About Picturebooks
Joined February 2014
To be perfectly honest, when it comes to technology I am rather challenged. Over a year ago I started a direct sales business selling beautiful children's books through an independent publisher. While I loved the books and was very passionate about sharing them I kept getting stuck when it came to online marketing. I got frustrated so easily with my business page on Facebook. I even tried to start a blog on Wordpress but could only get so far before I'd get overwhelmed, confused, and utterly lost. So now I'm hoping that with the knowledge and support from WA I can learn the skills I need to be successful selling children's books and also add another stream of income to my life.

I am very playful, compassionate, creative, and quirky. People fascinate me, and I am forever amazed by our unique strangeness and yet how much we have in common. I love my family, food, music, animals, wild places, gardens, books, film, quirky things, thrifting, and much more. I have lived through some very intense things, most recently cancer, and each has shaped me into the person I am today (yeah a little cliche but it's true).

Now I look forward to learning and growing as I finally gain the skills I need to successfully launch my current business (in a new location) and hopefully begin a new one with affiliate marketing. I know already that the process of finding my niche will be quite challenging for me because I have such wide and varied interests!

Hi thanks for following, I'm following you back. You have a terrific niche- children's books. I think you've found the missing piece at WA without needing high level tech knowledge to progress. I know I have. It was frustrating for me in the past, knowing what I wanted to do and trying to overcome not being tech savvy enough. Plus, I had no desire to become a highly technical person. I wanted to learn what I needed to learn to get the job done. I wish you much success. -Christine

Hi Carson, thanks for the warm welcome! So far I'm just following the lessons, but I imagine as I learn more I will have questions - I don't even know what I'd ask right now.

Best,

Hello Mia, nice to meet you! I just got a notification that you just signed up for your free starter membership. Hey, congrats! You're in the right direction now. That's for sure.

I just wanted to recommend a thing or two so you can get maximum benefits. You're gong to want to set up and complete your profile meaning you want to upload an image & about me description...

This just lets the system know you are a real person, and that way you can get all the help and support you need and get going! To do that, you can click this link:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling/

Glad you are here, Mia. Remember....

I'm here to help :)
