About Palatia
Joined June 2019
I'm mother of 3 grown children and have 5 grandchildren. I'm working in customer service for health insurance and found my first niche. I'll work with that for a while and then see what's next...

My background is in accounting in my early career but I quickly got bored so went into real estate as a broker. I loved it but 7 days a week burnt me out after 7 years. Before and while I was in real estate, I fell in love with the internet (mid 1990's). I wanted to know how it worked so I started building websites from scratch using HTML and tried to make them search engine friendly (for that time). Learning how things worked took massive amounts of time. Not like all the information and training we have here. Of course, it seems things are much different now too.

Then I floundered for a while and worked in sales for my father's company for about 10 years.I did achieve my Bachelor's in 2008 in Business and Marketing during this time. I love learning so this business model will be awesome for me.

Later I went into health insurance customer service and membership. I'm still in that field. I don't mind it but I felt like 'this is all there is', until I found this program in the last week.

I'm very excited about this opportunity!

Howdy Palatia. Great to meet you. I appreciate the follow and I've returned the favor.

I did the same thing as you in the mid-90s. I remember learning HTML from scratch on an Acer desktop computer that had a whopping 8MB hard drive and 100MB RAM with Windows 95 and a 28 baud dial-up modem. That was the first computer I ever had. Mostly, I was building fan sites for Southern Gospel groups on a site called GeoCities (long since defunct). It definitely took a while, but, to me, it was fun. Those were the days! lol

See you around the community.

Onward to success!!

haha.. I remember Geocities. :) Thank you.

I wish Geocities was still around.

Appreciate the follow and will reciprocate. wish you much success in reaching your online goals here. It is certainly easier today to make websites and do online marketing then it was back in the '90s. Still, #1 is to learn not only about how to find your niche and build a blog but to learn how to bring traffic to see what you write and sell.
Follow the training from the beginning and you will succeed based on your talents and ambition.

Thank you. :)

Thanks for the follow. Sounds like you've been playing with computers as long as I have. My first one was an Atari 800 and I thought it was the berries. It took twenty minutes to load a game of Pong from a cassette tape and you prayed it wouldn't error while loading forcing a start over.

We wrote a program in basic that interfaced with an LED light beam to use on racetracks to record elapsed times around the track. Printed out, that program was several inches thick.

Things have changed just a bit since then, eh?
Palatia Premium
haha.. yes.. We had pong when I was a teenager. My first computer was a Commodore 64. :D. Thanks for following me back.

Hello Paula And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Thanks so much for the follow! It sounds like we started down the same road with internet marketing back in the day. I used to enjoy coding websites via HTML.

But... I'm happy we don't have to do that anymore! lol

You seem to have a lot of great experience, and I bet you'll do very well with affiliate marketing. Like you, i LOVE learning, and there's always something new to learn with this.

Thanks for the note..! Yes. When I think back to all the hours spent coding HTML.. oh my gosh...lol. I hope I do well with affiliate marketing. That's the plan!

Hi Palatia. Im glad you connected. I am working on finishing my schooling for medical coding and billing. I enjoyed the first part of the class but now I am not so sure. Coding can be confusing and could of defintley had some peer and teacher help versus on your own. But I am almost finished.
Glad to meet you and Good Luck!!
Palatia Premium
That's great on the schooling! I work in health insurance and have learned a lot about medical codes but it's not the same as coding claims. Thanks for following!

Hello and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I believe that you have come to the best place for learning around. I love this place.

Here are my tips to help you get the most out of your investment.

1. Do the training and the tasks as you go. Don't make my mistake and be too eager and forget to continue on the right path.

2. I highly recommend that you not only work through the training but take the time to read through member blogs and updated training as this website is a minefield of hidden information.

3. There is a search bar at the top and if you ever have a question about a topic type one or two words into search and you will find lots of information.

4. If you don't find the answer, the community is a wonderful resource.
Everyone here is working on building their own online business and many are very successful.

5. Check out the live events. You will see all the previous training and this covers many topics outside of the Online Entrepreneur Certification and Affiliate Bootcamp training.

6. Last but not least. Never stop learning. The internet is always changing and members here are always providing updated information. Consider your membership fee an investment in your future rather than an expense. Learn, apply the lessons and given time and work you too can make money online.

Wishing you the very best.

Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.
If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).
Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

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! :)

Hey Paula and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

This is Steve (and Amanda!) from IveTriedThat!

You signed up through me and I just wanted to share a little more to get to know you better. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 10 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. Amanda had quit her job to start working alongside me as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Paula, just let me know!



PS. Once you setup your profile, hit reply below and introduce yourself!
