About CarolEll
Joined February 2016
I am a licensed psychologist with over 35 years of experience in the public and private sectors. I've worked in most community settings, including my own practice, with infants to seniors, providing both behavioral health and mental health services. I've had a varied, creative and fulfilling career, but It's time for it to end.

My background includes a successful 27-year marriage, 6 years of sudden widowhood, and, now, a happy second marriage to a former widower. We each have one daughter and son-in-law, and 5 shared grandchildren.

My profession has allowed me to be employed and then self-employed. Hands down, self-employment Is much more rewarding than working for someone else.

I'm considering lots of ideas, mostly having to do with seniors. We elders are living longer than ever, with options that our parents and grandparents could not imagine. So, why not tap into the possibilities, senior to senior?

I'll keep you posted along the way!

Regards,
Carol

Welcome, Carol - You have some great ideas regarding niches and websites. Since I am only 67 I will hold off on becoming a senior citizen until I am 100.........do you think that will work?

Glad to have you on board my friend!

Thanks for your response and compliment. Your site looks down-to-earth; a rather refreshing change within the wellness community! I struggle with weight, too... but as long as I'm eating well, and exercising regularly (prefer swimming), I figure that it is what it is; I'm too old (64) to worry excessively about my looks... Anyway, best to you on our shared adventure!

Thank you for taking a peek at my website and I am glad you found it a welcome change, that made my day! I am a bit overwhelmed with the monetizing aspect and seem to have hit a barrier with links and hyperlinks and such, but will persevere. I enjoy swimming too and will incorporate more about that into my site. Wishing you only the best on our shared adventure :-)

I would be very interested in you goals as at 75 I have been thinking about the same type of projects especially with people not wanting to talk anymore and it makes it harder for many of the seniors to know who to talk to and who will talk. We could have fun with this from the stand point of bouncing ideas off of each other if that would interest you as well. In any case I sense you are going to do well. I just joined last week.

I'm 64 and my husband is 71. I'm in the process of closing my office, but I'm going to hold on to some contracts. My goals are to learn how to build websites and blogs, and then to make enough money to continue traveling whenever and wherever I want, so that I don't have to take anything out of savings. Feel free to bounce ideas off me anytime you want!

Hello Carol ... thank you for the follow. Not sure if Baby-Boomers are still the leading demographic. I think I read somewhere that Millennials have passed us up, but Boomers are still a significant group. With your back ground and experience you should have fun with that one.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Actually, where IS the line between seniors and boomers? I live in Perth, Western Australia. Is that anywhere near you? I couldn't see in your profile where you are from, but maybe I had better re-read it.

I'm around the world from you. I'm in Michigan, the state that is surrounded by water and looks like a mitten. Boomers span from 1946 to 1964. Seniors were born before 1946. I was born in 1951.

Your background as a psychologist most come in very helpful in dealing with people of various ages.

Best to you at WA, too! Carol

Hi carol, okay so I am just in college... Does this website premium package really provide all the tools and information needed to be successful? Can you provide me any advice or your experience/reviews of this website?
Reply
CarolEll Premium
I think so. It's like taking an ungraded independent study course with no deadline, and with unlimited opportunities to learn more. Your classmates are all supportive, you can get 24/7 help, and your professors, who run the program, have unlimited office hours. All for $359 if you buy a yearly membership. Can you think of any other class that would give you so much for that price? Making money is secondary for me at the moment; right now, I'm in it to learn. However, that will change after I've learned enough to feel competent. I expect the income to trickle in for awhile; making money is not going to be a quick process. But I'm patient and committed, and the skills will stay with me. I can find nothing to criticize. For real! My blogs are describing my experience. Let me know if you want more info. Best to you, Carol
Reply
mrm0067aubu Premium
Are you able to Atleast make more than you pay for this premium program at this point? If so how long did that take?
Reply
CarolEll Premium
No. I'm still focused on customizing my website. I don't anticipate making any money for a few months, and I'm guessing that it will take most of the year, if not longer, to recoup my investment. This is a long-term foray. Success in self-employment doesn't come quickly; you have to allow time for your product to find an audience, and then more time for the audience to grow. Neither Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, nor Mark Zuckerberg became successful immediately; they all spent years on developing and refining their products before they made money for themselves and their investors. you will need to have patience in order to make money here.
Reply
mrm0067aubu Premium
I am prepared to work hard for as long as a year before income starts, but I have no other commitments besides school... How much time would you say you put towards your website daily?
Reply
CarolEll Premium
I work part-time during the day and then devote several hours to WA when I'm not working. I probably spend 2 hours a day actually working on my website, and the rest of the time writing blogs, reading and learning, or helping/supporting other WA affiliates.. Website construction is very difficult for me, and so I have to take a lot of breaks from it during the day. I'm guessing that you'll be able to have your website up and your business running before me if you put in the time. For what it's worth, I have a PhD in developmental psychology and built a successful business from it. Other people earned their PhDs quicker than me, but I also worked part-time and raised a family. It's all about priorities, goals and allocation of time. I suspect that you can succeed! Carol

Hi Shawn - your website is terrific! I love the title! I've worn a CPAP for 10 years. You cover it all. I'm going to launch my website for active seniors soon. Along the way, I'd like to reference your site, which I have bookmarked.

Hi Carol,
Thanks very much for the kind words, I appreciate it! It's a niche that's near and dear to my heart. My dad had sleep apnea and I know quite a few other family members and friends that have it. I would appreciate it very much if you referenced my site. I hope it can provide useful information to others. Have a great day!
Regards,
Shawn

I have figured out my niche, and it will dovetail nicely with yours (adaptive gear and resources for seniors). We'll talk further as it develops. Warning: it may take a while to put it together. I'm a total newbie, technically challenged, and painstakingly conscientious on composition, content and appearance. Carol

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

CarolEll Premium
Actually, I do have a question. Debating between the.niches healthy seniors and healthy retirees. Thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would go the direction of healthy seniors, but what aspect of their health. Health is very broad and it encapsulates just about everything. I would recommend getting a little more specific.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

CarolEll Premium
My target audience is seniors who want to live vibrant lives, regardless of their physical condition. It's about staying active, focused , positive. It looks like I'm moving towards establishing a web presence that will extend what I've done professionally for much of my career. I already envision several subniches in the site, and might even consider a live personal coaching function along the way. How does this sound?
Reply
Kyle Premium
It's a bit broad, but I do like the concept and I think you can make it work. Seniors are looking to be vibrant in their older years and there are lots of things you can help them out with.

Thanks! I'll start playing with titles. -vibrant seniors,, senior to senior, senior sunrise, etc.... Just brainstorming...

Welcome to WA, Carol, and thank you for the follow. I followed you back, as you can see. I think there are any number of niches that you can choose to address senior issues, especially coming form your field of expertise. As you can see on my profile page, I chose baby Boomers, myself (last website on my list. It's the one I started here. It's a young site with lots of room to grow.
Here's wishing us both a lot of luck and success, or as they say in the old country... Health, Wealth and Happiness, Too!

From the start I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Carol,

I see that you got your account set up here at WA. Congrats!

I really believe the key to this business is designating a set amount of time to your education. If you consistently work on the Getting Started course, you'll build your website and online business at the same time.

I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button up on the left.

And don't be afraid to reach out to me or the community with questions when you need help. I think you'll find the WA community to be very supportive. You can always find tutorials and discussion using the top search browser here at WA as well.

Lastly, I would also strongly encourage you to follow the Top 100 Friends here at WA and to take a look at their Blogs, Training's & Websites located under their profile pictures here at WA. This will help give you some ideas as well.

Best of luck and keep working towards your goals.

Thanks, Todd. I just went Premium. We're on vacation, so our days are pretty full. Nevertheless, I've been thinking more about a site for seniors. I can already envision a few subniches having to do with retirement, post-retirement, traveling tips, considerations and places for relocation, snowbirding, health issues, healthy lives, support devices (as you had mentioned)..... So, for now, I'm letting it allbrainstorm and gel mentally, even though I'm not doing a lot with the site. I definitely see the value and potential ahead.

Thanks for checking in.

Hi Carol,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. My name is Todd and I referred you here to Wealthy Affiliate through my website Learn To Grow Wealth Online.

I hope you really enjoy your week here at WA. There is a ton of info & training here, so absorb it like a sponge.

I personally started by taking the classes one day at a time and then simply took action on what I learned and I couldn't be happier with my online business.

I Make Money While I Sleep, Isn't That Cool

That being said, before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions and interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their financial goals.

- Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach at WA.. I would also strongly encourage you to follow the Top 100 Friends here at WA and to take a look at their Blogs, Training's & Websites located under their profile pictures here at WA.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link.. .

This is the first course on the Wealthy Affiliate Entrepreneur Program, and the best next step you can take. This is where I started my online business and I think you'll be pleased with the results.

3) Don't be afraid to ask questions. WA is a super friendly community, especially to newbies, so there are no dumb questions here.

Remember that you can ask any question you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here..

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

You can also use the search bar above like Google search, just start typing in your question and you will find blogs/tutorials/classes/and Webinars that can answer your questions.

If you don't find the answer, you can always type the question below the search bar results and the WA community will help you out right away.

I'm following you now and here's my Wealthy Affiliate profile if you want to contact and/or follow me.
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/tmaltz

You have everything you need here at WA to create a successful online business, you just need to take advantage of the education, community support, and TAKE ACTION on what you learn.

I wish you the most success with your online business and goals.

Cheers
Todd

Thanks, Todd. I already have some questions about turning my 35 years of experience as a psychologist into a niche that doesn't conflict with my licensure. Before I ask them, I want to see if the website will provide its own answers. I also have a few hobbies, and I'm thinking of "niching" one of them instead. So much to learn!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Hi Carol,

You can always do both, but I would pick one and only work on that till you get it profitable. Pick something that you really enjoy and could see yourself writing about it and maybe other sub-niches within your niche.

I was starting my therapy niche site and as I was developing it, I found so many sub niches that I hadn't previously thought of.

Not only doing manual therapy to help people on a daily basis, but reviews (really campaigns) of products like power lift chairs, scooters, wheel chairs, walk in tubs. This type of niche really could be well developed over time.

Hopefully you see my point. Pick something fun, enjoy it. Work at it like you are back in college and enjoy the process. Keep enjoying your life/leisure.

That's my 2 cents, let us know if you ever need any helps.
Todd
Reply
CarolEll Premium
Good idea! I've been thinking about doing a site for seniors approaching retirement and later life. Reviewing products is a great idea for one piece of it. Are you doing that?
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Absolutely. As you get more into the training, you learn that you can reach out to your niche audience by supplying information they're looking for.

For example: Say our Niche is kite boarding and your audience is kite boarders.

Fellow kite boarders are going to want to know what are the best boards for quick action on the water, or what's the best value in a board or other related kite boarding apparel, etc.

So by being able to connect with your niche audience, you know what they're looking for. You do keyword research to answer questions that they're asking. And reviews is a big part of that. Also, other related keyword phrase searches.

Google: guide to making money online. You should see my post in position 3 currently. It's been there for about 8 months. Guess how many people are searching this phrase???

This is what I'm talking about. Stick to the training and it becomes quite clear.

Hope this helps,
Todd
