Whew! I Needed This Today!

Last Update: September 19, 2018

Whew!! After the week I've had, I really needed some good news today.

I just finished my Online Entrepreneur Training!

I can't brag enough on how wonderful this training has been for me and how awesome this community is. I really do love what I am doing!!

I know, it's taken me long enough. But, finally, I've completed it and right now I am having a feeling of accomplishment. It's such a nice feeling when you finish a goal.

Yesterday, I had the wind completely knocked out of my sails. I was working on a new article and when I went to my Amazon Associates Account, to my surprise, they had put the skids to my account. Totally shut me down. I was devastated!! What had I done wrong?!

I had not received a word from them so I was hoping this was an error. Ha! No error!! Totally my fault.

Are you wondering what I had done wrong? Well, so was I. I called Amazon and spoke to the sweetest lady. She reissued the e-mail they had supposedly already sent me, and informed me of my transgression.

I had listed the price on the items I was recommending. That is a no-no. Only Amazon can list their prices. Did you guys all already know that? I have no idea how I've missed this valuable information all this time.

I thoroughly recommend, if you haven't already read your Amazon Associates Agreement, do so immediately. I'd read it once, but apparently I missed a lot. So now I am in the process of going over it again and making notes.

They allowed me to reapply after I had corrected every single post on my website. But they gave me a new Amazon ID. That means I've had to go over every single post again and everywhere I've placed an Amazon Item, I've had to redo it with my new ID. UGH!!

Hopefully that is all done now and tomorrow will be a new day. Believe it or not, I'm not discouraged. I am tired, though. I'm taking off for the rest of the day. Then tomorrow it will be full steam ahead. Onward and Upward!!

All the best,

Thanks so much. It's actually taken me 5 months. I can't believe it took me that long. We have had some illness and that has slowed me down. Anyway, I'm so thankful for the wonderful training.
On to Bootcamp!!! YAY!!
Good luck with your training also. Keep at it!!
All the best,
Wendi :)

You're welcome, Shaunna. That's why I shared this. If it can help someone, then it's worth it for me.
I was still in the probation period and had gotten my 3 sales, so they were evaluating whether or not to take me off of probation. LOL, I told my husband this was the first time I've ever been on probation!! And look what I went and done!! :)
