I've been LAZY for 7 days and this happened.

Last Update: July 07, 2019

This won't be a long post, but just wanted you to see the power of recurring income.

WA is an absolutely amazing platform and because it is so great, people tend to stick around once joining.

That is GREAT because many people are building their businesses and having success with it.

I get great pride in knowing that I am helping people:

"I want to thank you for introducing this platform."

"Thank you for inspiring me to start this"

"Thank you. I just joined as a starter and like what I see so far. Scamxposer gives WA high markers!!! That is impressive."

"Hello BenjisDad, I am excited to be here. Thank you for spreading the word about this program. I have created my niche and my site."

See the value in helping people?

It's so rewarding!

But now to the point of this post....

So this July 4th weekend, I have largely used it to chill and not do much work. I still answered emails and did some supplemental training, but largely, I was just kind of lazy.

Overslept most days... hung out with Benji and BenjisMom... went to a couple of parties with friends... saw Spiderman Far From Home... just lazy, doing what I felt like doing.

To be honest, I am kind of guilty for doing it... but a break was definitely needed.

I will be back on the grind on tomorrow, but wanted to share a pretty cool thing that happened in the last 7 days of me being super lazy.


I'm in no way trying to brag or anything, but I wanted to show what could happen when you put the proper systems in place.

While I was eating BBQ... i was getting paid.

While I was at the movies... I was getting paid.

While I was at the park with Benji... I was getting paid.

Get the point?

Now my business has multiple income streams and WA is just one of them... the above image does not include other affiliate income from Amazon or other products, consulting, ads on websites and youtube, course sales, etc....

The screenshot is from only ONE stream of income I have built over time and it has generated me almost $1200 over an American holiday weekend.

Passive Income gets a bad rap online because "guru's" only show you the end result (kind of like I just did, lol). But I'm going to do you one better and let you know that this did not happen overnight.

Let me point out... that I am no one special. Just had a drive to make this work. I had to, for the family.

It has taken months and months to build processes that have my customers find me rather than me going to find them. That is called attraction marketing.

The exact thing that is taught here at WA. So stop reading this post and do something that is going to build your business and move the needle.

WA has carefully laid out the blueprint and you just have to follow it.

The map is there, just get to the proverbial X.

So keep blogging, keep making YouTube videos, JUST KEEP CREATING.

The more you create the more money you will make

Take Control,

Chris M

Thanks for this post. I can't seem to get started! I keep going further and further into the lessons but still haven't written anything. I am beginning to wonder if this is what I should be doing :-( However, your post solidifies that the business is out there if I ever get moving!

Hi Chris,
Thank you so much for these promising insight into your life.
I really love the way you speak of your family and also that you have the secret to attraction marketing.

Do you maybe have a training on that here at WA?
I'm in course 2, so maybe I'll learn further along in training.

Have a great week and greetings to your family.

Good job Chris! That is our ultimate goal - to build a successful platform that generates enough income to sustain you, even when you can't actively be participating for a time. This shows all the hard work you did in driving traffic to your products or services that people feel confident purchasing with you.

Don't feel guilty for taking some special "you" time. It's needed so that we can come back inspired with fresh eyes and ideas to keep growing our business(es).

Wishing you much continued success!

Hi Chris, how long have your sites been launched? I need to make a few bucks and wondered if I do it correctly it should work form the start. I have been scammed and paid out a lot before I came to this site. I need to add a few bucks to my money purse soon. Well, (not millions - this is not a get rich quick service). just e few small green paper pieces will be satisfactory.

Chris,

What do you mean you took a week off form your business? How dare you. :-D

Don’t you know that you can’t just ignore your website and YouTube channel or it will falter and diminish?

I have heard that time and time again, the great thing about affiliate marketing is it can and will produce a passive income (meaning you get paid for the same work over and over again not just once or even twice but many times). This is how we get paid while we sleep and anything else we choose to do.

I think it is great that you are able to take a break here and there, still move forward, and make money. Goes to show all the doubters out there, that the system has some great advantages to those that do the work, and work it hard on a daily basis. With dedication and devotion to assuring that your business is healthy and attracting traffic; like the training teaches, anything is possible.

The thing that influences your growth is your effort you put into it and you obviously have put some time into building your empire. Earning 1,200.00 on a week you took off how great is that, I personally don’t know of any other business that offers that kind of freedom.

You are a spectacular example of how to do it, just do what they show you do to in the training and you can be successful. Thank you for sharing your inspirational words with us and I hope you see further growth this year and you work even harder to achieve new goals that I am sure you have set for yourself.

The more we learn the more we can earn, but to earn while you learn now that is just a cherry that can’t be topped!

Keep up the terrific work, love reading your blogs; I am sure they help many stay focused!

Living Life Large, Calvin

awesome post. At the moment, all im getting are tyrekickers. They set up theyre accounts, get followed by Kyle, Carson, a few members, and stay stagnant. I dont know if they are doing the training, its anyones guess.. Anyway, i know i need to put more work into my website to get real referrals who actually want to do this. Thanks.

I wouldn't call it laziness. I can see you're a very hard worker, so I bet you probably needed the break.

Your post exemplifies what I love about this business. Some people call it "passive income" and some people call it "leveraged income". I like how you can have income that's not directly a time-money exchange. Great example and reminder.

if you dont find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.

I had taken some time off too. Part laziness, part changes in my schedule. So, I am back and this post is exactly what I needed to get the gears going again.

While you were at the movies, you were getting paid. Love it! I look forward to the day when I can say that.

Here's to all your hard work and sharing your keys to success!

Cheers,

Glad your weekend was enjoyable Chris. Other than some emails, I have been relaxing for a few days. Even though I am not there yet like yourself, still I understand balance is needed and a brain recharge should be taken to stay fresh.
I took time to read about some areas I will be writing on soon, and also went out to have some family time. Interestingly it became an opportunity to share what I do to a few relatives I hardly see in person or chat with online. that will change this week. In person, networking is hardly used by many online marketers, but it can be very fruitful.
