About MineThatBird
Joined April 2018
I am a mother of five children (school age), lived & studied in Europe for several years (before kids), graduate degree (J.D.), had a great income/career in corporate world (telecom attorney for a decade, big D.C. law firm with river views in Georgetown), but took time off to be able to be with my kids.

I am working on finding the balance between (1) being the best mother I can be, and (2) building streams and rivers of mostly automated income and revenue-producing assets that help people AND will allow me to do all of the things I want to do with and for my children and my whole family. I also aspire to be in a position financially to make a difference for causes that help to lift people up, as well as to support groups that protect animals and protect our beautiful Earth.

I have more than a decade of experience creating websites that offer lots of valuable information (and get #1 Google rankings), but until I joined Wealthy Affiliates I wasn't "monetizing" my online work.

I also have a great deal of experience with online commerce/retail (founded a top-ranking online shop in my niche), as well as with Amazon FBA.

I am passionate about the power of choosing the right foods to prevent and reverse illnesses and disease; I have personally witnessed what I would call miracles as a result of people changing the foods they choose. Except that the "miraculous" results actually are predictable results when these kinds of delicious foods are chosen and eaten in abundance.

I am fortunate to count as friends some of the top nutritional scientists/medical doctors/biochemists in the world, truly an honor - these are great people who are saving lives with their work.

Check out one of my websites linked at the bottom of the right-hand side of the page (under "Follow Me On"). This is the first website I created after joining WA, using jaaxy and the WA training. This is just one of my niches; I wanted to start applying my WA training to the topic that I thought was the most important, life-changing, and potentially life-saving for many people around the world. If you visit, please leave a comment, let me know what you think, ask questions!

I am dedicated to learning (and applying) everything I can about affiliate marketing. I'm excited to jump in, starting fresh! I am inspired by WA members, and I appreciate all of the helpful people here at WA.

Hi MineThatBird, Your bio is quite interesting and you have accomplished a lot. How did you manage school, business and family? Are you a Superwoman or one of the lucky few?
I'm happy to meet you here at WA. You have what it takes to make it here. I'm following you.
Welcome and good luck.

Hi Cal, Thanks for your message :) You're right, it's hard to balance everything! I finished my undergraduate studies, studies for several years in France, and law school before I had children. By the time I had my third baby I decided to take a break from my law firm work as a telecom attorney to be able to focus on my young children. (I'm still a lawyer, VA Bar and DC Bar, but not practicing law currently).

Turns out that founding and running my own businesses has been a huge amount of work, but my work schedule is more flexible. (I can just work through the night as necessary, although, not ideal!) Working on improving everything through my work online so that I will no longer need to work those kinds of hours :)

Thanks again for your message; I look forward to following your successes here at WA!

Wow, you have so many great accomplishments in your life. You should be very proud of yourself. I am following you now.

I really like the way you write. I feel the passion you have for your life's work ethics and your beliefs in the science of the health products. I am going to check out your website now to see what help and advice you give, inorder for me to lead a better healthy lifestyle.

I wish you great success and a prosperous future.

Hi Kate, Thanks for the follow. Great bio, seems like we have similar passions. Although not my niche, eating healthy and fitness is a big one for me and part of my life every day. If you think about it, if you don't have good health you have very little.

Currently I am in the process of building an Amazon FBA business as well and just ordered my first shipment. This product is designed to curb everyday plastic use. Next step is to build that website here.

Haven't figured out Instagram yet but I need to do that soon! I did not see any link here on this page saying "follow me on". Feel free to send me a link to your site.

Regards,
Mike

Mike, It's fantastic you just ordered your first Amazon FBA shipment! So exciting! Kudos for getting it done!

I just read a Walt Disney quote (from WA member Linda103's Instagram, I think!) that is a propos: "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." - Walt Disney

You are well on your way - you have accomplished so much in taking all of those steps to getting your first shipment ordered.

I am looking forward to following your successes here at WA and wishing you great success for your Amazon FBA business!

Thank you Kate! It is a lot of work but worth it. I often need to think back how much I have accomplished in the past 2 years.

Jay here at WA recently stated: "The reason people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still need to go, instead of how far they have gotten..."

I really need to going on Instagram before product launch and start posting!

Thanks for the follow and you are speaking my language when I comes to when it comes to eating good healthy foods to help the body!
I have ready many books in gut health and believe wholly that the gut is connected to the brain and then eating the right foods can help heal the gut and help the brain!
I may be getting a lot of advice from you!

MineThatBird Premium
You are so right. Gut health and healthy nutrition = the key. And it's all so amazingly simple! I am so (unbelievably) fortunate to count as friends some of the top worldwide nutritional experts/biochemists/US medical doctors who are experts in nutrition. Several years I considered going to medical school (USA) to become a medical doctor in nutrition -- but had misgivings because I am a lawyer with excellent credentials and have already spent a great deal of time building my career as a telecom lawyer. Then I learned there is NO SUCH THING as a medical doctor degree in nutrition. WHAT? Why not?!!! I couldn't imagine going to medical school and having to take exams in which I would have to regurgitate back to them all of the answers they want to hear about which pharma drugs to prescribe... when I already KNOW the truth that for the vast majority of illnesses and disease there is a SIMPLE fix: it's the FOOD!!!
ah, well.
Kate

How about a integrative doctor.... or a naturopathic doctor... is there a degree for nutrition in that area? I do think it's crazy as well as most people will go directly to their doctor for nutritional advice as well!

Your profile pic is the best - it's fantastic that you are doing the training with your son as part of his homeschooling! Awesome!
I am excited to follow your journey together.

Curious: have you considered focusing on Youtube and Instagram (starting with one or the other, then adding the next) in addition to your website(s)?

I'm going to work on mastering youtube and instagram with my children - these platforms are so much more natural for my kids than for me, so we'll combine our strengths!

Youtube currently has 2+billion monthly active users;
Instagram currently has 1+ billion monthly active users
(in comparison, Pinterest has something like 250 million monthly active users).

The numbers are compelling!

Thank you!! X
Really interesting!! My son has experience with YouTube., and that platform would suit his Guinea pig niche. He also has Instagram...
I feel that my current niche is more suited to Pinterest (Empowering Children to be their best selves and be happy)
Would love to know how you get on with those platforms!
I would like to do more with these also, but when I am more familiar with websites and finish the training!!
Those numbers sure are compelling!!
How old are your kids?
Mine are 7, 12, and 21( not at home any more) :)

Thank you, Pedrone! After reading your bio I have been thinking about beautiful Italy -- I miss Italia! Lovely country, wonderful people, it will be fun to go back for a visit with my children. They will be so surprised to hear me speaking in Italian (and more surprised to hear me speaking French - I lived in France for 3 years, at the time French was like a second native language for me. It's been a while, though... :)
Ciao and all the best!
I used to sign all of my letters to friends "tanti baci," but now hardly anyone is writing letters! I would prefer a real letter to any kind of social media :)

Good evening to you, K, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
Maybe someday we need to sit down and compare keywords lists and strategies. I have a few Position one, Page one on Google also and not enough traffic.LOL. It works best having a sales funnel (like what Russel Brunson is doing with ClickFunnels).
I look forward to working with you helping you turn things around to be successful. I wish you much enjoyment and satisfaction on your WA journey.

Hello, Thanks for your message :) I am working through the materials, trying to figure out how Jaaxy works, hoping I'm not doing too much research rather than jumping in! One step at at time. One thing I want to better understand is taking the Jaaxy numbers for a specific keyword, then figuring out if there are viable profit margins on affiliate products in that niche. How about you?

Well my biggest hang up was doing research and not generating content :-) I say pick a keyword to get started you can always go back and modify it or write a new article.

Hey K,

I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing? Hopefully you have had a chance to get started with the training?

When I first started here at Wealthy Affiliate I had a bunch of questions in the first few days and needed quite a bit of help as I had zero experience coming in :)

If you have any questions I will be more than happy to help out, just let me know and I'll do my best to lend a hand.

Cheers,

Mike

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! :)

Hi K, Mike here from http://avoidonlinemarketingscams.com,

I am so happy you made the decision to take advantage of this opportunity. If you are determined and can stick with your training here at WA it can open the door to an exciting and rewarding future as it has for me. This is where your online business is going to be realized. Here's the course that started me down the road to an unbelievable lifestyle and one that is now within your reach. From this point on you will have not only my support in person but the ability to ask any questions of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Without wasting too much time you can now access the Online Entrepreneur level 1 online course found in the main menu by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button.

Here's the link to lesson 1: This is the course that I started with and lead me to my first sale online!

If you are willing to put in an honest effort and take the bull by the horns I will personally help you through the course or with any questions or concerns you may have in your quest to make your online business a reality.

I can be reached through my personal profile at any time when you have any questions...trust me, you will!

Oh! Lesson 3 "Finding A Niche" for many is the most challenging to get through without pulling out your hair and the occasional temper tantrum so I have created some extra material that I feel will be of huge benefit to you while working through this lesson, let me know when you are there and I will give you if you upon request.

Don't forget to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself! You will find many WA members come offering their help and asking you to follow them which is a great resource for you to have access too, many members here have a wealth of knowledge that you can tap into.

Just a quick heads up! You can just do the course and that's it or you can take advantage of a discount on a premium membership here at WA. There is absolutely no pressure to change your status, but if you decide to become a Premium member and unlock absolutely everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer and do so before your 7 day course is over you will qualify for a 50% discount on the first month of your membership.

I look forward to getting to know you and being able to help out when you have questions.

Cheers, Mike
