About Thedurf18
Joined May 2019
Hello, my name is Daniel. I am 27 years old. I live in Southern California. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from the University of California, Riverside in 2015. I'm passionate about: music, art, film, photography, and almost every thing else concerning the arts.

My goal is to build a website that teaches people the skills I have developed in music composition, music production, and sound design. Especially sound design, because I think my approach is "modern". I use a program called SuperCollider, which involves designing digital synthesizers entirely through computer programming. I would like to create a product that teaches people how to use this cool program, along with other useful skills.

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Welcome to WA Premium!

You have certainly come to the right place for establishing a business. There is, of course, a lot to learn, but this site takes you in small, measurable steps toward your goal.

You will learn how to make a wonderful Wordpress site, and how to monetize that site to earn you cash. You will learn about blogging so you can establish yourself as a true expert in whatever field you choose.

You will also find there is a welcoming family here to keep you motivated and keep you on the right track.

It does take time and effort, but as you will see, things, once they get started, will be unstoppable.

Dave.

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! :)

Things are going well, I think. :-)

The niche I have chosen is sound design/sound synthesis. Teaching people how to program a synthesizer, and help designing their own digital synthesizers through a cool program called SuperCollider.

Eventually, I'd like to branch out into film scoring/music composition, and music production. These ladder two are probably broad, so I'll narrow them down.

Tell me what you think about my niche ideas, Kyle! I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks. :-)

Sure, you can most definitely head in a direction like this. When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hi Daniel,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I will be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.
