I am a single woman without children who chose the "career path." After many years of running successful restaurants, I switched fields and began managing with UPS for 10 years and now Amazon for almost 4...I am tired of working for others! It is finally time to work for myself and actually enjoy a good life! This is a mere sample as I am sure to update in the future...looking forward to finally succeeding with an online business.

Hi Deidre. You have one of my fave names from my childhood. Great to connect with you on this entrepreneurs platform. I just signed up today and I am very excited. I'm being proactive by setting my account up and moving quickly through the training; which will get me to making an impact. Fee King

Upsgirl, I was here a couple of years ago but dropped out:(
I remember you from then and remember that you are quiet active, so was I then, maybe too active. It easy to get caught
up In the Community and let your work slip... Not this time.

I am sticking with my passion and I'm in the process as Kyle says:) of building my "Self-Help Coach": website. I see you
are growing and getting it done.

I'm following you to success so lead the way. I may contact you
for some help if I get stuck:)

May you have all the success you are seeking.

Hello Upsgirl,

You are good road model being very determined. This is when success comes, except for somebody who only wants to play lotto. When the eye is on the ball or mark, the future is yours, not so much or less that today may bring. With this mindset, you certainly will succeed with a lucrative online business. Go get it!

Thanks

Good afternoon.
I'm really impressed with the style of Course procedure, here on WA. Looking forward to much success on down the road. Like yourself, I, too, am single & without children. So far, I'm quite impressed with WA & the fact that you were one of the "Helpers." Have a wonderful day.

All My Best,

I neep help. So I'm trying to find keywords using Jaaxy and it's quite difficult. I've been researching quite extensively. My niche is 'Print Dresses' (so dresses with prints on them) and the difficulty is that everything I search relates back to general dresses (cocktail, midi, long, with sleeves etc) if I even put the word 'print' or 'printed' in it, the search results become pretty dismal and I can't refine my searches but it's supposed to relate back to my 'print dresses' niche. The whole aspect of my website is that the dresses are specifically meant to be 'printed'. Any help?

Hi Upsgirl. Can you give me your feedback on my choice of niche? "Cat Health". I am a cat lover and owner and am always looking for information online. I think it would be great to have a all encompassing resource with link and products. I know other websites already exist but mine can exceed. I can think of many categories of info off the bat. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Lainey

Cat health is too broad. What, specifically, about cat health? Diets, symptoms, tips, exercises, supplies, etc.
Be really specific.

Hi Upsgirl, been stuck for a day now, didn't, want to bother anyone. I have my first affiliate merchant to work with soccer.com. Using their address http://soccer.com/ and following Kyle,s training, linking Text is not a problem to soccer.com, but I have some pictures from soccer.com site which I uploaded and inserted on my page/post. I need to be able to click on these images of soccer boots (cleats) which will take me straight to soccer.com website, same as text.
Please help as my morale is going down fast, please explain in easy 1,2,3 step by step process what I need to do.

Thank you,
John

I am so glad you did the jump into working for YOURSELF instead of for others. We women especially are so used to not insert ourselves in the picture, doing everything for others and often without or little payment. This is very valid for married women with children - but sometimes the workplace can have the same function to keep us running.
So how is your autonomy going since you jumped? I see you have come very far here in the community!

Hello:) I have messages to several people, but no one has responded. I've noticed that you actually respond! I'm wanting to upgrade to premium, but I'm wanting to read the terms of service first. Every time I pull it up, it only shows me a blank page. I'm also wanting to pay using pay pal, but it won't let me. Any clues on these questions???

Thank you following me....... I am so excised about my journey!

I intended to have the two free websites each for a different niche I first created the web site for the brain food supplement memory
Then I created a second free url in the online marketing niche. Now to my surprise siterubix just created 2 urls of the same niche.How can I fix this?

Delete and start over and/or delete the duplicate website. Make sense?

Hi Upsgirl, Sorry to be so tortoise like in responding to you. I'm thankful you are a mentor here at WA. May you achieve the kind of success that you desire in your life. Thanks for the follow, I'll reciprocate in kind. One last thing! I'm spying out your site on Tinnitus. I have that and in my case it's a combination of noise and seven and a half decades of living in this present world.

Hi Upsgirl
So you wrote a cool little article on Selfie Sicks and got 8 zillion comments .. that means you must get a ton of traffic ... right?

Here is my question I sent to Kyle and Carson.

"Its been a while so I thought to check in regarding my web business.
.
So far I have written 14 pieces of content.
I feel that what I have written is good .. especially compared to some other blogs I have read.

I am only getting 30 visits a week.
I seem to need a way to get more Traffic.

I have good profiles on G+ and 800 followers on Twitter and have engaged ...posted links with images and so on - but have not seen much return from Social media.

My Page with the most comments: http://keyboardgord.com/playground-sessions-review

Here is my home page: http://keyboardgord.com/

Thanks for any advice or ideas.

If you have time.

Gord

That was my forst website and I do well. All I did was follow the Lessons. I saw my first sale at the 1.5 month mark.

You can't compare your Blogs to others. Do what you're supposed to do and the Traffic will come.

I did check your Keywords and they're perfect. Good job!

I clicked through some Blogs and I can't find where to purchase anything. It needs to be evident one can easily purchase.
Adding Sidebars will help too.

Thanks for your kind words. Keep plugging away. You're on the right track!

Hello upsgirl, I have a question about course 2 and lesson 2. before this lesson, we had 3 pages - About me, privacy policy and how to lose belly fat fast. In this lesson, we don't have the how to lose belly fat fast page anymore. I was reading a comment that this would be the home page.

How do we set this to be the home page? I have a page created thats by itself. if this is the homepage, is this going to be a static page? Or is the home page a page that summarizes the recent blog posts etc? I am very confused :(
Reply
upsgirl Premium
I am confused too.
Let me try to answer this question.
Kyle's 3 Pages were the About Me, Privacy Policy, and a Home Page. The Home Page is also known as the Getting Started Page.
You can choose any Page/Post you want to be a Static Page.
Another option is to set it up as a Rolling Blog. You will make any Page/Post the first thing we see...always.
What do you need to do RIGHT NOW?

Hi,
I am at at this point where I am building out my menu items on the top (omega theme) which reflect the categories of my website.
So if the third page is a home page, we won't be needing this if we set it as a rolling blog correct?
I was confused since the last lesson had 3 menu items and the new lesson has two menu items (about me and privacy policy).

You still need either a Home Page or a Getting Started Page. Follow Kyle's instructions. It informs your visitors as to what can be found on your website.
