About Wizzkids
Joined January 2018
Hi. I'm Jeffrey. I was born in Brooklyn, New York but my parents migrated West to California when I was three. I spent a few decades in CA, including time earning a College degree in Journalism after completing a tour with the United Sates Navy on a Guided Missile Destroyer based out of San Diego. I owned a photography studio that specialized in commercial and theatrical portraits, fund raising events, and celebratory gatherings.
In early 1992, my mother became ill and I began taking care of her. She succumb to her illness in September and I left the photography business and moved to Eugene Oregon in December.
Although not an enviable task, I enjoyed supporting my mom when she needed me. I decided to work as a caregiver for people with developmental disabilities. I worked in the same group home with the same four medically fragile clients for the next 11 years. In 2005 I was invited to become a case manager supervising 40-plus clients. I helped them create support plans that managed all the services they needed to function at home, in the community and to find competitive employment. I worked there for the next 11 years until I found myself unceremoniously unemployed (which brought me to WA).
I'm married to the love of my life, Sarah, for the past 16 years. We met working in the same group home and fell in love over the next 4 years. We were married nine months after that. Still in love. We have five rescue cats. Hazel (she's the mom) and her four kids. I am quite versed at the art of cooking. I have an eclectic taste for music. I play guitar and race a turbo Miata in Autocross competitions.
I see WA and the internet as a burgeoning opportunity to make a financial living without having a scheduled office job working for someone else. I've spent a good portion of my life helping other people to have the life they wanted and now I'm going to create a new existence for my family.

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! :)

Hi Kyle, Wow is this an incredible adventure and I don't even understand 90% of it. I've thought about my niche since I first became aware of internet marketing, only a couple months ago. I've spent a lifetime working in the social service field and I've an affinity for people on the autism spectrum. My niche is spectrum soothing tools. This could pertain to clothing, diet, books or communication devices. Amazon carries an assortment of products and there are a number of affiliate programs through other businesses. Does that sound like a workable niche? Thank you for the direction.

Don't worry, you are going to get the hang of things as you continue to immerse yourself.

Soothing tools could be a niche and that is definitely a direction you will want to head here if that is something that you are passionate about. :)
