About Feochadan
Joined June 2019
In my 53 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 become a freelance paralegal and then to start 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 stack wall) house only to find that I had much more interest in actually working (at ANYTHING) 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 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 savor every little bit of it!

Superb goals Darlene! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

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.
Robert

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. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll

Welcome to premium!

So happy that you have decided to take this step in your journey towards achieving your dreams. You will gain so much from being here.

The training here is great and you should follow it to the letter.

The community here is the very best I have personally encountered. (and I have tried a few)
It is NOT a race, if you treat it as one, then you will only cheat yourself. I hope to bump into you along your path.

Once again, welcome aboard!! Blessings ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

Thank you very much for your words of wisdom. I have definite perfectionist leanings and tend to push myself until I'm frazzled. I've learned here that occasionally taking a break to reflect and regroup has been necessary.
