Passions CAN Become Income

Maybe you are retired, maybe you’ve been laid off or health issues force you to quit your regular job.  You do not have to stop contributing or stop earning.  You can now decide to turn to the interests in your life, those things that capture your imagination, your dreams, your passions. Things you have spent time doing and learning about.  Maybe even some things you can be considered an expert or very knowledgeable about.

Now is the time to turn those passions and interests into income.

You May Ask – How?

You can turn that special interest you have into an online marketing venture by creating your own monetized blog site about your interest – your passion.  I’m doing that myself and I know several men and women who have done just that.


“Steve is one of those I know.  He graduated in 2007 and had one job interview and hated the idea of working for someone else.  During the past 10 years, Steve has created a very lucrative income from his online blog sites.  He makes a terrific 6-digit annual salary and plans to retire at age 40.  Steve will tell you himself that joining The Wealthy Affiliate Training Platform was the best decision (almost) of his life.  Three years ago, Steve convinced me to do the same and I haven’t regretted it either.



Loes is another success here at WA.  I met Loes within the WA community and interact with her weekly.  She is ranked 19 in the list of helpers here at WA and is a WA Ambassador, spending time helping others in this community.  She has created well over 100 training posts here in WA.  She lives in the Netherlands and has been my friend since I joined. She states:

“During my study here, I have developed 7 websites, which are attracting thousands of visitors, because I have learned how to fill in the right keywords for the search engines. ….I am creating an additional income here, and am very confident, seen the results, that my income will be doubled, even tripled 🙂 when the time comes I will retire…..”

 Loes is well on her way to meeting her retirement goals.



And there is Liz, who quit her day job after one year.

“Well, just got my notification from WA that I have been here for one year. What a year it has been!

The last 5 months have been profitable for me to the point I actually quit my part-time job and am now pretty much full time online apart from a few private students which I actually want to hang onto because they get me away from my computer which I think is healthy. This has been really fantastic and I just love being my own boss.”



And Colton, who also quit his day job and posted this in April of 2015:

“So I’ve been with WA since Nov. 2014.

Things have been going GREAT and I’ve actually been able to quit my day job thanks to everything that WA has shown me in the past 5 months! 😀 It’s going to be pretty crazy working full-time on websites at home but I’m more than ready for that experience )”

And there are many, more who have achieved success in their online endeavors through their Wealthy Affiliate Membership and training.  Some make money referring others to the Program, many make money through developing their “niche” websites and affiliate marketing.  Others have learned to create websites and work with businesses in Search Engine Optimization of sites.  Several have become “coaches” and “mentors” to men and women wanting to know what we have learned here at Wealthy Affiliates.

The Wealthy Affiliate Training Platform is the best online Affiliate Marketing training and hosting platform I’ve ever found.  You can see what its all about when you sign up for the FREE 7 day trial week.  Why not give it a try and maybe this will be a New Year’s effort that will help you quit your day job and reach many of your financial goals. You will find this to be a great opportunity for you in 2018.  The value is there and so much more.  But you can check it out for 7 days totally free.  I made the decision to check it out in August of 2014 and on my 3rd trial day, I made the decision to go Premium and I’ve never regretted that decision. I now have 7 affiliate blog sites and build websites for clients as well.

    Thank you for mentioning me in your post! I am very honored, Shirley. And for sure, I am so glad I have found Wealthy Affiliate. The training has taught me everything I needed to know about affiliate marketing. I am a non-stop learner at the WA premises, for almost 4 years now, and the last 3 years I am, because of my activity on the forum, an ambassador for WA, and when anyone decides to join, please look me up at the platform, and I will help you too!
