Hello WA Friends
On the 18th April I celebrated my 3rd year anniversary at Wealthy Affiliate.
Things haven't always gone smoothly - oh what an understatement - but this has nothing to do with WA but my own life getting in the way.
I've been here for three years because I don't think there is a better place to belong for learning all there is to learn about internet marketing. More than that though is the wonderful support that comes with being a member at Wealthy Affiliate.
And I don't mean just support with websites, themes, widgets and all that geeky stuff! I mean support across the board. I have made some great friends here who have seen me through some 'sticky' times and I shall be forever grateful - You know who you are:)
While I'm in this 'chatty' mood I thought I'd say a word about perserverence - Oh Yes, the P word.
I've noticed a few posts, comments etc asking about how long it takes to succeed, what exactly is needed to succeed, etc, etc, etc.
I think it would be true to say if you asked 50 people or even 500 people they would all have a different answer but the 'P' word would probably feature in most of them.
I am a good example of the 'P' Word.
Three years down the line and now I've started to earn a living from everything I've learnt at Wealthy Affiliate. Believe me, this would have come much quicker if I'd stuck at it in the beginning but 'shiny object syndrome' has been a weakness and led me off the straight and narrow.
So, I feel a little bit of an old hand now with some experience under my belt.
Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need to succeed with your online business but what it can't do is 'do it for you'. That has to come from you. If you give up, that's not WA's fault. Your success could be just around the corner.
There are so many people here who are so happy to lend a hand so take advantage of this wonderful community - Oh, and don't forget to help out when you can - it's a great feeling.
Here's to the next 3 years - Cheers
