About DennisM
Joined August 2014
Does anyone out there get everything right the first time? That is definitely not me. I can't tell you how many times I have started over. It's because I have simply forgotten. But, today, I am starting over. Again!. I am okay with it and I wanted to take a moment to update my profile with this information. I have had so many attempts in Internet Marketing and Network Marketing I actually get mentally exhausted just thinking about it. But then I found Wealthy Affiliate.

There is something about this Wealthy Affiliate that is so attractive and different from any other training and hosting company out there. Right off the top, has to be the community. I am not alone and neither are you. This is what community is all about. I like that. The other thing is the training. It is easy, well thought out, organized, logical and actually gets you into traffic quickly. Usually in life we want to avoid traffic at all costs but in Affiliate Marking "Traffic is Key", right after "Relevant Content".

The other thing I have noticed and really like about Wealthy Affiliate is the overall ambiance of "Freshness and Positiveness". You just can't escape it and it is so helpful in doing this kind of work, because you need to be positive and fresh to be creative. So after dropping my Premium Membership for some months I am back and for me, I know this time, I will finish what I am starting.

Life has ways at getting you off course but I have put my life on rails now and I am locked in to the finish. As a final note thanks for all the follows, I will be following all of you back in the days ahead. Back to my training...
=============================================================
Below this line is Old..... Above this line is NEW!. I like NEW!. Starting Over!
=============================================================
Sometimes it is a good idea to read your own profile as things change so often in life. I was driving truck locally but then things happened and I found myself driving over the road for 5 or 6 months. I am trying to retire. Unfortunately I don't have a healthy bank account. Finally I am at home and putting more time into Wealthy Affiliate but I probably still have to earn income outside the home. My wife is a Private Investigator and wants me to do the same so I have my license but am not chomping at the bit to get into that field. It's not a glamorous career especially with winter approaching. Sitting in your car for hours at a time crunched down in the back seat waiting for the subject of your surveillance to make a move. Boring!. So I am hanging in there for now and putting time into my website here at WA. I have a lot to learn and pretty slow at that so it's coming together slowly. One thing I have come to realize is that Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be for getting a website up and running. Now back to work.

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! :)

DennisM Premium
Thanks Kyle. It's funny. I get bored easily so I have four website ideas. Fitness for old guys like me, wealthy affiliate, my Motor cycle and me, scenic and nature photography,online shopping with Amazon. My last time here I had "Generating Internet Wealth" and was promoting WA but I never got through the training. I have to decide which one I will focus on. Decisions...
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, focus on just one when starting out. You don't want to spread your resources too thin. As you move forward you can definitely diversify and scale out in different niches. You choose. Choose the direction you think you will find the most interesting when starting out.
Reply
DennisM Premium
Thanks for that Kyle. I agree. The easiest when it comes to content would be the fitness site as it is what I am personally attempting. To be fit as I age. I'll try to attract some young'uns...LOL
Reply
Kyle Premium
Cool, I would just narrow it down a little bit. 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. :)
Reply
DennisM Premium
Hey thanks Kyle. That actually helped me. "I want to help people that are struggling to get fit and lose weight". So I am not an expert in this matter but I am struggling so I want to talk about my journey and in doing so be an encourager or mentor to others that are in the same mindset as I.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that works!

Nobody starts off as an expert within any niche, nobody. Every expert you see out there started off somewhere and the online world and what you learn here is going to walk you through the process of becoming an expert.

Every expert surgeon started off at one point as a first year student. Every person with expertise within the online business world (myself included) started off with ZERO knowledge.

That should be exciting to you knowing that you can enter absolutely ANY niche you want and become the expert and build a full time income doing so.

Immerse yourself into your niche. People will trust you if you can offer them help and you don't have to reach the "expert" status to have a full time business within a niche.

Thanks, just upgraded my Jaxxy account and have secured 3 days local truck driving which will give me PPC money when I get to that point. Right now I will spend 4 full days every week plugging through the training and putting daily content into my site. I know quality content is King. Thanks for you input Kyle it is very much appreciated... Dennis

Awesome Dennis and yes, quality content is king. Don't try to race to the finish line, this is a journey and as you move forward and take action, you are going to start seeing results. :)

Hey Sean, Thanks for the welcome. You are looking right into my soul with that avatar of yours. I am not new just returning. I wasn't able to renew last year but I have part time work now 3 days a week so I can spend a full 4 days building my site until I can walk away. It is a long term project and I look forward to completing all the courses and learning. All the best to you today and going forward.

Thanks so much for the welcome Jo. I have been here before but had to get off for personal reasons. Now that I am back I am so looking forward to finishing the courses and actually making some headway. I plan to be involved in the community as much as I can. Before I came back I tried another hosting service. What a nightmare. Wealthy Affiliate has so much more value than any other hosting out there. All the best to you today and going forward.

You have the right attitude Dennis! :} When I fall off track, I fire myself and then re-hire myself. Sounds stupid but everyone of us gets off track but that's a part of the journey. Holidays can be a distraction as well. I guess I think about if I was working it seemed I always had to work on Black Friday, Christmas Eve Day, etc. I treat this like I was if I was working a regular job. Thanks for sharing, I'm sure everyone can relate. My best to a successful 2015! Kathy :}

Dennis, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Dennis.

Good day Kyle,
I guess it's obvious that I haven't been doing much with WA. But it is all about to change. I have been working 60 hour weeks driving a steel shunt truck at US Steel in Hamilton. Still every time I get paid something is usually broken that needs to be repaired. The time on the job left me with nothing to give to my passion. I am convinced that if I can focus and just get through the training my website will be in the money by then. So my income has dropped to just $711 net per month because I just walked away and will only be working Mondays. The monthly subscriptions to WA and Jaxxy are actually around $87 /month with the darn exchange rate. That is too much for me so I thought I should take my last full pay and go annual, at least on WA. Problem is with the exchange and taxes living in Ontario PayPal is wanting $510.37 all in. We should get a special deal considering we are all Canadians. Just wonderin! Irregardless, I am going to do it anyway. I just won't be able to tell my wife who constantly tells me to "work on the business Denny".

www.generatinginternetwealth.com..... a quick peek at my site to see if I am heading in the right direction generally would be appreciated. I will be making changes necessary as I proceed through the course. This week will be adding keywords and descriptions to content so far...

Welcome to WA Dennis!

It seems like most of us have very similar experiences with sifting through all of the garbage out there and then landing here.

You've made the right choice my friend as you will see over and over again through the months ahead.

What a great feeling it was the day I realized that this was the last stop for me. It felt like I had found my way home, and still does.

Be diligent, work hard and that $1'500.00 per month will soon be behind you.

Wishing you Much Success!

Thank you for the welcome Kyle. I am off to work a 12 hour shift at work so I do not have too much time at the end of a day to work at this. I wish I could download lessons on to my computer because when I am at work I have many breaks but looking at flash on my laptop or smartphone uses up my bandwidth so fast I end up getting huge bills for going over. I cannot afford that right now. I am looking forward to getting into all this. I have a big thirst for knowledge. Have a great day I have to hit the road. Well, not literally...
Reply
Kyle Premium
Use your time at work to do your research and writing, do your training at home. That is what I would recommend as you will be able to make best use of your time without digging into your bandwidth. :)

Hope you have an awesome weekend ahead Dennis!

DennisM Premium
Thanks Kyle great minds think alike. I was already writing on Empower Network blog but I read your blog and initially was a bit hassled but I agree with all the points made as things were not sitting easy with me. I want true training not being continually told I won't get anywhere without the latest greatest product. It seems whenever they have a meeting they turn it into a product. I am truly excited to have found you through researching EN through google. This is exactly what I have been looking for...
Reply
Kyle Premium
I am so glad you did find us Dennis and like you said, you are going to be able to create a real business here and it definitely is not about "buying the next product" which many of the schemes out there are.

You can create a successful business in absolutely any niche and I am here to help you out along the way. Let me know if you need a hand with anything going forward. ;)
