How I Got Here

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope that you are enjoying being here at this site.

I just wanted to share the story of how came to be.

One Night…

One night as I was scrolling along social media, I happened to come across a random posting about an online travel business. I really am not exactly sure what happened next, but as I was looking more into the online travel business, I found a link posted by Eddy Solomon from Wealthy Affiliate and I clicked on it. I had no idea what Wealthy Affiliate was.

It Found Me

As I read more about Wealthy Affiliate or WA as it’s known to members, I learned that it was about starting an online business by creating your own website and using affiliate marketing to make money. I thought to myself,

“Wow this is what I’ve been trying to do with the website that I currently have!”

It found me!

How It Works

The best way to explain affiliate marketing and how it works is to show this self-explanatory diagram:

When I saw this image, I immediately knew that this is what I wanted to do! It was what I was trying to do with my very first website but I couldn’t figure out how to do it on my own.

Signed Up

So, I signed up with WA! There is a free membership with an option to become a Premium Member whenever you are ready. Premium Membership is $49 per month. There is also an option to pay yearly with some savings. Then, once a year there is an even more discounted rate for Black Friday.

3 Great Things About WA

Great Community

One of the many great things about WA is that it such a great community. All the members are so encouraging and supportive. There is an energy about WA that inspires me to want to continue building my site because of how everyone is so active in helping each other out.


WA trainings are great and easy enough to follow. I actually had my site up and running in just a few short weeks. The trainings take you step by step and you can go at your own pace. Plus, there are always continuous trainings happening within the community and its members.

Website Engagement Platform

I have learned to enjoy the Website Engagement Platform at WA. This is also known as “site comments”. It is a “give and take comment thread”. It is where you can leave comments on other people’s website and or postings and in turn they can leave comments for you.

Here I Am

So, here I am.

And here is my website . What you see here is what I have learned from Wealthy Affiliate. I am having so much fun with it and I encourage everyone to give it a try.

You can do it, too!

I will be happy to share more with you….

As you mentioned, there are always members willing to help each other out and excellent training. Though I’m still paying month by month I consider it one of the best investments I’m making.
