Don't Focus On The Finish Line!

Last Update: October 24, 2016

This is so true in everything in life. But in our case I think it describes our journey within Wealthy Affiliate pretty accurately.

I hear so many newbies asking how much money they're going to make in the first 2 or 6 months. I understand their curiosity, I think I had the same questions 5 years ago when I first joined W.A.

You WILL make money if you learn well and apply the lessons that you are learning to your website. DON'T WORRY! WITH DEDICATION IT WILL HAPPEN. You will be writing your own pay check according to your efforts.

BUT the most important thing is that you enjoy the journey. This is such an amazing platform with the best resources on the net and the most wonderful community, that you can enjoy every minute of learning and grow intellectually and socially at the same time.

So the next time you're asked "How much money am I going to make?" then point them over here :)

ENJOY!!

With Love, Hannah

Thanks for sharing this Hani. Sometimes I'm guilty of focusing too much on the finish line. It's ridiculous because any worthwhile project takes time, and it's the same with building an online business.

Yes, you're right. We tend to think that because it's online it needs to work miraculously LOL!!

I know just what you mean Hannah. I have been with WA since June of 2016, and I have yet to get to the finish line as you mildly put it, and during that time I can feel the two websites that I am still working on is slowly on their way of making progress. I must be doing all the right things with all the support I am getting. Now it is just a matter of time before I see any results.

Hi Hani,
Wow, you've been here almost 2 years longer than ME ! Hey great to see somebody seasoned. I like your blog because it teaches patience. I've only had some mild success with my DJ site but success non-the-less. I'll take it. Now, on to bootcamp with the W.A. site. It is pretty much built but I need to go through more lessons to promote it. I have 2 sites waiting for me to work on with selling through stores like Amazon with stereo equipment. Wish me luck...........Scotty B ♫
