Is Wealthy Affiliate For College Students? The Answer Might Surprise You

Last Update: January 03, 2018

Someone this week asked me 'Is Wealthy Affiliate for college students?'

My answer?

Wealthy Affiliate was created by two Canadian college students for people just like you looking to get started in the world of online business.

I'd even go as far to say college is the best time to start an online business. Mark Zuckerburg become a millionaire at 22, the founder of Snapchat was a millionaire at 23, a billionaire at 25. Virgin's Richard Branson made his first million at age 23.

I could go on ... but you get the point - starting an online business is a great way to not just help pay your tuition, but to launch your career as an entrepreneur while you have the passion, energy and drive to take massive action and make it happen.

College students have the advantage when it comes to online entrepreneurship

If you are a young person born anytime after the year 2000 then you've grown up around technology.

You never had to study computers or learn how to use social media - it's always been a part of your life.

This gives you a massive head-start over older, less tech-savvy Wealthy Affiliate members.

At Wealthy Affiliate you'll learn skills that will set you up for life

I'm talking about real skills and knowledge that you can use anywhere with an internet signal to earn money.

As more and more people choose the '4 hour work week' lifestyle, you'll not be bound by your geographical location, having to sit in rush hour traffic to your traditional 9-5 job.

Instead you'll be your own boss, working to your own schedule and having the financial freedom to create the kind of life you want for yourself.

So when people ask me if Wealthy Affiliate is for college students, I tell them a wholehearted yes. The sooner you start the better. My only regret is that I didn't start sooner.

The fact that we started (Carson and I) while we were both in college should be a strong indication that this is definitely for college students.

If you are interested in learning, doing something you love, and building a business in any niche that you want, WA is definitely going to offer you as much opportunity as you are willing to work for.

The sooner you can learn this stuff and how the online business world operates, the sooner that you can have a competitive advantage over most.
