Made My First Dollars While on Vacation

Hello Everybody...

You must be wondering why I have not been as active on WA as I was a week ago, but that's because I am vacationing in the city of love, Paris!

Yes! I'm in France with my husband!

This was a last minute decision and as such, did not have the time to prepare myself in advance (in terms of my writing schedule). Sadly, I have not been able to work on my website for the last week, except for one day, where I was able to publish a post.

I had the intention of working on my website almost everyday, but that did not happen; too busy with enjoying the nice weather we've had here and visiting!

I know this is kind of a late report because I made my first dollars a few days ago. But I didn't have the time to report in until now.

I made $47 ($44.96 after Paypal fees) my first time!

That's an incredible commission for me! I read that people usually make a few dollars at best their first time, but for me, it's awesome that I was able to make this amount.

This just goes to show that Wealthy Affiliate simply works! I have been here for 10 months and took things really slowly at first, but I wrote diligently the last 2 weeks before leaving on vacation and I made money while I was away! I only worked for one day while on vacation!

This is simply incredible!

Guys, don't give up! People usually give up within 3 - 6 months, but if you're able to get past that and write every single day, wornderful things will happen! Like it happened to me!

The feeling of finally making your first commission is too awesome to describe. The only thing that I can say is to keep going, keep pushing, keep writing and don't give up! I wanted so many times to give up, as my previous posts will tell you, and if I had, then I would not have started online!

This is definitely the start of something big!

I really wanted to report my first earnings, to show that this business is possible! So what, if it takes 2 months? So what, if it takes 2 years?

With this business model, you will get there eventually! That's all that matters!

Thanks for reading and I hope that my income report has helped to lift your spirit and has given you some renewed energy to keep working at it!

Aaww.. this is so good to know!

Phew! Can imagine how overjoyed you are.

Thanks for your words of encouragement, they really go a long way to boost my confidence in this system.
Giving up is definitely not an option.

Enjoy your vacation😉

Thanks Nnakife! Oh yes, I was really happy! After 10 months, it was time that I saw fruit of my hard work. I would have kept going regardless of whether or not I made money this month, but it definitely helped boost my confidence and my faith in this business model.

You're welcome! I shared this income report as soon as I could because I know that there are a lot of my friends on Wealthy Affiliate that need the boost. I know how I felt reading success post after success post; every single one gave me motivation to keep going.

I'm just hoping that this post and success story of mine is going to help others who may be feeling disheartened or who may be thinking of quitting, realize that with enough hard-work, time and patience, that success will happen!

Giving up should never be an option. If you feel tired and disheartened, give yourself a break because that might be all you need. Then come back, and work twice as hard!

Wish you good luck! Keep pushing!

Thanks you did really well..

Thank you for sharing and congratulations,
Well done

Wishing you more success

Thanks Jennifer! The feeling is indescribable!

I also wish you great success, as always!

Thank you and you are most welcome

Keep up the good work because you are winning. YAY

That makes it a double bonus of a vacation Rethana!

Exactly! Thanks... :)

Bonjour a toi :)
Paris est Tres Magnifique
Ok that's pretty much it for me lol
Enjoy and Congrats- Success and Pris all together :))

Bonjour Vicki... :) Oui, Paris etait vraiment jolie!

Haha! That's okay, at least it's something.. :)

Thanks a ton! And yes, Success + Paris was the ultimate best thing that could happen!

Se rien - je tres contente pour toi aussi :)

Way to go! Congratulations!!

Thanks, Steve! :) Appreciate it.

Congratulations on your sale! Reyanna!

Thank you John!

Many congrats on your first earnings, Reyhana! :) Magnifiquecent! Lol

Thanks Neil! It was such a great feeling to finally be able to make my first organic sale. It just proves that if one sale is possible, then 10 is possible too!

In the future, if I can make only 10 sales per day at $47 each, then that's $470 a day, which would be EXCELLENT income... :)

Congratulations, I wish you continued success.

Thanks, Mary! And same to you...

Paris! The city of light! Colette's mother was from there. Hope you are both having a wonderful and romantic time. It is a gorgeous place.
Toutes nos félicitations! $$$
Colette and Philip

Had a wonderful time! I'm back now and will be resuming working on the website tomorrow...

Merci beaucoup! :)

Wao so happy for you my sister. How this gives me hope for tomorrow keep up the good job.

Thanks, Fidelis. :) I'm back now and will be back to posting as of tomorrow. Hopefully I can produce better results..
