About Laura3
Joined September 2016
I live in Oroville, CA with my husband, Ken.

I worked as a public safety dispatcher for over 25 years. During that time, I served as a member of two hostage negotiation teams and was instrumental in developing my department’s first tactical dispatch team. I thoroughly enjoyed my job and feel blessed to have been able to help people for so many years. It was a very rewarding career..

Since 2013, I have been trying out various ways to make money on-line. I started out by writing two e-books: "How To Start Your Own Mortuary Transportation Business", followed in 2014 by "Tips From An Emergency Dispatcher - The Book To Read Before You Need 911". The books have done so-so on the Amazon kindle platform, but the experience of writing them was very worthwhile.

For awhile now, I have been selling products through Amazon's FBA program (you send your products into Amazon and they send them to the customer). I love the way FBA works, but frankly I have been a bit discouraged lately because there are so many changes taking place on Amazon that affect third party sellers. Not to mention, it is extremely time consuming doing the research and trying to find profitable items to sell.

I signed up for Wealthy Affiliates because I want to have more than one way to sell on-line, and I want to feel a little more in control than I do with selling on Amazon. I was intrigued with the information I learned about the WA program, and I am hopeful that,with some hard work and determination, affiliate selling may be a good fit for me.
.
In addition to learning about on-line selling, I also enjoy driving classic cars, taking zumba, going line dancing and playing with my dog, Shelby. .

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I wish all of you the best !

Hi Kyle. Thanks so much for reaching out and making sure all is going well with the lessons. I'll be working on lesson 5 tonight. I don't really have any questions at this time, and I will definitely be upgrading to a premium membership. I am very grateful to so many of the members who have already reached out to share their knowledge. I hope you have a great weekend!

Hello Laura and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
In the little time you've been here you will have found out that that internet marketing can be a steep steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Laura 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.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

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! :)

Thank you Kyle. I seem to have the opposite problem with picking a niche.......there are SO many ideas popping into my head! I think my biggest problem right now is not knowing how to effectively research a niche idea - but I'm sure I'll be learning how to do just that as the lessons progress. Thanks for reaching out...I'm enjoying your course very much.

You can have as many websites as you want as time goes on, it is likely that your first website will not be your last but do know that it only takes ONE website/niche to be very successful online.

I actually posted about this a few months back and I think you will find this thread very interesting and informative: Hope this helps you out here. :)

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Laura!
Congrats on taking the first step towards building a profitable affiliate business!

My name's Kyle (not to be confused with the other Kyle, one of WA's founders) and I wanted to reach out and welcome you to the community, and offer any help you need along the way.

WA has a huge community-centric focus, so the first step you should take is to add a picture and write a few lines about yourself on your profile. Nothing fancy, but it goes a long way in helping you connect with others.

Start Building Your Site TODAY

My biggest suggestion to get going is simply to take action!

So many people 'think' about building an online business, and so few actually take the steps to get there. You've already started the process by joining WA. That's a HUGE step and I know you're probably both nervous and excited to get going.

Once you fill out your profile, you can start setting up your site by following the green "Get Started Here" button.

Lastly, Laura, there's one more thing I want you to remember:

Every single person on this site was once exactly where you are today. We're all living proof of how well this system works. If you ever feel overwhelmed, don't hesitate to ask for help. Break things down into small tasks, but keep going!

The key to success is simply to keep forging ahead. Small steps today will lead to big payouts in a few months!

Kyle
