How to get started using MyDagaz™

It is not very complicated using MyDagaz™, but there are some steps you need to take in order to fully enjoy it and get the most out of it. If you are not sure if you want to become a full member, you can register a free account so you can view blog entries and utilize other features like the Wish List.

Step 1 - Membership

MyDagaz™ is based on memberships, and the membership fee is only $4.95 per month for a 24-month membership, or $6.95 per month for a 6-month membership. The membership fee allows us to have the appropriate staff to support our members and answer questions. The first thing you need to do is to sign up for a membership through our website. With a full membership you now gain access to all features on our website, most importantly the MyDagaz™ community and the Goals Administrator.

Step 2 - Identify Goals

Once you have become a full member you need to figure out that goals you want to pursue and in what order you want to pursue them. You can of course pursue multiple goals at once, but be careful you don't take on too much at once. Select the top 2-4 goals you want to achieve first, and determine which categories they belong to. Use the MyDagaz™ Goals Manager to set up your goals so you can track and manage them easily.

Step 3 - Determine Milestones

Now that you have set up a few goals, you now have to figure out how you want to track your progress towards the goals. There are many ways to do this and it is up to you to decide. Regardless of what milestones you pick, you will need the Basic Charms which is the Start Charm (circular shape charm), the Halfway Charm (oval shape charm) and the Finish Charm (diamond shape charm).

For example, if your goal is to lose 30lbs, you could select the milestones 2.5 lbs, 5 lbs, 7.5 lbs, 10 lbs, 12.5 lbs, (don't need 15 lbs since you have the Halfway Charm for this), 17.5 lbs, 20 lbs, 22.5 lbs, 25 lbs and 27.5 lbs (don't need the 30 lbs charm since you have the Finish Charm for this). So, for this particular goal and with these milestones, you would need 10 milestone charms in addition to the three Basic Charms, a total of 13 charms.

Do this for each of the other goals you want to pursue now, and determine which milestones you want for each so you can purchase the charms to need.

Step 4 - Purchase bracelet and charms

Now that you know your goals and their milestones, you need to purchase the bracelet and the charms to go with it. You can do this in the Shopping section of our website. Select the appropriate bracelet and the correct length for your wrist, and then pick out the charms you need for each goal within the appropriate categories.

Step 5 - Collaborate, Socialize and Focus

While you are waiting for the bracelet and charms to arrive, familiarize yourself with the MyDagaz™ website and all its features. Start making friends and help others that might need it, or post questions you might have and get help from the community. Keep the bracelet on as much as you can and look at it and find strength and motivation in it, while focusing on achieving your next milestone so you can attach another charm.
