About Leitah
Joined December 2016
I'm so excited to be a part of this community and to learn more about the world of online marketing. Wow Just so amazed.

I'm a writer and poet, currently laboring on the novel Loving Ophelia, a project I read for astute critique at my local writers group. I sometimes write by the name Ann London, in honor of my Jewish grandmother, Annette, who died long before I was born, and my great grandmother, Helen Louden, who drove a Ford Mustang into her eighties and lived to be ninety six. In 2012, the poet Marge Piercy selected me to participate with eleven other poets at a juried poetry workshop in Wellfleet, Mass. I am reworking poems from that workshop for publication, while also honing my portfolio to submit with applications to MFA programs in Creative Writing.

Since 1991, I've owned several businesses, the first, which commenced in Seattle as a communications firm with an office at the historic terminal building at Boeing Field. Among other jobs,I've worked as a reporter, a high-tech marketing director, and as a manager at Nordstrom after serving briefly in the US Air Force, where bland green was the new black, and I had to downplay my glamor tendencies. I also studied method acting for five years, which helped me to overcome my shyness, and prompted me to learn the art of laughing my guts out at improvisational skits. I once got to fly in a P-51 Mustang, traveling at 300 mph over the Mohave Desert, where I asked the pilot to perform every aerobatic move on the list.
At the moment, I live with my 17-year-old son, three dogs, and ten hens and two ducks on two acres with a creek, a large bridge and lots of trees. By day, I work as office manager for a counseling agency, which helps veterans with PTSD.

I enjoyed reading your very interesting profile. You have had a very complex life. Thanks for sharing. I, too, live by a creek, but have no livestock except a cat and dog.

Hello Leita,♫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.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Leita, 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 Leita.

Thanks, Kyle, I am having a blast learning and building my site. I have three sites here now, and all of them are indexed on Google. I am going to focus on the site I'll be promoting WA on, because I am so excited about WA, and, it's an excellent way to learn how affiliate programs work. My brain is buzzing with ideas of posts I can write and ways I can promote WA, while generating traffic to my site. One thing I am curious about is how I might leverage the fact that my name is already indexed on Google because I am a journalist. If you Google Leita Crossfield, you'll pull up articles I've written. Is this something that I could leverage out here on WA, through SEO somehow? It seems like I could build on that because of how Google's algorythms work.

You could leverage your name indeed, but it would be up to you. What you will want is to build a website out and choose a brand name for your business, that is the initial focus and the your website will be the foundation for your authority/success online.

If you are going to head in the direction of promoting WA, I highly recommend that you go through the Affiliate Bootcamp. That is the direction that you should be heading here and if you need a hand with anything at all moving forward let me know.

The key is getting a website in place though, you will be able to extend your personal brand and also leverage it for trust/authority as you move forward.

Hi, Leitah! Welcome to WA and congratulations on going Premium.
Wow! You are such a busy lady who has accomplished a lot in your life. A businesswoman, a reporter, a high-tech marketing director, a manager, a writer, a poet and now a novelist and soon to be an affiliate marketer. I could learn a lot from you since I have a passion for creative writing myself.
Wish you every success in your online learning business journey!
Adel :)

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Leita! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I keep a pretty good pulse of my referrals here, especially the ones that are working hard to help themselves (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so if you're willing to work hard here, I'm happy to help support you every way that I can!

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

Thank you. I want to say that I am very impressed with the online community here and the technology behind it that makes it all work. It's very motivating to see progress, to win "badges," and to have people post on comments. It adds a great deal of confidence to this journey. Thank you.

The badges are a fairly new, but very cool addition :) If you hang around for a while, you'll see that Kyle and Carson are VERY committed to continuously improving this members area to enable people to become more and more successful.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, Leita! I think you’ll find that this is a great place to be a part of! The training is second to none – tons of tutorials, training videos and Entrepreneur Certification courses. The first 10-lesson course is free to Starter Members but it tells you everything you need to know to get your website up and running. You’ve probably been pointed in that direction but here’s the link to the first lesson I highly recommend that you jump into the lesson and course!

If I can do anything to help, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm here to help!

Also, I want to take a moment to wish you the very best!
Mike

Hey Leita! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
