About KrisJacobs
Joined May 2016
My name is Kris Jacobs and I am a 29 year old married father of 2 amazing daughters. I have been managing a direct sales office for almost 4 years now, and I'm ready for the next step in my life that will allow me to spend much more needed time with the wife and kids.

I used to work in construction and general labor, like most the population here does, and I found myself away from home almost 75% of the time. I would work out of town Monday through Friday, be back at home by almost midnight friday night, and would have to be back on the road by 4 AM monday morning in order to be on site by 8. I found myself missing out on all of my oldest daughters "firsts". First steps, first words, first birthday, yup I missed it all. Then I decided to bite the bullet and change professions. I got into direct sales where I made a pretty decent income, and as such was promoted to General Manager of Operations almost 4 years ago.

Still today I find myself in the same position I was almost 4 years ago, all day every day at the office, away from my family. Hence why I'm here today, hopefully to start something that will allow me to work from home, and be there for my family when they need me the most.

So looking forward to what WA has to offer, and can't wait to meet all of you!

Hey, Kris, thanks for following me back.
It sounds like you've got a lot of incentive to get really good at this really fast. You can do this.
All you need to do is, do your lessons, ask for help when you need it, apply what you learn, take any subject you enjoy and build a business you love... that's it.
All the best.
Phil

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live last week and the one on sleep apnea has been up for a couple of months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)

KrisJacobs Premium
Actually I was thinking of my niche being in computer games, news reviews, and Playthroughs. Im a hobby live streamer as well and I'd love to somehow connect the two so that I can almost take care of 2 birds with one stone.

What do you think?
Reply
johncruz Premium
That will work and there is definitely a huge market for that too.
Reply
KrisJacobs Premium
I figure its a HUGE market that only gets more and more in depth as time goes on, plus if I can somehow find a way to link my live streams into my site, it would allow for a much more personable and connected community. A place they can connect with me directly, and even get to know me personally. Im excited about that type of idea.
Reply
johncruz Premium
Yeah that is definitely possible and you can always do Youtube videos that they can see whenever they want. This is still a great way for people to get personal with you.
Reply
johncruz Premium
That is exactly how I saw things, which forced me to look for other things. I looked at myself 5 years from when I was at my old job and I realized that I would still be making pennies. I knew to be successful in any business it was going to take a sacrifice and some hard work, which is what I did. Rather than doing the old traditional way of business, I did it the WA way. With only 2 years under my belt as an online marketer, I already make more money than that job paid me. Now I just scale my existing business and watch the pay grow too. 5 years from now, I can only imagine where I'd be.

You're in a great place Kristoffer and you have all the help you need to get you to where you want to be. Of course my kids had the biggest impact on my decision, so I know exactly how you feel.

What's up Kristoffer and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track, as I know how it is to land somewhere without any direction.

You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people, who will help you along the way so that's something you can expect.

As a new member here, you want to put up a pic (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so that it can be easier for others to help you.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". We all started somewhere so don't feel alone. Take things one day at a time and everything will start to make sense.

Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and enjoy what your free membership has to offer.



- John
