About LynneHuy
Joined June 2015
Hi Everyone :)

My name is Lynne. I'm 40 years old and I live in South Africa with my hubby and two small children (a 5 year old boy and a 7 year old girl).

I am an alcoholic and an addict, but I am 10 years in recovery so my life is very different now. I love helping other addicts to get clean and find a new way of life.

I am passionate about my kids, recovery from addiction and of course making money online. So I have a website for each of my passions. It is an amazing experience being able to work in all the niches I am passionate about.

I love writing and reading too, which makes this the ideal career choice for me.

I am now making a full time income online and loving the journey.

I love connecting and engaging with other lady bloggers - so feel free to connect with me on my lady bloggers community website. (Link in sidebar of my profile here)

Hi Lynne,
Firstly your blog led me to this program and I agree with you making money online is not easy work, but it is worth it. It is great to know that we still have honest people that are willing to empower others.

I have an online store that offers and affiliate program to individuals that are serious about making money or for those wanting to make extra money. We are not the biggest out there but we are growing and would also like to help others grow as a mutual benefit. The stores name is Technogadgets. co .za, can I send my affiliate link to you and other members is possible.

Hey Joel - you are so right about that - it does take work but it is very much possible to make an amazing income online with time and effort. Please note that this is a zero spam community - sharing your company name and sending links privately or publicly here will land you in hot water!

Hi Lynne, I appreciate your response. I do apologize for that. Looking forward to a prosperous future.

Hello Lynne, I am so sad that after adding this affiliate link follow your method, my Pinterest account was suspended forever, I don't know why and what happened? when I write and email for complain why it was suspended, but they offer me with reply saying that my account went against their community rule to send spam, all the post my from my website, but only add two pretty link with wealthy affiliate, and then it was suspended forever, are you make sure that the pretty link for wealthy affiliate is legitimate and is approved to send on Pinterest? I am so sad to lose my account and no longer to give it back forever can you help with me?

Hi Camille

I am so sorry to hear that your Pinterest account was suspended! I also had one of my accounts suspended and Pinterest is offering no explanation to me either.

I have since deleted that training video - which was advice that I was given by another member on how to add WA links to Pinterest.

Also note that there has been a massive amount of people that have had their Pinterest accounts over the last few weeks - I have seen complaints all over online and this is not just related to WA. I have a Facebook group for Pinterest and there has been loads of people with the same problem.

My advice is to keep on contacting them. For my account they wouldn't even give me a reason which is frustrating as can be. I have a number of accounts and I have used the Pretty Link for WA on a few but only one account was suspended so I really don't know if it is related or not.

Thanks for the reply, but I had created a second account since it was suspended, but the problem is that now I couldn't claim with my website any longer, for the website has been connected to the previous account which was already suspended, I don't know how to solve the problem. are there any ideas? thanks for the reply again.

Hi Camilleyang - I don't have an answer for that question since I have not created a new account for my website that was connected to my suspended account.

Hi Lynne
So nice to get to talk to another South African You always hear about all the success stories and the first thing you wonder about is will it work in S A
Can I ask you just one question and please be honest even if it's not what I want to hear.
My plan is to start a blog, use Pinterest to drive traffic and Affiliate Marketing to make money. Is it a viable business plan or just a pipe dream
If the above is possible do they train you step by step to do Affiliate marketing or must I get training elsewhere. I want to be very sure that I'll get everything here before taking the plunge. $49 might not be a lot of money for the Americans but with the current exchange rate it's not so cheap for us guys
Thanks for your time . Hope to hear from you soon

Hi Carina

Well I can't speak for anyone else... but I love making money online and I make a full time income from home through my online business. I honestly don't place a lot of my effort into affiliate marketing though, I do more influencer marketing.

And Pinterest is fantastic for traffic! I get around 400 - 600 visitors a day to main business website from Pinterest.

I totally agree with you that $49 for us is no small expense, especially when you are not sure if this will work!

I've been here since 2015 and I won't be leaving. Just the keyword tool and the free hosting and tech support is enough to validate my expense of WA without even taking into consideration the best part of WA which is the top notch training.

The focus here is on affiliate marketing but there are lots of other things taught here too.

The main thing that you need to know is that if you want to make money online you need to know how to work your website and get traffic to it. Once you have traffic on your website you can make from it any way you want. You will learn how to do that here.

I believe that this is the best community to be to make money online.

Hi Lynne

I really enjoy your training and your rational and ordered mind. Please tell me about Google Search Console and whether they have retained that facility that Google Webmaster tools had to focus on a specific country. I too wish to focus on the US. You have a training on it. I have my site on Search Console but I confess I am still somewhat bewildered by the length and breadth of the information it produces.
Yours aye

Hello there Lynne,

As part of my decision making on WA I came across your video explaining how WA "wrecked your online business" and this was a big contributing factor as I am also from South Africa and to see the honesty you had in that video helped motivate me and basically cemented my decision therefore THANK YOU!!!!

looking forward to having you part of my network.

Dit was wonderlik om iemand uit die ou land to kry om hierdie uistekende advies to gee.

As an old fellow shrouded in the dust of antiquity I can tell you how happy I was to find your training - I had been struggling how to verify my property for Google Search Console and in the end after a day of wasted interaction with our Help Centre, they actually advised me to follow one of your videos.

I still have more to do but knowing how to operate the plugin has removed a big obstacle. Thanks very much.
Yours aye.

Hey Lynne, just read your bio . sorry to hear that you are an alcoholic. I am a distiller ( so I make it ) I actually have writing my first post on if alcohol is good or bad . It is very basic and I am not going into detail. What I want to say is, great to know that you actually could leave the alcohol away. very big achievement.

Hi Lynne

It's a wet Easter Sunday in Pmb and I have just had a look at your blog on email management. It was just what I have been thinking about because I need to add an email address to my Privacy Policy. Watching your video made me feel proud - a veritable tour de force!

Incidentally, I believed that I should know what 'kaboutjie' meant and considering our historical links with New Zealand, you may find this amusing. I keyed 'kaboutjie' into Google translate and nothing came up so I tried 'kabou' and Google replied 'translate from Maori?'

Best wishes for the future.

Hey Michael :)

Kaboutjie is in fact a nonsense word so no you won't find a translation for it. I came up with it because my husband is Afrikaans and he used to call our baby Stoute Kabouter or Kaboutertjie.

Stout being naughty in Afrikaans and Kabouter can mean anything from a Leprechaun (Dutch) to a Dwarf, Pixie or Elf.

So I took the word Kabouterjie and changed it to a nonsense word - Kaboutjie and made that my business name.

Wow Happy Belated Birthday Lynne. I have just recently started learning how to use social media for marketing and chose Twitter to start with. I thought maybe I would write a training about Twitter while I created my account, etc. I did a search and found Twitter loaded down and most of it from you. I think maybe I need to study what you have to say. You have created some awesome content. I've got a lot to learn.

Hi, Lynne, it is nice to meet you and also Happy Birthday too. I just wanted to drop by and say Hi and let you know that I am willing to help you out as much as I can.

I haven't been here that long only a year and I am still learning different things and sometimes it is overwhelming but I am still here plugging away hoping and praying that I will make a difference too,

My goal I haven't met yet and that is to make a full-time income online but I am steady working it though. If you get a chance maybe you can check out my site and give me some pointer if you don't mind.

I am in the middle of correcting some mistakes that I have made. And working on some new ideas and articles too. I just wanted to thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Lynne, I have to say that I am really impressed with what you've been able to achieve online also your story is truly inspiring. I happened to be lurking on the live chat and saw where you said you've published over 1600 articles! As a newbie and a person that doesn't exactly have huge passion for writing, that number just seams soooo unreachable. Are there any special techniques that you use before you post new article?

Hi Kevin

LOL I have some tricks up my sleeves :) Firstly I don't write them all! I make use of content writers and I also publish guest posts so don't get too impressed.. its not all me! Yes I push the publish button with every one but I don't write them all :)

And regarding any special techniques - I followed the training here and I learned and I practiced. The trick is to keep learning and applying all the time. Everything you need is right here at WA!

I overcame addiction cold turkey ( as we say in the USA ) many years ago, Lynne. It can be done if you have the will power and resolve to be free of both ( if that is one's problem ).

You would be amazed at how much alcohol I consumed on a weekly basis. Congratulations on your ongoing recovery.

I'd like to ask you a quick question since I know you're a pro when it comes to Pinterest.

Basically, I'd like to open a second Pinterest account but also have the boards/followers from the first account to be shown on the second one. I'm pretty sure you mentioned it in your training videos but now I can't find this info :(

Thank you!!

Online business. I've often felt a disconnection with technology (even though I'm 28 years old),

I went to read the above post, Lynne. I kind of expected to be at least one year to start to see something. Let's just say 5 years to full time, I'd still say way better than still working at my current job in the next 5 years. When WA becomes full time by then, it would be nice to be anywhere in the world and still get paid full pay.

I set my mind to focus only on what I'm going to learn in WA, not the money for at least a couple of years. The good thing is once I have acquired the knowledge, they're going to stay with me forever

Then you will do great. So many people put their focus on making money. I always say forget about the money, focus on learning and on helping others. The money will fall into place when you do that!

The time to do this (WA) is when you still have a stable income in order to not cram for the money. Frustration is at its peak when money is in the way. You're right, $ is inevitable anyway when the focus is in the right place.

Hi lynne how im at the last 2 days of my trail.

And i am almost done with lesson 1 and need to go to premuim.

I am considering it. But am scared it might not work. It is a quite a bit of money. But if it is worth it its worthit.

Do you think is should go for it or not?
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Hi Llewelyn - yes it is a lot of money, especially for us in SA with the exchange rate! However this is an investment into your future and yes it will work if you follow all the training step by step. There are so many amazing things you can do online and while many programs make lots of promises of riches and success, WA really delivers.

You will need to put the work in and it won't happen overnight so you can expect to be paying for a while with no visible return, but I promise you that WA delivers and you can succeed.

So yes I do recommend that you go to Premium, it is something I am more than happy to pay personally.

And I am here to help you any time and answer your questions!

But if you are not ready yet also remember that there is no pressure to upgrade, you can stay a starter member for as long as you like until you are ready and comfortable with upgrading.

Yes you won't have access to the community soon, or the next training levels but you are not kicked out and you don't have to upgrade yet. Make sure that this is what you want for yourself right now :)

Hi Lynn I have a pretty general question to ask you, due to your expertise and wonderful practical tutorials.

My question is regarding canva:

Is it possible to separate each image box and add affiliate links to each?

Also how do I add a Html embed code to the 3 sided brochure?
Would I need to download and edit or is it possible within canva?
I understand the html code is only paste-able in the TXT editor side and not otherwise.
So im wondering how to embed a html in canva too?

I have only ever added links to pdf's that I create in Canva but I have not done anything more than that. I wouldn't know how to embed html code using Canva or anything else.

Lynne, perhaps you can assist me. I am confused about having links in my blog posts. I keep reading that you need to have content and gain authority on your site and that Amazon doesn't like you having links in your content and then I see and hear from Affiliates who do that all the time.

I do reviews on Christian books and movies etc. I am including an image of the book with a link behind it or a text link and that is about it. I have created a 'Shop' with info about my recommended books or movies with affiliate links there,

If you could take a look at my site and give me your thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.

The main thing I am confused about is as I said above...having links in the blogs or not? I want to gain high ranking so I don't want google to blow me off...

Also duplicate content...I don't understand that Site Content tool says my blogs on book reviews have duplicate content but the book I blogged about yesterday is mentioned no where else on my site. I quote the author in several places in the blog with quotation marks. Thoughts?

Sorry for so many questions but you seem like a good person to ask. If you don't have the time I understand.

I appreciate your posts and your efforts here on WA. If others wish to help I am including community help request.

See my profile for my site.

Hi Taresa

Links can be so confusing for lots of people when they start blogging. Yes of course you can add links to your content and also affiliate links.

The trick is not to overdo it especially when you first start blogging. Adding a huge amount of outgoing links, and a huge amount of affiliate links when you first start out is not going to be appreciated by Google.

That doesn't mean that you can't add links to your content. Start off with a few links and go easy on adding affiliate links in the beginning and as your website traffic starts increasing and as Google starts to trust you more you can add more links.

The other thing to look at is that you want a nice ratio of incoming links (as in links from other websites to your website) as you have going out.

If you have 5000 outgoing links and you only have 10 incoming links this is not good.

As you build out your website and become an authority in your niche more and more people will naturally start linking to your website and then you can being linking out more.

I have quite a well established website that Google likes so I add quite a lot of affiliate links to my posts. But I still do not add affiliate links to every post I write.

I hope that makes sense to you and that I didn't confuse you even more.

Taresa Premium
Thank you. Yes it is confusing. I have only put one or two links in a post so far. I use a products page for links to the products and refer to the products page in most posts... striving to get there...

Hey there Lynne,

Thanks for your honesty and sharing your story. I love how you've incorporated your passions to create online success.

Family is top priority for me as well. Our 2 daughters are a little older now, but your Kaboutjie website would've been a great resource to us in the early days, as it is now for both expectant and new mothers.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the WA community.

Have a truly Fantastical Day!

Hello Lynne. I hope you don't mind me sending you a PM but I know that you are the Pinterest guru and I have a simple question. How do I pin the Pinterest icon to my website? I was on someone else's blog and when I scrolled the Pinterest pin followed me the whole time. I want something like that so it is easy for my content to be shared to Pinterest.

Hi Shwana

You need to add a social sharing plugin for people to easily share your content. I don't know which plugin has the Pinterest button that follows you though! You will have to research that and find out. I use Social Media Feather on two of my websites and its quite nice :) On another of my websites the theme comes with social features.

Hi Lynne, I didn't want to PM you (for spammy reasons :). I have two questions on Pinterest if you don't mind. :)

I've been invited by a few people to pin on their group boards, I've accepted, but now I can't find those boards.

Where do I look for those boards and how do I pin to them?

Thank you

Hi Nick

You should be able to find those boards on your profile along with your boards? When you pin something you will get a list of boards coming up - they should be in that list? Otherwise you have been removed from those boards.

Hi Lynne, love your bio. It inspired me to tell you a little further about my background that may be of interest to you. I have three daughters...all very different that are in the same age range as yourself. One of my daughters struggled with alcoholism after she got out of the Air Force. She is now recovering from breast cancer. It has been a wake up call for her and is in recovery and fighting this through. She is very creative and into writing, acting and making crafts.

My mother was a recovering alcoholic and changed her life to the point she was the founder of a center called Mariposa for women struggling with alcoholism about 4o years ago. Since then, the center branched off into providing other family services. It is now called Mariposa Women and Family Center. http://mariposacenter.org located in California. My mother's vision has helped thousands of people and families through the years. It was an honor to be one of the speakers at her memorial service in 2010 after I returned from Iraq that the center held for her. I listen to the testimonies of those lives that were helped from the support counseling of the center,

I am so happy I have found this opportunity with WA. I hope to build something out of it to help free me with some of creative endeavors I would like to accomplish.

Best of success as you continue your journey in life with your family.

Wow Judson, your mom sounds like she was a remarkable woman. I am so glad to hear that your daughter is sober, and I am so sorry to hear about her breast cancer. It is hard dealing with medical things sober, I have not had to deal with anything even close to severe as breast cancer but I was in hospital earlier this year for an ectopic pregnancy and it was incredibly hard to cope, both physically and emotionally.

Thanks for connecting, it is lovely to meet you.

Hi Lynne,

I was reading your bio with great interest as we have two things in common:

1 - I lived in South Africa, farming in the Free State, for several years.

2 - I am also an alcoholic, been dry since August 2009, apart from a small relapse a few years later, which convinced me that alcohol is definitely the last thing I want to go back to.

I found that the hardest thing to do for someone who wants to quit drinking is to admit that he/she is an alcoholic. I cured my habit by attending several AA meetings (in Bloemfontein in fact). This was my hardest first step to recovery, I registered many times and never went to the meetings, till that very evening of August 2009, when I told myself that enough was enough, there is nothing to be ashamed of to be an alcoholic, it is a sickness like any other, and there is a cure for it. If I had to miss that very meeting, again, I would be dead long before now, considering the amount of alcohol I was consuming daily. I was permanently drunk, day and night.

I hope my message here will help others, and I must congratulate you Lynne for having taken the first step and for having the courage to quit. Not easy!

My apologies for using your space for such a long comment.

Best wishes from the south of France!

Hey John :)

Thanks for the comment on my website and for connecting here too! It is always nice to connect with fellow recovering alcoholics and addicts. We have a kinship that is hard to explain to people that are "normal" :)

So your clean date is August 2009? Mine is August 2008 :) I can't believe that it will be 10 years this year!

I hope you are enjoying France :) I went there once in 1996 but I don't remember much since I was blotto most of the time!

Farming in the Free State is not exactly safe anymore, so I am sure it was great when you were here but chances are things have changed a lot since then!
Reply
YourBizTips Premium
Thanks for your response Lynne. That's right, it is not safe anymore to be farming in South Africa, We left because we were fed up going to funerals of neighbours and friends who were murdered for no reason.

I hope that you are safe where you are and we sincerely hope that some day everything will come right again as we have so many friends there. Such a beautiful country!

Take care.

What are your weather conditions in South Africa today? We just narrowly missed a winter storm here, but still got a fair bit of snow, and still coming down. I see my two horses from my office window, and they are feeling a bit spunky. They love this mild snow, close to zero temps. Roads are closed this morning because we got freezing rain last night and then the snow. It was weird, we had thunder, lightening and snow coming down!

We live literally on the beach, I open our back door and in a few meters we are walking on beach sand... and it was 30 deg celcius today so a nice warm day! Perfect beach weather...

But winter will be here soon, summer is basically over and March is the beginning of Autumn.

I've never even been in snow before. I so want to do that still. Its on my bucket list. Hubby and I are planning a trip in winter to an area a few hours away that gets snow sometimes in winter, we want to build snowmen with our kids.

Good morning Lynne, I just noticed the subject of muffins came up in live chat. I have a tip for you...Lynne, I tried my favorite pancake recipe yesterday, by baking them in muffin pans instead. Turned out great! Pancakes in muffin shape, store in fridge and just gently warm them up when you want to eat them. I make gluten free muffins but they are more Paleo than anything, high in protein. We had some for breakfast this morning with a little maple syrup drizzled on top.

Hey Steven :)

Thanks!

My best suggestion would be for you to check out the top ranking gigs for the type of services you want to offer and see how they have set out their gigs and pricing.

That will give you an idea of what works well - so you can use that as a base for setting up your gigs - as inspiration but don't copy their gigs exactly of course. Try and add something unique to what you offer so you stand out.

Then also check out their forums and the Fiverr academy - that is what I did :)

BTW the decaff coffee thing was probably due to the chemicals they use to create normal decaf coffee. you have to look for Swiss water method decaf?? I don't drink coffee or tea.

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! I’m actually speechless which is a rare thing for me. I can’t say anymore at this time. I can’t see the screen for the tears. Yes, Men do cry and I’m not ashamed. It’s a way to wash away the sorrow I have for you.You are so,F**kING, brave. I’m so proud of you as my new, best, friend.

Later, LMW

P.S. Had to clean it up. I was rejected earlier.

Luther thank you... yeah WA doesn't like the F-bomb at all, me with my potty mouth figured that out a long time ago. I have to keep my language clean here. No F-bombs allowed.

I'm glad you enjoyed the ebook!

I don't use the F-bomb very often but after reading your book, I wanted to feel closer and accepted. Also, in view of the scenes I had been walking through, with you, I thought it was appropriate to express what I felt about you.

Not sure what I'm feeling, reading this, Maybe despair and sorrow for you at the time that was happening. Now, I feel joy and hope flooding you life. You have come a long way and I couldn't be happier.... Roll on!

That's exactly it Luther, there are times that an F-bomb is actually most appropriate - my addiction website is one of the places where F-bombs are totally accepted :)

It's not like addicts and dealers sitting in crack houses mind their P's and Q's haha.

I'm getting pretty put-out with trying to upgrade my site. I need some help with the home-page with pick, etc.

I changed themes also. I want to replace the pic that came with it.

How simple is it to change. and (I have my menu like I want it but,)
the content is not arranged with the menu. ??

First I would like to applaud you on your 8 years of recovery. I work in the mental health field with veterans and I see addiction on a daily basis.

This is my first go around with WA and I am also trying to make this my full time job, so I cam stay home with my 17 month old little boy.

I am just weary on how the making money part works. Can you give me some insight on this part? Please and thank you.

LynneHuy Premium
Thanks Jacklyn :)

Well the amazing thing is that my addiction blog is earning an income and I barely even have time to post on it since I am so busy with my mommy blog. It is not a huge income but I can only imagine that if I had to spend a good amount of time on that website I can easily turn that into a full time income too.

I wrote a post here recently about how I make money from my blogs because I get asked that question a lot!

Hi, Lynne. I just watched your training video on add images in WP and heard from your accent that u are from South Africa and see it is confirmed when I read your bio. It is fantastic that u have been in recovery for so long. I am from Port Elizabeth but am living in the USA for now. All my family is still in South Africa. Anyway just wanted to say thank you and if u don't mind I would like to follow u, being a fellow South African.
I wish u great success in all that u do and good luck. :)

Oh wow what a big question :)

Well if you are a newbie I would advise to follow all of Kyle's training first. It is set out beautifully step by step and by the time you have finished all the training available in both courses (yes I suggest you do Bootcamp afterwards even if you are not promoting WA) then start on Jay's training, he does all the Live Friday webinars - username Magistudios... and when you have gone through all of that you will know more than me *wink*

Hi Maurice

Congrats on starting your website that it awesome!

I have added content as I have learned new things or found scams online that I want to review. Adding content that applies to where you are in life makes everything so much easier and it keeps it all very real. Well that has worked for me. If you write from the heart it will rank better and it will be read more :)

As you learn about online marketing share what you have learned :)

If you go Premium you will be guided through exactly how to find content ideas and taught how to write reviews and so much more. I always recommend Premium :)

Hi LynneHuy you may the person I want to ask a question about posting.Here in WA my feeling is that the suggestion is to post as often as you can. Number one is posting writing an article about your niche as often as possible and integrating it your site at a certain length? How do you add it your site?(hopefully this is not a dumb question. My reason for asking you is that you post alot and I need some direction, I have not written a thing since I put up my site.which has been a month.The reason being is that my site deals with foot problems and I started by writing about gout and I do not know if I should just write about that which the idea is to get them to purchase a cure for gout. I can go to other foot problems but that means I would have to suggest a different product for them to buy.The other thing is how many articles could I write about gout and people would find interesting. I thought once one set up their site that was it apparently not.Hopefully I have not taken alot of your time and understand what I am asking. Thank you very much

Hi Jesus

Well that is more than one question, so let me deal with each part separately.

How often should you post?
The thing here is to be consistent with posting new content. Yes as often as possible is great but make sure you can keep up that routine. The best is to publish 2-3 posts per week.

How long should posts be?
Aim for 1000+ words per post. You might not be able to manage such long posts in the beginning and that is just fine, try your best and you will writing becomes easier and easier as you go.
Plus remember you can always update old content :)

What about quality?
This is really important. Maybe you can write 1000 word posts and maybe you can write 2-3 times a week... but what quality are these posts?
Quality is really important for a lot of reasons. Your readers won't stay long on your website if your posts are not quality. Google won't rank your content well if your content is not quality.
So if you can write a QUALITY 500 word post once a week that is better than writing 3 non-quality posts in a week.

Yes yes yes
To writing about different foot problems and offering different products! This is exactly what you want to do. The more products you review and recommend the more chance you have of making sales.

Follow the training, it is set up beautifully step by step with tasks at the end of each lesson. If you do this you will learn everything you need to know about working online.

I hope I have answered all your questions for you. Let me know if anything is unclear :)

That was funny as to your response because I had to go back and see how I had posed the question and you are right I did say one question. Anyway I do want to thank you for your quick response and for answering all my questions. I now know that there is alot of work to do and big challange for me because writing takes me a long time to write and be creative. I am aware that for most of us this is not easy and thank you again and continued success.

Hi Lynne....
WOW do we have things in common. I started taking drugs when I was 11 and finally quiet when I was 29 which was surprisingly easy. Alcohol was always in the picture, my father gave me my first drink when I was 5 and has been my friend up to about 6 months ago when my body started to break down. Now I can actually see the lite at the end of the tunnel but know that I have to watch myself every second of the day!
I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Stephan and I’ve been involved in Real Estate Investing the last 9 years and just want a change. Tired of Tenants’, Toilets and Real Estate programs that just nickel and dime you to death : 0(
I was checking out another Internet Marketing Program on line that promised you the world in 3 months so I googled it & found out it was a SCAM but in return the guy that wrote the scam article redirected me to WA and I’m so glad he did. I REALLY LIKE WHAT I SEE!!!!
I’m looking forward to working with WA & the Community to make WA my full time job. Saying that I have no previous IM experience, I’m very excited to see where this JOURNEY will take me!!!!
Happy Mothers Day Lynne!!!
Hope to see you around,
Stephan

Lovely to meet you Stephan! I have been with WA for nearly a year and I've been working online for 4 years. WA is the place to be for sure.

Welcome and I look forward to watching your progress here.

Lynne, it is so refreshing of you to "bare your sole" on your site. My husband is also an alcoholic, with many years sober. He, like you, talks about it freely and welcomes questions.

Great Reading about your explanation about Autoresponders.
I just wanted to know when you send Newsletters to your Subscribers What mail Id will appear when your subscribers get mails from you..
eg If your mail Id is lynne@gmail.com will subscribers see like this.
Should mail ids look professional? What do you recommend?
& How to have a professional mail Id.?
I am asking this because I am thinking of starting Email marketing.Since you have recommended that it should be done.
& also your advice will be helpful to the entire WA community who do not know much about Autoresponders..

Hi Lynne,
I noticed that you left a list of signature urls and links at the end of your post. Last month I had my write access revoked 2x and still don't know exactly why but I was told it was for self promotion and all I did was leave a link to my inspirational video site, thinking everyone would get blessed by going there.
Did you ever get called on this?
Let me tell you revoked, sucks and I am still "blog shy" about it. Incidentally, would you mind giving me you critique of my leanrhowtomakemoneyonline.net site. I am about 90% finished with it (I think)
