My SWAG Achievement: Month 1

Last Update: March 04, 2018

Whew! What a month! SWAG is keeping me on my toes and oh, how I am glad for the opportunity. Of course, my greatest accomplishment is writing 12 posts within the month, and over 20,000 words. That is a big deal for me indeed.

I need to participate more on this platform though, like being more active in chat, and help more people each day within WA. I must say I made the effort, but I can do more and so I have to step up.

My greatest challenge however is to get friends and family to join this great platform. How can I convince them? Even though I have shown them my websites, and what I am earning, that’s not enough to get them in. You see, the earning has not reached the convincing level yet and until it gets there, they will believe that it's worth it.

One of the problems to get them on board is, “Once bitten, twice shy.” I had bad online experiences before, so they are turned off. Nevertheless, I have not given up on hope. I am hoping SWAG can get me to the level for my friends and family to come on board. I look forward to stepping up even more for the 2nd month.

My family is supportive of what I do in the verbal aspect but that is as far as their approval goes. But that is okay. They know what I do and when they are ready they will come to me. Until then I will do what I need to get my business running. That's the way I look at it.

Tried and true


Congrats on what you have done!!!!

Hi Carol,

Awesome achievements! I’ve only successful convinced one of my friends to join the platform. Unfortunately, this is not for everyone. It requires the right mindset and attitude.

Keep pushing and one day they will ask you to get them in(:

Kind Regards,

Thanks for the encouragement Eric, well appreciated. It's good to know that you have someone believing that WA works. It's really not for everyone.

Hey Carol, you're doing very well. Congrats on writing your 12 articles. Don't give up with your friends and family. I don't know if you have already done this but ... there are many success stories here if you want to share with them.

I don't approach my friends or family but they absolutely know what I'm doing and same thing, I know they are waiting to see results. I haven't given up on them because they will see great results from me.

When I meet people and they ask what I do, I let them know I have 2 online businesses and that I am an internet marketer. This seems to raise their curiousity and they will ask questions. I tell them I don't carry inventory and they ask more questions... eventually no knows.

I also found that most people who are maybe ready to do this are the ones who don't like their work, don't like their bosses, tired of working, etc. Even the ones who are unemployed... they're already spending more time at home (I think)... They are the ones who will be successful here.

I recently met a contractor who I hired to do work on my house in the Caribbean after the 2 hurricanes went thru last year, we keep in touch and he likes hard work and would like to be more independent... I think he already ordered his laptop this weekend and he and his daughter are going to join WA.

You're doing great. Keep up the good work and together we will be even more successful.
