Are you having trouble getting started?

Please feel free to leave me a comment or question below and I can help you out.




  1. Wow what a great page of information. This sounds ideal for a lot of people and simple to get started.

    I can see you mentioned that you can get started for Free,

    But is this another one of those sites that says that, then asks you for loads more money to unlock the tools you need to get the results they tell you that you can get ?

    1. Damian,

      You can start for free. There is a paid membership which costs $49 dollars a month. There is no up sales to purchase another tool or purchase this to reach said goal. One price is all you need to pay. You will not have to worry about getting ripped off and having to pour your hard earned money into a system that is bleeding you dry.


  2. Hello There,

    Great post about working from home after you retire.

    This seems like a really great place to start a business online. There seems to be a lot of help, support, and tools

    How often and how much do you have to work on this to be successful?

    Did you start with WA when you retired?

    1. Joe,

      Thank you for stopping by. I will be honest, I really enjoy working online and this is where I started. When I first started I treated it like a 9-5 and now I work on it just a few hours a day. I say treat it like a regular job and you will be successful. Of course, you can have fun and do what you want. I know I did!

  3. Hi there Kurtis
    Brilliant post on how retirees can build a website andd earn extra income right in the comfort of their home.
    I think most people not only retirees will find your post very useful as I do not know anyone who is not interested in making extra income.
    Now talking of extra income, not everyone wants to work a second or 3rd job away from home and deal with traffic or office politics.
    I like the way you show how easy it is to build a website like 1,2,3,4.As you mentioned in your post,if one is going to work online from home, you need support from like-minded people to succeed. I remember when I got started and got stuck 100s of times but having a strong community always got me going.
    Finding a program to join for free and get started i think is a brilliant idea,this way,one has a chance to check things out and decide if it`s the right thing or not before spending money.
    Very informative post, thanks for sharing.

  4. Hello Kurtis,

    In the challenges of today, more and more people are looking for work at home opportunities and your site here is an excellent resource for helping those people find a great way to do just that!

    Hopefully your post for working at home for retirees will help people find their passion online. I know I will be giving it a try since it is free to join.

    Thank you!


  5. Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best online business training program that I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a member since 2015. Unlike many programs in the market, WA does not promise what it doesn’t deliver. In other words, they keep expectation realistic in the sense that success in business, online or offline, depends on our own effort and learning.

  6. Although I am not a retiree, I still found your post very meaningful and informative. I have just started WA and really excited about what’s to come.

    Is there any tips by your part go obtaining a successful online business? Also, how long did you take to get consistent traffic?

    Thank you!

    1. One tip I can give you is that you need to stay consistent. Whether that is writing on your website daily or doing some marketing with social media. Trying to extend your reach on a daily basis will help you become successful, while building a steady flow of traffic to your website!

  7. Hello Kurtis,
    You have certainly given a lot of great information here. Wealthy Affiliate sounds like the real deal. I like that you mentioned it was for beginners because that is just what I am! It seems like there is a lot offered for free. Even the $49/mon sounds very reasonable. Being retired, I am on a fixed income, so there isn’t a lot of room for extra spending. What other costs are involved with being a Wealthy Affiliate member? I have looked at other programs and there always seemed to be more money needed, or something else to purchase in order to be successful. Is this the case with Wealthy Affiliate?

    1. Kathy,

      There is one other charge. It is around 10-15 dollars. It is your own domain name. These can be purchased anywhere on the web or on Wealthy Affiliate and hosted there.

      You do not have too buy these, since you will get 2 free websites with siterubix. That is the only “extra” charge. But, when you buy your own domain, you will always own it.
