About Mcknisu
Joined November 2018
I am excited to learn more about all the people at Wealthy Affiliate and to work with all of you to start a new amazing business and make some good money.

I was born in Niagara Falls Ont Canada, and now I live in a small town nearby I also spend time at my Happy Place in the desert in Tucson, AZ. I grew up in working in the hardware business with my Dad and I loved it. I still love hardware stores. My Dad decided to retire and I began to search for a new career. I saw a course for MCP + Internet in the newspaper, had no idea what it was about but went to check it out.

I was told I would never every have to worry about a job if I took and finished the course. Well, I took the course, worked my butt off, studied like mad, took extremely difficult and technical exams and two weeks after the course was done I landed an IT tech contract job onsite at a large financial firm in the corporate world.

I took extra courses and exams to get the designation of Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, along with Microsoft Certified Trainer designation. I went on to work in this field as a computer tech building and fixing computers, resolving computer hardware and software issues, building and supporting networks and telecommunications as well as training new MCSE's in the evening. From there I reached for the sky and worked a variety of technical and Management jobs for large corporations.

Life was good, I made really good money, I loved my job! I helped others with computer problems and evolved into a well respected computer tech and then moved up into an awesome IT Management position.

But....then I was also trying to raise a family and have a life of some sort outside of work and I experienced major burn out.

I realized I just had to find something else and my brain ached for a new direction until I searched and searched on the internet and found Wealthy Affiliate.

WA is my new direction. I was really shy about working in Social Media, I never liked Facebook and felt some people used it as a dating site, however I am now just starting to come out of my comfort zone and with the help of my fellow WA affiliates, I am starting to change and move forward.

Now I am so excited to be part of the WA Community and learn about social media etc. There is much to learn and do every day before I sleep....and I am determined to:

Just Do It!

What an interesting bio, and how well it hit me! I didn't do any of your "tech stuff", but pretty much all the rest hit me right in the gut! A very interesting read, and I will be interested in following your progress here. What you describe sort of sums up my own expectations here as well. Hope I can "borrow" some of your bio content / way of putting it?

Best of luck on your journey!

Stopped over and read your bio.
I to was extremely shy about social media,
but I wanted to get into the internet way of making
a living so I came out of my shell. Because I needed
to get my self out there to get internet presence.

That was the best decision I ever made! I use to have
Facebook to see what other people were doing. Now
I am active on my FB and I have a couple FB Biz pages
and life has not been better.

I have gotten so much positive response from my FB
friends. So it gets better, we get use to change. Keep
changing because the world does.

Happy to connect with you and wish you a prosperous

Hello Susan And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your other awesome experience and skillset you might still come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 490+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great Sunday.
mcknisu Premium
Hi there, yes so much to learn!! My background is nothing like internet marketing. I will check out your blogs. I find that sometimes I get stuck but looking at different perspectives and others blogs helps so much. Thank you.
Robert-A Premium
No probs Susan and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also although you have been a member since last November you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Sunday and the week to come.

Welcome to WA!

You will find here a great business opportunity to build for yourself a site that you can monetize to sell products related to your site.

You will find excellent training and a group of people anxious to help develop your site. The training here is second to none; there are folks here who are earning their entire income from home and show others how to do the same!

Most of us are promoting different products so that is no competition among us. This is unlike many other places where everybody is given the same site, sell the same product, and wonder why nothing happens.

There is also individual training here by members showing the finer points of internet marketing and how to make it all work for you.

It does take some time and focus but it is possible for anybody to do - even for those who barely know how to turn on their computer!

Welcome Again,

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what your learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.
