On this page, I talk about The Wealthy Affiliate platform for starting a business online and share some videos that you may find interesting and enjoyable to view.

I have been on the Wealthy Affiliate platform since 2016 after spending the majority of my career life in The Hospitality Industry as a professional chef.

Help from all around the world is available to you at Wealthy Affiliate through our gated community of over 1.5 million and direct access to the Owners/Co-Founders, and 24/7365 Live Ticket Support.

At Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn how to make money online primarily by creating websites. Creating a website can be easy, and the challenging part about creating content actually becomes fun over time with all the other things you will learn which are all related.

You will find much useful information here on this site that can help you to make the decision if the Wealthy Affiliate platform is right for you to get started.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate not knowing exactly what to expect. I am extremely satisfied with what I am receiving and have locked in a budget of about $500.00 USD (give or take) per year for myself to continue to use this platform for as long as I want.

You Should Give it a go by learning more here.

Wealthy Affiliate started using video as a teaching tool back in 2012 in the form of a weekly webinar held every Friday Evening. This then evolved into a focal part of the training. People could attend once a week for a live topic and ask questions in real-time.

The below content is for educational and entertainment purposes. As your host & Guide here, I will welcome any comments and questions that you may have on behalf of the content contained within.

Economics 101 – Must watch Video

How The Economic Machine Works.

Economics 101 — “How the Economic Machine Works.”

Created by Ray Dalio this simple but not simplistic and easy to follow 30 minutes, animated video answers the question, “How does the economy really work?”

Based on Dalio’s practical template for understanding the economy, which he developed over the course of his career, the video breaks down economic concepts like credit, deficits and interest rates, allowing viewers to learn the basic driving forces behind the economy, how economic policies work and why economic cycles occur.

A complete Transcription of this video can be found here.

Optimized Videos

Wealthy Affiliate leverages the latest and greatest technology along with a unique integration into the Wealthy Affiliate Platform. They utilize what is called HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) which is an encoding standard in Adaptive Bitrate Video. The advantage of using this technology is that it recognizes user connection speed (bandwidth capacity) and delivers the videos in the most appropriate format.

What this means is that if you are on a fast connection, you will get a higher resolution video. This happens in real-time and if your bandwidth fluctuates, the video platform at Wealthy Affiliate will remain elastic in nature and continue to deliver the “best quality” video while retaining its delivery speeds.

Update from Wealthy Affiliate July 23, 2019

Video At WA Has Gotten A Huge Facelift:

As each week passes behind the scenes, the team at Wealthy Affiliate is consistently rolling out new “code.” Each and every week is one of improvement, with some projects being visible within the community, and other significant projects i.e. design, and speed improvements, for example, are quietly being improved in the background.

Live Weekly Training

There you will find hours upon hours of ‘Hints & Tips’ from an industry helper.

If however, like me, you can’t always take the time to see these Webinars live, they are recorded and archived for view at a later time. That is what I have done on this site.

Because the only thing constant on the Internet is change, my catalogue of training webinars starts at the beginning of 2018 and I will continue to update this compilation on a weekly basis as new training becomes available. I put this compilation together more as a reminder resource for myself.

Every recorded webinar is a minimum of one hour which may seem a long time to sit and listen to someone, but you can always come back to them or skip to parts which may be relevant to you.

It runs lengthy because there is also an open Live Q & A Session at the end of each course. You are guaranteed to learn something new which will help you to level up your website whether you are already a Wealthy Affiliate member or not.

[Full Disclosure: If you are not already a Premium Member of the Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Program, Your Full Name, Email, and creation of a Username And Password (write it down for future reference) will be required to view these webinars that are reserved for Premium Membership only.]
