About Newbie John
Joined January 2014
Hey everybody, John here and let me just start off by saying I'm the newbiest of the newbies when it comes to online marketing. I'm tired of making others money and let me tell you I've made them fortunes, so now it's up to me to pay me what I am worth instead of what the other guy thinks I am worth.

I really have the desire and tenacity to make this process work out so that's why I am here...to learn and put those applications in place so that I can create an income stream regardless of whether or not I am working that day or not. I once heard Bill Gates tell Larry King that what separated him from the other guys who where working in their garages on the same types of software was the fact that he took...immediate, massive action. It wasn't about the product, knowledge or timing, it was all about his actions to put in place a distribution system...and that my friends, is what I intend to accomplish.

It's not about the money, it's about helping others do the same thing and that truly is my goal, helping others.

So without further adieu, now you know why I am here let me tell you a little about myself. I reside near Chicago in northwest Indiana, just minutes from the loop. I love working and playing in the city and I especially love their sports teams. In my spare time I love to fly, rent whatever is available and take it up and pass away the time. I do enjoy traveling and am looking forward to a spending a wonderful holiday abroad this spring. I love to read and more specifically, I love to write. I've written several fictional stories, novels actually but I haven't taken the time to try and find a publisher...not yet anyway. One of these days after I chop out a 100,000 words or so.

I have 3 grown children who happen to be the pure joy in my life.
Newbie John's Goals 3
Money Goals
I've written down my short and long term goals, ie...month, 90 days, 180 days and 1 year from now...I've added goals of where I want to be in 3-5 and 10 years from now....hopefully still breathing...I placed them down on small 3X5 index cards and carry them with me in my wallet. I've placed others around the house, on the fridge, bathroom mirror and in my car so they are always in front of me. I also included personal goals for my family and so on. I learned a long time ago some of the best ways to achieve a goal is to take them one at a time in small incremental or baby steps...make them very public and have someone or all hold you accountable to your goals. As a realistic goal for question number 1, $15,000/month would make me happy. Question number 2, 200,000 to 300,000/month would make me ecstatic, I know, I used to work with folks who made that kind of money and...to answer question 3, I would have to say, I have to learn this process and make or take my baby steps but I would like to replace this for my full time job so I can devote whatever it takes to achieve this type of success, so to begin with, since there are 168 hours in every week, and I only work 40 hours, subtracting sleep, meals, commuting, and a few other activities I can foresee devoting another 30 to 40 hours a week until I am able to replace my current income. Once that is done I'll find a way to win and do what it is necessary to accomplish my long term goals.

Great goals John,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hi John, Thanks for the follow. Taking immediate massive action speaks to me... as long as there is a product. At that stage I am still in the process of designing it. All the best to you in your endeavors.

Thanks for your comment Larine, you are making an important point. I am not speaking of literally manufacturing a product but just of being clear about the added value I can bring to my target market.

Welcome to WA John and thanks for the follow!

Based on your profile description I would classify you (as one of my boarders constantly says), "technologically Amish" :-)

Kudos to you for taking immediate, massive action!

This is no get-rich-quick scheme and will require time, effort, perseverance and perhaps even a little frustration and thoughts of giving up. All normal! Don't. Give. Up.

Keep at it and soon you will be able to teach others to make money using the 'Bill Gates reference'!
