About GrantCA
Joined January 2015
Hi, I'm Grant - on a new venture... I've recently been made redundant from a 13 year career in special education, leading me In the past few months to search for a way to make a sustainable income based on my knowledge, skills, interest and passions.
Being made redundant has been quite traumatic in many ways, but I have now come to see it as an opportunity to rebuild and in a way re-create myself. My work within the education sector has been limited to primarily teaching young adults independent living skills, within the context of a working kitchen.
I am a self-taught cook with a deep interest and passion for nutrition and human development, which informed the content of my delivery to the learners as well as the the food we served.
I see 'Wealthy Affiliate' as an opportunity to promote something that I have some knowledge of, and a deep passion for, to many beyond the classroom walls. To encourage and promote health and wellness while creating an honest and ethical business for myself.

GrantCA,
I think you have a fantastic niche, one that is sure to grow by leaps and bounds once it's discovered.
Sitting at my computer drinking a flask of Kombucha green tea, I was just thinking I would love to know how to make it in my kitchen. Please can you let that be the next probiotic drink recipe you post? Then send me a 'heads up' so I can get started. I'd really appreciate it.
Best wishes .....

Hi again Lina - my recipes section is slowly building - and kombucha is the first one I've posted. You can find it here http://probiotichealthy.com/recipe/why-i-love-kombucha
It's really easy to make once you've got the right ingredients and a whole lot cheaper than buying it.
Let me know how you get on.
I'll leave a comment on your site in return for yours earlier. Thanks

How can I obtain the original SCOBY if making the recipe for the first time?

It would be wonderful to be able to purchase these foods and supplements on your site. Do you plan to monetize it soon?
Reply
grantCA Premium
I have some work to do don't I, missing a trick of two. Need to spend some time to monetize properly.
For now get a SCOBY online - google it and look for a supplier closest to you. You can get them dehydrated and with how to instructions..
I don't mean to pass up a sale, but that's due to my lack of action getting things set up properly. Once again thanks for the push...

GrantCA,
I just left you a message on your site (articles on probiotics). I love your logo. Would you mind sharing the source so that perhaps I can obtain one for my site?

Hi Lina, thanks for your message and kind comments - I will get to work with recommendations for probiotic supplements. Thanks for the push...
You can get a free logo here http://www.logogarden.com/
It's quite fun to get creative and there's many options - so enjoy!

Grant, 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 Grant.

Hi Kyle, thanks for your encouragement. I'm committed to my success and WA. It does seem like a lot of work sometimes, however I see this as a massive investment and worth the work for sure. I'm loving the program and the community - so many good people around!

The thing is, creating a business is no more work than working for someone else and often times it doesn't even feel like work because you are choosing something that you are passionate/interested about.

As you move forward you will see your business take shape. :)

So glad you are enjoying thus far and if you ever need a hand with anything as you do move forward, let me know and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Hi Kyle, making some progress thanks - considering upgrading. Would appreciate some feedback on my niche idea? I posted this earlier and have had no response. Thanks
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sorry, what is your niche idea Grant? Let me know and I will give you some feedback here.

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. :)

PS. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
