Soaring at a New Pace

Last Update: June 02, 2018

WHEN I FINALLY FOUND MY PLACE IN LIFE.

When I first joined Wealthy Affiliate in September of 2016, I didn't take it as serious as I do now. Why? Maybe it was because I didn't have the faith in this company that I do now. I can so relate to the newbies when they say they're overwhelmed and confused. I was there, too---we all were! When just starting out, the potential you can achieve is slightly hindered, delaying success. Why can't we just see this golden opportunity?


CONSISTANCY.

Back then, I wasn't taking my business as serious as I am now. I was not very consistant, logging in every few days or so. It wasn't until I began to really delve into the training and start getting familiar with the people, that things began to spark. It's all about how much effort, passion and energy you put into your business---and depending on that alone, has everything to do with the amount of time it will take you to succeed!

NOW IS THE TIME!

Looking back, I now know that my journey has been more up than down, and now I'm on the mission of my life to build my best business ever --- my Personal Case Study site. I feel that I'M FINALLY SOARING AT A NEW PACE, and that everything is amazingly falling into place! After all, a steady pace is great!

GET SERIOUS ABOUT THE FUTURE!

I feel as though I've only really been working at WA for about a year, as I took a 5-month leave due to an injury. So, I started back in September of last year, full force and have continued to look forward to an incredible future!


I WILL BE AROUND FOR THE LONG HAUL.

Although I will continue to do my best at helping others and posting blogs when I return from my vacation, I will be concentrating FULL-TIME on my Personal Case Study. (Pretty much how I'm working now). I'm so excited at the endless possibilities it will bring to my life and the lives of others, that I can hardly stand it! Ha ha! I will blog about my progress with each step, as I've done so far. All my Case Study posts are on my wall if you would like to follow along!

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE AMAZING SUPPORT AND CONFIDENCE YOU HAVE SHOWN ME. I LOVE YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH! xoxo

Blessed? Absolutely!

PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE TO SPREAD THE LOVE! Thanks!

Erin :)!

Erin,

I'm so excited for you.

Your project sounds very interesting and worthy of your time.

I'm at the beginning of my journey and my focus has been building trust with my audience. My goal is to be an Ambassador at the end of my first year.

I am plugging along with my lessons as I find topics of interest to add to my website. However, i learned something new in the What is a Niche? live training. That a niche is the individual.

I'm learning to bond with my audience by bonding with the WA community and getting past the focus being about money for now. I commented on my new goal in my recent post. I'm still a diamond in the rough and have a lot to learn about being personal with my audience. The best way to do that is to spread my wings here with the WA community.

Erin, I wish you good luck in your recent endeavor. I will check in on your progress, because I have enjoyed your posts.

All the Best,

Louisa

I saw your post, and I thought, "She's still here?!?!" I thought you were in Aruba already!

I've accepted that sometimes my path will be crooked with debris, while other times, the path will be nothing but a smooth pavement. It's all part of my journey, and I believe I'm exactly where I need to be at exactly the right time. Whatever I need to do for my business and self-development will happen at just the right time.

Now...go on and get outta here, Erin!!!

Still here, Veronica! Ha ha. I had the picnic today and will go away next week. :)! Your words are very wise, my dear! It's all about timing. There are 2 kinds of timing. Our timing and God's timing--and ours doesn't count! :)!

Thanks for this post Erin!

When I first started here with WA, I was overwhelmed with all the different aspects of the platform which resulted in me just being part of this community but not taking action.

It's different now.

Thanks for your inspiring post. It serves as a reminder for everyone.

Enjoy your break!

Soz to hear about your injury, Erin! :(

But at least you're now making headway with WA. You find the more work you put into your site, the easier it gets to write content.

Then before you know it, you have 100 posts. :)

Spread those wings, BABY! LOL

Thanks for pulling us up with you Erin ! What you said about newbies is true. That is especially for folks who have very small or no background in this field. So persistence has two destinations. The right place and the wrong place. Persistence will always end at the right place if the beginnings and purpose are real and true. We end up at the wrong place if the purpose or goal is wrong to begin with. We had to know somehow at the outset what WA was and is all about. The collective confidence in members is what pulled me through to decide to give this a try and the 'we will see'
attitude.

I cannot claim that I see total clarity yet with what lies ahead in WA for me. My Navy background got me grounded on standards, big tech libraries and all was clear and laid out well. WA's is discover and learn as you move forward. Or perhaps I was not just looking in the right places etc . Ha ha ha.

Thanks for inspiring the weak and the slow . : )

Oh wow, Erin, I love that quote in Grafitti. "Everything has beauty but not everyone can see it". Profound. As is your post, as always.
I'm so happy you found your way in WA... you are an amazing Light. We are all blessed to have you so actively blogging on this platform. THANK YOU for being you.

herinnelson Premium
Your kind words WOW me, Lauren! You were the one who gave me such motivation and made me realize I could do this. You were the one who inspired me enough to make Ambassadorship and then wrote an amazing post to congratulate me! Your post brought tears to my eyes because I feel so connected to you and your precious Mom..maybe because I miss my Mom so much and she would be the one saying all the nice things that you say. Thank you so much--you couldn't imagine how much your positive words mean to me. xoxo
