Why Am I So Stupid?

Why Am I So Stupid?

Anyone else out there ask themselves “Why am I so Stupid?“, I have done this for years. In reality, I really am NOT stupid but feel that I am due to never reaching my dreams.

I can guarantee you are not stupid either, the only reason you feel this way is lack of confidence in yourself and what you can actually accomplish when you put your mind into doing the right thing.

Dreams are part of life, whether yours is to be rich, own a huge fancy house, a fancy car, or just your own business that you do not have to slave over for year after year.

Early retirement could be one of those dreams of being able to spend time with your family and friends instead of working endless hours until you are too old to enjoy life.

Unfortunately, I ended up working until I was able to retire, but that did not mean I could not still follow my dream. I always wanted to work online owning my own business and today I own more than one!

Want to hear the best part of owning your own online business?

Carry on reading the rest of my article and you will see that it is not just a possibility of earning a substantial living working online but a highly probable one if you know what to do!


How I Followed My Dream

Losing my husband was a turning point for me, I was lost with too much time on my hands. Knowing that I always wanted to work online I went to work doing research.

In the past, I had “Shiny Object Syndrome” you know buying the next best thing to come out promising that you are going to get-rich-quick but hurry only two spots left.

Back then it was not a financial burden for me to spend $37, $47, or even $197 to buy these systems or should I say scams which would describe them even better.

Now on a fixed income, I had to be careful and not fall for the hyped-up crap that these scammers were peddling. Heck, today you can even find them advertising on television.

The one thing that always bugged me was they said “FREE” but once you watched their video you ended up on the page where you had to enter your credit card information.

During my research, I landed on a website that said “Create Your FREE Account NOW” with “No Credit Card Required“. Being more than just a little bit skeptical, it was 2 am, I decided to give it a shot.

Create Your Free Account Now

I had heard of affiliate marketing in the past not sure if you have, but that was what this website was offering. You could get a FREE Account with training provided, not a bad deal, right?


Create Your Free Account Now

Figuring I had nothing to lose I could close out of the credit card screen, I went ahead and clicked on the banner. Imagine my surprise when it did not take me to the credit card screen, but instead to a screen to Create My Account!

Wow, nothing like this had ever happened to me before, so I filled in the box with my name, selected a user name, and entered my email information. Nothing else was required.

Once I hit the enter button I was taken to a website called “Wealthy Affiliate” which is a training platform to teach how one can start in affiliate marketing.

Finally, I had found something that was making sense, hold on because there is more to this that I need to explain to you. Not only do you get “some” training for FREE but much more with this platform.

Digging into the training was the first thing I did after I filled out my profile with a little information about why I signed up and I selected a stock photo from their gallery.

My Profile WA

Other members came to my profile welcoming me into the community and offering their assistance should I get stuck on anything or if I had any questions. This was reassuring to know that these people really wanted to help me.

Getting the “FREE Starter Membership” with Wealthy Affiliate changed my life. Their trial period of seven days gives you the option of taking the Premium Membership at a discount for the first month of only $19.00, how could I resist this?
