Hi guys n' dolls, I'm Steve and am over in the Staffordshire region of the UK. Today I make a start with 'Wealthy Affiliate' which will hopefully aid me in achieving furthur financial goals. On the surface I know what it's all about, but don't know the details, how it works or even a starting point.

I've dabbled in HTML and website building many moons ago in college so am both rusty and haven't got a clue to this day either. After a little research online I chose 'Wealthy Affiliate' as it seems to walk you through the education and process by the hand in small steps.

I believe in myself, my skills and abilities and want to better myself and my future ahead. Live a little more happier, comfortable and free of financial worry. I like to think that I think outside the box, don't like conforming to a regimented daily lifestyle that people are use to and wish to ideally work from home, earn passive income and have more time to enjoy what is and who are around me. It's these drives that have got me into e-commerce and selling items online, forex trading, self education, online courses and knowledge and basically making use of the internet connection for monetary gains.

I've always been mainly the indoor type, so it's not surprising that my hobbies, interests and passions are with multimedia and all things "geek" or "nerd". I enjoy video gaming, card games, board games, home theatre and movies - of course I go out still and enjoy a beer or two but would rather have a good cup of tea and a biscuit at the side of me, gamepad in hand.

I'm a hard working individual, thorough and meticulous for detail and strive for perfection and completion. One of the turning points for me making moves like this today with 'Wealthy Affiliate' as well as seeking other opportunities I've mentioned above was because of a board game called 'Cashflow 101' under the 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' brand and designer Robert Kiyosaki which gets you to realise that you will be in a constant "rat race" for life unless you break free, seek opportunities, better yourself, make a passive income and think outside the box. Getting money to work for you and not working for money!

Excellent Stephen, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Stephen! :)

Hi Stephen,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

Your first task will be to pick an affiliate niche you are interested in. That just means you need to decide what your blog and online business will be about.

To help you out with that, I created a short eBook called 659 Profitable Niche Markets. You can read it here:


Just click the book cover on that page to start reading. You will also find a short video there on the "Big Picture" of affiliate marketing.

Of course Wealthy Affiliate covers those topics also. The eBook and video are just a bit of extra help if you are interested.

The WA Affiliate Program

Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest. Beyond that, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:


With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member.

Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I suggest the following steps to get started:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website.


The fastest way to get your questions answered here at Wealthy Affiliate is to take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

These ways are faster (than asking an individual person) because you are more likely to connect with people that are actually online here at WA at the same time you are asking your questions.

Even before asking however, the search bar at the top of every page in Wealthy Affiliate is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most.

WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers,

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Good evening Brad,

Many thanks for the insight into WA and access to the e-book. Tonight and specifically in the last hour were my first few steps, reading text and watching videos. I'm totally new to this and want to soak up everything at a very slow pace and already have got stacks of things to do, read and watch. Exciting times.
