About Brookeflinn
Joined April 2014
After spending 8 years in corporate America because it was supposedly a safer way to make sure I was financial secure than doing the things I love, I have finally decided it is time to find a different path. I have a degree in music performance (I play the Horn and Piano) and I am a licensed massage therapist. I also have a great passion for animals (2 dogs, 2 cats, and a snake live in my house). I'm looking forward to learning a lot on Wealthy Affilate so that I use the internet to help supplement my income while I do more of what I love.
Brookeflinn's Goals 3
Money Goals
I think I would be happy to make a couple extra hundred dollars a month at first. Hopefully in a few months tat will turn into a couple thousand.

I would be ecstatic if I could make anywhere from $8k-$10k a month.

Right now I've got quite a bit of extra time on my hands so I'm willing to invest quite a bit of time. If I get to do things I love there's no reason I couldn't invest 8 or more hours a day.

These are realistic goals Brooke. By starting with earning a couple of extra dollars a month you will be able to scale your business and earn more over the longer term. When you know how to make the first few hundred dollars then you are more likely to know what to do to earn more. I wish you every success!

Start small, then expand is probably the best outlook on progress you could have. As far as time investment, if you're focusing on something you love than in many ways it doesn't feel like working, so 8 hours would probably be a breeze if you can spend that long on it.

Hey there Brooke!

Don't worry about it. I'm so happy you enjoy WA and what is has to offer. :-)

I just upgraded to Premium 2 days ago and I'm there where you're now. So much to learn and every time I complete a lesson I can't stop and have to go to the next lesson. Time is running so fast when you have something to do you really love.

Only action brings you where you want to be.

Keep working and I'm looking forward to hear, see and read more from your journey to online success!

Take care,
Nicole

Hey there Brooke!

You are entitled to one BIG, WARM WELCOME to our friendly, caring and sharing Wealthy Affiliate (WA) Community. And, yes, you have a very nice, unique profile – telling us that you would like to supplement your income while you do more of what you love.

I would appreciate your clicking on the blue freedomforus link above and taking a close peek at my profile and blogs. You will probably be surprised to see how many things we have in common. You will also see that I enjoy helping “WA Newbies” and those folks that happen to be disabled.

Let me know if you think my profile is a wee bit too long. Also, please share with me a little more in-depth your reason(s) for joining Wealthy Affiliate. Again, if I can help you get started off on the right foot I will give it my best shot.

Thanks - Larry - freedomforus

Hey Larry! I don't think your profile is too long. I think you have lived a full and interesting and life and want to share it with people as you help them. What kind of dogs do you have? My boys are a 100 lbs lab/pit mix (he's a big old love bug) and a 60 lbs pit/terrier mix (he's a bit ruff with other animals, but in general is just a big old snuggler). My cats are all the smaller side. Funnily enough I rescued both of them from under cars (one at a dealership and one at a metro park and ride station). My poor Soephie cat is the only girl in the bunch, but she loves her momma.

It's always fun to meet another person from Ohio. I've never been a huge fan of Ohio State though. I ended up moving north for college and getting my music degree in Akron.

The thing I'm most afraid of is finding an niche that will get enough exposure to make some income. From the little I've learned so far I have though of some really great ways to help a few other people make money, but can't quite come up with a site for myself.

I worked for almost exactly 7.5 years at a pharmaceutical and medical distribution company. Mostly I worked on the pharma side of the business helping people with their pricing issues. I moved out to the St Louis area (live in Illinois though) for personal reasons and my position ended up getting terminated due to our customer ending their work contract with us about 10 months into the job. I was pissed. My work there during the first six months brought the customer $200k under budget. They had a big inventory issue which I solved. I've been on unemployment since October 2013 and that just ran out. I've been having a horrible time finding another corporate job since all of my skills in business are home grown through my old company.

I've been a massage therapist, usually working from referrals only (only a handful of clients a month) for many years. I love it. I love how massage helps people. Making a full time living as a massage therapist is not the easiest thing to do though. Plus it is going to cost me a bit to get my license in Illinois since my Ohio one can't be used here. So I've been hunting all over the internet trying to find ways to make some extra cash online. I figure I have a bunch of extra time on my hand when I'm not looking for other jobs or taking care of my pack, I might as well use that time to my advantage.

So now that I've rambled on for way too long, let me say thanks for the message and words of encouragement.
