About Rangertony
Joined January 2017
Most of my career has been in the corporate world. This life has been good to me, but I have found that middle and executive management requires a lot of time, especially due to travel. I also found that my work/life balance was getting to be too much out of balance with life and family not receiving enough of my time.

I am a graduate of Purdue University from the early 1980's and an Army veteran. I tell people that I went to school at Purdue, but go my education in the Army. I enjoyed (or survived) such schools as Basic Training, Officer Candidate School, Infantry Officers Basic Course, Airborne and Ranger Schools. Most of my professional career has been in health care especially pharmaceutical, pharmacy, food and environmental services. Most of this was in the sub-specialty of Post Acute and Long Term Care markets.

As a soldier, I was stationed in Germany during the Cold War. I was actually in Germany when the "Wall" came down. I have worked in Germany for a conglomerate also in the healthcare industry. l speak German fluently. My older daughter is studying Medicine there and has worked there as a Mid Wife. I consider Germany to be my second home.

I have held positions from Industrial Engineer, Sales Professional, Manager and Director. My challenge is that while these professional positions are still in demand, I find myself wanting to start my own business. I am certainly humbled that my professional experiences may very well not translate well into the cyber space platform that is successfully being leveraged today. I look forward to getting to know this new business model (at least for myself) and want to thank all of you who will take the time to share your knowledge, understanding and wisdom with me and those like me.

I look forward to getting to know you soon.

Sincerely,
Tony

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! :)

Kyle, I am somewhat surprised that you can maintain your contact with me. I am very impressed. I have been in sales and marketing for many years and am familiar with niche even if I really don't know how to pronounce it.
My strength is in leadership and building teams. God has really blessed me with this ability and eventually I want for this to be a focal point of my business and branding. On the other hand, I wish to learn about how to make take this opportunity and turn it into a money generating business. For now, I feel that I need to pick a niche that easily translates into Amazon products. This includes, floor care and dining services. I have learned both through my career. Additionally, I am interested in soft toys especially teddy bears. In college we studied about Steiff which was the first to come up with the teddy bear. It was a marketing marvel that continues on today.
Any input that you have for my first niche would be greatly appreciated.

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. :)

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Tony. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, Tony! Thank you for your service, too! Wie geht es dir? I'm an American mutt but mostly German. My German is not fluent and is very rusty since I rarely use it. I did take German as an undergrad. Best success to you here. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Cheers, ~ t

Mir geht es Gut! Danke. It is amazing just how much German I have forgotten. I speak or text daily with my friends and family in Germany but they all speak English with me. When I get over there, it comes right back though. Thank you for the warm greeting.
