Being disabled can bring frustrations especially when it comes to being on a benefit and not having extra money so today I am going to share what I have been doing to change my circumstances.
Back in 2006, I had life-saving brain surgery which changed my life.
I was an Entertainer, Singer/Songwriter with a career that spanned 26 years and while I was overseas doing a few shows, I became very unwell and had to stop singing and get back to my own country as I knew something was seriously wrong with me.
Surgery and change
Long story short, I had an aneurysm in my left carotid artery at the lower stem of my brain and needed surgery to hopefully keep me alive which it did, fortunately.
I knew my career as an Entertainer was over and for a long time, I looked for something I could do that would not be stressful or involve physical stress on my body.
One night while I was doing some research for a friend, I came across a review written by a guy called, Kevin and I read it.
Little did I know that this review would change my life in the most amazing way.
I hope by sharing my story, it will inspire you to take a look at what I do to help you make some positive changes in your life and hopefully make you feel like I do every day now.
So let’s get into it
When I read Kevins’ review, I got a really good gut feeling so decided to join Wealthy Affiliate for free to take a look inside this learning platform that he said was amazing.
When I started looking around, I saw there were 2 training Programs, one the Online Entrepreneurs Certification which is 50 lessons and then BootCamp which is another 70.
There was a Community of 1000’s of people all helping each other out, answering questions, sharing progress and success stories and alongside that, there was also live chat where you could interact with members from of all ages and all different backgrounds and countries. It was great.
Within 2 days, I knew this platform had what I needed to learn how to build a business for myself online so I paid $19 and became a premium member and got started on the OEC training.
I knew very little about this type of business but from all the research I had done, I knew it was a business I could definitely learn to do and was told it was not difficult which is true.
Anyone can do Affiliate Marketing. All you have to do is get started and learn how and the training we are all given inside Wealthy Affiliate is the best. Easy to understand and each step you do, takes you further on in your business building so all you need do is follow the instructions and lessons and voila, you too, can have your future online.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is when you have a niche/product, you build a website, add great reviews and blog posts to help people and when you have built a foundation, you join Affiliate programs such as eBay, Amazon, Clickbank, JVZoo, Shareasale, Awin and there are only a few.
When you are accepted, you will receive your own links and banners to place on your site and when visitors come to your site, click on your link or banner, they will be taken directly to the company’s website and if they purchase a product, you will receive a commission for this.
You do not handle products, You do not sell the products. All you do is recommend them and help people with their buying needs.
Why Choose Affiliate Marketing?
Over 4 billion people are surfing the Internet looking for products to buy, build, teach, learn and sell and more and more businesses are turning to the Internet to grow sales and add more value for people so Affiliates are needed for 1000’s of niches/products as the numbers continue to rise.
Inside Wealthy Affiliate, there are over 1.4 million people all at different stages of their journey. Some will make it because they are focused, enjoy learning and working consistently, while others come and go because they lack self-belief and a great work ethic and as with every business that’s built, it takes time and learning to do it right and become successful.
I knew nothing about any of this stuff when I started and now I have 2 great online businesses and love everything about Affiliate Marketing.
I really enjoyed the training and have done both programs and you can too.
Think about this for a moment. Imagine putting some time each day into building a business for yourself and overtime earning a great income and having choices for yourself over and above what you have now.
How great will this be for you?
Being a member of Wealthy Affiliate will give you so many new and exciting things to do each day and inside there is a community of people, over 1900 Experts helping out 24/7, technical support 24/7 if you make an error and can’t fix it yourself and the members are all supportive and we all encourage and help each other when needed. To me, there is nothing better and you can do your learning at your own pace and there is no pressure from anyone to do a certain thing at a certain time.
It is totally up to you and your capabilities.
We have people who are returned soldiers, disabled athletes, people who have hearing impairments and all of them are doing great.
It is the perfect place to move forward and feel better about life and all it brings and I hope you do go take a look inside the platform for free to see if it is going to be something you will enjoy.
I will be there to mentor you if you feel you need it as well and look forward to connecting with you on the inside.
If you join and don’t like it, all you do is log out and leave. When you join you will not be asked for credit card details or PayPal or any form of payment unless you decide to move forward as a premium member and if you do this, within the 1st 7 days of your free membership you will get the bonus offer of paying only $19.
You can remain a free member for as long as you want but if you become serious about learning and building a future online, then the premium is the one because it opens all the doors to everything inside this truly awesome place.
So there you go- Thanks for visiting and please share this post with people you know so they can get to know Wealthy Affiliate as well.
Until next time
