Hi There
My name is Carla and I am 44 years old.
Although I am English I have been living in Spain for the last 10 years.

I have been self employed for around 20 years now and most of this time has been trading within the greeting card,gift and confectionery industry.
First on a retail basis in the UK then within distribution.
In December 2015 I made a huge decision and sold my business and the reason for this was to spend some more quality time with my family,especially my daughter who moved back to the Uk to study.
Many people thought I was a little crazy in selling a successful business but I truly believe things happen for a reason.

"Life is not all about working all the hours that you can and hardly having any quality time with your family. Life for me now is about creating memories with the people I love and if I can earn a decent living while doing so then Happy Happy Days.....Thats my motto :) "

After having the first summer in 10 years off doing anything I have wanted with whom I wanted i can honestly say its been wonderful.The best summer ever creating memories.

But now is the time for me to get my business brain going again!

I am recently new to WA and am hoping to get going on things asap.
But what I must say what attracted me to WA was the fact that I can still be there for my other children too while I'm working hard!
So lets see what the future holds.........And good luck to each and every one of you :)

Hi Carla
Lovely to meet you here - I will be heading over to your social media pages shortly to connect there too.
One of my goals is to achieve geographical freedom and Spain is definitely on my radar, specifically Malaga - it looks like it has worked for you :-)
Wishing you every success
Blessings

Hi Carla

Good for you to make such decisions for your life. Things do happen for a reason. Sometimes you have I to go with your heart even though your head is saying something else.

I know of 2 musicians who gave up lucrative careers in business to follow music. I'm sure someone told them they were nuts.

I gave up a supervisor's job after 14 years of stress. I have followed an interesting path to get to WA, but I've never been sorry I left that job.

You will find as you go forward, things will appear by coincidence, you will meet the right people, seemingly by chance.

Good luck to you.

You're story - evolving ever still - is epic and a perfect example of why we entrepreneurs do what we do! Keep on keepin' on and we'll see you on the road less traveled. You are an inspiration to us whom still deal with those whom 'think we're nuts' for having given up on what we had knowing that have stock in what we've yet to give.
Willing to do today what most won't so I can do tomorrow what most can't!
Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

Hello Carla,♫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

Carla, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Carla.

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 couple of months ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost five months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Carla and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you will have found out that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

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! :)

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.
