Where Have I Been For The Past Year Or More? (Details Revealed Inside)
If you have been following me at WA for some time now you may be wondering where I've been and if I'm still around. I apologize for being so inactive here at WA and failing to communicate with you guys but I've had a lot going on lately.
Trust me, I'm not going anywhere and I have still been working on my website and interacting with my referrals and other people on here as much as I could.
In my last blog post back in 2016, I told you guys that I had bought a new domain name, changed themes and was hoping to start a new beginning.
Well, even though things are still slow, I am seeing some improvements in terms of creating multiple sources of income and conversions on my website.
My traffic is up and down all the time which is normal I guess!!
Not only am I getting WA referrals and sales, I'm also earning commissions from a variety of different places (Finally).
I'll tell you guys more about that in my next blog post, OK?
So Where Have I Been All This Time?
For the past year, I have been dealing with lots of depression and anxiety due to my mother battling alzheimer's disease and having to take care of her all by myself.
Other than her having an aide for a couple hours a day, I was pretty much on my own to take care of her and I couldn't leave the house for more than an hour or 2 at a time.
At first this didn't really bother me that much, but after she started declining and her disease started progressing, this really started to affect me in more ways than 1.
Not only did it start to affect my health and well being, I also found it hard to focus on my business and give it the amount of time it deserved.
Here about a month ago, I was finally able to get a much needed break and I put her in respite care for 2 weeks.
Well, it seemed like that 2 weeks flew by quicker than ever and before I knew it, she was back home with me again.
Everything seemed to be going well at first, but less than 2 weeks later she had got sick yet again and I had to take her to the E.R.
To make a long story short, I had to permanently put her in the nursing home because it got to be entirely too much for me to handle.
Mom's aide which also happens to be a lifelong friend of mine that I've known since I was 11 years old told me how bad things would get but I was in denial the whole time and refused to listen to her.
As if that wasn't enough, I was also dealing with a few personal problems of my own along with my depression and anxiety.
Things Are Looking Up For 2018
Despite the ups and downs that I've encountered over the past couple of years with my business and my mother declining and getting worse, things are looking up for me.
Now that I have put my mom in the nursing home I can now focus on building my business and moving forward in this new year.
Can you guys believe it's 2018 already?
Pretty crazy if you ask me!!
Back in January I applied for and was accepted into Kyle's SAC and I have been working hard at writing at least 4 to 5 new posts a week and going through his amazing new training.
My Goals For 2018
Due to everything that has been going on for me over the past couple of months I haven't been able to post my goals here at WA for 2018.
Here are just a few things I would like to achieve this year
- Reach at least 300 sales and make Vegas in 2019
- Continue to build multiple sources of income
- Increase my traffic to 1k or more before the end of the year
- Reach out and help as many people as I possibly can at WA
No Matter What Happens, Giving Up Should'nt Be An Option
Over the summer this past year, things were pretty bad for me business wise and there were many times that I thought about giving up.
I was pretty upset that I failed to make Vegas yet again (2nd year in a row)
However, I have been here entirely too long to throw everything away that I've worked so hard towards.
Wealthy Affiliate has got to be 1 of the best things that has ever happened to me and I'm forever grateful that I stumbled onto this opportunity after reading Eddy With A Y's Insightful review.
This post is really overdue and I had planned on writing it a while ago but either never felt inspired or had too much going on with mom.
I'm going to try and be more consistent blogging here on WA as well as my website and I just know that 2018 is going to be my year.
I hope you guys are having a very profitable and productive 2018 so far and I look forward to hearing from you in the comments below.
