About TAltman

Hello

I am Terri...I am 55 and began looking for a way to add to my income and life. In September 2015 I lost my part-time job. It wasn't much, just a few hours a week to supplement my disability income. As a result I had raised my standard of living just enough to feel the pinch when I became unemployed. My job prospects were limited. So my internet search began and what a trip it has become! I honestly thought "how hard can it be to make a few dollars with my computer?" I mean I have a fairly nice laptop, a spare room that I can use as work space and time...quite a bit of time on my hands. I wasn't looking for a "get rich quick scheme" I just wanted to make enough money to be comfortable again. Well here I am nearly 6 months later and I have learned a few things since then. And I was becoming disillusioned to say the least. I think I may be one of the lucky ones though, so far I am only out about $75. 00, I have managed to avoid a lot of the scams I have stumbled across but I have lost a little and quite a bit of time. I refused to give up I believed that there had to be something out here, people are earning money from the internet and I wanted a little piece of it. I felt a bit helpless after I lost my job, I knew that I didn't want to feel that way for to much longer so I didn't give up. I kept researching, I was just about to throw in the towel until this weekend. Over time it finally became clear to me that I just had no clue what Internet Marketing was. Blogging and Website creation had become my nemesis. Yet from all that I had discovered those two things are basic requirements to an online income. I got to where even the word Affiliate caused me to grit my teeth in frustration. I was totally intimidated and wanted so badly to just quit. But I couldn't. And then this weekend I kept coming across this program called WordPress at the time I didn't even know it was a program. I punched the word into Google and found out. I had also stumbled into a Blog about Blogs, and at first I was even more intimidated. But I kept plugging along and taking notes and some how I have ended up here, at Wealthy Affiliate and there was that word again "affiliate". But after just a few minutes on this site I began to think that maybe, just maybe I have finally found a place to get the answers to so many of my unanswered questions, maybe I have found the help I so desperately need. So here I am. Ready to learn, with a re-opened mind. Wish me luck!

I can understand what you mean. I myself is looking for a way to pay off my debt and start doing some major saving. I am 53 and my current job will not get me to where i want to be and that is debt free and free to make my own schedule. I believe that WA will open some doors for me. Keep your head up and stay encourage.

Thanks for the follow. The training you will get at WA will definitely put you in the right direction. Just about everyone of my sites or landing pages I state what you have found out. The most common reason someone fails at online marketing is the lack of knowledge about online marketing.

Good luck.

Honored to follow & humbled to be followed by you herein @ WA Terri. Thank You!
Being relatively new here as well myu only advice is to 'use the tools' provided because WA is far-&-away the best one-stop shop along the webbed route to success(es) via an online presence.
My forte' is in the 'functional wellness' arena wherein we strengthen from within to flourish throughout via natural and holistic means. We just believe there is a better way! My initial site, and focus will be focused on these opportunities. If you've a moment - give it a look, I will appreciate the gesture.
Wishing you and yours well on our journey. Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

Just reread your 'Bio' Terri and I want to inspire you in only one regard for now - Don't quit! We are here to "do today what a majority won't so we can do tomorrow what that majority can't." Persevere and you will be pleased you went through the doubtful days. I believe the climb - even the several moments where it seems easier to just turn around and go back to where it is we're from - is well worth the hell paid when the view from the top can be seen. Best part about all this is each can choose the height of the peek that suits each of us.
Stay positive, stay hungry, and if you haven't done so ... Discover your WHY and post it all over where you can see it. It will serve to 'feed' the hunger and you'll recall 'why' it is you're here.
If you want some more immediate kudos just look at your numbers. at 1894 in Rank you are in the Top 85 percentile even here at WA. All that in a mere month. Wow -- Don't look back.
I've another thought for you too. Do you know why it is that people have a tendency to 'talk about you behind your back?; It is because they are "behind" you! Keep 'em there, they only want you back in the fold of doubters and nonbelievers.
Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

... Ever Forward, DJ

Welcome to WA, TAlman
You don’t need luck; WA is a full service Affiliate program. Remember, amateurs built the ark wherein, the professionals built the Titanic. All that is required is, that you complete the courses, and take advantage of the 24/7 live support teams. Income is proportional to effort, and the amount of time you put in.

Hi Terri,
my name is Sylvia, and I have to say that I am kinda where you are! I started in late Dec. and was taking it day by day, as I am not savvy to the internet much. I have a regular job, and spend time with my grandchildren a couple days of the week, but when I am working on my new business, it sometimes dosent make sense.
I am sure it is easy as many people say, however, I can't seem to connect the dots. lol.
Anyway I wish you luck. Pursue it, you will be successful at it, stay focused, that's what I keep telling myself. My goal is to be making at least 2k a week by July. And I will make it! Feel free to PERSONAL MESSAGE me anytime, and if I can support you or help you out, please reach out, and I will reciprocate as well.
Have a great weekend.!

Terri, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Terri.

Thank you so much your help is invaluable to me, you have a great help to me several times! And now here I am asking more questions.
I added the 3 pages for my themes, the page titles are in alphabetical order and I really don't like it that way. I don't know how to edit my titles so the pages show up in the order I want them to be in.
I really don't know how to begin editing my pages, add pictures and such. Are there lessons on this or should i be going to WordPress with my editing questions?
Again I thank you for sharing your valuable time with me!

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Welcome! I hope you're ready for a lot of learning, a lot of amazing support, and making your way up to making way more than you need. hehehe. Because this place is the best place you could be. You've got this, from one disabled woman to another, making only 173 monthly because I got married to a man who works. I'm keeping just enough on my card to reup premium, because I've seen it work, Its working for me, just not making the money yet, and that's fine because I've taken my time to make sure I learn.. you'll meet millionaires here who started out just like you and me. I had a membership once before, but lost it as I didn't put in the time and effort it takes nor did I have the time with everything I was doing that month, and couldn't afford to upgrade.. but it's so the best thing that's ever happened to me and the ONLY legit and REAL way and incredibly cheap way to learn everything there is to know to become a literal millionaire. but it does NOT happen overnight so take your time ok? don't give up.. be too stubborn its sososososo worth it. I'm here if you need ANY help, ok? Don't ever feel alone or discouraged getting stuck... It happens to me all the time. Lol. You've got this girl! I'll talk to you soon, as you're now in my network (MY WA FAMILY)

Oh gosh, I've already had a few as well.. It's normal, Shows how much we want this. Alarms on your phone help...There are amazing and free task apps. I'm oldschool and use a lot of to-do lists and filing .. I dont use much computer office stuff to document, I write like we used to before an "app" was invented. LOL. Either way.. Lists... alarms.. LABELED folders for each subject. And definitely an organizor of any kind. Any of these can be found in your home somewhere. If you're good at crafts, should be difficult. If you have a timer on anything.. use it for time management. Big deal. I used to spend a literal week on here.. no sleep. Drove me into quite an emotional wreck... I'd end up sleeping (crashing) for three straight days, making everyone worried sick.. But we really want and deserve this. .. As I said from experience.. take your time, you WILL make your money back and thousands more. We just can't jump into anything and expect to just make money.. Just like any training university, we have to learn the skills, then we can pay the bills. You can do this on time... What are you have problems with ??? Wordpress is a MESS, I could be a support mentor-type team with you honey? I'm HERE.

Jess,

Thank you so much! We do have a lot in common, I do 12-14 hours here and then crash for 2-3 days...getting better at the time thing, less hours straight and then less crash days. lol And as for the office management things...I take tons of notes and file them just like the old days...it works for me. :)
Actually I think I made it over the hump, although I have some more things I want to do to them I did publish my first 3 pages the other day. And got them indexed by Google so I must have done something right. Now to just finish them and move on to the next lesson.
Thank you again for reaching out to me, it means so much and your encouragement is just awesome! You hang in there too, we will get this accomplished no sweat!

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! :)

Hello Steve,
Thank you for keeping touch. I have decided to become an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate. I am excited at the possibilities involved. However I am having some trouble writing my getting started page, I just don't know how to write something original. If you have any suggestions I would really love to hear them.
I have written my about me page but have not posted/published it yet. I am a lot self-conscience about it. I really don't have a lot to say about myself so I wrote of how I got started looking for an online job.

ANY ideas or suggestions would so much be welcomed.

Thanks Terri

Hey Terri and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Terri, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
