Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Winn! :)

Hi Winn... I just read your profile and laughed and laughed... mainly because I've done all that stuff too!!! Right down to the two thousand dollars I spent learning that I actually have zero interest in renovating houses for a living! Then there was the fifteen hundred bucks I paid for a video course on writing ebooks for a living (information I've since realised I could have researched on the Net for nothing) and the six thousand dollars my supposed mentor cost me when I foolishly left my Forex trading account active and he started experimenting with my money. We ARE silly sometimes aren't we? :-) I don't regret any of it though as I learned something valuable each time. Hopefully it will all come together to create the perfect vehicle moving forward. I very much look forward to sharing this journey with you, and getting to know you a bit better. Best regards Gayle PS Unlike you I am NOT addicted to working out. Wish I was... maybe my pants would still fit me.

Hi, Gayle! Seems like we have had similar and parallel paths. I feel like we are already friends sharing about our ridiculous yet very similar experiences.

Yes, some of those ventures seemed silly : )!! I think deep down we want to express our best work in the best medium. And sometimes those medium/systems were not the best or the best fit for us.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. The key is to bring it all together (our experiences, lessons learned, strategies, etc). in order to create sustainable success and significance.

I look forward to hearing more about your progress and getting to know you better!

Hi Winn. It seems that you've been knocked back on a number of occasions but you still keep brushing yourself down and trying again. Good on you! I have also tried a number of 'Get Rich Quick' schemes (maybe I'll add my experiences to my profile) and have concluded that they don't actually exist. WA seems different in that there are no false promises, and although you need to put the effort in, there is a constant stream of help and support. Good luck with your ventures. With all your efforts you are destined to succeed :)

Hey Jonathan, thank you for stopping by to say hello. It does take a lot of hard work and I want to work smarter each and every day to determine the best strategies to execute.

I appreciate your encouragement. Hope to hear more about your progress and success. Cute baby picture by the way :).

Hi Winn, really enjoyed reading your profile blog. We have a similar story, but have not tried as many different programs as you have. We feel that here at WA we have a real winner in every way. We are going kind of slow, but we are determined to follow though with everything we are asked to do in every step. It's very exciting to be a part of this community, and meet great people like yourself. Looking forward to seeing your success, and to meeting you in Vegas.

Hi Veanna, thank you for the sweet message. I agree with you. Our actions will determine our success. Let's work smart and take the right steps to building an online business.

I usually review the training 2-3 times and also search for the more advanced training too.

I look forward to following you. Cheers!

That's awesome Dirk. I love articles with long content (greater than 2,000). It makes you feel the person poured their heart into writing it.
Apparently other authority bloggers believe long content is valuable too.

You may have read this already, but there is some data that supports long content. http://neilpatel.com/2015/11/26/why-you-need-to-create-evergreen-long-form-content-and-how-to-produce-it/

Good for you to complete the training. I like to go through all training at least 2-3 times. Also I have been reviewing the more advanced training.

I look forward to hearing more about your progress. Keep me updated : )

Welcome to WA, you have found a good place. Life is certainly an adventure. There have been a lot more programs that I did look into but fortunately did not buy :).

2016 will be a great day! Please keep me updated with your progress. I hope you experience the success that you are looking for.

Hi Winn, thanks for following me.
You may have had some poor experiences but somewhere along the way you gained one of the key skills for building your online business, that is the ability to write.
WA is not a get rich quick scheme, it's more a training centre that will give you the ability to build a business. Stick at it and you will succeed. I wish you all the best for success.

I too have tried and paid for various online ventures that have sadly not had the support I have experienced here at WA. The one thing I can say from all the time and money I have invested is that I have learned a lot about working online. Ive done website building, marketing, mlm, nerworking etc. Im sure with your experiences you have learned a lot too. What a great foundation for the opportunities with have now. I wish you every success in using your skills and knowledge in growing your business with WA. Julie.

Winn, I just read some comments you made about Ravel's site. I was impressed by your thoroughness as I do the same when giving feedback. What's the point if it isn't helpful. I also read your profile above. I fortunately didn't get scammed and I found WA pretty quickly. I will keep a look-out for your website when you put it up here. To do this I am now following you.
Reply
wm8 Premium
Hi Helen, thank you so much for the comment and the follow. I agree with you! It was a quick review of Ravel's site. I usually spend more time. I do have a site but don't post it on WA. I understand that some members don't list their sites for various reasons. I am more interested in organic traffic.

There are some WA members who have been so helpful and kind to me. I try to pay it forward and provide good comments/feedback.

I am in the site restructuring mode and niche research mode to make sure I position myself. Trying to better define my site architecture/pillar articles and learning effective copywriting.

Winn - you are in the right place at the right time. I like your odyssey; it won't have been for naught. That you keep going, believing in yourself, is inspirational. So what if it takes half a lifetime to be an overnight success? your trials will have added to what you become. I expect the best for you.

Hi Winn - I just noticed your comment on Michael's 'Site Feedback Sucks' blog. Would you be interested in exchanging some honest feedback? I know exactly what you mean - people tell you it's wonderful and all that and some of the comments are so appallingly written that it's a total waste of time anyway! So here's the deal - you give me some honest feedback on mine and I'll do the same for you?
You game? I have to tell you that I will pick holes in your written content particularly! I would dearly like someone to be totally honest with me...

Sorry to hear about your money loss. Also so sorry to hear about your sour experience with real estate. This happens to be something that I have some experience in.

I made $10,000 from a $4,000 investment... problem is it was payments over time. But I had some extra income for a while. If I had some more money I could have done it again. Over and Over.

But I don't think that $30K you spent was totally wasted... you learned something from your experience I'm sure.

Good luck with your adventure here and let me have that car!

Hey RL, thank you for the message. That's great that you have made some money in real estate. I think there are some great opportunities in real estate.

I always say that I can make more money so I can definitely make more. Yes I agree, I learned a lot from the process and now I can usually detect if something is a scam.

I love that car! To your success.

Hi Winn, yes the two websites keep me very busy! I started a third, but I am not happy with it, so it will be a test site probably! :) Premium membership opens up all kinds of avenues for you, and if you decide to go premium, you will get the discount for 7 days. I did not want to miss the discount, and I have never had one regret! Take care, best of luck! Linda
