About HotBizMan
Joined October 2009
Hi there! Hope all is well with you. Here are some things about me that you may like. My name is Don McElyea and I'm originally from Athens, Tennessee, now living in Gatlinburg, TN. I'm divorced with no kids. I have a BA degree in speech and theater. Some of my hobbies and interests are sailing, writing, reading most anything, traveling, strolling along the beach, hiking in the mountains, camping, motorcycles, bicycling, most all kinds of music, TV, action/adventure/romance movies, the theater, romantic candlelit bubble baths, giving and receiving back rubs and full body massages, the Internet, and I'm trying to learn as much as I can about writing ebooks for Amazon Kindle. I'm a good listener and I think I have a good sense of humor. I like to have fun in life if I can. Life is much too short and there's lots more things I want to do before I exit this world. Which brings me to WA. I'm really hoping and setting my goals to having my own Internet Business so I won't have to work for another person as I do now. If you want to know more about me or if I can help you in any way, please let me know. To everyone's success, Don

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 Don, thanks for the follow! Great connecting with you. Nice to meet someone whose a bit of a veteran here!! ;-)

Btw, Any ebook advice? I just asked a question about that - and if you have anything to add to the discussion, I'd really appreciate it! Why did you go for Kindle, may I ask?!

Here's the question I asked: Sarah

HotBizMan Premium
Thanks for the friendship. As to ebooks, Kindle has a lot of help for the ebook writer. Also, Bookfuel has some good info. There's not too much here at WA on ebooks. I wish they were. What type of ebook do you want to write? Take care, Don
Reply
SarahAnt Premium
Well the ebook I am currently writing is a specific topic related to my niche. (Internet safety issues for families!) Thinking of it as a free giveaway to build a list in which I'm not sure kindle would be the tool to use. It's whether to make it a paid offering or not!
Reply
SarahAnt Premium
You are right. Getting info on ebooks is only through asking questions on WA or individual trainings. Not recognised so much as a technique to include a lesson on. More is the shame!
Reply
HotBizMan Premium
If you are trying to get an email list I would have your ebook as a free one in order to acquire their email address. I still think you should check out Kindle and see what they can help you with.

Brill! Thanks for the advice!

Have a great day!

One other thing about ebooks, If you have Facebook type in the words: ebooks, writers of ebooks. Anything along that order and you might find groups to your liking that you would like to join.

Good luck and you have the best hobby in the world and that is sailing. I have been sailing for the last 44 years and would not trade it in for any other sport. I also worked in the Industry for Hunter, Jeanneau, Dufour and Catalina Yachts, to bad the economy hit hard because I would still be in the industry. My sailing playground is Lake Champlain. Best place for a sailor is the Annapolis boat show.

Hi Don, Welcome back to WA. I have a friend with a similar skill set to you. She and her husband teach Public speaking from a theatrical point of view. She has a book called "There's no such thing as Public Speaking" Have a look I think you may find a few pearls in there. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Welcome to WA! Looks like you have a lot of interests there. :) Full body massage is also an interest of mine as well as my husband. Looks like any one of these could be a good niche, especially massage. Have you decided on a niche yet? I'm interested in guitars and guitarist's physical and emotional health, in short mind/body health and avoiding common RSI injuries as well as checking out what available in Acoustic Guitars, accessories, and helping people find guitars for their musical needs and therapy. I'm adding you to my buddy list. :)
