About LCEndahl
Joined July 2018
Hi, my name is Laura. I live in Indiana with my husband. About 3 years ago we bought a fixer upper down in Florida. I'm more back and forth between both states then my husband, but we do plan to retire there, eventually.

For years my husband has been telling me I could make money online, since I am online quite a bit. Then I came across WA & here I am!

I have prior experience in both web page and blog building. I still use the old school HTML. I also create graphics, that's mainly a hobby, but I'm good at it and I belong to several creative teams for designers. I believe that my experience will help me here at WA.

I'd love to find my 'niche' and be able to create enough income so that my husband can retire, and we can start the second half of our lives--empty nesters, & be able to do some of the things we've always talked about. We have 3 grown daughters, and now it is our turn to have some fun. Travel, and just enjoy our golden years.

And although that all sounds awesome, it also scares the heck out of me. To live, one needs money...I am not well enough for a full time job, in retail management, which is what I've done that last 20 years. I need income, for there's a lot of living we still have to do. And WA just may be my ticket. I know it won't come fast. And that it'll take a lot of work, but all I have right now is time. That doesn't cost me much.

Hi Laura,
It's so nice to meet you.I have seen summa' your comments around the WA halls of learning an' I must say, I DO appreciate the ways you encourage others.

I look forward to your growth, as you obviously jumped right in an' began absorbing much of the training. I'm working on doin' the same, myself.

Super wishes for much success in both your business an' your dreams of retiring your hubby. My hubby an' I are both retired an', although we don't care to travel, we are finding that we really do enjoy bein' together alla' time.

By the way, I'd love to know more about the kinda' graphics you enjoy doin'. P'rhaps we could work together, sometime?

Keep up the great work, Laura! Eyes are watching you an' you are doin' good.

Welcome to WA. You have a lot more experience with the relevant stuff than many of us.
You will quickly find that The community here is extremely helpful - if you are stuck - you ask and don't be surprised some one responding in minutes regardless of the time of day or night you ask the question.
So, again welcome and wish you all the best!

Hey there,

Just wanted to say Hi and thanks again for adding me to your network.

I'm an Ambassador because I pay it forward, add value to the community with WA blogs and training, and I send new WA members consistently with my online ad campaigns.

One of the many ways I like to pay it forward here in the community is with a free video website audit to help you get the most out of the WA training.

I do it because I see a lot of people struggling to get true financial freedom, and sometimes knowing what you don't know, helps you, so if you ever want any help or free advice enhancing your website hosted on Wealthy Affiliate, I'd be happy to do an audit by video.

I do this 100% without ANY promotion of my external services because I love Wealthy Affiliate and it's my way of giving back.

No pressure. It's an open-ended offer, whenever you need it. Always happy to help you win here!

Cheers,
--Marshall Adler

Hi, Laura!
I may be calling on you, for a graphics, question!! I've tried with independents to create my logo, to no avail. I can draw it freehand, better than, one has been able to create via computer.
Is there a suggestion for a graphics youtube or something, you might suggest. I love to learn, or any suggestions?
Thanks, Laura!

Hi Laura, thank you for the follow!

It sounds like you have really good reasons and motivations for joining Wealthy Affiliate that should help you to continue making progress.

Also, thank you for not being afraid to share that you are scared. I think that is something that most in this community can relate to whether they are willing to admit it or not. Use that to your advantage to remind you why you need to keep taking steps every day towards improving your skills here, even if they are just small steps.

Let me know if I can help with anything and good luck!

Wishing you loads of success and happiness!

I have always been told to set your expectations high and do not stop for anything. To listen to your heart and follow your dreams. You see I had big dreams when I got out of high school I wanted to become the next best thing within the professional Bass Masters circuit but my dreams got dashed away from listening to people that told me oh you cant do that well I guess this is my way of showing those people I can do anything I put my mind to. I hope that gives you some inspiration and always God Bless and I wish you nothing but Success!

Great to connect with you Laura! Sounds like skills will really assist you here Wealthy Affiliate. Not knowing anything about website building when arriving here, I had a lot to learn too.
One of my first PAYDAYS from what I learned in WA was creating a “mockup” website for a business associate who was reinventing his company's marketing pages. I did it on a siterubix FREE site using Wordpress and Kyle’s training & ChaCing... made 500 bucks! The possibilities are endless!

Laura,

Thanks for the follow and it is good to know another member of WA from Indiana.

I have been here over 2 years and would not consider another similar venture.

I have been dabbling in websites since 1999, and like you, started with HTML. I also dabble in graphics, and most of my current RV site graphics are my own. Nothing fancy, but gets me by.

Now, I will be turning to making and selling some trinket-type goodies related to RV traveling and camping. In addition, I hope to sell RV and camping related items through affiliate programs.

I also hope that some of the campground owners will want to do some advertising on my website, which now consists of 200+ pages.

I wish you the best of success here at WA and I know you can do it. It is work, but it is fun work.

Regards,
RVsRock

LCEndahl Premium
WOW, 100 pages? That's awesome. You're cranking them out.

Funny, but I was just on Pinterest checking out coaches--one can wish. Then Class C--we would like to get one an just travel all over.. Who knows maybe one day.

You sound successful already. I'd love to see your site. The best in all of your adventures.

Ok, dogs are barking, it's time to go outside.

BTW, where at in Indiana? We're in a small town south of Indy called Shelbyville.

Happy New Year,
Laura.

Been to Shelbyville gambling..........never won a dime.

I live in Westfield. If you ever get serious about a Class C, let me steer you towards one that is affordable. I bought new and that was a huge mistake. They depreciate worse than an automobile.

Check out the site sometime. A picture of my Class C is located on the Brookville, Indiana page. Website is listed on my profile page.

You certainly do have a wealth of experience, & there is so much help here with the WA Family.
Trading one's time for money - as is the traditional way of earning an income, can be fraught with heartache.
A manager, with just a few words,can let you go, sometimes with little or no real explanation.
My "nest" has long been empty with 2 boys & a girl grown up & with families of their own.
It is now your time Laura with your husband to enjoy your "golden years"

Hi, Laura.

Thanks for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network by following my profile. I graciously accept by following your profile back.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Community. You bring so much value to the platform already (everybody needs a little html from time to time) and your hobby 'creating images' would I'm sure, be cherished if you were to do some training as you progress along.

I think I've settled in rather well. I have had a few struggles with following my training, but the great WA community has helped me to carry on.

As far as expectations, I still find myself waiting for that other shoe to drop, asking me to invest more money into my training. I guess that comes with being scammed a few times.

I find this place to be astonishing, with all the training and wealth of knowledge from the members. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, but I'll get it eventually.

Thanks for your welcome Paul, and best to you,
Laura

I am also a bit scared of life sometimes for which I have my philosophy, but we should not be fearful today. We have a day as this happy day today to start and do whatever we want to get good at, and what we want to be.
I am delighted that you are a graphic designer, that itself is a niche on it own. You surely have enough experience for a lifetime of blogging about graphic design. I think it is how you approach the niche and what population group are you targeting that counts.
I joined WA some other day and yesterday I bought myself the domain name: promoteandprofit.com - "bringing together consumers and brands to a mutual benefit" or something like that as my punch line.
I straightened up my priorities and decided what is essential in my business right now. I realized Making Signups. I started looking at Pinterest and Instagram, and that is where I will start. Little reverse engineer the process of making the website.
So a whole day today I will learn about Pinterest or Instagram and hopefully will make profiles for my business on both sites.
Intrigued me when you mentioned that you love graphic design because I am setting to make a lot of graphics.

Hi! I love graphic design, but went with a different direction with my first blog. Although I do have a graphics design site, just not published yet.

Good luck with Pinterest and Instagram. I hope you do well. They tend to confuse me. So I stay with what I know..for now. LOL

ATM, I'm am bouncing back from an arthritic flare. Seems the older I get, the harder this tends to be.

I've done absolutely nothing with my site and it's killing me. But, I must focus on myself first, so that I can give 100% of myself to my blog.

Success in all you do. I hope you keep in touch,
Laura

Greetings, Laura!

I've gotten a little behind in connecting with my new followers, so I'm just taking some time to catch up and say thank you for adding me to your network.

It seems like educating people on all the elements on buying a fixer upper would be a fantastic niche! I'm not even in the market to buy one right now, but I can't get enough of those programs on Netflix!

Sometimes we spend so much time looking for the "right" niche, we overlook what's right in front of our nose... or keys, lol.

All the best to you, Laura.

Hi Veronica! And I LOVE your niche idea. Right in front of my face. Maybe in the future. Right now my niche is 50 and beyond, and that's a big part of who I am. LOL

Thank you for the suggestion! I LOVE it!
Laura

That's a great one, Laura.

Kyle has often said that the niche we start with isn't always the niche you end with, so the fixer uppers can be one that you develop later.

All the best, Laura.

Hi Laura and thanks for the welcome! I was in retail banking for 20 years. I had started as a teller and worked my way up to branch manager. I had to take an early retirement due to health issues and I am no longer able to work full time anymore. Need to be flexible with my schedule due to how I am feeling. I probably need to take my time going through these training courses, but very excited about starting this new career. I wish you much success and best of luck with WA!

Thank you Laura for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

I created a tutorial that provides you with a picture and then breaks it down into all of the various focused niches related to the picture. This helps you to find niches you may not have thought of.

When you have some time take a look at this entertaining tutorial. I give plenty of niche ideas and perhaps this will help you to come up with other niches I did not mention. Enjoy.

Thank you so much.

I believe I found a niche, and I did over think it. In fact narrowed it down so far, I had hardly anything to write about, come my second post. Thats a flaw of mine IRL!

I am off to watch you video!

Have a great day and success here at WA!!

Hello Laura And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your other online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

Hi,

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner by taking your business to the next level.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,
George
