I started WA over a year and a half ago. I was excited and it was my first community site I ventured into to learn about online marketing. I had a website up and running with several articles that I was proud of. I really was enjoying the process. Then the distractions came about. They always will.

When you search out "working from home," "online business," or "entrepreneur," just know that you'll be targeted, and perhaps even swayed like I was, to pursue these tempting ventures by other marketers. The rabbit hole goes deep and there is a lot to learn. I actually paid a few thousand dollars to a company that taught all about FB ads and PPC. A beginner here at WA, or online marketing in general, probably is unaware of all these ways to target potential customers, clients, etc. But most will advertise to you how fast you can make money.

My advice is don't take the bait. You can learn a ton of info for free online. If you dish out thousands like me you may end up with buyers remorse and a skill set that doesn't fit your interests or personality. I took the bait of being able to earn faster by an "easier" marketing tactic.

It was marketing for small businesses. There is nothing inherently wrong with this. I just don't like working sales and dealing with people in that manner. I do now have knowledge of a lot of behind the scene business tools like funnels, email generation, call tracking, and FB marketing. I learned a lot. But most importantly, that running ads for small businesses wasn't for me. My excitement faded and I regretted not sticking to my path that had so much momentum and a genuine part of me in it. Find what makes you excited, not what claims to earn you money fast.

WA is completely worth the cost (It's super affordable anyway). They really walk you step by step through the process. It's a great system here. I am considering doing the boot camp this time around. I feel I have a huge grasp on the field now and can use my experience to help others seek out great opportunity. I most likely will also pursue product/service passions as well, along with using other affiliate methods (like Youtube or IG), as one should to diversify oneself in the market. Learn as much as possible! Then go and learn some more!

With the training, hosting, and community you get here at WA, it's a great place to angle in on a successful business. I am that guy who has been around the block and found out that this place is legit. I will tell you that I haven't made any money at all online marketing. The last year and a half has been spent learning & trying to figure out which avenue to take. Well I'm back here and Wealthy Affiliate will be a major artery on my map to success!

I'm with you on being free to work wherever you are at the moment. I have often thought about just taking a trip and pulling out my laptop at some beautiful log cabin in the mountains looking out at a lake or beautiful valley. Why not work with that scenery rather than at some plastered walls, with little or no windows with old lights flickering and buzzing.

Good Morning, I made the move to the premium membership about six months ago. I followed the certification program to the "T" and started seeing some real activity to my first site. I lost interest in the site and the topic I picked and left WA for a while. I’m recently back now and re-inspired to do some work.. I was thinking about trying to join forces with some other ambitious members here to make some real money. Let me know if you might be interested...If not, I wish you all the luck in the world for all that you dream to accomplish. Chris

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

The first thing I recommend you to do is to start your Online Entrepreneur Certification Course (Level 1).

You can find the link to your first lesson on your main menu on the right labeled "Getting Started."

This is a task-based course which will help you to set up the foundation of your online business.

If you have questions or need a hand with your online business, feel free to leave me a message.

I wish you great success, and I hope you enjoy this journey!
