About ColleenLVSJC
Joined June 2017
Hi! Thanks for stopping by my bio page. I'm from PA, but moved South to enjoy the warmer weather and stayed. The metro Atlanta area has been my home for quite some time now.

As a Social Entrepreneur, I am passionate about igniting hope, healing, and change so those less fortunate can rebuild their lives and maximize their potential. I have spent many years doing this type of work with the poor and homeless in Atlanta. A large portion of my work has been helping survivors of major traumas start to rebuild their lives so they can ultimately maximize their potential. Many of my clients have survived physical and sexual abuse, automobile accidents, traumatic brain injuries, etc., which typically bring PTSD and other trauma-related challenges.

As a Business Entrepreneur, I am passionate about igniting hope, healing, and change so individuals within companies maximize their potential, which then creates greater corporate success. My background is in healthcare, business management, and higher education, patient advocacy and case management. I am also a published author in healthcare and business.

Update: Sept 19, 2018

Time flies! It's been over a year since I joined WA and went Premium. Two choices that I have not one time regretted! When I arrived here, I was skeptical and wondering if WA really was as good as people said. Well...YES, it is! Having watched internet marketing experts over the years and wanting to start my own online business, I arrived here frustrated with the piecemeal approach offered by other companies. So WA was an instant breath of fresh air! And it remains so, over one year later since arriving. These guys are always reinvesting in WA, which is a good business practice. So if you're new and trying to decide whether to go Premium or whether this is for you. Go for it!!

I enjoy interacting with all the supportive people in this community, the great training offered, and sharing what I know to help others. I am grateful for all of the WA experts and members who have taken time to help me learn.

If I can ever be of help, please let me know. :)
Wishing you God's best!

Colleen,

"If you are referring to the person making incorrect statements about all he knew and didn't have a clue"

Sorry, I see what you mean. I was still a little ticked about the no-it-all that was telling everyone where to go, what to do, and get everything for free. And he never even tried this platform as he was not a Premium Member.

I stated in my Bio that I have a closed head injury and sometimes I would not make sense, and it will happen. My first truck accident in Feb 2014 broke my neck in 4 places, my next accident in Aug 2016 the Air Bag deployed and hit me in the head and knocked me unconscious. And I've had 16 rides in an Ambulance to ER for other Falls and head hits. The last one about 6.5 weeks ago when a tree branch about 35 feet in the air broke off and hit the ground and fell within inches of my deck and garage. It was hanging 35 feet in the air. I went out to check on it and I heard a crack and headed out but the branch broke into pieces and fell on me. Took 6 men to get the tree off me. So my head is getting a little mushy. I used to sit in this chair all day capturing 24,000 Radio Control Aircraft Plans. NOW I have a new mission. MAKE WA WORK FOR ME SO I CAN SHOW OTHERS! I do have a lifetime of experience. I just have to work around the soft spots in the head.
I'm still breathing so everything is OK! I just wanted you to know that I do have a serious closed head injury and I will screw up.
I like your posts and your information. I hope we can be friends.

Yes, I understand that you've had a head injury. That's why I said no problem. My goodness, it seems like you've had enough bad things happen. Now it's time for some good things in your life!

Sure we can be friends! I have spent many years working closely with and advocating for individuals who have survived traumatic brain injuries. So I understand TBIs better than the average person. Much of my work has been helping individuals with daily living skills so they can function more normally and have a better quality of life. I understand the brain hiccups that tbi survivors can have at any given moment.

I believe that every person is unique and has something valuable to offer the world. I'm glad that you found WA so you can do that! :)

Blessings,
Colleen

Colleen, please visit my site raybrannum.com and check out my CBD affiliate link. I am not trying to sell you CBD, I am trying to lead you to an affiliate position that will help you help others and earn you some Income. It is free to join, but like WA there are some options which I purchased. They are a really good and honest company much like WA.

You have found a wonderful group of good people here. I admire your goal of helping people.

I'm following you here and G+. I am interested in what you are doing. We have so much ability to help, but people living pay check to pay check cannot afford to get started.

I want to learn more about your business to help people rebuild their lives. I look forward to seeing you posts on how you are accomplishing your mission.

Thank you, Bill! I'm building out my website one step at a time, but have many years of experience face to face with clients who have been rebuilding their lives. Stay tuned! :)

I've found that many of my friends loose their identity when they retire. They don't know what to do with themselves. There has to be more to life than golf.

I look at trends in the workforce and try to help them find new interests. I want them to build a new career where they are not taking orders from a boss.

Of course, if they are looking for a job I'll help them brand themselves in a way that helps them find an interesting job that offers them growth potential

Thank you for your kind words, Suzanne! I need to update my bio a bit, but haven't taken the time to do that yet.

So glad you are in recovery from the physical stuff. Hope all is well now. We know that God uses everything to grow deeper spiritual roots.

Yes, moved back to Maine. My wife wanted to be closer to her family.
I lived in North Georgia for 32 years, loved it, but the Traffic was getting a little much.
Went to school in Bethlehem, PA and had 1 son born in Allentown.
Familiar with eastern PA and the Poconos.

I hope you have much success with WA as I have found it to be quite an educational experience, in the field of internet marketing,

I've lived in GA, NC, and PA, but I like metro Atlanta and Chapel Hill, NC best. I have relatives in Maine and have visited in the summer, but would not enjoy the mountains of snow the rest of the year! Maine has lots of great seafood though.

Glad you found WA. I'm sure we'll interact as we continue on this great WA journey. :)

Enjoy.

Hi Colleen,
Great to be connected and looking forward to learning more about you. I am still in PA and would like to get South soon. Great thing you are doing with the poor and homeless. I've written a post about PTSD in my StressCortisol site. It is really some nasty stuff.
Please reach out if I can ever help in any way !
Looking forward to following your success here !
Regards !

Good Morning Colleen,

That is a beautiful but also very difficult environment you are working in. Still, to be able to help people with trauma's and problems must also be rewarding.
On my health site, I have a page on Dr. Amen. Having a brain scan made can provide answers normal doctors cannot.
I always say this to the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, you can find unusual things there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

That is so true that his scans often reveal what traditional medical x-rays cannot. Too bad he's has such flack from the medical community for years. I've used some of his products and they get great results. I've also referred a lot of people to his website, books, tools, and supplements over the years. Glad to find someone else here who values his work too. :)

I'll be sure to check out your site and suggestions. Thank you!

Hello Colleen,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Work through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and take action on the tasks. Action leads to success (that and persistence). If you ever have any questions along the way or feel "stuck", there is lots of help. Just ask.
