End of an amazing journey

Last Update: November 22, 2020

Hi to all WA Rock stars!!!

I feel like the little girl in the photo above today and it has taken me a lot of courage to write this blog.

Yes, I am leaving WA....

I have dedicated 2 1/2 years to all that WA offers and have enjoyed all the wonderful learning here and ways to do things online and I will be forever grateful to this platform.

In August, I moved to another property and have been busy with things here in my new place which is wonderful however the cost to live here is way more than my previous place and something has to give.

Unfortunately it is WA as I just can't afford the $299 for Black Friday or the $74NZ each month to keep going so after a month of trying to figure things out, I have had to make this decision.

I am leaving Wealthy Affiliate with sadness in my heart.

You see...

I didn't just dip my toes in to see what it was like here, I became fully immersed in all WA offers and I feel so blessed and so thankful for the entire journey.

I worked diligently from the get-go and didn't stop. I think in my 1st year I had 1 week off and in my second about the same. I was 100% dedicated to learning and building and have had some incredible moments along the way.

It is great people here too. Always lending a hand to those who need it and I have connected with some truly great people.

Thank you to all of you who have supported my journey.

Thank you, Kyle and Carson for having this brilliant platform to learn it all.

I have been no.4 as an Ambassador and also became an Ambassador not so long ago for the 2nd time,through my dedication to helping people in the community. I will miss this.

I have 2 websites: 1 is MMO and have over 200 posts so if anyone is interested in it, please pm me.

I also have a Personal Development site

Before I go, if anyone would like to stay in touch outside of WA, please pm me and I'll send you my email address.

I am feeling quite tearful today. WA has been my world for the past 2 years and I know I will miss everything here but life can be challenging and it has to be.

Go well my friends, be awesome and grow success for 2020 and beyond.

Thank you and remember:

Hi Vicki,

I'm so sorry to learn that you are leaving WA. You will be greatly missed. I haven't been all that active in WA for the past year, but I always knew you were there. A special NZ member!

I absolutely understand your reason for leaving; maybe you will return one day.

I wish you the very best of success with your business and all that is important to you. If you are still in Taupo you have the most wonderful surroundings to add joy to each day.

Sending kindest thoughts.

So saddened to hear this Vicki but as I always say, one door closes.... etc..... You have been an amazing support to not only myself but to hundreds if not thousands of others (& not just at WA). I wish you well in whatever (ad)venturous road you will now take. Thank you. Love Linda

Hey Linda. Thank you so much.
I love helping people and will continue with my coaching business now I'm settled into my new home.
Sad today and wishing it was different but accepting what I can't change.
Onward we go and thanks for always being there for me along life's journey
Love Vicki

It is definitely not nice to see you leave this way, Vicki. It is implied that you have really made no income these 2 years despite the efforts and hard work you have put into your websites. However, one thing is clear - you have been of help to many on this platform. I do believe you will reap the rewards somehow someway. Please keep well and be blessed.

Hi Debbie
I have made money but life has been challenging financially for the past 4months and now irs time to get moving again with my biz.
Helping people is my purpose and passion and coaching is my path so will continue to build and I know all will be ok.
Thank you my friend
Hi Vicki, I am a newbie here and considering signing up, but from what you are saying, you have been here 2.5 years and aren't making enough money to cover the monthly costs, is that right? Is it really that difficult to make money doing internet marketing?

Either way I wish you all the best for the future, I see from another post you are in New Zealand. Lovely country, I visited once and thought it was beautiful. All the best.

Hi Simon
I have made.money and have easily.paid for my membership.
Moving house and not working for 3 months is why I can't continue not because of anything here and if you learn well and work hard consistently you will do great.
Wishing you all the best

What to say?

It is not often that I am without words to express my sympathy, or empathy, I am grief-stricken, to read your message to the WA community and to hear about your departure from it.

My first year here was spent reading every blog that got submitted to the platform (most were all WA or business-related back then).

I was like a sponge, for the first six months, trying to absorb anything and everything I could that would possibly give me some sort of advantage over my competition.

Your blogs, were just some of many that helped and kept me motivated. I will miss reading those articles from you because in each one I learned a little something about the business or myself.

So for that, I would like to thank you for sharing your wisdom with me. Your contributions to this community, since it has shifted and slowly becoming another Facebook, will be greatly missed, especially, by me.

I hope that your future, whatever it might turn out to be, is enjoyable for you and possibly profitable in some manner or another.

Good luck and I wish you well in everything you do.

Living Life Large,
