Hello Joel,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

My main hub is brandonacox.com, but it's down for another hour or so while I move it over to SiteRubix. I also oversee pastors.com, rewiredsocial.com and too many others. Linkedin.com/in/brandonacox.

Hi Joel,

I see that you got your account set up here at WA. Congrats!

I really believe the key to this business is designating a set amount of time to your education.

If you consistently work on the Getting Started course, you'll build your website and online business at the same time.

I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the place to start.

It'll take you through the whole process.

Just click the green"Get Started Here" button up on the left.

Best of luck and keep working towards your goals.

I've written 5 books: The Crucified Church, The Crucified Couple, Communicate to Lead, Whole 4 Life, and Walking to & with, Jesus. The following is taken from the "About the Author" section of one of my books:

"Pastor Joel is the lead and founding pastor of Mill Pond Church in Newington, Connecticut. Mill Pond started with fifteen people, mostly teens, in the Rissinger’s living room. Today it is a thriving church which has assisted two other new church plants in central CT.

Pastor Joel has been in fulltime ministry since 1992. In this capacity, he has led several congregations through major transitions prior to planting Mill Pond Church in 2007. This included leading two congregations out of doctrinal heresy as part of the Worldwide Church of God. Later, he would help take a 118-year-old church from an inwardly focused, program-centered approach, to a purpose-driven philosophy, and ultimately a merger with two other local churches.

In addition to his pastoral duties, Pastor Joel has served as the Director of Church Multiplication for Converge Northeast (Baptist General Conference), chaplain for The ABC Women’s Center of Middletown, Connecticut; the New England Regional Coordinator for The Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development, a seminar presenter for Life Innovation’s popular Prepare-Enrich marriage counseling program, a popular speaker for Iron Sharpens Iron, and as a speaker with the John Maxwell Group.

Pastor Joel has a BA in theology from Ambassador University, as well as MAs in both religion and religious education from Liberty University. He is a D.Min. candidate with the Antioch School in Ames, Iowa. He as done training and coaching with multiple organizations including the Better Business Bureau, Coorstek Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary International, and multiple churches. He is the winner of the Northeast Christians at Work "Most Helpful Speaker" award for 2015."

Hi Joel,

Sounds like you have an awesome life and some great skills.

Great to have you here and I hope you get a chance to dive into the training this week.

You've found the right place to help you create a real online business with huge potential that also helps people. It's a unique opportunity.

I want to make sure you get off to the right start. Check out this post by the owner Kyle before you choose a domain name or niche business idea. Hope all is well and let me know if you have any questions,

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! :)

Great stuff so far--really enjoying the training!

Aloha Joel,
Welcome to WA!
I've just been here a few months, but I've already learned a lot and created a website that's getting some traffic.

Kyle & Carson have put together an awesome program here and it's made very strong by engaging the collective wisdom of the WA community.

It takes time and effort, but results do come if you stick with it.

Hi Joel,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. My name is Todd and I referred you here to Wealthy Affiliate through my website Learn To Grow Wealth Online.

I hope you really enjoy your week here at WA. There is a ton of info & training here, so absorb it like a sponge.

I personally started by taking the classes one day at a time and then simply took action on what I learned and I couldn't be happier with my online business.

I Make Money While I Sleep, Isn't That Cool

That being said, before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions and interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their financial goals.

- Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach at WA.. I would also strongly encourage you to follow the Top 100 Friends here at WA and to take a look at their Blogs, Training's & Websites located under their profile pictures here at WA.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link.. .

This is the first course on the Wealthy Affiliate Entrepreneur Program, and the best next step you can take. This is where I started my online business and I think you'll be pleased with the results.

3) Don't be afraid to ask questions. WA is a super friendly community, especially to newbies, so there are no dumb questions here.

Remember that you can ask any question you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here..


You can also use the search bar above like Google search, just start typing in your question and you will find blogs/tutorials/classes/and Webinars that can answer your questions.

If you don't find the answer, you can always type the question below the search bar results and the WA community will help you out right away.

I'm following you now and here's my Wealthy Affiliate profile if you want to contact and/or follow me.

You have everything you need here at WA to create a successful online business, you just need to take advantage of the education, community support, and TAKE ACTION on what you learn.

I wish you the most success with your online business and goals.
