About TonyRidgeway
Joined May 2013
Hello to all, I'm Tony. I've been trying this lovely internet marketing "thing" for about 7 years now. I have spent entirely too much time learning and not nearly enough time earning so to speak. I am here to try to regain focus myself, sort out some of the information overload that I've managed to obtain, and finally start hopefully making some money online.

I also hope to be able to share some of the knowledge that I've obtained through the years to help some fellow marketers out in some way or another. With that said, I wish you the best of luck.

Money Goals
First I have to say that success is certainly not only about the monetary value as I have yet to make a dime in the few weeks I’ve been here, but felt successful last night after seeing that I received 50 visitors to my site! The key for my earnings is that I want to create a truly passive income. Meaning that I am striving to break the $ / hour mentality that I have had writing content for others in the past. Now, on to the questions…

#1 I would be happy earning $3000 a month or $100 a day. This would allow me to fully replace my full time income as a nurse and go to part time nursing with full time internet marketing. I have been in pursuit of this goal for several years now.

#2 I would be ecstatic earning $10,000 / month. This would allow me to have an extremely comfortable lifestyle in my area.

#3 I am currently investing about 4 hours / day to my internet marketing goals, and I’m doing this 7 days a week. I hope to reach my first goal within the next 6 months to a year so that I can begin to invest 8-10 hours per day. I am working roughly 60-80 hours a week right now, so this is all that I am able to do currently, but I am striving to change these circumstances.

I am looking more for the freedom that being your own boss provides more than the financial aspects honestly. I have spent too many years in management having to do the books for my locations and seeing business owners making upwards of 20 times the earnings of all of the employees, myself included, combined. That’s what lead me to this career path, and eventually here to WA.

Hey Tony and welcome to the group. I am fairly new here myself so I don’t have all the answers, in fact sometimes I think I know just enough to be dangerous. But in the short time I’ve been here I have learned a lot and I realize there is a lot more for me to learn. I doubt the learning will ever end because the internet is constantly evolving.

So, here’s what I know for sure…

1. There is a lot of information for you to go through.
2. It is really easy to get overwhelmed, if that happens step back and take a break
3. Follow the lessons one at a time, and don’t skip around if you can avoid it
4. If you get stumped on something, ask. Someone here knows the answer
5. Have fun and hang on!

I’ve been in other groups before, but I’ve never seen anything like Wealthy Affiliate. The other members (not just the owners) really want you and I to succeed so everyone tries to help.

Wishing the best success for you

Hey Kali, thanks for the warm welcome. I look forward to learning alongside everyone, and hopefully providing a little bit of education myself.

Thanks again and good luck,

Good day and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I've been waiting for you to get here!

My name is Jennifer - also known as PotPieGirl here online.

I'm very excited for you as you begin your internet marketing journey to success!

There may be times that you will feel overwhelmed and/or confused. Rest assured, that is totally natural. You are taking charge of your future and that's a BIG deal - and something you should be very proud of.

Please be patient with yourself as you work through the training - and ask for help when you need it.

If you need any help, try these options:

1. Live Chat - On the right side of your main dashboard here in WA, there is an on-going stream of live chat discussions. Have a question? Just ask in the chat box.

And hey, don't be shy - say hello!

2. The Forum. WA has a GREAT forum! There is a wealth of info in the tons of existing posts - or you can start a new thread to ask your question.

3. Stop by my personal space here on WA and leave a message:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/potpiegirl

Don't forget to click the green button to "Follow Me" - that way we can keep up!

Also, down the LEFT side of your dashboard are 3 very important areas that you should make a point to read as soon as you join.

It's under 'Recommended Training' and the titles are:

-Warm Welcome
-Your First 10 Days
-Learn How WA Works

These will all be super helpful as you learn to navigate everything WA has to offer you.

As someone who started all this knowing NOTHING, I can tell you first-hand from 5+ years of experience that it is a jungle out "there" (outside the walls of Wealthy Affiliate).

Please know that when you are here INSIDE this exclusive community, that you are safe and have all you need to grow your online business to whatever level YOU choose.

I've been here in WA since July 2008 - joining Wealthy Affiliate was the BEST decision I've made. I feel sure you will realize the same as you learn and work to make YOUR dreams come true.

I wish you all the best and remember -

It's not how fast you get there - it's how long you stay.

To YOUR Success!

Jennifer
