About HPrimer
Joined April 2016
Hello, I am Howard. I am a reformed lawyer and a compulsive serial entrepreneur.

I have a current passion for housing and the need to become more realistic about what it is, how to think about it from a needs and economic point of view, and that it is important to rethink the information that we have been fed in order to find the best solutions.

I have been blessed with a wonderful, loving wife, and the beautiful family that we share.

Hi Howard, I hope you are still within the community. I saw your posting about Avada. Are you still using it and if so, would you recommend it? I am seriously considering buying it. I'm tired of testing out various free themes here.

HPrimer Premium
Maddy, I am still here, but somewhat distracted dealing with a family medical challenge. I gave up on the Avada Theme and the free themes. I have settled on Thrive Theme and I am very happy with it.

I am sorry to hear you are struggling with family medical issues. We have gone through a fair share of them as well. I hope those issues are resolved soon.
What I loved about the Avada, is well, everything :) So this Thrive, did you buy it? Where could I see a demo of it?

Hi Howard

Never heard the phrase "serial entrepreneur" before, I like it! Thanks for connecting.

Judy, the nicest aspect of that phrase is that it accurately reveals my business background. Thanks for taking the time to share your kind words.

I feel like that sometimes because I'm constantly looking for something that would be successful for me. I am believing that WA would foot the bill.

Judy, WA is a wonderful way to unleash your entrepreneurial inspirations in the digital marketplace. I believe it is practical because it does not require very much capital. All entrepreneurial undertakings require diligence and patience. I, also, need to add durability. Good luck.

Thank you, Rick. I concur with your findings and support your effort. I have been marginally involved since I joined in April because I have been preoccupied with some family illnesses and resolving some latent business issues. I intend to become quite active when these distractions abate.

Hello Howard and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies such as yourself.

As you probably know or will find out soon enough internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 240+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating your site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

No probs Howard and you can certainly look forward to great informative blogs of mine within WA.
I usually sell the kind of info I blog about but the membership gets it all for free - I must be mad lol.

Hello Howard, ♫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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). 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. See you around, Greetings Loes

Good evening to you Howard, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. There is nothing better than to set up an online business to earn passive income, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As we grow older and wiser our illusion of working hard to make someone else rich begins to fade very rapidly. With the Internet, it is now possible to live the life you love. I recommend you learn first the Get Started Here [top left green box]. This will teach you the basics and when you find something you don't understand, ask the community. They are the secret sauce of WA.
I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.
Ken

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! :)

Thank you Kyle. I do have a great deal of experience and have many ideas that will fit under the large niche of housing. I have my own domain already and have made the initial efforts of building my website, which I have name A Primer on Housing. I am uncertain about how to get the ball rolling. I am impressed with what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can definitely be within the housing space online, but I would narrow down the initial direction with your website.

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. :)
Reply
HPrimer Premium
Thank you for the observation, Kyle. I believe that it will be helpful to have your feedback regarding the 4 distinct areas that I believe will be profitable for me. This is not in any particular order, other than logic:

1. I served for a number of years on the Board of the National Multi Housing Council, the organization that supports most of the companies that own and/or operate apartment communities throughout the world. I was an owner/operator up until recently. I have demonstrated that our unique approach to the operating side of the business gets significantly better outcomes, as measured by any of the metrics accepted by the platform. My audience is two-fold, the investors that own nearly 60% of that type of housing, and the operators that are managing these properties. I can generate substantial revenue by becoming a third-party manager to enhance performance.

2. My approach, as I indicated previously, is revolutionary and there is an excellent opportunity to get consulting revenues by stirring the pot and redefining the duties.

3. I have developed an analytical model that demonstrates that the economics of renting, rather than owning, is by far a better choice for most people. I believe that the model can be monetized.

4. The combination of my operating experience and my unique approach to this matter allows me to profit by becoming a high profile subject matter expert. This result will stimulate the revenue capability for the first three areas of focus, and may open up other possibilities.

As a quick aside, in 2006 I gave a speech and stated that even though the ratio of owned housing was nearly 70% of all housing, that ratio would be less than 50% by 2020. It is now appearing that my projection will be accurate. I can articulate the many reasons why I believe that to be true.

My reason for joining WA was to enable me to have the support that I need to determine how to roll all of this out in the most productive manner. I am eager for your assistance.

Howard

I would definitely recommend if this is your passion you head in this direction. There are an incredible amount of things you can talk about, that you can get ranked for, and through time, you can build yourself up as an online authority in this space (it sounds like you are already an offline one, so the transition is only natural).

Absolutely head in this direction with your website/foundation Howard.
