Are you looking at all the wealthy affiliate reviews and wondering "How could this be real?" Everyone seems to be happy and supportive of the WA University website and training site. Is everyone making money? Is there anyone that does not think they have got their money's worth?

There has to be some complaints right? Here is the only complaint I can really claim at this point. If I would have taken Kyle up on an offer he made to me back in November of 2012, my balance sheet for WA would show $76 less in the expense column..... and my expense will be another $47/month for the next 4 months if I don't make a change. I will probably not make any changes. I am certainly not leaving.

I am still paying the monthly premium subscription fee of $47/month. From a financial viewpoint, the annual subscription is a better way to go and I have thought about upgrading to the annual fee. I would like to see some annual sales, but I think monthly subscriptions are more common. I like when people stay on the monthly plan, so I will probably stay there as well. The person that referred me has a pretty committed sale that he can rely on every month. I can't afford to quit paying now that Kyle and Carson are paying me more and more every month to help expand this community. I used to say I was happy to pay the upgrade for the tools and resources I get from WA. I still am, but now I am getting paid to stay here as a premium member.

Looking back, I should have paid the annual fee back when I sold an ad on the first site I built with my premium subscription. The site has been ranking top 3 and most of the time its #1 for the last 6 months above Amazon's links for similar products. It doesn't generate much from amazon, but it makes the client featured there happy. BTW, that site has made considerably more than $76 in ad clicks since it went live.

Want to start an online business? The tools and resources you have here at Wealthy Affiliate University are worth a lot more than the premium member upgrade. You will NOT be hit with any upsells and you should be protected from the scams and schemes of the Internet Marketing world. Most of us that see this stuff like Empower Network and Rippln and are quick to expose it here. My apologies to you for hurting your feelings if you were one of these people. You will probably catch us ripping all attempts to recruit the WA members to their scams. If you have questions, just ask. If you are brand new, you can communicate with any of the premium members here for 7 days with your starter membership. The easiest way is to catch us on chat. You can leave a question on my profile or my private message if I am not online when you are online.

Good Luck with your online business!

Thanks,

Bo Gilbert

Hi again!!

What licences, tax registration and permits do I need to set up a hosting business or any of the other online business ideas I have come across.

As you can see, I am very new to this...

I'm not a tax person, an accountant or an attorney... Most online businesses are simply additional income listed on your individual tax return. If you are going to set-up you own corporation, then you will need to consult the laws and regulations of your local area.

Thanks Bo - I like a bargain when it is offered and I immediately paid for a year's subscription.

The complaint that I have with Wealthy Affiliate University is that the time I wasted trying to find the answers in the wrong places. What I've found with Wealthy Affiliate University
are simple principles that will work now as well as 5 years from now. I challenge the training and resoures available to you anywhere. The only reason you won't be successful is because you didn't apply the principles, because they do work. Wealthy Affiliates University is for anyone seeking to enhance their way of life.

It's definitely a well worth money spent. All the training, support, and realizing that other professionals agree that this is not a scam--really not helps us as a whole, but any newcomers that are looking for a money at home business!
