Hello! As they say, "What's in a name" but I do go by MARY ANN so if you call me 'Mary' you haven't read my bio...just saying.

I am a wife, mother and grandmother who deserves to have happiness, wealth and abundance. I want to be in control of my life and finances on my terms and make life easier for those around me who I value,love and cherish. I believe this is all possible with Wealthy Affiliate.

In my spare time I read (LOTS); travel with my husband (been to Costa Rica 3 times, Jamaica, Dominican, the beautiful Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia and heading to Mexico in November 2018); paint and draw; and love crossword puzzles.

Hello, Mary Ann,

I made sure not to call you, Mary. I got a kick out of that one.

Great bio and it's nice to meet you. I just saw you over at Mike Kearn’s station.

To the late greeting of February 2018. I say welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

Regards,

Becky

Hi Becky.

Thanks for taking note! And thank you for the welcome!! Good to meet you.

As for making lemonade out of lemons, I like to say Tequila :).

Hi, Mary Ann,

Yes, lemons are good. Love them, lol.

I look forward to seeing you reach your goals, Mary Ann, or I should say Wealth2018.

Here's to lemons, tequila, a laptop, and a sunny beach. Oh yes, of course, the salt too, lol. Can't forget the salt.

I hope we both reach our goals, Becky.

Love the idea of the "lemons, tequila, salt, laptop, and beach.

Heading to Mexico in the fall so hope to find those beaches - and the tequilla. I know, it's a tough life...

Hi Mary Ann

It's nice to meet you. Thank you so much for the comment on my site. I appreciate it. I hope the training is going well for you!

Where are you planning to visit in Mexico? My folks usually go to the Puerto Vallarta area. I was there once and really enjoyed it.

I am from Canada and have never been to Nova Scotia. I would love to visit sometime & Costa Rica!

Looking forward to seeing you around the community.

Best regards,

Devan

Hi Devan. Nice to hear from you. Our plan is to head to Mexico for three months beginning of October or November, then head to San Juan Del Sur (beach town) in Nicarauga, possibly with a short visit to Costa Rica to connect with the many friends we made there.

Nova Scotia is beautiful, especially the Annapolis Valley!

Hello Mary and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thank you Mary Ann for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Hola Mary!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you for adding me to your network and I have also added you to mine.

PS what part of Costa Ricá are you staying? I am completing my application to Panamá for residence. for the next few months, I will be staying in Anonos, Escazu, west of Sabana Park.

We are in the Central part so not getting the heat the way the Pacific side does. Second long term trip here. At the end of March planning to go to Nicaragua for a few days as we have heard good things about it and residency is much cheaper than here in CR. Panama probably isn't as expensive either.

Oh, so you guys are in the central valley, for now. And you are correct about the costs in Nicaragua and Panamá. Hint, hint, hint, investigate both countries before setting down in one place.

For my purposes, Panamá is the much better choice.

We can stay in touch on WA. If not running into each other during travels.

Best regards,

Keisi.

Smart thinking. Because The Plan changes according to what options you have and what you are willing to accept with your new lifestyle.

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! :)
