About Carbli
Joined August 2014
Hi. My name is Lori and I live in Michigan. I just semi-retired as a one woman real estate broker. After 17 years in real estate and after much deliberation I decided to move my office home and spend the summer enjoying my pool, pictured here, and my two grandchildren. Immediately, I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. However, I'm not completely ready to sit back and do nothing. I am looking forward to working on a new adventure!

I love mixed Golden Retrievers, traveling, painting with watercolors and acrylics, sewing, quilting, kayaking, biking, gardening and of course, swimming. I also learned how to can recently and have made strawberry preserves and banana peppers. I think of myself as a Jack of all trades, master of none . . . . but I sure have fun. (Hey, It sounds like it could be lyrics to a song!) Although, my preserves are very good! (We grew the strawberries but my neighbor gave me the peppers.)

I am married and we have a handsome and playful Golden Retriever/Black Lab mix who we found on Craigslist. How lucky we were to find such a treasure of a dog. He is the best!

That's all for now but I'm looking forward to learning a lot from all of you so "thank you" in advance.

Hi, Lori!

It's a pleasure to meet you. Labs are the best. I have a black lab or he has me. Have you met WA member Labman?

Thanks for the follow. I followed you back.

All the best,
Gary

Yes, I know Labman, although I've not been in the community for a while. Looking to get more involved again now that my first book is under way. Working on the second! All the best to you. Yes, all of my dogs have "had me" too!

Hello Everyone,

I joined WA in 2014 and started my blog and training. But I soon found myself turning one of my blogs into a children's book. I left my blogging and worked on my book, which is now in publication! I kept my subscription and used my training to create my author website. I even created my own book trailer! Yes, my site still needs work, but I thought I would share my success with you. Remember, if something's not working for you, look outside of the box. Bearisadog.com

Lori, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Lori.

Yes, moving along, but slowly. I get stuck on every step because I'm too much of a thinker. Finally came up with my 3 themes. It took me a while because I couldn't really figure out what the theme of my website is, thewinninglotteryticket.com. Finally, I just decided the theme is "how you can make money since you're not going to win the lottery. The 3 theme pages I decided on are building a website, work from home and keeping a mindset. Still tossing the keywords page around though. However, once I got on a roll to come up with 10 topics and using the alphabet soup, I came up with about 15 for each. Will start on my pages tomorrow.

Hi David and thank you. I follow you back. My single step is a very slow step. After a month I feel I am not getting anywhere. I am a "show me" person so sitting here reading and watching videos is dragging me down. I'm not ready to give up yet but I sure wish I could feel a bit better about this whole process.

Actually, I started to create my website and I am not finding it as easy as you say it is. I have no idea what I'm doing trying to build this website. Also, I have a question regarding future payments. I have a real estate company set up as an S Corp. My attorney said I can set up a DBA and put all commissions and expenses thru my real estate company. Should I create just one name, or should I create a new company name each time I create a niche. Will this name be on the website(s)? Thank you. I will be joining the premium but want to see how easy the website is to create. As I said I have no idea what I'm doing.

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Today is your starting point of your journey to expertise and success within the online world!

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Lori! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

RE: niches and companies, you actually don't even need a company to operate in a niche and if you have a company, you will definitely only need one. You are just fine Lori and cross the account bridge when you get there, but you can definitely run all income through a singular corp.

Hi Lori,
Just last year I looked at a WordPress site completely baffled! Now a year on, not only can I get a website up in minutes I actually swapped services and paid for a new window I had fitted in my house by building a website for the man who fitted the window!
It's such a great feeling to learn how the pieces all fit together and create something from nothing!
Not only is WA all you need to build a successful online business (I speak from experiencing other training platforms) you will find a lot of help and support here, just bring your desire! :)
I have written a blog post about the stages of competence regarding learning something new. You may this helpful and can find it on my blog profile. All the best to you and thanks for the follow back :)

Awesome Janice, I will check it out. It is so wonderful to hear about your progress and the fact that you are becoming so knowledgeable at this really proves that you are working at it and continuing to learn each and every day (something that I have been doing for the last 12 years).

It is pretty awesome isn't it!

Hey Lori,

I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing? Have you had a chance to get started with the training?

When I first started here at Wealthy Affiliate I had a bunch of questions in the first few days and need quite a bit of help as I had zero experience coming in :)

If you have any questions I will be more than happy to help out, just reply to this message and I'll do my best to lend a hand.

Cheers,

Mike

Hi Lori, Mike here from avoidonlinemarketingscams.com,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! You are going to be up and running with an online business before you know it and I will personally be more than happy to help out if you have questions as you get started.

I suggest getting starting with the Online Entrepreneur level1 getting started course found in the main menu by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button.

Here's the link to lesson 1:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling

This is the course that I started with and lead me to my first sale online!

If you are willing to put in an honest effort and take the bull by the horns I will personally help you through the course or with any questions or concerns you may have in your quest to make your online business a reality.

I can be reached through my personal profile when you have any questions...trust me, you will!

Oh!

Don't forget to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself! You'll get way more help and support form others here within the community if you have an image and description!

Just a quick heads up! You can stay on as a Starter member as long as you like, there is absolutely no pressure to change your status, but if you decide to become a Premium member and do so within 7 days you will qualify for a 50% discount on the first month.

I look forward to getting to know you and being able to help out when you have questions.

Cheers, Mike

Thank you for the welcome. My one concern is that I like to do a lot of things but none of them are really a passion and I am not an expert in any of them.
Reply
MikeLambert Premium
Hi Lori, I understand the passion part and wondering what you will end up doing. I started Internet marketing almost by fluke, I never intended to do this for a living but once I got involved here at WA I really found it interesting. I talk to people from all over the world on a daily basis which I never thought would be something I would do.
Give WA a go and who knows where it will lead you, may be the one thing that changes your life or just another one of lifes experiences, either way you come out ahead. Good luck, Mike.
