About RickD1
Joined August 2016
I have been a business owner for most of my life. Awhile back I hurt my back had some operations and now I'm not able to work standing on my feet for 70-80 hours a week. So that's why I am here, to learn a new business that I can do from my home and still support my kids. I am excited to learn something new and get started in my online business.

Hey Rick! Thanks for the post on my wall. I did actually have a question that has me a bit hesitant before I continue and go premium.

I was curious to know that if you have to have your site set up like a blog, or if you could have it set up as an e-store and use social media for you "blogging"

Best regards,
Tanner
Reply
RickD1 Premium
Hey Tanner, yes you can have an e-store. I doubled checked to make sure I was right. You would just have to add a plug-in called woocommerce...

For what its worth this is a great place to learn and with the community its the best program out there.

All the best,

RickD.

Thank you so much Rick. That does help a TON in my decision.

Would that at all effect how to commissions work?
Reply
RickD1 Premium
It will all be based on the companies payout. I have seen 2% all the way up to 100%. You set up all your own accounts, so you can see what the payout is and you can decide to use them or someone else.
Reply
Gotcha. Thanks for all your help Ricky. I was just curious to know because it wouldn't shoot them over to their site, so I was unsure if I would need to send that company data or if they would receive it. I probably need to get in contact with someone who already has a functioning site similar to that. Let me know if you meet anyone who does!

The training and the community here are the best! I first came to WA due to illness, one that I knew would eventually interfere with my ability to hold a traditional job. Today I am glad to say that I am much healthier since I had a double lung transplant a year ago! I appreciate my health journey as it allows me to focus on what is really important in my life, and to work in a way that benefits me and not the corporation I happen to work for!

Cheers,
Erin

I am so happy to hear you are doing much better. I can't imagine what a hard road you had. Here I am complaining about a few back operations.

I am so happy to have met you, and so glad that your health is getting much better. We defiantly need to keep in touch.

All the best,

What you have been through is significant - back pain can take its toll and so often it cannot even be diagnosed! I would complain if I was you, back pain is the worst. But it is also what brought you here, at this time in your life...

Your right about that, I wish I would have stuck with it when I first signed up. But, its too late for that. Its funny because when I signed up it was right after I put money into a different system.

Its was BS and a waste, so I was a little soured. I'm here now working at it about 12 - 15 hours a day. Difference is it doesn't feel like work.

I can't wait to wake up and either finish what I was doing or work on the next thing. I love that I found WA and I love that I love working at it. (a lot of love going on here)

I really feel like my success is right around the corner.

All the best,

RickD.

Rick,

At this time in your life, you are meant to have that excitement, that feeling that it is not work that you are doing. Keep that loving feeling alive, LOL.

It is a part of being human that we make mistakes and wish for things after the fact. I bet that you were not ready when you first signed up, I know that I was not. Then again, the WA of days past was not nearly as good as the WA of today:-)

Enjoy This Day,
Erin

RickD1 Premium
Erin,

I know your right I'm sure I was not ready. Coming off a scam I wasn't in the right frame of mind. So, now I will keep that loving feeling... haha

I wish we could look forward before we pass on something. but maybe that would get old after a while. I don't suppose we would learn all those lessons if we could see in the future.

All the best,

RickD.

I am now following you as well, I'm doing better, and my business is starting to grow. I know it says I have been a member since 8/2016

I did sign up then and forgot all about it. Until July 1st 2017 that's when I actually started. So I have been working steady for 2 months now and its really coming along.

Keep in touch and if you need anything just ask. If I don't know I will help you find the answer!

I am glad to hear your sites are starting to generate revenue, I actually started July of this year. Well, actually signed up back in 2016 but never did anything with it.

I am glad I did get going this July, I'm hoping my site will start generating income soon too.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey Rick,

I just wanted to see how you were doing. I hope you are finding Wealthy Affiliate to be very accommodating! The best thing you can do first is set up your profile on WA. Below is a video of how to set it up if you need it.. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community, because people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

After you do that, go ahead and get started with the training. It will show you and tell you, step by step, exactly what you need to do to build your business.

Again, if you are having any trouble please don't hesitate to reach out! Message me and I will help you with whatever you are having trouble with. I can't help if you don't ask!

Hey there Rick and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! My name is Karissa, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and I am here to help you along the way. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, please let me know.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will help you take action on daily tasks, which will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Getting Started" HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that you will be given:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to Kyle (the co-founder)! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, he will be there and he is a BIG help.
(3) You will also get the "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (for action takers ready to get started). You don't have to go Premium, so don't feel pressured.

Anyway, I thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know :) It is AWESOME to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,
Karissa
