Starting Again

Last Update: February 22, 2017

O.K. then, I have been here at Wealthy Affiliate for somewhere close to 10 months, I have not made a penny as yet, maybe it is the niche that I chose, I don't know, but the fact that there are an awful lot of successful affiliates out there means that I am not, under any circumstances going to leave Wealthy Affiliate. I really do love the idea of helping people and the fact that I can do it and earn money from it is wonderful.

Only problem is that my family are starting to get a little jealous of my laptop, they would much rather I sat and watched the television with them, so to stop my husband taking me to the divorce court and citing my laptop as the problem, I am going to have to limit my amount of time, to maybe one or two hours on the Bootcamp, which I am starting from the very beginning, and a couple of hours a day on research and writing posts/pages for my niche website, may not be the most successful one but it is what I love, which is why I am doing it.

So, yes my ranking may go down but I will be spending a little less time on here commenting on blog posts, but I am sure that as I work my way through the training again I will be popping in with daft questions.

I would like to say a big thank you to Jay and his webinar from Feb 5. It was watching this that made me realize I should start the training again and stop myself from being stuck like I was.

If you (as many others here) have joined WA to learn how to make money online, then your ranking shouldn't be an issue. I've seen many members zoom to the front, including some ambassadors, who have skipped steps in the training, have websites that haven't been monetized, and yet spend countless hours here, treating it more like a social media site than an online learning institution.

Sort of like "Facebook for entrepreneurs".

Your work-life balance, your family time, and your success as an an entrepreneur is much more important than your ranking or your social level here at WA. As long as you schedule SOME time for WA - be it an hour or two a day, your presence will still be felt here. The only thing that is not an option is to quit completely.

Now go spend some quality time with your family !

A wonderful way to put it, Hal, when I first started, the social side of WA was so much easier, and I was lazy. Then I made the websites, as they are about things that interest me anyway, cos Kyle said, I started to treat it like a hobby. Big mistake.

Now, as you say, if I can simply devote a couple of hours to training, one hour or so to my websites, and not give a damn about ranking, I am sure my family and bank balance will be happier.

Thank you for your very helpful comment, Hal, I am grateful:-))Steph

I fully sympathize Steph. Balance is so important. Slow down, but keep it all together. I have read from many people in WA that this can take one to two years. Some people seem to hit on a niche much faster than others. That could be because of new and exciting tech products. I don't really know, but Kyle says any niche can work in time with enough traffic. Carry on. Bob
