About Sonja S
Joined January 2014
A big howdy from Texas! I am loving the vibe of this community already and it fits so well with my down to earth personality. Well I guess I should share my story so here goes:

I am a go-getter, determined and love love love helping people maximize their potential in life. I have an Associates degree as a Respiratory Therapist but working 12-16 hour graveyard shifts is not the kind of life I envision once the kids and hubby finally shows up lol!

I currently have an online radio show and have big goals for 2014. So what brought me here? Glad you asked!

After moving to the big city of Dallas last Spring, I thought it was my new start. I had obtained a great job working M-F and absolutely loved it. Finally, on my way to living the American dream; NOT! Even though I had received a satisfactory evaluation two months earlier, colleagues loved me (except one), I was pulled in the office and was told my services were no longer needed. I was fired behind the lies of a superior who didn't like me and saw me as a threat.

I never have been fired in my life but it put things into perspective for me and the life I envisioned. It caused me to dig deep and have the courage to finally start living my dreams. I made the decision that I never want anyone to have such power over me and my future be in the hands of someone else.

So I started searching for legit work at home jobs and literally stumbled on this site. I really resonated with Kyle and thought, "this is doable." I am excited about this new chapter in my life. I am gifted, strong and have phenomenal focus. I look forward to this journey!

Welcome to the PREMIUM LEVEL of Wealthy Affiliate:

Hello my name is Ken (sag3), since becoming a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate myself. I have found the unparalleled training right from my own home. There was a lot to learn in the in the first level of Kyle’s training. Today you have just taken a new step into your future.

Before I hold you up on your extended training I just want to point out a few thing about me since I became a Premium Member. Like you I was skeptical until I started seeing some results. Then the results kept on growing. I even took a few days off in the first month just to see what would happen.

Guess what happened. One of the websites I created within Wealthy Affiliate went onto the front page of Google. That site has had days in the #1 spot more than once. The only thing to knock it out? A video I made using the Wealthy Affiliate training. All I did was follow the training. Guess I can live with that.

If you get lost or stuck. PM me or use the community within WA.

Welcome to the Premium Level.
Keep Up the HARD Work and you too will be on top.

Here is to Our Success!!

KEN (sag3)

Welcome to WA. Hope you find it as helpful as I have. Best $47 I spend every month. Since you just became premium I share key bit of wisdom. Key to success is to learn failure is good probably better than being successful. I fail at least 9 times a month but I win at least once a month. That's a 10% success rate. All winners lose alot. That's why so few rich people. Most give up after first loss. Failure weeds out the weak so only the strong survive. Hope you see your first monthly payment is worth it just for that golden nugget of info. Sure alot pay a $20 just to be given most important piece of advise.

Hi Sonja, Thanks for the follow, and although I am leaving hopefully for a short time, I am making the choice to follow you as well. I am making a list of those that “are following me and/or I am following” so that if and when (hopefully last quarter of this year) I will be able to follow you again at that time. In the meantime all the best here at WA, a great place, a great program, and an awesome community group. ~ Daniel

Hi Steve! Thanks for checking up on me. I believe I am doing well. I am watching the videos and really enjoying the step-by-step process. I am about to start training Lesson 8, so it's getting fun!

I see an urgent need for individuals wanting to start their own home-based business. So I would like to help people in that area.

I chose Virtual Assistant as my niche. My focus is on educating those who desire to start their journey as a VA. I love blogging and have background in this area. I feel great!

Cheers Sonja and that's a great niche! There is always a demand for VAs and it's an excellent way to start bringing in some case from home. A resource site on how and where to get started would be great to have!
