sylvia-image2Get to know Me and read about my Story

My name is Sylvia and I worked as a Geriatric nurse for over 20 years, doing day & night shifts, working long weekend hours until my husband’s health started to decline and I was needed at home.

There it was that I started looking online for something I could do again, but doing it of course from home.

Looking around online made me hopeful and I sometimes thought I would have found what I was looking for.

But, I am being honest with you when I say I have burnt my fingers more than once with so called “Get Quick Rich” scams, and I almost lost hope.

When I finally found Wealthy Affiliate I knew immediately I found the right place. Wealthy Affiliate is an online marketing platform where you will learn:

  • Setting up your own Website
  • Learn to specify your niche for optimum audience target
  • Learn proper use of Keyword research
  • Learn to create & write awesome content
  • Have 24/7 Support
  • And an awesome community where other WA members will engage with you & help you along the way to your online success

I must say, when I started out with Wealthy Affiliate, I was a total Greenhorn. Now I know how to create an awesome website for my group of interest and can help others to do the same.

And so can You!

One Word of Caution!no-get-rich-quick

If you are looking for a “Get Rich Quick” scheme or making money overnight, or less in a day, than don’t bother reading any further.

Because, creating a successful business needs something from you, like:

  • Dedication
  • Determination
  • Focus
  • Knowledge about your Niche
  • Willing to learn and going the extra mile
  • And… lots of patience

If you can’t come up with these things, or at least being open to it, there will be less to none success. So, choose wisely.

I hope, I could awaken your interest in starting your own online business and please remember, I am here for you if you have questions.

    They will help you build your website, and get you to the top of Google rankings, and everything you need to make money online as an affiliate marketer.
    I highly recommend the program for everyone who is willing to put in the time and work to join Wealthy Affiliate.
    Thanks for your great review,

    1. Hi Chanan,

      Thanks for your comment on my article and also the internet platform Wealthy Affiliate I am using.

      I certainly do agree with you that by joining Wealthy Affiliate everyone will get the correct, up-to-date and usuable information and tool they need to be successful with an online based business.

      I am really happy that you stopped by and taking your time, appreciated. 🙂


  2. Very straight to the point. I like how simple you wrote this one. And it is true that Wealthy Affiliate is the best source of knowledge if you want to start Online Marketing Business. Kyle and the community has done a great job on helping each other. I find it more helpful than Google.

  3. Hi Sylvia,
    Like you, I’m a woman looking for something to do at home to add to our family income. I’m a stay at home mom to two busy toddlers, and I’d like to be able to grow some sort of business to the extent that when they’re in school I can work from home, but be there for them during holidays, sick days etc.
    How did you pick the niche of “women working at home”? Did your desire for something yourself lead to a big interest in the whole idea? Or were you just tired of the whole nursing world?

    1. Hi Marlaine,

      Thanks for your comment so appreciated.

      If you go on my website and go to the “About Me” page, there, I will speak about myself and my occupational journey.

      I had a fulfilling nursing career in my country or origin (German) which I knew wouldn’t be possible to reach the same level again here in Canada, too many regulations and rules. lol and I wanted to do something new anyway.

      The idea for this website came becasue of my personal situation and I wanted to share my experience, failures and achievements with the world.

      Also, giving other stay at home women or men the confidence that there are possibilities to become successful by working from home and earn an income which is more then just pocket money.

      All the best to you


  4. Hello Sylvia
    I have really enjoyed your post on jobs women can do from home online.In today`s economy everyone is looking to earn extra income, what with the raising living standards and salaries not increasing.

    As someone looking to get started, you mentioned knowing your niche to start a website, what if one does not have enough knowledge in a field?
    I mean we all know about one thing or the other, but what happens if one does not know enough, can it still work?
    You mentioned lots of patience, what did you exactly mean? how long should I expect to wait till I can start making money with a website should I build one?
    Thanks for sharing, really appreciate.

    1. Thanks for your comment and questions.

      1) Yes, it is important that you choose a niche which you have some good knowledge off and also can build up your knowledge even further. No one is perfect and knows everything but at least have a passion about something you can improve upon.

      The audience always will know when something is poorly researched or presented.

      2) With patience I meant not to expect making it big overnight it takes time to build up your Brand and reputation of becoming an authority of your chosen niche. But in the end it is really worth it, 🙂

      Wishing you all the best to excel.


  5. Hy Sylvia,
    Its fantastic you have found a great program that allows you to be at home to help your husband, but still pursue a passion and an income. Lucky for you, you discovered this awesome Wealthy Affiliate platform.
