Hi ....my name is Allan and I'm now retired but still need to keep some money rolling in which is why I joined WA after trying quite a few other on line businesses that somehow never delivered the goods....but being an optimist keeps me forever hopeful.

I was a professional musician for many years from aged 16 and played drums originally in the UK then traveled the world as a free lance player and then settled in Sydney Australia where I was active in the jazz scene and recording studios.

Eventually I opened a music store which went well for 13 years but a nasty disease got me and put me and the business out of action for a while (all ok now) and I then tried a few new ways to earn a living....real estate, mortgage broker etc but eventually decided that I needed a simple uncomplicated life and started a service for florists delivering their orders which I did until last year when my wife, Lesley decided that we should retire to the lovely Central Coast region of NSW about 80ks north of Sydney.

As it turned out I was the only one retiring as Lesley decided to keep working for a while!

But that's ok as I love living here in Woy Woy ( a town so nice they named it twice)....I do an hour or so practice on the drums every day so my chops are the best they have ever been....all I need now is for someone to offer me a gig! (Never gonna happen).

I have 2 grown up kids from my first marriage and 6 grandchildren - the 2 oldest recently married (no not to each other) so I guess I can look forward to being a great granddad sometime soon.

Excellent Allan, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve ?full time? status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Allan! :)

Hi Kyle....thanks for the follow - I'm wading through Getting Started - up to Build My Website now but have paused to think about a niche product....I was thing about a book review site (crime fiction) but looking at the price of books on line I would have to sell an awful lot of books to make it work.

Have been looking at Clickbank and there are several products there that could suit me including music production software and drum beat software, commissions are in the $30 to $40 range and they are fairly high on the Clickbank rankings - I'm assuming I can use products from Clickbank....what do you think of this as a niche? .....Allan

Yeah, the book niche is tough to crack if you are just selling books, but books could be "part" of the products you promote in a particular niche.

Choose something that you are interested in Allan, it will make things that much easier going forward and if you ever want to run any niche ideas by me, do so and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Great to have you here at WA! :)

Awesome. You're going through the training which means you're on the right path.

As for your niche...

I think music production software is a good idea. I would say, check out the competition/bloggers in the niche and see what kind of stuff they're doing with it, to get an idea.
