Past up some shiny objects this week. Even cancelled my reservations for a conference that I felt I was drowning vs enjoying. So glad I found WA.
I did attend a conference with a new company for my pleasure versus a niche.
I keep myself balanced. My day job is very emotionally taxing. So part of my pampering myself is something fun.

Happy Birthday and I wish you many more. You are welcome. I agree. I enjoy meeting new people and as a therapist I see new people, but can't become friends. WA gives me a different kind of outlet.

Sharon, nice to hear from you. It sounds like you were travelling when you past some shiny objects. Or have you passed up some that don't look very good!

Sorry I can't help myself so just pulling your leg a bit:-).

Look forward to reading you stuff later.

Work hard, have some fun and keep in touch.

HelenpDoyle,
Both. I was traveling and looking around, listened to a webinar and got sucked in. But I went to the bank and got all my money back.

Thanks for the encouragement.
As a therapist, we don't hear that very much. We are so busy helping others help themselves....

Until later,

Sharon

You are right about the encouragement bit. I don't believe in leaving good intentions or actions unnoticed.

I have a couple of friends on the mainland. She won $17,000 once. I was the only one they told about this. He said because I was the only one who would give her a pat on the back (and not cut her down with the 'Tall poppy syndrome'. A very typical cutting down reaction people have to successful people.)

That is so sad, but that i real, HelenpDoyle.

I just recalled what I tell my clients. 1/3 of the world are going to hate you no matter what you do, 1/3 of the world are going to love you no matter what and 1/3 of the world will never give a shit. Pick which 1/3 you want to hang with.

1/3 I want to hang with are individuals who care about others, celebrate life, have joy in the life, etc.

Thanks for the comments.

Hi Sharon,
Welcome to WA. I am new myself. I am here about six weeks.
I love the picture of you with the patriotic sweatshirt. It is something I would definitely wear.

I have learned a lot with the training in the short time I'm here. And, I also learned that I have a lot more training to do.

Thanks. Marcei,

I am feeling the warmth of the community as I go thru this journey. I will check out your site and most definitely check with you if I need some help. Thanks for volunteering.

If you would like to look at my site..still being worked on, and give me some suggestions, that would be wonderful. I have done a major overhaul on it since I started setting it up. Made the decision to just be an affiliate site for Amazon with the Ipads, Accessories, Books, and Apple Watch. Will expand as I go.

I have ranked on Google, but not getting any feedback, or inquiries, not sure what I am doing wrong.

Hello Sharon I just published a blog within WA on Shiny Object Syndrome.
You should read it.
Anyway welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined in June you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
There is plenty of scope for someone with your experience to make money on the internet and if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks, Robert I well most definitely check out your blogs. Thanks for the offer as well, if I get stuck. I agree it is a huge learning curve, but that doesn't bother me. I need to stop listening to the outside scammers.

Thanks for the follow.

Hi again Sharon 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.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks for the follow. Yes, I decided to pass up those 'shiny pennies' as well. So glad to have found Wealthy Affiliate.

All I can say is be willing to learn via the Wealthy Affiliate training course. Each lesson provides the steps you need and I am sure, you will amaze yourself as you build and monetize your website.

If you have any questions, just ask the community. There are many who are willing to help you. This is a very supportive community. And I am here to help you, as well.

Wishing you all the best in your success. - MyraBeth

Thanks, MyraBeth.

So far so good, even though sometimes I get stuck. I have been looking at other blogs and websites and learning from them as well.

I will ask the community as well. I haven't figured out when to ask for support or ask community.

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! :)

Sdaviscs1250 Premium
Thanks, Affiliacoach,

As a matter of fact, I am having a little struggle with the niche. I guess advertising WA, but I started thinking only being a store front for Amazon (with ipads, accessories, books dealing with computer, network marketing issues, etc and Apple Watches) I did some research and found articles about different ways Ipads are being utilized in various educational tracks. Found even articles about Autism and Ipads are helping them learn. But I keep having a knawing feeling this is not going to fulfill what I want to do,
Being a therapist (LCSW) I have a lot of skills with individuals, I want to utilize what I can in the online world. I also know I can't legally do any major therapy online...unethical and my license only covers TN. I thought about Divorce Recovery, Parenting Issues, Grief Recovery, Anger Management, Coaching ADHD/ADD Adults, Empty Nest Issues. I figured if individuals need more in-depth counseling I would help them find a therapist in their local area.
I also have a huge heart for working with the Military Families (cuz I am one) But I haven't figured out what track to go down. I know our deployments are really negatively affecting them. Funds are so low for soldiers and in my area, not much in the way of therapists knowledgeable of how to work with military family issues or the desire to learn.
So....I am a little stuck.

In the past, I used to be an affiliate selling informational products relating to overcoming depression. There's lots of these types of affiliate programs online and it can not only help a lot of people, but be very lucrative given your background.

I also used to be an affiliate selling "Parenting For Autistic Kids" ebook which is a book designed to help parents deal with issues relating to their child.

So there is a lot of scope in the area of your expertise if you want to go down that track.

I developed an exercise that might help you to clarify the direction of your niche.

Be sure to do all four exercises.

Here's the link.

Let me know if you have any questions / feedback on the exercise.

Hope that helps. :)

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Good evening everyone. Working on getting my training done, hope to get my website up. I have 2 niches I want to work with. Maybe I can get some feedback to help me decide between the 2.
I recently signed on a direct sales company, which is a new company for United States. I love the products, woman can never have enough, so I feel like it would be a good balance from my regular job as a therapist. I would like to be able to reach others who have the desire to belong to the direct sales company, love jewelry and would like to make extra money.
My other niche would be to put together a shopify store.
I had previously talked bout doing a webinar or a hangout to be helping provide support for families of the military who need support and resources. I think right now that niche would be to close to what I do all day.

The previous 2 would be fun.

Please give me feedback on what I would like to do for a niche.
If you have experiences with either of the first 2 niches, please share. (positive or negative)

Thanks for the feedback,
Sharon

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites.

Welcome, Sharon. In answer to your question ",what have I learned since arriving WA."

Do NOT follow shiny objects (you already covered that)
FOLLOW the plan Kyle and Carlson have so carefully laid out
Do a "little" something each day, no matter how small do SOMETHING in WA..........did I say to do something in WA every day?
Do NOT worry about Niche's, or technical "stuff." All in due time and 90% is done for you by WA.
Do NOT worry about not finding answers to ALL questions - they are ALL here or within our community
Do NOT fear failure; it is NOT possible if you follow the yellow brick road.

And the person behind the curtain a the end of the yellow brick road.....................will be YOU!

This is a FUN ride like no other you will ever experience, so jump on board with the rest of us and HAVE FUN!

All the best and again Welcome!

Steve

Hi Sharon,

Just touching base with you for the last time before communication is no longer available in the WA community (which happens the day after tomorrow).

So if you have any last minute questions, or you need a helping hand with anything, please feel free to ask.

Also, I just wanted to mention that I have made my special bonus available to all of my referrals (upon upgrading) regardless of when you upgrade.

Which means, your bonus will be sent to you whenever you're ready to upgrade.

I look forward to your success. :)

Best,

Hey Sharon,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Sharon and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Hey what's up Sharon,

When you joined Wealthy Affiliate I mentioned that if you upgraded to premium within the first 7 days that you'd receive my special bonus.

I just wanted to let you know that I have extended the time so that you'll still have access to the special bonus, when if you upgrade within the next 6 days.

Anyway, I hope all is going well for you.

Let me know if you need anything.

I look forward to your success.

Hey Sharon, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing.

I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Welcome Sharon, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
