Hello Jake glad you made it here and congratulations on going premium. This is a great career and it requires dedication and a love for writing, atleast if you plan on enjoying it.

As for your multiple interests, I was the same way. Its hard to choose. You are supposed to choose ONE then NARROW it down, REALLY!?!? LOL

My tip is that in order to do this, choose like two or three and quickly build out a free site for each, just the structure, names and maybe a little content.
This is the important part, you later return to work on them and continue to do so, after a couple weeks have passed, one will get indexed because that is the one you have naturally selected to pour your time into. That will be the obvious choice. Sometimes its difficult to even know exactly what we want. This way worked for me, I hope it will for you as well.

Please feel free to reach out at any time. A like and follow is of course appreciated :) I am following you also.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

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! :)

JakeSinko Premium
Hey Kyle, thanks for reaching out. A few ideas I am floating around:
- Outdoor Ice Hockey/Pond Hockey
- Baby gear from a dad’s perspective
- Backpacking/Camping

I’m not sure how to extrapolate these into websites and incomes and wondered if you have advice. What kind of products would be able to be affiliated inside these and/or what kind of content could be written for them?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

Create your content with intent. By this I mean, when someone is done reading your post they are going to ask themselves "now what".

At this point you need to have intent and get them to do something, whether this be comment on your post (leave feedback), check out your top recommended product, or to perform some other action. If you don't give them something to do, they will most likely close your site and never come back...which is pure traffic leak.

I have created training on this that I think will be very helpful:

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Jake? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Thanks for checking in Kyle! I am just working through the training as able. I have a ton of questions, but know most will be answered in the training at this point. I think my main problem is what a lot of people seem to have- what is my niche? Specifically, is it too broad or too narrow?

And I just snagged the first motnh of premium with the discount. Thanks for the reminder!

Congrats on going Premium Jake, 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!

How's it going?
Just touching base to see if there is anything I can help with. I always like to check in after a few days if possible because I know Wealthy Affiliate can be overwhelming at times, especially if you're new to online business... and of course, I know how life can get in the way :-)
If there's anything I can do to help make your journey here easier, just let me know.

Random question Jay- is my profile picture too “professional” for here? It is from a more professional type job a few years ago and I just keep it around for stuff like this. I definitely could go in a different direction though.

Congrats on going premium, sorry I wasn't online last night (movie night with the family). Your picture is perfect for your profile. I'm the opposite, I need a professional picture, lol. Really it's all up to you, and from the community engagement here I'd say it works
:-D

Hope everything is going great... I know how it can be tough to find time when you have a family. We're here to help in every way possible... unfortunately though, whipping up a batch of free time hasn't worked yet, despite efforts. 😀

Also, if you have any questions about premium let me know.

Hi Jake, and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

I just wanted to reach out, say Hi and see if you have any questions.

The community is also available if you have any questions, and... Kyle or Carson (Wealthy Affiliate's co-founders) will often stop by and welcome new members. Just hit reply to any of our messages if you need anything.

Just a couple things to keep in mind...

One - There's no rush to interact with the community (when you're new it's understandable if it takes time to get comfortable). Many of us know the feeling...

You're more than welcome to hang out and "listen in" on our conversations and when you're ready, join in. But please don't hesitate to take advantage of the opportunity. The support here at Wealthy Affliate is the best in the internet marketing industry and the connections you make here can change everything.

Two - You can always get access to me for one-on-one help by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/j-kwest (as well as responding directly to this message).

There are a ton of other features worth exploring and they are all explained in the main training... just hit the green Get Started Button in the top left (if you haven't already).

This is where you'll learn how industry experts are earning passive income online...

... but there is so much more. You can meet and talk to those same experts here as well... and you will find out they are real people with similar stories to your own and are happy to help out and share with you what they know. If you've ever felt "in the dark" about making money online or how home-based entrepreneurs are doing it... you won't feel that way anymore.

You also have access to the exact tools we are using, and the same training that teaches you how to use them.

Before you go, I'd just like to ask if you can respond quickly to this message with just a few words so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

I look forward to getting to know you and following your success. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if there's something you need.

Hey Jay, thanks so much for reaching out. I honestly don't even know what my questions are yet, but I know I will have a lot of them. I don't know what I am doing or how to do it, I just know I want a better life for my family.

With you having younger children (mine are 1mo and 2.5 yrs) I would love any wisdom you have as it relates to being a dad and husband while doing something like this (I currently have a "regular" full time job in corporate America, but don't make very much).

Thanks brother.

Hey Jake,
Wow, 1 month old... congratulations! Hopefully you're getting some sleep, lol. 2.5 years can be a challenge at times as well :-)

Doing something like this as a dad and husband is a great question. I've never been asked that before. It's something I've given a lot of thought to (obviously) but I should definitely be careful with the advice I give. My approach is certainly not for everyone.

I think we all have our unique challenges and being a parent is one of them. And there's no way around it. We only have so many hours in a day and something has to give. So the most important thing is your "why".

In my case I was going to live or die by my "why" which meant giving myself permission to do what I had to... which isn't easy when you have a family.

Despite not always being present with my family, I always let them know the reason for doing this was to make a better life for all of us.
