Thank You Wealthy Affiliate
A few years ago - I looked into Affiliate Marketing, an online Home Based Business, a Work from home opportunity and whatever else I could think of!!!
I have been rather blessed in a way as I have been "semi retired" for a few years. I have recently turned 53 years old but when I hit the big 40 I decided to "slow down a little!!!" I have a few rental properties therefore don't need to hold a traditional full time job for an income.
After looking online for something to occupy my time I came across this company and the promise was just too good. I joined and thought I would make a little bit of money while learning about Affiliate Marketing and keeping my mind active.
Unfortunately, all I got was a basic membership into something that was completely useless. And this didn't come at a cheap price - around $1000 per annum. There were upsells around each and every corner. I soon figured out that this was a scam and decided to cut my losses short and quit.
I became so negative towards working online that I took on a bricks and mortar business. The business went from closed down premises to being a very successull food business. The clients were truly awesome and the interaction with them was really great however the stress associated with running this type of business were far too great.Early morning starts, late night finishes, wholesalers to visit etc.etc
To cut a long story short, the business became extremely successful and busy.It was obvious that this was an excellent time to sell out and move on. Sold out successfully and turned back to the online world to find something to occupy my time.
This time I feel blessed that I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I haven't earned a million!!! a thousand or even a hundred yet!!! just a few measly dollars, however I am thoroughly enjoying the training, education, the community and knowledge provided here. I have a long way to go and a lot of learning to do yet - but this time I am absolutely certain that this is the last time I will be looking for "the next thing to occupy my time"
Thank you Kyle and Carson and the very generous help and support of the Wealthy Affiliate Community.
