Coming soon! Work in progress. :D)

(April 11, 2019)...Still a "work in progress", however, it has been approximately 5 days since I have joined Wealthy Affiliates and I now feel more comfortable expanding my bio information. I wanted to first gain some knowledge about the WA site, the training that was provided, not provided, discover the rules, choose a WordPress Them, and decide how I wanted to proceed.

When it comes to Affiliate Programs, Internet Marketing, I have studied this for many years but never took the plunge. Hindsight is 20/20. (Meaning, I should have begun this years ago while I had some sort of steady income to support the basic survival life requires).

I used to work for other companies, making them fortunes while I made a salary of $135K each year (As a business consultant, project director, and professional trainer).

Life events soon caught up with me. In 2008, when the US Housing Market crashed, many people lost everything...including myself. I had to start over. It was a very humbling experience. I used to be the one standing behind someone in a grocery check-out line, noticed that the person in front of me didn't have enough money to pay for everything...I would quietly tell the cashier to put it on my bill and paid their grocery bill. But now, I am no longer able to help others financially. I can barely help myself.

Life events continued:

My own health began to deteriorate.

I had to quit working and move in with my adopted mother 3.5 years ago as she had Alzheimers and Dementia. We lived off of my savings; which has dwindled significantly. She passed away one year ago on April 7th, and today, April 11th, 2018 (one year ago) was buried.

I am familiar with many languages and cultures and I have lived abroad. I have a Masters Degree in Multimedia Design & Technology and a post-graduate certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

Even though I am going through some very difficult personal and financial hardships at the moment, I try to remain positive and I still enjoy helping others.

I continue to work daily (sleeping perhaps 4-6 hours) on WA, writing content for my website, continuing the training, taking notes, conducting my own research when more ideas pop into my mind, etc.

My goal in life is to "Make the world a better place" and my belief is "It is NEVER too late to become what you might have been" (Author unknown).

I wish anyone who reads this many blessings, love and light...and everything good this world has to share!

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! :)

Hello Pamela And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always 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.

Hey Pamela and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 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. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business 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 Pamela, just let me know!



PS. Once you setup your profile, reply to this message and I'll send you my 10 Hottest Business Ideas for 2017. They'll really help you get moving quickly here!
