About Cris1018
Joined October 2018
First and foremost, I'm a Mom. I love being a Mom, and I want the most time possible to spend with my kids, so I work at home as a web designer. WA gives me the ability to utilize my skills in expanded ways.

About me...
I have one wonderful husband, and two wonderful boys.
I love the outdoors: biking, hiking, ATV riding, camping, fishing, plants & football.
I love food: ALL the food. And microbreweries. And wineries.
I love the beach. I love the mountains.
I love to travel, and expect to do a lot more of it.
I love to volunteer, and expect to do a lot more of it.
I love books. I would love to write one someday. And I will.
I love daily positivity and productivity.
I love people who believe we should teach our children to leave the world a better place than we found it.
I love life, and the ability to improve it for myself and others around me.

About why I'm here...
I want to create a full time income, in a full time HOME office.
I want my husband to stay home as well.
I want days off to be DAYS OFF.
I want to work to live, but NOT live to work. That's depressing.
In other words, I don't want to be in the corporate job world again.

I like to write.
I like computers.
I like to be surrounded by like-minded individuals.
So, WA for the Win!

Hi Cris,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

I love your Profile and your training. I see that you are in this year's SAC too. How are you getting along?

I have spent the past week recouping and fixing/updating my website. Tomorrow I start writing again in earnest.

Best wishes,

Hi Paul,

You're welcome, and thank you back! I realized that I kept seeing your profile pic around the platform and that we weren't connected yet.

Yes, the SAC. It's going! It's a lot of work, but just in the first month, I have learned soooo much. I had some bumps and curveballs, but I just keep on pushing forward.

Take care,
Cris

Cris, you said you liked the mountains and microbreweries, you need to check out Asheville North Carolina. Another thing we have to offer is The Biltmore House built by the Vanderbilt family in the late 1880s as a family resident and farm. It is called one of America's greatest castle. Google both places maybe when your dreams of a successful online business come true, you may want to take in what our area has to offer. I followed you and like your profile, thanks Sruffey.

I have been to the Biltmore House several times and the best time to visit the house is at Christmas time they really do it up nicely. Hope you have a wonderful evening and here is our success here at WA, thanks Sruffey. If you wonder where the name Sruffey came from I wrote a post here on my profile page.

Wow! As the daughter of an architect, and the granddaughter of a mechanic, I can appreciate both of those to a great extent! My husband & I plan to do a restoration project with our boys in a few years. Not sure what model we'll decide on, but it'll be fun! Nice to connect with you guys here :-)

Chris, thank you for the comment on my profile.

You sound like an amazing mom that has a passion for life.

I would like to think that WA allows us to spend all day doing the things we love and then blogging about it. In time, the blogging efforts will fund the activities, to include the family things, that we enjoy.

Best wishes. I look forward to celebrating your progresses and achievements.

Hello Cris And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

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

Thank you all for the warm welcomes. I am running out of the gate with this. The problem for me is not picking a niche... I have several ideas. So the "problem" is connecting my content to creating an income, as I am not to the point in the training where I see the connection. BUT, I'm pushing forward. I'm following each and every step. I'm watching every video and completing the steps as instructed. I have a website that I'm creating content for, and I have faith that it will all lead to the business I am trying to create. Here's to the next step!

Cheers,
Cris

HI Chris,

I think you will find many individuals here that can help you enrich your future, I'd like to be one of them. I’d like to be one of the first member’s here at WA to congratulate you, on making what I think to be a very smart decision toward securing your finances in the near future, and that was upgrading to premium.

You will find that there is plenty of training being offered on this platform not just through the two main training courses that you have most likely already started one of them, if not just click on the green "Training" tab on the left over there to get started.

Additional over on the left is recorded copies of Jay’s webinars click on "Live Events" tab to view those, also, Friday evening 8pm US Pacific Standard Time is when the live events happen. You won't want to miss those and you’ll just use the same tab to join those events with Jay and everyone else).

Straight above in the black WA tool bar (just right of the WA icon) is a search box that has a cornucopia of information anything A-Z about online entrepreneurship, website design, and other aspect relevant to your new online business. You can find all that information and so much more hidden in that gem.

Then if you cannot find your answer in any of the platform’s resources you can always asking the member’s 24/7 “live Chat” tab also located on the left over there. You should be able to find someone in there that can answer your question or guide you in the right direction to get it solved.

WA is a “NO SPAM ZONE”, they consider posting your Domain name/URL/logo/company name without being asked to do so, as spam here. Here is a link the Kyle’s posted copy of the WA rules: There are a couple of spots that you are allowed to openly post your URL (but no logo’s or company names are to be posted anywhere on this site) on the lower far right of your profile page there is a spot, and then 2 platforms which can be found by clicking the websites tab on the WA home page and they are site feedback, and site comment.

What most members do is put website’s link in the lower right hand corner of their profile page then when you ask someone to look at your site they will know right where to go to find the link as long as you are both following each other.

I hope your stay here is long and very lucrative. If you ever need any additional help please don’t hesitate to ask anyone for help, the community is full of members willing to help n any way possible - including me :-D

Once again Welcome to WA!

Affiliate marketing is our priority: where content is KING and consistency is the KEY to your SUCCESS

Best of luck to you,

Calvin

Congratulation on upgrading to Premium! You have begun a journey that will change your life.
Just remember, life is filled with situations where we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ decision. If you run, you’ll have to face the same fight again. Do you want to change your life? You have to fight for it. But take heart – you are in good company! Don't give up!
Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.

Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask

Hey Cris!

I'm so glad you made it here to Wealthy Affiliate! Congrats on going premium! I'm so glad you made it here to Wealthy Affiliate!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Kind regards,
Suzanne

Hey Cris!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video: Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training: If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Cris!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)

P.S. If you have any doubts that this business is real or if it will work for you, check this little article out: When you see what companies are already involved in this business, it's going to be eye opening!
