About Teacup
Joined November 2007
My name is Glenda, aka Teacup, and I have been here at WA for quite a while. A lot of things have changed since I joined. I went from a full house to an empty nest back to a full house again when I allowed a couple of young people to move into my empty rooms. Also I retired, then went back to work on a part time basis. (much less stressful job, by the way.) That gives me a little extra income and provides some structure to my day. Since I work in home health, It also gives me a sense of pleasure knowing that what I do makes life a lot easier for someone else.

During my time here, I have seen a lot of changes in WA and in online marketing in general. When I first came here the training program and community were nothing like it is now. It has grown so much and improved in almost every way possible.

Online marketing has been a passion of mine for some time, but most of that time was wasted chasing after shiny objects. They didn't seem like shiny objects though. They actually looked like necessary parts of the marketing puzzle. Let me tell you from experience that all you need to be successful in online marketing can be found right here at WA. There are all kinds of techniques, gimmicks, software and programs out there. Some are actually good but none of them are anywhere near as complete as what we have here. Most of them are like putting water in a leaky bucket. You just don't know it until after you buy it.

If any of you have “Shiny Object Syndrome” - like I did - then you may find a lot of things that will lure you away from here. However, WA has always steered me straight and I have always found my way back. In fact, it was only after I finally started applying the things that were taught here that I started making any money on a consistent basis. These days, I know better than to allow such distractions get in my way with WA.

There have been a lot of changes in online marketing in the past few years. Things that used to get you first page rankings will now get you penalized. For example, Google changes, the closing of Squidoo, and Amazon changes have been a bit tough for a lot of folks. In some cases, our marketing plans had to change course completely. Through it all, WA has kept its members up to date and informed of everything we needed to know to be able to grow our businesses.

Take it from me, life can get awfully busy at times and it is very tempting to take a lot of shortcuts. You can skip over things, if you want to, but somewhere down the line you are going to need the solid foundation that you could have had if you would have just taken the time to do things right at the beginning. Just take that time now to do things right and it will actually save you time and money.

Hey teacup! (I almost want to call you "Buttercup" :)

Your goals seem perfectly achievable. What I would suggest is, as far as the time you're willing to invest, that you give a specific amount of time, and know when that time will be invested, for example, you'll work at your online business from 9AM to noon on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. If you don't schedule the time, you're not likely to follow through--at least that's true for most people.

Good luck to you!

Hi - I can add that I am Tea-leaf - my hubby has had this as one of my nicknames for 20 years (it is because I stew or what I hope to think as mull) on things, then I want to talk about them weeks and months later....lol

Thank you! Any time you need something let me know. If I can't help I will try to point you to someone who can. By the way, I love both coffee and tea. Lately though I have had to switch to the decaffeinated versions as I suppose I just had too much of it. (grin)
