About Cylia
Joined August 2016
My name is Theresa, and I am so happy to be here. I think this is the place where I can actually make a reliable living online. I have been an educator, a business woman, a writer and consultant. I love to help people see the best in themselves and aim high. I spent most of my professional life in California helping to build and run a company that delivers seminars to people who want to embody greater autonomy, authenticity and personal responsibility. I returned to my hometown semi-retired, but then the economy collapsed and swallowed my nest-egg. Since then I've struggled to find meaningful work that will provide a reliable comfortable livelihood. At the same time, I have been dabbling in online marketing, but I have always been discouraged because doing the programs always proved that the simplicity promised by the pitch was a ploy. Recently, however, feeling the necessity again to work at home (and with mobility), I began a renewed search for a legitimate online business education. That's when I found John's compelling promotion for Wealthy Affiliate. So here I am, ready to go and--finally--make a living online that will eventually allow me the freedom to pursue other interests--like writing some books, traveling, taking care of animals and pursuing my fitness goals. I anticipate having a passion for my business, and I look forward to getting to know my fellow WA business-folk.

Money Goals
Well, I'd be happy making $50K year one.
I would be ecstatic earning $100K year one.
Beyond that . . . wow, I don't want to be greedy, but it would be nice to earn a million dollars to share with others who need it as badly as I do right now. I would love that!
I'm willing to invest 40 hours per week--or more if this works.

I agree that it would be nice to apply ourselves full-time at first but begin to have freedom. That's awesome that you have so many interests, especially writing a book! That's fantastic

Hi Theresa!
Thank you very much for following me and welcome to the WA community! Be sure to follow all the training that is available on this site and don't be afraid to ask questions. The people in the WA community, myself included, are happy to help you. Best of luck to you in your endeavors.
Regards,
Shawn - Yearly Premium Member

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.

Cylia, welcome. What are your ideas for your web format? Perhaps some contacts from your previous seminars, educational products along with your writings would be some products for your site, newsletter/subscriptions? Sorry, I assumed you are looking for development ideas, just offering support....
Don

Cylia Premium
Thanks for your interest, Don. Fresh ideas are always welcome. I've decided to start with a website to sell Wealthy Affiliate. I want to help people who have been frustrated, like I was, by the process of trying one thing after another to learn how to put a business together online; nothing promised ever panned out. Then I happened upon Wealthy Affiliated, and now I see what was always missing: The real step-by-step education and the caring support along the way to keep you moving in the right direction. Becoming an expert in Wealthy Affiliate will help me succeed and will help me share and sell it to the people who are looking for it. My answer to everything you mentioned above is "Yes!"

I wish you the best of luck with all your goals here. I'm sure we'll be seeing each other.

Best regards,
Theresa

Hi, David!
I, too, think we've found the right source to succeed. I've only been here a short time longer than you, but I already know that the hard parts can be overcome by going to people for help. I assure you that it works--if you haven't found out already. If you need help asking for help, ask me. That much I know how to do. :) Frankly, ask everyone by posting your problem at the head of the page. It's AMAZING!

I'm doing the Affiliate Bootcamp, which is a choice you can make down the line a bit if you want to start a business promoting Affiliate Bootcamp, which I do. I want to help people find the same honest system I have after so much grief.

Are you going to be focusing your site on metal detecting, or do you have a different idea in mind? Whatever you do, as long as you stick with it and engage the community. I'm sure you'll be brilliant.

See you down the line.
Theresa

Glad to meet you Cylia! Sounds like you have some ebooks to write and cool niche products to find for them while you work on that novel. Cool! My problem is actually writing content. I'm a little slow with that :)
Reply
Cylia Premium
I'm going to have to look seriously at writing some ebooks about making money online I think because I intend to, first of all, promote Wealthy Affiliate to start the money making because I think it's the best way I can help people right now who share what has been my biggest frustration online. No products I've seen offer a business building system with anything close to the instruction and support that WA does. Then I'll add other interests. I have too many to choose just one right now. That's the second reason I'm promoting the treasure WA appears to be.

About writing content: One of the things I used to tell students (because it works for me to do it this way) is to write your first draft just getting your ideas down. Just start. Don't worry about things being correct. Run it through spellcheck and Grammarly (if you use such apps) later on. Set it aside for a while, and go back and reread it later. When you come back to it, you'll have more ideas and see places where you really want to say a lot more and other places that you want to cut because they're beside the point you finally realize you want to make. The more times you do that--set it aside and come back to it fresh--the better. DON'T TRY TO MAKE IT PERFECT UNTIL YOU'RE FINISHING IT. You'll know you're finished when you don't want to change it.

That's my "two-cents worth."

Good luck!
Theresa

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! :)

Thank you. In over 2 years of doing the show, it's the first unsolicited comment I have had. I know people are listening, I see the stats but no one says anything. The show is now listened to in over 30 countries on a very regular basis. Sometimes I am amazed, I log on and see people that have been listening for days on end. My "day" job is running my family's hotel so the radio show is my creative outlet. Thanks again.

I've got my eye on that clock, Kyle. Using it to press me to finish the first course in the first week. I've been doing too much site-seeing so far. I'm so impressed with so many of the WA members' websites and videos. I'm very enthused about where this will allow me to go.
Thank you for being so attentive and so responsive to my concerns.
