Choosing a NICHE (the main topic of your website and your target audience) is the first genuine hurdle in the OEC training.Some newbies struggle to understand the concept of a niche and what it entails. Some also find it extremely difficult to choose a niche and narrow it down, and I don't blame them. Choosing a niche can lead to information overload.

My WA journey started 4 years ago. I can still remember the first time I signed up and started the training.I was so excited and glued to my computer for the first week. I just knew from the get-go I'm going to learn a lot on this platform and I did.For the first couple of months, I was "WA crazy", but I also had a 9 to 5 job. Juggling my time was tricky, but I never gave up.About a year into my WA journey, I lost my job. I managed to stay afloat from what I learned here at WA.Today, I'm still

I'm a big GeneratePress fan and in my opinion, consider it as one of the best WordPress themes, especially for a typical blog website. Don't get me wrong; I also use it to create small business websites for a few local clients and 2 of my friends. It works very well with Elementor to create attractive landing pages.I notice so many members asking about themes and battling to find the perfect theme. A perfect theme for me might not be an ideal theme for you, but I would like to share my Generat
