My name is Kathy and I'm very excited about becoming a member with Wealthy Affiliate! I've always wanted to have my own business, it's something I've always been passionate about. My story is probably very similar to many of you. Several years ago I tried to make this affiliate marketing business work but was unsuccessful. I tried everything invested over $10k dollars and with no real direction I failed. However, here I am again because I believe that having knowledge is power in any business. I came across Wealthy Affiliate because I was looking for reviews on one of the affiliate marketing sites I joined. Needless to say Kyle didn't give it very good reviews. I thought, "Oh know here I go again!" Then I thought, "I need help!" I had a good feeling about joining Wealthy Affiliate when I started receiving e-mails from Kyle giving me "free" helpful information on what steps to take to get started. I felt like this was someone who genuinely wanted to help and knew the pitfalls to avoid. I was let go from my position as an Internet Manager last week. I share this not because I'm looking for sympathy, the exact opposite. It was a blessing in disguise! knew I was not working in an environment that was right for me and most importantly I learned that I didn't have a "passion" for what I was doing. I just invested in the Premium Membership with Wealthy Affiliate and I'm excited to get started on what I feel is a gateway to something life changing!
