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..

Hi carol! You said to reach out to you, and I appreciate your assistance. My biggest struggle has been finding people willing to become team members with me. I am hoping building online will help me find people excited to become team members. Will WA help me walk through this? Can you help me with how you did this with Direct sales? Thanks for your help.

Hi Carol, I was absolutely blown away reading your profile. You are an amazing lady, with so much courage and drive. I can relate to some of your experiences and I never regret a single moment of any of the things life throws my way. It builds character and makes us stronger and more determined. Hope to see you around the place.Cass

HI Cass, We women are stronger than we think - after all we give birth, raise our kids, run a home, usually work a full time job outside the home so really I am no different to a thousand other women. Fortunately I left a lot out of my profile because my job is to encourage and uplift people and that is what I like to do. Whereabouts are you in New Zealand. My daughter-in-lay is from Nelson and that is a simply beautiful part of the world. I have been trying to get back to NZ since my son married but maybe next year.

I am in Whanganui, but my daughter and her family are in Nelson (Brightwater). They love it there it is beautiful. I agree with you, women are often underestimated:)

Am not sure where that is because the wedding was a long time ago now and the eldest grandchild of that union is in his 20's. They got married at Richmond and the day was so hot and of course I heard that is was always cold in NZ so had no summer clothes and the windows of the church were stained glass and could not be opened and my youngest son passed out with the heat - it was certainly and experience but I want to go white water rafting down down in the South - Maybe next year when I am finally settled in a place of my own and can travel when I want to. Right now I am sharing with a friend and it is not working out but that is okay - I am a survivor.
Stay in touch = even if it is by PM (private e-mail) at the top of your profile page

Hello Carol. I'm new to WA and am overwhelmed with everything I've experienced and feel a little insecure. Would you be willing to be my mentor.....or if you don't have the time, can you suggest someone else. I am a good student and will be diligent to do what I am told and efficiently. I don't want to waste time by trial and error. Can you help me?

Like you I am a believer and have written a book entitled "The Rapture Effect",

More than happy to help you but I do not know everything but what I know I will share with you and if you write me privately we can cover a lot more that here on the open forum. There are many ministers and pastors on this platform so I think we are in the season of falling away

My mother would not agree with you - she always complained that I was stubborn and self willed but obviously those traits served me well while raising a large family who all have their own businesses and the grandchildren all go to private Christian schools. All the children were christian raised and two have gone through Bible College so I feel that I put them on the right path to live good decent and productive lives and if that is my only claim to fame I will take it. Glad you got your domain sorted and I am following you back. Thank you for your kind comments

I was on my own with 2 teen-aged kids for a few years. Worked 2 jobs and thought I was going to end up on the streets a few times. I made it though (with a little help from my brother). Got remarried and had a daughter with husband #2.
I was actually wondering about the drop shipping. My husband keeps mentioning it and I've looked into it, but everything I find either makes you pay close to regular price on purchases (then expect you to sell way over market value), or they take a lot of money to get into, and/or you need a lot of cash flow to keep it going. That's something I don't have a lot of right now (my employer cut me from 5 days to 2 per week). Any info would be very much appreciated!
Thanks,

The guy asked for Affiliate programs to promote products, and as to my memory that company was mentioned in the earlier parts of the training along with Amazon to affiliate with not to learn how to become an affiliate but promote products like shoes and clothes and stuff for commission from sales....
Unless I am the one misunderstanding and Shopify is an Affiliate Training platform as well...!!
Reply
possumlane Premium
One can have affiliates on their shopify platform. Unfortunately a lot of people go to Shopify to set up an online business and do not get sufficient help and end up selling their sites which are prolific through Exchange and even Gumtree. The other thing with Shopify is that you can only promote one website for US$29 - if you want another one it costs another US$29 and I have come across so many disgruntled people from there that it is really sad so I would not be promoting shopify to anyone here especially if there are new. They do not get the training or support that people on this platform get.
Reply
Dygie-Reds Premium
I do not deal with Shopify either myself but I found out that they are a blogging site as well which would conflict with WA. That part I did not know. So let's just forget that I even mention it, I thought it was only consumer products they market.

Hey that's okay - we are all learning here. I have had bad experiences with Shopify and I would hate anyone else to waste their time and money trying to work with them. We are all good

Your story is impressive. As a pilot myself, I can tell you that not only will you not regret getting your license, but there is nothing in this life, that I am aware of, that compares to it. I have been a licensed pilot for 33 years and most of my best memories are from flying adventures, which I've had quite a few of. If you need any help with flying let me know. Spoiler: you must "fly that wing" Airplanes have many different things, but they ALL have wings. Learn to fly that wing and you're golden.

Hi. Carol.
Paul here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

I enjoyed reading your profile. Unfortunately the 'Crisis' caught many off guard and many have still not been able to get back on track.

I am totally inspired by what you have been through and even more so with your determination to build back your financial resilience.

I am pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here.

Shine Brilliant, Carol.

Onward and upward.

Kindest regards from Canada.

Thank you Paul - I realised that if it is to be 'IT IS UP TO ME' - everyone wants to lend you money when you have plenty but when you have none no one wants to know you - sometimes not even your own family. In the end who we are and what we become is a decision only we can make for ourselves.
Thank you for your kind words and I am always here if you need any help and it is in my power to give you that help

Hehe, it's a small world!
I actually grew up down near Margaret River - before it got all touristy and over-priced - but I've mostly lived around Freo as an adult, I love it! I was in the Navy, based at Garden Island (HMAS Stirling) back in the early 90's.
I'm currently living with my dear Mum due to my circumstances, but I'm now on the path to turn all that around! We are on Sewell Street, a stone's throw from the Tradewinds Hotel, nor far at all from Windsor road!
Cheers, Tim.

possumlane Premium
Tradewinds Hotel? was that the old Plympton site? Is the Church of England still there - St. Peters and the huge Catholic church?
There also used to be a hospital in Moss Street, St. Helens, but I guess that is not there anymore either - I have a lot to catch up on when I get back there - hopefully before Christmass

Yes, Tradewinds was the old Plympton Hotel. The Catholic Church is still there, not sure about the Church of England or the hospital, I didn't grow up around here so I don't know much of the history!

Hello Carol, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your other online experience you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM 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.

Hi Carol

As a very valued member of my Wealthy Affiliate Network, & whose blogs and contributions I enjoy reading, I have updated my own blog today with a new review post, which, if you have no objections am sharing it

https://davehayes.co/yn2y

You may well have read my blog before, but, in case you haven’t, let me direct you as to the best way to use it, so that you can navigate around if you wish to.

On the top bar, you will see a resources tab. Click on this and it will explain about a very proven traffic generation strategy, I have used for well over 10 years.

The tabs under the resources page, are tried, tested and proven resources which again I have used over the period of the last 8 or 9 years very effectively.

On the RIGHT HAND Sidebar, you will see the word Categories. Click Select a Category and from the drop down list, you will see a variety of social media categories predominantly. Which contain some very useful information, that you may not know.

I like to keep things seperate, for ease of reference

If you would like to comment, feel free and equally, please feel free to send me your latest blog updates, so I can do likewise

I have found, since being here, that by reading others profiles and blogs, that some great ideas, tips and hacks have been discovered, you might feel the same way

Anyway enough of my waffle ; ) , enjoy the latest review & thanks again for reading it

Dave :)

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I reached the top 100 here before I lost the house that I was living in and between trying to find somewhere else to live and trying to finish writing my book and other miscellaneous adventures I have dropped to rank 665 so hopefully I will get back into a house shortly and be able to spend all my time in front of the computer. I am also trying to get my private pilots license and doing a couple of ministry courses and over the last couple of months I have read about 25 books - some penny dreadfuls but mostly reading about advertising, blogging, facebook, business and self improvement, and trying to help others so please stay in touch - I am a good motivator - I think

It doesn't pay to let your subscription lapse because you get all these letters congratulating you on going premium. I was in the top 100 until I hit a few hurdles but would love to follow you back.
Maybe you can tell me how to get a background picture on my website for Oasis Mastermind because there is nothing anywhere on the WA site that would help me promote my site. I have a great picture of Palm Trees but don't know how to get that as a background for the website so it is sitting in limbo at the moment.
One of my other sites, www.carolsnooks.com I am just starting to build and possumlaneproducts will be done in the new year. It is very hard to find someone to help with some issues. but Hey, thanks for the contact

Hey Carol, I would be happy to help you if I can. For the background issue, if I understood your question correctly, your image should be at a big size. Here is also a guide which show you how you can do it step by step:

Thanks Steve, I am happy - I joined in February and have worked hard to not only get my websites up and running but to reach the top 100. I have just taken on another project which will earn me an income much quicker that the current website which has not produced one sale yet. On checking the stats I have consistent hits on the site - over 300 for the past 3 months - somehow they are not converting and last time I checked I was number 1 on Google search engine so guess I have to come up with a different strategy to get more traffic to the site. Anyhow thanks for the comments - highly appreciated

Hi there,

I am a premium member now for nearly a year and I don't regret it! If you really want to reach your goals, you will!

Just go on with the courses, that's the best basis you can get.

Well I am ranked 5 I think on the front page of Google but Google analytics show a 97.50% bounce rate and people are only staying on the site for .08secs. When I check the stats here at WA I am getting hits - 195 this month so far - and there are a couple of unique hits but I do not know what that means. Have been told that I need to change the background colour of my pages so have downloaded a book on CSS but I really like the background colour and since it is mostly females that would be accessing the site I don't think the they would be put off by the colour. I am building sites 2 and 3 now but thank you for your interest

Good Mornng - thank you but I am no different to any other woman. Women can do awesome things, we are multi dexterous, we are strong and we are far more capable that the world has led us to believe. When a woman has children she becomes like the mother hen with her chicks. We have just been led by the world to believe that we are inferior and weak when in actual fact women are mentally strong whereas men as physically strong. That is why women are a compliment to a man - it is called balance and being Christian helps to overcome the world. If there is anything I can help you with I would be honoured to do so

possumlane Premium
Thanks Carl - I have definitely come through the University of hard knocks but not as bad as some and in every down side there is always an upside so I continue to look for the upside. My eldest son is very critical of me and once said -"you are always aiming for the stars Mum" to which my response was that I would rather aim for the stars and if I only reach the moon then I am still going to be a lot further along life's path than if I just aimed at the moon. The bigger the goal the more effort is required and the rewards are commensurate with that effort. It will be interesting to see what response my book gets - I wrote it while living in the car as well as knitting and crocheting items to sell on my possumlane.com dropshipping site when it is finished. Parts of that book will be appearing on my oasismastermind.com site but I seem to spend most of my time here helping others and I don't mind that as that what living is all about - helping others- thanks for your kind comments and I look forward to being of assistance as you progress through your journey

You are welcome and thank you Gary - I have started another book which is partly an autobio and I hope it will make people laugh. I think a lot of people do not have enough faith in their own talents and abilities and so often do not dig down far to realise their potential. We are all born with different gifts and how we utilise those gifts is a measure of what and how our life is,or could be. I don't see "Problems" - I do not even use the word,. I only see issues or challenges and overcoming a challenge or an issue is gratifying.

The other one will be released through here on my Oasis Mastermind Site - I need to pass on as much as is in my head to help the next generation. Although my kids have abandoned me they all have their own businesses and the second son is a multi millionaire so I think I must have done something right - raising a large family as a single mother is not always easy and my faith and determination must have rubbed off at some stage. All the kids are Christian, two are qualified Pastors and of course with their substantial incomes all the grandkids go to private Christian Schools so I think there must be something in my brain that could hep others and save them a lot of unnecessary headaches

You have it - you just have to dig into yourself - it is there and you can do this. You have to have confidence in YOU and understand that we all have it - it is just that some people want to sit back and let other do things for them instead of using the brain and knowledge that God gives us. We all have talents and gifts and we need to utilise them - I have a saying USE IT OR LOSE IT. My brain is no different to yours - we are have the same brain makeup - we must learn how to tap into that computer full of knowledge, drag it out look at it and utilise it to our advantage and SUCCEED

I have a few ideas:

Children's Classic Literature
Back pain sufferers
So far, I'm drawn to the new Mum stuff the most. No one ever gives new Mums somewhere or something special that's just for them. They're supposed to be happy with the screaming and pooping pile of flesh they just pushed out....
I felt extremely lost when I first became a Mum, all those years ago.

I want to create a safe haven for these women. Somewhere they can come to vent how they're feeling. New mothers feel like they're supposed to feel blessed and totally on top of things. Most don't. They feel tired, confused, maybe a little resentful and completely out of their depth.
I want to bust through that "cone of silence" crap that no one tells you about.
Yep.
This is my niche.

Muntek Premium
Hi Carol,
i wonder what niche should i chose, i am a new here and i would know what niche i should chose and how do i promote it?
Reply
possumlane Premium
What are you passionate about - soccer, art, skiing, sailing, reading,video games - what is YOUR passion. You have to choose something that you are really passionate about so that you will never run out of things to say or write about. If you choose wisely it will keep you interested and always looking for answer to questions that seem to pop up, things that you had not thought of - sends you off seeking the answer. I do not know where you live or what interests you - we are all different. I am fortunate that I an an entrepreneur and worked in many industries so have a good understanding of a lot of things but I chose health and beauty after I became involved in the new Stem Cell technology being used in the beauty industry. We know that it works in the medical field but now launching into an industry that interests me well that became my first site. My second site is going to be dedicated to showing people how to go from broke to financially secure in 3-5 years using a proven method - hence my Oasis site - the third site - possumlane - will be dedicated to drop shipping and selling my own arts and crafts items and the 4th Carolsnooks.com is being set up to target different avenues and point them to my other websites so it is really a matter for you to decide what it is that YOU want to do and promote. Bear in mind that once you have your "NICHE" and have your website set up you will probably earn a bigger income from affiliates that you have on your site. I am never very far away from the computer so if I can help any further just let me know

Why thank you sir - I am certainly not normal lol - my second daughter calls me an eccentric fruit bat but that's okay - I can live with that. I am sure she arrived at that description because I fell of my grandsons(her eldest son) skateboard and was often seen hanging upside down on bars in the park with the grandkids - I simply refuse to grow up however the body is starting to object to some of my antics so it will be interesting what the kids have to say when I finally get my pilots licence and start flying around the country instead of driving although I do like driving the Merc - love all that V8 power under me
You will certainly enjoy being here at WA - it is a great community and I don't know of another organisation that is as helpful to one another as this one is and with people from all countries and all walks of life

Thank you for your response - I can show you a couple of things in the States that you might want to look into that could help you along the way and it takes very little to get into. I have worked in and out of the States and Lived in Bellingham WA for a time and loved it. My youngest son was educated in the States and he is now married and has his own business in Colorado. My brother lived in Minnesota before his death in 1996 and his children are still there I believe.

HI Desmond - thank you for your response - I am on Linkedin myself and trying like mad to get back to a financial position. There are so many opportunities out there and it is usually when your back is to the wall that these opportunities are missed. We are so worried about the next rent or mortgage payment or the Electricity of phone bill that we are focused on the immediate not the future and one always has to keep an open mind and LOOK for the opportunities - they are there. I wrote a book while living in the car and that is the focus of my next website - oasismastermindclub - and the book is going to be titled "Someday Isle" (I'll) because people are always saying I'll do this,or someday I'll do that. Anyway when the book gets publilshed I want to go on a talking tour , talking to women especially because they are usually the ones handling the finances in a marriage.
I was In Indonesia a couple of years ago, supposedly to meet a UN official to transfer funds for a client but my luggage missed the connection in Hong Kong and I got stuck in the resort without my briefcase or clothes so missed the meeting.
Would like to join Rotary or Lions but it appears to be a closed entity.
Would love to stay in touch and thank you for asking

HI Lyn,
Listen when you are complaining - you will be amazed at what comes out of our mouths - if we listen we will know what we have to do to change circumstances. - I still complain about things and then I realise that the solution is in my hands - no one else can help our mindset - we first have to change that before we can change anything else. I am a born again Christian and I am constantly amazed at why people are dying when professing to be a Christian when the answer is right under their noses - their mouth. Everything we do and every success or failure we get comes from out of our mouth - talk healing, believe healing and you will be healed - talk success, believe success and the mind will achieve success. People need to realise that whatever the brain can concieve the mind can achieve. I never let anyone say they have a problem - We have issues or challenges. If we say we have a problem our brain, which is like a computer, registers that and does not seek a solution HOWEVER if we say we have a challenge or an issue the brain will look for anyway to solve it and you will find that you will go over it, around it, under it or even through it - the brain is a marvellous computer. While living in the car I wrote a book which is my next website - oasismastermindclub - and hopefully it will help a lot of people who do not believe they can succeed, to show that they can.
Sorry for the long response but I like to make sure that people are aware that they can achieve whatever they want - they just have to want to do so.
If there is anything I can do to help please feel free to contact me at any time and I would be honoured to assist in any way I can

I will have to send you a preview of the second book I am writing - you will certainly have a laugh - it is all about my adventurous travels around the world.
Everything from having a gun pulled on me at the Beijing International Airport by a guard, to losing my credit card in the ATM in Hong Kong and having no cash money on me, nearly being mugged in New York, being robbed in London and my adventures in Bermuda to name but a few. All funny experiences.

You are welcome - lovely to meet you - my youngest daughter was born in the back of the car while I was driving from Sydney to Perth and my eldest son wanted to call her Angelique - she became Vanessa but I love the name Angelique. We will definitely touch base over the coming weeks and months as you grow

Hi, I have just read your bio. I hail from Kenya in East Africa. We are still developing even internet connection is still costly. I am new at WA. I have not been able to get help when I commented that my website is not in search engines after posting it more than 3 days ago. I activated the SEO correctly. My url is www.specialcarsandbatteries.siterubix.com . It couldn't use google search console due to technicalities. Kindly help.

Hi and good morning. I have a friend on the other side of Austalia in Perth and he is from South Africa so I will ring him later today and see what, if anything, can be done to help you. my personal e-mail is manyotheroptions@gmail.com - you can contact me outside of WA if you like and I will see what else I can do to help you. I an an entrepreneur and there are lots of other ways to make money in the interim. One thing I would look at is to purchase your own domain - Go Daddy has them quite cheaply at the moment - I paid about AUS$14 for all of mine.
I have Bible Study this morning and then a luncheon so please be patient and I will get back to you ASAP,
God Bless

Hey you are in my home State - I am a sandgroper too - was born and raised in East Fremantle. Have just been organsing a trip back to the WEst to see an aging aunt before she passes on. I haven't been home for over 20 years so I guess I will see a big difference. Where are you from - Bunbury/Busselton or further south?
What can I do to help- if you want my private e-mail addy I am happy to give it to you -
in the meantime you can have a look at my website http://anti-ageing-phenomen.com - you will note that I have done no work since the 4th April - every time I get on here someone needs help and I spend more time trying to help others than working on my site but that is about to change now that I am almost in the top 100

From Bunbury. Been here for 20yrs with my plumbing business .
Things are a tad quite in the building industry so I was just surfing to find out about Internet businesses and came across wa.
I do have a question .
I'm not too sure about a niche , I have been plumbing for 30 yrs so I thought about 'plumbing tools online ' I have done a bit of research and there is a demand for them , well people searching anyway but then I'm thinking do I just concertrate on aus or everywhere ?
What are your thoughts ?
Thanks for your time. Martin

Martin I have some options I would like to alert you to which may give you some food for thought to you - can you give me your e-mail addy? - mine is manyotheroptions@gmail.com
Will be in and out for the next hour or so
Ah well do I remember Bunbury - As a teenager my boyfriend ( and subsequent first husband) and I and a car full of friends would head to Bunbury on a Sunday and arrive just in time for the happy hour - pubs were allowed to open on a Sunday between 12-1pm = buggerlugs would then have a sleep on the beach and return for the 5pm session and then I had to drive everyone home - I did not drink in those days

I Henry - Lovely to hear from you - where are you domiciled in Canada - am aiming to get to Nova Scotia one day. You would be amused ever more if I were to relate to you some of the experiences I have had around the world - even to having a gun pulled on me at the Beijing International airport at one stage - I thought it was funny at the time but my daughter was so upset - "are you not you scared travelling around the world by yourself" she asked. Maybe I should write another book about those experiences - they seem to get funnier by the year - my e-mail address is manyotheroptions@gmail.com if you would like to communicate with me through that medium

I have been to Vancouver - but only to catch a plane - spent 3 months in Bellingham WA. I house sat for a friend who was trying to get a Russian bride and at 75+ I though he was heading into trouble which he did of course because I heard that she tried to kill him once she arrived in the States. As for Canada - am trying to locate family who live in Alberta and am doing the ancestry thing to see how to find them I have a son in Colorado and my Nephews and niece are in Minnesota - my brother died in 1996 but his kids still live there.

Well it helps being a Christian - door seem to open just like that and I am constantly amazed
Reply
Genie3733 Premium
Don't consider myself a "christian" because I guard the established feast and festivals in the scripture and worship the true Creator, the El of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob but I don't wish to get into a debate about that here. I am a believer in the Messiah and a disciple of His which is what some people mean when they use the word "christian". So in that vein, I agree with you. There is wonderful guidance and support and open doors from the Almighty.
Reply
possumlane Premium
I agree with you - the term "Christian" only came about Jesus died on the Cross - people became Christ followers hence the word Christian and I am always amazed at how things just seem to work out when one puts their faith in the Messiah
How are you getting with your lessons? Anything I can help with just ask - I am still fairly new myself but having been in business and used to working with computers I still get things wrong lol
Reply
Genie3733 Premium
Thank you for asking. I am pretty frustrated at this point because nothing seems to be working right for me on the website. I wish I had someone beside me with some knowledge who could help me over these hurdles. There are some wonderful and well intention ed people here at WA but I don't have the background or the words to explain what I need to know. If someone just was here to see what I don't get it would make such a difference. I will have to pray for the right assistance to come my way from whatever source that may be. Divine knowledge and inspiration would be really cool right now.
Reply
possumlane Premium
What is it you having trouble with - maybe I can help as I have already built my website
Reply
Genie3733 Premium
I know there is a way to change the background color but I don't know how. Things are kind of jumbled and piled up and I don't know how to rearrange them. I just don't know enough about the sites to be able to fix things. I am stuck on lesson 6 of course two because I don't know how to complete the action steps. I am just going to start on the boot camp and work things out slowly if I have to do it that way.
Reply
possumlane Premium
I would not jump to the bootcamp - I would do all the lessons in sequence otherwise you are going to get more confused and give up - there is no rush - you have to get your foundation solid before you can build on it that is why the lessons take us through the way they do. I have built my website and am halfway through the third set of lessons and even I would not attempt to do the bootcamp course until I had mastered the lessons in the order to which they are presented. I am having to go back myself and re-check some things but maybe you are brighter than me - I just know that a solid foundation for anything will reap benefits in the long run and skipping things or circumventing the course will only get you into a bigger mess - my opinion only
Reply
Genie3733 Premium
Okay. That may well be good advice. Speaking of going back, how does one go back to previous lessons for review?
Reply
possumlane Premium
Just click on the Get Started button and go back to the lesson you want to re-do or alternatively at the top of the site you will find the ONLINE COURSES - click on that and a drop down menu will appear and you can choose where to go from there - just get back to me if you get stuck - I am here to help - It is almost 6am here so I will be in and out all day so will keep checking back to see how you are going

Sounds like you live in a wonderful place with the ability to have ducks and possibly other critters. I used to have ducks but there were eaten by raccoons. Thanks for the continuing encouragement. Bless you.
Reply
possumlane Premium
Yes I am blessed - I have a lovely big 4 bedroom house on a 1/4 acre block 3 little dogs, 1 cat, 14 chooks +1 chicken, and 6 ducks. I get so many eggs that I have taken to distributing them around to people in the town. My way of blessing others. The chooks and ducks have the run of the whole back yard and they break up the soil and of course fertilise the lawn. I have an extensive garden albeit in pots and have tomatoes, peppers and all manner of herbs growing as I love to cook and like fresh food as opposed to supermarket food and I stay away from foods that have preservatives in.
I never saw a raccoon all the time I was in the States - plenty of deer - of boy that gave me a start coming around the corner and all those deer standing in the road. - I live in outback Queensland and it is almost winter however we have not seen rain for over 3 years and the temps here are still 36/37 each and every day which is lovely really - does the garden good and while it is quite hot outside coming back into the air conditioning is a blessing.

Fortunately I do not look my age (don't act it either) but at least I can pack in a lot in one day and I do have a lot of fun

Hi Carol, I'm also from Australia and have just read your profile. Wow, you're definitely someone I can learn a great deal from, particularly around mindset.

Your story and attitude have provided great inspiration....thank you!

Hey there is life on the other side - I have two marriage disasters - I think I am too much for men to handle lol - but I will give you my e-mail addy and I can shoot some stuff to you that you may not have thought of - some of it comes from the book which I am going to start releasing online (for a fee) not to you of course. I think it is probably a lot harder for men going through such a challenging issue but I can assure the hurt diminishes with time. I am currently stuck out at Longreach and trying to get back to the coast - all my furniture is still in storage together with a beautiful baby grand piano which I only had for a couple of months before everything crashed - great that I could be of some inspiration to someone and if there is anything I can do to help along the way just feel free to ask - if I don't know the answer I will not stuff you around - I will just say so - my e-mail addy is manyotheroptions@gmail.com

I was planning a trip over at the end of April however an issue has arisen with the house I am renting so am waiting to see what happens but if all goes well will be over early May - maybe we can catch up for a coffee. By the way I grew up in East Fremantle - my father was a footballer with East and then a coach. He also had a prominent business in Fremantle. I have not been home for over 20 years and I know the place has changed but I have an aged Aunt that I would like to see before she passes - but hey great to talk to you and I am sure that you will come out of this tunnel and find a beautiful life on the other side. Just look forward - don't look back - there is nothing you can do about history but an awful lot you can achieve if you just continue to look forward

Well I have certainly had a lot of fun along the road of disasters - I made sure that my boys all had their sports and being a tomboy myself they 3 of the boys followed me into motor sport - the youngest I sent to the States and he completed his education and played basketball over there. My youngest daughter did Ballet and tennis and I still managed to become a high skilled and competent ten pin bowlers with a 175 average so I have crammed a lot into my short life. All the kids have their own business ventures - all the grandkids go to private christian schools - two of my kids are Pastors however not one of them know where I am nor I think do they care which is a bummer but that's okay onward and upward - they are the ones missing out - I get to do all the things I missed out on while raising them. The youngest owes me a lot of money and since the GFC fiasco and having no money suddenly no one wants to know me. But I have travelled the world since my second husband walked out on the family and left his little boy, my youngest, for me to raise. I have had some adventures and my daughter often said that I should write a book. I have had a gun pulled on me at the Beijing International Airport, that was interesting, lost my credit cards in the atm in Hong Kong got robbed in London - had a fabulous trip to Bermuda spent several days at the Hilton Millenium hotel in New York, right opposite the World Trade Centre disaster and have some great pics of the hole that was created when the World Trade centre collapsed and I could go on but you get the picture - I do not stand still for long. I could probably keep you amused for hours but maybe I will save it for the second book lol

Stubborn, determined, persistent and failure is not in my vocabulary - but just an ordinary woman with a penchant to succeed. I also do not let people tell me they have a problem because our brain is like a computer and if you say you have a problem then the brain shuts down whereas if you say you have an issue or a challenge the brain will look for any way to go over, under,around or simply through it. I worked 5 jobs a week when I separated from my first husband and had six kids to support from 9yo to 11months so I am not afraid of hard work - I have run business for most of my life and travelled the world and my aim is to help those who are unable to help themselves - a hand up - not a hand out - teach people how to do something and they will be able to take care of things themselves as opposed to doing everything for them - they then become dependent and that is draining thank you for your kind remarks

I agree with you 100% I spent some time as a Drill Sergeant and I would tell my soldiers their is no such thing as failure unless you quit, and if your going to quit then do it today so I know who the strong ones are! Because there is no place here for weakness. But know if you chose to fail today then failure becomes easier the next time and the next until it becomes habit. But if you chose to stay then strength works the same way!

What sort of book do you want to write? Mine developed out of my various travels around the world and seeing how the poor are treated, how they live and I know that I can show them a better way to live life. There are so many opportunities out there and one can start with a little money. If you would care to write me at my e-mail addy I will share some of them with you especially as some of the best ones are in the States and most Americans do not even know these exist. So, my book is designed to educate people, show them the opportunities and participate with them if necessary. That is the second site I am now working on but would prefer to keep our discussions a little more private - can't afford to give away all my secrets and forego an income lol

Morning Vel - I have to tell you that you are not the oldest - there is a guy on here who I am following and he is 84 so we are never too old to learn and with out age comes experience - something that the younger generation could benefit from if they would only listen. Having said that I cannot remember listening to my mother when I was a teenager but the things she taught me have stood me in good stead.
