About Deanlilly1
Joined September 2017
Hello everyone and Thanks for stopping by. I am Dean and I was born and raised in the big and beautiful state of Texas. Lived and worked from Texas and the Southwest to California. I've been fortunate enough to be a self employed individual for more than 30 years doing a little bit of everything. I've worked in the Restaurant Business, Building & Construction, Entertainment Industry, Real Estate, Insurance and currently I am an Independent Adviser. I've done everything from hardcore Construction to Cooking at top Restaurants and always learned so much from so many. I don't jump around from position to position because of boredom or failing, it's just that sometimes that business or job has run it's course.
I enjoy life, meeting people and helping others, as I just finished a Pro Bono project over the last 3 years by helping Educator's in Texas understand their current pension plan and the easiest way to enhance their retirement position.
I have 2 Children off at College and that affords me more time for lots of other things. I am also a big believer in the Rescue of animals, especially Dogs. If you can grab a rescue from a shelter or foster home instead of buying from a pet store or a breeder, please do so. I am always looking for new adventures, challenges and people I can call clients, associates and friends. I wish everyone here the best so let's get busy and have some fun!

Hello, very nice to meet you. Thank you for the follow. Wishing you all the best with your WA'ing. Enjoyed reading your bio. I finally got two of my children out of college and into the workforce, only have one left at U of Iowa. We just bought a 21 unit cabin property in Eureka Springs, AR. You will have to come up and vacay at our property - check it out - tallpinesinn.com

Hey, my Daughter is in her 2nd Year at University of Arkansas, right down the street from there. One of my favorite places has always been Hot Springs, but I'll give Eureka Springs a shot.

Hi Dean! Welcome to WA!!
I am a dog lover as you can see! My SON as´I call him, BLUE a white Boxer has long passed away.
Before I got him, I looked at the local pound in Dade County!
I actually felt really bad and wanted to take a dog out of there, or ALL of them...but could not! Long story..
Thanks for the Follow and I will return that favor!
Like you I never worked for anybody, only with others!
Have a great time here on WA!!

Thanks Tom. I hope that my next rescue will be a Boxer, but you never know because if you're going to take a rescue, I prefer to consider an older dog or a dog with issues. I took a dog this year that is part blind and 100% deaf. Have a great week.

Hi Dean, and I would LOVE to take one more dog into my life, but here in the Philippines, the saying its a DOGS LIFE really is true. I can not even find a Boxer here. I am moving again...for the 23rd time I believe and then I will get another boxer..or he will find me...
Have a great week Dean!
Thanks for rescuing another soul !

Hi Dean, Another Texan. Phew you lot get around, real go getters.
Don't you find dogs taken from rescue sites have a problem with 'cringe' hard to break old habits.
Love that you are so talented, meet another "Jill of all Trades"
not mastered them all though.
Thank you for following me, I will follow you right back.

Hello Jae, no I usually take a rescue from a foster home and most have all their shots, trained and personally I look for a dog that is older or has problems like, deaf, blind, etc....simply because most don't want a dog that is older or has issues. Have a great week.

Well that is probably the kindest thing I've ever heard. Especially when humans give up their babies when they are born with disabilities.
Good on you Dean.

Hi Dean! IT's nice to meet you! I want to thank you for adding me to your network here at WA! I have added you to mine as well.

I have a rescue cat that is the boss of our family now. She is quite a character! I love dogs, too, but I have nowhere for a dog to run. My family lives in a townhouse with a very small yard.

If you ever have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you in the future!

Best of luck in all your endeavors!

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 think you will add a lot to the site Dean. you have a very impressive background and lots of your experiences will lend themselves well to this online marketing environment.

What I like about this business is you have a lot more freedom to build it just the way you envision it or want it to be. The sky is the limit, and there are low barriers to entry in many niches/segments...

Two kids in college! Wow, congrats on that, most certainly it changes things in the house (lots more free time)...Does not lessen the worry (that never changes), but certainly having the kids to that stage is comforting...

I look forward to hearing/reading more from you, and I know you will do very well...

Cheers!

Hello Dean,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)
Reply
deanlilly1 Premium
Let's see. I have done so many things over my last 40 years, so I feel like I have a few decent ideas on a Niche. I have a license in Insurance, Investment, Real Estate & a Business Degree so I think one Niche would be keeping your money safe or where to put your money to be safe, yet earn big $$$. Another one is Workout and Supplements for older Men 50+. Stuff like this. What do you think?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)
