Why I follow You!

Last Update: December 11, 2015

If you read some of my tl;dr blogs, I'l make this one short and sweet.

The Short...

My short time on WA has taught me a few things:

I am following a leader to learn how to lead others to lead...

(Feel free to use this original quote).

The Sweet...

  1. Always FOLLOW someone who took the time to follow you--after reading their profile and a few blogs
  2. LIKE useful and interesting posts.

Michael

PS: if I left out any leaders who I should be following, please let me know. I would like to follow you so I can learn how to become a leader.

Great advice ... I've been doing this from day one, but it's cool that a pro like you says it's a good thing to do.

I always take the time to get to know someone who is following me. Sometimes this includes checking their blog list and stopping to reply on something that catches my interest.

I've always felt the one liner response ... thank you for the follow, I'm following you back added very little.

Thank you so very much, Michael
I love this place called WA and if I ever did decide to leave, I would think about you, GrandpaMike, Lowe, and too many more to mentioned and wonder why I was thinking so crazy and then keep my butt put!

With the help of great people like you holding the tether. Yeah!! I'll see you at the top!

The post was short, sweet yet actionable. It's so clear and simple?!! After reading this post, I took action and started to follow the people who took the time to read my profile and follow me. Honestly I was not following the people who took the time to click and follow me. But now I will follow accordingly! Thank you for encouraging me to be social and build a network.

Right on, there's actually a Portuguese saying that goes something like this: "tell me who your friends are, I tell you who you are".

Very well said, and I'm not surprised to see some of my most helpful leaders commenting beneath :) Shows me I'm in the right place you know? :)

LouieLuc Premium
WA is the right place for several reasons. This one here is just one more! ;)

I agree :) We all need mentors to succeed and once we have reached a certain level we then become the "mentor." Sort of like the student becoming the master.

At the start Kyle is our mentor and once we have reached a certain level here we then become one of the mentors within the community for starters.

LouieLuc Premium
I completely agree! :)

TechniSmart Premium
Thanks for that Anthony, coming from one in your years that's wisdom.

Sorry I did not see you commented here because I was busy helping out on the live Chat. Great to meet you though.

BushiAntz Premium
No problem :) There is always something new to learn and mentors can steer you in the right path much quicker than doing it on your own.

Your goal is to find a mentor that is doing 10x what your goals are so if you'd like to me $5,000 a month then find a mentor making $50,000.

I say that because they can help you achieve your goals, but then they can teach you the importance of momentum.

I love your attitude Michael and I have had the exact same mindset since joining this site.

Follow leaders for an example to develop your own form of leadership.

I'll be seeing you at the top man for sure.

Cheers,

So how does one find the top people to follow?

The first place I start is to check out the profiles of the top 200;
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank

Second, I ask questions on WA. Based upon the answers I get then I can get a feel for who might be helpful to me and my situation. The leaders tend to answer quickly.

Third, I like to browse comments to locate expertise.

Finally, you definitely want to be following me because I'm such a genius, LOL.
