About Rea
Joined February 2010
Hi All,
My name is Rea, from a semi-rural town in England.

I am a nurse by profession. I love reading, travelling and and self improvement programs.2 years ago, I took up property investing as a way to ensuring financial freedoom in my retirement but due to the worldwide recession, that hasn't gone according to plan.I have a tiny portfolio.The properties are renting but are in negative equity.

I have always loved Marketing and have been selling on Ebay for over 4 years. From what I know now, I was approaching that wrongoo.. Though I did very well in the early years the economic downturn put a spoke to that.

I recently took early retirement from my nursing job due to ill-health, and have been trying to get a go at Affiliate Marketing on my own for the past 3 months,with very little success.I found it to be jungle out there and I seemed to be puddling furiously like a dog in a huge pond, but going nowhere.I had joined a Money Makers Coaching Club, supposedly to be taught by millionaires but all one got access to were tons of outdated video tutorials,(Nothing worked), so that turned up to be a dead squid.. Can't go into details here, but after 2 months, I cut my loses and unsubscribed.

Anyway, two weeks ago, I saw an email referal of WA Travis and as a result, I joined WA over a week ago. And From what I have been reading on the site so far, I am now convinced that joining WA was a very wise decision.However I am not techie and that's a bit of a drawback. But I remain positive as it feels good and is motivational to be part of a very welcoming and supportive community. Thanks PotPiedgirl, Kyle and Roy Penrod.... I don't feel so alone.

Hello Rea, nice to meet you. My name is Ognjen.
We share the same passion regarding books and reading.
I think you made a good decision leaving your nursing job and pursuing your dream, aspiring to become an Affiliate Marketer. I have set the same goals for myself and I want to see some progress in the next couple of months.
Good to have you hear.
Talk to you soon.

Hello Rea, Thanks for the comment on my blog post. I was a medic and nurse and knew I couldn't carry on that career until I was in my 60's so went into teaching and then combined my art. I am also from the UK so know the IM desert. WA is a great community and fantastic for sharing. If you need to share more than welcome. Best wishes.

Nice Intro! My wife is a nurse but is just finishing up her CPC credentialing. She too had to retire due to back problems that most nurses have.

Hi Rea, thanks for the follow! I joined here in August of this year, and I really have learned quite a bit here for being a complete newbie to internet marketing! I see we have somewhat similar backgrounds since I have spent about 15 years altogether working as a nurses aide at local long-term care facilities. Hoping to soon get out of this line of work (also because of health reasons) and do IM full time.

Hope to hear more from you in the future and best wishes in your success!

Thanks Rea thank you for following me .
Like you eBay has been a place where I parked my selling I have A Feed B. score of 510 100% but they are changing there policy so often I'm getting dizzy;

By the time your done running around I felt that they had you working for them and some night of no sleep worrying about feedback .There selling fees to me are to high and if you did not pay your selling fees one week after receiving the invoice you would get a flow of alerts.and even a phone call LOL

so I have been on the hunt for some where less stressful .I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit with internet marketing . Larry

Thanks for the the follow too. Lol..My ebay experience is no different. They probably are feeling the pinch like the rest of us.. Products don't move as fast as they used to.. and the continual changes don't make for an inviting environment... Hope you achieve sucesses here. Wish you all the best. Rea.:)

Hi Rea, I've come to appreciate it when others blog about particular issues they've struggled with, and also told of their success in overcoming them. Many of the issues are the same one's I've struggled with.

Recently I've tried to be better about conveying my own struggles in blog posts, and then detailing how I've overcome them. I've also found that when I post about my issues, others come out of the woodwork to help. That's why I love being a WA member. I'm glad you found WA too!

Hi, Lois! Welcome to WA! And thanks for adding me as a buddy.

WA is a great resource. I look at it like a trade organization for affiliate marketers. Yeah, they've got some great learning tools, but the real value comes from building relationships with other (and more successful) affiliate marketers.

I just started a little over 3 weeks ago and just made my first sale yesterday. It was also my first $50 day, too!
Reply
Roy Penrod Premium
Oh yeah, that first sale felt really great. I actually did a crazy little jib in my living room. lol

Don't tell anyone ... but the other sales feel pretty good too. *wink*

Good luck with finding a niche. I've got an article about it over at my WA blog. It links to some good resources that might help you find your first niche.

Hi,
My name is Lois Chigovanyika.I have just joined the Wealth Affiliate Community. I recently took early retirement from Nursing and have been trying to get a go at Affiliate Marketing with very little success. I saw a referal of WA from a Bum Marketing Group member and as a result, I joined WA. And From what I have read so far, I believe joining WA was a wise decision. There is so much scope for newbies to learn,aquire the necessary skills and build a viable business.
