About Techiescot
Joined October 2016
I'm Gillian and I am lucky to live in the beautiful Scottish countryside with my children and friendly Jackadoodle.

Originally a teacher, I spent over 30 years in Asia, including Japan and Hong Kong. While in Hong Kong, I was also fortunate enough to train in aromatherapy massage and began to follow a more holistic approach to nutrition and health. I studied meditation and mindfulness and am currently writing a number of books on the subject. I still do some tutoring and love to help young people.

I also run a number of businesses and have been selling online for over a decade. Now that I am looking at retirement in the NEXT decade, I want to move to more passive income. I am committed to helping others, especially women and single mothers in particular, to making progress in any area of their lives. Let me know if I can help anyone. I can listen, too, if you just need a shoulder to lean on for a moment while you catch your breath.

I am willing to invest as much time as I have spare ... it fluctuates ... if my children need me, they come first, my friends and family second, but if they don't need me then it is working towards my goals for the next decade.

Sounds great. Someone once told me to set up an actual work schedule when you work from home, and treat it like you are really going to work and those are your work hours.

I think I'll follow that advice.

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 am already interested and involved in aromatherapy, organic skincare, meditation and mindfulness so I will be looking at drilling down into those a bit more. I need to do a bit more research into the specifics but I have a couple of products (ebooks) already created in draft form but not published / marketed yet.

I think these are growth areas.

Gillian,

I see you decided to, what I like to call "Take the Leap" as well. First I would like to say Congratulations. Not only on taking the first step towards a better career opportunity, but also the first step at a better life. Not only are you about to embark on a major learning and building adventure. You also get to share this experience with many like minded people like yourself, on that very same adventure. I myself am no expert, but if there is anything I can do to help you along the way, please don't hesitate to ask. I wish you all the best in your future here at Wealthy affiliate.

Best Wishes,
-Kenny

Hi Gillian. Loved your self introduction. We're in the same field of holistic medicine but I'm still a student learning acupuncture. It's been a thrill to study oriental medicine so I think I will retire doing this for the rest of my life. I hope to graduate by end of next year and take the New York boards. I am curious to know how you initiated your first business after you graduated. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.

Hi

I was a teacher for 35 years and still do a bit of teaching. I also run my own furniture business. I am not running a therapy business at the moment but might do in the future - so I cannot really answer the question you are asking.

Sorry.

Gillian

Hey Gillian! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Hey Gillian 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 Gillian, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Once you setup your profile, reply to this message and I'll send you my 10 Hottest Business Ideas for 2016. They'll really help you get moving quickly here!
