Hey, Welcome

What in the actual hell am I doing? 

I have no clue. None. Zip. All I know is that I want, no, I need, to be in control. To be in control of my TIME, and MONEY, allowing me the freedom to go where I want to go, while doing what I want to do. Spending more time with my family and less time punching the clock. It has been a long, hard year and a bit for everyone and I know I am not the only person out there needing a change. The old status quo that worked for our parents just doesn’t work for me anymore. You know what I am talking about, 40 plus years working 9-5 at the same job counting down the days to your big retirement. Hopefully by the time you are able to retire you are able and healthy enough to maybe travel a bit, nothing fancy as one has to make sure that RRSP lasts us till you are done. You might be able to get out in the garden or enjoy other hobbies you never had time for if the arthritis and failing eyesight allows. UGH

So here I am. Hello!picture of me

Hello my name is SharlaAnn and this is my very first blog post. I have 4 kids between the ages of 21 and 13. I am a Registered Massage Therapist by day. By night, learning everything there is to know about making money online. I enjoy gardening, hiking, fishing, pretty much all things outdoors. In the winter I like to crochet, and dabble in the fiber arts. I just started spinning in January and already own 2 spinning wheels. It is a highly addictive and expensive hobby! I read pretty much every single day. Oh and also in January I started doing virtual fitness challenges which I am absolutely loving. WOW the beginning of 2021 brought on the start of many new things for me.cooking over campfire

And now it’s June.

Where has the time gone? I’ve been dipping my toes into the online world for about a year now. I started out with ecommerce. Ecommerce just isn’t for me at this time, I have some personal issues with dropshipping. I know lots of people have made lots of money using that business model. I just couldn’t do it. After ditching the dropshipping I thought I would sell locally handmade products on line. I lined up my suppliers, set everything up and now spend a good chunk of my time hoping there are no orders to fill because

  1. we are leaving for the weekend
  2. I am really tired and don’t feel like packing/delivering orders
  3. I have, but don’t really want to produce my own products
  4. I dream of becoming a snowbird sooner rather than later and don’t want to be tied down to an actual physical business

AFFILIATE DISCLAIMER

My online store is now closed, I just didn’t want to be tied down for the long term.

All of that led me here.

Here to this never before navigated (by me) world of affiliate marketing. A world of unexplored, untamed lands. Unforeseeable dangers, countless riches, amazing adventure, and I am going to conquer it all!! I haven’t quite figured out the when or how or any thing really. After all I am just at the very beginning of my amazing adventure. I sure do hope you come along with me. I plan on sharing every part of this story as it unfolds.

 

Please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.

  1. Hi SharlaAnn,
    So nice to meet you! And thank you for your visit to my website! So I am returning your kind action. I celebrate your new blog! I read your post and there are SO many things you can write about. Spinning – what that’s like and the equipment needed. Write about your experiences as a massage therapist. And so much more. And there are many ways to earn money online – ebooks is a good start and sell on Amazon – I do. Stay in touch!

    1. Hello Lesly,
      It is lovely to meet you too! Spinning is fun, I am still really new at it and by no means an expert. I will probably write about it someday. I also LOVE being a massage therapist and will most likely write about that one day as well! The possibilities are endless. Maybe one day I will write an e book. Right now there is just so much to learn. Thank you so much for stopping by.

  2. Hi SharlaAnn,
    This is really funny. I too thank you for your visit to my site. The other person who said that is a friend that I worked with in her blog community for almost 4 years.
    I liked your first post, it showed a lot of interests that you have.
    Btw my son works as a massage therapist, just getting back to it in Canada as we open up. What would you say to someone just starting out in this business?
    Enjoy your learning and stop by my site again (I just launched a new site and blog)
    Nice to meet you!

    1. Hi Kathryn,
      I am also in Canada!!! Are you asking what I would say to someone just starting out blogging or as a massage therapist? For either, keep an open mind, you have to be willing to learn and grow. For massage therapy there is so much I could say on that topic! Lol.
      Thank you so much for stopping by. It was nice to meet you as well. Good luck on your new site and blog.
      SharlaAnn
