As I move through WA training, I run into difficulty. Addle-brained and confused, I think I'm not cut out. I feel really bad and wish I didn't have to deal with it the pain. (Now, I know how others feel about running a business. I never understood that, before.) It takes a lot of guts to step out of your comfort zone and do something different. For forty years, I owned and operated a business. I thought those who quit-the 97%- were just lazy. Now, I see things differently.If you truely "love yo

In WA training, Kyle mentions, many times, to write "conversationally". Upon review, I find web post that sounds "casual", instead. Webster defines "conversationally" as, "an exchange similar to conversation." In other words, it's how you'd talk to a friend. You wouldn't be "careful". You'd speak, freely. Let it all hang out. Another word for this is colloquially- an oral exchange of sentiments, observations, opinions, or ideas. "Casual" on the other hand means, 1. Feeling or sho

Yesterday, someone querried, "How come nobody reads my posts?" I figured it was because no one could relate to it. Maybe it's your headline. If you start out with a title before you write the piece, it may not fit, after all. If it doesn't fit the piece, how will the reader get a clue as to the content?I only read the posts and blogs of my interest. I don't have time to read all of them. If I did I wouldn't get any work done. A shame, however, because I'd like to find the ones that suit me.Thin

I got into the dulldrums, recently. I was dull and listless. I felt I needed a nap or a brain-drain. I decided to write a new article, instead.I sometimes forget why I started with WA. Sometimes,I think it's about money (a good game). Or I need something to do. (I always need that.) But, after compiling my latest piece, I realized I just have a lot of stuff to get out of my head.When I do a Jaaxy keyword search, I get a ton of ideas. I get excited with all of the possibilities. Thoughts flood m

Business isn't for you, it's for the other guy. You're not selling something to yourself, your selling to a, totally, different person. Fill this need, and you'll do well. I see people go into business all the time. They have an idea of what to sell. They get poor to medium results. They think ths is ok. It is not. Survival requires an increase. (Even a small increase is an increase.) If you're not increasing as a business, you're not going to survive. Business is "trade". Think of it as, "What

I wonder if this is a well understood subject. I just wrote to a guy about how to talk to another person about his business. I concluded with, "And, help the guy out." Then, I realized this needed clarification.Talking to a prospect about Wealthy Affiliate or Affiliate Marketing may create some tunnel vision. When I say, "Help the guy", I mean, in any activity. Maybe he needs a jump start on his car. Everybody can use help now and again. It doesn't have to pertain to your business. Just, help o

I've been moving along in my training pretty well. Most of the tasks make sense to me once I've done them. But, every once in a while, I leave a task incomplete, because I've run into technical trouble and I can't continue. So, I put my question to the community and go on. I go on to the next task.Since they're simple tasks, I find this easy to do. It's easy to involve myself in the next step and soon, I forget about the incomplete one. I've done this several times. I notice, as these incomplet

Somebody blogged, yesterday, about non-responsive members being inconsiderste or ill-mannered. Every time a WA member comments, likes, or responds to a communication, there is an email generated. Most answer these. Some do not. I was dismayed by this until I went into to my spam folder. I found twelve WA mails, there.I'm sure you're aware, so I'm just reminding you, that your emails can go there. I hope no one thought I was rude or unresponsive having failed to respond. I'm checking my spam fol

I just completed Level 2 of the Entrepreneur Certification. That was chunky stuff. As I do more and more, in terms of application, I'm sure it'll become easy.Learning this tech on the computer has been a joy. I wanted to start in 1996, but had no one to collaborate with. I looked, again, in '05 and found no good help or advice. I'm so glad I found Wealthy Affiliate. It's making my dreams come true, Thank you, Carson and Kyle, as well as the entire WA community.

I just finished an article that I've wanted to write for a long time. In the past, I only drew pictures of it. If asked, I would explain it. But, I never wrote it up.I wanted to write, "How To Start A Business". This has been on my mind and near to my heart for decades. I finally did it. It was easier than I thought.I know a lot about this subject having started in business very young. Because of this, I still see it through a child's eyes. I was always embarrsed to communicate in this way, but
