About Dkn
Joined July 2014
I was born and raised in Hawaii. I am an artist, mother, grandmother, rebel, and hopefully I will get to be a wealthy affiliate :)
Being raised in Hawaii, where it is very expensive, I have struggled my whole life while raising my 2 boys. I often painted portraits to make ends meet. In 2005 I started creating stained glass lamps and panels and built my own website, which enabled me to survive till 2011, when I lost my shop. Since then I've been painting and hope to build a portfolio that's worthy of being marketed.
However, in the meantime, I still need to eat and have been scouring the internet for a way to make money and have checked out many sites. I totally believe in affiliate marketing, but after much trial and error I have come to the conclusion that I need all the help I can get to be successful at it.

Thanks for the follow, Doreen! Living in Hawaii sounds wonderful, but I hear it's really tough. I look forward to working with you!

Hi Carla,
Tough is an understatement! :-) It's wonderful if you have the money, but if you don't, you have to work 2 or 3 jobs just to get by, then you don't enjoy it here. What keeps a lot of us here is family.

Thank you for such a warm greeting. Is Keane a Hawaiian name?
Reply
Keane Premium
It was my pleasure Doreen. Actually Keane - based on my readings and findings is a name is representative of a brave person...at least so I've read. And no, it's not Hawaiian, lol. It has an English origin!

Wishing you the very,
Keane:)

hello, Ive entered affiliate boot camp. Although I'm really an artist and I have a website already, making money with affiliate marketing is a skill that I really want to learn, not only to further my art career but to also fund my art. So far, am very impressed with wealthy affiliate and the sincerity of the people here.

Hi dkn! I definitely believe there is market for your artwork. It's beautiful. My son just started a website for his www.mattaiudi.com
Maybe that can give you some starting ideas. Good luck!

Hi Melissa, Wow I really like your son's art and the idea of controlled chaos. That's sort of what I feel like I'm trying to do when I babysit my grandchildren ;-) (I have 6 of them)

Hi Doreen
Thanks for the follow back appreciated.
Perhaps once your website is created take the photos from your portfolio and put that into the site as well. Make sure you have copy write to them in case people use photos of your portraits without permission.
Don't forget! Should have any questions regarding the lesson you are going through at the end you can ask questions there while they are still fresh in you mind. Wishing you well.
Take care be well.

You're here to build an Internet Marketing business and Wealthy Affiliate will help you achieve just that. To seriously get things moving into high-gear, I have a few bonuses I want to send your way.

I wrote out the exact steps I take to start a new website from scratch. This includes how I pick a niche, come up with content for the site, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2008. I know first hand that they work. :)

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, I am here and I am available. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA, I know you are going to love it!
