UPDATE: Had a short hiatus (did a WAH gig that nearly made me NUTZ...but I'm much better now since I told them to stuff it) - and now she's baaaaack. YAY!

Missed all you guys terribly - I'm still an early Boomer, still a dreamer and ask a lot of questions. Just to fill in some of the newer ones....I'm a proud Mom and grammy of two (big kids now...how did that happen?), have a now 90 year old Mom two miles away, still in Florida, and still love gators....the reptiles, not the team. Still have Rufus in my backyard - he's about a 6 1/2 footer now - we give each other a lot of space and are great friends.

Have some new hare-brained ideas for a brand new blog, so, let's get to it, right? It's great to be back.

Hi Grammy! I love the fact your interests are so vast and broad! This is so refreshing! I sincerely wish you all the best and I hope we can support each other through any challenges.
A wee bit about myself - my boyfriend lives in Florida and we work for the same company but I'm in Canada - 5,500 mi to be exact! We couldn't be further apart if we tried! We have made this work for close to 2 years but it is time to take make some reality and be together 24/7 - I've decided to go back to the online world and make a successful career of this with him - baby boo needs her sweet niblette by her side.
I look forward to networking with you more GatorGal747! All the best,

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hey there Susan and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. It is great to have you here and I definitely look forward to working with you. My suggestion to you is to take action on what you learn as a good deal of the actual learning will take place during the action? phase.

Getting started is easy here at WA, we have a step-by-step course dedicated to walking you through getting up and running here:


If you have any questions, give me a shout. :)

Hi Susan, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell) or by private message if you are a premium member.

★How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.

☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Hi Nathaniell....just digging into all this material...I've sent Kyle a pm, but I'd like your input also. I'm thinking about creating a site that deals with female concealed carry. Am I asking for trouble doing something with firearms? I am NOT armed now, but this is a big topic in Florida and thought I might give it some legs, but don't need the ATF at my door. Just curious.

I don't think you are 'asking for trouble'. You can make a website about whatever you want. I would just be sure to put some kind of disclaimer on your blog, but that's just me being safe.

I would look into what types of affiliate programs you can find though, and maybe think about what you might like to promote on the site. I'm not sure if you can order guns online. Check out this webinar https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/finding-awesome-affiliate-programs

Maybe consider doing the "female self defense" niche, so it isn't specifically gun oriented, and will allow you to mold it in another direction if you run into issues with the firearm thing.

You can start off focused on concealed carry, and see where the site takes you.
