About NanMarie
Joined December 2015
Hi my name is Nancy Nelson. I am seamstress, secretary and entrepreneur trying to learn and improve blogging and business skills for success.

I don’t know where I am going, but I am going, are you going with me?
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nancy Nelson. I am seamstress, secretary and entrepreneur trying to learn and improve blogging and business skills for success. I have no idea what topic or topics I am going to blog about. That is not totally true. I have a deep passion for entrepreneurship and a goal of helping small business owners more effectively manage their business to be successful.

In the end the main goal is to be helpful in some way to all of you wonderful and different human beings. Who knows maybe we can all be helpful to each other. In the end, when our life is all done, isn’t that point anyway? I don’t want to just cry and moan about struggles and frustrations, I want to share the solutions, tips and hints to solve them. I want to be part of the solution not part of the problem. Won’t you come along for the journey?

To put myself out there on a more personal level I think I will share a bit about my work, hobbies, passions, and interests.

Let’s start with my work. Yes, my “day job” that one that gives me the regular paycheck. I am a church secretary! That is secretary not the “church lady” from Saturday Night Live. I am probably not your average church secretary either. My work apparel is casual and sometimes my Friday casual day includes, gasp, dare I say it, sweatpants. I love what I do in my “day job” because I get to be myself, be compassionate, be creative, have a say, and I even have my own office with a window view and, most of all, I am reminded that I am a child of God each and everyday. I don’t think it gets any better. I am good at what I do and will likely share my skills in some of my blog posts.

Next, we will take a look at my hobbies. Oh boy this may take a while. I will just make a list:

sewing
crafting
sewing
archery
sewing
quilting
sewing
reading
sewing
scrapbooking
sewing
organizing
sewing
gardening
sewing

Oh and did I mention sewing? Don’t worry it’s not going to turn into a sewing blog. I already have one over at Nelson Sewing & Crafts.

You may have noticed no mention of cooking or baking. Yeah, not my forte. . . at all. It’s a wonder my family survives at all. We are not fading away to nothing, that I can say with certainty. Actually, quite the opposite is true. The exception will be my husband, he literally works his tail off in the construction industry. To be exact he is a Manhole Rehabilitation Technician at Rehab Systems, Inc. Yes, that was a nice little plug for his company. When you see the photos, the man in the white suit being lowered into the manhole is my man. Fortunately for me, he has been my man for the last 25 almost 26 years. Our two sons and one daughter and Rex (our dog) complete the picture.

Let’s talk about passions. My passion is to make the world a better place. I was always taught to leave a place better than I found it. I hope we can all strive for that so there is kindness, compassion and love the world over. I am full of ideas of how you and I can make a difference in our own communities. I also have a passion for entrepreneurship, especially for the small town businesses and home based businesses. I have a passion for empowering people and youth to discover who they are and what they can be.

Finally, I will give you a look into my interests. I define interests as things I tend to dabble in and want to learn. As an example, I have an interest in learning how I can make money as a blogger. Wow! I can tell you that there are millions of “experts” out there, what a journey to decipher the facts from the fiction. (I am using my nice words.)

Another example is my interest in writing a book. Another interest is losing weight. (Notice how I have listed weight loss as a mere interest at this point in the game.) Not quite on the number one spot of my must do list, however, it should be.

I have an interest in traveling. I don’t count the trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota with our Boy Scout Troop as “real” travel. Vacation? What’s that? My husbands idea of vacation is taking time off for hunting season. My idea is taking time off . . . period. No place to go, nothing to do, go with the flow, whatever. That is my idea of a vacation.

I have an interest in photography. I love movies, especially science fiction. Not that scary, horror, zombie science fiction stuff. I like space science fiction, you know, Star Trek, Star Wars and other similarly well made movies. I like other genres too when I am in the right mood, but I am always in the mood for good science fiction. I like historical fiction too but it better have a hunky leading man and a sizzling romance to go with it. (Yeah, I am so not the “the church lady”) At any rate I have a whole bucket list of interests. that I will likely blog about some time in the future as well.

Please join me on this journey.
It’ll be fun!

I have just read your blog and have decided that you may be the one for my question. I am trying to make a website about knitting and crocheting. I am considering knittingcrocheting.com as a domain name. Do you know if it would be better just to let it be a siterubix instead, since it would save me money at the start.
Reply
NanMarie Premium
First, thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate it very much. Second, I would make a list of alternative domain names around the one you have in case it isn't available. Just brainstorm and fun with it. Third, the one you have is good but maybe consider shortening it up a bit to maybe knitcrochet.com. You have to kind of think about what the name would like when all the letters are put together. I would go ahead and purchase the domain name you choose which you can do here at WA. I think it's like $13.99 per year for life. Here are some of my brainstorm ideas:

Knit & Crochet
Knit & Crochet Club (www.knitcrochet.com)
Knit One Pearl Two
Hooked on Needlework
Nifty Needleworks
Yarn Over
Slipped Stitch
Crochet Central
Crochet Chronicle
Crafty Crochet Club
Needlework Network
Needlework News
The Crochet & Knit Corner (www.knitchrochetcorner.com)

The title of your website can be longer than your domain name, for example in mine, Nelson Sewing & Crafts, I have shortened it to www.nelsonsewing.com because I didn't want people guessing if it was the word "and" or the ampersand "&" when technically it is the latter.

When you are up and running please let me know I would love to comment on your site and maybe we could share eachother's links on our sites. Knitting and crocheting is not a craft I partake in but I would love to be able to point those interested in the craft to a friend here at WA.

If you want to bounce any ideas off me anytime I would be happy to help.

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! :)

I think I have it narrowed down pretty well. I have a few other ideas for future use as well. The keyword training was extremely helpful.

Hi Nancy,

My name is LeNard, and I would like to thank you for following me. I'm finding that my time spent here at Wealthy Affiliate is very productive and educational.

I joined over a year ago and did nothing until a week ago.

WOW! Things changed quickly. I'm now writing with confidence, my business is showing an improvement, and I feel better about what we are trying to do here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Get engaged everyone, because it works.

Nancy, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Nancy.

Thanks. Just trying to tackle things step by step while still taking care of my sewing customers and my day job. I don't think I have a lack of ideas it is more about creating a plan of attack. The bootcamp is helping with that a lot. Thanks again.

I do need a bit of help. The theme I chose is suppose to have the pages listed across the top of each page just under the tag line. It is not showing up and I can't seem to figure out how to make it show up. It is the site I am making here at WA nannelson.com

Hi again Nancy! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

So did you get your website built yet? In case you haven't you can do it here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

If you have, let's take a look! Maybe I can give you some pointers.
Reply
NanMarie Premium
I have my website started. I don't have the three pages yet just one post which is more of an about me sort of thing. The About Me page will be much more brief. Right now I am neck deep in prom dress alterations so sure how fast I am going to get through bootcamp right now. So time organization posts for writing posts and maintaining a website would be useful. My site for WA is nannelson.com I have others but this is the one I am experimenting with here at WA. My other ones are nelsonsewing.com, cherokeefcc.com, cherokeefdac.org, ccfunddrive.org and parttimeproprietor.com a few of them need some serious updating. Thanks for your support I am already feeling very welcome here at WA.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
That's a lot of websites! Which one will be your focus? Are you focusing on doing a WA promo website in the "make money online" niche, or pursuing the sewing niche with http://www.nelsonsewing.com/ ?
Reply
NanMarie Premium
The two I mainly want to focus on are the Part Time Proprietor one which is the make money online niche or work at home niche and the Nelson Sewing & Crafts one which is where my expertise truly lives.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
OK, focusing on these two websites sounds like a good idea. Keep moving through the training as Kyle is teaching. Once you get those three core pages set up for your site, he'll show you how to start creating blog posts based on your keyword research!

Let me know if you have any trouble with the lessons along the way.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Nancy!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.
