7 Years of Success Stories 2010 - 2017

Hey everyone,

Whenever we feel discouraged or lazy, reading about success stories serve as a good source of motivation, so I decided to compile all the success stories I can find here in WA. This is of course not a complete list (there are probably tons more) and it seems like the older posts before 2010 have been archived somewhere, so we can't access those anymore.

Anyway, from my compilation I noticed a few things:

1) There are many free starter members who have attained successes

2) Members from non-English speaking countries are also making earnings

I think the 3 key factors to their success are:

1) Attitude - Willingness to learn is very important, and don't let failure hold you back

2) Hard work - Writing articles, creating images, doing research, all these are hard work and will require a lot of time and effort

3) Patience - It takes time for your site and all your posts to be indexed by google, it can take up to months, so we really need to be patient.

* Special update from 2017 *

From now onwards, I hope to compile a new list of success stories from members here whom I know personally.

Here's a post from a friend whom I have the honour of knowing here in WA and his hard work and positive attitude have paid off. Read his recent post and be inspired:

This is another friend here who has used her tenacity in her blogs, over and over again, and her patience has paid off:

Next come my incomplete list of success from existing members whom I may or may not have the pleasure of knowing:

Lastly, I just started out in Feb 2017, yes that's last month and I have already made my first sale. I am so looking forward to the day when I can be writing many success stories of my own, will definitely blog about it then.

Hope you are as motivated by these stories as I am. Let's keep moving forward!

Awesome! You've done your homework on this list! Thanks!

Thanks for reading!

Hi there
well done and this is a very interesting post,
so many succcess stories here and the moral of the story is...
they all acn't be wrong
each and every link is about how they achieved success and also how they stayed the distance
I have bookmarked this for later
Cheers and thanks for posting
PB

Hi Phil, It is indeed inspiring to read all these stories by people from all walks of life. It doesn't matter where we come from, we will make things work if we are determined!

This listing is just fabulous Moon. Thanks. In the updated version, I hope to be on that list.
Mr. B

Hi Mr. B, I planned to update this on a yearly basis, let's aim to get on that list next year :)

A sale within your first month? Congrats! You are definitely doing something very right.

It's great to have access to other people's success stories like this. For many people, staying positive and being patient is probably the hardest part. I think almost everyone is willing to work hard to achieve their dreams, but working hard for months on end with no real effect and no sign of impending success can be very draining and highly discouraging. That's why I love the community here and the way people are always offering support to each other.

My sale was to my friend who was convinced when I told him about this great community I found, so I'm not sure whether I'm doing things right for my website. I try to promote in person and maybe I am more persuasive in person than in my website....lol

It is easy to feel discouraged but if we have a community of people supporting one another, we progress so much faster and won't fall into the slumps so easily.

Thanks for a great post :-)
Rich

Glad you like it Rich! :)

Great accumulation
Thank you, for you dedication.
Moon

Took me almost 1 day to compile, thanks for dropping by :)

Thanks so much for this work! Two thumbs up!! Dave : )

Right back at you Dave!

Hi Moon,

I really appreciate your effort and time to share with us this useful information. And as a newbie it is really important to know this even if success is really something personal and individual but it is good for our motivation and work.

Thanks again for sharing.
Odile

Hi there, different people measure success differently so I have included stories not only of money but other criteria too. I am also a newbie but I hope I can help the community here.

Hi Moon,

Wow very impressive indeed it just comes to show that if one diligently apply what we are taught here at WA, success will be sure to follow.
Congratulations on all your great achievements and may you go from strength to strength.......you are a great role model.

Thank's for sharing and take care.

Johan.

Hi Johan,

I didn't realize there are about 100 stories here. Lots of people have gained success and I'm sure we can do it too!

It's all good news Moon.......let's celebrate and be successful. YES, we can do it for sure!

YES, let's become a success and share our stories here too!

Now that's a good and positive idea - let's do it!

On the way LOL!

Hi Moon

How wonderful that you took the time to compile this to help others (and yourself) maintain the motivation to keep going. When the going gets tough ... WA members keep going!

Thank you for this!

All the best

Gillian

Hi Gillian,

I see new members coming in all the time and many are asking for success stories, decide to compile a full list (which is impossible) of members here who have been there.
