Hi I’m Debbie, I’m a wife and mom of 3 wonderful boys. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, have had many hobbies and tried many avenues to find a way to make extra money.
NEVER STOP TRYING
I started out years and years ago with my husband making Christmas wreaths and decorations, which we sold out of our basement. This was before our children came along, and we worked really hard but made very little money. Next I was introduced to an MLM Company which again I pulled my husband into. At this point we had two of our three boys. For years, we spent lots of weekends away from our children working the MLM business. Instead of making money we were going further in debt buying products to demo, and spending money for travel. We finally gave up because the time away from our children and money spent building the business did not reap the rewards as we were led to believe.
In 2010, I had my first interaction with building a website, I was making jewelry, and I was encouraged by friends and family to sell my jewelry online. I knew nothing about building a website, but went to a seminar and purchased a website at a very high cost. To build the website, you could follow a book and build it yourself, or the company would build it for you….at an additional cost! So I built it myself and then found out that I had to get my website ranked. The company would sell me a package to do the keyword searches that I would need. It turned out that all the help they promised, and all the tools that I was to have access to were actually not included in what I had already paid but were all additional cost. Meanwhile, I was not making jewelry because I was spending so much time figuring out how to build the website. So once again, I decided it was better to just cut my losses.
ENTER AFFILIATE MARKETING
My interest in Affiliate Marketing came from an email I received to watch a webinar. The person doing the webinar was offering “help” to build an Affiliate Marketing business, if you were one of the first 25 to sign up it was going to cost a thousand dollars, after the first 25 then the cost jumped to almost three thousand dollars (yikes)! I’ve been suckered into enough stuff to know that there was no way I was going to sign up. The information in the webinar did peek my interest though so I started my own online research. That is where I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate. Sign-up is free, they teach website building and help people like us create successful online businesses. Thanks to their help, I was able to create this website, and I want to help others create their websites with ease so that they can get on with building their affiliate marketing business. Wealthy Affiliate is more like a community than a company, because you get the help of other members too, there is so much giving and sharing (not like your typical 9-5 job). Try it out yourself if you are interested in creating an awesome website and making money online click here.
First and foremost I want to help others learn how to create a website that gets ranked high in the search engines, without investing huge sums of money. The cool thing and why I am so excited about Wealthy Affiliate is that there are no up sales, they tell you what you get with the Starter Membership and with the Premium Membership, and all the extras that come along with each of those platforms don’t cost you extra.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
