Wealthy Affiliate University Teaching

I have always prided myself on having an open mind. Just lately I'm discovering that it is not so open as I thought it was. How could this be? Maybe because for so long I was my own boss and my own man? The reality is that, that was around twelve years ago. But old habits die hard? Within the past few days I have had a wake up call and a really big one which has brought me down to Earth with a big bang. Here is what happened and why.

Now for me as an ex farmer the most important things are trust, honesty, a big dose of common sense and more importantly. Do the job the right the first time and following that everything falls into place. But, do it wrong the first time and all your hassles are only just beginning. Honestly. The thing is, I had forgotten that first, I had to be taught how to farm. Secondly, that I now had to put into practise what I had been taught. Thirdly, that despite all I had been taught, I never got the job right first time. It was in fact, a system of trial and error. But eventually one learns, and then one forgets that it is all a learning process. So don't pour scorn on new people trying things out for the first time and expect them to get it right first time. Indeed they should as I know it's the best way.

However, in the end life isn't quite like that.

Which brings us back to teaching. Now over the past few years (forty or more), I have led an extraordinary life most of this due to losing everything I once thought could never happen. Now that most of this was due to events outside my control is neither here nor there, but is another story for another time. What this means is, for me anyway, is listen to people who are trying to teach you something. Especially listen to people who have been through what they are trying to teach you about and have all the necessary experience.

Now, where was I? Ah, yes, teaching. Anyway, one moves to another country and begins a new way of life. And then one day, as we all now live in troubled times and age is catching up with you. You lose your job, and there are no jobs available. Now where does this leave you? It leaves you with your own intelligence and trying to find something else until such time as one finds another job. I decided to look into all this internet marketing 'palaver', and see if I could make a go of this? It also means trying to plan ahead, for the next time you might lose your work and more importantly for your retirement. So that if and when this happens at least then you have another form of income to tide you over?

By some stroke of good fortune this brought me to, Wealthy Affiliate University and I was here for around fifteen months. Bewildered, bemused, confused, and completely lost. Eventually, I decided to go into Article Marketing, sometimes known as bum marketing. Being a former Golf captain which entails much public speaking, I thought I had found my forte and so left. More importantly, despite being taught that this was a bum marketing strategy and not where the real money was. I was going to be different and I was going to pen such compelling articles that I would. So I did, many rave reviews and a plethora of 'gongs', but very few sales. Where was I going wrong?

Anyway, then one day on Facebook, I saw Wealthy Affiliate University 'crash course'being advertised for thirty days and only for $1. I thought I'd better try it and find out where I was going wrong. So I came back. However over the ensuing years, I had become sceptical and always having a tendency to cynicism is basically how I approached the course. Guess what? I was wrong and I wasn't paying attention to my teachers. Then on day 19 something occurred which infuriated me. When eventually another friend had calmed me down, I went in for another look. It was embarrassing, all this time I had been so wrong but was so enthralled with my own ego I never did see it. Well you live and you learn. The moral of this story being that the internet is changing so fast on a daily basis and if you have signed on to course where people are trying to teach you something and who have much more experience than you do. Then listen to them and don't make the same mistakes I did. A great marketing tip here is. If Kyle and Carson are trying to teach you about 'keyword research', then do your 'keyword research'.
