Welcome to all the new members who have taken advantage of the incredible Wealthy Affiliate black Friday offer. It's a shame such a wonderful opportunity as such a bleak name but there you go, it's probably because I'm a European.

There is nothing special about a full-time Internet marketer. They go to work just like anybody else, but usually they don't leave the house to get to their office.

All the tools and training are laid out here for you to learn from. You might not realize if you're new here that the best part of Wealthy Affiliate's is the members - they rock!

The people who succeed always interact with the community because we are more than a community we are a family. There are many people here who have shared their life stories and success stories on these pages.

Some of those stories are heartbreaking, some are inspirational, some are amusing and some are tragic. Like life, everything is here, from every corner of the globe.

Some people learn fast and some people learn slow. None of these factors matter. The fact is we're stronger in Wealthy Affiliate's because the members feel confident enough to express their pain, their difficulties and also share their joy.

What really does matter is the fact we've taken the step to learn the skills we need to build a successful business. The road forward will not be without its challenges, no matter how much you already know, there will be times when you will want to tear your hair out and throw your computer out of the window.Some of you will, but DON'T GIVE UP.

We have all been there, and will be again.When that happens we are standing right behind you, to prop you up and believe me there are more of us than there are you, - so together we can do it.

To those of you who have been here a while and have upgraded you have a year to make it without having to worry about finding money for your subscription. You know what a fantastic opportunity the Wealthy Affiliate Black Friday offer is.It does not take a year look at this fantastic post from Evelyn (You go girl)

Thank you Catherine for an inspirational post. Even without the Black Friday special the WA offer is of exceptional value and one of the best investments one could ever make. We took this investment yesterday and absolutely know that we are in the right place here with such a wonderful and supportive family.

Have a great weekend:))

Hi - I am from NZ and had never heard of 'Black Friday' befoe and thought it sounded like a pretty awful name. I googled and they say that for retailers its because they start to go from losing money in the red to making good profits over the next month or two. Just some info

Thank you Kat. So, it's just a copy that link and go paste it where ever you want?

That simple and you can legally do that on any post or video here, so in fact you don't even have to create your own content use the ideas of great posts to say this is great and show n in this post ............... and guess what happened in WA a few days I learned that branding was so important because I saw this post, and when I looked again there was this training as well ...............
You get the idea .

I wish I could upgrade to yearly, wouldn't have to stress about it month to month. But in due time, I am here and will do whatever I have to do to make that monthly payment.
Thank you for the inspiring words as always Catherine....xx
