About Laurenjean
Joined November 2015
I am a Wife, Mother & Writer living in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. Aka Mom Blogger in the Mother City.

I feel really blessed to have happened upon Wealthy Affiliate just when I started looking for ways to make money online - Thank You, Steve @ivetriedthat

I've been a Premium Member since 18th Jan 2016 and I've built two Mommy Blogs.

I started with Happy Human Pacifier, Shining the Spotlight on Breastfeeding Moms. I'm an Attachment parent, I believe in full term nursing, allowing your little one to wean naturally, gradually.

On this site, I publish articles and interviews mothers with inspiring nursing stories, e.g. inducing lactation to breastfeed adopted or surrogate babies, tandem feeding a toddler and a baby, breast milk donation. I've also featured some of the other Mom Bloggers I've met on Wealthy Affiliate - The Pumping Mommy @HeatherGrace and Rina of livingwithlowmilksupply @fiftarina.

My second site was Inspiring Mompreneurs, Shining the Spotlight on Mom Entrepreneurs.

Here I feature Mompreneurs, Mom Bloggers and Mom Inventors who inspire me, some of them are names you'll know. Loes Knetsch @loes, Jude Portman @judeP, Sonia J Bergeron @SJB, Sherry Green @SGreen2016, Audrey Ostoyic @livinlyfe, Helen Vella @hvella, Rina @fiftarina and more to follow.

I've been building content for a year and half and now I'm starting to monetize.

Absolutely love the community spirit at WA. I've made wonderful friends here through WA blogging, commenting on WA blogs and commenting on websites (using the site comments tool).

Always keen to connect with fellow Mom Bloggers... drop me a comment if we're not already in touch. Send me a private message if you'd like to be featured on one of my sites.

It sounds like you've got two great niches. I love how you are featuring people. I hope to do that myself once I get some steady traffic to my website.

My kids are young men now, so it's hard to believe that once upon a time that I breastfed them.

Thanks for challenging us to challenge you on SiteContent platform.

Hi! Laurenjean,
It is nice to meet via WA platform. And I just read your profile revealing we have so much in common like common humanity focusing on holistic natural healing, and digital entrepreneurship.
Notably, your achieving ability impressed me and drew me to learn something from you.

Without further saying, I would like to invite you to be my mentor to critique what you see and find in www.ebettercare.com so to push it into its designated orbit of the e-marketing sphere as soon as possible.

Again, it is nice to meet you and appreciate continuing mutual support for success.

Best regards,


James

Hi, Lauren, lovely to meet you. I lived in CT a few years ago (ended up in Fish Hoek) so it's lovely to connect with someone from the city with the mountain that wears a tablecloth :)

Congratulations on your sites and accomplishments. It's awesome to see you doing so well.

Wishing you every success and more

Hi, it is great to connect with you here! I just joined yesterday and i'm on my 7 day trial period. I just happened to land on your profile and really liked all that you are doing. Really wanted to know how your experience has been and how long it took you and all the ups and downs that you have been having and how you are doing now in terms of making money from the sites you have now created! I very much want to join and firstly create quality content for people around the world and my passion is to look after my parents as they enter retirement by joining WA.

Hi Stephan, the short answer to your question is Go For It! WA has all the training and tools you need to build your online career. Don't be in a rush to earn, give it time.
My advice to you starting out is:
Build your own free website in your first couple of weeks by following the Online Certification Training.
Then do Bootcamp Phase 1.
Then upgrade to Premium, the first month is only $19.
Continue with your Online Certification Training and Bootcamp Training.
On 24 November WA will most likely run their Black Friday special. If they offer the same special as last year you will be able to buy an entire year at WA for around $299 and be locked into that rock-bottom price forever.
Take advantage of the Black Friday Special. Go Yearly.
That gives you a year to build rich content and start making some affiliate sales. Wishing you all the best.

Thanks, Lauren jean, I do take in that advice and will do as you say. Slow and steady.

Would it be okay if I take your help at times just to run you through my thoughts process and niches etc? If there was someone I would like to be 2 years from now - you would be the perfect role model. Thanks!

Hi, Laurenjean! I just came from reading your excellent review article of Wealthy Affiliate which you entitled in such a fabulous way "How To".

As I stated in my comment posted below the article, Wealthy Affiliate definitely provides clear answers to so many "how to" questions that any person looking to create a profitable online business would need to know before committing.

I wish you continued success in your online business, Laurenjean!

Hello laurenjean, thank you for the follow. I will be following you as well.

Wow, what a story!! You have a very busy life.

I am sorry to say, but I am not familiar with your works, but I will be before long.

I breast fed my son until he weined himself at a little over 2 years of age. I caught a lot of flack for allowing him to breast feed for that long, but I didn't care. I figured that he would stop feeding when he no longer needed me. I was more than happy to be there for him. We have an amazing relationship and I contribute a lot of it to the lengthy breast feeding.

Please send me a location where I find your blogs, I am very interested.

Best of luck and let's stay in touch!!

Tammi

Hi Tammi, thanks for sharing your lovely story. My son is all but weaned now (he's nearly 4) and I also took some flack for continuing so long but it wasn't about me or them, it was about him. :) I'm so glad I allowed him to wean naturally, gradually.
My blog URL's are to the right below my profile images and WA blogs and trainings. That's the one place we are allowed to advertise our sites on WA. :)
Will be lovely to keep in touch.

My best friend breast fed all her kids until they were almost 4, but I thought that was a long time! but 2 is nothing compared to 4 girl! :) It's good bonding time up until 2 :)

I know that my son and I have a relationship that is unlike some of the relationships where some mothers did not breast feed at all, or just for a few months. We are so "tuned" into one another...it's great!!!

As a human pacifier mumpreneur, that does AP, as well as natural term feeding and self-weaning, your writing resonates with me so much. Off to follow you everywhere, lol!

So glad WA is making things happen for so many mumpreneurs (as well as everyone else, of course). I'm only 4 week in and I feel so at home here, I doubt I'll ever leave, lol!

Hello Lauren, thank you for connecting with me. I love your bio profile and so glad to hear your site/s are starting to monetize.

Nursing was one of the many things I was adamant about with my 2 boys. Something I could never understand is there were women friends around me who were appalled by it. Had a friend once actually ask me to go into the bedroom while she was visiting in my own home if I was "gonna do that"! Even though I had a cover draped over me. Unbelievable! My child was a newborn at the time. I think there is lots of education needed out there as to all the great benefits of this natural process for our children. Also, I know there are many accomplished Mompreneurs, Bloggers, and inventors out there that should be recognized. Kudos to you and your work! I am honored to follow you here in your success!

Thanks Cindy! Oh my goodness... I am shocked at that story!! Its hard for me to understand that kind of mindset - to be against something so natural.

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! :)

Hi. I've read your profile and it's my pleasure to meet you. I'm one of those mom who wasn't able to breastfeed my babies because I thought it will all be natural. After failing at breastfeeding, I started to search about breastfeeding using Google. I'm really proud of your effort to help other moms with breastfeeding issues. It means a lot. :)
