Why i left wa. and why i'm back better than ever!
On the last day of March this year, I canceled my WA Premium Membership. I had been a premium member for 3 months and I was really starting to get the hang of things. I had 3 sites running and things were really coming along nicely. I was applauded by community members on the amount of work I had put into Kyle's Super Affiliate Program. Everything was great right?
NOPE! Behind the scenes I was struggling financially to keep my premium membership. Unfortunately we had an influx of bills / household costs and we needed to squeeze every cent. So I made the decision to leave my premium WA membership for a little while.
Fortunately I had a plan already in motion and my sites were working well. All I needed to do as keep writing content to keep them growing. But I still had an issue... I still 't have enough extra money to keep my premium membership going.
Coming back BETTER THAN EVER!
What I did next, and the reason I am back here as a premium WA member today was hard, but it was totally worth it!
What I did made me just under $1,400 in 3 weeks - Which will cover my premium WA membership for the next 3 years, with some leftover to buy a few celebratory beers!
So what did I do?
I went out and decided to try and sell my skills as a freelancer. I asked all of my family and friends if they needed any help or knew anyone who needed any help... After about a week I had 3 different projects on the go. Mind you, I as putting in about 5 hours everyday outside of my 9-5 job, family commitments and my websites that were already running. IT WAS HARD! But it payed off and I am super pumped about it!
Why did I write this post? I wanted to share this story with you all because I can tell you from first hand experience that no matter how difficult things get financially, there is always a way to get back on your feet. A month ago I honestly felt that my WA days were over and that I would have to start searching the internet for information on running an online business... But here I am, back and better than ever.
Where to from here?
I am going to pickup exactly where I left off. I also plan to share some training - mainly in advanced wordpress development which I hope can be useful to the community.
As always please feel free to contact me for any assistance on anything related to Web Development!
Look forward to being back here at WA!
