About Taram7
Joined April 2017
Hey, Everyone!

I am Tara. I'm a single mother and I have been an entrepreneur for almost a decade now. I have had 'jobs' working for others for only 1 year total of the last 10 and once was a major life event for less than 6 months. I am not an employee. I have too many things in my head. I'm a natural born leader, problem solver, organic gardener, herbalist, clothing designer, crochet artist, furniture restorer, home remodeler, cook, proofreader, copywriter, blogger (hahaha 3 failed attempts), hiker, camper, forager, a chicken goat raising canning, soap making, self-sufficient, antiquing, yoga wannabe homesteader. All of this while being a homeschooling natural living single mother and loving it.

My businesses supported us, but never lucratively and were usually not online. I have been my own product. I am a constant learner and find wonder in many of the basic aspects of life. And while I love what I do, I would like to see more fruit and be able to help others; especially single mothers, live by their simple convictions and have confidence knowing they can be their own boss and curate their own lives as they want, self-sufficiently.
I think I included enough adjectives ;)
We only fail when we quit!
I am very glad to have finally found a community for education and support to help me actually cross the barriers I kept running into. So glad to be a part of WA!

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 


HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Tara, 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 Tara.

Right now I just need more hours in a day and a few extra hands :/
Loving it so far. I'm not so techie gifted, but the course is helping.
Thanks and have a great weekend!

I do have a question. Is there a way to search through our past comments and questions in the individual course sections instead of scrolling forever to try to find it?
I had asked a question on one and forgot the process and now I can't find it and don't want to have to reask, so a way to search that?
Thanks again!

You can see your notifications within the Green Globe icon. But there is no way to search through your entire history, for many people this would be 10,000's of items.

We do have a new and improved notification/task type platform coming though that will help that out.

Please help me. I am locked out of my courses and I have submitted tickets and emails and questions and I cannot get a response. My courses were reset and I renewed my premium on 6/5/17- but it's telling me to please upgrade to premium to continue :( I need Help.

That task is there for everyone, simply check that off and move on (as you are already premium). Don't worry Tara, you are definitely Premium. :)

That is quite a resume you include on your profile and seems suited particularly well with online marketing I think. So many directions to go, here you have the framework (lessons and members to advise when needed) and you have the vision and drive...It sounds like a match made in heaven and I wish you the best of luck! Cheers! Dave : )

Hi, Dave!
Thank you for your comment and you are right, too much stuff in my head, too many interests. I am very simple and complicated :)
Glad to meet you and I wish you much success!
Glad to have found WA.

You and I seem to have a lot in common Tara! Thank you for reaching out to me! I will be watching your progress! Please let me know if I can help you in any way. (I checked my link on my last re-post to you and it works!) ;)

I love your adventurous and "outside the box" thinking spirit!! I believe we're kindred spirits! :)

I have a heart for single moms...and orphan children.

Following you...

Blessings on your journey here on WA and beyond Tara!

I agree with you and so nice to have come across your profile on here! I also have a heart for single mothers and think all that want to be home with their children should, without guilt- which is one reason I am here ;)
I refuse to give up or give in.
Blessings to you also and truly hope our paths cross more!

Well, My internet has been out for about 8 days of the last 2.5 weeks and my contracts are backed up. I'm still trudging along in the foyer :/ Always working on stolen time.
I don't think you did, and if you did, I missed it. Would love to see it!
Thanks! Tara

I can relate, believe me Tara!! It's a pathway of two steps forward...three steps back. Just expect that forward progress will be that way and it won't be such a shock when it happens. ;) We all get that...and I, to a very large degree, have had that same experience. We all envision getting there in a straight line, but it never happens that way, unfortunately. Will make success that much sweeter tho, having worked so hard to get there.

I've been here since early February...and just now starting Course 3. Going thru a divorce at the end of the year when I am hopefully making an income so I can move out. Hubby and I are just trying to co-habitate peacefully till then, and I am grateful that he's not kicking me out to live under a tree right now. Ohhh Dearrr!

We all are digging a new riverbed darlin...you're not alone, by any means!!

Here's my Website...and my FB group, Barefoot Journaling Chronicles, would welcome you too, if you'd like a "pick me up"!! :)

Loves and Hugs to you my dear!!

Oh my gosh, we really have so much in common. I finally got my very rough initial 3 pages published. I started out on the build your business, then moved to the bootcamp.
I currently am an online contract and see that you are a writer - squeal! Do you ever take any projects on Upwork? I'm making my profile there soon. I needed something in the interim.

I am again on stolen time, because I have files waiting on me, but it's only income. I am hunting through your site now and come check out my about me if you want. I have 2 pages published.
I am not a great writer, but I am told I am entertaining =) hahaha
So nice to meet you, truly.

Hey there lady Tara...

Checked out your website!! Very cute and quirky!! ;) I like it!! Keep it fun!!

Be very careful of Content mills like Upwork...I took a copywriting course from AWAI (American Writers and Artists Inc), and was warned about the content mills wanting 'perfect' work for pennies on the dollar! You can do them for a short time, but don't grow to depend on them.

Have you heard of Swagbucks.com ?? Check them out. You can do surveys for gift cards to walmart and such. They are fun to do and only take like 15 minutes. Sign up and try it out. Might buy you some time till you get going.

There are also others on Pinterest. Are you on there? You can also promote yourself on Pinterest too. I've heard of ppl making an income just doing Pinterest. Check out my boards if you'd like...I have a ton of stuff to ck out. I'm on there as Evon Robinson.

Hang in there Tara...you and I will make it! I know it's not easy right now, but it will get better, just don't give up. We should make a pact to meet once we do!! Where do you live?

I just applied to do some guest posting (writing work) for a fellow bullet journal blog. Hope I get it, because she has 150K to 200K followers and it could be a real boost to my blog. Pray for me? My fingers, eyes, and toes are crossed! Ha ha! :D

I'm working thru the training...I'm on course 3.1, I think I told you already. Once I get thru course 5 I'm planning to add the WA affiliate boot camp too...doesn't hurt to have several streams of income. I already have 2 WA affilates under me...at least it pays my WA fee every month, mostly.

Hugs to you sweet girl!!

Hey, Evon, I'm trying to find anyone here to help me. Are you able to see my message and reply to me? I am having so many problems with my WA right now and It's like I'm totally invisible. I have no notifications or anything, can you see me at all?
Thanks so much.

I did, they said finally responded to me. I had so many problems but I am so relieved you can see me, thank you! It was hours- they said they have to have Carson look at my issues- idk what that means but everything was broken for me and the courses kicked me off of premium even, won't let me in :( I wasn't getting updates, for any conversations, ugh and these were my 2 days to work on this :'( My luck. Thanks again!!

I had some big time trouble when I switched themes at the beginning. Had to clear my search engine completely and start over with new passwords on everything. Took a few days to clear everything up. You just have to know there will be some days that will be no gos...don't stress, It all gets worked out and then you can move forward.

Hugs to you sweetie cakes!! Hope it gets better soon...as it usually does...and then you wonder, Why did I stress out?

Love ya!

~Evon :)

taram7 Premium
I was only stressed cause no one was responding. And I was getting zero notifications. It was a little bothersome. Then it said I wasn't premium anymore... aahh.
But I finally heard back- and you saw me :)
Thanks so much! You're awesome! XXX

Hello Tara and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined in April you will have come to realize that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

Thank you so much :) I realize the 'curve' but I think it's more like a figure 8, and a huge cliff.
I will be sure to check it out. Thank you!!
Have a great day and much success :)

LadybugLove Premium
I had to laugh at your figure 8 and cliff comment Tara! Ha ha...Just remember, you have the right tools to maneuver anything that gets tossed your way...

What do you do when life tosses you lemons? Make lemonade, by adding some sugar.

What if life tosses you scraps? Make a quilt! ;)

And in the meantime..I found this advice helpful too. Blessings,

That's true and thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a rocky creek trying to figure out only best next step to get me across without falling into the rapids O.o
I'm currently confused about the next step so that is where I am, exactly :)
Thanks again!

Hello Tara,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

taram7 Premium
So cool and thank you for your comment. I will definitely be stalking you around :)
I am also a list maker. I usually forget them at home when I need them though. I have been known to write lists on the most ridiculous things and forget where I left them, but I persist :)
You sound so cool. Thanks again!

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! :)

I have it narrowed down to 4 and I want all 4. Like a woman in a shoe shop... just buy them all :/

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

So I am really not getting the difference in the 2 WA paths- the bootcamp vs. the course- each is a website... what am I missing?
Reply
brokwebb Premium
Both are very similar, but the Bootcamp is set up for the "make money online" niche to basically promote Wealthy Affiliate.

The certification course is what you'd want to start with if you're using any other niche.

so the bootcamp would be quicker to start seeing returns...?
