"Being the best we can is not a choice, it is a responsibility imposed upon us by virtue of the fact that we are free. There are no limits placed upon us here, other than those we impose upon ourselves."
CHARLIE RAGUS, FOUNDER, ADVOCARE INTERNATIONAL

As a single mother of two children and a grandmother of one wonderful grandson. I understand the difficulties we all face — particularly mothers — when balancing the pressing demands of ourselves and/or our children with the nutrition, health and physical fitness needs of themselves. I also know and am too familiar with families often live under tight budgets.

Acknowledging those constraints, the hardest thing for me to do was to set an example for my children by being active and having good eating habits with ALL the activities they were involved in as they were growing up. Not only did I have to encourage them to be physically active and eat right, I had to practice what I preached.

I began my life-long commitment to fitness at a young age. During my fifth grade year in elementary school, I began competing in track and field events. In my 6th grade year, I moved on to Cross Country. In high school, I continued with Cross County and began weight training. As an adult, I complimented my weight training with kickboxing/mixed martial arts (MMA) training.

Over time, I realized that I could inspire and improve not just myself but other people with my infectious love, excitement, and enjoyment of physical fitness. While exercising, I noticed that many people frequently asked me for assistance, instruction, opinions, or just to join them for a workout. In addition, they’d inquire about my nutrition, what I was eating to look fit maintain my energy level and so forth. I found myself being excited that people treasured my opinion and trusted me with their health, fitness, and well-being. Til this day, I keep remembering how they would get motivated because they see my motivation and/or feel my energy.

One day I decided that’s what I want to do! I wanted to help people prevent obesity, high blood pressure, and other health disorders while improving their self-confidence and pride through education and promotion of good eating habits and physical fitness.

Today, my focus is more on reaching out to educate and assist individuals with their nutrition and eating habits. With all the hype and myths of these diets, “diet fads” and quick weight loss through surgery/body modification, and exercising trends, I realize more and more folks are failing at reaching their goals and/or maintaining them and NOT understanding why. It is of the most importance to me, my mission, to change that. I am an Independent distributor of a nutritional supplement company that shares the same goals, values and mission as I do. Together, along with many others, we are making a difference in people's lives nutritionally, physically, and financially every day.

Being here at Wealthy Affiliate, I'm hoping that I can accomplish these goals by attaining the skills and tools necessary to reach out to more and more people that are looking for assistance and education of making nutrition, health, and fitness a lifestyle rather than a "fad". And while I'm at it, looking forward to sharing and showing as many as I can how they too can make a difference in their lives by owning and operating their very own online business and becoming successful with it!

Give me a shout out in the forum and if you want, add me to your buddy list and I'll do the same. I truly look forward to meeting and working with you! Together, we can ROCK this!

Wishing much prosperity!

Superb goals Latrice! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

Latrice, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Latrice.

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 a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Latrice, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Thank you Kyle. I have a few ideas for niches just need to try to figure out which one to go after first. I will keep in touch and lean on you for advice. Thank you for the warm welcome!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Always a good problem to have, too many niche ideas. You will just need to choose one!

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. :)

Thank you, Kyle, for that tip. I took your advice and narrowed down my first niche and ready to move forward!
