I am so glad you are visiting my website. Let me introduce myself. I am Fran Kelso, an 81-year-old Alaskan woman who believes in self-reliance, and who has the courage to try something new.
Let me ask you right up front — Are you living in a remote location? If so, you have come to the right place. Read my story and you will see that with a decent computer and a good internet connection, you have the potential for earning from anywhere in the world.
Even if you live in a well-populated area, this business could be just what you have been looking for. Read on to find out how I got started.
A Bit About My Journey
Presently, I live in the very small town of Gustavus, Alaska, which is located at the head of Glacier Bay. In the summer many visitors come here to take a
boat up bay to see the glaciers. In the winter, there are maybe 400 people in the town.
From my house I see only trees, though bear and moose come into the yard very often — probably more often than people. I might as well live on an island, as the only way to get here is by boat or plane. Yet I am connected to the world through the internet.
As you might guess, at my age and because of where I live, a home-based internet business is the only way to go.
How I Ended Up In Alaska
For years, I worked in offices, starting right out of high school.. When office jobs started feeling like prison, I broke away. I became involved in a music group, playing 5-string banjo and bass. Eventually, our group came to Alaska to play. I was 30 at the time and have now been here over half my life.
In Kodiak, where we played, I met and eventually married Les Kelso. We started a jewelry and gift shop in Kodiak; then Les was offered a job in the nearby village of Ouzinkie, on Spruce Island.
When Les and I separated a few years later, I knew I wanted to stay in Ouzinkie. We had a homesite claim there, and with the help of friends, I built a house on it and lived there for 20 years.
I taught adults in the village and loved the job. Their success was my success. A group of village friends joined me to study the wild plants of the area, and we ended up compiling a book about what we’d learned. Plant Lore of an Alaskan Island was published by Alaska Northwest Publishing Company in 1985.
I began selling jewelry again, and finally moved back to Kodiak in 2000 and opened a gift shop in the Best Western Kodiak Inn. I also got involved in a network marketing company, Nikken, a company I still admire a great deal.
Then in 2011, I moved to Gustavus. Now I needed to find a way to supplement my income. That’s when I discovered affiliate marketing. It’s the perfect venue for a remote business. I work from home but have met people from all over the world. We’re all working toward the same goal — financial freedom.
