Who you should follow within WA!

Last Update: October 16, 2015

Hey, guys

Today I am going to give my opinion on a subject that I have seen quite a few people ask lately.

Who to follow at WA.

Let's get into it.

When you follow people here they are added into your network, and you need to build a network of people not only in WA but in your niche too.

So the best people to follow is... Well, Everyone.

Why?

Because in life you need 3 sets of people.

People who are below your level so that you can help and inspire them, for example, most of us newbies and even some people who have been here for a while are under the level of expertise of Carson and Kyle.

Well, look at what WA is. They are helping and inspiring us to reach their level.


Next you need people who are on your level.

Now anyone, of course, can be your friend, but this category of people will most likely be your main friends. That's not the case for everyone of course.

Anyways, people on the same level as you will have the drive and compassion to keep you motivated and you guys can also do a lot of collabs to help each out. <- Well you can do that with anyone, but you get what I mean.


Lastly, you need people above you in your network of people.

These will be your mentors. The people that will help and inspire you to reach their level.

Some WA members have seen success online and they want to pay-it-forward by helping others to reach their level, that why you will see people here helping others because it's a nice thing to do.


Alright, that's who I think you should follow at WA. Everyone because you can offer something to everyone and vice versa.

Share your opinions down below and until next time,

P.S I want to leave you today with a great quote that I like :)


Peace

-Anthony

Thanks for sharing and reminding us to follow others. On this subject, I see a lot of members with "Follow Me" added to their name. What do you have to do to have it added to your name? I don't have it.

Don't worry about the follow me button. That actually means that you don't follow that particular person :) To everyone that doesn't follow you they will see that next to your name :)

Glad that you found my blog useful :D

Absolutely too true! I do read the profiles, blogs and websites to get a feel for the type of person and "on lIne" chemistry ;) I am happily married, just so there's no confusion there, but yes I like to like the people that I follow :)

There's nothing wrong with that, no point working with someone you can't get along with or you don't see yourself getting along with them :)

Oh yeah, I can't remember but if you were the person that wanted me to look at their site please PM me, Elisa :) Thanks

Good point Anthony...although this is a great community, we are all here to try to make businesses for ourselves. As you said it's "working" together, and also that we're helping each other...how great is that?!

You don't see a place like this often that's why I am trying to take full advantage and that's why I always say to people to not let this go to waste.

I agree with you that it's important to follow all three types of people. I also pay attention to whether or not I resonate with the person. Similar motivators (like family), stories, and outlooks make me more inclined to follow someone.

I agree with you, when looking for people to network with on your level it's best to network with people similar to yourself because you can then test each other and push each other to success :)

Glad you liked my blog and agree with my points :) Have a good weekend.

How do you have enough time to answer all the emails.
Reply
BushiAntz Premium
I don't sadly. I most priorities emails because there to many. I have an email account with all my important emails coming through and then I have another for all the others.

Emails are always a hard thing to keep up with, but setting a schedule to answer can help you :)

Anthony, I love your ending quote. It is so true. There are many things we want to do or see and so we must sometimes do it on a vacation but we should be enjoying life everyday. Not necessarily every minute of every day but find something to enjoy every day.

I'm glad we follow each other.

I think I read a study somewhere that said that 88% of people lives are spent doing something they hate aka their jobs. That why we have TGIF (Thank God It's Friday).

Me I hate that I would rather spend 88% of my time doing something I love which I am now doing :) So if I can earn my goal of 6 figures a year from this in the next 5-10 years then I win :P

I agree with this-at first I was hesitant to follow people. I realized though as my network grew so did my ability to get feedback and guidance. And as I learn more and more I hope I can do that for others.

BushiAntz Premium
Yeah, of course, having the most followers isn't important what's important is how many followers you have that will care enough to help you and how you care to help them.

I personally think that this is the best way to build your network within WA and within your niche online :D

Feedback training opinions learning guidance mentoring and the one thing I put into my daily life is keep an open mind and open eyes. You never know what you don't know.

Alright Anthony are you sure you're are not at least forty something?
Where did you find all this wisdom. Did you rob the wisdom bank?

Haha, unless my mum has been lying to me about when I was born then no I am still just 18 xD

I learned a lot of things this past year from reading books and watching online talks from investors and some big business people.

I have also learned a lot from people within this community :) If it weren't for you guys I don't know what I would be doing right now.

Great Blog, indeed you need those 3 kinds of people...
But a small question on the side: What do you do with people in your network that are not motivated anymore or even negative?
Would you take action?

Also very nice quote!

Grtz,
Bert

I would speak to them, and ask why they are feeling the way they are and give them the advice to improve. I am guilty of this, but everyone at some point doubts themselves.

The difference is that successful people take that doubt and turn into their motivation to prove themselves wrong.

AngelsBird Premium
I completely agree with your answer, but when I would have the feeling that it affects my thinking (negative of course) then I would delete them from my group.

And when you are able to turn doubt into motivation, then you have a super strong mindset I think. Still something to learn for me... :-)
Reply
BushiAntz Premium
If someone is being negative to bring others down then yeah delete them, but sometimes people are negative because that's their way of crying for help :)

I kind of use my own doubts as motivation to prove myself and everyone who doubts me wrong, but I am still learning to do that more often :)

Then you are already on a very good track with your doubts!

I just saw a quote in a blog here from Arsenal's manager and here it is :)

When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't
the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation
- Arsene Wenger

I agree with that. Some people, however, need the help from others to keep that consistency :)
Reply
AngelsBird Premium
Yeah totally, but I will help others, but I first help myself in that consistency... That is something I learned the last years, you can help people so much, that you loose your own track

I just reacted on that post where that quote was at the top... ;-)

Hi Anthony, I love the quote. I must say for me, I tend to look at a profile and if I find it interesting and I feel a connection, those are the people I tend to follow. Apart from that, I follow newbies because they need to be encouraged and welcomed. Ches

I used to play team sports quite a bit and was quite competitive. I also played racquetball and competed in several tournaments. One thing my coach would do is put me up against a component that was better than me. I disliked this, because invariably I would lose each game. But, the theory behind it was that it made me BETTER.

One thing I have learned in my diverse background.... there will always be someone that knows more! Learn from them.

Conversely......

When I'm teaching someone something I already know, it RE-ENFORCES that concept within me. Teaching allows me to know the topic better!

So, I totally agree with you Anthony. There are so many diverse people within this outstanding community and we can all learn from each other..... either in a mentor capacity or teaching capacity, we both still learn.

Well done, my friend!
Cheers!

Great post, I especially like the Seth Godin Quote, it truly says it all, it's just like the majority of us saying TGIF. We should love what we do so much that we want to do it every day
