About HeyItsMeLori
Joined March 2015
Hey! I am an entrepreneur, much like many of you. I've owned several businesses, in different industries. I have been looking for something to start online for quite a while, and am hoping I've found it in WA.

I live in SC, and my new husband lives in MI. :( We want to generate a good (great) income that will allow us both to live 6 months in SC and 6 months in MI, since his (grown) children are there, and my (grown) children are in SC.

I have actually lived in Europe twice, and am fond of most things European. I have a life-long quest to finally, at least somewhat master German. I just can't seem to get those cases figured out!

I love to read, especially to learn everything I can about anything that may interest me. One thing always leads to another, and I find the internet to be the best catalyst for learning! It's amazing what you can find!

I love furniture, and to recreate old pieces with paint, a hammer and nails (to put it simply). Any kind of artistic endeavor is worth exploring, I believe. I love to write and create whatever strikes my fancy at the time!

I am looking forward to learning and earning as I go forward. I'll appreciate all of the help and encouragement I can get, and am happy to offer the same!

Hello and many thanks for following, I wish you a lot of success in your new venture. Incidently, I struggled with learning both french and german until I went to the countries, it is amazing how quickly you learn locally.
Reply
HeyItsMeLori Premium
Oh yes, I agree! I have lived in both Germany and Austria - Still can't get those cases down, but yes, I got along just fine while in country. So much more to learn, though, and I've been back from Austria for 6 1/2 years now with little practice. Still, I keep chipping away at it. :)

I would like to know more..

Me? or acejohn? What would you like to know?

In the first instance it is useful if you could make a start with the language before setting off and there is a series called accelerated learning
http://www.acceleratedlearning.com/store/products.cfm
I really struggled until I found these courses and they moved me forward but you cannot learn to speak the language just from a course, so I spent 3 months in the country and tried not to speak english. The people are extremely helpful and you end up being able to communicate fully.

I also found that you can forget just as quickly without conversation.

Rosetta Stone is great but expensive. Duolingo is another good one, and FREE. In country, people are very helpful, and will be eager to use their English skills as well - in the right setting.

HeyItsMeLori Premium
The first thing you should do, is write a little more about yourself on your profile. Then start at the green "Get Started Here" button. These are step-by-step lessons on how to set up a website so that you can earn money with them. If you want to simplify things, and want something laid out for you more, start at the "Affiliate Bootcamp" button. It is specific to making money promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

The beauty of WA is the multitude of helpful members ready and willing to help with questions. There is a place right at the top of your profile page for you to ask. You'll get answers from several people to be sure.

By the way - You do not have to pay for a premium membership to get started. It's just recommended to make the best use of the resources here.

I hope this helps! - Lori

Lori, I liked your wonderful response of 'rawhide' so much I came here to take a look. I was never an entrepreneur but I love figuring things out. I love reading and my site is sci fi & fantasy. And I absolutely find one thing leads to another and this takes up a lot of my time. So I hope you have success, fun and a happy journey here and please keep in touch.
Reply
HeyItsMeLori Premium
I'm afraid I gave away my age with that comment! ;) Since you are more into sci fi & fantasy, I don't know if this will appeal to you, but if you'd like to read a little of what I've written, my fledgling art blog is www.poppiesinred.com Take a gander over there... Meanwhile, much success to you as well! Thank you for the "howdy".

Your story of working to be in the same state as your spouse brings fond memories to the fore. I like to say my wife thought we should live in the same country.. After our 2004 marriage in Utah, I had to exit the country to pursue my immigration application from Australia, being told that our separation would be mere months. After paperwork going astray on several occasions, repeated supply of same information etc etc, I arrived back on her birthday (9 years ago last Sunday) after 20 months of separation. It was good to have had a great International phone arrangement, even with a +17 hour time difference. Larry

Holy cow! That's some distance! It is difficult at times, but we make it work. And we aren't kids, so I find there is a little more patience - and creativity. We get a kick out of how we watch tv together via Skype when we are apart. We watch church together too. It's almost as if we are sitting next to each other on the sofa. Almost, but not. I press on.... Best to you! Lori

That's the problem I have. I know a little about a whole lot. I love art. I have lived in Europe. I refurbish old furniture, I have been a seemstress, I live in both the South and the North - I've been in property management, hotel management, retail management, owned my own store, been a seamstress. owned other businesses....have been a missionary.... See how random it all is? That's just the tip of the iceberg! :) - and my interests are just as random. I suppose, most of all, I love art, and writing poetry, and and the richness of culture, and beautiful things of mine or someone else's creation. And freedom. Roll that into a ball, and I think you get meatloaf! lol My brain is on ADD overdrive!

-while we're on a roll, and if you don't mind offering opinions, I own two domain names that I need to decide what to do with. The first is poppiesinred.com and the second is Heyitsme-Lori.com . The poppies one was intended to be an art/life site, which I have actually started just blogging on.... but someone here pointed out to me that it is pretty well known that red poppies represent military vets. ...definitely need to think on that. The other domain is my twitter and skype handle... I think I should monetize it some how. Care to opine?
Reply
timsproducts Premium
Both good ideas and both nice names the poppies in red and being a veteren related phrase maybe you could focus some of your articles on military related literature and art. Get your foundations in place first before you think of monetising them.

I think the most important factor is being consistent, not so much the amount of time spent. 15 minutes a day is better than a 12 hour session once a month. My opinion.
