Can you make money at Wealthy Affiliate? My first $100 month proves you can!

Last Update: June 04, 2018

So can you make money at Wealthy Affiliate?

This is a question many people ask when they first join and I'm here to tell you that

"Yes, you definitely can".

In May, I had my first $100 month and am really excited as my income from Wealthy Affiliate has gone up over the last 3 months.

Now this may not seem like a lot to some people as I know there are many people here making a lot more each day than I have this last month; but to me, it is confirmation that everything is heading in the right direction.

$100 is a milestone for me and I'm encouraged to see that the income stream is on the up. Things take time here, that is a given and should be understood by all newbies and more established members alike.

Patience, consistency and a never-give-up attitude are necessary to see the rewards of hard work in any business.

I am thankful that I found WA in the first place, and always grateful for the inspiration and help offered by the wonderful community here. Thank you.


I am also excited because in the last month I have not been able to devote as much time as I would like to my WA business due to other personal factors, but I'm back now and on track and ready to expand my business exponentially.


Good luck to you all. I hope this inspires other people to show that income is possible with dedication and hard work.

Have a wonderful day everyone and I'm looking forward to things getting better and better.

Gail

It is good to see this, I started my training but have been away for a couple weeks do to dealing with injuries from an accident but this gives me hope. Time to get back in the saddle and work on finishing up my training. I may have to advertise WA while working on my niche idea. Thanks

Hi Lesley
There are always times when 'real life' gets in the way, but the trick is to keep going and be consistent. You can succeed at this!

Good on you Gail. A very inspiring look at the 'Slow and steady' approach. I totally agree with you. I am not yet earning any money, as I am still training, but you are an inspiration to me. I look forward to your future posts when you are doubling your income every month. Well done and thanks.

What's interesting, Gail,is that so many people who work full-time scramble just to get an extra $1 raise!

Well done, Gail!!!

Hey, $100 is a great milestone! You can now scale up the $100 a month to anything now. I still have yet to reach $100 a month, but whenever I reach it, my next goal will definitely be $1,000 a month and then higher from there.

Congratulations Gail! It is tremendously inspiring to hear the good news! I am a newbie that is discouraged. With that said, I am determined and committed to Wealthy Affiliate! I am an old fart that has seen many fads and business ventures that failed, but with Wealthy Affiliate, I am 100% convinced that this is a gold mine to be uncovered! I sincerely appreciate your post and wish you the best of success in your business venture! there are many skills I lack, yet I look forward to learning and using every resource available here to ensure my own success! I look forward to your future posts as I am now following you! ROCK ON!!!
Reply
GailLowe Premium
Thanks William. Many people would call me an old fart too, so don't worry about that! And there are many other things that I'm sure they call me behind my back too, but that never worried me either! LOL.
Skills are just things that we need to learn, and there are very few skills required for this business that cannot be learned as long as you are committed (to the business that is, not to an insane asylum!) :)
All I've done is follow the training and stay positive - occasionally I've become frustrated and I've definitely been impatient. I think I would be lying if I didn't want things to move faster, but I do appreciate that time is a variable in this business that needs to be factored in.
If there's anything I can do to help, just ask.
Have a great day.
Old farts rule! :)
