Is Wealthy Affiliate The Real Deal? Finally Broke 4 Digits!
Another month has passed and it has happened so fast! I still feel as if it were summer lol.
October 2018 has been my best month so far and still can't believe I finally broke 4 digits!
I joined WA in 2016 but I was still studying and also procrastinated for some months so my first year I didn't accomplish much.
Last year I got tired of doing nothing and I decided I would start putting in the effort to see what I was capable of achieving. I wanted to answer some questions like "what will it happen if I try?", so in September 2017 I started writing consistently.
Last year at this time I wasn't earning a dime so it's amazing what a year of hard work can do.
I know that reaching 4 digits in 13 months is nothing to brag about because it can be done way faster, especially if you're in another niche because the MMO niche (the one I'm in) is highly competitive.

When it comes to referrals, it has been my best month. My worse day was with 0 referrals and my best day 24. Every month there has been a day that I didn't get any referrals so will there be a month that I get 1 referral as the minimum? Lol.
It's also been the best month when it comes to new, recurring and yearly WA sales. I know that my conversion rate for starter to premium is below average because it is said that 1 in 8 referrals go premium, so I don't know what I'm missing out. If I had an average conversion rate I would have had about 40 referrals go premium.
When it comes to sessions, the lowest was 333 and the highest 1027 (finally 1K sessions in a day lol).
I earned more than what I earned with my temporary job
I recently got a temporary full-time job even though I wasn't looking for one. I had been working full-time on my site for 9 months since I had lost my job back in January 2018.
I accepted the job because I appreciated the fact that my employer had always counted on me to do a specific task that I actually like.
I thought I would still be able to publish 5-7 posts per week on my site, but I get home so tired and something that would take me 4 hours it takes me 8, so sometimes I only get 3-4 hours of sleep just to get a post done.
It really frustrates me that I'm not able to do 1 post a day because that's what I had been doing for over a year and now that I have reached 4 figures, I don't want this job to slow down my progress.
Because of that, I told my employer that I would quit that job. This month I have earned more from my site than with this job so that's another reason why I believe I should quit.
I actually feel bad about quitting because I know there are lots of unemployed people out there who would never quit a job and I appreciated the fact that my employer had been counting on me.
But saying "yes" to 2 or 3 months for that job would be saying "no" to my site, so what should I do? My family members are not convinced that this can work for me but I can't let them decide for myself.
To be honest, I am afraid of the consequences of this decision but the key is "feel the fear and take action anyway".
Am I on time to make it to Vegas?
Still 65 sales to go! Can I have 65 referrals upgrade to premium within 2 months? I know 65 doesn't sound much, especially to those who make over 50 sales a month lol.
Right now in front of myself, on my vision board, I have a picture that Kyle added on one of his Vegas posts and everytime I look at it I imagine myself there, it's a great feeling lol =)
I will keep doing what I have been doing until now and see where I get, it's all a matter of time and effort.
So is Wealthy Affiliate the real deal? Only if you follow the training, complete all the tasks and never give up.
I'm also grateful for every single one of you who have taken the time to reply to my messages and write a comment on my profile and my site. The support we have in this community never stops to amaze me!
Anyway, let's see what this November 2018 brings me! Wishing it becomes my best month!
I hope y'all had a great October =)
