Wealthy Affiliate, was absolutely a no-brainer for starting my online business.  I must confess, starting an online business was not one of my goals for 2014. I did however, have a goal of starting a business, but I had no thought of taking it online.

While I wanted 2014 to be different, a year of change, some of my immediate goals were: become a certified proofreader, look into owning my own business, and try online dating. Yep, my family would like to see me married. Oh well. What can I say?

Fast Forward

I had my information on my chosen proofreading course, and I actually registered on a dating site and flirted with someone. Did he flirt back? Yes he did! I am happy to report. Anyway, let’s not get carried away here, back to business.

I knew what I wanted to do as far as having a business was concerned and from time to time, I’d look in the classifieds for possible rental spaces and businesses that were up for sale. I was also hoping to get my brother’s help in the process.

Opportunity Knocks wallet with money

While looking at work at home jobs related to proofreading, because I like the idea of working from home, I stumbled on to Wealthy Affiliate (WA) and here I am with my own online business.

Did my goals change? Absolutely not! I simply saw more opportunities to achieve my goals and so much more, being a part of the WA community.

Not a Newbie to Online Business

While I had some experience related to having an online business (some years ago), the experience at Wealthy Affiliate has been extremely different by far. Although I did not create an account right away, I learnt so much for free, it was simply amazing.

  2. Vanessa,

    Happy New Year to you, love your site and I loved this read.
    Your thoughts on work ethic and what will make anyone successful is right on the money.
    It takes learning and work.

    So many think they can go online and throw money at a guaranteed sure to be able to retire
    unbelievable business opportunity that they fail to ever really check things out.

    Thanks for the positive words on WA, all my best to you and yours,


    1. Hi Gary,
      Thanks for dropping by. I certainly appreciate your kind words and greetings. All the best to you and yours as well, as we begin this fantastic new year. You know Gary, I think some people underestimate the level of effort required to be successful at any thing albeit business or otherwise. It does not happen overnight and get rich quick schemes are simply that, schemes. That’s one of the reasons why I did not just jump into any online opportunity, but I took my time to find the option that offered the best possible opportunity and the right one for me and that was Wealthy Affiliate.
