Hi friends! Another update is in order as I've hit the 3 year mark at WA! If you care to read, the blog is on the right. :)

April 4th, 2016:

Hey guys! I've come a long way with WA, but there's still so far to go! Instead of boring you in my profile description, please check out my blog, "First $200 and $250 months on amazon." A lot of my progress, failures, successes, and personal life lessons are in that post! Hopefully it will inspire you if you're just starting out, or even if you've been here awhile! For humble beginnings, read on..

Written December 2014:

I'm a very passionate person with interests/hobbies ranging from beatmaking, painting, graphic design, fishing, bowling, and a ton of other stuff that I won't bore you with. I have a B. F. A. in Graphic Design, and work as a freelance designer while I look for a job in my field.

In my life I was told (and still am told) that I am very talented, or that I have a gift. The problem is I do not know how to market it. For instance, I can paint and draw, and have a very subtle ear for music. I make beats as well, and have worked with different artists over the years. I always felt like if I could reach a wider audience, the sky was really the limit on what I could accomplish.

That said, marketing and promotion have always eluded me. Maybe it's because I was given bad info, (or hazy info) or gave in to "get rich quick" schemes too fast, convincing myself that quick cash would make me happier.

In the past, money and passion have always been separated for me somehow. Either because I felt like my hobby was just a hobby, or the doubt that came with realizing the potential of profiting from something I love to do. This site has given me the confidence and the knowledge to make me see that anything is possible with the right foundation.

As good as that just sounded, I still have my doubts. I guess it's because I've been raised (like most people) inside what "Postman" (marketer) calls "The Paycheck Paradigm". We are told our entire lives that we must go to school, get an education, earn a degree, and find a job working for somebody else. Even just a few years back it sounded kinda suspect to me, but today I can tell you that it is THE absolute most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. We weren't put on this earth to slave for somebody else doing things that we hate. Even if it's something that we love doing, why work for someone else doing it? Why should we limit ourselves to how many physical hours we can put in per week?

That being said, I do realize that the job I have now which I don't like very much (working in a bakery) affords me the opportunities to make the moves that I am currently trying to make. Without it where would I be?

Long story short, my eyes have been opened. Thank you for reading this novel :)

All the best and God bless,
-Stu

Thanks for connecting. I can attest to what you have written about the "The Paycheck Paradigm". I believe it is now a path to debt for the masses and a one and a half trillion dollar payday for those at the top. It would be a better world if education and medicine were not cultivated into the money making machines they have become instead of serving and advancing all of mankind.

At least you are using them and creating things. There is so much value in the creative process. And believing that we have something worth sharing makes all of the difference. Be brilliant!

I worked over 40+ years (now I've aged myself) for someone else making money from sales to driving a 52 passenger school bus. I was raising 3 children almost single handedly and it was back breaking at times literally, I'm now fused from my first cervix in my neck to my lower lumbar. I had to go on SSD which is limited income and not enough to accommodate my lifestyle, so I opened an eBay store 4 years ago October, I'm a Top Rated Seller for the better part of that and enjoy it very much, but if I could incorporate that with WA I'd be as happy a pig in you know what. That's when I searched eBay as a niche being a new comer to this program and saw your video I just wanted to thank you for posting it and now I'm going to try and do what I've been thinking about. So if I have questions please don't get annoyed since I'm not the best on computers.
Thanks! Kimberly

Hello Stu ... thank you for the follow. What are you ... 20 something? Your wisdom is well beyond your age. It's just a number, right? I started to read the post you mentioned in the first paragraph above, and realized I'll need to set aside some time to do that later.

Long winded ... just a little :-), but that is obviously who you are. I WILL be back to read it because it is encouraging to me since I just took the leap to commit my niche site (golf) to Amazon. My product specific affiliations just were not converting, and in December when my traffic took a significant hit (the Amazon Effect) I decided I'd rather switch than fight.

Any way your back ground and skills are going to serve you well here. I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Stu, it is really nice to read your profile. I too, also come into realization that the "Paycheck Paradigm" is one of the most ridiculous thing I've ever experienced in my life.

My family looked a bit down to me when I changed job from time to time, simply because it is not in accordance with that 'society's rule'. After changing jobs several time, I just realized that I am simply not suited to work for someone else.

I ditched my several years of good careers and change the direction of my job, from finance to digital marketing company, from a high level position to low level position, in order to have more time and flexibility doing my online business. A 'dumb' move for society, but not for me.

Joining WA is one of my biggest turning point, and I realized that no matter how much the world against my path, I will regret it if I don't live what I want to be.

Wish you success here and thank you for connecting :)

Cheers,
Ferdinand

StubearBlack Premium
Hey Ferdinand!

You're right, people look at you funny when you talk about working for yourself nowadays. They're so used to driving to work that the concept of making money on their own terms seems very foreign. I'm so glad to have stumbled upon WA as well. Looking back, it really was a turning point as you said!

Not everyone is stuck in that paradigm, but the majority are and they frequently reduce finding a job down to simply sending out their resume and hoping for the best. I don't want to be that person anymore, and I know you sure as heck don't. So let's keep on grinding, even when we feel like throwing in the towel..

That said, let me know if you need a hand.. and I hope to talk with you again soon..

Blessings and well wishes,

Hey Sheila! Thanks for stopping by.. That's a great question actually.

Here's the TL;DR: I love to paint, but it's on the back burner right now. I want to get back into it soon though :)

Long winded me version:

I told myself a few months ago that I would focus on one or two things and become successful at those before I moved on to other endeavors. I have this tendency to want to do 80 things at once, but the problem is nothing ever gets done. Lol. I believe in myself and always felt that I could succeed, and do! But it becomes the issue of "spreading myself too thin." You know the saying: Jack of all trades, master of none sort of deal. As I've gotten older I have come to the conclusion that if I put my focus into something and become great at it, then I can fully realize my potential by applying that same principle to everything else. So right now my website is top priority. I appreciate your comment!

Hi Stuart, it’s a pleasure to meet me, lol.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Let me know if I can help you.

It's been up and down to be honest.. I can definitely see that this program is the best in the business. No gimmicks and I appreciate that immensely. I have ranked on the first page as #2 for one of my low hanging fruit, but other than that no huge success to speak of. I'm still trying to make that first sale. How about you?

Interesting reading, that's for sure. Seems you have a talent for writing as well. A talent which will serve you well in this business. I am sure you have heard the saying:" Find something you love to do and figure out how to get someone to pay you for it. "? That is what affiliate marketing is all about. I am looking forward to see you progress.

Hey thanks pbar. Right now I cannot get motivated and it's really getting to me. I'm a little discouraged and trying to get back on track
Reply
pbar47 Premium
I know that feeling well. Sometimes I just sit in front of my computer all day, staring at the ceiling or watching television. Always be aware, and when inspiration does strike, don't put it off. Go wherever it takes you. Sometimes when I have a hard time motivating myself, I remember why I am doing this in the first place.
1) Freedom
2) Help to make my mother's retirement years as comfortable as possible.
That gets me going and re-enforces my determination to succeed.
Hope inspiration strikes you soon !!!

Hi Stuart, thanks for the follow and the blog comment. I feel that we are similar in our love of Graphic design but at either ends of the timeline. You having completed your degree and me who has worked as an advertising art director and graphic design for 30+ years. With your passion of both design and music you may well enjoy a career in advertising but as many creatives have said "too work in advertising is to sell one's soul."
Had a quick look at you site, some great content there. Here at WA I'm sure that you will find a niche that will work for you as a business and to satisfy your creative interests.
All the best, I am interested to see what you do next.
Cheers

Any tips on landing a Graphic Design job? thanks for your thoughtful comment too!
-Stu
Reply
GregHall1961 Premium
Hi Stu,
Employers want experienced people, preferably a couple of years. Problem is getting that start. So it's about getting that foot in the door.
Possibly not in the most glamourous outfit say a print shop, printing company, local paper or magazine or even a packaging company with their own studio. many corporates (especially retailers) have their own graphic departments.

It may not pay well and it probably won't be the most exhilarating work but you are learning about deadlines, budgets, following a brief and work in a team. These are all important facets to being a great designer.

Or you might want to look at the better agencies in your city and offer your services free for a period of 3 to 6 months. An intern type arrangement. You'll learn and if you click and are great to work with you may well land a job that way. I do have to say though it is harder to do that these days. Well here in New Zealand it is.

You always want to be upskilling. WA is perfect. It's knowledge that employers want. How to drive traffic to websites as well as good design are great assets to a company and it's a great way to separate yourself form others designers competing for the same job.

Anything to do with the internet has got to be good. The changes I've seen in my working career is mind boggling and it is only going to be more in the years to come. More so I imagine.

Animation, coding, how design works within internet marketing with a bent to mobile devices (specifically apps) are all trends that I have seen develop significantly over the last couple of years. Graphic design can be applied to so many applications these days.

Always look for freelance type work with friends and family. This is a great way to get published work and bolster your portfolio. Go on fiverr, odesk and elance and list your skills and look for some work that way.

Mate I could go on forever with advice but at the end of the day if you really want it, it will happen one way or another. You just have to make it happen. Good luck and let me know how you get on.
Cheers
Greg

Thank you Greg, haven't had a chance to respond. Been very busy. I will take your advice into consideration and try to apply it. Oh and regarding the not so . I had an interview yesterday with Strawbridge Studios (portrait company) which is inline with exactly what you were talking about in the first paragraph. I think he's going to hire me so hopefully that will help me in the right direction and enable me to learn about a lot of different things as I try to get that real design job.

Hello Stuart!

I am very excited for you as your profile makes clear that you are mentally in a place that is going to serve you well as you dig into the knowledge and resources here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I hope you are able to make time to immerse yourself in the lessons and that you give yourself the gift of not skipping anything and doing the related tasks. I have accomplished so much by doing just that and while I still have a ways to go, I'm just in Course 3 Lesson 8, I know that great things are possible here as I have seem so many others growing and succeeding.

So I look forward to what you are going to creatively bubble to the surface.

That's awesome. I was actually working on my site .. I'm getting burnt out lol. It's 3:21 am here. I have a little diff work schedule this week of 2-10pm. Now I can't go to bed haha. I decided to just leave it a lone til tmw. I can't focus. Here is what i have so far. I have an about me section done and currently am working on the "home studio basics" tab. I'm wondering if I should break up the information by having a drop down menu? I think it's pretty organized but let me know. I do want some drop down menus for some of the other tabs. Gah my heads been buzzing with ideas all day at work. All I wantd to do was get home so I could do WA things lol! :) I can't wait to get started on lesson 2.

Hey there, Stuart!

Oh my goodness, look at how much thought you have put into your site with this first blush and lesson two hoviering and waiting to be done. I like the idea of having a drop down menu, especially if you are going to have additions to each of the sections.

You have made a good start with breaking up the dialogue too. Never hurts as you get to those parts of the lessons to start inserting photos along with the links you are creating. There is even a way to link from the photo, though I have forgotten that piece of instruction in my juncture. I do agree it is 'pretty organized' right now. Any and all posts and pages will be modified as you go.

Awsome beginning. I so get wanting to be done at some other responsibility so you can get back into your WA world and doing WA things. ;-)

It sure does seem to me you will have a winner here. I look forward to what else will be created as you move forward.

Yes, indeed...I am about to do the same as I was up until 1230 am last night and am certainly bushed tonight. Just wanted to check in and make sure I was responding where needed.

You sound allot like me when I first started,,,,I just couldn't seem to get enough and seeing my website develop so quickly was juice to keep going at it. I did however, hit a bump in the road through my enthusiasm that I learned from but held back my progress. Check out my post about it. There are some good links and reminders in it that could be supportive of you as you enthusiastically move ahead.

Here it is:
