Worth It or Not? Reviews

Worth It or Not Reviews

Not too long ago I did a review of Wealthy Affiliate and other Affiliate Marketing companies, that I did not name, in Worth it or Not Reviews I’m going to change my tactic a bit.

In these reviews I will name the company, post a link, I’ll let you know whether I think it’s worth it or not!

Legit Online Jobs

This company claims a legit secret system for generating income online. For $34.95 investment, it looks as if you can make a great living in the online world overnight. Claiming that a single unemployed dad is now making over $9,000 a month.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? The problem? Upsell upsell upsell! There’s not a lot of description of how, or what, their methods are in teaching you how to create an online business. Nor can I find out if this is the initial investment the total investment or a monthly investment. To find this out, you have to commit the original $34.95.

Humble opinion? Not worth it. Too much risk even for $34.95

Hidden Business Letter Ideas

No cost quoted for this service, And it seems to be a monthly newsletter money-making ideas, most of which seems fairly obvious.

Not much information available on the website, except for vague ramblings.

Opinion? Not worth the risk. No information, no cost quoted, and no idea of what you’re receiving.

Wealth Trigger 360

Featuring Dr. Joe Vitale and Dr. Steve Jones, this program offers to change your mindset to be abundance thinking and millionaire thinking using a seven-step protocol to change the way you think. $53.49… not sure if this is a one time fee, a monthly fee, or a yearly fee.                                                                          Dr. Vitale & Dr. Jones

I’m willing to give you seven steps to change the way you think for free:

1. Change your mindset

2. Take action

3. Rid yourself of negative thinking

4. Focus on positive

5. Avoid procrastination ( see Step 2… also if one avoids procrastination is that not a form of procrastination in itself)? Something to ponder …

6. Believe in yourself

7. Believe in your dream

As I am a Life Coach and Business Coach, I can tell you that this is a pretty common protocol. You can change the wording, and you can change the order, you can add steps, or take steps away, the rule of thumb is that a step protocol is based on your client and clients needs.

That is the Secret Seven-Step Protocol!

Way back in the day I was a big fan of doctor Joe; slowly, I have been changing my mind. But I will save that criticism for another day and stick to the facts.

Along with Dr.Vitale’s:                                     Dr. Vitale

30 Day Intention Activator

For $19.98 You will be given a workbook and a guide book, along with inspirational music to aid you in your journey. The intention is to become clear and intuitive as to what you want and how to counteract the counter-intuitive thoughts that you may have.

Law of Attraction

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last what is it 10 years or more and have never heard of the law of attraction, this might be for you. But I will tell you that so you can find a lot of the information for free out there now.

This offer claims to be a “clearing audio’ to help clear your mind to attract anything and everything you want just by listening.

Awakened Millionaire Academy

At $47 lifetime access, because, in the past, I was a big fan of Dr.Vitale, I’m kind of tempted.

The pitch is that it will give you, and I quote, “15 Triggers to Achieve the Impossible”. Unlimited Financial Freedom and Spiritual Awakening. (Okay, I was tempted… after watching the video, I’ve decided it’s not for me).

Secret Mirror

Law of Attraction, Money Beyond Belief, and Awakened Millionaire Academy, using a different name. I have found that a lot of Dr.Vitale’s lessons are the same just under different names with different words, that is to attract you depending on what resonates.

Quite frankly, I find it intuitive and how he does this. If Law of Attraction doesn’t attract you, the Millionaire Academy might, and if that doesn’t attract you, Secret Mirror or one of his other programs will.

Including the one below money beyond belief. Millionaire Academy under a different name.

Money Beyond Belief

And Dr. Jones’ offerings:                           Dr. Jones

Life Coach Certification

Business Coaching Certification

Past Life Hypnosis Certification

Public Speaking Certification

I’m going to go out on a limb and keep Doctor Jones is offering short, as I see a recurring theme. It seems he can certify you and just about anything you choose relatively inexpensively all things considered.

I cannot attest to his courses, but I can tell you that my life coaching in business coaching, cost quite a bit more than his offer. If you are considering Life Coaching, and, or Business Coaching, I would be cautious as to his claims to be able actually to certify you.

Final word and opinion on Wealth Trigger 360

You can bet that the up sells will be endless during your time on this program.

Opinion… intriguing, but not worth it.

My feeling is that this is all the same stuff regurgitated and charged for in separate categories.

If all goes according to plan, my next post will be covering some of my favorite ideas and offerings I have found so far. Not all of it is about making money online but what you can learn online as well, and that’s what I’m going to cover next!

Have an Awesome Day!

I do have a question. What is your opinion on the Law of Attraction? I believe in it, but I also believe that for the Law of Attraction to work, you have to work to attract… what do you think?

Do you have a TRUE Business idea? What is it? When do you Launch, or Open? Let’s chat about it!

Affiliate Marketing Terms

Let’s get familiar with common Affiliate Marketing terms. (This is only the beginning)!

The Side Hustle

Not one of my favorites. It reminds me of the Shell Game. You know the one where the guy is on the street with the shells are the cards and flip them around, and you have to find he has a pea under the shell or, in cards the Queen of Hearts? You never really find the right shell or card? But, someone does, generally, this is an ‘associate’ of the person running the game.

shell game

Bait and switch. Shell Game

What exactly does side hustle mean?

A side hustle is a means of making money alongside one’s main form of employment or income.


A ‘side hustle’ according to this definition, is an income supplement or part-time work. It can also apply to the replacement of a full-time income. Even with that definition, it still sounds sketchy to me. When you read about a ‘side hustle,’ please understand that while I may not like the term, working a full-time job and adding a part-time job into that is known as a side hustle as well.

Work from Home

Okay, a few of these are sketchy, and yet a few of them are quite true and Professional.

Many companies and Corporations are now using the ‘work from home contractor’ as it’s a fiscally viable option. The contractor often makes a good income, from home, all while saving the company money by cutting down on overhead expenses.

Top Work from Home Careers

This type of title is overused. Not just by the sketchier sites either. MLM’s often used this one, bait blog post titles, and yet it is used by the legitimate companies and corporations as well.

It scores high in search engines, but to get to the top, it’s all but impossible by using this term.

Bait Titles or Clickbait

These are often known as clickbait. Clickbait is quite common in social media. The basic concept of ‘click bait’ is to create a melodramatic title for an online article to manipulate people into clicking the link and reading the content.

I think there’s a difference between click bait and engaging post title. An engaging post title makes you want to read, and there’s good content regarding the post title. While many will disagree with me about clickbait as the definition changes per user; often, the title has nothing to do with the post. A good example of this is FREE MONEY!! and next thing you know you’re on a casino site.

As I reread this, it sounds like I am not keen on affiliate marketing terms. That’s not true I’m not crazy about the terms mentioned above.

When starting with affiliate marketing and continuing, you want to have engaging terms you want to have a conversation with your audience. You, dear reader, are my audience.

If I haven’t lost you at this point, I consider myself fortunate. Why do I want to have a conversation with someone I don’t know? Because I want to show you what it is I do, I want to tell you a story about what I do with affiliate marketing.

I don’t want to sell you a side Hustle, I want to teach you how to work from home, but I don’t want to employ you, and most of all, I don’t want to ‘click bait’ you. I want you to be familiar with the common terms that I did in my search to find a place to learn what I am currently doing app wealthy affiliate.                                                                                                          Bait

With, I think we have 1.5 million members, however, don’t quote me on that, that some do use some click bait, that is not my intention.


One of my favorite terms. This is where we converse, I tell the story, and maybe something resonates for you, or it makes perfect sense and you, but you want to ask me a question, do you leave a question and I answer it not just in my own words, but hopefully I can help find a link that will aid you in your answer.

I may ask you a question with the hope that you will answer and maybe guide me a little. Maybe you’re not as techno challenged like me and can help me figure out why my one website theme isn’t cooperating with me today… that’s another story, though.

One of the things that I like about being where I’m at with wealthy affiliate is Jaaxy. I can plug-in ideas blog post titles and choose the ones that I like, and score well, but it may not always be as popular as:

‘Side Hustle Work from Home!’

I don’t know if you noticed something else about my site there’s no flash. I don’t disagree with people who use the Flash; it’s just not who I am. At some point I may get a pop up on this site, but so far not yet! (Lack of Flash is part of my Rebellion)!!

Some things are on my list of things I need to get comfortable with, and that’s the other reason why I like Wealthy Affiliate. I can do what’s in my comfort zone and even break my comfort zone where applicable, but I don’t have to.

One of the things that I’m becoming more comfortable with is the Vlog. I’m planning on doing more of those based on posts I’ve already written, and I may go more direct with the Vlog.

Now I find that I am babbling and have decided to close this post with this:

What terms, or titles, make you uncomfortable when looking for an opportunity like working from home or online?

What are your favorite work from home ideas, or posts about? Blog? Vlog?

Have you thought of a Niche yet?

50 Years Old and I’m Going back to School!!

50 Years Old and I’m Going back to School

While I’m not embarrassed by my age, I will say that I’m $39.95 plus shipping and handling… oversea fees apply! (Shh…I’m 50). I’m going back to school! Why do I keep mentioning that age thing? Oh right, I’m trying to wrap my head around it!!

As I’ve mentioned before I have been in my current career of Massage Therapy for around 27 years and I’ve decided it’s time to make some changes.                   Back to School


Because you’re never too old to learn something new and you’re never too old for a new adventure. I’m one of those people who needs to have something to do and I don’t golf. Retirement looms on the horizon regarding the physical aspect of my profession and I need to do something different.

MMO… Make Money Online

What I found most intriguing about this what’s the amount of information on the internet how to make money online. Trying to pick through what was a scam and what was real opportunity was a huge undertaking for me. Fortunately many of the sites that I went to wanted way too much money for me to even consider. They also offered very little information until you pay for their program.

At the time anything free that I found was far too advanced for someone that is as techno challenged as I am. I don’t understand coding, nor did I understand much about websites except for the basics of an easy build site.

I had an existing website that I wanted to put Amazon products on. Seems pretty simple… Oh, Nay Nay! Trying to find where, and how to put the code… became a challenge that was so far out of my ‘wheelhouse’, that I gave up. Until the FREE portion of WA… more on that later.

I literally fell into this. I was wondering around the internet one day, as I often do when I found Wealthy Affiliate.  I decided that for the free trial they were offering it was worth it to give someone shot. So I entered an email account that I have for these investigations. (Truthfully, it’s basically a junk email). This is the email I use when I don’t want to be bothered by incessant sales pitches.

I started the free training, and I did get emails that were sales pitches, but far from useless. These emails were more of encouragement on where to go next in the training, and how to utilize my time better while doing the training.  Wealthy Affiliate


As I continued through the FREE training, I learned more each and every day then I had in the previous three years. (I had signed up for a few cheap courses on Udemy for SEO, how to link affiliate like Amazon, how to build strategies for Internet Marketing. Most of these were way too advanced for me. Techno Challenged remember)?

I came into this thinking that this was also going to be beyond my scope. Boy was I shocked! Within the first two days, I had far more understanding in the ways of the internet than I ever thought was possible.    WA University

One of the other things that attracted me to Wealthy Affiliate was the transparency of the program. There’s no overnight success offered, no Get Rich Quick promises, but that they do offer extensive training to become successful in Online Marketing.

The best part? No hidden fees after signing up! None, zip, zero, nada. Shock and amazement still are a part of my day with this factor!

Things I Would do Differently / Things I am Changing

1. I would wait to sign up with Amazon. MAYBE! You have 180 days to make 3 valid sales, or you will be bounced out of the Affiliate Program. The Good News? You can reapply in 30 days!

I joined Amazon too soon! My website was still in the rough stages, no real structure, not great content… no audience. No Audience= No Sales.

2. Find this Platform sooner!! Or, recognize it in my searches! I can’t believe that I missed it throughout my years of searching! LOL

3. Pace myself better.

4. Time Management needs Improvement!!

My Next Challenge?

I plan on making a VLog of my posts as well… Yikes!

Why would I do this?

Because sometimes listening to a post is easier than reading it!
