My WA experience thus far
If someone had asked me a year ago if I would ever have my own website, I would have laughed at them. When I got out of the Marine Corps in 1977, I went to work for IBM in Boulder Colorado building copy machines on a 90 day temporary basis. They liked me and offered me a full time job with their company, but I refused because I couldn't see myself building copy machines all my life, even though they told me I could get into computers also, and they would pay for all my schooling. My thought was that computers were never going to go anywhere. How foolish I was!
I am so excited now with the progress I've been able to make within the Wealthy Affiliate community! I'm really not sure how anyone could fail, if you just try your best! Log in here at least once per day. If you don't have time to complete a lesson, at least read some blogs and reach out to people who are new...make them feel welcome just as you were made to feel welcome. If you don't know the answers to peoples questions, encourage them in their quest for knowledge, and follow them so that you might know the answer as well. Knowledge is power and it is also the pathway to success. Share your experiences with your friends on Facebook and other social media's....not only could you end up with money in your pocket, but you will be sharing a way for your friends to achieve independence from their J-O-B!
I still struggle with some of the lessons, mostly because computers are a foreign thing to me. The learning curve for me is much more difficult for me than for those of you who are younger, but I know I will succeed. Some of the issues I have are due to the fast pace of technology, where a process is not the same as what was presented in the lesson, but that's very understandable. I'm fairly proficient in Facebook, but trying to set up my G+ account has been a struggle. I joined Instagram and started following some friends, but I keep getting "like's" and follows from scantily dressed young ladies, and blocking them seems like a never ending process. :-0 Pinterest is also a challenge for me, because I don't undertand who "pinning" process, but I continue putting one big foot in front of the other, and I will conquer.
I hadn't imagined that this would be so long-winded, but my excitement sometimes shoots into my fingers and I tend to blather on. Needless to say, I look forward to the time when I can create more websites because one benefit to being older is that I have many life experiences, therefore, many niche possibilities. I hope that I can be of help to some of you as time goes on, and I know that I will be reaching out to you for help and advice as well. May you all have every success and happiness in this New Year. God Bless.
