About Wendyg53
Joined April 2017
Hello, my name is Wendy. I"m a very tired school teacher who dreams of building her own online empire in her spare time. I'm two years away from retiring from the NYC school system, and I know a teacher pension by itself is not going to give me the kind of financial freedom I want for myself.

I've done quite a bit of freelance content writing over the last few years. I've been told I'm pretty good at it. What trips me up is the technical end. I keep wanting to get those websites built, but never quite get around to it. I ran into WA about 10 years ago and joined for awhile, but life got in the way, so I stopped.

I'm more focused and committed now to doing the work and learning required to do online marketing properly. I figure since WA has now been around for so long - and they obviously care about the success of their members - this is the best place for me to be.

Well I am still working full time, but if I organize myself properly, I should be able to commit 5-10 hours a week. Once summer vacation starts, I can triple that commitment.

Hi Wendy,
First...thank you for your service as an educator! I know what you mean by the technical end. I've made multiple attempts at blogging a few years ago, but I got distracted by all the technical stuff. I got tired of trying to figure things out on my own through Google and Youtube and then life distracted me. I'm glad you connected with me and best wishes to you!

Hello Wendy - a very tired school teacher with dreams of building her own empire.
A worthy goal dear lady and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate where that goal is achievable.
Since you joined you will surely have realized that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Thank you Robert! I do anticipate the steep learning curve. Luckily my day job as a computer teacher should give me an edge over someone with no tech background. That being said, I'm still going to need help. I will definitely browse through your blog posts.

Wendy, it is such a good idea to start this new venture BEFORE that fixed income of retirement begins. I just wish I had done that. But, anyway, here we are, and now is the time. I look forward to the building excitement I am sure you will experience as you travel along your chosen path. Oh, yes, and thanks for the follow!

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 for checking in Kyle. I think I am going to go with a niche I've thought about for awhile: Best women's walking shoes. I go through walking shoes and sneakers like it's going out of style. Might as well promote the brands I feel are the best, I think I've worn most of them.

I was also thinking of best women's walking shoes for foot pain. Since part of my issue is an unusual gait that I've seen a doctor about - he was no help. Do I do both? Do I do the narrower niche? That part I"m not sure about.

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)
