Are you a recent college graduate who is hindered by the bad economy?
Perhaps you’ve been underemployed or simply unemployed for what seems like an eternity. Maybe you just know someone who is, (we all do!) Are you stuck trying to pay off your insurmountable student loans while still waiting tables, working retail, or bouncing around temp jobs? If so, you’re not alone!
So, trust me, you’re going to want to read this page in its entirety. I believe I can help you out here.
Surviving after college isn’t as easy as it once was. Ever since the job market took a downturn back in 2007, it has only marginally recovered. Many educated people are still underemployed– stuck working temp, retail, or service industry jobs. After spending a fortune on college, it seems logical to assume one should be able to find something that at the very least pays a livable wage! There are far too many capable, intelligent people out there who deserve better.
However, since there doesn’t seem to be much light at the end of the tunnel just yet, I think it’d be wise to approach an alternative way of making a living. You don’t want to get stuck working a crappy job you hate for the next god knows how many years because the job market is bad.
Just because employers can’t be bothered to see your true potential, doesn’t mean you don’t have it, or that there’s nothing to be done about it.
I want to share a little secret that so few are actually aware of–you can make your own money online, from home. For real–no scams, not a gimmick.
So, just exactly how is this possible?
Let me tell you a bit about the field I landed in, online marketing (more specifically affiliate marketing), to earn my own income when I found myself unemployed after graduation.
The thing that makes this unique is you can enter in this field independently, as a sole proprietor. There’s no need to worry about whether or not some company is willing to hire you or sweat over having the perfect cover letter because you are essentially creating your own business here.
All you need is an internet connection, computer and willingness to learn. Really that’s all. No experience required! Think about the skills you’ve acquired during those grueling years of school–reading, writing, researching, the ability to be creative and think for yourself, they are about to pay off!
Now, internet marketing may have a sleazy connotation, but that’s only because there are so many scams out there revolving around it. But internet marketing, in actuality, is very reputable and lucrative.
And the fact is, building your own website is EASY these days. You can have your very own website up and running within minutes, without knowing an ounce of code or spending a dime!
Creating a quality content website, and being able to generate traffic to your website is going to be crucial to the start of your online success. You can start accomplishing this essentially for free. The tools, training, and help is all out there if you seek it.
I created this website to connect with people like you who are victims of this terrible economy, and show you there’s a better way.
I want to make it known that anyone with sheer determination can set up their own online business!
There are plenty tools available to help you out with internet marketing, you just have to be aware of which ones will actually steer you in the right direction, and what ones are just out for your money!
If you have the desire and motivation, you CAN earn a full time income online.
The best part about having your OWN source of income is you don’t have to rely on anyone else. No one can fire you because you are your own boss! You don’t have to worry if someone else thinks you are employable or not. Best yet, you will earn passive income–income that flows in while you’re not even “on the clock”. It’s sort of like having your own personal money tree! Building your own business isn’t like a regular job. You might work for weeks, even months, and not see a dime. But all that hard work you put in will pay off down the road more than you could ever imagine.
My question to you is, are you ready to get started earning serious money online?
If you are, I want to let you know about the best place to start.
There’s an online university called Wealthy Affiliate that’s seriously one of the best training programs out there for internet marketers. It’s completely free to join and get started. No credit card information is even required for sign up!
Wealthy Affiliate University benefits internet marketers at all levels, from beginner to advanced. It’s a different type of education – they teach you from the ground up how to build your own online business. You’re provided 2 FREE websites, free tutorials, lessons and 24/7 live help from a community of like-minded business driven individuals.
One of the reasons so many people don’t succeed at marketing online is because they get stuck, end up frustrated and give up. But being a member of a community like Wealthy Affiliate, with easy access to people willing to help you 24/7, is going to make you far, far more likely to succeed.
Thousands of people are doing this and making money, every day. The concept is not well known to the majority of folks out there, and it might be viewed as a scam by many, but I can assure you from my own experience, and the experience of people just like me, it’s NOT.
It can’t hurt to at least check it out to see if it’s something you’d be interested in.
After all, it is FREE to join and get started!
I am sick of letting employers decide my fate. I decided to take the path to entrepreneurship. You should too.

Great post Wendy outlining what college students are facing even after gaining all the qualifications they worked hard and studied for.
It’s such a shame that in this day and age you are not guaranteed to walk into a decent job after all the years of hard work they put in.
Well at least there is light at the end of the tunnel now, as more and more people are finding Wealthy Affiliate.
At least no college degree is needed here, just constant effort and you will succeed.
All the best
Yeah, it’s a shame some of us had to find out the hard way. But yes, there is a light at the end of this tunnel, and you’re right -it is a great opportunity for ANYONE regardless of their education.
Wendy, you are my survival guru!!!
Everything here was spot on. I hated the fact that I spent all that time and money on a degree that is getting me nothing. I signed up and hope Wealthy Affiliate can help me take more control over my income.
Awesome Shawn, you won’t regret it. If you are willing to invest the time and energy, you most certainly will be able to take control and earn a living. It won’t happen overnight, but think about it this way–people go to school for 4+ years and spend thousands of dollars in the process just to try and make a better living for themselves, but come out in massive debt and haven’t even started working yet. Imagine if you dedicated just ONE year to learning and building an online business, you’d be light years ahead of the rest of folks who wouldn’t put in the effort, and you could very well end up earning way more than you ever would with your college degree!
Heyyyy Ms. Wendy…just got your post on your $1000 milestone. Mega CONGRATS!!
I love your writing style if you indeed did write this. That’s a talent that can be used in many ways, i.e. ghost writing, selling articles to Internet Marketers, your own content, etc.
Just wanted to stop by and give you a big pat of the back for your accomplishment. I’ll see you in WA on your next success post 😉
Hey Charlie! Thank you, yes I write all my own content! 🙂
College students are being trained for world that no longer exists. If you’re going to get ahead in this world, you need build your own assets. The recommendations on this site are definitely solid!
Yeah, and from the looks of things it isn’t going to get much better anytime soon. Yep, totally agree. 🙂
I agree with the difficulty after graduate, and it will become harder later.. Even if I didn’t take the same path as others like on your story, I still get a hard time and want to become a free person! After all, I walk the same path as you ^^.. Good Luck ! We will succeed together in WA!!
Yes, being FREE is what we all dream of, right?
Thank you Wendy for your good advice for the college students. Actually anyone has a desire and is ready to take action can join W.A. It is a community, open learning, training, family, support what not.
Thank you for letting us know.
Yeah, Wealthy Affiliate is absolutely for anyone who has the desire and motivation to start learning and taking action in the online business world! People who are stuck during/after college are just one of the many groups that could benefit greatly from their training program.
