Hello, I am Barbara and I’m going to present various programs that are available on the web for various reasons. Some are just there to get as much money as possible from you, others that are pretty good and have possibilities and one, Wealthy Affiliate, that is a great opportunity if your goal is to have an online business and really learn how to make it successful.
How Did I Get Here?
After I retired from my job of 25 years I realized right away that I wasn’t ready to retire so I immediately started looking for another job. When I first started looking I was looking in the field in which I had been working for the prior 15 years, that of a Data Warehouse Developer. I soon realized that the majority of the data warehousing jobs in my local area wanted MS SQL Server BI development experience and I only had Oracle experience. There were a few jobs around that matched my skill set but not all that much to choose from.
Then I decided that maybe I should do something completely different so I enrolled in online University Extension courses in Web Development. By this time I had pretty much decided that I wanted to work from home what ever job I ended up with it needed to allow me to work remotely. After 3 years of looking for a job with no success I decided that I wanted to try and earn money online somehow. After running through a few scammers and spending way too much money on hiring people to develop my websites and do the SEO and social networking I somehow landed upon Wealthy Affiliate and created a starter account.
After that it didn’t take long for me to figure out that I had found exactly what I was looking for. I just wished that I had found Wealthy Affiliate before I spent all that money that I didn’t really have and get myself deeply into debt. WA offers everything anyone would need to get an online business going and get and keep traffic coming to your business website.
Well, here we go! I hope you enjoy it!
