Well, just got my notification from WA that I have been here for one year. What a year it has been!

The last 5 months has been profitable for me to the point I actually quit my part time job and am now pretty much full time online apart from a few private students which I actually want to hang onto because they get me away from my computer which I think is healthy. This has been really fantastic and I just love being my own boss.

But, I am far from being ‘wealthy’ from my website, and in some ways I actually feel this is just the beginning of much bigger things. For example, there are new websites I want to make in new niches, as well as my own products that are information based that I want to create. I am in the process of creating one now actually and it feels exciting.

Although everyone who starts an online business is striving for that ‘laptop lifestyle’ due to the perceived ‘easiness’ of working from home, it is actually not as easy as it seems. You’ve got to have real discipline and routine when approaching your website and I will admit that staying consistent is still one of my biggest challenges.

It also feels as if the work is never done and can be hard to let go and spend some quality time with family and friends. This is crazy because the whole idea of living the laptop lifestyle is to get some time back- not to be less present to those around you. I am constantly assaulted by new inspiring ideas and I find it hard to relax sometimes because I just want to go and execute what I am thinking about.

It is also hard to avoid ‘shiny new object syndrome’ in that once your radar is set on having a successful online business, suddenly you see new tools and webinars and courses that you want to take because you think it will get you that little bit more ahead. But the truth is, if you keep taking course after course and looking at shiny new digital toy after shiny new digital toy it can be very distracting and you end up not actually doing much with the time that you have. So once again, balance is key.

There is also a certain anxiety that comes with fluctuating income where one month thousands of dollars come in, and the next maybe only $900 comes in. So, I will say, that if I did not already have assets behind me and a partner who works full time, I would not have so readily quit my day job. But I will also say that I am in a pretty obscure niche which has quite a select audience. Sometimes being in a competitive niche is better because there are more opportunities to make money. But my first niche is just the niche I had to get out of my system haha!

But, apart from all this, I still LOVE that I am in this online biz and I cannot imagine going back to another job or even starting a brick and mortar business ever again. I love the creative freedom of working from my laptop and there really is no looking back now.

I know I don’t check into the community much, but just wanted to update anyone who was interested-especially those who are new the WA. I know when I started I was really wanting to read blog posts of those who were further ahead than me and see if they were having success and whether or not all the work I was putting in at the beginning was really worth it.

But I can tell you, the work really is worth it and I think the most important thing is just consistency and following the training that WA offers and trust that this is the best platform to learn from in terms of having a blog that google likes which means more $$ for you. 🙂

When I came across Wealthy Affiliate I was searching for a way to learn more about working online.

I started working online 4 years ago and had to learn everything on my own. For 4 years I have been trying to figure out everything on my own for the 2 websites I set up. It has been hard to figure out the correct way to go about things.

When you are new to working online it is not easy to figure out what is white hat and what is black hat. I made many mistakes with my websites but slowly built them up and ranked them.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate 3 months ago and I have been completely blown away by what is offered here. I saw immediately the value in this program. The training and support offered here is more than I could have dreamed of. I can see I won’t be needing anything more than Wealthy Affiliate to run my online business.

Not just that, but I have built another 2 websites that are already ranking within the short space of 3 months. I have gained more avenues of earning income.

Wealthy Affiliate has completely changed my life in a few short months. I look forward to seeing what the future offers.

I am recently disabled and was desperately looking for something not only to fill my time but something that I could feel accomplished in doing something productive in each day, and lastly something I could make money with while staying at home.

I also needed something that was extremely flexible because for me every day is different with the level and placement of my pain. Sometimes I can’t follow my own thoughts, some days it hard to sit for a long time and a lot of times I have horrible insomnia.

I had tried out a few of the “work from home” scams out there and then became really critical of all of them because of the lack of money and integrity that some of these websites have. Then I came across Wealthy Affiliates.

I joined free just to take a closer look and before my free week was up I had made my decision to join. I was really amazed at everything they offer. From the training to the community involvement it was amazing. I won’t go into all the details because so many of them have been posted by other commenter’s here, but I and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to create a website and generate income from home.

My story is a little different than other members simply because when I discovered the WA back in 2012 I’d already been making a fulltime income online, and doing so as of 2005.

But I’m sure glad I did find the WA.

First off this is a true community, everyone that I have encountered is looking to learn and to share what they know so everyone can reach their goals no matter what they are. I’ve personally made some great friendships as well as some very lucrative business connections.

But beyond that, from the additional information that I have learned through the WA’s training and through other even more experienced members. The wealthy affiliate has helped me triple my income in the last year alone and I am on track to do it again this year.

And beyond all the tool, the training, resources, support and constant innovations and updates. No matter what your level of experience in the online world there is something for everyone in the WA.

As soon as you think you’ve learned everything or know everything about online marketing that’s when you’re going to get into trouble and see your business slide backwards.

I have zero intention of ever leaving the WA – simply because it provides me with the latest information of online marketing to keep scaling up my business each and every year and to stay ahead of my competition. And for the price of a yearly premium membership – that’s a steal.

I believe in you
