About MelanieLee
Joined October 2016
Hi! I became a member of WA in Oct 2016. I've been looking for a way to create a supplemental income, and after much research I ended up here.

Like most of you, I need MORE MONEY, am tired of the rat race and not feeling in charge of my financial future. Hopefully I will be able to utilize the enormous amount of support and training on WA to develop something fairly lucrative over time.

I'm from Central NY, and moved to NC two years ago. I studied Visual Arts in college, then immersed myself in motherhood for many years so I never truly established an art career. I'm almost 50 years old now (yikes!), a mother of three adult children, a nature lover, bird watcher, artist, avid reader, and daydreamer.

Feel free to say hello and I look forward to reading your success stories (and writing my own one day)!!

Money Goals
Oh wow, financial goals. OK!
I'd be HAPPY (paying all my bills with surplus to enjoy some extras) making 2K-3K/month.
I'd be completely ECSTATIC earning anything over 4K/month.
I can invest several hours/day 3 days each week - about 20-30 hours/week.

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! :)

Hi Kyle!

Yes, finding a niche is proving to be difficult! Not because I don't understand what a niche is.
How do I choose a niche if I'm not really an expert on any one thing? Of course, I have interests & some know-how about a number of things but how will I develop enough content to keep going over months & beyond?
Can I just research & learn along the way? If it's something I'm passionate about, I could do that! Can I present myself that way on my blog (as a non-expert who's passionate to learn about the topic)?

- I have MS, & other health issues so I'm interested in many health remedies. I've done some study on the autoimmune paleo diet & have started it recently.
Other things that me be a niche that I really enjoy:
- spirituality (not religion)
- stress/anger/anxiety management
- meditation / breathwork
- practicing mindfulness / staying present
- natural remedies for health / alternative health
- practicing gratitude
- nature, walking in nature, the spirituality of nature
- birdwatching / bird journaling
- essential oils / aromatherapy
- energy healing / reiki (I've had training to practice reiki)
- art, drawing, painting (I went to college for Visual Arts eons ago)

I'm SO SORRY this is SO long & I appreciate it immensely if you can shed any light or advise me on the decision!

Thank you & hope you're having an extraordinary day!

As you know, Paleo is really big and has been for a while. You will probably need to get into one of the very small areas of it to make an impression. Just my 2 cents.

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

Nice meeting you Melanie and thank you for following me back. I am a newbie also. I am not savvy when it comes to technology but you said it right, I want an income also I am 60 years old a grandma of three. I just made a blog about my mature skin as I obviously am. I am pretty sure you can do more in your website because you have a lot of subject there as a lover of nature. WA has given us a lot of tools that we can utilize when we're up to doing it. I wish you all the best.

No problem Leonila! We'll be newbies together! >:-D
No technically savvy here - I wonder more about the ability I have to write, write, write content about something that I'm not an expert on. I'm deciding on a niche but like I just said, I don't feel I'm any kind of "expert" on anything. I guess I will plunge forward anyway & become more of an expert through research as I begin writing content! There are A LOT of tools here on WA - it's a great site from what I can see!! All the best to you & feel free to keep in touch about whatever!!

Thanks so much for the welcome, Louisa! I have not chosen a niche. This is all very new to me but I am excellent at following advice & instruction so feel free to help me on this! You're much appreciated. This is so surreal to me to think I can have my own business & potential to be successful.
