About Artistbeck
Joined September 2016
An artist by nature, I am a very outgoing person who loves self expression. I am a visual artist and love sculpting out of stone as well as feathers. I sculpt feathered head pieces which I call wearable art. Also, I love painting in acrylic and oil as well as figure drawing. I used to teach art in a private studio. Dancing is also a love of mine. I do swing both East and West Coast Swing as well as other ballroom dances. My favorite is West Coast Swing. It is all the rage today and attacks a lot of the younger generation. I also have a great love for fashion and have derived my since of style from the 1920's and 40's. That said, I have a very diverse fashion since. I consider myself to be very outgoing with a love to people.

Now that I told you a little about my interest, let me tell you what brings me to Wealthy Affiliate. I lost my previous business do to circumstances beyond my control. So, I am here to start over. My goal is to have a successful business in which I can afford myself the luxuries of life that give me great pleasure as well as making my own time to enjoy life to the fullest.

That is it for now

Take Care,
Beckie

I love West Coast Swing! I used to do a lot of ballroom dancing and taught it for a number of years. I love the layout of your website. You might want to embed the dance video so that people stay on your site rather than get chucked out to another window. I wish you all the best here. Regards, Michael

Thank you very much Micheal. I will do that but I do not know how to embed a video. I was trying to put more than one video on the site and was advised that I needed to go through You tube or Flickr's platform but I don't know how to do that either. Everything I do on the computer I teach myself through trail and error. More error then trail....lol. I don't know if you can offer some help. If so I would greatly appreciate it.
I am still working on my content but, I think my site will do okay.
Thaks again for all your help.

Go to the YouTube video you want to embed, click on share and it will give you the choice to copy the embed code, then in your post click on the text tab and paste the code in the position you want the video and then click on your visual tab and you will see the video, save your post and look at it from your site

Hi Michael,

I was wondering if you could share with me how I might go about embedding the videos to my website?

Your help is appreciated.

You first have to upload to YouTube and then use the info I have given above. If you have any further issues you can PM me. Good luck.

OK, thank you Micheal. I did that but, a friend of mine told me after she watched the video, the video took her to You tube.

What do you think?

Did you embed the code into your text? The code is about a paragraph long. If you send me the link I will copy the code and send it to you.

I did embed it before I copied the link. I am not sure what the problem is. Perhaps you can see if you have the same result as my friend when you look at my site. The site is
http://goballroomdancing.com

That is if you don't mind. Please excuse the content I am still working on it.

Thanks

Your videos work fine and I stay on your website. Your friend must have used an old link of yours? I would watch them as they do it, the three videos worked within your website. The second one only works for your country, it has a copyright which doesn't allow it to be watched in other countries.

There is so much information here you may get a bit lost, don't worry too much, it happens to a lot of us. Just take your time. Good luck. I followed you back. Steve

My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)

High Kyle,

Yes, I do feel stuck as I am a little overwhelmed. That said. I do what to use your training to make this work for me as I am very interested in doing so. I just don't think I will get it done in time to take advantage of the 1st month discount. This is much to my regret.

Thank you
Beckie

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Today is your starting point of your journey to expertise and success within the online world!

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Beckie! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

Hi Beckie,

Sorry to hear of the loss of your business.
But, you are in the right business now.
The training here is great, and the community of caring people
is even better.

Kyle and Carson have certainly done a great job.
All we need to do is take their advice, and work at this every day.

I wish you much success.
