I am a 43 year old male looking to work at home. I currently am an officer but off on workman's comp with 2 shoulder surgeries so far. I have a 4 year old boy my wife and I tried to have for 18 years. After giving up she got pregnant and we now cherish our family and our gift from God. I'm really want this to work and stay home and work on my own terms. Let me know is this just a dream because I really want it and ifmit works my wife will follow suit.

Greetings, Mark, and thanks for adding me to your network.

I've read quite a few stories on this platform of people who are home due to an injury on the job or an illness. This is your personal experience, so perhaps that could be your target audience.

Hi MarkThomas1!

A little over 4 years ago, I believe, I stumbled onto WA, after being on the internet 2 years prior to that looking for a legitimate business...And I wanted it for free! WA had everything I wanted!

I did not do anything with it at that time because things became complicated in my life!

Then 2 days ago I came back! And guess what? WA is still here...and still offering all the great services! WA is real! Does it work? That will be up to you! If you type into Google wealthy affiliate you will be amazed at what comes back at you! Disregard the word scam because when you click on it.... I have not found one that says WA is a scam! In fact, it is always a positive article!

WA has your back. Kyle, Carson and the whole community really cares for your success!

So I hope this puts your fears to rest.

It's work. But it is worth it.

Best of luck! And if you and your wife do it together..that would be awesome!

Thank you for the follow!!!

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! :)
MarkThoms1 Premium
I started with Caribbean Cruises not sure if it is a good one or too broad I'm having a hard time but I started one now caribbeancruiseinformer.com does the start look good as far as color and theme. Any recommendations before I really dive into it
Kyle Premium
I like it, definitely not too broad and something that I was actually research a few years back when I went on a cruise to the caribbean. Definitely a lot of interest there and a lot of need for some focused authorities within that space.
MarkThoms1 Premium
Can you look at my first couple pages and tell me if I'm on the right track and any suggestions........Please caribbeancruiseinformer.com
Kyle Premium
So far so good with your content. Off and running here. One thing that I saw is that you shouldn't link to pages that don't exist:


You were linking to that page from your home page. I would avoid doing that, only link to pages that already exist. If you were planning on building this website out soon, that is fine.

Target keywords within every page or post.

Each page or post on your website should have a keyword focal point. Keywords are what lead to rankings and what lead to traffic. So when you are looking to come up with an idea for a new post, do some keyword research and find a phrase that is related to your niche.

As you build out your content and start getting rankings under these terms, you will see your traffic (and revenue) cumulatively grow. Just know that not every page will rank, but over time a good percentage will. The game of numbers!

If you ever want a website review from the community, I highly recommend that you take advantage of the SiteFeedback system here at Wealthy Affiliate.


This is a give and take system, meaning that as you offer others feedback on your website you are going to earn credits so you can request reviews from others. This is a pay it forward community afterall. :)

I think you'll be surprised at how many people (myself included) are here to help and make sure you get off on the right foot..

Now it's time to start your training. This is the foundation for building your online business.
