September 10th, 2018 was the official 13th Birthday of Wealthy Affiliate! It almost feels surreal that it has been this long already, the years truly do fly by.This is somewhat of a milestone for WA as a business, but more importantly as a platform and a community. We have officially hit our "teenage years" in business and to be honest, I couldn't have predicted where Wealthy Affiliate is today, nor can I predict what it will look like in the future. That is actually the most exciting part abou

Sometimes we can lock ourselves out of opportunity by thinking that it is a finite thing. Those that are yet to experience the true opportunity within the online world have a tough time really understaning the scope of what the "Internet" opportunity represents for all of us.Not only that, how even a playing field we are all on. Once upon a moon (not too long ago), you needed to understand technology, you needed to understand how to code, and you needed to have a significant amount of time/mone

There is the tendency when starting something new to try to perfect what you are doing. On paper this may sound like a great idea, but in the real world of applied knowledge it can be problematic. I want to explain why "perfectionism" can be one of the leading causes of failure in business and how you can cure your perfectionist mindset if this is what you are suffering from.I am going to explain the top issues with perfectionism and hopefully help you avoid these moving forward.Issue #1: Perfe

People have this inherent concern that their niche is too narrow or specific and they are going to run out of content ideas or potential if they are too specific. Anyone that is successful online knows that this is not the case and I can tell people until my voice box is gone that there is unlimited potential in any niche idea, but it doesn't make sense until I show real examples.So here I am today. I am going to give you a real example of a niche that is seemingly VERY specific, that started o

That is a question I would like to pose to you. Have you ever given this any thought, or did you just assume that because others are using Kleenex and that you are using it, that is the only and best way of doing it.Well, not the only, I have a 5-year old and she tends to think that using her sleeve is an effective way of blowing her nose. I know, gross right?Although myself, I haven't personally questioned the idea of how to blow my nose and what the most effective approach is. I do question

Let me take you back 18 years. I sat there, thinking of what success looks like. What did success mean to me and when I "made it", what would that really look like. At the time, I remember thinking of what success to me looked like back when I was 18 years old driving around in my 1986 4-door Chevy Sprint. Yes, quite the car and not exactly what I deemed as a success, but it was mine and I actually paid for it through my own hard work which I was proud of. I ( like most young kids) was so

Many of you have probably heard of the KISS approach. Not the peck on the cheek type, rather the Keep It Simple, Stupid (KISS for acronym) approach to business. KISS is an acronym created by the US Navy in the 1960's based on the concept of systems working best when they are kept very simple, rather than made complicated. From my experience, the KISS mentality has a very obvious application to the online business world and I want to explain that in this post.Everyone has a great deal of capabil

The reality is, any one of us can accomplish a great deal of success within the online world and there is an incredible audience that is engaged and very much looking for a platform/service like WA out there. A long term and sustainable income is going to continue to be our goal and to achieve these, like any business, there are going to be some trials and tribulations, along with a bit of fatigue.To this day, Carson and I can still get fatigue in business. Everyone I know that has been operati
