Hey there, I am so happy you've completed your money goals, am sure they’re attainable. All the best, wish you success in your endeavors.

Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons. How to make money online video by Kyle As you go along the coursework, ask as many questions as you like to get clarifications, mark your question as community and someone will always be here to answer your inquiries. You can also blog your questions, that's the Pencil, top menu, choose Blog at WA. I believe there's a limit to blogging on the WA blog roll for the first three months.

Again you may like to post about why you choose WA, how you come about your niche, what are your goals for this week and the following, aspirations, etc.

Remember the WA community is no judgement. It is an open discussion. We help each other, we were all at one point where you are right now.

(The sky’s the limit however please be aware this is not a rich quick scheme however more like a long term commitment that takes months of consistent work.)

Welcome to WA.

Best wishes

Hello and welcome to the WA family. I hope you are settling in and finding your way around.

Those are excellent goals that you have set yourself. Remember that this is a journey and not a destination. There is a lot of work ahead, so the more effort you put in, the more you will get out of it.

Enjoy the excellent quality training from Kyle and just ask if you have any questions, as we are all here to help you and each other to achieve our goals.

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Norman! :)

Great goals here. The training will help you to understand how this works so you can gauge how much time you want to spend to achieve your goals. With your determination to do the training and to apply it, you will be amazed at how much you can achieve.

WA is a very friendly, helpful and active community. We like to help new comers achieve success. The Online Entrepreneur Training which is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

We do wish you much success.

Hi,

It is up to you that you make it work. You have the whole community behind you and they will help. Kyle welcomed you already. It is a great deal to be welcomed by the founder of a great program like this.

You may just need to focus on your free training and apply what you learn. Consider the possibility to stay longer and see where the road leads you.

Take your time, don’t rush, and avoid mistakes. Sometimes those are very costly. It is not a race, work towards the possibility of owning something great. I hope you enjoy your time at Wealthy Affiliate,

Thank you for taking the time to write this message. But right now my only question would be, and I know it can vary greatly, how long on average does it take for someone to be set up and earn at least $5 thousand per month to get started?

Hi again Joyce. I am trying to follow the training, and I have done websites in the past. But it was their statement that it only takes 30 seconds to set up websites today, made me immediately go for the premium and premium plus grograms without even getting started. Unfortunately I am finding it a strong challenge, but I will keep going as long as I can see I am making headway (which is yet to come).

Any thoughts or suggestions you might have, please feel free to present them.

I hope all is well with you and yours!

Thank you. Yes i will need some help if that is possible. I am not a computer kind of guy. My background is in Marketing.
That is what i thought this was all about, but this computer stuff is something else.

Can you, or someone you know, get me past the beginning phase?

Thank you for reaching out to me. That was very thoughtful.
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
When you say beginning phase, what are you referring to? I could try to help if I knew what that was.
Reply
NJohnston2 Premium Plus
The method of getting the site set up. Not the site itself as far as the marketing goes. It is the computer stuff i have a problem with...
Reply
NJohnston2 Premium Plus
The beginning phase to me is getting through that computer set up stuff.
Getting the site resd4y is not my problem as far as i know. Just getting it functional.
I understand marketing, just not computer information. When i grew up people did not have computers.
If you csn help ot would be much appreciated.

JrzyGrlBJ Premium
If you haven't done so already, I would say the very best place to start would be to the training lessons. This will take you step by step through the process of setting up your website. Each training lesson has tasks to perform at the end that actually help you build your site as you are going along through the training.

JrzyGrlBJ Premium
I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by computer set up stuff. Can you clarify a bit more?
Reply
NJohnston2 Premium Plus
Yes thank you. I agree but it is understanding the process as stated on the lesson. I jus4dt dont understand computers, or the explaination well enough to get through it.
When i get one done i can certsinly do more but it is this first one...
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
From the looks of things, I would say that you have accomplished everything that was in lesson one of the training. You set up your account, added a photo, created a bio, selected a premium membership, but have you listed any goals that you wish to achieve with your online business?
Monetary and/or lifestyle goals.
For example: How much money you like to earn in a month?
Would you like to be able to travel more often? These are examples of goals you could list.
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
I really can't help you learn about computers. Maybe a book on basic computer knowledge would help you get started.
When you say the explanation, do you mean the explanation of the lesson?
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
Have you watched the walk through video in the first lesson of the training? That should give you a better idea of what tools and resources you have access to on the platform.
Reply
NJohnston2 Premium Plus
Yes I have. But i will have to go through it again... (And again)
That is part of my problem. They don't just give you what you need. They give you everything that might be need or possibly just used.
That is where i get confused. I think.
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
Begin lesson two and take it step by step, task by task. If there is something you don't understand, go through it several times until you do. If you still don't understand, ask questions. There are people who have been here longer than I and know more than I that could possibly help you through things.

Just remember that you can take all the time you need. It's not a race and it is your business, so invest whatever time it takes for you to understand things better.

Use the live chat to ask people questions or click on the pencil icon next to the WA symbol, and click on ask a question. Then discuss what you don't understand and post your questions to the community. You will get many people willing to help you with different types of things. Just ask for help.

Very thoughtful and b3ery well said. I will put in the time because i want to be successful.
It is just that i have done other websites and they were completed and put online in about 2 to 3 hours. Then it was just a matter of changing the pages when needed.
The one I did is Funds4REI.com
I never had done one before, but it was real easy... And instructions were easily understood.
Reply
JrzyGrlBJ Premium
That is a good website.
Affiliate marketing business is a bit different because you will have to create numerous articles related to your niche. You will find all this out as you go through the Online Entrepreneur Certification Training (OEC). And since you are a premium plus member, you can take advantage of the additional training lessons developed just for premium plus members.

Remember it is not a race. Learn at your own pace. Review the lessons over as many times as you need to in order to understand them before performing the tasks.
ASK QUESTIONS!

Here's something that helped me through the lessons. I would view the lessons on my mobile device while using my laptop perform the actual tasks while I was learning them. If I didn't understand something I would stop the video lesson and play it back as many times as I had to in order to understand what it was telling me to do.

Hope I have been able to help you in some way.

Very kind if you, I guess I am just interested in getting online. What you have said makes good sense. All i need to do is relax, calm down and take it as it comes..(I haven't seen that guy in years,,,lol)
