About Stakier
Joined January 2018
Hi! I'm 56 years old. I am a live-in caretaker for my 76 year old mother. I have a dream of starting my own business. My mother needs 24/7 care. I love my mother and I love my dream. I've never done anything like this before! I am WAY out of my comfort zone!! But I'm taking a leap of faith here...
Something about this feels "right". I love the family atmosphere this business has. Offering all you do for free is a " miracle". I'm dead broke just looking for a way to make some money from home online. Thank you so much for this opportunity!!!!

Hi Sherri, It was interesting to read your bio. I also was caregiver to my parents. Dad died at 89 and was with us for 10 years before he died and then Mom was with us for 20 years until she emigrated to New Zealand at 92 where she died at the age of 96.
It is not easy to be a carer, as much as one loves the person, it is very taxing and my heart goes out to you.
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You will find a lot of people willing and able to encourage and help you along the way.
Blessings,
Jill

HI Sherri, Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, I do hope you are going to love this new venture. There is so much help in this wonderful community. Also was caretaker for my mother until she emigrated to New Zealand at the age of 92 to be with my eldest sister. She died over there at the age of 96. Now have my husband in Frail Care, he has a brain disease.
All the best,

Thank you for following me. I'm following you back. I'm sorry to hear about your husband. It's not easy taking care of loved ones who are ill. It's a blessing for us to be able to have our loved ones with us instead of in a hospital. But challenging! Your Mom was 96? That's a long life. Bless her.
I admire your dedication to your family. I look forward to hearing more from you.
Have a great day!

Your message touches me.

My father has to take care of my mother 24/7 and it may be the most difficult thing in the world to do because he never gets to leave.

I have tried to talk my dad into having someone else watch my mother for even one day so he can get a break.

His only break is when I come over and take him to breakfast every other month.

They have to live off Social Security and I don’t know how they do it.

My mother had a severe stroke which is why they are in this situation now.

I have also had a stroke which I have fully recovered from but this has made me see things differently now.

One of my websites I created has a section about caregivers and I am hopeful that someday, there will be more options for people like you and my father.

I am so thankful that you are doing your best to improve your life and I absolutely agree that this is the place to do it.

Just remember one thing. This will take some time and hard work but will it be worth it in the end? YES!

Your Friend,
Rick

Yes, WAU is GREAT!

This platform comes with a steep learning curve, I know there is a lot of moving parts to what we do here at WAU, but please complete all of the Get Started Here lessons as they are designed to help you build your new career on a firm foundation. Once your website is fully functional is the best time to promote, promote and promote some more.

I am working on 5 different websites now along with several books in production, down from the 19 websites I was working when I first joined WA! Piece o cake!

The website you are working on will not be your only one. As you progress with your new career, the work will be easier and easier. So much so that you will be helping other members with their questions.

Best regards,

Keisi.
PS
While you are growing your new career do not forget to have fun!

Welcome, Sherri. I've been a part of Wealthy Affiliate for a little over a year now, and it still feels like home. Make sure to take in everything that's available, just make sure to pace yourself.

Here's something that may provide some inspiration:

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Sherri? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

Awesome Sherri, I know you are going to really love Premium and going forward and as you work through the training, you are going to make some wonderful progress.

Remember, success is the result of "action" and "hard work". Everything else you have here at WA to facilitate you along the way, and if you add those two items to the mix you are going to do very well! :)

PS. I hope you have a very nice, relaxing and enjoyable weekend! :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thank you Kyle. It just so happens I was having a little difficulty on my niche. I got help and decided to go with "Reptiles". Have a great day.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "reptiles" do you want to help people out with? What type of reptile?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Kyle, I'm raising two red eared slider turtles. I'm new at this and it's been fun. I thought there might be other's interested in red eared slider turtles also. Do you think I should go with red eared sliders or maybe dry dock piers? Thank you.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Sherri!

Stakier Premium
Kyle, Thanks for your reply and the support. I appreciate it. So, how do I go about changing the website from My Reptile Site to Dry Dock Piers? Thank you. Sherri
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would build a new site. I wouldn't try to change the overall theme of the website from one niche to another. If you want to change your niche, head here and build a brand new website:

Thank you. By the way do you suggest going with red eared sliders or dry dock piers? I'm thinking dry dock piers might be too narrow of a niche? Thank you for your help it is very much appreciated.

I am not sure what either are? lol

Thank you for your response. I went with red eared slider turtles. I'm aiming for new turtle owners. They might not even know what dry dock piers are. we'll see...

You can have as many websites as you want as time goes on, it is likely that your first website will not be your last but do know that it only takes ONE website/niche to be very successful online.

PS. I hope you have nothing short of an amazing week Sherri! :)
