About CoraMitchell
Joined April 2018
Hello, my name is Cora Mitchell, I was born in California and raised in Wichita Falls, TX from age 10! I'm a Registered Nurse for 30+ years and I love helping people. I'm married to a wonderful man, have (2) sons and (8) grandchildren. I'm looking to retire in about 1 year, my husband is already retired. I love to quilt and play Pickle Ball (my husband and I both love Pickle Ball). Our goal is to be able to use the internet as another source of income and travel, seeing the country and playing Pickle Ball in various cities throughout the U. S.
It's a pleasure to be on board and I look forward to working with everyone here at WA!

Hi Cora,
You are a rather beautiful person, nursing is such a service to others that us 'norms' have to bow down and say thanks.

What is Pickle Ball? it must be a physical sport, not a board game.
I am in Australia and have never heard of this.

I am so happy to have you follow me, I have followed you back.

Trust in your success here in WA if you can manage to follow the lessons you will "make it"

Cheers Jae ♥

Thanks for the follow back and your lovely compliments. You will have to YouTube PickleBall, there are several, it's a little like Tennis, different paddle/racket, different type ball, and smaller court, and different size net..
Check it out, it's lots of fun....

Wishing you success in your endeavors.

Thanks so much for the follow! My Mom really loves playing pickle ball. I haven't tried it yet. My son actually played it in gym one year and he said it's really fun. I have similar goals in a way. I want to travel around the country doing run races! That would be fun. (sort of. lol)

Hi Bill and Sue,
It's so nice to meet another nurse here @ WA, I think you're probably my 3rd nurse to meet here. Thanks for following me back.
This is such a great place to be...meet people from all over the world and share things you have in common, and to learn a whole new skill set which is fun, gives you another reason to get up in the morning, and earn some extra money!

Best wishes to you both!

Thank you so much for the follow back! I'm so excited about being a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I have learned so much here. It hasn't been that long ago, I was so intimidated by the computer I could barely turn it on.

But that has changed drastically and I'm so thankful for all the training provided here @ WA!

Thank you for you offer of help, I will remember it when I get stumped.

Here's to success!

I understand that PC intimidation thing for certain, just remember although Everyone had to start somewhere and we are all on a journey..

Also the PC is just a tool like anything else, so embrace the trainings from the people who are further up the path of there journey and slowly but surely you will master this tool as well.

You have this for certain

Aloha Cora! Thank you for the return follow. I've never played pickle ball and not sure if it's a card game or an actual sport. LOL!

May you join those of us who are Completely Unemployable Soon!

I too was born and raised in California and Hawaii, yet not Texas. Plenty of Californians are vacating to Texas and other states.

I'm honored and grateful to have found WA and you!

Thank you! Pickle Ball is a mix between tennis and ping pong? sort of?
Search for it on YouTube there are plenty of videos to show you how it's played. It's a lot of fun and the fastest growing sport in the U.S.

So nice to meet you here at WA!

Cora thanks for the follow ditto !!!
I like nurses they have a good mindset helping people it takes a certain kind of person to be a good nurse and you must be one after that many years !
Also a friend of mine who recently retired a few years ago invited me to play pickle ball but I guess I should not have beat him so bad he never called me to play again ha ha !
It's good exercise playing pickle ball my lawyer who retired recently plays often , have to stay in shape!
All the best Cora !!!

Thank you for the follow, Cora...I did my AirForce tech school in Wichita Falls in 1980 right after the tornado hit there. Someone I met at church there took me to their house and showed me where they were and what was left of it. They crawled into the bathtub which was an interior room, and only that room and one other still had walls left around it... The destruction was unbelievable!
Anyway, I see you have a jumpstart on me... I hope you will reach your goals and can retire and play pickleball!

Welcome Cora,
Here you are embarking upon the journey I envision as a bit of freedom to pursuing a more robust retirement.

My hope is you'll find much success, for as a kindred spirit of travel and culture, I highly suggest discovering the world as truly an amazing adventure.

Pickle Ball is something I'm finding not played up in Northern Mn. but it certainly appears that a lot of people are having a blast doing it...ahhh, but quilting, there is something for the soul of Northern people.

Any way Great to have you on the path and I look forward to reading more of your thoughts and insights from the posts here at WA

Hey Cora,
Thank you for your service in nursing! My wife and I use to own a DME (durable medical equipment) company and know the challenges you face in serving others. She is presently enrolled in a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach program. Holistic care saved her life 4 years ago and she has wanted to help heal people since she was 6 years old so we are almost to her dream goal. Thank you for the follow, I have followed you back.

Thanks for all your kind words an respect. I appreciate it. I have a page on my website about Pickle Ball if you're interested. It's one of the fastest growing sports in America, it was started in the Oregan/Washington area a few years ago and it's especially great for seniors.....not as much running as tennis, similar to tennis but the court is smaller, paddles bigger than ping pong and you use a wiffle ball.

Hello Cora ... thank you for the follow. I had never heard of pickleball until it became quite a controversy at our local retirement community here in the wine country. I've played lots of tennis and golf, and while I still play golf I gave up tennis because of sore knees.

Oakmont has 2 great golf courses and 2 tennis complexes, and there is a growing group of folks campaigning for some pickleball courts. The objections seem to be mostly noise. I guess it's noisier than say regular tennis. Have you run into this issue on your pickleball travels?

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thank you for the follow back! I haven't ran into the noise issue, we mostly play indoors here in the Fort Worth, TX area, due to either heat, cold, or wind.

Hi, Ms. Mitchell.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for liking something that I said on another's account here The 'Community' interaction is actually quite important here.

I am very pleased to make your acquaintance.

Wichita Falls is a city in and the county seat of Wichita County, Texas, United States.

It is the principal city of the Wichita Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area, which encompasses all of Archer, Clay, and Wichita Counties.

According to the 2010 census, it had a population of 104,553, making it the 35th-most populous city in Texas.

In addition, its central business district is five miles (8 km) from Sheppard Air Force Base which is home to the Air Force's largest technical training wing and the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training (ENJJPT) program, the world's only multi-nationally manned and managed flying training program chartered to produce combat pilots for both USAF and NATO.

Holy smokes Cora.

Ontario is one of the 13 provinces and territories of Canada and is located in east-central Canada. It is Canada's most populous province accounting for 38.3 percent of the country's population, and is the second-largest province in total area.

Ontario is fourth-largest in total area when the territories of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are included. It is home to the nation's capital city, Ottawa, and the nation's most populous city, Toronto, which is also Ontario's provincial capital.

Ontario is sometimes conceptually divided into two regions, Northern Ontario and Southern Ontario. The great majority of Ontario's population and arable land is in the south. In contrast, the larger, northern part of Ontario is sparsely populated with cold winters and heavy forestation.

I have fantastic friends through this community not only in the South but also the North.

Hey. Liston...
I'm not sure why I'm writing so much but I really like your smile and the look of your glasses.

You are blessed,Cora, and we all know it here in our community.

Onward and upward my dearest.

Shine brilliant as in your smile always,Cora.

Peace, Love & Goodwill sent your way from Canada always.

Your host online,
Paul.

I'm just trying to get a message out through example that online success through 'blogging' for example is through 'blogging.'

The WAU blogging platform is an incredible tool to exercise our writing ability without actually being online.

Here, we can practice.

Instead of just saying 'thank you for following me', why not add a few more sentences saying why you are thankful for being followed?

I have more thoughts on this later if you like.

I, in return am extremely grateful and you can watch my growth over the next little while simply googling 'The Forensic Affiliate' from time to time.

The search will be convoluted with a JV/Click Bank product that has nothing to do with me. But that is my advantage if you know what I mean.

Also you can google "Starting a business online-the real deal" and you will eventually see me.

Those words are specific, but those are the words that I am working on to always be on page 1, top 3 without spending money.

How are you doing? Where are you at?

If I can assist, let me know.

We have another saying here in Canada being a 'Hockey' Country...

The Fun of Pickleball for Seniors

Once you’ve played it, the attraction of pickleball for seniors is clear. It's a fast paced, low-impact sport and anyone who's played a Racket sport like Ping pong, Tennis or Racket ball will quickly get the hang of it. Caution, it will be addicting. Because! the court is small doubles games are the usual. Players run a lot less than in Tennis or Racquetball and pickleball can be played year round inside or out.


Zero, Zero, Start!

When I first started at the local YMCA the players went easy on me. I was a beginner so I was encouraged to practice my serve. I was a tournament ping pong player in my early years so I knew a thing about Slices, back spin, top spin etc. The ground shots came easy for me and I quickly picked it up. The seasoned players however decided to show me a thing or two by playing at the net and either dinking it over the net into the kitchen or slamming a kill shot out of reach.
I picked up the sport quick but had to learn all about playing the net where your money shots really count. 80% of all winning shots are played at the net. The soft touch you must have takes time to master.


Level 2.0

As I became more proficient the higher level players repeatedly soft touched into the kitchen on my backhand side waiting for my mistakes or if I get the ball too high they would slam it over.


Level 3.0

As I became quicker and more competent I sought out facilities who had higher level players. In this way I would be forced to refine my game.
The End Game
Throughout my pickleball journey since starting a year ago, I've met and made many pickleball friends and most are very willing to take time to give you tips on improving your game. For me pickleball is the perfect exercise for my age and my aching joints. I play four or more times a week and cant get enough.


The Gifts

It’s a very active, dynamic sport. Bedside the low impact exercise it also has a strong social aspect since the doubles partner is standing close on the court.
If the game keeps growing especially for seniors thousands of tennis courts around the country could be used for pickleball. I even hear stories about people deciding where to retire based on the local pickleball scene.


Get In The Game

So, grab a paddle and a ball and a partner, call your local YMCA or community recreation center for a pickleball game near you and drop that shot in the kitchen and win that point. You will keep coming back for more.
My husband and I have experienced Pickleball players to be extremely nice, friendly, and helpful....... just a great community of people! We are looking forward to traveling in our RV, following Pickleball tournaments and camps across the United States. Hope to meet you someday on the court!


TRAVEL, PLAY PICKLEBALL, AND EARN MONEY!

So....are you nearing retirement age or already there? Do you want to be able to travel, play pickleball in various parts of the country, and earn money? Well, you can do all of it.... just by clicking the link below for more information.

Hello Cora and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hello Cora!

I hope you're finding Wealthy Affiliate a fun place to be as well as all the learning you are doing!

A lot of new members are really hung up about making money right away and wondering if this training really works so I have compiled this list of success stories I've seen through the time I've been here for you to see how much and how long it takes for someone to make money: Please keep in mind that everybody's circumstance is different but the most important thing to remember is that if you want to see results (money), you need to put in the work. The more you work on your online business, the more you will see the money come in.

This is also why it's important to upgrade to a Premium account so you can gain the full benefits of the entire platform.

See the complete comparison of Your Free account to a Premium account here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/a_aid/d6149715

You'll see all that you'll get when you upgrade to a Premium account in the following areas:
* Education
* Websites
* Hosting
* Site Content
* Community
* Support
* Success

Without Premium, you'll have a harder time making money, will take much longer, and you won't have the same support.

Anyway, think about it and your first month is super cheap at $19 which you really can't with everything that you get.

If you have any questions about picking a niche, please let me know and I can offer advice to you.

I'm here for you if you need me. Remember to have fun while you learn what you love to do, making money online! ;)

Talk soon,
Grace

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! :)

Welcome Cora to Wealthy Affiliate!!

Grace here from Work Anywhere Now blog and I'm so excited that you've decided to join! This is a great place to be if you want to learn how to make money online through affiliate marketing. You'll be learning so much here from the beginning to making your first $1 and then to achieving your dream goals!

I hope you know that this community is yours, meaning if you are ever stuck or have a question, all you have to do is ask for help. I, myself, will be at your service if you want to leave me a message on my profile, but if I'm not readily available you can use Live Chat, write a blog post, or use "Ask A Question" under the pen icon menu. You can also search your questions in the search bar on the top of this platform.

Have fun exploring around and I hope you will start one of the two courses soon. One is the green button, "Getting Started", which is the Online Entrepreneur Certification course, and is for people who wants to go into their own niche: The second course is the black button, "Affiliate Bootcamp", which is for those who wants to promote Wealthy Affiliate in the make money online niche. Whichever you decide to go with, the training is top notch and you'll find tasks at the end of each lesson to start building your website!

+++++++++++++++

2) Personal access to me with Private Messages, you'll be able to ask me anything directly and privately at anytime.

3) Access to The Diamond Traffic Program - learn how to get insane traffic to your website - organically = free!

I'll be here if you need help with anything! I hope all your online dreams will come true being in this wonderful space. A lot of them say, you can only quit, but you will not fail. I strongly believe this!

To much online success!
Grace
