Series of interviews with members of the Wealthy Affiliate University
As a participant at The Wealthy Affiliate University for over 4 years now, I still find it hard to explain the question “What is Wealthy Affiliate about”. This question has been asked many times. And I stumble over my words when I want to explain to my (offline) friends the inside World of Wealthy Affiliate.
Nowadays, a lot of people are connected online. Via Facebook, Twitter or other Social Media Platforms. And with every move you make online, you connect with real people. Sometimes we don’t realize it, but behind every click, we make online, there is a real person working hard to provide the info you asked for. Every letter is typed, every image is uploaded by human handlings.

I will give it a try to explain to you what Wealthy Affiliate is about. This online open education resource is a living encyclopedia. I always found an encyclopedia rather dull. But the knowledge center on Wealthy Affiliate is a lively place. And the lessons are bursting with energy. You’re not sitting bored at a school desk.

I asked my husband, who is an observer, and hears my stories about this online community, can you tell me “What is Wealthy Affiliate about?”
And he said: “WA is just a little village, where everyone knows your name and they are helpful and giving people. He compared Wealthy Affiliate with the song of Cheers, and he is so right! I searched for the words, and he just puts his finger on the right spot!

An interview with Loes
In July 2014, I started my first website, I was 54 years of age
At the moment I am combining 2 websites, the interviews you see here were part of another website. I will republish 115 posts and pages the upcoming period.
People with money, not the millionaires or the billionaires, but the trillionaires.
Relatively seen, on cigarettes.
Sofa hanging, with a blanket, a book and a good glass of red wine.
Just beginning, there are great growing perspectives ahead!
Tina Turner, she’s awesome! Malala Yousafzai, she’s the bravest girl I know! Esther Hicks, she’s fabulous!
|Tina Turner||Malala Yousafzai||Esther Hicks|
No, I am in and out of the bathroom in 3 minutes, no time for a song. But I am a car singer. You know, the one who looks like an idiot behind the steering wheel😉
Finally retired? And traveling with a camper around the world. I want to take my own toilet and shower with me.
I am a go-getter, my mother always says what she has in her head is not in her ass. I look harder outside than I feel inside. I am a no-nonsense type. And I don’t take any crap from anybody.
Yes, 6 to be precise, the birth of my children, how wonderful it is to receive such a fragile living being in your arms. That’s the most precious feeling I can think of.
My husband, I am trying to convince him to start his own website, I would love to help him with the technical part and creating images for his posts. He has terrific insights about how the world could change for the better.
Yes, I do, at first, I couldn’t hit the publish button. I was all sweaty and shaky. And so afraid to get out there. But I swallowed my fear and got better and better. There are now thousands of posts published by me.
Sweatpants, t-shirt, fleece sweater, and Ugs
Finding the subject, once I have decided where to write about, it’s easy for me.
Keep going, no matter what, keep going, do every day at least one positive thing on your website.
I teach them, what you send out, you get back, so be very careful what to say and do to someone else. It might not get back to you now, not even within a year, but it’s getting back at you at a time you really do not like it. Be sure that the things which come back to you, will be nice things.
Chicken, I don’t know why. I just like them. I am a veggie, so they are safe with me. Don’t get me wrong, I love the smell and taste of meat, and when the time was different I would eat meat, but the situation in the world makes meat production too much of a burden on the environment, that’s why I have decided to stop eating meat. As Gandhi said: Change the world, start with yourself.
Home, a private environment, definitely at home.
I am not in the position to recommend any place, because I haven’t been on a holiday for over 20 years. But I have the UK and the Scottish Highlands on my bucket list. I grew up with the Booklets of Enid Blyton, and ever since I like to visit Corfe Castle and the Isle of Purbeck.
Talking about something that was told to me in trust. I have felt ashamed, sad, stupid and to my regret, I lost a good friend over it. I have learned to do that never again. I will always remember this, as long as I live.
Inequality, injustice, discourtesy, rudeness.
When my children come by unexpected to visit.
To live my life without leaving too much footprint on this earth. I am passionate about the environment and like to find creative ways to do more with less. I am a vegetarian, I recycle and I am a recycle buyer.
