About 19maw61
Joined December 2017
Hello, I am getting up there in age and have been seeking another way of earning an income.

I have been coned, scammed, deceived more than enough with the online schemes, I'm numb.

I work with individuals that have special needs and have been in this field since starting 19 years ago.

The work is rewarding, and frustrating, demanding and peaceful. The hardest aspect of the job is a very high risk of injury!

When I'm not working, I am fishing, (warm weather), riding a mountain bike, photography, and teaching my self the electric bass.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Hi Maws I am a newbie and still in the learning process.

Hi Bev,
I too am a newbie. As I started/listened to the videos, I realized other passions I had that seemed not important, but in reality, I believe they will help others.

My suggestion is to take your time and set the realistic goals. Don't be afraid of asking questions. When you do, other than the creators of this platform, there will be answers or guidance to your questions. I'm still getting use to a site where the members don't have a self serving motive of heart.

GOD bless you,
Michael

I am also a senior citizen (age 70), and have been involved with WA nearly 4 years now. Since I'm not retired yet, I work at it as best as possible between my jobs. I, too, work (part-time) with special needs individuals while maintaining my other part-time job as a teacher's assistant in special Ed. at a local elementary school.

Keep in touch, and keep on moving onward and upward.

Hi Allan,
Thank you Sir.
The special needs field is a demanding field at times.
I hope that if it is your desire to stay active and have more leisure time, concentrating on WA that it evolves quickly!

God bless,
Michael

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

19maw61 Premium
Hi Kyle,
Things to this point, seem to be pretty good. I don't feel as if I'm swimming alone! The community here is great!!

As I listened to the video, I found several ideas popped into my head which didn't relate to my hobbies, but seem interesting.
I am not tech savvy, but I decided to promote tech stuff just as a broad niche.

Looking forward to your input,

Michael

Kyle Premium
When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Nobody starts off as an expert within any niche, nobody. Every expert you see out there started off somewhere and the online world and what you learn here is going to walk you through the process of becoming an expert.

Every expert surgeon started off at one point as a first year student. Every person with expertise within the online business world (myself included) started off with ZERO knowledge.

That should be exciting to you knowing that you can enter absolutely ANY niche you want and become the expert and build a full time income doing so.

Immerse yourself into your niche. People will trust you if you can offer them help and you don't have to reach the "expert" status to have a full time business within a niche.

Thank you Veronica. There have been many so the skepticism has built up. WA seems to be totally different and non-slimy. I’ve. actually been thinking of a niche...difficult.!

It's definitely non-slimy, Michael. Perfect? Absolutely not! Bu this is the best non-perfect thing I have ever come across.

Glad to hear that you may have a niche selected.

Hi Michael,

Welcome to WA, sorry to hear the numbness you are experiencing in online ventures. I resonate with getting burned, have had my fair share of being scammed too. I have not spent as much time on WA as I would like to and in no means am I an expert to online business. What I have seen within the WA community is helpful and the content informative. I hope to see you succeed there are plenty of opportunities for you to embrace your success, you can do it!

Thanks Sanne.
