About Meadow Breeze
Joined December 2010
Hi Everyone, I have wanted to create a successful Home Based Business for a long time. This time I have confidence that I am going to make this happen. There's a lot of very good information here and its up to us to implement what we learn. I hope to make some friends and maybe be an inspiration to some buddies in the future. I am sure there are some great people in the WA Communities, so far everyone that I have encountered seems to have that "You can do it attitude"! And I appreciate that. This past year (2010) has been a very tough year for so many of us, but if we can pass on that "You can do it attitude",and try to help each other, we shall gain personal success in return! I live in Randleman, NC, USA. My hobbies are Art, RC Airplanes and now Internet Marketing seems to be rising to the top. I have been happily married for 30 yrs +. I would like to make some buddies to climb these mountains of Success because together "We can do it!" Meadow Breeze //// When you pay a price for something that saves you time and helps you make
money, that price becomes an investment!+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Hello Everyone, I really missed WA for the past year and a half. I guess I'll start over & try this again. While I was gone, I have been able to establish a successful home based business. I am in healthcare and I have a person with Developmental Disabilities who lives with me and my wife. This is called Alternative Family Living (AFL) here in NC. I am still interested in learning and being successful at IM. I know from previous membership that WA is the best place to learn. I still have a passion in the arts & I would Love to create a website featuring and selling murals and home decor! Looking forward to hearing from friends of the past and making new friends as well! So much to learn here, so lets GO!

Thought I would follow you -- I liked your Microsoft Air blog, I like RC planes and art too. I know from experience that your art probably took much time to reach the level it's at. I appreciate it very much. All the best ...

Glad to meet a like-minded artistic person here in WA. What great pictures you do.
I'm new here, so there is much to learn and to read. I have started bootcamp, and it feels good.
Sure would like to be able to make income from home, and mix it with art and other creative is my desire to overthrow WA. And you're right, we'll try to help each other. / Mia

Not a critisism at all - just a suggestion. I have yet to get my first site done and the attemps at Word Press kicked my but or got interupted to much at the office/day job (my company).

Thanks Pete, Yes I do enjoy art along with a variety of other hobbies that I have done in the past. Sure wish I could afford to fly a plane. I used to have a hobby building and flying RC planes. It was a cool hobby and I hope someday to get back to it. Thanks for your tip on the website, I'll try your tip soon on Word Press. Have a great day Pete.

Hi Devan, Thanks for your compliment on the paintings, but more so Thanks for adding me as a buddy! There are so many great things about WAU, but having friends who are looking for the same type of success is really cool! Sometimes it's the little things that a friend can say or do that makes the difference. Sometimes if a friend just shares an idea it can shed a different light on our target! Have a Great day, lets visit from time to time and let me know how things are going.

Thanks for your compliment. I love art of all types. I usually paint seasonally, mostly in the winter. This past season I did not paint much because of my new hobby in IM. (time factor) I look forward to painting more as I get better established w/IM. I usually paint from either photos of other people work but often I create a scene as I go! Many times the paintings look nothing like what I was thinking to start with. Some artists are never really happy with their own work, we always feel we should have done better. I would love to see some of your art. i hope we can share some ideas and some comments on future blogs. lets share ideas and encourage each other as we slide down that "Banister of Success!"

Thanks for your compliment, I haven't done any more paintings since I joined WAU just before Christmas. I have always liked to explore a variety of hobbies and I guess art is my favorite. I hope to find a niche in hobbies that i can make some dough with. Hardly ever sold my paintings,gave many to family and friends. My wife seems to treasure a few of them. Me, I am never really satisfied like a lot of artist. Sometimes just keep changing the big picture until I get where I feel I can not make it better. It's beginning to look like, that's the way I look at Internet Marketing. Yes I know what you mean it keeping up with a family!

Hi Meadow Breeze,
See you have been a member since 12/2010. When you joined did you know of a niche you wanted to pursue, did you use the tools here or are you still looking? Just trying to get an idea of what people are doing. I have only been a member a few days and am still reading up on niches and keywords.

Hi Buddy, I have always had an interest in different hobbies that people tend to spend their spare time with. I figure that this would be a good starter niche for me and that I would be able to learn more about writing articles on a subject that I could relate to better. I am still narrowing deeper into different types of hobbies. I still find it hard not to be overwhelmed at the vast array of information available here at WAU. Focus is sometimes my biggest weakness, I get side tracked easily. I really enjoy being a part of this community.I still have a lot to learn. Please stay in touch and let me know if I can help, I would be happy to do so.

These paintings are superb! It is great to meet a fellow artisan. (I'm photography). Read, re-read the training. Don't try to cram. You WILL get brain overload and do not feel bad if you have to walk away and come back 20 minutes later. In fact I would encourage it. Best of luck to you! Make sure you watch the webinars and try to join us live! :-) Potpiegirl has some excellent video clips to watch too!

Hi Meadow Breeze! Great to hear from you and I agree that the whole concept of sharing with and supporting each other is very refreshing and incouraging. I love RC Airplanes and have 3 ready to fly but unfortunately I haven't flown for about 9 years now. My nephew grew up and our flying field was annexed but hope to get back to it. So many other things to do like this IM. You are a very talented artist. Gordo48

Hi Meadow Breeze! I see you're new to WA...but hang in there. It takes major persistence to piece together this work ...but it is profound learning and application. As you apply what you learn, you will bump into walls. That's ok. Even first efforts seem as if they're going nowhere...when in reality, every small step you take adds up to some major learning insights! Stay tuned for more of my blog posts. I'm working through major stuff designed to truly help others not only leverage the WA blog & funnel and more...but to truly build a "mass targeted" campaign that hits the entire US. If you want any help, let me know. I'm here! bkb2012.

Painting with Acrylics//The wonderful thing about painting with acrylics is that often this kind of paint is every bit as expressive as oil paint yet dries rather swiftly (about a 30 minutes). As it would seem, acrylics are a synthetic paint, created by combining vinyl polymer resins and acrylic-polymer with pigments. Just how much of water to use when painting with acrylics will have a substantial relating the consistency with the paint as well as visual appeal on the canvas. Usually when an artist is mixing acrylic paint, it is ideal to obtain a balance between thick and watery paint. Sometimes I use the paint directly from the tube, while deciding the consistency and amount of paint I need. Using them from the tube they look a little creamy, as the paint is good and thick.

Painting with Acrylics can be applied making use of the many ordinary oil based painting approaches, like glazing. Acrylic Painting happens to be very popular today with artists and crafts men and women throughout the world. Forget about odors and allergies to solvents, so typical to oil painting.

Yet another advantage of painting with acrylics is the adaptability of use and their relatively quick drying time (often merely a few minutes.) However, if a longer drying time is required in certain occasions, a medium for use with acrylic paints has been developed. Hence, acrylic painting is often considered a lot more appealing way of painting. I love painting with acrylic paints, since you can hide it pretty much if one makes an error, a lot of paints like watercolor are too transparent to cover mistakes.

Also I work with a larger range of colours when Painting with Acrylics than I do with oils. This saves me a good deal time on mixing, but they're also quite fluid when you water them down and so they show up transparent. You may also create a number of results start out using other acrylic mediums with the paint. It is perfect for artists, they really like it, because it's quick to dry. While acrylics are wet, you are able to use the brush to softly blend or adjust the pigment until it looks right. You can also paint thickly in an impasto fashion with acrylics. Acrylics react well to thinning and can be painted over in fairly fast sequence. When selecting brushes for acrylic paint, you'll probably want to think about using nylon brushes, because acrylic paints are extremely tough on natural hair brushes. If you wish to go beyond brushes and add interesting textures as well, use sponges, rags or anything else your creative imagination invents.

Still working with the large brush, I slowly improve colors and shapes, ensuring the composition contains the look, I want. It's tough to avoid the temptation to go straight to detail, but I've determined that almost nothing spoils a painting so quickly as getting out a small brush to soon. Few artists develop the talent to keep all the values, shapes and colors correct while working only using a small brush.

You belong to a group/// People born between 1946 and 1964 you belong to a group called the "Baby Boomers" and many are approaching retirement. This will be the largest number of older adults to enter retirement for the first time in the history of this country. This generation is estimated to be populated at 70 million. Baby boomers are finding themselves in a place they have never been before. Many of them are sandwiched between planning their own retirement and providing care for elderly loved ones.

People born between 1966 to 1979 you belong to a group called "Generation X". These are street-savvy survivors who grew up quickly amid rising divorce rates, latchkey lifestyles, AIDS, violence and low expectations. They don't work to live, but rather live to work. Ambitious and independent, they strive to balance the competing demands of work, family and personal life. Generation X is an estimated 50 million strong. This generation is often referred to as "baby busters," as they are attributed to a rapid decline in birth rates after the Baby Boomers.

People born between 1976-1995 or 1988-2001 depending on the source, you belong to a group called "Generation Y" which is vastly different from previous generations - especially Boomers. Members of Gen Y cut their teeth on computer keyboards, and to them, computer technology and the Internet are as natural as breathing. This generation's members know more about digital technology than their parents or teachers, and this promises to change not only the way families interact and communicate, but also how young people relate to school and learning. Generation Y employees in particular are viewed as idealistic, with a high level of social consciousness. Generally outspoken, they make up the largest pool of young people in the job market today. Promises of monetary rewards and overtime pay may not interest them as much as time off to attend a party, concert or just hang out with their friends. What’s unique about Generation Y is the way they communicate; as in they never stop communicating with one another. Between facebook, twitter, text message and smart phones they’re constantly in contact.

Hi Meadow, You are in an excellent place to learn Internet Marketing. I would be very happy to be your buddy. Be sure to attend Jay's WA-binar tomorrow night. It'll help give you perspective.

I work with CJ, Linkshare, Google Affiliate Network, and Shareasale. Of all of them, I like Shareasale the best. Not sure CJ credits you for all the sales. I think they're careless. All of them usually wait a month before paying you commissions. I think that is to cover returns and charge backs. Chargebacks are not a big problem, at most 10%. I don't have too many of those. You have to bear in mind that this is a numbers game. Just go after as many conversions as you can. Affiliates are fine. But even better is to have your own product eventually and have affiliates selling your product. Look forward to sharing in the New Year! Have a Merry!
