About GailKing1
Joined April 2016
I'm a 65 year-young granny who has "played around" with affiliate marketing for over 20 years - to no avail, as yet. Much of that is life getting complicated, but a good amount is just getting weary of all the info-overload, hype, and promises that never come true. I've yet to make any $$ online - and now, retired from owning my own professional massage therapy business, I'd like to supplement my fixed income. I love to write...and as such, will be endeavoring to author some e-books to put up on Amazon kindle. However, I'd love to incorporate that into my passion which is natural health and wellness: body, mind, and soul.
I'm still raising kids (grandchildren), have a homeless 17 yr. old friend of my grandson staying with me, and am a full time caregiver to my middle daughter who is physically handicapped (she's the joy of my life). Add to that the need and desire to have a supplemental income, and you have the words "full plate". But, as Jodie Victor always said (Amway crown diamond), "If it's going to be, it's up to me" ... and I built a thriving brick and mortar massage biz following his sage wisdom. Hopefully WA will add to that bounty and help me fulfill my desire to make money online.
GailKing1's Goals 3
Money Goals
I would be happy earning a mere $1500 a month additional income; I would be ecstatic earning THREE TIMES my monthly social security check amount! The time I'm willing to invest in my money-earning goals is at a minimal premium; my lifestyle and responsibilities here at home are at times overwhelming - but I've always believed one can achieve whatever one sets their mind on. So, here I go.

hi gail, thanks for the follow.
your sites look good.
i would change the bottom quote - you could start a brand from here
on the sad site. watch for block text - i just read the stress post and the first para is like a brick wall. you could do with piccies at the top of the post - guide as to what it is about - visual link.
good info - could do with a call to action at the end?
'what stress lessening techniques do you use ? use the comments section to let us know how you deal with it'
' do you feel stressed? let us know how you deal with it in the comments section'
don't forget to add a comments section, otherwise no-one can comment!!!
you can tell it is something you know about and like
have fun

Phil - thanks for the advice...fact is, I'm considering letting that site "go" because I'm focusing more on the other one right now plus, I'm not "sold" on the theme I've chosen and a bunch of other stuff...but I hear what you're sayin' and I've incorporated that kind of stuff in my other site/s. :)

Thanks, sizar;we all can use a little "luck". It works if you work it; the key is to take each lesson as it comes, in order, then do the "action steps" at the end of each lesson. That way, you'll keep moving forward toward success without getting information overload. Wa is the best learning platform if you want to be an affiliate marketer. Period. Be blessed with success.

Howdy from the Sunny Shores of the Bahamas...Great Bio and it seems to me that we have a similar story to tell Gail; BTW...I inspired a Gal to become a :"Direct Distributor" back in the middle 1970's while I just cheered her on from the sidelines and did not inspire myself too much!
What's up with that? LOL
Reply
GailKing1 Premium
Hi! Are you speaking of the notorious Amway (or Herbalife, or Melaleuca - 'cause I've "been there and done THAT" with all of 'em LOL)? Nice to know you're in the sunny shores...I'm in the bipolar state, OhiO. Here's hoping we don't stand on the sidelines here at WA.

Much thanks...Oh and I'm sorry to hear that you are in what you refer "Bipolar" as a State...trust me...we have our "ISSUES" too!

Stay Tight and Focused!

Much Success
Reply
GailKing1 Premium
Yep ... after Amway (which I loved), I went into Herbalife then Melaleuca...and years before that, when I was younger (dinosaur days), I sold tupperware, tiara glassware, beeline clothing (boy, that one really dates me!) and Home Interiors. I love sales, what can I say? :)

Reply
GailKing1 Premium
Thanks! I've actually begun a 3rd site...but that one isn't going public for awhile. I was thinking the other day about how many things I've learned by watching others...things like putting up drywall, running 220 electric, pouring cement LOL. I was never blessed with a handyman, even when I was married...then WHAM...an idea struck. What if there are other gals out there like me? A domain name came to mind when I thought of my "ex" (grin); I grabbed the domain name "How To Screw In A Lightbulb" A guide for gals who have no handyman, and guys who have no "handy".
I'm going to author it as "Kingsman, the handyman" LOL. I think both gals and guys will take how to advice better from a guy. Now I just have to find the right pic :)
What do ya think??

Reply
GailKing1 Premium
I do - kind of; I've got 3 up and all to the "same point", which is my categories chosen, content for 3 pages (according to the training) and now am tweaking the look and feel of each while researching content for each.
Just this morning I realized that one of my niches is kind of an eclectic "catch-all" and that each of my categories could be a niche all on it's own...so I may be "x-ing" that one off - not sure.
But if you want to visit, take a peek of the 2, and give feedback, I'd love that. You can message me what you think. The sites are:
http://www.evergreensurvivalist.com and http://www.overcomingsad.org
(just so you know, that one "eclectic catch-all" was a domain name I purchased LONG before I joined WA...the reason for my not having a narrow niche, I do believe LOL)

Hi, Roger; although I've played at the affiliate marketing game for years, I've never done anything with it - meaning I've not made dime one LOL. But here at WA, where the trainings and community stands behind you and takes you by the hand, I feel success is just around the corner! And yes...it IS a lot of fun!

I refuse to believe that you are 65 from that pic. Wow!
Yes you do have a full plate, but remember that the first person you need to take care of is you. If not you will not be able to take care of them. You are in the right place to do that. This program and the 400,000+ community members are here and dedicated to your success. Don't be shy, ask questions, there are no dumb ones.
I have the same passions as you. Cool!
I am personally offering my assistance if you need it, so you do not feel all alone here.
Best, Lori
Reply
GailKing1 Premium
Dearest Lori - I take AWFUL pics...always have. This is the ONLY pic I EVER took that was 1/2 decent...it was the day I married a guy I'd waited 14 1/2 years to get a proposal from...and I was "50" at the time. Altho my grandkids say I haven't changed much at all, we both know I probably have and they're just biased LOL. But people DO tell me all the time they don't think I look a day over 54; many times they think I'm the grandkid's mom - ...so ... maybe?? :)
Just wanted to be totally transparent because I'm serious when I say that NO PIC every taken was any good except this one! I kid you not- I remember the time they had to take THREE pics of me when I renewed my driver's license (very embarrassing!).
Be blessed with success! ~Gail

Hey Gail...just saying hello. Just wanted to let you know as well that there is about 1 day left I think, if you wanted to get that Premium membership at 59% off. It's a pretty good deal. If not, no worries. Just didn't want you to miss out by me not telling you.

Take care,

GailKing1 Premium
Thanks, Vince...I think I've got some change in a pot under my tomato plant that I can dig up (just kidding lol). I'm gonna do it...I'm just very conservative and don't like using $$ I may need for something else until my monthly stipend comes in (I'm retired - set income and all that jazz)...which is a huge WHY I'm trying my hand at affiliate marketing again (used to do the Squidoo lens thing, the Hub thing, and the article marketing thing to no avail.).

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Gail, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

Vince OMWV Premium
Hey Gail, just dropping by here. I did notice that you set up your profile.

Good thing you did. The reality is, those who actually take action (even if it's as little as setting up your profile fully) tend to succeed much more than those who don't.

You're on the right track!

Let me know if you have any questions :)

P.S. I really recommend going Premium if you haven't already. I've been Premium for over 2 years now and will always be. It's totally worth it and will just save you a lot of time, energy, and questions.

Take care!

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! :)
