UPDATE: I will be on vacation from 5 July until 29 July so I have disabled all notifications on WA so that I won't have thousands in my email box when I return :) Please be patient and if you are new to following me or leave a comment, I will get to all the responses as soon as I can once I'm back! This is the time for me to have some relaxation with my family and be away from work so I'm hitting the disconnect button on a lot things. Happy July to all!!!

Six years ago I moved to the south of France with my husband and daughter. We actually have 4 children, but the older three remained in the USA. Only the "baby" (she isn't really anymore) of the family made the big move with us. I would like to think I am living the dream. Although, I have to admit there are days when it is a nightmare! I spend my days working for an international company and my weekends taking road trips to see as much of France as possible. I love history, traveling, hiking, photography and learning how to conjugate French verbs (just kidding about that last one). I'm really hoping to ditch the corporate world and become my own boss (the same as most people out there!)
AshleyFisher's Goals 3
Money Goals
Question #1: I would be happy with earning $50,000 per year.
Question #2: I would be ecstatic if I could earn $500,000 per year!
Question #3: I work a regular 8-5 job, but I usually have to put in more hours than that. Since I can't quit just yet, I would say giving 12 hours a week to this goal (for starters) would be doable. Some days I would be able to put in more time than other days.

Those are some amazing goals Ashley! If you start putting in the hours, you will definitely see results. It's going to take daily work to get there, but one step at a time! The path to that money starts with just $1, so it's time to get moving :)

I like your goals Ashley, have to start with high goals to give you more motivations.

Hi Jim,

I'm ready to jump into that training! I wish I had hours upon hours to do it. It gets so addictive that I don't want to stop. It will be a nice feeling when I have some more training under my belt. There is a ton of information that it's so easy to get overwhelmed. Study, study, study...
Thanks for the boost of confidence!

Great info on your blog. It's tough sometimes to keep going, especially when you feel that you've reach a bit of a plateau. We gotta keep on truckin' :) I think I just dated myself with that phrase!

Great job on your websites! It looks like you keep yourself really busy with both the golf site and the sleep apnea site. I'm excited to get started, but also a little overwhelmed. Just like anything worth doing, it just takes time to get my ducks in a row and make a clear and well though out plan. Thanks for the vote of confidence! BTW- I linked onto your Twitter account and followed you there :)

Thanks very much for taking the time to look at my sites Ashley! I found that when I first went through the training I would skip a lesson and move on to another one and then go back and forth and that's when I got overwhelmed. I found that going through each lesson, then trying to apply it to my website, even jot down notes, really helped me. I often went back to look at different lessons as well.

The lessons that I was really grateful for, was the social media stuff. I didn't even have a facebook account before I joined WA. Thanks for following me on Twitter, I will do the same when I logon there later today.

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

Regards,
Shawn

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 Nathaniell,

I am definitely running into the "find my niche" problem. I live in France and I like to travel both in France and Europe, I like hiking (though I'm not very knowledgeable about that- maybe a later niche website), I like Chateau and Cathedral hopping, basically all the things that come with being an American in Provence (and there are tons of us). I have just written my first children's book that is set in Provence and the illustrations are being done and I have T-shirt designs about France in the works for a later business. I would like to be able to tie the two into my niche. I would like to stick with something that has to do with Provence or France in general because I love being here so much, but there are so many websites already dedicated to that market. It seems everyone else likes the same thing I do. I've looked on Amazon to browse their departments, I've also been on DMOZ. org, I've google trend and QSR'd France/Provence related items and it comes up each time that there is already an overwhelming market for that area. I just know that I talk about France/Provence all the time (my friends hate me for it), I have a twitter account and an instagram that is solely dedicated being here and traveling around. I did have a website about my experiences in France and moving here, but due to my daughter's health, I stopped writing for it in 2012. I'm not sure if I should just try to get that going again and use that as my platform. The only issue is that it's not focused on one thing, it's about moving here, immigration, buying our house, traveling. It's all over the place and there are so many other people doing that, too. I'm just lost on what my niche should be, staying true to what I love. If you have any thoughts or questions for me to ponder on that would help me decide, and that I haven't already asked myself, I would be grateful. Thanks in advance. Ashley

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

I think French Cathedrals is a very cool niche idea. You don't have to take on "all of France". Just the Cathedrals and chateaus.

As for competition, you should never worry about competition, because if there is competition, it means that people are making money there. Also, you should understand that you are starting out as a beginner right now, but with time and focus, you will become an expert in this niche. It may look like you can't compete with the "professionals" right now, but you will be able to...that's what the WA training will teach you.

Building a business has to start from a beginning point. Your site may look a bit boring in the beginning, and it may seem like a tough task ahead to join a competitive market, but there's always room in any industry for passionate, knowledgable, and engaging business owners.

Hello Nathaniell (cool and unique spelling),

Thank you for sending me my first "inmail". I sincerely appreciate it. I'm just getting started with being overwhelmed :) by watching all the videos and setting up my profile page and trying to figure out where my niche lies. That last one is going to be the hardest, by far.

I will be sure to contact you for support. Thanks for the offer because I'm going to need it!

Well, I'm off to complete my next tasks for the day. Let the adventure begin!

All the best,
Ashley
