About ChristineDu1
Joined March 2019
Hi, my name is Christine. I am from Belgium, and I live in the Baja, Mexico. I have been at Wealthy Affiliate since March 2019 and I love the community and am grateful for everything that I have learned. I am excited about this journey I have begun. I am leaving my previous profile description here, just to see how I started, where I am now, and where I will be soon :-)

March 2019: For years I have been working as a teacher, and now I am building my house, but it is hard to make ends meet ... Right now I cannot continue building my house, I can't pay the workers or buy any more building material. There has to be more to life than just getting by and living from paycheck to paycheck. I don't want to do this anymore, working for others, budgeting every week ... I'd like to enjoy life more without having to worry about money.
I am also a published author, but I have been having a hard time getting noticed. I heard a lot about affiliate marketing, and I hope to learn plenty from the courses here :-)

Update, 7 July 2019: I'm in my third month now and I have learned so much here on WA and I have become part of a wonderful, supportive community. My website is growing and even my second website which I haven't developed much (because I am focusing on the first one) is growing. I now also have a second employment in a store and I teach in junior high school only three days a week. So, my stress level has lowered considerably, and the work at the store is a nice break from education, keeping everything nicely balanced. Furthermore, I also have more time now to work on my websites and be active on WA.

Update, 6 August 2019
Today, I finally resumed building my kitchen, which is the first room of my house. It's finally coming together, step by step. First, the kitchen, then solar energy, then the rest of the house. And keep on building my websites too :-)

Update, 21 August 2019
I found new work today :-) so, now I'm going to juggle three part time jobs, junior high teacher, clothing store clerk, and German language teacher in a language school. I'm not stressed about it, I think they'll remain well balanced, allow me time to work on my websites, and I do not need to stress over having to meet certain payments while I work on my financially independent future ;-)
WA rocks, I'm happy to be part of the community! :-)

Update, 3 February 2020
I quit one of my three jobs. German classes are increasing, so I left the store. I'm glad I did, because I was gone 12 hours a day at least 4 days a week. I'm enjoying more freedom now, and I'm adjusting to dedicating more time to WA :-)

Hi Christine!

Thank you for the follow, and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Finishing your house is a strong motivation, and I know that you can get there. With that strong of a motivation, I think there can be a strong tendency to try to consume all the material as quickly as possible to try to make progress, but I would say just follow the training and make sure that you practice what you learn! That's where you really start to learn the principles and make progress.

Here's to your success!
Nick

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
Cheers

I am really enjoying the training and I am eager to learn more. It's just a little difficult to organize my time, because I am a school teacher and right now we are having exams and busier than usual ... I also live on my land with no electricity, have been living like this since July 2017 when I moved there. So, it is a little hard to use electronics without electricity. I hope to install solar power when the money starts rolling in :-) So, now I watch the training videos in school, after work, or during weekends in an internet cafe. I just have to make this work somehow :-) My goal is to have solar installed before the summer.
