About Stevejf
Joined February 2014
My name is Steve Foster and I'm from the UK.

I've worked in IT for many years, mainly support and netwoking, but am out of it now as far as being an employee is concerned anyway.

I'm here at wealthy affiliate because I seriously want to work from home and finally be my own boss! I've put up with a lot of rubbish over the years in the work place as I'm sure many others have too. All I'm looking for is a way to pay the bills (and maybe a bit extra, no delusions of becoming rich here) and do it while being free of all the nonsense I've found in the various places I've worked.

There are also other activities that I am involved in which are very important to me. If I can make this work it would allow me the flexibility to pursue those activities to a greater extent.

I researched before coming here and realise it will take a lot of work and patience to succeed at this and I'm up for it. My IT experience should hopefully help with the technical side of things, but we'll see.

You have some very ambitious goals Steve! I know they're achievable because I've been able to do them. In fact my wife is still at home because of this business. So if I can do it, you can! It will just take time and patience. But as long as you're willing to run this marathon and not stop until you reach the finish line, you'll achieve all this and more!

Hi Eddy, I signed up here after having a good read around your site. You helped ease my mind about wealthyaffiliate what with all the scams out there so thanks for that.
Thinking about it my goals might be a bit too ambitious. I'm realistic enough to know it might not happen like that, but there again who knows. You're proof that it is possible. I'm going to give it my best effort anyway.

Hey Steve, Thanks for trusting in me and my recommendation. It means a lot because I know how many scams are out there and how people become jaded and don't trust anyone.

I'm confident as you continue to use the site, you'll see more and more why I recommend this place and why I'm here! Your goal is ambitious but if we don't shoot for the stars what's the point?

Eventually you will get there. You might only start with small wins at first but then it's just scaling those wins up so you get to the point you desire. It's a long road but it is feasible and can happen my friend! You already have the right mindset and some other great skills that will serve you well here. So I have no doubt that you will be a success. I'll be here with you either way!

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Stephen! :)

After you go to build my website you should see a action tab to the right that says details, move, delete. You click on details and it should bring up log in information on how to get into your website to start building it. You don't need to worry about the websites tab to the left. If your site got moved over to your domain successfully, you should see a link to the admin page where you log in. You just need to get your password from the details button.

gtrtchr43, thanks, but the problem is (I can't seem to get anyone to understand this) there is no details, move or delete. There is nothing which is my point. Fortunately I use lastpass and was able to retrieve my password from there. If it hadn't been for that there would be no way for me to get my password, not from within my WA account anyway. Thanks for your reply.

Hey Stephen, Thanks for giving us so much details about yourself and goals! It sounds like you really understand what this will take. And I definitely think your IT background is going to be an asset because you won't have the same fear of technology that many of the newbies have when creating a website and such.

So I think you already have a distinct advantage. Now it's just a matter of learning the marketing part. Now that you're part of the WA family, that's all taken care of.

I'm excited to see what you do here. But I'll be here for you either way!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Stephen!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)

Hey Stephen!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image


Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(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 me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Stephen!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)

P.S. If you have any doubts that this business is real or if it will work for you, check this little article out: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/workathomecareerscom/blog/is-this-business-even-real/ When you see what companies are already involved in this business, it's going to be eye opening!

Eddy I'm so sorry! I'm used to spelling it as Eddie and completely missed it. My apologies.

It's okay Steve! Everyone spells it the other way or the wrong way as I like to say. LOL It's all good.

Eddy I'm not sure, but I think you might have me confused with a different Steve? I did spell your name correctly and you mentioned that what we've met on your blog. That wasn't me, but glad to meet you anyway.

EddySalomon Premium
Stephen, Forget it. I see what happened now. The most important thing is that you are here. And what I meant when I said we met at my blog is that you were at my blog and read my recommendation about WA and that's what led you here.

But don't worry about all this. LOL

Doh! Lets start again. Pleased to meet you Eddy. I know I put Stephen, but Steve is probably better, less formal. Stephen is what my parents would call me if I was in trouble LOL!
