Hello Everyone!

A Little About Me.

I’m a single parent approaching 40 and I am BEYOND ready to create my own life rather than letting it slip by. I absolutely refuse to go back to the 9-5 because that lifestyle is dead to me and my ADHD brain is better suited for entrepreneurship. But it’s been a long two years getting over my divorce, owning my diagnosis, weeding out what works, what doesn’t, figuring out what I want, sifting through online scams versus legit opportunities, and all that effort has landed me to the right place, right here, right now! When you find something you love, you are ok with waiting a few months before the money starts to roll in!


Why I think (as a newbie) that WA is for me....

I have access to relevant, affordable, quality training, and all the tools I need are in one place. Even though I am a rookie, I can say this because I have spent over two years looking for a way to make money online. I also have access to a wonderful community made up of every level. The community is important to me because every time I try to explain to family and friends what I am trying to do here, they don't really get it and its difficult to explain because I'm just in the beginning phases. I often get, "So how much money are you making?" which is followed by, "Joana, that's great and all, but you need to focus on getting a full time job first." I feel good about what I'm starting to build and affiliate marketing is what will eventually bring in the money, but I get to do it by doing something I love and always wanted to do...writing articles, helping others, researching topics of interest!

UPDATES.....Decided to keep a monthly achievement record for myself. Definitely no need to read past this line (unless you want to). This part’s really just for me??!

May 2018 - Deciding to stop with the Bootcamp and switch to Certification. Goal: Have all lessons completed by the end of this month including all required tasks.

Hey joana.
I enjoyed reading your profile.
I reckon we are on a similar page in our journey.
I have also started with boot-camp and i'am now starting to think about pursuing another niche as this make money from home stuff is so congested and a little dodgy in so many areas.
i am still learning new stuff every day and intend to get back into the training here as my head has been turned far to much trying to chase the quick buck.

all the best to you

Indeed!
Gotta make that mental switch that great things take time to build. I’m also guilty of trying to chase that quick buck and having that bite me in the butt later. But you learn from all the “failures” and the more you put yourself out there and try new things, the closer we all get to where we belong.

From the outsider looking in, it may seem crazy what we are trying to accomplish but I take pride in the fact that I am no longer the type of person to accept “it is what it is” even if financially I haven’t reaped anything yet. So we gotta keep moving along, because going back is just not an option anymore!

See you at the top one day!

Hello Joana 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.
Robert

Holy Moly!!!! 400+ sites! That’s incredible! I can’t imagine that. I’ll be happy when I generate something from just my one site. I will definitely keep you in mind if I feel stuck because clearly you know what you are doing

Hi Joana,
Welcome to wealthy affiliate, it's great to see you here. What a cracking Bio you've written, it made for really interest reading.

I am sure you will reach your goals, just follow the training. Unfortunately you will find that you have to somewhat ignore a lot of the negative comments from your family and friends.

Remember they haven't seen what you've seen. Some of them will not want to see (ever) and just pay you lip- service. Others will not show any interest because they won't accept the possibility of earning a life changing income online. Just listen to ones that support you in your quest and give you positive feedback.

In a few months as your site improves and some money starts to trickle in the other friends and family will soon be asking questions about how you did it and could you show them.

I wish you well on your WA journey and following you to see you success.

All the best

Awesome Joana, I know you are going to really love Premium and going forward and as you work through the training, you are going to make some wonderful progress.

Remember, success is the result of "action" and "hard work". Everything else you have here at WA to facilitate you along the way, and if you add those two items to the mix you are going to do very well! :)

PS. I hope you have an absolutely amazing weekend! :) Exciting times lie ahead!

Hi Joana, your story really resonates with me. I was a single mum of four daughters for a long time, and I was looking for a way to support myself and my daughters through an online business that didn't require me to leave them in care with others. Unfortunately there are indeed a lot of scams that can appear to offer you what you are looking for. I know, as I got caught with a couple of them over the last 10 or so years.
I too have done my homework, and I have arrived at WA feeling very comfortable that the opportunity offered is real and practical and doable.
I wish you all the best.
Enjoy your journey!
Lisa

Hey Joana, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button.

Also, in case you haven't heard my stories about how I made my first dollar to how I fired my boss and never looked back, you can check them out here. Many WA members find them inspiring and it helps them understand the emotion and psychology about being a true internet entrepreneur:
