About ACWMS
Joined April 2018
Hi my name is Tony! I have two adult children, two grandchildren and one on the way. I like hanging out with my family, surfing, weight training, playing basketball, snow boarding, working on cars, and playing classical guitar. I am currently working the career of my childhood dreams, however, my career has only become a JOB!

I estimate that I will retire in about 5-6 years, and would like to create a second stream of income before retirement in order to reduce my current work hours. Having fewer work hours means more time to spend with family, and more time for hobbies. I realize that starting my own online business will require me to work more hours in the beginning, but I believe the benefits will eventually outweigh the sacrifices.

I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to have my own business since my teen years. I have visited the Wealthy Affiliate website for several years now, but never made a commitment to join. I have now decided to be a doer, and no longer a watcher!!!

Thank you Tony for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Congratulations on going premium Tony!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

Alex

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! :)

Hi Kyle, I have a lot of interest and hobbies, but I did not imagine it would take me this long to come up with a niche. I've been reading a lot on niches and trying some of your methods as indicated by your video. I continue to tell myself to stay focused.

You can have as many websites as you want as time goes on, it is likely that your first website will not be your last but do know that it only takes ONE website/niche to be very successful online.

I actually posted about this a few months back and I think you will find this thread very interesting and informative: Hope this helps you out here. :)

Hey Anthony! I just wanted to touch base with you and see how you're doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set up your account yet, so I wanted to help you out in case you needed any. There's a video on how to do this if there's any confusion. Setting up your account always leads to much more engagement and better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better seeing your image and description.

Hey Anthony! How are you doing? I like checking in to see that you have your account all set up and yours is perfect. You're right on track.

As you know, you qualify to get a full month of premium for only $19. I always recommend my referrals take full advantage of this deal. You'll have 100% access to all of the great training and tools here and that's really hard to pass up for that price.

Here's a quick video overview I put together for you so you can see the course lessons you graduate to when you unlock the rest of the training here at WA: Also, I want to throw in a special bonus.

A lot of times choosing a niche is something new members go back and forth with. Watching an expert in the field show you how he goes about choosing a profitable niche and sharing the critical first steps he takes towards building a successful niche site was a huge "a-ha" moment for me, so I want to add this case study training to your premium discount.

This 4 part case study alone has over 4 hours of expert training and is well worth the $19 all by itself. We get these live video classes every week at WA, 52 for the year, with full access to all the replays as well. That's well over 300+ hours of training. I've learned a TON from the live classes and would not be where I am without them. It's an absolute steal that we have these at WA! The full case study can be found here with full descriptions of what each part teaches: I hope you'll take full advantage of this opportunity. I went premium on day 2 of my starter account and never looked back. The live video classes along with all the great training in Courses 2-5 make it so worth it and you get a ton of value and bang for your buck :) I'll continue to check in with you and as you know, I'm always available to you when you need anything at all.
