About Littlemama
Joined September 2016
Hello! I'm Grace, mom of two girls & wife to an awesome man, living in the USA and I want to get serious with this making money online business!! I want to make some real steady income so I can financially contribute to my family. I've created two online shops of handmade products before I joined WA, but I want to create something else that is less time/labor intensive and create a passive income. I feel I'm at the right place as I'm finally learning what I should be learning and not getting sucked into all those online scams that don't offer real learning content.

I have set some goals when I started here and I hope I can achieve them in due time. I'm so excited to be here and can see that with all the support/training here, I don't think I can lose! Success is right there in front of me, I just have to go out and GRAB IT! :)

Wishing everyone here much success!!

hi. I found your site workanywherenow and I have a question. I'm not sure I understand the difference between the bootcamp and the other option. I would like to make a site, get affiliated products links to sell. which one do you recommend? another thing... how long does it takes to see at least a few sales on my site once I have it up?

thanks

It depends on what your niche is. My site is about how to make money online, if you want to do the same niche as my site, then you just use Bootcamp.

If you decide on anything else as a niche, then use the other OEC course.

You need to follow the training, and it will show you how to build your site.

How long does it take depends on how much you work on your site and how closely you follow the training. No one can tell you when you'll make your first dollar as no one knows how hard you will work and at what pace you learn at.

Hope this helps,
Grace

Hi Grace, I'm having some trouble again. As I go along with the training there are words and steps coming up that I don't understand, like when I asked for feedback I got one that was really great but the other one said they couldn't access my webpage, I don't understand that if it can't be reached is there something I missed doing? Also I understand the concept of keywords but I can't figure out how and where to make my list. Can you please look at my page and tell me what I am not doing?
Reply
littlemama Premium
Was the 2nd commenter commenting on the same page as the first one? Why someone catch reach a page is usually becuase you didn’t provide them with the right URL (your website link to that particular page you want comment on).

Keywords- a couple of people answered your question already as well as myself, look at your notifications (bell icon top right menu) to see our replies to all your questions.

Hi Grace, congratulations, your post is very professional and well thought out, great way to show your progress, did you learn that from Smart Passive Income or from these guys?

Do you have a link to your sites anywhere, couldn't see it on your profile?

Cheers Michelle

PS. Have an awesome holiday, are you going to setup emails to go out to your list every week while you are away?

Hi Grace, I hope all is well. I am having an understanding problem with my product review. I am discussing how to vacation cheap. I am link to Cheapoair they do airlines, hotels and vacation packages can you just guide me on this the video just does a product should ido a review on Ceapoair the company.My website is
101cheapvacations.com/cheap-vacations-cheap-deals Thanks for the help as always. I have my google alerts set up.
Reply
littlemama Premium
Yes if the lesson calls for a product review, you should be reviewing the site Cheapoair. The article you linked above is just ways to find cheap vacations so it’s different becuase when you review Cheapoair, you will be talking about why that site is best to use for cheap rates and such. Talk about their customer service, what services they offer, etc, basically everything about that site and then whether or not you recommend them using it.

So there are many ways to use Cheapoair in your posts if that’s your main affiliate program you want to use.

I hope this helps, but please ask more if I haven’t answered your question fully. :)

Hi Littlemama,

Two days back I really wanted to give up on doing this, but at some point I stumbled at one of your post and I started reading the rest.
Suddenly, I felt fired up to continue my website.
Just want to thank you and I hope I will be reading more of your new updates

Best of luck to you!

I'm 77 years old and I don't want to quit. I won't let my friends tell me I can't do it. I may be a little slower at understanding but if it's the last thing I do, I will build a website. All I need is a little help. There is so much i don't know yet but I am going to go back to the first trying lesson and go thru them all again until I get iy!

I don't want to quit but I am getting nowhere, I change my about me page and I published it but when I open my site the old one is there.
I added menu settings and saved them but it appears as 0 items in my menu. All that published was the privacy policy. I can view the theme i chose to see how things will look on the webpage or if they even appear at all. How do I do that?
I know you have been very patient with me but I get so lost and I really really want to do this. I go to the site it says to and there are a bunch of boxes that have to be filled out and I don't know what to put in them because I don't understand what they are asking for.
I really am working on this day and night but I can't get anything added that I want and I follow the videos.

Hi littlemama, I have tried everything I can and came up with the conclusion that I am just to stupid to learn all of this and I am going to give it up. I can't get a website going! I followed Kyle's video on changing my theme and activated it but then when it came to inserting my content it seems to a dead end again. I just can't get a website completed, it isn't that hard i know, it can't be but I'm just not understanding missing piece. I guess I just need to forget it. I've spent day and night on this for two weeks or more and gotten nowhere.
Reply
littlemama Premium
Sorry to hear this, that's okay. Sometimes I wish I can sit beside people to help them learn, but I can't really do that for everyone either, so if you don't feel this is for you then you could try something else.

Sometimes people learn in different ways and maybe this is not the right environment for you.

Whatever you decide, you can always keep your login info to come back to anytime. You could pause/cancel your membership and come back some time later.

If there's anything else I can help you piece together, I'll be happy to but if you feel this is not for you, then that's okay too! :)

Have a great week!

Hi "littlemama" (love the name, btw),

Glad to have come across your comment on Carson's new article. I noticed you've been on WA for almost 2 years! I'm sure you have a lot of wisdom from your experiences.

May I ask though, I noticed you mentioned you don't share your website on WA anymore - may I ask the reason? Just as a precaution for myself.

Any other words of advice you could share would be very enlightening - been here 4 months now I think.

Thanks!

littlemama Premium
Thanks very much Chase for your kind words!

My niche is just very competitive and I also want to keep my traffic as organic as possible.

Words of advice, follow the training, produce lots of content with low hanging fruit keywords, and work even when you're not earning.

If you can do all that, you can make a living online! :)

Wish you much success!

Hi Chase, yes sticking with it and working even harder when you're not earning is the best thing you can do for your site. Your site is still young but should start to begin to gain some traction, just keep at it and it won't disappoint you! :)

Aw thank you for saying so, that is really encouraging. Someone shared a great quote to an old blog post of mine (where I shared my worries for bad traffic): "Build it and they will come." Very applicable saying. Thanks for your support! I appreciate you taking the time - I'll keep working hard!

Hey, I love the way you think about going on in your career. Im new and waiting for an error to be solved to continue my lessons. One question, When making a blog how do you get paid through it? By ads or referrals or how exactly? Any information will be great, and hopefully you will achieve what you want!

Hi and welcome to WA!

How this works is in Lesson 2, you can't even get to lesson 2? You will learn about affiliate programs you will need to sign up for from companies you want to promote products from. Once you sign up, you get affiliate links to put on your site, in your posts. When someone visits your site, clicks on the affiliate links, it brings them to the merchant site, if they buy the product, you make a commission.

That's how it works in a nutshell but there's tons you'll need to learn obviously. There are 5 Levels, you only get the first one free.

Best of luck to you!
Grace

Hi I am just restarting on WA. I joined for a couple of months in 2016 before I started on a really great full time job. Due to some terrible career decisions I made recently, I am really keen to get back into this IM business. I am still on a full time job, but I am seriously thinking of IM as an alternative income.

I need some help with trying to figure with direction I should go, my interest are Pro Wrestling History, Real Estate investing and owned 9 houses, was in Law Enforcement for 25 years and I have been to 18 states and 10 countries all vacationing. I would prefer to do something I know or comfortable with.
Thank you.

littlemama Premium
Hi John,

All those topics you listed can really be a niche of its own so it's just a matter of choosing the one that you most prefer and are comfortable with.

Once you have picked one, then think about if you can narrow it down a bit (I can help with this once you let me know what you will settle on).

You want to start your site with a narrower niche but have room to grow when your site is bigger and more established.

So when you name your site, don't be too specific but have a name that will tell people what your site is about.

I hope this helps! :)

Hello Grace, I am not really understanding what I am doing. If I am in bootcamp and trying to setup a website for WA, then why do I have to pick a niche for a website of my own.? Trying to write something about myself doesn't make sense when I am trying to tell people about WA.
Reply
littlemama Premium
Hi Mickey,

You pick promoting WA or you pick something else, you don’t have to do both and in fact not advised in the beginning as one site is already a lot of work.

So pick a niche, one that you like and want to work on as your online business.

Then you follow the course for the niche you pick:
1. If you pick a niche of your own, you do the main training called Online Entrepreneur Certification.
2. For promoting WA, you do Affiliate Bootcamp course.

Please let me know if you’re still confused or needing help picking a niche.

Thanks,
Grace

Hi, I came to Wealthy Affiliate through you. I have a question. I don't mean to break any rules, but I've been struggling for months to get a website up for my ghostwriting business. If I bought premium and had more than one site, could I use one for the affiliate platform and the other for whatever use I want? I won't be selling things on it. Just letting people know what kinds of writing and speaker coaching services I provide. Is that allowed? Sharon

Hi Sharon, you can actually do whatever you wish with your sites on here. Your membership includes hosting for your custom domains that you can buy here as well or somewhere else and host them here.

Those sites you create are yours, especially if you use your own domains. Hope this helps!

hello I'm doing ok hope your doing fine also. I've been working on the lessons today. actually I just finally got started today. went through the lessons 1-4 and made my first website, although there isn't anything on it. got to go through the video again to see what I missed to get content on it. Anyway I'll let you know how it goes, have a wonderful rest of the day.

Hi Mark,

That’s great you’ve started the lessons and built your first website!! Exciting stuff.

You will be building content soon enough and will continually do so as this will be what you’ll be doing for your online business.

Just keep following the lessons and you’ll learn how you’ll build your content and where to find products to promote. Remember to use the WA search bar as well before you ask your questions because you may find it quicker that way.

Anything else, ask away. :)

Thanks for your message!

Hi Grace glad to hear about you broke through the 4 digits money in your business I'm sure it is an exciting feeling of making money online. As you know and I explained early on that I only have few days a week to actually get online through with WiFi with my tablet, so I haven't been able to move along with creating website and a niche my lessons are way to small to read on my phone, and my phone is old, out of date, its terrible lol. Hopefully I can work on it tomorrow for couple hours. I haven't upgraded because money is tight for me at this time of year plus I'm from Alaska and I'm here in Idaho for the winter and won't be home for another month or so.but I'll do what I can with what I have. I'll miss out on the discount of $19.95 but hopefully I can get things rolling soon. Anyway that why it's taking me so long to move forward. Thanks for being there for me I really appreciate it very much. Mark Clemons

Hi Mark, Thanks for your kind words.

No problem at all with your situation, just do this in your own time and when it's the right time for you. There's no pressure as you will still get the $19 for your first month later on (my secret to you :) ), just keep your account login information so you can come back when you're ready.

I look forward to working with you in the near future. :)

Take care!

Hi Grace, I just went through the niche section of the training. I have a good idea for one. It involves a online painter who does lessons online and also sells her paintings. She doesn’t give herself much exposure,but I beleave has an amazing product. Can you give me any advice on how to make the first connections as well as give her an easy understandaying of affiliate marketing and how it can help her.
Reply
littlemama Premium
You need to keep going with the lessons and learn what affiliate marketing is. You can't just promote her and give her exposure, she doesn't have an affiliate program for you to sign up to and get commissions from probably unless you have a private deal with her.

You can do a niche about painters/paintings but unless you have affiliate programs to sign up to, then you're not going to make much money promoting it. Right now, I can think of you promoting art supplies or paint supplies from stores like Walmart, Target, but you may want to see if what other paint supplies stores will have affiliate programs for you to join so you can promote the right products for such a niche.

Hi Grace,
I have been trying to find the email about a SuperAffiliate Program by Kyle and can find nothing. Didn't we appear to get an invitation to join his Super Affiliate Program around Jan. 11, 2018.

I had already applied to be in one of the groups DaveSw started so I didn't apply. You were so excited and I was so hopeful you would get accepted, so I could follow your progress.

Here's hoping you get positive news.

Hello, you've been here just 17 days, you have much to do ahead of you. You are not doing anything wrong, Google doesn't even look at your site until it's 3 months old, just because it's indexed it doesn't mean it's ranked high enough for anyone to see your post. It takes time for Google to trust your site, it needs to know if you're still around producing quality content 3 to 6 months from now. So take this time to go through the training thoroughly and completely, applying everything you learn, in time you will see traffic, you will see results.

Here are success stories that you will keep you going in the meanwhile: Remember this is not a get rich quick thing, you're building a business and businesses take time to grow so think long term and know it will take you longer than you initially thought but you will get there if you continue your hard work and dedication.

Good luck to you,
Grace

Hola Grace. WOW, I just saw your new profile picture. This hairstyle makes you look some 20 years younger. I recognized your name before I saw your picture. I thought this must be your daughter. But, that smile is all you. Thank you for updating your profile picture.

This post may be of help to you. Best regards,

Hi! Littlemama,
No one in grace can reject upholding a celebration for you achieving the record high traffic in 13 months; I really do. Your success will be my model of studying how to succed in online marketing. In other note, I asked, "Please give me your websites now and then so I can look into what and how you have evolved and changed over time before and after joining WA. I love to know and learn because I can not fail. If failed, I will divorce my family.

Now, I am just barely one year old in WA, and I have learned quite a bit - up to 20% of Level 5, but still fuzzy in technical details while consolidated in the concept and feasibility of e-marketing as you have achieved.

I appreciate your generosity in sharing.

Warm regards,


James

I answered you on my post when you asked about my site, so go read my reply there.

But, really, you don't need to look at anyone's site because you just have to follow the training here and do what it tells you. At the core of the training, you just need to write: Hope this post will help you,
Grace

Hi Dennis, welcome to WA and glad you're here as a Premium member!

Thanks for reading some of my stuff and I wish you much success here as well.

The one advice I will give you is this: Don't deviate from the training, do the work, be consistent, and stay on course for the long term.

If you keep going, keep writing, keep persisting, you will find all the results you came here for.

Best to you,

Hey Grace,

Hope all is well with you and your family~ I love what you stated and had just started recently. I've got a 8 month old girl that needs my attention almost all the time so I am not sure how I am going to do this...I don't really want to get the premium because financially, I will not be able to do it so I am just wondering if that will affect my goals here...like will I still be able to build a website and have traffic there and also make some income being a standa d memeber?

Thank you for your insight in advance.

Hi Justine, nice to meet you and welcome to WA. Not having premium, you can still make money with your free site, but it will take so much longer because you won't really know how to write and use the techniques taught here. You will have your site, but unless you know how to use it, it'll be pretty much useless. As well, if you don't go Premium you won't get the support you'll need either.

I can understand financial strains, but if you just do the $19 for one month just to see what the lessons can do for you and all the resources available, you will understand why you would need premium.

Having a baby so young still will be hard to get time for your online business. I've finally gotten time back as my girls both go to grade school already so I dedicate all day and some time at night to my online business to make it work.

You can wait til your little gets a little more independent but if you can start your online business now, you can also build it slowly... and then work on it harder as you get more time back to yourself as your child grows.

Websites take time to grow anyway, but if you're too busy with your little one and pretty tired from lack of sleep, then it's hard to concentrate on something like this.

It's all about how badly you want it. :)

Here are some success stories you could read in the meantime and see what it takes to succeed: I wish you all the best whatever you decide! If you have anymore questions, please do not hesitate to ask. :)

Thanks for following me Littlemama! I appreciate you. You say in your profile that you have two online shops of handmade products.Are your online shops prosperous or just so-so? The reason I ask is that I crochet, and would love to build a website on just my crocheted items. I am not looking to make a fortune with it, just some extra cash here and there. What are your thoughts?
Reply
littlemama Premium
Hi John, thanks for connecting with me too. I've already closed one of them and trying to phase the other one out as soon as my blog starts making consistent money. With online shops, you are always promoting it, blogs on the other hand, the sales come to you. So you can build a crochet shop and have a blog on it for traffic, that's the only way to get around that. I just found it was too much work for little return but also, I've never been a sewer and the second shop I have to sew. I don't want to sew forever so I want to build an affiliate marketing business instead so I can earn passive income. Hope this helps. :)

Hey there Grace in Arizona, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

What handmade products are you doing. I love all things handmade and often do weekend courses in things like fused glass, felting, basket weaving and so on and so on!

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

It's been crazy, I had a 25 point jump! So what helps is greeting new members. On your profile page, after your description, there are New Members that show there, if you follow and give them a welcome message, that kind of activity helps a lot, plus being in Live Chat. Another one is creating content.

These are all things I did while you also added likes & comments to my content, so if you continue with my suggestions, you can easily pass your to Top 200. :)

In the meanwhile, I'll go through your blogs and do the same to you. :)

Hi Dana,

I've been actually thinking about this recently, allowing people to buy my patterns, that would be a great way to scale my business. I've tried scaling through other ways to get help to make the dolls but it's either a very large investment or it's way too expensive. Making digital products is the way to go!

Reply

Hi Jacob,

To enable Pages to allow comments - Pages All, press "quick edit" on the page you want comments on, then in the drop down menu to the right, you'll see a box labeled "Allow Comments" - check this box. If you've done that and you still don't see the comments box, then check all your theme settings.

As for your menu, first you add the Page you want to the menu, under Appearance > Menus. Then add the Post Category of the blog post you want under this page, but instead of putting the category just underneath that Page, you have to move it slightly to the right (see attached).
Reply

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.

Hi Kyle, Thanks for checking in. Trying to go through Certification first, or should I just finish Bootcamp first? Now I'm not sure... which route is faster to start making affiliate sales with WA? My site is about making money online so I talk about various topics around that but also refer people to WA at the end of my articles.
Reply
Kyle Premium
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 Grace!

It's just taking me a bit longer to write the content for those first 3 theme topics! lol I spent ALL DAY today just on the first topic, yikes! I hope the other two will be quicker! :)

Anyway, I love it here already so thank you and I certainly will ask for help when I need it!

To much success to you too!
Grace

Hi Grace, Welcome to the WA community. This is certainly the place to work your way up the ladder to eventually grow a passive income online. You have great goals that need commitment, determination and perseverance. By going premium, you will have complete access to all the available trainings and tutorials and also the rich community support behind. Most importantly, you can also PM our founders, Kyle and Carson for personal advice. I am sure you are aware that if you take up premium membership within 7 days of joining, you will get a huge discount of 59% and pays only US$19.00 for the first month. Take action before the offers expiry. [Kelsey]

Thank you Age for your kind and encouraging message! I'm glad you said my goals are realistic cuz sometimes I'm not sure and may be over my head with the goals. However, I'm really determined to reach them so I hope I will and inspire others to do so. How have your experience been here at WA? Have you two reached online success? Would love to hear about it!

To much success to you!

Hi Kyle,

I love it here at WA... You guys have built an amazing training program, I see so much I can do here and be supported all the way. I'm definitely upgrading probably tomorrow. I was trying to find success stories on here... and last night I found a very good one (DomW).. so I'm more sure about signing on as premium. :)

I had asked you about moving my sites to WA, but because the process sounds complicated and manual... is it fine to leave them where I have them and still be okay? I just don't have that one plug-in that comes with the sites here, Exclude Pages from Navigation, how can I get that installed on my sites? I looked it up in the plug-ins search and couldn't find it.

Maybe I'll move them over one day when I'm more confident about how to move them so I can kill that HostGator expense. It's just that I have two online shops on there and now this new blog for this project at WA, I feel it's too risky for me to move away from HostGator at this point.

I'll be sure to ask you for help whenever I need it... This one aspect that I can ask you for any help is very comforting and encouraging!

Thanks for the check up!

Yeah, most definitely. You can leave your website where they are at now and down the road if you want to take on a transfer you can do so then. We have a transfer platform that is going to be rolled out pretty soon as well at which point you will be able to quite easily move from HG to WA (and we offer a far superior hosting platform here).

Don't worry about Exclude pages either, you don't need that at the moment. You can find this within the Plugins tab and do a simple search for it if you want to install it on your existing wordpress sites. :)

Wonderful to have you here at WA Grace, you are going to love your journey ahead.

That's wonderful to know you're working on a more automated service to transfer sites!! I'm definitely will wait for that now, thanks for letting me know. :) And yes, I'm excited to see where WA will take me and can't wait to see when I'll start making money online! :)

Yeah, we most definitely are. It is very tough technology to make seamless and we want to do it right. With so many different hosts out there running different technology, different processes, etc, we have had to do lots of testing on this platform to get it right. Should be available in this fall!

Why was WA down today?? I was surprised a site as big as yours was down for more than an hour (I think). Does this happen often? What happened?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, it can happen. We have 100's of servers here and there can be technical glitches, facebook can go down for 15 minutes at a time, even Google has glitches. It can happen and it happens on occasion, but definitely is not a regular occurance.

Thanks!! Yes I enjoy the lessons too, very well planned out and easy to follow. Once I finish course 1, is there a course 2? And do I need premium for it?
Reply
almostthere7 Premium
Yes, that's correct. There is a course 2 and it does require a Premium membership.

littlemama Premium
Thanks! Just read the last lesson of course 1! Lol which explains it all.

Welcome to WA Grace. You are in the best community you could find for internet marketing.

If I could offer one suggestion, it is to follow the plan set forth with "get started here." Stick to it at all costs. I made the critical error of thinking I could skip around and pick and chose the courses, lessons and boot camp that I "thought" I needed to learn. That was a huge mistake and resulted in my deleting four websites and starting over from scratch. WA rankings are not why you are here; it is to develop a business which will change your life. Again, I base this suggestion on my (sad) attempt to short circuit the system designed by Kyle and Carson.

PS - One more thought. Try to avoid the very addicting temptation to view this site as an email exchange similar to Facebook. It will raise your rank (as you can see by my ranking) but it will NOT help you reach your goal of becoming a self-employed, do what you love, entrepreneur.

Sorry for the diatribe but I hope my mistakes might help you avoid the same.

I look forward to working with you in WA.

All the best, Steve

Thank you Steve for your lovely message and your tips. I wasn't trying to just get a high WA Ranking, I was just trying to follow people ranked high to learn from and looks like it worked since you gave me very good advice. :) I'm definitely not skipping any steps even though I already know some of the stuff taught in the Get Started Here. I'm at Course 1, Lesson 8... When I finish course 1, will there be course 2 or will I have to upgrade to premium membership to get it?

Thanks for connecting! Look forward to working with you and lots others on here!

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! :)
Reply
littlemama Premium
Sorry I missed this message about niches... I'm good and have at least a couple in mind to start with but I will start with one and build it to a point that it's generating money, then start a second one, and so forth. Thanks for your message!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is the best approach for sure. It only takes ONE niche to be very successful online! :)

Welcome Grace,

Anything is possible, all you need is the right mindset, the knowledge on how to do it, the energy to do it, and as the NIKE commercial says then, Just Do It!!! Good luck to you and I want to wish you the very best in all of your business endeavors here with Wealthy Affiliate.

Thanks Harold for your message! Very encouraging and I do have a JUST DO IT attitude as I've tried doing this before and didn't make much but I feel with the right teachers, I can move forward and really make money online.

Since you've been a member for almost a year, have you met your goals? May I ask how much you earn online nowadays?

Can't wait to learn lots!
Grace

Hey Grace,

Not a problem. Yes I've been a member nearly a year now, but like many I was pretty skeptical at first. You see, I signed up before doing any research and there was also some procrastination as well. My journey actually began when I became a Premium member only 11 days ago.... I've accomplished one goal so far. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but in theory, you can make lots of money if you apply the knowledge here properly.
Oh and continue to ask questions, it always helps to do so.

Best wishes from me to you,

Harold

Thanks for your honesty Harold, appreciate it. I could see why people procrastinate, I've done it myself... so you have to have that burning desire inside you to get anything done and be motivated. Nothing in the external can do that for you until you want it yourself on the inside. I'm hoping that's what I have now, and will make this online business work out once and for all!! :)

HaroldLngfrd Premium
Grace, I recommend writing down your goals (if you haven't done it already) in regards to what you would like to achieve here in Wealthy Affiliate. Then you can go back to see if you're still on track. Always move forward and write about your successes and failures and learn from them as you continue to accomplish your goals. But I think you got the right motivation, so go forward and conquer.... LOL!!!
