Hard Work And Persistence Pay Off

It’s fun for me to see what others are doing to succeed online. I’ve had the desire myself for quite some time to be an entrepreneur, to have my own business. I’ve basically thought about it for my whole life, but I didn’t really decide to try my luck in business until after I’d retired from working for other people.

I had some hits and some misses along the way, and about a year and a half ago I came across a website called Wealthy Affiliate, where I could join for free and see what it was all about. I’ve always thought that FREE is good, so I figured why not, and signed up.

Now one of my “things” is finding successful Wealthy Affiliate members, and other successful online business owners, and learning about their successes. Then I write a blog post about them. It’s inspiring, and I get a “kick” out of it.

In this post, I’m going to profile a woman whose name is Grace, and who uses the online name “littlemama.” What I find interesting about Grace is that she is chronicling her path to success, and we can get a glimpse of her rise in income as she continues to work.

Grace isn’t an online millionaire.  Not yet.  She’s on her way though and it won’t be long until she joins those others who have achieved that lofty rank.

Grace joined Wealthy Affiliate in September 2016. During her first year, she made a grand total of $483 online. Not much for a year’s work. It averages out to only around $40 per month.

So far this year, she’s earned a total of $19,561, with a couple of months to go. Now that’s a nice increase. The chart below is from Grace’s own website.

How hard has Grace worked in the last two years? Here are some of her totals, again from her website.
In her August 2018 report, she says that she has written 525 posts for her blog, averaging over 1,600 words per post. She’s written over 862,000 words so far. Amazing!

She’s also has over 10,000 email subscribers. She gets nearly 2000 visitors to her website per day, and increasing.

She’s way ahead of me. I don’t have an email list yet, and I’m just closing in on my first 100 posts. It goes to show what can happen with intense and constant effort.

Littlemama produced another graph showing how her income has grown over time. The red line represents the number of new posts written, and the blue line is her income over time. Check it out.

Looking at the above graph, Grace started to see her income start to rise in her 14th month, right when she really started to write. It was around the time when she wrote her 250th blog post on her website that the steady climb in income began.

In my opinion, that’s about when the search engines began to rank her website as an authority site.

My site is getting traffic, but it hasn’t yet reached authority status and because of that it’s ranked a lot lower by the search engines. You’ll learn things like search engine optimization once you join Wealthy Affiliate and start your training.

Another interesting characteristic I see in the graph above is this: It takes about as long to become successful with an internet business as it does with an offline business. I’ve been told that and I took it for the truth, so seeing Grace’s graph has fortified that belief.

Way To Go, Grace! Keep It Up!

Grace has also qualified for the upcoming Wealthy Affiliate Super Affiliate Conference that is held annually in Las Vegas, NV. It’s an all-expense paid trip for those who have signed up either 300 paying referrals in a calendar year or 100 paying referrals in the last quarter of the year, September through December.

Update:  Grace posted her year-end income totals recently.  You can check out her post here.

I’m pretty sure I’m not going to make it this year. I had high hopes, but I haven’t put in the work needed to succeed in that endeavor yet.

I got side-tracked around the middle of the year this year. Life happened and I let it happen. My business efforts got pushed to the side for a while. I’m back on track but I have to make up some time.

Can You Be Successful Online Too?

Of course you can, if you really want to.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money upfront fo do so either.  In fact, if you find people asking for a large sum just to sign up for their training, then you should run the other way!  In my younger days I was burned a couple of times and lost quite a bit of money because I didn’t take my own advice.  I was suckered in.

Wealthy Affiliate won’t do that to you.  With Wealthy Affiliate you can sign up for FREE!  As a matter of fact, pretty much everyone signs up for free.

The free side of Wealthy Affiliate gets you started and lets you see if you want to pursue an online business.  You are given 10 free lessons on how to create your own business, and are given 2 free websites and training on how to set them up.

Don’t you think that’s a better way to see if you want to work online that putting hundreds of dollars into training and  then trying to get a refund if you find out you don’t want to do it?  Good luck with that.

If you’re really interested in checking Wealthy Affiliate out, now is a great time to take the plunge.  You get to start for free, and if you like it and decide to advance to a premium membership, you can get a great discount by taking advantage of the upcoming Black Friday Sale!

Normal yearly membership is $349 per year, but during the Black Friday Sale you can sign up for $299.  Comes out to less than a dollar a day.

Thanks for reading my post.  Please leave a comment if you’d like or if you have something to say.

I’m Grant.


Hardwork truly pays. Seeing and reading Grace’s story, it motivates me to do more. Hardwork pays when the effort is on the right thing. I doubt it if Grace would have been able to achieve that growth in her second year if she wasn’t on a platform like Wealthy Affiliate. 

You’re right, and I’ve barely scratched the surface of the number of people who have succeeded with Wealthy Affiliate.  The more successes I find, the more inspired I am to be successful myself.

Hello, Grant! Thank you for posting this article about Grace’s amazing success story! It is really encouraging to those just getting into the affiliate marketing business that with enough hard work and dedication (and apparently, lots and lots of writing) we too can find success. Wealthy Affiliate is absolutely 100% worth checking out. The training is the best I’ve seen and the community is full of people who want to see each other succeed! Just amazing, stuff! Thanks again.

Wow! This is wonderful success story for inspiration. I believe all beginners will get real knowledge and make their decision for building their website. I have already joined in wealthy affiliate network as a premium member and also purchased a domain for me. I love all those training and community is very helpful. I hope I will be successful and create my life story soon. Thanks for publishing this helpful content.

If you work hard and consistently then you will reach the goals you set for yourself.  I think that working an online business is still the best way to reach wealth.

It is always a pressure to learn other people’s successful stories. That is because you learn a lot from their personal stories. You will see how they gradually got a growth and how they overcome their obstacles and you can always use that in your life for your own success. Thank you so much for sharing Grace’s Internet Business Success Story with me.

Thanks for commenting on my post.  I’m looking forward to the day when I can write a success story about myself, but i’m not there yet.

Dear Grant,

Thanks for sharing this motivating real story. How do I know its a real story?

Grace is my friend and mentor for more than a year.

Thanks for the Great inspiring post! This has to be motivating, not only for me but also for many others. Being a full-time blogger reading the true success stories mean a lot to me. Whenever I am worried about my blog traffic and earnings I will read some of the online success stories and thanks for sharing.

I do appreciate you for guiding people in the right path and I am also a member of WA for the past 2+ years. Its one of the genuine and the best training platform I came across online.

Much Success!


Thank you, Paul, for your gracious comment.  You know Grace personally, huh?  That’s awesome.  Hopefully next year I’ll win my trip to Vegas and can meet her there, and you too.
