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.

Money Goals
I would be happy earning at least $1000 per month. I would be ecstatic to be earning $65,000 per year as that would allow me to quit my job and be my own boss. Since I am currently working full time and have 3 kids, I can currently invest an hour or so every evening.

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!

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.

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!

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! :)

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.

I don't think it's too specific at all. Good pick!

Good luck Amanda! 3 (almost 4) kids and you've taken this on??? Good for you! All the best!

Yes, I would love to spend more time with my kids. If I could earn enough to quit my job, that would allow me to do that.

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
