About RoriO
Joined August 2016
Hi, I'm a mother who dealt with 2 addicted sons: One turned his life around and became a champion in his field. The other died of an overdose. I teach the strategies that my successful son used, and I support those strategies with the research behind them. If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction/s, be sure to check out my blog. Coming soon: my book and a free mini-course on how success is achieved.

Hello Rori!

Thank you for liking one of my comments. I have now read your biography and I'm very impressed of your strength. I'm sad to hear about your son who lost his fight but I'm so happy for you to know you have another son who won back his life and with whom you can work together with.

You are doing a very important job and I wish from all of my heart that you may achieve your goals. I will follow you!

Hi RorO,
We both joined around the same time but I just saw you while I was lurking in live chat(great way to pick up tid bits) Don't think I am the only one LOL

You gave one quite long answer that made me have to look at you profile which led to your website and leaving a comment.

Looks great , interesting niche, I will return! or no that was "I'll be bak!"

Keep up the good work

RoriO,

I just read ABOUT you. First of all, I'm SOO sorry about your son. I know that saying "Well, the other turned out great" doesn't begin to heal the other tragedy. I'm especially "tuned" to families like yours because 5 yrs ago I went through a WONDERFUL Christian rehab in Creedmoor, NC that's WAAY out in the country. I only had to deal with alcohol, as far as substance, but I'm still dealing with some sexual addictions as well. The stories, AND the victories still bring tears to my eyes, and in fact, I just completed a certification course for Peer Support Specialists. I'm not in that field right now, but trust me I pray for those that are hurting.

God Bless, and keep running the good race.
George

Thanks, George, and you have much to be proud of in how you have turned things around. I hope your Peer Support will go far to help many; there are so many! I, too believe in the power of prayer.

If you read my posts such as the one on Using Quantum Physics to Succeed in Life, you will find it links visualization and using thought to create better outcomes. Thought, of course, includes prayer.

Best wishes to you here on WA.

Thanks for your follow, Rori!
About addictions, I've one that I need to conquer-the smoking habit! We know it's bad for health, but the brain needs to be convinced that it's not smart to think: "one more won't hurt"..................they are all no good, each one that is lit...:-()

Great to be in your network☺
Cheers

Hello Rori,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me. Sorry to read you've lost your son.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Loes, I've been over to your blogs and don't see the niche ideas post with the checklist of 25 points to go through before publishing a post. Can you give me some direction? Thank you.

Thanks, Loes! I have studied the Facebook one before but that was not the issue. I did get Facebook working, although the title is still duplicated and run-on. I re-studied that post just now and I've asked PjGermain (author of the Facebook Sharing - No Image Displayed post) about his last comment before closing the lesson.

He says, "Lastly, be careful not to duplicate your meta titles or meta descriptions. Don't confuse the search engines with duplicates. This can also mess up your social sharing."

I'm wondering if that has anything to do with my duplicate title, although it is not duplicated anywhere in the meta title and meta description. So I asked him where those might be duplicated that could mess that up.

Thanks for your top-rated blogs list. I'll cruise that and see if anything offers me a glimmer of hope for getting my posts on social media properly. I will let you know!

Rori, I was just reading your comment on my feedback request. And again thanks for that. So I came over here to read all about you.

With the escalating problems resulting from the increase of drug usage you have certainly chosen a worthwhile and serious niche. I really hope you reach many people.

I have never had a sibling with this problem nor lost any through other causes. But I did lose a very close friend many years ago. I still expect to see him when I visit his mum. And I really miss him.

Work hard, try and have some fun and now keep in touch.

Hi Rori
You are one of the bravest people I have come across. I can't begin to imagine the pain you have been through, and I think you are doing an amazing thing in trying to help others in the same position as your sons.
It is an honour to follow you, and I will watch your work with interest.
I wish you the very best
Chrissie :)

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! :)

Thx, Pribs, I already have my niche. Just glad to finally find a good, honest platform without taking my money for nothing in return. I've been through about 5. I can tell WA is for real.

Hi...

I just read your profile a bit more closely than yesterday and I'm sorry to hear what you have been through....especially losing one son...I have cared for 2 addicted people (1 family) and the other friend died. So I sort have a feeling where you're at! Can never know what it must be like for a mother :-( Am glad to read your other son came out of it on the other side! That's great...

I look forward to seeing your blog...

Best wishes
Steve

Hey Steve, it seems to affect almost everyone these days. That's why I say that All Kids Are At Risk Today. Sad how over-exposed to negative influences we all are these days. Stay positive! It is the answer!
Best,

Hey Margie! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
