About VLumbra
Joined May 2015
Hi. My name is Vanessa. I was born and raised in Vermont, USA. I love nature, animals and cooking, reading, traveling, crocheting, knitting and learning new things. I am not married nor have any children. I like to paint Vermont pastoral scenes in oils and acrylics. I would like to take control of my own financial freedom. I have been in and out of employment for the past 3 years and it scares me. I am ready to take matters into my own hands. Cheers to all of us who are going after our biggest dreams!!!

Thought I would follow you as I like the advice you gave someone else. You seem like a main talker rather than just a smooth talker and I.like that.x

Followed you here from another WAers post. I visited Vermont once when my friend and I hitchhiked across Canada and the Northern states. We got out of one car in the middle of what appeared to be no-where and stumbled our way up a bank and onto a nice level piece of ground to camp on. In the morning we awoke to see we were in the garden of an up-market house with a number of people lined up at the picture window looking at us. Embarrassing but a lovely camp site!

My likes follow yours a lot. Happy travelling here at WA, ask questions and keep in touch.

Hi Vanessa ! Welcome to WA! Take your time looking around the WA site! It is awesome, you will succeed but work is required! Start with filling in your profile page? Things like your hobby, where you live, your ambition, and so on? Your photo looks good but your profile is empty. Hope this helps? Wish you well. Have a great day. Regards. Jaspal

Thank you. I am having problems with my computer. I have to take it to someone that can fix it. I haven't been able to Get Started and watch the videos. I am really chomping at the bit to get going, but I keep freezing up and most of the time I get a message saying the site is not responding. Especially when I click on "get started". I'm sure it's on my end.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate family Vanessa! It's great to see that you're ready to start your online business, so I thought I'd make sure you get started on the right track.

First of all, I want you to know that you have made a very wise decision to try things out. You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new awesome people, who have had success here and are willing to share their "secrets".

Here are a couple of steps to help get you started so that you have some direction with this

1. Fill out your profile - Say a little about yourself and let the community know who you are by filling your your profile info. Put a pic of yourself (preferably) or anything that can relate to you as for this helps others put a face or item with who they are helping.

2. List your goals - I wasn't much of a goal setter, but this is something that has helped me tremendously in this industry. List your money goals here and see how this can help you along the way. 3. Start the training - Click on the green "get started here" tab to the left or click the link below to start the training. and let me know if you get confused with anything.

Take things one day at a time and you will see how things will start to fall in place. Success is just around the corner so quit wasting time and let's get you started!

P.S. DO NOT be afraid to ask me any questions! You can have any and every question answered right on the spot, so take advantage of that through the live chat, the forums and of course my personal profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/johncruz.

Good luck!

Thank you, John. I'm a little nervous but I've done some research and have read many great reviews about this particular opportunity. I am currently not working and am desperately looking for work. So I figured I will work on this along with job hunting. I am passionate when it comes to something I am excited about and soak up any knowledge I can get my hands on. So.......here I go. Thanks for your support.

Ok....I need a little help already, John. Sigh. I haven't been able to use the green "Get Started Here" button. I won't load for me. My spinner just keeps spinning and when I try to click on anything on the page it brings me to, a message box pops up and says: Wealthy Affiliates is not responding. I have a bad feeling it is on my end. I tried a different browser, but it does the same. I even went to other pages on here to try using a different link to "Get Started", but same thing. I have to "reload" back to the Home Page here. I can use other things, like my profile, check out and follow other people, etc, but I can't get started on my training. Time is a wasting and I'm chomping at the bit. And it wasn't just today....same thing happened yesterday. Any clue as to what could be the glitch? Thank you for your time.

I've never had this problem before, but you can try clearing cookies and history. I use Google Chrome and it works fine on my end. Try doing that and let me know what happens.

I cleaned out my cookies and history yesterday and today. I also tried Chrome. Those were the first things I did. Guess I will have to find a computer tech somewhere. I'm not going to be able to start my training. It is 9:pm here now so tomorrow I will call a computer store and see if I can get help. Don't give up on me if you don't see me active for a couple of days. I will keep trying, but may have to turn in my computer to be repaired or get the problem fixed. I will let you know. Don't give up on me! LOL

lol I definitely won't give up on you, that would be crazy! lol. I think it might be your internet connection, try checking that.

OMG! I got it! Or I had it.....just left there to come here to tell you....lol I hope I can get in again. I just kept refreshing over....and over....and over. I'm very tenacious and never quit anything in my life. If I want something bad enough...I can't be stopped. I am still going to call a tech tomorrow to make sure I won't have any problems in the future. This endeavor with WA is important to me. Now....back to my schooling.
