About Joanne-G
Joined March 2017
Hi! I'm not sure how much to share about myself, but here I go :-)

My life work is more of a calling grounded in human potential development, personally and professionally. For over twenty years, an integral part of my lifework has been bouncing back and forth between corporate and non-traditional work: consulting in workplace learning & development (specializing in eLearning) with a focus on the people side of organizational change management, and mentoring and coaching in work-life design - career counselling and personal development/holistic lifestyle and wellness. As a lifelong learner, I dedicated my learning to achieve skills and credentials so I could best align with my professional calling - I'm a university trained adult educator (B.Ed and M.Ed in Adult Education), career counsellor, and for personal growth, I've achieved master-level certifications as a holistic practitioner certified in multiple self-help modalities: Energy therapy- Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy, Quantum Touch, Access Consciousness - Bars; Neuro-Linguistic Programming; and life coaching.

But now, I want to focus on creating the lifestyle and financial freedom for myself and my family that will enable me to reach more people through online presence, and work remotely from anywhere in the world - particularly, to get out of our cold Canadian winters and live tropically a few months each year. My love for travel has taken me to interesting places so travel writing / blogging is also on my radar. I intend to achieve this by providing personal development resources, strategies, online courses, and group coaching and sharing useful products through affiliate blogging, and online entrepreneurship activities.

I’m excited about creating a successful wealth-generating online business that can reach people globally, enable me to live in warm climates during my cold Canadian winters, and continue traveling the world at my convenience. I think the WA community is a good place to explore this new way of living, and meet like-minded people who are also looking at building financial wealth and independence.

I welcome your friendship!
Joanne

Hi Ariel,

I suspect we do share more than we realize. I read you About page on your website. It brought tears to my eyes. You see, when I was a 3 year old girl, I developed Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was crippled and after knee surgery, a full year living in the hospital working with a tough love physiotherapist, I was sent home in a full body cast and crutches, told I'd never walk again on my own. Upon walking into my house, I threw my crutches down, and chased after my sisters.

Being too young to remember when, I suspect shortly after my body cast came off, I started to walk.It was a tough childhood as there were no psycho-social supports in place back then,

I think you and I are special! I'm glad I took the time to read about you on your website.
Like I said, you inspire me, and I look forward to us thriving with our heart-centred work!

Journey Well,
Joanne

I am inspired also by you. I look forward to sharing this journey together and hope we keep connecting.
indeed, here is to changing the world through one heart centered smile at a time!
showers of blessings,ariel

Thanks for adding me to your network, Joanne. I enjoyed reading your profile. Welcome to our community.:-)

I lived in Toronto, Canada before moving to Australia. I can relate to wanting to live in warm climates. Though I confess to missing a snowy white Christmas even after 25 years in sunny Sydney,

Our community is here for you - and me too - let us know if you need a hand with anything. All the best. ~Jude

Hi MsMerry,thanks for the kind welcome.

I must admit, I've abandoned WA a few times since I joined early Spring. The technical stuff held me back, so I decided this week to push through because I realize there's sooo much more to work through with WA materials to get anywhere near where I want to be in a year.

I look forward to learning and growing my business with the WA community!

All the best as you do that Joanne. Just shout if you need help. If I can't help someone else usually can.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

I was thinking about something to do with helping people live well with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I've had it since I was 3 years old, and live medication-free with a holistic lifestyle. So I thought I could share my lifestyle experiences with other to help them feel in control of living naturally pain-free with their autoimmune disease.

The problem I'm finding is that most "products" out there are pharmaceutical drugs or some kind of medication that I really don't want to be associated with.

Thinking along the lines of holistic programs and offerings, such as mediation, natural body products, things that help with living with a holistic self-care mindset and approach.

Does anyone have any other ideas that can be associated with natural wellness and RA?

I really appreciate any insights! :-)
Thanks for any feedback.

Sure, you could definitely head in this direction and there are many natural cures, solutions, and help people are looking forward (outside of pharmaceuticals).

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Joanne!

Hi Kyle, I've been digging a bit more, even on Amazon to see what people buy for RA - books, support products, etc. I think it's a big area, but as I'm just starting out - still in lesson 1, I want to explore more the questions you listed above.

Is strategy for this explained in later classes?
Reply
Kyle Premium
People buy everything. EVERYTHING. To convert the best, you want to be relevant to your audience.

Relevant keyword => Relevant content => Relevant recommendation

That is the process for maximizing the conversions, it isn't always the most popular product that will convert, it is the most relevant.

Does WA content cover these strategies in later courses?

Kyle Premium
Yes, most definitely and of course if you ever need to run a post by me where you are promoting something, I can offer you feedback as well.

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Joanne and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Sent an email earlier. Just weeding through the emails I got from you and Carson. Just set up my profile! Yay!!! Sorry, to miss your Premium offers, but this job loss sent me for a loop, and I'm only getting online today. I'll keep plugging away at your emails over the week, and getting excited!! :-)
Thanks for what appears to be a very wealth of resources, and personal touch!

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Hi Kyle,
I don't have my VISA with me right now, it's 7:40 pm, and I'm not at home, but would you honour the Premium special you offered earlier today if I sign up in the morning?
Thanks for considering!
Good night!
