About TimMcKinlay
Joined October 2015
Hi, I'm Tim, a 30 something guy from Australia who went from working in construction to earning 6 figures per year with affiliate marketing.

I'm not a guru though.

I am just someone who believes you can achieve anything you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself and commit 100%. And this isn't just motivational speak, this is what I live by.

This is how I:

- Quit my old construction gig
- Became a "super affiliate"
- Met Kyle, Carson, Jay (and other cool people here) in person
- Work when I want, where I want, how I want- doing something I love

My "secret" to success:

- Follow the training, use the tools, ask for help when you need it
- Believe in yourself
- Never. Ever. Quit.

You can do this. The ONLY person standing between you and your goals, is you. And when you know this, I mean really know this, you will know that you have the power to choose how your story plays out.

Feel free to drop me a comment below, I'd love to hear from you! :)

Hi Tim! :) Cal here,
I just started my training this week, upgraded to premium and I'm stuck at the "create menus" part for my website, I can click on the menus tab, but when I go to the "posts," button for what components I want to incorporate into my menu, its grey-scaled out and I can mouse over it, but I can't click on it. :/ Any advice you may have is much appreciated.

Hey Tim,

Virginia here and I just wanted to reach out to you to say THANK YOU. I don't recall how our paths crossed but I will forever be grateful to you for bringing me to WA.

Since joining I have made a complete 180 in my personal life and life in general.

To me WA is more than a place you can get expert advice and a helping hand in becoming successful in the on-line market.

Doing the trainings and interacting with community has helped in my personal relationships outside of WA and it has helped me to re evaluate my entire existence in just a few months, for the good of course.

I am sure I would have made the adjustments eventually (maybe) but the timing couldn't have been more fitting.
Because of you and this community I have been able to fast track my goals due to the encouragement from you all.

That was key in it all, the encouragement that is, whether the support was genuine or done because that is something that is asked of us here, without it I probably would be in a way sticky situation.

Like for real y'all literally saved my life. I had almost given up on life and even though that is not who I am I had reached my breaking point.

I still am not where I want to be financially , as a matter of fact I haven't made one cent and don't know where I am going to get the monies for this months billing, but trust and believe I will figure it out as I have this entire time. What I do know is that my success will happen in time, and I will continue to strive to be better than I was the day before.

Iv'e been able to put a lot of things into perspective and it just overwhelms me with joy that I am finally finding the pursuit to my happiness I have dreamt of my whole life.

With that I will close until next time thanks again

Hey Tim. I had a really tough pregnancy and my baby is a month yesterday so it’s been a long two months, esp with sick kids. I now have 3 kids 4 years and under. I missed all the emails that my payment didn’t go through during Black Friday. Is everything restored now that I paid? Thank you for your help.
TimMcKinlay Premium Plus
Hi Anna,

Sounds like you've had your hands full, glad to hear everything worked out though :)

To be honest I'm not sure about your sites but they should be fine. It's my understanding that after 30 days of not paying your sites are removed from the hosting (ie they're not live anymore) but WA still keeps a backup of your site for up to 6 months. Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure this is the deal.

So what I would do in your case is contact support and see if they can restore your sites:


Either way they will be able to answer you as to what has happened/ what will happen going forward with respect your sites.

It's good to see you back and I'm here if you need me going forward :)

Thanks Tim!!

Tim, how do I start my web-site from scratch? How do I delete everything and start over. The image of the web-site is all important. Who wants to look at a blank page?
Making a "good" web-page should be priority one. All of the rest comes later.
Where do I find what I ma looking for within your training?
TimMcKinlay Premium Plus
Hi Daniel,

You may not have to delete the website, you could try installing a new theme: But if you want to start over, here are the steps:

1) Go here- https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

2) Click on the 'details' tab of the site you want to delete

3) Scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on 'delete this website'.

That's it. From here, just follow the process to start a new site using that same domain, which you can do on this page:


Hope this helps :)
Hello Tim!
Thank you for your welcome massage!

Congratulations for joining WA and finding out that that was one of the best decisions you could have made and what you have been searching for long trying to create an income online.

I have been also searching. Unfortunately unsuccessfully.
I have just joined WA and I am in the very beginning of the learning process.

Thank you for your kind offer to render me help with anything. I am sure I will need it. I am afraid, at the present stage, I am not fully aware what will be the essence of my work,but I hope very soon I will find out. Now I am concentrated on doing everything I am advised to do. The platform of WA is very rich.
Best wishes.
p.s. Trape is my users name. I will try to change it if I find out how.

Hi Sania,

Great to connect and looking forward to working with you :)

Here's how to change your WA username:

1) Click on your profile pic (top left)
2) Click on 'account settings'
3) Fourth line down you can change your username

Note that you can only change it ONCE though, so make sure you choose something you wanna keep.

Hope this helps and talk soon!
