Hi there! Thank you for visiting my page.

Why am I here?

It was 3 AM, and I was staying up so that I didn't have to worry about getting up early the next day. The next day being moving day, oh joy. If you detected sarcasm that is probably because it was not an ideal situation for me. I was not packing up my family to go live in a brand new house with a white picket fence and a yard. No siree, I was moving back in with my folks. If any of you have been in my situation before, you know how much shame you feel in this moment. I had finally struck out on my own. I got a job, I had my own place, my own individuality and freedom. Then it all came crashing down.

My first job was at Cold Stone Creamery, and boy did I love that job. It wasn't until I took on more hours and more responsibility that it started feeling like a job. Even so, my co-workers loved me, my supervisors loved me, heck, even my customers loved me. My boss was another story. He started out super thrilled to have a hard working person like me on the job. Then it seemed as if his time of the month struck. (I apologize for that lovely image.) He began firing people left and right. I was the third to go. So I was unemployed with all of my bills. Anyone who has been in the situation of making enough to scrape by knows that there's really no spending to cut when your income disappears. I mean, it's not like I had gold toilet seats or anything. I lived in a one bedroom apartment where all of my expenses were either utilities, or internet. (Aside from rent of course.) Snoot at my internet if you will, but this isn't the 1990's anymore. If you want a job nowadays, you need the internet.

I finally got another job. This time at a company called Sykes. I was an AT&T representative, and a work at home employee at that! I was there for a while and even switched departments a few times. Everything was great, aside from some missing pay. (Yes, they're getting sued for that. Not from me, of course.) Then one day, I got laid off. Now with my rent at $655 a month (Yes, be jealous.) and my bank account showing only $520 I knew I was in trouble. So I finished breathing into my paper bag and called the folks.

Now how did I get here?
I was actually watching youtube videos and came across a comment about multigiftcards Don't get me wrong, it sounded 100% like a scam, but I'm desperate! So what does a desperate person do but turn to google to see if a place is legit or not. I came across this website: easierthanmcds and began to read. I loved the factual way that everything was typed out. It was indeed educational, but at the same time, you could feel that there was a person behind it. Someone humanizing the facts. I continued reading and found out about this site. Moments after joining Wealthy Affiliate, the owner of that page messaged me. My entire experience here has been so warm and personal. I feel like I truly have another shot at life. And the best part? I get to be my own boss for once. I'll tell you one thing for sure, if this all works out, I won't be firing or laying myself off.

Again, thank you for visiting my page, and feel free to message me about anything.

Best of luck to you and your sites,

-Paula
AriaNozomu's Goals 3
Money Goals
Originally, I wanted enough money so that I could buy a house and pay for everything for 12 months without a job. That way, I have some wiggle room if I ever lost my job again. I think my goals have changed to buying a house and making a living.

Realistically, I'd be ecstatic to earn anything substantial. If I make $100 off of my site, you'd better bet I'll be doing a happy dance. I might even post it on my site!

As long as it takes.

Great to see that you've added some goals Paula!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Mornin' sunshine...

I so appreciate your position and perspective. Want to let you know that for me, some of my worst catastrophes lead me straight to my greatest moments in life. Betting your fiasco will end up being just what "you" need as well!

Holler if you need anything.

Best to you...

Hi Paula,
Welcome to Wealthy affiliate, you are in a great place. I couldn't help notice, you actually remind me of myself when I first started here, all bitter about how life had screwed me over. My big speech was much longer lol, having been through numerous crappy sales jobs and actually being scammed in one of them, boy oh boy did I write a long blog here about that one (Its deleted now).

Anyway you will find that you will turn your self around here. While you will have to work hard for success, it will come. But in the mean time you will feel this place will help clear your mind of all the old stress endured by your previous jobs and you will find new ambitions.

It will not be long until you completely change the message on your profile here to something more positive and I look forward to seeing it.

I wish you all the very best.

See you around.

Jason

Thank you for your kind words. I try to see the positive in everything that happened. I don't hate either of my employers for what happened. I'm just stressed that I have to move back home. Either way, I plan to kick butt here. I'll probably re-do everything I wrote after I've actually gotten some sleep. Lol

Sincerely,

-Paula

Howdy Paula,

Thanks for clicking my link. Unless you and I have talked, I don't know where you, where you're from, or what you thought this site might bring you.

Either way, take a moment to fill out your profile so that I can get to know you better. Along the way, take a note of the number of people in my network and consider adding a few to yours.

All the best,

Norm

Thank you so much for the warm greeting. I actually found you through google.

I got laid off and am having to move back in with my folks. I read your review of this site after just reading your site and allowing it to link me to some of your other stories, and it sounded like a dream come true. I have so many hobbies, and am quite opinionated. This just sounds like what I've been waiting for.

I'll be sure to fill out my profile and complete the training. If I do well, I'll be sure to mention you when speaking of my success.

Sincerely,
-Paula
