About BantingRose
Joined May 2017
Please excuse me if I'm not very active on chat, or take a while to respond to you, or ask a lot of questions. I really appreciate all the help.

My husband was laid off in February 2017, and I haven't worked for a while, so we need to find a way to replace his salary online.

I am concentrating full time on WA course work, setting up my websites, doing a RMR coaching course on the Banting diet and writing content, so I get really involved. I'm also packing for a move between times.

I was born in South Africa, married a Brit, and drive a German car. I have lived in South Africa, England, Canada, Argentina and Qatar.

We currently live in Norfolk in England, but are going to Gull Lake in Alberta, Canada, in August. Very good friends have asked us to stay while we take a breather before making our next move.

I have been married for almost 30 years, and have travelled with my husband to more than 30 countries. We have travelled by train from London to Hong Kong, and have cruised from Bangkok through Asia to Alaska and Vancouver.

I worked in IT using mainframe technology for 20 years. I did a WWW certification course 12 years ago, but could not deal with the problems i. e. html and apps would work on one laptop, but not on the next.

I am a qualified nurse, Reiki Master and reflexologist. I have a great interest in healing the body and mind using food, supplements and alternative therapies.

Thanks in advance for everything folks, it is much appreciated.
Cheers,
Rose

Wow. So, first time logging in for 6 months probably. We moved to Calgary in Canada from Norwich in England and the culture shock has been UNBELIEVABLE.

Our lives have changed so radically and neither of us have reacted well. Going from a house in the countryside to a condo in the city, from no crime, to having the police permanently parked a block away with murders and drugs and fighting has been scary.

Should we stay or should we go is the song of the moment, with the charms of Norfolk ever in our minds.

Food is one of the hardest things to adjust to and boy do I miss my home deliveries from Tesco, my grass fed beef and next day delivery from Amazon and Royal Mail. I miss my freshly prepared Sunday dinners for around $10 and paying double that for what I deem fast food means I'm doing a lot more cooking.

Car shopping was an eye opener. We had a little A class Mercedes in Norfolk which we bought for about $2200. Here something comparable would be about $7000. So now we use public transit and Car sharing which is great.

On the positive side, it's really good being back in our own place, the view over the city and river are amazing, we are loving the library - they still remember us after 11 years! and being in the heart of it all with great transit links.

We are also SO lucky in that we have amazing friends here. REALLY good friends. We don't see a lot of them, but they have helped us out so much and we are so grateful for them. From putting us up, driving us around, to shopping trips, moving furniture and giving us furniture, to just being there for us. They are absolute rock stars. A huge reason for staying here.

We both did tax courses and start seasonal tax jobs next month. Getting minimum wage is scary and makes you rethink every purchase - big difference from those old oil and gas salaries that's for sure. Despite the purported uptick in the economy, there are just no 'proper' jobs in sight and boy is hubby looking.

So, I'm going to be trying to get back on track, but have realized, while building good habits goes a long way, I can't go against my own nature, so will be making some radical changes to what I do and how I approach things.

Please think of us and send positive vibes our way!

Peace and Goodwill to all.

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! :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and I would like to personally thank you for choosing to join this community – you will find it is awesome. I have been here now for 12 months and I am here to help you along the way. If you have any questions at all feel free to contact me via my profile -Hudson.

As a new Member here, it would make sense for you to look at the starter training which you can find by clicking the link at the end of this message, (below). Like most of the courses here this is a task based course which will walk you through the steps required to build your website and so get started on that web based business.

THAT BONUS OFFER

Remember on my review page I talked about a bonus – well here are the details for you to consider.
If you join Premium within seven days of joining as a starter then I will be delighted to give you the following bonuses:

1. You will get a 59% discount on the first month ($19.00 fee only), or if you want to pay for a whole year then there is a discount of 36% on the total which is worth considering I am sure you will agree.
2. Personal access to myself at any time. I will help you with any questions you may have and where I can I will act as your mentor.

However this only happens if you join Premium within the next seven days.

Glad to have you with us at Wealthy Affiliate and looking forward to working with you,
Your business friend,

Hudson.

That training link is: just click on this and enjoy.
