Are Kyle & Carson Actually Real?

Last Update: November 16, 2015

I know it's very common in this industry to have fake personas especially if you're promoting something shady. You don't want people to really know who you are, so you might make up a name or even use fake pictures. Some people do this because they know if folks run into them they may be welcomed with a punch to the face.

I'm sure when some of you first came to WA you thought the same thing about Kyle & Carson. You might be reading this now and still think these guys are fake. Well I gotta keep it 100% real with ya'll...


The Truth About Kyle & Carson

The reality is these guys are….. really real! LOL No, Kyle & Carson aren't mythical creatures or fake personas. They are just as real as you and I. And yes I do really exist as well. Check out the pic below of me and the guys:

So How Did I Meet Them?

Well I was fortunate enough to be chosen to attend the Las Vegas Incentive program this past week. If you don't know what it is, check it out by clicking here.

But basically it's for affiliates that have hit a certain number of WA sales within the year. It's Kyle and Carson's way of thanking us for introducing so many people to this wonderful community. You're flown out to Las Vegas, stay in the MGM, Hang out with the guys and other successful affiliates and see a sweet show.


A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words...

Here are some pictures of my trip to inspire you. My Livingroom suite, my actual bedroom, The View from my room, Ticket to Michael Jackson's Awesome Vegas Show. The crew:

But as you can see, Kyle and Carson don't half ass it. You really feel like you've made it with them.


So What Are Kyle & Carson Really Like?

On the web you can fake the funk and act like whatever you want. We all know there are marketers out there fronting like they are ballers or as if they really care about you when they don't. But the reality is most of guys are as fake as the boobs I saw in Las Vegas. (Don't judge me. LOL) The good news is that the Kyle and Carson you've seen here at WA are the same in person. They sincerely care about helping you make money with your online business! The game plan to achieve this is by continuing to improve Wealthy Affiliate based on the feedback of it's community. Some would argue that Wealthy Affiliate is already the best. At this juncture, I couldn't argue against that and why I've been here for so many years.

But Kyle & Carson are over achievers and not satisfied! They really want to see ALL of US succeed in our online businesses not just the top affiliates promoting WA.

So not surprisingly our discussions were on how we can improve WA for all of you. Doing so will obviously make us all more money by default. Because the happier folks are with WA, the more likely they are to stay and invest in themselves via a membership here. However we weren't talking about shady tactics or tricks to squeeze more money out of members. We focused our energy on enhancements to WA that make learning even easier, adding tools to keep you better organized and getting rid of things that may not provide as much value.

That was the direction of our conversation. That's a vast difference than some of the MLMs meetings we all have witnessed where it's more about hype and pushing more product down people's throats.


I'm Proud

My take away from this Vegas trip is that I'm proud to be a member of WA and proud to be under the leadership of Kyle and Carson. It's so rare to find people who are that successful but at the same time are humble and want to help more people. That's the type of people we should all associate ourselves with. You know the saying birds of a feather flock together. And I'm happy to be associated with folks with that type of integrity. This is why Wealthy Affiliate will continue to be my number 1 recommendation for anyone looking to make some real money online and willing to work to make it happen!


My Hopes…

I really hope that next year I see a lot more of you folks at this conference. It was great finally meeting and hanging out with my buddy Steve from IveTriedThat.com and his lovely wife Amanda. It was also great meeting the other guys too. The amount of talent and knowledge at the conference was mind blowing. And I know many of you would benefit from it! But even if you're not at the conference my hope is that you take full advantage of the training, support and the wonderful leadership of Kyle & Carson because they are the real deal and want to help you!

Thanks for reading.

Yep, I can definitely relate. When I joined Wealth Affiliate, I received a "generic" email. Nothing unusual. But then I received a message, within the portal; I was still skeptical, so I decided to send Kyle a message back. To my astonishment, he replied back! And I knew he was "real" because he commented to specific things I said in my message, one of them being that I was surprised he got back to me. (Pinocchio saying "I'm a real boy!" kept playing over and over in my mind, lol).

A blog from Steve of Ivetriedthat, is what led me to Wealth Affiliate, so I would REALLY like to meet him to thank him in person.

Thanks for sharing those pics Eddy!

Eddy (with a Y),
This was a very inspiring thing to read! I could barely sit still as I was telling my husband about the incentives, and of course about the potential earnings! I am getting really excited to get in depth with WA! Thanks for sharing and I hope that myself and my husband get to meet you in Vegas one day real soon!
Thanks,
Jimmie

Hey, great that you shared the experience! I can only imagine how developmental this was for you. Can I suggest something to improve WA? I would love to see a comprehensive encyclopedia of plugins. I mean with normal people people speak. I usually read about a potential new plugin and search the WA community for it and there's usually not much discussion on it. I figured if there was an example of a plugin and it simply said 1) Yes, its compatible with WA servers 2) It may / may not slow down your site more than most plugins 3) Yes it does / no it doesn't involve coding skills for customization etc etc. A lot of the plugins don't give you this information and I think for many WA users, getting a powerful new plugin can feel like a risky jump in the dark that could lead to a long back-and-forth with WA support. Nice one Eddy!

Hey Nick,

That's something you can share with Kyle or Carson directly. But they really set up WA so you're not using a lot of plugins. Because that's when you start to have conflicts and speed performance issues. It would be exhausting to go through all plugins that are added regularly to determine which are ideal for WA sites.

That's something each site owner needs to test with trial and error. Or use premium themes that have a lot of the plugin functionality already built in which is what I do. At the end of the day, the most important thing on your site that you really want to focus on is your content.

I discuss this here:

Thanks. Is there somewhere I can go to get information on what plugins to expect with certain themes? It may well be there on the theme selector but I've only ever used the one, so I'm not so well travelled in this area. Gunna read that link now. Thanks again for your speedy reply

Hey there Eddy with a "Y", at first I had some serious doubts about WA and Kyle and Carson and even the community, but after doing all my research on google about the whole thing I figured what do I have to lose by trying it. I mean initially it started as a free starter membership.
Now after reading your blog, I am finally convinced that this online business thing is 100% real and not just another scam so I guess I owe you a load of gratitude.
I actually feel better than before about doing this now and with some hard work and persistency, I am confident that it will all finally pay off.
You guys in the community are awesome!

You got me there. Lol. When I read your title, I stopped for a moment and began to doubt. My curiosity made me open and read your blog. Thanks, Eddy! It's great to know how real everyone is in this community. And I'm glad you emphasized your name with a Y. You're so "Eddyeasty!"

LOL, I'm glad it caused you to read the article. At least any of your doubts are now put to rest. And I always have to reinforce the Eddy with a y otherwise people just spell it the "wrong" way. lol
