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.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate About?

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. You are lit by the action that prevails inside Wealthy Affiliate.

Series of Interviews with Wealthy Affiliate Members

To get you acquainted with the people of Wealthy Affiliate, I asked some members to cooperate to answer a couple of questions, to which they enthusiastically responded and they said YES! I have asked them to answer 10 random questions from my 25 questions-list. But all 25 would be ok too.

Thank you so much! You all gave me the chance to show the world the people of the Wealthy Affiliate community.

And I welcome every member who reads this to PM me their answers (you find the questions when you scroll down) to join the interviewee.

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!

The people of Wealthy Affiliate who participated in this quest and many other members are all priceless to me!

And you? You can join this awesome community too!

interview question 8

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😉

interview question 9

Finally retired? And traveling with a camper around the world. I want to take my own toilet and shower with me.

interview question 10

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.

interview question 11

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.

interview question 12

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.

interview question 13

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.

interview question 14

Sweatpants, t-shirt, fleece sweater, and Ugs

interview question 15

Finding the subject, once I have decided where to write about, it’s easy for me.

interview question 16

Keep going, no matter what, keep going, do every day at least one positive thing on your website.

interview question 17

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.

interview question 18

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.

interview question 19

Home, a private environment, definitely at home.

interview question 20

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.

interview question 21

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.

interview question 22

Inequality, injustice, discourtesy, rudeness.

interview question 23


interview question 24

When my children come by unexpected to visit.

interview question 25

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.

    I personally tell people that Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that teaches you how to make money recommending products and services to other consumers from well known companies such as Amazon, Target, etc via there Referal programs. I also mention that the Referal programs are free to join. I also am sure to tell them that it is one of the most common ways YouTubers and social media influencers make money.

It is so much more that an online learning place! I have gained a ton of knowledge and the help there is incredible! There is always someone willing to help out which makes it into the awesome place that it is.

  6. Daniel says:

    I can see that this people are very successful and satisfied with wealthy affiliate platform. I am with this community for a year and I have never seen anything like this. Very legitimate platform full of real and trusted people who always want to help with anything. Thanks for such interesting reviews.

  7. Dale says:

    I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and absolutely love it.  I love what you are doing with the interviews.  I have been out of the game for about 6 months because of personal issues but I am coming back and going forward.  It is so great to read all the info that you supply.  I read a lot of your stuff in the community but its a pleasure to see your site.  Great job.

  8. Jennifer David says:


    I have been with Wealthy Affiliate since July 2018 and have accomplished so much.

    What Wealthy Affiliate means to me is a platform where you can make your dream into your reality.

    A platform where you can really learn how to make you on line business work and become a success.

    Training is step by step on building a website from the beginning to the first published content and beyond.

    I can personally say that I have accomplished a lot in the few months I have been with Wealthy Affiliate.  I am sure if I was not using this platform I would not have reached this far in my business.

    This is the best choice that I have made this year and my success is far more than I expected and more.

    Thank you for this article you have given me food for thought in remembering all that I have accomplished.


  9. glenda says:

    Hi Loes,

    Thanks for this great interviews article. My opinion with this interview article is that it is one of a kind article. You have different style of connecting to your readers and by that I’m very impressed with your style. Going through your interviews, I found some useful tips on how you started your internet marketing career and how you handled life uncertainties well which motivated me to apply it in my life.

    • Loes says:

      Hi Glenda, thanks! I believe you always have to stay as close as possible to yourself. Whether it’s online or offline. Glad you found something to work with!


  10. Tiffany Domena says:

    Hi Loes! That’s a great idea to explain Wealthy Affiliate thru interviews with others. I have met each of these amazing people within Wealthy Affiliate, and they’ve been extremely helpful to me as well. It’s always interesting to see stories about how people learned to start an online business and made it work. Thanks for the inspirational interviews.

  11. Quinn says:

    This was a great Wealthy Affiliate review. Wealthy affiliate is a great community to be at and the people there are so cool. I have been a member of the wealthy affiliate program for 3 months and I have met some really nice people myself. The wealthy affiliate program  has so many free online web tools you have no other choice  but to be successful. This was a great article again I really love the way you laid it out.

     Thank you again I appreciate the support you are giving to the wealthy affiliate program.

  12. joshua collins says:

    I love these interviews that you make where you answer many of the questions people think about when considering Wealthy Affiliate. When I joined I remember my mentality and how I was going to make money more or less instantly, but theirs definitely more to it then that and that is something I learned. 

    Like all business it takes time to grow so I like how you have set a long term goal to be at least retired within the next 25 years, its all about the long term goals for me. I think I would be in a better position with my business if I thought more about long term and less about making it big in the next week.

    Thanks again for sharing Loes,


    • Loes says:

      Thanks Josh, official I have to work the upcoming 10 years, I surely hope, that I can shorten this period and fill the gap of 5 years until my retirement date:)
