About GDavies
Joined July 2018
I'm a freelance writer and a Canadian expat living in Guatemala. I'm also the work at home, homeschooling mom of three crazy boys and one teenage girl (who goes to school), so life keeps me on my toes.

Over the years, I've tried a lot of different ways to earn online. Back when Squidoo was a thing, I did very well with affiliate marketing there and was a Giant Squid. It was a bit devastating when it all came crashing down and I lost my monthly income. I swore I'd never make the same mistake again, with putting all my eggs in one basket.

So now, I make a point of doing a number of different things. I write for clients (books, articles, press releases), publish my own books, run a few websites/blogs, create courses, and also work as a tour guide and translator when necessary. In short, I do a lot. However, I need to learn more about learning online. Sometimes I feel like I've gotten stuck back in the Squidoo days and haven't upgraded my knowledge.

I'm looking forward to becoming successful once more, this time, with more diversity.

Hello Genesis and thank you for the follow. I am adding you to my network as well. With all the experience you have, you should do great here at WA! It's all about learning new stuff and the learning never really ends. I've been here for several months and I know I've only scratched the surface. Best of Luck!

Hi Davies, thanks for the connection! :)

Ohh...you mentioned Squidoo!!! that brings some memories for me :) I especially liked their gamification of the platform.
Yep, I myself came to the conclusion (after few burns) that putting all the eggs in one basket is not such a great idea ;)
So I also diversify my income (although with different activities than yours). I call it - MRI - Multiple Resource of Income.

Wishing you huge success in your journey! :)

That's one impressive Bio there I am impressed with your resume..

One day I will have to pick your mind on how do you do it? I am involved with just one website, curriculum creation, and a barbershop and I feel stretched!


Thanks for following and I will follow you back

Hello, Genesis. That's a very interesting name. Are you the first born in your family?

Apparently, I got a notification that you followed me way back on Sept. 12. I'm not sure why but it was directed to my spam file as were a few others.

Anyway, I have found you and want to give you a belated BIG WELCOME TO WA and to say thanks for adding me to your network. I have done the same.

After reading your bio I think you will definitely be able to "upgrade" your skills on the internet and make a difference with your online success.

All the best as you continue this journey and to your family as well.

I look forward to connecting from time to time and lets all,

Keep Moving Forward,
Wayne

Thanks for the follow. A fellow expat, eh? I am US born but have been in the Philippines full-time now since 2006, probably staying here forever. It's cheaper, but most importantly, there are far few people spending their lies watching me and then telling me what I am doing wrong ;-)

I'm also a big homeschool supporter. I raised two boys through the traditional USA public school system and by the time the second one graduated high school I swore I'd never subject another child of mine to that mess.

Hope you find what you want here on WA, I'm already impressed with your accomplishments and breadth of experience.

Best regards

Hi, Dave. I've heard good things about the Philippines for expats! Some of the foods are similar to Guatemala, too . . . like adobado. And yes, living the life YOU want is so much better. I can't see ever living in Canada again, now that I'm so laid back.

Cool profile, I am from Honduras and now live in the United States so I know how it is down there in Central America. We have a lot in common, I am a writer as well but only discovered I have that talent this year, so late bloomer I guess...lol.

Anyway just wanted to say hi, and good luck!

That's awesome that you've found your calling as a writer! I haven't made it to Honduras yet, but I do love Latin America.

Thank you, I am most likely going to move my book's website over to WA in the future to see if I can get some traction on sales. If you do go to Honduras, go to La Ceiba or the Bay Islands the most beautiful parts of the country.

Hi, Genesis! Wow! There's a huge difference between Canada and Guatemala!

We homeschooled ours too, so I know what you're going through!

It sounds like you have a good background for success online and you're in the right place to fill the gaps in your knowledge.

Wishing you even more success!

Hi there,

Guatemala must be interesting - I've never been anywhere in S. America..!

Totally agree with your comments about diversifying your income streams. I was with Squidoo for a while back in the day, but moved off into WordPress design and development. So WA is a diversification in revenue from my agency business..!

Anyway, best of luck with your business here :

Cheers,

Martin.

Hello Genesis And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

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

Have a great day.

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.

** Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Genesis **

At this very moment, you are exactly at the starting point of your journey and this is the "place" where myself and many other successful WA members got our start.

Looking around this website, I know it can be a bit intimidating and you are right, it can be - but all you need to focus on at this very minute is to:

// Fill out your profile bio (something short and sweet)
// Add a picture
// Familiarize yourself with whole WA site.

Have a browse around Wealthy Affiliate and start seeing what this community is really about.

Many come to this site seeking freedom. I know that's what I was looking for when I first became a member sometime back in June of 2012.

Yes, I have now been a premium member for many years and even though I have managed to crack the formula of making money online, I still remain a loyal member because here because there is no better community that the one you've just joined.

A Bit About Me

Like you (probably), I was sick of the "normal life".

Wake up, go to work, hate it, come back, watch TV, hate it, sleep, wake up and repeat.

While it's nothing to complain about (maybe just a bit), it's a life of "average" and I knew I deserved better - and you do too Genesis.

Making the decision to "start" is one of the best decisions to make when you are starting out and you did it - now it's time to put that motivation into action that gets the results you desire.

What do you want to get out of this Genesis ?

Knowing what you are here for will help align your goals and help you move forward with a sense of direction, which I promise you will help a lot when things get tough.

Why would things get tough? There's no easy wins here.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build a business online and not some easy-way-to-riches.

There's no such thing and hopefully, you're not here looking for quick-riches but rather to develop a set of skills which YES, can make you riches in the coming months if you do the necessary work.

Should You Go Premium?

That I would leave it up to you, but for now; you do not have to worry about that.

Simply start the training and then see for yourself if building an online business is something you want to commit to.

As I said, I have been a premium member for over 6 years now and I still find it valuable to me, maybe it will be the same for you or maybe not, only time will tell.

However, I'd suggest you make up your mind quickly about WA and get the discounted "bonus offer" for your first month as a premium member.

What Do You Get With "Premium"?

Ohhh, so, so much.

I'd be a shame to spoil it for you but I will leave you with this; it's where you "Wealthy" affiliates are made.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm online most of the day here in WA so I can get back to you quickly.

Just drop me a message below saying "Hello" when you read this so I know you're here ready to get to work.
