Back To Work - Reality Makes Me Sad

Last Update: June 14, 2019

As some of you may know I live and work on a Kiwi Fruit farm in New Zealand. For the last 2 months the work slowed right down and I was able to indulge myself 100% in Wealthy Affiliate.

Sadly reality always has a way of intruding on my fun and I have started back on the farm full time again. This is my reality, like so many other members here, until I can replace my income with my affiliate business. I have only been back at my paying job for 2 days, and it has increased my determination to make a full time, and beyond, income from my laptop business.

All my free time from tomorrow morning, onward, will be spent on business, so my interaction in the Wealthy Affiliate community is going to drop right down to almost zero.

I apologize in advance, if I don't comment on your blog, answer a question or encourage you on your journey, but as we all know the bills have to be paid, and a dream business built.

Just 3 months on and I have 2 websites I am proud of, rankings on Page 1, in all the search engines and some amazing opportunities that I have affiliated with. I am determined not to let my momentum slip and am now moving onto my social marketing and networking.

I will miss the blogs I love reading here, the people I am slowly getting to know and the information I have gained from doing simple things like cruising the live chat.

I hope to once again be fully active in this community in the not too distant future.

Here is to success for everyone at Wealthy Affiliate.

Denise.

Clearly you have your priorities right. Your presence here in the community is nice, but that doesn't get your site work done or your content completed. Many reading here know they should be doing the same thing ... me included.

Kiwi is one of my favorite fruits. Does your farm produce the strawberry kiwi?

Hi Denise, bit late response, how ever I am sorry to hear that you need to only concentrate on your daytime job.:(

We will miss your lovely energy round here.

Hope to see you back soon, though next year.

Who knows you get some spare time and we see a nice post of yours again. :)

Wishing you well for time being Denise., nice knowing you! :)

Warm Greetings

Hi Menka thank you for your lovely comment, I am still slightly engaged around here, but have to focus on my business, so things like helping in the chat area have fallen off. Have a great day, I have just completed a 2500 word blog I need to get published, whew.

This way you still stay connected with us.:)

Good luck with writing!

Definitely understand, we have to put our website first if we plan to leave our job behind. WA community blogs and such won't pay the bills.

The JOB can tend to inspire us to separate from it ASAP.

Hi Fran, thank you, I hope to get free time back one day, unfortunately it gets so busy on the farm now until next year that I even end up losing the support form my husband as his hours get longer and longer. I hope to murder my job really soon.
Thanks Denise.

I hear you! It is hard to divide my attention between WA, my business, My family and my my full-time job. I am looking forward to the day when we can all say, our dream has become our reality!

Best wishes,
Karin :)

I understand what you are dealing with.....I have a heavy work schedule myself. I often read a blog or two during breaks just to make certain I am active in WA every day!

Thanks for posting

Hi Denise,

You know your priorities and I commend you for doing what you got to do. When your available business time is shortened, you must ficus on the actions that move your business forward. Everything else is secondary. We will understand your absence in the communication realm.

As usual, I wish you all the success in the world.

Edwin

I know where your coming from. I have never been prolific at posting here, and seeing my ranking move from 7000 to now over 11000 is not a good feeling. It is not as big as the last move though which went from 7000 something to 19000.
But, gotta focus on the big picture.

Michael.

Hi Michael, the big picture is my focus from now on, I did like having spare time to cruise this platform, but I know I will get back to cruising in the future. There should be a way to turn off our ranking, lol.
Thanks for your comment and have a great day,
Denise

Reality does have a habit of stepping in so we have to step back a bit. The main thing is to keep going with the websites then back to here when time allows. See you soon.
