Just Upgraded to Yearly

Last Update: October 20, 2017

I’ve always dreamt of owning my own business. But I never knew where to start and how to do it. It’s true I had a few ideas but I couldn’t ever put together a business plan to action. Perhaps I was afraid to fail. You know, not everyone has that go getter attitude that many successful entrepreneurs do. So I stuck to office jobs and the traditional college system. Things have changed.

I never gave up. I kept searching for the right opportunity. One that would give me the support I needed to make it on my own. I looked for partners, I searched for online programs. And I found one I thought to be interesting. But there was something about it that I didn’t quite like. That’s when Wealthy Affiliate popped up in front of me. I took advantage of the initial offer and signed up right away to check it out.

It’s been almost 5 weeks now. I’m more convinced than ever that this is what I need to start my own business. Last night, I found myself drinking coffee at 10:00pm at night. My wife asked me; are you crazy? I said, no. I’m focused on making this happen. She said; wow, I’ve never seen you like that! I said; me neither, but I love it.

I have accomplished a lot these last 5 weeks. I got my site up and running, a logo, some affiliate links on it, started the Bootcamp, got up to rank #171, and I want more. As I’m visualizing my first commission coming soon, I decided to upgrade to the yearly membership. I can feel it’s happening! And as it’s my own business, I’m investing on it. My dream has come true. Wish me luck.

Great share, Marcus! You're doing incredible. You've found a real home here and you're taking great strides with your business. You're building traffic, you sites are getting clicks, and your conversions are right around the corner. You're ahead of where I was at 5 weeks in and I'm very excited for what lies ahead. Great job!

how much does it cost to go yearly?

It's a little over $300 and totally worth it as you get a big discount from the $59/mo premium, and you don't worry about making payments every month

I understand your initial apprehension. I started slowly but today I finally got my first post online. My husband doesn't understand the mindset either. I've been at it for hours. I find it challenging and fun. It sounds like you are well on your way and I wish you great success.
