About MBratton1
Joined July 2017
Spent the past years working at a computer all day for others but have worked from home since end of 2012 when moved temporarily to Spain. Now back in UK and still working from home for the same company while keeping an eye on the future retirement age when I will continue working but solely for myself.

Time to expand my horizons I believe.

Feeling slightly frustrated at the moment as eager to continue with my Certification course but full time employment is full on at the moment and I'm not moving forward as quickly as I would like to. It's like a juggling act trying to do both jobs, run a house and see the family. But I will get there - maybe I should think like the tortoise and the hare!

Is OK. You should know, "slow and steady wins the race". Just keep on doing as per your own convenience. That is the beauty of online work. However, it only takes little more time if you progress slowly, but that doesn't mean you can't succeed.

Hi Marion, I would appreciate if you could please follow me back. I am intrigued about what sort of computer work you are doing and by the fact that you went back to England for health reason (I just came across your thread with Christy when responding to her profile message) Normally I hear people leaving England for health reasons seeking warmer climate.
Keep in touch please, thank you.
We are from Melbourne, Australia.

Cheers

Hi, not sure what happened to the rest of my reply to you! I did explain in a bit more detail but it only shows me saying "it is not that interesting". Weird! It is basically checking, correcting and uploading data on behalf of a large company. Need to get myself set up to work for myself now.

Best you could do Marion...just make sure that you will build enough of passive income before you quit 9-5 job. Even better having multiply streams of income as not all money sources will survive. Demand on things and peoples likings may change quite rapidly.
Which part of UK do you live in. I visited UK few times in the past. We live in Melbourne, Australia.
Do you have an idea of the niche you would like to develop?
Cheers

Oh I definitely won't give up the 9-5 job yet! I'm heading towards the 'retirement' age although there is no way I can do that for a good few years yet.
I live in the South East of UK about 35 miles from London. I'm still not sure on what niche to develop but am thinking that perhaps health/fitness/beauty or the other extreme is dog related as I love animals. But I'm always open to suggestions.

How about you, what niche are you interested in?

Marion

Splendid Marion, all above topics are excellent as a niche, high demand for the information in all this areas but also stiff competition. So I guess we have to be unique providing something extra, something different. My niche is health/fitness/beauty and I found something very special. I will PM you shortly.
By the way I have been several times in UK and in London.
Cheers

I'm happy that you are enjoying your journey here. However, sometime people get confused and frustrated when they don't get results quickly. So, in order to guide you from my side, you can let me check your website anytime so that I can give you suggestion to improve your website and you can be successful from here more soon.
Anyway, main thing is to write more contents by targeting different keywords. So, whichever niche you have picked up, just keep on writing more contents on that niche, as many as you can. You can also search in Google and find other websites related with your niche and take ideas from there to write more contents, but never copy paste anything from any other website. Sometimes even you can write same content, but in different language and by targeting different keyword. For example, if you write review on one product, next content you can write on that product by saying the benefits of that product, or the comparison of that product with other products and so on.
Good Luck!

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! :)

MBratton1 Premium
Thank you for your message and kind words. It did make me smile when you menioned "what is my niche". I spent yesterday with all sorts of ideas buzzing around in my head and I know what you mean about how confusing it is!

Anyway I have picked one for now so that I can get on with my website. I'm not a newcomer to websites and/or blogs as I have had several over the years but never one solely as a business.

I think I may have named it too broadly (everything rather than a specific part of my interest) but this is my learning period and hopefully I will learn as I go along.

I've also got so much yet to learn!

Once again, thanks for your offer of help and I hope all is going well for you. I realise I only have a few days left to decide regarding going premium so I have to find my way around everything to make the decision!

Congratulation for going to premium.
Sorry for late reply. I was busy with my family.
I'm happy that you finalize the niche. However, you can still show me your work progress, means your website if you want some suggestion from my side to improve your website.
Remember, any niche you pick up, main thing is the amount of content you can write on that niche. Actually every niche is profitable, what matters is the amount of contents you can write on that niche. So, instead of thinking which niche is profitable, think in which niche you can write many contents by targeting several different keywords, because more contents you can write by targeting different keywords, you gonna have more traffic to your website and then more conversions, sales or even profit form advertisements within your website by applying with services like Google Adsense.
And remember, I'm always ready to help and support you. You can always feel free to ask me if you need any help from my side within Wealthy Affiliate. Even you can follow me and message me in Facebook if you need my urgent help. This is my Facebook ID:- https://www.facebook.com/rajde029

Thanks you for your advice - it is much appreciated. I had wanted to work on this a lot more than I have managed this weekend but unexpected family guests are taking up my time.
Still it is not a race and I can get back to it during the week.
Have sent a request on your Facebook page so that you can see who I am!

I will come back to you should I have any problems.

Thanks again.

Yep, it is not a race. It is better you take your time and keep on moving by understanding everything as per your own convenience.
Yep, I find your friend request and already accepted you there. If sometime I don't reply you here on time when you need urgent help, then you can just send me message in my FB.
Good Luck!
