5 months later & my first $1

Last Update: September 20, 2018

Hello Wealthy Affiliate Family!

After joining WA in April, I have FINALLY made my first affiliate commission of $8.78!

AND LET ME TELL YOU HOW EXCITING THIS HAS BEEN.

So exciting that after I had seen that dollarsign, I jumped into my freezing cold pool and did 10 laps.

I know, sounds crazy, right? But that’s how much my adrenaline was rushing from the joy of making my first online commission.

An update:

Since I’m here, I just wanted to give a little update on my progress since my last blog post.

You can read it here if you want: My first blog post

To keep it short: My life took another dramatic change simply because my other half and I have decided to move back to Vegas from Hawaii. We no longer have guardianship over my two siblings and this week, we have just finished settling into our new apartment in Las Vegas.

With our last minute decision of moving, there was a lot of stress involved. Especially with the Hurricane Lane that we had to prepare for! Thankfully we are all healthy and safe.

With that being said, my progress is still not where I wanted to be at this point. BUT I have finally made my first dollar and now is the time to put my full effect into hard work in my comfortable apartment.

Thank you all for your time and I hope your success is going in the direction you want it to!

You've got to be kidding me! Only $8.78 in commission since April??!! I don't know about you but I personally need to make far more then 8 bucks in this business,if that truly is a business here, than a mere 8 bucks! I could have spent the over $145 dollars on starting a nick nack shop in the 30 x 50 building outside! I wonder how much money this person had to invest up from to get the $8.78!!! I just spent money out of my mouth for food this month to upgrade to Premium, whatever that is and however it truly is going to help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not exactly sure what your issue is? Success isn't an overnight thing, and takes time.
Some build sites up before going into the market end, others do the complete opposite. It's how you approach things.
Others make money almost out of the gate, others go about it differently.
Considering the time and energy spent, this IS cause to celebrate!!
I could go on, but...

Hey, Larry! Just wanted to start with saying that being an affiliate marketer is not a "get rich quick" type of thing. HOWEVER, some do make their first commissions within a month of learning and building their sites! I personally have not taken this full time and have not put as much time as I have wanted to into this business. So with that being said, I am absolutely proud of making my first sale in 5 months :)
I hope you take the time to go through the training, connect with others and enjoy the many benefits WA has to offer for premium members!

That is absolutely how I felt too with my first dollar! But I just didn't have a cold pool to jump into!

That's fantastic, now you know it works! You just now have to power on and add more and more posts like the ones you did already. :)

Thanks, Kundi! I just followed you.
Whole food and natural living is something I'm trying to practice more. Is that what niche you're in? I would love to learn more from you :D

Hi Ayeejennell. I followed you back. Whole food and natural living is important to me and may indeed be my niche. I'm here because I write a lot and I may be able to make my living doing it with WA. I'm sure I could learn a lot from you after all you made $8.78 in 5 mos. I've been learning and working at this at least 10 mos. and have not made any $ yet. I have not completed the making money course because I wasn't ready, but I'm ready now. I must say that your good news has brought joy to my afternoon. There's a smile on my face. Thank you.
