How Did I Get HERE??
I haven’t been here for a bit and first I want to say sorry. I know there are some readers who have been waiting for a post and I haven’t delivered. Forgive me! Maybe after this post, you will know why!! <<<<little incentive to get you to read the whole thing!!
Some friends of mine are having a “challenge” to see if we can get 100 blog comments on one post. This is my post, so comment away!!
Have you seen any “about me” pages? You know, the pages where you can go to read about the blogs owner/writer? Well, I don’t have one. My readers and subscribers don’t know who I am. Everyone should have a page where their subscribers can get to know them and be able to know that the person writing the blog is a real person and not some bot or script. So here goes…
I am Lisa Hernandez (y’all know that) and I live in Southern California. I have 6 kids, 2 grand babies and 3 dogs (2 Cocker Spaniels and Terrier poodle). I have been married almost 9 years to my hubster Tony. No, I didn’t have those kids in the last 9 years!! My youngest is 9 and she’s was given to me by the grace of God a couple of years ago. Love that little gal!!
My family calls me Roonie (and other variables, we are from the Midwest) Roon, Roonie-toon, Aunt Roonie, G-ma Roonie, etc…hence the domain name www.RoonieHernandez.com
Y’all can call me Roonie, but Lisa will be fine and will probably get you an answer faster!
K, so why am I here?? Or how did I get here?
On a fluke in 2009, I came across Twitter at a Joyce Meyer Conference. I had never heard of it and thought it was the coolest site out there! So many people and so many good links they were tweeting! I was in heaven; I am a news junkie and love the news from all over the world. Twitter had it all!!
I saw that people were tweeting about making money at home. I have tried most of my adult life to make money at home (Amway, Avon, Pampered Chef, Monavie, etc…) I have been working for years for someone else and I thought if I could make money at home from the computer…life would be good! I could stay at home with the kids and watch the dollars roll in! (BONK!! WRONG ANSWER! It takes time and effort to get started.)
I have no problems meeting new people on the social sites, so I thought how hard can that be? I can meet new people and make some money doing it! I got my first 900 Twitter followers by talking to people everyday and manually following them! Talk about some work!! (I have since automated!! Still get on there 2-3 times a week).
So I set out to get my own website…didn’t know a darn thing about them, called some website people and they wanted anywhere from 1200.00 to 3500.00 dollars to set up my site!! Well, THAT thought went out the window! I didn’t know anything about blogging or WordPress. (Gives all the newbies some HOPE!!)
Then I met a really cool guy, Adam Spiel of Pro Host Management (on Twitter, cause I talk to everyone!!) and he said I could go to his site and order a website package with hosting and everything for about 30 bucks a month! He was having a special on his packages and that would be the package for me! I told him I didn’t even have a site and he said no problem, we’ll get you one!
So I did! And I called him all the time asking him what to do next. He said get a squeeze page. I say “What the heck is a squeeze page?” He said write a report. I say “On what? I don’t know anything!”
My first site (which I haven’t done anything with in over a year) is www.cookingwithroonie.com (love to cook, hate to blog about it!!) Y’all can check it out, but it needs some TLC!
I didn’t understand what it meant to find a problem and fix it. So Adam suggested I get a mentor. OK so now I need a mentor! Well, crap! I am thinking, what the heck is a mentor??
Adam knew a guy by the name of Dean Holland from this big guru type guy, Alex Jeffreys. I couldn’t afford Alex Jeffreys at the time, and Dean had been through AJ’s class and was making it big! So I joined Dean Holland’s Starting With Marketing Class. That class taught me how to set up my blog and gave me a free gift to start building my list. OK, Cool.
But I need my own product. I can only give away someone else’s product for a short time.
I needed a product to attach a squeeze page to! My squeeze page! So in my Twitter and Google searching days, I found John Thornhill. Now, me being the diligent marketer I am… I Google EVERYONE!! So John Thornhill got Googled and Googled because his class is a little more than I wanted to spend (after buying all the crap that I thought was gonna help me out) and then he got Googled again! There is nothing I could find that say anything bad or scammy about JT. I love him! I even discussed the class with my hubby who doesn’t know anything about Internet Marketing and doesn’t care!
So I took the plunge! John Thornhill’s Masterclass! (You can too, for real cheap! 4.95 trial if you want to!)
In JT’s class, I am learning what it is to be a real Internet Marketer. The highs and lows, the good and bad. I am learning what to do and what NOT to do. I am also learning how to make my OWN product.
From a factory worker who wanted something more out of life. Like me. Like YOU!
Now that’s cool.
Wanna know where I’ve been lately? Taking care of kids, dogs and babies. When I get home from work every night, I don’t know what I will find. With 6 kids, every day has different challenges, fun and excitement! Some days are better than others, but everyday is AWESOME!!
Just wish I could get to the computer more often!!
