About Carl9
Joined July 2018
One of the main things I did when I was young and walked home from school was I would go by a greenhouse and they always had plants in a pile out there back door in a driveway. So I would pick up some of the plants and take them home and plant them in a flower garden I had.

Most of these plants would grow and look nice. My mother said I had a green thumb because most everything I grew or planted would grow. I know I had got a Rose bush from my Grandma and planted that right out front below a large window and that plant grew quit tall and large around. It was still growing after I left the house.

I Have been looking to get a website started for some time now. Will I do believe I may finally found what is going to work and that is Wealthy Affiliate.

I am a 69 year old person. I have been married for 45 years this year. Have had quit a rough going as have been in the service and wound up with having to have my knee replaced about 20 years ago due to the service as had to get down and do duck walks while having our rifles in back of our necks and holding them in place with our arms.

I have had several stents placed in my heart to open the blood vessels and they did not seem to work so had an open heart surgery two different times and had a total of 6 bypasses done. After my last bypass I wound up with an empiema not real sure that is spelled right. What that is is when your outer lung lining fills up with fluid. I almost didn't make it through that but am still here.

In the last year I had a hip replacement on the left side. I am doing alright now and working on my main interests. Which is plants starting them from seed to growing them and selling them. Growing Butterfly bushes and Humming bird vines. I have about 50 Butterfly Bushes started and growing that I started from seed that I got from a bush I planted 3 years ago. I have about 10 Humming Bird vines started 3 started from seeds I got from a sister-in-law and some runners I got from her to.

Will I think i have added quit a bit to my autobiography now so will close it out now.

Hi Carl, thanks for following me and leaving a note, I'm following you too and wish you all the best. I have what I call a semi-green thumb, that means I don't kill most things. I like to get the almost dead plants off the "sad rack" at Lowe's and they usually do pretty good. You mentioned recording rather than writing, I think you would do good with YouTube, just telling stories like in your bio, with helpful information like how you are starting the plants from seeds.
Carl9 Premium
Yes thank you very much for the follow back and the info. I am on an Affiliate Network site called Share A Sale and listening to some recorded video's and it is sounding quit promising.

Loved the Humming birds when I was in the States however did not know there was a humming bird vine
Carol from Aus.
Carl9 Premium
Yes it is also called the Trumpet Vine they look a lot alike. Best Wishes to you on here.
possumlane Premium
Ah, well next time I am in the States will have to look out for one. I was fascinated with the humming birds when I was staying with a friend in Tide River Oregon; even had humming birds on my cheque book
Carl9 Premium
Yes they are quit fascinating love to watch them fling around don't have one of the vines growing as yet as moved here about a year ago and am think of moving to Louisiana in the next three months as one of my daughters moved down there. So will have to continue this website down there. I am living in Reedsburg, WI right now in a two bedroom condo.
possumlane Premium
WI - wisconson? My brothers kids live in Minnesota and my youngest son lives in Colorado. Best stay away from the Mississippi when you get down to Louisiana. Remember standing on the other side at Natchez and wondering why all the levees were built up on the Louisiana side then found out that it gets flooded down there lol.
Am hoping to get a property in Fort Lauderdale next year as love it there but my heart also likes Bellingham Washington State so it will be interesting to see which one wins out
Carl9 Premium
Yes I guess it would be interesting which one will win out. Good luck on whichever it is. I have some relation that live over in Caledonia, Minnesota.

Hello, Carl, and thanks for your follow. We follow you back.
Thank you for your service. Our dads were WWII Vets (US Army and RAF). We love our Veterans!
Sorry about your knee and hip. Ours are getting pretty worn down, too.
But! With WA we don't need to worry about the physical.
You already have a great niche idea there with your plants and you are already in business.
With the training and tools here, plus the great community support, we know you will grow and thrive, just like your seeds!
Wishing you every success on the journey.

Thank you Carl 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.

I created a tutorial that provides you with a picture and then breaks it down into all of the various focused niches related to the picture. This helps you to find niches you may not have thought of.

When you have some time take a look at this entertaining tutorial. I give plenty of niche ideas and perhaps this will help you to come up with other niches I did not mention. Enjoy.
Carl9 Premium
Thank you Boomergp08 I do hope to get this going. good luck to you to.

Welcome to WA and congrats on going premium!

I'm pretty new here, I just joined last month actually. So far I have a website up and running, I also have began to post content. I’ve gotten positive feedback on both my writing style and my website.

This community has already helped me tremendously and I must say I've already learned a lot of valuable information here at WA. I believe you will too, that is if you haven’t already.

The future is yours! Wishing you much success.
