Wealthy Affiliate has changed my life!
'Wealthy Affiliate has changed my life!'. This is a bold statement to be making at 9am on a Friday, however, it is true. Now the first question that many would ask at this point is, 'How much money have you made?'. My answer would be: £22.00. Now to most that would seem like nothing for six months work, however to me it is the most rewarding £22.00 I have earned in my life.
Three years ago, I had just graduated from University, after returning to get my degree at 41, I knew I wanted to write and continue my research. I even set up a blog with wordpress and started building an outlet for my writing. I set up Facebook pages and Instagram etc. But those accounts and blog, went nowhere. Not a single person visited, as I had absolutely no idea how to build, market and make a website a success, so I abandoned the whole idea.
At the time of graduating, I had a strong desire for freedom from the employed life. I had loved the University lifestyle and the flexibility it gave me with spending time with my children. I wanted to be in control of my intellect, time and energy, abundance, and so took a leap into the world of self employment.
Whilst this proved very rewarding for time and energy and happiness, it proved to be incredibly unsuccessful in the abundance department. What I discovered is that the 'way' I chose meant I was pretty much employed, but with a quarter of the salary and no benefits. This led me to break down to the universe, with a statement 'there has got to be a better way'.
I remember as if it was yesterday, the day I found Wealthy Affiliate. I arrived incredibly sceptical and viewed the whole thing with fear and doubt. A friend of mine had gone with another affiliate marketing site and had paid over £2000.00 to do their training. However, I figured I would give the free trial a go, I had absolutely nothing to lose!
The whole time I was waiting for the up sell or the hard sale to go premium. waiting for the emails to offer exclusive levels for more money. Instead, what I got was an amazing amount of lessons and knowledge free of charge. I was hooked, I wanted to learn everything I could and after a few weeks I realised this wasn't a scam, and I wasn't going to be asked to upgrade to higher and higher levels of membership, so I went premium.
As a self-confessed technophobe, the thought of building websites or getting ranked and monetising, were all very daunting. However, WA made the whole process easy to follow in bite size, step by step lessons.
Since then I have been very privileged to have learned so much, to have my first website that is visited by people and is providing an average of 25 Amazon sales a month! and to be part of one of the most helpful and supportive communities I have ever been part of.
Wealthy Affiliate has changed my life, because it has made my dreams a possibility. I dream of having multiple websites, writing a book, continuing my own business, and one day traveling and truly living the laptop lifestyle. I would also love to collaborate with some of the wonderful people have met here. It has made the possibilities of my life unbounded and unlimited. WA has provided 'the way'.
I now love my life (even the tough times), because I know that they are just preparing me for the greatness along the path. My goals are big and my dreams even bigger and I look forward to WA continuing to help me achieve them.
I thank all those who have connected with me so far, and I wish you all well on your journey's
