I am new to internet marketing, however I do already own one website selling Cruelty Free Cosmetics; my website is linked to eBay and Facebook and I sell my products there mainly. However, the last few months have been a massive learning curve for me and I am feeling quite overwhelmed. I also want to branch out and create multiple income streams. I sometimes think I'm being overly ambitious, lol. Whatever I do though, I certainly need help as it's all getting a bit complex and much of it is completely new to me.
I am a 55 year-old grandmother of 6, and I live with one of my daughters and her family. I have a perfect canine companion, Jess, and I am disabled. I have a degree in Creative Writing and English Language and have been studying an MA in Creative Writing - I have just completed my PgDip Degree, and after all that I realised that in today's market, it is unlikely that I will find work (who wants an aging, disabled employee?).
Before suffering the stroke that left me disabled, I spent 20 years or so in the Entertainment Industry. My main role was as a professional acting coach and casting director; although I have also acted, directed, written plays and screenplays, and produced plays. I live in the Midlands in the UK.
Anyway, with things in the UK as they stand currently, even the disability benefits are being eroded. I want to work, I need something to occupy me, if nothing else, but finishing my MA has become difficult with University Fees going up so I also needed to raise funds. In the end, I decided that I needed to create my own work and generate my own income. With my limitations, I decided the best way would be to work online as I could work how I like, when I like (or when I can), and during whatever hours I choose.
So far, I am enjoying my journey, despite it being quite a confusing minefield, and despite all the mistakes I have already made; and looking forward to learning how to make the journey a little bit easier.
