Does Your Sponsor Really Care?

Last Update: August 03, 2018

I'm Dying Man, Where Is My Sponsor?

Actually, I know where he/she is. But Does he/she not know where I am at?

Wait a second...he/she is my mentor. That's why I came on board.

Should he/she care to contact me? Should I care to Contact he/she?

"I get all kinds of help from the community, but I never here from my sponsor."

What's up with that?

Leave some thoughts, guys. This is important.

I'm seeing some dissention from newcomers because their mentors are not mentoring.

Hi Paul,

I think Haven hit the nail on the head!

Please explain.

Sorry, it is an Aussie slang saying when you think someone is correct. I say it all the time and it comes off the top of my head.

You just made me laugh out loud.
I can't wait to meet you guys in Aussie Land.
I'm going to take a bitcoin bet that you Aussies are living the best lifestyle.
Take my bitcoin and correct me if I am wrong.

With respect, mates.

All good Paul.

We luv' a beer and a laugh but unfortunately, we have had a very bad drought for quite a while and our farmers are doing it really tough, BUT our politicians gave 312 million dollars to Indonesian farmers over 4 years. It doesn't make sense. I am still scratching my head over that one.
AUSSIES are helping to buy food and other necessities for farmers struggling to feed their animals, as a horror drought takes hold.

How long has this been going on?
Here in Canada, the weather patterns have changed drastically over the last 20 years.

We no longer have the four seasons that that I can remember from my youth.

We now only have hot and cold.

Trying to understand the workings of politicians is an exercise in futility in my thinking.

Thanks for the feedback.

Here is what one farmer said: extract https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news
Lindy Piper, sheep farmer from Coolah, NSW

I have lived here since 1982 and there have been some very tough times and droughts, but this is by far the worst I have ever seen our farm. What concerns me most is the widespread nature of it – from where are we to source grain even if we can afford it? We had no harvest last year and none this year along with most other farmers in south-east Australia.

We, my husband and kids and I, have worked very hard all our working lives to improve the land and our sheep enterprise. It is very hard to see the state of the land now. Many farmers cannot take a break because of the constant feeding of stock and are pretty exhausted.

It's getting very bad. 5-year rain deficiency in some areas and NO rain at all this year in many farmland areas.

Here is another:

It's tough. Trying to keep stock alive. Watching as the roos in droves demolish what little feed we had tried to save for our stock. Hand-feeding, seeing lambs born into the dust, feral pigs cleaning up the sheep’s feed. Cows dying.

But the real challenges are the people challenges. Seeing neighbours struggle but unable to help them because you are trying to keep up with things yourself. And the paperwork. It took eight months for Centrelink to finally let us have farm household support allowance and meanwhile we had to go without groceries and use a donation of a food card from the Rotary club.

I think you bring up a very valid point and probably one that may need to be discussed further.

I heard from my "sponsor" twice, maybe 3 times: first, when I joined and second, when I went Premium. The 3rd time was when I reached out to him just to say hello!

I'm a firm believer that there's always a better way to do things. Perhaps this is an area that needs to be tweaked.

I'm sorry to hear that you feel neglected, Paul. Looking back when I joined, I was received with such welcoming arms and quickly formed a group of people of whom I could connect with on a personal level, that I never even missed my sponsor. I'm neither condemning nor condoning their actions; if I ever feel abandoned or neglected, I know it's due to my not connecting with the community.

If you haven't done so already, perhaps you can just send a quick message; not a rant, but just a quick "hello" and see if they can help you with something specific. Also, make sure to give them the benefit of the doubt, because you never know what's going on in other people's lives.

All the best to you, Paul.

You're so right Veronica.

What happened to me is very similar, however, at that time I didn't know, it's when I start the Bootcamp that I realize about the duties of the sponsor.

Fortunately, I start to interact with the community and find very kind and helpful persons.

There's always something new to learn here every single day.

Hi, Veronica.
Nice to hear from you again.

It has been a long time.

You, perhaps have interpreted my post/rant in the wrong way but your input is still truly valued.

I do not understand how your suggestions or recommendations can possibly help in this matter.

Bottom line...for someone that is struggling...where is my sponsor?

Kindest regards,

Paul.

Absolutely, Calvin.

Ideally, it would be great to have the person who introduced us to this business be there with us every step of the way, but that doesn't seem to be the case. But it's comforting to know that we have a whole community to guide us whenever we're lost.

Perhaps there's some miscommunication from both ends, Paul, but I'm pretty clear about what you were saying and commented as such.

Perhaps someone else's comment will give you the input you seek.

Hey Paul,

I can appreciate this post. I have heard from my sponsor a few times since I joined, and I actually really appreciate the distance.

Other times I have taken the plunge into an MMO opportunity, my sponsors have seemed utterly desperate to engage (read upsell), and it can be off-putting. So I actually enjoy the laid back approach from my sponsor.

I also think that because there is so much content and support to rely on at WA, that the sponsor is less important than in other MMO models.

I think it is important to connect and make sure your referrals know you're there, but I also think giving them space to work through WA in there own time has value.

Just my experience, but I prefer the low key approach, I think it further distinguishes WA from the BS out there.

Hi Raven.
As you know, I have always valued any contribution that you make into the platform here.

Your comment above is again encompassed with value. I probably should not have written this post but I did so based on the frustration of a person that is new to the platform that reached out yesterday.

He is completely frustrated and even the help from the community has not been enough and I'm not sure that his sponsor is aware of this.

What I am trying to say here Raven, is:

Hey , Raven,
You brought me on board to this most incredible platform.
Thank you. I've started and now I have also gone premium. Thank you again.

A few months in, I am having some challenges. The community can no longer help.

What should I do?

My question is,,,should I contact my sponsor. or should the sponsor contact me because he/she has actually been following me?

Paul.

Post Script:
How is the IKIGAI ranch coming along?

I think the post brings up an entirely valid, and important, topic, Paul. Kudos for bringing it to light.

Every person is unique in their approach to WA, and as a sponsor I think we do have a responsibility to keep tabs on our referrals.

That said, if you’re struggling, you should absolutely reach out to your sponsor. If you don’t reach out I’m not sure how your sponsor can have any insight into your struggles.

Best,
Haven

PS, I love Ikigai. We are dealing with some red tape issues at the moment at the farm, but with Ikigai in my corner, I am not worried!

I have not heard from mine either. We need to all be independent and responsible for our own. We have the community for any help if we get stuck but it would be nice to hear from our sponsor.

Hi, Mary.
Paul here from Canada.

I completely agree with you that we need to all be independent and responsible for our own. And we can rely on the incredible community that we have here to help us cross our hurdles.

Yes, would it not be nice to hear from the person that is making money on us being here from time to time, even just to say hello?

It is a very frustrating thing for many and the fact that many sponsors are not being proactive with their recruits is going to become a damaging factor for the platform here.

Would love to here more from you.

Paul.
Post script,
I read your profile and would be honored to follow you if you accept.

Have you had an email from them?

Hi, Jennifer.
Even though he/she has my email, no.

I have not had any feedback other than the automated feed backs leading up to 'Premium' Membership.

I did hear back one time through PM if I would recommend a site that he/she was working on.

I have almost forgotten who my sponsor is. Perhaps due to the Community support here.

There is in my mind something wrong with this picture,

Paul.

Hi Paul, There is some good advice here.

Personally I don't even think I have a sponsor, but I ask for help where i can get it, until I get the answer.

But I do here you when you say that it could be nice if you heard from them.

Like mentioned in comments if you don't mind maybe you could reach out to them and voice your concerns in a private message conversation and take it from there.

If this is something you would rather not do. You have an offer on the table from VitaliyG to help you through.

You also have the rest of the community including myself to help you.

The choice is yours.

But please do not let this spoil you experience, as mentioned we do not know what they are going through.

So here is the question

how can we help you?

Hi, Jennifer.
If you do not have a sponsor, then how did you arrive here?

The only way to get here is through sponsorship or affiliate marketing. You only have one of two sponsors....

Someone you kind of know or Carson & Kyle.

I'm almost sorry that I brought this topic up/ Way too many responses to respond to.

Leave me your further thoughts.

Paul.

Hi Paul,

This is how it works here, everyone wants to help.

I found Wealthy Affiliates when i was researching another site, I read a blog post and clicked the link. Maybe the blogger that I click the link on is my sponsor but to be honest i forgot who that is because i was reading a lot of different blogs on that day.

What are you expectations?

To be honest I am not sure what you are expecting, Please enlighten me.

Regards

Jennifer

Hi Paul
I have just read your profile in its fullness,
You have been here since 2016 so why raise this question NOW.
I am confused?????
Reply
PMindra Premium
Hi, Jennifer.
I think it has to do with 'misrepresentation.'
I see many reviews and promotions of WA that offer one-on-one coaching to get people on board.

I have never questioned the benefits of WA. I am however questioning some ethics being used.

Does this make any sense?

Paul.

Jadatherapy Premium
Yes i get.

I call it false advertising
Reply
PMindra Premium
That's what I mean, Jennifer.
False advertising only gives WA a potentially bad reputation.
Thank you for taking the time to comment and respond.
