About Scoutmhen
Joined January 2015
I'm a working mother (web copywriter) and proud wife from the burbs of DFW. My goal is to make money at home so I can spend more time with my family and FINALLY quit the corporate rat race! Writing is not just my job, it's my passion. I'm eager to start writing about the things that interest me vs. writing for "the man".

I love your goals Michelle!

I think they are very realistic & I know you can achieve in time if you follow the advice I've laid out here: How Long Will It Take Me To Be Successful?. You're part of the WA family now! So you have all you need to achieve these goals in time. Either way I'll be here for you and so will the rest of the WA community.

Just give me a holla if you need anything Michelle!

Hey Michelle,

I can totally appreciate you wanting to spend all the time with your children. This business made it possible so my wife and I were able to stay home with our daughter while I was able to earn a fulltime income that covered both our salaries.

So I can tell you from experience that it is possible and the Internet presents this opportunity. You can literally take any passion/interest that you may have and turn it into a full time business and we are going to teach you how to do this here at WA. It will require some work and dedication, but it is well worth it.

You have a community of support behind you, myself included. If you ever need anything or just want to say hi, simply reply to this. Would love to hear from you. :)

Wow - that's awesome that you were able to make enough money so both you and your wife could stay home! I have been researching ways to make money off websites but everything I come across asks for a credit card upfront. It's cool that WA allows all the training even as a starter member.

I will definitely reach out with any questions.

Yeah this business has really blessed my family. And hopefully it can do the same for you in time. Keep me posted. I'm sure you'll see why I've been a member here since to 2007.

Hi Eddy, this might not be the forum for this type of question but this is the issue that has held me back from going out on my own in the past. I have very good health insurance through my job and I am not sure the healthcare exchange market would be comparable. Also, my husband has a plan through job but it's terrible and way, way, way too expensive for a family. I know the type of coverage you can get probably depends on how much money you can make. Just wondering if you have any general advice on the topic - it is rather personal so I can understand you not wanting to talk about specifics on this forum. Just some things I am wondering. Really getting excited and planning to finish the Getting Started training tonight. Have built my website and starting writing on it already!

Hey Michelle,

That's a great question. I'll be honest if you have good health insurance I doubt you'll get anything comparable when you go out on your own. http://FreelancersUnion.org is what I've used. So you can review the info. But having great health insurance is a great asset and probably why some people still work when they run their online business.

Or you could move to Canada where Kyle has told me about their great FREE health insurance. Why the greatest country in the world can accomplish the same is a whole other convo. Sigh.

Thank you for the web link. I stumbled upon them doing my research a while back. And, I hear ya, I would move to Canada in a heartbeat (for the health insurance alone) if my family wasn't all here in the states. But, I do feel fortunate that we now have a president who at least tried to get us one step closer. That might be too political for some people but that is just my opinion and my profile, right. :)

Hey Michelle!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video:

Completing Your Account Set-up at WA - Adding a Description & Image


Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training:
Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)

If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Michelle!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)

P.S. If you have any doubts that this business is real or if it will work for you, check this little article out: Is This Business Even Real? When you see what companies are already involved in this business, it's going to be eye opening!
