Hi, I'm Forrest and it's great to be here again at Wealthy Affiliate.

I have actually been a member since February 2015 but, I had to leave for awhile and couldn't get back into my old account so, I created a new one.

Unfortunately, I lost the passion for the niche I was working on and this time around, I am starting fresh with a new niche.

Hey, it happens and your first niche may not be the right one for you long term.

Looking forward to networking with all of you and helping those of you who I can.

I received your message but can't reply back. The reply button is not active. Please it seems my WA account is restricted somehow. it seems I am being restricted to do certain things like create training, send or receive PMs and other things which I don't even know yet without any warning or notification. I am totally down and frustrated now because I don't even know my offense for which I have to suffer these restrictions everywhere in my WA account. Please help me out on this. I am completely down and sorrowful. Thanks

Click on the help center link then, click on the pic of Kyle or Carson and see if you can send them a message.
I'm sure if you were being restricted due to some type of an infraction, you would have received notification

Thanks for hearing your voice! I think I have sent messages to Kyle but he didn't reply me on this issue and I got more frustrated and so much worried. This is my 4th month of investing into this business. Thanks

I have just done exactly what you asked me to do and I could send a private message to Kyle though I haven't heard from him till this moment. Thanks

Hey hagstf, you added a comment to my request for help by sending the lesson 8, customizing your menu. I wanted to say that was fine, but what I needed has to do with adding on to the home menu at my website. For instance when I click on the home baton, what drops from there is 'my site' if you are navigating at the back office to your main site. It is here that I am seeking ways to add on 'my store', any further help?

Here is a training on how to create a drop-down menu but, you will only be able to create one on your home button if you added the home button yourself, as opposed to it having been done automatically in your theme.

I see that you are very clearly focused on 1 niche. Very difficult for me, I have too many interests and do not enjoy my current career, I, therefore, try to steer away from anything to do with it, maybe not a wise idea. Can helping people to relocate to tax-free havens be a niche?

Hi Louis, sorry for the late reply but, I know what you mean and you can use that dissatisfaction with your current situation as an incentive to keep building your business.

Good luck to you

Hey Hey great to see you my friend, I had left for awhile too due to some personal issues but, I am back again as of Black Friday.

I let my site go and I am working on a bootcamp site now through the Super Affiliate Challenge but, it has been slow going as my time and energy level isn't where I need it to be to work on my site.

One of my jobs is supposed to be cutting my hours but, they can't find anyone else lol

Glad to see you are back, keep in touch

PM me if you want to see the new site

Most excellent!
Well, we shall be on the same super affiliate path!!!
Together then! (Dark Crystal ref)
*chuckles*
I'm not in Kyle's program and didn't know about it til I had already set my mind to it. This whole 3 years being in WA i never felt passion for a niche stronger than WA (a profitable passion to be exact...i went to college for the non-profitable passions.)

I will send you my site as well when she actively producing! Oe article a day is insane with my schedule but, I know one thing for sure about myself, I work well under pressure!

So much love dear one!.
I won't be socializing much (for all the obvious reasons ha) but, I will be lurking always *cackles*

WE CAN DO THIS!!!

hagstf Premium
That's ok, the training is publicly posted so you can still follow along and you are right, we can do this and it's weird that you made yourself visible here on the exact day that I had pizza for lunch, go figure! lol
Keep in touch

Welcome back Forrest:
My niche has to do with organic agriculture, which is my passion, I am a Mexican organic farmer myself and I also produce supplies for organic agriculture (which is the name of my niche). I am now starting one more promoting WA which is the goal of the Super Wealthy Affiliate Group Mentored by Kyle.
I hope you find a great nich to build around my friend.
Eugenio.

Hi Forrest,

I also lost interest in a niche that was maturing nicely. Recently, I heard this advice from Steve Jobs:

"The ones that were successful loved what they did so they could persevere when it got really tough. The ones who didn’t love it quit – because they were sane!

"You’ve got to love it. You’ve got to have passion."

“If you’re going to start something new, you have to feel really passionate about it because it’s really hard ... it’s so hard that if you’re not passionate about it you’ll give up.”

Cheers,
Henri

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!
People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 3,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

Hi Kyle,
Thank you for reaching out.
I am working hard, as time allows, on my bootcamp site.

In the process now of writing my WA review.
Actually, your message was very timely in that, I am in the process of discussing the many ways you can get support here at WA.
Needless to say, a screenshot of your message just made it into the review.
Can't wait for you to see it when it's finished.

Excellent Forrest, that is great to hear. If you need a hand with anything else moving forward, let me know and I will be more than happy to help you out. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Forrest! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Forrest!

Hi Kyle,
Thanks for reaching out. I intend to go premium but can't just yet so I do appreciate the communication extension.
Wishing you and your family all the best.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Forrest, 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 Forrest.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thanks Leo, thanks for reaching out. Started bootcamp. Have my privacy policy and about me published. Main menu all set up. Working on the get started page now.
Unsure at this point if I should go with a static home page or a blogroll.
Trying to take things one step at a time.

It's best to go with a blog roll, this way visitors will always see new content - it also gives people a reason to come back to your site to see your latest content
