About Phil
Joined March 2014
I am a serial entrepreneur and have been a business coach at many levels for a long time. (Longer than I want to admit. lol) I have coached some large corporations, but my heart and soul is small business: micro-business, home based businesses. I have been very high up in corporate America, lost it all, and now, I'm relying on Wealthy Affiliate and my own affinity towards hard work and a positive attitude to get me BACK ON TOP.

What seems relevant to me ... is not that Wral Weather is or isn't better or more useful than your WeatherWize site, but rather that Wral trended in the top 20 for search-strength. ... It's to say that, while WWize may in fact be more useful to some people, it's not known. .... So, how do you get a site known?

Raleigh, N.C. — The rain, winds and severe weather that have plagued central North Carolina are going nowhere fast, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said Wednesday. The slow-moving front brought soaking rains and occasional heavier downpours to ..."

Thought this might interest you after checking out your site "weather-wize.com" Is it relevant to your project?

Yes, but WeatherWize is so much more than weather information. There is almost an overload of that right now. But we are the only company that mashes up the Big Data of all the weather data - it doesn't matter what kind of weather it is - and all the demographic data. So we can tell, in real time, 1)The Weather, 2) Where it happened, (down to 16 Square Feet!) 3) Who's property it is, 4) Who the insurance company is, and 5) through 15) all kinds of other interesting data. No one else does this. The weather report contained in your message above is about 15% of what we do and we do it 24 hours a day for everything in the U.S. East of the Rocky Mountains. That, Emme, is a little bit on WeatherWize - a company three years in the making. This is one of the companies that my Private Message to you was talking about.

Thanks Chris. I posted on your profile a couple of weeks ago about "following you" and about how I am a pilot and other flying stuff, but I must not have gone ahead and hit the "FOLLOW" button. Anyway, I'm glad that we are connected now and I wish you the best of luck.

Hi coach phil---Yep I been there and had to reinvent myself---I came to WA to do that 5 years ago---You have the back ground to succeeded online for sure--Just give yourself so time to go through the lessons ---do not skip around --try to only work on two websites at a time to learn. If you want your on niche start with the green button---and if you want to promote WA first start with the Affiliate bootcamp first --complete one are the other first before starting a second website.

Make a goal of one year to make it online ---do not look at any other program in that time --put that old blinders on--- make sure you ask for help when you need it---

Coach Ed, Thanks so much for the advice and the input. Just so you know, I think I have been "jumping around"...well not jumping around but I left Affiliate Bootcamp, went to Get Started Here and then left that at Lesson 4 of Course 1, build my website and now I need to promote that site so that takes me back to the Courses. Also I will do Affiliate promoting at the same time. I have the advantage of being able to type almost as fast as I can talk and that was part of your profile that amazed me. The dedication and WORK and commitment YOU demonstrated in taking your experience and applying it to W.A. and Internet Marketing and getting super-high ranking in Google. That's a great testament to hard work! I also am a very hard worker. My issue is I have so many wonderful ideas of how to use technology in Marketing and in HELPING PEOPLE that I get aggravated when I have to sleep. I've aged a lot in the month I've been at W.A. Circles under my eyes... a touch more padding under the belt, because I feel like I HAVE to get something going on line that starts to provide some income and then I can sleep, then I can exercise right. I know this is wrong and not healthy, but the issue is that with so many great ideas in my head and so many ways of making money - as soon as an engine/machine is built - then it makes you want to stop and build the machine. One of the people I PM with the other day was complaining about having "inspiration/writer's block". I know this is a real thing, but at the moment, I have the opposite problem. There are so many great concepts and AREAS TO HELP that I can't turn my brain off and stop writing. It's not HERE at W.A.....YET...but it will be. Right now, things are in white papers that I've written. Reports, we used to call them...now they're called "white papers".....any way, that's my situation. I value your insightful advise and help. Coach Phil

Hi Phil. I read your profile and the fact that you had success, lost it and now are on the road to another (successful) venture is really most interesting to me. It is going to be very inspiring for me to witness your comeback. I wish you only the best in all of your endeavors and, by the way, thank you for the follow.

Thanks Cliff!! The roller coaster has been a really big one....way, way up, way down, waaaaay up again, waaaay down again. I've lived in Africa and conducted business meetings in London and Paris and a bunch of stuff like that! I got tired of people saying, "You have to write a book! That's incredible!" Soooo, one of my goals is to make enough money here, have an automated money stream set up so I can write that book!! Reach out to me any time. I'll do what ever I can to help.

I only meant we're sort of in the same boat, after reading your profile post, above. I just recently disconnected from a rather high paying job, myself, relatively (to the nursing profession) speaking. And, personally, I'd like to make as much online, as I'm sure you would.

First you must buy the domain.
See my shout for the day on GoDaddy codes.


NOTE: We are actually only pointing the domain to WA.
This is different and NOT actually transferring it.

Hi. I assume you bought a domain name and want to host it here at WA?
If so, you need to go to the admin where you bought it, go to your MANAGE DOMAINS, select the domain name, go to DNS or NS or SERVER settings and change/customize:
ns1.blahblah.com t and ns2.blahblah.com
to the following;
[The name servers for Wealthy Affiliate Hosting ALWAYS are]
ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com
This will take anything from 1 hour to 24 hours to "work".
Then you can add it using the BUILD MY WEBSITE button on the left here.
Then you can login and add your choice of Wordpress theme.
Reply
Phil Premium
OK. As I understand it, there is a domain hosted at HostGator.com or GoDaddy.com. Then that domain gets pointed to W.A. where WA does the hosting, right? If I have to pay $4, $5, or $6 to obtain to get the name registered and then I pay $4 or $5 or $6 to have the URL hosted at GoDaddy or HostGator, then I don't really have a "free website", do I? The hosting is free, the WP templates are free, the university is free, but I still have the registration and hosting costs. Am I correct?
Reply
OldMule Premium
You pay for the "domain name at say GoDaddy - every year as every one does, (no free here anywhere except lure you in on a promo..).

No name - no need to host. No website.

Take name to a host, free monthly at WA, - build a site form your dashboard - free.

Internetgranny Premium
Hi Phil. I just noticed you in chat and came to look you up. You only need to buy the domain name (and then renew it yearly). The hosting here is free. As a Premium member you can have as many free siterubix websites as you like. If you are not familiar with Wordpress you may want to start a siterubix site just to practise, try out different themes, etc. But as a Premium member, you should get your own domain name eventually. It really doesn't cost much. Do NOT get hosting anywhere, ONLY the domain name. You get hosting here for free.

Kyle. Still not used to one of the founders reaching out to me. That's so cool. I'm making a 12 hour commitment to W.A. today. I am staying on track the best I can. There is so much. For example, in Veronica's article: "6 Ways to Make Money with a WordPress Blog", she had various links in part of her article. I clicked on a few of those, which led to a few more and 75 minutes is gone before I realize it! Good information and stuff I will use in the future, but not helping me with my goal of getting the foundation built as quickly as possible.

In that article there were a couple of links where there is WA teaching on website promotion where one already has their own product. In my initiatives, I already have the products - cutting edge lead generation products - this is what I will be selling on two of these sites. Veronica had a link to your teaching on this particular topic. I will be going there soon and any other hints you can drop my way will be appreicated.

This whole WA thing is off the chain..almost too good to be true in this era of paper-mache' programs and websites.

Thanks again. It's also fun to see my rank number starting to drop. I've been pretty active.

Great to see you making good progress and the idea incubator running wild. :) The first step is understand the process of building out your website, getting ranked and getting traffic. Once you understand this process, the "revenue" part is going to come very easy. :)

Hey Phil how are things going so far? I just thought I would check in and see how you are getting along so far. I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I know there is a lot for you to take in at once and I don't want you to feel overwhelmed when you are starting out. I am here to help you out if you ever need a hand with anything. Just let me know and I would love to point you in the right direction and get you started.

Hey Mr. Scott Dogg,
I just did a big answer to Kyle. I think you can see that, although I really don't know how this discussion board works yet. If you can see what I said to Kyle, a lot of that applies here in this answer to you.

I came to WA with four or five (or six, or more) niche websites already in mind. Two of those will contain access to software that has been over three years in development with a major university. Later today I'm going to go "premium" and you can PM me and we'll go into it more.

In short, I'm not happy with MY performance and over-joyed, blown away and thrilled with W.A's performance. The ball is in my court.

Talk to you soon, Bro. Thanks for checking on me.

Hi Phil,
I'm glad that you are loving WA and I know you are going to love premium. If you already have all of these websites then you just need to plug in the training from WA to make them successful. You will get the hang of how the discussion board works after you are here a while. I already have sent you my welcome PM message. I want you to go over the message and let me know if you need help in any one certain area.

The ball is definitely in your court and you have me cheering for you as well as an entire community of people who want to see you succeed. If you have any questions or need my help with anything let me know and I would love to answer them for you.

Hey Phil, sorry I missed you in chat. I saw you were asking about the affiliate program here at WA.

You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Phil:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

Thanks Kyle. Will do. I was going to switch over to Premium before I get way crazy in any promotion, but I am getting ready to get crazy. LOL. I'll do the Affiliate Bootcamp as quickly as I can. I cant' believe the co-founder of the company actually talks with people in chat. That's waaaay cool.

LOL, it happens Phil. It is exciting once you get rolling and you realize the massive opportunity that resides online. The reason we created WA was so we could help others and even though we have grown a lot since 2005, we have never lost sight of our roots.

Every decision we make is with the community's best interest in mind and I think you will come to really see this as you move forward within WA.

I know you are going to love Premium and if you need a hand with anything else going forward, let me know. :)

Thanks!!! 2nd Day with W.A. This community seems to really be the "REAL DEAL". No hype. No up-sell. Just good people that want me to succeed. What a breath of fresh air! I've been around the barn a few times myself. I've got several years in business development and I'm looking forward to applying what I've coached for years to my own businesses - businesses that will be promoted and developed inside the W.A. formula. I'll try to catch your blog tomorrow. That sounds very good.

Hello Phil and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!! My name is Scott and I am here to help you get started making money online. Before you even think about making money though I want to let you know about a few things that is critical to your success here at WA.

1. You are building a business and this will take quite some time. You are not going to see success overnight or in a week. It will happen but you need to work really hard at this and devote some time to it each day.

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.

4. If you want to have a successful website that is going to get ranked for lots of awesome low competition keywords. You are going to need a keyword research tool that is reliable, accurate, and is always up to date. With Jaaxy you will get all of this, and so much more. You can sign up for your Free trial account at www.jaaxy.com and get your first 30 searches for Free.

5. Try to not get discouraged or overwhelmed because there is lots of information for you to learn here. There is plenty of help here within the community so if you ever get stuck or need any help pop over to live chat and ask questions.

HOW TO SETUP YOUR ACCOUNT

Step 1. Upload a picture of yourself, This doesn't have to be a picture of yourself but it helps people get to know you better here.

Step 2. Write a little bit about yourself in your Bio. You could use this area to introduce yourself to the community and tell a little about what you would like to achieve within WA.

Filling out your profile is a very important step in getting started here. You will get 10 times more help when you do this. People feel like they can connect with you on a personal level and they are more inclined to follow you as well.

HOW TO GET STARTED ON YOUR FIRST TRAINING LESSON

You can view your first lesson here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1 This is a 10 lesson course that will walk you through the process of choosing a niche, getting your website setup and how to write your first page of content.

This is designed so that you can check off each task as you complete it.

There is absolutely no obligation for you to upgrade to premium and you can stay a Free member for as long as you like. You will just have limited resources using your free account. However, if you are serious about making money online and you would like to make a career out of Internet marketing then you should really consider checking out the premium membership for at least one month.

Thanks Scott. I am just starting to go through the material. I love the community concept as compared to so many other places where I was constantly being "sold" and "up-sold". I look forward to being a leader in the future. I feel I have some valuable insights that will be helpful to many, but FIRST, I have to get into the community and get my account set up and all of that activity, as well.

Thanks again. I look forward to communicating with you!

Hey Phil,
Take your time going through the lessons and if you need to go over it a couple times that is fine. I had to go over the lessons 2 or 3 times myself. You won't find any up sells, down sells or anything like that at WA. If you do decide to join the premium membership which is totally up to you. You will find that once you join you will never have anything sold to you ever.

As a matter of fact it's in the list of no no's at WA. That is what I love about this place, they focus on helping you and not on trying to take your money. I really am looking forward to working with you Phil and if you ever need any help or have any questions let me know.

I love your profile and I think the picture you have up now looks great. It sounds like you have had previous experience in this kinda work and so this gives you a head start. Wealthy Affiliate can get you back on top and get you up to date with what works today and what doesn't work.

Stick with the training and if you get stuck or have any questions along the way let me know.
