About Vangiemc
Joined January 2017
I'm a baby boomer looking to enter my next chapter of life. My family is grown and grandchildren are on the way and I would like to keep busy with a more flexible work lifestyle as I can't imagine retiring and not working at something!

I have a strong case of FOMO. Fear of Missing Out. I love to be active; hiking, biking, reading, dining, traveling, hoola hooping, photography, entertaining .... etc. I love life and all the experiences that are offered. Thus the possibility of a On Line Business intrigues me.

I will be retiring in the next year as a Medical Radiographer where I have taken X-ray images of the human body. It has been a most facinating career with many medical and technological changes thru my life time. I love the continued learning and adapting I have had to make thru out my career. With retiring I know I won't be able to sit still and watch tV so I've taken up photography that gets me out of the house taking images of my surroundings and in colour! The technical side of photography is surprisingly similar to producing X-ray images but far more creative. I've dived into this new world of photography and would love to share with other Next Chapter boomers my knowledge and passion.


PS. I haven't read find my Niche yet. Am keeping an open mind to possibilities that might present themselves. Thanks in advance to any encouragement!

Hi Dennis. Thanks fir the offer to check out my site and where to list etc. I will book mark your comment and when I'm out of this crazy business lately I will check your sites and comment. In the last 6 weeks we have bought a condo, decluttered our home, listed it, moved our son,girlfriend and baby, moved our younger son, helped him paint and Reno, and keep our own house on show status clean and tidy. Thus no work on WA. My time will come again and I'll get working the WA again!
Take care and thanks for listening to my rant!

Hi Evangeline, Thank you so much for following back. I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM. The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income. [Kelsey]

Hey, Evangeline, good afternoon to you, and welcome to WA. My name is Ken and I thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. I am also approaching retirement in a few more years, which is why I am here at WA. I would love to have multiple streams of income flowing in from online platforms that I am learning about now. Since our SS benefits are rapidly disappearing from all our corrupt politicians, I need something I can count on. What better way to cover your a** than by creating online passive income.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in your journey to your online empire.

Greetings Evangeline, and welcome to the wonderful and exciting world at Wealthy Affiliate!

I was born in the late 60's....so I think I'm a Generation X or Y (who names these things anyway?)

What a great way to set yourself up before, retirement! Looking forward to being a part of your network!

Hello Evangeline,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Evangeline!

Great to meet you here, it sounds very much like you are in a similar stage of life as I am, much has been experienced in the past but much to look forward to...

I had not heard of the FOMO thing, but it sure does fit hehe...I like to stay involved and sometimes fail to realize that I am not in my twenties anymore (or 30's, 40's or even 50's darn it!)...

Retirement from the day job is not a bad thing, I did it at the old age of 42 the first time (for a week only, then was flying out to Bosnia-Herzegovina)...

Over the subsequent years I have started various things, traveled in ways and to places that were not possible in the earlier days (other priorities) and in general enjoyed life very much...

I am sure that it will be the same for you....Best of luck here and you are in the right place for this online marketing thing. This has the best training I have found to get started right!

Cheers and look forward to reading about your progress and successes!

Dave : )

Thank Dave,
Yes it is great to meet you too. I saw some of your posts and thought it would be good to follow someone in the same stage in life. You are a wee bit ahead in retirement yourself but actually it doesn't look like retirement but rather a new chapter in life. Its a great ride isn't it?

Yes, priorities and responsibilities are changing and I'm a wee bit restless person and not too keen to spend my spare time watching t.v. So, I'm taking a passion and taking advantage of the awesome tools at WA to build a web site and hopefully web business.

I appreciate how down to earth your view is by being open and honest with the prospect of buckling down for the long haul.

Anyways, I'm rambling. Should get back to the lessons.

Take care,

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! :)
vangiemc Premium
Yes narrowing down a niche is challenging. I think I will dive into a free website and see what the process is with my first niche idea. Thanks for the reach out.
