About Ybckathrin
Joined June 2016
I have done many things in my life. Some were good, some were not so good. I have been married for over 20 years when my husband died. We had two daughters together, that were 7 and 8 year of age at that time.

That was my first big challenge I guess. Being left with two children and two businesses. Our main business was a Transport Company in Switzerland, that's where I am from, my second business, I was a self employed Massage Therapist.

So, there had some decisions to be made. I decide to sell our Transport Company and kept going with my Massage Business. Of course back then were lots of rules and regulations and Benefits would not cover Massages. So I decided to be a registered Nurse and went to Nursing School. After I got my diploma, I did both, I worked as a nurse and did massages as well as raising my kids. At that time I could get registered with Health Benefits and they would cover the therapies I did.

1998 was when one of my daughters decided, she wants to go to Canada. Me myself had that idea for a long time before, but never did because I took care of my sick parents until they died, then the kids were in a "not ideal" age..... .

There were many reasons why not to do it,but not many to actually do it. So, that was the cue for me to "last minute" find out what to to, so we could all together live in Canada. It took us 1 1/2 years until we got the immigration papers.

So, now we're in Canada, non of us could speak English back then, the girls finished high school here, so they could go to college and get their education.... . So now it's my turn. But easier said than done. I could not register here in Canada as a nurse, couldn't even work as a Health Care Aid, but lucky me, I could register as a Massage Therapist. Which I did and worked for several years. Life goes on and I wanted to do some more education, which brought me totally away from my origin. Now I'm working as a Health & Safety Adviser in the Construction Industry, which is quite slow now too.

After trying to find something else, I decided to look into Working From Home. I came across a lot of "opportunities", like selling Traffic, Binary Option trading, Network Marketing and so on. Again some good, some not so good. I've spend a lot of energy, sleepless nights and of course money, until I found the right support at Wealthy Affiliates. So, that means I'm still doing it and I'm excited about it.

I'm not saying all of them were bad. So, I'm hopping with me sharing this with you, we can both be successful.

Thanks for reading and your support!

Kathrin

PS: I might come back from time to times and make some changes.

Hi Kathrin:

Thanks for following me. Thank you also for sharing your story with us. How old are your two children now? It can be hard being a widow. But you are obviously very strong.

Have a great day and let me know if I can help in any way.

Kathrin, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Kathrin.

Thanks Kyle. I know I'm slow. But eventually I'm getting there. I'm a little shy in writing. My language is not English. I do have some issues with finding out how to get started, getting a good website of the ground. But I just have to catch up and follow the training. Sometimes I don't know how to ask, so I'm working on it until I find out.

I wrote my first blog today. I hope I'm not toonly far off.

Yeah, sometimes that can be an issue asking the right questions and how to ask it. Don't worry, you will get the hang of things and if you ever want to run anything by me or the community, do ask. There is no such thing as a dumb question, ever. :)

Thank you mckm. Yes I am fortunate. But I do miss my old country sometimes, so I will go for a visit in the second part of July. Yeeeeeh me. And yes, I can use a lot of help. I'm struggling myself through though. My biggest issues is to learn about blogging and how to do that. As well as to find the way set everything up to make an income. Which I desperately need.

Now I wish you a wonderful day,
Kathrin

Kathrin, would you like me to look at the blog you're struggling with? Sometimes it helps to learn other people's thoughts. You could tell me what sort of help you needed, such as spelling, grammar, arranging ideas or sentences etc. The sort of help a teacher would give you.

Another suggestion is to read other people's blogs, especially ones in your niche.

Cheers
Margaret

Yes I would, but I don't even know how to do that. I'm going through the videos and I'm probably to much of a perfectionist, meaning I have an idea and then I watch a video and loose my idea. You guys all have such nice posts and blogs on your profile and I haven't even found out how to do that. I also have to admit, I have a full time job and am sitting on the computer all day long. When I get home, I'm so tired and can't think anymore.

Thanks Kevin for asking. I'm still working on getting the website up and running. I'm a little slow, since I have to do that in my lunch break. But I'm hoping to get it done over the weekend. I'm sorry, I'm a slow learner. But I'm hoping to be able to reduce my working hours and start making money online. My ultimate goal is to quit my JOB by at least at the end of June. That would mean I need an income of about $2000 with my business. I'm really hoping that is possible. I am planning on getting a premium Membership.

What are the payment option? Does it have to be a credit card or can it be paypal? I've lost my cc and need to wait for the new one to come. I just ordered it today. They say it takes up to 10 days to get it.

Enjoy your weekend,
Kathrin Furegati

Yes, you absolutely can reach and surpass your goals through the training here at WA Kathrin. In most cases, it will take you longer than June to reach the income goal of $2000 monthly. It took me 3 months to get to the $2000 monthly mark through promoting WA. My results are not typical though and I have been working full-time online since 2002. I believe realistically for you to reach that goal you will need to work on your website for a good 6 - 12 months (and longer). This is a long term project, which by following and acting on the training, can potentially go on paying you an income for many years. It does take time for your website content to rank on the search engines and build momentum so that you start to get targeted traffic to your niche website.

WA provide the option to upgrade to Premium via credit card or Paypal.

Enjoy your weekend too!

That's ok, if it takes longer. Hopefully not much longer, but I will be on a holiday in July, so I guess I have to take that in consideration.

But we're supposed to dream big, aren't we?

I started adding about me on my website. I'm still a little confused about the site, but I'm getting there. Yes, I would love to sign up for the yearly membership, but I'm afraid I can't do that before payday (15th). Work is short and the US$ is quite high to our CAD$

kevinmj Premium
As you progress through the step by step training it will start to become much clearer Kathrin. I always advise to take your time as you don't want to miss any important steps. You may need to go through all the courses at least 2/3 times.

This is a long term project where you have to lay the foundations in the correct format right now. Sure, you will always go back and go over any important steps but traffic can start to flow to your site quicker if the early stages of your site are laid out as per the training.

Yes the yearly membership is the way to go to build long term momentum.

Have a great week!

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! :)
