My Success Story
Last Update: Jun 1, 2020
I do hope this blog post finds all well and safe. It appears most of the world is beginning to or has already opened back up from the pandemic.
But that is not the reason I come to you today. I want to write a success story because we all love success. It gives us strength. But today, I will write this to me as a reminder of the incredible strides I am making.
When I hit a down day, and I will for it is inevitable, I will look back at this post and gain strength from it once again.
I have three sites here at WA. One is my poetry and inspiration/motivation site. For the moment, this one is dormant, with over 140 posts on it. I shall begin work on it again soon because it is my passion.
I recently started a new site dealing with DNA. By recently, I mean it is five months old. So that is not very new, but it feels recent to me.
My third site is my MMO site, where I promote WA. This site is two years old. It is built up and healthy but had and still has some glitches. I have spent so much time developing it that I got lost on the way up. I was stuck on the 98th step of a 100-step ladder headed up to reach my dreams.
I am sure many know what I mean. I am sure you have experienced this also.
WA Freinds And Support
I have had help from some knowledgeable and incredible WA members along the way. I received invaluable advice from a select few. Those select few have kept me going in times of frustration and doubt. You know exactly who you are.
Those valuable friends would go out of their way to assist me because we care about each other. I know they too are swamped and always appreciate the help, but oh how I hate to bother them.
So, before I threw in the towel, after two long hard years of creating, I dug deep into my pocket and sought out help from another reputable source. I joined up with Jay on his monthly program.
He has looked at my sites and given me advice that brought new awareness to my world of online business.
The part of this blog that is a success story is; Right away, he gave me suggestions to make changes. I followed through will all of them. With the very first one, I saw an increase in my traffic on both sites.
It started with an increase of 100 people to my site, then the growth went up to 200, and now each day I check my analytics, I am having a 300+ increase in traffic.
We all know that free organic traffic is money in the bank. That is what WA teaches us over and over again.
If you look back at my blog posts, you will see that I have never posted a true personal success story. I knew that success is not just monetary, but it is in creation and accomplishments.
66 Steps Forward
I am posting my success story now as a reminder to me that I am no longer taking 1 step forward and 3 steps back. I am taking 3 steps forward and 1 step back. When that one step back happens, I will look back at this post and remember that I am 99 steps ahead and only 33 steps back. I am 66 steps forward on my road to Vegas.
What is your success story? How long did it take you to figure out that money is not success? Money is a by-product of success! Don't get me wrong; I do love the money also.
Congratulations on all the steps you took previously Laura as they all led you to this point, good or bad, forward or backward!
Glad you're in a good place now and with more clarity of purpose and strategy, great stuff and well done.
Good luck and may all of your steps be upward ones from here on in.
Thank you Mark for your words of encouragement and taking the time to read my post. I appreciate this.
Congrats!!!! My friend, you are doing so well now compared to a few weeks ago.
Having the knowledge is so awesome and how cool Jay is there to offer guidance.
Your sites look so amazing now and it is wonderful to read your how much more traffic is visiting your site
Vegas will be just down the road for you :)
A great post
Thank you- You rock!
Hey my friend, thanks for reading. You ROCK!!! Your support and listening ear has taken me far.
Thanks my friend. always here for you and I know your new site is going to sky rocket as well as the others
Good afternoon Laura,
Only a couple of weeks ago I thought the time had finally come for a 3e website, this one promoting WA. Well. it was not to be as I did something else as you know.
I think you are doing very well, and with Jays help it will definitely be a success. Money gives some peace of mind, but for sure it does not make you happy. It is the freedom it can buy you and the road to achieve it that makes you happy.
Greetings from the south of Spain,
Taetske, Your new site is so important. WA promotion will come when the time is right. You are so right, money gives some peace but it is the challenge that makes me happy. But money is good. LOL
that is a wonderfully uplifting post. i have no doubt that somewhere down the line , when feeling like the next hurdle is too large you will, as you say be able to look at your posts and the comments supporting it...
Well done for asking for help, for having that courageous conversation with your mentors and yourself...
Well done :)

Thank you for reaching out. I needed a spiritual injection. I’m reminded of a quote from Churchill “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we GIVE.” Getting is trading time for money. GIVING is Financial Freedom. We can’t help the poor, being poor ourselves. Keep giving it’ll pay off.
To Your Success,
Thank you. What a wonderful quote. I love it!
