About Dwcookie
Joined April 2017
I'm a Massage Therapist with a great love for Travel, Photography, Dogs and Writing. I'm addicted to packing a bag and exploring the world as much as I possibly can and the best way for me to do that would be to work online so I can do my job from literally anywhere in the world.

Thus far I've visited Switzerland, Germany, Alsace France, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Aruba and multiple Islands from Cruises (love being on the Ocean). Currently planning a Hawaiian Cruise for early next year and possibly Finland later in the year. Like I said I love to Travel.

Securing my future is extremely important to me so instead of focusing on finding the ONE and getting married I'm saying to heck with that and focusing on making as much money as I can so good luck to me. Hopefully this will lead me in all the right directions.

Hey Dawn!

I want to make sure you know about a very special deal going on this month during Black Friday.

**********BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL!!!**********

From November 24th - 27th you can UPGRADE TO A YEARLY MEMBERSHIP FOR THE PRICE OF ONLY $299/YEAR.

Yearly membership is usually a great deal in and of itself normally at $359/year, but at $299/year (a price you'd be grandfathered into for LIFE), this averages to all this training and mentorship for less than $25/month!

I URGE YOU TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THIS DEAL AND UPGRADE TO THE YEARLY MEMBERSHIP NOVEMBER 24TH-27TH FOR THE CRAZY LOW PRICE OF $299!

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask :)

Absolutely! I remembered you mentioning going yearly and I was like "this has dawn written all over it". The best part is you'd be grandfathered in at that price for life. Best deal going. Make sure you take full advantage :)

Is the earth flat or is it round? A friend of mine all day at work has been trying to get me to believe its flat. What do you thing?
Reply
ericcantu Premium
Now that is hilarious.
I guess she's never seen a lunar eclipse where you can see the earth's round shadow, or never travelled? Ask her to explain basic concepts like time zones and how it's dark in Tokyo right now if the earth is flat. Lol
Reply
ericcantu Premium
Also ask where the big drop off cliff is at the edge of the world cuz I gotta put that on my bucket list lol
Reply
dwcookie Premium
Frustrating is more like it. Apparently no she's never seen a lunar eclipse and all the pictures we have seen over the years showing a very round earth is FAKE. NASA is lying and deceiving us. Heaven help me.

She's actually concerning me. She said some other stuff after the earth being flat that gave me a headache and seriously made me consider calling her husband and telling him to have her committed.
Reply
ericcantu Premium
Lol. Well see you're going to be handicapped in this argument with her because you work within the laws of logic and reason and she obviously does not :)

Tell her getting out is a good thing. lol
And seriously, where's the cliff where the world ends cuz I wanna go.
Reply
dwcookie Premium
I honestly don't know what the hell happened. A few months back she seemed fine then all of a sudden complete 360.

She gets out plenty. And I'll ask about the cliff where the world ends for ya, lol. Though I doubt she knows but I'll still ask anyway, lol.

The good Lord did. And the world is going to end in September starting with the eruption of the Yellowstone volcano which will trigger volcanoes everywhere. So make your peace with God it's all about to end in a couple months.

I'm concerned about her seriously.
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Well, the volcano under Yellowstone is a real thing...it will erupt again and it will destroy most of North America. I don't think it will happen in September though!

Yeah that would be weird to work with someone that actually believed this stuff. I have one here but at least she understands the Earth is round.
Reply
dwcookie Premium
I do get and understand Yellowstone but for all that's Holy and sane some of the other stuff I just don't get. Love her to pieces and trying really hard not to hurt her feelings or be rude but I'm reaching my breaking point for strangeness.
Reply
ericcantu Premium
Where in the world did u hear that an eruption would take out most of North America? that's like an extinction event lol. You're gonna get Dawn all paranoid! Lol
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Well not literally, but the after effects would. You know...ash blocking out the sun etc. It will be an extinction event. Not like the biggest asteroid impacts, but way worse than anything we have ever seen.
Reply
ericcantu Premium
I think while theoretically an eruption like that is always *possible*, they've said with regard to that particular volcano that a muuuuuch less devastating eruption is what they'd expect. Like in the realm of close the park down for a while as opposed to i hope we've colonized mars lol. Danger would be if you were right there and in the path of lava flow, but nothing near an extinction event good god I have a business I'm building lol

You're welcome. I'm a little addicted to traveling, Can't wait to pack my bags again. We should have a WA getaway. Pick a location, meet there and just have fun.

Heading to Ireland next year as well and Alaska is on my bucket list.
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Do you know where you are going in Ireland? My favorite locals there were Glendalough, Newgrange (which is older than Stonehenge and astronomically aligned), the Dingle Peninsula and the Rock of Cashel.

Yes, I have thought the same thing. A WA get together somewhere in the world.

Dublin, Kinsale, staying a night at Ashford Castle and Cong. I'm going with a group and it has a awesome itinerary. I'm sure we'll be able to take off to see things on our own. Can't not wait.

I think we really should do a WA trip.
Reply

Kinsale was so cute! I really liked that too! Dublin is very close to Newgrange. Just a short drive to the north from Dublin to Newgrange.

That moment you get a FB post from your boss about a review from a client and you seriously want to flip your #$%&. You want to immediately respond but know in your anger you'll come off a tad bitchy. Can't vent on my FB because she is one of my friends and I'd like to keep my job until I quit and not get fired. Woo-saa, breathe, just breathe. Sit down and compose a nicely structured, non-blunt, non-angry sounding response.

Needed to vent, just ignore me as usual, it's ok, really.

Realized just now I'm working on three things at the same time, brochure for website 2, working on website 2 itself and crazily realized Mother's Day is in 10 days so I became an Amazon Affiliate, created website 3 and am working on that in hopes of catching those late folks who God Forbid can't shop months in advance for a mother's day gift. I have a problem. I think I need intervention, lol.

Things are going great very impressed with everything so far and might take the plunge and become Premium. I've bought wine more expensive than the monthly payment.

And I won't be a stranger.I'll be bugging the crap outta ya, don't you worry. In a good way though, lol.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle

Things are going ok. Niche, so many things and avenues to take. Had an interest in Travel but that is very broad. Not sure how to break it down.
Reply
Kyle Premium
What aspect of the travel niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down. Where specifically? What type of travel? What aspect of travel?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
Reply
dwcookie Premium
I have no idea, will have to think about that long and hard about it and figure it out, thank you.
Reply
Kyle Premium
All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Hi Kyle, became an affiliate of booking.com which offers everything from flights to hotels, rentals etc but not sure how to integrate with my site. They sent an email askiing that I 1) Copy the following meta tag and paste it into the home page of your website or 2) Add a new html page called
083fb8d30293a5f5513779202498527ff90eebcb.html to verify the site and neither worked thus I gather I'm doing it wrong. Any advice or recommendations so it'll work? Thanks.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You find this within your actual code, which is found within your Editor.

If you go to:

Appearance => Editor => Header.php

Within your WP back office, you will be able to edit the code and you will see this code there. Then you can add the Booking.com code that is given to you. Just make sure you do not delete anything within the code as it can break your site.

Hope this helps you out and if you need any further help, let me know.
