About Thelungdoc
Joined October 2018
I thought being a member of Wealthy Affiliate would be right up my alley. I am nearing retirement and would like to establish another source of income.

Ideally, I would also like to do something that helps others in some way.

I have been involved with affiliate marketing for years but have never really done well. There just seemed to be missing pieces - traffic was a real problem.

So I did some research - what any good doctor would do.

There are a lot of sites on the internet promising to make you into an affiliate marketer and I have been involved in a few - but none of them equal what is available here.

I have now been with WA for several months and am gradually building out my web page. It is certainly a "work in progress" but I am learning a lot as time goes on. I particularly enjoy all the people here at WA who are of the same mindset, and the helpful, non-judgemental atmosphere here.

This helpful atmosphere helps everybody do better and achieve their goals - whatever that might be. Let's do this together!

You’ve landed in the right place. Similar experiences with on line attempts...failed but failed forward. I’ve been a member here less than a week and the community is remarkable. Great support and the tools are fantastic. Only wish I’d landed here long before now but the future looks great.
All the best.

Thanks for following me, David!

I hope I can bring value in some form or other to everyone I meet. Even if its just to have them smile or laugh.

I hope you enjoy watching me as I go from where I am today to wherever the hell I am tomorrow. ;-)

I've been here less than a week and cannot wait to get back online and get to work and interact with the community.

Once again, thanks!

Goodluck Doc! Anxiously awaiting your website. How do you feel about this trend more and more people are embracing in medicine; functional medicine, Gerson therapy,;diet and supplements vs pharmaceuticals, treating the root of the disease as opposed to just treating the symptoms? It tickles me when these hollywood doctor's bash the drug companies for making so much money then turn around and charge 50 to 100 dollars a bottle for their awesome formulas as if that is affordable for the average Joe that they so adamantly claim to want to help. Right. It took modern medicine 20 years to embrace this. I hope it doesn't take another 20 years for medicare to help our country's lowly citizens, like myself, pay for these magnificent concoctions.

Hi Doc, and I mean that with all due respect as a retiree myself of 28 years in ICU and ER. I have many of my family in medicine that ask why I smile so much, and I reply; smiling is easier, makes others comfortable, and it's contagious. If you don't like what you are doing, change it right now! Oh yeah, have fun doing it!

You certainly correct in saying Wa show possibility for most people who join here.
The lessons are great but can only be beneficial when someone takes actions and goes forward.
Wishing you well along your journey online. Keep believing in yourself, always go forward and enjoy all you do.

ok guy,got a question.I am deaf(due to cancer treatment)therefor I can not hear the vedios in the training.Allthough they were very informant and thourough,is there someone who can look over my sight and give me feedback on anything I might have missed or can improve?

Hi Marty -

Sorry to hear about the side-effects from cancer therapy.

Yes - part of this program is that you will be able to show your site to the community and get (hopefully) helpful advice and constructive criticism. This happens on Level 2 called "Building your own traffic producing website." You will, in turn, be able to do the same for other websites from other marketers.

I might point out that a niche for hearing impaired individuals might be a good one.

Hope this helps!
Dave.

Hey David...I saw a comment you left on Donnie's profile saying you were in TN, so I had to say Howdy, Neighbor! My family and I just moved here in January, and I couldn't be happier here. What a beautiful state! And, at least where I'm located, the people are so very friendly. Kind of like here on WA! haha Hope you are enjoying your WA journey so far. Best wishes! ~Cheri

Hello David,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! You have made a terrific decision! I hope you are able to see the value of becoming a paid member very soon.

There are a lot of features that will make more sense to you as you proceed through the training material but I can tell you this, the hosting servers here are incredible! They were created by affiliates for affiliates and specifically for Wordpress users. You don't want to be anywhere else. This is your home now! LOL!

Feel free to ask me any questions. I'm relatively new myself but I'll do my best to answer your questions. I was already quite experienced when I joined but it was the best decision of my life! I've only been a member for 3 weeks and I'm already making commissions, but I entered into this with an already built website.

Happy learning! Nothing is more exciting than seeing the progress you've made over the course of even a few weeks. Everyone here is super friendly and ready to answer a whole range of questions you may have. You're going to love it here! So worth it!

Thank you so much for your message. One thing I am very impressed with so far is the depth and breadth of information available here. You can find the answer to any question.

There seems to be a real community feeling here - like everybody is here to help you achieve greater goals.

It is very exciting to be starting off on a new adventure of learning and working on a new income stream.

And truly, thanks for your encouragement!

Thanks, and best of luck back!

This business takes a lot of work, but I can't think of any that don't! Certainly, a medical office is overwhelming with work, regulations, oversight, etc. that this looks easy!

Good luck to you Bryon,

Dave.

Welcome David to one of the greatest online platforms available!

I feel so lucky to have found such a great place to learn, be creative, and build my business.

The best thing about WA and the community is that you have all the resources that you need. It is just about applying everything you learn, being patient, and achieving your short term goals.

I encourage you to start the training right away. As you go through the training you can watch the videos, read the video summaries and be sure to apply every single step in the video without skipping steps.

It is amazing how much you learn and how quickly you can become a great resource for others.

If you ever have any questions or need assistance don't hesitate to reach out.

Hi, David.

Welcome to WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hello there!!! Welcome to WA Premium. You won't regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

Hello Lungdoc... So, you're a pulmonologist...?? Looks like you're already kicking butt, and taking names here!! Congrats!!
Reply

Yep - a pulmonologist. Trying to get a new interest going. I ended up learning some programming when one of my children went into computer science - and I love it! I then branched out to Web development so imagine my delight on finding a whole huge site on business development using information technology!

Thanks again for the encouragement.
