Why I Became A Premium Member The Day I Signed Up
Sometimes you just know when something is meant to be.
When I was in high school I got my first job. Bagging groceries at a grocery store. It wasn't a glamorous job and it didn't pay real great. $1.65 was the minimum wage those days. I worked hard and kept my money in a big mayonnaise jar in my closet. I couldn't be bothered with the banks. I wanted to keep my money close.
More than anything else like most teenage boys I wanted to buy a car. I didn't want to buy and old one and fix it up. I wanted a brand new car.
So, I worked every day after school and longer shifts on the weekends.
The day I graduated from high school I decided I'd count the money in the mayonnaise jar. Just under $2000.
I went down to the local car dealer and saw a couple of cars. One was a Cadillac and the other was a VW bug. Both were brand new! Believe it or not I really liked the VW bug. It was blue with light blue pinstripes, had dual exhausts, mag wheels and was the first year the VW put air conditioners in the car.
I saw it and I knew it was just meant to be.
So I went to my parents car and pulled out my mayonnaise jar and told the salesman I wanted to buy the VW. Out the door with taxes and license the car cost me a total of $1896. Yes cars were cheaper way back in the stone age. The Cadillac would have cost me a cool $6250. But I didn't want that big old gas hog. I mean gas was a whopping 23 cents a gallon after all.
Anyway I'm rambling, but the point I wanted to make was ... Sometimes you just know when something is meant to be.
The day I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate I was totally blown away with all the free training and the size and friendliness of the community. I was welcomed by many and jumped right into the getting started training. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was a place where I could learn how to make money online. And it was free. You can't beat that.
As I worked myself through the first couple of lessons I learned about the premium membership. All I could think about was if the free stuff is this great ... just imagine what the premium membership would be like.
I looked at the investment to be a premium member (yes I think of it as an investment not a cost) and it only made sense to me that I needed to make this small investment in my future. I knew it would pay benefits far beyond what I was paying for.
So about 2 hours after I signed up for the free membership I made the decision to be a premium member. I haven't been around all that long yet .... but I know it was the absolute right decision for me. Maybe it will be for you too.
Because sometimes you just know when something is meant to be.
