About Theduke
Joined August 2013
Hi, this is Theduke. It's my WA name.

I’m an IT Consultant who finished school and entered the work force in the middle of what many people call the worst economic slowdown since the Great Recession. It was very difficult to find work but I was lucky.

I landed a job in my area of study in the warm South, so that was another plus.

The reason I joined WA is I want to be able to chart out my own career path. I love my job and work very hard now, but somehow I feel I'm facing a very uncertain future. I've seen many highly-skilled people who have made great contributions to the success of the company being shown the door.

I don't want to face the same fate so here I am.

My goal? I want to be a full-time Affiliate Marketer in 5 years. I will save as much as I can, learn Internet Marketing and take action on it as much as I can and in 5 years I'll make the switch.

My motivation? Control of my own career.

That's my little profile.

Look forward to learn and share!

Cheers!

Well done for signing up. Really get stuck into the classes and the forums. Feel free to send me a message if I can help. Most important, it's easy to spend ages watch the videos and message boards. But take consistent action. Do at least one key things every day. Complete a learning topic, write a blog post etc

I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Hey there and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. It is great to have you here and I definitely look forward to working with you. My suggestion to you is to take action on what you learn as a good deal of the actual learning will take place during the action? phase.

Getting started is easy here at WA, we have a step-by-step course dedicated to walking you through getting up and running here:

If you have any questions, give me a shout. :)

Thanks Kyle! Not sure if I should get all the way to the top with my beginner questions yet, but thanks for paving the way! I'll go through the training and will no doubt have lots of questions. BTW I just noticed I joined over a year ago but only went premium yesterday. A year of time wasted!?

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Today is your starting point of your journey to expertise and success within the online world!

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Huy! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

PS. Look forward, not behind you. What you do in the year ahead is what will impact your year ahead!

Hey there! I wanted to start you off with a note that could significantly impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career).


I've put together a video to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


This video will take less than 8 minutes to watch and should COMPLETELY change the experience you have here at Wealthy Affiliate. Give the video a chance and you'll know within 8 minutes what could take hours or days to pickup exploring the members' area on your own.


I've also typed up a few pieces of advice that I think will help you get the most of your time here:


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Forum" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account 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 affiliate marketing and you see value in the Wealthy Affiliate membership within the first seven days, 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 (you'll only pay $19 for your first month as opposed to $47 if you upgrade within the first seven days). I keep my membership active and recurring every month so that I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
