My Progress After A Year At WA
Last Update: Aug 31, 2018
Wow! What a journey.
Being totally honest, I am FAR from having acheived the $1000 a week goal I started out with. It has been very challenging but i still have the buring desire to make this work.
Here are several things I have learned about myself and this process..
- It is sooooo easy to get distracted. It has been a year and I am STILL NOT THROUGH THE TRAINING! So I will not go on a diatribe about how blogging doesn't work for me because until I complete the training it wouldn't be a fair assessment.
- Making a successful website takes alot of time, dedication, and motivation. I'll just come right out and say it...working your butt off on something from which you are not immediately seeing profit makes you want to give up.
- But I know it's something all successful bloggers have worked past and the tools are here if I put in the time.
- There is sooooo much to learn. In fact, the learning is continual. So I have had to have an attitude shift. This isn't a sprint, it's a marathon. Consistency is the key....even if it's just one thing a day. It all adds up. Of course there is no doubt that there is a direct correlation between what you put in and how fast you'll get it out.
- You will either like blogging or you won't. Everyone is drawn in by different ideas...working from home, owning your own business, making money online etc.
- But once I got started I had to ask myself some serious questions such as...is this really for me? Do I prefer working from home as opposed to in a social environment? Do I like sitting at the computer for hours? Am I creative enough to come up consistently with quality content? Am I willing to be patient, invest in myself and abilities, and see this thing through until its reaches my goal?
DO YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN DO THIS?
Finding the answers to these question, for me, still has me in pursuit of my original goal. There is no doubt I am in the right place to make it work. 99% percent of my questions on any topic are answered right here. Stellar community and network. So I'll be pressing on.
What a journey it must have been, but your journey is far from over so I wish you all the best. Enjoy your trip to financial freedom Mel.

Hi Melody. You make some interesting points. I totally believe that we are all on a journey with WA. However, we all need to ask ourselves relevant questions just as you did. Is blogging for you? This is the main question. Not everyone is a writer, just like everyone is not a football player. There is one thing that's seems to be missing in our training. It's not always necessary to construct a blog style Web site. It is possible to actually build a site that sells products or services without using affiliate companies, and this can be achieved using those sites provided by WA. Jim
Precisely... finding our own particular pathway to online success can only be done by being brutally honest with ourselves. Is it no small wonder that you may not do well at blogging if you don’t like writing? As you point out there are many ways that lead to the same destination. It is incumbent upon each of us to find our own path.
