Ugh. I can write about anything on any topic but, when it comes to writing about myself, I find yours truly sitting and staring at the pulsating cursor on the screen. With every pulse, the imaginary pounding gets louder in my head.
Well, I guess writing a profile is the only place you can talk about yourself without sounding like a pompous twit. Hopefully.
Well, I have many interests: reading, writing, crocheting, traveling, dancing, acting, hiking, cycling, baking, cooking and playing the ukulele. I can go on and on. I really don't want to limit myself. I like to try everything at least once as long as it's not immoral or illegal.
I love to learn. I attended college right out of high school and obtained a diploma in Organizational Communication which is just a fancy way of saying Corporate Journalism. Then, later in life, I attended university and obtained my Hons. B.A. in Creative Writing and English Literature. Along the way, I also obtained a diploma in Television Acting, Makeup Art for Film/Television and Teaching English as a Second Language to name a few.
I've had many careers throughout the years - office administrator, photographer, editor, dancer, actor, and writer etc. So, how did I end up in the internet marketing game? Due to circumstances beyond my control, I found myself in desperate times with literally no retirement savings and a limited income. Therefore, I started to investigate ways to make a steady income, but not just some 9 to 5 job. I wanted to be financially free to do what I'm really passionate about. For that reason, I began my search where 99% of the earth's population does - the internet.
During my search, I came across a lot of online opportunities and embarrassingly admit that I fell for some of the scams out there. These scammers lure you in with empty promises and fairytale dreams. "You'll be a millionaire in no time, Barb. With our system, every time you raise and lower your arm like a slot machine, you'll be farting out thousand dollar bills!" I didn't think I was that naive but, when you're in a desperate situation, you somehow convince yourself that what these scammers are offering really will change your life. However, I had hope. Not everybody out there is a swindler. People are making money on the internet - a lot of money. I just needed to find the right system and, finally, I did - Wealthy Affiliate.
As I'm sure all of you already know, out of all the systems out there, Wealthy Affiliate is the only one that allows you to sign up for FREE and get FREE training and support. Also, they are up front and don't promise you'll make millions of dollars a day starting the very day you sign up while sitting in front of the tv watching soap operas and eating bonbons. Let's be honest here. Starting an online business takes work. The more work you put into your business, the greater profits you'll see. And, yes, it is possible to become a millionaire. There are a lot of them interacting with you within the Wealthy Affiliate Community who started out right here.
I must say, with all honesty, I am so glad I found Wealthy Affiliate. After spending just a few days going through the training, I could see the tremendous opportunity I had right in front of me and signed up for Premium in the first week. I haven't regretted it one bit.
