WA Helps Me Make 5 Figure Income in 2019 & 2020!
Last Update: Feb 1, 2022
Yes, I Finally Quit My C-level Job!
I know I've not been creating blog post inside Wealthy Affiliate for a long time and today, I've decided to write this blog post and inform you guys that I finally quit my C-level job to focus on building my blog business.
In this post, I'll be sharing with you how I managed to do so even though I didn't manage to sell 300 Wealthy Affiliate premium memberships.
Before I share with you how I acheived my 5 figure income in both 2019 & 2020, let me first share with you a little about myself, my job and also what makes me decided to continue my affiliate marketing journey with Wealthy Affiliate.
My Career History
Since graduated from a professional course, like others, I started to get a 9 to 5 job, working for various companies. Throughout my career, I'm grateful to always met the expectation of my superiors.
However, there's no job that can hold me back for long as I get bored easily especially when there's a lack of learning opportunities. Oh ya, I feed on knowledge.
Therefore, I started to explore entrepreneurship by joining an existing marketing firm as partner and also started my own spa business. Both ventures did not last long and I re-joined the employment market to buy more time for my family.
I was only given a lower level position that did not commensurate with my experience neither does it aligned with my previous income. However, since I opted for the change, I acceped the pay cut and started my new career from scratch.
Within 2 years I was promoted as a General Manager. It was real hard work and many times I worked until wee hours, with only 1 purpose, that's to excel.
The General Manager Position Landed Me With Wealthy Affiliate
The opportunity that landed me with Wealthy Affiliate came after one year I was promoted as General Manager.
You must be wondering why am I willing to put in extra effort to learn affiliate marketing using after-office hours when I was already earning an income that almost 90% of the people were not able to achieve.
Look, when I had a double leap of income growth, rather than spending money on luxury items, I decided to use this lifetime opportunity investing in education that can bring me closer to my work-home dream. It was my dream of achieving time and financial freedom that landed me with Wealthy Affiliate.
I spent money to improve my internet marketing skill and also got myself a MBA degree within that few years. Both has helped me excel in my career and achieving my dream.
I Was Further Promoted To Chief Operating Officer
While I was about to quit my GM job after some time to focus on building my blog business, I was again given the opportunity to take up a C-level position in the same company. That was a very tempting offer and therefore I decided to work for another 2 years.
While I was in this C-level position, I continue to provide FREE social media, SEO & copywriting assistance to my working mates and this built my reputation as a person with great internet marketing skill.
I am grateful that I did not give up my dream and continue to learn from Wealthy Affiliate even though it was at a slower pace due to heavy workload.
Here's How I Make 5 Figure Income Learning From Wealthy Affiliate
I found more passion in writing rather than continuing with my employment, therefore decided to quit my C-level job. Many advised me against making such drastic decision but I never hesitated as deep down inside me, I knew this day must come so I can focus on my journey to achieve financial and time freedom.
It was indeed a tough decision but the sweetest ever. And MIRACLES happen!
Immediately after I released the news of quitting, I was offered a few contracts to provide digital marketing & branding services to small businesses that I've helped during my time as GM and COO.
That was when I realized apparently I've build a good reputation for myself throughout my career.
Imagine if I didn't learn from Wealthy Affiliate nor am I willing to do more to help others while enjoying a great career & stable income, will I be able to achieve 5 figure income immediately after I quit my job?
That's not possible right? If I didn't learn from Wealthy Affiliate, I won't acquire the knowledge nor skills to help people with my internet marketing skill.
This is delayed gratification, and yes, it is the sweetest!
Ok, these new contracts are the ones that helped me make 5 figure income in 2019 and 2020. Yes, a lot of time and hard work involved and yet is worth it.
Conclusion To My 5 Figure Income

Wow, what a journey you have taken! Congratulations on all of your achievements - including keeping your values in place whilst being mistreated, that is exceptionally tough!
Wishing you every success as you go from strength to strength.
Thank you Louise for your kind wishes. I appreciate a lot. I hope one day I too can ranked Top 50 in WA, just like you.

Florence you,make me cry
And I am very happy you made it
Very inspiring for all of us
Thank you for sharing
You make us all very proud
I am glad that my sharing inspire you. Seriously, I really believe continuous learning and sharing without reservation can bring in much more returns that blindly pursuing for success. I wish all the best to you too.
Congratulations Florence! I can definitely relate to your increased income. Many members of WA do not realize we can make good money by just freelancing the skills of SEO and content writing that we learn here at WA.
I too I am making good money but more so from endeavors that are not relevant to affiliate marketing but are associated with what I have learned here. However I am also making good money in affiliate marketing too.
Like I have said. Think outside of the box when finding ways to make money with what you learn here at WA. The training here offers us many ways to earn, not just through affiliate marketing. All the best to you in the years to come.
That's so true. End of the day, what we are learning here is only the foundation that can help us make money. But in order excel and make more, innovation and personal network plays important role.
Congratulations Florence! So neat to read what you shared here -very inspiring. All the best of success.
Glad that this post inspire you. When I started writing, I was so worried that this content might not be useful. However I still write with the hope that someone might need it. Thanks again!
Congratulations and well done.
How amazing is that. WOW
Wishing you all the best in continuing to make it happen
This is very inspiring. If more people focused like you did, the world would be improving for sure. I wish you great success in your future endeavors as well.

Well done Florence, you are certainly an inspiration to all the new and not so new members.
I was going to say I wish you success but you have already achieved success, and it doesn't have to be in monetary terms.
Onwards and upwards and perhaps we will meet up next year in Vegas.
Enjoy your Thursday evening.
I would love to meet you in Vegas. That's my goal for this year and I am working hard toward achieving this goal.
Ever onwards and upwards Florence.
Have an awesome evening.
