It's Awesome to Feel Excited about IM Again!

Last Update: June 13, 2013
I just joined WA as a free member 2 days ago. I was really skeptical. I mean really. I thought it was just going to be another disappointing experience in my many years of trying to learn how to really build a successful online business. I know that my lack of success has to do with my own stumbling blocks... but I also know what it's like to try and learn and then be stuck because the training is incomplete, behind the times, or there's no one to answer questions.

I couldn't really believe that the owners would actually be interacting and answering questions all the time. I mean, who in IM does that?!

But already within the first 4 videos in the Get Started training I feel like I've been freed from endless keyword-demand-supply number crunching niche decisions, and what I've really felt all along could be true: all niches can be profitable, even the smaller ones that I think are fun and cool. I don't have to write about the latest smartphone or gas grills to be successful. I can wake up and actually have fun doing this because I am free to choose a niche I love.

I'm also so tired of shady techniques and GRQ that seems to be hidden everywhere. I love how WA is just entirely ethical, encouraging to newbies, and full of outstanding information. I wish I would have joined years ago. I can't wait to see what the next week, month, 6 months and year hold for me!

Great post, I'm really happy to hear that you are excited about IM again and I know that you can use this excitement and motivation to get a jump start here at WA! Hopefully you will have your website setup very soon and have a foundation to build upon as you continue through your lessons.

Choosing a niche you LOVE is ultra important! The more you love a niche, the better your website will be, the more helpful your content will be, and ultimately, the more successful you will be. If anyone tells you that you cannot be wildly successful in ANY niche, they do not know what they are talking about!

Have fun with your training and I look forward to hearing about how things are going in the coming days :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post, Carson. Every time I walk by my computer (I'm a SAHM, so time comes in little chunks during the day) I keep getting more excited. :-) I've struggled in another niche I'm not passionate about (with another web building system) for a LOT of years -- and have kept going because of all the time invested, even though it's making practically nothing. It's so freaking great to think about letting that just GO and focusing on something I love and could talk about for hours every day.

WA is already exceeding my expectations across the board. Thank you!

Hey Kim,

It's hard to break away from something that you have invested a lot of time into. Doing so has given you control and you can now focus on something that is better for YOU. I've worked with thousands of folks over the years who have got tied up in other programs that have not provided a true education. With the kind of education that folks get at Wealthy Affiliate, they can build online businesses in any niche, and earn revenue in many ways. We have many folks here at WA who own offline businesses who are working on their websites to increase business. Many folks who are like yourself who are interested in a wide array of niches and want to earn by selling products as an Affiliate. The options are endless when you have the knowledge of how marketing works, and how to apply it to your unique situation.

Hope you have a great day and that you find a few "time chunks" to work on your WA training ;)

I literally can't tell you how happy reading this post has made me, WillowKim :) I'm so happy that I could refer you to a place that you feel safe and comfortable. And as you've already noticed, Kyle and Carson are incredible. I wish you great success and can't wait to see more from you around the community!

Thanks, Ian, for your honest review that brought me here. I honestly thought I would try out the free stuff and be like, "eh, another guy marketing another mediocre course" -- I actually found your site searching for reviews of ANOTHER program which you pointed out the flaws of. I'll be joining Premium shortly and taking you up on your bonus. :-)

I'll look forward to it! Unfortunately I deal with harsh (even sometimes radical and insulting) skepticism because this industry has become so corrupt, even someone doing their best to be honest and help others gets bunched in with the bad guys. But regardless, I'm still here fighting the good fight and trying to help others (like you!) find a safe place to learn and grow as internet marketers :)

Great Post!

It's the community that makes this such an engaging process. Only been here 2 weeks myself but it seems I have done so much and interacted so much in that time it feels like months!

Glad to see you here.

I can also see how I might get a little "distracted" by the awesome community, LOL! Thanks for the welcome!

I am totally feeling you on this. I'm just starting with WA and already it feels like a breath of fresh air. I was really really skeptical also, because I have been inundated with so many offers that make promises that are never forthcoming. I just didn't want to sign up for one more thing. My inner knowing told me to take the plunge with WA, and it just feels right! I'm excited!

I know, right? I'm kind of blown away with WA and especially the community... and Kyle and Carson actually answering questions in real time. I think I'm tuning everything else out, getting off lists, and training here. :-)
