An Ill-Educated Perspective.
I had a coffee this afternoon with my uncle in town, we were talking and brought up the topic of Wealthy Affiliate and online business.
Earlier on in the week, my uncle had asked about the work I was doing online, so I had recommended that he check out the WA website.
As we were having our coffee, I mentioned how busy I had been with this work in the last few months.
My uncle's initial response was: "Well I went to the Wealthy Affiliate website and it says you can create an online business in a few simple steps".
Which is true. For example, how many other platforms out there allow you to create websites in 30 seconds or less, right? Not many, I can tell you.
What my uncle didn't realise was that comparatively, not only does this platform save us time and money, there is a lot less work to do in the long term as compared to what the cash-hungry "gurus" out there have to offer.
The difference between WA and the vast majority of the other platforms out there on the Internet is that WA doesn't purport to be something it is not.
The sad reality is that any service that purports to lead to instant results or overnight success is a lie.
Our default mindset often leads us to believe that these systems are the ones that will work - these scammers are good at their craft.
And our default mindset usually happens to be the "Scams work!" mindset, until we're informed otherwise (no offense, Uncle!).
It shouldn't take a genius to figure out that these two-faced hermaphrodites are outright scammers... but unfortunately it usually does.
I speak from experience too - in the past I trialed our several of the other platforms that proclaim to make you rich within a month or less. After pumping my time and financial resources into these "success systems", I soon realised that they were all as fraudulent as each other.
Was I glad to find WA!
So, although it takes time and effort to build up our online businesses here at WA, we can rest assured that our time is being invested wisely and we're not falling victim to the empty promises of the so-called gurus.
Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!
