About Jltracey1188

To those reading, my name is Jess, and I am a 30 year old native Floridian.
My life has not been glamorous, in fact quiet the opposite. I am not ashamed to tell you that I am a recovering addict and alcoholic. I am proud to tell you that despite the obstacles I am still here, stronger than ever, to tell my tale.
First and foremost I am an artist, in every sense of the word. I sketch, paint, sculpt, write, and I can even carry a tune. My creativity and intelligence was my downfall, now I would like to use those same talents to climb back up.
Because of my addiction, which started at a very young age, I threw away my chances of going to college and making something of myself early on. I have also not had a proper job since the age of 18, which was only waitressing. That way I could use my daily tips to support my habit. Since then, along my rocky road of recovery, I found my way in to a phone room. What other profession was I qualified for? Other than a minimum wage job taking drive-thru orders? I had no experience in an office setting, no degree, and my style definitely wouldn't be considered "professional."
I want to share with you a recent post from my timeline:

"At the beginning of this year, I weighed 230+ lbs., and spent the first two months at Boca Regional Hospital/Heartland Manor Care, with a failing liver and not an ounce of strength left in my body, ultimately paying the price for my years of drinking and drug abuse. I was certainly at my lowest, and definitely the closest to losing my life.
Although I will live with the consequences for the rest of my days, I don't regret the trauma. Yes it was terrifying, especially for my loved ones, and yes it was painful in every sense of the word, but for the first time I could finally see my life for the wonder it really is.
No, it's not pretty, or picture perfect. It's not all flowers and rainbows. There's an obstacle around every corner, and every step I take is uphill. But I don't need it to be perfect, and it's finally okay to wear my scars. It's an experience that should be cherished, from every beautiful moment to each and every kick in the ass. I can accept the imperfections, just like I will embrace each goal I reach. I will never have everything I want, but I know I will have everything I need.
This isn't my first rodeo, I've lost count of all the times I've hit the dirt, but this is the first time I've come out of the gate fighting for a life I never thought was possible. A life I finally care about, a life I want with everything in me, and I'll fight tooth and nail to achieve.
When I opened my eyes in January to find a broken body and a terrified family, it was the largest reality check of my life. It took wrecking my body to piece together my perspective. It hasn't been a picnic, and as my loved ones know I am by no means at peace or even close to stable. But I do have one thing that I've never had before, hope for the future, and the will to mold it, tweak it, and enjoy the ride."

Now because of the events of this last year, I have been unable to work, and I refuse to step foot back on the sales floor, putting in my sweat and tears to earn small commissions for myself by scamming others, so that the owner of this immoral business can get in to his Mercedes and drive home to his million dollar home. I want to accomplish my own success with what little tools I have been given. Did I come to the right place?

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

Hi Jessica, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my site, Affiliate UNguru. I'm just stopping by to say hello, and to see if you have any questions or want some help getting rolling?

If so, just hit 'reply' below this message and I'll get back to you asap! :)

Either way, here's the link to start your very first lesson: This is the exact training that took me from "newbie" to "super affiliate", so I'm super excited to be sharing this with you today! All you need to do is follow the training and complete the tasks as you go along, and you'll be well on your way to creating a thriving business online.

Also, before I go, I just wanted to let you know that it's totally okay to ask LOTS of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

We were ALL beginners at one point. Most of us started out knowing virtually nothing about how any of this stuff works (myself included)! Which is why I think you are going to find the support and mentoring you receive here at Wealthy Affiliate to be absolutely priceless. So I recommend you take FULL advantage of this as you start building out your new business.

Anyways Jessica, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I'm looking forward to working with you going forward!

Tim

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUSES:

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up about the exclusive bonuses I have lined up for you, should you decide to upgrade to a Premium Membership within your first 7 days...

Bonus 1 ⇨ Over 60% Off a Premium Membership

By upgrading to a Premium Membership at Wealthy Affiliate, before the timer runs out, you will receive a 61% discount on your first month (from $49 to $19)! This is an absolute steal. Getting everything you need to build a profitable online business for such a low price is simply a no brainer. You can learn more about Wealthy Affiliate Premium here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

Bonus 2 ⇨ Live "Idea to Profit" Niche Case Study

Access to an exclusive Live "4-part case study" that walks you through the exact step-by-step process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes in a true "over the shoulder" format. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff and something you will not want to miss.

Bonus 3 ⇨ I Will Help You Choose a Profitable Niche

Choosing the right niche can make or break your success from the get go. So this is something you need to get right if you want results in the shortest time possible. And I'm guessing you do, which is why I put this bonus together. When you take advantage of this bonus offer, I will personally help you choose a profitable niche! No more guesswork and no more uncertainty that you might've chosen the wrong niche, because I will personally help you choose a winning niche right from the get go, which will ensure you are in the best possible position to create real success!

Bonus 4 ⇨ 1-on-1 Private Message Coaching

Starting any new venture can be challenging, even when you have access to something as amazing as Wealthy Affiliate. This is why I am going to be offering you personal and private access to me! I will be your mentor, your coach. I will be there for you every step of the way to help you reach (and exceed) your goals. I started right where you are now, and built a 6 figure business online, by following the same training you are going through right now. So having personal access to a successful internet marketer, who followed the same path as you and "came out the other side" (whenever you need it) is going to be a HUGE deal for you. But remember, you must act before the timer runs out if you want to claim these bonuses! :)
