About AColby
Joined March 2016
Hello, my name is Amanda. I am a wife and a mother of four children: B is 7 years old, R is 4 years old, G is 2 years old, and Baby E was born in July. My family and I live in Oklahoma. I currently work full time outside of the home as an Electrical Engineer.

My husband is a small business owner. He installs and repairs garage doors and openers. He was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (an aggressive incurable brain cancer) in May of 2016. I hope to grow my website enough so I can have the flexibility to spend more time with him and our kids.

Hello Amanda and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in March last year you will have come to realize that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 290 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Amanda, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Amanda, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Amanda.
Reply
AColby Premium
Thanks, Kyle. I can't think of any questions right now. I appreciate the information about the success rates of bootcamp. That is really encouraging.

I really enjoy working on my website and the training here at WA. I just wish I could spend more time on it. I have two and a half more weeks of maternity leave before heading back to work as a full time electrical engineer. I hope I can get a lot done in that time.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Don't worry, I think we all wish we had more time. Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and as you move through the training you are going to see some really good progress. I always say, as long as you are moving forward you are moving in the right direction. :)

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

If you need anything going forward, let me know.

What's going on Amanda? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress through the training. If you need a little kick in the pants, I've got just the thing for you.

It's my training here titled 'Starting from Scratch: The Strategies I Use to Build & Maintain Successful Websites' It is a Premium training so you may have to check back after you upgrade to get full access!

In the meantime, let me know if there's anything I can do to help!
Reply
AColby Premium
Thanks for checking in. I am waiting until tomorrow to upgrade to take full advantage of my starter time. Baby is due in mid July, so I've discussed with my husband making the commitment to premium until my maternity leave ends in mid Sept. I've got until then to make enough to pay to continue the premium subscription. I'm already on Lesson 8 of Course 1 so I'm hoping that is feasible if I can keep up this pace on coursework.

IveTriedThat Premium
Hey Amanda! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!
Reply
IveTriedThat Premium
I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
Reply
AColby Premium
Thanks. I've been mulling it over the last day or so and think I've got my niche idea. I am a mom of 4 and in the last year have become interested in survivalism/preparedness. So I am going to target a niche of other parents of small children interested in practical preparedness. Hopefully that isn't too specific.

Hey Amanda 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 Amanda, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
