MCSE = Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer

We have been here 3+ years. Initially, like most new people we were very active in WA which took time away from our income. We are a Small Consulting Firm based in the United States. We have Professional Programmers, Administrators, and Writers on Staff. Most of our employees are in Asia (Bangladesh, Australia, and India) Our online ventures started in 2008. We don't follow Anyone, but we take ideas from Everyone. We are basically IT people. We make our own path and it has served us well in life.

I am Keith, taking over for Jay for a bit.

I am Jay. I am a legally Blind Stroke Victim. I hold 7 degrees and Certifications in Human Behavior, Management, Music and Information Technology. With my Brain being my advantage in life, I was terrified of my strokes. The strokes dropped me from the 97 Percentile to the 93 Percentile which is still good considering the average human is in the 49 Percentile.

We did really well financially in another program by buying upsells for more skills. We came here to reduce our monthly budget and because I wanted to prove if my partner could do it, then I could. I was wrong. WA is not that kind of program.

If you are a financially challenged beginner then you should do well. WA is a great place to start. If you follow Kyle you should eventually earn income of some kind. He will take you from the first grade to where you can go, We are neither financially challenged nor beginners... but we get tidbits from WA just the same.

WA has given me a few GREAT ideas which starting in 2017 should yield great income. Finally, we have been approved to work with the US Government. This will result in much default income.

Our goal is to double our income to $20,000 per month in 2017. WA is VERY SOCIAL. We are Technical people.

A very encouraging message. It is what I needed to hear. You know I constantly go through ups and downs like everyone else. However, I can't stop. I just feel that this is going to lead to something spectacular in my life. I will keep in touch. You really do motivate me. Thanks!

Good evening Jay,

You do not consider yourself social but you do find the time to follow more than 15.000 people? Amazing!
I am completely untechnical, well, on the computer/internet, I actually hate machines. This little laptop was forced on me by the end of 2013. I consider myself belonging to the hand written letter generation. I love designing and building and my fish ponds, flower beds, pergola and similar still stand I am proud to say.
I always say this to the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, some great things can be found there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Wow you sound so interesting. Your bio, is great to read. How you devises your work and information. Interesting. I am so following you guys! I on the other hand are, one of those financially challenged beginners, with very little IT knowledge; enjoying all that I am learning here. So thank you for your info and a very warm hello from New Zealand.

No questioning your talent Jay, despite the additional challenges you face. As a newcomer, it was good to hear a balanced perspective on WA from someone who has had a longer term involvement. I am not going to wish you good luck as you don't need it. On the face of it, I get the impression that you have talent in spades and are already successful.

That's very encouraging for anyone who's had any serious illness affecting the brain including dreaded stroke on the actual and relative drop in brain percentile. For people who can't do tests to measure it, then it can be horrible to know you aren't what you once were and if that gets the better of someone it can make them sort of give up on some level and really underperform, but you just gave it perspective!

And I love your profile pic! Yeah, there is a social aspect here but I guess the challenge is to use it wisely and there's some good in it too.

There is LOTS OF GOOD in WA. It needs no defense. It does what it says it does.

Jay, it is great to meet someone who understands WA.
I personally see WA much the same as you do. I do pick
up tidbits. And I have increased my monthly income since
joining in June 2014.

You will reach your goal in 2017 and possibly more.
It is out there. Good health to you Jay. You can do it!

Hi Jay. I too spent too much time being distracted at first because for my desire to help people. I felt like I had to get involved with everyone. Now I also need to concentrate on how to refine my projects to monetize them. I'll try to check in from time to time.

Hey wow!! first of all thank you for the follow and I'd love to follow back as from what I read you guys got some inspirational footage to teach most of us. Secondly, a profile like that is surely a result of some real accomplishments, well done. Your spirit, as you said not being with financially challenged aims, can truly soar high, attract more of its kind and hopefully pull others along.... amazing!!

Thank you for having introduced yourselves in here and for making part of our network. Wishing you all the best. I'd be delighted to know more of you.

Cheers

Your profile confuses me. So are you here or not? Are you criticizing WA for its business model or learning from it? And if you're not learning from it, why are you still here? Lastly, as a six-figure earner for much of my adult life with an MBA, I take offense to your elitist-sounding comments about income and educational brackets.

Hi there and thank you for following me. I am following you too. From reading your profile, I am very surprised that you are still with WA. I am sure you have your reasons and, as a proud and reasonably intelligent newbie, I wish you much success.
Take care.

I thought I could funnel people through WA but the Feds have rejected WA for the 2nd time. I like WA. No matter how poorly you do, there is always someone to say good job. Sometimes we even find a nugget or two.

Hi there, I saw your somewhat different profile and decided to give you a follow, just for the fun of it. It's good to have confidence in yourself. I also make more than 6 figure income, just not online, moving my business there is my goal. Any insides helpful ;-)

Back in 2012 we were grossing $20,000 per month... but we were in a more business related program and far less social.
one advantage we had was we were successful business people who were not broke. Most of our income comes from our expertise in Programming and Consulting. We haveManny websites but we also have a staff of expert people. BUT we have 3 websites that are exploding right now.

Our goal for 2017 is to get back to $20K per month.

We have 4800 people who could benefit from online training like WA. However I think I will look for a program with more experienced management. WA is a fine program if you know nothing to start with.

I'm confused.......I read your bio, the "update" stated you are leaving the WA community....but then I received a "follow" just today....well, I guess you're still here, whether or not you plan to stay, or make an exit, I found your bio most interesting. I'm just under 2 months, and this is the 1st bio I've read from a company. I believe this is the right platform for me, considering that I am a beginner, but it's interesting to note that there are people that have a lot more experience than I, were successful in an online business, before joining this community, and have been here for several years.....go figure....

I'd be curious to know, what caused you to "follow" me, but regardless, thank you. I wish you, all of you, well in all your future endeavors.

We follow many people purely at random. You are no different than most people at WA. Yes, we left WA but there were so many Emails I wanted to see what they were saying. WA is so cheap it attracts a certain type of person.

I picked WA because my Partner was Very successful in another program. I wanted to prove if He could do it, I could do it. I was wrong. We are well Educated Conservative Americans. We embrace all. BUT we do have our views. We do many things.

Hmmm.....I'm reading some of your other comments......it doesn't seem that you think too highly of WA.....yet, here you are.....I'm a firm believer that, no matter how good or great something is, it won't appeal to everyone......to each his own. I'm somewhat curious about your thoughts, but not enough that would warrant further response....all the best in your endeavors.

Just the opposite. I think WA is GREAT for any Type 6 person who is just starting out with limited funds. WA will work and I plan on adding many people to it if I can get approval.

I am not some Liberal high school grad who knows only one thing and says worthless things about it. I do confuse some people but I do try to simplify my responses for some.

Hello,

I got a wrong preception that only by collecting most networks will help to boast my rank. I never response to the members joining my profile. I was wrong. Please pardon me didn't mean to ignore you. I swear, til NOW, I dont really know how this thing works. Or maybe Im not that serious to develop and maintain with all my heart? Too lazy to learn has no patience? My own confussion and desperation blocking me to pursue further, though admitting the community response here is such a two thumbs up support!
God bless you there. Thank you for all your effort to help me and both of us success with WA.

Thanks,
MLW

Rank is something used to increase activity at wa. Blog 3 times per day and ask a question a couple of times a week and your rank will Skyrocket. It means nothing and does not increase Revenue. I have been an ambassador before but never again because I will not devote that much time to wa.

Thanks for your great info, Izpo! This enlighten me. So Im not aiming to be on the top rank that much anymore, instead I'll try hard to start earning. My own website still disaster, dont know wheter I'll be able to finish it properly of what I did. Been over 3 months now! If I cant finish it, how can I earn, ihikz.... :( :)

I am so sorry to have just gotten back to WA ... I lost my Mom and family stuff going on ... now you all are departing!

I absolutely want what is best for all of you and your company.

Thank you for the GOOD WORDS for WA though ... I am a beginner and believe I am in the right place.

Be well.

Thank you for the follow from all of you at IZPO. I am sorry to hear that you are moving on from WA, but it sounds like you have outgrown it.
I am very new at this, so there is plenty here for me to learn. Anything you would like to share to help us become successful and more focused in this business is appreciated. It sounds like paid advertising is the way to go eventually. Any additional information you would like to add to WA's PPC training? Or anything at all?
