Hi,

I'm wanting to jump into the rest of the training, so I'll update this later.
My background is as a Certififed Public Accountant and a Real Estate Broker that specializes in rural properties, farms and ranches. I live in Colorado. I've spent the last year trying to get my small, diversified ranch up and running. I have cows, sows, pigs, horses and lots of chickens. Oh yeah, I also have a few sheep, two cats, and a dog. I experimented with goats but need to work out better housing before I bring more home.

The goal of my cows, sows and the other chics is to produce the best tasting food possible. I'm doing this via more old fashioned, natural ways of ranching.

I'm wanting to build a website/websites that will be educational, maybe entertaining and that will provide a ways to market my animals and products. Thus, I found the Wealthy Affiliate website. Since it takes a long time for the the cows, sows and other chicks to get pregnant, have their babies, and then for the babies to grow to a marketable age, I was thinking affiliate marketing of products that would appeal to my target customer base would be beneficial.

I'm also thinking that working from the ranch on online stuff would be beneficial because I can run outside to take care of any problems if necessary. Like today, my neighbors told me that my 400 pound sows decided to walk about half a mile down my driveway and head out onto the road since I left the gate open....Had I been home, I would have been able to call them back long before they headed out the gate. At least my neighbors know that I have pigs now.

So, I'm heading off to training.

Hi Sondra,

Thank your for the follow.

I like your bio and I'm envious of your lifestyle. I live in an humble apartment where the most agriculture I have is a worm bin and few 5 gallon buckets where I try growing different things. I live in a cold area, So my Kale tends to stay alive. I digress.

Thanks again for the follow.

See you around,
Kyle

Good to meet you Sondra and wow what an opportunity you have based on your profile...HUGE potential....

Your background makes this online marketing and affiliate marketing, in particular, a viable option to sell not only others' products but your own...

There are so many ways to attack the opportunity...I think you could easily market several angles...In Germany, we buy our beef local and also the pigs...Farms that do not use pesticides nor other artificial stuff that you find in supermarket foods often...

The setting (farm) alone that you describe can lead you into other niches such a minimal living, free range animals (as you say in your profile, some of your animals are REALLY free ranging hehe), organic gardening, natural farming, permaculture, etc...

Best of luck as you proceed, I look forward to reading here the directions you take and how they go for you...

Cheers!
Dave : )

My aspirations are to teach and learn a Functional Health Model of Wellness and share the same with as many as possible. We should be our own best Doctors.

Happy to help out a fellow countryside lover.
I still miss it even though I've been a 'Townie' for 12 years.
But I live on the outskirts of Edinburgh now but still close enough to get on my bike and ride the country roads.
You get stuck even after reading my blogs then you send me a PM.

Hi Sondra it's nice to meet you. Yes the dark bay horse is an Arabian and the sorrow color is his mother. She is half Quarter and half Arabian. I was raised on animals and all natural foods. If I had more land I would raise my meats too. My paint mare is do to have her foal in the first week of May. Thank you for the follow and I am following you back. Keep in touch. All the best to you.

Hi Sondra,

Well it certainly sounds like you have your hands full with all those animals. I actually thought you were going to say that you are a vet.

If you need any help, get my friend Chris Scott to give you a hand.
He is a wiz at this stuff in WA.

I wish you lots of success.

Thanks! I can't handle shots or blood too well, so being a vet was ruled out. Lol.
Lots of success to you also.

You and I have that in common.
It actually runs in my family.....my dad, my son and I all have trouble visiting people in hospitals, etc.

Greetings Sondra!!!

Your farm sounds absolutely delightful, I'm sure every day brings a new adventure. Pigs seem to get a bad rep, but I think they are the cutest things, especially piglets!

I have no doubt that you'll approach the training here, with the same vigor and enthusiasm you give to the care of your farm and animals.

All the best moving forward Sondra!

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! :)

Thanks Alex. Staying focused on one thing (niche) is a challenge for me in general. I have a ton of ideas. I think I'm going to start with one niche that will probably have the highest potential to generate some profit in the short run.
