Hi Jimster, many thanks for the follow, and congrats on going Premium. Don't you just love it at WA - wish I'd found it years ago!!
As for gravatar, I found it much easier to upload or drag n drop a photo I already has, don't know if that's any help for you. All the best, Chrissie

Hi Jim,
Welcome to WA. Saw that as a newbie you had some questions from one of the lessons. Just want you to know that I've been here for 2 months and am also very new to this online business. Its great to ask questions, but myself not being real computer savvy, I've found that I still didn't understand some of the terminology from the answers! Anyway, just wanted to encourage you to hang in there...I've found through the generous help of the WA community, trial and error, step by step, I'm slowly learning and creating. Wish you much success with your journey here...
Warm Regards,
Kathy (Westwaters)

Thanks Kathy....it was a very trying day...y'think you're able to explain yourself but something usually gets lost...I think I may be trying to do too much at once as well...take a day off and think you've lost out on something...just gotta take it one day at time.

Cheers!

I am wishing you the best. Working for yourself is the ONLY way to go! Once you have your online businesses on autopilot then you can retire anyway. The whole idea of retirement - sitting at home on a rocking chair sounds boring to me! I think of retirement as doing the things I like to do while my businesses churn out profit even while I sleep! I would like to work maybe about four hours a day on the computer and then take the rest of the day off...I like to go to the gym and work out for a couple hours, play guitar, and walk around shops looking at the latest merchandise. I deliver kids to school and pick them up regularly too.
Reply
Jimster Premium
That's excellent...I had the same sort of thing in mind for retirement...of course if you sat around in a rocking chair, things would tend to sieze up on you, Just having the income to afford to do the things we like is a gaol all in it's own.

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Jimster Premium
Hi Kye....thanks for reaching out...I was think about Reusable Home & Kitchen products...ppl save money and conserve...your thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that could definitely be your niche, just consider the commercial intent of that niche though. What products/services would you be recommending?

If this is limited, this sort of site would likely be more advertising driven, but people looking to repurpose things are also buying a lot of stuff online as well.
Reply
Jimster Premium
I have a few in mind...and there seemed to plenty on Amazon...so I can narrow it down some from there I think.

Thx Man!

Allow me to personally welcome you to our Wealthy Affiliate family, you had made a wise decision to try out the program and if you use it wisely within the next few days you will learn a lot and also meet some wonderful people that will not hesitate to help you personally.

The most difficult part is always to TAKE ACTION and I strongly advise you to start with the "Get Started Here" section of Wealthy Affiliate as soon as possible in order to get the valuable head start that you need towards building an online business and earning money.

Just remember every day you sit idle is a day wasted!

Never hesitate to ask for help here on Wealthy Affiliate all of us will do our best to help.

I'm still a little leary but I really need to get going on this. Pouring thru the first few lessons and I will more than likely select the Premium Membership in the next day or two. Just curious, I haven't been able to put a last name to Kyle or Carson. Would you know? Odd question perhaps but it would help put me at ease a little more. I dunno, call me crazy....

Christene9 Premium
Both of them prefer to be only addressed by their first names for branding purposes. In addition, nowadays the majority of marketers prefers to use internet names instead of their real ones to have some privacy. I am familiar with their last names, but don't think it would be polite if I give them out. WA is more than 10 years old and have a good reputation online. In addition, you can always find Kyle around on the platform, certain time of day he is also on the life chat. Feel free to ask him questions, been here for 3 years, and he always replies directly to a question in the live chat.

Remember, you can stay a free member for as long as you want, no rush to go premium. My advice, before you upgrade, finish the free training and test out the platform properly and then only make a decision. The first 7 days, you have access to the live chat, use it to say hi to others and ask questions. Best way to ease your concerns, would be to talk directly to others as well.

Ok thx....understandable I guess...gotta tell you tho, I've learned more in these first few sessions than I have in a month or so on another platform...thx for input and appreciate the patience...cheers for now...

Hi Chritene...so I'm thinking I wanna go premium for the domainname dot com....ie: without the siterubix host...do you think that's necessary? or just get the website built with domainanme dot siterubix dot com and get earning money?

1. I have a domain name but of course it will not be related to the niche I have choosen. Can I rename the domain?
2. I'm pretty sure I need to be an Amazon affilaite and is there any cost associated to that?
3. Do I have to start over the whole process/courses again once I go premium?
4. If i decide to not go premium right now (I think I know this answer but) can I change the domain name later? I'm thinking yes.
5. I know there a LOT of affiliate programs out there, what's your experience in finding good ones to sell their product that would relate to my niche?

A lot of questions I know but I need to get it out there sooner than later...I hope you understand.

Thx,
Jim
