About KTurman1
Joined April 2017
Myself? Hmmm. Mother of two, grandmother of two, widow, survivor of brain aneurysm. Some people who know me describe me as a very strong woman, but I am simply like everyone else -- a work in progress! When life throws me a curve, I deal with it the best that I can and rely on family and friends to help as they are able! Both children are grown, although my son has autism which causes him to function much younger than he physically is. My blogs center around my life experiences, in the hopes that I can show others that they are not alone and can also overcome!

Hi, Kristin. Welcome to WA! It's nice to meet you. Thank you for following me. I have followed you back. Like you, I have a son who is on the autism spectrum. He is an absolute joy and has changed my perspective in life. He taught me how to appreciate everything in life no matter how small it is, it's still a blessing. Because of him, I learned that it takes a lot of patience, perseverance, a positive mindset and hard work to be able to achieve something valuable in life. He thought me to pursue my passion which is to help others. How about you? What did your son teach you?
All the best to your future endeavours!

Thank you for following me back! I love meeting people here, especially others who are or have dealt with autism! I have learned many of the same things from my son -- and in addition, I have learned that I am a lot stronger than I ever imagined! My niche website is about autism -- general information as well as some of my experiences. With my son, I have walked the paths of adoption, diagnosis, special education and residential care! Hopefully my site will help other parents realize that they are not alone!
Best wishes to you!

Thank you for following me back! I am jealous -- you have lived in the two places that I have always wanted to visit: Australia and Ireland! Maybe someday!!! I love meeting new people and networking here at WA! Best wishes!

:) I loved Ireland Kristin. Being the closer of the 2 to you, you just HAVE to make a trip there. Such lovely, friendly, laid back, awesome, beautiful people.

As a word of warning ... you won't have a clue what they're saying when you first arrive lol It's like they're talking a whole new language. Definitely not English. Then, just when you get used to the twang, you'll arrive in county Donegal and think you've arrived in another country altogether. It's all so beautiful.

Best wishes to you too :)

Thank you for the information! Although my ancestry is a mixed bag (as is the case for many in the US), I do have some Irish blood in me -- therefore my interest! My boyfriend, who is a retired Army combat veteran, has been there as well as many other places. He is 3/4 Italian so insists I need to go to Italy -- I told him only if we go to Ireland as well! LOL

My interest in Australia stems from childhood -- for some reason that country has always fascinated me! I think it might be the kangaroos and koalas! LOL

Have a great day!

KTurman, Oh, do we have a lot in common! I have two grown daughters, two son-in-laws, two grandsons and have just become the grandma to a 10-year-old Chihuahua who my daughter rescued her from a shelter, she had been a stray. She has had so much trauma she gets afraid because she fears abandonment. She is helping me build the website because she often wants to be held! My website is about creating a peaceful balanced life because I am retired now. I got burnt out because of the stress of being a single parent, working full-time and going to school full-time so it sounds like our goals are very similar. Good luck of course, how to hear from you often. Dee

Thanks for the follow! I'm following you back. I've been here since 2009, but took a few months off, but I missed everyone at WA, was offered a great deal for coming back, so decided to take them up on it and came back. I'm really interested in self-development and metaphysics, and am working on writing a Kindle book (or books, lol) to build a list. I think I'm getting braver and am going to finish my courses and build my business, and later my ministry (after I finish my degree program-I'm going for a doctorate in Holistic Ministry). Hope things are going well for you.

Dear Kris,

Thank you in return. I am not an open person, but I can tell you, my four children and I had our share of consciously inflicted set back over the past 20 years, due to a drenched with revenge ex husband.

Whatever I set my mind on, was kicked into the gutter by the system of judges and lawyers. This period was for us bitter and filled with hardship on the one hand. On the other hand, though, we were almost forced to keep counting, polishing and cherishing all of our blessings - and believe me, the more you pay attention to blessings, the more they grow. We managed to keep up with gratitude, which I consider a blessing as well!

And now I have found WA - I am determined, kicking my heels in to overcome any language barrier, to bring my WA enterprise into full fruition. I hope and want ( between brackets) to succeed in an online business.

In one word - we found ourselves in the grinder as well and in the first place, I want to show my children, that once a big No, does not mean, that every door on the face of the earth is locked forever. Ths sun shines for everybody and we, living in the Netherlands, still find ourselves in the favourable position that we easily can start walking on the sunny side of the street.

Inspiring your children is the best upbringing. You as a loving mother will be aware of this miracle approach as well.

Let's keep in touch - thank you for your personal note.

Henriette.

Good afternoon Kristin,

Reading your profile that is a plate full I must say. It is so sad these modern illnesses which in big part can be bettered or even avoided. I personally think we have turned away from nature and that often is the cause.
In case you need a good source for writing do look at the post on the world library and please do not miss my last on the "battle" I had yesterday with that virus.

I would never scold and I do not think you were being "stupid" -- that term does not actually exist in my vocabulary! Everyone is capable of making a mistake -- I know that I have personally made many!

It’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Hello Kristin,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

My husband was 22 years older than me. He had 2 surviving biological children that he was estranged from. I contacted their mother when he got sick but they chose not to see him. Last summer (5 1/2 years after he died) the son who is now 51 contacted me on FB, regretting the fact that he did not take the time to get to know his biological father while he had the chance! So I can relate to your situation!

Looking for some advice -- at the present time, my boyfriend pretty much pays all the bills, etc. I have already signed up for Premium and now in Course 2 I am being asked to purchase a domain. From those who have been with WA for some length of time, is there a big advantage to doing this? I have read through the training -- just wondering if this could be done at a later time or if it is best to do it now. Thanks in advance!
Reply
ericcantu Premium
You can do it later with no problem. If you start on a free siterubix domain and then decide later you want to purchase one you own you'll be able to move the content over with the click of a button. It's pretty easy. Start with free and get your feet wet :) Nothing wrong with that.
Reply
Dmorrow Premium
Good question. You can do it later although it should only cost around $15.00 at most and that is an annual fee. You can continue for a while with a siterubix but a .com carries more weight with most search engines and you will eventually want to do that. I promise you, there are no other fees or charges you will need to pay. There is Jaaxy to use for keyword searches but I don't use it - WA has a free keyword search tool.

Hope that helps you in making your decision.

Blessings,
Debby

Thank you! My boyfriend is a bit skeptical about this so I don't want to spend too much up front....But since I saved on the Premium membership, I can probably get him to approve another $15. I want this to be successful and it sounds like that is probably the way to do it.

Regarding your URL (domain name) question, yes you can do it later. However, if you are at the level where you are instructed to buy it, then it means you won't be able to move on much unless you do. Yes, you can build a SiteRubix site for free, but your own personal .com website address (domain name) is where you eventually want to be. There is good instruction in the training on how to select a domain name.....take your time with it and don't be in a hurry. A good domain name, which is relevant to your website niche, can be an important ingredient in your eventual success.

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 have my first one -- parents coping with autism. Still debating on the next one!

I am thinking about completing the affiliate bootcamp but would like your advice! Is it better to go through the 10 certification courses first or to start in on the bootcamp first?

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Kristin!

Looking for some advice! I am about to start Course 2 of the Certification courses but also know that I want to do the Affiliate Bootcamp. Would you recommend finishing the 10 Certification courses first before starting the Bootcamp?

Looks like you've reached a fork in the road. No worries, I went through the same thing. You should only choose 1. May I suggest, from previous experience, go with the thing you're truly passionate about.

Kyle, the co-owner, recommends you should work on one website for at least a year before you start another one. PM me if you would like further explanation, I dont mind.

If you're passionate about your niche it may be easier to write without having to struggle with it. Plus, I believe you can offer your readers the most value this way; from a level of expertise.

Hope this helps,
Jonathan

Yes, it does help! I was leaning towards my niche as I am very passionate about it -- helping parents cope with autism. I just was not sure whether I was headed in the right direction or not!

Thank you for helping out!

Well, I have been through almost everything with my son's autism other than the fact that he is verbal. Right now he is in residential care 3 hours away from me -- if I can help even one family avoid that or aid in helping make that decision easier on them, I am more than willing to do it!
