Wealthy Affiliate Review by 2 Experienced Marketers With Over 10 Years In The Trenches!
Over 50% of workers will NOT have enough money when they retire – Are You One of Them?
We are brought up to believe that we should go to school, get a job, get a good pension and then retire comfortably for the rest of our lives. Let’s face it, with people living longer and longer, you can look forward to the possibility of maybe over 2 decades or more after retirement! That in itself, is a whole new adventure. No kids to hold you back and, you hope, enough money to enjoy your autumn years.
But the reality is so very different! So many people are left broke only a few years after they retire and have to eke out the small monies they get from the state. We have to make decisions and choices that we never thought we would be faced with. And all because we didn’t plan ahead and get a nice pot of money to supplement our pension! Too many people end up going from J.O.B (Just Over Broke) to J.G.B (Just Getting By). What kind of a life is that?
If this sounds familiar, then we were exactly in the same boat just a few years ago. Like most people we didn’t save for the future – life get’s in the way, doesn’t it?
We know of many people who get to a certain point in their lives where they just decide that it is too late to change.
If that is you, Think again and keep reading…..
In today’s world it is possible to create a solid financial future for yourself and your loved ones at any point in your life. And whatever walk of life you are from. That is, if you are prepared to let someone show you the way!
We are Jon and Debbie Lake and we live in the South West of the UK in a place where palm trees grow – yes really! 10 Years ago we both had good jobs with a future and a good pension, and had no cares in the world. Well, apart from the day to day pressures of life.
Then within 9 months we had both been laid off, both victims of the global recession of 2008. Both of us had no particular skills to speak of so getting jobs of a comparable wage was not likely. We were staring down the barrel of a lifetime of J.G.B – we were only 44 and 39! Our families told us that everything would be alright and that something would come along!
There is a well known quote “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
If we had listened to them we would both be in dead end jobs even now, just getting by and with no hope of achieving all the dreams we have. For us, we had, had enough of working to create someone else’s dreams.
So, we took a leap of faith. Here is a short video that we know you will enjoy. It is all about taking a leap of faith.
In 2008, we took OUR leap of faith! We decided to start our own online business. Now, let me tell you that at that time, I (Jon), could just about send an email and do a search on the internet. Anything more was a step too far! We learned that it was possible to build a business online without being a technical whizz kid and by working the hours that we wanted to work. We use the word work loosely, as what we do we don’t see as work, we love it even now.
Fast forward 11 years and we are still creating dreams and making a solid financial future for our latter years. And not just for us, but for our families as well.
If your subconscious mind is telling you that:
- you are too old
- maybe you don’t have any spare time
- you don’t have any technical skills
- you don’t know what to start a business about
then you are not alone. We thought those things too!
But we believed in ourselves and took the decision that we did not want to live the rest of our lives just getting by (J.G.B). Now, we are not going to lie, we struggled for the first year or so. Mainly because we did not have a training program to follow or people who we could ask when we got stuck. It was very lonely!
It wasn’t until we found a mentor and a proven
Along the way we found an online training community that has driven our online business forward more than anything over the whole time we have been online. Inside this amazing community are people from all over the world and of all ages. This lady is running an online business at 80!
Since 2005, this community of self created entrepreneurs has helped over 1.5 million start an online business. We have never found a more helpful place online in all of our nearly 11 years in business. Because the members are spread throughout the world (we even came across someone from the Solomon Islands the other day!), there is always somebody there to answer your questions and help you out. And trust us, you WILL have questions and need help from time to time. I was once told that there is no such thing as a stupid question! It is so true.
Imagine, being part of a community that enables you to create an online venture based around a topic that you love, that will enable you to earn an income 24/7 365 from now until the day you switch it off! Put in the time and the effort and you will have a financial future that you could only have dreamed about. There is no better way than to create your own destiny.
One of the many benefits of being the master of your own destiny, is the time freedom it gives you. The ability to be an active part of your kids growing up, never missing a school play, having the money to enjoy family holidays and days out. It is all within your grasp when you start an online business.
Above all else, it is FUN!
Our goal is to inspire you to jump, to take that leap of faith, to make retirement something to look forward to not something to be scared of.
Let’s face it, all we ALL want are just 3 things in life – Peace, Freedom and Financial Security.
Let’s make it happen!
We have been in the trenches for nearly 11 years so we have learned the hard way, so that you don’t have to!
So, what to do now?
We did our due diligence and looked at training programs available online for people who are looking to start their own online business. There are a load out there and they vary in what they offer.
Many people, maybe you are one of them, will be reading this thinking “I don’t want to get burnt again!”
Well, we are happy to tell you that with what we have found You won’t!
We joined Wealthy Affiliate and have found it to be an incredible community.
Here are just some of the benefits of being a part of Wealthy Affiliate
Now you can stay a Free Member for ever, if you wish, and that’s OK. In fact you do not even have to give your credit card details to register! Now that’s comforting.
But if you do decide at any time to Upgrade to Premium it still only costs $49 per month and I can get you a discount on your first month down to just $19.
But don’t tell everyone, they will all want it!!!!
We are in and around the community every day so you can always get hold of us, along with the thousands of others that are there at any given time of the day.
I would say that if you are just getting started you need to keep focused as it is easy to get blown away with interacting with people on WA. On the flip side if you have a bit of experience in online marketing then you may want to whizz through the first parts of the training as you will know most of it.
Now compare this to one of the other leading online business training platforms out there – Super Affiliate Network
From choosing your first niche to creating your very first website (and believe me being able to tell your friends that you own a website is a great feeling!), the awesome training takes you at the right speed so that even a complete newbie can do it. There are many members on WA that are in their 70’s and older!
So if you have been trawling the internet trying to make sense of where to go to create your first online business, then look no further.
We know that you are probably thinking, yes but do these people actually make money? What are the potential earnings from your own online business?
Well, take a look at some of these people:
