A new beginning

Last Update: April 03, 2019

Good morning everyone,

This is the first time I have written a blog on WA. I saw a post from Amy yesterday about feeling let down and not progressing as fast as we would like. It was an inspiration to me and a wake up call all at the same time.

On January 3,2019, I was terminated from the job I loved and had been doing for over 30 years. I could not believe it. The date on a battery box had not been changed in the proper amount of time. I am sure it was an excuse as it could have been handled differently. I sat on my couch for about a week just wondering what I did so bad. Really a date on a box? I went into a depression and tried to hide it from my family and friends. I was ashamed and humiliated about losing my job. I shut myself off from just about everyone and when I had to interact I put on a brave face.

I found WA while on my computer locked away in my office. It has been the one thing that has kept me sane these last few weeks. I have been working on the lessons and trying to put together my first website. I am still working on it and I will not give up. I forgot to say the company I worked for had their own computer system and I know that inside and out. I mean after 30 years I should. I have been struggling on some lessons because I only know the very basic computer skills. My grandchildren know more than me. I have to stop and look up the basic terminology to figure out what it is. Enough said about that.

I have been feeling depressed and was afraid to put myself out on the web. What if someone saw it? What if someone was talking about my websites? What if? What if?

I have been torn if I could build web sites and become an affiliate marketer. That is just what I want. I want everyone to read my blogs and websites. Ever since I read the post from Amy it has given me the confidence and courage to continue. I am sure I can do this and it may take me a little longer and I am sure I will be asking a lot of questions but I CAN go forward with WA and my life now.

I want to thank Amy and WA for everything. I will keep updating on the progress of my website, and continued success to everyone.

( This was the first time I put losing my job on paper or spoke of it. I was ashamed and I had my first and last cry.)

Hi Lonnie. Welcome to the WA family. Please don't be ashamed of losing your job, it seems like you dedicated probably most of your life to the place so there is certainly nothing you should be ashamed about. Unfortunately companies do that to the people that have been with them the longest. I am sure they used that one mistake as a reason to let you go. I would have to bet you did not make many mistakes as you were there so long. I have only been here for about 2 weeks but I have learned so much. Just take your time with the training, watch them over again if you need to and always ask questions. Everyone here is every supportive and helpful. You can always ask Caron & Kyle, they are here for you. Best of luck you to you.

Thank you. I am learning to ask for the help I need. Not easy sometimes, but it is how we make it now. Also the more I learn the faster I can pay it forward.
