The WA spirit. WOW!

Last Update: February 05, 2016

So hows about this kick-ass WA spirit? I for one absolutely love it.

I saw something negative recently here on WA and I can't remember if it was a post or a comment or who wrote it... but the theme of it was that people are active here because it makes them feel good when they think they are popular... they write training because they are "pushed into it" by the owners and the person that referred them... He also said how everyone here is so "happy" and pro WA

So this person must think this is some sort of cult thing... that if I get a referral and they post training I get some sort of financial benefit? Maybe he thinks it is MM? **shudder** hahaha

I just felt sad for that person because yeah I am one of those "happy" people, I am "pro" WA, I blog a lot here (and I like to believe that it is beneficial to others and not just me being all "popular") and yes every now and then I publish training. I also help members where I can.

I love it and you with the negativity and blinkers on have missed the whole beauty of it!

So why do I do it... well here is the simple answer!

Yesterday I took some time to help someone better understand where to put his keywords and when he understood it better that was awesome! I love it when someone gets a ding dong moment and I could be a part of that.

I welcomed someone new and made some comments on his profile because I felt like we had a lot in common, I think that made a difference to him.

Today someone in live chat said he struggled with English and his grammar so I proof read his post and sent him corrections...

So did I get PAID for that? Well no I didn't... but that doesn't mean it was any less rewarding.

So what did I get back?

Someone left a comment and my website and took the time to also send me a private message on WA to correct some typos I made! Thank you, I mean really THANK YOU! There is one thing I hate and that is a typo! Oh wait there is one thing I hate more than a typo.... its a typo on MY website that I did... eeeeekkkk no!

Someone on WA inboxed me this week and told me my comments section is not showing. WTF my website has been up for 7 months and my comment section is visible... how on earth can my comments not be showing on that one post? Who knows but that is what happened and I had no idea. I quickly fixed that. THANK YOU!

I mentioned in another post that I got a vicious organic comment on my website... which made me happy because it means people are finding me, they are engaging with me and they take me seriously. Some members from WA took the time to visit my website, search for that post and back up my content with their comments. I never asked you for this, but you did it because you care! THANK YOU.

So this community is truly a give AND take. This is what makes WA so special, this is why I don't think I have ever whipped out my credit card so fast AND with a smile on my face when I arrived here.

Oh yes AND by being an active member of WA it can actually benefit YOU financially....

I dont understand these people who dish out negative vibes that never got anybody anywhere.

Right on sista.

Great post! I think the more active we can be with-in WA, the firmer our foot is wedged in the door of opportunity!
laurenjean Premium
Nice one Lynne! That cartoon really made me giggle.

Hi Friend,
I enjoyed youd post and I agree with the things said. BTW I am another one of those happy people.

I have also written about the community here at WA and I certainly think that most members get it. if someone is not happy here I hate to see what the rest of their life is like.

Just keep being you... you rock!

Oh yes Stephen, that is something I was wondering about too. If someone is so miserable here what are they like at home, with their friends and their family? I find that hanging out with happy and positive people has a wonderful effect on my state of mind.

Last year I had an employee that was just such a miserable and negative person. I was also at a seriously down point in my life. I retrenched her and it was incredible to see my life turn around like it did. The thing is I was spending most of my waking hours with a negative person and I couldn't see it.

I won't ever make that mistake again! I found WA while she was still working for me...and I believe that was a big part of me retrenching her.

WA has done so much more for me than just show me how to write content and set up a website... This is the best place to be.

It's quite funny because I've had a few people ask me how long I plan to stay here, surely at some stage I will have learned enough and not really need to pay $47 a month?

I will be staying here because this is the place to be, this is the place that keeps me up to date with what is happening online, I get support and help, I have formed friendships... and very importantly every day I get a good healthy dose of positivity, encouragement and just all those good things I need to keep a smile on my face.

Like I said you rock... not to try to take any of the spot light but your situation in many way reminds me of my own. The recent past and the present.
LynneHuy Premium
You rock too buddy! It is so great to be able to connect with like minded people. The change in my life since finding WA has been incredible. My positive nature has increased hugely. Not much can take me down now. Just a little more time and I will be flying with my online business! How goes it your side?

This is a great post. It comes honestly and from your heart. I found out not everyone likes to be corrected and not everyone will help. However, I'd rather hear it from someone here then have an organic reader find my error. Kudos to you -- you're doing a great job. ~Debbi

not sure I understand how can someone not see how much they could benefit from being part of this community (and I don't mean financially at all) just by learning a lot of new things every day and being surrounded by genuine helpful and encouraging people.but then this is their loss...
LynneHuy Premium
Yes exactly, it is insane if someone can't see it already!
SusanAL Premium
Thanks for sharing. You have a wonderful spirit. =D

Well said Lynne. Yes, I think there are a few (very few) who do things to be popular. But, I think there are many, many more that are here because they love it. They blog and comment because they enjoy interacting with others. Training blogs are usually the result of a question they had or were asked about by someone else. Some people can't see the good in the world because they don't want to see it!

Thank you for sharing your experiences and the passion you have here. Well done and I might reach out as I've been stuck 4 a bit.
LynneHuy Premium
Please do! I will be happy to help if I can :)

Hi Lynne. I have to say, and I love sayin' have a remarkable way with words. Absolutely readable, and it won't be long before you standing smack in the middle of your dream.
Forget about the small people. They've been around for ever. I've said this before: there are only about 12 of them on the entire planet, they just move around a lot.
Quality post, quality lady........Dick

Love your post here Lynne :) I know that there are some negativity here at WA, and it can even come from everyone (no matter if he/she is ambassador, top 50 or other).

I have interacted with a lot of people here and I now know some people who truly brings positivity into the community and who is a BS. It's sad, but I guess a little negativity won't affect the great positivity that comes from most people here :)

Good deeds will be paid over like what you have been done and others done unto you :) Have a blessed day Lynne.

Thanks Lynne for this blog, I agree, WA is a win-win,
halinphilly Premium
You have captured the essence of WA perfectly. I "got it" right away... having paid for trainings on pdf and video modules in the past that varied in usefulness.

I, too was only hear a few days before upgrading to premium. I can barely afford it at the moment, but I also understand that I can barely afford NOT to be premium member. I love to blog, read other people's blogs, chat, welcome newbies, follow ambassadors. All that stuff. And of course, immerse myself in some of the best training for affiliate marketing anywhere on the internet.

So in short, Lynne - I heartily concur!

Hi Lynne
Great post.. well said. Wish I could express my experience on WA so well too. But I agree with you.. For me, after being scammed on a few sites, it's absolutely heartening to be part of a community of selfless givers and white hat operators.I definitely am happy to be networking and trying to build my business within WA. Everybody has the right to their opinion but may the WA community continue to to be supportive and giving.. To our successes!! :)

Lynn. Liked and shared on FB. I'll catch up on your FB page. Long work days right now at my JOB.
Maestrob Premium
Some just don't get it. You obviously do.

PS. I hope to be able to blog as well as you one day!
Jozeph Premium
Second that Lynne. There will always be the type that no matter what, they wouldn't know something great if it came down and hugged them. :)
Oh well, to the Wise goes the Pearls. Hmmm, not bad, just made that up lol.
Anyway, here's my thought on it, just to second yours :)
Have a wonderful day, great post!

Well said, and they say what comes around goes around.

Lynne...this post could literally become first class marketing material for WA (not that they need it!) You have covered all the reasons, with your first hand examples, of why WA is one of a kind and a cut above.

Not only are an excellent writer, Lynne and I love your authentic voice. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word of this post. Thank you. Warmly, Heather :-)

Riveting post Lynne, think that is how many of us feel for sure. It is such a blessing to have passion in our lives.

It's gratifying, isn't it? "Seeing" and knowing that the person you were/are helping really got it and that's what's all about when you lend a hand. Thanks for vocalizing it, Lynne!

Helping people is a great thing and the more you help, the more people will help you.

The WA spirit is really good. I don't mind if people say it is a cult. Helping people should be a cult.

Great Blog. You are so right that we are a part of the best community I have ever come across. Overall it is a community of like-minded individuals who what to help others and if possible, help themselves along the way.

It seems that most of us truly want to help others. This is our motivation to move forward.

paulmees Premium
Hi Lynne, thank you for this post. I totally agree with what you wrote. I joined less than two weeks ago but I love interacting with the people in our WA community and learn, and help others. When you work from home by yourself the positive energy on this platform gets me going. Wish you lots of success.
