Quiet Results Are Happening!

Last Update: January 10, 2018

The question of "how many successful people WA produces" comes up from time to time, so I wanted to write a quick blog post with my thoughts on the subject. This topic came to mind because I had a mind-blowing week behind the scenes.

OK, maybe not mind-blowing. But it certainly was very positive, and the bummer was that no one else saw it but me!

I actually received 5 separate private messages from referrals of mine asking for help on their websites. That's not out of the ordinary actually - I usually get a lot more than that. The extraordinary thing about these messages was that they were all starting to make money from their websites and were asking how to optimize and grow their sites to make more.

Some had been here for just a few months. Some have been here for almost a year. They were all in different niches.

So this made me wonder...how many other folks are getting results and making money?

The answer is, probably a lot more than we hear about.

==> Example of someone making money, who doesn't like to share their website: The Perfect Website For You To Study (There's absolutely nothing wrong with that! Just wanted to show you that not everyone likes to show off their successes for different reasons)

Of course, there's no real way for me to count how many successes there are in WA, same as there's no way to count how many people drop out. But it just made me consider that if someone can go radio-silent for five months, then out of the blue come out and say, "Yeah, I've been making a few hundred a month for a while now. How do I grow past that"...it's amazing!

Some people do blog about their first sale, and some people do post updates with their income or other awesome results they're getting. I like to collect these stories to remind myself, and others, of what's happening here in the community. So take a look at these stories below, and imagine how many more are happening quietly behind the scenes.

Thank you, Nathniell! This is an Awesome post. For newbies like me it's great to see other WA members succeed. It means it's possible for the rest of us. I'm new on the scene and one thing I wondered about was this very thing, there isn't anywhere to see how everyone is doing really and I truly appreciate you posting these successes. Great Job!

Interesting nathaniell. I am not sure how I will react when I make my first dollar from my website. I may either jump for joy and tell everyone on WA or I may keep it to myself (until I make even more). Hard to tell how this old man will react. DAN

Great little post...I have been with WA now for over a year and although I have not made a penny from affiliate marketing ( thats prob down to me not posting enough) I have created a new business in building websites for people ( local businesses) and using WA hosting..this has meant I have made money through building rather than selling..Plus its great to be part of this community as if I ever have any questions the first place i come is here..I hope one day I may even make a couple of quid from Affiliate marketing but for now im enjoying building ha ha!

Hi Nathaniell. I am sure there are a ton of folks who are doing very well. If some are not, chances are we are getting in our own way. Kind of like the quote,"We have met the enemy and he is us." Once we conquer self doubt we are on the way. Thanks for this blog.

Super post Nathaniell, I love it!

It makes sense that several folks are making money from learning and building at WA.

It also makes sense that many have left for whatever their reason.

Life is what you make of it and opportunities are abundant through WA.

I'm not going anywhere.

ROCK ON!

It may have been due to using an affiliate link. I've seen people share stuff on FB before. Also, sometimes they just block stuff willy nilly, especially if it has to do with "make money online"

SeanOnline Premium
Yup, that was probably it for me, Nathaniell - I used an affiliate link. Posting blog posts from my site is never a problem.

Great post of success stories here - I have bookmarked it!

Excellent stuff Nathaniell, people quietly going about their business without necessarily shouting about their achievements all the time. Much more agreeable than the tasteless "gurus" who constantly brag about their latest magic bullet.
Thanks for getting them all together and sharing with us.

This makes you feel really good when you realize that there are people all around you who have buckled down and are doing the things they have been taught here. Sometimes we don't think of ourselves as being successful because we are not making a killing yet. However, success can be defined in many ways. The things that you now know how to do that you did not know just a while back... that is part of success. I have been making a consistent income for over a year. It may not be where my goal is yet but it is consistent and that counts. We need to keep our goals high in order to keep stretching anyway.
