About GwynnGriffin
Joined October 2014
Hello, WA Community! First off, if you're reading these words, I'd like to just say "Thanks!" for taking the time to find out a bit about me =] I'm not a young pup anymore, but in this season of my life I'm reinventing many aspects of myself due to a longterm illness that's been a challenge now for nearly a decade. I'm a very lucky mom to four grownup kids, my three sons plus a beautiful daughter to boot :) Music has been a centerpiece in this world of mine for as long as I can remember, and pre-illness, I sang and played my heart out many times each week and dusted my days with the sweet powdered sugar of teaching music lessons to eager (mostly!) young players. I'm still quite involved in the music world because of a wonderful man named Kim (kinda like Johnny Cash's "Boy Named Sue") who composed his way into my life three years ago and has been taking me on musical extravaganzas ever since.

Although I've always considered myself a spiritual person, though not religiously affiliated since college, my awareness of my spiritual self has waxed and waned during the years of a hectic life of music and child-raising. But long about six months ago, I started pouring lessons and knowledge and wisdom and goodness into my brain at an explosive rate... that's when magical things started happening to an astounding degree, leading me here to Kyle and Carson and all of you in this "family" just last night. I can't describe how perfectly right WA feels to me, even though I'm just beginning. But perhaps some of you can feel it in the energy that's flowing wildly within me as I write to you ~ I have no doubt some of you feel it =]

Like many or even most of you reading this, I've dabbled in my fair share of business opportunities, trying to add something more to the making-ends-meet challenge that we all seem to face at some time in our lives. Until last night, I was full-on, gung-ho with a different company, whose name shall remain unspoken and untyped. But the upsells and hard sells became distressing to me, though I wasn't about to let go of my decision to make this online business venture finally work. Last night, a Google search for a tidbit of information resulted in my finding this Community, and suddenly I feel like I've just arrived at home. It's OUR time to flourish, and I couldn't be more pleased and grateful that you and I will be flourishing together!

In the Light of an Unbroken Road,
Gwynn Griffin

Hello Gwynn! What a lovely bio you have written. Thank you for sharing yourself with us so we can get to know you. I believe that this helps us to be more precise in the encouragement or constructive 'help' that we can extend.

Hi Gwynn, that's a VERY interesting bio. Music always played a big role in my life, too. And to this day, I've always been involved in music in some way (playing in bands, spinning records as a DJ, producing electronic music with my computer.) Now I'm heading towards sound design (which is like music on a cellular level:-D).
Great to have you in the community!

The best of success in your IM journey!

Hey Gwynn, good to have you as a new member. And you are so right when you said you are finally "home" in WA. So many of us have gone through that "school of hard knocks" online that when we do find WA, it's as if all those other scams were slowly pointing us to this community.
After all, we now know how to recognize an online opp. as being honest and legit!.

Thanks for the follow.......... :) Tom

It's easy to sense good stuff exuding from a fine person, especially one who has a penchant for fly fishing. One of my favorite movies was "A River Runs Through It," then I found out when I started dating my fiancé that he orchestrated the music for it!

How's your journey here at WA coming along? Just wondering what you've decided to focus on for your niche; you have so many interests--it must have been a touch decision! Looking forward to getting to know you in the coming months, Gwynn

I have my BMEd and MM and am an organist. I also play flute and tinker on a few other instruments as well.
Diana
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
You're being too humble, cuz I know that with a BMEd alone you're required to be at least proficient in every instrument! I've enjoyed working with a number of organists over the years; flute and organ is such a popular combo around here, especially in churches, but of course you've known that forever. Too bad you can't play your flute and organ at the same time =] What are your other favorites for tinkering? The craziest one for me was a summer of playing bluegrass music on standup bass while singing tenor harmony. That was a brain challenge for me, but you could probably do it easily since you organists have four separate brains going at the same time! I'm in awe of your talent... So happy to connect with you, Diana :-)

You are funny! I'm lucky to have one brain work at all! The bluegrass experience sounds like fun! I have been trying to learn the banjo. There is a flutist at church. We do play together several times a year for the services. We will stay in touch. :) Diana

Hey, Randy ~ Just curious where on the West Coast you are; I lived in Hillsborough while at Burlingame HS, then in Isla Vista for college at UCSB. My Dad is still in San Carlos. Lots of family in CA =] Gg

DoubleTap Premium
Ey there Gwynn, I'm down in Southern Ca out in the Inland Empire. I grew up in Central Ca around 90 miles inland of Oakland around Modesto. I've also lived in Pt. Loma, San Diego for a few years in my college days.

I used to deliver gasoline to the little 76 station there in Isla Vista back in my tanker-yankin' days. I've been in and around the Santa Barbara area many, many days and/or nights. We still cruise through there several times a year. Back in May we drove through Burlingame and San Carlos on our way to Pier 39 and surrounding area. So, we're a little familiar with your area up north.

These days we stay away from the busy coastal areas as much as possible and hit the mountains and streams, fishing and camping as much as possible!

Hope your week is starting out great!!!

Randy

I'm in Northwest Connecticut where we're having a beautiful, mild day today :-) Just got back from a week in FL for health treatments; it was colder there last week than it is here - go figure! Yes, meeting our President has been a treat each of the three times I've been able to shake his hand and even hug him. Contrary to much current opinion, I consider him to be a very strong humanitarian leader; but we won't talk politics any more than that ;) Hope you're out hitting those golf balls if you're able to today... Enjoy! Gwynn

It's ok - I think the same of the President - it's a hard job, especially when you're dealing with "the other side". I am beginning to think there should be no parties; either that or an honest to goodness third party. Anyway, this is neither the time nor place for discussions such as that.
I hope your health is ok - take care.

Hello Isabella ~ So glad you decided to come back to WA so now we're here together =] How wonderful that you're able to still impart skills and wisdom to younger people in your life! Your idea about turning your teaching into a siterubix website is an excellent one, as there are certainly unlimited numbers of students who need tutorial help. Perhaps you could offer your teaching services at little or no cost ("pay what you can") and let the affiliate links bring some income your way. Just a thought :-)

Happy November to you there in England from my little spot in northwest Connecticut. You may be retired, but you have so much to give, and I'm very happy to be able to know you as the months continue on. Sending you all goodness, Gwynn

Hi Gwynn,

It makes my heart sing when someone stumbles in, I read there bio and just like that, I know they are one of those that will make it happen.That's You!

I don't have to tell you you're in the right place because you already know.

I've been around the block myself with the false truths in the promises of online success, and like you, I exited the training that would not have given me what I needed when the time arrived.

This is no different then anything else in life that takes real effort to get results. There is a percentage that comes into play and the numbers never lie. Everyone doesn't make it hear and the truth is the percentage of people that do make is probably very low because it takes work. There is no quick and easy way out.

I knew it in my knower that WA was where I get off the carousel and like wise felt as if I had found my way home.

"She must have been reading my mail" is what I said when I read those words. I've been here for four months and feel stronger today and more convinced then ever that this is it. The passion to move forward grows day by day for me.

Kyle and Carson have created a place of possibilities for people to make their dreams come true.

It's so sad for me to see people come in with nothing but expectations of having something handed to them. They're doomed from the start.

You have a real knack for expressing yourself in your writing and that is going to carry you as far as you want to go in this business. Writing is the one most important things we do and the biggest asset you could have in this place. Writing is what connects us.

As I plan on spending some time here in the years ahead I look forward to following your progress.

Wishing you blessings in the journey ahead!

Wayne

PS, I've raised four children myself, three boys who are now proud young men and one daughter that has given me two grandchildren.

Well, Wayne, it doesn't get much better than this in the encouragement department or the motivation aisle either =] Thank you with a big, open heart for such a welcome. And we each have My Three Sons plus One, how cool is that? I'm running behind in the grandchildren world, but my time will get here when a few more stars move into bright alignment, I have no doubt :-)

Same here in the plan to hang around at least a few more years, so we'll have plenty of opportunities to get to know one another. For now, my thanks again for a stellar "howdy" and may all goodness, blessings and Light be hanging around your shoulders to remind you we are now officially "connected"! Gg

Hi Gwynn,

thanks for the follow and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate (WA)!

I agree with you. WA has that special extra what makes you feel "home" with any question, idea and progress of your business. I've tried my fair share of programs as well and besides a good handful of upsells, it always felt like that some big piece is missing.

Wishing you and your family all the best and if there's something I can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask me.

Take care,
Nicole

Hello Gwynn ... thank you for the follow. Let me assure you that you have stumbled onto the best internet marketing training platform on the web.

No hype or under delivered promises here ... just the truth about what it takes (and how to do it in great detail) to start and grow your very own internet home business. Kyle and Carson are the real deal. Check out my Blog "Don't Call Them Gurus".

Your enthusiasm bubbles over in your Profile and that will help you work your way up this very steep learning curve. It will not be easy, but with diligent perseverance and a lot of patience you will find your gift and grow it into a thriving business.

Hi! Is that the real Obama or did you have that picture taken in a wax museum? Also, much love for the Sesame Street photo!
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
Aw, I love that you love the Herry Monster photo! You're the first person to comment on it, so you win the kind heart prize of the day... all the biggest, warmest meditations and blessings my heart can send out to you =]

And yes! It's the real Obama, taken the first of the three times I've been able to shake his hand and give him a hug, honest and true. He definitely doesn't feel like anything close to wax ;-)

I salute you in presenting the concept of the Business Avatar; different, but very practical and logical. It seems like a really good way of perceiving our "customers," so you have my appreciation for the introduction to this term. Looking forward to watching you grow and prosper!

Long live Sesame Street,
Gwynn

Bart87 Premium
Haha, I'm sure the others were so captivated by the Herry photo that they simply forgot to leave a comment! Did you get to take him home as well or did the two of you go separate ways at the end of the day? Anyway, I hope Herry's become a little more confident over the years. He's always had a voice to die for (check out his songs on YouTube).

So you've met the real Obama *three* times? I haven't even met the wax version once myself! Did you manage to run into some of his bodyguards too? Better watch out with these folks! http://io9.com/the-white-house-responds-to-the-creepy-alien-body-guard-461566624

The business avatar is definitely a great - if not essential - tool and my advice would be to make the most out of it. Thank you for all the kind words by the way; I hope to see more of you in the future too!

All the best,
Bart

Thank You for following me here at WEALTHY AFFILIATE:

I have found WA to be one of the best training programs you can find on the internet to help you move forward with any home business or website. The program is designed for anyone, from the newbie to the seasoned expert.

Kyle’s video tutorials have helped me get one of my websites ranked within the top search engines and remains there today. This the proof that the WA training program can make a difference in any business. All you need to do is just follow the courses step-by-step.

Let's face the fact…

We are here to help each other succeed!.

Hi Gwynn, you got me curious. what kind of music do you play and which (if any) instrument?
Ron.
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
Hi Ron ~ I've played a very wide range of music over my life, from pop to classical to bluegrass to musical theater and lots of styles in between, mostly on my trusty flutes =] My flute family includes "regular" C-flute, piccolo, alto flute, bamboo flutes, ocarinas, penny whistles, crystal flutes, a ceramic flute, Native American flutes, a really cool antique flute made in London in about 1853, and probably one or two I'm leaving out! Are you also a musician down there in South America? Are you trained as an aviation engineer? Hoping to see and read about your progress in short order =] Thank you for the note of connection, Gwynn
Reply
Heroba Premium
Hi Gwynn, That’s an impressive array of music styles! I like the flute, it delivers a delicate sound with a strong character and it fits in with any style.
I play the saxophone, lately not as much as I would like. The band I played in sort of dissolved a few month ago when the bar/restaurant we played at closed down, after the owner died. A shame actually as we developed our own style a mix of old school jazz and the sound of the Caribbean.
In aviation I’m a fully licensed dispatcher, worked as a station manager for KLM all over the world and have been an operational consultant for various airlines and three start-up airlines in the region.
When the last project ended I found WA and decided to give this a go. I like it but when a new aviation project comes around I will have to dedicate my time to that.
Meanwhile I play my sax in the garage again :)
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
Hooray for playing the sax (alto? tenor?) again, in the garage or anywhere else =] So sad the owner of the restaurant died, but would you and your band consider playing for the elderly? If all of you really miss it and you're finding it difficult to play at other restaurants, I can assure you that older folks in Independent Living communities (or the SA equivalent) are hungry for good music, and their level of appreciation is often unrivaled anywhere. (Just a thought, but there's probably as much or greater pay involved as with the restaurant, though I very much doubt you were doing it for the money at all!)

Sounds like you're a supremely talented aviation expert who really loves the field, so I'm sure a new project will find you all in good time. There's a reason why you found WA in the interim, though, and I for one am very delighted that we're both here at the same time.

All goodness to you and yours, Ron ~ Gg
Reply
Heroba Premium
currently i (only) have an alto and a tenor. i play both but my favorite is the tenor, followed by the soprano and then alto. i know, this doesn't make any sense hehe.

i like your idea about playing for the elderly! i'll check with the guys how they feel about it. i am the only foreigner in the band and have found that we connect perfectly musical wise but beyond that... ah well.
that's why it's great to have the WA community!
meeting and connecting to a person like you just makes my day!

Hello Gwynn. Welcome to the WA community. :) I'm sorry that you're having to deal with a long-term illness. That must prove somewhat challenging to you at times but you strike me as being a very positive person with a great deal of inner strength. I'm glad that you're not allowing your illness to get the better of you & that you seem determined to overcome whatever obstacles you encounter along the way.

You seem to possess a.wonderful vitality & exuberance. I thoroughly enjoyed the photographs that you shared & it seems evident that you have an incredible zest for life.

You're obviously very passionate about music & I'm sure that you would do well to explore that area of interest as your particular niche.

I'm glad that you have a good feeling about being here; this is truly an altruistic community where we help one another to succeed. Enjoy the journey & I hope that you are successful in all your endeavours. May all your dreams become a reality!

You most definitely have an unusual passion and fascination, and as well, you have the writing skills to bring Big Life to that interest.

Your last three paragraphs are stuffed to overflowing with scores of potential stories, and you've made me curious enough that I have to request at least a story or two put to virtual paper as soon as you're able to post them. I've no doubt that you'll acquire droves of readers as soon as you begin regaling us with the details of your thoroughly uncommon experiences!

Hi Alexander, and thank you so much for your warm words and your welcoming spirit =] The feeling is mutual... I look forward to hearing and reading about your journey here on WA as well :)

About the Presidential photo, if you scroll to the bottom of this page, you'll see my reply to Kyle's question about it also =] If all goes as it's been going, there should be two more times to shake his hand before he leaves Office, making a total of five handshakes! Such fun I'm very grateful to enjoy :) All goodness to you, Gg

Hey Gwynn, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. After reading your profile, I would say that you've come to the right place. All you need to do is, do your lessons, ask for help when you need it, apply what you learn, take a subject you like and build a business you love... that's it. You can do this. All the best. Phil

What is the story behind the President Obama photo?
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
Hi again, Phil ~

I didn't intend to ignore your question! In case you didn't see what I had written to Kyle, here's the answer =]

As for the Presidential photo, my fiancé is an Associate Artist with Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC and puts together all the music for the annual Gala there each June. One of the bonuses is a meet and greet with our President (and the First Lady, when she's available). This photo was from my first time meeting him =] I'm a lucky girl!

Because of my health challenge, I seem to be going a bit slowly with my lessons, but I've been collecting and journaling tons of good stuff that will eventually show up on my site. I went to Go Daddy and bought two domains so I already feel much more "real"!

Now to read your newest blog post before anything else :) Hope you are well and thriving!

Hi Gwynn, I didn't feel ignored and I didn't see your reply to Kyle. I just figured you were probably busy.
Wow, what a wonderful job your fiancé has, something else to envy him for. ;^)
My age challenge seems to slow my lessons, but I'm pumping out blogs and content. We'll get it done, right?

I'm not only well, I'm wonderful, and all the more so after hearing back from you. All the best.
Phil

Hey Kyle! Thank you so much for your welcome message :) I'm so excited to have stumbled on your work and this wonderful community you and Carson have put together. My gratitude for your obvious passion and dedication is huge =] I feel absolutely certain the Universe sent me to your website just in the nick of time. I'm headed over to jot down "getting to know me" thoughts, but I wanted you to know just how important it is to me that you sent your welcoming words. Looking forward to the beautiful road ahead!

Until we meet =]

No problem at all Gwynn, it is great to have you here at WA and I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead. So glad you found us!

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)

Thanks, Kyle :) I'm impressed that you, as co-founder, really read my short bio and saw the photos; I expected to get a prefabricated response due to the number of people you're actively mentoring. So thanks very much for being a real person! I'm totally sold on what you & Carson have created, and as soon as I'm out of this car I'm traveling in, I'll be upgrading to Premium.

As for the Presidential photo, my fiancé is an Associate Artist with Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC and puts together all the music for the annual Gala there each June. One of the bonuses is a meet and greet with our President (and the First Lady, when she's available). This photo was from my first time meeting him =] I'm a lucky girl!

I'm enjoying the training very much and have actually connected with several great folks. WA is truly awesome!

Until next time ;)

Haha, no we are real and we are active although the odd message we send is pre-written, we are active here within WA every day (and have been for the last 9 years).

That is awesome RE: the annual Gala and meeting Mr. Obama, I wouldn't mind have a little game of hoops with him so next time you see him if you could pass that on lol.

Glad you are enjoying everything here and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead. If you need a hand with anything going forward, let me know and I will give you a hand.
