About Hmblack
Joined June 2020
For the past 20 years I have always wanted to be my own boss but being an introvert and not having a whole bunch of hobbies due to being a single parent (not through choice I hasten to add) I had put this idea “on the back burner”. However, as I retired from work a couple of years ago I now find myself with time on my hands and wondered if there was a way of connecting with other like minded individuals.

I am 61 years old, live in Forfar in Scotland and am an introvert (did I just say that?) Mind you, my friends don’t see me that way at all!! I started work as a Secretary back in 1976 and then became an Investment Administrator for a Financial Adviser. I also have 2 grown up sons whom I am very proud of.

I enjoy going to the theatre, cinema, restaurants, going for long walks, swimming and travelling. I also enjoy putting a nice dress on to go dancing which I have been doing for the last 14 years. I found the dancing helped me bring me out of my shell as I actually had to talk to people.

I believe in the law of attraction which has helped me enormously over the years so perhaps finding Wealthy Affiliate was meant for me.

Great to see that you've added some goals Helen!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Hi Helen
Thank you for including me in your network and for taking the time to pop over to my profile and leave a message.
We have quite a bit in common, I too have been a single Mum, also not of my own choosing. I have a young adult daughter now who is my pride and joy.
Some people say I am an extrovert and others introvert, I think it may depend on my mood and the company, lol! I recently that introverts make better managers than extroverts because we are introspective. Also that introverts are often overlooked because of the extroverts attracting more attention to themselves. Interesting, right?
I wish you every success with your online business adventures, you really have landed in a wonderful place at WA.
Blessings always

Hi Helen,

Great! Very nice getting to know so much about you. Well, it is good to see that you are having an active, vibrant and well balanced lifestyle.

I totally agreed, you do not look like an introvert from your profile picture. Well, we share quite a bit of the same interests. Especially, The Law of Attraction.

A big thank you for your follow, i like to follow you definitely.

To your success,

Helen,

Nice introduction after reading it. I too see myself as an introvert, enjoy all my home comforts too much and any form of indoor gaming, hobbies, interests and entertainment - hence my website niche. Stay focussed and enjoy the journey, we were all at the start at one point as was I and even I've got a fully working, professional website with affiliate links - just takes time and you're lucky as children are grown up and you're retired - Nice. Alas I'm not in that boat.

It is nice to meet you Steve and is great to meet a fellow introvert.

I am pleased WA is working for you. I love to hear success stories. Hopefully, I will be in that boat one day.

I am beginning to think that it is easier just to write about anything rather than focus on the one thing!! I tell you, if I could make an income just being a penfriend, then I would seriously look into that, lol. Between you and me, it doesn't seem such a bad idea, does it?

I suppose I am lucky in that I am retired but am looking to making this work for me as I miss having a salary.

Anyway, good luck with your venture.

Helen,

In case you find time when you're not tapping away on your next post. Have you heard of or checked out 'Fiverr.' I know of it and have checked it out briefly but haven't started it up yet. You may find this useful based on what you have stated above.

In case you weren't aware, Fiverr works in a way where you put something on there as a service that you are good at or have skills in. If you are skilled at writing, admin or finances then you could offer a gig on Fiverr, put a price on it, give a completion day and see if anyone contacts you from over the world wanting your services.

For example, I'm quite skilled and creative with Photoshop CS2 and could add my services on their to crop, enhance and clean up people's images for ebay and e-commerce. I may stick a price tag of £5 to the gig and say offer half a day to complete. It's just another source of income stream that utilises what you believe you're skilled at. Check it out if you already haven't.
