About YvetteG
Joined October 2015
Most of my professional career has been working as a Sales Manager primarily in the internet, print and media industries. I got tired, burnt out, and lost my passion. I also went through a lot of personal turmoil, causing me to re-evaluate everything. I wanted to completely change the way I lived my life, and that started with initially reducing my workload, changing the type of work I did, and where I lived. My life changed dramatically, and it continues to do so as I learn more about what success means to me.

Most of the last year I've been travelling and living abroad, working here and there just to make ends meet whilst I tap into my real goal of being an entrepreneur. Continuing to simplify the way I live, and exploring ways of producing an income that not only provides me freedom, but that inspires me!

Right now I'm in Brisbane, QLD - Australia, but I call Gold Coast home when I'm not travelling. Shout-out to those from the down-under lands ;)

Yvette, we lived just across the border from you in Bentley NSW before the heat got to us. And travelling and working here and there can be so rewarding. I met so many great people doing this. Hope you are doing the same. WA is great and you should go places career wise so work hard, have fun and keep in touch.

Lovely to connect Ange! I am currently based in Brisbane, as I house-sit all over SEQ while I try and build my online business :) I do get down the GC occasionally, but not as much as I'd like!
I can relate to some of the passion you hold for sustainable living..that is in part the niche I've chosen! Would love your comments on my site if you ever feel inclined. Still growing of course, but in the right direction I hope.
I hope all is going well in your WA work, and your efforts as a carer.
All the very best to you, and drop me a line if I can ever be of assistance :)

Thank you so much Clare! I feel like I'm moving a bit slower than I'd like, but hopefully I'm making some ground :) On the straw bale houses..I'm not sure about in Australia, but the couple I did a feature on in NZ are now building a straw bale house. Pretty interesting!

Hey Yvette how are you ? I thought I would give you a quick update on my progress. I've been here about 18 months and am on my third website that I began early October. This latest site is the first one to make money. I've made 8 sales so far and 6 of them have been shipped from Amazon which has earned me $67 US. My sister and her family will be here just after new year but it's still the plan to visit Perth once I'm earning a full income to replace my welfare payments. I was quite new to the online business world but am finally starting to get a grasp on it. I still have those goals of helping my extended family and close friends but time will tell in the end if I'm successful. All the best and keep me updated with how you're progressing.

Hey Yvette it took me a couple of failed websites to kinda figure out what I was doing. My latest website is much simpler and cleaner so it doesn't overload the senses of the reader. It's easier to navigate but to tell the truth I simply followed a training from Jay, chose a different niche then- 'rinse and repeat'. There was another difference from my first two websites in that my latest one focused on a physical product where my other two where mainly information products.

Here's the link to Jay's training if you're interested in looking:

Hey Yvette, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

Hi Ian,
Thanks for checking in! I'm trying to get through the course material and view links etc that are recommended, which is still just a little overwhelming with the amount of content. So I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping I'm tackling things in the right order!
I read your article about bootcamp v's certificate course and to be honest I'm still just a little confused about what bootcamp actually is, but I think from what you've shared, that it's not right for me. It's really important to me that if I make money online it's through helping people attain products they really want. I'm not really multi-level marketing or getting sign-ups under my belt, which is what I'm figuring bootcamp is more about. I'll just do my best to keep working my way through the content hopefully everything will become clearer!
Thanks for all your help :)

pribs Premium
Hey Yvette! I know where you're coming from - it's easy to get overwhelmed because internet marketing demands A LOT of different skills and knowledge covering several different topics, but just keep pressing forward no matter what and take it all one small step at a time. As long as you keep moving forward no matter what gets in your way, you'll be able to break through and make money in this industry at some point. Just keep working hard and you'll get there.

Glad the Bootcamp article was helpful, even if it's not completely clear what the Bootcamp *is*, haha. If you need any help along the way, don't hesitate to reach out!

Hey Yvette, 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 Yvette! 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): 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 "Classrooms" 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.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


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


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
