About Mary5600
Joined July 2013
I'm Mary, updated September 2016

I have been at the online experience for about 4 years. I feel like I have been completing a PHD while creating my own curriculum.

The curriculum is Google, time, finding the right questions, and grueling effort.

The practical part, is action, clueless or not. Making every mistake in the book, AND, creating a brand new book of mistakes!

I have been scammed and ripped off, surprised every time. Through it all, I come upon some great people and great training. An amazing ride!

4 years seems like a long time, but I wouldn't give it up. I had to become emotionally ready. To be visible. That I am “me”, writing to a community about what they find important.

This is not just a journey to become free financially (although it is a profound motivating factor for me), it is about finding myself outside of the “worker bee” mentality.

.So where am I right now?

I have one blog up, and would like to learn a system to bring it to the right audience and make money.

I have STARTED a freebie. I have STARTED a paid e-book and challenge and STARTED writing emails. They are still safely on my personal computer.

I still have a lot to learn. such as, video, screen capture, audio to name a few.
Fear has really held me back. I see that now.

I am happy to be here. I hope to help others when I succeed.

Much love and success to all of us!

Hello Mary,♫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 list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). 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 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Sarah, Thank you so much. That is encouraging.

I admit, I have tried other memberships that I am still a part of, (lifetime). They are great people and great training, but I was lost.

I hope you are doing well.

Thank you Armand. I appreciate the kind note.
I am a little scared.
I have been at this for 4 years, but get lax. I don't know if I believe I can succeed yet.
I have to prove to myself that I will overcome every hurdle I come up against. The thing is, it is actually fun. A lot of work, but very fulfilling. Be well!

I was kinda in the same boat. I started out almost out over 5 years ago, but I quit because I was being lax too. I am back, and I know I have a lot to learn. I know if I can just keep working at it, I'll be a successful internet marketer. Just don't give up. Best of luck!
Reply
mary5600 Premium
WOW!
OK, that is amazing that you have been doing this for 5 years. I am close to that.

SO we are in the same boat.

The nice thing, is that it really isn't a newbie status. For as much as there is still to learn, we know alot.

The fact that we are still around after so long though, shows drive and tenacity!

I wish you the best. And I wish us both success!

I'm sorry, that was a typo, and I goofed. I meant I've been at this for almost 2 years since October 2014.. I was probably tired when I sent you that post. So, not necessarily the same boat, but I do know what you mean. Yes, I feel the same way. Let us both be successful at our online business ventures.

Thank you for the welcome. Tat was so nice. I have been around for 4 years but haven't made any money. I am hoping that WA would be THE guide. I am a member of two other membership sites. Goop people, good training, but no business.

How are you doing with your business? May I ask how WA has helped? Thanks again, Mary

Thank you for the welcome. It is big decision for me. I have been in membership sites and am still in them. This does feel very different. Kyle and Carson seem dedicated. They really seem to have an unique site here. I am going to dive in right now. How are you doing on your business? Thanks again.

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! :)

Hi Kyle, This message came in before I actually went premium today. So you probably didn't get my message. Thank you for checking in.

I do have a question about my niche. I have a site up. I had plans for it, but hit the wall about a year ago.

Can I ask you here, or should I write to you email? I will give it a shot here (my first day in the neighborhood)!

The site that is up, is on super nutrition. A passion for sure. I am not sure of my direction with it t the moment accept writing an ebook.

The other one that I had up was on stress management. Another passion.

BUT, didn't want a desperate audience that actually needs counseling. They group usually need professional help that I cant provide.
I do want an audience that want to take charge of their life and be guided into the next steps. How does one get the right audience?

Thanks for any input you can give. . I am pretty excited to be here. It took 3 years! Mary

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hey, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion.

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Hi Carson,
you and Kyle are really blowing me away! I have heard from both of you and several members already.And I am not at premium level.
I am really looking forward to this.
In fact,this evening, i am going to delete several lists that I am on that tend to distract me.
There are some great people out there and I will miss them, but it is time time to see if I can do this. For the first time, I feel like I really do have help.
Thanks!!! Mary
