Who is a Wealthy Affiliate?

Does One Need to be Wealthy…

to be a WEALTHY AFFILIATE? I mean, seriously, I’m a retired educator and I should know what a Wealthy Affiliate is, right? If I don’t know when an actor was born, I will hit the magic Google button. Doesn’t matter if I’m with a group of people or relaxing with my husband in front of the TV. Within 3 minutes, I will have an answer to whatever trivia question is burning in my mind.

So I began doing what I love to do…research. I fired up my laptop and I couldn’t stop reading.


According tp Mr. Webster: an affiliate is an associate, a partner, a colleague, a member, a link, a conglomerate, someone belonging to….We knew that, right? Now, how about the WEALTHY part? Having resources, or assests, earning a substantial income. Now we have a WEALTHY AFFILIATE. You and I can become a Wealthy Affiliiate. OK, this bears repeating: You and I can become a Wealthy Affiliate.

How was WA started?

Let’s go back to 2005. Two young men, Kyle and Carson, met regularly working on the internet trying to earn an income. They had ideas of what they wanted and began putting these ideas into practice, forming Wealthy Affiliate. I can see them looking at their computers saying “I have an idea!” Each getting more excited with their ideas. Let me say right here at the beginning, ideas are great, but we have to plug them in to bring them to fruition. Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim, did just that! Their ideas grew and they put them into action.

Today, all over the globe, there are over 1.5 million Wealthy Affiliate members and these numbeers are growing daily.


Wealthy Affiliate is a group of people, just like you and me, building their own online bussiness. That’s the basic explanation. Some have experience with the Internet World and many don’t. Guess what? Experience or lack of experience 

Here’s a simple breakdown of how this works::
