About Donnas88
Joined April 2014
Hi, I'm Donna and I have come full circle with trying to learn IM. I was a member quite a while ago and got information overload and gave it up for a while.
However my circumstances have drawn me back to trying to create a real business online that will grow and prosper.
I have spent the last couple of months going through free info but as many of you probably know it's lacking and it's a great thing to have it all in one place and know you can ask a question without feeling like a complete moron.
I do have a little more understanding under my belt now (I still dislike content writing a lot) and had a lot of trouble with keyword research, but I think I have gained in knowledge and know that it takes more dedication than I was willing to put out earlier, mostly because I did not understand it.
I have a new mind set and that is...I want to succeed and I am now ready to work my butt off to get to where I want to be as soon as I can get there.
I really appreciate that WA is such a strong program and has stuck around...believe me over the last couple of years I have seen A LOT of junk and it's really sad.
So here I am again with new ideas, better understanding and ready to reach my very high goals.
I live in Vancouver Island, B. C. Canada. I love reading ancient history, Hiking, Kayaking and walking the dogs.
I raised 5 children and I am a grandma of 6 now and it's great. Currently looking for some part time work to supplement my income while I work on this course. I'm excited to be back and putting what I have learned to good use.
I wish everyone great success.

Update: March 5/15
Well I got my wish for employment and ended up working 3 jobs until Jan 2015. So needless to say I did not have a lot of time for my website creation and I had to give up WA for a time, but I made a heck of a lot of money and spent some time in Vegas in Jan. I loved it and want to go back. Anyway I quit 2 jobs before my holidays and now find myself with more time to work on this project and joined up again a few days ago, and low and behold I got a call for a job interview from an old resume...hahaha, WA just brings me the work...hahaha but this time I will not let this website slide and continue to work on it as much as I possibly can. I want to earn money yes but I would prefer to be doing it from home....alas until then I will do the grind of a daily job. 3rd times the charm and it's gonna be a blast.
Cheers

Thanks for the follow too Donna. I read your profile and found out that you live where I was born. I grew up there and still have relatives on the Island. Most of my cousins with a few living Aunt's and Uncles too. However, I live in Adelaide, South Australia now I will of course return to the Island sometime for visits. It's a beautiful place as well. Best of all to you, this time around. Teresa

Hahaha...it's a small world. I was born and raised in Victoria but now live on the northern end of the island. It is beautiful and we have been having some amazing weather this spring so all the flowers and trees are in full bloom early. I would love to be able to live somewhere warm during the winter though, that's my dream for retirement.

I loved the Zentagle too..... even though I'm not an artistic person. The drawings are beautiful and I left a comment.
I've just started my site, and I have lots too change in it. If you have time to check it.... http://AllHerbsAndSpices.com

ceciminelli, Thanks for the wonderful feed back, it's very nice to hear. It may be a couple of months before I get the other 2 sites populated with content as I want to finish the last course and lessons before I focus on something new. I checked out your site and it's coming along very nicely. You need a header for your site, there is a guy on fiverr who does wonderful work, did all of my headers, it's newbold3 if your interested. You have a great menu set up and ready for your content. It looks great so far. If you need any help just let me know and I will do my best to do so. I left you a comment.
Have a great day.

Hi Donna, I love all your sites. I'm supposing you just started on the dog one as well as the fairy garden. Both are going to be Sweet! The Zentangle site looks very interesting. Very fine detailed looking art to say the least. I really like it.
Have a blessed day!
Reply
Donnas88 Premium
sSchovajsa, thank you so much. yes, I haven't started on the other 2 sites yet but wanted to get them set up and ready to go. Was supposed to have a couple of writers but things didn't work out so I will have to go about it myself and would like to finish all the lessons here before I move on to the next sites. Zentangle is awesome and that is my main focus at the time, I'm glad you like it.
Have a great day.

HI Jay...thanks for all the help you have supplied thus far and I'm sure I will hit you up for some more in the future....hahaha. I'm really wanting to understand the functions of my website right now so that it all looks professional and correct. I was thinking about maybe adding a gallery on it and doing a yearly membership (in the future) for other Zentangle artists to show and sell their work...what are your thoughts on that? Anyway, thanks for all your help and I'll be seeing you around.
Cheers
Reply
jaytech Premium
Interaction with others is really good for SEO & making an impression on the internet, so your idea is really good. A gallery is also a good idea, a place to show off your work.

I'm currently in the process of drafting a post with some art my mother has done, it's quite different to your work, but am very proud of her.
Reply
Donnas88 Premium
Excellent, I will make sure I check out your new post as all art is amazing, I love it all, your a good son. And thanks so much for the feedback on that idea, it has been rolling around in my head for a few days.

Hi Donna, I enjoyed reading your profile message as it was most inspirational! I can relate to lots of things you've gone through. I'm happy for you with all the job offers and getting a chance to do some things for enjoyment. I just know your "stay at home" dream will materialize. I agree, that having all the "content" compiled here helps and eliminates a lot of info overload...As there is always comfort in knowing there's no rush and we can learn this stuff at our own pace whether fast or slow. The main thing is that we "get this"....LoL Take care and best wishes to you!

Thank you very much Beverly, it is becoming a very wonderful journey and learning experience.

Hi Donna. I like your persistance to keep coming back and not give up. The link to your first two websites didn't work for me but I was able to check out the Zentangle site. Interesting topic. I've never heard of it before. In fact, perhaps that would be a good blog post: "What is Zentangle" to give those of us new to the topic an idea of what it is. I wish you lots of success.

Hi Pamela, I have not gotten around to developing that site again. It was what I was working on the last time I was here and ended up working 3 jobs in the real world and had no time to work on it. However it is something I will go back too after I finish up the site I am working on now. Thank you so much for interest though. I also have a Yorkie cross and they are just the cutest, sweetest little dogs.
I hope you have a great day. Cheers

Thanks, Donna. I visited Zentangle - that is really cool! I know what multiple jobs are like - I, like you, work at 3 jobs, all of which I actually like. WA is my 4th job - and will be the one that allows me to quit my day job. For the next while, I'll be working pretty hard - but I can see the end result and it will be worth it.

When you see the end result then it must be so and come into your reality. Success is assured for you already.

Hi Donna,

I've helped 1000's of people over the years build thriving online businesses and the Wealthy Affiliate platform will provide you the tools and training to succeed as well.

Kyle, myself, and many other very helpful people hang out at WA and are always willing to lend a hand.

If you have any questions I suggest using the Live chat as you will get answers very quickly. Or you can ask questions within tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their Spaces.

Here is the initial training that I suggest you get started with:

Hey Donna and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am Steve, the owner of IveTriedThat. I just wanted to let you know that I am here to help you through your journey into the online world, so if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification "Getting Started Course". This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labelled "Get Started Here"

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

HOW TO GET YOUR HANDS ON MY AWESOME BONUS!
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.

But most importantly...

(3) I am going to be giving you my "2014 Roadmap to Success"

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. :)

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

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!

If there's anything I can do for you Donna, just let me know!

Cheers!

Thanks Steve, I appreciate your introduction and I will more than likely have questions. I will also be upgrading in a couple of days. I was a member a while ago but I don't think I was really ready for the intense work and huge learning curve, got info overload. I have done quite a bit on my own and now feel ready to take the big plunge and put my passions to work for me. WA is a great place. Thanks again and talk soon.
