About Sibyll
Joined October 2014
Having been around the world several times but never able to save, I am now looking at retirement straight in the eye and thinking oh my, what will I do for extra income?

Creating an online business, that's what! And having fun doing it! Ok, that should read - creating an online business again: way back in the internet middle ages (1997), I had a small mail order business, which went quite well and which I wanted to expand online. In Germany, at that time, nobody, but nobody put their trust in buying something online, let alone something for their cat - my business was called "The practical cat - exclusive gifts for the cat lover". So, yes, I was way ahead of my time, both in terms of the online business and of the then just starting craze of pet accessories.

Anyway, my day job (classical music management) was taking up my days and nights so there was no time to pursue the online venture. Now the internet world has changed completely - easier in some ways but so much more complex in others. So now I am looking forward to learning from and contributing to the WA community!
Sibyll's Goals 3
Money Goals
I am willing to invest as much time as necessary in order to achieve my goal of running a successful, i. e. money making website. As a long time freelancer, I know that might mean much more than the conventional 40 hours a week. As for how much i would like tomake - enough to pay off my debts and set up a comfortable monthly income stream.

You are certainly right, the quantity and quality of time one is able to devote to the program depends on how well things are working out.

Greetings Zenaida,
You have one of the most professional sites around!

When I'm able to make some extra money with my site, I'd like to follow the guidelines specified in the book you contributed to: “65 Things to Do When You Retire: Travel”.

Onward to the next adventure......

Sibyll, thanks for the follow.
Reading your profile it looks like you've got a bit of understanding of this online marketing stuff already. Good for you.
Being able to survive the dot com which as we all know now and the dot bomb era, is always encouraging for everyone.
I can recall that I just started to explore online marketing .... about a year before implosion of the don com's. :(

Oh well, live and learn. Now we are all in the right place and in very good hands with Kyle and Carson.

Thank you for following me. Retirement is EXACTLY the reason I'm here. I have a lot of expensive habits (all crafting, photography, reading, travel, etc) yet I was so ready to leave my job. This is perfect.
I love your site (zenaida.travel). Looks like you've been at this a while. I wanted to leave a comment (they're good for google) but didn't see a place. I also got an error message when I hit the "where" link. I'm bookmarking this. Have you been to Greece? ~Debbi
Reply
Sibyll Premium
Hi Debbi, thanks for letting me know about the error message - there should have been a dropdown menu with all sorts of countries (that I have visited). The comment section is after the photos and at the very end. Your remark leads me to think that I should place the comments higher up. I have been to Greece, but not recently. Have a lovely weekend!

Oh dear, yes, that was a bit pessimistic, wasn't it - apologies if I have upset anyone; there are also many great problem solvers in the world and they have not done badly in the bigger scheme of things. Now world leaders are getting together more often, so there is real hope for the future.

I think there are a few of us here with those thoughts in mind, Sibyll! Mine came about not by travelling, but having a bunch of kids and being dedicated to seeing them safely into adulthood, and now they are fine and I am thinking - oops - forgot about the nest egg! They are lovely and would look after me, but I don't want them to have to do that - the world is much more complicated for them than it was for us, and I don't want them using up their resources - who knows, they may have to burrow into the ground, or take off to space to survive the future - not normally so pessimistic, but thank goodness I still have a brain and there is WA for me to get excited about, and get that nest egg happening. Don't look at my start date - been here before but been away and inactive until a few weeks ago. Npw just mulling about my website and trying to get the courage to get one up, but also getting very inspired by the awesome members here!
Anyway, I am convinced that with dedication and application of all the lessons and information here, we are in the right place at the right time. Here's to your inevitable success!
