An Apology

Last Update: September 28, 2015

A few days ago I wrote a blog entitled "What I Appreciate About Wealthy Affiliate." The point of the blog was to thank the WA owners, Kyle and Carson, for creating this company that so people have the opportunity to join, without pressure, and benefit from everything that WA has to offer.

Unfortunately, when trying to explain my sentiments, I was also remembering the different business opportunity meetings and some of the programs I've joined, the time and money wasted, the disappointment, that I completely lost focus and just went to another extreme by being overly critical and "going off". This platform should not have been used to vent my past frustrations; I should have just shared what I learned from my own mistakes - not doing my own thorough research, for instance - and let it go.

I am not sorry for the way I feel and I know that my blog should have been put to more constructive use.

Someone pointed out to me that this type of presentation (homes, cars, luxury travel) does, in fact, motivate some people - it is used to demonstrate that with time and effort these material possessions can be acquired, if so desired - and that it is possible. I only saw the negative in this as "bragging" when this is not always the case.

Again, I am sorry if I offended anybody with my previous blog. It was uncalled for and won't happen again!

P.S. I promise not to blog about religion or politics and risk being "expelled" from the WA community altogether! LOL

Margaret...as Marion wrote, there is NO reason to apologize.

You wrote..."Someone pointed out to me that this type of presentation (homes, cars, luxury travel) does, in fact, motivate some people - it is used to demonstrate that with time and effort these material possessions can be acquired, if so desired."

That is a true statement. Unfortunately, the manner in which that message is often presented is that it will somehow happen, magically, with little or no effort needed. That approach preys on those who are in desperate need of money and who don't realize that, while possible to achieve, it's going to take time, effort, and patience. In short, they are selling false promises and that's what I felt you objected to. I share that same feeling!

Bottom line, it doesn't hurt to point out the "evils" of the internet...they just go to support the value of WA.

Now, about politics... LOL!!

You are correct, Vince. That is what I meant to convey - the way "they" make it look so easy to "get rich"...

Politics? Nooooooo

Apology not needed. We all need to vent from time to time. ~Marion
