About Rekloose
Joined March 2017
I have been a starter my entire 30-year career. From radio and television stations, to non-profit corporations, I have always found myself at the beginning of things.

Although this might sound intriguing (and it was) it did not pay very well. Most of the time, once an organization, a company, or a course was established, I would find myself detached, and I would move on to something else.

I never made a decision to do this, It just unfolded that way.

I was involved in e-commerce, and started a web-based company in 1998, but it took a lot of people, moving parts, and of course, time. It was never very profitable, and some of my key people lost interest, so we shut it down.

I have been on the sidelines ever since, just watching trends and wondering if it were even possible to earn a living online. I have a lot of life experience in many fields, and I think it is time to turn that into something useful and and hopefully profitable.

In my dealings and interactions with people, I have lived by a couple of principles that have worked for me. I think that these may be of some benefit to others as well.

I enjoy music, nature, science, philosophy, and art.

Hey Rekloose, great name be the way. I am opposite of you. I would find myself in areas where the company's life cycle was on the down side of the graphic mountain. One company even closed its doors while I was still there. There were plenty of indicators, so it was not a surprise. I agree, that start ups do not make much money. They tend to burn through funding. It is not until it goes through its first "contraction" where we finally see the company actually make a profit. Unfortunately, for many of the people who sacrificed to get it there, simply are no longer around to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

I certainly hope that your new company here at WA proves to be very profitable for you.

Thanks Rangertony. This community really does get the old startup juices flowing!

What an amazing first day. I've got my first website up and I am really excited about developing it further with my training!

I honestly don't think I can fail. I have NEVER had this much positive affirmation and encouragement on a business startup!

No probs David and there are a lot of them.
The blog you mention - was it my latest? One Tip

It’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

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! :)

Rekloose Premium
I may be moving a little fast, but when I found my niche, I knew with your help I could be ranked #1.

juicingonabudget.com is my registered domain, and I already have an affiliate e-book that I can get a 75% commission on through clickbank! (Not to mention juicers). I am so amped up that I forgot to eat!

Anyway, I'm really excited about helping people get healthy, and I have a lot of first-hand experience on where to get cheap ingredients. But for now, I want to finish all the courses.

So awesome David, sounds like you are making leaps and bounds progress. One thing that you should always keep on the forefront of your focus is the fact that you need an audience to sell your book or any other affiliate products for that matter. :)

Keep me updated with your progress moving forward. ;)
