About 3dandelions
Joined April 2015
Hello!

My name is Emily.
I am a successfully self-employed single mom.

I have three loves in my life - my 3 Dandelions - my forever 2 little girl and two happy, healthy boys who have filled my heart with more love than I ever could have wished upon a dandelion for. Each day, as I inhale their sweet essence, I exhale upon them, like little growing dandelions, my wishes for them to realize in life more than their hearts and souls could ever have dreamed.

I started my decorated apparel business out of my home so that I could work around my 3dandelions' schedules and continue to be an "at-home" mom. I am grateful for my success in achieving my goal to provide for us and be at home for them.

Now that I have achieved my first goal of working from home, I am ready to begin my next goal - to employ other mothers: mom's looking for extra income during school hours, mom's needing flexible job hours to work around their spouses and children's schedules or mothers who have suddenly found themselves raising their children on their own and need immediate employment, and temporary housing, while in transition to the next step of their lives.

With this next goal in mind, I have expanded beyond decorated apparel and have created a successful eBay store that has grown so quickly, I can barely keep up and will be hanging the help wanted sign soon!

And still, looking for more opportunities to enable me to help others, I googled Car Wrap Advertising. As my apparel business started as a sister company to a Design & Graphics company, specializing in vehicle graphics, I had thought, how about those cars you see driving around with corporate advertising? Wonder how that works? In my search, I learned that individuals seeking to earn income through corporate car wrap advertising are a huge target for scams.

With my last search at a dead-end, I then looked into Affiliate Marketing, searching to earn additional income from the companies whose products I sell every day. Not only did I find affiliate programs for companies that I do business with daily, I found information on residual income through affiliate marketing here at Wealthy Affiliate.

And that's how I ended up here. I'm ready for my next journey!

Dear, dear Emily,

That our paths have crossed is so amazing and so wonderful. I found you through Jason's post. My goodness, you have a splendid and profound way with words. And now, after having read your profile here AND the post to Carson and the community I understand why.

Life has touched you and grappled with you in ways that no parent should ever have to face. And how my heart aches for you, and with you, that someone so dear and precious was caught in the trauma of our world where cancer robs us of our loved ones. I am so very sorry for this loss and pray you continue to be supported and loved for all the many delightful and soulful qualities you indeed have.

I am filled with gratitude that we can be a part of each other's ups and downs through the remarkable WA community, if you should be so inclined. Thank you fro dropping into my profile to leave me such a thoughtful message!

Your ability to reach out to others is precious! How wonderful that you have been able to succeed in being a stay at home mom. How I wish I could have done similarly when my five were young and I found myself divorced. Such is life...we do the best we can with what we have.

Blessings to you!

Linda

Linda,

I am here. And I have read your note. And it has taken me a some days to respond. I never in a million years, ever thought that there would be such community at WA. It has quite taken me by surprise, to find so much more than I had thought I would here at WA. It never occurred to me when I signed up, that I would meet so many wonderful people. And that the beauty of life, of the goodness and generosity, would be found here.

And quite frankly, to be honest, I am a little emotionally overwhelmed! I have been thinking of Jason, and of you, and of some others here. I have shared your story, and Jason's with my mom. We have talked about our grief and we have cried, for us, for everyone.

I am so very touched and feel so blessed to meet you. Thank you for writing to me. Lives intertwined. Here through WA... who in this community thought that they would get so much more than training when they signed up?

So true, Emily, so, so true!

What I feel in a way that words don't capture well, is what you have well said, We are blessed and who would have thought that the WA online community had this depth to it.

I feel confident it has allot to do with the atmosphere Carson and Kyle have established. While they encourage us to focus on encouragement for each other's businesses, I think they understand, even as Jason said his recent post, that we are all coming to this table with varied backgrounds, abilities, and baggage. And to the degree it helps us to keep on with our goals, to be empowered in our lives and in developing our sites, we have that 'pay-it-forward philosophy to keep it going.

Kyle and Carson bring a lot of heart to what they are doing. I find them to be the most surprising young men on the planet! It seems to me that they have had a good upbringing, that values and morals were a part of their parents training. The fact they embraced qualities that are finding expression in the business model they have generated is a testament to the goodness they must have in them. That they found each other is amazing. This whole thing just amazes me! I have to pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not dreaming.

I agree with you that it is also overwhelming. We can care so deeply for others and feel somewhat at a loss in how we reach out...hoping that something we say, since we cannot do much, is reaching their heart. I yearn for the time when the earth will be healed of all this ugliness and the traumas of war, sickness, and lack such that people young and old die every day because they don't have enough food. It makes my heart feel less despondent to know in time it will done and over and a new beginning imbued with peace will take root.

May your day be filled with joy and you and your precious mom, who must be allot like Carson and Kyle's mom, having a very special heart, may you both find those smiles among the little dandelions "-) and moments of life.

Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your day!

Linda

Hi, Lindon...Unfortunately, I don't always find the time! I just keep working steadily each day :)

The first website in the list is the new website that I am building for my business that I have owned for seven years, so that is my first focus each day...keeping my current clients happy while working to expand business. The next two are my new websites that I have created here through the training at WA...coming along slowly, but steadily, they are works in progress!

Having been in business for myself for some time now, I know that the to-do list is never complete! Just keep taking as many steps forward each day as you can! And never give up! And that, is success! Wishing you all the best of it here at WA!

Emily - Inspirational profile and work ethic. I am sure to learn much from your activities. My long association with photography and signage has led me also to explore vehicle wrap (hey - I even have space on my power chair and I am very active in my community, and I know a heap of chair users etc, etc, thinking). So-o much still to explore. I aim to live forever ~ so far so good. Must be some way to bookmark your writing. I look forward to more of it.

I love the idea of wrapping your power vehicle. You could be onto something there! My sister-company has applied graphics to all sorts of items - from guitars to boats and off-road vehicles to skateboards. Anything with a surface can handle some vinyl!

I too look forward to seeing you here around WA!
Here's to living forever!
Cheers!

allchristie Premium
You're right. Any surface. In the 90s I seemed to do a series of coffins... like flags for veterans, and a final wrap for a clown friend of mine, complete with balloons, painted faces carnival scenes etc in the vinyl ~ happiest passing I have ever been to. Please note us Aussies tend to push the envelope of humor.

I can totally appreciate you wanting to spend all the time with your children, I have a little one (1.5 year old daughter) and I feel so fortunate to be able to work at home.

I can tell you that it is possible and the Internet presents this opportunity Emily. You can literally take any passion/interest that you may have and turn it into a full time business and we are going to teach you how to do this here at WA. It will require some work and dedication, but it is well worth it.

You have a community of support behind you, myself included. If you ever need anything or just want to say hi, simply reply to this. Would love to hear from you. :)

PS. I hope you are having an awesome week thus far!

Hey Emily and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Emily, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
