About Mary6006
Joined April 2017
Well I am 57 years old and I live in the Northern Territory, Australia. I have 2 girls, Sarah, is the one in the photo with me, she is 30yrs old and in her final months of Med School and graduates in December 2017, to become a Doctor. and my youngest daughter Christine is 18 yrs old. I am currently on a Disability Pension, and my daughter Christine is my carer, so its a little tough at the moment. There is something deep within me that I need to share. I come from an abusive background, and have had to endure many life changing experiences.

There is so much more because I am passionate about helping people, for example. Suicide amongst teens, PTSD within the police force, trauma from violence, and so the list goes on. I really don't know where to start, excep here. I have been told by my Doctor, Psychologist OPSM, staff, to go for it. My Psychologist, said when I right a book on everything I have been through and recovered from, she said that she would buy a copy.

I need a platform to get me started and I believe I found it. I am going to do everything in my power to make this work, not just for the business side of it, or the money I may earn, each one of those are the bonus.... because every one of us are individuals, and have a story to tell, each one of us have had our emotional roller coaster rides, some have risen to the challenge, some are trying to cope, and then there are the ones that gave up. because it got to hard....

Then there is the cycle of drug abusive and can't seem to find a way out. I am so passionate about people and the struggles that either help them stand up, or they fall down again. You see there is so much more to say and I have added a little bit about my two kids, and a little of there journey as well. I hope you enjoy this part


Yes I am very excited for my eldest daughter Sarah, and I can't wait to see her in December this year when she graduates. You see I left NZ because I could see that if I didn't change things now, ten years down the track I would be doing the same old, same old, thing. So I took the plunge and packed everything up and came to Australia with just suitcases and my daughter.

Sarah has had a very rough upbringing, where we ended up in a refuge, and because of that, when I tried to enrol her at PBC, they nearly turned her down. However I told that headmaster... you see that name Sarah Picard.... well her name is going to come across your desk many times... however not for the reasons you think. Well when I met him again, when she finished school. I went up to him, and said," do you remember me".... and he didn't, and then I said to him "do you remember Sarah Picard" and to that he said" Oh wow, yes I do, she is one of our top students." and went on a little more, when I said to him' "Well you nearly didn't let her in.... because of where we had come from" so never judge a book by its cover, until you have read the story"

He remembered alright. So yes she comes from a public school as I could never afford a private one. And when she talks with people, she has found out, that she is the only that came from a public school. So yes there is a story, within a story, here to say the least.

She is a miracle, as I was told that I could never have children. You see, she was my 6th pregnancy, and that year I had, one in January (lost it), one in July (ectopic), and one in November.... and against all the odds, I finally had my first child.... and my second one came along 12 years later, and she was my 18th pregnancy.... both of my children had to be strong, because of the life they were going to experience.... and now I had a Doctor in the house.... Yahooo.... So thank you so much for reading a little of the story that I will be writing about.

Kind regards

Mary6006

Hello Mary6006:

I apologize for taking so long in replying to your email! I have a new addition to the family - I have a great granddaughter and I am in Portland visiting her as I write.

She is beautiful she weighed 10lbs and 2ozs. can you believe that and my granddaughter said she didn't feel anything, it was a piece of cake! God is good!

She didn't have to even have a c-section.

I hope you have gotten started on your training - it is exciting, but, I am sure you will accomplish all of your goals.

Chat with you when I get back home!

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link.

Hi Boomer,

Thanks and sorry for not getting back. I have been a bit unwell so I have not been on as much as I would have like too. I am still trying to get my head around the first course, so I havent yet been able to visualize what everything looks like as I feel I am blind and cannot see what I need to do. Everything is explained really well, however I still can't figure out what to do. Its a little frustrating as I would love to get something started, so I know I am going in the right direction.

Hey thanks for the How to use the WA Keyword Tool". I will certainly watch it as soon as I can.

Just follow the step by step tasks in each lesson from Kyle. The training is really quite simple.

The only reason most people have problems understanding the whole process is because it is new to them and they do not realize that making money online in affiliate marketing is extremely easy.

Mary,

I've never thought of PTSD other than being military related. The police is a first for me.

Thank you for adding me to your network. I will add you to mine. Here's to your (and my) accomplishments at Wealthy Affiliate. Let us do this and make it work. The community, including me, is here to help you if you have any questions so do not hesitate to ask.

Wow, thank you for your help too. Many more people suffer from PSTD, than we realize . This is why there is a sharp rise in suiside, within the forces and as the pressure increases, you will see more and more being affected. This is why I am passionate about helping people.

You see I too suffer from it and have found a way to copy and the tools and skills that I learnt how to use , saved my life from the same fate. So thank you for your support and encouragement because it goes a long way.

Cheers Mary

Hello Mary6006's:

I welcome you to Wealthy Affiliates! You kind of sound like me; I am very passionate about alot of things that are going on in this crazy world we live in!

My granddaughter just gave birth yesterday to a 10lb. 2 ounce llittle baby; well I guess she is not that little! But, I am bittersweet about her being born - simply because this world has gotten so bad; it kind of scares me for the little one.

But, I have to learn to leave it in God's hands.

I am sure that you are going to exceed and accomplish all of your goals at WA. Look what such a good job, you have already done with your two daughters. That is quite impressive, going to be a "doctor!"

I would love to read your book also - when you finish it! I have alot of experiences that I could write several novels on, but, when I look back over some of my life; I can't hardly believe I went through all of that - and where I am now in life.

But, be encouraged - you will do very well! I feel that strongly by what I have just read about you.

Hope to chat with you soon!

Wow that was just so lovely, thank you . Its funny you know, I have to start again back to the dirst lesson because I realized so much went over my head. So its back to the drawing board O have to laugh at myself , because I was a little too eager and ran befor I could walk.

I now know that what I thought I knew, I didnt know anything.

Talk again soon

I know what you mean, I have had so many interruptions, that I feel like I am the only one who is still doing the training lessons.

I here in Portland now, until next Thursday; and I am trying to work on my lessons in short sessions. Hopefully, I can complete at least the 2nd level; where I have my webiste built.

We'll see - if you have any questions on the first lesson, I can help with that, I got a good understanding of that.

I guess it doesn't matter how fast we go - I think what matters is that we have a clear understanding and are able to retain what we have learned; so we can help others who become members of WA.

So, where are you now with your lessons?

Chat with you soon!

As for me being through a lot, therein lies a story and I have been told by my siblings I should write a book about our family and growing up the way we did.
You get stuck, you drop me a Private Message. Everything in those are Confidential so no 'Earwigging' lol.

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! :)

Ho Kyle

Thanks for getting back to me, I appreciate your time and effort to get me moving on the right direction.

I feel blind at the moment, because I cant see where i am going.

This is a sort of a layout as to where my thinking is going I am trying to narrow it down and be specific. So here goes...

Helping people over come there emotional truma that happens more iften than we think. For example. .. How many people know how to, understand what they feel. Furthermore these emotions are raw. These are just a minute fraction that breaks people


It goes somethung like this . Our emontional wellbeing is not being understood and so many people are falling thru the gaps and now we have a huge rise in Teen Suicide , like cyber bullying , cutting and feeling we are better off without them leading to taking there own lives..

Why has it got this bad, and what, can be done to help? How do.we reach them and will someone see them before its too late. Mental Health is a major issue here in the Northern Territory Australia and it has got so bad , that the elderly are not coping and they too are taking there lives too. So yes I belive, that there is something there.

You see Kyle its been one hard road to what ever I had to battle and emotinally it tooks its toll and some how some way I had to get back up and this has happened, so many times I lost count however as hard as it was and still is I use these emotions to get me back up. Retraining the brain and that is what I did, and still doing. Today. I went from Negative, to Positve , and that changed everythimg because in order to understand one , you need to experience the other . In order to find sucess you normally experience failure. And my motto is "Failure is the begging of Sucess. .

Cheers and thank you for taking your time to read this. I twicked it a bit

Sure. You could head in this direction. A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

Mary6006 Premium
Hi Kyle, Thanks for that feedback. I know its broad and i need to be more specific. I was on the live video link and only 20 min into it and it shut me out. I was watching off my phone and it didn't like it .

So I am hoping i can find out where I was up too because it was making sense , so I will have to work off my computer. I enjoy sitting outside with all the beautiful sounds around me. Its very relaxing.

Yeah, sounds like an internet connection issue which can happen on mobile. If you are on a good connection you will be able to watch the videos on mobile without issue.
