About Cass51
Joined September 2018
Hi my name is Cassandra (cass51) and I am an artist from New Zealand. I am the founder of a small business called the Treasure Basket where I enjoy creating teaching resources from natural and recycled materials for preschoolers. I am also an early childhood educator and work in a total immersion centre (we speak Maori only). I live near the beach with my amazing husband and two large dogs. I am a mother of three and grandmother to six beautiful grandchildren. I have joined Wealthy Affiliate to grow my business and am really excited to start my new journey.

Hi Cass
Thank you for following me back.
I love New Zealand & visited a few years ago from Sydney.
We were mainly in the south island & due to time constraints did not explore the north island, where I presume you live.
I am a bit far away to visit NZ from Bangkok, however I do have several friends living here from NZ.

Wishing you great success here @ WA

Hi Denis Yes I live in Whanganui North Island, and am currently visiting my daughter in Nelson, South Island.
Thanks I am missing those soppy beasts at the moment while I am on holiday.

Hello there Cass!
Thank you for the follow, I am doing the same in return. New Zealand! One of my biggest dreams in life is to move to New Zealand. I've studied it for years, and I remember the first time I saw a single photo of the place, I instantly fell in love with it. I also see that you are an artist, that's awesome. I love meeting other artists, musicians, pretty much creative people in general. :) Best wishes to your future my friend.

Thanks again!

Hi Cassandra and thanks for the follow, we are following you back. What a great bio. Maori, wow, that's definitely a first for us. We know several New Zealanders, including here in Ecuador, where we are now living, but none of them speak Maori.
We hope all is going well with your WA journey and we wish you every success for the future.

Hi Cassandra.

Thank you for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

As you've already probably discovered, WA is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

What a fantastic place to be an artist! Two countries I wanted to live, other than the one I was born; Canada and New Zealand. I've visited Canada twice, but I've never visited New Zealand. I have a few neighbours where I live, who are Kiwis. The stories they relate to me about 'home', tells me that one day I will visit.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hi Paul thank you for such a lovely and encouraging welcome. I understand exactly what you are saying. I have been here almost two months now and have completed the level 5 training, have some traffic coming through my site and my rank is 243 currently. I look at some form of training everyday to increase my knowledge and often return to things I struggle with. I am happy to be here and for the wonderful network available to tap into for extra help. Thanks for having me in your network. /cheers Cass

Hello Cassandra from the land of the long white cloud and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day
Robert.

No probs Cassandra and when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

The Gunns originally came from the Shetland and Orkney Islands as did my paternal great grandparents.

Your ancestors then settled in the North East of Scotland and mine further down the east coast.

It really is a small world.

Well Hi there Cass, Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I am sure you will enjoy your journey here with us. There is much to learn however the education and training on this program is second to none. There is also a webinar on a Friday night (canadian time) - I get it here in Adelaide at 10.30am on a Saturday morning. Depending on daylight saving you are normally about 3 hours ahead of us but I think you would love the questions and answer that come in from people on the webinar. There are people from all over the world on there and our official trainer - Jay Neill - Rank 3, does a really great job explaining everything in plain English. If there is anything I can do to help please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to assist
you wherever and whenever I can

Hi Cassandra,

Welcome to WA, NZ will be my next trip sometime in 2019 or early 2020. I have seen many videos and dying to visit soon. I will plan to live there in the South Island once I retired. I have never been there, but my in-laws are all there. My mother in-law sent a book called "Glorious New Zealand" as one of my wedding gifts. It is absolutely beautiful.

Welcome again.

All the best,
Ana

Dear Kassandra, Thank you for your kind words. I can tell you that I've saved to publish a lot of spring and video images in 20 seconds. That cycle I called 'My First Student Love'. Each image (or video) is set to the power point slide. In addition, each slide has a short 4-string song. The song (pronounced by my voice) and the image (or video) make the whole (composition) on the slides. All slides, like a movie view, are automatically lowered one by one and make up the thematic whole. In this case the theme is: my first student love. This my poetry work I have announced in my first blog.
Best regards, Vitas Boško

Hi, Cass51
I saw a post where you said you just took your first course. I have not been back to WA for quite some time so I’m not very familiar with the courses.
Was that a website building course? I’m trying to get some ideas for the content of my site. I would appreciate any advice you might have.
Thanks
Reply
Cass51 Premium
Hi John yes it does include part of the Web building process and well worth wading through. I think if you just go step by step and give yourself time to process you will be fine. I even went back over some of it a few times just to try to help myself retain the Information. Nice to meet you too.

I am sure you will find something important to you John and wish you the best. You are very welcome.

Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.

Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask

Congratulations on going premium Cass!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

Hi there!!! Welcome to WA Premium. You won’t regret this decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you.
There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!
