This is awesome David - I love that we have a forum to stay connected!!
I would imagine most folks know me, but in case you don't: I'm Traci Knoppe and I live in Missouri with my hubby, 6 children, 6 dogs, 2 grandchildren, 2 cats (and a partridge in a pear tree). :p
We homeschool our children and I've been a home business entrepreneur since the late 1990's, spent most of those years as a web designer specializing in ecommerce design & setup. I have changed business models slightly and now operate an American outsourcing company where I provide technical type help for business owners including blog installs, squeeze page design & setup, autoresponder assistance, content writing, custom web design, ecommerce setups and more all priced to compete with offshore outsourcers.
I also am an affiliate marketer and have my own products I have created and sell. In addition to that I'm an offline consultant and coach and do public speaking and training workshops on social media and blogging.
In my spare time I can be found lounging on the sofa eating bon-bons. :p

I'm still laughing about the bon-bons :D. Seriously, now you are getting into my territory!

I'm not sure who labeled you the "quiet one". When it comes to helping people and interacting, I wouldn't say that you're overly shy or quiet. I'm glad you're coming again and look forward to talking to you about your projects.

LOL Hey Dan. Lynn Terry's Elite group nicknamed me that because during webinars, everyone would be too shy to grab the mic.... except me. So they were being facetious when they gave me that nickname and they have assured me it's a loving term of endearment. :P
Although, through my entire childhood and my early adult years - I truly was very shy. Looks like I got waaaaay over that. LOL
See YOU at NAMS!

Really looking forward to meeting you at NAMS!

Traci...can't wait to see you again at NAMS! As for being the "quiet one" I just about choked on my tea when I read that ;)
I still can't get over how you can run such a fine business living with hubby, 6 children, 6 dogs, 2 grandchildren, 2 cats (and a partridge in a pear tree ;) You are truly an inspiration to us all :)
See you soon!

Hey Tawnya - can't wait to see you again too!!
01-09-2010, 02:58 PM
Yes...looking forward to it Traci. I found the first NAMS I attended it was hard enough just to remember names and put faces to the names. This time around I hope to get to know the people I met last time at a deeper level :)
01-09-2010, 03:00 PM
I agree - it's hard when you meet so many new people at once. Not everyone looks the same as their avatars. So the name tags are a big help. LOL
01-09-2010, 03:19 PM
I can't believe you were ever "shy" - it's great getting to know you on Lynn's Elite Forum and Brainstorming Hour - and you certainly do provide a lot of support to a lot of people.
Can't wait to meet you at NAMS!

So, my wife and I were just talking about how hard it is to keep track of everyone when I clicked on this thread.
I'm really good with names - putting those names to faces - not so much.
01-10-2010, 03:47 PM
Until I get to know folks better, have conversations with them, etc... it's hard for me to remember names. Thus why I love that NAMS has name tags. LOL

Hi Traci, can't wait to meet!
01-14-2010, 11:11 AM
Thank you Traci for the tweet about this forum.
01-14-2010, 11:26 AM
You're welcome Johnny - glad to have you here. :)

Hey Traci, Looking forward to seeing you again. Believe it or not, I was kinda nervous about going to NAMS 2. I didn't know anyone that was going and didn't know how the gurus (you included, because I had already gotten your Beginner Blogger) would be. I've been to other conferences, not internet marketing ones, and people that you talked with almost daily acted like they didn't know who you were. Even with name tages :(
Not so with NAMS, I felt very much a part of the group from the get go. Made a lot of friends and learned a lot.

Hi Traci. Hope to meet you...next week (wow how time has flown by!)!
