About JFarmer2
Joined July 2019
I am 81 years old and have Parkinson's. But I AIN'T dead yet! I retired from 20 years at IRUA (Indian River Urology Assoc) after 20 years as their Ins/BillingPatent Accts Mgr. I have a computer/fax and an iPhone. And am proficient with all three.
I really need to make money in order to supplement my "fixed income" from Social Security. I have been applying for jobs via the internet, but they have other ways of finding out your age, without having to ask for your DOB. I think that is the main reason I have not heard back from anyone.....yet! But I'm not going to give up. I'm a fighter, and I intend to earn "my keep" as they say.

Hey precious lady! I'm a newbie here as well. And somewhat can relate to your bio except I am 41 but I have suffered from Crohn's Disease and several other illnesses which keeps me from working as well. My daughter just graduated in May and moved out. I'm here as well to supplement my "fixed income" as well. Best Wishes to you and I look forward to seeing what we both can achieve!

Hey, there darlin'! I appreciate your getting back to me with your
follow. I also look forward to getting to see what we can achieve as well. However, I think it will take a little longer for me, cause I'm still looking for an at home job. And I'm doing it online, so I am continuously filling out applications. And that gets time-consuming. But I will prevail...we both will...right? You remind me so much of my daughter! Good luck honey, I know you're going to do well!

Thank you ma’am and same to you! I’m currently doing the same with online apps. I haven’t worked in a while and there’s not too much I can do so it sucks and frustrating! But Gods got us and will be just fine! 😉

Hi, Josephine.
Paul Mindra here from Southern Ontario, Canada.

Many of us (myself included) need to supplement our fixed incomes so that we can make our spending budgets a little nicer.

Age is a huge issue in getting back into the workforce. We are considered obsolete. So we have to take matters into our own hands.

Welcome to The Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Community.

Here I have found a home base of learning that I am slowly putting into practice based on following the training provided. I move at my own pace because I am a slow learner of all this technology.

I too can use a computer, fax machine and android phone but that does not necessarily mean that I am proficient in the technology. My goal is to learn more and more as each course and day passes.

Hey, listen.

I am really pleased to make your acquaintance and I am very proud of doing so.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network by following my profile or based on something that I have done or said on the forum here. I have accepted your invitation by following your profile back.

You've only just recently arrived. How are you finding things? Is it what you expected? Do you think that you will fit in and get out of it what you expect? Where are you in course training currently? Do you need help with anything at the moment?

I can help you with laying out your foundation with the first two courses of either the 'Bootcamp' or 'Online Certification.' I found that these first two courses are what lays down what is needed for everything that is going to be brought forth by you in the future.

I'm just so pleased that you are here. You reinforce what my late mother and father always stressed to those around them throughout their lives: "It is never too late to start today what should have been started yesterday."

Blessings to you, Josephine, and continued blessings to Mom & Dad. I miss them.

Kindest regards from Canada.

Paul Mindra.

Hi there, Paul. Thanks so much for the welcome and the blessings. We can all use that! I'm really liking this WA! So far, it's worked really well for me. I am only now...trying to set up my website, but I'm really hung up! I sent a post to my mentor, Kyle. And he got back to me, with a great explanation of the steps I need to take in order to finish it and get it to a "selling site". the only problem is..I could not print the whole thing out! There were so many things, I needed to do, and I knew I would not remember them. And now I've lost his response! I will keep searching tho.
I know you were right, in your choice of the things you needed to do first. However, I did not do the boot camp program, which was recommended by Kyle. So...that will be the next thing I need to do!

PS: By Jove, Paul, I just found Kyle's post.! After I finished this post to you, I decided to drop down a few spots..and there it was!

Anyway, God Bless and take care...

Hi, Josephine.
If it helps, I could probably back you up with Kyle's training through the first two courses of Certification and Bootcamp. After all these years, I am still only at those stages. But you have to understand that those two initial first courses are the foundation upon which all else will be built.

I'm here if you want me to cover your tracks in the initial stages to make sure that you are well-grounded.

I am inspired by you as it brings out the good nature part that I want to share with the rest of the world.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

That's great Paul! I really appreciate the offer. And as soon as I fill out an employment application I just received via my email, I'll go back to the boot camp program and get started.

Going premium unlocks all the amazing features on WA and it shows another how committed you are to learn. I would like to congratulate you for taking it to another level. I took the training here in 2015 and has changed my life and the people around me. I look forward to hearing about your success story soon. Personally, I call WA my home.
What is the one thing you like about WA so far?

I like the fact that so many people honestly care about your success within the program! Everyone has been so supportive and caring. It's hard to believe that there are so many of you out there.

It's so great to meet you! I love your "never give up" attitude. That will take you far. And I commend you for pushing through Parkinson's!

I understand a little of what you're going through. I'm 51, diabetic and have had 2 major back surgeries and I'm having a hard time with employment myself. Most employers want young bucks with strong backs, etc.

You've found the perfect place to learn the best way to supplement SS. Wealthy Affiliate teaches real business principles. It's all about slow and steady. Building a legitimate business takes time, persistence and hard work.

Onward to success!!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Thanks so much Karin. Actually, I haven't really started my training yet. I'm still trying to find a job that I can do from home!
Cause I really need to supplement my income, ASAP. And I'm also trying to refinance my home on a "cash out" basis. Because
we need to do some home renovations. At any rate, I'm glad there is no set time limit, as to when I have to start my training.
Reply
Karin13 Premium
That is true. There is no time limit. And I took my time with it, too. In fact, I am going through it again because there is so much and I am a bit forgetful, so I review often until it becomes second nature.

If I can be of any help to you further along, please feel free to reach out! I'll be here.

Best wishes,
Karin :)
