What's The Real Secret To Speeding Up Making Money Online?

Last Update: Oct 21, 2016


Okay so you've joined WA and you're excited about this whole online business thing. That's great! You should be.

Maybe you've whipped through the training or plan to do so later. But you have a nagging feeling that some of the successful WA members are holding out. You believe there is some secret sauce that isn't covered in the training which has led to our success.

You think there is probably some way to speed all this up that we're not revealing. Well I guess we can no longer deny it. Are you ready for me to reveal it?

The Secret Revealed!

I'm sorry to play with ya'll like that. But this picture pretty much sums up the conversations some of the successful members have privately. And we're not laughing at ya'll.

It's just funny because people really believe that somehow we're not following the training laid out here. The reality is we are. You know what's really setting us apart from everyone else.

1. We're not willing to give up!

2. We're not afraid to fail.

3. We have all experienced failure and will continue to do so.

4. We're patient enough to see the process through until we do succeed.

5. We use all the resources here at WA to get help.

6. We follow and apply the training.

So that's really the secret to success with this business. You can keep asking different members hoping that there is going to be some magical technique or button. But all of the successful guys and gals I know are pretty much applying what is taught here.


Be wary of the false WA prophets that slip into this community. Too often I've heard stories of members that have joined WA to peddle their crappy shinny new objects. It's easy to spot these folks because they're always claiming they have some secret technique that will speed up things with little work. They make outrageous claims about the results. But they're always allusive about this magical system.

Don't let your lack of patience or desperation misguide you. I know a lot of us like to think the internet is about speed and convenience. But when it comes to building a successful online business there are no short cuts. It's a slow grind. But if you follow the training, ask questions and stay patient, you'll eventually experience success.

So do me and some of the other more successful members a favor, stop asking for our secrets. We don't have any. We're just applying what is being taught here.

If you need help navigating that, we're here for ya.

I'd like to end this by apologizing to anyone that was offended or disappointed by this post. Those of you who have read my other posts are aware I'm notorious for keeping it real. I want you guys to succeed. And sometimes that requires a little tough love.

So let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Any comments or questions about what my secret will be ignored. lol

Thanks for reading,

Eddy with a y

I never asked you about speeding up the process, I just asked you to look at my site and boy did you give it to me, it was like back to the drawing board, Lol. Anyhow Eddy, it's nice to see another great sensible post that I will gladly share. Thanks for all you help and support. :)

Lol. You make me sound like a hard ass Evelyn. Any feedback I provide is out of love. So hopefully you saw it that way. Lol

Well you were brutally honest, anyone who wants good advice needs to be told the truth, otherwise it's a waste of time. :) My feelings were not hurt, I just wanted to fix what I needed to fix, no harm, no foul.

True Evelyn

Ooooh wow Eddy, soooo glad you wrote this.

Reading this post should be a requirement for all new members who arrive at WA.

Would save the wrong ones from signing up ... and help keep the smart ones focusing on the training and NOT breezing through it but actually FOLLOWING the instructions.

Imagine that ... having to follow instructions just so I can succeed. Nzzzz ... really? ;-))

LMAO Trish. I like your style and I totally agree with you about this being a requirement. Maybe Kyle and Carson will share this one as well. They share some of my other articles with newbies. Thanks for chiming in.

I think many people end up being victims of fancy pants sales pages from past products they have purchased which promised things such as:

* cash cows
* automated ATM's
* automated ATM cash cow machines
* private beaches
* fast cars, houses, boats etc.

So, when they land here at WA, I think they subconsciously think this minutia of false claims are going to happen.

Thanks Eddy for helping me setting the record straight!

P.S. Attached images for visual stimulation and proof that there is some 'cray cray' products out there.

One is from a popular product and the other is me and Eddy in WA Vegas.. ;)


That's a very valid point Jay! It's almost like some people can't shake off the stank of the other crap they've heard online.

Damn they got a good picture of us Jay! LMAO.

But I prefer the other one here: instead.

See you in a few months.

One thing I have noticed with most of the successful guys here is that the majority of them with the exception of Colton ( the only person who is successful but doesn't fall into this category) is that they all joined Wealthy Affiliate BEFORE 2014.

Proving that it will take awhile before you can create a full-time business. I mean even 2014 was awhile back now.

Yeah any business takes a time to build and grow. But it doesn't imply if you joined after 2014 there aren't successful people because there are. It's really just about applying the principles, being consistent and being patient.

Yeah, I understand that. In fact, I noticed a lot of successful people that joined along with me last year. It's just something I have noticed among the successful people you hear about when you first join WA.

I am not at the full-time income but I have seen quite a bit of success myself from just being here 16 months.

Exactly Anthony. I just wanted to make that clear just in case some people think that somehow they joined the party late. lol

It is nerve-racking to wait for the success and put so much hard work without getting anything back but I just took the truth as it is and just kept working. Not from the very beginning, though, I expected to make my first money faster but I will repeat the same sentence as many people said: hard and consistent work pays off!

Today, less than for 4 months from when my website is live, I made my first sale! Commission from this one product is less than $1 but I made the stepping point.

Thanks for a down to earth and honest post!

You're welcome Jolita. And the thing about success is that is it's like a snowball rolling down the hill. It takes time for it to build up momentum and get bigger. But too often people give up too quickly before seeing that. I'm glad you didn't. I applaud you for celebrating the smallest wins because that's how it starts. Keep it up.

The only thing I ever wonder about is why some people are so much better at writing and making cool looking sites than I am. THAT isn't really in the training. IF it is I ain't found it. But getting the posts and pages to rank is really where it's at and that is done by following the training and grinding out the content.

Writing is like any other skill. The more you work at it the better you get. Read my article about writing: and you can learn how to get better at it. Making a site look pretty is a simple matter of picking the right themes and tools. I recently reviewed the ones I used on my blog here moreblogging.com. So check them out.

Hey Eddy (with a y),
I always love your pragmatic approach to this IM thing! You have always told it like it is and it is a shame that the message doesn't sink in with people.

Any business will take time to develop. My window washing business, which isn't bricks and mortar, but relies more and more on internet marketing, is a case in point. I have a funky new website, thanks to WA, I market it on a number of service platforms here is Australia, and I have to hit the pavement and knock on doors.

There is no magic solution to it; just work, work and more work. Talking to people, networking and then actually washing some windows, allows the business to grow organically.

Message to anyone: If you are offended by Eddy's straight talking approach, then as the saying goes - If it is too hot in the kitchen,....

Thank you so much for you post today, Eddy. Another reason why this place is so amazing.

Have a great weekend,


Thanks for the kind words Duncan and the reaffirmation. Clearly you get this and why you'll experience success if you haven't already.

I totally loved your post, Eddy, keeping it real and telling the truth is what we all need from time to time.

A little reminder and cuff around the ear for being lazy, not doing the training and being distracted by these shiny objects held out by scammers, something I was guilty of till I met good people like yourself, who tell the truth. Thanks, Eddy:-))Steph

Thanks Steph. I'm glad you were able to see the light.

Hey great to see you on here. I think I signed up under one of you advertising posts. It's been about 7 months ago, but I remember your picture and your honesty. Which is why I decided to join. Great post by the way. Success only comes from hard work, and takes a while to get there. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Jeremy. It's great to hear from ya.

I looked for ya for a while, never could find ya. I figured you'd pop up sooner or later. Have a great weekend.

I am always here and a private message away. Or just search for my name. Lol

Ya I couldn't remember your name, but I did recognize your pic. Lol

So what really is your secret Eddy? Lol

Thanks for the great advice, I was very risk-averse and afraid of failures until I joined WA. I've learned that a failure is totally normal, just another step towards success. And successful people like yourself still use all the resources & help from others available here to move forward. It's good for me to be reminded of that. Thanks for the great post!


You got jokes Ray? Lol. Failure is a necessary ingredient to success. So it's something we all have to be comfortable with because it does bring you closer. So I'm glad you learned that.

Failure is a necessary ingredient to success. That's a profound statement Eddy, so I Googled it. A to Z Quotes attributes this quote to a guy named Bran Ferren.

... an American technologist, artist, architectural designer, vehicle designer, engineer, lighting and sound designer, visual effects artist, scientist, lecturer, photographer, entrepreneur, and inventor. Ferren is the former President of Research and Development of Walt Disney.

You keep good company Eddy.
