About Upsales
Joined December 2016
It's 5:55 a. M. , as I sit here and write my description of me. I have been sitting here a while debating on how to describe myself. Perhaps my likes and dislikes would be the best. Maybe a list of my accomplishments and accolades is the way to go. Who am I after all? Truth is, if you want to know the truth about me; I must be truthful with you. I mentioned it was early (5:59 a. M. now). What I failed to mention was that I've been up for a couple hours now. Oh, and I only went to bed an hour before that. You see, I have insomnia. I also have generalized anxiety disorder, severe depression, bipolar and agoraphobia. I'm also a recovering addict, 62 days clean today, Thursday December 29th I'm happy to say. Now, I'm not asking for pity. That just isn't the case. I'm simply sharing this because this is who I am. I struggle, every day. I never know what the day is going to bring, but I push through. I do the best I can with what I have. Do I feel like giving up some days? Yes, absolutely, I do. This is the hand I've been dealt though. This is my life. As much as it feels some days that I am doing this alone, truth is, I am not alone; I am not the only one, and if me sharing this reaches one person who is struggling, in a positive way. It is well worth my sharing my struggles. If you are struggling, ask for help, reach out to someone, hell, reach out to me. You can't do it alone. I have been blessed with a beautiful, compassionate and understanding wife. I lean on her on a daily basis. I have not made the first year and half of our marriage easy, rather I made it a living hell, but she has stuck by my side. She understands, I am not my diseases. My diseases don't define who I am; neither do yours. I look forward to seeing what this program has to offer and whether it be business related or just the need to talk, I'm always here. God bless!
Upsales's Goals 3
Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
I'm not certain I desire or have the need to be filthy rich. I just want to be comfortable. I want to be financially stable. I want to be able to provide a good life for my wife and step-daughter. If I had to put a dollar amount on that. 40 grand plus a year
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
considering I'm currently unemployed, anything sounds worth getting ecstatic over but I guess 75-100 grand a year, that would be pretty friggin' cool.
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
as much as it takes

How much would you be ecstatic earning?

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

I'm glad I stumbled across your profile. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

You have inspired me to get more written about myself at least. I have what I call a "suicide man" in my head. Ya know, whispers thoughts and ideas about leaving. Sometimes the man is quiet and others very very loud. After joining WA, I have thought about opening up a blog site based around the daily struggles I myself have with anxiety, depression, and like I said, suicidal thoughts.

I haven't attempted since high school, and don't intend to. FYI.

I think I will indeed open up a bog site in the near future. Maybe I can finally make the "suicide man" disappear for good.

Thanks again, and I wish you the best new year a fighting man can possibly have.

Hi Kameron, If you think you can you can. i've been working on myself for past years cause i hated who i become because of depression and anxiety shit stuff. I just now started gratitude sayings each day and rewiring myself for what i want not what i don't want, it takes time but its well worth it. I suggest Bob Proctors videos its turning my world of hell around to have heaven on earth then die and finally find peace
Cheers Dave

Restructuring the mind to think positively is definitely important. I do love Bob Proctor, he is an amazing man.

Those anxiety meds...benzos in particular...were one of my downfalls....I will be off them a year in May...speaking from experience be careful coming off them if you take them...it can be hell...and yes life is a gift....because I can honestly not believe I'm sitting here today with everything I did to destroy myself...I know I must be here for a reason...maybe I found what I was looking for in WA...I tell you...I have a good feeling...I have no doubt it will take hard work...and it's not going to happen overnight but this program...this community amazes me...it's so nice to see kindness...everyday...in today's crazy world

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! :)

Well...here's what I'm thinking as far as niche goes...I actually have more ideas than I can't even say right now or that you would have time to listen to...my brain is flooded with them...but a few are really standing out as something I need to do...not sure if you read my profile but I have struggles...just like everyone I'm sure but mine can really take over at times...I'm thinking of mental health...I did decide that was to broad though so I'm gonna start with depression...I know I'm not the only one who suffers from it out there...I already looked and there are affiliate programs out there for depression...I struggle with it daily and could talk about it for days on end...it actually helps and I think I would be helping people at the same time...what do ya think? Thanks for your time...much appreciated...I look forward to hearing your thoughts... Thanks Kyle...hope you're having a great day

Sure, you could definitely head in the direction of depression. That is definitely a viable niche.

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. :)
