About Patricia R
Joined March 2013
I have been exploring ways to earn more income. I am from Maine but due to some twist of fate, had lived in Florida for 13 years. My family consists of four adult children, their spouses, children and a partner (gentleman friend).

Fortunately for me I have not been involved with any scam sites. I did my homework and ended up here. Now my hope is that I can make it work.

I have just renovated an 1855 home on an island off the coast of Maine. It was in terrible shape and many people said that it could not be done. I am proud of the job I did there. I rented it out last summer (2012) and again this year. The house is very livable and higher end for where it is. www.House-on-the-Hill.me is the story of the process. The blog is now closed as I have sold the house in Maine and am now building and finding that building from scratch is more expensive than I thought it would be.

I have looked at job skills required for a VA and find that many of them require this type of experience and a long time commitment.

I have a Real Estate license and also a Property Management Certification in Florida.

Hey Patricia, thanks for the follow. I spent an hour on your website. I plan to spend more! What beautiful flowing manner you have in your writing style. I got caught up with the guru's before joining WA. I could have saved a lot of time and money if I would have found your site first. Wow, WA's got talent and your one of them. Later, Dave

Okay Patricia...it's now official. You are my latest WA hero. I just looked at your dynamicwebsitemarketing.com site...I am so impressed...don't worry, I'm not a stalker...impressed is not the same as obsessed. (LOL) Although, I do have an obsession with helping people succeed and prosper. I am in your corner. Let me know how I can help.

Hi, Patricia! Thanks for the follow. My girl friend, from childhood---also named Patricia---inherited a house on Bailey Island in Maine. We used to have so much fun there every summer. Maine is lovely---except for all those little black snakes. I now live on an island that, so far, doesn't have any serpents. How are you doing on the 30 day challenge?

Hey Patricia and Everyone -
I just launched my first website. I built it at GoDaddy, but I'll transfer the hosting to WA when I figure out how. I decided to concentrate on my passion for cats, and narrowed it down to health care (as I'm a nurse), looked for keywords on Jaaxy, settled on deworming cats, then looked for product to promote on Amazon. Wrote a bunch of copy (my first), then set up an Amazon store that appears on my website. If you use the framed version of their script, it embeds the store right in your website, along with a shopping cart. The customer is taken to amazon to complete their purchase. My website is www.dewormingcats.com. Please review and comment, please!

I mis-typed the website name - it is www.dewormingcat.com. No "s" on cat.

Is it true the Maine has lots of woods? I remember being in Maine in my dreams..yes, my physical dreams when asleep! Also, what do you think of the real estate market these days? I'm just curious. Thank for following me!
Reply
Patricia R Premium
Hi smilley, Yes we do have quite a few thousands of acres of woods, smaller towns and 1,000 miles of rugged coastline. It is beautiful to me. A bit like taking this class, not for everyone.

Real estate market is picking up at least in Maine and Florida. However the banks have been holding foreclosures back which they will be putting on the market soon.

smilley Premium
That's interesting! When you say it is not for everyone, do you imply that it is not meant for those who aren't persistent with the program?
Reply
Patricia R Premium
Oh, you read it. Thank you. As with any "job" what we do here might not be liked by everyone. Actually, it is not going to work for those "get rich quick" people. Also, you are right, no persistence, you are in the wrong place. I am in the process of switching the site around. I got caught in the "wheels within wheels" trap, I have a little program (Mac) called MindNode and diagramed the site and future posts. Now everything makes more sense to me.
Reply
Patricia R Premium
No. WA is not for people who think they can get rich quick or without a lot hard work. It is possible to get rich quick. It is called a lottery.:)

Hi Patricia, Greetings from Cyprus, and thanks for the follow, property renovation was a part of my joinery business in the UK, as you can emagine the old thatch cottages in the New Forest where I used to live, supprising what you find behind lath and plaster walls. It looks like we will be learning togethere.

I've been internet marketing since 2005 but in this industry you can never stop learning as it is constantly changing. I've found WA invaluable for keeping up to date with things and I'm always learning something new. Good luck with your future plans and if you need any help the live chat is the best place to get instant answers or I'm happy to offer any help I can.

Thank you for the wise words. Just what I needed to hear right now. I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed with information. I WILL get it sorted. I have been a member just over a week which I must keep remembering.

mama2karsten Premium
Remember... Most of us started at the same place here... the beginning is a bit overwhelming... the good news is, once you get a few of the important basics as your foundation... you'll be off and running. If you need help at any time... just post it here in your space, live chat or private message your followers. We are all happy to help.

Hi Patricia, anyone with the vision and the persistence to renovate an old house when others said it couldn't be done, will go far in IM (internet marketing).
All the best,

I certainly have a lot to learn here. Just a bit out of my element. However, this is the third house I have done and I do have a blog about the process. Since I already have a blog, I am trying to figure out if I can make it bring in income.

Hello, Patricia! I'm a South Floridian :) I'm also looking for a great way to make money as I move toward early retirement from teaching. By the way, I think it would be so cool to renovate an old house like you've done. Kudos for doing what others said couldn't be done! My dream is to one day buy and renovate one of the quaint old Victorian houses in the historic district of Savannah, GA -- perhaps, converting it to a B&B.

Thanks for the follow and here's wishing us both the best of luck with our WA goals!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
