It's coming along!
I've made it through three of the Certification courses, and I'm working on number 4. I got to lesson 7 and the task is to create a blog post here on WA. So here I am. I have to say, I am enjoying myself immensely on this journey. I've learned so much already and I know there is more good stuff to come. I made the commitment and signed up as a yearly member - I know it's going to take time to learn all there is to learn here (and there's a lot!) and to start making money from my efforts. I've been looking for an online business that was worth investing in for a long time, and I really think that WA is that place. I know that it's not going to happen overnight, and that it will require some real work, time, and effort on my part. But that's okay - I'm not afraid of any of those things.
I really do wish that I was in a position where I didn't have to work full time, but my husband and I are not in that place. So I have to work full-time and contribute to our household income. So, I make time where I have it - early in the morning, before starting work, and then when I get home and get the chores done, I get online and work some more.
One thing that I find distracting is that I still get a lot of spam emails for other types of online business and money-making programs. I find myself clicking on those links and wasting time looking at other programs - which 9.99 times out of 10 are scams. I am working on clicking the little check box next to the email and just deleting them!
One thing I do worry a little about is the size of the niche I chose. My website is healthychihuahuas.com, and I thought it was pretty good. But after doing some research, there are A LOT of sites out there offering information on keeping your Chihuahuas healthy. I'm going to continue to use this website as my learning tool, but once I get through the program, I have some other ideas for niches that I will look into.
All in all, things are progressing well. Like I said, a little slower than I'd like due to lack of time on my part, but I'll get there. It doesn't need to happen overnight, I can be patient.
Good luck to all of my fellow entrepreneurs on WA!
