About Parkavehelen
Joined March 2019
Hi, I'm Helen. I'm 68 years of age. I live in Northern Utah. I have been trying and trying to find a legitimate way of making an income at home from the Internet. So far, all of my efforts have been for naught. I keep paying money out and have none coming in. To me, there is something very wrong with that picture.
My husband is 10 years my senior. He is a retired army officer. Because of his retirement pay and his disability benefits we live pretty comfortably. The thing that worries me most is if he should die before I do. We do not have any life insurance and most of our income will come to an end if Dan goes first. I must find a way of supplementing his income so I don't lose our home and the life style we are now used to.
This will be my last try as I can't afford to try anything else.
Please let it be known that I am not afraid to do the work required to make money. I DO NOT expect anything to be just handed to me.
I am a 50% disabled veteran of both the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army and my husband is a 100% disabled veteran of the U.S. Army.
I am also suffering from the incurable disease Gastroparesis for the past 3 years. I am sick in my stomach most of the time and am therefore bedridden most of the time. In Oct. 2018 I had 70 percent of my stomach removed to try and make me feel better. It worked for 4 1/2 months, but now, Mid March 2019, I am getting very sick again and I'm back in bed.
I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can here and meeting as many of you as possible.

Howya, thanks for th follow. Just reading your profile. Fair play to ya, 68 and still striving. If I can help out with anything I'll certainly do my best for you. Don't be shy about giving me a shout and if I can help I will. Am still learning the ropes myself here, but like you I'm here out of necessity, but putting the time in to start, and the small membership fee for as long as necessary, I'm sure it's bound to pay dividends.

I'm thinking of it as investing in myself by getting some education and then taking action on those lessons.

Sure anyway, long story short, best of luck to you, we'll chat soon maybe, all th best, N.

Hello, Helen and thank you both for your service! We have the deepest respect for veterans (both our dads were vets. US Army and RAF respectively).
We need to make online income in our retirement as well so WA is the perfect platform for us to do just that.
It won't happen overnight, we know that, but we are working hard and will stick with the long term goals.
We are in our 60's as well.
Just take your time with the training and go over it again and again if needed.
You will also find great community support here so never be afraid to ask questions.
We are with you on the journey, Helen.

Hey Helen and thanks for the follow. I know what you mean because I am totally disabled through the Army myself. Everything will work out. Just follow the training step by step and if you have any problems, let me or someone else know. I put out info that I said to find a niche, try to research the niche on Google Trends and make sure your niche you like has 12 months to 5-year upward trend on the graph or at least says steady for this period of time. Then go to your facebook and put in your niche on the search bar and click Pages and join at least FB groups with at least 5K followers then you know that's a great niche to be in.

Take care,
parkavehelen Premium

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

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

Have a great day.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Hi Helen!

Thank you for the follow! It sounds like you are motivated to succeed and willing to do what it takes to get there. It can be overwhelming at first because Wealthy Affiliate offers SO MUCH training, but if you stick to the "Online Entrepreneur Training", practice the lessons that Kyle gives you, and ask questions when you get stuck, you'll start making progress before you know it.

Here's to your success!

Hi Helen, 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
parkavehelen Premium
Hi Mike, I already sent you a message before I signed up earlier this morning. It's all because of you that I decided to go for it!

You bring me the bull and I'll take the horns! LOL

I already chose the Premium membership because I thought that would be the best way to go.

I'm on my way to introduce myself on Chat now, but I would be honored to have your help during this new journey!

Thanks very much Mike,

Hi Helen, I read your comment on my site and I am sorry to hear of your experience with SAS
The problem I find with programs like SAS is for one the price tag of $1000 which is high. Secondly the costs are really unknown given their marketing techniques they use, you can really get into some financial difficulty if you stay the course.

With programs like WA that focus on content marketing it's more of a sweat equity type of deal where the more content you produce the more exposure. As you produce content you leverage social media by sharing your content on various platforms with a simple click of a button using a free plugin which is easily installed on your website. What you have paid here at WA is really all you need to make an income.
The only other paid tool I have used has been a autoresponder service for email marketing but that's not something I recommend until you are well into making income.
Every service I use is "free" so please don't buy anything, you have all you need.
Stick to the training Helen and just focus on the content creation which I am here to help with if you need me. I am here to help with anything you need and you have a huge community with tons of experience that are more than eager to help. There are lots of great tools at WA included in your membership but your most useful is the keyword tool and the community combined knowledge.
Don't hesitate to reach out when needed or just to give me an update on how you are doing now and again so I know you are heading in the right direction. I can critique any content or your website structure for you when needed. I hope you have a wonderful experience here at WA that will replace the not so nice one you are leaving behind at SAS, have a great day Mike.
