I'm Carson, co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate...nice to meet you and great to have you here within the community :)

In a few words I'll give you a little background about myself. I've got a Computer Science background, and that's where Kyle and I first crossed paths. I love to learn, and I love to teach. My father in public and private education and my mother taught youngsters her entire career. I followed suit by creating a community here at Wealthy Affiliate where we focus on teaching folks how to leverage the power of the web to create Internet businesses!

I got my first Computer in 1994, and since then technology has always sparked my interest. Kyle and I created Wealthy Affiliate to bridge the gap between education, social networking, and technology. We're a small tech company (in a sense) with big ideas!

You have come to Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Internet marketing and how to build an online business. Kyle and I have a combined 26 years experience with Internet marketing, starting out independently before joining forces in 2005 to create WealthyAffiliate.com.

You'll find me here in discussions, in Live Chat, and within my profile helping out in every way I can. It is my goal to help absolutely everyone who is serious about building an Internet business.

When I'm not plugged-in I'm travelling, spending time with my family, or shooting hoops!

You have made a great decision to be part of our community, and I look forward to getting to know and work with you!

I tried to upgrade to premium earlier and I was given a message that my credit card could not be accepted, I then tried it 3 more times, like a dumbass, then I checked my credit card and found that the premium payment had gone through 4 times, but I am still not upgraded, can you help me?

Carson,
So glad you are following me, somebody needs to - lol.
My son introduced me to WA, he signed up about 4 weeks ago and full of enthusiasm. A brief introduction, I'm UK based, 68 years old but act about 28. My engineering work has taken me all around the world and for 15 years or so I've worked for myself. Big ups and big downs especially with Covid 19 in the world which has stopped me getting out and about to customers. So, I'm starting again on a new adventure. No intention of stopping work, I love the cut and thrust of work. I'm often described as a pragmatic activist or in my words - I'll tell you the truth and get the job done.
So, let's get this journey under way. I have modest goals but I need to achieve them.
Looking forward to working with you.
Thanks for the interest you have shown and take care
Dave

Well, you are definitely in the right place to accomplish this. I know you are going to love your experience here at WA, everything you need to create, grow and manage your business online is here within WA.

Hi Carson. I haven't posted for a while due to some personal reasons. My payment hasn't gone through this month due to the same reasons. I was wondering if I could put my account on hold for a couple of months, just whils I get sorted. The UK has just gone into another lockdown so things are a little crazy here. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
Puneet

Hi Carson. I’m not used to any of this yet. I was actually looking for an mlm to join when your ad popped up. I only have my iPhone. No computer. I don’t understand any of this yet. I’m computer illiterate. I’m not sure how this all works. Cheers. Devina (from Australia).

You can use your phone, it definitely isn't ideal, but you can consume the training here. Building your business will be very difficult from a phone though and if you have a local library you might want to consider taking advantage of that for the actual "building out" of your website.

Hi Carson, I got stuck with my niche because I am really passionate about orthomolecular medicine, that is large doses of supplements preventing and treating various health problems, even helping with addictions. The problem is that I am not a doctor, I don't have any qualifications in this field and most of the sites are reviewed or written by qualified members, nutritionists, doctor etc. A possible niche would be " 7 best supplements to deal with alcohol" or " Why Vitamin C for colds," etc. Do you honestly believe I have any chances? What tips/ideas do you have? Thanks so much! Alina

Hey Alina,

No one starts out as an expert at something, so you can most definitely educate yourself in ANY niche and be in position to share helpful information with others through your website. Research is the key - you can do research, then share the information that you find on the site. You do not need to be a doctor, you can reference works, or websites in your content. I know that many people will be looking for information about ways to increase their immune systems with vitamins etc. However, you'll want to consider how you'll monetize the website once you start getting traffic. What kind of products or services could help your audience?

Here is a great blog post by Kyle that will help you better understand how to find a niche: Also, this post that explains the biggest 5 mistakes people make when choosing a niche. I think these will really help you!

Thanks Carson, I am thinking to promote different sites that sell vitamins, juicers for detox and in the long term some rehab centers. Do you think this could work?
