About RaphyAbano
Joined April 2015
Hi there, my name is Raphy. Very excited to be here!

Just a little bit of information about myself:

I consider myself a "jack of all trades, master of none". I am a graduate of multimedia arts, and so I take pride in knowing (and continuously learning) different things such as arts, technology, web, mobile apps, distance learning and so on.

It's because of this that I was able to evolve my career through many different industries - creative design, printing, game development, mobile app development, motion graphics, and E-learning. These fields may be different from each other but at the core, they all need a healthy balance of design and logic. I'm happy to say that in 11 years of working, I have been able to thrive in all these industries. :)

When I am not trying to make a living, I pursue interests such as exercising/going to the gym, sports (basketball, hockey, MMA, boxing, football, soccer), video games (I enjoy different types but I have always gravitated towards fighting games), music (I consider myself eclectic because I like to listen to different kinds of genres), and just chilling with my family - my wife and 2 kids. I also serve as a coordinator for a youth group, which is cool because it helps me stay young. :)

In the grand scheme of things, what I'm really looking forward to is the ability to have a business running on the side and hopefully use it to pay off bills, increase savings, and share it to other people who may need it more than I do.

That's about it. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!

Hi Carson,

It's going well so far, thanks. I'm currently on Lesson 7 for Course 1. I'm just wondering if I'm going in the right direction when it comes to my niche and if keyword search will have suitable results.

The niche I chose is men's basketball apparel - from there I'm thinking I could also search keywords like men's basketball shorts, or men's basketball jerseys, men's basketball warmers, or even men's basketball apparel on sale?

Thanks in advance for any tips!

Thanks Kyle! Yes it has been great so far, I've already figured out 2 niches that I want to write for (although for now, I'll be focusing on one).

In essence, I think that's why I turned to WA - I refused to believe that I could not turn my passion into a business, and I felt like there could be something out there that would teach me how to do. I'm glad I ended up here!

I'll definitely let you know if anything comes up!

You can definitely turn your passion/interest into a business, that is how almost all successful businesses have bene created. Follow passion and the money comes running after you, not the other way around.

I look forward to working with you and seeing your business take shape. :)
