Bipolar Disabled Single Mom Seeks Help To Build Affiliate Marketing Business

by Jacqueline Walters
(Williamsburg, Ohio, USA)

Hello, I am a 46-year-old single female with two children living at home. One is 17 and the other 10.

My twin boys are all grown up, 21 years old and in the working world now. I am very proud of each of them.

My 17-year-old son graduates this year and will be attending Southern State College, which makes me so proud!

My youngest son will be in Middle School next year he has made A/B honor roll several times this and in previous years, quite a smart young man.

Disability Issues

I am on Disability due to bipolar disorder. The diagnosis came along in 1998 when I had a nervous breakdown.

My husband at the time was working and going to College at night. There were frequent times he stayed out late or didn't come home at all.

We had three very young children and my father-in-law who lived in the same neighborhood was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

My in-laws needed help. My parents needed help with yard work and transportation. The stress overwhelmed me and I ended up being diagnosed with bipolar disorder after over one month in the hospital.

I have learned to take care of myself so I can take care of my family. Medication and counseling have helped through the years tremendously.

Financial Hardship

Currently I am in a financial mess. Recently divorced and left with huge debt, I had used my credit card and charged quite a bit of money while my husband was laid off from work for over a year. He said he would help me pay it back.

The debt was $18,900. I am getting his 401K in the amount of $5,100, which will go toward this debt. Due to the struggle with the divorce and my ex-husband trying to use bipolar disorder against me. I now owe my lawyer almost $10,000.

Two years ago I was blessed to find a job as a verifier, which is a work-from-home job and fits our situation well.

With social security and my part-time job I barely manage to make my bills each month and have no idea how I will ever get all this debt paid down.

Income Efforts

I currently receive Social Security Income and have a part-time job, which brings in and extra $200 per week.

My family has helped with retainer fees, Guardian Ad Litem fees, psychological evaluation fees. They have really pulled through for me; however, I do not have the funds to help with this kind of debt.

I have been learning affiliate marketing over the past four years but still have yet to make any money at it. I'm not giving up until it works.

Specific Needs

My real goal would be to make this affiliate marketing business take off and pay all this debt back myself. Reality is I won't be able to do that unless someone can help me.

It seems it costs money to make money online and even the good training programs like Wealthy Affiliate or Affilorama have a monthly fee.

If I could get a grant or donation to help pay back some of this debt or to help with the affiliate marketing costs it would be a true blessing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also if someone might know exactly what to do for affiliate marketing to make it work fast and willing to donate some time to talk to me or be my mentor.

Business Idea

There are a few inventions I have come up with. Seems that too costs money to patent and process through a company who will market the invention. One would think they would pay you for a good invention.

I have consumed a load of information about affiliate marketing and I know that for it to work one needs websites, auto-responders, and hosting services which all cost money: building a list, e-mail marketing, pay per click, pay per view, etc. My goals are on hold right now but I am not giving up.

Pursuing your business idea

We have a sound approach for you to consider. It comes with a new page we added to the Ability Mission site to meet the demand for people with disabilities who want to start a viable work-from-home, online business.

We’ve researched this very carefully to come up with something that includes the ongoing support that is essential to making a go of it. Please check out this new page (sign up for the Free Guide and Strategic Mentoring also) and let me know if you would like to pursue this approach.
