About Sugarbird
Joined January 2014
Hi fellow WA's, and thanks for visiting my profile! I'm "Sugarbird" - real name Patti Saunders Mays. My husband and I live in Boise, Idaho where we are ever-so-joyfully retired from the stress and pressure of corporate life.

We are both 67 years old, happily married for 33 years and yep, we’re retired, but honestly, I think I’m busier now that I’ve ever been! I’m certainly the happiest! I work from home (it’s the best, and those corny testimonials are true! You really can work in your pajamas! I guess that’s important to some)

I'M OFTEN ASKED... "WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?"

Well, you know. . . I do what all retired people do: Sit in a rocking chair most of the day in my giant white cotton underpants and T-shirt that says "Greetings from Yellowstone Park." I eat saltine crackers & squirt cheese, and watch "Days of Our Lives." HA! Ok, that's an exaggeration: I hate squirt cheese and don't have a Yellowstone T-shirt.

Back to real. I work just about every day on my various projects which are 1) My “That Retired Lady” blog and newest venture; 2) My beloved 4-year-old Great Cooking Ideas website, and 3) Promoting & marketing my eBook, "Was It Something I Said?" It's about how we alienate ourselves socially by things we say and do without even knowing it.

We have one daughter who's the love our lives. She's grown now and living in another state working on her Masters Degree. We have a big family and we all love to laugh, so get-togethers are fun and fast- moving. And we have 3 beloved dogs; all spoiled rotten and important members of our family.

Other than that... we have lots of interests (too many!). Our big passion is traveling - especially cruises - and we do that regularly, as often as we can afford it. We love our home, friends, family, entertaining, live theater, movies, good food, and we LOVE summertime on our wonderful patio. My husband is crazy mad for Harley Davidsons, and my hobbies are writing, cooking, gardening, and decorating.

Our life is simple-but-full, and we feel incredibly blessed and fortunate to have each other, our family, health, and happiness.

Hello Patti and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!! My name is Scott and I am here to help you get started making money online. Before you even think about making money though I want to let you know about a few things that is critical to your success here at WA.

1. You are building a business and this will take quite some time. You are not going to see success overnight or in a week. It will happen but you need to work really hard at this and devote some time to it each day.

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.

4. If you want to have a successful website that is going to get ranked for lots of awesome low competition keywords. You are going to need a keyword research tool that is reliable, accurate, and is always up to date. With Jaaxy you will get all of this, and so much more.

5. Try to not get discouraged or overwhelmed because there is lots of information for you to learn here. There is plenty of help here within the community so if you ever get stuck or need any help pop over to live chat and ask questions.
