About CDukes
Joined July 2015
My name is Christene and I'm am from the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. I have been blessed to have found the Wealthy Affiliate Community, (thanks to my bestie Angela) as I have been looking towards working on-line for about three years, only to have been led without support and nurturing. This has resulted in feelings of failure and dismay in that I may never reach my goals. Now with the Wealthy Affiliate I see light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel.
I have been looking to the on-line world as a means of bringing additional income into my family, with the goal of my business becoming the sole provider. With the economy the way it is worldwide the "JOB" is no longer a secure option and I certainly don't want to leave it up to the Government to support my family.
I also have a desire to support those less fortunate than me and support the many great charities that do an amazing job in their respective areas.
I look forward to connecting with the Wealthy Affiliate Community to learn and look forward to giving back as well.

2017 Update - My Journey So Far.......

Have now been a member here for the last two years and would love to say have a full time income, but alas, have not been as consistent as I should have been here at WA. I have now made a commitment to myself that I will have a website starting to earn some income by the end of 2017. There has been a lot of change in my life since starting here at WA, my family have moved halfway across the country to beautiful Darwin in the Northern Territory, where we have now settled in the short term. An e-commerce store purchase in partnership with my husband, study and a prospect of a new job, until my online ventures replace that income. Bring it on! WA here I come consistent and achieving!!
Will keep you all updated!

Hi Christene

Thanks for the follow back!

Wishing you a successful journey here in WA! I am going on 2 years also, is hard with working at a full time job and trying to stay on task.

Time seems to be moving fast!

I do genealogy so was wondering if you may have any Manx (Isle of Man) or Cornish roots in your blood! Have distant cousins from those areas which settled in Australia.

Have a great week!

Hi Christene,

Watch out for some bad apples at WA at the moment
Here's an article that has put all of them in the one place. We've had a couple of scammers, referral stealers and guys who hit on women just in the past 24 hours. They will be dealt with but wanted to warn you. Ange x

Hi CDukes, thanks for the follow, I am delighted to hear that you want to be able to support many great charities. Two of my daughter's and myself have a project planned that we will be starting next year for a FULL year... We will be raising money for a whole year by doing things such as selling plates, baked goods, candy bags and such each and every month saving the money all the while and at the end of the year on Christmas instead of spend it at home,we plan to give out a nice warm plate with hot cocoa and a fleece blanket for the less fortunate that are homeless, and help the families who can't afford gifts for their children and loved ones by either getting gifts for them or giving out some gift cards. We're very excited on starting out on our one year project next mo, it's the start of a new journey for us (along with starting out here with WA) Anyway, sorry I went rambling on, lol, it's just good to hear there are other good warm hearted people out there. But again, thanks for the follow, nice to meet you and will be following you back.

Hi Analisa,
Thank you for your message and I think you have an amazing idea to help those less fortunate. It is lovely to know that there are such caring and compassionate people out there willing to help those in need. Maybe I can bounce some ideas off you. I recently have found out one of the mum's of my daughter's school friend really struggle week to week, just to put food on the table. This breaks my heart. I would love to help in some way, even if it means teaching some skills to build her own business. Any way now I am rambling...lol. Welcome to WA and I look forward to seeing your success unfold here.

Hi my bestie, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm feeling pretty excited about this next part of the journey, and I'm glad we can share in it together. I hear you about the lack of support and nurturing we have experienced over the past few years. Now we can put all the hard work we have gone through into place and go for it here at WA. Here's to a brand new future, where our hopes and dreams do come true.

So wonderful to have you here at WA. Gotta love Aussies, I was there a few years back for just over a month and absolutely loved it (Sydney, Gold Coast, Airlie Beach). Beautiful place, beautiful people.
