About DebHumphries
Joined September 2013
I am a Mom of 4 awesome kids, two crazy dogs, two cool fish and an awesome and supportive hubby. I'm a tech geek and WordPress lover.

I started dabbling in the make money online thing in 2002 between jobs in the construction field. I spent a few hundred dollars on little eBooks and such and when it was time to go back to work, I left the dabble behind.

2004 for some reason I was bored as heck one night or drinking too much (could have been both) and decided to check out the make money online field again during my summer recess from the construction zone.

This time I spent about $2000 on some crazy pre-built websites, which actually would have worked out, had I known about the infamous missing ingredient, Traffic! Lol

Back to my safe job I returned, sober of course.

Forward to 2008, I was laid off due to the economy! So, I went after the make money online thing again. No drinking this time and I was definitely not bored. I had no faith in the economy getting better anytime soon and I wanted to learn the trade of Internet Marketing.

Funny, you never know how much you really spend until you download your entire PayPal account and add it up. Ouch! Over $50,000 from 2008 until present. Those bad shiny objects got me.

I know a little bit about everything and a whole lot about nothing. Thank the good lord, it was my own money I spent on this wild education and it did not effect our family finances.

Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. After being laid off again in December of 2011, I decided to do websites for local businesses, except I forgot where I live, deep in the woods. So, that is not going so well, even though I have the skills.

Now, I decided to get serious and join Wealthy Affiliate to follow a set of proven guidelines that have helped others, as well as be around like minded people I can learn from and contribute to as well.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and read my profile. I look forward to getting to know you better and learning about your online adventures as well. :)
DebHumphries's Goals 3
Money Goals
QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?

An extra $3500 a month to help pay bills.

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?

An extra $5000 a month to pay bills and have extra left over to expand my online business and pay taxes on the business earnings.

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

At the moment I have 8 to 10 hours a day to invest, but realistically 6 to 8 hours a day to remain highly productive for as long as it takes to reach my minimum goal of $3500 a month. I'm shooting for one year to be at this level, hopefully sooner.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are doing to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Debora, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I've been waiting for you to get here!

My name is Jennifer - also known as PotPieGirl here online.

I'm very excited for you as you begin your internet marketing journey to success!

There may be times that you will feel overwhelmed and/or confused. Rest assured, that is totally natural. You are taking charge of your future and that's a BIG deal - and something you should be very proud of.

Please be patient with yourself as you work through the training - and ask for help when you need it.

If you need any help, try these options:

1. Live Chat - On the right side of your main dashboard here in WA, there is an on-going stream of live chat discussions. Have a question? Just ask in the chat box.

And hey, don't be shy - say hello!

2. The Forum. WA has a GREAT forum! There is a wealth of info in the tons of existing posts - or you can start a new thread to ask your question.

3. Stop by my personal space here on WA and leave a message:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/potpiegirl

Don't forget to click the green button to "Follow Me" - that way we can keep up!

Also, down the LEFT side of your dashboard are 3 very important areas that you should make a point to read as soon as you join.

It's under 'Recommended Training' and the titles are:

-Warm Welcome
-Your First 10 Days
-Learn How WA Works

These will all be super helpful as you learn to navigate everything WA has to offer you.

As someone who started all this knowing NOTHING, I can tell you first-hand from 5+ years of experience that it is a jungle out "there" (outside the walls of Wealthy Affiliate).

Please know that when you are here INSIDE this exclusive community, that you are safe and have all you need to grow your online business to whatever level YOU choose.

I've been here in WA since July 2008 - joining Wealthy Affiliate was the BEST decision I've made. I feel sure you will realize the same as you learn and work to make YOUR dreams come true.

I wish you all the best and remember -

It's not how fast you get there - it's how long you stay.

To YOUR Success!

Jennifer

Hi PotPieGirl,

I have been an avid reader of your blog for several years and a member of both your One Week Marketing and your new RAM course. Love them all!!

I am giving this my all this time, because I have no job tying up my time and a much better idea of what direction I would like to go in.

I look forward to learning from everyone here at WA and thank you for the warm welcome.
