Why Am I So Dumb-Wealthy Affiliate

The Proven 4-Step Affiliate Marketing Blueprint

This is the exact same formula I use to create a passive income and build a lucrative business online with NO prior experience in marketing or the internet...

Have you ever been in a situation where you want something so much, you can see it in your head, but you don’t know how to make it happen. You work and work to make that something happen until you start thinking, “why am I so dumb?” I felt this way four years ago when I began an MLM business.  I had heard that if I were to blog, I could reach more people. I knew absolutely nothing about blogging or setting up a website.street sign SEO, keywords, why am I so dumb

I didn’t even know that everything I saw on the internet had a back door that led to a dashboard. I never knew how all of these things got on the internet. I did, however, understand a bit about how to navigate the web, but I didn’t know any terminology.


Now to many of the younger people, this sounds a bit unreal, so about now you are thinking “why am I so dumb,” but I assure I wasn’t and that is the truth. I was computer ignorant and didn’t know much. So, when I decided to set up a website, I went to YouTube and searched for how to do this. I found a tutorial on how to design a site and began to set up my website. It took me three months of tiny steps to set it up.

I used Bluehost to rent a space and WordPress to manage my content. I had no idea what these two companies did, but that is what the YouTube video suggested. So, my journey began. I opened numerous windows on my computer and clicked back and forth every few seconds to follow the video.

I was a nurse for 40 years until I found Wealthy Affiliate two years ago. I had almost no internet or marketing experience but, within a few months, I had a website built that was driving traffic & sales.

Over the past two years, I have set up and am running three online businesses.

It really works.  Take a look at the training and methods that taught me how to resign and work from home. It will be one of the best investments you will ever make.


Why Am I So Dumb?

I could have chosen a theme to set my site, but I didn’t even understand what a theme template was. Oh boy, you say that is crazy. Yes, it was. Now you know why I thought “why am I so dumb” because a couple of years later  I realized I  didn’t have to code myyellow emoji why am i so dumb face whole website there were templates set up already coded. WOW!!! But I did learn a tremendous about of information. I knew just enough to know absolutely nothing because the more I learned, the more I needed to know.

Now that you have a great idea of how little I knew about the internet and blogging, let’s fast forward three years. I was not successful at multi-level marketing, but I did find my ability to write poetry again. So, for three years after I sat up my site, I wrote poems and blogged about them. I had nearly 100 posts on my website, Inspiration For Life. But once again, I knew nothing about SEO (search engine optimization). I heard of it and understood that no one would see my work if I didn’t do this type of thing.

Money Grabbers

So, I hired a couple of companies who took my money and did nothing for me. But one day I was looking at reviews for a company online (I review everything online) and accidentally ran across a site called Wealthy Affiliate. What caught my eye was “no credit card required.” I stepped inside and took a look around. I looked for five days and went through the first ten lessons.

Wealthy Affiliate Gold Mine

OH MY GOSH, I hit a gold mine. These first ten lessons taught me what I had been searching for for the past three years. I did pay money and become a member after five days. I had wasted so much money in the past three years on companies that did not deliver on their promises. The membership fee for Wealthy Affiliate is minuscule compared passion ideato what I had lost already.

I quickly learned about templates and built a website on the WA platform in a matter of minutes using a WordPress theme. WordPress creates the layout for you, and all you do is follow the step-by-step training here at Wealthy Affiliate. Your question to me maybe what do I do with this website. Here is the incredible part. You make money with affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing

You set up the website around something you love or a passion. If you love dogs, you blog about dogs. If you like nutritional supplements, you set up a site to promote supplements. These are ideas. There are billions of niches or passions you can research and find a plan. Wealthy Affiliate even trains you on how to find a niche.affiliate programs

Once you choose your niche, you become affiliated with a company or companies that have the items you want to promote like Amazon or eBay or any one of millions of affiliate programs. You put their product on your site with a unique link they give you and when someone purchases the item you get paid. Wealthy Affiliate even trains you step-by-step on how to find affiliates and place links.

Just The beginning

These are the first ten steps of training which are free. In the free plan, you can build two websites. You can remain with the free plan for up to 6 months if you choose, but I know you will want to become a paid member of WA. Why? Because you can then set up 10 sites. I don’t recommend doing this until you have finished all of the training and you are good at writing a post. Oh, and did I mention that Wealthy Affiliate also trains you on how to write a proper story that will get a ranking on Google so everyone will see it?

What WA Has To Offer

I am including a link to a comparison chart to give you a better understanding go the free plan versus the premium plan.


There is no way I can tell you everything you need to know in this one post, but you can check out the method that taught me. That thought I had about “why am I so dumb” really wasn’t right was it. I just wasn’t in the right place. Wealthy Affiliate has taught me everything I need to know.

What Does Wealthy Affiliate Require

Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t need you to do anything. But you will learn to set up an online business that is all yours. You are developing a legacy and an income for yourself. At Wealthy Affiliate, you can do as much or as little as you like with your business. But the more you learn and put into effect, the more you will see results. WA is not a get rich quick site. If you need money right now, this is not the answer. But if you are a person with integrity, grit, determination, and dedication, you will do well with your online business.

Supportsuccess people

  1. I’m also interested in the fact that this bunch have a free membership and there is no credit card required to get my foot in through the door – makes a nice change to the money I’ve wasted so far! 

    You mention that you were a complete newbie when you signed up – much like myself now, how did you first find the education? Would you say it is confusing for first-timers?

    • Chris, The training is one of the things that hooked me. I love the way the owner Kyle has set it up as a step-by-step guide to get started. He has organized all of the lessons in perfect order . I found that when I did the lessons exactly as he planned the next step I needed was right there. 

      It is an incredible platform. I would love for you to check it out and let me know what you think. 


  2. Great post. I really enjoyed because it was sounded so similar to my story. I joined WA a few months ago and I really love it. I tried the FREE version for a few days then I paid 2 months (dumb me!) and then paid for yearly membership. I would recommend your reader to PAY attention to this post and believe it because it is true. As you stated, WA is not a “become rich in two days” but it can definitely lead to a successful online business. GREAT ARTICLE!

    • Yes Victor, I also love WA. Our stories do sound alike in many ways. When I started I did the monthly payment for a few months before I realized how dumb that was. So I also upgraded to yearly to save money. 

      I love the purpose I get from hard work and seeing the fruits of my labors. It does take some work but it is well worth every second. 

      Thank you Victor

  4. Hello Laura. I decided to check your website and I ran into this article. This article is something special, because I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate. I got hooked instantly. I think it was also like it was for you. It was free to try and no credit card required.

    After just being 4 days there I decided that I need to become a full member and I did. Wealthy Affiliate offered me so much for so little that I can not be any happier about my decision to become a member. I am also glad you are satisfied with them and this amazing website is a proof that effort is always good.

    Add me on my friendlist on WealthyAffiliate if we are already not connected.

    Thank you.


    • Yes it sounds like our experiences are very similar. I love WA so much I believe everyone should join. There is no other platform to build a business like this one. 

      I will add you to my friends list and I will be proud to be a part of your network. 

      Thank You
