I packed this into a “White Paper” type document that we will be going to be packaging up and offering as a PDF to everyone that takes part in the Black Friday offer. This is going to include a breakdown of actionable tasks that will take any newbie, and turn them into a thriving expert within the online world.

What Is The Wealthy Affiliate Program

The Wealthy Affiliate Program

Wealthy AffiliateThe point of today’s post is to help prospective members get acquainted with the aspects of becoming a Wealthy Affiliate member. This is not a review that compares Wealthy Affiliate to other programs. I believe that the Wealthy Affilite Program is standalone complete training system. This is a training platform that prepares you to build a home based that will lead you to financial empowerment and an independent life style.


Wealth Affiliate Training

To begin it should be noted that Wealthy Affiliate is an educational website that is a campus, a community and a complete one stop shop for affiliate marketing training.

Wealthy Affiliate is an online university where students learn every aspect of affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you pick a niche, market, hobby or anything that interests you and then build a website. Through the training you are taught how to monetize it and produce an income. An affiliate is someone who acts as intermediary between a business and people who are willing to purchase your product. The products and services are endless. There are about 4 billion people on the internet and you are taught how to sell to this population.

You could build a website to promote Amazon, Walmart or thousands of other companies that want you to help them move products. You can even promote your own goods and services. This allows you to work from anywhere and at your own convenience.

Wealthy Affiliate

What You Get

Probably the best thing about this training platform is that you get exactly what is advertised. The seven-day free trial is exactly that. Then the first month of premium membership is $19.00 USD so you can see all the advantages of joining. The next step if you decide to continue is to sign up for a yearly membership or take it one month at a time for $47.00/month USD or the regular price of $359.00/year USD. Soon there be a Black Friday sale November 23 – November 26, 2018, for $299.00 a year in USD.


It should be noted that there are no Upsells or pressure to continue. This is an important detail unlike some institutions that get you in and then you can only proceed with additional purchases. If you continue there will be some additional costs such as domains, themes or an additional Jaaxy subscription if you desire(Jaaxy is a key word research tool that is provided to students on course). These purchases are not mandatory. These things are just part of doing business.


When You Join

Joining Wealthy Affiliate means you are committing to building a business. To help you build this business. Wealthy Affiliate has set up course material to train you in the art of affiliate marketing. There are two separate courses and the Certification Course is the place to start.

With the course material there are hours of class room materials for you to review at your own pace. The whole training system is designed to be completed in your own time frame. Please follow this link to The Key To Your Financial Freedom for more information.

You are not alone on this journey as the are hundreds of course mates to connect with in the live chat. Course members from around of the world, some with extensive computer and marketing background are there for you to converse with.

Every Friday there is a Live Webinar for you to take part in and they are never a disappointment. All webinar are recorded and are available for re watching at any time.

Skills Required

There is no educational requirement necessary in order to enroll on course. You of course need a computer and internet access. You do not need coding or a web design background in order to build a world-class website. The course material and classrooms cover everything you need to put your business out to the world. For technical issues there is a 24/7 SiteSupport team that provides quick and top-notch service. For those of us that are confused by some jargon and technical terms it is necessary to follow the course materials, ask questions and use the classrooms and your questions will be answered.

Will You Make Money

The BossThe point of affiliate marketing is to make money and have a life style that removes you from the 9 – 5 life that many endure. The ability to create an income that is greater that working for someone else is certainly there, however this will not happen without your input. The road to financial empowerment will not be straight and smooth therefore you must do the training and apply it. As with any business venture there is a learning curve and it is up to you to make it happen.

Who Is This For

After enrolling in the Premium Membership you will see course members are from around the world and come from every walk of life. From High School students to working people to retirement individuals the course is set up for everyone.

I think that the sooner you start the better. Tomorrow is just one day later. If you are in high school this would be a perfect opportunity to build a business without the stress of supporting yourself. Imagine creating enough income to pay for university or even providing yourself with a full time income.

Should you still be working this is a good sideline while you still have an income and maybe create an income so you can quit your job. Retirement plans from an employee contribution program can leave you short and a second income could make for a better retirement.

Other things to consider with this training is that you can create a website to promote your own goods or service. Other course members have created and manage websites for others.

Set A Goal

It is time to decide to take charge of your future. Take some time and give the 7-day free trial a try. From there your road to financial empowerment is in your hands. As I mentioned above this task of building a business is not quick or necessarily easy. There will be some frustrations and some accomplishments. Rome was not built in a day and money will not pour out of your computer until you get busy and start working. It is no different than going to university for four years and coming out with no job and huge student debt. Nothing happens until you apply yourself.


Here at The Wealthy Citizen my job is to bring to you opportunities to financially empower yourself. I feel it is necessary to be able to make things happen rather than take orders from others. People listen to those that can make change and have an influence. While being an employee has it rewards you will always be limited by others. Wealthy Affiliate can make that happen if you work at it.

If you have any questions or would like to comment please do so at the bottom .

All the Best

What Do You Want To Do With Your Life

The Thinker

The question of What do you want to do with your LIFE is a topic that comes into every ones mind occasionally. It is a good question and should be reviewed as we get older. Everyone’s priorities evolve as we gain more life experience. I hope this story gives someone a different view on life and provides some options that were not obvious before.

This Is A True Story

Play StationI know this young man personally. This story could fit anyone, but I am going to focus on this person. This young man is single, smart and capable. He is very computer-literate and excelled in computer training at school. He can build computers as well as diagnose and fix complicated IT problems. This well-behaved young man successfully completed trade school, however could not find employment in his chosen field.

He is currently employed in a barely above minimum wage job. His employers like him and are trying to find a way to keep him from leaving. His potential exceeds what he is doing. Spare time is spent socializing and taking part in air soft activities.

My Observations

Affiliate- MarketerThis young man spends hour upon hour online gaming. While there is nothing wrong with that, plus he is really good at it as he is with most things, there is no income in it.

This individual has FREE and COMPLETE access to Wealthy Affiliate and with all his skills and knowledge will not or is not motivated to find a NICHE market in his arena of interests and make passive income. He is young enough to overcome the hurdles of Affiliate Marketing without pressure.

If you are going to sit in a chair for hours using a computer anyway, why not try to make a living at it.

What To Do

Regardless of your age if you work hard for a few years building a business then you can spend the rest of your life doing what you want. I don’t think we have to live and accept a job that delivers low satisfaction for forty years so we can retire to a poor pension. It is easy when you are young with a little of money just to enjoy life. When life gives you more responsibilities and it surprises you, it is hard to catch up.

The Answer

Wealthy Affiliate

The answer is Wealthy Affiliate. I have not found anything yet that for the 98 cents a day it costs to participate that can give you the opportunities that Wealthy Affiliate provides you. Wealthy Affiliate is a complete training platform plus academic community that provides all the training and information you need to become successful at Affiliate Marketing.

What does it cost to online game. Buying games, plus the hardware, headsets, good chairs? It is easily less than the cost of learning how to do Affiliate Marketing. I personally have nothing against gaming. This example is a cost comparison and the what it would cost you to start a business, a business that could produce revenue that would more than a person could make as an employee.

The Boss

It is necessary to seize the day and take charge of your own life. Our educational system does not prepare us to be self-sufficient entrepreneurs. We are taught to complete high school, then proceed to some post secondary education while racking up thousands of dollars of debt in student loans.

Try it Out

The starting point for this course is the Seven-Day-Free Trial. In this trial session you will get to build two free websites and get your feet wet in affiliate marketing. Following this there is the decision to go for the premium membership. There is a one-month Premium Membership available for $19.00 so you can further explore this business. Subsequent months are $47.00/month, however the best price is the $359.00/year or 98 cents a day for world-class training. I would recommend that you follow this link to my “The Key To Your Financial Freedom “page for more complete information.

The Training

Wealthy Affiliate

The training process has a four step process with step by step instruction for you to begin building your own business. The carefully prepared lesson plans need to be followed in order for you to succeed. It is not necessary to have any previous experience in order to participate. You need a computer and the desire to succeed.

It is necessary for you remember that you are building your own business. This takes time and there is not a quick rich button available here. Course members have build very successful web based businesses and you can too.

I have stated this in other posts that you are not alone. Wealthy Affiliate is a community as much as it is a training platform. There are currently 1,400,000 student from 193 countries that you can talk to and ask questions.

Membership consists of everyone and anyone from high school students to retired professionals. There are working folks that are trying to supplement their income to retired people boosting their pensions.

In Closing

I tell the young man in my story that you can plan your days or you can have someone plan them for you. It is crazy that someone will tell you that 2 – 5 years in business is a long time to get rich, but they don’t feel that 40 years at a job is a long time to stay broke. Financial Empowerment is the ability to live how you want, when you want and be able to make decisions that can benefit everyone.

Click on the banner below to get started. It won’t cost you anything. There will be no pressure and there are no Upsells. You deserve financial freedom.


That’s my story for today. Please comment or ask a question below. Have a wonderful day.

Best Work From Home Careers – 2018


Everyone’s intention is to be debt free and have financial freedom. This is hard to accomplish working for someone else. The question is how do we achieve Financial Empowerment. The answer is to work for your self. So what is the best work from home career for you this year?

Your Options

With so any options available on the internet it is necessary to narrow the choices available to you. Probably like most people looking for passive income you probably don’t have a large amount of disposable income to start a business.

An issue that has to be considered is that when doing your due diligence on any web based work from home business is the hidden costs or Upsells that might be a surprise after you sign up. Some companies will have you sign up for $49.00, but to complete the whole course will cost you $12,000.00. Be careful.

I believe that a home business has to fit your lifestyle and available time. It should be noted that when you are building a business the project must be taken seriously and be approached as a business. You will no longer be an employee, you are the boss. Think like a boss.

The Best Option

Wealthy Affiliate

One of the best options I have found for making money online is to participate in Affiliate Marketing. This is best done by becoming a member of Wealthy Affiliate. This a training platform where you can transform your ideas into profits.

Through a four step process and a close application of the training you can build a business that will provide you with an income while you sleep. That is the key to Financial Empowerment.

98 Cents a Day

98 Cents a Day

What can you do for 98 cents a day? We have all spent money on nickel and dime products. There is nothing wrong with that. The neat thing is that for 98 cents a day you can build a business. You can build a business that requires no inventory, buildings or staff. It can be done from the comfort of your own home. Members of Wealthy Affiliate have produced Blogs that produce thousands of dollars a month.

There is a catch to this that can not be denied. Affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is not a few key board strokes and the money will pour out of the back of the computer. It is a business that takes time build and it takes time to build a customer base and loyalty. Success depends on your dedication and application of the training.

What You Get For 98 Cents A Day

In Review

There is not a better deal on the internet than 98 cents a day to build a web based passive income stream. Stop being an employee and become the boss. Financial Empowerment starts with a dream and a decision.

If your are undecided give the 7-day free trial a test drive. It does not have all the privileges of the Premium membership.

Passive Income Ideas – 2018

Build a Business

Passive Income Ideas

Passive income is the ability to build an online business that utilizes automated processes around the clock to allow you to capture income while you sleep. Passive income is a necessary factor in securing your financial empowerment.

Passive income can take on many forms and one of the easiest is to develop a savings program and learn how to invest your saved income. The best time to start that is as soon as you start working. It is best if a person could put 10 to 15 % a month of your net income away into a retirement fund. If actually is difficult for you to save be sure to utilize your company retirement fund. You will find you don’t miss the extra spending money and when invested properly it will grow into a nice sum in a few years. Personal debt reduction is necessary if you are looking for money to invest. Follow this link to my post on Personal Debt Reduction.

The Financial Adviser

Financial Advisor
Bull and Bear

There are two roads to take when considering a financial adviser. The first is to hire someone to look after your retirement fund. This will cost you in management fees, but if you don’t want to spend the time managing your own account this is an option. Choose your adviser wisely and ask lots of questions such as what training do you have, how much do you charge, who will be working with me, who regulates you, do I get monthly reports, how do I withdraw funds? Do not be afraid to shop around.

The second step is to learn to be your own financial adviser. This takes study and good decision-making. There are lots of online resources available to begin your education in retirement planning. Most banks have online investing and brokerages to get you going on your wealth building journey along with options with what ever investing chicle you chose such as stocks, mutual funds or commodities. Some people have had good success with this approach. It is an option that is not for every one.

Find Something To Sell

Affiliate Markerter

Finding something to sell as passive income requires a product to move and a medium to move it. Finding something to sell can start with your passions or skills. Do you have a thought that the world needs to know about or some specific training that the word needs?

Passive income comes from the idea that you can set up shop from home and work in your spare time until the moment comes when you can quit your job and live off your passive income. The internet has 4 billion daily users and utilizing websites and internet marketing it is possible to create income that a person would find hard when working as an employee.

I really believe that the sooner a person get thinking about passive income the better positioned you will be when some unforeseen event causes you to leave your job. Imagine if you started in high school discovering and finding your niche market. It would be possible to go to university and not have to worry about student loans.

Perhaps you are employed in a job you don,t enjoy. Finding your niche market and getting your passive income started would relieve you from the paycheck to paycheck rut. Don’t find yourself learning to live with a job you dislike just for the salary.

Internet Marketing

Internet affiliate marketing and building a home business is a task that takes time to establish. There is no Easy Button and there is not a money slot in the side of your computer where cash flows out. The best part of a home business is that you do not need a building, inventory or staff.

To start Internet Marketing and begin creating your passive income a person needs training and an education where you can focus on building a business rather than pulling a bunch of resources together and trying to piece it all together.

This is where Wealthy Affiliate comes to you with a one stop shop where you can build websites and get trained on how to build a web base business for less than a dollar a day.

Wealthy Affiliate helped over 217,000 student get started with their online business last year. Wealthy Affiliate is more than a training platform, it is a community of over 800,000 students from 195 countries that you can network with any hour of the day or night.

Build A Home Business


Building a home business can be an exciting adventure. In my last post we talked about the tools required to work with Wealthy Affiliate to build your own on line Affiliate Marketing business. I have stated many times that building a home business is necessary to get out of the paycheck to paycheck rut.

Many home based businesses are expensive to get into and require time and dedication to succeed. In my past I tried commodity trading. I loved the concept of this business, however between a flying job and the fast paced action of the markets I could not keep up and decided to focus on flying exclusively.

In the 1990,s a $5000.00 margin account had a life span of 90 days before the newbie trader was broke. That did not include a computer and the training. For the right person this is a fabulous occupation. All the training courses at the time would promote the unlimited earning potential of that trading from home business. It is not for everybody.

The Cost Of Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate

In comparison the cost of Wealthy Affiliate is virtually nothing when a person signs up for the Premium membership. The cost of less than a dollar a day or $359.00/year for an all-inclusive world-class training platform can not be beat. We all have spent money on things of no return and that’s OK. It just puts the cost of Wealthy Affiliate in perspective. The earning potential of Affiliate marketing is limited only by your own ambition and like building any business there is a time and input requirement. There is no EASY button, however you can achieve the earning potential of any business with a building, inventory and staff all from the comfort of your own home.

Being Tech Savvy

Be Successful Affiliate Marketing

Business Path


To be successful in the home based business of Affiliate Marketing there are several factors that have to be in place.

The factors are :

1) The Tool needed

2) The Market you choose

3) Perseverance

We must remember that Affiliate Marketing is a relationship between you and a company or an Affiliate Marketing Platform. You sell their products with a website you create and in turn earn commissions. On your website you will write content that is informative, educational and interesting enough to build a following.

The Market You Choose

The choosing of a product and/or niche does not have to be hard. It is entirely possible that the first market and website you build will not be your only website. My first website is about Cat Care. It is an education and a learning platform. It is an Amazon Affiliate website combined with my educational content. Follow this link to Cat Care for a look. Many students have more than one website.

The market you choose to promote will be and should be something that is of interest or a passion of yours. This makes the writing of content easier and natural. As you write content for your audience you will become and expert and with that build a following with what ever product you choose to market. Some students have built a website based on a single product and have produced a very profitable business. Follow this link to see the successful Foot Ball Snack Helmet website. The details of picking a niche market is covered in the training.

The Four Step Process Of Affiliate Marketing

Wealthy Affiliate

The First step is to choose an interest. This interest is something that you enjoy and is something you think the world needs. This could be your own product or one of the many products a person could promote that is available from an Affiliate Marketing Platform such as Rakuten, CJ Affiliate and ShareASale. Another concept is to pick a product from Amazon and promote a single product. Another method of finding an interest is to go to Google and type in any product plus Affiliate. For example type in watches + Affiliate and review the available Affiliate choices.

The second step is to build a website. This is covered in the Seven-Day Free trial. This step is exciting as you find a theme to promote your website. Themes are changeable so if you find something more appropriate it’s possible to change.

The third step is to attract visitors to your website. This is where you develop the skills of content writing and the use of Key Word Search Tools to attract a segment of the four billion internet users and potential customers to your website. The Premium Membership will teach you how to use Search Engine Optimization or SEO plus various social methods of marketing so you can build a reader following.

The last step is to earn Revenue. Generation of the revenue you earn is proportional to your input and personal dedication. When you want a supplemental income or if you want a full time income that is one of the goals you will set for your self.
