Work At Home Scams

House Construction

Those of us who go to work every day to be providers and work hard for our money do not like being scammed out our paycheck.  Let’s look at some ideas on how to protect yourself.  As we try to find ways to supplement our incomes we go to the internet to find work from home solutions. The internet is full of promises. It is upon you to think clearly and do your due diligence.

Work From Home Due Diligence

The BBB. Better Business Bureaus collect information on suspicious companies and scams. When you check be specific and ask a lot of questions.

In Canada the RCMP has resources available to help you check for fraud. Check with your local police service to see if they have a fraud tip line or website.

If a potential Work From Home site is more interested in personal information and credit card numbers instead of providing information on the job – RUN.

Always do an internet search for reviews. Check with social media or do a YouTube search.

Real doctors don’t have to keep telling you they are a real doctor. Real businesses don’t always have to continually reinforce that they are legitimate.

Doubt every thing until it is proved otherwise. Emotional sales pitches and long videos with no time progress bar are a good sign that they are working on your emotions to hopefully get your credit card number. Always check the”About Me” or contact pages to see if the contact information is usable.

You should not have to buy a job. Job training is usually provided by the employer. The employer should provide you with a pay scale, when and how you get paid.

Trust your instincts. I have a real story where this really paid off. I personally knew this gentleman that  was a travelling evangelist. One day I get a nice letter in the mail asking for funding to support his Gold mines in Africa. I did not participate and then years later I read a news story where he was telling his story of how all his dreams fell apart and probably a lot of investors cash.

Do not give personal information to anyone who is more interested in your contact information than giving you useful information.

Work From Home

The work from home solution I have for you is not about a job, but buying education so you can build your own business. There are no get-rich-quick programs or easy buttons to your Financial Empowerment. That’s why I want to present to you the following.

Wealthy Affiliate

Are You A Good Employee


A good employee is a valued member of any business team. An employer should realize that every employee should be recognized as a significant contributor to a successful business. What happens when through no fault of your own you are no longer considered a valued employee. Today’s post will help you prepare for that unfortunate time when your value as an employee is over.

The Wage Earner

As a wage earner we are limited in our earning capacity by the industry we are in. Make no mistake in thinking that I feel that being an employee is wrong. The world needs people to get the job done. No matter the industry there has to be someone who has facilitated some event to get a task completed.

I recently read an article that stated by 2030, 800 million jobs in the developed world will be lost due to automation, robotics and artificial intelligence. If this is true how many middle class people will find themselves pushed out the door.

That scenario should cause you to at least consider what would happen if you are laid off, replaced or completely dissatisfied by your work environment. I have seen where people leave their jobs not because of the work, but because of the employer/co-worker environment.

The Solution

Are you a happy employee? If so that is great. I mentioned in my previous post to be an active participant in your company’s benefit program. If you don’t have this capability be sure to start saving and contributing to a retirement plan.

The next step is and especially if you are still working for someone else is to start a business. I am strongly suggesting starting an internet business so that a person can incorporate business building into your regular routine.

Wealthy Affiliate

The business I am going to promote is Affiliate Marketing through Wealthy Affiliate. The reason I find this is a really good solution to creating additional income is that the cost of training is very affordable and online. The $359.00/ year tuition is within every ones reach and the training is outstanding.

Building a business while you are still working gives you the time to get it established and if something should happen that would require you to leave your employment, everything will be in place for you to continue as your own boss and living life on your own terms.

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. People engaged in this business have created enough income to become self-sufficient. As with any business it takes time and effort to become established. Some of my course members have broken the $10,000/month goal. This does not happen overnight and is entirely possible from becoming a Wealthy Affiliate course member.

Affiliate Marketing starts with a four step program as illustrated below.

Wealthy AffiliateChoose an Interest

This a step where you pick a topic of interest, a product or information that you think someone in the 4 billion daily internet users would be interested in. Then the market audience you capture will buy your product.

Build a Website

Through Wealthy Affiliate you will have a one stop shop for you to create a world-class website. Becoming a Premium member not only will you be taught how to build a website, you be taught how to market your website. As a Premium Member you will be able to look at hundreds of course member websites for inspiration and ideas.

Attract Visitors

The course material delivers training on how to market your website. From Google searches to using Social Media. There is an abundance of tutorials plus weekly live training designed to help you monetize your website.

Earn Revenue

The product of your hard work. An Affiliate Marketer earns revenue through commissions form whatever marketing venue you choose to use. There is no end to the available affiliate programs to get involved with such as Amazon, or Affiliate Networks such as Rakuten, CJ Affiliate and ShareASale. You could even promote your own product or idea.

As with any business there is a period of development and growth. This time period is determined by your own time commitment. Not withstanding that it is possible to build a business that you can pass down to the next generation.

If you are working, keep working and build your business. If you are retired and need additional income this is for you. This business is perfect for the stay at home mum or dad. Wealthy Affiliate has students from all over the world and from every walk of live, the high school student, middle class wage earners, doctors and lawyers plus internet professionals. Wealthy Affiliate is not only an educational university it is a campus with many resources available to all Premium Member students. Please follow this link to my page “Wealthy Affiliate – The Key To Your Financial Freedom“.

The time to prepare for you next job is before you get desperate. Do not find your self saying “What Am I Going To Do Now”. I certainly don’t want to scare anyone. I don’t believe in scare tactics. Being prepared for your future is as necessary as having a spare tire or some savings when the washing machine breaks. It is always easier when you are not stressed.

Wealthy Affiliate

Personal Debt Reduction

Debt Reduction Strategies


The road to Financial Empowerment begins with getting yourself out of debt and the finding a way to produce substantial income from your own business. Most wage earners are in debt and sometimes it seems like a bottomless pit. Let’s get out of the pit and live life on our own terms.

Are You Living Beyond Your Means

Getting into debt is easy. Getting out is hard. The thing is we don’t even have to be foolish with our money to get into debt. Buying a home, raising a family, student loans, getting a car are expenses that we are all faced with. The ease of credit makes buying easy. It would be nice if we were taught how to avoid debt in high school and we should be taught how to make money after school.

One year my wife and I decided we should see where our money goes. We tracked every cent we spent right down to the parking meters. It is interesting to see where your money goes. So it begins, where could we stop nickle and dime our self to death.

Don’t Lease your car. It’s nice to have a new car, but unless you have a business to write your lease off you are paying a premium for that vehicle. A one-year-old car will give you just as good a ride with a much smaller payment. If you can try to do as much maintenance yourself to avoid expensive garage fees.

Do you buy lunch every day? A week of buying lunch out will buy you lunch groceries for a month and you will probably eat better. Go to grocery stores with customer incentive programs. These programs will save you hundreds of dollars a month.

Don’t pay credit card interest rates. If possible pay your card off every month. If you have multiple cards with large payments go to a bank and get a consolidation loan and pay them off. Then you can work off the debt at a much lower interest rate.

Piggy Bank

I have mentioned in other posts that if you have a company pension plan be sure to contribute the max you can every month. It’s a forced savings plan and it is easy to get used to the deduction. Always participate in the company health plan as long as you are employed there.

Tax time might provide some special benefits to you. Consult a tax specialist where you live and you might have tax breaks you were not aware of such as tax-deductible contributions or home business breaks.

These points listed above might sound harsh, but sacrifices might have to be made. This does mean you have to live like a hermit but scaling back could be necessary. Keep a positive attitude, eat well, exercise and work towards a goal of debt reduction.

Start Your Own Business

The start of your own business sets you on the path for financial empowerment. I have realized that getting financially independent does not happen working for someone else. When you are participating in a debt reduction program this is an opportunity to research business ideas. On path to take is a Work at Home Business that you can start while you are still working.


The home business opportunity that I would like to present to you is Wealthy Affiliate. If you have read my other posts you will already know what I am talking about.

Wealthy AffiliateWealthy Affiliate is an online university and campus that provides students with the training and guidance necessary to participate in affiliate marketing. It is comprehensive well laid out program that is flexible enough to incorporate into your daily routine while you are still employed. 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.


I don’t know of any other institution where a student gets so much for the price. A person can try a starter membership seven day free trial. There is a bonus of getting the first month of Premium Membership for $19.00. Every month after that is $47.00 or the best price is the $359.00/ year full premium membership. There are no Upsells and the only other purchases will be some subscription items which are not necessary and Domains which will be necessary as you build your website or sites. Please click on this link that takes you to my”Wealthy Affiliate – The Key To Financial Freedom” page for more details

Affiliate MarketerI must tell you that affiliate marketing is a serious business. If you don’t work hard and apply the training it will not work. Any Post Secondary training requires effort to be successful. Income potential is entirely based on your own input and targeted market. There are 4 billion people on the internet and your job will be to sell to them.


An online business allows you to produce as much income as a brick and mortar business without the necessity to have staff, a building or inventory. There has never been a better time to start your own business .

What Is Financial Empowerment


Why would anyone want to pursue financial empowerment? Why not just work at your job and accept the results of someone else’s decisions. With a vast majority of people being dissatisfied with their current employment now is the time to pursue Financial Empowerment.

What Is Financial Empowerment

In the new Justice League movie Barry Allen asks Bruce Wayne – What’s your super power? Bruce says I am ” Rich”. Being rich gives Bruce Wayne unlimited opportunities. That’s the fantasy part.

In reality Financial Empowerment allows you to live life on your own terms. Financial Empowerment is the ability define your days, help those around you and live your retirement without stress. These terms are defined by you and are product of your own efforts. In reality achieving the financial freedom you might want is not easy or quick. There are no get-rich-quick programs. Usually anything worthwhile takes time. Any post secondary education takes time, money and effort to complete and gives you the opportunity for employment.

Where To Start

Piggy Bank


The place to start your Financial Empowerment is where you are sitting right now. Let’s begin.

First : Are you are living with in your means? This means don’t overspend and stay away from credit.

Second : Are you participating in your company retirement plan? It is a good habit to develop a way to save money from your current income. Try saving 10- 15% from every paycheck.

Third : Learn how to invest. This task can be as big as you want it to be. Some people learn the ropes and trade stocks and commodities and trade as well as a broker. This takes a great deal of study and requires a margin account to be a player. This is a popular idea and is not for every one.

For the average wage earner another option to investing is to find a reputable financial/retirement adviser and make regular paycheck contributions. Its best to start when you are young, but if you are not young start now.

Fourth : Learn how to reduce your taxes. If you are going to pay income tax reduce that amount by making charitable contributions. There are lots of credible charities to chose from, be sure they give you a usable tax receipt that your countries tax system will acknowledge.

Fifth : Start a business. This will give you tax breaks and allow you to pursue your entrepreneurial desires. The type of business to start begins with what you are passionate about. Starting a brick and mortar business requires financing and a good plan. Are you ready to leave your job and pursue your dream full time?

Work From Home

This is a great idea that you can work on when you are not ready to quit your job, or you are still at school. Your hours are flexible and can be fit into your daily routine.

Work From Home Online

What’s So Great About

Wealthy Affiliate

In my previous posts I have promoted Wealthy Affiliate. Today I am going to describe what is so great about this educational platform. The end result of Wealthy Affiliate is to make money online. The amount of income you want to generate is set by the student. Do you want a full income or just an additional supplement. This is determined by your perseverance and determination.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate

The Thinker

Wealthy Affiliate is an online university designed to provide students with the necessary skills to succeed in internet affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing is a marketing agreement in which an online retailer pays a commission to an Affiliate Marketer with an external website for sales generated from its referrals.

How Does a Person Accomplish This

This is accomplished by four steps

  1. Chose an Interest
  2. Build a website
  3. Attract visitors
  4. Earn revenue

The First step of choosing an interest is a personal one. It is usually something you are passionate about and you think the world needs to be aware of. The possibilities are endless. I have a website dedicated to the rescue and raising of cats. Some students promote their own businesses and products.

The Second step of Building a website is easily accomplished with the Site Rubix feature of Wealthy Affiliate. The training provided on course guides you through the process of website creation and domain purchase. Believe it or not an experienced individual can have a website on the WWW in 15 minutes. This is where the work begins. Your new website needs to be populated and organized to be ready for business.


The Third step is to attract visitors. During the training you are trained in various methods of attracting traffic. One of the methods is through the acquisition of organic traffic by researching appropriate keywords that the search engines like Google and Bing will find and give you solid rankings on the WWW. This is accomplished by using the in house Jaaxy SEO tool. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. Jaaxy has a free option for students plus two subscription options.

The Fourth step is Earning Revenue. That is the purpose and end result of all your work. It is possible to generate income that will allow you to live your life at your own pace and convenience. This is why we want to be affiliate marketers.

Who Is This For

Wealthy Affiliate and affiliate marketing is for anyone who wants to devote the time to accomplish this goal. It must be mentioned that this is a university and the building of a business. When you enroll in any educational program the results achieved are directly related to your effort. This is not a get-rich-quick program. If you do not apply your self here there will be no rewards, but imagine that you can do as much business from your desk as a brick and mortar store with significantly less overhead.

Wealthy Affiliate has thousands of students that range from high school students to tradesmen, retired individuals to doctors and lawyers. It is perfect for the stay at home individual that wants an income supplement.

Wealthy Affiliate is also a campus with 24/7 support both from students and technical support. The only tools you will need are a computer and an internet service. Do not worry about your computer skills as they will develop as you proceed through the course.

What Does It Cost

The best place to start with this program is with the Seven-Day Free Trial. This will allow you to get exposure and see if this is for you. The next option is to go with a Premium Membership for $19.00 for the first month. This will expose you to the advantages of being a Premium Member. There is no obligation for you to continue and there will be no sales pressure on you. The best option is to purchase the Full Premium membership for $359.00 a year. That means for the price of a cup of coffee a day you will have access to the full training suite. There will be nothing else to purchase during your training other than a few incidentals like Domains (.com, .NET, .org). To get started there are free themes for your website and as you gain experience there will be themes that you can purchase.

Steps To Becoming Wealthy

Fork in the road

The Power Of The Wealthy Citizen

Through every ones life there comes a time when you come to a cross road. The cross roads appears all through our lives. Decisions need to be made and be they right or wrong we have to live with them. Some of these cross road issues are hard because we do not posses the necessary information to make good decisions.

Our educational systems and some people of influence leave us with only enough knowledge to be good tax payers. At the cross roads the decisions are made.

The questions could be, I don’t like my job or should I move away. It could be I need more money, how do I get it. I am retiring soon and I can’t afford it. If only we had the power to change things.

That is the purpose of this website is to bring to you The Power of the Wealthy Citizen. This power is knowledge.

The power you can acquire here is that you can start your own business and run your own life. I think everyone wants to be financially independent. That independence gives you the power provide, help and live a lifestyle at your pace and be limited by your own imagination.

If you need a change here are some steps to get started.

Develop A Plan

Wealthy Affiliate

Find a way to educate yourself ( I have the answer for that. It’s Wealthy Affiliate ). Get started on the education and implement the training. Don’t quit your job until you are ready to lose your paycheck.

Don’t Overspend

Don’t overspend beyond your means. Buy what you can afford and try to stay away from credit. If your credit cards are maxed out go to a bank and get a consolidation loan and get away from high interest rates. I remember reading some financial advice stating that a person does not have to buy the best groceries. That’s bad advice. Eat healthy and exercise and you will be in better shape to complete your plan.

Put What Money You Have To Work

If you can save 15% of your paycheck. Do not miss out by not contributing to a company retirement fund. If necessary find a financial adviser to help you invest and save. Choose your adviser carefully and make sure you get value for your fees. If you have your own business a good accountant will save you stress at Tax Time and give you tips on tax saving advice.

Start Your Own Business

 This is the key to your financial independence. While we are all busy with life an option to getting a business started is to have an at home business. The answer to this is Wealthy Affiliate. Affiliate marketing and its spin-offs could give you the opportunity to live life on your own terms.

The education available at Wealthy Affiliate will give you business opportunities limited only by your imagination. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to conduct an online business as an affiliate marketer. Do you want to promote someones goods by being an affiliate, do you have your own product or service to sell? It its even possible to build websites for customers and put your skills to work supporting clients. The best part of this is it can be done from the comfort from your own home and at your own convenience. Imagine your office looking like this and doing as much business as a brick and mortar store.

Office desk

Financial empowerment allows you to make decisions in many ways. Developing a lifestyle that appeals to you plus the ability to be an influence in your community is something that likely won’t happen as you are employed by someone else. Politicians listen to rich people. Rich people can be powerful positive voices in the world.

Wealthy Affiliate is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Building a business takes time and effort. A university education take years to complete and leaves you with enormous debt. Then you can go and find a job. Building a career takes decades and then you can retire on your pension plan which may not be adequate.

If you have read this far its time to give Wealthy Affiliate a try starting with the Seven-Day Free Trial. If at this time you are still unsure take advantage of this BONUS. The first month of Premium Membership can be had for $19.00. This allows you to participate in full membership privileges for one month. The following months are $47.00/ month. The best deal is a full year subscription for $359.00 a year or 98 cents a day. There is nothing else to buy except some incidentals relevant to the business such as website Domains or premium website themes. There are no Up Sells.


I am sure you will find that the training and the Wealthy Affiliate community educational and exciting. For more information follow this link to Wealthy Affiliate – The Key To Your Financial Freedom.

Every journey begins with the first step and continues with one foot in front of the other. This journey up the mountain can have some stumbles but with perseverance and the proper guidance the climb is easier.

This decision is probably going to be made when a person decides that their financial situation or work environment needs a change. Other influences could be that the retirement fund is falling short or medical bill are piling up. What would really be nice is if we realized we could take control of our financial future when we are young.

In these days and times the next common path is an internet search. We look for work from home, or even steps to financial freedom. I am going to give you a solution. The solution is Wealthy Affiliate. Wealth Affiliate is an educational platform that has an all-inclusive training solution in the business of affiliate marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate

Affiliate Marketing is where a person takes a specific interest or product and then builds a website to promote your passion. Then with the education provided you learn to attract traffic to your site and generate revenue.

Get Training

The next step is to get the training necessary to conduct affiliate marketing. Wealthy Affiliate has a complete training system that you can complete at your convenience. The best place to start is with the seven-day free trial. After seven days there is the opportunity to go with the Premium membership that includes many more privileges as you can imagine.

The cost for all this training is very affordable with nothing else to buy other than a few incidentals necessary for conducting your business. The yearly package costs $359.00/ year. The incidentals include the price of a domain(.com ,.org, .net) or website theme. These products are available through Wealthy Affiliate meaning you do not have to shop elsewhere. There are no up sells meaning you do not have to buy expensive products to continue with the program.

The important point here is that you are building an internet business. Your business that depends on your input and time. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Building a business takes time and dedication.

Put Your Education To Work

I stated in the previous paragraph that this is your internet business. If you have no background in this environment it is absolutely necessary to follow the training as it is laid out. Even course members with previous experience have remarked that the training works best when followed in order. There is an abundance of additional training material available to help the novice get their business off the ground. This includes videos and a host of tutorials over and above the course training. The next step is to apply this training with active participation. The training is designed for you apply the training as you proceed.

Write Good Content

During the training you will learn how to write content for your website. Content is the advice, thoughts or training that makes your website an authority in its field. Good quality and frequent content is what the search engines look for so that your website ranks higher during Google or Bing searches.


The training teaches you how to do SEO or Search Engine Optimization. The tool provided is Jaaxy. This is a quality product that makes your search for the necessary keywords for your content easy. Jaaxy is provided to you at no extra cost.

Do not be afraid of writing content. You do not have to be a Pulitzer Prize writer to accomplish quality content. It is probably more important to be an expert in your field and write from the heart than worry about thesis quality content.

There are times when content is not that necessary. An example would be a product that needs very little explanation and literary sells itself. The benefit of being a premium member is that you get to view hundreds of websites to see what others are doing. Remember that your potential market is the 4 billion people on the internet.

Promote Your Business

Promoting your business can develop in a number of ways. Your website could depend on organic searches as you will be taught using SEO. It is possible you will choose to utilize social media to promote your business. There are also promotions that can done with YouTube videos or email lists. You will find what works for you as you proceed through the training.

In a nut shell we have an overview of what Wealthy Affiliate can prepare you to accomplish if you choose to make a decision today to secure your Financial Freedom and Empowerment. I stated earlier that this is not a get-rich-quick program, however if you are ready to commit yourself to an adventure please click the banner below.

Successful Home Business Ideas


Make Money Online

Wealthy Affiliate

In my last post we talked about Wealthy Affiliate and Affiliate Marketing. Affiliate marketing is where someone builds a website and with the market you have selected to promote go through the process to monetize it and then you are paid commissions. Some examples of this are A Cat Care website with Amazon products being promoted. Go to for a look. Another idea is Football Snack Helmets and another website promotes juicers.

After you select a market the next step is to promote it either through regular informational posts as I do with this website or with advertising through social media, forums and such. All the techniques you need are described in the training provided through Wealthy Affiliate.

Financial Empowerment begins with KNOWLEDGE. Knowledge is power like the horses in the picture. With this power you get to make decisions and have more control over your life. Wealthy Affiliate provides this you with this knowledge.

How To Pick A Niche

This process can be confusing or it can be easy. First of all it can be overthought. Ideas to start with are, what do you like to do or are deeply passionate about. This can be anything from cooking to pets to skills that you have. You are limited only by your imagination. Other options are to find a product and promote that. I have seen a website that sells solar lighting. Another website produced by an individual sells organic cookies and products. So you can see the ideas are endless.

When there are times when you can not decide on a NICHE market for you there are Affiliate Marketing Platforms such as ShareASale or Rakuten Marketing that can connect you to vast array of products and services where you should have no problem finding a market suited to you.

Another method of finding an affiliate for you to work with is to use Google and search for a company or product you like and add + affiliate to your search. The search could look like this “car parts + affiliate” or “gardening + affiliate”. Again the possibilities are endless.

There is a word of caution here. I was researching a company that sells home and industrial security equipment. I know this company and I trust their products and services, but their affiliate program only pays .01% commission. When you find an affiliate you like it is necessary for you to do your homework and know what the commissions are, how and when they pay. You must do your due diligence.

Work From Home

The ability to conduct this business can be accomplished from home. Here is what is necessary.

It is necessary to choose an interest.

You have to build a website and that is accomplished with Wealthy Affiliate.

With Wealthy Affiliate you will be instructed on attracting traffic to your website.

With all that work you will generate revenue.

These four short steps set you on the journey to becoming an Affiliate Marketer. The first step on this journey is to accept the training that is available to you at Wealthy Affiliate. You must realize that this is not a GET RICH QUICK program. For most people it is a new learning curve and it is necessary to follow the training and act on it.

Who Is This For

The course at Wealthy Affiliate is for you. It’s for the student that needs income. It’s for the wage earner who is tired of commuting and office life. It’s for the close to retirement person with a poor or no retirement fund. This work from home course and business is perfect for the home care giver. Post secondary education takes time and money. Most students leave with a big student loan with not necessarily having employment.

The course at Wealthy Affiliate can be done at your convenience and for the cost of a cup of coffee a day. The cost is Free for the first seven days. The next month is priced at $19.00 to go to the premium membership with each month after that costing $47.00. The best package is to sign up for a full year for $359.00. This works out to 98 cents a day for a full premium membership.

Remember you are building a business. A business that can produce as much income as a brick and mortar store. Take the training seriously and apply it.

Moving Towards Financial Empowerment

Catalina Island

Work From Home Business Ideas

Your journey towards financial empowerment and prosperity can sometimes be a long and winding road. We go through our lives going to school, learning and preparing ourselves for employment. We search for our spot in life and move towards our goal with hard work and dedication.

We spend decades doing the same thing because of the love what we do. Sometimes the thrill wears off and we put in our time until we can quit and spend time doing what we really want to do. This plan should begin as soon as we leave high school. This plan fails as there are many things that compete for our dollars. Some of these things are nothing but a drain. The point of this is not to criticize how someone lives their life. Life with your nose to the grindstone is no fun, however there must be a balance of life style and a plan to financial freedom.

Would it not be nice if we could do something that would provide supplemental income or even replace our current employment and conduct our own business at our own time and convenience.

As we research our work from home business ideas’ on the internet it will be noticed that there are endless possibilities. There are countless solicitations reaching for our time and money with promises of sustainable prosperity. Some of these are legitimate and some are not. You must do your due diligence and make intelligent decisions.

I am going to introduce you to the path I have taken. I have tried a few things and wasted both time and money to a certain extent. The educational aspect of the things I tried is never lost, but I did not make any money. I want to introduce you to Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is an all-inclusive training platform that teaches you how to work from home, online at your own convince and time schedule. If you are looking to start a business from home this is the road to take. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you the intricacies of affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you chose a niche market and build a website to promote your market and through the course you learn how to monetize it and produce an income. The course will guide you on how to pick a market. Perhaps you have your own product, business or service to promote. In my next post I will go into more detail on picking markets.

Office desk


Imagine if you are going to start a brick and mortar business. You need funding, a building, staff and inventory. Now imagine if your business looked like this where you can do just as much business and do it from the comfort of your home.

We must remember that Wealthy Affiliate is a course. Because it is a study course you must “study” and do the work. If you sign up and expect money to start flowing, well that will not happen. A person goes to post secondary education for years with the expectation of getting a job. That required a lot of work and money. The same philosophy applies here.

The difference here is that the cost is virtually minimal and you need access to a computer. The first seven days are Free. The next step is to buy the yearly premium membership for $359.00. For 98 cents a day you will have access to all the privileges the course provides. Please go to my “Wealthy Affiliate – The Key To Your Financial Freedom” page for more complete information.

When you enroll at Wealthy Affiliate you are not left by your self. There are numerous resources at your disposal. Everything from video training, class rooms and other tutorials. There is a 24/7 live chat and technical support. Currently there are three focus groups helping each other with course material.

There are some things at Wealthy Affiliate you do not have to do. You don’t have to recruit people, you don’t have to host meetings and you do not have to hard sell to your friends and family. What you must do is follow the course material in order and do all the lessons. Your market is the 4 billion people on the internet.


The cost and the course material are all laid out in the beginning. There are no up sells. This is a question to ask if you are researching other training platforms. Up sells are where you are invited to purchase high priced products in order to progress with their training. There will be some incidental costs mind you. These are unavoidable. While these are minimal it will be necessary to purchase website domains. There are times when you might want to up grade some products such as Jaaxy. Jaaxy is the in house SEO tool that you will be using for key word research. This is not necessary and would be at your discretion.

Work On Line From Home

Successful home business require dedication. Anyone can do this. It would be perfect for someone who is tired of the daily grind, commuting or maybe just needing a change. It would be a great supplement as you prepare to leave your job or something to do after you retire.

The time to start your journey to Financial Empowerment is today.
