I've been messing around with images for my site. By messing around, I mean making a mess. I've just spent the better part of two days trying to use Canva and CCO images for my site. Kyle's got some great training on this, but if I would have watched Jay's Live Video Class on this, I could have saved myself a lot of time and mistakes.'ve just learned so much in the last 90 minutes that I now feel confident about how to make my site better

I feel pretty good about this post! I still have so much to learn, but wow, I'm getting there. Take a look at my new

I've finally gotten it up. In spite of that perfect blend of being very busy at my day/night job, trying to squeeze all this education into one tiny brain, being paralyzed with my own perfecitonism, I've finally got something up. It's not perfect. I still need to master image uploads, email sign ups, and so on, I'm okay with it. It's UP! And I have finally published my very own website. Thanks to you all! I've been really quiet on WA lately, but that's only because I've been so swamped.
777 - I feel like there should be lots of bells, whistles, and money pouring down. I woke up today completely stressed because the amount of work I would be facing today. But then I logged into my WA page and saw those sweet, beautiful 7's. It's a sign - a small sign to tell me I'm absolutely on the right path even though I'm frustrated by my lack of time and current inability to put more work into building my site. Today of all days I needed this sign. Thanks WA! I actually wouldn't min
When I first joined WA 9 days ago, I had the luxury of having a bit of time to really put all my energy into building my foundation. Both of the businesses were slow and we had the staff we needed to manage our daily working life. It was only a week, but I took full advantage of that gift. I literally focused an inordinate amount of time in that first week on WA education and foundation building. In the past two days the luxury of having that time has ended. For now. With some key staff on
Hello my WA Family. Yes, after 7 days, I do consider you my family. I appreciate that I have distant cousins within the WA family I haven't met yet. That's ok. I come from a REALLY big family and while I have a whole tribe of aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews that I'm really, really close with, there are others I don't know at all.But I digress...First of all: THANK YOU! Every one of you, whether we are currently ships passing in the night, or whether we have communicated, PM'd,
It's been seven days since I've signed up as an WA member. Being new is like going to Kindergarten for the first time. Here are my top 10 things I've learned this week.You're so excited to finally be part of the class, you can't control your excitement.You get to make all these new friends and you have to play nice.There's always going to be that kid that pulls another kid's hair for attention (or in this case PM's you with absolutely NO conversation or message related to WA.)You move out of
This morning, I wanted to get up and get moving on building my WA foundation. It wasn't to be.With a tropical wave blowing through, we had a sailboat and tenders that needed to be checked on. We had an ailing father that needed some care. We had life to deal with.The wind was gusting at 35mph, the sea churning so much that ferries were canceled and small boat advisories were in place. Roadside signs had toppled. Branches of trees were everywhere. My two dogs were velcro dogs, so attached

Well, I've been deeply immersed in WA for the past 8 hours. Now it's time to clear the head and give my eyes a rest. For me, nothing does this better than heading off to the beach ( a five minute walk) with my dogs and throwing myself in the water with my mask and snorkel. I get some exercise, cool off in this 90+ heat, and change my current focus. Instead of computer screens, keyword searches, struggling for the perfect words for my site, and fighting that inner-perfectionist that manages
