What Are You Doing With Your Life? – Is Affiliate Marketing For You?

Hello! I was asked a question this week and it made me think. Have you ever changed directions with your life and all was going well until someone questioned what you were up to? Don’t get me wrong; nothing is wrong with someone caring about you and asking how you’re doing. What I’m getting at is this: perhaps you’ve just never really thought about the answer to that question or how someone might respond to the answer.

What Are You Doing With Your Life?

If you’ve been following me, you know that I’m newly homeschooling our kiddos. I was a teacher for 12 years and we’re changing directions. It’s working well and we’re loving it. However, some people on the outside might be wondering why we even made this change. I’d love to share with you what I’m doing and why we love it.

A Personal Choice

When answering to friends and family, they’re a little surprised, but understand. They know that we’ve wanted to home school for years. What throws them into a tizzy is how we plan on making it on only one income. I understand. Kind of. There’s a little they don’t know…yet.

This Is A Shocker

Affiliate marketing. I mention it and they’re confused. They’ve never heard of affiliate marketing and they don’t understand. I share with them my plan and how eventually, we won’t have only one income; we’ll have two. I haven’t struck gold yet, but I’m working everyday on laying the foundation for success.

How Does It Work?

If you’d like to know the story of how I began, check out this post. In a nutshell, I spent hours, no days, searching for online supplemental income options and came across a company that I have learned to love. It’s provided me with ways to begin a website to jump start my buggy on the path to blogging to financial freedom.

What I’m Learning

is that anyone can be a successful presence online. It does take effort, dedication, and time. Did I mention time? That’s a big one. You’re going to need time to put into beginning your online journey. It’s not different from any business startup. It takes a load of commitment. Also, blogging, affiliate marketing, and things related to making money online do not make you a millionaire overnight. I knew that going in, so I haven’t been disappointed with my outcomes.

Just The Opposite!

Because I knew that this was not a get-rich-quick plan, I never set myself up for failure. Instead, I have found a platform that is willing to host and help with the creation of my websites. I’m four weeks in to my membership and have accomplished more than I ever thought possible. I’ve got two websites up and running with daily traffic. I am creating new content several times a week. I’m learning a vast amount within the platform and being a part of the amazing community has been nothing short of a blessing.

Still With Me?

Good! Are you curious yet? The name of the company is Wealthy Affiliate. They, unlike many, offer a free 7-day membership. If you’re wondering, I signed up, created my first website, went through some training, and was hooked on the program within the first day. I didn’t even wait until my 7 days ran out. I signed up for a Premium membership within the first couple of days, and have been working daily on my (now two) websites.

Short-Term vs. Long-Term

To the folks who may be confused, let me break it down more. Wealthy Affiliate is an online company that offers a diving board for newbies like me (or maybe experts like you) to learn how to best begin an online marketing business. For me, it’s in the form of blogging and affiliate marketing. If you’re looking for more information on affiliate marketing, check out my post about it here. My short-term personal goal within Wealthy Affiliate is to learn as much as I can. The training available is second-to-none. I’ll never run out of tutorials, videos, blog posts from other members, etc. The opportunity to learn is never ending. On the other hand, my long-term goals within WA is to build upon my learning and create successful websites that are traffic-driven and produce revenue.

Not Happening By Tomorrow

I’m not making millions in 24-hours. I know this. If you’re honest, you know it also. There are companies out there that ‘claim’ to make you rich in just a few steps. Please don’t fall into that trap. They might even tell you it’s free or that they’ll do all the work for you. What I’ve learned is that those things just aren’t possible. It isn’t reality. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to build upon a solid foundation that will set you up for nothing but success, if you’re honestly and diligently working at it. I have foreseeable goals; goals that won’t be attainable unless I put in the necessary work. I’m committed to doing just that. I’ve seen the successes of others within the WA platform and I’m convinced I can be just as successful as they are. The only thing separating their successes from mine is that it took me until a month ago to join the program.

Time Out Quick. You Need To Read This!

I would be doing you a huge dis-service if I didn’t just quickly let you in on one of Wealthy Affiliate’s best kept secrets. The online community! There are over 1.9 MILLION people involved in WA and its community. I’ve never felt so welcomed and supported. You’ll soon find out how helpful the members are. I’ve met no one within this community who is keeping his successes to himself. On the contrary, everyone is willing to SHARE how they became successful. That sounds crazy, right? Wealthy Affiliate members go above and beyond helping others, especially newbies. Just ask a question and you’ll receive more answers than you know what to do with! 🙂

You’ve Tried Something Else, Maybe Several Somethings.

What Makes Wealthy Affiliate Different?

The Facts You Shouldn’t Ignore

Here’s the deal. I’m not here to sell you anything. Simply, I’m offering you an option to gain some knowledge. Free knowledge is difficult to come by, especially today. However, Wealthy Affiliate allows you to access the foundation-building steps for FREE. There’s no harm in just checking it out. In fact, if you don’t just check it out, there is potential harm there. You’ll never know what you’re missing. So, for the love of all things, please just head over to their website and give it a look-see. If you’re interested at all in building a business online with the opportunity to be your own boss, this is for you. At the very least, spend 5 minutes clicking around. If you’re not interested, you’re free to leave. I promise.

    I liked your post. I’ve been in WA for 8 months. I learned a lot, considering that I started from 0. I keep learning, I think I don’t have enough physical time to learn everything that is offered. I’m sorry I didn’t discover WA any sooner. But as the saying goes: it’s never too late. lol. There are many opportunities in WA that are waiting to be discovered.
