About Yclayton
Joined July 2017
My name is Yvette and I have 26 years of human resources and management experience in various industries. I also have career advising and teaching experience in higher education and have taught Internship Prep Seminar classes as well as Business Professional Practices, Freshman Exploring Business and Business Communication classes. In addition to teaching, I was previously a Business Experiences Manager assisting undergraduate and graduate students with finding internships and full time positions.

I have many years of experience publicly speaking to various classes, groups and audiences.

Because of my previous experiences, I am President/CEO of a student program I developed in 2002 and my company is called Building Toward the Future Student Program, LLC. Helping students in their careers with resumes, cover letters, elevator pitches, etc. is a passion of mine. I have since started to branch out and not only help students, but adults as well.

My husband and I researched different on line marketing companies and decided on WA. I am very happy we did!

Yvette,

Thanks for the follow, and, oh my, your experience in helping students and others is remarkable.

My sister was an Oakland middle school teacher for Teach For America for five years, so I understand, from secondhand and a bit of firsthand experience, how stressful the role can be. I sincerely appreciate all that you've done to bring up the world's future generation.

Will definitely need to keep up with your content.

Pet, thank you so much for the kind words. My passion for helping students started about 16 years ago and continues on today. It's awesome you and your sister share that same passion.

Wishing you all the best here in WA.

Thanks for the follow and best of luck here at WA. Your students would love you for teaching them about WA. I am actually moving to Ukraine to promote WA. They are the most highly-educated people in the world yet average salary there is about $150/mth. I can really make a difference in a lot of lives there. Thank you for helping others, after all that is what it is all about.

It's been a while good to see that beautiful smile again. How have you been doing. I had a little set back, three weeks ago I had a heart attack. I share it freely because life happens to everybody and we continue to press with our eyes and heart on the goal. So what's going on tell me?

Hi Yvette, I placed an article on your Mentor page. What it suggests is way outside my comfort zone and so I explained that to help other visitors to your site that they are not alone. I don't know anyone that could be a mentor in my town. Most people I know at work or elsewhere are very negative and think that Affiliate Marketing will not work. But I like the idea of having a mentor and can see the advantages.
I would love a comment on my website in return. Thanks in advance. Dave

Dave, thanks for the comment. I read it and wanted to let you know looking for a mentor here is your best bet if you don't have anyone anywhere else that can fit the bill. You certainly don't want a mentor to be negative...that is definitely not the point of it all.

Finding a mentor here in WA is a great idea. The people here have a common interest and as you know by now, this community is very supportive, encouraging and positive so it would make perfect sense to do that. One idea may be to contact and connect with your WA sponsor.

Thanks again for your comment. I'm heading over to your article now to leave a comment.

Wishing you all the best.

Have a great rest of the week.

yclayton Premium
Dave, if you look on your profile and go all the way to very first person that sent your "welcome to WA" message, that is your sponsor. If you still don't see who that is, it is quite fine to find people here in WA to help you.

Also, you may want to get in a group of people to help with comments, etc. When you start using someone as your "go to" person and start trusting them, that person may end up being your "informal" mentor at that point.

Have a great day.

Hi Yvette!

Thank you for the follow!

Reading your bio - you've got plenty of great experience in management and human resources.

But what really stood out (at least to me) - was where it led you to - building people up (with resumes, cover letters, etc).

I wish you all the best - with what you're doing on WA - and with your business. Keen to see where this goes. :-)

You are doing a beautiful job. You've got to have to show me how you do it. I am always open to learn. One thing that I learned as I was training working on my second Doctorate was brokenness it brought me to a place where I had to learn more about myself and it changed the person I grew to be. I love to learn. Good to see you.
Reply
yclayton Premium
Thank you for your kind words. I have been at a place if brokenness before but I keep my positivity through my family and prayer. I have seen people close to me go through doctorate degrees and it can definitely cause quite the turmoil but continue to hang in there. You got this. As well as with WA...you can do it. Find your place of peace...wherever that is. And reach out to this community when you need help.

See you at the top! ;)

Know, that's not what I meant. Sometimes we get in our own way and some people are so full of pride, selfishness and they wonder why they can't succeed. Many times building a good foundation for your life and business takes getting rid of things that will keep you from failing. So, it takes a certain amount of person brokeness to really get a grip on their lives. So, I was saying I am willing to learn from you or the person (Iron Sharpens Iron) that will help me grow just a little bit more. I hope I cleared that up. I think you are fantastic and I can learn from you.

Hi Yvette,

Great to meet you and thank you for following me.

And you are correct in saying that you are very happy you decided on WA. There is no better online marketing platform on the internet and none more honest. In fact, it is probably the only one out there that is.

And on a closing note Yvette, I would like to wish you the very best in all aspects of life and will see you along the journey through WA!!!

Thank you for sharing and the following. I really appreciate it because I am barely a week old with Wealthy Affiliates. I can use all the help I can get. Your experiences sound familiar. I did my master's degree in Student Services at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio but I traded it for entrepreneurship though student services is still my first love. I love guiding young people to make choices that could change their lives for the better. All the same let us continue to share and support each other for mutual success. Thank you for being there and I wish you the best in all your choices.

I was reading your last post and got the feeling that you had experience in communications. I jumped over to your profile and yep I was right. The reason I did this is I am an RN and studied and used motivational interviewing in my job but it spilled over into my life and changed it for the better. Thinking about how we make people feel when we interact with them is key. Thinking about how words can soothe or hurt is a must. Even if you do not agree with someone there are ways to say so that create dialog and ways to say it that create pushback as we know. If only the world were required to learn how to talk to each other what a better place this would be. I look forward to more "pearls of wisdom" from you.

Thank you for the kind words. Being in HR for so long, I didn't have a choice and was always in front of groups of people for different presentations. There was no way around it. Then it made it easier to stand in front of students to teach, so it was an easy transition.

All the best,
Yvette

Hello Yvette!

Thank you for the follow. I've added you to my network. I have a fear of speaking in front of large groups of people. I don't know how you and everyone else that speaks in public do it. I'd die of fright, or stutter through most of it. Wishing you success and happiness in your journey.

Take care,

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, Yvette thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be among the top 200 anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site (no seriously I do!) and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 5,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Hi Yclayton.
I have two degrees and studied Management at post graduate level.
I have written a 12 month course (yet to be published) for graduates. It as 3 modules of 12 lessons on Health, Wealth and Happiness. We spend years learning facts and assimilating information but no one teaches us the life skills to be happy.

Welcome to WA. Here we love to help each other.

Enjoy your journey.

I am a bit tied up with WA just now. The courses are written but need formatting and grammar checking, covers added and printing. I can send you a copy of the the first Wealth module to give you some idea of the content but I would need your email address (can't send as attachment).

I am hoping to find a partner to market the course.

All the best.

I have another question Yvette. Regarding your recent post, I noticed it was published on your profile page. And also your other posts are listed below your profile picture. Is this normal for word press? I’ve posted a couple articles now, the latest one yesterday. I had a few comments on my article yesterday. I’m learning from each post where I need to improve. In terms of keywords. I like how you distinguish your keywords and get your message across clearly in a block form.
Reply
yclayton Premium
Oh, I see where your confusion is coming in. The posts you publish here in WA under your profile are not posting to your website.

To post here in WA: From your profile page, scroll down to where it says "New Post" (right hand side of the page). Then type there. When you are done writing, it will ask you to add some tags, then hit "Publish". That's what you just saw that I published this morning.

To post to your WEBSITE: That's when you use WordPress - using the process I sent you over the weekend with going to Site Rubix>Site Manager>, etc.

Also, hopefully, when people are writing comments on your site, they are not giving you feedback instead. That's two different things and you don't want feedback published on your site.

Does that make sense now? Let me know.

Not a problem at all. Asking questions is how you learn.

Do you have any recommendations?

Hello Brittany. If you are trying to get into HR in your company, my answer is - it will all depend on the requirements of the job you are looking to get into.

Can you get your hands on the job descriptions of the jobs you are interested in at your company and see what the requirements are?

That is just one of my suggestions. I have many others. I will leave you a PM with more information since it will be rather lengthy. Please get back with me after you read it and let me know what you think.

Have an awesome day / evening.

Welcome to WA. The tips I always give newcomers are: follow the training step by step (without skipping around), read all the materials, watch all the videos, take great notes and above all-ask questions to those in this community.

Yes, those key words are very important. I am at the point right now where I am trying to get the low hanging fruit keywords: I hope this is helpful to you. Keep moving forward. Wishing you all the best.

Hello Simon. Thank you for reaching out to me. I would be happy to answer your question.

Internet marketing is completely new to me. I had never done anything like this before, but my husband and I wanted to implement things now for our retirement. There are other programs out there and I was going to join another program that costs several thousands of dollars. I just couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of money. After much research, we ran across WA. It was something that was much, much cheaper so, yes, I jumped in as a Premium Member. I felt if I was going to look into really what WA had to offer, I wanted to have access to all that was available right away. The best way to do that is become a Premium member.

Since joining, I have not been disappointed one bit. I chose a niche and took the certification training. This program gives step by step instruction that I could take at my own pace - no pressure to get through the training, plus WA gives a great deal of support. For me, being able to get assistance from Site Support and immediate help from live members in Live Chat is amazing. I really appreciate being able to obtain help at the touch of a button.

As you can see from my bio, I am all about helping others. Since this is a Pay It Forward system, I am always able to not only obtain help others here, but help other people as well. For me - that is tremendously rewarding. After being here a little under six months, I have learned so much from others and have been told I have helped others as well.

The community really is a family. If you really want to know how I feel about being here in WA, feel free to read through my blogs. As you read them, look at the comments from members. That in itself is a telling story.

My advice to you is as a free member, learn as much as possible, ask questions, start to build your site, and take it from there. For me, it was the best decision I have made. I can't say enough about the program, people, leadership, and the training. Everything you need is really right here.

I hope all of this helps. Please feel free to ask any further questions you may have. I wish you well in your journey.

Warm Regards,
Yvette

I love connecting with other HR professionals. That's awesome!

I never had an ounce of on-line marketing experience - ever! At first, it was quite challenging. But as with anything else, it gets easier over time. Also, the fact this community is amazingly helpful, supportive and positive is such a wonderful thing.

I am always sharing with my husband all that I have learned with WA and he is always quite amazed by all the information. You will learn a TON of information here. (Just take the training one step at a time and don't skip around.)

One thing to keep in mind - don't ever be afraid to ask questions. I do it constantly. I am always seeking information - especially in that search bar above...it is my WA BFF! Lol.

Reach out if you need anything or if there is anything else I can share. Wishing you all the best!

Hi Yvette,

Thank you for the follow. That's a really impressive resume. I have no doubt that you'll work hard and get everything that you set your mind to. My mother was a teacher and she dedicated her life to laying the foundations for little ones getting a good head start in life. Kudos to you.

Thank you for saying hello. I see that you are relatively new to WA also. I hope things are going well. I just looked at the BTF website. It's certainly impressive and a great idea. Students can use all the help and encouragement they can get in entering the workplace I do share some of the same work experience that you have had.. I've worked in personnel also and I've found out, to my surprise, that some large companies here in Boston are actually outsourcing the personnel "function" as it's being called now. I have also worked as a substitute teacher at the high school level so I know how students that age can benefit from a program like BTF.. I really like the fact you include parents, schools and companies. That addresses the whole picture.

I'll be following you now. Thanks again.

I truly enjoy the work I do with students. I had that started long before I came to WA and may monetize that site here as well one day. For now, I am working on a different site to get a good grasp of this niche and how to set things up.

Have an awesome weekend.

As far as the site identity, this link may be helpful... If you want to set up your site to focus on WA, follow the Boot camp training on the left of the screen. I didn't do that training since I have a niche. I followed the Certification Training.

I hope this info is helpful.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hello Yvette,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

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.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thank you so much for that. I have decided my niche - weight loss. I am very familiar with it since I, myself, have been on the journey (and still am). But I have incorporated some things into my life that have made me feel great. I hope to help others in their journey as well. Any thoughts?

I would narrow down your concept a little bit here.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Thank you. Since I originally asked you that question, I decided to be more specific and go with weight loss for females over 50. That is something that hits home for me personally that I can truly relate with. Any additional thoughts?

Yvette Welcome to the incredible world of Wealthy Affiliate. The information here may seem overwhelming at times, but follow the path to success. Two crucial trainings that will build the foundation for your success are the Getting Started and then the Affiliate Bootcamp. Follow the path that has been used by others to success and you will succeed.
The second bit of advice is begin to work on your network of connections. Follow people as they follow you. Your network will prove to be a most valuable resource and will come to your aid along the way. So I have followed you to watch your progress, why not follow me in return?
