About DSweat1
Joined August 2017
I don't want this to come off like a haphazard Tinder app profile so I guess I'll divulge a little basic information about myself.

I've been working dead-end, unskilled jobs (according to some) up to this point and have been searching for a different, creative way to earn money. I stumbled across a link to Wealthy Affiliate and have decided to give it a try.

I enjoy mostly solitary activities and hobbies. I try to mess around on Photoshop, play video games on and off, write poetry, consider myself an armchair psychologist, an evolving audiophile, and might crack open a book or two if I'm in the mood to learn.

Also, I recently bought a cold-brew coffee maker which has been a godsend compared to paying for overpriced coffee at the local Starbucks or Dunkin.
Hopefully the caffeine will help fuel the motivation needed to get the hang of this internet business thing.

Anyways, enough about me I'm ready to learn as much as I can and am open to feedback and/or constructive criticism.

Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings. I look forward to hearing from all of you and interacting with other people trying to better themselves and their overall well-being.

Best of luck,
Dom

Hey Tim,

The thought did cross my mind, who knows maybe in the future I could start a second one for that niche...

We'll see how this one goes first, then hopefully expand!

Hi Dom,

I see you joined WA in August, I hope you are getting the hang of things by now and you are progressing nicely on the training :)

I am also an armchair psychologist (I have read tons of books and articles and people always come to me for advice or a free psychological report, lol) and I'm also an introvert who enjoys solitary activities and solo travel!

I wish you success in your online endeavors and looking forward to seeing you progress.

Hi Nicky,

I'm still learning day by day but I think I'm on the right track. :)

People usually don't trust my advice or input on psychology because I don't have any college degrees or "credentials" to back the info up but I definitely love learning about it!

Best of success to you as well,

Dom

I've heard cold pressed coffee is good but I haven't tried it yet. I rather brew my own cup than pay Starbucks or DD. I tried so many coffee shops in my area when I started drinking coffee a few years ago, i'd go to work jacked up on caffiene and jumping to expel the energy. I'm sure you will find your niche, it takes time. It's hard work here but worth it and may become an obsession. Best of luck, as you can see i'm a talker too lol.

Best,
Candice

Hi Candice,

I agree, especially when half the time the coffee's missing something you paid extra for or other issues. Customer service is tough, I've worked it for quite a few years, so I get it to a certain degree. :) Things happen.

I have started working on a niche site called Sonic Elevation, it's mainly focused on headphones, music, and other equipment for audiophiles. If you're interested on my progress so far there's a link under the My Posts section on my profile page.

Best of luck,
Dom

You sound pretty cool to me Dom...Nice to 'meet' you here!

The cold pressed coffee thing was a tidbit that was of particular interest, just last week I was in a place that was selling these and other propietary coffee brewing systems...

I definitely hear you on the taste...WOW (I am a coffee freak, drink at least 5-6 cups a day)...No Starbucks closeby my villa, just a Hortons...

Can't match some home brew with the right beans/roast!

In regards to online marketing/affiliate marketing...

Lots of help here as you move along with the training and setting up of your online business, and good folks who share willingly their experiences...

Cheers and best wishes!

Nice to "meet" you as well,

I've never been to a Hortons but just like food, home made is almost always better. :)

The feedback and helpful attitude of the community is actually pretty mind blowing and a huge part of the reason I've decided to stay here.

Thanks and best of luck,

Dom

Thank you Dominique for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Thank you,

I'll check out those tutorials, I've been using the keyword tool here since my free searches ran out on Jaaxy.

I appreciate the follow and pointers on keywords.

Here's to a successful future. :)

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! :)

Hey Kyle, right now I'm thinking along the lines of "headphones for audiophiles". Any thoughts?

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Dominique!

I want to personally welcome you to this terrific community, you're going to love it! My name is Stephan and you probably arrived here through my blog and I'm really glad you did! You made a wise decision because Wealthy Affiliate is the BEST place to learn how to build a sustainable business online.

Now, I know it's easy to get quickly overwhelmed by all the stuff you see around here but don't worry, we're going to take things one step at a time.

For starters, here's what I'd like you to do as soon as you can...

1.) COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE

Make sure to write a short bio and add a photo of yourself so that people know you're a "real" person. You'll get more replies and activity this way.

For directions on how to set up your account profile, watch this quick video: 2.) START THE CORE TRAINING

Click the green "Get Started Here" button on the left-hand side and work through each task-based lesson (take your time!) You can also click the link below to take you there: (Believe it or not, you'll already have your website up and running at the end of lesson 4!)

-----------------------------------------------------------

ENSURING YOUR SUCCESS

Do you want to know what it takes to be successful at this? Follow these suggestions and you'll prevail:

Work Consistently:

Commit to a set number of hours per week and stick to it (aim for at least 10-15 hours if you can). The more hours you put in per week, the quicker you'll see results.

Don't Give Up:

Be patient, push through hurdles and keep going! Give your website at least 6 months (if not a year) before assessing your situation.

Ask Questions:

You're a member of WA now so make good use of the warm and wonderful community here! You can always pose your questions inside the Classrooms or Live Chat.

For some inspiration, read about Kyle's first sale by clicking the link below: -----------------------------------------------------------

★ ★ ★ ACCESS YOUR BONUSES! ★ ★ ★

1.) SPECIAL PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP DISCOUNT

If you become a Premium member during your first 7 days, you'll get a whopping discount of 61% off your first month, which works out to be just $19!

Now, there's no pressure to upgrade, you'll always have access to the first level of training completely for free. But if you're serious about earning a living or supplementing your income, I'd recommend investing in WA for at least 1 month to take advantage of the big discount.

But you don't have to make a decision now. Take your time and see whether WA is a good fit for you first.

To see how the Starter membership differs from Premium, click the link below: 2.) PERSONAL 1-ON-1 MENTORING

If you upgrade to Premium membership during your first 7 days, I'll personally mentor you! Internet marketing gurus charge upwards 2K or more for this level of support but I'm offering it for free!

3.) 4-PART VIDEO CASE STUDY

Follow along and watch how a niche website gets built from beginning to end, leaving no stone unturned!

-----------------------------------------------------------

To claim your bonuses (upon upgrading to Premium membership within the first 7 days), send me a "private message" through my WA profile with the subject line: "New WA Premium Member — Bonus Requested" and I'll get in touch with you within 24-48 hours:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/szev

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have. You can either respond directly to this message or write on my profile page (see above for link).

Again, congratulations Dominique on taking this big first step and I'll touch base with you soon!

All the best, Stephan (SZev)

Thanks Stephan. I appreciate the quick response.

I found your link at the bottom of a "confinedtosuccess" blog that you wrote. I'm excited to get started on learning the process.

One question I had was did you have a job at the time you started your training on Wealthy Affiliate or were you fully unemployed?
The reason I'm asking is because I'm recently unemployed and would like to spend my time working on this as much as I can so I don't have to go back to working at a fast food restaurant or swing a hammer on a construction site.

Look forward to hearing from you,
Dom

Hey Dom, glad you found me!

I started WA when I was already fully unemployed so I had to make this online thing work. Initially, I fell for a bunch of scams and lost a lot of time and money before finding WA so you're already a step ahead of the game.

Starting a successful online business requires a lot of perseverance and focus but it can be done. If you have a fire in your belly (which you seem to have), I see no reason why you can't earn a full-time living from home.

I hope that helps!

Best, Stephan
