It Takes A Village

Last Update: September 03, 2018

Wealthy Affiliate is THE place to be to ... I've heard it said that it takes a village ... and I am going to take the liberty of saying it takes a village to create a sustainable online business. This community is genuinely concerned and caring for each and every one of us to make an honest go with the internet. I'm going to say it again - Wealthy Affliate is THE palce and to be to gain the knowledge and support to launch your own online brand.

I'm a super newbie here at WA; actually only 8 days ago in fact AND my network of other WA members has grown from 0 to 112! Every one of those folk have had a good word to say to me and have offered to help me out when and if I should need it,

Not only have Kyle and Carson created world class step by step training but the WA members have created other trainings as well. So many good people ready and willing to offer a hand and a heart to help each of us gain the knowledge and confidence to build a sustainable business. Something that really caught my eye in the first week here at WA is Kyle's note that "We care about you and your success online!" It's something I can vouche for 100%

I've had a look into other online business training but Wealthy Affiliate stands head and shoulders above the rest. By far the biggest gem in all is of this is the group of internet entrepreneurs who are here to help from Kyle and Carson to the newest person to come on as a starter member. Fantastic!

Thank you one and all for allowing me to find a place to create a work environment I can proudly call my home village!

I have tried many programs in the past, and there is a reason why I always keep coming back to WA. It is an awesome community, and the platform and training keeps getting better from one year to the next. I've been with WA for 9 years, and have no plans to go anywhere else.

Hi Jennifer, I totally agree that there are a ton of programs out there but none deliver the real deal as well as WA. I'm glad that you are here to stay. For that matter so am I. High five on that one! All the best, Julie

Hi Paul, I was just pondering the amazing idea that here we all are ... focusing on creating and maintaining each our own separate businesses. We are all interested in helping each other succeed, in sharing our latest discoveries, realizing that there is no need to compete - there is plenty of market out there in the big wide world to go round. No scarcity thinking here - no "trade secrets" ... just pure kindness. Peace in a community of 1.2 million (am I right in this number) Now this is something to celebrate!

Hi, Julie.
Your ponder (lol) is pretty accurate. I'm not sure how many of the 1.2 million are active but yes, that many if not more have been served here through the platform since it was first created back in 2005.

One reason for the success of WA is 'The Community.' Many other business models fail over time because the community within becomes inactive. The community becomes inactive due to the inability of the business model to evolve with change and to stay ahead of the curve.

Did you know that Wealthy Affiliate started off as a Keyword List membership website that offered keyword lists to Internet Marketers in many different niches and nothing more. Wealthy Affiliate members were paying $359.88 per year ($29.99 per month) for this ‘Keyword’ service and received one keyword list per week.

Their business model was based on the following:

1. Anyone can achieve success online;
2. Anything NEW can appear to be overwhelming at first;
3. Very little Technical or Prior Business Experience is required because these skills can be taught and learned; and,
4. Success is a Journey.

WA has come a very long way since 2005 but the foundation of their business model (listed above) and their yearly membership rate remains the same. Pay special attention to number 3 and you will understand what you ponder about WA being a Global Village.

Another major reason for their success is directly related to the secure environment that is provided for the members here. Unlike other social platforms where security can be a major concern, the environment here is under much more control.

I know of many members here that are more than happy to pay the yearly membership fee just to be a part of this community. It allows them to forge friendships and relationships with others from all over the Globe that share similar goals and values.

By the way, I really like the title of the post your have created here. It is completely open-ended for more food for thought.

Nicely done.

Regards from Canada,

Paul.

Dear Paul, I really appreciate the history sharing about WA ... I like how incredibly dynamic a choice that the fundamental principles were set upon at WA. I reckon I will take a seed from this and grow my very own empire. After all, the internet is merely an extension of people connecting to people. There needs a sense that we are reaching out to each other person to person - hmmm It's given me such inspiration! Thank you so very much Paul.

Hi, Julie.
Here is another seed from the website that I am working on:

“Wealthy Affiliate was built off the core idea of helping people succeed online.” – Kyle & Carson.

"As you learn more and more about how to do business online and as you begin to see your own personal business take shape, you are going to be able to help others in the same way that you have been helped. It is the purest form of ‘Pay It Forward’ anywhere."

"WA is the largest community in the world of aspiring and very successful Internet entrepreneurs. It is a platform that encourages engaging with new people, making connections, networking and creating new friendships."

By, the way...what part of the World are you from/in if you don't mind me asking?

I was born in a mud hut village in Northern India without running water or electricity. I have seen much and I am extremely grateful to my late father and mother (who is still with us) for their leaps of faith and the many sacrifices made to get myself and my two siblings to where we have arrived at.

I wish you a most glorious day. You are doing extremely well and will continue to do so.

Kindest regards from Canada,

Paul.

Please don't put yourself down on the road to knowledge. I know you won't.

Everybody are not Rocket Scientists here. We all are different which makes us unique. Go at your own speed my friend.

The yellow brick road will lead you to that dream, sooner than you think.

Take care and God Bless you!

Great! Now I have a secret and please keep it to yourself. They might think you're nuts what I have to say.

Ready???

I talk to him everytime I have an "obstacle" to cross. I don't do it out loud, like I said people would have doubts about you if they see your mouth moving with no one around. LOLs!

I just talk to him about my insecurities and by golly he answers me.

Imagine that guy has powerful linguistic powers. He can talk pigeon English like me.

But truly he will answer me. I like that. Thought I share that with you.

Hee hee and he will guide you! No kidding just talk to him Julie,
at first for me at least I thought my thoughts were saying it.

Y'know the mind thinks it said it but, NO! He actually talks to you.

Boy I have some stories to tell you and I know you won't believe it.

My good friend her name is Norma, bless her heart she is gone and past several years ago (7 yrs now) whom I've had the pleasure of working with is gifted with y'know them psychic powers.

One day at work in the morning I was about to clock in she approached me and said, "Frank, do you know an angel by the name of Michael?" Norma is at the time an athiest. ( not a God believer) This happened over 25 years ago.

I said that name sounded familiar. I'm a Mormon but not a practicing one at the time. She said he talked to me. This occurred in the evening 9pm while she crochets, she does every night.

Anyways she had kept the notes and in the chronological order that went on for 3 months.

I know, I know it sounds so unbelievable Julie but if you want to read her transcripts, let me know. This is Michael the Archangel I believe that spoke to her.

I can send you a copy of what was said. The language is sorta bible language maybe you can understand it better than me.

Let me know, if you're interest.

If you understand it (believe me Julie) nothing evil was said, I promise but he had a message to her.

It's OK if you don't care to read it it's totally OK if you care not to.

See some have said to me it's the Devil that's speaking. I don't think so.

Let me know.

Take care Julie!
