About Jaz333
Joined April 2019
I am a divorced single mother of 5 children - ages 25, 18, 15, 10, and 7. My oldest made me a 1st-time grandmother in October 2019 and my youngest is on the autism spectrum so to say the least, my family keeps me busy!

For many years I was an office manager and accounting manager but as my family grew, the 70+ hour work weeks were getting to be too much to handle so I left the office world and, once cabin fever set in, I started a residential/commercial cleaning company. This allowed me to create my own schedule, be my own boss, and create some income for my family however, after a bad car crash several years ago, janitorial work became difficult for me with the injuries I sustained.

I began searching for other income options that would also allow me to spend more time at home with my children. I also researched ways to relieve the chronic pain, other than the long list of medications that was thrown at me.

I am now enrolled in a program with Dr. Christopher's School of Natural Healing working toward Master Herbalist Certification and I plan to continue on afterward to get a degree in Naturopathic Medicine or possibly Integrated Medicine. My plan is to eventually open an alternative medical office that features holistic remedies and preventative care through nutrition with the use of herbs and other natural healing modalities.

I am hoping what I do here with Wealthy Affiliate can help me finish my education and make my dreams of opening an alternative medical practice come to fruition but also help to educate the general public about herbal and other natural holistic alternatives to medical care that are out there.

Looking forward to working with everyone here at WA!
Thanks, Shannon

Great Goals Jaz you have been a great help to me here. I would like to ask if you have achieved your money goals yet?

I have received some small commissions but no I haven't reached any of my goals as far as online income. To be fair though, I haven't committed a great deal of time to my website as I have been putting most of my effort into finishing my schooling.

Hi, I'm stuck I need to embed 2 videos that I made, craft ideas for kids, in my website, and was advised by my sponsor to go via Youtube where I will get more traffic to my website, which will help with becoming an affiliate.
Youtube is a massive platform and I will need to be on top of it regularly. I have looked at Vimeo, Instagram and poss. Facebook. Can you advise please. I have got alot of loose ends and need to put things together. As well as continuing with my training. Is Youtube the only way I can embed VT's. or simply the best medium to go with? Appreciate your take on this.

ps My website is about recycling junk for kids to do art projects with.

Hi - I think with a niche like crafts you would do well with Pinterest as far as social media and traffic. It is almost known as a search engine in itself now.

I am honestly not sure what the best video medium is. I haven't gotten into producing video yet so I haven't researched that side of it. Youtube is probably the easiest way to upload video to your site that I know of but I am sure there are others.

I saw another member looking to upload their own videos just the other day too. I'm not sure if this training will help you but this is the one that was suggested to that member: Good luck!

I keep seeing you constantly on here, being so active on WA, helping others, that I finally clicked on your profile. You have quite an inspirational story to tell. I also too hope you can open your alternative medical office with natural healing. I much rather choose the natural healing ways myself, especially preventative care through nutrition. Keep holding on to your vision. You already show a lot of commitment and drive here on WA, so I know you can do it, Shannon.

Thank you for the encouragement, I really appreciate it!

I do not spend as much time on WA as you might think however. I'm really only active each morning while I drink my coffee before I get the kids off to school and me to work. On rare occasions I pop back in the evening before bed. I got a ton of help (and still do here and there) from other members when I first began though so I feel it's only fair I do my share and help when I'm able to :)

I have gotten so much out of learning the benefits of herbs! I cannot express enough how my life and health have changed for the better since I dove headfirst into the world of herbal medicine! It's also saved me a ton on medical bills with my children. I'm happy to answer any questions about herbs or natural healing should the need arise!

Take care!

Hi again Shannon,

Sorry for the late reply. I finally figured out how to find any messages sent to me, even though that sounds silly, hehe.

I love how you're doing herbal medicine! I don't even like taking traditional medicine. The natural way is the way to go in my books! I would really like to check out your website. Can you send me the link? I'll give you a really good comment too. If you're up to checking mine out, here it is:

I would be happy to check out your site too :)

Take care, Shannon

Ah, I see it now! I'm still finding my way around in here. I need to figure out how to do that myself too.

Thank you for your comment on my website. I just left one on yours. It looks so well developed, so it looks pretty far along to me, but I know you have amazing goals. I'm really looking forward to using your website as a resource for me. Thank you!

Nice to meet you Shannon, interesting Bio

Congratulations on becoming a grandmother. Sounds like you are a very busy lady.

I believe in using herbs and everything natural for healing. I drink a lot of teas. There is a lot of benefits in some teas.

You have been at WA for a few months now, and I hope that you are earning or is close to earning more than enough to meet all your goals. All the best.

Thanks for following me

Blessings

Hi Jackie,

Thank you - my daughter is actually due in 2 days so that call could come anytime to go to the hospital. I'm excited to meet the little one!

It's refreshing to meet another who uses herbs and teas. The natural world really is a wonder. I only wish I knew everything I know now years ago!

A few months into the training, I decided to start again from scratch so I'm not as far along as you might expect. The new site is doing much better than the old site and I'm very happy with it. I haven't has as much time as I would like in recent weeks to work on it but I know slow and steady wins the race ;)

Take care, Shannon

I can’t imagine how excited you are. I hope all goes well with your daughter with delivery and everything else.

I grew up on herbs and teas. It is a normal thing for people who are from the Caribbean islands. It is said that nothing happens before the time, So, now is a good time to learn.😊

Sorry to hear that you had to start over, but glad to hear that your new website is doing well. Nothing is wrong with starting over, the goal is to learn and understand.

All the best


Blessings

Great to meet you here Shannon, and this is a great place for you to leverage the work that you are doing now into an online avenue of income and contact with clients, etc.

It sounds like you are a go-getter and you have a lot on your plate. It is not easy handling everything but you are doing it well. I wish you all the best here, with the business offline, and with the family (I am a grandpa 6 x and soon a great grandpa)...

Cheers!
Dave : )

Thanks Dave - There are times I feel like I've 'bitten off more than I can chew' and get overwhelmed (like lately haha) but I find as the chaos of life drops back to a simmer, the overwhelmed feeling fades as well.

I was just reading your bio when I saw your message come through; thank you for your service! I think it's wonderful you have found a way to make the best of both worlds so to speak by staying in Germany yet partaking in many of the same past-times you enjoyed here in the states. Congrats on becoming a great-grandfather by the way!

I look forward to networking and learning from you and others here at WA. I wish you many more years of success!

Take care,
Shannon
