About Sylvies
Joined September 2017
I’m a bit of a nomad. I grew up in UK, my dad having emigrated from Jamaica and falling in love with an English woman stayed in the UK to make life easy for her. Family life wasn’t all roses and I left school with nothing. I fell in love over a mug of soup and married a year later after my 19th birthday.

Five years later my hubby got an overseas job working with British Aid for the Solomon Island Govt; I got to work as a volunteer for one hour per day [expats were not allowed to take a local person’s possible job, unless you are more qualified] teaching as an unqualified teacher at a local school in a Kindergarten class of 72 children.

After seven wonderful, joyful years in the Islands we had to return to the UK.

I went to Tech for a year to get some basic qualifications in Maths and English to enter Uni.

Once I had my basic entrance for Uni, we emigrated to Perth WA. My hubby got a position at the main hospital within a week and I went to Uni for 4yrs to become a fully qualified teacher with honours [that was tough – learning to study, my head hurt the first year from the brain exercise]. I taught for three years in Perth, WA.

2001, we returned to the Islands! There had been a civil war and the Aussie govt warned expatriats not to return or visit but we had an opportunity [that’s another story] and there we were once again. My hubby returned to working at the local hospital as Chief Pharmacist as requested by the local people. We started a primary school, trained teachers to run it and admin staff so it became properly locally funded, with all students graduating in the top 10% to get a place in the very limited spaces of high school. Solomon Islands became our home and the people our family.

Christmas 2009, we returned to Perth, WA. My hubby couldn’t get work so we moved to South Australia [SA] where he now works in a SA hospital. I taught in a local school for 5 years.

So, I thought - What shall I do now? – maybe I should try to work online . . . and here I am.

Thank you Sylvia for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Thank you, Rob. I had a sneaky look a few days ago when I saw you offer help to another WA. I also had a fleeting quick look at Jaaxy but didn't open it because it has a 30 day free offer and I didn't want to waste my free days to look at it until I need it. They seem to differ in user friendliness - right? I used the WA keyword tool for choosing my Niche but I didn't go very deep just brushed the surface. I will take a closer look at the attached link. Thank U.

They are both user friendly but Jaaxy offers many more bells and whistles, perfect for people who really want to dive deep into keyword research.

On the other hand the WA keyword tool is streamlined to providing the same robust keyword research as Jaaxy but without the extra features. Both are programmed the same exact way but display their results differently.

Hello Sylvskin,
I enjoyed reading your profile especially about all the places you have lived. That is very interesting and exciting to me. As for me, I grew up in the U.S. I lived in Alabama until I married & moved to Wisconsin, where I have lived ever since. I love traveling so your profile sounds wonderful!
Welcome to the Community here at WA. I am still learning, but if I can help in any way, please just ask.

Thank you for the compliment Barbara, I love traveling too. I see you've travelled around the States. I've only been to the States once when my hubby had to speak at a Christian Pharmacy Conference in Colarado. That was breathtaking both in scenery and breathing - apparently something to do with the altitude. Thank you for offering your help, please ask me too if you think there's something I can help you with. Together we conquer!

Thank you, Barbara. You obviously are a committed and hard worker. You don't get to be a manager by sitting on your laurels. That should stand you in good success here in WA. Wishing you much success.

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! :)

It's better than I had hoped, thank u Kyle.

I have several ideas for my Niche. I love teaching, apple products and Solomon Islands; Plus my hubby - almost at our 40th and still very much in love very much. Could write a blog on 'how to stay in love', starting with how we met. 'Teaching Creatively' - It's what my teacher friends say I do best & students too - 'It's fun in your class' or 'Time goes fast'. . . . I used Apple products in class a lot and added Solomon culture just for fun, so maybe it could work. I did a keyword search and the QSR is 382. Google only brings up one page worth of links. Creative thinking is all the buzz at the moment and has become a curriculum requirement in Australia but many teachers are finding it difficult to implement because they are busy meeting all the must do requirements first.

I could add the WA product for technology in class, as you commented a few hours ago - 'any age student could take advantage of this Ed here and I could invite teachers to join free to check it out' [in the making money online discussion]. Should I wait until I do WA Bootcamp after I finish the certification course to offer the WA program, so I can get commission for it?

Yes, I would go through food camp if you are serious about promoting Wealthy Affiliate. In the meantime focus on the certification training.

If you have a group for an audience or someone that you know that you could recommend WA to, you can do that in the meantime (simply use your WA link).

Thank you Kyle, that is very kind of you. I really do appreciate you taking the time to ask.

Wednesday, I was really surprised to receive some concrete training for the 3k spent. Today I have been skimming through the silver material and tomorrow the gold just to give them the benefit of the doubt; feel a bit guilty saying no to the coach; But to move on would mean parting with another 37k AUD . . . and advocating a front end product to my friends in the third world [we were workers overseas]. Once they saw my photo or promotional video associated, they would buy in the HOPE . . . - no can't go there. Plus others I wouldn't know about . . .

Late yesterday evening and into the very early hours of today I started surveying the WA materials both in the Affiliate Bootcamp and Own Online Business - Wow!!! In comparison, WA is highly educational and easy to understand - KISS. You make it look simple but I know that the art of simplicity takes work.

I think I will do the own business first [need to know what I'm promoting] though I almost want to try to do both because Bootcamp sounds so interesting. For five years I've been working 7am till midnight or 2am, teaching and deputy principal roles. So I need something to get my teeth into. Hope to decide tomorrow.

Traffic - I was being recommended to have $500-1k per week for traffic. Is that what is expected in WA?

Could the WA annual event move to a Pacific island one year nearer Australia - ha ha ha? Lived and worked 15yrs in the islands, with a 10yr break in between, not by our choice. Loved every minute. Built a school instead of a house. Trained staff and now it runs itself.

Anyway better get some shut eye.

Absolutely save your money. You get WAY more for $359 per year here than you will get within any other service, including one that is charging you $40K.

As for your traffic, you should not be spending that sort of money, in particular when starting out. That is actually horrible advice that you should not be taking and the fact you are getting this advice, should be a helpful decision in determine where you want to start a business.

Before you get into page traffic, you first want to understand SEO. This is a free form of traffic and your going to be very well versed in this before you know it.

And we do a live event in Vegas every year and this is for our affiliate Boot Camp (affiliates of WA). It is free to attend and we pay for all of your expenses to go if you reach the criteria. Perhaps something that you would be interested in down the road. :)
