    Hey, Folks. Aunt Lynn here.
    I have come to BHW seeking knowledge... things they would not teach me of in college...
    Seriously, I used to work at a huge university in California, and I was almost ready to retire. (Yeh, guys... you're taking to your freakin' granny! lol) ...and then, like to so many in our fine USA, it happened. I was diagnosed with breast cancer the week of my 50th birthday. Three surgeries, F*cking Hell chemo, and radiation, whick took over a year. My treatment totaled over $2,000,000.00. We all love to see those long strings of numbers, but NOT when it's in the form of a bill with our name on it. (This is, I learned, the #1 reason for a person to need to declare bankruptcy in the US. Outrageous medical costs. A whole other topic.) Suffice it to say, however, that I did lose everything I owned as a result. I tell you this, my friends, because I want you to keep that point in the back of your minds. Enjoy your lives, for sure. Date beautiful people, party, and make the rounds in your Lambo. AND, put some money aside for the future. Make sure you have health insurance. Yes, I AM your Mom giving you a lecture. Listen up, you punk. ;-)
    All this to tell you that I am here to learn as much as I can from you. I need to set up some income streams that really work, on the grand scale that only the internet can provide for us.
    Life is an amazing and wonderful thing, and I am extremely grateful to still be here. AND, I'm not going to live the second half of my Life (God Willing) in a lowly style. I want my own f*cking Lambo, dammit. (At least a nice Mercedes...) AND, I want my own home again. How can I be The Crazy Cat Lady, when I'm forced to rent from a landlord that only allows ONE cat?! (OK, I have three - all identical silver tabbies from the same litter, that I adopted from the SPCA. They are the Pet Boys - Manny, Moe, and Jack. As long as they don't all sit in the windows at the same time, no one knows it's not the same cat. NO ONE gets to steal my Joy.)
    So, I've done the first 55 years wearing a White Hat. I'm here to tell you - Aunt Lynn is 'going rogue.'
    I would also like to acquire enough knowledge to teach - (yeh, that's what I do.) others how to start their own online businesses. I think that helping other people raise themselves up out of their circumstances, and really helping them become financially successful would be the frosting on the 'I kicked Cancer's Ass' cake. Much Love to you all. Your Aunt Lynn. XXOO

    You have a new friend!

    Thank you, Super11! I was literally DEAD for a few minutes at the end of chemo... I'd better have a good attitude! lol Seriously, nothing bothers me anymore! ENJOY your Life! :)

    Thank you! :)

    I Love you, too, Donde… XXOO

    Thank you, Sweetie. You have a new friend, too. I see so much 'lack of caring' in the world right now... we need to change that, one person at a time. XXOO

    Thank you! Trying to figure out which type of online biz to start first is a bit daunting, but I know I can figure this out with a little help. XXOO

    While you get used to things, you could start a blog and detail everything you went through with your cancer treatment etc as you may be able to provide insight for those going through a similar thing.
    It will help you to learn how to set up a blog etc

    Yes, I have thought about that... ;-)
    I do think I need to go for something more sales-oriented ($$$), in addition to that, though. From things I have read, it takes a long time for a blog to see an income. Do you agree?

    lol. What are 'footprints of teens on the internet'?

    I too had testicular cancer stage 3C. Would have been dead if I'd have reached doctor about a week later. Had 4 chemo cycles accompanied with 6 surgeries, 3 major including orchiectomy, RPLND, hernia where I had RPLND and 3 minor surgeries.
    All I can say is I learnt alot in that time and due to my optimistic and happy go lucky attitude I recovered much faster than anyone else but I wish noone else has to go through it.

    I hope you have recovered completely now and good to go blackhat granny:D. Its good to have you here. Well I wish you all the best for your journey in IM.

    Sorry that you have been through this, but I'm sure it's made you a very, very strong person. In the end, we are all just the sum of our life experiences...I have no doubt you will be successful.

    Since you are a survivor and can write well, a personal blog directed at families dealing with the financial tragedy of cancer might be a lucrative niche. I haven't done keyword research or look looked at potential competitors, but if you can find something that works for you, you can easily transition into coaching or mentoring for those families dealing with cancer.

    Id start off with general tips, advice and encouragement so your readers find value in your blog and the you can upsell your mentoring and recommend systems that have worked for you. Personally, I would not promote junk to cancer families, as I imagine they would he hesitant to spend willy nilly on the latest jv zoo products or wso offers. Not saying it's all junk but if I were struggling this way, I'd want proof and a very clear action plan before I invested.

    Anyway, good luck! There's tons of great info and resources here. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need help!

    Thank you! I'm really happy that you have recovered and are Rockin' it! :)

    Yes, I agree... I have already learned that there are MANY 'teachers' out there that ask for your money, then deliver very little. I wouldn't bother starting any business if I couldn't offer something that would glean tangible results.

    Thanks! I appreciate how welcoming you all are... it is very heartening. Believe it or not, though, there is a level at which I am very grateful to cancer... it changed me, and I (though, I've always been a kind person) am a much better person for it. :)

    Are you intimating that you think I'm a teenager? lol If so, I am intimating here that I think you are a troll. ;-) XXOO Love YOU!

    What matters is you're here and cancer isn't. Can't wait to see your first Journey thread.

    I think you meant "insinuating"?

    Hello Lynn, nice to have you here. I’m impressed by your writing skills and your strong will. You really should start a blog.

    And I must add that the US health system is a shame. Here in Germany you don’t have to pay for your health- as if being sick was not hard enough.
    Anyways, good luck with your journey :) I’m sure you’ll find everything you need here in the forum

    Lol. NO. I was a physics professor, but I do have a fair handle on the English language. This is what your Merriam-Webster app is for!
