Top 20 Most Successful People At Wealthy Affiliate

Top 20 Most Successful People At Wealthy AffiliateSuccessful people at WA

For the past 4 months, I have been an active member on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I have met so many amazing and wonderful people. I never imagined that my experience would be one that I will always remember and most importantly, cherish in my heart for always.

I became a member on Sept 24th, 2015. I wasn’t looking for an online class on how to build websites on WordPress which is what Wealthy Affiliate really is. I was actually looking for a review of binary options. I had invested $350 and had lost it so quickly that I was a little bit embarrassed to tell you the truth. That’s when I came across a website with a review of binary options. I will not mention the name of the “company” because that is really not what this article is about. However, now that I think about it all, it’s really impressive how I got to where I am today.

I had just lost one of my biggest clients and thought to myself, “What if I loose another one and then, another one?” I started feeling stressed and worried. I had worked so hard to build my business and at that very moment, felt like everything was out of my control. It’s not a very good feeling at all.

SoniaI have been running my own marketing agency specialized in the restaurant industry for almost 12 years now and I really love what I do. I am very passionate about it all and have learned so much along the way. However, when I stopped to realize that I wasn’t getting any younger, although I am only 44 years old, I began to ask myself questions, important questions about what I was planning on doing for the next 25 years of my working life.

Well, to make a long story short, after I was done reading the review on binary options, I began going through the website that I had fallen upon and  came across the Wealthy Affiliate review. Obviously, I read it and immediately joined. It was free. I had absolutely nothing to loose. I didn’t hesitate for one second. The review was perfect. It told me everything that I needed to know and even more so.

There are a few things that it didn’t tell me though.

It didn’t tell me that my life was about to change. It didn’t tell me that I was going to meet the most amazing, most devoted, most honorable people in the world.

I had absolutely no idea what I was in for but I have to tell you, it’s the best decision that I have ever made in my entire life. I am not exaggerating when I say that.

I recorded a little video a little while after I joined. That’s how excited I was about the whole thing. You can watch it over here if you like.

Anyways, it’ really difficult to put into words what I truly feel right now. I am so very grateful for Wealthy Affiliate and will never, I repeat, NEVER stop, quit, leave or even think about leaving this platform.

The owners, Kyle, and Carson, are brilliant! Not only are they brilliant, but they really care about the success of everyone that is part of Wealthy Affiliate. I have to say, that they are probably the smartest entrepreneurs that I have ever come across.

If they had vision, let me tell you, they made it happen!

Wealthy Affiliate Platform

For those of you who are wondering what the Wealthy Affiliate platform is, well, I will tell you. In a nutshell, it’s like Facebook but better.

Everyone on the platform is a member. Everyone is there for the same reason and all have the same goals. What are those goals? Ultimately, they all want to make money online. I would have to say that that is the primary reason why people join to begin with. But then, it’s almost like that goal changes….sort of.

It’s hard to explain but after a few online courses, people seem to change and realize that their focus isn’t only on money. It’s about helping others build their websites either by answering their questions, by posting helpful tips and information about blogging and/or affiliate marketing.

NEVER have I come across a group of business people that are all so very positive, outgoing, genuine, smart, helpful, generous and most importantly, all have one same quality, integrity.

I have been searching for people like this my entire life and I am sure, that if the entire world knew that this existed, much like Facebook, everyone would be a member! If they knew what kind of beautiful people we meet there, they wouldn’t hesitate for a minute. They would join!

Every day, I post small blogs on the platform mostly to give blogging tips. That’s my specialty I guess. Every time I post something, I get amazing comments and feedback from the members. When I said that it was much like Facebook, it really is minus the negative stuff and the drama. I have almost 2000 followers “friends” and follow almost 1000 members in return. I must say that it’s really extraordinary to make friends with someone and to know that that person has the same goal as you. There is just no question about that.

Have I actually met anyone on the platform? Nope but it surely feels like I have.

On the WA platform:

-We have followers and we can, in return, follow them back.

-We have our profile and people can view it and visit our websites that we have built.

-They can also see all of the training modules that we have created.

-There is a chat room.

-You can send someone an email in private.

-You can “like” a post if you wish.

-You can ask questions and you are sure to ALWAYS find the answer.

-There are members from all over the world so no matter what time it is, there are always people actively working on the platform.

-You can openly welcome new members.

-We get ranked and this shows our involvement in helping others build their websites. ( unlike Facebook)

I will not go through everything that we can do on the platform because that isn’t the purpose of this article either. I simply wanted to give you an idea of what Wealthy Affiliate really is before I go into my top 20 list of most successful people.

This is what the platform looks like! I invite you to read my review of Wealthy Affiliate if you wish, right here. 

Wealthy Affiliate platform

Before I get into my list, I need to tell you what my definition of success is. It’s not only about money. I mean, don’t get me wrong, yes,  money is important but that’s not what I refer to when I say, “success”.

To me, success is all about attitude and integrity. It’s about implication and devotion. It’s a state of mind, actually. These 20 people are truly amazing and wonderful people. They have worked hard, have been constant in their business, have been helpful to others and have sacrificed to get where they are today.

I have interviewed them all one after the other and in doing so, have realized that these 20 people really deserve to be on this list. The way they responded to me and to my questions was, in my opinion, proof enough that they are all a success. Success comes from within, first.

Please note that they are not in any particular order.

Dave Stapleton1-DAVE STAPLETON

JOINED: October 12, 2015

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

To learn all the skills necessary to become a top affiliate marketer. This would also mean that I would become a successful writer reaching many people and touching their lives.

How long did it take you to achieve it?

It is still an active and ongoing goal.

If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Be prepared to take action. Which means be prepared for some work. Yes it is hard and yes you are going to have to put in some effort but it will be worth it.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Family. We are all here to learn how to succeed. Because of this bond, we are a family. We all help one another and by doing so, we, ourselves learn and grow.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Right now, I would have to say “confidence”. Confidence in my writing, confidence in newly learned skills, confidence in me.

JOINED: August 28, 2015
When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?
I wanted to make it through all 50 of the video lessons and apply them. Then my goal became to give this a year without giving up. Now I have traffic goals and ultimately I want to have a website that is everything about mental health and reviews to earn an income so I can quit working a day job and to also provide counseling/life coaching.
-How long did it take you to achieve it?
It took me six weeks to complete all of the videos. I set a goal of a month but it took me two weeks longer than planned. However, I’m a single mom of four and I work two jobs. Taking that into consideration, I think I did quite well.
-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?
Go to marcparsons profile page and do his training on “4 X Search Engine Traffic in 4 days” before doing all of the other training and take notes.
-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Affordable.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Ask questions. It’s not possible to know everything and so you MUST ask questions until you get your answer. And if you don’t get the answer you need from one person or one training then continue asking. Someone will have the answer for you. Don’t give up.

 

Nathan Allan3- NATHAN ALLAN

JOINED: October 14, 2014

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal (what I would call my vision) before joining WA and after joining WA is to achieve financial freedom. What that means to me is that I have enough financially that money doesn’t stop me from experiencing anything and also that I have enough time to experience everything that I want to in life. It also means that I call the shots. I have a more specific vision in terms of dollar figures/year etc than that but that’s the essence of what I am aiming for. There are many smaller goals that need to be set and met on the way to that ultimate goal.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

I haven’t yet achieved my ultimate goal but I am happy with my progress towards it. I have achieved several of my smaller goals so far.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

 There are 3 things that I believe are key to achieving success. Firstly knowing what you want. Clarity of your vision is very important and always keeping focused on that vision.

The second is patience and the third persistence.

There are never any guarantees and there are other things that are needed but if you keep focused on your vision and remain patient and persistent then you give yourself a great chance of success.

Don’t look at WA as a get rich quick (which doesn’t exist by the way) or money making thing. Look at it as a journey and as a business. The financial gains will follow later but you’ve got to set yourself up for it. People often give up right before they were about to succeed.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

One word is hard. If I had to say it one word it would be: Resource.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

The order of when to do things. I started working on a website and trying to get traffic to it and all that before joining WA but everything I was learning was scattered and I missed pieces and was doing things in the wrong order and focusing and spending time on the wrong things. The training at WA helped me to learn everything and do it all in the right order in an easy step by step way.

Maybe that doesn’t quite the answer to the question. If there was one thing that I learned it would be this: Focus on adding value – don’t focus on making money. If you give your readers something valuable the money will flow naturally.

 

Peter4- PETER GUIRGUIS

JOINED: July 14th, 2014. “I’ll never forget that date!”

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal was to learn everything there was about affiliate marketing. I knew people were succeeding online, I just didn’t know how. But I knew Wealthy Affiliate had the answers. Once I started going through the steps, I began to realize the importance of traffic in becoming a successful online marketer, as well as the importance of helping. So my main goal at the time was to create a site that could be scaled on a month to month basis, get as much traffic to my site as I could, and make it as user engaging as possible.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

I wouldn’t say that I have achieved my ultimate goal just yet. It’s a work in progress, but I’ve come a long way and achieved more than I thought possible. I’ve hit a number of goals along the way, but I’m not sure my work will ever be finished. One of the biggest goals I’ve hit was hitting 900 individuals in traffic per day, which was a big accomplishment for me.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Be consistent in your efforts and patient in your results. Treasure every small goal you hit along the way because that all builds up to your success in the end.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Lifesaver!

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

The most important thing WA has taught me is that there is no such thing as overnight success. Any and every business takes time. Nothing has taught me that as well as WA. But on that note, it also taught me that there is this opportunity to create success online and it is out there for the taking. Be confident in your work and training, and you will find success!

 

Wendy Jane5-WENDY WOLF

JOINED: I’ve been here for 3 years. My WA profile says I joined in September of 2012, but it took several months before I decided to upgrade and really gave it a shot, which ended up being about February of 2013.

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My goal was simply to earn consistent income online, I didn’t have any concrete numbers in my head as to what I ultimately wanted to be earning.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

It took an entire year before I was earning with consistency, although I made my first dollar after 3 months.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

That’s a really hard question…probably the most important tip I can think of is to not be so quick to give up, you have to be willing to push yourself past the point where most people would stop. If after a few weeks or months you realize you picked a bad niche or one that’s just not for you, don’t throw your hands up and call a fail… start over. Pick a different niche. Many people have to go through several before they find one that is really working for them. Also don’t be scared to ask for help if you need it, seriously. I would have definitely thrown up my hands and given up if it weren’t for some of the people at WA helping me when I got stuck.

6-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

One that comes to mind right now is innovative.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

It’s really crazy to me that before I joined WA I had absolutely no clue people could make money online, let alone full-time incomes… and that there were such incredibly helpful and genuine people out there. It helped me see the good nature of humanity.

 

Eric6-ERIC KAUTZ

JOINED: January 24, 2015

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

To learn about online business and marketing and teach others the same. Financially to supplement my income and build a long-term business base.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

The learning part started quickly. Early on my progress was repressed by an automobile accident and subsequent injuries I obtained from it. I am still learning, and probably will be forever as there is just so much material, and have already helped many other folks along the way.

Helping others is not only one of my strongest and most natural traits but also the one that I identify most with as I am a people person. I like to see everyone succeed and everyone have a fair shot. I do what I can to help. I’ve always found that focusing on the people (my audience) and leaving the “other stuff” for the back burner has always paid off in the long run. And the long run is what business is all about. Just try to weather a storm if your thinking and running your business on a short term front, you’re going to sink.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

I cannot really put a date on when I achieved this because my non-financial achievements were near immediate though in small magnitude. A year later that magnitude was exponentially greater and it showed with my WA ranking of 3 (highest possible) and the respect and admiration other community members (my second family if you will) had shown me.

My financial achievements also started out as a dribble about three months (maybe two and a half months) after I started WA. My first sale was for two dollars and change. I’d have danced around the room had it not been for the accident I was in. More sales came later though I do not quite have a stream of income yet. I’ve found though that it’s not about the money, it’s about building solid and lifelong relationships with people. I’ve also found I really enjoy building websites. It’s a load of fun and very interesting. If it gets old I just start a new site with a new topic.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Forget everything you know, have heard, vices you may have about online business or work from home opportunities and open your mind to truly build your business and start your new life.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Unparalleled.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

I learned that this is not hard at all.

 

Colton James7- COLTON JAMES

JOINED: November, 2014

His website is impressive

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

To replace the income that I was creating at a gas station job.
-How long did it take you to achieve it?

Around 8 months to fully replace it and then some.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Don’t skip anything, I would implement each little step as I was taught in the videos. I’d literally pause the video, add whatever Kyle had added to his site, then resume it until the next part.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Revolutionary.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

That it really is possible to create passive income through your passion. All it takes is a drive to make it happen, the will to sacrifice yourself to the fact that you’ve got to learn something new and a community to help you get it done.

 


Paul Goodwin8-PAUL ANTHONY GOODWIN

JOINED: Well I joined in Feb last year started for a week of so thought it was all crap and quit – Then one day in October I got an email by accident from WA and thought “Hmmmm” so I started and this time really started to get a hold of things.  So really from the end of October.

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

When I joined it was to earn money as I was out of work and 65 years old. There isn’t much hope for a man of my age these days.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

Well, let’s say that I started at the end of October until now. It has been about four months. I find myself in rank 5 on the platform and have made over 1000 USD since Christmas! So, my financial goals have already begun becoming a reality. 

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Do not skip any part of the training. When you have done it, then do it over again.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Amazing.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Helping others.

JOINED: June 18, 2015

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My Ultimate goal when joining WA was to learn Affiliate marketing, share what I already knew, create a life that I didn’t need a vacation from so that I could be involved in my teenage son’s life while helping friends to also have the same time freedom.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

I am living it and it get’s better every day – I thoroughly enjoy helping friends make strides towards their goals as well.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Learn, share and become involved with the entire WA experience. There is no better Business Community/Family on the internet or in the World – WA is loaded with talented Friends in many areas and from all over the World.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

 Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

 I learned that I can learn from anyone and that anyone can learn from me & to keep an open mind & heart.

 


Eddy Solomon10- EDDY SALOMON
(better known as Eddy with a y)

JOINED: Jun 3, 2007

His website  is awesome.

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

At the time, I just joined to fill in some gaps I had with internet marketing and business. So I didn’t have a goal per se for WA. I did always have the goal to work at home full time.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

 I have no idea. I’ve been at this since the late 90s and always made some money on a smaller scale. I can say after I wised up and finally decided to invest in my actual learning with programs like WA, within 2-3 years of that I was making enough money to work at home full time and quit my corporate job.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Be patient. I see too many people approaching this business like it’s a job and expecting to see financial results based on the hours and time put. It’s not like that. Any business is like an investment in yourself where you may not see the returns for a while. But know they will eventually come but you have to be patient.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Best

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

I really learned about writing content and using it to get traffic properly. That was the biggest thing I learned here which still helps me right now.

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

To learn all about website development

-How long did it take you to achieve it?
Never done! So much to learn on there.

If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Start yesterday!

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Addictive (in a positive way)

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Unity in all areas, at WA there is no difference between starters and advanced, between different cultures, between rich or poor, man or woman. Here is unity beyond all members.

 


James12-JAMES W DARRENKAMP

JOINED: October 2014

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal was to learn how to start my own business on the side and to be able to grow it until it could take over for my 9-5 job.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

Still working on it!

If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Patience is key, follow the training, ask questions and do the work!

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Positive.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Follow your passions. Don’t do it just to do it or make money, but do what you like and make money doing it.

A special note on my case: Just after my first year in I started working on a project with a good friend to start our own Board Game Company. As that project progressed it slowly moved my sites and WA to the back burner.

Then I had a job change, followed by another job change and that is when I was able to come back. Still working on the other project, but my newest job has a flexibility that allows me to work on WA as well.

So in reality, I just came back this last a few months ago. That is when I noticed that my “Family Game Night Ideas” site was over 1600 for traffic in the last 30 days! However, Amazon did something over the summer and when I didn’t respond my account was closed. I got it back up and running in time to pick up a few sales, though.

This time, around I wanted my focus to be on the first idea I had coming into the game. A self-improvement/spiritual blog site helping people learn how to improve themselves and make a positive difference in the world. I have been working on that more than anything this year and am striving to have it profitable within the next 6 months.

 


Alex Sol13-ALEX SOL

JOINED: October 2007

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

The ultimate goal was to make it work. I knew WA was the last thing I would try as I got scammed mane times before.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

In my opinion, it took me less than 2 weeks. That’s when I earned a first commission ($33) and I knew it was real. I also understood that if I can make 1 sale I can make many more.

If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Get ready to invest your time. There is absolutely no shortcut to success.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

 WA to me means possibility. If there was one single training program that would give us a possibility to learn how to make an income online it would be WA.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

The most important thing I’ve learned is taking consistent action. WA has an amazing community and lots of training but all of that is useless in the hands of those who do not take action. Do something every single day that would move you closer to your goal. Take action, consistently.

 


John Cruz14- JOHN CRUZ

JOINED: I joined WA in 2010, but did absolutely nothing. I finally took action in 2014, so you can say I was an active member since 2014.

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal was to create a site and make just $1. Once that happened I knew I was in the right place.

 

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

3 months.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Stick with it. I don’t care if you’re not making a single penny, you can not quit. The business has a simple model and it is all a matter of building out your site for the future. The work you put in now will reflect in the future. That’s just how it is.

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Life changing.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

I have learned that consistency pays off and you get what you put in.

Persist until you persevere, anything less will never lead to success.

6-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

How to communicate my niche specialty with the world of Internet strangers to develop online relationships and a religious following.

 


Ian Prybil16-IAN PRIBYL

JOINED: I don’t remember exactly, but looking at my emails, as far as I can tell it was around October 2012.

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

To find the safest place to send my following that were looking for a place to get an honest start in internet marketing.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

Instantly – within weeks of finding Wealthy Affiliate, I was recommending it to my followers and getting great feedback. I wish there had been something like it when I was first looking to get started in 2004.

5-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Prepare yourself for one of the most difficult battles you’ve faced in your life. Getting an internet business off of the ground and successful will push you to your limits and challenge you more than you can possibly imagine. View it as a journey, give yourself permission to make mistakes, and soak up every drop of knowledge you can from each mistake you make. That’s the best way you can set yourself up for success going into the arena of internet marketing.

If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Supportive

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

 The ones that succeed are the ones that never give up. Almost everyone struggles and “flounders” a bit, and the vast majority of people “wash out” during these stages because they didn’t prepare themselves well enough mentally coming into the journey. But those that push through, no matter how many times they fall or stumble, eventually succeed even if it takes them months or years to do so.

The nickname that’s getting around after my good friend Robert (Boomergp08), mentioned me in his post , which he publishes here on the first Sunday of every month titled “Having Fun Learning”, I highly recommend it for everyone. You can catch the Dude Blurb in “Having fun Learning 2”, listed on his profile page.

JOINED: June 2014

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

I can’t say I had an “Ultimate goal, I wanted to learn both online marketing and website building, and immediately joined in and made friends. I’ve been learning and growing ever since.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

Personally, I don’t think there’s a plateau, I just keep on learning, and for me that’s what WA is. The knowledge, and resources at WA are phenomenal, and like many others I’ll probably be here for many years to come. I mean we learn and feed off each other here. The content within WA is as varied as the people that make up our community. Everyone brings their own set of skills to WA, from the novice right up to the pro.

If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?
Get involved with the community, don’t be shy. The give and take is what makes WA what it is. The more you learn, the more you’ll be able to give back, and help others succeed

-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

I can’t and refuse to “box” WA. It’s owners, Kyle and Carson are “Avant Gardistes”, it’s about learning and applying online tools, developing ethical capitalism, as well as being part of a community that for most part, strives on helping others as well as ourselves succeed. It’s a perfect example of what can be achieved in communities at large.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

That yes, we can create a community where people care about each other’s success and well being, and not only online. So many WA Friends and Family extend well into my everyday Life, and has grown much beyond the confines of WA.

 


Pat Tucker18-Pat Tucker

JOINED: July 15, 2015

When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?

Like everyone else, I wanted to secure my future by getting some residual income, while doing something that I love. I love health and wellness, so I thought why not do something with it and have some affiliate links that would generate some income for me at the same time.

-How long did it take you to achieve it?

It is still a solid idea, but it is still a work in progress. Mainly my own fault, I tend to bite off more than I can chew as the saying goes. Too much going on to give it 100% of my attention.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Pick a niche you really love, and one that can support 2 blog posts per week for as long as you own your site. You don’t want to be struggling to find topics to cover time after time.

6-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

Supportive — people want to support others through their journey and give back support they were given, part of paying it forward.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

How much I enjoy writing blogs and motivating others. English was easily my worse subject and essay writing was not high on my list of things I remember fondly about high school but this was different. This I found was a fun way to write. Everyone seemed to need encouragement at some point. We cannot always be on a high.

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?
My ultimate goal was to become self-employed making money on the internet through training and websites.
-How long did it take you to achieve it?
I’m still in the process of maintaining that achievement. I was waylaid by the shiny syndrome which you can read in my blogs. It was only in Jun 2015 that I really started giving WA my full attention. It took about 3 months to really begin to start earning income from the training created on WA.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

Don’t quit your day job until you know you’ve done all the training correctly on WA and are making a sustainable income online from it.
-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?
Once In A Lifetime Opportunity, Not To be Found Elsewhere.

-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

Stay true to yourself and others and abide by WA Guidelines to make the most of it. Pay it forward with an attitude of gratitude.

-When you joined, what was your ultimate goal?
I wanted to learn if affiliate marketing was everything that it claims to be. A way to achieve financial freedom and spend more time with the ones we love. After the sudden loss of my father, I learned that life is too short and the ones who have loved us and supported us the most in our lives can suddenly be taken away from you in a moment’s notice. I was pursuing my doctorate degree in another state when my father passed away so my priorities switched from attaining that final graduate degree to family. My parents have taught me that family comes first before anything else. I lost sight of that along the way, but joining WA I can now visualize a future of achieving that ultimate goal where I have that family time which is so precious while keeping a nice roof over our heads.
-How long did it take you to achieve it?

I am still working towards that ultimate goal. I am a full-time affiliate marketer and know that in time I will achieve the financial piece to my ultimate goal, because I know I can get there quicker by working full-time as opposed to only working an hour or two every couple of days. Success is not something which magically transforms overnight. It takes time. It takes dedication. It takes patience. It takes perseverance. There are those who will quit too soon because they are seeking that instant gratification, but if you allow yourself to let go of that instant gratification and just focus on putting forth the effort and not throwing in the towel, you will be rewarded.The thing too about goals is once you achieve one goal, you want to set another one and always be reaching beyond what you think your potential is, because when you do that, you will discover just how incredibly high your potential truly is.

-If you could give someone only one tip prior to joining WA, what would it be?

I am a believer in what Napoleon Hill had to say, “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed” and if you go with that mentality, you will achieve.Here is how I proved how effective that philosophy works within WA:

I joined WA on April 21, 2015 and by May 19, 2015 (almost one month after joining), I had made sales of $158.95, earning myself a commission of $9.55 through Amazon in a rather small niche. Making money after only the first month is unusual but not impossible if you help others along the way. By June 2015, two months after joining WA, I was invited into the Ambassador program due to all of the help and inspiration I had provided to the community. Being invited into the Ambassador program has NOTHING to do with how much money you are making or if you have made any money as of yet. It is based solely on how helpful and giving you are to the community. And that is how the philosophy of Napoleon Hill works.

So, to answer the question of one tip I would give someone prior to joining WA would be to remember Napoleon Hill’s quote , because I am proof of how well it works.

6-If you had one word to describe WA, what would it be?

The one word I would use to describe WA is Empowering.7-What is the one most important thing that you have learned from WA?

I have learned to always be full of dynamism – having energy, enthusiasm, and determination to succeed .

    What a great blog. Amazing how success is measured. It is not always about the money. It is about helping others as we build our future.

      Thank you so much! Yes, you are absolutely right. I don’t think that you can start making any kind of money until you really start helping others.

    What an awesome article Sonia! I read every word & am now listing everyone’s 1 word descriptions. What a brilliant idea! I love that your focus is on success rather than money. I really enjoyed your introduction to Wealthy Affiliate as well. When I write my list one day YOU will be on it!

    Hey Sonia!

    This was a really good and encouraging article. It is always good to see success stories from people who started where you were. I am also a WA member and have benefited from the wisdom of several of these members! It’s a great community of people and I have learned so much already. Thanks again for putting in the work to put this great piece of content out and best of luck with your endeavors!

    Hi Sonia,
    I just read through your articles and want to say thanks for the inspiration! I really appreciate the work that went into this and want to congratulate you on a job well done.
    The only improvement I can think of making is kind of a summary, like a word or two about the responses in point form?
    All in all, a great job!

    • SJB Reply

      Hello Michael,
      Thank you for taking the time to read me and for your comment. I will most certainly take into consideration your advice for my future articles

    This is a remarkable review of the real people that are a part of the network! I really appreciate all of your insight and the wonderful interviews. Thanks so much!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read it. It really is a true image of what Wa is all about. Kindest regards to you.

    Hi Sonia

    You have a beautiful and very well organized website. I can see you’ve been in marketing longer than some but you certainly put the skills you learned at WA to use here and at top quality – excellent!

    I am honored to be listed in your top 20 WA Most Successful. I enjoyed working with you and answering the questions you posed. I found it interesting, and a first, that everything was not financial based. Typically when folks want an interview it’s always the same old gig … how much do you make and how long did it take you to make it? If that was what life was really all about then I feel we’d all be missing the point.

    I can only imagine the time you had narrowing down to the top 20 as there are so many successful and helpful folks within WA. You did an excellent job though, I admire your talent. 🙂 Kudos to everyone on the list and all the other members of WA! You should be on the list too Sonia!!

    Now I am going to sign up for your newsletter … until later … ROCK ON!

      Eric, thank you so much as well! I appreciate the time that you took to answer my questions. I admire you as well and all that you bring to WA! You are so right about the money part. When we focus on money, we forget about all of the important factors such as those mentioned in my article. Thank you again for your time and most importantly, for this amazing comment!

  12. bogyolin Reply

    great article Sonia, love the idea of showing different perspectives of different members but they still have very similar and all positive experience with WA at the same time!

  13. Luther Wood Reply

    Sonia,

    I had a beautiful comment, from the heart, prepared and when I clicked post comment, it went up into the either never to be seen again.

    So, rather than try to reconstruct it, I will summarize it.

    Long story short, Most of us came here from a similar place, looking to improve our lot by learning site building, Internet marketing, affiliate marketing and building a business that would place us in a financial position to enjoy life ever after.

    Sonia, Thank you for having the idea to pursue this project and for your devotion of time, knowledge, and the ability to complete such a project. I also want to thank the participants for their honest appraisal and input of what they have experienced to bring them to the degree of success they have had. It gave me the assurance that I made the right decision to have joined WA and to know if I (we) do the work we, too, have the opportunity to succeed at whatever level we wish too.

    Sonia, my opinion of you has been blown out of the water. You’re the best.

    • SJB Reply

      You have totally touched my heart. What a beautiful comment. Thank you so much! Writing this article has brought so many amazing things to my life. WA is just the best online business that anyone can ever be a part of. I am happy to have met you. You’re writing is top notch! I am flattered that I have impressed you. Thank you again for taking the time to read me.

    Hello Sonia, what a wonderful article about Wealthy Affiliate successful people you wrote. I once opened a trial account for binary options and lost $800 bucks within a few hours. binary options are really something for people who have a ton to spend. I am so glad I found a thorough education at the Wealthy Affiliate university to learn all I need to know about making money online. Thank you for asking me to make a statement for this incredible online platform. Kind regards, Loes

    • SJB Reply

      Hello Loes,
      Thank you for taking the time to read it. I really appreciate the fact that you agreed to participate. Thank you for that. I was honored. Wow! $800 is a lot of money! I think that I am going to write a separate article on this binary option scam! Thank you again!

    Hi Sonia

    I am humbly honoured that you included me in your article. Thank you for highlighting the reasons for our success.
    As Kyle so aptly says, “Pay It Forward” – so simple and yet so profound when you actually put it into practice. I have paid it forward throughout my time at WA and it has been rewarding in itself just to see people moving forward as they find solutions to their queries.

    My motto is extended on the phrase, “Pay It Forward, With An Attitude Of Gratitude”

    Regards

    Edu / TopAchiever

      Hello Edu,

      Regards to you!

You’ll be able to send them a private message. 🙂 Best wishes to you!
