About Daypackjim
Joined January 2017
I'm a retired general building contractor planning to enjoy more world travel. I've been interested in building an online business for some time. It seems to be a great way to stay active and build a good retirement income while still being able to travel. I'm an outdoorsman at heart and enjoy most outdoor activities especially hiking in nature. I enjoy photography which will enhance my travel experiences and coming from a musical family play several instruments. I took a four year break during my building career and lived and traveled abroad at that time visiting over thirty countries. I'm very much looking forward to building my online business and meeting and working with new friends and associates.

Great bio. I don't know your intentions, but it seems you have great niches with hiking and/or travel knowledge. You can even do a 3rd niche with musical instruments tips/tricks. Good luck.

talk about bio's very impressive and I'm surprised with your IT and web building skills you haven't been successful in the past. Hopefully that will change with WA. I still feel the key for me to will be to give this method 100% effort. Esepcially with taking action as that is always the first listed as the reason people fail at im.
If I do as instructed, take action as instructed I'll expect results within 6 months. If not I'll re-analyze to be sure it isn't me before blaming the system. Before I started designing and building homes for rich folks I spent 5 years learning from the best. I was still nervous when I first struck out on my own, that's normal. I feel the same way here so I'm going in with the attitude I'm going to build at least 10 sites in the first six months and work them as instructed and go from there. One at a time until it turns a profit, no matter how small as long as it seems to be consistent, then rinse and repeat.
good luck

Sounds like you have a great plan. It is similar to mine. Learn from the mentors and see what happens. Sometimes I feel like knowledge is leaking out of my ears and I just don't know what to do with it. Military takes up most of my life, thus the hold back on what I can do on the outside. But, hopefully I will start turning a profit, even if a small one. Many stories I have read, people talk about how great it feels to make that first dollar online. I can definitely say, I can't wait for that feeling. I just want to see it work, then rinse and repeat, as you say.

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! :)

Kyle...thanks for the continuing support. I'm now into my 10th day since joining and feeling pretty good. I do have a couple of quick questions since moving my domain. In the first or second paragraph of the privacy policy it's offering my address if there are any questions. I have the email address there which I use for WA and website. Is it suppose to be followed by my domain name?
Not quite clear on that.....and secondly when my URL popped up it didn't look exactly like the one you demonstrated for your example.
At the end of mine it came out .com/privacy-policy-2. I believe your example ended with the word policy. Any reason mine finished with -2 that should concern me?

You can use any email you want there, that is completely up to you. If you have your own domain, you can create your own domain specific address for your site.

Here is some training on how to set this up:
