About Cathy Ling
Joined January 2014
Hi, Cathy here and I've been with Wealthy Affiliate since January 2014.

I work in the health service industry and have seen my fair share of dilemma intertwining with health issues, human behaviors and most importantly, money problems.

After years of searching for a solution to these problems, I found that the only way to achieve life-style balance and happiness is through using the (limited) time that we have in our lives, to do things that we love.

Somehow, that realization led me to Wealthy Affiliate and that kick-started my journey towards achieving time freedom. I am happy to be part of this growing community and learning from all of you :)

Hi, I’m Nilu, totally new to the program and concept, have to follow everything and as I’m working full time I will be slower than others.
Don’t even know if in my case affiliate marketing will be a good idea.
Actually I want to show my visual work earning money out of it so I can quit 9-5 job.
Advertising for others with my illustrations is kind of a thing in my mind. Any advice?


Thanks a lot,
Nilu

Thank you Cathy for your information. I am looking for freedom from my job. I am a bit older and would like to have financial freedom so that my husband and I don't have to work so hard physically.
I have had this in mind for about a year. So 2019 is going to be my break through year.

Hello Cathy,
someone told me that you have a website dedicated to art. I was hoping you could give me some pointers :) I'm still trying to figure out my niche. What do you think about drawing tables, tracing paper, thermal cutter, etc. is that a good idea?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Cathy. While researching our niche on the web, we came across your web site, Time Rich Worry Free. Very nicely done. You have a lot of information there but it is well organized and presented clearly and attractively. We are now following you and wish you continued success.

From Site Comments, I see that you are one the top Site Comments list. I have a question? I reviewed and post comments on several websites through WA Site Comments. After comments, I don't see anything happening and I don't get any credit. I would like to comment on others' sites so that I could get credits and invite others to review and comment on my site. I ask this several times, but seems no one point me to the right direction. I wish you could give me some hints on this. Please help.

sound like you are doing pretty we within wealthy affiliate. I congratulate on doing a super good job to achieve the freedom you desire. Maybe sometime in the near future we could collaborate ideas from one another to help us both realize our goals. At this current state in my life I do not have my wife's support, and I want sooo bad to prove her wrong and that this is a legit business and that I can make a great deal of money if I stick with it lol.
Thanks for your time and look forward to work with you in the future!

Hi Cathy. Thank you so much for your very informative website here. I enjoyed it thoroughly and in fact have learned several(s) new concepts and ways to obtain old ideas. The content of your writing is clear and most concise. I like your graphs and your style. You have put a lot of work into this and that is evident.

I don't think I can critique it at all and that may be because of my newness in WA but I will say this that as a newby my comment would be excellent. And that should mean something when you can make someone new "understand".

I am working on a website also the niche of which is "Pianos". There seems to be limited blogging material or that's what I thought until I read your blog on keyword search. Now, mind you I have studied keyword search in the past but your way of putting it to me was more challenging and clear.

Personally, I like the layout of the first page. I like the idea right off the bat having all the articles in shortened versions right there. I might as well just stop writing because as I said I can not critique this site because I like it too much. Good for you, Duane.

Kind of odd but a few minutes ago I read your website and commented on it but could not follow through without a Gravitar. That stopped the proper process for me but I did manage to copy and paste what I wrote about it here....I hope that explains things for you, Duane.

Hi there Duanne. Thank you for checking out my blog. Don't worry about not being able to leave any comments. If you feel you learned something out of it, the purpose is served.

I was once a newbie too and know nothing about WordPress, much less, my niche. But just stick with your passion (or your goals rather) and you'll start to pick up things from the community here.

Great to have you on board. If you need any help moving forward, just send me a PM.

Cheers.

Cathy, your profile picture has become so familiar to me I didn't realise I wasn't following you! I was going to respond to your birthday on FB and came here to find out what country you were in so my birthday message to you would be on the appropriate day. I tend to get it wrong because I am in Australia and we are ahead of the other side of the world!

Now I will rectify this and keep in touch formally.

Danielle, I understand your situation, but it takes time to build an online business in order to earn a sustainable income. Wealthy Affiliate is not a place for you to earn quick cash. Please follow the training as laid out and I can assist you in that area

Hello Cathy, I believe I have seen you before, anyway ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Cathy, having gone to your website and seen what a great job you,ve done I am ready to quit. I have just seen firsthand how little I know and how much I have to learn before I can earn, its scary and I dont have the money for monthly fees. Well done.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

hello. I would like to add your blog to my website for others to view and wanted your permission first. and I would also like to comment on your website. I am new to this and do not k
fully know hoe to do so yet. can you give me pointers in this area?

Hi there Sky,

I don't mind you putting up my website for others to view, but if you are just starting out, I don't recommend that you do this as you'll be leading your readers to my site which is a disadvantage to you.

Concentrate on building your content and internal links first.

Hope that helps.

Okay. But I don't mind. I think my content will keep them reading both of our sites. I am very confident in my writings and what I am teaching to others...so I think your blog or site will be a plus for me and you

Hi Brydee - I almost call you Birdie there :P
I am stuck between Lesson 4-6 right now because the video wouldn't play on this computer that I am using. I am halfway thru my keywords search and trying to "interpret" what I am seeing into something logical in my not-very-tech-savy brain. I will be happy to share my niche findings once it's ready for debut :)
