Hello Mathew,

Thanks for the following! I'm glad to follow back.

Admirable profile! I play the keyboards and a little base guitar too! :)

Mostly like what's trending now with electronically produced musical scores and instrumentals!

I wish you all the best of success in your journey here. Have an excellent day!

Best regards,

~Linda

Keyboard is not something I have tried to tackle, and always have respect for those that do. I started playing bass in middle school (MANY moons ago) because no one else wanted to. It has since become my passion (musically), and the funny thing is, out of all the people from way back then, I am the only one still playing! :-)

Wishing you all the best success as well!!

Hi, MAdkins. Nice to meet you. I enjoyed reading your profile. I am a musician as well. Was a percussionist in school. Started snare lessons in 5th grade, played in Jr. High and high school band, and one semester in college orchestra. Really enjoyed tympani, but the bells not so much!

I haven't held a drumstick in 50 years, but I get my musical fix singing alto in my church choir and the community chorus now.

Welcome to WA and to my network. Thanks for following me back. If you have any difficulties as you go through the training and build your website, don't hesitate to ask the community for help. There's always someone in our awesome community who knows the answer and will be happy to help. Best wishes for your online success. Carol

Hi Matthew,

Pleasure to meet you. Memphis isn't very far from where I live, Brandon, MS. I've been to Memphis a few times but not in the last few years, other flying in and out of the airport.

Looks like we joined WA around the same time and you're on course for finding that better way. There has never been a better time to do it than now!

To Your Success!

Steve

I believe this is the right place for success, so much help in every direction! I've been a part of other "success" programs, but they all ended up more competing against each other than helping. I haven't seen any of that here. Glad to be here and much success to you!

Hey :-)

Welcome to WA! Best choice ever!
Going back to school will make WA seem like a breeze to you. Maybe even easier.

When I was in college, I didn't have the mindset to be there in the first place. In fact, writing essay papers as you will, I hated the most.

To look back then, to see me now is defiantly a transformation :-) I've written more in WA then I ever have in my college days.

We are going in the right direction with WA.

See you at the top ;-)

Hi Chrisie! I feel the same way about the writing, I'm in school online so writing papers every week has been a drag. At first when I saw that this program was centered around writing, I almost walked away. This has actually been a lot of fun! I catch myself telling my friends, hey if you do any work around the house, send me a ton of pics - I'd love to write a blog about it!

Much success to you and we'll be at the top in no time!

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! :)

Hey Kyle,
I have no issues with the Niche. I have always spread myself out across many interests. Musician, electrician, construction, hunting/fishing, electronics (as in creating circuits), computer programming, cooking... I have plenty ideas as far as that goes.

One thing I was looking to do before finding WA was going to be an import business. Reading what that was going to take was so involved and expensive just to get my foot in the door and still not have any products in the US, I decided maybe that's not the route. With WA, I'll be able to connect customers with products from around the world... and without ANY of the hassles!

Well you can definitely move in the direction of import eventually, you will need some startups but importing could definitely be part of your business that you build out online.

You can head in any direction that you want with your niche. 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. :)
