Many Business Opportunities Online


I keep saying that there are many, many ways to start and grow an online business. Content & Affiliate Marketing, (what we are taught in Wealthy Affiliate), is just one of those ways.

It would be a great idea for you to play around with as many of those pathways as possible.

From Copywriting and Copy Editing to SEO and Social Media Management to AI Prompting and becoming a YouTuber.
It is all possible.

Build YOUR Brand


I was learning Copywriting for about two (2) years before I joined Wealthy Affiliate (WA) in October 2019.

The website that I chose to "practice" on was my professional firm's website. It resides in a somewhat challenging niche but I was persistent.

I defined my unique brand and I quietly marketed it on LinkedIn and through my Mailing List.

Little by little. Step by step. Each day doing a little more and stretching myself a bit further.

Then, during the 20's pandemic, I became a Certified Coach and started to develop personal transformation programs on Tony Robbins' and Dean Graziosi's Mastermind platform.

The Opportunity Arrived


Then, in January 2023, while commenting in one of the many LinkedIn Groups that I participate in, I received this message:

I politely responded to the young lady, explaining that I was not looking to turn my business into a franchise. She was persistent though.

In March 2023, I eventually agreed to have a Zoom call with one of her firm's Partners. Their business model piqued my interest and I agreed to have them "test drive" two of my programs in their markets.

After I returned from our Easter holidays, they reached out to say that the interest was overwhelming.

A Busy Q2 and Q3, 2023


Since April, we have had our heads down adapting the model and programs for Clients in new markets. Three of them, to begin with.

The legal side of things is not yet over but income generation is increasing faster than I could ever have planned.

One of the things I am trying to work out now is how to tie in WA as part of the franchise opportunity. It may be a long shot now but I think it is possible.

Change Your Script


Do not ever be afraid of making changes and trying new things. So much of what we are doing now is going to adapt further.

Do not think outside of the box.

Think like there is NO BOX, because, there isn't.

Remember, if you are not getting the results that you want . . . Change Your Script!

Wow, Cassi.

You are catching ALL of those Shiny Objects.
I am twerking my script day by day.
And I am working on it too.

This is such a powerful, uplifting, meaningful post.
Since there is no box, we got no excuse moving forward.
Taking action is really the key when opportunity knocks.

Hi Rachele,

This resonates loudly for me:
"Since there is no box, we got no excuse moving forward."

There is no excuse at all.
We are in full control.

Thank you.
Cassi

Absolutely, Sweet p 💗 (❁´◡`❁)

Rachele

So lovely, Rachele. 🤗🙂

Hi Cassi,

You never cease to amaze me with your inventiveness. I love how you obliterated the box thus creating a path forward with unlimited potential.

Thanks for the great advice. And congrats on setting up your own franchise.

You said it best. When preparedness meets opportunity anything is possible. My definition of luck is exactly the same ha.

Cheers.

Edwin

That is the perfect definition of "luck", Edwin.

We must continue to work diligently and smartly, pushing the envelope as much as we can.

The great news is that, with AI, it is getting much, much easier.

I trust that all is progressing well for you also.

Thank you.
Cassi

Hi Cassi,

I'm focusing on Google Ads and it seems to be taking a while. But my mantra is not to give up.

Cheers.

Edwin

PPC is powerful when you get the full hang of it, Edwin.

I am sure that you will.

Roy, it continues to be such an engaging and intriguing journey for me.
The discoveries are mind-blowing sometimes and, as we know, the opportunities are everywhere.

Thank you for all the support and encouragement that you extend to me and for always being so kind.

I wish you the very best also.

Good morning Cassi,

When I see someone who is working hard and really going for it, it's so good to see things coming together and working! It sounds like a really exciting journey, Cassi and of course, you are the one who has made it happen!

I think this is one of the things that amazes me with the Internet, there really are so many different opportunities available.

I look forward to hearing more about your journey in the future.

Wishing you a fantastic day.

Roy

There are too many opportunities available for us to not succeed, Roy.

Choose your poison, I say. 🙂

Have a good one also.

Cassi

Good morning Cassi,

That's a really excellent way of putting it!

We have choices!

Have a fantastic and productive day.

Roy

Thank you, Roy.

Have a great weekend!

Cassi

You too, Cassi!

Roy

Wishing you a successful week, Roy.

Cassi

That is absolutely fantastic to hear Cassi!

It's so true that the first, second or even seventh thing we try is not guaranteed to succeed, but.... by trying new ways and never giving up there will always be an opportunity to succeed!

Thanks for the share my friend and enjoy a fantastic week!! :-)

We must always hold on to the mindset and energy that will feed our learning, growth and opportunities, Nick.

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
If we are not prepared when opportunity knocks, it moves on to the next door.

Thank you for supporting.
Cassi

Spot on as always my friend and you're most welcome! :-)

Cassie, that is so incredibly motivating (and exciting)
I am so thrilled for you. You earnt this and nothing is stopping you. Who knows where you will be in 2 years or 5 years time.
Amazing
I appreciate that despite you being very VERY busy, you still have time to share your journey with the platform.
Thank you

👍🤗👏👏👏👏👏

So good to hear from you, always, Cordelia.

Gosh, when I started in WA in 2019. I had NO idea where I would go.
At one point I became quite overwhelmed with all the different possibilities that kept showing up.

I do believe though that, "when the student is ready, the teacher appears" and opportunities are always present IF you keep preparing yourself.

You also have to be open to receiving.

I almost did not pursue this opportunity.
That would have been quite sad.

Thank you for always supporting me and cheering me on. 🤗
