Thanks for the follow Caden. I really enjoyed reading your words. Many people don't have a mission statement about who they are, I was very pleased to read that I am not alone in that. Keep rocking and never say die, right on.

Thanks San:) May I suggest a weight loss product from Clickbank for your site? It really works! It's called 'Fat Loss 4 Idiots' If you do a review of it I'd be more than happy to leave a comment about it. Cheers, Caden

Hi, Caden, Thank you for following me and also for the kind comments on 44 years of marriage. It has been a joy to have shared all those years with Nancy. She is the love of my life and deserves everything I can do for her. Look forward to keeping contact. If I can be of help let me know.

Hi Caden, and good for you, and having such a positive attitude during bad times. I consider myself so fortunate to have fallen into areas of government that provide for me, so far anyway, but even with that I see my benefits taken, pay reduced, and no raises worth anything, since everything else is going up faster, but with the world like lt is, any of us could lose everything. I don't know if I could be as "up" as you are if that happened.

I'm glad you agree with me on this mentoring program, not that it will happen any time soon, if at all, but you never know. A lot of people don't have any kind of background in computers, etc., and I think it's harder for them, and to have someone help you out at the beginning would be great. I know they have Live chat, forums, classrooms, etc., but I've had problems there too, and it would be better to have someone who knows where you are, and assigned to you, to help you over the bumps, since sometimes I'm lost just with the lingo, and even asked "what's a URL?" at one point. If they ever get a coaching thing going, then I might come back, but I don't know, since I have so many other things going, but maybe I wouldn't by then, so we'll see if it ever happens.

Anyway, from what I've learned, you can have success here if you work at it, so I wish all the best to you, and stay positive, that's the key to everything.

Caden Premium
Thanks Cindi. Yep, there are probably too many obstacles concerning a mentoring program here.
I just need to work out a niche . . . there are so many things I'm interested in, but just have a surface knowledge of.
I hope you're able to return to WA at some point; I wish you peace and happiness:) Cheers, Caden

My niche was wine, my website is havingfunwithwine.com, unfortunately I only got as far as making the website, no words, just a pic of a bottle of wine. The funny thing is, that I don't even like wine that much, but I had so many ideas (wines, appetizers, sangria recipes, winebottle & cork crafts). I even had my local liquor store email me about wine tastings, and got a subscription to Wine & Food magazine. I was going to put a quote of the day/week, to do with wine too, and maybe sell some wine related items someday. I had a million ideas, just couldn't get through the technical stuff. I'm going to give it one last chance in January, after the holidays, and see if this monster is really so bad.

I don't have a lot of interests, outside crafts and making jewelry, etc., which has been done to death, and even thought of doing it on Military Women, but more with the things I saw and did, and what it is like to live and work on base, etc. I just think I'd run out of material at some point, and the wine thing is more fun, as long as I don't have to drink it much. A mentoring program would help out immensely though. They could even have something like a job board, with a list of people willing to do it for a price, to earn extra $$, as long as they have been doing it long enough to really help. They could have a rating system from people who have used them, so you would know. I guess that would get a little detailed though, especially if WA handled the money part. Anyway, I might bring that up when/if I leave. Now that I'm talking about it, I'm getting excited again, so we'll see.

Anyway, I hope you narrow it down and get your website up and running, and enjoy what you're doing. There's a lot of people willing to help, I think the best thing is to pick one or two people and just go to them if you have questions. I'm going to try that next time. Live Chat works sometimes, except people are so nice they try to help, even when they don't have a clue, but some people there are real knowledgeable too. I'm sure you'll find your way, and will be a success at this. Good luck to you.

I think the concerns that would be thrown up, re being assigned a mentor, are:
> Who gets who for a mentor
> The mentor might get stressed out
> The person being mentored might not apply what was being taught
etc . ..
The benefits would be:
> More financially successful people in the WA community
Maybe they could say :
> You couldn't be mentored till you had been a member for six months?
> That you had to show you had followed the courses (this could be proved by the members website/s showing they had applied the lessons) . . .

I can just feel it in my bones that this can work, I just feel as though I'm missing some important piece right now. So . . . I'm going to keep at it,

I hope you do come back. I think a blog for Military Women would be very helpful. I was talking to a client the other day - he was in the army for most of his working life, and I could tell that the life he had led could only be understood from another military person's point of view. As much as I wanted to understand, I might as well have been from another planet. He had had experiences that I can only hope never happen to me.

Your talents are needed Cindi. People like to read what you write. Hope to see you back next year. Take care, C

Thank you so much, I will definitely give it another try. You're right about the military, it's a way of life you can't fully understand unless you lived it. I miss it every day, and so many people have a hard time adjusting to real life afterward, and re-live it through their "war stories", I find myself still referring to my military days too. I had nothing but good experiences when I was in, and hated to retire, but you can't stay forever, plus you want to settle down eventually, but I got to travel the world, and really experience other cultures, ate some great food, saw some great places, met some great people. It was a wonderful life, and it took years to figure out where I was going when it was over, I think I'm still trying to figure it out.

I agree with all you said about the mentoring, and while I think it would benefit people, I think it would take a lot to make it work, and Kyle & Carson have enough on their plate helping people now, of course that might alleviate some of their work too. I don't really see it happening though, but you never know. I might look into the military side of things though if I do decide to stay. They say once you get it here at WA, you can repeat it until it's easy, so maybe it would benefit me to stick it out and really learn it. I never even finished the training, so maybe I'll do that before I call it quits.

Anyway, it was great talking to you, and I hope to tell you something positive after the first of the year, you'll probably be way ahead of my by then. Right now I have to get away from the computer for awhile and get some stuff done. Again, good luck..

I'm stuck on the niche (I have several ideas but am not sure if they will be money earners. I have to get over the 'perfectionist' attitude. . . ). I'll check out affiliate bootcamp and probably start there. I've been doing this for too long, spending too much money, all with very, very low return.
Looking forward to making this work!

Well you are in the right place, we will get you turned around. The bootcamp is definitely a good place to get rolling and I do recommend if you can't come up with a niche, you start there. This training will teach you the skills you need not only to promote WA and within the make money niche, but going forward you will be able to apply these same skills to any niche.

It is great to have you here at WA! :)
