About GinaU1
Joined January 2018
Hello, Future Internet Super Stars! My name is Gina, and I live in Houston, Texas with my husband, teenaged son and our two Chiweenies, Jack and Winnie. I feel super blessed to have found WA! I am excited to be a part of a community that shares my enthusiasm for entrepreneurship that offers step-by-step training in creating an online business with an amazing community and support.

I have certifications in internet marketing and social media marketing, but zero hands-on experience. I have also never blogged before and don't consider myself much of a writer, but I am excited about the potential of improving my skills and hopefully creating an impressive site that will eventually allow my husband and I to retire early. That's the plan anyway:)

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to read my bio. I wish you all the best of luck in your online journey. Please reach out if you have any questions. I don't have all of the answers yet, but I will do my best to help!

Hi Gina and thank you for following me. The great thing about WA is that there is always someone around that can help you out when you get stuck or need an answer. Just remember to follow a simple strategy; work through the training and complete all the tasks before moving on to the next lesson, ask questions of the WA community when you need answers, write great content for your website on a regular basis and focus on your long-term goals. Wishing you every success with your online endeavours, Gary

It sounds like you have all the "learning" elements in place. Now it's just a matter of finding YOUR place to serve. Perhaps simply sharing your studies, insights and lessons learned, habits formed, successes achieved in your own personal battle to heal Sjogren' Syndrome - and simply make it easy for people to BUY the same stuff you are doing. To share the journey in healing together.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, Rob.

I have considered creating a website that chronicles my Sjogren's experience and will probably do something soon. When diagnosed four years ago, I couldn't find any blogs by anyone that was living a decent life with Sjogren's, so maybe mine will be a welcome one...who knows.

I was very impressed by your story, and love to see folks pull themselves up by their bootstraps...Who doesn't enjoy a great comeback story?

Again, congratulations on your achievements in life. Just goes to show you that if you want something bad enough, it will happen.

All the best!

Hi Gina, pronounced Jenna.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.
No, we do not all live in igloos and wear mukluks. LOL.

The reason I say that is that when I was in my teens, I did some telemarketing that reached out to Americans. No word of a lie, they really thought that that we lived that way. Not knowing that we had the tallest free standing structure in the World. The CN Tower.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to the most incredible Community that some of us call Wealthy Affiliate - The Open Education Project. You are already on your way to becoming a shining star.

Nice profile, nice introduction. Keep it updated often. This is your home base.

You can do everything and anything you want to do all from here.
Keep WA your main focus and learn first before removing the 'L.'

It will serve you well with your plans which are already defined.

Hey, listen.

Thank you for your kind words on a rather lengthy post that I wrote here. Considerate and honest feedback is the backbone to success in the online world. You already know this or you will shortly learn.

I wish you nothing short of total success in your journey moving forward. You have your direction, WA has all the tools.

Never hesitate to reach out if I can be of service to you. I enjoy reading copy and and making objective, yet constructive criticisms.

Once again, Welcome and thank you for your gratitude. It means a lot to me.

Kindest regards from Canada.

Paul.

Oh my goodness, Paul. I am blown away by your message. You are such a lovely writer, and I appreciate the warm welcome and kind words!

Too funny on the igloos and mukluks. It sounds a bit like the stereotype we Texan's have of wearing cowboy boots and riding horses.

Thanks again for the follow. I look forward to connecting and anticipate reading your future posts.

Wishing you continued success.

All the best,
Gina

Hi Gina (pronounced Jenna).

I love you guys & Gals from Texas. See my profile picture. Probably not an authentic Cowboy hat but the cowboy boots worn underneath are real.

My son is attending University In Calgary.

No, no igloos or mukluks there also, LOL, but the tradition of the wild, wild west lives and thrives there too. It is an incredible place to be during The Calgary Stampede.

Kindest regards, Gina.
Your grandmother is proud.

Get some rest. I need to do the same. I have had a very interesting day.

Peace, love and gratitude is sent from Canada.

Touch base again soon.

Continue to shine brilliant.

Paul.

Thank you, Paul. I have a friend from Canada. She is hilarious and one of the most direct people I have ever known and a very close friend.

Houston has a yearly Livestock Show and Rodeo, and she told me about the Canadian equivalent -- The Calgary Stampede. I thought that was interesting considering its Canada and I was unaware there was interest there. I guess we do learn something new every day.

Thanks for connecting and hope you have a beautiful day!

Thank you, Ray. I haven't been working as hard as I should lately on my health. We have been on vacation and I cheated a lot on my diet. Oh well, gotta live a little too.

Thanks for you prayers and enjoy those fur babies. We have two and I missed them so much while we were away. Ours also have us trained:)

Take care, Gina

Hello Gina and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Yeah, it just snowed here again over night. Most of it melted today, but I keep thinking it is going to stop snowing and be spring. That is Pittsburgh, PA weather. I thought Texas was always warm or hot. If you get a chance follow me on Google+ https://plus.google.com/115902574665958273405

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, Gina, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be among the top 200 anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site (no seriously I do!) and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 6,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

Thanks, Keisi. I appreciate the encouragement. I read your bio, you are an interesting guy! So sorry for the broken heart. We have all been there, but I am sure someone special is just around the corner. Good luck with your move to Panama! Sounds exciting!

You're welcome, Gina and thank you very much for taking the time out of your very busy day to read my bio. I do have several books in production at this very moment. Before you ask, yes I will let all of the members of WA know more when I know more.

THE Plan is going so very well that I can see so much light at the other end of the tunnel that I can see the light is NOT from a train coming at me from the other side of the tunnel. So, wherever someone special is, I'll know when or if it will happen. Thank you for the encouragement!

Best regards,

Keisi.

Hello Gina!

Congratulations on going Premium here at WA.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend it live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.
