About RichMH
Joined May 2016
Hello! My name is Rick. I live near Allentown, Pennsylvania and am between jobs at the moment...so have some time to focus on some ventures. I have always desired to be in control of my own business, in which it can grow and perhaps expand into many others. I haven't selected an exact Niche yet, but I am very creative and have a million ideas in my head that I may need help filtering. My current goal is to learn as much as possible and build a strong foundation for a side business that I will come to love. Once I am established, I desire to make this a full time profession. My personal objective is that whatever Niche I choose, it must have a positive impact on society and absolutely leave a legacy for others. I am super excited to get started and look forward to sharing life experiences with all of you!
RichMH's Goals 3
Money Goals
Once I am trained, set-up and my foundation is fortified, I'd be happy earning around $65K-$70K (My old salary).
(I am sure the first year will be much slower and therefore less $)

Be ecstatic earning over $100K within the first three years.

At the moment, I would be working at minimum full time, or more if needed, with the goal of remaining flexible enough to easily adapt to shortcomings and ensure success.

If I decide to pick up a full time position elsewhere, especially in the start-up phases here, my site will surely become my side-business with $ expectations to be considerably less than previously stated. Be happy with a realistic $2K-$4K supplemental income a month.

My goal is to live comfortably again and dispose of all debt. Anything extra I desire to share with my loved ones who are financially strained and have helped me in times of need. I also enjoy donating to animal, health, and global causes.

Love the approach you are taking here Rick, but you will be surprised at what can be done online. You will definitely accomplish these goals and it's great you have them setup as they will take you a long way. I look forward to seeing you achieve these goals!

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Rick! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

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 John. Thanks for the feedback. I love pets, more specifically dogs.I also have a master's degree in terrorism and emergency management (I was a police officer). After much research, it seemed pet health and safety has a lot of potential. I thought of a website title as "The Pet Preserver" with the intent of increasing pet health and safety awareness to prolong your pets life. I've thought about healthy dog food/ treats, doggles, life jackets, home hazards, harnesses, etc.. I also want to extend it towards emergency survival kits for pets in times of crisis or disaster. Hence..."The Pet Preserver"---prolonging pets lives via awareness of potential hazards they may face.
I initially had the idea of just doing dog survival kits, after studying hurricane katrina and seeing not only how many people were killed, but also how many dogs (well many animals of all kinds) were sacrificed, forgotten about, or forced abandoned with the deadly flooding.
What are your thoughts? I can specify to one thing but want to research what would have the best rankings.

Definitely specify on one thing, and then expand later if need be. In most cases, you can cover a very targeted niche and create content on it forever. I do like branding and "the pet preserver" sounds pretty good to me.

Welcome to the WA family Rick. If you need any help I have always found it asking the community really works well, everyone is willing to help. Good luck with your venture!

Helping people is one of the many reasons why I love this business so much. If you can help people, you will be successful online and that's the real "secret". Too many people come into things focused on just the money and then wonder why they aren't making any. You have the right mentality and I know you will do great here Rick!

Hey Rick, it's great to see you're already taking action. I know you're probably busy trying to learn more, but I just thought I'd check on you and see how things are going. Hope you're enjoying things so far!

What's up Rick and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track, as I know how it is to land somewhere without any direction.

You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people, who will help you along the way so that's something you can expect.

As a new member here, you want to put up a pic (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so that it can be easier for others to help you.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". We all started somewhere so don't feel alone. Take things one day at a time and everything will start to make sense.

Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and enjoy what your free membership has to offer.



- John
