About JoAnnBass
Joined July 2014
Updated: July 29, 2014

Hello, I'm JoAnn. I've worked in retail, the food industry, done office work, both through temp agencies and as direct hire.

While I was raising my four children, I did some home business ventures. I ran a day care center out of my home for several years, then when my husband's grandchildren from his first marriage came to live with us, I felt seven small children at once was quite enough to take care of.

At that point I decided to offer my services to people in need of resumes and other typing or word processing done for them. Soon, my little ones became teens and demanded my full attention, so I withdrew from that occupation as well.

By the time my second child turned 16, my husband and I separated and I needed to start earning an income. I started in a seasonal job with a photo lab and eventually underwent training to become a customer service rep for a banking company.

By then, I had met my second husband and my two oldest children had moved out on their own. Soon, I developed health problems that prevented me from holding down an outside job and ever since I have been trying to find ways to make an income online.

I had always had an interest in computers, in fact, we started out with home computers as soon as they were made available. I had made websites of my own back when you had to write it yourself in html. I tried various programs and like many of you, I lost a good amount of money to these with no results.

I never stopped searching though, and of course, here I am now at WA. I know this is right, it's completely different from anything else I had found. Now I am working my way through the lessons and though I haven't any content on my page yet, I am working on it. I'm still narrowing down the direction I want to take with it and making choices before I start putting it on the site.

I'd like to thank everyone here at WA for the supportive atmosphere and let you know not to think I'm not making progress. Just be patient and watch. You'll see concrete proof very shortly now.

Anyone who can handle 7 little kids at once is a hero in my book! If you did that, you can surely do this! If I can help you in any way, please ask.

Hi JoAnn, thanks for your comment on my website. I have visited your website, it is empty. I saw the social buttons on the side. So you can see my point that you need to focus on the important. The social buttons are useless until you have contents.
I wish you all the success.

Thanks so much, Tria. I was just reading some of your blog posts. Very informative content there. Was saddened to hear about the recent plagiarism in the community, and very surprised to learn about the charging for business accounts on Twitter! Please keep up the great work! JoAnn

Hi, Kyle. Thanks for checking in. Haven't been on too much yesterday and today, crazy things happening at home. I'll be back in full swing by Friday, though. Meantime, still 'working', running ideas through my head for when I can be back here fully. Also doing some research online every moment I can grab to do so.

Sounds good Joann, it is a busy time of year for many of us just try to dedicate some free time to this when you get it. It will pay off and before you know it you will have your own niche website up and running.

If you need a hand with anything going forward, just let me know. :)
