A Place of Support, Care, And Unconditional Love
I first heard “It takes a village to raise a child” from a dear friend of mine many years ago. We meet at a new church that we began to attend at a difficult time in my life. A place of caring people who supported us, cared for us, and loved us unconditionally.
I had no idea what the meaning of it takes a village was. It wasn’t until we allowed the congregation to get to know us that I began to see the true meaning.
What Is The Meaning Of It Takes A Village
“It takes a village to raise a child” is a proverb that leverages the cultural context and belief that it takes an entire community to raise a child. A child has the best ability to become a healthy adult if the entire community takes an active role in contributing to the rearing of the child.
Are You Not A Child?
Now I know that if you are reading this, you are not a child. But if you are new to Internet Marketing and wish to learn how to earn an income online, could you not consider yourself as one? Are you not learning, and observing from others? Do you not wish to have a “village” to support you, to encourage you, and help you succeed? I for one, let go of my ego and admitted from the start, “I am like a child, I need a village to help me become stronger, wiser, accomplished, and successful”.
The Wealthy Affiliate Village
A few years back, circumstance in my personal life led me to Wealthy Affiliate.
My first village who raised me spiritually was my church family. Wealthy Affiliate is another village who has raised me professionally.
This community is made up of like-minded people. We all are looking for the same results as online business owners. We all care about each others successes. We help each other achieve our chosen goals. We don’t look at outer appearances. We don’t judge each other on our political or religious differences. We don’t let our cultural differences hinder our relationships.
We are a village of true Online Entrepreneurs!
I have been blessed with several villages, have you been?
I have witnessed so many people thinking they can go it alone. Life was not meant to be lived in solidarity.
If you are reading this post, I know that you have, at the very least, an interest in Internet Marketing. If not, that is okay. I hope that I can encourage you to find the village that will benefit you and you can become an asset to that community as you grow.
If you are ready to join a village that will teach you, guild you, encourage you, and support you, as you grow to become a true online entrepreneur, I invite you to read my review What Is Wealthy Affiliate.
