If The Guy From Down Under Can Do This- So Can You!

Last Update: September 18, 2017

I woke up this morning, brewed a fresh cup of coffee, and opened up the WA dashboard as I normally do.

Only today, something special happened…

I made Vegas!

I’m super excited about this… to the point I’m actually a bit beside myself today :)

It’s hard to believe I’m actually going to meet some of the greatest entrepreneurs within the affiliate marketing world in Vegas soon. I mean, I don’t think this will hit me until I’m actually there. I can’t even imagine what I'm going to learn from these guys!

Not to mention, I’m from Australia (as you probably figured from the headline lol) so going to Vegas is going to be an incredible experience for me in and of itself. This will be my first time visiting the US and I'll probably let my wife tag along too, so she's pretty excited about it herself ;)

Anyways, since this is one of my biggest achievements online so far, I really wanted to share this with you guys today in the hopes it might inspire you.

I remember what it was like when I was just getting started, it's not always easy. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was never "easy" in the beginning. Like anything worthwhile, it took a lot of effort and determination to get to this point. But it was all worth it.

The first 6 months were the hardest for me personally. I was following the training and doing everything I thought I could be doing, but I still wasn’t making much money. I doubted myself and I wondered if WA really was going to help me. I also remember reaching to Kyle and Nathaniel for support and reassurance that I was on the right track.

Without fail, they answered my messages every time. I cannot thank them enough.

I remember they told me I just needed to keep on going, and my results would snowball. Their encouragement meant the world to me, and I trusted them because I knew they were honest people. So I kept on going and it turns out they were right!

All I did was stay the course. That’s my “secret”.

For those that don’t know, I was in construction before this. I had no website building or online marketing experience at all. I just followed the WA training and went to work. I persisted no matter what because one way or another, I was going to succeed. Rain, hail or shine as they say... nothing was going to stop me.

I joined WA on October 15th 2015, so it took me 23 months to get to this point. Each lesson I followed, each article I published, each time I pushed forward even when I wasn't sure it'd pay off- it was all worth it.

So the effort YOU are putting in right now IS worth it, even if you don’t know it yet. It’s all learning, and it’s all moving you closer towards your goals. Whether your goal is to promote WA and make Vegas or to be successful in another niche. You can do it.

In order to ‘do it’ though, you really need to believe in yourself. As an entrepreneur, believing in yourself is SUPER important because at times YOU are the only one who has the vision for what you will achieve. It’s great to have people in your life, and those within WA, who believe in you. For sure. This is inspiring and it really does help. But YOUR vision and where you are going depends entirely on you. So it’s important to keep your vision alive and always push towards what you KNOW you can achieve deep down.

You have everything you need to succeed right here within Wealthy Affiliate. So YES, you can do it. All you need to do, is believe in yourself and stay the course!

Cheers,

Tim

Young Timothy, I must have missed out on your blog when you first published it a month ago, but really my friend, from the bottom of my heart, very well done. In fact, I'm glad I read about your achievement. Your reminder to stay put and on truck, and hearing you say that if you could do it, so can everybody else, is all making it more real. And every so often I do need that kick up my backside, that morale booster, to keep me going in the hope that, one day, I shall get there too.

Thank you for your kind words Giulia, I'm glad this post was inspiring to you. It's great to achieve Vegas and other milestones, but there's also a very rewarding feeling when I can encourage others in some way, so your comment means a lot. And you absolutely can and will achieve your goals, there's no doubt about it :) Cheers

Tim, this is awesome mate! I'm well chuffed for you. Thanks for sharing your progress and for the inspiration. I am 12 months into my journey and I am earning now but not enough to go full time. I really appreciate the info from you. I've started following you too.

Thanks Craig, great to hear you're on track and earning! The way I see it, if you can make $1, you can make $10, $100, $1000, a full-time income and beyond. Well done. Thanks for the comment too, and I followed you back. Cheers

Hi Tim, congratulations on your epic and we'll deserved success. Your story is truly an inspiration. Out of interest, do u just have the one website, or have you achieved this goal through a number of different avenues? Cheers Karen
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Hey Karen, thank you for your kind words :) I achieved Vegas through one website, yes. I don't like to divide my attention between too many sites at once. I'll probably push into other marketing methods moving forward, and paid traffic, but I got this far on almost 100% organic traffic through my website. I just produced useful and relevant content, and followed the WA training. That's it.

Cheers

If you don't mind me asking Tim do you just have the one site focusing on promoting WA or do you have other sites in other niches as well?
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Hey Alan, yeah I've got several sites in other niches. I mainly focus on promoting WA though because I'm most passionate about helping the folks within this space. Not to mention I find it hard to focus properly on too many sites at once.

wow! Congratulations Tim... Your story is truly an inspiration to me..

I just joined WA less than 2 months ago and hearing your story I will be pushing even harder to make Vegas and meet you there personally..

I am sure you will have a great time in Vegas, I was there in June this year for a summit and it was mind blowing meeting some of the greatest marketers in the world.

Wish you much success my friend..

Best wishes

Wow! Your letter is indeed inspirational to say the least. It is difficult starting out here in WA. It is great to hear success stories like yours and that is what a beginner like me really needs to stay the course, as you mentioned. Have a great time in Vegas. You definitely have earned it.
Congratulations on getting there in 23 months.
