How was your 2016?

Let’s start 2017 a bit different than how we ended 2016. For the most part I had an awesome year. One of the best parts of 2016 was getting back involved with Wealthy Affiliate.

  • Create a portfolio of your work which you can show to prospective employers or clients.
  • Blog as a hobby (you can blog about anything that interests you, such as cooking, traveling, or video games).
  • As a way to document a journey — a weight loss journey, a home renovation project, a journey to financial independence, and so on.
  • You can monetize your blog and create additional sources of income.

I went all the  around the world , tried many  lotions and potions,only to end up back here at WA(Wealthy Affiliate).  For so long I always thought and felt I had the right attitude about what all of this online stuff meant. I may have had the right attitude but I needed the rights tools to succeed online. Tools such as a support system, like-minded individuals and the ability to learn and grow at my own pace. You and I can win at anything if we are willing  to do the work. But we must first win from win from within(our thoughts and emotions). Results shows up in out actions. Good luck with what you do this day and every day. Keep up the GREAT work. We  all need YOU. Congrats and wish you the best in 2017. Please comment.
