Hi, I’m Emily Ullrich. I’m a Communication Guru. I say that because after graduating undergrad with a degree in Film & Television from Savannah College of Art & Design, I went on to work as a Script Reader in NYC, as well as work on a number of films, television shows, and commercials. I went on to get a masters degree in Communication Arts from Antioch University, and continued to work in a number of media jobs, including writing a screenplay which was a quarterfinalist in Scriptapalooza, and making a short film that was shown in the Marches du Filme in the Cannes Film Festival. I also wrote, directed, and produced a documentary film, the short version of which won the Bill & Melinda Gates Viewchange Changemakers Award. Soon after, I became a Professor at University of Cincinnati, and then a full time Professor at Georgia Southern University and The Art Institute of Cincinnati. Chasing my dreams, I moved, by myself to Kenya, where I founded a nonprofit organization to teach filmmaking in the slums of Nairobi. I worked with other NGO’s in a number of roles, teaching Filmmaking and Sex & Sexuality to the young women and boys of Boxgirls Kenya, Kibera Messengers (where I still serve as Director of Girls’ Empowerment), and more. I was lucky enough to meet Auma Obama (former President Obama’s half-sister) on numerous occasions, including at the Nomadic Arts Festival, where I taught photography to people from all around the African diaspora. But throughout all of this, I was the one who was learning. I learned so much about humanity, cultural assimilation, love, and relationships of all kinds.

Since high school, I was always kind of an outcast, fascinated by others and how we interacted with each other, human behavior in general. I was also writing about myself and others since this time, and served as Editor of the award-winning high school newspaper. To this day, I write, and am published regularly.

After living all around the country, and in Kenya and Tanzania, I found myself alone, in my thirties, living with my mother in Kentucky. After four bouts of Malaria and one with Typhoid Fever, I had to return to the US. My health has never recovered fully, I still struggle with chronic health problems and the medical system. Being an adventurous person by nature, I began researching and writing on the topic, having my work published regularly. I have become a patient advocate, and in all of these situations I’ve found that to get the care I need, to find new friends and fresh ambition, to find my husband, to have followed my dreams to the corners of the earth, my true talent is communicating and helping to navigate and achieve their goals; with themselves, in work, in life, in love, and in relationships of all kinds.

Now, I help people find their dream jobs, I coach men in wooing their girlfriends and wives, finding love, making love, I coach women in the same arenas, I coach patients and caregivers in getting and giving the best care possible, I help people to find their passions in life and achieve them, I help people of all ages in all areas of lives, helping them to achieve their goals. I donate a significant portion of my income to the Girls’ Empowerment Program in Kenya, which along with many other things, provides girls and young women with feminine hygiene products, so that they can stay in school and remain healthy when they get to puberty.

A quite interesting profile, Emily.

Hi and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, a community of like-minded entrepreneurs helping each other succeed in their online business, and where your writing skills - as you'd soon discover - constitute an asset.

I hope you have a great time, and achieve your goals here, as well.

Welcome aboard!

Hope you're finding your way around okay and enjoying your first 24 hours here at WA.

I wanted to stop in today to say Hi and give you a bit of direction just in case you're feeling the slightest bit stuck or overwhelmed.

Everything begins with the “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate - The Online Entrepreneur Certification Training. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

I know there can be a lot to take in and a common question I see asked is what "the business" involves.

While the training explains everything in detail, the "big picture" so to speak is this...

We learn to generate traffic through search engines (there are other ways we do this but to start we want search engine traffic). That's because search engine traffic is "free"... and it's also traffic that is coming to you, from people who are already searching for something.

In other words, you are not selling or trying to convince people they need something. They are already searching for something and the training is going to show you not only how to get this traffic but how to earn an income from it (this is the same training I've taken and it has given me tens of thousands of visitors each month).

The primary way we earn money is through affiliate commissions. These are commissions paid to you when someone who was searching for a product (or even searching for help with something) comes to your website and makes a purchase through one of your affiliate links.

I'm probably over-complicating my explanation here but the training will show you each step you need to follow :-)

The amazing part about all of this though is that your traffic and commissions come in whether you're online or not. You can be out buying groceries or even sleeping (the internet does not sleep, and your traffic comes in 24/7) :-D

It does NOT happen overnight though... meaning this is NOT a get rich quick scheme.

But as long as you're following the training, taking action and getting help when you need it (we are all here to answer your questions and provide guidance along the way)... it does happen.

Anyway... that's the basic gist of how it works.

It goes...

[Internet traffic] >> [your website] >> [affiliate offers]... and then you earn commissions.

Now, that's the simple version. Once you have traffic there are many more ways you can earn money but I just wanted to explain the "big picture" just in case you haven't reached that part of the training yet.

I think it's in lesson 4 where the process of building your business online is explained, as well as how to go about choosing the direction (or niche) you want your business to go in. You will have your very own niche website up and running.

Another challenge some people have is being a little shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. Don't worry...

I can assure you there are no major mistakes you can make. In fact, mistakes are encouraged. Mistakes are how we learn... and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

As you begin your journey it's all about LEARNING. It's not about "hitting it out of the park" from the start or getting it just perfect.

I can't count how many mistakes I've made along the way (and still make), or how many times I've had to go back and figure out where I went wrong... but I'm still here and despite my stumbles and screw ups, I earn my income online today :-)

Just in case you haven't made it to the course yet, here's the link... (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, once you get rolling through the training, you are going to see your business take shape very quickly.

Again... if you ever need a hand with anything at all please ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below.

I do my best to check in here a few times each day so I'll be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

Talk soon :-)

J-KWest,

Thank you so much for your very insightful message. In fact, you answered some of my questions already, and guided me in the right direction! I tend to jump in full throttle, but get easily distracted and disoriented with all of the options, interactions, and posts. I truly appreciate your time and help, and I’m sure I’ll be coming to you with questions any day. I look forward to taking the next step in this journey and connecting with you along the way.
Best,
Emily

No problem, I know there's a lot going on here and like you say, it can be disorienting with all the options (which is of course better than having no options) so I always like to send out a quick message that touches on some of the more common questions I get (which are some of the questions I also had when I joined).

Hope all is well :-)

Just popping in with a quick heads up about how and where to access help at Wealthy Affiliate.

First of course is to hit reply to any of my messages or leave me a message on my profile. There are also comment threads underneath each training module.

At the top of your Wealthy Affiliate screen you'll notice a search bar where you can find answers to many of your questions, and along the left hand side there are buttons for [Live Chat] and [Help Center]. Premium members also have access to private messaging which is great for one-on-one coaching and personal topics.

As always, let me know if there's anything I can help with and I'll touch base again shortly :-)
