Welcome, my name is Deanna.
I guess this is where I tell you something about myself and how I got started in affiliate marketing.
I am a retired hairdresser, having owned my own business for many years while still raising my four children.
Being a single Mom with 4 children and having my own business kept me very busy.
So when I retired I was bored. Plus, I wasn’t rich.
Wanting to find something to do from home I began to search on-line to get some ideas of what was available to supplement my retirement income.
You’ve seen the ads, Stay at Home Mom Earns $5000 a week, See how here.
Little did I know that the minute you look into work at home ideas online that you will receive all kinds of offers to sign up for the next latest and greatest “get-rich-quick” program.
My Story-Working From Home
After researching many sites, I got interested in affiliate marketing. It seemed like the easiest way to get started.
It looked like the simplest path for someone with very few skills in the computer area.
When I first started affiliate marketing I read a book from a “guru” and it really peaked my interest, but his course was way too expensive for me.
So I just kept searching the internet to see what was available.
After many weeks of researching affiliate marketing, keyword research, domains and all the unique words affiliated with the internet, I started to understand it, a little.
After joining some small and simple training courses that were fairly reasonable, I was not having any success.
Shiny new objects
In the beginning I jumped around a lot and went from one new shiny object to the next, looking for the right one.
Some I tried for a while and others were just looking for more money. Upsells, Upsells, Upsells!
I got involved in a couple that had you purchase their program or software and after a few months they just closed down, taking my money with them.
You have to be careful what you sign up for.
There are no get-rich-quick schemes out there that work, mostly they just try to get more and more money from you. They are the ones getting rich.
I tried many sites and tried many programs, including coaching without much success.
Some of them just closed down, some were o.k. but didn’t explain well enough and some just wanted more money.
How would you like to become an entrepreneur? Sounds fascinating doesn’t it? Well, it’s possible to achieve success in the on-line world and earn very good money.
Plus, it’s the type of business you can pass on to your children and grandchildren. Wouldn’t that be neat?
That’s why I want to help keep you from making the same mistakes I did.
It can get very discouraging and make you want to give up.
I know my family thought I was on a wild goose chase. My son would say the whole affiliate marketing system is nothing but a scam.
But being stubborn, I kept searching.
Finding Wealthy Affiliate
Then I found Wealthy Affiliate. I studied it for a few days and then went looking for something better. Get rich quick! MORE MONEY!
At that time, I was chasing my tail for quite a while and was ready to quit this venture.
Then I stumbled on Wealthy Affiliate again and it had developed so much that I signed up for the premium account that same day.
WA is the real deal.
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal.
They are many members who are willing to help you every step of the way. I think last count there was over 2 million members. Some very active and some not so active.
Many have achieved much success financially and otherwise.
Read my review of Wealthy Affiliate and you will see it’s the only course you will ever need.
WA has everything you need to get started:
- community interaction
- boot camp
- 2 free websites for the newbie.
Wealthy Affiliate is FREE to join and the training is excellent.
But remember, affiliate marketing is work. You have to write lots of content and a host of other tasks to do.
But the work is well worth the time and energy spent. Plus, even a beginner like me could understand how to complete the tasks. My advice to you is stay on one path, the Wealthy Affiliate path and success will come.
Hopefully, this post will encourage you to take that first step toward financial freedom. See you on the inside.
What else do I do?
In my spare time I love to cook, bake, and entertain.
I am thinking of writing a family style blog with all the different recipes handed down in my family from generation to generation for all my family to enjoy.
I also love going to all my grandsons baseball and football games.
I also helped start a diet and exercise class at the Elks lodge for all it’s members.
I also make a dessert once a month for the Veterans when they have their free spaghetti dinner at the Elks.
Very rewarding, because they really enjoy the homemade desserts that I love to prepare.
Why I want to help you
I want to help people to earn money online because today many retired people do not have a good retirement income. I know what that’s like.
Many live on social security only, even though they worked hard all the lives they don’t have any extra income through no fault of their own.
Life has a way of dealing many hard blows, which many times make us dip into retirement fund or savings.
You never know what’s ahead, a bad business deal, sick child, parents or other unexpected upsets.
I know, I’ve been there.
Hopefully, if you are willing to work hard and follow all the steps, you too, can achieve financial independence.
My goal is to do all that I can to help you achieve financial success and help you have a blast doing it.
Hopefully, you will join me in our quest for financial independence.
It’s very good to meet you and I look forward to seeing you in Wealthy Affiliate.
