About EConley
Joined January 2017
I am a 54 year old empty-nester looking to start a new way of life which supports my family's well being. I home schooled my children, the youngest of whom just left for college.

I hope to augment my very modest income as a tutor and contribute more financially, while still remaining largely available to my wonderful husband of 33 years. I have had difficulty finding regular employment, because my twenty years as a home educator make American public school systems uneasy, and the employers of the United Arab Emirates, where I currently live, prefer not to hire women in my age group. I am through regretting these circumstances. All this means is that there is an opportunity waiting for me in a direction I have not yet explored.

I spent 8 years in the U. S. Marines, I hold a current teaching license with the state of Virginia in secondary mathematics.

My interests include sailing, hiking, canoeing, education and all things related to family health and nutrition.

I currently live in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

You're welcome. When I was new to WA I confused the two. Apparently it's a VERY common mistake. I was super embarrassed.

You were definitely smart to check.

Hey Elizabeth,

Great article. Learned a lot from it.

I would suggest you might want to change your "comment plugin" I couldn't type my comment directly on your comment section because i couldn't see the whole comment. So typed it up on wordpad and copied and pasted it. Wasn't able to do proper editting on the format hence why it looks a bit busy. If you can, please fix it as i did follow proper formatting. Couldn't find the edit button to do it myself.

Exactly. I went to my site and saw what you meant about how hard it was to add a comment. I don't recall this issue in the past and I'm at a loss as to how to solve it.

I am going to sleep on the question and tackle it in the morning. It's my bedtime now. I'm much smarter after I sleep!

Janakhan Premium
Are you using a specific plugin for comments? That may be the problem. If not it could be your theme. Check and see if the theme had a new update or something, and hence why the problem showed up now and not before.

Good night!
Reply
EConley Premium
The problem is almost certainly theme related. The theme support interface is really bad. Nonetheless, when I finally manage to communicate with them they fix things very competently.

Now that I'm well-rested I can begin the process. I suspect that the people who are going to like my site will be pretty wordy folks. I need a comment platform that supports that.

Thanks for your help,

Elizabeth

Hello Elizabeth from UAE and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Bet you're not happy at being over the hill at 54 lol.
I had the same problem and that's why I took early retirement at 55. Best thing I ever did.

Anyway since you joined you will surely have realized by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Yeah,

"Over the Hill" at 54 is a joke, but I'm not laughing. I have never had more skills, more energy or more dedication to teaching. I am never sick, exercise for an hour + every day just to take the edge off my energy levels so I can sleep, and the children I teach as a private tutor exceed all previous expectations concerning their potential. In spite of this I'm "too old."

Employers are crazy. I am lucky to have breathing room in the form of a wonderful spouse. He deserves some support, and I am throwing myself into WA with all my free time.

I am following you, and I am sure I can learn from your experiences.

Thank you for reaching out.

Hello again Elizabeth.
Staying positive and having the right mindset is a great way ti live because as far as I'm concerned you never stop learning until you're dead.

I retired early because my employers goals for me didn't match my own and quite frankly they didn't make sense to me because I knew what I was capable of and knew I had the potential to go a lot further than my employer did.
I think they just like to pigeon hole you.
With me that was like trying to put a square peg in a round hole so I said thanks but no thanks and went my own way.

You will get a lot of tips and advice in my blogs.
Just pick out the ones you believe will help you now and the rest can wait.
Enjoy your Sunday Elizabeth and onwards and upwards.
Robert

Ali M,

This is a new world for me, and I'm struggling to find the on ramp to the information highway! I haven't joined twitter yet and I haven't made my facebook page presentable, although both are on my "to do list" this week. I'm going to like your facebook page, and I'll send you links for my business facebook page when I get it cleaned up, and twitter as well. Those last two will take me a day or two.

Thank you for your kindness. Please bear with me as I learn how to use social media!

All the best,

Elizabeth

Thanks Kyle.

My family really needed me yesterday, so I didn't make the progress I wanted to. (I really love being available to my family. That's one of the reasons why I'm so interested in this type of work.)

Also, what progress I made was in revisiting the previous lesson. I felt like I hadn't done the most effective key word searches I could have. The second time around, having slept on the concept, I did better.

You have been very supportive. The entire community is very helpful and encouraging.

Thank you,

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! :)
Reply
EConley Premium
Thank you Kyle. I did struggle with the question for a while, but I started the struggle about the moment I joined WA!

It was a toss up between 1. Thriving as an Expat in the UAE, 2. Health and Beauty After 50, 3. and Education Techniques and Products.
By the time the "choose your niche" lesson had arrived my mind was made up. I concluded that I was best qualified and most passionate about #3.

I can always change my mind or run multiple sites later, right?

Thanks for reaching out. I'm enjoying your helpful videos.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

PS. So glad you are enjoying everything thus far Elizabeth, it only gets more and more exciting as you see your business come together. If you ever need a hand with anything moving forward let me know. :)
