About Irishlassie
Joined May 2018
I am a 71 year old wife, mother and grandmother. I need to make some income from home as I am caring for my husband who is recovering from open heart surgery. I love computers and technology, but I haven't had any training on them. I live in South Carolina, and it is finally beginning to act like it..lol..no Spring, we jumped right into Summer.

Greetings, Judy!

I've gotten behind in responding to my new followers so I decided to take a few days to catch up and say thank you for adding me to your network.

I hope everything is going well with you as you go through the Certification.

All the best as you continue to develop and grow your online business, Judy.

Hi. You must not have seen my blog this morning..I canceled my account..hopefully not forever. But there is too much going on right now and the distractions are getting to me. Thanks.

Hello Judy 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.

Judging by the other comments below, your name is Judy which is a very nice name. But if I may, can I address you as Irish Lassie, your profile name? I like that Bonnie name, hehe!!!

So, hi Irish Lassie and welcome to WA. If you love computers and technology you are going to love it here so put on your learning cap and follow the courses. There is so much to learn and its fun in the process.

So on a final note, I would like to wish you and your family the very best in all aspects of life.

Cheers,

Brad

Your profile pic looks pretty young to me. All of the members here at WAU have been a newbie at one time or another. Jump on the Get Started Here lessons, with both feet. Those lessons will be your guide through this growth process you are experiencing. Before you know it you will be helping others to understand what you are going through.

Best regards,

Keisi.

While you are building your new career don't forget to have fun!

I'm trying..and thanks for the compliment..that picture was taken onboard ship last November so I was very near 71 when it was taken. I'm trying to figure it out..I have so much to do at the moment, there is a lot going on with my family..but I spend a couple hours daily..mostly reading and re watching the videos...whew..

You're very welcome, Judy and thank you very much for spending time growing your new career. Family is very important! Are any of them interested in helping you grow your business? As you are learning there is a lot of things involved with what we do. I am trying my best to clone myself so I can divide some of what we do among others.

Outsourcing is a way of cloning but family help is another way to outsource. If they are not interested, you have more than enough help with the WAU members. Any questions, Please ask!

Best regards,

Keisi.

Thanks..no, believe it or not..since I jumped into the technology world with both feet at an advanced age...none of my family are into computers..boo hoo. But you are right...I have found so many great people here in WA. So thoughtful and helpful. And believe me, I need all the help I can get. Lol.

Hello, Irishlassie! Is it Judy? I want to go to Ireland some day while I can still walk and maneuver. I want to see where my ancestors came from, how they lived, where they walked. I love the look of the Irish countryside. I, too, love listening to Celtic Women, Celtic Thunder, and so on.

I'm glad to see you found WA. I'm sure that if you follow the course steps you will discover that computers and technology aren't really all that scary. I'm no techy and had little real experience on computers, but I'm doing better than I expected. I'm sure you will, too. Don't be afraid to ask questions about anything. This is a very sharing community of people.

Thanks for adding me to your network. I have likewise added you to mine. I hope you have fun and success in your adventures here.

Thanks Candice. I am the same about wanting to go while I can still maneuver..so I'd better hurry up lol..I hope you do..my ancestors came from around Sligo..my maiden name is Gill..and Loch Gill is there..The island of Innisfree, is where the poet John Butler Yeats lived. Sorry to sound like a tour guide..or teacher..I am not that knowledgeable but love everything Irish..especially my favorite Lads lol.

So glad that you found WA! You're gonna enjoy it here and be able to learn what you need to know to build a real online business. Of course, you'll be working too, but there are so many experts here that you'll be able to get answers to questions quickly---especially if you go to Live Chat. I wish you much success! :)

Hi Judy, it's so funny to hear you guys in SC jumped over Spring, looks like that is going to happen in Ireland too, still hailstones this week and very nippy in the sun but hoping for good things next week

My dad had a triple bypass jan 2017, scary time, and for at least 6 months he was very weak and we sort of didn't know what he'd be like afterwards, even if he could drive the same distances and vehicles again, but now 1.5 years after he says he is like a new man, though that happened before now, it's nice to see the color back in his face and him looking strong and well. The operation itself is a crazy scary time, surreal, and they are as weak as babies afterwards. I can't believe even the scar on his chest is barely visible now, wish I had that much recovery power myself. There is an interesting integrative cardiologist Stephen Sinatra who you'll see on youtube and his own website has some great ideas for energy boost if your hubby needs it at any point.

Looking at your comments don't worry about writing, it is communication, like speaking to a friend so you'll be fine. Also re membership fees if you go yearly it is almost half price or if you go through the training and get to affiliate links you'll see how sharing them in various ways can cover our costs in here too.

Enjoy the training!

Thank you so much...I want to go to Ireland..my favorite guys are from different parts of Ireland. Have you ever heard Celtic Thunder..or two of the original singers also have their own duo..Byrne and Kelly..I'm so hooked on them...for going on 11 years now. I can't believe y'all had more snow than usual too right? Weather patterns are really changing. I will keep plugging away..I don't give up easily..thanks again.

Much better in mine and a lot of their fans. Their fan base here, Canada and Australia is huge..we are like a big club lol. The guys are so sweet and down to earth. I love all of them but my favorite is Neil Byrne. He is from County Wicklow. Ryan is from The Moy.,etc. Happy Mother's Day. I know you don't have it the same day as here..but you do have it don't you? Anyway..have a good day.

Thanks for reaching out Judy,
if you know what your passion is, I think you're fortunate. If not time to re-awaken the connection to what lights your soul on fire, or used to. As far as the technology training--you are in good hands. Watch Jay's live weekly trainings or certainly the replays. What a wealth of knowledge that man is.

Dear Judy. Thank You so much for the follow. I found Your story to be quite amazing and it is an honor to be part of Your network. Seeing how You have decided to make a serious stand in this serious matter Your husband is currently facing - Tells me that this won't be the last time we connect.

Your journey is far from over. And I truly hope to see You flourish within these walls for many years to come.

Please say hello to Your husband for me, and let him know that he has at least touched one person today, solely from existing and progressing.

Fortune will follow those who allows it
All the best,
Robin

Why Thank YOU, Judy, for being such an inspiration to the rest of us!

You can overcome anything by asking the right questions. Because, in return You will get the right answers. This can evne be used to let yourself answer the questions You are asking. Because, sometimes we just need to organize it in our minds to have a clear goal of where we want to go.

This, ultimately, means that - Even if You find the process to be a bit complex, you can still manage to navigate Your way through, just from breaking it down into tiny bits. This way, You can allow yourself to solve the problem for You. - Even with, or without former experience. Remember that we are Our own biggest critiques so just DO rather than THINK. :-)

This is simply because, from simply doing You will see real progress. - No matter how 'rough on the edges' it might seem.
This can be cleaned up later on as You go as well.

Thumb-of-rule: Every action is a learning process and try to do everything in Your power to always be moving forward. Even if this would mean that Your website would look like a scrapbook. This will still teach You on the pitfalls to avoid.

By simply not quitting You will automatically earn authority and attract lots of traffic. It is only lost if You decide to give up. Until then, You are already half-way there.

Your newest friend,
Robin

P.S. There are lots of resources to gain from just a single search in here (on top). For the simplicity, try to search for "Writer" This will give You several ways to bypass "Writer's Block". D.S.

P.P.S. Please, let me know if anything feels unclear, as I'd be surprised if it did not. :-) D.D.S

Hi Judy,
Great decision to become a premium as this will help you go much deeper in understanding the e-commerce business.
As you probably already started going through your lessons you saw that by following the normal program will take you to an understanding about Affiliate Market but as Premium you will have the benefit of acquiring a more extensive knowledge and understanding of the e-commerce business as the program is set.
I wish you success and a fast recovery to your husband from his surgery.
Enjoy your warm weather from South Caroline surrounded by your family.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Judy I noticed you set up your profile completely. That's really great you're definitely on the right track!

Taking action is very important even when it's something as simple as an account set up.

I also wanted to mention Premium membership.
If your enjoying WA so far and want to move up a level its definitely worth a try. I highly recommend it for everyone.

If you need help with anything. Let me know!

Looking forward to your progress Judy

Hello Judy,

Nice to meet you! My name is Peter, I just wanted to welcome you here and wish you lots of success.
Hope you find the site as useful as I have.

As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't worry, it's really easy to do.

Here's a video that shows how easy it is: (1) Add your profile image
(This helps people to connect with you quickly. You can put what you like)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know a little about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

If you do these simple steps it will show you're serious about learning at WA and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile.

Then make sure you complete Lesson 1 to start moving in the right direction: Click the link and take a few moments to get started...

Let me know if I can help you with anything or answer any questions about WA.
It's great to have you as part of the community here at WA!

I'm here to help :)

Best of luck
Peter

Thanks..the reason I hadn't so far is that I am caring for my husband who is recovering from a quadruple bypass and it is a lot of work..I finally got him settled and now I want to begin. One thing..do you think I could complete my profile from my phone instead of my desktop? I want access to pictures that are on there and for some reason, my computer ignores my phone.
Reply
DordPete Premium
Don't worry Judy there's no rush! Your husband is more important and needs your attention. I hope he's recovering well!
Try adding your photo from your phone, you should be able to do it but if not you can use one of the images they provide temporarily.
The platform is in the process of being updated to make it 100% mobile compatible, so if you do have any problems using the WA platform from your phone these problems should be ironed out very shortly.
