Thank you for your interest to visit my profile here at Wealthy Affiliate.
Just joined the WA community early June 2017 and loving the fellowship, comradery and help from all WA members. Almost feels like Family again ?
ABOUT ME & MY GOALS
My name is Ray Williams, 43 yrs old. Recently separated from my beautiful loving wife whom I still love and care for deeply. Two wonderful children (boy & girl), whom I miss terribly.
I’ve been in Retail for almost 23 yrs and overlapping with IT the last 12. Always been looking for the right business opportunity to work Online and sure I found it within WA after many trials & tribulations. Still finding my feet but 100% sure this is where I want to be and going to make a success.
Always been a person that wants or have gone out my way to help others… sometimes even to my own detriment… but this is where I can even make an income from it instead of having nothing to show for it.
I have a “one-man-show” IT Support Company that is currently not profitable and going to work my “BEE-HIND” off to make THIS work!

Hello Ray,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

No worries Craige. I... we need all the help we can get and I am 100% sure that WA is the right place with the right community of the right people. Love the "Labs"! also MAJOR animal lover with the three Pitbull Terriers (common miss-concepted as the most vicious dogs on earth... I believe: If you bring your "children" up in the right environment, they will not be crminals... or killers). Love them to bits.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Ray? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

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, wow man. Every-one just wants to help and that is absolutely FANTASTIC! many Thanks. I sent the below message to Josh earlier (Thought you might be able to see it as it's not sent as Private... by no means to hide :-). Just found Josh as a kinda helping hand and very supportive. You are off course also VERY welcome to advise. Please.

Heya Josh. I'd like your advice on choosing the "best 1st" Niche. I've read through all the Training and watched all the videos and to me it boils down to finding the right one, for the right Group of People that... you can talk about for hours and even want to learn more of. YOUR most valuable input would be greatly appreciated as you've been "around the block a few times" and could guide me just a little better :-)
So the Niches I have in mind with the reasons why I could "talk about them for hours":
1. "Business Laptops for Professionals - 1. Lenovo ThinkPad 2. Dell 3. HP": I currently have my own one-man-show IT Support Company (check out the website that I even had to pay some-one for at the time. I absolutely love Lenovo Laptops.
2. "Online Remote Support for Home Users/Small Businesses": within my business I have to dial into some-one's PC at least 20 times a day and HELP them resolving any/all issues they have with a RDP program called TeamViewer (TV). Love the TV program as I have been using it for almost 7 years.
3. "Absolute Passion for Wild-Life, Conservation & Nature": Just a complete NUT when it comes to Africa (mostly Southern Africa and more so Swaziland, where I've lived since 2013).
4. "Great Outdoors - Trail Running, Hiking, Camping, Fishing": explained in #3
5. "Professional Hunting for conservation reasons": As 3 & 4 above, I am a certified Professional Hunter qualified to hunt the "big 5" - but ONLY completed the course because of my passion for conservation.
6. "Road Bicycling, Tennis, 8-ball Pool, Paintball" As I obtained National Colours in these as a young...ger man :-) Also love/prefer Mountain Biking now.

THAT my Friend is a BUNCH! and I can probably talk over any-one of these for days, but would also love to have more time to do more of the ones and earn GOOD MONEY promoting->selling them!

Lemmi know your thoughts & comments please.

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. :)

Hiya Josh. many thanks again. I am just waiting for month-end so I can apply for the Premium membership (Just hope I get paid before it expires :-( Anyhoo, Not had a chance to progress any further after Lesson 1, as Family time with my kids are important over weekends. Getting stuck in for a few late nights this coming week to progress as much/far as possible. Please let me know if I should reply here on WA or via e-mail rather - just let me know.

No problem Ray. Family time is important. Thats one of the reasons i was dedicated to making this work so I could spend more time with my 3 young kids rather than spending 60 hrs a week at work. Replying on WA is fine with me. Alternatively you can leave a commebt on my website..

Hey there Ray, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Josh and as promised on my website, I am here to help you get started building an online business. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, please do let me know.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). (This is how I got started 4 years ago. This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". The bright Green Button HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

As promised on my website I would like to invite you to join Premium within the first 7 days to unlock the bonuses: (Don't feel pressured into going premium immediately, unless you want to of course. Take your time and explore the vast opportunity here within Wealthy Affiliate. But make sure you update you profile and click on the green button to get started at the very least)

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Use my years experience to your advantage.
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Cheat Sheet To Success Bonus" - This is a list of the steps I take to making money quicker and easier following along with the WA training.

But only if you go premium in your first 7 days - this is what I call my "serious action takers" bonus which is not offered to just anyone. Show me you are serious and want the upper-hand on the competition by taking action ).

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Look Forward To Talking

Josh
