About JeromeDM
Joined April 2017
Hi! My name's Jerome Matthews. I'm a young web developer and digital media enthusiast from the Caribbean - Kingston Jamaica to be exact. I'm hugely interested in the world of online business and am looking to gain the skills and know how to create and grow online platforms (as well as passive income).
I love to learn and spend a great deal of my time online taking courses and exposing myself to new concepts and ideas through my social media accounts.

I'm very active, I have a past and deep curiosity in the arts and sciences, I took the 3 sciences in high school (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics (taught myself- another story all together why I had to) along with art. In College, I pursued a BSc. In Management Information Systems. (MIS) - Basically programming and enterprise software management for businesses I blended the brains and brawn of things in my time out of school, since I spent my time between learning to program and learning to perform on stage in college. I enrolled in a dance company because I wanted to get formal training :)

I was the weird dude that liked both ballet and breakdancing breakin - or b-boying - was my first love though, lol it took some getting used to for the formalities of classical ballet to take hold on me. I'm willing to give almost anything an honest try at least once, I've learnt stuff like parkour and free-running, Network Marketing, learnt to and taught swimming for a bit, Visual effects, and video editing, graphic design, and a host of other skills from my what seems like infinite curiosity with the world around me...

After college I took up a job working at one of the lone competitive gymnastics clubs in the entire island of Jamaica - Nishida's Gymnastics, partly at the request of the owner, my past and still coach (when he can find the time lol) Shin Nishida. Also partly to continue chasing one of my childhood dreams of competing at an international grade gymnastics competition such as the PAN AM games or the World Championships. Sensei told me that he'd always have a place for me to train and apply that work ethic that he had always loved seeing when my bros and I came into gym. So now 4 years into the game I'm looking to level off and expand my options while hopefully giving back to my gym and other mentors that have helped me in the arts and tech field.

I'm working on my first startup; A currently soloprenuership web and mobile application development company called nomad web and media. Looking to meet like minded people that are growing their wealth and options through the online business that I can learn from. I've been described as a sponge before lol because of my observed behaviour to just take in all I can when I'm learning about things that interest me.

Stuff about me:
- I'm a youngster - just turned 25
- I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie.
- I'm self a proclaimed and proud introvert. (contradictory ain't it?)
- I LOVE books (The non-fiction type along personal development and business mostly these days)
- I'm left handed
- I love parkour and free-running
- I train in and coach competitive women's artistic gymnastics WAG (girls coach but train on male equipment - interesting, huh? lol)
- I dream of travelling a lot and experiencing different cultures
- I I know a bit of basic Japanese.
- I love Asian culture - particularly Japanese.

Hi Jerome! Sorry, I've been on a sort of hiatus, dealing with personal issues, and putting the family house up for sale, etc. I am hoping that someone has responded to your queries! That's the nice thing about WA. We all pitch in!
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! :)

Morning Kyle!
Yes, I do have niche ideas. I have one I'd like to test out and see. Will be running it by you soon. Thank a lot! :D

There are many many ways to generate an income online. Many here have multiple streams from a wide variety of sources. Once you get your site up and running, and you're consistently blogging, the sky is really the limit!

Yes, I've been privy myself to a number. I researched online and found a very good authority in the space: Patt Flynn of the Smart Passive Income Podcast. I learnt about affiliate marketing from his getting started podcast. I believe 192 (was a 3 part series)
Once I understood that there was such a manner of creating passive income (and ethical to boot) I knew I wanted to learn more about it. I find that I love curating things and sharing the things I find online - given the nature of my fields I spend a lot of time online coaching gymnastics as my day job and working on my design and web development ventures when I'm not training or coaching in the gym.

I also enjoy listening to Pat Flynn... not as often as I'd like... That's part of the problem - there's SOOOOO many things to do!
