Wealthy Affiliate is Lobster

Last Update: August 20, 2018

Yesterday, I enjoyed a whole lobster all to myself. This is significant because I only do it once a year. I have digestive issues and have to be careful what I eat.

But I LOVE lobster. So once a year, when I'm doing well, I buy one whole lobster and eat every bite. It's divine! Any consequences are worth it.

You may be wondering what this has to do with Wealthy Affiliate. I'll tell you.

These days, when I engage in my annual lobster ritual, I have to go find a store or market and buy one. I get a cooked one because I don't like doing it at home. Yesterday, I talked the guy at the local seafood market into selling me one he was saving for the restaurant.

However, back when I was a child, we ate lobster for FREE, and didn't give it a thought. I lived in a rural part of Atlantic Canada and there weren't any restrictions back then.

My dad had a small boat and went out and caught some anytime he felt like it. During the warmer time of year, we often enjoyed them. That was in addition to wild game, other fish and seafood, fresh organic vegtables, and loads of wild berries.

As a child, I didn't realize we were feasting on delicacies, even though we weren't materially well off. At that time, I didn't get my dad's joke after every meal, "I wonder what the rich people eat?"

I was very naive at that time about the bounty we enjoyed for free, and I didn't realize that many people didn't have access to that kind of food, or that they had to pay substantially to get it. In my world it came with sweat equity, and for me as a child it seemed free.

Now that I know better, I can appreciate how priviledged I was at that time.

The connection to Wealthy Affiliate?

I've been around here for just over a couple of years. Unlike many members, I came in the front door without doing much searching around. I hadn't spent any time trying out other online training programs or platforms. I had no idea that people are getting scammed and ripped off with expensive upsells all over the place.

Basically, for that first few months, it was like when I was a child. I was eating lobster again (practically for free), and not knowing that others out there are paying far more for something not even close to a delicacy.

After I was here for a while, I started noticing all of the stories and comments about what others had gone through before they found Wealthy Affiliate, and what a huge difference they found here.

Yesterday, while enjoying my meal, I realized we are all eating lobster here, while other unfortunate folks are out there paying a fortune for scraps.

Enjoy the feast and count your Wealthy Affiliate blessings. I do!
