Hi, my name is Breanne, or Bee for short.

I am so glad to have found WA. I have spent the past two years plus looking for an honest and effective way to earn an income on the internet. While I was thankfully able to avoid falling prey to scams (mainly because I am so tight with money) in that time I made very little progress. In fact, I don’t mind telling you the grand total of my earnings: a whopping $52.63.

That money (enough to pay for my second month here at WA, wouldn't you know?), earned over a period of around six months, was from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, where I made a sorry attempt at learning general transcription. I am a good typist, but after stops and starts, that finally fell off my radar. Maybe I will continue to build up the skill and be able to hire it out someday, but at the time, my heart just wasn’t in it. It wasn't something that I had a passion for.

What I do have a passion for is writing, and I have devoted nearly half of my life to honing that skill – although I have not made a cent from it yet. I have also done proofreading and beta reading of fiction stories for about five years – for free. My first large project that has spanned the entire length of that time is finally completed, and the end result is a story over 150,000 words.

I reached a point where I became so used to working for free, I began to undervalue my own skills, and to believe that nobody would ever want to pay for them, despite the fact that I saw people everywhere capitalizing on similar skills; and many times I found myself correcting their spelling! (I have seen people who claim to have advanced degrees in the English language still writing ‘a lot’ as one word! But that is a rant for a different time…)

About six months ago, the thought entered my head that I might go into business for myself, perhaps as a freelance writer, proofreader, and/or virtual assistant. I knew in my heart that there had to be a way to leverage the skills I have spent so much time developing, and the work that I truly enjoy doing, and make money from them.

But I had no idea where to begin. I lacked knowledge, I lacked means, I lacked confidence. Something had to change.

And then it did. I was researching yet another micro-gig site, this time for data entry, when I stumbled upon a review for Wealthy Affiliate. It was like the proverbial light shining down through the clouds. I heard angels singing. This is the place. This is the one that is going to make all the difference…

To Be Continued. ;)

UPDATE March 2016: The skills we learn here really work! WA helped me get my first blog editing job! If you are interested in how I did it, you can read more in my blogs here:

Money Goals
Since I am so new to all of this, I am going to start small. I would be happy eventually earning $500 a month from my online business. I would be ecstatic to earn $1000 or more a month off of this venture. As for time, I am willing to invest as much as it takes as long as I enjoy doing this - and of course I will only be able to determine that after going through some training. Time to hit the books!

Sounds to me like you have been scammed in the past. I am right there with you. Look at everyone you can't see with one focused eye and one ackward eye.

Hey there Breanne

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

What's going on Breanne? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)

If you are a writer, you immediately have an advantage within the online world. Success online comes down to choosing a niche and then working to become an expert within that niche through your content.

One thing that I have learned over the years is that you earn a lot more money writing for yourself than you ever do writing for others. If you can help someone in any niche, you can build a business doing so and that is what we are going to help you here with at WA.

Great to have you here Bee and I really do look forward to working with you! :)

PS. I hope you have an awesome week ahead!

Thank you so much, Kyle! That is very encouraging and something I definitely needed to hear.

I am working my way slowly through your beginner course. I understand that everyone has to start somewhere, and I am trying to be patient with myself and focus on following the excellent program you have here.

The more I think about it the more I realize that my goal in this truly is to find a way to help people, and I am working on understanding the best way for me to do that with what I have to offer.

Thank you again for taking the time to write me, I really appreciate it! :)

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
