About Uakoko
Joined April 2013
I live on a rock out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (Maui). I think working for a living really sucks, so my passion in life is teaching folks, especially minimum wage workers, to become financially free. Working a 9 to 5 really cuts into your freedom. And working to make someone else wealthy while they are mistreating you, as lots of greedy employers do, is hell on earth, IMHO. Now all I have to do is learn how to make money online so I can teach it to others! That's where WA comes in. That's why I'm here...It looks as if this will the best place online to learn what I need to know! So, hello to everybody...I'm happy to be a part of your group!

Hi, and good to have you here at WA. I'm still pretty new too, and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, but the training is good, and the people are so helpful, that I'm limping along. I'll never work for anyone again, not the workforce I grew up with, so I'm trying to make my own way with WA. Thanks for the follow, and I wish you much success here, so far I'm really enjoying it, and I'm sure you will too. Good luck.

Thank you for the welcome. I'm so glad that you have decided to never sell your precious time to anyone else for their measly pittance. You are way too valuable for that. I've been struggling online for eight miserable years, and I finally discovered (I'm a slow learner...a REALLY slow learner) that what Kyle says is true. ..Focus on one thing and become an expert in that one thing first. Old Chinese proverb: Man who chases two hares will catch neither. Truer words were never spoken! Lots of good luck to you...

Thank you, I love that proverb, it's exactly my problem most the time, trying to do too much, so everything is started, and nothing is finished. I'm finally weeding things out with my crafts, etc., and just trying to stick to what I really like. I'm a real slow learner too, at least as far as this internet stuff is concerned, but then I figure, it's all new, nothing much to build on as in most jobs, like learning a new language or something, but we'll get there. I keep telling myself, just take baby steps, and you'll get there, maybe not as fast as some, but you'll get there just the same. Well, it's a beautiful day, after a cold winter, so I'm going out in the sun, and just not thinking of anything else today. Have a good one.

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".

Hey there! I wanted to start you off with a quick 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):


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 internet and affiliate marketing 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.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


To claim your bonus, post on my WA wall after you've upgraded to a premium membership saying that you purchased within the first seven days, and leave me your email address. I'll send the bonus your way ASAP.


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


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
