You Need to Quit Wealthy Affiliate Now!

Last Update: September 25, 2013

Has anyone close to you said this to you? I mean a spouse or family member who thinks you dont have what it takes to make it happen online. These people are called dreamstealers and can't take your determination to succeed away from you unless you let it.

In the beginning, my ex told me this was ridiculous and nothing at WA can help you make your dreams come true or I was wasting precious time. Well, she was wrong....dead wrong! I took what I learned here at WA to create a massively successful business to where I don't have to work for anyone again ever.

Has this happen to you? Has anyone tried to tell you this can't be done? Well say I can do it and I will do it! I believe you can do it, if I did it you can. Everything is here at WA that will teach you the right steps to create a business online or how to market an existing business. You never know until you really try. Sometimes you will get discouraged or others will try to dissuade you from doing this and honestly do what is in your heart and go with it. There are tons of great people here who will help you along the way and you must not let anyone try to take your dreams and goals away from you.

Hello everyone,

I heard about WA through a friend of mine, and they stated that this company will bring in a successful outcome. Has anyone made any money off this, I'm close to canceling my membership. Anything helps

Hello Sharnell1,
Well, I'm not sure how far you've gotten through the training here, but all I can say is that yes, it does work. As long as you follow the training and do each task set out for you in the lessons.

It does take awhile though, depending on your niche too, some are easier than others. But, if you keep working at it, it does pay off in the long run.

Hope that helps you out...
Best wishes in whatever you decide to do :) ~Sherry

Well I'm super ready to quit because I'm scared of so many things. I'm going to lay them all out here and see what happens next....1) I just want to make $700 a month, I'm on disability I don't want to jeopardize that for something that I may or may not be able to count on. 2) Since I'm on a fixed income the monthly fee while seems like a great value still is a lot for me and I wish I could go ahead and know I would be able to make the annual fee back I would be ok with that. But if there is a chance I may not make the Money, well I'm scared. 3) I'm not a writer, this scares me to death. I barely made it through high school. Would anyone want to read anything I write? There are doubts but these are really bigs ones, let's start here. Oh a couple more 4) My laptop is about to die and I can get a new one such a viscous circle. I really want to get out of. 5) I guess if I throw all that out and let's say I can find that group of people that want to read what I have to say what if I'm successful and it interferes with my disability, would that be terrible? What would that look like and how scary would it be? Would I be able to keep it up and support myself? Help me please!

I just want to be comfortable!

If you can't fix the problem of the automatic draft from the last day of the month to the first of the month I will be leaving the program.

I want to stay in the program but I'm on a fixed income. But the automatic withdrawal over drew my account. I thought that I had the choice of when I could pay the monthly fee at least at give me the choice to pay at the beginning of the month. If you can fix this I will have leave the program. And yes I have sent a lette to Kyle and Dave. Waiting for a response.

Go to the account settings https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile and manage your subscription settings. This is how you leave the WA program.

Kyle is the only one that can offer subscription management. You will need to send a Private Message to him to discuss refunding.

You shouldn't be comparing yourself to others. That will kill your enthusiasm because there is always someone farther along or more successful than you are.

However, if you insist on doing so, then choose who you compare yourself to. Choose those who just signed up. Think how much more you know than they do. Suddenly, you're WAY ahead.

Still, my point is that you should ignore the rest of the crowd and only concentrate on your own progress.

Hi David, I feel honoured to be the 100th person to 'like' your post! Of course what you say is true. My husband is my biggest supporter although I haven't seen results yet after eight months. To be honest, I haven't told some of my relations what I'm doing for fear of exactly that negativity that you talk about! But I know that even if it takes 2 years, I will see success.

Best wishes to you!

I am just a newbie to WA and building a web business, my wife just leaves me to it and never asks what I am doing, I know secretly she hopes I am going to make it!!!

So what have I done, mucked about with a few websites, never finished them but they are still there, I have built a JV website that is still embryonic but is taking shape, Made buddies with some great people on WA, written, published and sold a JV Kindle book on PMS, written a second Kindle book and starting a mini series, all relating to the content of my JV website.

I am working with WA members in the USA, Canada, Cyprus and India, now I think that is a success in it's own right, not financially but boy have I grown in experience, where else would I have gained all that experience, confidence, knowledge and my wonderful honest contacts for the price of a coffee or two a day!
To your success!
Bernie

Catchy heading :).

I haven't told my family what I am doing yet because I know what their response will be. I am waiting until I am earning enough and then I won't get the negativity. I suppose it is easy for me because I don't live under the same roof as them, but I can, to a certain degree understand why they are negative as I have been a victim of scam a few times before.

The main thing is to stick to your dreams and not to grow old wishing that you had continued to take action. I strongly believe that everyone should aim to not be the elder person who says, "I wish I had done......" and "can you imagine where my life might have taken me if I hadn't listened to the negative feedback".

You are your own person, follow your own dreams. Everyone else does.

I was married to one of these "party poopers" for 15 years. To the point where I shut up about my dreams-writing or any others. My folks were the ones who said "It's all a scam" but I turned off my ears (literally and virtual). What my new goal is: to support my mom, after her helping me for so long, followed by a new living arrangement for us (I've washed dishes by hand long enough!)

When I was first a member a few years ago, I was 17 years old, my parents were a little worried, and they asked me a few times if maybe I should just quit. They of course were worried that it was a scam.

Then the sales started rolling in! Now they encourage me all the time to get back into IM, which is what I've been doing. My dad even has his own website now :)
Reply

Now that would be a good story to tell. People tend to be leery about things they know nothing about and of course to try and protect their loved one. But WA has been nothing but honest and straight forward with everyone who joins. This is a legitimate website that teaches you exactly what to do and how to do it. The price they charge is terribly affordable as well.

You really encourage to move on, I too have doubt myself but seeing your blog really encourages me to keep pressing forward. I am stayng positive and be confident that I can make this happen.

Hi, Johan and everybody else here --
Thanks for your input, but right now I don't have any money to my name, if you can possibly understand that. I'm in the red in my checking account and have 52 cents in my wallet. The reasons I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate are still very, very important to me and I will continue here without the premium membership. Maybe in October I can get it back. WA said I have until 10/20/13 to get my premium membership back.
But I just want everyone here to understand that the only reason I had to cancel my premium membership for now is that I just don't have the money. It doesn't mean I'm giving up. It just means I have to plan better financially.

Wow David. You are right!

I had a couple friend that say "earning money online" it's just a *Dream* and I learned a lot here. I am earning moneyby just following the training steps here!

Those friend thaught I waste $359.00 but I don't think so!

Maybe with this $359.00 could be buy a new TV or eating fast food in a year. who knows!

I love this community. I remember when i came back to WA. You, Jeff, Richard (@RICH.) and other was the few people that say to me "Hi".

I know something new could be a new challenge but if you think in the benefits in the future (Staying with your family more time, Be your own Boss, Getting up late in the mornings, etc) it's just pricess.

For new and Existing members. DON'T GIVE UP. If you have any question jut let us know. We can help you!!

Just my 2 Cents :)

Nice post David! So far no one's actually said I should quit here at WA. My husband is resigned to the fact that this is what makes me happy, at least I think he is anyways, since I don't really mention too much of what I'm doing here anymore to him. It's easier that way I think.
If anyone would dare to tell me to quit, I wouldn't anyways. I'd just work at it even more!

Great post David, fortunately(or unfortunately...I go back and forth lol) I'm a bachelor and live alone, so I only have to fight my own inner demons of doubt. That's a fight I usually win, but like most, there are days when the load is a little heavier to carry than others. Whenever I find myself wanting to toss in the towel, I just go to my bathroom mirror and ask that guy I see staring back at me this simple question " Is that who you are? A quitter? The type of person that gives up just because it's hard? Is that really how you see yourself?" Thankfully the answer to that question has always been "No", so the race continues.
I often think of JFK's speech about America's quest to reach the moon.
" We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win "

I also remind myself, being a person of faith, that with God, ALL things are possible! :)

I was too a bachelor and right now am one still. My girlfriend in CA and I took a break for a bit.
Regarding marketing online If you really want it bad enough you will do it! You can always take a step back and re group but then come back. You might even find yourself coming back stronger than ever and even rejuvinated. Your right too, all things are possible! You make it happen.

I have had more people ask why I'm still doing it 3 months later after I have made very little money. I have had enough success in building free traffic that I believe in what I have learned here. I have learned the formula to traffic now i just need to produce the formula to convert.

I can only fail if I give up!

Thanks David. I dream of the day when I can make posts like this. I've being trying for so long I easily get discouraged and my family in Canada has lost confidence in me. They just can't understand why I keep trying. It is nice to be reminded by others from time to time that it can be done.

Part of the reason I moved back to Japan was to get away from the negativity and distractions - it was such a hard decision. Family can be complicated. I understand about your brother completely. However, I think, in the long term I will have made the right decision.

I still have my down days when building the biz but I bounce back fairly quickly. Thanks for this post. It means alot to many of us here at WA.

I totally agree. I spent my life listening to other people and thinking I needed a business partner, and all of them let me down in various ways. I now know that the best way forward is to truly be your own boss and only listen to one person, yourself. That way, if it all goes 'belly-up' you only have yourself to blame - and you can learn from your mistakes. Sometimes bad experiences can make you more successful - providing you learn from them. There are so many things that I'd never do again, but I had to learn the hard way :)

Exactly! I don't care for business partners either. Only you can follow your vision and do what it takes to get things done. Since it is your business then its all up to you. I took on a business partner (my brother) in the beginning....Big mistake and he is a pain in the *ss.

Thanks for posting this-I think it really helps a lot to see that Wealthy Affiliate does work.
And congratulations on never giving up!

No, I know you're right but right now I can't afford the $47.00 fee. No one is trying to steal my dreams from me. I've been unemployed for about 4-5 mos. now and just can't do it. I'll continue what I can do without the premium membership, but hope to get it back ASAP.

That's totally different Emma, money is tight for all of us I know. You can certainly learn quite a bit here for free though in the meantime.

I hear you Emma!! I am having the same problem. My husband is the only one of us that is working and we have 3 boys. My oldest has cerebral palsy and because of his developmental delays he gets very upset when I leave the house to the point of losing weight and throwing up (sorry) so I was looking into making money online, while you can learn a lot of information with the classes here it doesn't help when it costs money to get a site going. We're behind on our bills and don't have a dime to spare, God do I wish we did! So I completely understand where you're coming from! You sound like me, you don't want a hand out, just a hand up right?

Hey. I want you to focus on your name here at WA! abletodoit... Take that name and motivate yourself that You Can Do It!!! I know that $47 can feel much now when you are off the so called "work", but I will go with an old saying and hope that you don´t get mad at me??? In order to earn money, you have to spend money... but in the right way! That´s the way the cockie crumbles.. Take care now,

Johan

Hear! Hear! Well put, David! It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many naysayers around who want to throw cold water on our dreams. We just have to make up our mind and follow through with the effort it takes to reach that dream. We can do it if we encourage one another like you have done today! Thanks!

I know right? People just either don't get it or they dont have confidence in you.

It's funny how the people that love you the most seem to be the ones trying to stop you. They really do mean well; but if you succeed at something you have never succeeded at before, then you will have changed. Then they won't know you. And if they don't know you, they may not like you. And you may not like them.
It's not their fault, they don't even realize they are doing it. In most cases, they consciously think they are helping you.

Your right they do mean well but they really don't know the truth and how awesome the training here is. People tend to speak their mind before knowing the truth behind it and only you can prove them wrong by becoming successful at doing what you intend to do. These goals you set for your self can only be ascertained by you. Sometimes having people try to break you down can even motivate you further into proving them wrong. Making the step to make things happen and using WA as a training ground to do so it the right way to go.

Hey David,
Any business venture I get myself involved in, my girlfriend won't listen to one thing about what I am doing. Well... she would listen, she just doesn't wanna get involved. One of my motivational goals is to make more money than her by 1 year time! I wanna prove to her that I can run a business and make more than she makes in her 2 jobs. Her two jobs combined is about 60k+ a year. I have to surpass that!! :)

You can prove her wrong and my ex was the same way. She was an Exec at Warner Brothers and made incredible money and she didn't want me to be involved with this because she didn't think anything could ever come of it. She is an ex now but I wish I could have shown her that WA really has changed my world and can change yours and everyone else here. You just have to try and keep your mindset strong. Never stop and never give up.

Yes...I posted a blog on WA today..."Cloudy...with a Chance of Success". I've only been with WA for 3 weeks and I have dealt with those comments. I don't know what to tell people when they ask me what I do for a living...I don't want them to laugh. Your comments are inspiring and I don't plan to quit. I will be following you...mike

Sure thing Mike! This post is for you an people alike. We all have heard once or more that we are chasing a dream and all these internet programs are just scams. You know, though, this statement holds true since most programs out there are out for money with very little training. Some even train you but their training is usually focused on one area only. The cool thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the training is vast and everything is covered. If something is not found there are people in the chat who can help or guide you in the right direction.

The great thing about WA, which most everyone knows, is that the people in the chat who moderate and answer questions are not paid by Wealthy Affiliate at all. They are all members like you and I, which makes WA stand out from any other programs on the net. Can't say where I would be if I never found WA back in 2008.

David, I have to laugh. I just posted a blog on Don't Quit Now. Thanks for sharing. Most people do not have the courage to do something new and out of their comfort zone. That is why those of us who are courageous and out of the box thinkers do not get much support. I wish you all the best.

You did? HAHA how funny. Great minds and all. I was reflecting on what people told me in the past and seeing how people can get discouraged from their goals and aspirations for their future. Doing anything new can be uncomfortable and scary at times but some of the best pioneers in industry have taken such a leap of faith and look where they are now.

Very inspiring Dave, I had previously asked my college friend whether we both together can start a marketing company like amazon, he couldn't respond to it positively. He wants to maintain his CGPA (9.7/10) and wants to work under some guy in the future. I then realized it takes a leap of faith to do anything out of the box.
