What is a Rat Race?

“Name your price” this is a sentence you hear a lot of movies. Haven’t you seen a movie like that? A movie like ‘An indecent proposal’ is even based on this theme. What you hear a lot is, that most people have a price. Have you?

According to Robert Kiyosaki, most people have a price because of two human emotions; fear and greed. The books of Robert Kiyosaki can be bought at AudiobooksNow.com. Fear is our worst enemy. Or like .. said, “The greatest fear is fear itself”. There are six types of fear that we deal with. Please read my post about them.

The fear of being without money and greed keeps us is in a Rat Race. What is a Rat Race? Is a Rat Race bad or good?

Rat Race

What is a Rat Race?

The fear of being without money makes us work hard for a paycheck. When we get that paycheck our desire or greed makes us thinking about all the things we could have or buy. Imagine you alone win a $10 million lot. What would you do with it? You will know, won’t you? Houses, cars, clothes, college, travel, and so on. Ok, a paycheck is not that much, but the first paycheck you received sure felt like that.

With accepting that paycheck and going back to work again you started a pattern that is set for life. You get up, go to work, pay bills; get up, go to work, pay bills. Sounds familiar?

If they offer us more money, our fear and greed will keep us in the pattern. It will keep us in the Rat Race.

We will continue the cycle by increasing our spending because we got more money. In a year we will get a raise. At the end of the year, we will get a bonus. All of these keeps us in the pattern, in a Rat Race.

Are people happy in the Rat Race?Insomia

Most of the time they are not, but do not see the Rat Race as the problem. As mentioned earlier our emotions of greed and fear control our thinking. Most people are afraid of being without money This is why most of us get up in the morning and go to work. Is it because we love it so much? Most of the time it is because we are afraid of being without money if we do not work. We hope that when we receive the paycheck it will soothe the fear. But it doesn’t. So we go to work so next month we will be safe. This pattern, a rat race, will go on and on; working, earning, working, earning, ….

A lot of people can not even sleep because they are thinking how to get through the month. Some people even worry about how to go through one single day. A lot of worries caused by the fear of being without money. Do you know how many people cannot sleep at night? And most of them is because they do not know how to pay the bills.

Will being rich solve the problem?

No, it won’t. Will be poor than solve the problem? No, it won’t either.

Being poor for sure will not help.

Being PoorYou will need money to pay for surviving every day. The fear of being without money is enormous. Poor people run to money whenever it is waving at them. Sometimes it even makes them do things for money that you can not tell your mom about.

 

Middle-class people accumulate more debt as they earn more. Because as they become more successful they are going to spend more and most of the time it will be more than they can afford. More money, more spending. When they get a pay raise, it allows them to borrow more money. Most of the time they buy doodads. Doodads are personal items that cost them more money all the time and not bringing any money in. Things like newer cars, vacation homes and boats. Their wage is used to pay current expenses and paying off all those debts.

Middle Class
Because of fear, many rich people are rich. They think that if they have a lot of money they cannot be poor. So having a Rich Peoplelot of money will eliminate the fear of being poor. This is the very reason that now the fear of losing it all comes into play. They have a lot and want more, they keep on working although they are filthy rich. Imagine they lose everything. What would their friends say?

Can you get out of the Rat Race?

Can you control your emotions of fear and greed? We all have the emotions of fear and greed. It is important however not to give in to them and to be able to delay your reaction to them and think. It would great to use the emotions to our advantage. To be able to do that we need information and education. Not the one they learn you at school. I am talking about financial education.

Financial education will learn you how to put your money work for you and not the way around.

Do you like the Rat Race or do you want to get out of it?

Spending your life living in fear and never exploring your dreams is a way to live.

Waking up in the middle of the night, sweating and terrified about paying bills is another way to live.

Living a life that is dictated by the amount of your paycheck is also a way to live.

For me, none of the above is a way to live. I have been there. I know the feeling of each one but I decided that it is not enough for me. I really want to enjoy life. There is so much I want to experience and it is possible.

Financial education gives you ways to get out of the Rat Race. Learn how to control your greed and desire and learn how you can earn money in different ways than 9 to 5 jobs.

Start earning more money differently. This can be done for example by writing a blog or by Forex Trading.

Make a choice and live the way you want!!

Live your dream!

Start Blogging – for beginners

Blogging Word Cloud
Once I asked my daughter what she wanted to do later. She said Blogging. In my time the most common answer would have been a teacher, accountant, lawyer, nurse, or police.  At first, I was asking myself if you could make a living from it? How does that work? So it was time to update me.

So,

What are blogging, a blogger, and a blog?

Since 1990, people have been using the world wide web for regular recordkeeping of things that happened. This was the creation of a web·log. Now we have shortened the word to blog. So to blog means writing regularly on a website about things that are happening.

So a person that is a blogger, is a person that has a blog. In other words that person is blogging.

Bloggers write regularly about an event, topic, situation, something they love. There are people blogging about the music they love (everlasting-soul.com) or about yoga (https://yogalivingtoday.com) or about sneakers (https://sneakersontherun.com) and it is a never-ending list.Blogger making a blog

Time passed and guess what? Mom became a blogger before the daughter. I write about Affiliate Marketing (https://start-your-online-business.com) on this site and about Forex Trading training on another (http://mybest4xtraining.com). Writing almost every day a little I came to realize that people like to share things and are looking for information the whole time. No wonder that Google is so popular. Especially when you are older you have experienced so much that you want to share this with others. I had a lot of academic and professional education, not realizing that I was lacking financial education. I want to tell people of this so that they do not have wait as long as I. But blogging is for young people too. Blogging is about writing and using technology and social media. The world of our youth!

 

 

Earn an income blogging

Blogging has become popular because you can earn a living blogging. This is possible in various ways. But what is the difference with a normal website? A website is normally static, meaning that you put the information once there and it changes only when your product or contact information or something like that changes. With blogging, you constantly update posts on your website. People that visit your website get new information from you like every week or so. Some people blog every day. Your visitors get engaged and at some time they start to trust you. Through comments, they can leave a comment and you can answer. This means that you have direct and personal contact with your customers all over the world. When they trust you, they are willing to buy something from you too. Will you leave me a comment too? I would appreciate that.

But how is all this writing bringing in the bucks?

Visitors to your blog will know that you will be putting new information on your website will visit you regularly. If you do not want them to miss out, you can ask them to enter their information on an email list. Your visitors will receive an email as soon as you write a new blog. If they have bought something, they will be reminded of the product again and maybe buy again or recommend it to a friend. You can also use your blog to give your visitors tips and or let your visitors know of new deals and developments.

Even when you are not selling a product you can have a blog and make use of Affiliate Marketing. In another post on this website, I explained what Affiliate Marketing is all about. Here the same principle applies. Visitors will gain trust in you because you publish content that is unique, Here your passion has to shine through. It is important to write about something you are passionate about. It makes it easier to write and also to find new topics to write about. People must feel your passion and maybe they will fall in love with you or your product.

 

Work at homeOther benefits for a blogger

As a blogger, you can work from home or anywhere. All you need are a computer, internet, and ideas.

You can also work when you want to.

You will be your own boss, this means also that you need self-discipline.

With blogging, you can earn passive income. Write for some hours and earn while sleeping.

Blogging gives you the opportunity to share your story with the world.

You can gain recognition for your business or yourself. Some people started blogging and now they are making movies, writing books or even traveling for companies so they can blog about their travels.

But remember writing takes time and the rewards will not be in your bank account, just after finishing your first post.

Getting help to start

There are a lot of bloggers, there are so many ways to start. Most people start with building a website. This can take some time to build if you are not technologically savvy. There are ways to have a website up and running in no time with domain names and all the things you should have.

I would recommend you to start with a program that will help you, guide you step by step. You will know what to do and in which order. It can be scary to be alone on a journey with no clues where to go or what to do. On this website, you will find reviews of different training programs like Affilorama, Elite Marketing Pro and Wealthy Affiliate. Read and find out which one will suit you best.

Now is blogging something for you?

You would not know until you start. Try it, feel and see for yourself what it is. Like I said before it was no idea of mine to start blogging but I started with Wealthy Affiliate and I got hooked. With Wealthy Affiliate, you can start for free. It would cost you nothing, but you will gain some experience.

Start your own blog now!!

 

 

 

 

Fear our worst enemy

Many times I have asked my self why I did not realize what I want. I have tried to do everything my parents told me. I worked hard and I was always in the top 3 at school and in sports. I studied at a university, got good jobs and still have a good job. I was the Curacao table tennis champion, went to a World Championship and till this day I am the sub-champion of Curacao.

All this was to reach a moment in life to do whatever I wanted, a life of financial freedom so I could do what I want.

I was almost a half-century old and I still was still not where I thought I would be. My hard work didn’t take me where I wanted to be. There are many reasons for this. It wasn’t until l read ‘Rich dad, poor dad’ from Robert Kiyosaki and later ‘Think and Grow Rich’ from Napoleon Hill, that I understood that there were mind steps to be taken to reach financial freedom. Both books can be bought at AudiobooksNow.com.

They teach you what needs to happen in your mind, to start your online business, to have riches. Only then you can understand and make use of the laws of nature, like the law of attraction.

One of the first things to do is to get rid of fear, our worst enemy. Cleaning your mind of fear will take the weight off your shoulders. Did you know that our worst enemy comes in different ways? In this post, I will write about 6 types of fear.

Fear wordFear of poverty

Fear of poverty is a state of mind. If you have the desire to be rich there is no place in your mind for the fear of poverty. Think about rich in the broad sense. So, this not only means rich financially but also spiritual and mental. The way to riches and the way of fear of poverty travel in really the opposite way. If fear of poverty is your state of mind, it will paralyze your faculty of reason, leaves no place for imagination and discourages everything you think about of doing.Fear of Poverty

Some symptoms: indifference, indecision, doubt, worry, over caution and procrastination.

So if you desire riches, whatever riches, be sure why, and how you want it. You have to define what you want so you can work towards it without the fear of poverty, without our worst enemy.

Fear of criticism

There are not many people that like to be criticized. It makes us uncomfortable. Some people fear criticism so much that they will never show initiative, they never think outside of the box. What if they do something and get a critique? It is almost like dying. So do nothing and you will not be criticized.Fear of Criticism

How bad is your fear of criticism? Is it your worst enemy?

Fear of ill health

what does illness mean to you? Loss of income, getting older, getting closer to death? There are so many experiments conducted on how people imagine themselves ill. Here on the island where I come from, everybody thinks that when you get old, your legs will stop working as well as they used to. Or they will give you a lot of pain. Most of the elder people on the island have problems with their legs.

Fear of loss of loveFear of Loss of Love

This is a fear I think most of us have experienced. It is said that this one is one of the most painful. Therefore it can have a great impact on our body and mind. One symptom of this fear is jealousy. Being suspicious of friends and sometimes even loved ones without even having evidence that there is something going on. In movies, you see one accusing the spouse without any reason. This is another symptom. Most of the symptoms have to do with being suspicious of other people. How can you reach riches by suspecting people being bad?

Fear of Old Age

Earlier we talked about ill health and we touched the idea of growing old and becoming ill. Well, the fear of becoming old itself has more problems than only illness. Sexual attraction will diminish. This is a reason that people use Botox and this and that. Hair coloring is also an expression of that. I do not color my hair and all the time I get reactions like “If you color your hair you will look younger”. I am OK.

Getting old most of the times means depending on others, not being able to drive, forgetting things, and so on.

Fear of DeathFear of Death

This fear is so common to all of us and I almost think that we are born with this fear. In our education by parents and school prepares us to do this and that not to die. Every religion has a way of preparing people for what comes after death. Now in the 21st Century, a lot of people think that we are made up of energy. And what the law says that energy can not be destroyed, it can only transform. So death is a transition to another way for energy to express itself. So do not worry.

Fear no more

I ended the last paragraph with the word worry. Worry comes when you fear. And when somebody is worrying he doesn’t make decisions. Not making decisions you do not see progress, so fear enters once more. So, Fear no more!

Get rid of the fear of death. Reach a decision that death is inevitable and on how you will envision death.

Another decision to reach is that you will accumulate wealth without worries.

There are more decisions to be taken as you are not going to worry about how or what other people think of you on the path to reach your wealth.

Hopefully, we all will get old as a sign of accumulating wisdom and a lot of experience and self-control.

Take the decision to feel healthy, fit and wealthy. With those 3 things, there is no room for symptoms of illness.

Decisions about love: I will live on although it will be only with my love for myself.

Free of Fear

With all these decisions taken it is time to start your own online business and get on the road to riches!!

VERDICT: LEGIT

What is Affiliate Marketing about?

 

Wealthy Affiliate and affiliate marketing are words that have been used in Affiliate Marketingother posts on this website and more and more people are wondering what it is. It is not yet something that is commonly known. Although within the internet marketing world, everybody knows what the term means. But what is affiliate marketing about? There are different definitions used but they are all about the same.

As I said earlier, there are different definitions used. I will try to say it in a way that it is easy to understand.

Affiliate marketing is a marketing strategy where a company rewards/pays an individual person for attracting customers, sometimes even visitors, to that business. That individual person is called an affiliate.

Online there are different possibilities. Using a website is the possibility that first comes to mind. But it is not the only way. You can also use YouTube, SlideShare, Pinterest, Email marketing, Linkedin, and E-books.

Social Media Icons

 


Origin


This started almost 30 years ago. Can you imagine that? As soon as the internet presented itself, people became creative. In 1989 the concept of this type of marketing was introduced by William J. Tobin. He was the founder of PC Flowers & Gifts.

The affiliate marketing programs became widely known by amazon.com. They were not the first but they made an associate program that was liked by both companies and affiliates. Other companies copied this system so they could promote their affiliate programs too. In 1996 Amazon.com started to offer their associates banner or text links. The affiliate could put those banners and links on their websites. When visitors clicked on the links and went to the Amazon.com website, and became customers, the affiliate received a payment. A visitor becomes a customer when he or she buys something.

This is the way that most affiliate programs work nowadays.


Compensation for the affiliate


There are different ways that an affiliate can be paid, compensated. The Income for Affiliatecompensation is not always necessary in the form of money. Sometimes you get a gift card or credit points for ‘free’ gifts. I’m going to give you the three most used forms of affiliate marketing in 2018.

Revenue sharing or pay per sale (PPS): this is when the company pays an affiliate for the cost of advertising when the visitor buys something, in other words, become a customer. This is the method used by 80% of the affiliate programs

Cost per action (CPA): 19% of the affiliate programs use this method. Other names used for CPA are cost per conversion or PPA (pay per acquisition). The company pays the affiliate for leads that result in a sale, a registration, a newsletter sign up. In other words, the company pays for a specific action.

Only 1% uses cost per click (CPC) or cost per mille (CPM), that is the cost per estimated 1000 views). The company makes use of display marketing. Display marketing is also a way of online advertising where the company’s promotional messages are put on social networks as Facebook or search engines results page (like Google and Yahoo).


Why become an affiliate or offer affiliate programs?


Now that you know what affiliate marketing is all about? What are some reasons to become an affiliate? Well here are some reasons:

  • The opportunity to work your own hours

This is what most of us want. Isn’t it? This also means that you can do it beside your 9 to 5 job.

  • Low start-up costs

To start up a brick-and-mortar business you need a lot of money up front. This is necessary for the store/building, lawyers and inventory. All of this without earning a dime. With Affiliate marketing, no money is needed.

  • No expert knowledge needed

Let me put it like this. No expert knowledge needed to start. Along the way, you will become an expert in your niche.

  • No staff needed

This is you being the affiliate and only you earning commissions.

  • A way to earn a passive income

This is nice. Your website is working 24/7 for you. When you post something, it is work done just once, but over and over again it is helping you to attract visitors and customers.

  • You do not need a product

Really? Yes, really. How is that possible? Join an affiliate marketing training market and they will show you how.

 

Why offer affiliate programs?

What are the possible reasons for a company to offer affiliate programs? When you have read all the above, you can imagine some reasons.Sales go up

    • More traffic
    • a new group of customers
    • their brand will become more known
    • a different setup of the sales department
    • and ultimately more sales

 


Where to find affiliate programs?Magnifying Glass


The place where the company offers their affiliate programs is the place where to find them of course.

  1. The far most common place to find affiliate programs is on the website of the company. Most of the time you find info about their affiliate marketing program by scrolling down their home page. Scroll down to the bottom and you will see something like associate or affiliate program.
  2. Using Google. Search for affiliate programs + …… On the dots fill in your niche.
  3. Using Google again if you do not have a niche, but hen search for ‘List of Affiliate programs’
  4. Clickbank

Finally


Now that you know what affiliate marketing is about, would you like to join an affiliate marketing training to experience it for yourself? There are a lot of programs available. On this website, I have reviewed Wealthy Affiliate and Elite Marketing Pro. I have followed some free courses on the internet, but I had nothing after that. No sorry, I had more questions after the videos and lessons.

What I like about Wealthy Affiliate the most is the task-based video training. While in training you are creating websites, generating traffic and so on. Within 6 weeks of training, I got two pages indexed by Google.

But the choice is all yours. Educate yourself and soon you can make educated decisions on an affiliate program that suits you.

 

 

 

 

How to turn a passion into business?

I was in an event of learning how to trade Forex with more than 400 people, Forex Trading Chartand the speaker asked who went to college. A lot of hands raised. Then he asked who is doing what he studied for. You could count on your two hands how many. It is such a pity. Most of us studied something that we liked or thought that it would bring us enough money.
As time passed and we are not doing what we like or what is bringing us money, we have to take a moment to assess the situation. Wouldn’t it be nice to do something you like, you are passionate about and earn enough money at the same time? What if you knew how to turn a passion into a business?

I remember when I was little my parents told me to do my best at school, go to college and get a good job so I could be doing what I wanted. It took a long time. Reading a lot of books about financial freedom and personal development, I came to understand that the mindset is everything.

So what is needed to turn your passion into a business?

Define your Passionpassion


To turn your passion into a business you have to know what you are passionate about. What gives you confidence and energy? What gives you a warm feeling? Sometimes you can figure this out for yourself. Sometimes it will not hurt to ask the people closest to you, like your family and friends, for their opinion. I would advise you to start with a list of things you like, so along the way you can choose better, which one you really want to turn into a business.

Here are some questions that can help you to get started:

  • what are the things that you like to talk about?
  • what activities make you forget time?
  • are there other people doing what you like? Are you following them?
  • can you make something, do something that other people admire?
  • are people telling you that you are good in …….
  • when you have time off, what do you do?
  • if you had enough money, what will you be working on?
  • how would you like people to remember you?
  • do you read? What do you read about?

I know I wanted a business but I had no idea in what. I was not used to thinking business wise. So most of the things I came up with, would not bring me any money. I decided to start with Wealthy Affiliate anyway. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you some skills in affiliate marketing you can practice in promoting their product. So I started. But while learning I got inspired. The community of Wealthy Affiliate is so big, helpful and there are so many stories of all over the world, that ideas come into your head. Things you never heard of before or never thought of.
My advice is to start somewhere and ideas will come rolling in.

Where are your customers?Customer


By now you could have a list of things you like or are passionate about. Now you need to find out what other people would like to know about them. Would they be willing to pay for that product or service or info you will be offering? If you do not know go do some research. Ask people, read about it, google it and find a way you can make your passion needy and profitable. What you want is to help people out with their needs. You can read my article “How to sell your product online”.

When you know who your customers are you have to find out where you can find them. Some months ago my teenage daughter told me I was using Facebook too much so she will not be using it anymore. Just a tip!

Are they using the internet? If yes, how? Which platform do they use? Where do they use the internet and so on. So you have to think about a way to reach your customers.

From passion to business


When turning your passion into your business you need to realize what a business is all about. It is no longer doing only what you like to do, but it also has to do with marketing, financial statements, dealing with customers and so on. If you have never had a business before, you will be surprised how much time the business side will take from you. Sometimes you can end up with less time for what you like. Sometimes it even takes away a little passion off your passion.

Those are just things that could happen, especially with the traditional way of doing business. Wealthy Affiliate offers you a way to do business in this century with modern tools and technology. The way Wealthy Affiliate let you turn a passion into your business, you will be more into your passion. They will take care of most of the things you do not want or know about. It has to do a lot about writing about your passion. Before you can write something that will attract others you have to do your research. You have to write the right information. This will build trust with your customers. While repeating this cycle over and over again you will become an expert. You will be creating content that counts.

Make a plan

Plan your business


Now that you know which passion to turn into business and who you are going to target, it is time to make a plan. Put on paper:

  • what you are going to do
  • for who you are going to do it
  • with whom
  • your targets
  • things (money, products, place) needed
  • how you are going to present your product to your customers

Use an online backbone


You can do your research again to know where to find an online backbone to turn your passion into a business, but people all over the world have done this for you. Wealthy Affiliate is the number one place to be. They offer you the necessary tools, education, hosting, mentoring and a lovely caring community to make your dreams come true.

Elite Marketing Pro Price


It is remarkable that going through the website of Elite Marketing Pro it is hard to find their pricing. The pricing is put under the Products tab. And only partly. When you read about it from people who have tried it, you see different prices.

I know that there is a free membership, but that only means receiving emails about the Attraction Marketing Bootcamp. After going through that program I still had no idea how to start and it was not inviting to go for the paid membership.

There is a membership possibility of $47 a month.

There is also an Anual Membership of $297.

The Annual Membership gives you:

  • Page Creator Pro Website Builder
  • Private Members Community Mastermind
  • EMP Weekly LIVE ‘HOT SEAT’ Webinars
  • EMP Weekly ‘Begin to Win’ Webinar
  • EMP Monthly Insider Advanced Marketing
  • Three 1-on-1 Mindset & Marketing Coaching Sessions
  • License to 8 EMP Lead Capture & Sales Systems
  • 4-Step Fast-Start to Online Success Guide
  • Invite to Elite Marketing Pro Insider Affiliate Program

There is also an EMP VIP Membership of $2997. This is the package with the most value.

My Final Opinion of Elite Marketing Pro


My final opinion is that there are less expensive memberships programs out there on the internet that gives you the same or more value. Programs that will really build something especially if you are new to all of this.

Compared to Wealthy Affiliate? With Wealthy Affiliate, you will get more value for your money.

How to sell your product online

Nowadays there are different ways to sell your product online. One of the main reasons is to reach more people. I come from a very small island in the Caribbean named Curacao. There are only 140000 people living here. When you go to a shop here, p.e. a cloth shop, most of the time you are the only customer there. We depend very much on tourists. So you can imagine how important the internet is for us. Here are some other reasons why you would want to sell your product online:

  • 24/7 reachable
  • Better customer support
  • Low start-up costs
  • Live/work from anywhere
  • Reduce operation costs

But what do you need to realize this?

A product


Is the product you want to sell physical or is it a service? It is even possible to start a business with the product of someone else. Wealthy Affiliate will help you define in more detail what it is you want to sell. They help you to uncover opportunities with keywords. Also, the competition will be taken into account using a tool called Jaaxy.

But you can also follow your passion, own experience and expertise.

Wealthy Affiliate uses a question I like very much to help determine your product. They look at the pain of customers and ask you to fill in the next sentence.

I want to help people with ………………….

Your target Customermarket


Who would buy your product? In other words who need your product? One commonly made mistake is trying to sell your product to everybody, making everybody your customer. The name says it already, it is a target market. Who are you targeting? This is import to know so you know how to direct your efforts. Especially your advertising efforts. You could imagine that the approach of a teenager would be completely different to the approach of someone who just retired. Wealthy Affiliate will guide you through this process.

Be sure that your product and your target market match. Understand your customers and even your future customers. You have to let the customers know what your product can mean to them, which value it brings to them. People will only buy something that will help them solve a problem. They will buy from someone they trust. You have to get your target market to trust you.

Marketing


There are a lot of ways to market your product. That is the act by which you promote and sell your products. It includes market research and advertising and a lot more. In the online world, it is called generating traffic. Let Wealthy Affiliate help you with that. They will give you possibilities to let your target market know that you are there. There are different strategies that can be used.

In less than a month at Wealthy Affiliate, I made a lot of friends. I know 200 more people now. They know about me and what I am promoting. Some friends at Wealthy Affiliate told me that they left Wealthy Affiliate after some time because they were doing good. Now that they are back they are doing even better with all the courses and information they are getting. This platform is not only for the newbie but also for the more seasoned online business owners.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn all that there is in blogging & content marketing and of course affiliate marketing. But also about keywords (using Jaaxy), SEO & PPC campaign.

A websiteWebsite


To do all the above you need a website. You should create and host a website. Wealthy Affiliate will let you create a website for free and host it also for free. They use SiteRubix for the creation of your website. In no time you can have a website up and running. This website is an example of that. There are of course more tools to make websites easily. Some of them are easy but you can not customize them as you want.

You do not have to worry about the hosting if you are with Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate will take care of your website so that it is on the internet for your target market and others. Backups are made automatically. This is possible even with a free account.

Good characteristicsGood Character head


It is commonly known that having all the above will not be sufficient to succeed. As a person, you need some qualities too, like a burning desire to succeed, faith, knowledge, imagination, discipline, patience, planning skills and a partner to help you realize all of this.

Starting your own online business means that you are an entrepreneur. So are your own boss. Nobody to run after you to tell you when and where things should be done. You can work on your own time and at your own pace, but things have to be done to get somewhere. Discipline is maybe one of the most important of all the characteristics mentioned above.

Conclusion


There are a lot of things to consider when you want to start an online business. At first, it can be quite overwhelming. Do not get discouraged. If you want something then you must be willing to learn.

Wealthy Affiliate will help you with even the personal qualities. Have faith that they will give you the knowledge needed. Your imagination will be triggered by the community. Have discipline and patience to follow the well-organized courses. You will have a partner for life.

When starting with Wealthy Affiliate

I wrote a blog on the Wealthy Affiliate website that I want to share with you before you start with Wealthy Affiliate.

In my quest for doing things differently, looking for opportunities, I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I do not remember how exactly I came across the friendly face of Mario Rosa telling me how Wealthy Affiliate can help me. I decided to make an account.

Overwhelmed

And then I got overwhelmed by all there was to see on the website. There was live chat, training, a lot of buttons. I didn’t start right away. Where to, why put my information out there? They urge you to write a bio, goals, etc. I wasn’t sure what would happen to my info and myself.

After two days with Wealthy Affiliate, I still didn’t do a thing. I asked questions before. I started. Let me tell you that all info you put in the chats, the goals, is only within the Wealthy Affiliate community. The reactions are loving and caring.

Smart Goals

When I realized this, I wanted to react and help others out too. For example someone wrote that they wanted enough money. I learned over the years that a goal should be SMART for you to have the chance to succeed. With SMART I mean that your goals should be:

  • Specific: it should be clear what you want. A one time earning, monthly income, or ..
  • Measurable: you should know when you reached your goal. Is $10 enough or is $1000?
  • Achievable: do you believe it is possible, achievable?
  • Realistic: is $1000000 per hour realistic?
  • Time-bounded: when must it happen?

Finally the start

Then I really focused on the training. I haven’t found my niche yet, so I switched to the Affiliate Bootcamp training. I am learning a lot and enjoying it. When reading comments, bio’s and achievements of others, I am getting ideas and inspiration.

Thank you, Wealthy Affiliate community!

So beginner, don’t be afraid and get going. Start with the green button on the left.

Enjoy the journey!
