About Jatdebeaune
Joined September 2009
Not so new anymore to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm an old newbie. In fact,
I feel like a perennial "newbie". There are some aspects of IM that are very comfortable for me right now, and others that will require patience and focus to master. The tech stuff still gives me anxiety. Html blues. Here's the good news...the stress disappears every time I learn something. So eventually all the stress will go bye bye. I suspect, it will
be the same for the "new" newbies.

So glad to be here! Appreciate that Kyle and Carson created such a fine community to learn this craft. WA has a great positive vibe, with wonderful members.

Before I came here, I bought into lots of programs and guru material. I was chasing my tail like a mad monkey on crack. Have had fun though, if blowing through your resources can be fun. Spent money on things I didn't need, burned holes in my pockets, and ended up with pathetically puny success, but energetic websites. No computer experience. Hah! I didn't even know how to turn one on. No kidding. Obviously, didn't know enough, so I just winged it. I was so confused. Not enough knowledge is a dangerous thing. But you have to start somewhere. That was yesterday and today is today. Every day I am that much more knowledgeable, that much ahead. Tomorrow will be another story. The ahah! moments are cumulative. If you want to know how far you have come, just look at where you started.

I was a printed textile designer, product designer, and an illustrator in New York for many years. I've won lots of industry awards, and it's the way I earned my living. I am really a painter. My big passion is painting. My primary focus right now is my art. IM was originally intended to be a way to support myself while I transition from the applied to the fine arts and paint.

Surprise! I greatly underestimated the amount of skill and experience it takes to be a successful marketer online. I am using my newly acquired skills to promote art and design. I aim to use this knowledge as inventively as I can. You can't invent if you don't get those technical skills under your belt too.

Have had to figure out how to keep the daylight hours for painting and drawing, and work online at night. Like most painters, I need daylight to see color.

My first manner of business at WA has been to stay organized and to be disciplined. Discipline!!! Discipline means to stay "on purpose" and always remember what I am here for, which is to learn how to be a creative, contributive, and profitable online presence while I serve "art" first.

Protect time. Time is yours and my most valuable commodity.

Update: Even though I have a great deal to learn about Internet Marketing, I am understanding the connection between each step, and becoming analytical of the whole process. That's good news for anybody. When you figure out the logic, you can save yourself time, even when you experiment.

I wish everybody here much success in attaining your individual goals.

If it is to make a full time living online, then cheers to you! You can do it. You are in the right place to support that goal. You will have all the help you will ever need.

I know this in itself is a daunting task but if we all hold each other accountable we can do it. I have written about it in the post below, read it, pass it along, and advise me on how I can I can get better because that’s what families do… Each One Teach One. Thanks for your support

Joan...I completely understand and appreciate your story and find it to be so close to my own. Being an artist/designer/illustrator/cartoonist myself, I can relate in that I have followed numerous roads of 'divine temptation', wherever they led. Fortunately, many were very good and I was able to make my living doing what I enjoyed. Now retired, I have joined WA as a means to try and further market my artwork. Many opportunities are out there, I just have to find them and I will. I do wish you well as you continue your journey and hope that WA is good to you as you merge your interests. Success... !!!

Hello Joan. I ran across your profile accidentally and thoroughly enjoyed reading what you said and what I thought was there that you didn't say. I practiced medicine for 40 yrs. and only charged people because I had to in order to feed my family. I enjoyed it so much and found it so rewarding and exciting that I almost felt guilty to also get paid! I hope your needing to focus some on income production does not eliminate or reduce your thrill you get from your real work "your love". Best wishes to you.

Hi Joan, my name is Tom, and thanks for the "FOLLOW me", .... you and I have come to the right place, and like you wish to learn more and become that person who can help and share valuable knowledge. Everyone of us have a unique talent and want to help as many others enjoy working from home in a profitable "Home Based" business. Riches, won't make you happy, but having enough is all one needs, ....... should I be blessed with more than I really need in this life, this would put me in a better position to help others in the future.

Hey! thanks for the "Follow" I look forward to corresponding with you. WA is the right place to be, and will get all the support from Kyle and Carson and others who are in a position to count themselves worthy for bringing their talents to such a wonderful site. As for me, I have made my presence known to all, looking for that special person to connect with, also to let you know that I have just joined as a premuim member on 11th October 2013 and in great need of support,. Thanks for taking a look at my page which you are more than welcomed to see what I am up to and would love to engage with you also.

Yes! like you have had a very good artistic talent which started during my school years, and a never really carry this on, but there were times money was short I would do an oil painting for a wedding gift. Being an outdoor guy, had no interest in mobile phones/computers period. Now I have to try and get my head into this, is taking it's toll on my character. I find myself always looking to see other sites for tips and tricks!! That's if I am able to say that! I have no idea of how to go about this, but am willing to put all the time and energy in to make it my life's pension.

Inspiring post. Thank you. Think we are following each other. WA is the place for each of us learning every day no matter how new we are. Yes, we are newbies each day, since we are best when we learn by doing. Doing IM is getting a little easier and with focus, practice and determination, believe results will happen. Being mentored by so many good people like you, is the icing on the cake. Love the arts, have met three artists here at WA, each one with different form and style. Seems we are all doing IM and our passions that we put aside while we were employed.

Hi Joan, Greetings from Cyprus, a great bio, it is interesting to know that you are into painting, a good friend of mine in the UK Geoffrey Dashwood is a sculptor in contemporary bronze birds, I built the interior of his gallery in the New Forest Hampshire UK and the plinths for the displays. But here we are with our fingers to the key board now ha ha ha.

Yes Brian, I have to support my habit until it supports itself. The fine arts serve no master. The "keyboard" is an extension of whatever we do anyway. So we write a little about what we know. It's a win win. What's the harm? Are you a builder by trade?

When I left school I went into catering as a comi chef took my UK City and Guilds certificate, next job was a progress chaser for an engineering company, from there I took another course in wood machining and worked for Crosby doors Swindon, left there and went to work for British Leyland on machine tool setting, left there and worked for British aerospace on air frames detail section, made redundant from there, got a job as foreman at wooden toy factory, left there and worked for Sunseeker power boats, left there and started my own joinery business making doors, windows, furniture, kitchens, wood turning, extentions to buildings, timber roofing, renovation work, repairs to domestic appliances, car maintenance and rebuilding of cars, goodness me how did I fit it all in ha ha ha, so there you go, I suppose there's not much I havn't done, except internet stuff, I have always been on my feet so to speak, so I'm a practical sort of guy, but now my tools are all but laid to one side but I have the memories.

Hi joan, I just wanted to say, after reading your blog before about Pinterest, I joined to see what it was all about, I haven't really got into it much, but I love it. I signed up for Twitter before, and never really got anything from it, but I'm also very visual, so Pinterest is my kind of site. Anyway, just wanted to say, I probably wouldn't have done it if you hadn't written about it, so thanks.

I really appreciate your suggestion but it turn out I need to become a premium member to follow it. My New Years resolution is to become a premium member. I have to earn/save money for it though. I commit to finish all the free lessons available on this site but I just hope the money I earn would be enough to defray cost of the upgrade

I believe in the founder's vision of helping like me make it online. I do it not for myself but for the sake of my daughter who is in a financial strap right now and my 3 beautiful grade school children who are affected by the crisis. I believe in the power of prayers and the law of attraction. Happy New Year and abundant blessings to come your way.

Hello jatdebeaune, thank you for the follow. :) Your story is really fascinating. Do you sell art on etsy or deviantart? It'd be cool to see some of it if you don't mind sharing.

Also I am presently seeking feedback for my first training resource that I just published. It is covering the topic of mind mapping tools, specifically a free mind map tool I found called Mind42.com. It would be wonderful if you could look at it and give me some feedback on how to improve.

Here is the link:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/mind42-com-serious-mind-mapping-for-free

Are there any ways I can present the information in a more clear and/or concise manner?

How is my formatting and design layout?

Finally I noted that you place a lot of emphasis on personal organization. Do you have any tips or recommendations on how to personally organize my IM campaign? I have already been working to mind map it out, which helps immensely but that still leaves the actual 'taking action' part. :) I am primarily concerned with burn out.

Thanks for the follow, Joan. After three years of "not getting anywhere" and wasting tons of $$$, I made up my mind, "Quit buying all this junk". Everyone wants my money.
So, that's what I've done and I feel clean. The first thing that I did was to join WA as a free member. When commissions start to come in, I will upgrade. Also, I have cancelled a number of programs that were going nowhere. That feels good also.

Hello Jatdebeaune...we have a lot in common. I read you comment on Cashflow's Blog, "Voting!" I am worried to, but I do have faith in the principles our nation is founded on and we do have to fight for them. For me, it starts with my home and making a living at my passion. It is also art. I was a designer, illustrator, etc. Have written and illustrated a book, that I am almost done with. It is pretty unique and I have a unique approach with marketing it. Can I have you look at it when I am done?

There are many of us. Not as rare as you think. But don't worry, we'll both make up for it. I like to call it being a late bloomer.

Yeah, I just feel stupid, because I can't understand, Yeah that comfort level thing, maybe some people are not cut out for this? I don't type so well and it takes me hours to write
the simplest things. I just don't get it I guess, and even though I did try I don't see it working for me right now, I have a bad attitude. I have a chip on my shoulder from being dealt a bad hand and I'm not doing the best I can to remain positive and focused, but honestly I don't think I can do this. Everyone is offering to help, but I can't point to anything in particular that is causing my confusion. I have build a website. I have studied all the key words I have created a small network, I have been open about what a challenge it would be, I knew it from the start. I so want to do this, I really do, but until I understand it better, until I actually get my hands into the process of creating something I will be uneasy. If you have any sort or advanced education or skills in a profession, you can tell that I'm just a dumb person, just by the way I write. I know that, because I spell horridly and I don't even know what a verb, conjunction, or an ad verb is. How can I do this with no basic language skills? I don't really think I know how to read sometimes?
I can't pay attention for more than about five minutes, and because I get frustrated by things I don't understand, that shouldn't be a reflection on this place. I don't blame anyone but myself. I so wish I could focus long enough to figure out what I'm doing and what the goal is in real terms. I know you all care, that is obvious. Maybe I don't really want to do this and I'm just grasping for straws? Six days till I have to decide anyway.

All that and not one specific question? If I made a webpage that did nothing but send people here to learn, I could make some money, right? I will call it Tired of looking for a
job. and out of work dot com. I wish I was smart enough to do this.

Thanks for your support

Mike, I wish I could assure you that I know exactly how you feel. I've been through that too. Internet Marketing is different from anything I have ever done, and yes, it is frustrating. You will find that some of the tasks are natural for you and you will sail through them. Other things you will prefer to farm out. It'll require some patience to get it all together.

Marketing online is basically communicating with and helping people in a niche that is fun for you. It could be about a hobby or the work you are doing right now to earn a living, that you can share with other people.

At the start, choose a niche that holds your interest. Choose what you know and love. For me it's design. For other people it is health and nutrition, dieting, bodybuilding, dating, forex, music, food, making money online, and so many other venues. The sky's the limit.

Start with the niche that excites you the most.

Affiliate marketing is basically marketing products (physical and digital products) within your niche. It's indirect selling, in that your objective is to help your audience which in turn will result in them buying your products. You "lead" them to the product through your influence: knowing your topic and the product. When people get to know and trust you, you'll make sales.

As far as WA is concerned, yes, you can put up a site about Internet Marketing and suggest people join WA, at least do the 10 day trial as a sampler. Know that the "make money online" niche is very competitive. That being said, if you really believe in WA as a place to learn, then go for it.

As far as writing is concerned, you write well. There are some people for whom English is their second language and not all of them are fluent. Can you imagine? Writing is a practice thing. The more you do the better you are. If you hate it, you can outsource it for not a lot of money, and focus on what you like to do.

If you really want this, I would stick with it for a few months before making up your mind. You don't have much to lose. May as well try it out.

Joan thanks for following me. I have only been here a day but I know that a great part of getting ahead is to surround yourself with folks who are on the move and that's what is incredible about this group.

Welcome Bob. This is a very helpful and friendly group. If you get stumped, there are many who will rush to help. That being said, I'm here if I can help in any way, Meanwhile, just follow the outline, and that'll give you a good foundation.

Hello Jatdebeaune, very inspiring profile! I've been here about a month or so now, and I've learned a lot but still need to learn a whole lot more! I am hoping to make this into a full time living someday, hopefully within the next year. I'll keep at it however long it takes! Best wishes!

One step at a time and you'll get there. You'll be learning every day. I'm no genius at this, but let me know if you need some help.

Im inspired after reading your bio. Im so confused right now. Im struggling with first step and since Im a perfectionist its frustrating to not know something. I tink I will be one of those who bugs you with questions. Its only my 3rd day and so far Im convinced this will work but have no clue how. I dont even kno how to set up a website, I dont understand basic things. Im glad thats how you started too now I dont feel that dumb.

Confusion is something everyone feels at first. Take it one step at a time. Follow the WA program as outlined so that you can see the process as a whole. Then focus on one aspect at a time, ie keyword searches, article writing, getting comfortable setting up sites, SEO. Don't stress out. If I can help, let me know. You will be learning something new all of the time. That's what's so great about this place and Internet Marketing. Do you know you can send private messages by clicking forum in the menu? You can communicate with fellow members in private.
