Welcome To My Site,
My Name Is Joanne,
l live In North Carolina, I Love The Warm Weather. I Moved Here 35 Years Ago. I Am A Mother Of 4 and Grand Mother Of 3, Almost 4. I Love To Garden And Survived The “Kid” Days, With A Lot Of Humming And Humor.
Do What It Takes Club
I Have Always Done Some Kind Of Work On The Side To Make Ends Meet. I Call It The Do What It Takes Club. I Knew How To Start A Business, But Having 4 Children Made It Difficult To Leave The Home. I Did Everything, From Painting And Baby-Sitting On To Selling. Anything, So My Journey Selling Began Early. Direct Sales And Multi-Level (MLM) Sales
Over The Last 13 Years, I Have Learned How To Start Me Business Online. In My Early Days, I Was Constantly Online Looking For Ways To Make Money At Home.
I Started My Online Journey On ebay And Of Course, Ran Out Of “STUFF” To Sell. So I Started Shopping The Local Thrift Stores And Yard Sales.Talk About A Lot Of Work For Pennies? It Took Time, And A Lot Of Energy Just To Find Quality Stuff. Then You Had To Cart It Home, Make Sure It Worked Or Was In Selling Condition, This Meant Cleaning It. More Costs And Energy.
After You Have Accomplished All This. You Are Just Beginning. Now You Have To Write A Key Word Rich Post Describing You Stuff. Sounds Easy, Right? Well, If You Do Not Research Your Stuff, You Will Be Out Sold Every Time! Who. What, Where, And When Is This Stuff Already Been Sold And For How Much?
Next, I Tried Drop Shipping. Hahaha, I Was A Drop Shipper On ebay When Drop Shipping Wasn’t Cool. That’s How Long I Have Been Online. Now We See Drop Shipping Everywhere!
I Tried The Online Surveys, They Felt Like Such A Scam To Me. Too Much Like A Scam For Me. I Don’t Know So Many Questions And So Many Offers? It Just Felt Like Too Much For Some Points To Add Up To Ca$h. I wanted Money, I’m Very Willing To Work For It If It Makes Sense.
I Have An Etsy Shop. Only Now I Crochet Rugs For A Hobby. I Still Make Them But Do Not Rely On Them For My Income. 🙂 I Usually Buy More Yarn With The $$$. Selling For Supply And Demand Was Stressful. All These Adventures Did Alright, But I Couldn’t Retire With Them, So I was Still Looking For A Way To Work At Home Online.
The Internet Is A Great Place To Earn A Living, You Can Too.
Finding That Little Pot Of Gold
I Always Have Been Fascinated With Affiliate Marketing Since I Ran Across It Years Ago, In That ebay Mess. This Time I Was Looking For Income. Not Just Residual Income Businesses (My Retirement Income) That I Could Do At My Computer.
My First Stop Was Joining This “New” Company. They Were Trying To Be A Drop Shipper And An Affiliate Marketing Company And Have A Pay Out Structure Like A MLM Company; All In Under One Roof, Like A Mall. I Love a Challenge.
End Results. It Did Not Work! 🙁 I Had To File 39 ‘Did Not Ship” Cases against them From Customers Who Were Going To File Against Me If I Didn’t. Talk About Stress.
I Always Try To Walk Away With The Lesson Instead Of Complaining, You could say “The Bright Side Of Things”. Mistakes Are NOT FAILURES, They Are Just Learning Stones Along The Path Of Your Journey. NEVER CALL YOURSELF A FAILURE OR YOU FAILED. You Only Fail When You Quit!
I Learned A Lot In The Few Months I Worked With These Folks. I Learned A Lot Of Ways To Find FREE Traffic. And So Many Other Things.
I Was Admin To A Group Of Interested Folks They Were Sending To Me For This New Business. I Have Since Made This Facebook Group My Own, And I Personally Mentor Folks Who Need Help With Affiliate Marketing. What A Blessing
I Attended A “Live Webinar” By AWOL Academy. They Want You To Invest About $15,000 Dollars. And AWOL Will Offer To Finance It. I Wrote My Experience In A Review..
Here’s Your Clue
Even The Webinar At AWOL Academy Is Not Live, THAT Should Be a Clue. He Has Such A Great Up-Sell And I Wanted To Learn This So Bad. So I Purchased The 99 Dollar Program, What A WASTE O f Time And Money!
I Was Frustrated And Felt Scammed, Twice In One Year.
It’s Just A Lesson
When You Walk Away With The Knowledge, It’s Just A Lesson. I Gained So Much More Than Anything I Lost. I Learned I Really Like Helping People Succeed Online.
I Learned Fast That Most Of These Companies Were Not Going To Help Me Out. Even If They Had A Great Affiliate Program, It Was Not Going To Serve Me. Their Training Was Just Too Hard To Understand For The Average Marketer, Never Mind A Beginner. Support Was Also Nowhere To Be Found.
Then I Started To Run Across More Affiliate Marketing Courses, And It Renewed That Flame. I Knew It Was Flexible Enough To Follow On My Own Rules. Setting My Own Time ALLOWED Me To Learn At My Own Pace, Without Leaving My Job Because That Was A Problem.
Back To The Trenches
Back To My Search, Determined To Find A More Trusted Company To Help Me Out After My Last 2 Ordeals. I Was Looking At Reviews, And I Ran Across Wealthy Affiliate. All The Reviews Wealthy Affiliate Had Were Promising And Positive.
