In this day and age, technology has helped in providing information in easier ways. It has certainly come with it’s advantages and disadvantages as well. However I would like to begin with the good things technology has done to improve the lives of people.
Over the last 10 years, many things have changed, some for the better and some worse. At this moment in time in the information age, a lot of people can take advantage of the fortunes that can be found online, that does not mean that it will be easy, you just have to learn to be consistent and know what it is that you want for your life.
A few months ago, I came across a platform known as Wealthy Affiliate(WA). I was clueless as to what it was all about, however I joined it for free to see what it was all about. My curiosity piqued because I realised that the site was to teach me how to do Affiliate Marketing, something that I heard about but never quite had an idea how to go about it.
From the first day that I started working on it, I enjoyed the lessons so much I decided to join it as a premium member just because I realised that there would be an advantage to myself and my family.
As soon as I joined them, I realised I had a lot of work to do, to get somewhere as in life there are no shortcuts, everything takes time. If something sounds too good to be true there’s always a catch and at this time in our lives, we have to be careful what we go for.

The reasons I joined
Well, like most people, you want to be financially stable and in order to get there, passive income is useful in assisting you reach those goals. The other reason was I have a family and want to be there for them, the hustle of commuting to and from work was something I thought was too cumbersome for me. I have been working on my site for the past 6 months, however when I first began, I had another job so I never quite made time for it as much as I should have.
When my contract from work ran out, during the quiet periods, I did spend time working on my passion which has always been afro hair and also working on getting myself financial independence. You don’t know when you will have to look after someone in your family and you don’t want to wait until it’s too late. Life is hard enough as it is and anyone can work on their life to have a vision on where they want to be. Five years from now I know what my personal goals should be and no organisation should dictate that for me.
You see a few years back, I looked at my life and I have been lucky to have some great jobs, but it has always been a challenge trying to climb up the corporate ladder. For me I always asked myself, is it worth it? Do I have to go through all this politics just so that I can get the money? Should I step over someone’s head and be ruthless about where I want to go? Should I wait to be promoted or can I promote myself? Well when WA came up I was like, why should I wait when I can take advantage of this wonderful community where I can utilise my skills online and provide information to others on how they too can improve their lives. This is when my journey began and I have not looked back since.
Now although technology is great, privacy is becoming a matter of concern all around the world and you have to be extremely careful with who you provide your details to. The great thing about WA, you can have all your information kept secure. Additionally, technology especially the social aspect of it is quite addictive. People have become glued to technology that the value of face to face is getting a little lost with people constantly looking at their phones and not socialising. The art of speaking to those around us is starting to get lost in the sea of technology and the human presence is being taken for granted. Sometimes I wonder if an individual from the past would come back to this world, how would their reaction be because I think it would tell alot about where we are headed as human-beings.
We can record events that have happened but do we just record and do nothing about it or do we step in to help victims? Therefore although technology has been amazing for us, it has also brought another set of problems we all need to work on.
What can we do
Take the time to value those around you, your parents, kids, friends and anyone. Step away from technology sometimes even a week off from the digital to the human expereince. Learn to appreciate those around you. The main reason I wanted to provide this information was to assist anyone out there that wanted to create something online and was not sure how to go about it. This is a simple gift that can change your life and create some opportunities that you may not have considered. In a world full of hopelessness I am trying to reach out and help an individual that wants more out of life. If that is you, there is nothing to lose and you won’t waste your time with this.
I am still a work in progress, however that will not stop me from working diligently until I fulfill my purpose and goal on this earth. If this is the type of opportunity you want, feel free to write and let me know where you are, what do you want to accomplish in the next year. 2019 is about to end and 2020 is just around the corner, do you still want to be in the same place as 2019 or do you want to grow? This is a challenge not just for me but everyone that want to improve their life.
