Great goals Gerard,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

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! :)

Hi Kyle. I just upgraded to Premium!

I did lesson 3 today which deals with finding my niche. I am passionate about life coaching, self-help/personal development so I'm thinking about the area of motivation/success aimed at young adults who want to get from where they are to where they want to be OR providing parents with the knowledge and tools to help their teenagers to do the same. What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance for your expert feedback :)

Congrats on going Premium Gerard, I know you are absolutely going to love it. In the coming days, weeks and months ahead you are really going to see your business start taking shape. I can't wait to see it unfold.

You have everything you need here at WA now, take action, work hard, stay persistent and ask for help if you ever feel even remotely stuck. Lots of help here!

Self development is a trap niche, as is the "life coaching" niche. Whom do you want to help specifically, self develop what? Someone looking to develop better skills in their relationship with their spouse or someone looking to get over their fear of public speaking, or someone looking to......etc?

You need to narrow this down to something that is more specific.

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. :)

Thanks for your quick and useful feedback Kyle. I will continue to work on defining my niche or changing it. I don't understand the term "trap niche". Can you please explain what you meant by that? Thanks.

It means a niche that isn't really a niche (it is a category with 1,000's of niches within it).

Hi Gerard,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Great to have you on board :)

You'll probably experience a bit of information overload in the first few days. There is a lot of training and resources in here.

I suggest you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification: If you would ever get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help!

Cheers,
Ronnie
