About Thebbqguy
Joined January 2015
My name is Brian. I've lived in Missouri, Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee and currently reside in Michigan.

I have been publishing various blogs and websites online since 1998. To this point my blogs and websites have been tied into various interests and hobbies that I am pursuing including competing in professional barbecue competitions, vermicomposting, writing works of fiction, and serious fishing pursuits.

It snowed 18 inches this week. It's the perfect time of year to work on my WA business and help others get their WA business started. WA can help improve my ability to operate my current websites and make them even better.

My goals with Wealthy Affiliate are to teach others how to make money online and spend more time fishing, or course!

Money Goals
1. I'd be happy to earn $200 a month consistently month-after-month.
2. Earning $10,000 a month would make me ecstatic.
3. I'd be happy to spend 8 - 10 hours per week to earn goal #1 and if I accomplish that goal and "prove the concept" I'd be willing to spend 50 or 60 hours per week to earn goal #2.

Thebbguy, I think you have a typo in there, maybe you meant 2000 a month, I don't know. Anyways, Hope you make all your goals and best of luck.

Reynaldo, $2,000 a month would be great, but I'd be happy with $200 a month as a proof-of-concept. I have learned that $200 a month is the threshold for people to be "convinced" that something will or will not work for them. If they can't earn $200 a month with reasonable effort fairly early on, they will move on to something else (me included). I have been earning money online in a very low key manner with Amazon and Adsense since 2001, but I have not yet cracked the $200 a month with consistency barrier. I have made $400 and I have made $4, but it has been inconsistent. For me, I have to drive massive traffic to earn $100 a month from my simple blog. For the average person they probably aren't going to drive "massive" traffic consistently. The fact that I have had a blog since 2001 makes me above average.

So awesome Brian, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Definitely very reasonable & achievable goals for sure especially from the training I've seen available here on WA. I just joined yesterday but am blown away by the amount of training offered. I'd say if we STAY FOCUSED, WORK HARD, DO WHAT WE ARE TOLD, WE CANNOT FAIL! Wishing you Success my friend. YOU CAN DO IT! :-)

Brian the bbqguy, Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.
Follow Kyle's videos and instructions and if you get stuck....well.......that is what the community is for! Just ask and you will receive everyone’s help each other out because we all care!

Hi Vince,

I found your website quite by accident. I have had online businesses for many years, but I haven't been able to earn money consistently month in and month out. Primarily I have earned money from AdSense via blogs and Amazon via links in my blogs.

Time and consistency seems to be the key, but I need to figure out how to advance to steps beyond AdSense. It's fine for starters, but I need to find another strategy too.

I plan to promote Wealthy Affiliate, but need understand more and learn more about how it works.

Thanks for the welcome!

Brian

It's simple if you want to promote WA. It's all in the Bootcamp section.
