About CBuley
Joined May 2016
I am 58 years old and disabled. I have COPD, Emphysema, and Fibromyalgia. My husband's name is Ron and he is a retired cowboy/ laborer. We have a 10 year old granddaughter who has been with us since she was 7 mos. old. Our only income is Social Security. I am looking to change that and tell them they can keep their pittance. I am unable to do what I used to do but I can still teach others what I know and I can do good research.
I was over half way to an Assoc. in Human Resources with a 3.975 GPA when I realized that I was still going to have to get a job and work 40+ hrs. a week and answer to someone else. Not what I wanted to do.
I don't want sympathy or charity. I want an online business that works if I'm willing to do my part, and I am. WA looks like the vehicle to do that and I've done my research; very well I believe. This is the platform I have chosen to jump from! All I ask for is the Lords blessing and some training in what steps to take next.
I have 3 sons who are 40, 42 and 32 and 5 beautiful grandchildren. I love animals and the outdoors. I spent 40 years as an Animal Behaviorist /dog trainer/ groomer/ wildlife rehaber so that may be my niche. My life motto has been "In a world where you can be anything ... be kind and loving!"
There is a plaque above my desk that says " A hundred years from now it won't matter what my bank account was, the kind of house I lived in or the kind of car I drove but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child."
If the younger generation that is going to take over this world someday sees what I can do and that they can do it too I will have given them a Golden Goose if they are willing to work for it.

Hello Cathy and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Lots of help here within WA for Newbies and for people who have some experience as well.
No sympathy from me Cathy and if you realize that Internet marketing is a steep learning curve, then lots of help from me.
And to that end I have published about 200 blogs within WA so have a browse and I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck, you ask ok.

I liked your response regarding a large bulletin board advertisement on Funkydunc208's blog. So I'm following you, now.
Reading your intro, I realized we have somethings in common. I'm 59 and the nanny for my grandchild, Gio, 5 months old.
I loved your comment about the importance one can have in the life of a child.
I am very new here, just 1 month, but will tell you that the sky's the limit. Not that I've achieved much, slowly absorbing everything. But everyone's very willing to help, guide, support and uplift you when you're ready to give up. I wish you the best and your niche choice sounds wonderful.

Thank you! Somebody said "If it runs through your head it comes right out of your mouth!" Sometimes it just happens like that with me. I'm trying to be very careful not to offend anyone. I sometimes do it by accident though. It truly was my first thought!
Followed you back. You've been here longer than me but I know in my heart this is where I'm supposed to be. Thank you for the kind words and may your garden always have flowers!

I thought I was going to promote a product (baby diaper changing pad) with a website through WA. I named my website changeababy.siterubix.com. Now I need to buy a domain and don't know if I want it to be giggysbabyassistance.com as has been suggested. My other passion is dog/ animal training, behavior, grooming, showing etc. and we are sustenance farmers. I don't want to have to have 2 or 3 different domains just starting out.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you,
CathyJo

Mike-Writes Premium
Let me ask you this, Cathy Jo.

Of your two passions which one do you think could sit and write articles about without getting burned out. It will require a lot of your attention.

Also, which one has the best affiliate opportunities?

Both of these have a huge impact on the niche you select.

Or to put it another way, which one will put a smile on your face and keep it there?

To me, the dog niche would be a huge one to tackle unless you really drilled down and selected a really targeted sub-niche. For example:

"Housebreaking English Bulldogs"

As for your baby product niche... you can add all kinds of other products and toys to the mix. As you go along you can add things a child will need or can use as they grow.

You have a lot of possibilities with either niche... but it all comes down to the one you/re most comfortable with.

If have more question please feel free to ask.

Hope this helps. :)

Hi CBuley I tried to send you a message thanking you for the warm welcome but it kept ending up further down the list. I have cerebral palsy- but I have a blessed life. Many stories to tell! Sounds like a great niche you picked for yourself. As you can see from my picture I am partial to them.

The dog in your picture looks like he's been around a while. Love the old faithful ones! My baby is 6.
You can do this thing and a work at home business is perfect for you. I'm happy to help. I'm addicted to WA and can't sleep for the ideas and questions running around in my head.
If I can help you in any way just send me a message. I try to watch for them pretty closely.

Thank you. I am sitting here in 2 pickles. #1 is I was getting some influence in Google as instructed in Lesson 8 and Found an affiliate website nearly identical to what I'm working on for mine... same product. Do I need to start over with another niche or proceed with mine and try to make it better. I don't think that is an option because his is good!
#2 I am ready to go Premium but I'm worried about next month's membership fee. There is a possibility that I just won't have it. How do I cancel if that becomes the case?

Thank you for all your help!
CathyJo

VitaliyG Premium
Hi Cathy, you will ALWAYS find competitive websites in your niche, in fact ALL niches. But WA teaches you to beat ANY site that you're up against.

You can cancel premium ANYTIME, but I very much recommend the 1 month discount while it's available :)

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! :)

Hey Cathy, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Cathy, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Cathy. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!
