Joined January 2016
Hi, My name is Denis Blanchard. I have been studying for ways to make money online for quite a while now. I had great ideas at first, but I quickly realized that there are no magic buttons, no getting rich overnight (even though there are a lot of schemes and/or scams out there claiming that they can).

This is how I found WA, I was skeptical about one’s claim and found it while reviewing it on barenakedscam.com. Well at first look WA seems pretty amazing. I am willing to work and learn so I believe I am at the right place.

Update April 2017:
After being a member for a while now I can honestly say that I truly believe that I have found the one and only place on the net that has a community feeling and that is genuine to its mission: to help people start and grow an online business. People here all have the same goal and help each other like no other place that I know of. WA rocks!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update April 2018:
At the end of January 2018, I decided to join the SAC (Super Affiliate Challenge) and I am so pumped up!

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/super-affiliate-challenge-12-month-intensive-training

I am proud to say that after a little less than three months, my new website is coming along pretty well! Not as fast as I want since I still work at my 9 - 5 full-time job. However, my plan is that I will be able to update my profile one day soon saying that I am doing this full time.

I made my first sale at about 2 and a half months after starting the SAC training and applying it to my website.

All this to say that it is proof that dedication, hard work, and persistence will prevail! You just have to believe!

Thank you Wealthy Affiliate and the whole community!

Update April 2019:
Working part-time at this is NOT easy but it is very rewarding if you stick to it!

As of April 1st, 2019, I have managed to write 126000 words which makes up 8 pages, a couple of landing pages, and 72 articles, which is not a lot, but it's what I was able to do with the time available to me.

I have managed to build an email list that I have accumulated by offering an ebook and I use Aweber as my email autoresponder.

My Social media presence has helped increase my traffic, and most of my social media referral traffic is from Pinterest and Twitter. I have not been able to get Facebook going as much, and this is something I will work on during the next year.

My organic traffic (from search engines) has increased exponentially in a year.
I have a bunch of articles that have made it to page one of Google and the result is I am getting more and more referrals.

However, because I can only work nights and weekends at my online business, it will take me longer than someone who works at this full time but I am confident that I will cross the finish line, but probably like the tortoise and not the hare!

Which is fine by me. :) I am looking forward to retiring from my full-time job (A few years to go) and this will be my full-time hustle.

We all have different paths to follow and mine is to create a solid online business to fall back on when I do retire (probably sooner than later if things keep on going like they are).

All I can say is that Wealthy Affiliate works!

All you have to do is apply what you learn here and never quit! You will get there eventually!

Update April 22, 2020:

With the COVID-19 making things uneasy outside, I was able to get things going inside, especially with my website.

April 2020 has been my biggest month so far: I have doubled the amount of traffic and email subscribers and more than tripled the number of referrals in a month (And the month is not even over yet)...

I was able to keep up (somewhat) with my writing but not as much as I would have wanted (of course, I say that all the time…). Last summer I did some renovations around the house and my website suffered (from not taking care of it for a few weeks) a few months later…But I managed to bring it back to normal by the end of the year.

My biggest challenge for the next year is to create videos for my YouTube channel. I haven’t had the guts to do it yet, but it’s in the planning stage right now (I even have a script written out to do a custom sign up video, I just need to figure out how to edit videos now…)…By doing so I know my traffic and referral will grow even faster. I have seen many Super Affiliates making it BIG with videos, so I will follow their lead.

As I said earlier, my situation is not like anyone else’s. We all have different paths, different goals!

I often see on live chat new members asking how long before they make money. My long answer is this: It depends on how much time, energy, and most of all PERSISTENCE you are willing to put out!

Persistence is another word for Faith!

Have faith in what you do, and it will become a reality. Some will get there faster than others, but that’s ok!

Stop comparing your results with others, instead compare it to your months and years past and realize how much you have grown! That is the way I keep going!

I will now leave you with one of my favorite quotes from one of my mentors (Bob Proctor) and it goes like this:

“Instead of focusing upon money, put your focus upon serving a purpose that will benefit many others and success will follow”

Have fun, create, and take fearless action until you win! :))

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PS Even though I let my first niche on the side, I will be getting back to it, but because of my time restraint, I need to concentrate on one project at a time!

PPS If you want to communicate with me, just send me a PM. I am always available to help! I have nothing to sell, I just want to pay-it-forward and help like I was helped when I first started!

And don't forget to have fun while building your Online Business!

Money Goals
My goals are to develop a passive source of income so that I can live my dream of having "time freedom". I have been working a 9 to 5 job for way too long and I strongly believe that the Internet will provide me with the means of "making it" from my home office instead of that daily commute.

I am sure you can. Many WA members have achieved it and I do not see why you can't. I have the same goal as you, and I do not want to work for someone else for the rest of my life, you never know when they will stab you at the back. It is always nice to have something to fall back on. Keep it going!

Cheers!
Jack

Hi Denis You have achieved so much in a short time. I am way behind your level in WA. My biggest problem was procrastination, however I have overcome that & am moving forward slowly. Keep on going Denis as the training & help here at WA is unbelievable. BTW I am following you.
I wish you great success @ WA
Best regards from another
Denis

I have been here for 2 and half years, but my first year and a half was all about procrastination. I did not have the drive I have today. Then one day I realized that hey if I want something out of this, I have to do something about it. I have not looked back since!

Hi Dennis. Thanks so much for the Follow. I've also added you to my network. I congratulate you on your success so far through WA. I've only been here a month. I'm still learning. Some days it is almost overwhelming. But, all the other days, make the rough ones worthwhile. I hope you have an awesome week. :)
All the best,
Wendi

Hi Denis, thanks for the follow and I am following you too now.

Thanks for spelling out the SWAG acronym, I've seen this word before, but wasn't quite sure what it was and some writers don't descript their acronyms and forget many of us are still learning this business and the lingo and don't know the who, what, when, where and how of SWAG.

To your success!

:)

Thanks for the follow, I'll do the same. I, like you, found WA while reviewing other online scams! I've been scammed a couple of times in the past 4 years and was really hesitant to join another network, but I agree that this is the best place for community help and a genuine family atmosphere of everyone helping everyone. I have only been a member for about 6 weeks and have learned so so much that I feel like I've finally found a "home" online..

Hi, thanks for following me. When I listen to people saying what you said , I see that I am on the right track.

Yes in 2016 I was still busy following the scams and schemes online.

I was not a loss though because that is how I was lead to WA.

Thank you
