How I Turned My Life Around After Losing Everything

Updated on June 29, 2014

I Lost It All

I have been asked how I managed to turn my life around after suffering from the most horrific divorce in California. I was married to a wealthy Dentist who had connections. His brother is a Judge, and another one of his brothers is a lawyer. They raked my over the coals together, and I left a very rich guy to move in with my mother and struggle to pay off debts.

Fortunately, I have survived and I am making a very handsome living from my online work.

The first thing I did was I gained friends in the marriage counseling and relationship psychology field, so that I could learn as much as possible about men and what I have been through. I started guest blogging at,Entrepreneur Lady. Where women have come to me for advice, and I began writing here at Hubpages and WebAnsers. Now, Without even getting a job, I am earning my income.

You can do the exact same thing. Here I will explain exactly what worked for me, and avoid telling you about the things that did not work out. It takes energy, drive and determination, but it really can work. Thank you God!

Please start a new email right now,because you will need a business email where your business won't get mixed into your personal emails.

Also, please have a pad of paper or tablet, because I am going to ask you to join some sites, and you will want to write down your password and username, and have a good place to keep track of things.


1) There are blogs out there that are making thousands every month. It is a matter of going to Google's Blogger and starting a blog on an issue that you are very passionate about or knowledgeable of. If you are diligent and post information every day, you will see increasing traffic. After you get that surge in traffic, promote your blog on your facebook profile, or create a facebook fan page and dedicate it to your blog. A good way to start monetizing your blog is to join Kontera, AdSense, or Chikita, and allow those sites to place ads on your blog.

2) Now that your blog us set up, you should join this site by clicking hubzz. The way this works is, there are a lot of hubbers here who will see your articles right away and the traffic they create right away will give your hubpage a better rank in Google searches. Now you can link your blog to the articles you wright here. It works like a charm.

3)Join WebAnswers. While you are waiting for your hubpages and blogs to mature into dollars, WebAnswers will pay out quickly. Its easy too. All you do is ask and answer questions. To join StartHere.


4) After you have written for hubpages and are receiving a decent monthly income from that site with some help from your blog. Its time to get serious. Write an eBook. Just use your work processor and make sure your book is at least 20 pages and no more than 200 pages. Publishing your first eBook is a learning experience, and your style will improve over time. Here is a list of places to publish your eBook.

      There are actually about 7 or 8 states which don't allow you to make money from HubPages. I live in Arkansas but I really am not sure what the others are.

      What? What state is that? Oh that is terrible.

      The only other writing site I have made anything on was Yahoo Contributor. I did not get as much in royalties, but they kind of made up for it by giving upfront payment.

      In my state HubPages doesn't pay you A DIME. Which sucks for an aspiring writer. *angry face*
