Joined July 2018
Greetings, All ! .. So nice to be part of a real Community! In the tiny Tourist and Fishing Village where I live, in the beautiful Bay Of Islands, in New Zealand.. it's all about Community here, too! :) - I've worked in the Tourist Industry for many years, and loved helping all the countless Visitors to our Shores, - I finally decided to change my line of work, and took-on one of my other big passions... Organic Landscape Gardening! Worked several years at this, loving every minute.. till it sorta 'fizzled-out' after a Trip to Canada, and a down-turn in the economy.. wherein people wanted to keep me on, working.. but simply couldn't afford it. -- What to do?! -- I love Computer work, and have learned heaps,..(some, the hard way) :{ ...but would love to earn a really good Living at it! - Have to confess.. I'm a bit addicted to YouTube! :) haha!.. Though my biggest passion (in addition to my own Families!)-- Is in the fields of Natural Health Remedies and Healing... &helping; others to Live extra-Healthy too!! ---
I love to learn! --
Cheers, All - Looking forward to meeting-up, and seeking trustworthy good info.

Hi Jen,

Dropping in to say hi to my new Kiwi Friend.
I'm slowly getting there keeping on track with my training. I'm still enjoying all of this although sometimes I get a wee bit overwhelmed.
I hope all is going well with you on this venture with WA.

Tonight I will be going Online with Amazon Training 8pm.

Will take time to find out how to put the links into/onto my Post/Blog Page.


So Bye for now

Hello Jen ... thank you for the follow. Your background and experience will serve you well here at WA. All you need to do now is to acquire the needed skills to become a successful affiliate marketer.

You're in the best place you could be to do that. I wish you the best on your WA journey.
WilliamChamb Premium
Welcome to WA. Your article was enjoyable to read. I too love finding natural was to make life better. I became interested in natural remedies for improving my health almost 30 yrs. ago when I encountered some health issues. As a result, I began gardening as a hobby using natural conservative ways of improving the soil resulting in more nutritinous foods.
Enjoy your journey here at WA, it's a great place to be.
Will follow you.
Much success,
Igor13 Premium
Hi Jen!
Thanks for the follow. Following you back!
I have been to Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, inland), but never to New Zealand!
Due to online possibilities, YouTube videos, and other sources, I can search for NewZealand, to get a picture of it.

Natural and alternative medicine can sometimes help a lot. The only thing is to know how it works.
In my opinion, it is a great topic.
Build it up online!
Wish you success!

Hi Jen
Thanks for the follow - I have reciprocated.
You certainly have an interesting profile.
I can only imagine your location in the Bay of Islands - a magnificent locations. I have only ventured from Auckland to the south island, quite some time ago & loved it. We were tourists from Sydney.
Your healthy living strikes accord with me, although not organic I do take care of a sensible diet & eliminated sugar & salt. As an old guy - I am living twenty five klms from Bangkok, I am slow to get stuck into the potential here at WA. I just need to do it.
I wish you great success here with the WA family.

Dear Weka-Lodge,
I was born in London, Ontario;the coastal town you describe
sounds lovely. I like to fish, to boat, ocean views and all.
I think you will do very well. There is a freedom about
affiliate marketing.
Maybe you will use your gardening interests to start a business
You have worked hard which is similar to marketing online.
I will enjoy following you. Thanks for the invitation to do so!

Hello Jennifer, 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 referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

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

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations on upgrading to Premium.

Thank you for following me and I am returning the favor.

I see you love natural health remedies and healing. So do I.

Do you think a post on foods that heal would be interesting?

Should people eat to live or live to eat?

Let's chat.

Your friend,

Weka-Lodge Premium
Hi Maxine! -- So glad to hear that you like Good Health and Natural Healing too! -- It certainly is a very vital part of our lives that we absolutely must take our own, personal responsibility for. -- Anything short of that full-on commitment can so easily lead us into some really serious and miserable chronic illnesses.
I really enjoy eating lots of RAW-foods, every day... and having my own small Organic Gardens help immensely with all that! :)
Here in New Zealand, there are usually always our Local Farmers' Market Days, each week.... some, for only half-a-day..
but that's still a great Service to our Communities, in the name of greater Good Health from fresher, and quite-often, Organically-grown Fruit & Veggies, and other great Products, like Locally-sourced Honey, Nuts, Eggs...( & I personally love Duck-Eggs!!). Also, Local Olive Oils, and in Mid, to late Spring..
the occasional Purveyors of a range of Plants, and Shrubs/Trees
to purchase for our own Gardens. --
And of course, a great Place there to chat with anyone, and to ask the Farmers all-sorts of questions about their Produce too! -

Frankly, I only go to the 'ordinary'-Supermarket - to buy lotsa good, New Zealand Grass-fed Butter! ...(hmmmm...that sounds a bit like a 'mis-nomer', doesn't it!! --umm.. we actually feed the cows or goats on the Grass!! -- and then enjoy their Butter!..).. haha! :) Anyway...since I buy only things that I cannot grow in my own Garden.... like Coconut Cream...and Oil, and greatly restrict the purchase from there, of all the very "Processed"-foods,... then it is amazing how much money can be saved, plus a far better standard of Good Health achieved! :)
I rarely ever buy any Meat, keeping awesome meats, like NZ. Venison only for those rare, special occasions. Tiny, very oily tinned Fish goes well on my giant Salads, with lashes of Coconut Cream and a generous sprinkling of Himalayan Salt, which easily takes the place of all those 'usual'-Health-destroying "Salad-Dressings"!!--Yuk! -No thank you, to those!! :)

If it takes a Magnifying-glass, and the patience of a Saint to read all of the extensive 'List' of Ingredients... in so, so many Supermarkets, these days... then it simply does not go into my basket! -- As a delightful Bonus, the 'hours', years-previously spent in 'just-Shopping'... is hugely reduced, including the number of Supermarket-visits!! :) ...Ahhhh... I love it!! --
Just think! -- You now get to spend that time IN your Organic Garden!!! ... Being also relaxed, and 'communing' with the Bees,
Bugs, and Birds!
Mealtimes can even be 'simplified'! ....So for my meals I just think - 'Ok...I've got this delicious, giant Raw-Salad, with its mostly UN-processed Salad-Dressing & all ready-to-go...
Now, what do I want on it? Canadian Sardines? .. Non-Mercury Tuna or Salmon?? --(wherever there IS such a creature!!)... and
of course...everlastingly = NO!-Genetic Engineering, NOR!--
Genetic-'Modification'!! --We do our best! And must Protest! --
So, taking responsibility for our own, personal Good Health
is a seriously--rewarding business! -- I aim to develop the same level of Rewarding-Business with WA. .. Here's hoping!! :) :)

How do you manage your Health and Gardens, Maxine?
Do you grow some of your own Produce?? ... I hope to hear! :)
Cheers! -- Jen.
Hi Jen,

WOW! You have a very healthy lifestyle

Our eating habits are very similar.

I use chicken eggs instead of duck eggs and freshly catch fish instead of sardines.

Here on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, I do go to the farmers market to buy and sell local fruits and herbs.

Also when I cook brown rice and veggies, I use coconut milk that I make from coconuts. No red meat, pork or chicken for me.

My daily mission is to pay attention to what goes into my body.

Until next time.

Your friend,

Hello Jen,
I like your description of the place where you live it sounds idilic,

Hi Jennifer how nice having you following me I am so excited to see a New Zealander and from the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Weka-Lodge Premium
Thanks Michelle! - So nice to be following a fellow-Kiwi.... and so close-by! - The Weka Family.... a parenting pair, have freely enjoyed my tiny Property here in the heart of Russell, and they have already raised countless pairs of dark-fluffy wee 'chicks-on-sticks'..(their long-legs!)..on my Property...in-behind the tiny, Yellow-Jasmine-covered Garden-shed out-front! - You'll appreciate the 'magic' of this kind of "relationship" with our 'Character'..Native Birds, I'm sure! :) -- Hence, my UserName!! --which is the 'stunning-Title' given to my humble, and carefully UN-disturbed wee Garden-shed. - The Wekas regularly nest in the thick-undergrowth behind-"Their-Shed".... and now that it is our warm, and benign Spring...here in the Magnificent Bay of Islands...(- i think we just had Winter?? :).... Well, Mr & Mrs Weka, my 'Resident-pair' have already 'done-their-wildthing!' ....so a pair of new, 'Fluff-balls-on-sticks', probably won't be too long in arriving! :) :) --- I love their loud and lusty evening (&other;-times)-calls, right-outside my House! :) .... Meantime,... I'd better 'Focus!' on this WA Business!!! -- or I may end-up fossicking for worms, along-with 'my' Wekas!! .... hahaha! ---
All the very best to you, Michelle, - and ALL who have discovered this 'most-unusual'.... & hopefully very-lucrative new Business!! :) --
Cheers, from NZ.! :) - Jen.

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner by taking your business to the next level.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,

Welcome to WA Premium! :-)

TimMcKinlay Premium
Hi Jennifer, welcome to WA!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate UNguru.

Just stopping by to say hello and to see if there's anything I can do to help you get started?

If so, just reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap :)

I also wanted to give you the link to start your training: This is where I recommend you start your training. Everything you need to know is explained within these lessons and there are tasks to complete as you go too (which I also recommend doing).

I'm super excited to share this with you, because this is the exact training I followed myself to go from newbie to full time income online!

I know you are going to love this.

The last thing I wanted to mention is that it's totally ok to ask lots of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

Because when you ask questions, you have the rare opportunity to learn from people who have achieved some incredible success, by following the exact same path you are on right now.

This is extremely powerful stuff and it's one of the biggest reasons why WA stands head and shoulders above ANY other platform I have ever tried.

I remember when I first started here I asked LOTS of questions (even though I was worried some of them were 'dumb questions' lol). And I'm glad I did, because the value I got from being able to learn from people who were already successful was absolutely priceless.

It really was a major turning point for me, and it can be for you too.

So I encourage you to ask lots of questions and get amongst this awesome community as much as possible. The more you engage with the WA community, the more you will learn, and the more successful you will become!

Anyways Jennifer, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!


P.S I also wanted to give you the heads up on some cool bonuses I've got lined up for you, if you upgrade to a Premium membership within your first 7 days!

★ Bonus #1 | Special Discount
You will get over 61% off your first month Premium membership (from $49 to $19)... which is an absolute steal! Getting everything you need to build a profitable online business for such a low price is simply a no brainer.

★ Bonus #2 | Live Case Study
Exclusive access to a Live case study that walks you through the EXACT process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes- over the shoulder. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff.

★ Bonus #3 | I Will Personally Help You Choose a Niche
One of the biggest stumbling blocks beginners face is choosing a niche. But it doesn't have to be that way. Because I'm personally going to walk you through choosing a profitable niche. Based on YOUR passion or interest! No more guesswork and no more 'fear' you've chosen the wrong niche. I am personally going to be working with you to help you find a winning niche!

★ Bonus #4 | 1-on-1 Coaching and Mentoring
I know it can be challenging when you're first starting out. So as a bonus on top of everything else I've just mentioned, I'm going to offer you personal and private access to me! I will be your mentor, your coach. I will be there for you every step of the way to make sure you reach and exceed your goals. I started right where you are now and worked my way to a full time income online. Which means I know what works and I know how to help you succeed. I am uniquely positioned to help you achieve your goals, in the shortest amount of time possible. So this is going to be a HUGE help to you going forward. Honestly, this ONE bonus alone is worth MANY times more than the cost of the Premium membership. This is going to put you in the best shape possible to achieve real success online.

There's no pressure to upgrade if you're not ready yet. I just wanted to give you the heads up now, so you know what you will get if you do decide to become a Premium member within the next 7 days. Talk soon!
