About Producechick
Joined October 2012
Hi Everyone! My name is Nancy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful daughters, an 18 year old who recently moved out on her own and a 12 year old who's ready to conquer the world. I work full time, but am very motivated to making my life my own, by becoming my own boss and striving for financial freedom so that I can spend more time with my family. Now that my daughter moved out, I realize that I missed out on too many years of quality time, which I can never regain. This cycle ends now, and I intend to spend more time with my family and friends, along with a some time by the Ocean enjoying every moment life has to offer.

Hi Nancy, as you can see I'm new to WA. I was curious how time has affected your online business. Does it get easier to keep adding content or do you start with new niche ideas once you get so far with one? I was asking you because of your tenure with the company and obviously your success because you're still here!

Thanks for any comments or advice you can lend me. Thank you Nancy!

Yes! I just read your profile and I totally feel the same way. So much time goes by where we lose track of time and moments we will never get to capture again. Thats why im so glad I came into WA. It feels so refreshing to be in a community where everyone supports each other and so positive.;)

No problem, I think it's a great niche! And yes, Lloyd Irvin is an amazing internet guru! I was surprised at how many internet seminars he hosts! He is an amazing business man. My daughter has had the opportunity to attend a few of his seminars, and she works at the facility she trains at, which is a Lloyd Irvin affiliate, so they operate under his work style/ethics. She's certainly getting an education in business which will help her in the long run. There are so many opportunities for you in that niche! I'm so excited for you! Good luck!

Thank you for the follow. Your website is absolutely fabulous, but do you have the traffic it deserves...? Just wondering...... From having been hanging out here a the last week or so, I have been noticing you.... thanks also for your blogs and profile. It feels like one can get to know someone when they share.

producechick Premium
Hi Joe, Thanks again for the compliment on my site. I seem to be getting some nice traffic, now that I have linked some of my articles to my facebook page and I have also been utilizing sites like stumble upon and pintrest. I am taking this slowly, as I know that my site needs more content, and I need to continue writing articles to build more traffic. This seems to be the root of success. I want my content to be original, I want it to be mine, and that's why it's taking a little longer for me, as my time is limited. I could link to other recipes, articles, or to someone else's videos etc., but it just wouldn't be the same for me. So, it may take me a little longer to get it to the point where I can blast it across all the social networks and feel comfortable enough that I have enough on there for everyone to see, but I know in the end it will be worth it. Slow and steady wins the race.

Joe Henning Premium
I don't believe there's any reason NOT to "blast it across all the social networks" - you offer so much, wrapped in such an appealing package that I have already passed it on to quite a few people and have only received positive comments. In fact I believe you could improve traffic to it (which is the ultimate and only way you will see sales), by perhaps starting now to recruit a "New Year, let's slash the holidays weight" type crowd to register for a reward (like a week in a Caribbean hotel or something... lol) and to share their daily eating habits, using your recipes, their success stories and to have to click on a like button to publish ... something like that... you know what I mean....

The benefit will be a lot of activity from many other IP addresses to your site, your FB will explode and finally, someone recently said "less is more" - having a whole lot of stuff to read may not be as appealing as maybe a video recipe series etc. ... but blast the site, it's more, way more than good enough...!! Could you not get a supplier to support with something special in stead of the Caribbean hotel prize....?

The fact that you chose a terribly competitive niche should not be a reason not to become number on page ranked, as the traffic you'll have will be so much more worthwhile than selling shoe laces (or whatever), just because it's less crowded.

Go girl!!

I've actually been searching affiliates for the right type of partners for ad banners to put on the site. Your comments are such are warm welcome! thanks so much! I have some content I had been finishing up, and once I add it, I might just have to incorporate a mini-blast! LOL!

Hi Nancy,

Yes, full-time employment has its serious drawbacks, and one of them is the sad separation from family that I often hear about.

I wrote a book, "Beyond Employment: The Implications of Being Employed and What You Need to Know About Wage Slavery"

This is one of the things I wrote about in that book.

I need to get it published. It has been years since I wrote it!

Thanks for adding me a few days ago. I'm a bit behind on getting back to folks who have. It is my custom to get to know those who do take the time to add me to their list.

I'm honored! Do take action in here. This place will take you a very long way and hopefully, with diligence, allow you to spend more time with the younger daughter!

Thanks Daniel! I would be interested in reading your book someday! I have been reading many of your posts and you are a very talented writer. You can keep an audience. Thanks for getting back to me, I too try to get back to everyone as well, albeit late at times.

I am trying to take action in here, and learning as much as I can, in the limited time I have, because I do see that ultimately it will afford me that time I am looking for. I sometimes just wish I had extra hours in the day!

I look forward to networking with you. Speak with you soon!

You will make it Nancy. I have faith in you and know because of what you wrote.

All it takes is diligence. I have been under siege in mine own life with others outside here throwing darts of naysaying at me for a very long time now. I get tired of it but I still can't be moved with regard to what I believe about WA.

If I don't make it here, I won't anywhere.

Thanks for the kind comments about my writing. I try. I'm off-target a lot but I'm very forthright about what I say.

It isn't easy trying to live in two worlds, here and the world of the employee-minded folks who think my efforts on here is poor use of my time.

That book is all about that other world and the grim nature of it!

Yes grandkids are & should be a great blessing. And this on line business from what all I have read & seen over the past yrs can be a great & awesome thing. As for me I have been talking & praying with & too the good Lord that it will happen for me when & only when He knows it is the right time for me, when He knows that I am ready,. For I know that His time is not always our time. In my case its more so than not but also in saying that the Lord has always given us blessings when needed. I may be wrong, ha I have been wrong once or twice before in my life "Nancy dont let my wife know I said that" but I feel that this Wealthy Affiliate is right. I been in just a couple of other online & offline businesses it its just their is all I can tell you if that makes any se\ince. Nancy I feel that we & as will as others can be blessed & learn this to be a blessing to & for others as long as we let the Lord lead us. This is the way that I truly feel. I am not going into politics but we really need to keep in prayer about the election this coming Nov. Hey I have babbled long enough. Thanks for the follow up, as you can tell I enjoy meeting & talking with people it just takes me extra time for me to type & send these blogs & things out .

Yes Nancy, one thing that my wife & I have learned over the yrs is that we 'haft" to be their parants before we are their friends which is hard sometimes as you may will know. We have 4 kids & so far 5 grandkids & as you will hopfully eventually have grandkids of your own because they are the greatist, you get to spoil them & then if you want you can send home ha, pay back. But they all are a great blessing.
Reply
producechick Premium
Ha! Payback can be such a great word!! I'm not rushing into being a grandmother yet, but I know I'll be happy when they come along. Hopefully if I can get be as successful with this online business as I have been in my outside career, I'll even have plenty of time to spoil the grandkids rotten!

Hi & Thanks for the welcome to WA. I think one of the hardest things to deal with is having to deal with your children moving out. It surely makes you realize how quickly your life has passed in front of you, and the many years that have been wasted (due to work) and not spent with your family. It's life changing. I think we have the same goals, and hopefully with IM we can achieve success and never feel as if life is taking advantage of us again, rather that we are taking advantage of all that life has to offer! Good Luck!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)

Hi Carson, I am getting through the dashboard, but I am having a problem at the web building stage. I chose a design from the word press options, and followed the directions, hit "build" and it offered me the admin name and password. However, when I try to go in to access the page, I don't get a Word Press login page, and Safari doesn't recognize the links. Am I missing a step somewhere?

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I have my team looking into this because your site should be showing up instantly. I have had a couple other members mention this today so there could be a glitch in the system that is causing a delay in the sites being setup.

Nothing that you are doing wrong, most likely a glitch on our end. Apologies for any inconvenience, we'll sort it out ASAP.

I'm very happy to see you working through the training and taking action, very well done :)

Let's keep in touch!

Have a great weekend.

Hi Produce. I saw you posted on the WA chat box. I thought I'd throw out to you that WA seriously is the #1 place, aside from a few other good places I know of (that don't really compare to WA). Now that WA has the free thing setup, I suggest staying on that for like 1-3 months (or whatever works for you to get everything going) and only work on 1 website. Apparently you all get 2 hosted websites, and that's honestly plenty to get started on creating an awesome website. You also have the free website available, siterubix, which ranks just as well as any other .com domain out there (.com's rank the best, then .org's 2nd, and so on).

I'm an old member so I didn't have access to this free trial you all have now. I had to pay for the membership up front. You're lucky. There's plenty of people who'd be glad to help you in here. Good luck.
