About PattyMc
Joined February 2019
HI! I'm Patty. I'm new here and looking and hoping to find some wonderful people here to help guide me. I am totally new to working online like this. I have worked mostly running brick'n mortar businesses, but I've done my time in other areas, as well. A few years ago I remarried and reluctantly quit working to be home full time, which is driving me nutty. Among many other factors, I worry about my husband in the line of work he's in, for at our age, climbing and working on top of skyscrapers isn't very desirable. There is more to life than this. I have made up my mind I need to get a job that will cover his medical insurance for start (he's still a few years away from retirement), then the bills and groceries until he can find a local job to help towards that. But returning to the workforce has been frustrating, to say the least. So, I've turned my sights to online, seeing how other people have made it work, why can't I. To work from home successfully would be a dream come true, giving me a life that I can enjoy with my husband and a life that he and I can enjoy with our children and grandchildren.

Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
My first thought would be $500/week, however, I need to add enough to cover taxes, so I'll switch that amount to $1,000/week.
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
totally cool would be $10,000/month :)
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
as long as i can be home, as much as needed (well, within reason), as long as i have time to have my grandchildren come visit. :)

Wow. Your husband has one of those jobs that makes me queasy just thinking about. lol I predict you'll do well here. Everything you need to make a go of it is here on WA. Just takes consistent effort on your part and sounds like you're accustomed to that.

It's a great community of folks here that can and will answer about any question you might come up with. Best wishes for success.

lol yea, I'm with ya. I have to try hard not to pass my fear over to him. lol But I want him home with me where he belongs. :) And you're right, I am, I'm just finding myself growing impatient, when all my life I thought I was a super patient person. Maybe that changes with age. lol

I thank you so much for your wishes, and I do hope the same for you! :)

Hello Patty And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is going to 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 490+ 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.

Hello Patty,

Congratulations in giving WA a chance in your plans; you are in the right place and I have no doubt that you'll achieve your goals.

I recommend you to stick yourself to the training and learn all that you can on the webinars on Friday nights; or choose whatever you think is related to what you need to grow.

It is a lot of work (entertaining, I would say) ahead, and the rewards are for you, I hope, sooner than what you expect.

I wish you the best for you and your family.

Felix.

Made a start on my next article today and once in the zone that keyboard was on fire, I'm only into the intro at the moment. It's like Kyle says in one of his early videos, "If you find a passion and turn it into a niche, then the work doesn't seem like work".

This next article will be unboxing and revealing the contents of a new board game I've purchased, yet still haven't played. Do you mind me asking what is your niche idea, business plan etc. How far in are you Patty?

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.

Phil

Thank you, Phil!

I have no regrets about going premium, but I've come to a realization that NOW THE WORK BEGINS! lol

I followed thru with the tutorial as a starter and got my website up, however, I had some tweaking I wanted to do. I tried to do it on my own, had a couple of wins but mostly misses...lol So I started the tutorial over from the beginning and between that reminding me of some things and running some questions thru the search bar and getting past posts up pertaining, I am feeling accomplished atm! Tho the tweaks I made were minor, it was important to me to learn how to do them, and I honestly feel that those things I will remember better now. And I got a pretty neat new plugin to boot!

I did go to the help chat and quickly got a couple other questions answered, as well. I do love the community here being so quick to help and so supportive! Everyone here is a MAJOR factor that got me hooked!

It's feeling a little tuff getting rolling like I want to be, but I DO feel like it WILL happen! And the more I accomplish, I kinda fluff out my feathers a little more. lol

I really do appreciate your well wishes and encouragement! Thank you! And if you don't mind, I'd love to follow you and go on over and check out your profile. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I only joined less than two months ago and already have several posts on my Website that rank in the top 5 in the major search engines. That demonstrates the lessons do work when they are implemented as taught.

I strongly advise you to go through the lessons at a steady pace and do your HW immediately.

Success will be yours in a thriving online business before you know it!

All the best.
