Day 1: Welcome!
Hi and welcome to Day 1!
If you are reading the Day 1 of this email course, then you have taken the first and most crucial step to starting your own online business. Congrats!
Today I would like to talk a bit about what we will be covering during the duration of this course so you get an understanding what you can expect to learn in the next couple of days.
I also want to give you a broad overview of what you will be doing as the owner of your own online business. This will help set the stage for future emails to come.
What We Will Be Covering This Week:
- What It Truly Means To Do Business Online
- What is Internet Marketing and What is Niche Marketing
- Choosing Which Direction You Would Love To Take With Your New Online Business
- How To Set Up Your First Money Making Website
- How To Build, Scale and Expand Your New Online Business
- What Are Popular Business Models That You Can Use To Make Money Online
- Finding Legitimate Work from Home Jobs
- The Reality of Making Money Online Versus The Hype
- How To Get Started Online
- Where To Find Support

On top of what you will be learning, I will also have 3 tasks for you to complete at the end of every lesson. These tasks will help you get started by “taking action”-which is one of the most important for success online today. Remember, if you do not take action today, then none of your dreams will be realized. It will all just be theory and any theory money that you earn will be of no use to you.
So, I hope that in the next couple of days, I help to open your eyes to something that can and will truly change your life forever like it did for me.
About Me and My Life Working Online
My name is Vanessa. I have been a full-time Online Marketer and Freelance Writer for going on 6 years now and I started doing this full-time during the most difficult point of my life: when I was homeless.
The only things that I had at that point were my laptop, dogs, cars and some extra cash to help pay for a hotel from time to time. I found WA during that time and one of the senior members recommended to begin freelancing to get me out of my slump while focusing on my online business on the side.
Within a year (and after the birth of my son Aiden) I was about to file my first taxes as a business owner and I have never looked back. I was able to finally make the money I feel I deserved to earn instead of working my ass off for minimum wage and I was able to get everything my son needed to be a happy and healthy little boy.
I hope that I can inspire you to do the same and meet the goals that you have set for yourself. My website is not just about making money online.
It’s about teaching you how to do it properly and how to create a life for yourself that you have always wanted.
The truth is working online not only saved my life, but it also changed my life. I now have the time to take care of my son who will be turning 7 in July (no easy task mind you), I am able to enjoy every hobby I have: gaming, hiking and romping around outside. I want to teach you to do the same thing. You can use the extra money to fund your new lifestyle and to do whatever it is that you want to do.
Internet Marketing and What It Means For You
There is no doubt in my mind that every person who is receiving these emails will have different experiences when it comes to online businesses and Internet marketing. Regardless, I hope that I can help to provide some kind of value for every one, no matter where your skill level lies.
The concepts that are covered and the tasks that will be required of you in this course are pretty basic, but they are the stepping stones of helping you to get into the right mindset to begin building the foundations for your online business and to help ensure that it is long-lasting and successful as well.
Even if you have a little experience under your belt, it will only take you a couple of minutes to skim down this page and look for really helpful snippets of wisdom. Plus, on the 7th day of this email course, you’ll have access to exclusive training videos that I have personally created for those who have signed up for this course.
You do not need to be an expert in anything regarding making money online to benefit from the information that you will find in this course. When I first started online I had no clue what the difference was between a website or a blog or even how to run my own business. But if I can figure it out, I know you can too!
And as I said before you can do the exact same thing. All you need to do is follow the instructions listed here, take action and above all believe in yourself. If you can do all of that, there is no doubt in my mind that you will be successful too.
Some Helpful Getting Started Advice
Since you now know a little bit more about me, Internet Marketing as a whole and what you will be doing over the course of this email course over the next week and beyond, I want to share a little bit of advice with you that I wish I had known back when I was just starting out.
#1: Take It Slow
The number one reason for people to quit when they first start out online is that they feel a bit overwhelmed. I know how that feels. There is just a lot of information for you take it in. And when you first start out it will seem that everyone online has a “head start.” Don’t worry about this. Don’t forget, this is YOUR journey and yours alone. Take all the time you need. It will pay off in the end.
Of course, in order to succeed online, it is important for you to commit as much energy, effort and time that you can to this and above all don’t forget to take action. If something comes up that causes you to take a break from the training, then do so. The Internet will still be around when you get the chance to come back to it.
#2. Never Forget To Take Action
The one thing that you will hear from actual REAL and SUCCESSFUL online entrepreneurs is the most important thing that you can do right now is to TAKE ACTION! What this means is that you need to DO something. Don’t just read about taking action.
For some strange reason many people out there have this crazy idea that if you can read about creating online businesses, then you can learn everything there is to run one and this is simply not true. You need to take action and fail many times before you can succeed. Do not be fooled, you will make MANY mistakes along the way, but that is all apart of the learning curve. The real secret to overcoming this is not to be afraid of them. Look at these failures as a roadblock, then take one step in the right direction to get back on the track of success.
That is it for Day 1 of this training course. Tomorrow we will get into some concrete business-building ideas and even begin looking in which direction you will want to take your online business. Don’t forget to look for the next day’s lesson in your email. Below are the tasks that I want you to complete for today.
Task #1: Create Your Free Account At Wealthy Affiliate
You should have already done this, but if you haven’t you still have time to do it now. Remember, there is no credit card or personal info needed in order to sign up. It is actually 100% free to do!
There is no need to buy anything in order to complete my course! However, I will be linking some additional training information from time to time over the next couple of days and in order to view these training materials, you have to sign up with WA first.
Once signed up you will be automatically enrolled in the Level 1 Online Entrepreneur Certification Course on WA. It is free and it will help you start to set up your first money making website (again this is also free to do). Just get started by clicking the button below.
Task #2: Add A Nice Profile Pic and Short Bio About Yourself
I know this may seem silly to you, but as you progress through your Online Entrepreneur Certification course on WA, having a complete and finished profile will help you to better connect with the online community at WA. Remember, these people here are just like you! There are newbies and pros on WA, all learning and teaching about Online Marketing.
There are many pros at WA (including myself) that can help you during your training if you ever get stuck so this really benefits you in the long run.
Also, don’t hesitate to say hello to me on my profile and let me know that you have signed up for my online training course. I will ALWAYS help anybody that signs up to WA through my online course. Now you can rest assured that you will have a 1-on-1 mentor there to help you start up your Internet business.
Task #3: Think About What You Want To Accomplish By Working from Home
Are you wanting to make more money? Do you simply want to have more time to enjoy the things you love? Do you hate having a boss at work? Whatever the reason is, know that it is different for everyone.
Once you have a clear idea of what your goals are, you will be able to focus much more on all of the work that needs to be done when starting up and running your own online business. If you want to “be rich”, know that this is not clear enough. You need clear and concise goals to help you keep your focus.
Task #4: Read About Me (Totally Optional)
I know that you have read a lot today so you can save this task for later if you like.
I just want you to know that I was in the same position as you, even more tragically so. I am proof that you can really make money online and that you can really own your own online business. I knew nothing when I first got started online and now I do this full time as a living.
P.S. Today was kind of an introduction to this Online Money Making Course. In day two you will begin to learn exactly how Internet marketing works and how you can use it to make real money online from your own websites.
