About BetterDays2C
Joined February 2016
I just spent the last 3 years battling a rare form of Breast Cancer. I am very lucky to have survived! My husband or myself have not worked that entire time because I was so deathly sick and he had to take care of me 24/7. Now that I am feeling better, we must find a way to supplement our income. We are hoping this is the answer! We will appreciate any and all help!

I am 65 and my husband is 77. We desperately need to make this work. We tried a similar program several years ago, and it almost bled us dry! We finally had to stop because the payments were very expensive monthly. So you can understand why we are a little gun shy!

But I am willing to do whatever it takes to try and get this off the ground. I look forward to working with some of you to help us. I do now have the time and I feel better, so now I can spend time building this. We only have a few months before we are going to be desperate, so I will give it my best shot!

We have stalled, started and stopped several times over the last 3 years because of health issues and having to move twice. Life is still very difficult as I still have not regained my energy? But I try to push myself every day and am trying to jump start this program --- again! This time, my husband & I both are committed to working on this full time to get our websites monetizing. Wish us luck! We will also be reaching out for help. I am re-doing all of the training and am going to follow the steps exactly!

So awesome Connie, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

You've survived what it's possibly the greatest battle anyone can face in a lifetime so WA should be a walk in the park for you and I so hope that's the case in your brilliant future.

WA is a great platform for training and I'm really enjoying every lesson, it's well planned for anyone who wants to learn, I think what's key is finding a great niche and stick with it. Once you see traffic, then you'll know you're on the right path. Focus is very important, so if you ever feel demotivated, you better than anyone, with what you've been through, knows we can all achieve great things if we put our mind to it.

Best of luck! Wish you both the very best!

Thank You, Neia, for all of your kind thoughts! We truly appreciate your input. I do have traffic on two of our sites. I got so excited when I saw that! That has kept me motivated. I want to see some sales. But I am patient, and I do still have a few months before we hit the critical stage. Cancer was the toughest battle I have ever fought, and I am so thankful to be on this side of it! WA has been hard because I am technically challenged, but I do like to learn new things, and of course, my journey here is to give us more money so we can enjoy our retirement.

Wishing you all the best also! Take Care.

I love the name of your website. That is so cool! I also love ladybugs, so it is all good! I will check out the Facebook pages/group and get back to you. It is dinner time! Talk soon!

I am always available to help! Many have helped me on my journey, now it is time for me to help someone else!

I totally agree with order in your life. Mine has been so out of control for almost 4 years now. I really need to figure out how to regain control?? I am also creative, so I do have that avenue covered. I scrapbook and make cards, etc. for family and friends.

How do I join your Facebook group? Let me know. Also, when you are ready and want input on your site, let me know. I usually work from about 2P.M. into the evening most days.

Hugs back! Take Care. Connie

Brendan,
Yes, these guys are for real. They have spent the last 12 years developing this course and doing all of the training courses, videos, etc. I am very technically challenged. However, just by reading things two or three times and asking lots of questions of the members, I have managed to struggle through. Now I am feeling much better about things. Things are finally starting to make sense. What trouble are you having with the site? If you start at the very beginning, and progress through the training methodically, and complete each of the check off boxes at the end of each lesson, you should be able to navigate through.

I find if I keep a notebook and take notes, I can refer back to it. I also list the Course # and Lesson # so I can get back to where I left off. Also, do not feel bad about asking ANY question. You may think it stupid or dumb, but everyone that has been down this path has experienced the same thing. ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS until you understand it. Also, I find while doing the lessons if I get too frustrated or overwhelmed, it helps to walk away for a while and come back to it. Sometimes it makes more sense after sitting in my brain for a while. Initially, the site seems confusing, but the more you work in it, the more sense it makes.

Hope this helps. Are you in the Certification Courses. If so what course and what lesson? We need to know so we can look it up and help you. Take Care. Connie

I am glad I fired you up! You need that fire to get through this. Just keep thinking what it would be like to be your own boss and run your life on your timeline instead of someone else's! When you come back with questions, I will keep checking to see if I can help you. Take Care.

BetterDays2C,

Got a late today. Still on Lesson 2, but starting to understand how all the element are connected, interact with each other and connect you and your customers. These elements being your site, Google, the Social Network, and the Affiliates. It look like this interconnected system enables you to define, zero in on and pursue potential customers and they in turn can connect with you.

At least, in broad strokes, I think that is the way it works. Hope so.

The niche? They say it doesn't matter. Not so sure
sure. I'm Cause oriented such as forcing the Government to reopen the 9/11 investigation. Crazy? Guess I'm rambling, but I'm just trying to pull all this together.

How about you? What's your gig?

Cheers!

Brendan,
I think you are finally beginning to see the big picture and how everything works together. This information is priceless. I tried for over 9 years to get sites going, but I got scammed over and over. They would give you about what you get in the first Certification Course here, but then to get beyond that, they always wanted hundreds of dollars over and over again. I cannot tell you how many thousands of dollars I have spent trying to do exactly what WA is teaching me to do!

I think the message is not to stress over a niche. There are thousands of topics people are interested in. No matter your niche, there will be people looking for that info.

My gig is that my husband is 75 and I am 64. We have both battled cancer in the last 6 years and have horrific medical bills! We live only on social security and a small savings. Our savings will be gone in a few months. At that time, we will be in serious trouble. That is why I am here. We need extra income just to pay our medical insurance and pay for extras. Our rent just increased by $200 a month! We just cannot continue down this road. We will be out of enough money to live month to month very soon.

I am getting really close to starting to monetize our sites. I am also getting very excited. We actually have traffic on one of our sites. It is not much, but it is a start. So my advice to you is to continue following the training. ASK if you have any questions! I believe anyone can do this if I can do it. I am dumber than dirt when it comes to technical issues. But the training is so simplistic ( in most cases) that even I can understand it!! Good Luck!

Try not to get overwhelmed. Take a deep breath and decide where you need help. Let me know. I will be on here for the next 4 or 5 hours, maybe more. If I can't help you, I am sure we can find someone who can.

Last two days hectic. Had breakfast today with a religious group, though not overly religious. Go Figure. Anyway told them about you. So they put you and your husband on their prayer list.

Just finished Lesson 2. A relief! Starting to come together.

WOW Brendan! That was so thoughtful of you! We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness. I truly believe in prayer lists and group prayer. I am a Christian, and I used a lot of these groups when I was going through cancer.

Good for you, finishing Lesson 2. KEEP GOING!! It is pretty scary in the beginning, but as things start to make more sense, you will calm down and start enjoying the process.

Hi Better Days, I'm Alice. First of all let me say how nice it is you are here and how happy I am to be able to follow you and your husband as you step out on your forever journey. I know you have many other things to contend with in your personal life, but here I've found a great support group within the WA. I know there are many, many of us who will keep up with you and some you will surpass along the way. I hope we can be friends and encourage each other as we both step out as newbies... best wishes all along the way-Alice
