In early 2018, I made one of the most powerful decisions of my entire business life. I decided to invest a few thousand dollars in an online business program. This was after being pitched for over an hour on a live webinar, and then they call, me on the cell phone, the call was from the person who generated me as their lead. I had so many negative doubts, I remember having a lot of questions about the program. It sounded like something I could do, it sounded easy.



However, there was that little voice in the back of my head that had been put there by a lot of years of conditioning from my blue-collar parents, the media, and society in general. I am sure you know the one: What if this doesn’t work? What if you invest the money, then find out it is harder than you thought? What makes you think you will be successful? Most businesses fail, and I’m sure the people that are getting results have a lot more money than you, more experience, and talent, you probably won’t be able to do this.



But then I thought about it a different way, I asked myself, at the end of my life, will I look back on this big decision to try to build a business online, and live an extraordinary life as a result of that business, with no regrets even if I do fail? or will I at least be glad that I tried, so that I don’t have to live with that what if, in my head? The answer was obvious, so I made that decision to buy right there at that very moment. With some enormous fear and excitement, I pulled out my credit card and purchased it.



I started promoting peoples products, doing affiliate marketing, making a little money here and there, however, I wasn’t making the money that I was promised I would make. When I try to get a hold of the program coach he became a ghost, there was no help to be found. I remember sitting at my dining room table with my head in my lap, with tears running down my cheeks, telling myself it was all lies, they ripped me off. I had question marks forever in my head, I hadn’t even made the money back that I invested. Then, of course, the little voice came in my head, you are so stupid, you were born in a blue-collar family, you are never going to be successful.



I did not even dare to tell, any of my friends and family what I was doing, and what was happening, sadly a lot of my friends and family did not believe in me because the ‘A’s and ‘B’s were typically employed by the ‘C’s and ‘D’s..the academics will not make it when it comes to running their own business successfully. I stood up from my dining room table, dry those tears off my face, in a very loud voice I said I will not quit, I will not give up, I will succeed no matter what, I CAN DO THIS.



Got on Facebook, begin talking to friends that were involved with affiliate marketing. All of them told me the same thing I needed to be educated in affiliate marketing, in order to succeed. I told my friend, I don’t have that kind of money to take a risk on some online affiliate marketing course. Then he said, I am your friend I want you to succeed, trust me on this. He then texts me and said, it will not cost you any money to join, the first month is free, the second month will cost you $19, the third month will cost you $49, with no increase after that. In that first month, you will be able to decide if you want to stay or not, and it’s not costing you anything, it is a win-win for you.

That night, that whole night I could not sleep, I tossed and turned thinking what should I do.

  6. Sadly, scams and legit, but NOT worth the price type of products are everywhere in the internet, which makes it very easy to find something etchical. You’ve done a great choice by joining Wealthy Affiliate.

    I’m curious, from how much time are you in the platform, and are you earning a full paycheck from affiliate marketing by now, and if yes – how much time did it took you?

    1. Good evening Victor, and thank you for visiting us here at weight lifting for a beautiful world. Yes my dear friend, the scammers are everywhere, they’re even out there now in this crisis, giving all kinds of promises and taking good people’s hard-earned money away. To only lead them down a dark alley with a dead end, it is so sad.

      I began here at wealthy affiliate April 2018, within a few months I was making little money here and there from people joining wealthy affiliate through me. About the middle of 2019 I begin to make a little bit more money however, it’s just started to kick in at the end of 2019 and now I make a living doing what I am doing.

      The products that I sell from our website is CBD oil, my daily Choice CBD oil, and of course convincing people to join wealthy affiliate. I have a 4-man team that helps me with research, and the testing of products at Boston College for our website. Now I’m going to tell you something, it’s going to sound a little strange however, it seems to be true.

      When you hit between 250 and 400 articles, is when the money begins to fall from the sky for you. This has been true for a lot of people who are making big time money here at wealthy affiliate. Thank you again for visiting us, and if it’s anything that I or my team can do for you please reach out to us. May prosperity and good health be always with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.
