About EMAEstra
Joined March 2016
'Thrilled to be part of this vibrant network of people helping others to learn this "foreign language" of doing business on the internet! (I was on Jay's Q & A hangout yesterday afternoon--and I noted term after term with question marks next to them so I could go back and research what that stuff is!)

I'm trying to spend an hour or so a day on this site--working through the trainings, looking at others' posts and profiles, and asking the questions that are most top of mind for me.

I'm a 60-something-expat-wannabee, building a steady, reliable retirement income I can earn from anywhere in the world. I have advanced degrees, much student loan (and cc) debt, and a house and a horse that both EAT MONEY!

'looking forward to the day I can be of service to some of you "newer-than-I-am newbees" on this wonderful forum!

So I've been Premium on WA for 6 months... It's time to get something done here. I'm as clueless as when I started--with only slightly more time to devote--but I have decided to max out the features and benefits of this system and community to see what I can make happen.

Hi Emma,
Good to meet you ! Comment from your profile as far as helping others. Stolen from some ajor guru's on another platform. If you've done the training or research on a subject you are now qualified to teach that subject. There are no doubt more senior members who haven't. So I wouldn't hesitate to think you knew more on some subjects and would always be happy to learn from anybody.
eMAEstra Premium
Thanks, Mike, for your encouragement. You are right. There are areas where I do know more than some--and yes, I could share that knowledge and help others. Thanks. Peace, Marie

Robert-A Premium
Hello Marie and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in March last year you will perhaps 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 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.
eMAEstra Premium
hi Robert-A--thanks for your comment. How can I find your 300+ blogs? Do you actively maintain and post to all 300+? Please explain. I have not yet started "blogging" but I want to and I do not know enough about it... thanks for your help. Peace, Marie
Robert-A Premium
Hello Again Marie
By blogs I mean I publish blogs within wealthy affiliate to help my fellow WA members.
If you go to my Profile Page and on the right side you will see the first 10 blogs listed and if you click on View All you will get a page with all of them (most recent first)
I don't actually have a blogging site.
I have 2 websites within WA on which I publish articles promoting WA.

Here's a link to to get started with Blogger where you can create an account and blog to your hearts content and its free from Google -

Or you can create your own Blog Website here within WA.

You need help you get in touch or just ask questions and more questions and why not some more questions lol.
Don't know where you live though so remember the time differences.
Have a great Tuesday.
eMAEstra Premium
Hi again Robert! Thanks for your help. You write that I "can create my own Blog Website here within WA"... Is a "blog website" something different than a "website"? Or is it just a website with serial "posts" about content you want to share with your audience? I am still not quite clear on on the "blog" concept--or what I might include--or not--in a blog... Is there "blog" protocol? Manners? do's and don't's? Thanks in advance. Peace, Marie

Loes Premium
Hello Marie,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

I was in the same boat as you are now, but I spent two months spinning my wheels answering all of the emails I was getting to join their internet group. Once I got to WA, I realized that everything was right here and I cancelled everything else. I am thinking of writing a blog "How a Newbie Became a Successful Entrepreneur. Good Luck and enjoy, it is great fun.

Kyle Premium
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! :)

Biggsta Premium
Great job on going Premium, you are going to love it. If you ever need help with anything, please don't hesitate to ask :) Good luck to you and I look forward to seeing your success here at WA!

Kyle Premium
How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Marie and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.
Kyle Premium
Hey Marie,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Marie and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

eMAEstra Premium
Kyle, I just stumbled onto a WA email and opened it...then I took the premium tour and upgraded...I have not been considering affiliate programs, but I'm curious None of these many emails have dates, so I have no idea when these messages were written. What's that about bonuses? 4 days from when? Did I miss out? I am eager to find out how I might make use of this site. Where should I start? Thanks in advance for your help Peace,Marie
Is there a way of making sure my screen name always displays as "eMAEstra" and NOT "EMAEstra"? Sorry to be picky, but it DOES matter to me!
Kyle Premium
Within the top menu you are going to see a big GREEN button called "Get Started Here". This is where you want to go to get your training, this is a 10 lesson task based course that is going to walk you through the process of getting your very own business up and running.

Here is the direct link: I know you are going to make some awesome progress very quickly with the training there and if you ever do have any questions, please do let us know. You have an entire community of support here at WA rooting for your success! :)
Kyle Premium
Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Marie! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Marie!
Kyle Premium
What's going on Marie? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)
DomW Premium
Hey Marie, how is it going?

Just noticed that you've not finished setting up your account yet. Quick tip, you get a lot more out of WA if you do. People will engage with you and be ten times more likely to reach out to you.

You don't have to add your own photo if you don't want, there are plenty of people here using the default ones!

Hope to catch up again soon. Let me know if you need any help!


P.S It took me a few weeks to come out of my shell when I first joined WA as well, but once I did, wow!
DomW Premium
Hey Marie, Welcome to WA!

I'm glad that you've joined, and I'm looking forward to catching up more later.

There's a lot of information coming your way soon, so I just wanted to give you a few tips for getting started here:

1. Fill out your profile. I know it's a basic thing, but it really helps you get engaged with the community and get the feel for the amazing spirit we have here.

2. Check out the "Get Started" training here: 3. Stop by my wall and let me know how you're getting on. I'll help you out if you have any questions: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/domw

4. (Bonus Tip) Enjoy yourself!
