About ViFinlay59
Joined August 2013
I am the mother of five children. Two of these children are 'special needs.' One is afflicted with Cerebral Palsy and the other is Autistic. Both however fell in the realm of being gifted. Wonderful.... except that their mother was no where near as brilliant as they are. This in itself raised some interesting issues. Raising them by myself was a huge challenge.

I worked for a number of years for Mental Health. Due to my thinking 'outside of the box' I left. During my years there, I experienced suicides, drug over doses and the list goes on. I worked along side of the police and witnessed things that no one should ever have to. I lost my husband some years ago, in a truck accident so 'sudden death' is not new to me. Due to all my life experiences Mental Health was a perfect match for me.....at the time. The children are grown and on their own now which, left me time to research online marketing.

I stumbled upon this web site and so far I'm truly impressed. While this is not my first time researching online marketing it is the first time I seem to have found what I am looking for and it is not a scam.

I am enthusiastic to learn but lack the technical skills however, it appears to me I am in the right place since there seems to be a wealth of information here and some really intelligent people who could possibly guide me.

I live on a small homestead/farm and our life style revolves around organics and livestock. We have scaled back in a big way so now is the time too supplement the lost income and perhaps more..........we live in the far north of Canada and the winters are very long and can be very cold. This business will keep me busy during this time.

Money Goals
To be honest I'm thinking maybe a few thousand a month.........in time that is. I am more focused on the building of skills and all this new technology. I have very basic and I mean basic skills so...........I believe the sky is the limit and it is all about and it is all about how much effort one puts into it..........I'm highly motivated at the best (and worst) of times and am continually challenging myself..........this site is exactly what I have been looking for and so far I just wish there were more hours in a day. This is a real opportunity. Everyone can remind me of this when I am unable to understand something and I'm pulling my hair out. lol A sense of humor is a must in any kind of business. Wish everyone well.

These are great goals Virginia and they are very realistic. Even though you are new to technology, you will not have any trouble because there is tons of training here at WA. You'll get a lot out of being a member here at WA and you sound very enthusiastic about the opportunity. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Hi Virginia. Thanks for the follow. After reading your intro I see we have a few things in common. I am familiar with mental health - someone very close to me being afflicted.

Hey and a couple of years ago I worked on the agricultural census and had the opportunity to speak with many farmers across the country. I was selected to contact farmers in north of Canada. Many of the folks that moved to the Yukon from other provinces said they just loved it.

I imagine I would love the north in the summer months but winter may be a tad too cold for me not too mention the dark. I love sunshine. I sincerely hope things work out for you here at WA.

The best thing to do is to find one or two people that are doing well (I mean earning money doing this) and that you can trust and that are willing to help you get to where you want to be (I mean sincerely help you).

Also there is so much information here at WA (some of it inaccurate and some of it outdated) that you need to choose mentors that know their stuff well & will give you reasons for doing something or not doing something.

It may take a little while but you will naturally attract the "right" people to you. The set-up of your site is looking fine. I am looking forward to seeing your progress and doing well with your online biz!

All The Best,

Devan.

Thank you so much Mark. I am at a place where I needed some feed back. I hadn't planned on it 'till I got all the pages finished and uploaded images and or pics. By the way I really do need to update my profile. I to,worked for Mental Health for a time. I loved my work but was a little to radical for their taste......always in trouble for thinking out side the box. lol I expressed those thoughts rather openly. OOPS. lol Would enjoy staying in touch as eventually want to develop a website dedicated to mental health and addictions.

Still, with some perseverance, we can all reach our goals - I'm sure you'll be reaching yours!

Thanks for the follow, Virginia. I'm glad you found WA. During those cold days you are going to love sitting by the fire and running your business with a big cup of hot tea at your side! I am just a little jealous of that. It never gets extremely cold where I live. Last winter I think it got below freezing one time. Generally we run our air-conditioners right through December! Maybe the heat comes on in January for about a week, and then spring arrives! So, I'll be thinking of you and wishing you the very best in your online business. See you around the boards.

Kyle has actually posted to me, he is online too! Not just a name! So do others!
If you see me around, you will find me shouting this is it!!! How do I know, because I am actually doing this, and I am having light bulb moments. Sometimes it gets rough, but all these wonderful people give you a hand up, all you have to do is open a chat or a Blog!

Think my mind was blown a very long time ago. lol :~) Got any idea how I might delete what is left of my website? I need to start again. When I originally started the site at wordpress it was going not to bad. There was a week time lapse and when I went back to finish I was told to upgrade to 3.1.6. I did and the fun began.........it made a mess. Next I learn there were 13 bugs in the original wordpress I started my website on and then i get an urgent message to upgrade my SEO plugin as there was a security bug in that. anyhow just want to be able to delete it all and start fresh as does Angelsway. (Judy) Maybe you could help her to?

Stay in for months???? lol lol.........I wish especially, when the temp. drops to -40 or -50. We live in a valley so the temp. is always 10 degrees colder or warmer than it is higher up. Today is 120 degrees. We have scaled back in a big way here but there is fences to finish fixing and always animals and livestock to feed and plowing snow...........lots of it.
I am going to have more time than ever now so I can get serious about an online business and learn how it's all done. Look forward to seeing you around here on WA.

Virginia, I don't think it would be an overstatement to say that Wealthy Affiliate training covers the entire spectrum from "Kindergarten to a Doctorate degree" in online marketing and website building. That is why some become overwhelmed. They may be at third grade level in their understanding; yet, dabble in 12th grade concepts on the first day. That is a recipe for major frustration. I'm glad you recognized what was beginning to happen and did the sensible thing--regroup!

Hi Virginia, I just tried to check out your website but got a "can't find the page message".

Your site name looks like this:
http://Virginia's Equestrian Tack and Wear.siterubix.com

I think the reason for this is that you have spaces in the name... If you replace the space with dashes ( - ) it should work just fine...or just remove the spaces that will work too!

Oh Virginia... I hate days like you just had... been there. I was going to check your site to see where you had it hosted but the link on this page isn't working. So I have a few questions. In order for your page to NOT have the siterubix extension you would have had to purchase the domain name (Virginiasequestriantackandwear.com from a registrar like GoDaddy or 1and1 or Hostgator etc. Did you purchase the domainname.com already? Or is it the free domain from WA? After you purchase the domain name from the registrar you have to change the DNS ( domain name server) so that WA is your new hosting company. For instance if you buy a domanname.com or .net from Hostgator they register that domain name as you being the owner and for a monthly fee they host your site and by default the DNS is pointing at their server. You have to go to your hostgator or godaddy account control panel and change the DNS so it points to WA server. Then you have to add your domain to WA. Did you do that? If so remember it takes up to 48 hours for all the servers to update where your site info is.
K I'll check back here in the AM see how you are doin.

Hey there Randy........Thank you for responding, much appreciated it is. I have to wait for six to eight days for the funds to be approved and transferred via Pay Pal to Namecheap where I purchased my own domain. In the meantime I decided to go through siterubix to set up a free domain with WA. Eager to get started on learning how to build my website. (I do plan on having more than three) Anyhow was exausted and a little frustrated.....lol, went to bed and slept for 13 hours. lol Will be heading back over there as soon as I am done with emails. I hardly remember where I left off. We will see how much bigger mess I can make. lol Will be getting back to you.

Virginia, such is life as they say. I also went thru all those problems to get my upgrade, but finally made it, just by keep trying. The issue on the ranking here at WA is kind of
funny, there many subjects the site considers ( participation, helping others, training etc etc). Have seen in my 7 days at WA that many times such rank does not make sense, but it is not very important. The real important thing here is your education, so worry about learning all you possibly can. Yep it appears the site does not count your participation as forum posts, but believe you can have an idea of chat participation by looking at the green button exactly over your profile. Take time to know the site and follow your training as much to the t as you can. Best of luck

Hi Steve.........I have signed up for a premium membership as about one hour ago. I had a hec of time as for whatever reasons, every sign up for premium would not work and then Pay Pal did not recognize WA as an address. To top that it was or had to be in US Funds. perhaps you could share some light on this. I emailed both Kyle and Carson and have not heard anything back as of yet. Wish you well.

Sincerely, Virginia.

I can't look into any payment issues as I'm only a member here. You might get a quicker response if you send them a PM (via their profiles) here instead of email. As for rank, Kyle has a walkthrough video here explaining it all: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/the-benefits-of-being-an-ambassador

Dear Steve, I have been spending so much time trying to get Pay Pal to work so that I could pay for a Premium Membership.....which is now done and only took me near two days......now i try to get a domain and am told that when Canadian my debit card is not appropriate. they want monies that are held by Pay Pal or a Credit Card. I only want the domain name as it would be better when i go to build my website. Still no one has answered me about also promoting WA on my own website as well as having a website strictly promoting WA. I might be a newbie per say, but am reaching the end of my rope here. Nothing should be this hard and oh by the way I have had an account with Pay Pal for more than twenty years with no problems......why was it so difficult to have WA paid for a Premium Membership........that only took 2 and half days.........sheesh, I could have been working on all the lessons during this time. Your assistance at this time would be sincerely appreciated at this time.

Someone suggested Siterubix.........this has nothing to do with Domains. Been there a dozen times or more. It is now that i am getting suspicious as to what is going on here. Please, I need for you to email me and give me straight goods.

Sincerely, Virginia.

Like I said earlier, there's nothing I can really do about payment issues. You'll have to ask Kyle or Carson or Paypal directly. I've never had a problem making my payments.

As for a domain, Premium members are encouraged to use the hosting here with their own domain names. You can promote Wealthy Affiliate on your own domain. You'll need to purchase a name from a site like NameCheap and then point it to WA hosting here. Kyle has a tutorial on this here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/wa-hosting-setting-up-your-domain-dns

Good day Virginia and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Thanks Steve. Have got to the niche part now and while I have some idea of the direction I am going in I want to take some time to research it a little further. Definitely becoming a premium member.

Sincerely, Virginia.

Cheers Virginia! It's always good to do a fair bit of research to make sure you're in the right niche. Don't get too hung up though because building a site will provide you with a lot more experience than anything else.
