When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I wrote:
"Feeling unfulfilled working in the healthcare setting as a dietitian, I decided to look into what the online world could offer. I am a service-oriented person, so the possibilities out there are exciting. Joined WA to learn how to navigate this promising environment."

I was new and didn't want to say too much. I had already been involved with another community. I learned a lot there, but wanted to learn more about how to do things myself vs. where I could go to pay to get something done. Because of this, I was now cautious.

I feel blessed.

Being here, I am learning all the things I need to step into a life where I can exist comfortably, share my passions, and help others along the way.

Truly, it is an understatement when I say that I feel "fortunate" to be here. Since my first child was born in the mid-90s, I have dedicated my life to my children. I have been mostly a stay-at-home and homeschooling parent, a route that did not meet with whole-scale approval. But, I did have per diem work which was a blessing. I pretty much got to pick my own hours, got paid, and was in an environment where I had the potential to help people.

But, to be quite honest, even though my whole career has found me in health care facilities (i.e. hospitals and outpatient facilities), I never really felt like I actually helped anyone improve their health. Unfortunately, the way our health care is set up, pills and surgery are the route most often taken. Lifestyle changes just aren't talked about regularly or, if they are, they are talked about as an aside or adjunct to the pharmaceutical route. Hmm, better stop now as my head is steaming. =(

Now, a little free-er from being hands-on with my children and deciding not to work as I did before, I am entering an exciting new chapter in my life by going online with my own platforms.

As each day passes and I continue to learn, I feel like I have won something better than any lottery could ever give me. WA empowers me and gives me the skills to improve my tomorrow on my own terms. Better than that, the community here has made me feel a comfort and ease that I never got while "on the job" before.

My blogs are still fleshing out. I don't know if they ever will be really "done". That's because there are so many interesting and creative tweaks that I keep learning about and want to try. But, I am very much okay with that. =)

It is all so much fun, rewarding...there is just never a dull day at the "office".

So happy to be here. =D

Money Goals
For me, the possibility to earn any amount of $ from an online business is exciting to me. If I could earn enough to support myself and family completely, that would be a dream come true. Of course, if there is more (i.e. to fund a vacation...sigh...), that would be icing on the cake. As for time investment, I would be willing to give as much time as possible.
Money I would be happy earning

I can totally relate! However, you may want to make some SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely). There's a reason for this.

It's proven that what you focus on grows. Like when you see a shiny car you like. You saw none before but now that you're focused on them, you see them everywhere. (Honestly, they were always there; you just didn't notice. Your "reticular activator" wasn't focused on it.) So, your mind is somewhat confused by "as much time as possible".

For some reason, your brain (and self-esteem) tends to like "checklists". By making your goals measurable, they can be "checked off". This will motivate you from the inside out. Then, as you achieve, the sense of accomplishment will fulfill the needs of your self-esteem, pushing you forward to the next step.

Best wishes...

Just know that if you ever need any help that you have myself and the whole community here to help you 24-7 :)

Well said...I share the same view with you. At the beginning, I want to see it as supplemental income.

Really awesome goals Susan, love them! I look forward to helping you achieve these and if you ever need hand, simply ask for some help. There is no reason to ever be stuck here within the community on your journey to success. :)

Hello, Crystal,

Thank you! Your reply was just what I needed.

It's interesting, but I inherently do this in some areas of my life, but not so much with financial goals. Others can have big dreams/goals and that seems completely normal to me, but I feel less comfortable doing the same (old-fashioned training of "not asking for too much," I guess).

Thank you again for your insightful reply. I know where I have some work to do. =)

Thank you Vitaliy! You have actually helped me quite a bit already. I have read so much on your own website (that brought me to WA) that I feel like I already have a good foundation. I feel so fortunate!

Hey Susan, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Susan, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Susan. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!
