How My Time At WA Is Speeding By
The end of April 2020 means I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for 4 years. However, it will not become official until May. April 2016 was when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate purely by chance. May however, saw me make the decision to sign up as a Premium member. I thought it would be a good time to give you an update on how my time at Wealthy Affiliate has gone so far.
At The Start
Being a mum of three, my daughter who is 26, plus 22 year old twin boys. One of the boys has cerebral palsy and is unable to walk. When they were growing up, my husband and I both were working full time and therefore we relied on help from both sets of parents.
Even though we were lucky enough to do so and very grateful to them, I had always been keen to work from home or part-time so I was there for them as they were growing up.
Therefore, while off work in April 2016, I decided to look for ways to change my life for the better as well as it being easier for myself. At that point I was working on the checkouts at a local Supermarket where staff morale in the store was at an all time low. Everyone was complaining and the lack of communication between staff was making me want to do something else.
I had already been looking for new ideas like proofreading that I could do from home. I thought about doing Avon or Kleeneze, but as I do not like having to ask people for money, this was quickly forgotten.
So here I am now almost 4 years down the line. No longer working in the same place, but still looking for great working from home jobs I can do. I do have one idea up my sleeve that I am looking into though.
Discovering Wealthy Affiliate
While I was online one day trying to find somewhere that my friends and I could go on holiday, I searched “working from home” and the first thing to come up was Wealthy Affiliate. As I was not completely sure what it was about, I decided to do more research and after reading Kyle’s bio, I took the decision to give it a try, so I joined up in the April.
When I joined, I made the decision to do the Free Starter Membership only. As I had absolutely no idea what I should be doing, I chose the Bootcamp training. I quickly found out that with the Free Starter Membership, you lose all access to the Community’s help along with other benefits after the first seven days.
I did a lot of thinking before I took the decision to go Premium and was grateful to receive an email from Carson telling me that they had extended the lower cost of $19 for the Premium Membership. Although I joined in April 2016, I didn’t go Premium until May 2016. I can honestly say that becoming a Premium member has been one of the best decisions I made.
After becoming a Premium member, I received a lot welcoming messages telling me how great the Community was. You will always find members who are more than willing to advise you, plus helping in any way they can. They can do this either through the training posts they have created or by you simply asking questions.
There are members at Wealthy Affiliate who come from all over the globe. Therefore, you can be guaranteed to find someone who will give you an answer at any time of day or night. There is 24 hour access to Site Support as well as being able to contact Kyle and Carson by private message 24/7.
What I Have Discovered In My Time At WA
Even though I was previously a Personal Assistant, I had no idea what went on behind the scenes as there were people employed to take care of that side of things. As I have never had the need to build my own website, I did wonder if I would be able to do this.
Wealthy Affiliate’s training really is second to none. You can either follow the Certification Course or Bootcamp or even both if you want to. The Certification Course is suggested as the training for new members to follow. However, if you are not sure about what your niche will be (what your website will be focussed on), then the suggested training is Bootcamp. This training is more geared towards your website promoting Wealthy Affiliate.
There are live webinars held on a Friday night by Jay. If you miss the webinars, you can find them posted under live events and you can watch them whenever you want to.

Fast Forward To 2020
I will have been a Wealthy Affiliate Premium member for 4 years at the end of April. Even though I have learnt so much in the time I have been here, I still learn new things every day. A lot of changes have taken place within Wealthy Affiliate in the years I have been a member. There are always things being revamped to make Wealthy Affiliate the best. As well as being a great and safe place to host your website, there are always measures taking place to make sure everything is always up to date.
I currently have 2 websites hosted here at Wealthy Affiliate. You can read more about them below.
My website Become Wealthy Online is geared towards promoting Wealthy Affiliate. It lets people like yourself know how great this platform is, as well as all the great services they have to offer.
My website All Book Styles can be found on Google at Page 1, Position 1 where it has been now for a while. This website is about the different ways we can use to enjoy our books such as e-readers like Amazon’s Kindle and other devices. If you prefer to listen rather than read books you can use audio books. If you have problems with your sight, you can use audio books or braille. You can just choose to read a plain old paperback or hardback book.)
