About Richrivera
Joined February 2016
I'm the father of 2 and grandpa of 5, been married 43 yrs. Was a carpenter bytrade til I had back issues and need a business of my own, don't like a boss and want something that grows. My hobbies are woodcarving( walking sticks), songwriting, singing, guitar playing and and spending time with two grand boys before they grow up. Love to learn and create. I see a lot here to learn.

Very Greatful.

Well, here I am 3 wks in and still figuring out navigation but I've learned a grip of stuff about my pc. Even more so from fellow WA's. I value this community and everybody in it. So, fortunate to have run across a member who pointed the way. I'm grateful today, a tad behind but very grateful. Thanks everyone

I'm Having a Lot of Fun!
.
Hey all, I hope everyone is doing well. I'm having a lot of fun, learning loads of information on a variety of subjects. It's been 44 days and I have a site up but am filling in content and doing a whole lot of research. When I can't go on without blowing a cork, I read and respond to e-mails or look over something that I need to learn. I got to say, with out the help from all of you, I'd be lost most of the time. Now, it's just some of the time.

I Know Better.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one having a tough time but I know better by the questions being asked. After my last rant, I promised myself, I wouldn't complain again. It's nonproductive and gives others a foothold to go in that direction. Instead, when I hit the wall, I identify what I don't understand and find a training video on the subject. Watch it til I puke or understand it. Then go back and start again. It can be slow going but better than, not knowing. I bid you all a productive week and see you around the streets of, Cyber City.

Hey Richard! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Yeh Kyle, I love to walk, it's like meditation and I'm just blank. Takes the stress right out of me. So that's my niche and I'm sticking to it. Unless of course you advise against it for some reason. I didn't know if I should wait until I go premium so I have full resources. So I'm going to do a gang of research beginning when man first got off of all fours and try to put a little different spin on it, then compare when I figure out how and check Googles traffic out on the subject.My domain name; Walk 4less stress, walkthisway, walkforlife,walkyourcaresaway. something like that.
I had my hip replaced in august and I gained 22lbs so the timing is just right. Oh, national walking day is the 1st wed. of april. If you have got some ideas, I'd love to hear them Thanks Kyle

Sure, make that your niche then. The thing about the Internet is that there are 3 BILLION people online, so any niche is a very popular one.

I like your concepts for domains, I would avoid using a "4" in your domain, but I do like all the others with the "walkthisway" and the "walkforlife" being the most brandable.

Awesome niche Richard and it is always best to work within a space that you are passionate/interested in and this sounds exactly like that.

Hi there. I am happy you found me. I am newbie myself. I have learned a lot here. Now my website is half finished I must publish posts right away just to experience how it is to acquire traffic. When I am not busy I lose myself inside WA community. I am enjoying so much. Hope you do also. Ciao..

Yeh John,
Andygibby was the author of the training lessons but I went back and
couldn't find it. I guess I've seen a bunch of stuff and got mixed up.
I'm pretty sure Steve ' I"VETRIEDTHAT" has that info and I'll ask him and get back to you. A good way to evaluate a niche, I think.
Thanks, John

Hey Richard and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Richard, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!

Hi Steve, I'm not familiar with social media, when some one follows you, what's appropriate? Man you weren't kidding when you said a new person can be overwhelmed. I love to learn so I guess I won't be disappointed. I should thank Ultimate Home Products for leading me to your site and thank you for being there for me. I'll be making some navigational mistakes I'm sure, but I see every question I've had is already answered. thanks again. Rich

It's up to you who you want to follow here. I usually reserve my follows for people I find interesting and that post interesting and relevant content. The Follow system basically lets you filter out some of the noise.

Thanks Steve, I kind of figured that was the case but wasn't sure.I'll be asking next time I have a Derrrr moment. Was also wondering, an appropriate response to a follower. Is it a must? I know its the polite thing to do but how to do thirty at a time? I've taken your lead and come up with 5 top niches;woodcarving, songwriting,walking, geneology and carpentry(love remodels). Still deciding which ranks #1. Oh,Steve I just had to order new bank card to avoid being cleaned out. 7 to 10 days. Can I load a money card to upgrade if it doesn't look like I'll get the other in time to save 20 bucks. I'm going to watch
Andygiffy's #2 video on web building and build a web later today.
I'll probably be asking somthing. Until then, thanks. Rich

I'm not sure if a reloadable card will be accepted by the system. You would have to ask Kyle for the specifics. I can make sure you get the $19 offer though even after it expires if you are unable to upgrade before time is up.

As for responses, I really wouldn't worry too much if you miss them. Don't get caught up in all the menial tasks around WA. Focus on the training and building out your website. That's what is important!

Thanks Steve, Sound advice, I'll take it. I did ask Kyle about card. If a debit card won't cut it either, I'll get a credit card. Haven't had one since 2008 when my construction & remodeling business had to go, but I can do that. I saw mention of somewhere to research my niche but can't find it. Can give a heads up please, thanks.
