About LorieV
Joined August 2014
I live in the Rock n Roll capital Cleveland, Ohio. I am 57 years young. I was a legal secretary by trade and overtime became a full time caregiver to my mother, now deceased. Over the last 5 years my life turned upside down. I sustained a compound fracture to my right wrist, which is now re-constructed with plates & screws and a metal golf tee 'like' joint. Thereafter I overcame breast cancer. So all and all, I've had a lot of surgeries. My house foreclosed, my car died and I am currently on a non-service connected veterans pension disability. I am doing my best to change directions and venture out into the world of on-line entrepreneurs. I have struggled with fibromyalgia. For many, many years. Since I have already done so much research on products and protocols for FMS, I would like to learn how to build a website that showcases the wealth of information I have accumulated.

Wow! Your past five years are like my past two on crack! It sounds like you're still persevering and not letting it get you down though. Sometimes our trials make us stronger but hopefully things will get easier. I seem to meet more and more people with fibromyalgia. I think your site will be a great resource. Nice to meet you!

Oh thank you. If I could just get going on my website! I don't have a heck of a lot of structure in my day and it seems to be hard to stay motivated. It seems odd to be complacent on a disability - I don't want to give up! I have too much research and information I want to share. Working thru it! If you have any tips on how you are so productive, please let me know. Nice to meet you too!

hahaha, generally I sit on the couch in front of the tv, surf the net and something occurs to me so I start writing. Sometimes my posts go exactly where I thought they would, others turn out much differently. On Sunday I was so tired that I literally planned on writing "Here are some silly dog videos, enjoy!" and leaving it at that. But then... my brain kicked on and I added to it.

Think about the one most important thing you want to share, I would assume your About Me page... your background, why people should listen to you, why you are so passionate about this topic. I think that post will pour out of you and once you've got it where you want it, and you've posted, it will probably get easier. Getting started is the hardest part. Hit the hilights of your experiences and I'll be each of those little details will become a blog post for you.

Lorie, I understand about being overwhelmed with life and health issues. I'm diabetic and have degenerative discs in my back from OA, and fibromyalgia also. Fatigue is a major issue for me and I do not sleep well - you'll find me on here all hours of the night because my sleep is so messed up. I'll be interested in visiting your site when it is up. Keep on truckin, a little at a time will still work eventually. I do only surveys also but there's not much to be had out of that except a $10 Amazon card every now and then for me.

What's going on Lorie? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress through the training. Drop me a note (Reply) if you need a hand with anything. :)

Well, I did get kind of frustrated and stopped b/c I do struggle with my health. I did not think I would be able to do the website b/c I have so much information and research, it's overwhelming. After working on the niche lesson, I found some FMS products I can promote. Going to need to narrow down my focus on how I am going to go about doing this.
On another note, I strayed away wanting to make money right away. Then, after reading some blogs, I got back down to earth and slowed down to acceptance. I went back to your site and decided to try some surveys to help fund this process. I am considering the premium now!
p.s. I did find a product and signed up to be an affiliate!

Hey Lorie! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

Hey Steve! I have a question regarding, "How much do I realistically need for recurring monthly charges to get a website up and going?" If I am going to join WA, I want to look at all the expenses and go into this with a budget in mind. Also, unexpected expenses and other fees that I may not be aware of?
I have only gone thru course 1. Have a lot going on with my health, so this is going to be a slow process for me. But, I really do like the community here. It's about managing my time and having a daily routine that I am struggling with right now.

Really, you can get by with just the Premium membership at $47 per month ($29 per month if you pay for a year) and a domain name, those run about $8 per year. There are additional things you could buy (services outside of WA, common expenses for Internet Marketers) to expand your business, like a premium WordPress theme, Jaaxy for research, Aweber for newsletter service etc. but the membership and a domain are all you really need.

Hey Lorie and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and as a thank you I wanted to help guide you around the site a bit now that you're here!

But first, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

As a new member here, there are a few things you'll want to do. Most importantly, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

›› HOW TO KICK START YOUR INTERNET MARKETING BUSINESS ‹‹

You're here to build an Internet Marketing business and Wealthy Affiliate will help you achieve just that. To seriously get things moving into high-gear, I have a few bonuses I want to send your way.

✔ 1. You can get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19!)

✔ 2. With a Premium membership, you are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your business, I will be there every step of the way.

But most importantly...

✔ 3. I am going to be giving you my "2014 Roadmap to Success" with your Premium membership.

I wrote out the exact steps I take to start a new website from scratch. This includes how I pick a niche, come up with content for the site, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2008. I know first hand that they work. :)

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, I am here and I am available. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA, I know you are going to love it!

If there's anything I can do for you Lorie, just let me know!

Thanks Steve! I googled this ad on clickbank for scams, and I found you. I liked what you had to say. It put things in perspective and got me back into reality. So thank you for that! I am familiar with WA from years ago, but I guess I wasn't ready then. I am glad to see they are still going strong. You know, I have been looking all over online for a way to make a living and checking out internet marketing. It's just been so overwhelming. But starting out with your own website feels like the right way to start, more like its your own business, and you can settle down and just focus on that. So, I am glad I am here and looking forward to working with you.
p.s. Was my profile intro too much info? I think I need to change my login to my name.
