P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my website on sleep apnea. You can find the link on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)

Hey Vince......thanks for the invitation to check out WA...There are a lot of friendly folks here and it appears to be genuine. I am still in trial mode, but I do forsee going premium.
I have in the past tried many a venture, and I mean a lot. And I'm hoping that everything goes as I'm envisioning.
I look forward to this every time I have a chance to go online.
Thanks again Vince.

Hey Steve, just dropping by here. I did notice that you set up your profile.

Good thing you did. The reality is, those who actually take action (even if it's as little as setting up your profile fully) tend to succeed much more than those who don't.

You're on the right track!

Let me know if you have any questions :)

P.S. I really recommend going Premium if you haven't already. I've been Premium for over 2 years now and will always be. It's totally worth it and will just save you a lot of time, energy, and questions.

Take care!
