About Kathy1952
Joined November 2012
Hi! My name is Kathy.

I am a 60 years old and lost my very stable, very secure (ha! ha!) job in January 2009. I have been struggling ever since. They say 60 is the new 50, but not when it comes to the job market these days. No one even wants a 50 year old no matter how great I tell them I am!

When I first lost my job, I spent thousands of dollars to do internet marketing and I failed miserably. The help that I received was vague and I just gave up. But, I still believe in the concept and lets just say, after 3 years, I am highly motivated to spend my time doing something more worthwhile then spending all of it searching for the illusive JOB.

I am a grandmother of two wonderful boys, ages 6 and 3 whom I love dearly. I own 6, yes, that's right, 6 chihuahuas (all but 1 rescued) whom I love dearly. I love to read and I love to write, which should help me with this business.

Money Goals
Well, I'm sure I answered this in 2012 when I first joined but that answer is probably in the black hole of the website by now. So, since I've been away for 2 years I will give my answer for the present:
1) I'd be happy to earn enough money to support myself financially each month 2) I'd be ecstatic if that doubled. Knowing myself the way I do, I'm shooting for 1 hour a day and increasing that as I move forward. Here's to everyone's success!!

Hey there Kathy

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Welcome aboard WAU, Kathy! There is an enormous amount of information here, so there really is no excuse for both of us not making it in IM. I wish you the very best of luck. See you around the site!

Thanks for the follow. As Steve said Welcome to the community. You have a few years on me but given the economic environment these days it doesn't make sense to work for someone else. I've been here a few years and have a good handle on things but every day is an adventure.
I learn something new every day by putting myself out there. I'm amazed at the level of talent that I see both online and in my other life. Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting an upstream battle but each day I come closer to full independence as well.
You have found the right place to learn this new medium.

hey kathy - welcome to wa - i know what you mean about the job market - i'm 56 and you think i was asking someone to french kiss the bubonic plague - all seriousness aside i'm creating an executive director job for myself - i really like your dress - i mean i wouldn't wear it but it looks good on you - are you an ocean fanatic? - again - back to semi-consciousness - sorry about your job - it's a culture shock - been thru 1 or 2 myself - if you like to write then you're in the right business and this place is a heck of a starting point - i came from zero knowledge and 5 mos later i feel really comfortable about IM - wish you the best of luck with your IM career - if you need any help give me a jingle

Thanks for your note, Steve, and the encouragement. I guess you could say I'm a water person. This shot is in Avalon, Catalina Island where I was on my birthday weekend with my daughter and mom. We had lots of fun. I'm looking forward to getting involved with WA and I'm excited about it. So much to learn though! I'm encouraged that you are feeling comfortable after 5 months. Hope that happens for me soon!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)
