About KevinOConnor
Joined March 2018
I am semi retired after spending time as a teacher, USAF officer, and academic advisor and counselor. I have lived in California, Illinois, and now Alaska as well as Australia, Spain and South Korea. I have 4 wonderful children and 5 grandchildren. My wife and I have 13 rescue dogs, most of whom were mushing dogs but who are now retired to a life of Riley. I enjoy writing (novels and screenplays), travel, cooking, astronomy, and music. Besides helping family (get my sons student loans paid off and getting all children debt free) my main goals are to help homeless vets and abandoned and abused animals. from profits made in my business.

Hi Kevin:
My name is Nancy. You and I have a lot in common. I love dogs, any animal really and I've always been interested in writing. I did a bit in school and wrote a bit of poetry later on in life but haven't really pursued it like I'd like. I'm also a voracious reader. And helping homeless Vets has always been one of my goals. Hopefully this career path will allow me to indulge my passions.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for adding me to your network. I've added you to mine as well.

And, first off, I want to say thank you for your service. And I also want to say bless you for having such selfless goals.

I've got quite a few current and former military folks in my family, so that's close to my heart. But I also am a HUGE animal lover. So thank you for what you already do in that respect. It really does warm my heart to hear how your rescue dogs are living the "life of Riley." ;) Please give them all pets for me!

Best wishes to you on your journey here at WA! May you achieve all your goals and then some!

Hi Kevin, thank you for following me. I will be following you as well. Welcome to WA. I retired from the Air Force reserves myself in 2015. You have a great bio. I admire your goals. I have written a couple plays and a screenplay myself. So I can appreciate the work you have put into them. I am related to one academy award winning uncle George Seaton that was a screen writer and director in the film industry. His film was "Miracle on 34Th Street." You can Google his bio to review his other credits. Building this web-site is forcing me to stir up my creative juices and exercise them.

Cheers,
Judson

It's great. Since I don't believe in coincidences I am grateful that I am being led in a new direction. I have two ideas for web pages to get me started. Last night I had an epiphany for a new one that has risen my excitement level and will mesh quite nicely with my interests, talents and skills, unlike the others that I would have to do research on. Here we go, a new direction but the right one!

I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.

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! :)

Hi Kyle.
Let me throw an idea past you. I am looking at developing a personal development site focusing on the whole person. By that I mean a page for spiritual, page for emotional, page for mental, page for physical/health, personality and financial. Each with Articles and affiliate sites for people to purchase products according to their need. Far too often people only grow in one area but this is meant as I said to be whole person. The site would be called For your Personal Development
Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Self development is a trap niche, as is the "life coaching" niche. Whom do you want to help specifically, self develop what? Someone looking to develop better skills in their relationship with their spouse or someone looking to get over their fear of public speaking, or someone looking to......etc?

You need to narrow this down to something that is more specific.

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. :)

Hello Kevin and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thank you Kevin...your profile as a father/grandfather and all-around family man is admirable...however as a rescuer of dogs and the homeless you have struck a cord that runs deep to my sensibilities in life. My most heartfelt appreciation for your every
effort in this engagement.

Having come from an unpredictable childhood has had the benefit of seeing others behavior a bit more keenly and this awareness of giving, is a priceless quality.
Certainly in our present world circumstances, awareness to the needs of others is of vital concern as we seem hell-bent upon a
destructive self-serving attitude among far too many...something will surely give without a conscious decision to make a difference.

Pleased to meet you here Kevin And I look forward to reading your posts as I believe the surprises will continue...thanks for being here to share at WA

Welcome to WA and to Premium, Kevin! You'll find great training, helpful members, and a lot to implement when growing your online business. I like your why for the profits you earn. I believe that there should "not" be any homeless vets, nor should there be any abused animals! Ugh! ;( When someone has served our country, they should have the help they need for the rest of their lives. Period. :) Thank you so much for serving our country!

I wish you great WA success!

Hi, Kevin. Welcome to WA. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. I really enjoyed reading your bio. I think it's wonderful that you are so active in rescuing sled dogs. I also have a lot of respect for your working with homeless vets.

I have rescued several furkids over the years. Currently have a pointador who is very shy, but is getting better, and a Hemmingway cat with 6 toes on each of his front feet. Both are rescues.

Best wishes for your success at WA and with your "pet" projects.

Hi Kevin,

I am glad we met online via WA University Community – the right place to fulfill a dream succeeding in e-marketing, which can comfortably boast its unparalleled training and warm community support if its kind in the world.

To learn deeper each other, welcome to view my profile/bio inside WA as well as the posts inside the websites listed at the right lower corner of my WA profile page.

To succeed, I have been told by WA founders, ambassadors, and supporting members with helping souls with the following in mind and in action:
1. start 5-level Certification Courses.
2. Move on to 7-phases Affiliate Bootcamp Training after Certification Courses.
3. Ask questions as needed and seek any help and support, which are readily available from WA unique supporting souls and helping hands from its members, as evidenced along the path of training; you will not be disappointed.
4. Be consistent and persevering no matter what and will be richly rewarded.

My stay with WA since 9/2017 has confirmed the above is totally true.

All the best to your success to come,


James

You are a very interesting man. Your travel must have been wonderful. Only place I've been that you mentioned was Alaska way way back in 1955. My husband was stationed at Elmendorf air force base He was in army at gun site. Supposed to engage Russians for short time and then head for the hills. Worst thing I faced was a very large bull moose coming toward my front porch. Needless to say I was inside in a flash! Times have changed that beautiful country I'm sure. Just bar after bar for service men. I did get to see a glacier and took railroad trip to Mt. McKinley. Waste of our money. We got no closer than looking over the bay. Our first son was born in the territory of Alaska. I'm sorry. Your the second gentleman I've met today from there that I spouted my memories to. I'm 84 and haven't met too many people from there. It was one of my most precious memories. Forgive my going on and on
Thank you for following me
I'm following you also

HI Billie,
Great memories. You probably wouldn't recognize Anchorage and the surrounding areas now. We can see Denali (Mt McKinley) from the road gong to Fairbanks and you're right, you don't get close to it. A few times I flew on Alaska Air to Fairbanks, pilots would fly close to it to give passengers a close up view. That was fantastic.
Enjoy your day, and thanks for sharing the memories. Good luck here.

Thanks for the follow, Kevin. I've added you to my network as well.

I haven't mentioned it here on WA yet, but, like you, one of the underlying goals I have for my online business is helping a cause bigger than myself. Of course I want to make life better/easier for my family, but that "bigger picture" does give me an extra boost of motivation in moving forward here at WA because it's something near and dear to my heart. The more we make the more we can help, right?! :)

Thanks again for connecting. Have a positive and productive day!
