Wealthy Affiliate Review | Legit or Scam?

Have you been considering starting an online business, but didn’t know where to start? Affiliate marketing is a great place to start. Web hosting fees are lower than ever, and there is now a large community of people that have been successful at affiliate marketing. I know this sounds like a cliché and that the devil is in the details. Fear not, Wealthy Affiliate is a legitimate hybrid of a social media network and an online educational platform. Honestly, WA is quite genius, the site provides up to date training, hosting, keyword analysis, along with a community for support. Support is one of the significant elements that many hatchling entrepreneurs lack.

When you sign up for free, you will have access to the first section of their content so that you can test it out before committing any money. Full access comes with the premium account; which costs $20 for the first month and $49 every month after. Having taken tons of Udemy courses and the Deadbeat Super Affiliate Program, I can say that WA is the best starting point available. I regret not starting out with WA; I discovered it three months into my journey. I would have saved a ton of time and headaches if I had just started here. Unlike other material that I have consumed WA’s content is entirely safe. When I say safe, I mean that it does not contain any black hat SEO techniques that can you banned by Google.

The training is very detailed, and you can put the videos at 2x speed. Everything from finding your niche, to SEO, and emails is covered. The two most import topics when it comes to SEO are links and keywords. WA provides members with Jaaxy a keyword tool; premium members get it for free. When it comes to keywords I would not rely on one tool. I would also recommend using Uber Suggest which is free. So far, I have not ran into any content that is relevant to links.

The social media aspect and the online community is awesome. You can easily reach out to mentors, partners, and people that you recruit. When you recruit someone, WA does give you a small commission if they sign up for premium. Now don’t get people to sign up without being willing to help them out it defeats the point of the program. WA lets you have your own blog directly on their site. You can fill said blog with tips and hacks that you have found to show people that you can walk the walk. You also don’t have to worry about running out of topics there is SEO, growth hacking, social media, video, Word Press, plugins, and much more.

On top of that with your premium account, you get web hosting; that’s right for me this is what sealed the deal. Yes, web hosting is very cheap and easy to set up nowadays but having an extra reliable site on AWS never hurts. If you want to go with your own hosting like me, you can use these sites to test out other niches. As long as your account is active that server space will always be there. WA even lets you make email accounts for sites hosted on WA. Premium members can have up to 25 domains to work and experiment with.

The last topic that I want to cover is the affiliate program. If you have never been an affiliate before you can try pitching WA. For being a digital product, the return is not that high, but if it fits your niche, you can pitch it. So far, I have been using WA for about a month, and I am very pleased. To recap here is what this site offers, website hosting, an online community, training, keyword tool, email hosting, and an affiliate program.

Blockchain’s Hype

Let’s say that you got a job as a cloud engineer, and proved your Python programming chops. Now you are on the DevOps team, living the good life. At the top of Maslow’s hierarchy, you wonder what’s next? Well, blockchain is here, and it is only a matter of time before it blows up. If you don’t believe me watch this TED talk. Blockchain will extend far beyond Crypto into produce, the post offices, and anything else that requires trust and logs.

This will probably be the next .com bubble, making the next wave of millionaires. What makes blockchain so attractive is absolute trust, imagine the level of relationship that companies will build with their clients; it will be like an extended family. In layman’s terms, all blockchain is performing x + y = z then replacing z for x every new block/transaction for IT folks it is a continuous hash, this is one of the necessary pieces that is needed to make the web safer, behind stronger encryption. So, if you wake up one day wondering what to do next strongly consider this amazing field, who knows you might be the next Satoshi Nakamoto?

Why Trade Forex News

You can make ends meet, but maybe you are not able to save the amount of money that you would like to be saving. It is a good thing that the Forex market is a $5.3 trillion a day market, guarantying that everyone can get a piece of the pie. I am going to go over the scalping of economic news releases and not regular trading, just because they are two different animals. Trading the news is just waking up early and clicking a few buttons at a certain time. Real trading takes discipline, one has to know themselves, and have a consistent system in place.

Very quickly all forex is, is buying or selling of a pair of currencies. For example, the USD/JPY, the base is the US dollar against the quote/ Japanese Yen. Then you will look at it as how much Yen is needed to make one dollar. The value of each currency will fluctuate when a major economic news is released like one country’s GDP. This is why trading the news is so easy the second that the news is released the chart will spike up or down. One must install a bot that will let them quickly place a buy and sell stop order fifteen seconds before the news goes live. Click, click, click the news goes live the chart spikes triggering one of the two orders, you can let the order close automatically to your set stop loss or close it manually. Then close the other order that did not get triggered too. This should be practiced on a demo account first.

What Are The Benefits Of Meditation?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to always be relaxed, and constantly observing yourself from a third-person perspective, while continually living in the moment and enjoying it? Well, let me begin with my first encounter with Buddhism which was in the book the Untethered Soul; the review for this book will be posted separately. All the book does is show you how to clear the voice in your head. I am not going to lie it is an awesome feeling, that took my performance to the next level. After reading this book I wanted to learn more but really didn’t do anything about it since I was satisfied with my results. Then I read Total Recall where Arnold Schwarzenegger described his use of transitive meditation; which is repeating the same thing to yourself over and over. It is popular with athletes that want to get them self’s in their mental comfort zone. I started using it to prepare for my IT certifications and ended up purchasing the Dalai Lama’s Book of Joy.

Around the same time, I read the 4 Hour Work Week and when I started following Tim, I realized that meditation is a powerful tool that anyone can use. It is currently used by some of the top performers in the world. The Dalai Lama shows one to go with the flow. Accept everything and viewing the world from different perspectives. There is a huge difference between intelligence and wisdom; the Book of Joy proves it. One of the most profound realizations for me was that no matter what you never accomplished anything on your own. If you had to drive down the street, someone had to build that road at some point. Then someone had to make the food that fed the workers building the road. This paradigm is also part of the basis of meditation, giving your brain a reboot by just focusing on your breathing while paying attention to all of your senses realizing that we are part of the now that is the vast universe.

Daily meditation even a minuscule amount has just as many professional benefits as personal ones. When I started getting into Forex trading the first thing that I did was read psychology books in hopes of implementing greater discipline. Since trading or investing without any self-control is just another form of gambling. I learned a lot from those psychology books, but clearing my head and getting rid of my emotions took my trading to a whole other level. At work too, some days I will run at the office and meditate for two minutes in the shower, before starting my shift. That way if there is some type of network outage and everyone else starts freaking out, I can take myself out of the moment. Ha-ha, “Keep Calm and Layer 1” T-shirts coming soon.
