Hi everybody,
I figured it was time to update my profile since the last time I did it was the first day of starting with WA. It has only been 18 days but what I feel I have accomplished, along with what I've learned, is monumental to me.

I have been interested in online sales for years, but never found any decent instruction that wasn't some sort of scam. Some of them were pretty good at presenting their scam as not a scam but in a short period of time it became obvious.

I work through the lessons and sometimes it gets a little overwhelming so I back up and look over it again and before long I get it.

I live in upstate New York currently, with my two children. I have lived in quite a few places throughout the United States and worked construction my entire life. Not only am I sick of construction, and feel like I have given more than I've gotten from the industry and employers, I know there has to be a better way to survive financially. I am committed to this and will follow thru to prove one of two things to myself, either it works or it doesn't. I have an idea that it will and that's the direction I'm hoping this will lead.

I'm not looking to get rich quick, or even to get rich at all, but to provide a decent life for myself and my family in a field other than construction. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against making a lot of money, I'm just not going to place unrealistic or unnecessary expectations on this opportunity. If it turns out better than I thought then that will be even better.

Thanks for all the help,
Mike
OneUpper's Goals 3
Money Goals
1. Obviously the more money the better, but I am realistic. If I can earn enough to have some stability for myself and my family and afford some reasonable luxuries here and there I would be content. I have come to realize that wealth is not always defined by money, however the reality is we live in a world where money is somewhat proportional to the quality of our lives.
2. I would be ecstatic earning enough to pay off all debt and do a little traveling. It would be nice to also know that my children will be able to attend college and be able to provide them with some security that only money can provide.
3. I feel that the appropriate amount of time has yet to be revealed. I am new at this so I need to feel my way through it and I will have a more informed answer shortly I hope. In general I can tell you it is not uncommon for me to work 60 to 70 hours a week, so if the fruits of the labor begin to appear I could imagine myself putting that kind of time investment into this.

Nice goals Michael,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

I look forward to working with you :)

Thank you Carson, I appreciate the feedback. I'm sure I will have tons of questions but I do understand the basic concept so far. I think the questions will come when I approach the mechanics of actually putting a site together. Thanks again!

thanks for the follow...I know you will enjoy your time here at Wealth Affiliate. I knew next to nothing when I joined. I had been scammed 3 times for over 10K on other "opportunities."

Here are the 3 sites WA helped me build in 11 weeks:

myspineandjointpain.com
beakingofcontent.com
chronicpainreliefoptions.com

Regards,
Jeff

Don't worry, we were all newbies at one point along the way Michael. You are going to get the hang of this and as you move through the training, things are really going to start to fall in place for you. :)

I look forward to working with you and simply drop me a reply if you ever need a hand with anything.

PS. I hope you are having an awesome week thus far!
