About JoeHurley
Joined July 2015
I took an early retirement from the insurance industry back in 2009 when the economy more or less bottomed-out. Believe me retirement isn't all its cracked up to be. Not having a routine work schedule to run on each day and doing something productive such as earning some money is just not good for the soul. I'm here at WA to sort out what I know I'm capable of doing online but have just put if off so many times I suppose for fear of failing at a new challenge. I suppose there is some truth as we get older that making a change becomes harder to deal with and learning something completely new will take more time and effort than when we were younger. Life goes by so quickly and hindsight really is 20/20 as I have passed up some good opportunities for success simply because my priorities were wrong at the time. So, I've made up my mind this time, that I'm here at WA to get an education in building a foundation for an online business in some form or fashion learning new skills which will help me not only earn some money down the road but find some fulfillment in doing something worthwhile as a retiree. So, with that said, I'm happy to be here and intend on following through no matter what this time. Procrastination is unacceptable at this point! WA comes highly recommended as the place to be, but only if a person is serious about an online business and means to give their all to be successful at it. So,since I'm here bearing my soul with who knows how many people will read this I've gotta follow through this time for sure.

Thanks Kyle, yes everything is OK on this end. I just haven't had a lot of time today to really focus on WA. As I was sharing yesterday, I have my niche in the Health and Fitness category. So there's no problem as far as want I want to do. I appreciate you sending me the video earlier today. I will look at it before this day ends which is usually about 3am EDT in the morning here. I've found I get a whole lot more done in the wee hours of the morning when everything shuts down and I can do some serious brainstorming etc. Again, thanks for checking in with me Kyle.

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Joe is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Joe , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

PS. I hope you have an awesome week ahead!

Thanks Kyle, I'll throw myself into WA later on today and work my way through the 10 lessons over the next 6 days and get a better feel of the site since I have so much free time on my hands. I will have some questions I'm sure but am definitely interested in what you guys have to offer. Thanks for your comment!

I do have a question Kyle being that I'm on Lesson #3 concerning choosing a niche having just watched your video. As I mentioned in my introduction briefly about being active on ebay, I have an unusual niche for a guy being that I sell womens clothing both new and used on ebay. I kind of fell into what I do on ebay through my daughter who started a business a couple of years ago on the side coordinating high-end professional women's closets with the latest fashions. By this I mean having a background as a merchandise buyer and working in a local boutique she(my daughter) was able to build up a rather impressive clientale of professional women who look to her (my daughter) and her expertise in keeping up with the latest fashions in womens' clothing. My daughter would then shop for these clients based on her personal recommendations.
My daughter called me one day and asked me if I would be interested in trying to sell some clothes on ebay. I told her I would try it and see what happens. You see Kyle, these clients of my daugher's would give her clothes, some with the tags still on them having never been worn along with used clothes they no longer wanted for various reasons. These clothes were funneled down to me many with some very pricey price tags still on them.
This was how I got started selling womens clothing. Bear in mind I didn't know a darn thing about womens clothing and couldn't even name you one name brand line at the time. Anyhow to make a long story short, I started doing this the end of Novemeber 2014 and have sold 200+ outfits,dress pants, casual pants, jeans, tops, blouses, dresses, sweaters, jackets, capris, formal wear etc. In just a few short months I've taught myself about women's clothing having handled some of the top brands out there. So, my question is this. Since I sell so many different lines of womens clothing on a daily basis; to represent these lines as an affiliate marketer wouldn't I have to join every line's affiliate program and have a site representing each line? Women's clothing is a niche for sure, but I sell so many different categories(or sub-niches) under women's clothing how would I represent them all?
(dress pants, casual pants, jeans, tops, blouses, dresses, sweaters, jackets, capris, formal wear).
Please, let me know Kyle what your expertise tells you in sorting this possibility of making what I'm doing on eBay as a starting point for an online business. As I stated in my intro I don't want to stay an Ebayer the rest of my life. There is greener grass out there!
Your response will be appreciated.

I would pinpoint one aspect of this, you are not going to be able to target this whole niche as you would on ebay with your website and there is much more success when you specialize online versus trying to be a jack of all trades.

So narrow it down to an aspect of women's clothing.

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 women 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. :)

Thanks for your reply Kyle, after brainstorming with the wife, I've decided to let eBay be eBay and have chosen a sub-niche in the health niche which will work perfectly for who Iam. I have already chosen a domain name after trying various combinations of key words for this particular sub-niche and finally got it nailed it down. I suppose I should go ahead and buy this domain even though I haven't arrived at that point in the training yet? I guess GoDaddy is as good as any of them out there for buying a domain name, true?

You can definitely buy the domain at this point, I just suggest that before you do you go through this discussion I created on how to properly choose a domain name just to make sure all of your i's are dotted. And if you want to run any domain ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand.

Ok Kyle will take your advice and complete lesson 4. It makes sense to not rush ahead of things but to stay on track and watch everything unfold in due time. Thanks for your reply!
