About Queenredgie
Joined September 2015
Just a 66 year old woman who has finally found the courage and confidence to have a real go at making it as an entrepreneur!
Have tried over the years off and on to try and create a business for myself online and have wasted an awful lot of money not really knowing what I was doing and how to do it properly.

A BIT ABOUT ME
The past few years have been incredibly difficult with the death of my Father, being made redundant, my brother diagnosed with cancer, loosing my house and an end of a relationship.
At first with my redundancy money I took myself off and travelled in the Uk and Mexico, and came back feeling incredibly lost, depressed and what seemed no structure or security to my life.
I was very frightened and very lost.

I had no choice, I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and think about what I really wanted to do with my life and choose something that had real meaning and purpose as well as hopefully earning a living from it. So I was back to what I have always wanted to do - have an online business and the freedom and independance sense of achievement that all brings.

In the past I had signed up to AffiloramaJetpack but I am not sure if it is for me, so have decided that as I have 60 days to test it I will do it alongside testing Wealthy Affiliate. I signed up here originally over a year ago but never really got started.
I have looked at the reviews online for both these courses and Wealthy Affiliate just comes out on top above AffiloramaJetpack every time.

Firs6t, you have a beautiful profile photo. You don't look 64 years old. I am 86 and have a daughter about your age.

I started with WA four years ago and wish I had joined Kyle and Carson when they started. I hope you are experiencing success and have less reason to be depressed.

I suffer from anxiety and depression. As a help for my anxiety I blog about it on my web site trulygoodlife.com. Visit and comment and if you have a site post the URL and I will return the favor.

Hello Ann and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and from your previous online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hi Robert
You are right there it is a steep learning curve.
I have tried twice before with ventures online and have lost a lot of money! Failing is not an option this time, I am determined I will succeed and I feel I am in the right place to do it!
Thanks! I have already read some of your blog/posts they are going to be very helpful!

No probs Ann and by the way in case I haven't told you before -

You may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert
No probs and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hi again Lauren!
I have another problem with the layout of my site, and I dont feel I can move forward until I have resolved it. If you could help (Idiots Guide) I would be so grateful.
The problem I have is that mostly when I log on I get the look of attachement 2 but mainly I get attachment 1. It doesnt show the boxes as it should do. But also I have my one post title and About Anna showing underneath the search bar and I cant seem to be able to get rid of them. Really appreciate any help and assistance!

laurenjean Premium
Hi Ann, can you be more specific about how you want the boxes to show? I don't know this Theme but most things on your Home Page can usually be changed when you customise your theme. Click on Dashboard - Theme - Customise. Where do you want the search bar to show up? Where do you want your posts and pages to show up? Perhaps you need to try another Theme? If you go to your Theme there is usually a video tutorial you can watch so you can see what you can tweak and how to do it.

Hi
I want the boxes to show as in this attachment? But the problem is I have the title of one of my posts and the About Me page showing just under the search bar as well as top right menu, where they should be?
I like the layout of the site but now after deleting my post because of the faulty layout I have re published it and now it is showing twice below the search bar and twice in category boxes.
I have already changed my theme once, that wasnt exactly seamless either. Sorry, just getting fed up trying to rectify this. Spent so much wasted time trying to sort it out.
Have also sent a message to support Thanks any way Lauren!

Hi Lauren!

Live Portfolio is the theme I am using!

I have watched gain the training video on Custom Menus and Navigation and it doesnt look the same as my page when I go from Theme -Customise? This is what I see below?

Nightmare!

laurenjean Premium
Hi Ann, I hear you and I feel for you. It's always tricky when you're trying to master a new Theme. And very time consuming.
It's really difficult for me to assist as I've never used Live Portfolio before. I think the only way to support you properly is to chat on Skype or something so we can share screens. To do this I would have to set up a dummy site using your Theme. The tricky part is I'm in South Africa and so finding a good time to chat is not easy.
So here's what I suggest you do... Add a question on Wealthy Affiliate asking specifically for support from members who have used the Theme Live Portfolio.
To ask a question, click on the pen button top right (between rank button and envelope for private messages) to access the drop-down menu. Click on Ask a Question. If no—one can help please send me a PM and we will try Plan B.

Hi Ann, okey dokey, I sent you a PM, have created a test website so I can try help you with your Theme. Just playing around in there at the moment trying to see if I can help you sort out your issues.

Hi again Laurenjean
sent a message saying I was getting by and now I need to ask a question regarding the appearance of my site again.
Was trying to work out how to put some background images/colours in the category boxes? Am assuming it's Appearance+ background but not sure where to from there?

onestopselfhelp.com

Thanks in advance!

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! :)

Hi again Ann! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

Thanking you Nathaniel just finding my way around WA at the moment.
Think I need to work out where to go to ask questions as a beginner? Only just noticed your comments?
Have made my website and am now looking to personalize it. Thanks for your support.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You can ask questions of me, right here on your profile, or you can go to one of the "classrooms": http://www.screencast.com/t/JwHEtdfVGwu

Pick a topic your question is about, then go from there. People from the community can answer. Alternatively, you can go to live chat and ask there. There's usually a lot of people there that can help out!

Did you get a chance to ask any questions yet Ann?

Go ahead, test out WA and see what the members have to say! You can ask anything you want in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started (Newbie questions ALLOWED!) or you can drop by my profile to get 1-on-1 help from me https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell

Hey Ann, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Ann!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!


★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

Get access to a 2-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours
