About FaeKuhn
Joined December 2017
I am 47 years old with 3 boys who are 21, 18 and 7. Two of my boys are serving in the military. I am a US Navy veteran myself. I work full time as a Veteran Employment Representative for the state of PA and finding ways to support our military and veterans is my 2nd passion in life.

My #1 passion is my love for cross stitching. It started out as a hobby many, many years ago but through certain events blossomed into an obsession and addiction (but I can think of many worse things to be addicted to..lol)

I have a Facebook group where I am an admin of over 4000 stitchers internationally that share my same passion of this wonderful art (and yes, it really is an art). This group of people has become like another family to me. I do many events online as well as host retreats once a year in various places to bring us together for a weekend of fun and companionship.

It is this group that inspired my first website that I just started a little over a week ago. It is not an easy site to monetize so it will not be my big money maker, but it helps me to further promote things I do and things I make for others. This site is a stepping stone for me to learn on and then move onto building my WA site that hopefully will bring me the financial freedom I seek!

Hi Fae!

Thank you and your sons for their service! Nice to meet you! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

P.S. I was learning how to do cross-stitch some years ago, but didn't keep up with it. My biggest problem... getting stuck with the needle. LOL

I'll think about it.

My mother was a professional dressmaker/designer from home. So I understand the sewing thing a bit...

Hi Fae, nice to meet you here. It looks like your son is a Marine. My husband is a former Marine.

I hope you are doing well here!

Hello Jessica,

Yes, my middle son just graduated Marine boot camp back in November :) I have a son in the Navy as well. Please tell your husband thank you for his service. And there is no such thing as a "former" Marine...once a Marine, always a Marine! :)

I am doing well. Just found WA a couple weeks ago and it's so exciting ..learning so much!

Hope you are doing well here also :)

True, I always struggle with how to phrase it. I don't want to say he "was" either! I guess "is" works even though he is a veteran now!

He served in Iraq during the Fallujah era as well as on the East Coast in Virginia and D.C.

WA is amazing! I keep encouraging my husband to do a Veteran's website...I think he might someday!

Thanks Fae.

I plan on starting a veteran's website soon myself. I did 4 years in the Navy and now I work as a veteran employment rep for the state of PA. And one of the things that gets me so angry and worked up is my inability to be able to connect with veterans that are transitioning out of the military. The TAP program that is in place now is a JOKE! It does nothing! I saw a saying not long ago in a veteran's facebook page that said "We train them how to go to war but we do not train them how to come home". That is soooo true! Once I have my niche website going a bit better, I am going to work on creating a website for supporting veterans and have thought about trying to do something like a http://Change.org petition to fight for a better transition program. Maybe your husband and I should team up and build one together! :)

I will tell him! Yes, it has been so, so, so frustrating as he tries to get better jobs. He even went to college with his Post 9/11 G.I. Bill and did a double major graduating with honors in both! Nobody cares. It is almost as if his military service does more harm than good on a resume honestly. It is really aggravating and stressful.

I hear you! Our gov't says they want to help Vets, but yet does not give me access to the resources to be able to do my job to help them! Do you have career job centers there?
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Yes, we do...but they are not very useful. We have very high unemployment here yet we have high salaries on average also. It is a strange economy. We have the most diverse school district in the country here (yes, even more so than New York!) due to massive immigration with over 200 languages spoken. We have oil industry jobs but good luck getting one.

We are lucky. We both work for state government. My job is wonderful but his is stressful and very underpaid. He coordinates prisoner transport to and from the courts. He is a dispatcher for the Troopers unit that does court security and transport so he tells each officer where to go, which prisoners to pick up, where to take them, decides which holding cells they will be in, monitors the cells, cameras, remotely opens elevators and doors, monitors the security cameras for the court rooms, gets calls from judges and attorneys, coordinates with U.S. Marshals etc. It is a huge job and he coordinates over 100 moves per day. He gets little support or encouragement and it is a difficult place to work down in the basement of the courthouse with no windows. He has not been able to get another job even that pays less (and he already makes less than I do anyway).

Hi, Fae! I had to come and have a look at your bio after that nice comment on mine! Thank YOU for your continued service to our service men and women!

Most certainly it is a family that keeps on giving, and I do my part as possible from afar. I spend most of my time in Dubai these days but do work from other locations too...

You are a member of a high power site here that will help you monetize all the skills and experience you obviously have. There is a learning curve, as Robert mentions below, but nothing that can't be handled.

I am just in the process of setting up mentoring groups by subject matter and niches so you may want to have a look at that (my last 2 blog posts)...

It is very nice to meet you and I wish you the best with your online adventures! I look forward to reading about your successes here!

Cheers!

Dave,

Thank you! I just took a look at your mentoring blogs and I am all for it and welcome the help! I think I can do great things and a lot of people I know within my niche on Facebook are excited about my new site and I want to keep that excitement going and make it something that works for them and me!

I look forward to seeing how this mentoring idea progresses and as I progress in my knowledge and success, I definitely want to help others do the same!

Hello Fae and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous internet experience 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 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy the last day of the year.

Yes, I am seeing there is a LOT for me to learn, but I think I found the best possible place to learn. I have browsed a little on your blogs and when I have a bit more time to really read, I definitely do plan on checking them out! Thank you!

No probs.
Just choose the ones you believe will help you now and the rest can wait until as and when you have the time.
I don't really expect anyone to read them all.
When you type a question into your Question Box at the top of your page you could very well see one or two of my blogs in the list.
Enjoy your Tuesday.

David,

I think you are absolutely right in that I have found the one place that can help me succeed. I have never seen anything as real as this for being able to have an online business ..to have people that can help me do it when I need the help. It's pretty awesome.

There is so much I want to learn as fast as I can, but you are right in that I need to make sure I take my time and not get too overwhelmed...which at the moment I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I want to get more content posted, but I work full time as well as having a 7 year old at home so my time is limited. But hopefully I can find a balance that works. I look forward to being successful in this however long it takes!

Hi Fae!
Thanks for your response. I totally understand your situation. You have to find a balance that will work for you.

A possibility is that you can outsource content writers for a small fee. Sites like https://www.fiverr.com/ offer such services.

Thank you Fae for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

Thanks...I have had to rethink my goal of getting my Psychology degree and while it was a hard one to decide not to pursue, it's the right decision and with the help of WA, I have new goals to focus on now that I think will be more beneficial to me and the future of my family.

Merry Christmas and wishing you much success in the new year!

Do or Die :) lol When my son was home after bootcamp a couple weeks ago and was doing recruiters assistance duty, he had a major come up to him and say Semper Fi and asked my son if he knew what he was supposed to say back. My son said no and that is when the Major told him he was supposed to say "Do or die". My son liked that and said "I definitely can say that!"

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! :)

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !
