About Becka56
Joined June 2016
Hi, my legal name is Rebecca but my friends and everybody who knows me calls me Becka. The 56 in my user name is the year I was born. Just to clear that up, since I've been asked about my user name. My grandmother gave me that nick name when I was a girl, including the spelling. She died when I was only 9 and I think keeping it is a great way to remember her. Anyway, it suits me. So, hello to all who actually read this. I'm a bit of a smart ass but I keep it real. I'm dedicated to my business. It's not a hobby, it's a business. I hope you're thinking is the same about your business.

I've been working on-line for a quite a while now. I didn't had the best of luck in the past but that doesn't mean I didn't make any money. Mostly I wasn't able to continue to grow because I had to start all over again a few times, life happened. Although, I've had some fun while learning different aspects of the on-line business world through it all. Adding "all those things you never learn while getting a degree" to my business education. I had one site that got a lot of traffic, mostly because people could use it for free. Unfortunately, due to some medical issues I lost track of things and the domain name expired on me. I came here to WA and built that one over again. Now I've let it go, because I've moved on to other endeavors, more personal to me.

I've tried other things out there over the years too, MLMs and such. The one thing I have never done throughout the years, is quit. I believe that I and I alone, nobody else, am responsible for making things happen in my life. We're all responsible for our own lives, no matter what anybody else does or what happens. How we react and how we move on, is our choice. I choose to build a better life for myself. I choose to have something to leave behind for my children and grandchildren. Nothing and nobody can break you, unless you let it or them. Build your life and future, irregardless of anything or anybody that tries to get in your way. I hope you are like minded and determined to succeed no matter what. Because if life gets in your way and knocks you down. You just have to get up, dust yourself off, and start over. Keep starting over and you'll be a winner.

If you want to connect with me through my social networks, please let me know you're from WA when you do. I've had a bit of a problem in facebook due to too many "bad" friend requests. If you understand my meaning.

Thanks to everyone for being so great! WA rocks!

Here's another little something I like and have posted on my computer screen:
It starts with a dream.
Add faith and it becomes a belief.
Add action and it becomes a part of life.
Add perseverance and it becomes a goal in sight.
Add patience and time and it becomes a dream come true.

A little bit about what I think about WA. I think WA is a wonderful place to learn and share knowledge. I haven't found anything else quite like it, anywhere else on line. Others have claimed to be similar but failed to follow through on those claims. All they actually offer are more on-line tutorials or lessons to purchase. No real "coaches" or other members who you can ask questions. Those who have "coaches" limit them to a set number of calls or sessions, and didn't really help you get anywhere. I'm sure you have an idea of what I'm talking about. I learned a lot of what I know by doing research. No coach or lesson plan taught me how to do most of it. When I came to WA I didn't need the lessons, I was looking for something else and I found it. The membership here where we can interact with each other learn from and share with each other, is awesome. When you have a problem you simply have to ask for help and help is offered. I don't mind newbies asking me questions. In fact I love helping. I remember when I had questions and nobody to ask. Of course I'll help however I can. I believe the future is in businesses on-line. All kinds of businesses.

Hi mrs. Rebecca,
Thank you for the follow. If I had a girl I would have named her Rebecca. Love the name. I would shortened it Becky. Sounds so beautiful. I can find myself in your profile. I am also no quitter especially if I put it in my mind to achieve it. i can be stubborn in it too, so my father always say.
Wish you lots of success with WA.

Hi Sarimie Sayang. Thank you for your kind words. I wish you all the best in your business journey. If you are new to on line marketing, not just WA, you have much to learn. This is a great place to begin. You have wonderful people here to learn from.

One small thing, I am not married so not mrs. I'm divorced so it's just ms.

All the best to you

Hi Becka,
Your bio is an inspiration to me to see that life has thrown you curve balls and yet you have come back and persisted. It is very helpful for me as a newbie to hear from someone with experience on different platforms that WA is a really good place to be to launch an internet business. Thanks for taking the time to tell your real story. Best wishes, Joy

In here I basically focus on business. You're right, I didn't say where I live. I only said something about my name because I was being asked about it. You're the first to mention it. I live in the USA. I've often told people who ask that I'm in a city that's stuck in the middle of corn fields. That's how I feel anyway. It's not where I came from originally. it's where I ended up.

Best to you in your endeavor

Hello Rebecca, Nice to be connected!
♫Thank you for following me. ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA.
I am a fairly newbie to WA, but I have put my head into it and I am prepared to do the work needed to reach success.
My first road bump was to how to decide on a niche. I thought it good to write a post on how I got to a decision. Please read about it here and leave me a comment. Cheers for now.

Hello Becka, thank you for welcoming me in to the community. Sounds like you have a lot of experience online. It also sounds from your bio that we have had some similar experience in business. I too have joined a few multi-level marketing companies and have made a few dollars here and there online.

I joined this site for the community and some shared experiences. I'm hoping to feed off of others experiences and get some real advice that works and not just theory or being sold another program that promisses to work. I also hope to share my experiences and advice where I can as well. Thanks again, and I look forward to gettting to know you and everyone here.

Hi Tuguyton, life gives us a lot to go through sometimes. The thing is to learn from it and go on. I'm sure you learned a few things from your experiences. I joined WA for the same reason, the community here. I can share and help others as well as learn from some. We all bring something to the group. You never know what resource or knowledge you bring, until someone asks a question and you have an answer to it. Meanwhile, ask away while you build whatever type of business you choose to build.

All the best,

Becka :-)

Thanks for the follow. I hope to aspire others like you in the WA community. As newbie in WA what words of wisdom can you tell me about WA community.

Is WA really rewarding and have you been able to travel and have financial freedom?

Do you have any other source of income or WA is sufficient enough to make a decent living?

What is the secret to your success in WA?
Reply
Becka56 Premium
You will learn good basic lessons on building and promoting a website to start with. The greatness of being a WA member is the vast resources of the community available to you.

I don't do much travel because I'm disabled and traveling is difficult for me. But you shouldn't base what you might achieve, on what or anybody else does.

If you looked at the websites I have listed, only two of them are through WA. I came into WA moving one site over to revamp, then built the sister site to it. I'll be building another web site soon that will be another completely separate business. The third in my overall plan.

I suggest you set your goals and figure out what you'll need to meet them. Then figure out what you'll need to build to achieve those goals. Make a plan and stick to it. That's how you succeed.

Hi Lori,

Your welcome of course. That quote is one of my favs. I have more posted around me at home. You might like "Bless my homespun heart!" It's hanging in a frame on the wall over the computer. I do a lot of beading and crochet. Sounds like you already have your niche picked for you, arts and crafts. I bet there's tons of things you can write about or find products to promote, in Arts and crafts.

Hope you're doing well so far in WA,

All of those facebook pages correspond to web sites, except my personal page of course. It all has to do with promotion of the websites.

Thank you Becka for following me. I like very much your sincerety and dedication to your goals. I've just started with WA so am pretty green. You're right thought about about the other programs out there. They pretty much turned me off of internet marketing for a time, but my age and physical condition has forced me to reevaluate. Then I ran across Wa right after getting scammed out of 258 dollars. WA was a breath of fresh air, to find someone not attached to the almighty dollar to the point of greed. I look forward to hearing from you and possibly picking your brain. Thank you again. Till later

You're welcome, of course. You know, we all get taken some time and learn from that mistake. I've been working on line for a while now because I really don't have a choice. Nobody will hire me due to my disability. Illegal or not, they discriminate against certain kinds of disabilities. But a mind is a terrible thing to waste and mine works just fine, so I work for me. I do take breaks from work time to time. (One of the luxuries of working for yourself.) But I always get back to people in WA, so feel free to ask away.

Thanks for inspirational,truly i enjoy interacting with people of various calibre.I think questions and answers are inside every human being.In fact not asking and searching by oneself,makes you stronger than most people who do.But sometimes it is better to ask stupid question rather than be all life donkey haha.
In fact,in Norway is essential to ask many questions while you start to work or so.

Keep it up and thanks for a follow.

Indeed,i have heard,thats what i was teached while working hotel work and even before working i knew that already.
Well,but on the other hand if you have too many questions it could be annoying if it is done by everyday,but still i dont think that way.I think as long as you do have questions you do progress.Well,funny thing as i set up new theme,my pictures from posts dissapear.Some people advised me to keep white background and black text for high readability and conversion rates.I think simplicity is the key,thats where i live it is very important to be simple and connected to things.

Take care,

How do I private message if I don't jump into premium right away??? But I'm really leaning in that direction. It's a little steep for me at the moment but not bad when you consider what it appears to be offering!!!
Reply
Becka56 Premium
I didn't know that live chat wasn't open until you upgraded. It's on the upper left side, third down, under the WA logo. Did you try clicking on it?

When I upgraded to Premium, 3 days after I joined, I just went to the monthly payments. I stayed on the monthly payments because it's easier for my budgeting. Can't tell you what to do, but hope you'll be able to figure out what works for you.

All the best,

Thanks Kemmy. You can build whatever kind of business you want while here in WA. The community is the reason I'm here. I moved a free site I have over and then started building a retail site as a sister site to go with it. They take a while to get going. So if your goal is to do retail, don't expect it go start bringing in money real fast. It take some work and time to build it up.

Nice to meet you too Donna. That sounds alright but a tiny bit negative. It took me to many years to get to where I have ownership of my own life and power. I won't give "life" or anything else any measure of power over me, like that. This isn't a criticism, I don't know how far you've come in your journey. Just my point of view, something to think about. That's all.

Hi Becka,
Thanks for your comment but I think you took it the wrong way. I reread my comment to you and I , myself, don't see anything negative in that comment as I laugh at that saying everyte I see it. It means to me, that I am a very, very, busy person. Everyone that sees it and reads it gets a kick out of it also. Believe me, on my journey through life, I feel as though I have experienced so much and seen it all. That includes most of the negative things, but I still keep getting up and overcoming all of life's hurdles. To me, that's a positive reinforcement in my life. No negativity at all. But I understand where you are coming from where it can be perceived as negative. But, I have used that slogan to overcome any adversities that I come up against and laugh. I guess it's how you look at it. Thanks for the insight. Keep in touch. Donna

OK, I get what you mean. I've done the same thing in my life. I refuse to let the negative things that have happened to me, ultimately change me into a negative person or change my goals. Sometimes the process is more important then the end results, because it forms our life.

Hello again, Becka! Agree! - persistence, listening to one's heart, dedication, patience. Luck may or may not come our way, but to win we must participate in the game. Reading your 'About' signifies to me why WA is great - nothing here seems stale. Every minute since I joined has been filled, and the green 'Get Started Here' is still waiting... Like you, I don't necessarily need the basic lessons - it is everything else that made me stay - and enjoy. There is no haste, and I know what I'll do.

'Becka' has a good sound to it in my language, and 'All the best' is:

Ønsker deg det beste!

Yes, I did read your entire profile and I am delighted that I did. You have marched down many trails and highways that I stumbled on. Most of my ventures put little if any money in my pocket. I did not quit. I decided top stop wasting my energy and money and keep on going.

Your parting comment is a treasure for me.

How are things? Good of you to drop by. I’m a newbie here, as you’re likely aware. So far, I haven’t made the first move to becoming a follower to someone else. The reason being is simple; I am new and am caught up in learning as much as I can. However, that being said, when someone offers to follow me, I take a few minutes to read their profile with the hope of connecting with them on some level. Then I take a few more minutes to drop them a line just so that they can know that I want to take a sincere interest in them. What’s your take is on that? I couldn't agree with you more regarding not giving up no matter what! good on you. ttyl

Hi Noel Carol, I'm glad you contacted me. I did read your profile and I'm sorry you don't see the benefits here. You can learn how to build your website for free and you don't have to become a premium member if you don't want to. The biggest benefit of being in WA is being a part of the community here. We all help each other. If you ever have a question about anything, all you have to do is ask. One of us, or more, will answer you. There are people in WA from all kinds of backgrounds and with all kinds of talents to offer. You can't buy the kind of help you can get here for free. And if you could, it cost you a lot. So try not to be so negative before you have all the facts. All you've looked at is the very beginning, without checking everything else out. I started without being able to rub to dimes together. So I understand you not wanting to spend any money without it being absolutely necessary. I budget every penny and save up for things that I actually need. As my business grows I still budget, plan and save. I highly recommend it.

I wish you all the best

Becka :-)

Hi Becka, well i'm not far behind you I am 59 as of Sunday. Life has been good to me considering. What you said is so true, we make our future, and no matter how many times we fall or were kicked down, we get our AS..... UP, and make it better. I know I have done it a few times, that's probably why I keep on moving along. Now the kids are grown, and I enjoy my life for me, and I'm going to thrive and do the things I have not had the opportunity to have done raising 3 daughters on my own.
I will make this happen, and am so excited to meet so many positive people like you. Lets journey together, and pump each other up when things aren't going as planned. Shoot for the moon!!
Much success, and keep it goin.

Hi Sylvia, Sounds like you lead a full life. You have things to learn and a community to help you here. The community is the reason I stay with WA. I have never found this anywhere els, in all the years I've been doing business on line. So whenever you get stuck or just aren't sure of something, ask ask ask. There will always be someone who can give you an answer.

All the best to you,

Becka :-)

Success online has eluded me till now but I am sure I am in the right place now, at last. I hope business is going well for you. Wishing you all the best for the holiday season and with your goals for 2017.

Thanks for following my progress. I just started 4 days ago and created my first website today. My target date is to have my Affiliate website with amazon.com running middle of next week. I will be doing this full time because I just retired last October as Corporation Treasurer of a Jewelry Company in New York City.

Hi Timotheus, pleased to meet you. You should do well with your background. You just have to decide what you want your business to be and build your website. You already know how to market it, which puts you ahead of most people. You could probably teach in here and help a lot of people.

Thanks so much Becka!

I will be glad to teach here, and help people. First, I have to do this, experience it. And then teach. :) (I am also a trainer/facilitator, and am teaching at centres here in Singapore)

You are right. I have to decide which business to be in. I thought of Digital Marketing niche. But when I did the search (as Kyle taught); e.g. Digital Marketing + Affiliate Program, I was confused by the search results. Would you happen to know if Digital Marketing niche is a good niche to be in?

Hi Becka thank you so much for joining my WA network.

I just read you profile and I love the fact you have given us so much about yourself, and highlighted that life is not always straight forward and that sometimes you have to just keep kicking away as hard, and as long as you are able.

Best wishes and hopes for you and your family, and all your endeavours.

Hi Becka!

I'm new, and got so excited when you started following me. I don't know what that means, but it sounds cool :-)

I am in southern Georgia and there aren't many entrepreneurs here that I would like to hang around with. Small town. People gossip. Not my thing.

Anyways, I also have a few MLMs going, only working ONE actively at the moment (as in building it as a business), the others are things that I actually use for my kids.

I just got my profile completed today, just to get that pop-up out of my screen LOL :-) But really anxious to get started and going big time.

Sorry for rambling on...thank you and hope to see you on the chat boards.

Becka56 Premium
I'm happy to follow newbies. I haven't been in WA very long, but I've been doing business on line for years. I don't get on chat much, but I'm always around at night if you need any help. Just send me a message and I'll answer.

Following each other builds our network in here. Not like an MLM network, it's a network of associates you can get help from and later when your further in your business give help too. That's what makes WA so different. We all help each other, no matter what business each of us has. I was happy when I found WA because of this. I get technical help from others in here that is invaluable to me. We talk about things that I couldn't find others to talk about in my real world. I love it.

My best recommendation for you at the beginning, is to follow your lessons. I recommend doing the second stage of lessons not skipping them to jump into boot camp. Some will tell you to skip the second lessons. The reason I don't, is you'll learn more about building your business by following the lesson plan first. Boot camp is for teaching you how to promote WA. I promote WA on one of my sites, don't get me wrong. But you will learn all about on line business in general by following the lesson plans. Which if your new to all of this, it will help you get grounded in all the various aspect on dealing with your on line business. The lesson plans were designed to help you set up your own website, for your own business and show you how to promote it. Then after you've done all of that, go ahead and go to boot camp to learn how to promote WA.

Have a great week

Becka :-)

Hi Becka, Thanks for following back, much appreciated. Enjoy reading your profile.

Becka! Are we long lost twins? I can appreciate your profile entirely word for word. Although I am sure that our "setbacks" couldn't possibly be the same but they could be along the same lines. I've had many ups and downs and still continue to question life and what there is in store for me.
I had a recent scare when my youngest looked at me and wanted to know what was wrong with me? I slurred "nothing why"? Don't drink so it couldn't be that. The druggin days were highschool and so that is far behind me. He insisted on the emergency room since there was "nothing wrong with me". I couldn't believe it but okay.
Once there I was diagnosed with pneumonia? I haven't ever been sick like that a day in my life. How the heck did I get pneumonia? Since it isn't contagious, and I am always busy doing something, including just selling my home, I tacked it up to getting overtired and overstressed, basically not enough rest. So i spent 3 days in the hospital, on oxygen when they finally let me go home with oxygen. Two weeks later, I am still breathing oxygen when my son is looking that is. I do not want to become a dependent on oxygen and I believe that is what those green tanks do.
Remembering WA, I got an interesting invite to come back and so I thought it would give me something to do especially after the move and sale of the condo. My youngest son (26) still lives with me and is basically trying very hard to care for me. I have been disabled and at home for about ten years now so I have to find something to do economically. SSDI is just not enough to cover the expenses and the way I would like to live.
I am also a grandmother and I am also dead set against leaving my two boys without something to carry them for at least a while. My oldest is 33, married and they had a little girl two years ago who is the little girl I always wanted.
We have two kitties and I would have a dog but she passed 3 years ago on Thanksgiving. I miss her so bad so possibly, when I have been given a clean bill of health. Unfortunately, last winter I was also diagnosed with diabetes type 2 and I am still trying to learn how to live a healthier life too. Lots of work.
So, I am just really pleased that you sent me a note that you are now following me and I will be doing the same in return.
I may sign up for some of your social links which is a list as long as mine. I just need to update my list and make sure everything is still working.
Take care of yourself and I pray for the best for you! Keep that chin in the air and don't let life mow you over in the mean time. If you ever want to talk? renelmiller0120@hotmail.com
God Bless you and your family!

Hi, Renel. I have a background in business and accounting too! I have, to say you've had your fill. I also have the D2 brought on by a massive infection in my lungs that Took about 5 months to get rid of. Doc looked at me and said "I hate to tell you this, but all that time with that infection and the meds, your blood sugars were up really high. And now I have to tell you that your diabetic." I wanted to kill the guy that caused it. Another doctor, that doesn't practice in this area anymore. After what he cause to happen to me, he stopped getting referrals. Yea! Except, I'm still a diabetic. Crap. I was already on disability due to a congenital disease in my spine. I'm not supposed to be able to walk, but I do. I'm just not the kind of person to stay down. You should have heard me telling that doctor off. Everybody in the complex he worked in heard me. Some of them clapped as I walked out. He was a real arrogant prick. Never listened to what anybody said, including his patients. That's a bad doctor and I'm glad he's gone.

There's plenty we can all tell about the trials of our lives but that's not the important part. Refusing to let any of it hold us down, that's the important part! Heck, I'm not even supposed to be able to walk! What do you think I do? I keep my core strong enough to compensate for the horribly diseased spine I have. And I walk. I don't do any marathons, but I walk. It's all about the attitude. Don't let anyone tell you you can't do something. If they do, prove them wrong! Find a way! You can do anything if you want it badly enough. I will also say, you can do anything with the strength of God empowering me. I made a promise to prove God with this new website I've just put on line. Don't know if you know anything about such things. But I promised to give the first thousand in profits to God within 90 days. He has to help make those profit happen in order for me to keep that promise.

A new website doesn't normally make money that fast. It takes time to get people to notice it and sniff around before they'll buy. I's human nature, people don't trust what's new. They have to check it out and get a feel for it first. See if they think you're trust worthy. We all have to deal with human nature when we sell on line, just as we would in a brick and mortar business. The only thing is, they can't look you in the eye and get a feel for who you are that way. How you present yourself on line is a bit different. So we do our best to put our best foot forward, as they say. I'm always asking for feed back, because I can't tell how I come across. Somebody else has to tell me that. That's one of the great things about WA. You have a lot of people who will give you feedback. Ask a question and you'll get answers from all directions. Because there are people from all around the world in WA. All walks of life, etc. So you are in the right place here.

God bless you and yours,

Becka

Becka, coming to this post I saw the snippet with the 'unhealthy diet bit'. I thought what planet are those people living on. Opening up the post and reading further I saw you know about avocados as I do.

They are wonderful and are highly recommended here in Australia. I used to live in an avocado growing area. All our avocados came straight from the trees. We only eat avocados in season so get the freshest and the best.

I have a taken a look at your food site and it looks pretty darn good. One comment I have is that your recipe menu is dropping below the bottom of my screen so I can't see it all. One suggestion I have is to do your menu as a parent page and then group the recipes into sub (or child) pages. For example see the attached. You would have to do some grouping. You could also group you about pages.

One thing you don't want is a long wrapped menu (apparently). If you need help with this just shout.
Reply
Becka56 Premium
Not sure what you mean about groupings. But you can click on any one of them or search for anything by category. I just spent over a month building the new site and really don't have the energy to work on another menu.
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
It wouldn't actually take much work. It's the same as you have done but goes further. For example you have recipes and then you have the others hanging off it. I don't know how you did this but however you did all you need to do is the same thing several times. Let me know what you did and I can give you a step by step guide. As you have all the information it is fairly quick to rearrange it once you know how.
Reply
Becka56 Premium
To be honest, right now I'm so busy with the new site. I can't take the time to look at it. I know it a matter of rearranging the menu. I'm working on the new one constantly. The site is still growing.

Just yell if you need help if you make a decision to rearrange it.

Even drag and drop can be cumbersome when the menu is large enough. Believe me. Besides I know how to do all of that. Have yo taken a look at the custom menu I created in my new site for people who want to be able to go right to what they want? I have an explanation of all the different ways you can look for things on the site, at the bottom of the home page.

OK I've already been up all night so I took a look at the menu on Pandora's Box Of Cooking. How is that not all on your screen? Are you using the one at the top of the page? Of course you are there isn't any other menu. I don't get it.

Hello Naomi,

Thanks for the vote of confidence! I decided a long time ago, I wasn't going to let anyone who wanted to keep me down - win. You have to have the right attitude to be a success. And another quote I like I have posted on the wall, to the left of my desk. "A success attitude is an ingrained belief that success is a forgone conclusion." It simply means that your attitude has to be, you are going to be a success; no matter what happens, no matter what anybody else thinks, no matter what stumbling blocks happen along the way, etc. Your goal will happen. Adjust your short term plans on whatever you may need to do to get there as you go. But the plan stays in place. You are always on track to your goal of a successful life. What that is, you decide. Personally, I have mine completely mapped out. I suggest you do the same. You will actually feel more self confidence and feel more powerful just settling in your own mind, exactly what you want. Because then, you can focus on what you need to do to get there.

Let me know if I can help you in any way. Have a blessed day. :-)

It is collectiblegemstones.com/neon-blue-tourmaline-opal-and-Ceylon-sapphire I visited your site tonight. Pandora's box of cooking. Wow, you are really geared up. I'm familiar with Dr. Mercola and Dr. Wallach. I only fry in coconut oil. I don't eat microwave popcorn. Hardly ever drink pop. I eat very little grain products because they are genetically modified. I avoid processed meats. This change in my diet took off 20 pounds. I will need to work on using fresh tomatoes. I still use canned tomatoes for the convenience. There is still more I can learn from your site because you have so much on it. Best of luck hun, smart-ass, Becka.

I will probably use something of his again in the future.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself.

I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

The previous site was also a WP site. I uploaded all the files from the old site through FileZilla, onto my computer. I thought I knew how to download them onto the new site here in WA but apparently not. I was told to use my website name for the Host name instead of the hosting company name and no port. I haven't been able to get it to accept any files.

WA Tech Support should be able to get you up and running.
You should have done an Export from your old site then upload the whole thing into your WA Woedpress and worked with it from there.
Can you not still do this coz it would solve a lot of your problem.
