Leap of faith...
So here is a bit of my story. I hope that you can find some common ground in my motivation and desire for personal success.
For the last several years I have been working in the bill collection field. I fell into it because I'm good with people and I have a natural ability to "close the deal" with debtors. Now, that being said, just because you have a talent for something, that doesn't mean that you're necessarily happy doing it. The collection field - whether its credit card, medical, or student loan debt, collection work can be pretty miserable.
My family has had a string of bad luck in the last year, topping off with my wife being laid-off of a position she held for nearly 20 years due to the company 'downsizing'. We have been living off of my income for over 9 months. All of our financial reserves have been spent and we have been living from paycheck to paycheck...barely able to even buy food let alone any other luxuries.
For a long time I began to think that I failed my family, that I was't able to provide for my family the way a man should. The day-to-day stress has been ripping my family apart.
So I made the decision to take my financial future into my own hands and began researching online income opportunities. I found many scams promising results too good to be true. Then I found the Wealthy Affiliate program. I looked online for the pros and cons. The reviews and ratings for WA showed many more pros than the other programs out there. But I have to be honest, the $47.00 recurring monthly fee scares me a bit. I know it may not seem like a lot of money to most people, but when you're down to your last $32.00 in your bank account it can be very difficult to spend that money on something that may or may not pay out in the end. I was fortunate enough to see that there was a "Special Offer" for $19.00 for the first month. But when you only have $32.00 to your name and you're weighing out the choices of putting a little fuel in the car to get to work, or buy a meager meal for the family, or spending money towards an online opportunity...the decision really is a difficult one.
In the end, I rationalized that if I'm to make it out of the financial grave I'm in then I'm going to need to make an investment in myself and my future. I took what I refer to as "a leap of faith", I purchased the first month and decided to see if this program generates results in conjunction with the work I do on my part. I don't know where this is going to lead yet, but I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful and keep my faith intact.
I'll let you know how this journey goes.
