Hello everyone!!
I have traveled a bit in my lifetime. Started life in Uganda, Africa and then moved to India where I finished my high school. Immigrated to Canada and began studying Music and doing various jobs that paid for my studies. Running out of money, I began playing piano in Piano-Bars in Toronto, Canada.
Then had a chance to replace a friend who was going to Europe to work as a Pianist. My goal was to have at least ONE person leave every night with a smile knowing that he/she had forgotten the troubles of that day.
I really enjoyed the European experience of playing piano and entertaining the high class audiences in places like St. Moritz, (where I had Sting his wife Trudy and his family for 2 weeks beside the piano) Davos, and Gstaad in Switzerland. The piano bars on cruise ships and Scandinavian ferries was really fun. The city hotel bars were nice and it was enlightening to meet Business owners, Politicians and important people from around the world.
Unfortunately, music has changed and the younger generations are looking for music that they would like to hear, but almost impossible to reproduce on a piano without computer or play-back help. Many hotels have cut costs and eliminated the once renowned "Play it again Sam" piano player.
I had a full time job at a wonderful 200 seat restaurant in Winterthur, Switzerland where I worked 7 years, 5 days a week. But that ended with a new owner.
While employed in Winterthur, I got a Swiss Residence Permit and now live in Wettingen, Switzerland.

I found myself UN-employed and impossible to find work as a pianist for the coming 12 months as most places booked in advance. The Agencies had their favorite pianists and as I has worked independent and out of the agency system, I was not a preferred choice for upcoming jobs. Besides playing piano for 6-7hrs is no fun anymore as one worked without passion.
I then teamed up with Sandy Patton a renowned Jazz Vocalist living in Bern, Switzerland and Melanie Adami an Opera and Operetta singer. Work has been scarce as both singers have their own schedules with other Musicians and use me when needed.
A friend then hired me at his company packing parcels for shipment. This 3 day a week job gives me the steady income and the music jobs come from the contacts that I make doing my favorite HOBBY: Golfing.
I am a 9. 0 Handicapper and play golf as often as I can. I am in the process of starting a travel group with a Golf Pro from Australia, Andrew Gossage. together we plan to take golfers to Golf destinations just to improve the Short Game, the most important part of golf.
Playing with a few people I learned about Wealthy Affiliate and have now joined and will try to promote my music and golf Trips with Websites and hopefully make a little extra money from doing this.
I am looking forward to begin this new journey......

Hi AJ,
Nice to meet you and welcome to WA. Thank you for the follow and I return the favor. I wish you the best. You've had an exciting life.

I noticed your question below and no answer. I don't know the answer either, but put the question above where there's a star and it says "Hey (your name) search for help here..." choices will pop up and hopefully someone with greater knowledge then me will have an answer for you. Take care.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)
