It Finally Clicked!
I joined WA several months ago when I was laid off from my job due to downsizing. I knew I wasn't going to make money overnight and that I would have to put in the effort to see the results. Well, months went by and nothing was happening. It wasn't anyone's fault but my own. I wasn't consistently following the online entrepreneur certification training. I really couldn't come up with a niche that I was passionate about.
Now that's pretty laughable considering there are millions upon millions of things to write about! I went over to the Bootcamp training and started that, but fell short when all the reviews I read about it said you really shouldn't START there.
I decided to watch some of Jay's live training. That seemed to resonate very well with me. I found a niche. I researched it. I thought of a catchy name. I got a logo. I found products that I could put that logo on (keychains, mousepads, mugs, etc.), but I couldn't actually find anything to write about!
I went back to the online entrepreneur certification training. My head started to fill with static. Everything went fuzzy. There was a disconnect. I went back to my niche. I did some more research.
I was using an acronym as the title of my blog (business) so when you searched it the results had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with what I was trying to promote. I started to get very discouraged. I needed to look at this from a different point of view. I went on Fiverr and hired someone to write a blog post for me with the intention of elaborating on whatever the person wrote. I just needed inspiration... A little pick-me-up. I got the post. It was well written. It was exactly what I asked for... But I did not use it. I only paid $5 for it - her gain, my loss.
Then I remembered that early on in the online entrepreneur certification training Kyle said that you could watch all the training you want until you are blue in the face but until you implement it nothing will happen. True, yes, but how was I going to move forward with my niche if I was no longer passionate about it?
I was recently watching one of Jay's trainings and he said choose 5 niche ideas /opportunities. Ideas are random thoughts that pop into your head. Opportunities are ideas that are researched. Not all ideas turn into opportunities. So, that's what I did... I took my original niche, opened Jaaxy, searched the term and looked at the related column to the right.
The tools were there all along. If I had followed through on my training, I would have been further along on my journey. What do you think I did next? I went back to the online entrepreneur certification training and I plugged along for next 6 hours.
I made it to level 4. I used Jaaxy to determine the the popularity of my niche. It was Great! I picked a new name. I bought a.com. I shifted my perspective from a business product to a health product and my niche exploded!
Jay once said that if you found a niche you were passionate about you would have content to write about for years to come. How true that is! I started to create list after list of related topics to my niche, then I wrote this post!
If you take anything away from this post, shift your perspective, it might just rock your world!
