If You Want To Kill A Big Dream Tell It To A Small Minded Individual
This will be somewhat of a lame post as I haven't learned a huge amount yet, but I have to say I am extremely proud of myself! I have been trying to work toward financial freedom for years and have never felt closer than here at WA.
Bit About Me
I won't go into much detail about myself as I'll post my site soon and you can check it out in full. But to explain how excited I am, I have to share a bit..try not to fall asleep ;)
As a kid I was enrolled in a private school which for all of elementary I loved, heck even part of middle school was great! But as I got a little older it became very apparent these kids' families were very wealthy, and I..well..was not. The school was expensive, but the church I went to covered most the cost so it was affordable for my parents. As previously mentioned, the early years were great and I had a lot of friends. Then came late junior high and high school..
As these kids' got older they started to exclude me, and I couldn't see why. I was a nice guy in my opinion and never changed anything when they all started to exclude me. One day it clicked, because I couldn't afford the newest stuff or in high school couldn't afford spring break out of state.. I failed to be as relevant and many of them became distant.
I'm sure most would assume this hurt me and broke my heart. In all honesty it did, but I realized that wasn't what hurt most. What really bothered me was people could go to work giving their all, going above and beyond likely parents did, and still..you could struggle. I wanted better for myself and my future kids'( not that I doubted my parents did everything they could), I wanted to be able to afford my hobbies and vacations. If you work hard you deserve that right?
Wealthy Affiliate Changed Everything For Me
After my childhood I manifested a dream, I wanted to make sure I had everything myself or my family ever needed and have extra money to get our reasonable wants as well! I tried college, got a career..the usual. The money was ok, but I wasn't happy and I gave all my energy every day for people who didn't appreciate me anymore than the guy who slacked off. This is when I knew I had to start something of my own, something I could take pride in and know all my energy was going towards MY business. To save time and your eye balls from hurting.. I tried many things, wasted a lot of money and got nowhere..
Well that was until I found this wonderful training and community, you all have revamped my confidence x10! I feel like everything falls in to place here for me, it feels right..like I was meant to find this platform and the amazing community that we have here. I am obsessed with working on my sites and content here! It's almost 5 a.m. I can barely see straight, but I couldn't sleep so this was my first thought.
The thing that sparked this whole post was as soon as I hopped on I had a message on my screen, my site has finally been indexed by Google! But that's just the start, if you can't tell from reading this so far I plan on making a full time income with my own business here at WA! As of now, I'm plugging away at site giving every moment I have to growing my business.
