Welcome to my non-biased review of the online marketing university that is “Wealthy Affiliate”. I say non-biased, although that term is quite impossible to truthfully live up to (We’re all biased to some degree, even though we might think otherwise) BTW, the picture above is the transition from monkey to perfection, go figure.
Some would say “it’s my honest review” implying it’s the truth, which is in and of its self, subjective eg: you could swear a product or service is fantastic, while my experience might be the complete opposite.
So, when I say it’s non-biased, it’s actually an effort on my part to sit on the fence and imagine a non-partisan perspective, although I’ve been a member of the company/community for nearly a full year? (Did I mention “I like to challenge myself”)

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Wealthy Affiliate is an online platform, bringing together like-minded individuals and providing them with all the tools and resources to facilitate their journey to success.
Starting a new business can be extremely daunting considering the amount of information you have to process. So being a member of a community of like-minded people makes all the difference when you find yourself bogged down with tasks and deadlines. It’s so easy to share your hurdles and get the help you need by experts with many years of the online experience.
The method of teaching at Wealthy Affiliate is step by step (paint by numbers). So if you follow the training with gusto, and do not deviate until you’re up and running, success is imminent ( and that’s when we can use our creative juices).
BTW: Never think you can start a business that has been set up for you and is turnkey, ready to churn out thousands of $ per day, for little or no money down and has the backing of 100% money back, NO RISK guarantee! those phrases and slogans are usually a big red light for “SCAM”. And there are plenty out there. So be aware. Or as the Latin term states, “Caveat emptor”
Having taken part in communicating with the great folk at Wealthy Affiliate, I’ve not been witness to any bad apart from “IMO” a small minority who find it in themselves to argue with one another on the forum. Arguing is an attachment to one’s beliefs, and the inability to share perspectives, but that’s another story for a more in-depth, post.
I had to write ugly because it fit in with my western theme (forgive me), there is no ugly at Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate “tools and training”
The tools and training at Wealthy Affiliate are highly sophisticated, especially when you delve deep into the annals of its resources. Imagine learning a skill and knowing that every day your knowledge is compounded, and there is no end.
Kyle, Carson and their team are consistently improving the tools and resources for the community, so nothing is out of date. (there is no need to go anywhere else).
I know! for an unbiased review, it’s reading quite the opposite. It’s very difficult to find fault in how the site is set up. I’ve spent a year there, working full time on my bricks and mortar business while dabbling, setting up my site, learning the intricacies of the online world, and meeting a few friends on the way, awesome!
The support offered at Wealthy Affiliate is unprecedented. The owners, their team and the community as a whole offer friendly advice and personal support whenever requested.
It matters not where you experience life, Pareto’s law will inevitably raise its head. So in effect, those that seek with intent will always find their space on the net. And those that don’t, won’t ; )
What I mean in the above statement is: There are people who want entertaining, and those who entertain eg (Producers and Consumers) “read this”
So I hope you find this review helpful in making your decision and finding the place that most adheres to your style of learning.
