About Kpeitz
Joined July 2015
Well, a little about myself. My name is Kelly and I'm happy to have found this site. I've wanted to work for myself for nearly my entire adult life. I completed my first career two years ago, retired after 24 years of active duty in the Army, get a good pension, but not enough to keep my family in the standard of living they are used to. I'm in my second career, and make decent money but still desire independent freedom. I want the flexibility to be at home, take my kids to their activities and simply enjoy life as I'm not getting any younger. I have hobbies I would love to be able to make a business from but simply don't have the time to dedicate to it. I came across WA by accident and I am intrigued by it. I admit, I am not tech savvy at all so this is all a little intimidating but, for some reason, I think this is something that may start me down the road I've been looking for.

Hello Kelly! Good to meet you finally. I read your profile, finally too. I have to say that we have a couple of things in common when it comes to making enough to let my family live in the comfort that they are used to and that is why I am here too. I also do not want to leave a huddle of mess that they have to clean up. Take care; talk to you soon! Thanks for all of your help too.

Yup Kelly, Oregon sure has some beautiful country. We're hoping to do quite a bit more camping and fishing up there in the future. We're still amazed at the Sierras and still have so much to explore.

I grew up in the Central valley of California, in the foothills of the Sierras... I imagine it was much like that for you coming from Oregon.

Thank ya' again for everything Kelly. Hope your new week is great!

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger

Thanks Roger,
I'm on Course 2 of the Bootcamp and have learned a tremendous amount. It is taking me some time as I work full time and have a family with two kids. I will keep plugging away. Looking forward to the time I start making some money. I know it is a process and it will come.

Don't worry about the amount of time you have available as it varies a lot between all of us. Remember the sayings you heard in the forces? How to march.... just put one foot in front of the other:-)

A bit flippant I know, but it is exactly that. Simply go through each step that Kyle shows us in the time YOU have available and you will reach your destination.

Good luck,

Roger
p.s. You might want to think about putting your first name onto your profile as I didn't know how to address you?

Kelly, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Kelly.

Thank you Kyle. I'm slowly making progress. Working full time and having two kids takes most of my available time. I will keep plugging away

Kyle,
I do have a question for you. I'm working on lesson 6 of Bootcamp course 1. In lesson 4 you had us come up with 3 themes and 10 subsets of each theme. In lesson 6 we start to write content for the 3 theme pages. Are suppose to incorporate the 10 subsets into the article or are those for future posts, etc. thanks,

Slowly but surely wins the race, so don't feel any extra unneeded pressure Kelly. You will get there.

Each page you create will target a particular keyword, so these 10 themes will most likely be built out into 10 different posts as you move forward. This is just a practice to get you moving with your keyword research.

Hope this helps you out here Kelly!

Thanks for the encouragement. I do have one critical question I need your opinion on. I received your email about the importance of reviews and you mentioned 60% should be reviews. I currently have my site set up to build reviews as subpages of my making money online theme. I set it up to list the reviews on the sidebar as well. My question is should reviews be posts or is it ok to have them as pages like I have set up. Here is the link to my page if you want to see how I set it up. Buildyourinternetwealth.com.

Thanks
Kelly

You can make everything as posts moving forward and I recommend this simply because posts go to your blog roll as well as all of them offer comments as well.

You will be able to organize your navigation through custom menus (where you can add both pages and posts to).

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Your site is looking great thus far Kelly!

Thank you for you comments. Being a perfectionist I struggle with the look and functionality of the site. I will check out the custom menu training. I think I would like a reviews tab with a drop down menu showing each product i review. I'm sure there is a way to tag my review post so they also index under the review tab on the main menu
Thanks again

Perfect doesn't lead to success. Continuous action does. Some of my best converting content ever has been what I thought was some of my worse work...and some of my most "perfected" work turned out to be the worst lol.

I would organize your pages/posts into menus that you custom make and that I suggested within the tutorial above.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!!

My name is Steph and I joined three months ago and I am absolutely loving it here. I have two websites up and running and working on a third one. I have completed the Online Entrepreneur training and am working now the the WA Bootcamp training. I have completed four phases so far of the Bootcamp.

I was already skilled in web design, but my skills were rusty. I, however, had no experience with affiliate marketing, but quickly learned and was able to get up to speed. The training is easy to follow, but if you get stuck, the community here at WA is awesome and will of course, be there to help you out.
If you are familiar with the phrase “pay it forward” that is what Wealthy Affiliate is all about. After someone helps you out, you in turn can help out others.

So, with that being said, if you need any help from me, please never hesitate to ask. Also, I have created some training which might help you out along your journey:

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Kelly is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Kelly , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

PS. I hope you have an awesome week ahead!
