About CatAdam
Joined October 2017
I have been retired for the last 17 years due to health issues, but previous to that I was the Executive Director of the Etobicoke Chamber of Commerce, the Managing Partner of the Facility Management Group and prior to that, I had my own company, Adam Enterprises. As the Executive Director, I ran the Chamber of Commerce, reporting to the Board, providing administration, finances, meeting planning and membership services.
The Facility Management Group was a consulting firm offering outsourced facility management services such as project and relocation management, needs analysis, strategic planning and benchmarking. Involved from the inception of the company I was responsible for the day to day business operations, in addition to client projects. I have written business and marketing plans, brochures and reports. For clients, I have coordinated, prepared detailed schedules and documentation and managed phased office reconfigurations/relocations involving up to 1,500 employees in total. These projects involved supervising the team dealing with design, construction, electrical/mechanical, communication, furniture systems, building operations and relocation management. I have prepared financial models and analysis to support an in-depth study of long-term office facilities.
Adam Enterprises provided association management services for such professional associations as the International Facility Management Association, the Canadian office and the Toronto chapter, NACORE, the Ontario Association of Hospitality Accountants and others. I developed educational programs and provided meeting planning services for the Annual General Meeting of the International Association of Hospitality Accountants, for 1,500 attendees. I also provided various consulting services including accounting, public relations, computer training and course curriculum development for a number of clients including Laventhol and Horwath, Labatts Ontario Breweries, the Toronto Star and Exegetics.
I am very self-motivated and used to working from home with no supervision. I have an in-depth familiarity with Canadian social culture and media and web culture.

Hey Catherine,
You left a comment on my profile so I just had to read your bio and thought, hey this is someone I need to follow. Hope you don't mind. We started about the same time, you probably joined a little before me, but we're at about the same place in the training. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you luck and offer my help if you need it. Although after reading your bio, I'll probably be the one needing the help. You know what they say about old dogs, new tricks, that's me. Good luck and I'll see you at the top.

Hello Catherine,

Sounds like you have been a busy bee in previous years, BUT HEY, nothing is going to change because it is non-stop learning here in WA. You could work all day and night if you wanted to but you do have to step back and rest sometimes.Take a break and recoup!!!

I thank you for following me and I wish you the best in all aspects of life.

Lovely to meet you and CHEERS,

Hello CatAdam

Nice to connect with you on this awesome WA community platform. What an awesome curriculum Vitae you have seems like you're type of person who knows what she wants and will achieve any goals you ste for yourself . Which obviously is needed when you want to grow your business. But sorry to hear about your health problems, hope those issues will get resolved after all although it sounds like a cliche but nothing is more important than your health. Wishing you the best, have a great Sunday.

Stay well and have a great day.

Thank you Cat for the follow. Not sure why you are following me. I will certainly follow you my friend.

So you're a cat lover? It is my guess. I got a question if you know about cats. Why is my female cat crapping all over my living room rug. They (I have 2 cats) have separate liter boxes and they're mostly clean when we can get to it. It is a concern. Just wondering
if you might know. I asked my wife that we need a psychiatrist for our cat Tofu.

If you can help aside from this wonderful platform I would certainly appreciate it!

From warm and sunny hot Hawaii!

Cats usually make a mess when they're upset about something. She may be jealous of the attention the other cat receives, you may have changed their cat food, who knows. What have you changed recently? Is she sick? If she's peeing on the rug, she may have a bladder infection. You should have her checked out by a vet. Try giving her more attention,
Also once she's made a mess on the rug it now smells like her litter box. She'll keep making a mess there. So you have to get rid of it. If you can clean the area, use vinegar to clean it. The vinegar breaks down the enzymes in the mess.
Good luck with figuring it out.
CatAdam Premium
Also try putting baking soda on the area where the mess was, this can also take out the smell.
Again, best of luck.

Yes there were a number of things we asked our neighbor to cat sit while on a trip to a neighbor island for 6 days. She herself have cats. It couild be she walked in our home with her cat's smell over her feet, my guess.

We have switched from dry to wet food. Not sure if that is the link.
I think it might be.

Another is my wife noticed her pee seems small since we noticed the a small ball of litter.

You are maybe right about her bladder infection thought. My wife and I will check into that...thanks CatAdams.

Heck it may appear to be anything. But thanks for the help.

Thanks for being there!


We will do the baking soda and vinegar thingie. Much appreciated
for your suggestions.
VanceHunter Premium
Sounds like you've received answers that are possible reasons why Tofu is going on the rug.

There are sprays that might make the rug, where she's pooing, undesirable.
I had a male cat that had crystals form in his urethra, that blocked his urine. His urine was too acid or alkaline.. I forget which, but he received medicine that helped balance his ph, and relieved that condition.
My male cat bullied his sister into not using the litter box, and then she chronically urinated elsewhere. I ended up allowing them both to live outside also.
Has any routine changed a lot? Cats can be so sensitive to change.
Did you ask the vet yet for advice?
1signbanner Premium
Thanks Vance. Not sure my wife want to kick them out of the house. See when my daughter got married her focus are on the 2 cats as son and daughter.

Not gonna happen. Thanks for your personal experience, much appreciated. I think Tofu was traumatized when Mom ( my wife ) visited her Mom on Lanai (neighbor island) that might be the reason, I guess.

Mahalo Vance again! Btw, I will follow you!

VanceHunter Premium
It's easy to imagine Tofu being rattled by your wife being away to Lanai. A trauma indeed for a cat. They're so sensitive. And they're so unique.
As for my cats, they really wanted to go outside. We weren't kicking them out. For us, it was an effective solution.

I hope you figure out how to get your cats using their litter boxes again.
1signbanner Premium
Thanks Vance. I think that's what it is. She being away from home so long Tofu maybe affected. I will tell my wife what you said.

Ohh btw Vance Happy Thanksgiving my friend!
Take care and be safe over the holidays!

Hello Catherine and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Catherine,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

You're so welcome(:

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
CatAdam Premium
I'm going to try out the proofreading/editing niche with a focus on book proofreading if I can.
CatAdam Premium
I've also thought of another niche, open marriage. What do you think. of that idea?
Kyle Premium
Sue, anything can be a niche.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Any tips on choosing a theme?. I'm not sure what I should be looking for in a theme. Just that it looks good or something more?

Hey Catherine,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You’re in the right place here.

Just follow the training to a ’T’ and do as you’re instructed to do.

And in no time your online business will be up and running.

Ask for help.

I see you're already using the Live Chat and started with the Getting Started Training. So good going with that.

You'd find that the community here is so awesome.

People are really friendly and supportive.

Reach out to me if you ever need a hand.

All the best and good luck.
