About Feochadan
Joined June 2019
In my 52 years I have had many jobs, careers and down-right cooky adventures! I love to try different things and although this has made my friends and especially my family question my sanity, I prefer to take the road less traveled.

I started off in college taking computer programming as that was a hobby of mine as a teenager but dropped out after the first semester to set up a database for a mutual funds company (enter my time selling mutual funds as well). I then decided to move from the tiny community I was living in to the "big city" - Calgary, Alberta where after many temp jobs to test the waters became a corporate paralegal. This took me to becoming a free-lance paralegal and then to starting my own rural blue-box recycling program.

After getting tired of the rat race, I decided to try out the homesteading thing. Yep, I packed up what was necessary and moved across the country to my own piece of land and started building a cordwood (or stackwall) house only to find that I had much more interest in actually working (at ANYTHNG) than my husband did. End of marriage #1.

After marrying husband #2 (a criminal defense lawyer) in a nearby town, we both decided that there were many more opportunities in the newly created northern Canadian territory of Nunavut. I went back to my beginnings as a paralegal but soon moved on to become a program administrator in community informatics and international diplomacy and a leader in the North American region (NARALO) of ICANN, attending 3 international conferences a year and promoting community needs withing the ICANN architecture. After about 5 years of that harried and extremely dog-eat-dog, confrontational milieu I faced total burnout and my life went into a downward spiral. I needed to de-stress and slow things down.

After living in Canada's Great White North for nearly 15 years, I decided to move back down south to Nova Scotia. To the middle of NOWHERE in Nova Scotia, in fact, where I now have a small farm, raise Highland cattle, chickens and various other critters and work from home. Although Husband #2 decided the location in Nova Scotia as he had to live near water (I'm on an island with a total population of less than 500) he decided he preferred to stay in the rat race of Nunavut and wanted no part of it. Start the worst part of my life where my self worth was taken down to negative numbers. End of marriage #2.

So, here I am, back to the bucolic life and ENJOYING EVERY BIT OF IT! It is wonderful to be back to my roots and back to nature. Wealthy Affiliates has provided me with the support I needed in its wonderful community and a way to provide for myself and be FREE! I absolutely love what I am doing, love the local community as well as the wonder, supportive community in WA. I think I have finally found my niche and certainly a heaping teaspoon of happiness!

Life is a journey and I am going to savour every little bit of it!

Hi fellow Canadian:) . Thanks for the follow. I just read your profile. Sounds like you’ve had an interesting adventure! Nunavut... I have always wanted to go there I must say... I want to eventually go live somewhere slow paced.. I don’t live in a big city but I do live on the city and have all my life... one of my goals is to move up north from where I’m living right now... anyhow nice to meet you 🌸😊

So curious about your handle, Feochadan, quite a mystery. Hmm.
Anyways I'm following you and this shall be fun.
You have lived an interesting life, I know how errors of commitment can be costly. Time and commitment are lost because we follow external factors like other people's influence.

We do not yet know how to live from our own heart, which is our seat of consciousness. Our real being is all internal as our true beautiful and alive, pure and joyful selves really do live there.
Glad to meet
you,
Suzay

Hi, just wanted to stop by and thank you for the follow!

You've certainly had a whirlwind of a life! I don't think very many people would have perservered or adapted to change quite well, but you seem to have taken it all in stride! That's impressive!

I'm glad that you're enjoying your journey here at WA, and yes, having the freedom to be your own boss, doing what you love is priceless! It's a joy I hope to experience soon!

I wish you continued success in your endeavors!

Hi Darlene,

I was interested to read your profile message, you descriptive style is very good.

I glad to hear you are enjoying what you do now. It must make all the not-so-good-times seem worth it, if you know what I mean. I too have had numerous jobs in various industries but I have no regrets or feelings of, if I had done this or not done that etc. Those things are negative to me and achieve nothing.

I am new to WA and making slow progress but I know why and it will change next month, when I shall have much more time.

I wish you every success and happiness.

Thanks for following me. Your life has been an adventure. Although you wouldn't have gotten to where you are at if you didn't experience all the previous things. I too have gone to the bottom of the barrel and have risen a couple of times. I now know what I need to do in life to make myself happy. If not I won't be of any use to anyone else. Take care.

Hello Darlene ... thank you for the follow. Kind a sounds like you've left no stone unturned when it comes to figuring out what you want to be when you grow up. You should have no problem finding a niche or two. Have you ever considering writing a book about your adventures?

Your background and experience will serve you well here at WA. Have your programming skills given you an advantage in moving up the Affiliate Marketing learning curve?

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hiya Dennis - LOL - I've nothing like the computer experience that you have but that html coding that I hated learning in the way back has served me well here! You're right that I haven't found it difficult to find a niche - just hard to narrow it down to one (actually I went with 2 - couldn't help myself!)

I loved reading your profile! You've definitely had an interesting life and its just getting better!

All the best to you as well!

You have had your ups and downs Darlene.
I was born in the countryside and worked on the land all over Scotland and with Highland Cattle as well.
Although they look kinda fierce they really are wonderful quiet animals and are quite happy to go about their daily business of eating and sleeping lol.

I would early love to go back to my roots but needs must and after being made redundant for the third time I went to College then on to University and after graduating was head-hunted by our Civil Service to go and work for our Government.

After a few years I got tired of that and took early retirement and here I am today ten years on with wealthy affiliate.

You get stuck, you get in touch and I will do my best to help.
Enjoy your Wednesday but now as its gone 9 pm here its time I was off this machine.
Take Care.

Hello Darlene And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

You are most welcome! I wish to caution you though....this is not a race! Proceed at a pace you find comfortable. There is a ton of information to soak up! Try to do at least a little each day, taking each lesson in stride...don't attempt it all at once...even professional mountain climbers work in short, manageable stages.

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! :)

Hey Darlene and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Kyle, co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate and I am here to help you along the way. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do let me know.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(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.
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways Darlene, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,

Kyle

Hi Darlene, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am Stefan and I guess you remember me from the blog My Room is My Office! :)

I'm here to help you get started with WA and most importantly, help you make money online!

The first thing I recommend you to do is to start your Online Entrepreneur Certification Course (Level 1).

Just click on this link to start your first lesson. It's completely free! The course will help you understand how affiliate marketing works and show you step by step how to set up the foundation for your online business.

I recommend completing all the tasks to maximize your chances of success.

If you have any questions, you can reply to this message and I will help you out personally.

Kyle, the founder of WA will also get in touch shortly to offer you his support.

You can also ask questions in the community through the live chat or inside the "Getting Started" classroom. People here are super helpful, and will probably answer your questions within a minute or less.

If you join the premium membership within the first 7 days, you'll get some cool bonuses:

Bonus 1 - get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your premium membership.

Bonus 2 - 1-on-1 support from me - You can private message me with questions and ask for feedback on your website and business!

Bonus 3 - 4 Week LIVE Niche Case Study Series - Watch a professional internet marketer build a live niche website in real time! All steps are thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. The total length of the videos is 4+ hours.

You can easily get overwhelmed with so much information here, so I highly recommend you start slowly with the first lesson and take one step at a time.

Remember, this is a long-term project, and so there is no need to rush things at this time.

PS. If there's one thing that I want you to remember:

TAKE MASSIVE AND CONSISTENT ACTION TOWARDS YOUR GOALS.


I wish you great success, and I hope you enjoy the journey!


All the best,
Stefan
