About Shelley8492
Joined August 2013
My name is Shelley.

I am a 9.5 year veteran of the Coast Guard. I have almost always worked as an independent contractor after that, so joining Wealthy Affiliate fit perfectly for me after leaving the service.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate 5 years ago and started earning my online entrepreneurship certification. I liked that everything is spelled out step by step and you can progress at your own speed. Someone is always there to help when you need it. My first website was about flower photography. I love to photograph nature - butterflies, bugs, birds and flowers. However, I discovered I love to take photos, not explain the technical aspects of how I did it, so I learned I wasn't very passionate about writing about it.

In late 2015, I started with the affiliate bootcamp and now in 2017, I'm getting ready to launch a site about my rescue dog, Trixie. Now she is something I am passionate about! I take dozens of photos and love to talk about her. We share reviews about toys, treats and food she has tried and offer information on health issues and tasty dog treat recipes. And after that, since I love gardening, I might create a website on how not to garden. Since moving to AL, I haven't had much luck in the garden department!

If you're ready to make money from home, doing something you are passionate about, just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the left side.

Hello Shelley and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous WA experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training, but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Greetings! Shelley,

A much belated thanks for the follow. I have reciprocated in kind. I spent much of my time as an Independent Contractor, too, most recently in mystery shopping and merchandising, but also in some of the trucking jobs for (O/O) owner operators. It's nice to be connected with you. Hope you're doing well and I look forward to getting to know you better in the future. Much success and blessings sent your way.

Hello Shelley, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). 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. See you around, Greetings Loes

Going to look at that checklist. Was going to make one, but you may have saved me time.

Shelley, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Shelley.

So glad you're feeling better and that you're ready to get back in the saddle. I wish you much success.

I stopped by your profile after reading your link to the Star Tribune article on the woman raising butterflies...that is so cool!

By the way, the link to your website isn't working. :-(

Thanks for the info on my site. Not sure why it isn't working. I did just do some updates the other day. I'll check it out. Appreciate it.

Funny, when I typed it in directly it worked. Checked my DNS settings, they are ok. This isn't a new site, so I don't know what's going on.

Ta Da! Looked at the link under my profile and it was missing the period between www and flower. Duh. Works fine now if you would like to take a look. Not sure how that got changed. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated in awhile, but the photo techniques are still good and there are some pretty photos in the gallery.

Hi Shelley, Welcome, I saw your post on Share your beautiful content asking about snowballing. Check out Dave Ramsey's money makeover book. I have found his no nonsense guides to paying down debt to be quite inspiring and on point. If you Google him you can probably get good info online w/o buying the book or workbook but can also probably get a used copy on Amazon. I have been in a deep hole myself after a divorce but dug myself out.

I did glance over Dave Ramsey's snowballing technique. I can see his point on clearing out small balances first to provide motivation.

Thanks to all who have followed me recently. I apologize for not saying hello. I am recovering from surgery and I haven't been on WA in awhile. I'm trying to get back into it and got the basics and set up on my site completed so I can go forward. I am ready to pick up my lessons again and get this going. I'll try to check in with you in the next couple of weeks.

Hey Shelley,

I was just reading your comment here:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/raziela#comment_724910

Not sure how Raziela's account has your first name unless it's a coincidence?!?

If there is something wrong then let me know, otherwise I hope all is well and that you have a great week ahead :)

Hello Shelley, i read you bio about how you didn't look up WA to see if it was a scam, well i want to reassure you that it is NOT by asking you to watch 2 videos on YouTube by Ian Pribyl which is a member of this site also and i honestly believe that WA is legit.

His name on here is (pribs) and the 2 videos on YouTube are (type in)

Thanks. I did some research after I joined, and eased my mind to the extent I could, but a good scam be just that, good, and hard to detect. I'm so desperate to make more money than my job can provide and get ahead a bit, that I put the cart before the horse on this one. My site should go live soon and we'll see. I was just thinking last night that it would be good to view some of the others' websites.
