Life Happens

Last Update: June 19, 2016

I started WA about a year ago now. I was so excited when I first found this site, but life happened. I had so much going on that I couldn't focus on what I was even doing here in the first place.

I quit WA and focused on what needed to be taken care of at the time and got through the BS. I didn't quit WA because I didn't believe in it, but because of my personal issues.

Along with my real life problems I couldn't focus on building my business. I didn't make a $1 online and I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong when it really was because I wasn't doing anything!

So yeah, I quit WA but I knew I would come back.

Even though I put my online business on pause and came across all these real world problems I always thought about internet marketing and how it was going to get me to where I wanted to be in life. I then decided to start all over. I signed back up with WA and did the 30 day workshop again.

While I was doing the tasks from the beginning I started to realize what my mistakes were and it just did nothing but motivate me! My website has been up for under a month now, but I am confident that it will do wonders for me.

I'm going to be away from the internet for another month but I will be back to continue my journey to online success. So to all of you out there that are having a hard time doing this business online, hang in there and DO NOT give up! I'll be back to share my success, cheers!

UPDATE: JUN2016

I completely forgot about this post and I don't even think I knew what I was saying here. Well, fast-forward to 2016 and I'm glad I have better things to talk about than what was said in this post.

So from the date I wrote this post (NOV2014) to now (JUN2016) I can finally say that I work from home full-time. I traded in all the stressful "jobs" in my life and I now run a solid work from home business.

If I can do it in that little time, I know you guys can too!

Hi John,

It's a constant struggle. Since we only have 24 hours in each day, we have to prioritize, and do the things that have to be done first.
Then we can take whatever time is left each day, or each week and do what we want with it.

This last week or so I have been watching the baseball playoffs, and now the World Series. I am getting refreshed. And, it is needed. But, I will get back to spending hours a day on building my website, and all the training that is necessary, very soon.

I wish you much success.
Mike

Yea, this sounds exactly like me. I started WA full of gusto but life happened. Kids in school, money got tight, I kept writing but felt I may be going crazy with the constant content creation. Meanwhile life is happening, bills come due, things need taken care of and my content creation was taking valuable time up. I fell behind, became distracted and panicked thinking my time was wasted when I could have been moving forward on something that would better my life. This is the real world and the real world doesn't care if you're writing on a tree or a writing platform. That's my thinking, may be wrong but its a wakeup call for me. I've never been a quitter but panick when wasting valuable time that I need to keep moving forward. Its good you found what works for you.

I am in the same boat. I started in 2014 but I had to quit because of the lack of knowledge I had. I wasn't making any money & couldn't afford to keep going.

Hi John,

So what was it you found yourself doing wrong, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks,

Sorry for the later reply, I didn't see this. I already forgot about this post, this is sooooo 1990 Pete! lol. Now what I found doing wrong? I wasn't following the training! Once I started to listen to EVERYTHING that was taught here, that's when I started to see results. I will update this post as well, it doesn't even make sense!

Haha no worries John! Only 2 days late :)

Thanks for responding though. I was just really curious!

By the way, if you don't mind taking a brief look at my website affiliate-sale.com, and give me any feedback on what you think, or how to improve my website, I'd be so grateful!!

not a problem. John is on his way to look at Pete's site...

John's back....
One big thing you NEED to do is make your font bigger. If your theme doesn't allow you to do it (like mine), you might have to mess with the code. Try and fix this and let me know if you find a way to do this. If you need help with coding, let me know. BTW, thanks for that email in the header trick!

okay! haha yeah sure not a prob.. Looks like you got something to your advantage.. by making the font bigger, do you mean with every page/post, within the menu's or what?

Thanks for taking a look! Also, what do you think of the overall layout and structure of the homepage.. do you think it's okay?

You need to make the fonts bigger everything, most especially within your posts, because that's what people will be reading. If I was to go to your site and I couldn't read it I would automatically look for something else and that's what everyone else would do too. Unless of course they are farsighted. As for your homepage, I would get rid of the pic of the site rubix thing. It would look better without it and it would look more professional. Worry more about the content and giving your readers value. The homepage is cool and all, but it is not a big deal. I used to worry a lot about it too, but I realized I was wasting too much time trying to make things nice n pretty. Looking good so far though Peter Pan!

I'm sorry. Your email probably got lost in all the mails coming from WA and WSS. I turned off the messages I was getting from each because I was missing important emails. Getting as many as 70 emails a day from both of these. Very easy to overlook ones I should be answering.

I don't know what to look for. If you give me at least part of your email address or the subject line I will do a search and find that email. It should still be there. Else try resending that email. I will look for it.

Good for you. Do not give up. This is a long term commitment. It took us about five months before we got our first sale. We started with WA in September, 2009. We are averaging about 30 or more sales a month and growing. We are expanding what we are doing by trying to get into new niche markets. I wish you all the best on what the future will bring for you.

I totally understand where you're coming from... I currently find myself in the midst of being hijacked by life... Other things that need to be addressed before I can put 100% of my attention back on my tasks here at WA. Focus on your dreams and you will succeed!
