About DonnaJ
Joined October 2012
Welcome!

My name is Donna and I'm from South Carolina. I'm a proud wife and I have two beautiful children. My son is 17 and lives at home with us. My daughter is 28 and married to an awesome man in the army. They have three beautiful children. She is an amazing mom and he is an amazing dad. They have blessed us with two girls and one boy.

I enjoy learning and teaching methods of online marketing. I also love to have a great time with my family and friends every chance I get. They always brighten up the day.

Okay....as far as online marketing goes I sure have had my share of the "scams" over two years of it. As a single mom needing to make an income from home I was desperate to become successful for my family and I. What a mistake I made trusting those Guru's back then who were only out to take every dime I had and fill there own pockets. I still can not believe that I let myself fall for those fake promises!

Believe it or not...I have learned a lot from my mistakes. Common sense kept telling me that there was and still is plenty of money to be made working online from home. I had eventually managed to get a small taste of success but nowhere near enough for my son and me at the time to live a comfortable life.

Fortunately, I landed in the right place to finally learn how to make enough money to live out my dreams of becoming a Successful Entrepreneur. Here in WA, I found all those pieces to the puzzle that had been holding me back from making as much as I needed to make.

I am very comfortable and feel very welcomed here in WA and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. A Premium WA Account you ask? Well, let me just say" was definitely the right choice for me and still after all this time still is. They couldn't run me off with a switch! LOL!

I always look forward to meeting new Wealthy Affiliate Members. I love still learning from fellow WA Partners. Also, please know that I look forward to helping others here in WA with the knowledge I've gained along my journey to become successful.

Trust me...I know what It's like to be a newbie at online marketing so I have no problem sharing what I've learned the hard way with you. If you're thinking... "I'm never gonna be successful working online" like I used to think just give us a try if you can. If you can't right now we are still here to help.

My Goal? Well, that's to track down every person I possibly can and tell them how WA will put them well on there a way to online success. When newbies are "Willing" WA is always "Able"

Wishing everyone here much success!!

Hello Donna and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here a few years you will, like many before you, have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Hi Donna thanks for the follow, and you're not the only one to fall for the guru's scams. I myself got sucked into those fake promises, but I suppose we learn by our mistakes. Now we have a chance to turn it all around. Good Luck.

We have all been Newbies. Just know that there is also something good about being a Newbie. As you learn there is another coming right behind you that will benefit from what you've just learned day to day.

You may even have been on a training that answers exactly what a new member may need to know. So, here's to helping each other succeed at WA!! It's what makes WA the place you'll want to be when trying to start an online business :)

I enjoyed reading about you and the past horrible experience you went through in finding that one true online opportunity. There are many scammers out there. i'm sure everyone has their own story. I have mine too, obviously. And just like you, stubborn me insists that there is a piece of pie our there for me to be found working online from home. Thank you for sharing this article with us, Donna.

Hi Donna,
Was just checking to see if you managed to setup the authorship with your website and noticed a few things you need to fix.

The menu is a little messed up, the Home button goes to the About page and vise verse.
You also still need to add the website URL to you G+ profile, in the contributes to section.

If you can't figure it you're welcome to PM me the blog login details and I'll fix it for you after I've walked my dog and at the same time look into the other two error you mentioned earlier.

Hey Donnaj, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA! I suppose that most of us have fallen victim to the scam thugs out there. I've had my share also. I believe that we are in the right place to learn and that we'll do great if we follow those who have found that success. There are a lot of fine people here who are willing to help you. So don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. All the best to you :)

Hi Donna,

Yeah, it is very easy to get burned online by unscrupulous marketers who give sizzles without the steak. Fortunate for me, I've never had the extra money to blow on these things.

I also learned lessons very early on about commercial advertising. It led on to my somewhat skeptical views on things I see in the Internet. I don't get burned very easily with stuff and when I came across WA, I knew this was the place to be, no questions!

You are indeed in the right place and will go far here if you be diligent.
