Why a Lawyer Joins Wealthy Affiliate? Don’t you want to know?

Last Update: June 29, 2018

I know! You must be saying What? A lawyer joins Wealthy Affiliate? Is he broke? Or is he out of his mind?

Yes, I am a retired attorney with extensive certification from the IT industry, mostly related to SEO and SEM. I have enclosed some of my certifications in my profile for you to view.

Before retired, many of my colleagues and acquaintances asked me what I would do in retirement? I told them that I want to share my legal and business experiences to help small business owners, for free. I have been doing that for over a year now. I am currently sitting on three different Boards of Directors for The Community Economic Development Corporation. I have helped hundreds of small business owners and inspired entrepreneurs, but my biggest problem is that I do not have enough time to counsel everyone whose came for help. I need to find a better solution. Then one day, a young intern told me, TQ why don’t you put everything online, so people can learn for themselves. Aha... We both started our journey to search for a web hosting platform to build my dream.

About a month ago, we found Wealthy Affiliate. At first, I was very skeptical of this company. I do not want to be involved in an affiliate marketing company, that's not what I want to do. However, my wonderful intern does not give up. He took it upon himself to learn everything about Wealthy Affiliate. He presented his finding to me like this:

TQ, this is what Wealthy Affiliate offers you:

  1. A complete Hosting services for only $49 per month, this is the cheapest I can find. OK, very interesting. Then he said: TQ you know what, you can save even more if you pay for the entire year. It only cost us $29 per month. He even offered to pay for the first year, Very nice young man.
  2. He went on and said: TQ Wealthy Affiliate has a community that is full of young enthusiast online entrepreneurs that can learn from you.

After his presentation, I spent two days with him, so he can teach me everything about Wealthy Affiliate. I am very impressed with everything that Wealthy Affiliate offers. Earlier today I gave him the green light to pay for the whole year subscription. Yes, I gave him the money!!!

What do I want to share with you in this post?

A successful entrepreneur must learn to adapt and change. Do you remember my original business goal? I was searching for a web hosting company to promote my knowledge and experiences. However, my intern found Wealthy Affiliate. A completely different business service, but it is a perfect solution to my problems.

I promised Josh, my intern, that I will give him lessons on SEO, so he can share with the WA community as he helps me build out the website. Now you understand why a Lawyer joins Wealthy Affiliate.

Nice. In writing this short post about your experience and ultimately joining WA, it gives me more confidence that I am in the right place.

Now, I have been here for about 2 1/2 years and, of course, I know that I AM in the right place but, when a lawyer with your experience joins WA, it should give us all more confidence.

I don't know if there are other lawyers in our community but, your expertise gives WA a lot more credibility in that if there was something unethical going on, you would probably be the one to find it.

That said, you have given me an idea for another post on my website and I hope you don't mind if I use your site for some research. (PM me your site URL).

Moving Forward,
Wayne

Wayne,
Thank you for the kind words. I am using WA as a testing platform for my SEO practices. Most of the thing I put on my site is tested model for clients. I don’t know if it any relevant to your research. I am currently helping a young man to build his online business here in WA. His site is onlinebzdog.com. I don’t know if this helped.
Let me know what you have in mind for your research maybe I can get you the right materials.
Thx,

Hi! T,

I would like to welcome and applaud you for joining WA – the right place to fulfill our dream to build a successful online business.

As already known to most, it can be comfortably boasted of its unparalleled inherent training and support in the world.

To know each other further for mutual support, I would like to invite you to review my WA profile and posts as well as my sites which are listed at the right lower corner of my WA profile page. Of course, I appreciate you leaving comments and suggestions for better e-marketing.

Although I have not made any money yet, I am still determining to keep on working toward the much dreamed e-marketing success which will come if we:
- continue to learn from all available WA training,
- implement what we learn, and
- persist and persevere no matter what.

If you have any questions, just ask and, for sure, many WA supporting souls will extend their helping hands for you – that is what I have experienced.

All the best to your success,


James

Nice TQ, and Josh did not steer you wrong. This is really a great community to learn and grow. I found Wealthy Affiliate after doing the same as you. I volunteered my knowledge on diversity and planning. Kept me busy, but still wanting something more to challenge my mind and something I could do from anywhere.

Yes, the mind is a terrible thing to waste. Many retirees only focus on physical exercises for their body but forgot that they have to keep their mind active as well.
