About PSchafer
Joined June 2016
After 32 years of being a professional hairstylist, I had to stop due to physical limitations. I closed my salon and tried to find a new line of work. It has not been easy to find another career that I enjoyed as much as working in a salon.
My last job was managing a shoe store for a national chain of stores. Long hours and constant pressure from upper management made the job an extremely stressful environment. I developed tarsal tunnel syndrome in both feet and a hairline fracture in my left foot. My district manager would not allow me to take time off for the surgery for six months; he did not want to be inconvenienced during the busy season. I gave my 2- week notice and started searching for a better way to earn income. After searching through many websites, Wealthy Affiliate is the answer for me to create a new career.

Hi Patty, thanks for following me - it's nice to meet you here at WA!

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

It is nice to meet you too Dmitriy and thanks for the follow. Thanks for the encouragement. Video games are a awesome tool for eye/hand coordination. I can see the difference in my nieces and nephews who play games regularly. You have a great niche.
Thanks,
Patty

Thanks Apeng, Your encouragement is always welcome to me. My first goal was to spend 5 hours a day on WA, however, I quickly loose track of time developing and learning new things. I'm having too much fun. Thanks again and I wish you all the best as well.

May your business come together before your unemployment runs out. You are an example of why we all need a residual income we can fall back on when your health fails or we face some other crisis.

You will need to build cash flow fast. Do you still have a list of your past clients. Contact them an see how you can help them. Perhaps personal services or specialized products. You love hair styling so that is an obvious niche for you. Provide products and service not readily available locally. What do the elderly need in terms of personal care that you may be able to provide.

Meetup and craigslist are good ways to publicize your services locally.

Thanks for your help Bill. My plan is to focus on completing my website since I am not receiving unemployment. You are right I need a cash flow.
Since I am a licensed cosmologist, I am held to a code of ethics and laws. I'll need to find a niche that will not break any of them along with not wanting to undercut a fellow stylist.
You have me thinking outside the box and I appreciate your wisdom. The elderly need to be pampered so I thought comfortable shoes would be a great niche'. My Dad is 85 and my step-mother is 93 turning 94 next month and are in great shape. They have times that they need extra help due to surgery or illness.

I'm sorry to hear about having to close you hairshop :(. It is rough when life decides we are going to change whether or not that's what we wanted at the time. You will find amazing ways to make a living here. especially being very experienced with something like hair. I know you'll do great here and I am so thankful for your follow. I'm looking to forward to reading about all of your success here.

Hi Patty,

Thank you so much for following me. I am delighted to be among your connections.

I too used to be a hairstylist. I spent most of my time as a cosmetology teacher though.

Welcome to WA! And yes, this is the answer to your need for a different type of income. While only having been here a short time myself, I can feel the success if we work at it.
