An Idea on My Tranquil Thursday
So much for my 'Tranquil Thursday'. This is the day I reserve for myself. My morning routine of surfing emails and blogs takes me about an hour or two, then it's off to the wonderland of the internet. Maybe I just sit on my keester contemplating the nature of the universe. Maybe I do nothing at all. Point is that it's my day.
This morning was a little different. As I was taking my shower, highlight of my Thursdays as a rule, I was struck by an idea and I knew I just had to come write about it. I won't be long though, hopefully, as I have a desire to research, well, anything that pops into my muddled mind.
Why are we here at WAU (wealthy affiliate university)? This question has been asked many many times, and answered to many many times. Bottom line, create a business in a myriad of different ways, and WA is the place to be as we begin our journey.
There are so many heavy hitters promoting this or that system of wealth creation, it boggles the mind, at least my muddled mind. Think about it, how did they get to where they are? They had an idea and ran with it, making money along the way.
They write in conventional written media, maybe get interviews in the news or on talk shows. They write in blogs, they write books. These guys are out there promoting two things, the first is their how to methods, and second, themselves.
These folks have become the Subject Matter Experts (SME's) in there craft, and they want to help others achieve success by following a system or blue print. But how did they get there? They found a way to make money. Maybe it's flipping houses, maybe it's stock market strategy, or maybe its other forms of Making Money.
People look to these folks as a resource for information. Why? because over a period of time, these SME's have made a name for themselves. They've done the research, written about and promoted their idea, system, or whatever you wish to call it. They generate excitement through helping others and motivating them to better themselves.
Through their activities of producing and delivering top-notch content, they gain a following, many of whom go on to success. It all starts with the content. In some sense, it doesn't matter the platform chosen to deliver the content. What matters first and foremost is the content.
We've all come to WA looking to create a business. We want to make money, nothing wrong with that all. Kyle and Carson have provided an all encompassing platform for us. Training that can't be rivaled, best hosting anywhere, SEO, classrooms, blog platform, you name it, it's here.
Beyond this, there are training contributions from so many of our marvelous WA'ers, and each training is so enlightening and enriching. If I were to write about all of the members trainings, I would be writing till I was 90, so I'll spare you (and me) this list. I would like to highlight a recent training by one of our Ambassadors, Cassi (@CassiOfTroy), you can find it here:
It would be a disservice to many if I said this was the best I've seen, but it does rank in my top 10 list of favorites. I found this article to be refreshing and highly motivational. Being a visual learner, I found her use of flow charts a great way to get her ideas across. In my mind, I could see her giving this presentation to a live audience.
Sorry if I strayed off topic, but the bottom line is this, become the SME, the Subject Matter Expert. What we say through writing, what we say in social media or videos that we create matters. Through our education in WA, we gain the tools we need. Researching topics in your various niches is the key to providing quality content. Delivering this content consistently is the corner stone of our successes. All of this together helps make you/me/all of us, an authority that folks will come to rely on and return to.
You never can tell where life leads. Might be your niche is something people are so eager to learn more about, that they would attend a lecture on the topic hosted by you. Income. Your business might lead to eBooks in your niche. Income. You might review the latest gadget that people link to thru your review. Income. Social media? Video's? Income potential.
