About Madscientist
Joined May 2016
Hi. My name is Laura and I am following this program with my husband and three teenagers. I home school our children. As they are all teenagers now, my job is almost done. We are pursuing internet marketing as a means of income as part of our studies.

I enjoy being with my family, reading, learning new things, and being in nature - camping, fishing, hiking, biking, etc. I have a BS in Bio-chemistry from long ago. My interests have shifted some and I now follow naturopathic and homeopathic medicine.

We are looking forward to all that we will be learning here and getting to know everyone. I am excited to watch us all reach our dreams and to effect the world in all kinds of positive ways!

Thanks. I was also thinking about trying an essential oil website. I will have to take a look at yours - I will have to brush up on my French though as it has been a long time. :) Hope you have a great day too!

Hmmmmm mine is still just a baby website. It has a menu and a few posts but really I haven't worked on it in about a year lol. But do feel free to look at it. You can also ask in live chat if there are people working on essential oils website
All the best

How wonderful that you're studying internet marketing income generation as part your home schooling curriculum.

I also was formally trained in the sciences, before switching emphasis to design (and the rest is a long story). Your shift to naturopathic and homeopathic medicine from a bio-chemistry training isn't surprising. You're probably better able to understand the "why" and "how it works" side of the equation, because of your background studies and lab experience.

So nice to meet another "madscientist", Laura. I'm honored by the follow.

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


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Laura :)

madscientist Premium
Hi. Thanks for checking up on me. I did share my income goals and you commented on them already. :) Here they are again. Happy: $2000 a month; Ecstatic: $10,000 a month; Time: several hours a week with progress in 9 to 12 months. Thanks for the encouragement!

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! :)

Thanks! It is great to be here. My nieces definitely think I am a mad scientist - they always tell all their friends to ask what unusual ingredients I put in my desserts. They think it tastes good - at least until they know what healthy foods I have hidden inside. :) Wishing you success!!

Hello mad scientist Laura and thanks for the follow - I'm doing the same to you.

What a brilliant idea, make the kids independent before they know what is happening.

All the best

It is something that we are all excited to pursue. The kids are such an inspiration to me as they haven't yet been "taught" what is and isn't possible - to them everything is possible. It is a joy to be with so much enthusiasm. I think they teach me almost more than I teach them. Wishing you the best!

Hello Laura, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Don't let the overwhelm get you!! As long as you go through all the lessons one by one, step by step, and implement that training, you will definitely be fine.
Don't try to do too much at once, remember breaks are very important too!!
If you do find you are struggling, I know I often needed to go through a lesson again. But never struggle alone, don't be afraid to ask questions. There is never a stupid question if its something you need the answer to!!!
The best of luck
Chrissie :)
Reply
madscientist Premium
Thank you so much. Thanks for the reminder to take breaks too. I am a bit of an overachiever which adds a little pressure. I also feel that I am not where I want to be - that I am a little behind - adding more pressure. I will remember to take breaks. Thanks!

Hey Laura! 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!
