About SusieSoapbox
Joined February 2018
Let's see where to begin, well for starters my name is Susannah; nickname Susie Q for short. I have to say I am so glad I came across this website. Through the years I've been looking for ways to explore a personal website that supports not just that but a voice and a way to empower and support others. I am a high energy people person with a creative need for innovation who is constantly looking for change and ways to solve problems outside of the box. Oh yeah and I have an open mind and love to explore other people's mind.

I eat and breathe inspiration and well I hope to become a success on this new and exciting journey. That's all for now but i'm sure I will write more as I continue :)
SusieSoapbox's Goals 3
Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
As cliche as this sounds, I never really had a number set in my mind, Its more of I'd say enough to be able to provide a home, bills, food etc and of course extra so I don't feel confined to settle in a job that I am not passionate about let alone working a set amount of hours. I'm sure i will modify this answer as i keep going but wanted to participate as soon as i started this training.
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
Eh a million bucks then I can give back to all the people who have helped me throughout my life especially all my friends and family.
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
As long as it takes. I believe in hard work and constant evolving. I find in the past I put all my time and energy into hard work but in these wrong professions thinking I didn't have any other realistic options.

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

Wow Susie, I love your goals! A lot of people come in here with unrealistic expectations, probably because just about every other program promises quick riches.

WA is very clear that to reach success will take time, and there are lots of members here who can prove that's the case. Some members here don't make anything for a year; some (though a much lower percentage) quit their 9 to 5 jobs by the year mark.

Success online is not guaranteed with any program you follow. Most programs are meant to make the owners, not you, successful. On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate is designed to make YOU successful. You are provided with every tool necessary and all the support you could possibly need to build a lucrative online business, but success is solely up to you. If you get bogged down, discouraged because you aren't seeing any profits after several months, etc., and because of that don't try very hard or simply quit, you will be just like 90%+ of aspiring internet entrepreneurs. The ones who succeed know and appreciate the grind (you understand this), and are willing to work their tails off for however long it takes in order to see success.

I started WA back in May 2016. I jumped around a lot, trying out different niches without putting in more than a few months of work in for each. Of course, none of these early ventures became a success, although I did make 50 cents here or a dollar there. Then I finally settled down and did my best to focus on ONE website (a goal which I didn't always faithfully follow), and the results started to look much better. I'd probably be full-time online by now, but due to circumstances beyond my control, was unable to spend the better part of 2017 working on my website. Even though my schedule is chock full this year, I am doing my utmost to not let that happen again. :) As for income, (the question everyone's after, for some reason ;)), it's starting to come together...I'll just say my yearly membership is very easily covered, and the numbers are rising at a steady clip.

Sorry for such a long response! Guess I got a little carried away haha.

Anyway, as always, if you ever need a hand with anything please please please reach out to me or the community here.

Wishing you success!

I appreciate your response and hey I get carried away too but I view it as a good sign. I also really dig how this works and also how realistic it is about how much you will make, and that it does take time and how it is up to you in how you choose to succeed.

I have been in between jobs now for a little over a year. In 2016 I moved back out West ( my parents are from SLC Utah and they surprisingly decided to move back ). I grew up in the Northern VA/DC Metro area so its been quite the adjustment in a good way. I have a cute little 10 year old and I want him to have what I had growing up with a huge close family connection ( I have like a billion cousins and aunts and uncles out here lol :)

So its been a journey, and I finally feel alive again with optimism. I came out here to think and do something out of the box. When it comes to figuring out a set niche, I'm like you in the sense that there are so many! I agree with you about focusing on one niche website to get going and started. I think that is my goal is to figure that out.

I definitely want to invest in the premium stuff too once I can figure out a good day job for the time being whooooo!!

Hey Susannah,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! It's great to have you here, and I can guarantee that you'll find this community always willing to help you succeed.

I wanted to mention a couple of things that'll help you get started here. The first thing you'll want to do is to fill out your profile. This step should only take a couple of minutes. Here's a video that walks you through the simple process: Filling out your profile is very important in this community, as it will give you more trust. People will be more willing to help you out knowing that they're helping a REAL person. ;)
It also shows that you're serious about learning to succeed here.

After that's done, swing on over to the "Get Started Here" training (the big green button on the left). This course will show you exactly what you'll be learning here in an easy to understand way. It'll also show you how to get your own site up and running in no time. Here's a link to the course: If you ever get stuck or need any help, PLEASE contact me and I will be more than willing to help you out. I want to see you succeed Susannah, so I will do anything I can to help out.

I just wanted to add that you don't ever have to upgrade to the Premium membership here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Anyway, like I said before, it's GREAT to have you here. I can't wait to see your progress, so what are you waiting for? Lol, but really, the best thing you can do right now towards becoming successful here is to fill out your profile, and get started with the training.

Hey there! I've started the course 1 and I am excited to keep going. I do agree it takes hard work to be successful in anything and this is the first site that I have found that represents that. Thank you.

Awesome, keep it up! Sounds like you understand the hard work involved. A lot of people don't for some reason. You can guess who becomes successful :)

If you ever need any help or guidance as you work through the course, just give me a shout or ask the community.

Good luck!
