About MelJen
Joined February 2015
I recently found myself having to start over after some pretty tough life circumstances and am optimistic that Wealthy Affiliate will be a viable way forward for me. Having contracted a neurological disease in my early thirties while raising two daughters as a single parent, I can tell you I have some neat experience with budgeting, or as I prefer to call it, 'living well on little.'

Part way through a psychology degree when life intervened with its other plans, I found I wasn't well enough to continue my Bachelor of Applied Science. After some decades however, I'm now completing a Diploma of Professional Counseling, which is not as prestigious but still in line with my main passion in life - ie human behaviour. I find it fascinating, though at times disturbing. What I've read in the textbooks can be applied in so many practical ways to everyday experience, and as I look back over the years, I've been able to identify the many areas that would have benefited had I been wiser earlier. My goal is to use both my personal experience of physical, personal and relationship issues, coupled with my growing knowledge in the field, to reach out an educate others. A stitch in time....as they say.

Both my daughters are now beautiful, responsible, compassionate and aware young women, and my grandchildren are growing up the same way. We encourage and support each other through any and everything. One has branched into Information Technology and is my go-to gal for anything technical. I'm in awe of her expertise. The other is a qualified hairdresser who's now undertaking a creative arts degree. We're a happy little motley crew.

Much of my thinking can be found online on my two blogs. I love to write. Let me emphasize that. I LOVE to write! I've been published a modest number of times in anthologies, magazines and even newspapers. My dream is most definitely to publish the two novels, aimed at middle school children, that I'm in the midst of writing, and to use my life experience to publish information about verbal, emotional and psychological abuse.

Other than that, my interests are quite varied. A garden is an absolute must in my life - organically grown is my preference. And never does a week go by that I'm not working on a creative or DIY project. I'm rather fond of my power tools these days. Looking forward to meeting others here on Wealthy Affiliate and to paving a nice little niche area to play with.

Update: I just noticed a post that states it's okay for us to put our website addresses here in our profiles. If anyone is interested, my first is all about emotional and psychological abuse - it's www.killingmesoftly.co - and my second is www.soulandspiritmusings.com I plan to migrate them over to WA a little further down the track.

1. $250 a week.
2. $800 a week.
3. Hmmm...I'm juggling quite a few balls at the moment, particularly until I finish my diploma. However, I can set aside around 15 hours a week at the moment and see how it goes from there. My health can sometimes dictate time, energy and even cognitive capacity.

Hey Melinda!

Just wanted to run something by you, in case you didn't know, so you won't miss out on anything here..

There's 1 day left for you to get a 59% discount on Premium. I highly recommend this for you. I think it'd be a great move! But, it's optional.

Cheers!
Vince

Thanks again. I got off to a slow start as I was in the midst of completing a module of study. I've spent some time catching up on lessons now and look forward to the learning process.
