About SylviaB
Joined October 2013
Hi - I'm Sylvia from Michigan. I am retired with no nest egg. I am hoping I am not too old to learn and build a sizable savings. I've been searching for a while - checking out a lot of offers. Most of them only offer pocket money - but I am looking for more. WA has popped up many times while checking out other possibilities. I am hoping this is the right choice to focus on. I am ready and willing (just not sure about the able) to do the work.

Money Goals
I am retired and am willing to put in a minimum of 4 hours a day to make this happen and most days even more. My birthday is in 4 months and it would be a great birthday if I could be earning even $100 per week by then. My goal would be to eventually earn $2000 a month and would be ecstatic if I could earn $5000 a month. At my age I just hope I am able to learn and earn!
Money I would be happy earning
Money I would be ecstatic earning

Being a silver head myself, I can tell you, it is easier to learn at our age than ever before. We don't have hormones raging and we tend to eat less than other folks. And, if I can do this, I assure you, you can as well! I will follow you and see you succeed, if that's okay.

Sure Zazu-and I will follow you as well. Knowing you are watching will keep me motivated. Thanks for the encouraging words.

Hi Scott - Thanks for checking in. I have a niche but am wondering if you get more training in boot camp. Is it better to go with a niche or boot camp or maybe both. Is there any advandtage of taking one over the other? I think I should start with just one to get the hang of things. What do you think. Also I am just beginning so my question will probably be answered in the course very soon. Thanks Again

I would suggest that you go with a passion or hobby of yours that way you enjoy what you are doing and it don't seem like work. I have been doing the bootcamp myself and I have absolutely been loving it so far. It seems like it gets better with every phase they put out. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Both training programs are setup about the same and no 1 program offers more training than the other 1. I would only start out with 1 website right now. I was the same way trying to have a few going at a time. It won't work get one and stick with it. Start out with one and let me know if you have anymore questions and I will help you out.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Sylvia!

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:

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

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.
