About Nicci
Joined December 2013
Hi there! I came to the USA about 10 years ago and as an immigrant, I truly believe that America is "The Land of Opportunity". I feel extremely privileged to be here and have come to love this new country with all it's "opportunities".

Before settling down I spent a long period of time on the open seas satisfying my thirst for travel to dreamy destinations. Yup, I was living the dream so to say. Working hard and then playing hard, but it all had to end sometime, right? Time to grow up and take responsibility, so with that being said what I hope to achieve in the weeks and months to come is to invest my time in researching, learning and applying any knowledge I can find to create a successful online business.

This isn't my first attempt at Affiliate Marketing, and a couple of years ago while perusing a jobs board I stumbled upon my first Affiliate/Network Marketing opportunity and thought I'd give it a whirl. I was so completely overwhelmed from the word go and spent nights awake wondering where to begin with everything that was presented to me. At that time, as I worked through the so called program I had the sickening feeling that I was being duped. I was slowly manipulated into signing up for more and more "products" which all cost a small fortune... money spent which I couldn't afford. After 2 months of "investing" with no return and with very little help plus confusing tutorials I threw in the towel and gave up on my dream of working on an online business from home!! Of course I felt like the proverbial "Loser/Failure" and realized that I had been scammed, BUT here I am giving it a second chance and like a stubborn mule I'll persist until I discover all the secrets and work this "machine" out to what will hopefully be a successful online business. This time though I feel unusually optimistic ;)

Thanks Mariette. I share your passion for animals and hate cruelty just as much as you do and it reminds me of a little quote I read not so long ago that I'd like to share with you:

“Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”

― Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality

Rings true doesn't it?

All the best in your new adventures :)

Agree absolutely! (how can I not?)
Ghandi said this: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
To Australia's shame, they are exporting live farm animals for slaughter in third-world countries, mainly the Middle East, and there they meet horrifically cruel deaths by inhumane slaughter methods which are not tolerated in Australia. It's insane! It's all about money of course, compassion does not come in to it. Had my whinge - feel better now, thanks! (Don't think I'm sitting still for this to continue happening.)

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Nicci! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals

I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!

And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Nicci :)

Hey Nicci!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate :)

Today I wanted to stop by and welcome you to our Community for Internet Entrepreneurs! In the coming days you are going to work through our getting started training that will teach you about the potential of Internet marketing. You will be able to get started right away and begin building your online business.

A few pointers as you get started are to ask lots of questions, and familiarize yourself with what is offered at WA. Our services are vast, and you now have everything that you need at your fingertips. Here is a link to the "Getting Started" course:


I look forward to working with you soon, I will be here to help at each step of the way :)

Hey Nicci! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):

1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.

Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.

After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.

2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.

3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.

4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!

On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.

I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!

I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.

Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!

You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl

P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c

Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
