About CourtneyV1
Joined April 2017
I've worked in childcare, retail, the food industry and sales. For the past decade I've worked in disability care and have loved (mostly) every minute of it! I've just recently bought a home and relocated, beginning a new chapter in my life, and I'd like my occupation to follow suit. I'm passionate about travel, photography, and humanitarian work (vastly volunteer based). Working from home would allow me to enjoy my life to the fullest! So tired of the scams!

Hello Courtney ... thank you for the follow. This is the best place you could possibly be to learn the skill needed to accomplish your goal to work from home.

Is it going to be easy? No! The learning curve is quite steep. Is it duable? Absolutely! Patience, perseverance, and stubborn dedication will get you to where you want to go.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Again You are on the right path here It may take a little while to get the kind of response you need however the only thing necessary is to just keep going. I've found in the past the research I do related to this particular field always gives me more information to share with others who are trying to do the same thing . We all follow different paths and hope to arive at a similar destination. So keep learning and sharing what you find. Thanks for the follow nice to have you in my network.

Hello Courtney and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Courtney,♫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

Welcome to WA! Not sure how long your journey has been to get here but I know mine was a long one. Trying many different avenues, sites and ploys to make some money. I've been here at WA for about a month and really do find it enjoyable and helpful with a great community and really good support.

The site I've built following the training is www.preparetoact.org
It's about women safety, products, blogs, etc.... Check it out if you like but understand I'm a novice at website building and it still needs a lot of work.

Any way, I will follow you here and do the same if you'd like to stay in touch and use me as a resource if you think it would be helpful to you.

Best of luck
Chris

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! :)

Haha I literally JUST chose my niche and built my website. I love to travel, so I thought backpacking gear? For traveling abroad, or just around the states. I've done a few lengthy trips myself so I have a little bit of insight to at least the brands and products I like and why. I know it can be a little broad.. I chose "Backpacking for Dummies" as my domain name and after gathering some ideas in the live chat, thought I could have tabs and "micro niches" for specifics. "Asia" or "Europe" and "U.S" ... so on and so forth. Thoughts?

That's a great idea to start with! I think focusing on backpacking gear is a great way to go, and then you can pick your main categories after that. You may want to consider something dividing it into the length of trip too. a 3-month tour of Europe will be different from a two week stay in Peru!

If you do end up going premium and move your domain to an official .com, I would recommend NOT choosing the "dummies" phrase in the name though. It may be trademarked! But you can change that later. Right now it's not a big deal.

I agreed with what you said regarding the "dummies" portion of the name ... hadn't thought of that. I'm a perfectionist though, and I knew I wouldn't do it right the first time around lol So since I wasn't very far, I just deleted it and started over. Backpacking 101. I don't believe this is a trademark. Learning as I go!

Onward! :-)

Good Morning Nathaniell!

Thank you so much for your informative and friendly messages! I'm getting ready to get started RIGHT NOW :-) I had a to-do list as long as my arm on Monday (I just moved to Knoxville, Tennessee!) and today I've dedicated to familiarizing myself with WA.

I'm both ambitious and confident about this experience, wish me luck!
