About Athanasia
Joined September 2015
Hello everybody!
My name is Athanasia and this is my story.
I have been working as a waitress for more than 10 years. I am very tired of my job ,for many years now, and I have always dreamt of having my own business. It just never felt right for me. Busting my ass for a low salary and then being exhausted the rest of the day physically and mentally. And on top of that having to put up with a cranky boss.
So one day I was just googling and I bumped into something called affiliate marketing. It sounded very interesting and I started to search even more, and then I found you guys :) This is something totally new for me and I'm willing to put all my energy on it, and make it happen!
And so, my journey begins..


Update 2017/04/20

Many things have changed since I joined WA.
Best of all: I quit my job one year ago, that means 7 months after I joined WA.
Joining WA has been life changing because it introduced me to a whole new world.
It all started when I created my first website. I started wondering what's behind the visual part of it and I decided to take some classes in HTML and CSS.
Now I am studying Front-end development :) I really love it because there are so many directions that you can choose and because it's an endless source of knowledge and opportunities.
Thank you WA and thank you Kyle and Carson. You helped me understand that everything is possible and that I can take whichever direction I choose in my life!

Hello!
I love Love LOVE your profile message!
I also bumped into one of your trainings on adding WA links to your website and am now one of your loyal followers. Thank you, you helped me understand and take me to the next step here at WA.

I too practice daily meditation. I wish it was taught early on in our lives as children. It is a wonderful habit, imagine where the world would be if everyone picked up meditation?!

Thank you
Robby

I saw your original post about how to link to a specific part of another page or post, and it helped me out a lot. Apparently, that function is not built into WordPress, so your post filled the bill.

I'll be "following" you as part of our greater community for any other gems you might come up with - we all grow together. Much success in all you do. Ted

Hi Athanasia, thank you for your support in following me. I am a South African living in Cape Town and a Newbie to Internet Marketing. I am impressed with your accomplishments so far which are very encouraging for me. It shows that the WA system is working and that it is a good decision to join the WA family. I see you are into programming. I started as a programmer way back in 1968 on mainframe computers but not active anymore. I wish you further success and blessings with your business.

So I'm completing my WA review from Lesson 9 in the Affiliate Bootcamp courses. Kyle has us write it up using Site Content. Do I have to publish the post first before I can add images? And do I do that in the dashboard area of site manager? Hopefully you understand what I'm saying, I may not be explaining it well.

Hello Shinika :)

I really liked your interests about self healing ... and the beach and travels of course lol
I have myself transformed my life the past two years through meditation and it all started when I first read about the law of attraction.
I look forward to see your website. By the way, if you need any help setting it up don't hesitate to send me a PM.

Lots of success in whatever you do,

Athanasia

Oh just lovely! I also have had a profound healing with mediation. The law of attraction and the things we can manifest into this world are limitless.

Time to plug away at this website :) I will definitely be in touch .

Please feel free to PM me as well- even if it is just to talk. hehe

Looking forward,

Hi! You speak to my own heart. I have just begun building DECIDE AND DO IT. On my site the door is so big you cannot find the frame! That's just what I want. I'd like to do everything (little-by-little) so that I taste the whole potential of the Internet, before I narrow my vision. So I'm starting with the biggest concept. DECIDE. How do we decide? What gets us out of procrastination mode? Might we DECIDE sooner than later if we understand Decision Thought? Thank you for following me as I will you. Joni

Hello Joni and thank you for following me back :)

I like your idea for your website. Share the link of your website on your profile page so that all of the members here in WA will have access to it.

I wish you lots of success,

I went on a planned vacation during which I fell ill. Now I'm back on my feet. I'm editing my first blog. Gosh, it takes so much heart and care to communicate clearly. This is a very, very important experience for me. I care so deeply about how I speak to others. I want to be so gentle, caring, and clear spoken. People are so precious. They deserve to get the most sincere and truthful communication that I can provide. I have a big, long highway ahead. I know so little. Be patient with me. I don't want to put my site link out there just yet. I need a little more time to build it up. For one, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change my theme. I went premium. I bought a domain. I picked a free theme from North, and it never comes over to be my background. Stump the band.

Hello Athanasia and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in 2015 you will surely have realized that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Athanasia it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hi Athanasia,
I so totally love your name it's so beautiful..
Thanks for the follow, it brought me to your bio which I enjoyed as well.. The start of your bio, minus the waitress part, was exactly how I ended up here. I keep reading so many people's posts and what nots, and keep seeing people writing how they are not making any money, and that worries me a lil'... Okay a lot... I do realize that most, maybe all of them are doing the niches part of WA, and I am going towards the promoting part of WA.. The boot camp part of it I should say.... I am doing so because I just started learning about and practicing mindfulness and don't think that I'm that great at writing and or sales... and mindfulness and soon yoga I just kow are going to be my passions... I just love everything about mindfulness already. I do think that I could drive people to want to check WA out.. It just might be a lil difficult when I can't tell them an amount of income income to help entice them some to want to join... Anyways, I guess where I'm going with this is, I just really hope that I can still get people to join, because I do believe and truly feel that WA will be one of the best investments and opportunities that I will have done for myself.. I mentioned that I thought mindfulness and yoga will be the cure all for everything, well I think I'm going to be adding WA to that list as well....
Thanks for listening to me babble on, but I did want to ask you , what is your niche or niches, if you don't mind?
Well I'm gonna go and call it a night, since thats what it is... Lol! I know not to funny, it's late. But I did want to message you back before I went to bed. Have a great night and message me anytime!
Until then,
Ttfn.
Teresa Lynn.

Hi Terese,
Thank you :)
I understand your worries. I believe that the key to success is to be original in whatever you do and write, to be you. And of course posting content regularly, good keyword research and all the things Kyle mentions in the training.
Something else that is very important is feedback on your website and constantly learning and improving your skills.
I truly believe that if somebody doesn't give up and do all these things, will eventually succeed.

My website is about how to make meditation a daily habit. I struggled for many years with that and that's why I decided to write about it. If you scroll down, here on my profile page, you will see a link to my website on the right bottom.

Have a nice evening and don't hesitate to write again,
Athanasia

Hi Athanasia,

I really enjoyed reading your bio and especially your 2017/04/20
update. I became a Premium member within this past week. I particularly liked how you quit your job only 7 months after you joined WA. I love the specifics in your story. I would like to follow you because of all you wrote.

Hello Paul :)

That's very nice to hear.
Yes, WA has changed my life and I am very grateful for that.
If you have any kind of problem setting up your website I would be happy to help.

I wish you all the best and lots of success,

I'm taking you up on your offer to help with my website! It appears to me that the design that I selected is nothing like what I have when I pull up my new website. What did I miss? Thanks, Athanasia

Athanasia Premium
Hello Paul :)
The themes looks different when you activate them because you have to add your own images to your header, background etc
In the gallery they are being displayed with images just to show you how it will look when you have done your modifications.
I apologize for the late response. I am on holidays right now thats's why.
Reply
PDWilliams Premium
Isn't the theme like a background picture understanding that content is added on top of it? I don't see that picture on my website.
Reply
Athanasia Premium
The theme is like a wireframe that you need to add content-colors-pictures to. It just gives you the structure of the layout.
Reply
Athanasia Premium
Login to your website and go to Appearance-Customize to make modifications.
Reply
PDWilliams Premium
When I open my website, shouldn't I have my theme as the opening page; the background picture? I don't, not at all. I have another, a basic one.
Reply
Athanasia Premium
Have you uploaded the background picture to your website yourself?
Reply
PDWilliams Premium
No. I opened up Site Rubix, then selected, I believe, Site Builder. I then got to the point of choosing a theme and I did so. Does that make sense?
Reply
Athanasia Premium
Yes. Next step is to add background picture, header picture, colors etc so that there will be something to show.
Do that by going to Appearance-Customize.
Reply
PDWilliams Premium
I don't think I'm to that point of selecting all of the above. When I pull up my website, I get a black and white page. In the middle of it, it says, "Hello World". I didn't choose that page. I chose a colored theme with a desk and computer. I believe it is named "Winsome". Athanasia, I don't want to pester you. I feel as if I've taken up more of your time that is appropriate.
Reply
Athanasia Premium
No worries :)
As I said before, the theme doesn't come with the image, in this case "the desk and the computer".
You have to upload an image of your choice after you have installed the theme, so there will be something showing instead of just "Hello world".
Reply
PDWilliams Premium
Where do I find those images? Is all of this in the training that I haven't gotten to yet?

Thanks so much for the info, but more importantly your time. By the way, I've through the website questions (with your help). I'm now moving through C1.

Athanasia, 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 Athanasia.
