    Such an interesting article to read and I loved the analogy. Boy did I cringe when the old builder was given the house that he had built so badly, how sad but it really hit home. We all need to learn and do to grow into our businesses and it sounds like Wealthy Affiliate provides a stable learning platform and plenty of support to build a successful business.

    A great review, thanks.

      Thanks Lily,

      I like the thought of growing into a business rather than imagining its going to be an immediate success. And the importance of good support in the process is an absolute necessity. I feel lucky to have a world of experience behind me in Wealthy Affiliate.

    Hey there,

    This is a really great article and touches on some key points. Having a good foundation is key in anything we do especially our business. Skipping or just skimming through any of the key foundations you mentioned will lead to failure and I persoanlly learnt that the hard way. I really love the story of the builder in your closing thoughts. Thank you for this great article.

    Regards

    Lawrence

      Thanks Lawrence,

      I know what you’re saying about failure. Working in the comments platform was one of the aspects that I skipped before and I don’t think it served me well. With this website I am attending to all the features that are required to have a great result. Consequently I am discovering how rewarding it is to give and receive comments .

      Cheers

    An insightful article and it helped me to understand the whole concept of it much better! I was reluctant in carrying out affiliate marketing but it is a good investment and worth your time as you learn so much more!

    Its great to learn about social media and build that foundation of trust and customers! It is amazing to know that this can be another source of income or even be your sole earnings which is a dream come true, but it certainly takes effort and time.

      Thanks Farah,

      It not necessarily about the destination when you set off on the affiliate marketing trail. It’s about the journey, the landmarks along the way and the goals you achieve in the doing.

    Having good and solid foundations are so important, and that comes to any business as well. I like the analogy that you use to compare Affiliate marketing and the building blocks for the foundation that is needed, with that of a concrete building. How sad for the old builder to be given back the keys to the house, but a huge lesson to be learnt from it. All the best.

      Thanks,

      the lesson of that builder comes to me often. It is good to keep integrity close to the front of your mind as you building your business and whatever that entails.

      Cheers

    I love your analogy in the first paragraph. It’s very contextual. A building’s foundation construction is something we see happening often and lessons can be learned from it. Proper training is vital for any undertaking, online businesses notwithstanding. An additional benefit of the WA training is the practical approach. One has to check off something as done to proceed on. I highly recommend the training for any would-be entrepreneur.

      Thanks Steve. I too, have found the training to be indispensable. Not only do you learn you immediately have to put it into practice. It provides some momentum to the process.
