About Norland
Joined February 2014
I was a registered nurse for 30 years but currently not working as one; Recently tried to start a business, with website, LLC, and all, but was majorly scammed, and now just trying to go through the recovery phases. Also, trying to regain my trust in people in general. I don't presently have a niche in mind but would like to explore and get a fresh start.
On a personal note, I am very health-minded/ health conscious, for obvious reasons; Passionate about music, and theater.

Nice goals Laurie,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

I look forward to working with you :)

Hi Norland,
Thank you for the follow. Liked your profile, thing to remember is that some of the most successful people failed at their first attempt. I don't know if you are still looking for a niche, but with your health background you could consider a niche with advising or supplying surgical aids or providing health and advice for that increasing demographic called the ageing population. Or music therapy etc.
Good luck!
Blessings
Bethamy.

Thanks, Bethany, for the encouragement, I think we all can never get enough of that.
I have chosen a niche, and have a website started,- just stopped posting it on my profile for now, since it's still under construction.

Norland, Thanks again for the kind words! I really did enjoy checking out the Robert Cray Band and please forgive the braggin' but that is the level of my keyboard playing. I've played with a couple of bands, but my main stuff was studio work in Nashville at little, but that was on the drums. ENOUGH, already!!!! lol. La Jolla! One of the most beautiful places on earth! I've been there several times. Also, I have a brother that lives in L.A. (Ceritos, actually) (sp!) I live near Indianapolis, IN....fly over country...from the land where winter will never end!!! Five months of snow!!! Enough already! But it's really beautiful when the weather changes...but you don't have that to ..ah......deal with, or enjoy.....depending on your point of view. Next PM, we'll talk about nothin' but websites and marketing and internet sales. I promise.

Hey Laurie,

I like the idea of your site. I left you a message there.
I also want to tell you that I have read an incredible book on frequency, really really amazing book that I recommend and share with you, if you want it. I have it in a pdf and mobi format, (for e-reader). Just let me know. Oh, it's "Frequency, The Power Of Personal Vibration" by Penney Peirce.
Good luck on this road, the domain is big and a lot have been discovered.

You say you were scammed by website LLC? Have you checked them out on scam.com or any other scam exposer sites? I wonder if Kyle has or would do a review on them. I've never heard of them.

Hey, Randy, the scam I was victim of started out as a home based business offer, and where the LLC came in was when these people suddenly moved their offices,(and then became totally unreachable by phone) assigning me to another out of state company to build a website for me . The website guys were the ones who set me up with the LLC. Anyway, I checked out scam.com, and typed in 'global network marketing' (alt. with "'nationwide lending") which is what they called themselves. These predators not only have a habit of 'moving offices' mysteriously, they also change names frequently, so I looked for anything that even came close. The closest hit I found was a company called 'global net warehouse' and they did fit the description pretty closely to what I had experienced, so I believe it can be assumed that even though they were in a lawsuit charged by the FTC of scamming people in the US and Canada out of more than 6 million dollars they seem to go merrily on their way merely by a change of the "company" name.
Thank you for showing me the website. I'm still working on recovering the money taken from me, and with credit card companies and a lawyer's help, I have been marginally successful.

OK I sure wish you all the luck in the world on that. The sad thing is there are tons of scammers out there. I guess we live and we learn don't we. Then again some of us just live.

I had lots of patients in my last hospital position who opted to have Reiki added to their therapies--which translates to "Spiritually guided life force energy". I was not allowed to watch any sessions, but was always intrigued. I love that you were trained in Reiki! Thanks for viewing my scantily populated site.

O.K., so I added it to the bottom of my about me page, but it didn't print as a link. I believe Kyle suggested that we make 'something else' a link at the bottom of the page, I'll have to review that one--but are you saying I should have them both as links?

Hey Laurie,
I think it's a great start. It definitely seems like a great niche with low competition. The next step is to start generating content consistently.

Your About Me page looks good - I know you asked about that in another post and I was away for the weekend so sorry I didn't get back to you on that. One suggestion on that, you have your contact info at the bottom, why not add your WA profile link (with affiliate link) to that? That can more traffic to your profile here.

Best Regards,
Jim

norland Premium
Thanks for looking at my contents so far. I'm not sure what you mean regarding adding my profile link. (what is my profile link, anyway?)--My WA affiliate link is the 'siterubix', right?-- But I'm not exactly following what you are suggesting that I do.

techhound Premium
Hey Laurie,
Up at the top right of your WA screen, you can see your profile pic with a down arrow. When you click on that down arrow you will see three choices, My Profile, Account Settings, Logout. Click on My Profile which takes you into your WA profile page.

Then, you will see and Affiliate Link button near the top. When you click on that it will give you a link that you can use in your About Me page. If your readers click on it, they will be brought to your profile page. It's just another method to get some extra traffic to WA and has the potential to increase sales.

Best Regards,
Jim

I thought I had already followed you. Sometimes when I intend to follow people I somehow forget to click the follow button. I think it's when I'm ready for bed and just tired. Do please look at my website. It only has the about me and privacy page so far, but just those two wiped me out by just much trial and error.

Your medical expertise IS your niche.Much of what I'm sure you take for granted due to so many years in the field, the average person is clueless about. However, that being said, the healthcare profession is a very broad niche so you would want to narrow it way down. Figure out what REALLY excites you about the profession and then how you can monetize it. I don't know much at all about the health care profession so I wouldn't be of much use to you as far as narrowing it down or monetization. So the general information I have given is all I have for you. I do know that the sky is the limit in your case. And the hardest thing you will face is how to narrow it down to a small enough niche.

Actually, the scam I spoke of began with a phone call, from persons describing themselves as 'nationwide lending'. They came across as very professional and believable; And, since "nationwide insurance", etc., is generally a nationally known and trusted company, I felt relatively secure with them. The situation quickly evolved to include the internet. I'd been dealing with them for quite a few months last year, when a family member tipped me off that they were being sued by the FTC, and had been accused of scamming people all over the U.S. and Canada out of more than 6 million dollars. Thank you, gtrtchr43, for connecting with me and for your kind suggestions. I agree with you on the WA experience.

Hi norland. Nice to meet you. I understand what you mean about scams on the internet I believe more than one of us have been subject to it, and it makes us feel a little bit untrustworthy. But WA is a good place with good people. I think your experience in the health industry would make a great niche. Or any of your other passions for that matter. Good luck choosing and getting started.

Hi, looks like we have something in common as I was a registered nurse for over 15 years myself. Sorry to hear how you got scammed, unfortunately it happens to a lot of people myself included. WA is a great place to learn as it takes you step by step. I already had a couple of websites prior to joining and still learned a lot. You will find the community is very helpful. With that being said if I can do anything for you please do not hesitate to ask. Rich
