3 Months in WA and Still No Niche!

Last Update: April 05, 2014

3 Months in W.A. and No Niche!....

That is until today......... and a very warm and special thank you to Ed Cronin and his wife "Nana".

For 3 months in WA I've pondered over my niche (and for many years prior to joining too). I asked questions in WA, got answers and offers of help straight away, and still I wasn't 100% certain about my passion.

Ed Cronin stepped in and offered me help via my first ever Google Hangout. Firstly, I learned a lot about Google Hangouts but I also learned a lot about my computer microphone settings and drivers, as I could hear Ed but unfortunately Ed could not hear me. Ed persevered for hours and helped me fix this issue. He then got back on line with me at about 1.30 a.m. USA time and started helping me with my niche – I did not expect him to do this - we started at 6.30 p.m. the evening before by the way.

Secondly, Ed helped me find my "calling" and decide 100% on my niche. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ed.

We talked about where I worked and what my hobbies and passions were. I don't think Ed believed I didn't have any hobbies or passions and we kept talking. Then I said "Ed - what I really and truly enjoy is helping people. If I find something that can genuinely help people, I can shout it out to the world".

Ed's reply is still going through my head "I believe Berny that you belong in Bootcamp".

I always thought, but now I am convinced, that I can help working Moms (Mums) and Dads get away from the "roller coaster" way of life and start making money on line, eventually freeing up quality time to spend with their family and having time for themselves too. You'll need to go through the hard times first though to build your business to enjoy the blessings you will get in return.

Ed – your dedication, tenacity and willingness to help is absolutely second to none. I could have talked to you for hours and hours. I had very special visitors dropping in who only pass this way once in a while, and Ed fully understood. It's a shame Nana went to bed because if she hadn't I would have "hit her up" for some Cajun recipes. There's always tomorrow Nana, I won't let you off the hook that easily! I reckon Ed might have had quite a few recipes anyway, but I'll save that for another time!

Well, off to make dinner, then off to Bootcamp I go, wish me luck.............. please. My passion is helping others and learning how to run your own business on line. (Hope I'm not preaching that to the converted).

Some of you may be asking "Why didn't you just start in Bootcamp in the beginning then?" That is because some WA'ers (albeit kindly) were telling me it is the wrong place to start due to the high level of competition. Unfortunately (or fortunately – who knows) it is my passion and............ I have been told this in courses before – it's too hard – well guess what? It's my passion and I know I can make it work! Kyle previously told me it can be done too... but I ignored this, thinking it was too hard, as I had been told this so many times before in my life. Sorry for not listening to you Kyle.

Ed helped me to realise this!

Again, my sincere thanks Ed. It was awesome talking with you! I have a favourite saying in life and that is "your blood's worth bottling" and yours is. Just like Penfolds Grange – Ed – you will know what I am talking about.

Ed, as Nana was an English teacher and helps you with your business - maybe she can point out any errors in my blog so I can improve on my skills in the future. I also may call on Nana to write some articles when time starvation hits my life, in particular as she offers this service and is part of WA alongside you.

Well there goes – my first ever blog post – written just minutes after chatting with you - Ed Cronin. I told you I could take off on the right foot when I realized my passion.

I can only go upwards from here...........

It took me 30 minutes to type this blog post, if I can do it – anyone can!

Cheers

Berny

Truly awesome and inspiring! I am the exact way in many respects. I didn't have a clue as to which direction I should take with my first site and was told repeatedly that the make money online niche would be far too saturated making it near impossible for a complete newbie to have any success with it, but it finally dawned on me that as with anything in life if you have a will to succeed you absolutely can make it happen if you stick with it and find your way. I think for me the trick will be to find a unique angle and approach it with my own twist which will allow me to stand out from the crowd. The same will be true for you as well my friend, so hang in there, keep your hand to the plow and I'm sure we will both do quite well! Here's to the journey Berny!! Blessings.. Tim from Alaska

I agree Tim and thanks for your kind and encouraging words. Kudos to you too for sticking with your true passion. I know it will be difficult because we cannot say we have made money from our niche until we have, otherwise we are not telling the truth. My aim is to build my site promoting WA for a while, then keep it up and running whilst choosing another niche where I may make money first. Who knows? Alaska hey? We here in South Australia are just coming into Winter, "really" says Tim from Alaska! Bet its getting cold - not! My husband and son say I should move to Alaska because I prefer Winter here to 45 degrees celcius stinking hot heat. Do you think I would find Alaska a little too cold maybe Tim? Maybe my laptop would "freeze up" for want of a better term, rather than go into thermal shutdown because of our summer heat! Plus how would I keep my red wine at room temperature? Great conversing with you Tim!

Cheers
Berny

Very inspirational story you have shared in your blog with us, Berny. Some of us, (myself included) struggle where others soar with coming up with their niche's, domain name's, etc., etc. etc. and when we have a breakthrough with the help of fellow WA'er it is quite awesome. Anyway this provides hope to the rest of us who struggle with these sticking points. Thanks for the blog and best wishes, Jack

Hey there Berny, I am so happy for you and that is a wonderful story. Ed sounds like a real honest to goodness trooper. May there be more. BTW I have just realized that I am not following you particularly a fellow Crow Eater from the Land of OZ so I shall immediately put that to rights. Yes I reckon maybe it was worth waiting three months to find your niche. Judging by your rank number you will do very well. Go for it Gal, all the best.

You are fortunate to have a bottle of Coach Sgt. Detective Ed's blood. I have one sitting on my desk as we speak. He's helped me I don't know how many times when a lot of other veteran WArrioers ignored my pleas and questions. He is above and beyond the pedigree of givers in this Internet biz.

Another shout out to Coach Sgt. Detective Ed Cronin.

We spent three hours on the phone deciphering some information, which would be otherwise simple fodder to others, today as well as passed the breeze over coffee and eventually a cocktail. He lives in Louisiana (as you know), me in Montana.

He will be rewarded 100 fold I'm positive. Thank you for sharing Berny. I octubly ditto your words of praise. Cheers Mate.

That's great that you found your path. Everyone starts at WA with different life experiences. Some of us might think it is too hard to start off in the make money niche, because we don't have enough experience to write about it yet. Others might do well at it if they can figure out what to write about. Good luck to you.
