Feisty 74yo female entrepreneur getting back on the horse after the disaster of the Global Financial Crisis; lost a AUS1.5million plus waterfront home on an island and two vehicles; lived in my car for almost a year. Wrote a book and started making craft items to keep busy knowing that one day I would be in a position to be able to sell them through an internet business. Finally got a house and six months later a tornado ripped through and destroyed it and once again ended up living in my car for a short time. Just as well the Merc is comfortable to sleep in. Finally got a lovely government house, got my office set up; the book was becoming a website and the arts and crafts another website and health and beauty the current website. Studying for a private pilot license and a ministry degree and researching many other options. Entrepreneurs always have ideas and my head is just full of them - I was once told that I was a good ideas person - and the opportunities to get ahead are usually the ones we do not see when we are under duress. The house situation did not last long as the powers that be decided that as a single woman I was not entitled to a house so ended up in an unfinished flat with no running water, no kitchen facilities, cooking on a gas camping stove until a friend in another state suggested that I move interstate as he had a 4 bedroom house. So, I moved and now have a bedroom for sleep in, another room to house my office the luxury of having a full kitchen to cook in and a lovely garden to play in. I have now been here for 17 months and have registered five (5) companies, am working as a consultant for a company in Sydney who has three (3) business entities which I am doing the advertising and marketing for and still exploring other avenues to get back to being financially secure. Wealthy Affiliate was the first avenue and seems to be much easier that raising 7 children as a single mother. I can't complain as they all have their own business and are doing well except that they have abandoned me but that is okay -gives me more time to concentrate on me and my future. My future now encompasses Wealthy Affiliate, drop shipping, two MLM business entities and marketing Mortgage Reduction Strategies, Energy Solutions and Private Development Funding along with making video clips for clients and doing Webinars so I am kept pretty busy but enjoying the challenge.
y newest challenge is that my friend has found someone online that he now wants to pursue a relationship with so once again I am looking for a property to move into. Seems there is never a dull moment but at least I have my health, pets and my garden albeit in pots..

Thank you - I don't let people tell me they have "problems". We have issues or challenges. Our brain is similar to a computer - junk in - junk out and if we use the word problem then our brain decides there is nothing to be done - IF however we use other words like issues or challenges the brain will search for any method to go over it, around it, under it or even through the middle of it. nine times out of ten there is an answer out there - we just have to find it and activate it In my case losing a million dollar house, (which the bank onsold for half its value)two expensive vehicles and having nowhere to sleep but in my car I turned my mind to looking at the talents and gifts I possessed and worked on those rather than the opposite. Forever the optimist and there is so much out there that can be accessed by the individual and I have found that when one is down is when to most opportunities spring up and if we are wallowing in self pity instead of looking at the current situation we will miss so much - just my opinion of course

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals Carol!

Hey Carol,

I'm dropping in to see how you're doing.

I hope you're enjoying your first week and getting familiar with the way everything works. I see you got your profile set up. This will really help you to connect with everyone.

One of the things that struck me when I first arrived was the support of the community.

The support here is priceless! People here are not only willing to help you but they are actually eager to help you. Many of the members started out just like you and me. Take advantage and connect with as many members as you can. Everyone has something to offer.

You might find it a little challenging at first but believe it or not the first month will be the most difficult for you. After that you should really start to feel confident and begin moving along at a nice pace.

I wish you all the best and if you need anything at all please call on me. Some of the most difficult things to work through end up having the simplest solutions.

I'm here to help if you need me.

HI Wayne,
Had a few challenges to deal with over the last few days which has frustrated my efforts to be at my computer all day however I now have two .com domains and am ready to tackle the job of building the websites - NOW that is going to be interesting.

Hi Carol,

That is truly going to be interesting. I was so excited when I joined Wealthy Affiliate that I purchased more then 10 ten .com domains.

Here I am 20 months later and there is only one that I work on.

Be careful, working on more then one website at a time could possibly slow your progress to make money.

How ever, this does not apply to everyone. Some people can put forth the effort to build multiple sites at once but that didn't work for me.

You're definitely going to have your challenges to work through. What works for me is sticking to the training and working through one thing at a time.

Building an online business is a process, not an event. If you need help with anything please feel free to give me a shout out. I'm here for you!

Some times what seems to be the most difficult things to work through ends up having the simplest solutions.

Blessings to you!

Hi Wayne - the only reason I have two .com domains is that you recommended that we get our name registered so that is what I did - whether I use it or not is yet to be determined but at the moment I am concentrating on www.possumlaneproducts.com as I can put a number of links and things on that one website and people can be directed to whatever product that interests them - just my thinking.
As I mentioned in my profile I lost everything and ended up living in my car for many many months so I wrote a book; started knitting, crocheting and making items that I could eventually sell on EBay which now of course I can sell on my own website, plus I can do drop shipping, and as I am involved with a few other industries I can add them as well as being an affiliate with Amazon etc. Being an entrepreneur my mind is full of ideas - does my philosphy make sense?

Hi and thank you -My purpose is to set up multiple streams of income as that was what I was teaching before the disaster of the GFC.
I am having trouble getting decent photos to put on my website - bought a new Samsung Smart phone at Xmas as opposed to a camera but trying to upload the photos is proving a challenge - also getting really good snaps BUT I will persevere
