It seems like all we do is write a post - Do you feel the same way?

Last Update: March 22, 2018

We've been doing our best to live up to the demands of the SWAGers (to the newcomers reading this, SWAGers stand for Super Wealthy Affiliate Group, a group of WA affiliates who applied and got selected to be part of an intensive training). Lately though, all we've been doing is writing posts, to make the 12 posts required per month. We were set back by a trip we made 3 weeks ago, despite some work done during the trip. We are behind on the training and have been working off the knowledge we learned up to Level 3 of Certification, and Phase 2 (in part) of Bootcamp. The desire to learn is so much there, but there isn't much time for us to do it. With our full time jobs, the time we have left is all we can commit, but that leftover time is, of course, shared with other stuff that needs to be done as well. I'm sure you know what I mean. Every night, we stay up late (currently it's 11:16 pm) to do WA work. Then up again at 5 am to get ready for work. To those of you working full time jobs, do you feel the same way?

My lunch break is spent trying to answer questions in the Activity Dashboard, writing comments to solicit comments, or being in live chat. But even my lunch time is interrupted by phone calls or a knock in my office by co-workers who are oblivious to the word lunch break.

I'm not complaining. Despite everything, I truly enjoy what I'm doing here, and my husband does too. We're here for the long haul. We just want to know that we're not alone feeling this way.

You are not alone, myself and wife feel the same some days. But when we remember it's our long term business then were motivated again and feeling does go away.

Habib /Randi, we are all dealing with limited time. There is actually none to work with, so it is quite overwhelmed at times. Balancing your time between work and building a home business can be time consuming.

Best to your online success!

Hi Habibrani! Like you, I'm glad my husband and I are doing this as a team. My hats off, really, to most who are doing it solo

The SWAG challenge does seem like a writing spree at times. Fitting it all in can be challenging especially when we have so many other demands on our time.
Keep at it, it will be worth it in the end.
With Grace and Gratitude

I guess you and I think alike. The Super Challenge is a demand
for all to stay alert and try to focus on writing relevant content.

Stay persistent and consistent!

Do your best!

i'm sure it will. Without that belief, I don't think we'd still be here. Thanks!

You are indeed on a very intense writing schedule! This too will pass, and you'll have a tremendous amount of content to show for it! Hang in there - you won't be producing content at this rate forever, just during this training. Hold on to that fact!

For sure, the days are long and busy for us, here! Kids, full-time jobs, commute, family and friends, and a range of other obstructions I can’t resolve all at once.

I do what is possible, don’t fret about what isn’t, just yet. In our scenario we will start slow, but finish fast. So I’m at peace with how it has to be at the moment.

Hang in there!
