About Stella45
Joined November 2018
Welcome to my profile....

A little bit more about me... I am living outside Phalaborwa South Africa in a conservancy called Grietjie... as an extension to the Kruger National Park with no fences in between. Living in the bush behind an electric fence around the house to literally keep the lions and elephants away from the front door. It is the only town at the border of the Kruger Nat Park in South Africa.

In my quest to help people I became a teacher and loved it but now being on the other side of 70 I entered a new phase I need a new life and challenges... it feels as if life is only now beginning.

Wealth Affiliate seems to be a community of honest sincere people with lots of information and are willing to assist with what I want to achieve..... Thank You!

The other reason I am here is to pay back a debt own to my family and friends made by someone else who needed money at the time. After I was drained they helped out but nothing came of promises and now I feel responsible.

I have a mission to pay back the debt and it does not matter how long is takes, I am sure to get there with the assistance of WA.
Though I am not from the generation born with genes for the tech era I have a very creative mind for patents. Have thought about many that in later years got on the market...
I feel very confident, with the help of WA and the community I will reach my goals.

Stella.

Much success.

Yes it is a privilege to stay here, we are getting so used to the elephants, lions and other animals so close around us.

I have a mission for sure and will follow it to the end, and only then I will fill my pockets.

Great success to you too

There is no greater gift than surrendering our life for others -- it is beyond noble.

WA offer us, Stella with a library of resources and tools that can help us achieve financial goals. But it's not easy, simple, or fast.

With time, a dedicated heart and mind along with a little perseverance. WA can help you to develop the necessary skill set to become successful in business.

Just know that I a here to help you in any way I can. And may the Heaven's open its doors for your success :)

Thank you very for your message Kevin, it means so much to me!

I live a compassionate life from childhood and never expect anything back ... do not know any other way.
I came home since I joined WA.
It adds a purpose to my life again.

The money is not really a factor for myself I have learned to live a life where I breath slowly, but I have another mission to accomplish. I have the time, dedication and determination it is just the skills that are missing.

If you don't mind may I take you up on your offer and pm you?Thank you for a wonderful message. It made my day!

I believe failure is just the process. I fail every day!! Just keep going!!!

For me, writing posts about my chosen niche brings me happiness and motivates me every day. I think it's because I'm focusing on my interest. I hope my story helps you too!

I'm a newbie in WA too. The best thing we can do here is to practise and ask questions whenever we want. Let's work hard together! The hardest part is always to start!! And I'm sure hard work pays off!!!

Wish you all the best in 2019:)

Hi Mark thank you for your message.

I believe failure is one of the tools of success. All the experience you gain from failure become part of the knowledge that makes success more sweat.
Is it the attitude in which you handle it that makes it a perfect tool. The way you treat failure makes you the winner.

You have the perfect niche if the posts just flows from your so to say pen.

I am a newbie too and still busy to complete my website ... a hard task for our generation ... lol

Keep in touch it will be good to see our progress.
All the best to you!

With our generation we learn new things other than playing electronic games. You will do great as you progress towards great goals.

I can not imagine having to have an electric fence around the house to keep the wild animals (four legged animals I assume) out. Must be an interesting life you are able to enjoy

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Successful and Exciting year in 2019.

Sorry for the delay, Stella.
I did not have the time to take a look at my patent and send you a copy. I guess making money and claiming rights is not my priority, after all. I have no excuses.
But it would be a shame to let opportunities go away because I'm happy smelling roses, so I added this to my task list.

Hi Stella,
I just joined today and hopefully this will help me generate business for both an affiliate program I bought into and may have been taken, and also our businesses in Costa Rica, AND I want to generate income to supplement my Social Security and Pension. I also am retired and just turned 73 years old. I play drums in a rock and roll band now and have since shortly after I retired. Love it. I was able to sit in with a band in Thailand and that is my profile pic. So, hope to follow your accomplishments over the upcoming years.
What convinced me to join was the amount of training. I work with computers and did in my working life, but Facebook advertising, etc. I am a newbie. I needed guidance, and when I saw I could build my own website, I was excited. So, since right now is supposed to be a slow time for affilate marketing, I am going to spend the time learning all I can, then methodically build my website and convert existing ones that we have here so that I don't have to turn in a ticket and wait a few days for the web people to do the work. I can do it myself.
As we say here in Costa Rica,
Pura Vida,

Rob

WOW, I love the lions I suppose that is why I'm a Leo he he.

In what you say you are so correct "Wealthy Affiliate seems to be a community of honest sincere people" , It is the most honest and best platform I have ever experienced and the membership fee is a pittance to what the platform offers,

On a closing note, I would like to thank you for following me and I wish you the best in all aspects of life.

I read a kind of a journey report of someone else and it helps to make sence for our newbies only a month into it ... we know it takes years but it gives us a guide to where we can be or should be.
Only if you are prepared too .....

The style I have is so totally different from the rest and my posts much shorter than the rest.
The letters can't be that long and I don't like the style of such long pages of info ... I ussually skim through the rumble of a 1000 words to get to what I need.
I know I am not playing the game and might not make money but that is how I feel .... please tell me and I am open to change for the better.
How would you monetize the posts ... it can be done but I would like to hear what you think....?

Hi Stella!
The training will teach you how to monetize your posts, I believe it comes in level 3.
Don’t be too impatient or you will miss some of the basics you need to continue to build sites once your first one is complete. Remember that we can have 25 websites!
Your style is your own so don’t apologize for it, just continue to write. In the beginning adding content is the main focus to build the habit of writing on a regular basis.
You are awesome, keep it up!

Hi Stella, Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I am sure you will pick up the threads of how this program works. Being a teacher you have the skills and understanding to pick everything up quite quickly. There is a live webinar every Friday night (canadian time) run by our official trainer in Jay Neill (rank 3) and you will see just how we interact with each other through the questions and answer that come forth throughout the 1 hour long webinar. If there is anything I can do to help you achieve your goals please feel free to contact me and I will be only to glad to help you. I have to tell you that I too am on the wrong side of 70 but we have people here in their 80's and 90's so you are in good company

Morning Stella - there is another lady from Africa that I communicate with and I would like to put the two of you in touch with one another. Would that be okay?
I am fortunately here in Aus as I get the webinar ar about 10.30am on a Saturday morning but don't worry - the webinars are always recorded and you can watch them at a more convenient time but if you could may be just watch one you would see all the comments that come in from the community. There are usually about 250-300 on that webinar and some of the comments are hilarious.
I will pm you and thank you for the congratulations
Carol

I have just sent you a PM and as you embark on this journey I will put forward some ideas for you and you can adopt them or not but we all need to help each other. My job as I see it is to encourage and support those who want and need support. It is hard doing this on ones own.
Take Care and Stay Safe

Stella, it is a humbling honor you have chosen me to follow, I am so thankful. I will follow you too. You have found a home Stella, I mean it. No place like it. Surrounded are loving people who want you to succeed. No doubt in my mind.

Welcome! You have a creative mind, You should have! After all, you got to be creative to live around lions and elephants. You are still here! =)

You are a special young lady! You were meant to be here and rise to the top. I have read and kept a poster made by my friend Denis Blanchard and I want to share it with you. No promotion of him in anyway but to share Stella I think you will love it as much as I do.

Here it is! Have it near you or maybe near your computer.

God Bless you and your dreams! I know you will achieve it.

Hi, Stella.

Thank you for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Wow! Crazy life! It must be wonderful waking up to the sights, sounds and smells of the Kruger National Park?

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hello there!!! And welcome to WA Premium. You won't regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Hi Stella, nothing wrong with a pen and paper to write info down. I am a show me person - show me and I know how to do it,
don' t just tell me. It's my preferred learning style. As a teacher you will know that. I also write the process down in my own words so I can go back and repeat the process. Hope you get a laptop soon just so it is easier to complete the training.
Ah ra best

Thank you Cathy!
Yes I love my notes.... so easy as a quick reference, no need to play the whole video if you only need a small detail.
I once had a membership which had a pdf manual that you could print. It was so handy to have it next to you to read through the process for a small change you want to make. When you want to refresh your memory you listen to the videos again and again.
Have a wonderful day.

Hello Stella And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

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

Thank you Robert I will definitely go to your posts and learn more.
The biggest problem I have is not having a laptop at this moment. If I had I could play the tutorials on the phone and do what I have to do on the site on the laptop.
At the moment I am jotting every step in a little booklet and then proceed. It has it's advantages for reference in the future but the time it takes makes me very impatient ... lol
Will succeed in the end.
Have a super day.

Hi Stella, welcome to WA and thank you for adding me to your network. It's good to meet you.

I know Phalaborwa ... not well, but I remember stopping by there when we (my parents and sister) would stop there on our way "down south" as we would often refer to our holidays to SA (my dad's aunt and uncle lived there).

Anyway, I do wish you every success in your quest, Stella. You're in the right place and will be well supported. Just shout out if you need help.

Take care and all the very best

Hi Stella,
You certainly have a goal in mind.
I wish you luck with it, and many hours of interesting learning and discussion.

Yes the techie part of the course can be a little difficult but there are many with great skills to help us along.

I just bet the noise from the other side of the fence is pretty loud and scary, inspect that fence daily for holes.....tee hee.....
