What Brought You to Wealthy Affiliate?

Last Update: March 03, 2019

We have a global community here at WA that is FILLED with entrepreneurial minded people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

I've had the incredible experience for the last 2 years to meet some of the top WA leaders in Las Vegas at the Super Affiliate Conference. Every man and woman I've met has that genuine quality to them of someone who has worked hard for what they've accomplished.

That's not a coincidence.

From Kyle, Carson, and Jay down to every active member here, the Wealthy Affiliate community helps to mold a certain type of person who thrives here.

Smart, driven, and focused are the qualities I see over and over in our leaders. Not just in some, but in all. And remember, you are who you surround yourself with, right?

So what does that mean for all of us here? it means that we have an INCREDIBLE & very POWERFUL opportunity as a part of this community to learn from and be inspired by one another.

It's not just the training that breeds success, it's the leadership at WA and this thriving community we're all a part of.

So that being said, what brought you to Wealthy Affiliate? I'm all ears.

However we are getting older , especially Scarlett , lol,and the 16 hr days are hard.

Need I say more .......the beauty of Wa is endless but the plus side ,we are able to share ( privacy protected of course) some of our patients journey’s , and what they have taught us , some funny, some sad, but always a message .

I was looking on the internet to work at home but all I came across was scams and nothing else. The one day I open up my email and saw this email from WA and I open it and the rest is history as they say. And now it is coming up on 1-year anniversary.

Congratulations on your fab success and the Vegas trip!

The photos are envy-inducing lol :)

I needed an online job to be able to stay at home with my baby twins. Started with teaching singing and English online; then a spot of dropshipping and THEN I read a WA review.
Checked it out; googled what 'affiliate marketing' meant and decided this was for me.
And a year on - it is, and it always will be :)

Best,
Alenka

Hi Eric

I read and enjoyed your post and the pertinent question you ask, so much so, that I just added an excerpt from my profile which sums up my answer to your question:-

"I am sick and tired of the false promises and lies that seem to haunt the internet so I'm ecstatic to have stumbled upon WA before wasting too much money.

The honesty, openness, generosity when sharing knowledge, in-depth training and general caring of others are but a few of the positive attributes that will keep me here for a long time to come."

Awesome to be a part of this international gathering

Regards
Ron

Initially I wanted to know how to build a simple website.
I wanted to have some tutorial where I am guided step by step…

So, I landed at Nathaniel’s website.. and from there I was redirected to WA.
Initially, I did not want to sign up for any such platform. So I left.
3 weeks later, I decided to give it a try.

At this point, I was already sick and tired of all these upsells, and high ticket platforms…

So after signing up at WA I was really.. almost “paranoid” (if I exaggerate a bit lol).
I said to myself, If I see one slightest sign of any upsell, I am off. Done. Nothing. Gimme my money back. Good bye.
:)

But, fortunately - no upsells.

And there have been small details which made me think that this is a real training platform. Details like f.e. Kyle’s tone of his voice in videos. I felt that this guy is honest.

Also the training material – tons of materials to go through – and nothing was locked :)

Glad to be here ;)

That was one of my favorite aspects of WA as well. Straightforward training that delivers. :)

Thanks so much for sharing, Eric!

I've been involved in the music business for the last 25 years of my life and always wanted to build my small online business empire, so here I am at WA to fulfill my dream.

Wish you smashing success!

I've been working in the corporate sector for my whole career and wanted to see if I could build my own business whilst still working, to help me transition out of the corporate sector into something that is mine. My primary driver was to improve my work life balance so that I could spend more time at home with my little ones. Honestly I just kind of got tired of corporate life and juggling everything. It used to be exciting for me but it's no longer exciting, now it's just tiring. Whilst it is very well paid I do want to transition out.

I was online reviewing a different product, and in one of the comments I saw someone say they were part of WA. I'd never heard of it so I googled and here I am.

I also wanted to test myself to see if I could do this. This is a completely new area for me and I hadn't learnt anything this new since I went to uni several years ago. The challenge has been awesome and fun. I very proudly show my kids my website and they are in awe that I did it. I feel really proud of that and proud that I'm showing my kids that I am actively learning something new and building something for our future.

That is really cool! When they see you putting yourself out there outside of your comfort zone building and learning it takes away that fear for them in the future :) Great story.

I was researching a 'scam' site after wasting 10 mins of life watching 'shiny' stuff. Found a review of the scam, enjoyed the read. The author was Marcus, followed the link to 'A real opportunity' and here I am. Home.

What I know is that WA is a legit, the cheapest web host with a comprehensive online university. At first, I have doubts so I stopped and tried to look for a better platform but after three years I came back and stayed until this time.

Isn’t it cool to come back with that confirmation that this platform is the vehicle you’ve been looking for? Great experience. Thanks for sharing.

It's a fact, WA does not have a piece by piece package but it's all in one price.

I was unable to find a job after leaving the Emergency Department (was injured several times on the job as a clerk) and my husband took up a job offer in a small country town. Our work life balance improved but financially we struggled a bit. The working from home option just made common sense. I found the WA platform and joined up :)

It’s really cool how so many different people can all have similar paths that lead them here. Thank you for sharing that. I’m very familiar with the emergency department myself as a firefighter :)
