1. Internet Home Business For Beginners

Darling Thinette



After being a member of the best training program for  for 2 years, I am happy to share my experience with you.  This program take care of beginners and lead you by the hand. Let me first tell you about my walk in the woods before WA, my dear.

Part of my History

In my search over the last 12 years, I came across many options on how to make money online, but none worked for me. Some were scams lying about their success, and the others too advanced for my knowledge.

My past experience was not very successful. I joined the program of a well-known Guru, but the training manual I bought was mostly written in a coded language. Had to go into the back-office, the coded programming area, and it scared the daylight out of me.

I couldn’t understand most of the tasks and with no support, it is needless to say, I did not get anywhere. But then I was introduced to Wealthy Affiliate!

During November 2018 someone sends me an invitation to look at an option to earning money. It is a Training Company, Wealthy Affiliate. It immediately caught my eye, because in the past training was a problem. Ranking as the best on the Internet, with comprehensive lessons and videos, made the choice easy.

My first thought, this can be my opportunity. Joining was free, with no obligation.

Curiosity got the better of me, I filled my email and pushed the button. Once on the inside, I was surprised to see WEALTHY AFFILIATE [WA] is offering exactly what I was looking for all these years? At last I found the solution to prove to myself, I can do this.

Finally, here is my opportunity to get Financial and Personal Freedom. With WA it is possible. Free membership for life, with an option to upgrade when I am ready and I can leave anytime I want. It sounded very good, therefore, I did not hesitate and join.

I can do it!

Once on the inside, I immediately became part of a community of 1.5 million WEALTHY AFFILIATE members, many very successful. All very helpful and ready to give encouragement, advice and support 24/7 for 365 days when needed.

I was welcomed by many in the community and the owners’ Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim from Canada gave me a warm welcome too. I felt at home, and that is how it started. No regrets just gratitude for this wonderful opportunity.

People are looking for ways and means to create an income from the Internet and be able to work from home. Most of all, to earn money and eventually replace their salary.

Creating an website was made so easy, the Technical team do half the work, and with the push of a button the site was up and running.

Affiliate Marketing is one way. In this letter, I will explain what it is and above all, how to start your business for free, my dear.

How do I make Money with Affiliate Marketing

  • To be an Affiliate means you have agreed to promote products of a company on your site and will get compensated with  a commission when it sells. There are many companies that offer affiliate programs, and are too glad when you promote and sell there products.

  • As a website owner, you write blogs or articles on the topic you have chosen for your site. To make money, find relevant products on the market place and advertise it to your visitors. Products that will enhance their life or solving their problem.

  • Huge-nest-in-top-of-the-tree-storkFind a save branch to sit on in this tree. Be more specific. Narrow your topic down, remember people search their specific need. They already know what they want, that makes keyword search so important.

  • Find a smaller more specific niche.

  • Many companies have affiliate programs.  Join an affiliate program of a company, and get approved. Now you can choose a product, promote it on your website and offer a serves to your visitors.

  • Once you have joined the affiliate program of the company, they will then supply you with an advertisement banner. It will have an encoded link to your name and bank account.

  • When people visiting your website decided to buy the product and click the advert, the link takes them to the site of the company, where the company deals with the order.

The visitor places an order at the company and pays them, the sale then gets registered to your name and the commission you earned, gets paid into your bank account, at no cost to the buyer. The company share their profit with you by paying you a percentage, thus making you an Affiliate Marketer.

We are taught how to add pictures, change menus, add widgets, changing your header making it more pretty.  Furthermore add the social media icons like Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter for interaction on your site, and get it SEO ready.

What is SEO

SEO NetworkEveryone talks about SEO (Search Engine Optimization ). It is the name given to the activity when the robots select the site with the best information to appear in the first spot on Google when you search.

It is called ranking on the Search Engines. It is a big thing and everybody’s goal to fill that first spot. Keywords or search words in the name of your posts and in the contents on your website determine whether you get there or not.

Here is JAAXY a keyword search application.

It is live, try it …

Keywords help Google or other search engines to find your site. That makes Keywords so important. Resulting in more traffic which means more money, and this is the aim, my dear.

Your Money

Wealthy Affiliate does not take any money of the commission earned from sales on your site. The company gets its money from the membership fees and that is it, it is a training company.

All the money earned through your affiliate links on your website goes directly into your bank account. Paid by the company as a form of commission by promoting their product.

Your money growing.This, in a nutshell, my dear Thinette is an introduction to one of the safest ways to make money on the Internet.

The more you put in, the more you get out. The harder and smarter you work the more you will earn.

Learn from the Best!

Hardworking people are successful people and build their own wealth.

Mindset and Attitude

Dan Lok a very successful entrepreneur, has the last say. It is about attitude and mindset, before you start.

I would like to share this with you to have a clear vision and mission for your new exciting journey to be a success.

Dan says:

7 Things Poor People Do That Rich People Don’t Do

1]   Poor people watch TV, to escape their situation, therefore, living in a dream world.

Rich people Read Books, to increase their knowledge to achieve.

2]  Poor people get paid based on Time, and as a result, falls into a comfort zone.

Rich people get paid based on Results, making him, most certainly, more responsible. An athlete, for example, doesn’t matter how many hours he practices, it is the results that matter.

 3]  Poor people blame others for their misfortune, if it is not the politics it is the company or family.  Lame people Blame people.

Rich people take Responsibility for their failures, and at the same time responsibility brings Growth and Power.

4]  Poor people focus on Saving. A penny saved is still a penny says Dan, therefore, you don’t have a Savings problem you have an Income problem.

Rich people focus on Investing, furthermore, let money work for you. Earn more to Invest not save.

5]  Poor people think they Know it All. Always very Opinionated. Have an Opinion on everything to get attention and put the focus elsewhere.

Rich people continuously Learn. Ask Questions and Listen, therefore, Reading is continuous learning.

6]  Poor people think money is the root of all Evil, hence making people greedy.

Rich people believe Poverty is the root of all Evil. Crime, drugs, family problems, etc.,

Money is a Neutral entity, hence it is a Tool. How you use it makes it effective or not.

7]  Poor people have a Lottery Mentality. In their mind, it is the only way to get rich, on the other hand, buying a ticket is buying a Fantasy, not a Reality.

Rich people have an Action Mentality. It is All up to Me to make it happen. My Actions will dictate the outcome. Rich people, in contrast, rely only on “Myself.”

Hi Stella,

After reading your article it has just reassured me I need to do more for my family, being raised with the mentality of working hours from 08.00 – 17.00 hrs truly has lost its importance.

In our part of the world there are simply no jobs; you could be holding the highest qualification and still not get a job. And what’s more the money is ridiculously low.

It’s a devastating really and I wish for everyone to hop onto Affiliate Marketing and find a way out of whatever hole they are in. Good article Stella, I hope it serves as a reminder the possibilities it can bring.

Very true Priska, the world has become a strange place … nothing we knew, is hardly the same.
It is good to often stop and get back to look back at the essence of what life means. Renew and refresh and start over again with new enthusiasm.
Thank you for your comment it is highly appreciated.

Hi Stella,

Great description of differencies between poor and rich pepople’s mindset. Very informative.

I’m a premium member of WA and form my perspective the biggest value is the amazing community which supports you in every cases and constantly motivates you to developing your business.


27/05/2019 at 17:13 | Edit

Yes Kamil I agree, the community of support is the X-FACTOR that WA has over other programs.
Have tried different programs in the past but none was successful until I joined WA.
The support has a motivating factor too.
Best wishes for great success!

Hello Stella,

The poor person’s mindset was a really good eye-opener. When I tried to do an online business previously, I didn’t succeed because of that mindset. I’m glad WA has helped get this far and I hope you will continue to do well too


27/05/2019 at 17:08 | Edit

A right mindset makes all the difference.
We have to make changes to be successful. not always easy but necessary.
Being raised by the concept that being lesser is the acceptable decent norm, makes us all losers it the race to success.
Thank you for your comment and opinion, it is valuable.

Hi Stella,

I love the list of 7 things poor people do that rich people don’t. Each item is true!

To be truly successful, we must escape that poor mentality. It can be extremely difficult when that’s all you were raised around your whole life, but I’d like to add to that list the eighth item.

I’d say another “poor” mindset is thinking to work for others instead of for yourself. Many are happy being employees forever. I have no issue with being an employee just to have another stream of income, but I do take issue with being an employee as your only source of income. Sadly, this is very common.

I hope more people wake up to communities like WA!


27/05/2019 at 16:53 | Edit

Isn’t it? … and it is an eye-opener, Andre.
It just shows how much we are brainwashed to follow blindly certain rules of society.

Luckily time and technology have changed it all and everybody is waking up to create a better life.
Very true we are all raised to be fantastic workers, the best you can get to fill their pockets and we stay poor.

It is up to us all to spread the wonderful word of WA.
Thank you for very valuable input, I appreciate your comment!

This is very good information. It is funny how sometimes one struggles with finding material for their content. You have done an excellent job with this piece. It was two-fold for me, fun and serious business. You made it real by the added media – video and photos. Continue with your awesome work.

Thank you, Althea, for your comment, it is motivating.
Glad you enjoyed it as well as getting value from it.
