2019 Income Proof List

Last Update: October 13, 2019

I'm continuing my yearly tradition of logging as many money-related success stories as I can during the year. So far, 2019 is already creating a lot of work for me (that's a good thing!). Just two weeks in, and I've already go a ton.

Last year I organized the posts into "big money" and "small money". This year I'm just doing "earning money" and "first sales".

Previous Years

You can also post links to other success stories in the comments if I missed some. Plus, don't forget, you can link back to this post using your affiliate link (click the "Affiliate" button on this page). If you refer someone to this page using your affiliate link, and they end up joining WA, you get 50% commission!

Somewhat related, I'm only posting stories about people doing their own niche (not promoting WA). Nothing against Bootcampers! I just want to showcase all the different ways you can make money online, outside of the MMO niche.

You know, haters gonna hate, and that way if someone says "yOu OnLy mAkE mOnEy If YoU pRoMoTe MaKe MoNeY sChEmEs" you can show them this post.

Lastly, don't forget that making money is great, but there are many other ways to count successes. Making your first website, writing your first article, or getting your first trickle of organic traffic - these are all important steps to building an online income.

Set daily goals, take action, and ask for help when you need it. You can do it. It won't happen over night. It won't be instant. But it WILL happen. Just look at what other Wealthy Affiliate members are achieving this year:

I cannot believe I haven't had the decency to leave a positive comment on here, as I've been using this post as a reference for a while now! tut tut...

Apologies Nate :(

Awesome piece deserves more exposure than it's had so far. Honestly, for all the new members that go through their first rut or tough time, this post is a great motivational tool for them.

Although there's one discrepancy I've found, it's missing the following... ;))

Thanks again for this Nate,
Mike and Rhi

Dear Sir,
I really enjoyed your compilation of cheer here! The one thing that resonates with me is your statement regarding other measures of success. It is a celebration to me to be in the top rank, apart from perks of money. I am humbled to be close to the top of the totem pole with you☺
Thank you for pointing out that it is not only Mmo making a difference to financial and all other inspirational dreams of Wealthy Affiliates! We are so much more

Hey Nathaniell,

Thanks for putting this together and sharing it.

Just a question as you mentioned above - regarding linking back this post using our own affiliated link. Do you mean your post "2019 Income Proof list"? or any of the post you shared here?

If so, by chance can you please note an example where we can share this post? I'm fairly new to WA and I was under the impression, we cannot share WA links to external source.

Thank again.

SondraM Premium
Terri, I am answering for now. I think Nathaniel is probably very busy at the Super affiliate conference in Vegas right now.

Yes, you can share WA links to external sources. Just make sure the external source will allow them or you will get banned by the group. I do not do a lot with social media currently, so I'm not the best person to ask about the rules in different places. Facebook and Google + are two that I hear people moaning about the rules.

To share a link, scroll back up to the top of the post. On the right hand side, just on top of the picture is a blue box that says "Affiliate" Click on that and copy the link. It should have your code with it. Then paste the link where you want to use it.

This will apply for any of his posts, to include this one, or others that you want to share.

Hi Sondra, I appreciate your response on Nathaniel's behalf.
Thanks for confirming that we can share a WA post.

I still don't feel comfortable especially in terms of sharing on social media - until I get everything setup properly on the business side of things. :)

Am thinking sharing links via email (when that opportunity arise). Thanks again Sondra!

Stella2 Premium
Thanks for compiling this, Nathaniell. I'm sure it's inspiring for those who are starting out or need a shot of motivation.

I agree withe the idea of different definitions for success. The money is nice, but I'm really pleased now because I finally settled into a niche that I love to work on. I enjoy it each day and it never feels like work!!

Stella :-)
SondraM Premium
That is great idea to summarize examples of people making money with niche websites that are not in the MMO niche.

I predict that I will be linking to your post at some point in the future. Thank you for being willing to share your work with everyone.

Awesome job Nathaniell!
You are definitely someone I look to for inspiration.
All the best,
DaveAsprey Premium
Hi Nathaniell
I'm going through boot camp at the moment and only in the early stages of it. But I definitely reckon that having your own websites is the way to go. I will promote WA on the side but my passion is creating my own niche blog. Thanks for the post and I will definitely have a look at your links
merlynmac Premium
I always look forward to your "money" posts. BTW I love the SpongeBob image, LOL.

Keep posting them...they're great inspiration to those looking to succeed.
Sui_generis Premium
Well done!!!! You're one of the guys to watch.

JMatonge1 Premium
Congratulations, Nathaniell, Your rewards of hard work are paying off better and better each new year. Thank you for being one of my trendsetters at Wealthy Affiliate. Keep it up.
FKelso Premium
Good to see your progress. Encouraging to us all.
beachwood Premium
Awesome! Thanks, Nathaniell! Good stuff! I'm definitely going to link to this page in my promotions.

Terand Premium
Wow, what a good summary too! Well done and thank you for sharing, Nathaniell! :o)
