About MaryFRM
Joined May 2018
Hi, I’m Mary. I was born in Russia but currently, live in the US.

At the age of 15, I left my mother's house and moved to another country with $20 in my pocket. It was not really a choice, as she was sick and I had to survive alone, which was too bad in Russia in the mid 90's. My mom passed away two months after I left.

I spent about 20 years in Israel, starting from a public boarding school and moving on to the college and graduate school. Luckily, I found an adoptive mother who became my family and my soul support during these years.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and management, MBA in Finance with Magna Cum Laude and Financial Risk Manager (FRM) certification. You can count on my financial and risk judgment.

I moved to the US with my family in 2013, seeking better education for my kids and better career opportunities for me and my husband.
English is my third language.

My resume lists more than 15 years of experience in consulting and FX trading and hedging. Several years ago I transitioned to Risk IT Business Analysis domain. This is what I do as my full-time job.

Before I had kids, my hobbies were mountain biking, tennis, gym, theater, and books. Now I have 3 active munchkins, 4, 6.5 and 8y old, so my hands are full 24-7. But I still manage to go to the gym 3 times a week (it's a commitment to my physical health) and read some books during my lunch break (for my mental health).

I dare to say I know how to manage time, budget and priorities, making some time for my own development and learning new skills. This is why I’m here at WA. If it will bring me some more money for another vacation with my family – perfect!

My niche is about personal finances. It includes ways to create an online business, work from home, make some extra money without too much effort, save on purchases and get more from what you already have.

I launched my website "MoCashForYou" in July 2018. You are welcome to visit. The link is in the right bottom corner of the profile, as we are not supposed to put it in our posts here to avoid any spamming.

In many cases what's good for our wallet is also good for our health and our planet. No smoking, no disposal products, just to mention a few.
I hope that my blog will help people to understand this idea.

Update (Feb 2019):
My progress so far is slow (at least that's my perfectionist-self thinks about it). The blog has 26 posts, my Pinterest profile has about 125 followers, Facebook page - 50. Income is very low, as I don't focus enough on promoting affiliate product with reviews. However, I did get commissions from a bunch of products already, so the proof of concept is in place.

Let’s enjoy our time and company!

Great goals Maria,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hi, Mary-
Your resume is impressive. Going from Russia to Israel to the US tells me that you are a determined person.
Thanks for following me. I am also going to track you. With four kids and a job I'm surprised that you have any time for WA. You will do very well with WA. There's no doubt about that.
All the best.

Hi Mary,

It was interesting to read your profile.

After only a few days of being with WA, one thing which stands out the most is the emphasis WA as a whole, places on the people who are its members. I like that very much. So often these platform type of organisations are very impersonal and cold.

I have lost count of the number of people who have sent me messages and wished me well on joining and it is a secure feeling at the start of anything new, which I welcome. I wish you every success.

I have recently started looking at option trading and how it works. The most difficult part seems to be filtering the scams from the genuine products and services. Some even go to the trouble of setting up their own "independent " reviews on themselves to try and convince people to invest in them. Since joining WA option trading has taken a back seat for a while but I am still interested in exploring the possibilities of being an affiliate for some or one of the genuine advisors and brokers there are.

I shall make a point of looking at your website and look forward to it. Once again, I wish you every success and thanks for your link.

Hi Maria,
I noticed that you’re following me. Thanks so much for that. I hope and pray for your success here at WA. I’m wondering if we could do each other a favor? Could we possibly exchange a comment on a recent post, on each other’s website? I know time is precious, so I certainly understand if the timing is not the best for you. Anyway, if you’re able, here’s the post I need a comment on: https://howtoloveelementary.com/why-do-i-feel-like-a-child/

$100 a month is $1200 per year and within the next few months you could double that or more. A raise comes along every few years.
This will just keep coming in more and more every month. it will always be so much better than a raise.

Great job on the nice income, too.

I just read your bio and I have to say that I am absolutely blown away by your history and how you came to this point! I especially admire your financial background. I don't have any big degrees yet, but I'm also very interested in finance (not too much on FX trading but more on Investing and economics). I'm currently working on a site within the finance niche (specifically investing and stock analysis) and I hope to learn something from you someday. I have lots of respect for you!

I have been trying to complete that lesson for 2 weeks now and can't make any forward progress. What am I missing or not doing correctly to stump me?

I believe your personal finance niche is a fantastic one, especially in today's economy. It would have been my niche too but, not being my profession, would be hard for me to have authority.

I'll definitely read your site.
All the best my friend,

Hi Mary, sounds like you did it almost by yourself. That is great, I am so proud of your accomplishments in life. I am 81 years old and just getting started in WA, I am having problems getting it all together, but I guess I will figure it out along the way. You take care and stay in touch with any ideas you may have to show us old folks the way, the right way.

Hi Mary, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

You certainly have had a varied life and shown a great deal of fortitude. It's great you found our group.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Welcome to the WA people.

So I will check out your website, since I am always curious where and HOW to invest money!

Hi Mary,

Thanks for connecting. Sounds like you have a full plate; I applaud your efforts to continuing to seek growth.

I love your niche, and seems like a perfect fit.

I have been in the currencies market for roughly 10 years, and I am developing a website aimed at a Forex niche.

I would love to share ideas, get your feedback and maybe develop some ideas for collaboration.

My niche idea is "Investing in Forex" vs "Trading the FX market".

As I am sure you are aware the Forex arena is packed with charlatans and get rich quick schemes, which I think keeps a lot of real investors away.

I want to connect with real investors to help them see that if treated like a longer term investment tool, the FX market can deliver great returns.

I just started developing content this morning, but I would love your thoughts as I progress.

Thanks again for connecting,
Haven

Hi Haven,
Nice to meet you.
I've been in Forex mostly for hedging. I don't believe you can make steady money from speculations. FX markets are mostly unpredictable, especially in the short term.
It would be interesting to see your "investment point of view".
Any great returns should be combined with the risk level you are ready to take.
Wishing you the best of luck!
Cheers
Mary

WoW, you are awesome!! I just read your bio and am very impressed!! FOREX is something I am super into myself! However, I have never actually traded any money yet. I've just been learning a lot about it and when I get a little bit of money I will start trading for real!

MaryFRM Premium
Hi!
If you ask my opinion - don't do it. Even professional FX traders usually can't produce steady profits. For newbies it's more like a casino, with a risk to develop addiction. You need strict discipline and ability to cut losses.
If you want to try - put in the money that you are ready to loose.

Hi Mary. Thanks a lot for following me. I am extremely interested in personal finances management right now, basically how to use funds wisely, stretch the dollar, save up and start investing. The way I learn is to start from basics and build up. Where in Russia were you born? I am from Russia, lived in Australia and moved to Ireland a few months ago. Thanks for following me. Tanya

I'm from Chelyabinsk.
I just started to put content on my free website here. Still (over)thinking the name for my own domain. PM me if you need advice. I know the best place to keep saving account if you have one, good way to save on online shopping and couple of more tricks. But building your own business here should be the main investment of your time, as the upside is unlimited.

Mary,
What an informative profile, genuine and to the point. I get the idea you know exactly who you are in life and your current focus
on WA. Pleasure to have the opportunity to share the road.

Our munchkins are grown now and have now brought some of my favorite munchkin elves of their own into this zany, often colorful family experience...never felt more blessed.

Time spent reading others thoughts and insights to success has been rewarded in that I learn from each encounter and gain a much broader appreciation and understanding of this platform.

My intention is to develop a blogging style that resonates with
feel that I have found in your brief description here at WA.

I look to the future and perceive there to be so much more satisfaction out there to discover and appreciate. Thanks and welcome here At WA, Mary


Shine brilliant and share your fortune

I'm still looking for my style. I used to write kind of academically, as I produced long reports for clients and market overviews. But I doubt it will be good for blogging, as I might be perceived as a snob using too long words and sentences. Also, I tend to preach my opinion and not let the reader decide. So I'm trying different styles now, not sure which will sound more natural and connect my reader to me. It depends on who the reader is. Well, we can't please them all.
Thank you for your comment!

Ok,
I can add to your thought here Mary and say that is not necessarily a matter of pleasing anyone, but that the information we convey resonates with a need others are looking to answer.

It is important enough for me to note, that there is a world of people to underestimate in question of conveying our message clearly, as there is a world of appreciation out there for the ideas to come off direct and concise in their meaning.

More importantly is the capture of a few busy moments in a persons day to aide in their interest or desire to move their passion forward...and be ENTERTAINED

When you think of it we buy and make our purchase decisions
mainly based upon people we like...and interests we share.
As you have said not all people will gravitate toward us but then
again of nearly seven billion-quite a few might...so here are those
of us so far...write brilliant,the stars are in your favor

Hi Mary
Thank you for allowing me into your following of friends. I've added you to my list as well.

Wow! your bio had me out of breath just reading all the things you do and manage. Three little ones plus extracurricular activities and now WA. I don't see the badge for an overachiever but if they had one I'd give it to ya.

I truly don't see why you wouldn't be able to achieve your new goals here in WA. You have the will, the knowledge to put into content, the desire and the passion to get this WA vehicle on full throttle.

I'm very impressed by the individuals who come here to WA with their unique abilities to share with others and uplift them in order to boost their moral or just put a smile on their face to make their day.

You're just another one of those gems Mary. Welcome to WA and congratulations on becoming a WA member. It is my honor to have met your acquaintance and I hope to hear of your success stories in the future.

Again it was a pleasure meeting you and I wish you the best of success in all your endeavors.

Don't hesitate to ask questions when you get stuck. We got your back, Mary.

Be safe and God bless

Rick

Hi Mary, you have an amazing skill in time management. 3 kids and still being able to hit the gym 3x per week + reading sounds like Wonder Woman to me. With that kind of mentality, no doubt you will soon be vacationing with your family upon the success at WA.

Hello Mary (why Maria as a profile name?) and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with all your previous experience online you still may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

If so you must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thanks for following me, Mary.

Your business and financial sense will be an asset here at WA.

I'm also new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

If you enjoy the WA community, look into Going Yearly as soon as you can. I hear there is a lot more interaction at this level. I will be Going Yearly sometime today since I have saved up this May (using my birthday money and savings from tax refund).

Plus the benefits are sweet to be dedicated for a year.

All the best,

Louisa
