About CatAdam
Joined October 2017
I have been retired for the last 17 years due to health issues, but previous to that I was the Executive Director of the Etobicoke Chamber of Commerce, the Managing Partner of the Facility Management Group and prior to that, I had my own company, Adam Enterprises. As the Executive Director, I ran the Chamber of Commerce, reporting to the Board, providing administration, finances, meeting planning and membership services.
The Facility Management Group was a consulting firm offering outsourced facility management services such as project and relocation management, needs analysis, strategic planning and benchmarking. Involved from the inception of the company I was responsible for the day to day business operations, in addition to client projects. I have written business and marketing plans, brochures and reports. For clients, I have coordinated, prepared detailed schedules and documentation and managed phased office reconfigurations/relocations involving up to 1,500 employees in total. These projects involved supervising the team dealing with design, construction, electrical/mechanical, communication, furniture systems, building operations and relocation management. I have prepared financial models and analysis to support an in-depth study of long-term office facilities.
Adam Enterprises provided association management services for such professional associations as the International Facility Management Association, the Canadian office and the Toronto chapter, NACORE, the Ontario Association of Hospitality Accountants and others. I developed educational programs and provided meeting planning services for the Annual General Meeting of the International Association of Hospitality Accountants, for 1,500 attendees. I also provided various consulting services including accounting, public relations, computer training and course curriculum development for a number of clients including Laventhol and Horwath, Labatts Ontario Breweries, the Toronto Star and Exegetics.
I am very self-motivated and used to working from home with no supervision. I have an in-depth familiarity with Canadian social culture and media and web culture.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

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! :)

I'm going to try out the proofreading/editing niche with a focus on book proofreading if I can.

I've also thought of another niche, open marriage. What do you think. of that idea?

Sue, anything can be a niche.

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. :)

Any tips on choosing a theme?. I'm not sure what I should be looking for in a theme. Just that it looks good or something more?

Hey Catherine,


Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You’re in the right place here.

Just follow the training to a ’T’ and do as you’re instructed to do.

And in no time your online business will be up and running.

Ask for help.

I see you're already using the Live Chat and started with the Getting Started Training. So good going with that.

You'd find that the community here is so awesome.

People are really friendly and supportive.

Reach out to me if you ever need a hand.

All the best and good luck.

Kevon
