Hello hello to readers of NigelChua.com!
I got up this morning to receive a Facebook message by one of my readers:
Hi Nigel, chance upon your website nigelchua.com and wish to seek your views on wealthy affiliate. why have you not update since sept 2016 on your income? Is it not working out for you?
First of all, I'd like to apologize to you. I'm sorry, in the month of October-November 2016, I had been caught up with launching 2 clinics for my physiotherapy business so that really took time in the setting up and managing the influx of new therapists and other operational issues. I hope it doesn't come across as excuses, but I am definitely working on this site still.
Secondly, to the reader who messaged me, thank you so much! Your message kicked me in the shins and reminded me that I have readers that I am accountable to, and that this blog matters. Thank you.
And thirdly, to answer on Wealthy Affiliate, my verdict is still the same: I am still a user of WA, and in fact, I just renewed my subscription under the 2016 Black Friday offer which effectively decreased the annual price of $359 per year to $299 per year (oh yeaah!!!!). I am ignoring the monthly version which is $49 per month entirely because (1) $49 x 12 months = $588 which is a lot more per year and (2) more importantly, I go yearly because online success doesn't happen in a few months.
It can take anything from 12 to 24 months+ to make decent money.
I am a proud member of Wealthy Affiliate and I recommend my readers who want to learn how to make money online, join a very active forum, work alongside with me (I will be in the same community as well) and build your own online businesses to join.
If money is a concern or if you're cautious, please join the free version first. The free version is for life and is more basic, but you can learn the basic online business and even get 2 websites for free. Only when you're ready, upgrade and go for the paid one.
For me, because (1) I have a budget to experiment and learn and build online business (I set aside about $500 per year for such events) and (2) more importantly, I've been trying at this for years. Since 2005. I've failed again and again, and had scammy gurus cheating me thousands of dollars…with no results.
So, $299 is not only a bargain, but I've been making some money online with what I've learned from Wealthy Affiliate, so it's a no brainer for me still (note: I'd still want to aim for $1000 per month)
I'll be working on updating my passive income report as soon as I can, sorry once again for that.
What about yourself?
If you're a student, stay at home mum, or an executive, you must find a side hustle that you can build on the side.
It's not a luxury, it is a necessity.
It will give you options and flexibility and choices, and can be very low cost to learn and test and grow. Heck, the option that I am putting to you has even a free version (sign up for the free membership that don’t even need a credit card too) and learn all you can about online business, experiment with the 2 free websites too.
I am making money online, and I can foresee my financial future getting better and better.
I believe in building a passive income internet business that will work for me day in, day out; serving readers and customers profitably and delivering value 24/7, and only one program taught and help me create a money making website, and it's the only program I feel very comfortable and confident in sharing: Wealthy Affiliate.
I’m tired of being cheated and scammed by gurus and programs out there that promises I will make money online by shelling out hundreds if not hundreds of dollars for their magic solution – note to self: there is no magic bullet solution. I am building my online businesses from scratch, finally making money online and I’ll recommend you learn it too. It’s a life skill and it’d future-proof your life and future income.
