Start Here

Hello, it’s so nice to meet you.  You’re about to invite some new excitement into your life and I’m thrilled for you!  If you haven’t met me yet…please make sure to take time to get acquainted and read my “About Me” page.  If we’re going to work together, you should know who I am and I’m going to want to learn all about you too.


Financial Nest Egg is in the business of showing you how to start and grow your business.  And while you’re doing that, you can learn about ways to keep and invest the money you’ll earn.

Financial Nest Egg is proud to be associated with the best online learning platform on the planet…Wealthy Affiliate.  In-depth training and coaching will put you in the position to take your new, or existing, on-line business to levels unimaginable.

There are a bunch of different ways you can earn an income with an online business.  But, most can be categorized within the following 3 areas:

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Blogging
  • Community
  • Reviews

BUT FIRST, let’s get your brain ready for success.

A few moments ago you clicked the “Getting Started” button … CLICK!  Easy, wasn’t it?  You’re taking the first steps to starting your own business. TA DA!


Are you starting to feel woozy?

Is it creeping in yet?  All those thoughts chattering and mouthing off in your mind.  Those thoughts that say:  Are you nuts?

  • I won’t understand.  I’m not that great with computers.
  • I don’t have money to start a business!stamp-114438_1920
  • I’ve tried this internet marketing thing before.
  • I might fail.
  • I can’t tell my family or friends – they’ll laugh at me…AGAIN.
  • Is this another scam?
  • This is going to be hard!
  • Am I crazy?  I can’t do this.
  • What business should I start?  I have no idea!

Hey, don’t have a panic attack!  I’ll help you every step of the way.  Breathe!  GOOD.

Oh.  You’re NOT feeling woozy?  You’re glad to be here?  GOOD!


Then Let’s Get Started

Just in case any of those demons on list about 4 inches up are scratching at your conscience, I need you to know and understand only 3 little things, 4 really.

All you really need to get started is to,

  1. Be brave
  2. Be open-minded and coachable
  3. Be consistent, and

That’s it!  Viola.  This process is going to be easy…but hard.

Hard?  I forgot to tell you.  This is no “get rich quick” scheme.  No.  I mean it.  If you’re looking for FAST money – this ain’t it.  If you’re looking to build something meaningful – you’re in the right place.

This is going to take work.  And tenacity.  And stick-to-it-nis.  Can you stick it out with me?  And don’t be afraid to ask questions.  The community I’m about to introduce you to is phenomenal.  I wouldn’t have made it without their support, expertise and nurturing and I’m ready to share me (and them) with you.

Let’s hit those 4 items one at a time.

board-939244_1920Be Brave

You’ve been sucker punched?  Yeah…me too and if you’re like me, you’ve probably started several different internet businesses and lost money and patience.  You’ve seen the 2 a.m. infomercials, and through sleepy eyes thought, EUREKA!  You get all the books and binders.  You buy new office supplies.  You read those books and fill out the binders and answer the questions.  You find meetings in your neighborhood.  You go.

Then you think to yourself…I hate Real Estate, or I never saw myself in Import/Export, or “I have to get my Series 7 License??  That’s expensive”.  Then, silently, those books disappear under the bed or in the closet never to be seen again.  You never speak of it.  Or, maybe you forge ahead enthusiastically.  You commit.  Then you sit back and wait for the money to roll in.  That’s what they told you.  That’s what you expected.

You’ve done Multi-Level Marketing (you know…MLM).  It was big in the 80’s and still big today.  Some have been successful.  Some have lost their friends and family because of it.

Be brave.  You don’t have to “duck & cover”.  Get a website (we’ll help you).  Start your own blog.  Pick your own passion.  Start for free.  And you can stay free if you want.  You grow into your success.  Feels better, yes?

mindset-743161_1920Be Open Minded and Coachable

Do the training.  Ask silly questions.  It’s ok to be confused.  Get stuck.  That’s okay, too.  We’ll help you find the answer to all of your questions.  Then practice.  Remember that old adage “practice makes perfect”?  Still true.  With enough practice, challenges soon become second nature.  Like my piano lessons.  Hated them.  Really.  But now…I’m so glad I practiced.  I make beautiful music because of it.

Be Consistent

Everyday make it your promise to practice consistently.  Being consistent does this:  it grows your confidence; it builds self-motivation; it improves performance, it builds a solid foundation of thinking and being.  Think of an Olympic hopeful.  Do you think they can get to the Olympics without being consistent in their training?  An Olympian has to be determined, focused, committed, and tough, both physically and mentally.  Can you do that?

Last, but not least…

cropped-money-549161_1920.jpgBe Patient

Remember what I said earlier?  This is NOT a get rich quick scheme.  This will take work, diligence and patience.  You plant the seed, water it and then you have to let it grow.  You will not make thousands in a day, week, or month.  It might take many months and upwards of a year.  But are you willing to lay the foundation for success that will last you and your family the rest of your lives?  Are you willing to be brave, coachable, consistent and patient?

Me too.

When you join Wealthy Affiliate, I’ll see you and add you to my network right away!  You’ll be working with me personally – and you’ll love me.  Really!  Our community is my sanctuary and my place to chill out.  I hope you come chill with me, and I hope you like it there!

Now, let’s get started.

  1. This sounds great. I get your support and Wealthy Affiliate to help me build websites. Who would I be selling for? You make it sound so easy! I can make money and start a business that I want to choose. This can all be started for free. Who wouldn’t jump in and give it a shot. Can I bring my existing website over to Building your Nest Egg? Thanks for the information.

    • I’m so glad you’ve found this site to be beneficial and informative! Cool. You ask, who would you be selling to? This is the good part…You get to make that determination. Once you’ve developed a niche (your specialty), you get to choose the affiliates your want to represent, then present that information to a specific and targeted market. As point 2 on my “getting started” page outlines, you can promote someone else’s products and earn commissions. We get to be the middle man…we get to do all the foot work for our customers. Who doesn’t appreciate that? 🙂 You choose only the products or services you would like to highlight and recommend. Seek out the best of the best services – typically services you use and love!

      The best part about working with affiliates? No warehousing, no postage, no returns…the affiliated companies do all that. They appreciate us sending traffic and potential customers their way – and we appreciate the commission for doing so. Win. Win!

      You absolutely can bring over an existing site. The amazing thing about Wealthy Affiliate is 2-fold: You can start a brand new business with a newly constructed site, or you can bring over an existing one and learn how to grow your business and increase awareness to your brand. When you’re ready to do so, let me know and I’ll walk you through the process.

      We’d be so excited to work with you! Reach out to me here for more information!

      You have the best day ever, and thank you so much for your interest!

    • Hi and thank you so much! I’m truly passionate about helping others and I’m glad it comes across that way. I believe in being caring, genuine, and supportive and I live by a true “pay it forward” mentality. I was brought up that way – and want to share myself and what I know with others.

      Your words mean a lot! Thank you for stopping by, I’m honored you took time to read my information and I hope I inspired you today.

      Peace, and make it a great day.
