About Gerlinde
Joined June 2016
Hi guys! I am a German-speaking Italian (I live in the German minority part in Northern Italy). I've always been a secretary (the proper word would be an administrative assistant :)) in my life (and a really good one ;-)) but I felt that there must be more... and quit my 9 - 5 (or better 8 - 2) and very well paid job years ago! Everybody called me crazy... but that's me: Always searching for answers in my life and very often choosing the difficult way...

I love travelling and getting in touch with other cultures and languages. I love Canada, the US and Ireland (Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and much more are definitely on my bucket list)! I made several trips there and was searching for the amazing American Indian culture!
In Ireland, I took a professional bartender course last year just for fun and it was a really great and positive experience in my life!

Living in a log house by the lake? Yes, please!! :-D
Owning a little farm? Also yes! :-D

I would love to combine my passion with an online business and living a life as a Digital Nomad. So that's the reason why I'm here! It's great to find help within a community so I'm sure I will not be disappointed... :-D

Maybe I should add my hobbies: Internet, Pinterest, jewelry making, sewing, reading, learning 3 D animation with Blender, enjoying the nature with my dog, watching McLeods Daughters over and over again :), playing the violin - ok, not anymore, this was yeeears ago when I was forced to do so ;-) Now I'm having more fun with my keyboard instrument...
And I am very crazy about Log Houses and American Indian Crafts - I put them on my niche list! :)


Happy learning to all,
Gerlinde

Thank you for the follow. I wish you much success in your business. Living in a log house by a lake would be amazing. Waking up with the view of the lake, and the tranquility to clear your mind every morning before one takes on the challenges of the day. Best wishes to you.

I want to be just like you when I grow up. You have one of the best biography's that I have read on WA. I am now following you on facebook and Pinterest. I recently joined both due to WA so I am not even sure where the bathroom is in either, but like everything else in WA, I sure that I will end up finding my way around...

Keep living the dream...!

Hi Tony!
Thanks for following me on facebook and Pinterest, too! I will return the favor, of course...
Not sure about my bio, I wish, it would be different sometimes! It's not easy quitting a good job without having a plan! Now I would do it in a different way, maybe...
Thanks for your kind words and all the best!

Hi Cate!
Thank you for your kind words and offering me to come to Austraila! :) It's one of my dreams exploring that country, too... :D

Reading your bio I find myself in many things! What touched me was the sentence: "At the end of the day you learn to rely on yourself and what you have learnt throughout the years and to trust your instincts and your own efforts."

I've learned this lesson now... I always relied on others too much and did not trust my instincts, until I lost everything... Now I'm back on track and with WA in the right place! :)

Thanks, Cate, and I wish you great success in your life!
Cheers, Gerlinde

Nice of you to stop by Gerlinde, in my family home back in Ghana, we have moringa trees. Many years ago they were used as goat feed and boy the goats loved them... Due to recent research and studies, the humble moringa tree has become a functional food for humans too. It wasn't popular at all back then.
On my last visit to Ghana, my mum gave me some seeds to grow back in the uk. I did in a tiny pot and suffering from stunted growth. One did mange to make an appearance in my back garden but like with most plants in the temperate region, the leaves die and its been literally the same height for the last 2 years. Green and lovely in summer and completely gone in winter.
It was a wishful thinking on my part..

Lovely to meet you and when you decide to visit UK, you are welcome to visit.

Wishing you the very best on your journey here at WA. I have also followed you on Pinterest. :-)

Thank you, Abs! You are very kind! Thanks for inviting me to the UK!
I always love it when someone knows Moringa and its benefits! The fresh Moringa is so different to the dry one! Yes, we have trees here, too, but they don't grow... only because of the Moringa trees I would love to live in a warmer country! :)
I didn't get the message from Pinterest, yet, but will follow you back, of course!

Wishing you all the best to you and your family! :)
Thanks a lot, Gerlinde

Hi Gerlinde,

as our success grows we're getting more and more confident in what we're doing. And I believe, that if we stick to it, success will come, sooner or later.

Your bio is quite amazing. You seem to be a person with a very positive attitude. Keep up your good work!

I wish you a great 2017 :)

Hi Gerlinde,
Thanks for the follow. My wife Kae is a Creek Indian. I call her Princess Blue Sky. She is into sewing big time. I appreciate your love for log cabins. I am in real estate and I sold a log cabin not long ago. Very nice place. Keep up your great attitude. Bobby

Hi Bobby!
Thanks for you kind words!
I have a deep interest in the Native American Heritage, I don't know why... So you are very lucky to have your wife Kae! :-) Sewing is great, and I also admire the Native American beadwork... I LOVE it!
You sold a log cabin! Great! Would love, to own one... So, you did read my profile very carefully, thanks for that! :-)
Have a great day, Bobby

Hello Gerlinde,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a couple of months ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost five months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Gerlinde, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Gerlinde.

I'm wondering: English is not my first language, but I would like to make my WA promoting website in English in order to reach more people... I'm hesitating doing this, but now I started it anyways, because I think I will get enough help or suggestions within the community... am I right?

First off, your English is quite good! You are going to be just fine and you only get better at something (like learning a language) one way, by practicing.

Also, if you understand the training you will be just fine. You can create your websites here at WA in any language that you want and market to any audience. :)

You are going to be just fine Gerlinde! If you need a hand with anything going forward, let me know and I will give you a hand.
