About AphroditeB
Joined April 2014
We all have genius inside of us. Whether it is realized or not is a matter of finding structure and a channel for it.

Hi. You can call me by my username, Aphrodite, or my name, Hana Najla Ali. I find describing myself very difficult. I prefer to participate. "who I am" in a given situation tends to change based on the specifics of that situation. There are a few unchanging constants. I am dedicated to God, family, and citizenship. My passions are education, travel, math, and nature.

I am a student and an educator. I homeschool my children and I am in college (my second go around). I work from home as a customer service representative and independent contractor.

I have dreams of being both a world traveler, establishing schools in needy communities....and also being an off the grid homesteader. This may be why describing myself is difficult. I am notorious for these types of incongruencies.

Hi EyeonChildre,
Thank you. I am following you because I really want to support your cause. I don't have any experience in this area, though....I read something you posted just recently and you asked the question, "can you imagine your children working in the piles of garbage."

I think you have the right idea about trying to earn money and not relying on donations only. I hope you can set up a business in the Philippines. Making connection with other like-minded business owners and government officials will help you I think. You might want to look into what other nonprofits have done. I really don't know anything about these things, but I have read some interesting things in business magazines... try www.fastcompany.com. Well, I'm on your team EyeonChildre.

The tortoise, I also struggle with my finish being as strong as my start. But I am working on it and in time I will master it.

AphroditeB Premium
Ah, you understand. I am learning that the closer the things I start are to my core values, the more likely I am to finish...About the tortoise, he is successful. So we should harness our inner tortoise :) Slow and steady AND consistent, we'll win the race, God willing.

Hi Najla,

Just checking in to see how things were going for you? As for me, the going is slow (tortoise, haha!). At times I feel, I am running short of time... but then I hear this voice, "There is no hurry, mate, everything is ok..., you are there already!". I take a deep breath and relax... it feels so nice! Life is great! (And especially here with WA).

Hi Wondermn,

It's funny you mention a tortoise- 'slow and steady...', right? Before we become insanely successful internet marketers we'll learn self-discipline. We'll learn to manage our time, and we'll learn to manage our inner spaz (the part of us that is inclined to panic and self-doubt). That's what's in front of me right now.

I'm a great starter, but I'm not the best finisher.... My ex once told me that I am irresponsible about everything, except my children. It's so funny because he was right. A year and a half ago I found my dream job- working from home, making good money, with tons of flexibility. I got bored and wanted to go to school. I took a leave of absence and went to school. I am doing well, but school ends in two weeks, and I was ready for it to be done two weeks ago!

Then I found WA. I haven't had the time to do anything to brag about, but it's like you say, "I'm already here". What I've been shown here is there is a way I can do my own thing in the world, just the way I want to do it, and that's all I ever needed. I can settle down, and stick to something. And when you're ready to stick to something, it's ok to take your time...I'll continue to work, and school, and school :). I'll take my time, and manage it well, being fair to everyone including myself. I'll finish the things I've started (that are good for me) even when I don't want to because, "I'm already here". I have found my voice. I'm just clearing my throat right now.

Wondermn, this was all already true, but it took your insight for me to put it together. Thanks. Stay in touch! Love that you checked in. I am burried in books right now, but in two weeks when I come up for air, I'll come see what's new with you- read some of your blogs, or just say hi so you can say hi back :) great luck Wondermn. Take good care.

What an inspiring read you have gifted here in this bio, Hana.
Looking forward to learning from you...

Respect, damien.

AphroditeB Premium
Damien, I love the "passing some knowledge back" part. All my family went to college and became lawyers or PhDs. I am only now beginning school in my mid 30s. I enjoy school for the book knowledge it provides and that it helps me to apply terms and theory to things I have already come to understand intuitively, however school wouldn't make much difference to me now (nothing would register) if throughout my life I hadn't been willing to listen to and learn from the people I have met and interacted with. I really embrace feedback and criticism (and ego stroking, but not too much-LOL). I don't always listen right away or ever, but friends and associates who are willing to "keep it real" are priceless. Don't hold back. Thanks so much!

Hey Kyle! Awesome doesn't begin to describe my week here with WA. How does one convey how excited they are without sounding crazy? I think there was some unintended foreshadowing (in a positive way) in the first lines of my profile. I am thinking I may have found my structure and channel... I am probably not genius, but I'll settle for fulfilled. I'll be sure to take advantage of my discount (THANKS!!!), but at the last minute. I try to take notes on frugality from Jeff Bezos.

Fulfilled definitely works, I don't think any of us ARE genius, but like you said we all have a genius inside of us. You are going to be able to do something meaningful within the online world and something that you are truly passionate about Hana! :)

I look forward to working with you Hana and if you ever need a hand with anything going forward, please get in touch with me. Chat soon!
