About ThomasJohns1
Joined February 2018
My name is Thomas Johnson, I live in South Jersey just across the bridges from Philadelphia, PA. Married 52 years to my bride Diane; we have one daughter (Deanna) and 3 grandchildren (Deonte, Danaus, Dior), they live in PA. I spent 37 years in healthcare in Support Management in Hospital Administration positions in Hospital in NC, DE, NJ, and NJ. Retired from Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA as Director of Perioperative Administration in June 2014. (Managed Implants Inventory, OR attendants, Room turnovers, Room scheduling, Environmental Control, OR Supplies, OR Scheduling).

I saw online marking as a way to supplement my retirement and tried, back in the early 2000’s, to get in the right online marketing business to earn a healthy income. I have been unsuccessful with online marking, lost thousands of dollars with online companies that were out for the money, one company I invested heavily into overnight went out of business, many others claiming to educate on how to make money online only to get pdf downloads and videos with little substance and up selling worthless products into thousands of dollars.

I came across Wealthy Affiliates through an annoying popup of a guy making a muscle. After further investigating and the email I got from Steve Razinski I felt I found something real that might work. I like the theme, approach to education, website materials, and low startup cost. I’m starting to appreciate community engagement. I think I’ve found the right vehicle for my journey in my retirement years.

So awesome Thomas, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Thank you Thomas for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Just finished acquiring niche affiliates in Lesson 3. Some updating needs to be done. There is a revised way of getting images and text from Ammazon.com. I spent 2 hours trying to figure out the codes and links and was getting nowhere. I decided to ask for help on our network and within 10 minutes my new found teach Tony @ Gunnertwist sent me to a WA video he had made. The networks! thanks again Gunnertwist.
I am waiting to get approval from two relevant niche affiliates so I can add them to my websites and complete Lesson 3.

Hey Thomas! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

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 Thomas and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Thomas, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Once you setup your profile, reply to this message and I'll send you my 10 Hottest Business Ideas for 2017. They'll really help you get moving quickly here!
