2,000,000 Reasons Why We Care.
We have recently crossed our 2,000,000th member at Wealthy Affiliate!
Looking back to when we started in 2005, I would have told you that you were crazy if you said that one day Wealthy Affiliate would be a community 2,000,000+ members strong.
That is a lot of people the technology and the platform has crossed paths with.
The funny thing is, Carson and I have never been ones to celebrate launches, to celebrate milestones, and certainly refrain from gloating about any successes. The reason is that by the time we reach goals and milestones, we are far beyond these in terms of our thinking and our goal setting.
In all reality our goals change as time goes on, and as we near new goals...other ones are already being created. We are pushing towards helping another million people the next few years, and we are hoping to reach 10-15 million members within the next decade. These are ambitious goals sure, but I am confident they can be achieved.
At the end of the day, there is a person behind each and every 2,000,000. If you are reading this, you are likely one of them. You are the reason we are motivated to continue improving the platform and community here, and the reason we are investing more resources than ever into the platform and community at Wealthy Affiliate.
Our goal is to HELP each and ever person that sets foot here and help them discover potential that they might not have realized before. If we are not able to accomplish this, then the number is a meaningless figure. The goal is to have a meaningful and positive impact on every person's life here at WA, and that is going to be our unrelenting focus as we move forward.
Based on the feedback we have had over the years, you have directly played a significant role in helping us improve the platform here. We have changed based on this feedback, and we will continue to take all forms of feedback (both positive and negative), and use these as signals as to how we can improve as a company.
YOU in essence are the creators of what Wealthy Affiliate has become, without YOU, we wouldn't have made many of the evolutionary changes we have.
YOU are the reason why we care.
YOU are what motivates us.
YOU are what makes us strive to be better.
YOU are the reason we are 100% dedicated to Wealthy Affiliate over the next decade to continue being at the leaders of the affiliate marketing industry.
We are not concerned about the numbers, or stats...those mean nothing to us by the time we reach them, instead our greatest concern and focus is making sure you have the best tools, training, and platforms to create and grow a successful business online.
That is our focus. That is our mission. That is what you are going to see take shape as we push forward in 2020 and far beyond.
So as big as the community becomes, and as many people that make their way to Wealthy Affiliate, our values will remain authentic, ethical and grounded. We will remain very much hands on and integrated into the community. Your wants and needs are what motivate and drive us, and will continue to. That is our promise to you.
YOU are our reason WHY. We thank you. You mean the world to us.
Your Friends at Wealthy Affiliate,
Kyle (& Carson )
