My 6 months Of Success At Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: November 21, 2017

OK, So I have just received my badge for being premium for 6 months, doesn't time fly when you are having fun?

The badge is not really an achievement, but reaching this far is. As a complete novice in the computer world, I knew how to switch it on and ask Google to find stuff but nothing like this whatsoever, I mean I couldn't even spell website let alone create one, but I did. I created 2 of them actually and its all down to Wealthy Affiliate. the training, and the unbelievably patient people here within WA that put up with my constant questions (some of them obvious now I know a bit more)

What Have I Achieved Here?

Well I have learned quite a bit more than asking Google earth to find my house.....of all the places you can go in the world, why do we all want to see our own house when we can just go outside and look at...well....OUR HOUSE!!

In the 6 months that I have been here I have Got 2 working websites which has between them.......

AND RISING....Who knew I had that much to talk about!

Most of those posts are in the number one page on Google after following Magistudios training here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co...

It hasn't been easy at times but I always know that if I'm ever stuck with anything I will always find the answer from someone within Wealthy Affiliate and for that I thank you all.

I have been a Scaffolder in the construction industry for the last 20 years and never dreamed of working online, but now I cant think of doing anything else. Aside from the 2 websites that I have......

  • I have a book that I wrote about Weight Loss For Men for sale on Amazon and currently writing another one about Rugby Coaching which I have been doing for the last 5 years so I have some experience.
  • I have designed 8 T-Shirts that are being sold on Amazon.
  • I actually received my first email subscriber today after putting the form up last month.
  • I have created 11 pieces of training here at WA which actually has helped a few people. lol

And the sales are now trickling in.

I'm not saying that I'm rolling in the money but I know if I keep following the advice and training here I will be doing great in 2018.

All this has happened because I didn't quit when I wasn't seeing any results, I am really pleased that I stuck with it and I am planning to stay for the long haul.

To all the new people that are in exactly the same position that I was, even though you might not be seeing any progress in the early stages, it will come if you just stick to it.

HERE'S TO THE NEXT 6 MONTHS

Thanks for everything all, and I wish you all the best and success here at WEALTHY AFFILIATE

AMAZING!

It's great to hear about your achievements here on WA, and that you've been able to go from a total novice to the point where you currently are.

I hope you'll succeed here in WA, and I have to admit that your story motivates me to try even harder.

Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your journey so far, Shwni. And you're right - the 6 month achievement really isn't an achievement at all UNLESS you get in, get busy and produce a result. Like you have. Good on you. I love the WORK RESULT you have produced - products, training, content and now starting to build a list.

Way to go Shwni really impressive. I'm interested in the t- shirt what training did you follow or can you point me in a direction. Have been thinking about doing something in my niche but wasnt sure which way to go.

Thanks Tommo, All I did was to learn how to use photoshop. I had the ideas in my head but never knew how to get them down into a proper design. WA and the people here have given me great advice which I took on board and have learned soooo much. Thanks for your comment :)
