Cute Kids Musky, but don't force them to be fans of the Bears, so much sorrow in one household can't be good. Let them be free to chose. If they need some help in choosing, I am in the process of building a Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns fans website.

Hi there, Hope you dont mind me adding you and i want to thank you for the comment you placed on my blog. Means a lot that people actually want others to succeed in this business. I have taken your comments on board and am actually going to go back to day one. My first few days i felt overwhelmed with all the information. It was like a feeling of panic that i am never going to be able to do this. I have sort of woke up this morning with a different feeling. I will be blogging about it. Wow This place make you stop and think about things in a different way. It really is turning into a personal journey i think. Anyway i am blathering on to you. My main reason is a big thank you to you.

Josh, "non-commercial intention" means it's not a buying keyword. Doesn't necessarily mean it's not a good niche. The higher the number, the more non-commercial it is, or the more commercial it is if you get "commercial intention". I believe 1 is the highest in either direction.

Thanks for the encouragement Josh. I only wish I were able to have gotten this going and not having to have taken the steps I did to maintain my life. Under the conditions I've been, it's a real wonder I've been able to keep up my membership here. Out of everything I had, it is the only thing that remained intact. You can see where I placed my values and priorities.

Great to have been able to serve you. Thanks for the buddy invite! Any time you have another article, send it along!

Hey Musty Wes here,

The video you asked about pops up from time to time on the very bottom left of the WA homepage.
However, Jay posted it on his blog so you can watch it there. This is his WA user name (Magistudios) you can find his WA space in the top ranked members section on the WA spaces dashboard, just below the green forum tab on your WA tool bar.

I hope this helps ,
Wes

Thanks for the remark regarding my family. The little ones are a handful, but its fun. I am located in Wisconsin. Fishing is big here. I do not get out as much as I would like but its okay. Hit me up sometime with a PM and we can chat. My Dad is a die hard Muskie fisherman. He caught his biggest one a few months ago in Canada. It was 55 inches. He has numerous 50 plus inchers to his name. My largest is 48". Anyway, I will talk to you soon.

Hey Josh, I saw your comment on my blog and I'm sure I'll have lots of muskie questions for ya--or do you prefer to spell it MUSKY? Anyway, the opportunity to make money promoting Clearwater Lodge is a new groundbreaking thing. Lisa, the owner, decided that was something she wanted to do--set up an affiliate program. She looked long and hard on the Internet to learn from those who'd done it before, and found she was the first. Luke at WA put out the word to promote the lodge and I jumped on. If this works, I imagine opportunities to promote other lodges will open up. I added you to my buddy list and I definitely want to keep in touch. Where are you located?
