A Short Blog

I figure a lot of my friends have noticed that I have not been around for a week or two. Just wanted to let those of you that are not aware, know what is going on.

I have been having some health issues over the last 3 months and haven’t been saying much or writing much.

For those of you that are aware of what is going on in my life right now, I went to the Cardiologist this morning, 7/24. He is going to have to run tests on my heart. Either in his office taking a month or in the hospital taking 2 days. Non-invasive. I go to the hospital around 1000 on Thursday, tomorrow 7/25.

I will be in touch.

The Divine Bazaar SCAM on Facebook and Internet

On June 18, I was cruising on Facebook and an ad came up that caught my attention. This ad was for a “religious” company named Divine Bazaar. It was an offer to receive “free of charge” one ounce .999 Fine 24 K Gold Coin of Jesus with a portrait on the back of the Lord’s Supper in the Upper Room painted by Leonardo DaVinci, by answering 5 Bible Questions most “Christians” could not answer.

Divine Bazaar coins

My Background

With Extensive studies in Paleo Hebrew, Greek, Bible History and Greek History, I already knew that there was not much about Bible questions I could be stumped on by modern day “Christians.” I proceeded and got all 5 questions correct.

Then it was explained that I would receive “Free” an ounce coin of my choice for answering the questions. One Ounce .999 fine 24K Gold coin with a value of up to $1363.00. All that I had to do was pay for the shipping costs with my credit card. Shipping came to $13.95 so I went ahead and ordered it. There were several “gold” coins and a couple of different “gold” bars.

One thing for certain, it would either be Legit or it would be a Scam.

Day 1 – Wed, Jun 19, 2019, 6:38 am

ORDER #37402 was confirmed. Rare Last Supper Jesus Coin.

Day 2 – Thu, Jun 20, 2019, 9:37 am

Your order has shipped out and is on its way. To find your package: 9400111699000296446049

Interesting, I even received a USPS Tracking number to try to show the authenticity of the order.

I pulled up the Tracking number and here is what I saw.

Expected Delivery by MONDAY 24 JUNE 2019 by 8:00 pm

Day 3 – Fri, June 21, 2019, 9:13 am

I received another notice of estimated delivery and checked the tracking number. IT showed where the package had come from since shipping as all tracking numbers show, and that it was scheduled to be delivered the next day.

Day 4 – Sat, June 22, 2019, 07:32 am

On Sat morning I received notice that the package was on the truck to be delivered that day. Since I know the postal carrier on my route, I knew about what time he would be there on Saturday. Having other things going on I knew where it would be when I got home so I went about my business. When I arrived home later, there was no package and no delivery email in my inbox.

Sunday afternoon, my neighbor dropped by with a package that he said had fallen on his porch the day before. I took one look and it was the package from Divine Bazaar. I walked back home, opened the package and it contained One “gold” coin. It was beautiful. But I was still not convinced.

Conclusion

On Monday morning, I left my house with the intention of first finding out whether the coin was real or not. I drove to a friend who deals in jewelry, gold, and silver. I explained to him what was going on and asked him if he would check it out. He first went to the Internet and started finding all kinds of reviews about Divine Bazaar and then reached under his counter and pulled out his test kit to test for the Purity of Gold and Silver.

He took the coin face up and took his knife and scored the face of it to cut through the finish. He then squirted the test solution on the face and it started bubbling and smoking. Right away we both knew that it was FAKE. .999 Fine Gold has no reaction to this chemical. The photo on the left is the actual Backside of the coin I received. The center photo is from the Divine Bazaar website and also showing the Estimated current value for one Ounce of Gold. I forgot to take the photos of both sides of the coin before the test.

The photo on the right is the photo taken of the coin just a few minutes after the solution to determine the purity of the gold was applied. On the right side, you can easily detect the discoloration of the finish. Since the finish was not Pure gold you can see the result. This photo clearly shows that the Last Supper Jesus Coin is a FAKE and a SCAM.

Original Coin BackCoin PictureTested coin

 

The nice thing, I was able to get out of this for only $13.95 loss. No big deal. But what about all of those people out there that had ordered several of these coins. The Money that they have lost. All because of a so-called “Christian Organization” PREYING on unsuspecting, gullible people.

divinebazaar.com puts themselves forward as being a Christian organization offering many “Free” gifts and a substantial number of Tee-shirts, coffee cups, tote bags, and other paraphernalia reasonably priced.

They can be found on Facebook advertising, Facebook Group, on the internet or divinebazaar.com

Colon Health Care: A Review

Happy Colon

Colon health care and colon cancer warnings by the doctors and media in 1990 began my search into what was a major challenge in America. This was the subject of colon health care. The media was saying that colon cancer was at an epidemic rate in America.

Three years previous, I had been introduced to a series of books by Naturopathic Doctor Herbert Shelton on Proper Food Combining: Fasting can save your life; Natural Hygiene. Despite objections from family members, this is the route that I chose to follow.

I began to learn more about this subject in 1991 when I purchased a book titled Colon Health Care at the Health Food store I frequented. I read the book and everything made sense. How the Once high fiber products in our diet had been so refined that they were no longer doing what they were designed by nature to do, Flush the waste out of the Colon. And keep it running smoothly as designed for our entire life. Instead, we were going through the quick and easy fast foods.

Beneficial Fiber Beneficial fiber 2

Quick Summary

Before I read the book, I had tried diet, laxatives, enemas, and nothing helped. I was not eliminating stools in a timely manner. Most of the people that I knew went by the norm that if you had a bowel movement every 2 or 3 days you were normal. From the book mentioned above, I discovered this was a false truth. If we are eating meals 2 or 3 times a day, we should be eliminating those meals 24+- hours later. 3 meals a day, 3 bowel movements a day. This is where the Proper Food Combining came in.

This also worked together with the proper kind of Fiber that we are getting in our diets. The two types of Fiber that we have are Soluble Fiber that dissolves in water and slows down digestion to give you that “full feeling.” And insoluble fiber that adds bulk to the diet and helps with constipation have a “laxative” effect.

Soluble Fiber versus Insoluble fiber

Even after eating properly the previous 3 years before, I was having less and less bowel movements.

Pros and Cons of Colon Health Product

I ordered the product that was recommended by the author and received it a few days later. The best I can recall, it was a bulk powder and had to be mixed with 8 ounces of water. The product definitely performed as per the Colon Health Handbook and the descriptions therein. The following morning, 24 hours after I had taken the first dose I performed my daily ritual.
To prevent from disgusting anyone, I will simply say that I had to open the window to the bathroom and turn the fan on high. When I looked in the toilet it had the look of black rubber bicycle innertubes, 18 to 24 inches in length. No straining. No diarrhea. The product worked.

I continued to take this product 3 times a day about 30 minutes before meals. But the drawback I had was that by the time it was mixed up it began gelling and was difficult for me to swallow. Having to be mixed with water was the second drawback which meant that I had to have a clean mixing container with me whenever I was going to take it. I am a man of convenience and this led my search for a natural product that was easier to take.

Metamucil analysis

This led me to the local health food stores again. I was first told about Metamucil. I began doing some research into this product that could be found even in grocery stores and pharmacies. That was the first Red Flag to me. By doing some studies on the product label I immediately found some things that I did not care for. Metamucil label

90 Calories per 2 Tbsp. Carbohydrate 23g. 16 grams of sugar. Iron, Sodium, Potassium all from chemical sources. Rule of thumb I had been learning, if sources are not listed as from Food, they are chemically made. Sucrose(more sugar), artificial orange flavor and food color #6 which is a carcinogen. Psyllium husk listed as an ingredient but no amount is listed. Another Red Flag.
This is my opinion of what the label reads.Metamucil Product Details

Without Metamucil having the #1 doctor recommended brand label on it, it could make none of the claims that it makes. 100% Psyllium fiber? With other added ingredients.

Yerba Prima Psyllium Husks

While going through the few Colon Care products on the shelf at the health food store, I was reading the labels more closely. This is the one that I went with at the time and it is now 2019 and I have been using it since 1991.

Yerba Prima Psyllium Husks

The photo above is the Product line that is offered by Yerba Prima in 2019. When I began taking it in 1991, there were 3 products in the line. Psyllium Whole Husks, Psyllium Husks Powder, and Psyllium husks caps. As I mentioned earlier, my big thing was Convenience, so I chose the Capsules. Recommended usage was 4-30 minutes before meals with 8 oz of water. My problem was solved.

After having used all of the containers that I had originally purchased, when I ran out I immediately started using the Capsules. I kept a bottle at home for the wife and daughter and carried one bottle in my truck for on the road. By this time my regularity had returned. I would eliminate 2 to 3 times a day, and generally, time in the bathroom was not over 2 minutes. Supplement facts Yerba Prima

You will notice that per serving (4 capsules) Calories is 8. Fat 0. Total Carbohydrate 2.2 g. Insoluble Fiber 0.4 g.  Wow!!! Where are all of the added ingredients? Sugar? Food Color? etc?

I continued to use the Colon caps for several years and one day walked into the store and they had a Veg Cap available. This had been the only negative about the original caps that I used because they were gelatin-based and gelatin is a Pork product and is Unclean.

A few years later Yerba Prima came out with another product named Colon Care.

Colon Care Colon Care Label

Conclusion and Recommendation

I have been using Yerba Prima Psyllium husk products since 1991 with NO ill side effects. My eating habits are up and down as far as being consistent with proper food combining. Since I still carry a bottle with me in my car it also gives me the opportunity to share the information with at least one new person every month.

1991 to 2019 is 28 years that I have been using these products. Even small things like minor headaches disappeared after about 6-8 months of taking the product. Could this be a sign of proper elimination also? I have never had a Colonoscopy because I consider that to be an Invasive Procedure. In fact, my Doc got a bit upset about a month ago when I was going to get a physical done and refused to include the procedure. After all, who knows our bodies better? Our doctors or ourselves and the habits that we formed over the years that have sustained our health.

Since the entire digestion and elimination process begins in the mouth, wouldn’t it make more sense to introduce the products that we need for Proper Elimination to begin in the mouth also?

A Different Kind of Review [College Seniors and College Graduates]

I subscribe to Google Alerts for several things I like to keep up with. And one of them is Affiliate Marketing. Sitting here and looking at the first one titled ’25 Side Hustles and Ways to Make Money at Home’.

All kinds of things on it from becoming a voice-over artist, selling your hair, starting a blog/affiliate marketing, taking care of children, pets, seniors, etc. when out of the corner of my eye I see one about ‘Tutor online-College seniors or graduates earning money by helping others achieve their academic goals from home.’

Immediately I have the thought of reaching out to College students that are going to need the extra money to pay off their Student Loans. Then I did a Google search and came up with this “It takes college graduates an average of about six months depending on their field and the current economic conditions, so how do you survive until you do find that job or have to choose between offers.”

Quick Summary

Many college graduates may have part-time jobs, different kinds of jobs, many were on scholarships, a good deal of them may live at home. “The fact is that approximately 53% of college graduates are unemployed or working in a job that doesn’t require a bachelor’s degree. It takes the average college graduate three to six months to secure employment after graduation.” What Can Students Do To Improve Their Chances of Finding Employment After College?

With Income of some type coming in it does take the strain off of the Graduate as he or she is job hunting. But the first and the second websites that I linked to above only offer ways that the Graduate can go about finding something that is in his career field. And at the time that this is going on the graduate is still unemployed or underemployed and those Student Loans still fall due.

They have devoted all of this time to their studies and getting that diploma in the field of their choice. 34% are underemployed, meaning they work in jobs that do not require a college degree. Around 44% of college graduates ages 22 to 27 work in jobs that do not require a college degree. You just need work. If you’re out of work and you need money to pay the bills, it’s better to take a lower-paying job than to have no job at all. If you are a college graduate and can’t find a job, you may not only have to take less money you may have to take fewer jobs.

Pros

As I was reading through 25 Side Hustles and Ways to make money at home, I saw #17 Tutor Online. So I read on to learn more about this as a positive. A College senior or graduate can earn money by helping others achieve their academic goals from home. They can do this in their own particular field of study through one company or they can teach English with another company. We will consider these to be the Pro side for them.

Why tutor with eduboard?

Cons

 

 

Going through their entire website, in my opinion, the Cons are very many. Eduboard Cons

 

4. Typically, the price for an online tutoring session is $20 per 30 minutes. So with a 20% Commission deducted leaves you with $16 for 1/2 hour. That means that you are trading one hour of your time to earn $32.

5. Video tutorial ranges in between $15-45. These per hour wages are not bad if you are working each session back-to-back and tutoring several students a day, which is a pretty good income. But think of the time that you have been spending when you could be searching for a job in your chosen profession.

6. Tutors Terms of Service.

  • Standards
  • Rules
  • Deadline
  • Unethical orders
  • Payments – Payment is credited after the session has been successfully completed.
  • Commission – Eduboard charges 20% as a commission.

7. Fines

8. Reconsideration

9. Reapplication

10. Account Termination

In Conclusion with the Pros and the Cons about Eduboard, if I were a college graduate and had been searching for a while for a job in my chosen profession, they would be a good source of earning money and helping other struggling students as I was searching. It would also offer me the opportunity to become more proficient in the courses I had taken.

Comparison

Many colleges seniors and college graduates would consider this to be an excellent way to earn extra income. But still, they are working for someone else. Even though, they are not working in the employee status. They are still working for someone else. Colleges simply do not have courses on starting your own business, entrepreneurship, or freedom. All college courses are structured with the 40 – 40 plan in mind. Go to college, get a degree, find a job, work 40 hours a week for 40 years and retire,

What would happen if these same students were to take a look at the benefits of owning their own business in affiliate marketing, For FREE? They could start their own business earning a few extra dollars a month and all the work they are putting into it they are doing for themselves. We are looking at a different kind of Success.

As a Free Member, the cost is $0.00 to start and as long as you choose to remain a Free member. There is no credit card or debit card number ever asked for. You receive Live Help for the first 7 days. You receive 2 Free websites that you are taught how to build. You also receive Website Backup, the Beginner Training course that will teach you and help you to build your websites, Your personal Blog, Phase 1 of the Affiliate Bootcamp and much, much more.

You will actually learn all that is necessary to build your websites and begin to generate an income. Where this differs in a conventional part-time job is that the work that you do today, may not begin to pay you any large amounts of money for 6 months even a year in the future. But you are building a foundation for free and when it begins to work into profit, it will be only the beginning.

For a more detailed explanation of the Free Starter member.

Conclusion

Are the things that a college senior or a college graduate study a Passion to them? Are they something that they can talk about for hours at a time?

Don't waste your life trying to impress other people.

I look forward to seeing you and welcoming you. Become a Free member of Wealthy Affiliate Today.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

We have been discussing How To Turn Your Passion Into Profit. Would you like to earn money online? Have you thought about starting your own business? Are you looking for a way to take your passion and use it to supplement your retirement?

I have discussed how to become an affiliate for free, how to’s about training, niches, websites, research, and keywords. But what is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website(you) for traffic or sales generated from the referrals you place on your website. When you become an Affiliate, you promote other people’s products, earning a commission if people actually end up buying thanks to your marketing.

 

Why Is Affiliate Marketing Becoming So Popular?

In the discussion of 85% of People Hate Their Job I have listed a number of reasons. And add to those, people are more and more looking for ways to Take control of their Time and their Lives.

Affiliate marketing can be very time-consuming in the beginning. The training you need, the website, the content that you are providing on your website and it takes from 3 to 6 months or longer before you begin getting traffic. They earn from pennies in the beginning to a couple of hundred dollars a month.

You can take a look on Internet Live Stats and you will see a continuous update. There are approximately 1.7 billion websites being searched by more than 3 billion Google searches at this very moment. What are they searching for? Merchandise, information, How to make money, How to buy a home, How to create a website, Self Improvement,,,,, and thousands of other things. As an affiliate marketer, with your own niche website, recommending any one of thousands of different retailers, you are not only providing a service you are also creating an income.

4 steps

As an affiliate, you are rewarded for promoting all types of products and services. Regardless of your age, education level or background. All you need is an internet connection and a computer to get started. People from all walks of life are earning money online through affiliate marketing.

4 Reasons to Begin an Affiliate Marketing Business

1) It Is a Low-Cost Business to Get Started

With Wealthy Affiliate, you can Get Started for Free. Your training program walks you through every phase of affiliate marketing from creating your own website or blog, to all the training necessary to become a successful affiliate.

Website hosting and domain names are part of the program.

You will also be learning different ways to make your content Go Viral. Viral content is an article, image, video or any other material that’s shared faster in the online market. When your website goes viral because of the amount of Traffic that it is producing, the links that you have pointing to the portal of the Affiliate company your Earnings begin to spiral upward because of the products you are recommending. You have built Trust with your readers.

2) You Gain Independence Both Personally and Professionally

You become your own boss! You decide your own hours! You can work at home or on the beach, from the coffee shop or beside the pool. Wherever you are, as long as you have an internet connection.

You can also earn as much as you want. Earnings are not limited by the number of hours you put in. Once your Niche is established you simply continue to publish the meaningful content. You are learning how to turn your passion into profit.

3) It Is Perfect for People Who Love Competing

As an Affiliate Marketer, you own your own website or blog in your particular Niche.

You are writing articles that attract traffic to your site and promoting items that you associate with in your blog. These items are then linked to the company that you are signed with as an Affiliate. You are competing against the thousands of other people that are writing blogs and affiliates with the same companies.

And you are the best at what you do.

4) You Are Selling What You Want

You are your own boss.

Your honesty and integrity remain intact. You only work with people that you want to associate with. You only affiliate with those companies that sell the highest quality of products that you believe in. There is beauty in that. You are creating and shaping your career on your own.

It’s important to note that as an affiliate marketer by law you need to have an affiliate disclosure statement on all pages that contain affiliate links. This is a requirement by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). This goes back to integrity and honesty again.

success repeated

Conclusion

On another website that I designed and built I checked out several affiliate programs. ClickBank, ShareASale, eBay partner network, Amazon. I chose Amazon because of the number of products relating to my Niche alone, 470,000 products. Amazon US sells more than 606 million products. Here is just an example of the hundreds of books they carry on Affiliate Marketing.

The nice thing about it is that when I place a link on my website for a product that the reader may be interested in, the user goes into the Amazon portal from my registered link, as an affiliate. They may be looking at an item that only sells for $22.00.

Once the user is in Amazon they start looking and thinking about what else they might need. Would it be unusual for someone to come out having spent $100 to $1000? And if you only earn 6% on the entire sale? My first check from Amazon was for 2 weeks in December and the full month of January. I received my commission direct deposit in February. It was only $13.43. Did I smile? This was all that it took for me to understand how Affiliate Marketing really works.

The end of May will be here soon and I am already getting excited. One thing more, each Affiliate company has its own guideline policies and rules. Be very diligent in reading and understanding them when you become an Affiliate with whatever company you decide to go with.

I look forward to welcoming you today to Wealthy Affiliate, the place to make dreams come true. and will be there to answer your questions as you begin your journey. Not a get-rich-quick scheme. But a chance to build a long-lasting business.

My Wealthy Affiliate Review – April 2019

I know if you have been searching for ways to make money online you have run across affiliate marketing examples and the many companies doing it. That is how you have found this website today. There is one, in particular, you may have noticed – What is “Wealthy Affiliate?” That was my thought when the name first came up. This is my perspective of Wealthy Affiliate as an insider since I am a Premium Member.

  • Is it a legit opportunity or just another scam
  • What are the main features?
  • How much does it cost? (Spoiler: you can join for free and stay for free forever)
  • *What are the pros and cons?

My Personal Journey

I am in retirement for several years and have been living on Social Security. Every month, Always the same problem. Too much month left at the end of the money. I had been in Network Marketing with a company for many years, while I was still working my job, but I just never could become successful with it. Things were getting critical in my life.

I had been searching for several months online at different opportunities but it seemed like there was always one or two negatives in each of them.

A friend had helped me become involved in a network marketing company in CBD oil in the spring and when I started working it, it went nowhere. So I was about to get burned out in being able to find an online business that I could actually be successful at.

This friend called me about the company we were both with and he was negative about something that he had found out. He also told me that a friend of his had gotten him involved with a company called Wealthy Affiliate and sent me the link to join as a Free starter member. The date was September 18. I went to Google and did a search and started reading about this company. Almost all the reviews I read were Positive about it. And yes, there were some negatives. The next day after much research, I joined as a Free member.

Free Starter Membership

After reading through the information about the Free Member, I found that it was exactly as explained in the presentation for the Free Starter member. The tools I needed to start my online business, the training with step-by-step video tutorials and much more. Nothing was left to chance and I couldn’t believe that I had found a program this fast that I could join for free. No credit card or debit card required for sign-up. That was very reassuring. Could it be that I had actually found a legitimate program?

Starter Includes:

  • The full beginning training programs

  • Your own personal affiliate blog

  • Two free websites

  • Website backup

  • You earn while you learn

  • You can become an affiliate of Wealthy Affiliate

While perusing the Wealthy Affiliate website I also found out that I could upgrade to their Premium program. I studied the benefits of the Premium program and realized that with the Starter I could build two websites and start generating extra income. I looked at the benefits of the Premium and within a couple of days, deciding this was going to be long term, I upgraded to Premium.

Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool

 

Having used the computer for years and doing many searches I was unaware that the words I typed in Search were Keywords. These are the words that cause certain pages to load in the top search results. As training progressed I realized these Keywords were critical in getting ranked.

Someone might search my Keywords “How to turn your passion into profit?” If they do, I am attempting to “rank” in the search engines so that my website ranks on page 1.

Jaaxy not only shows you who is searching for keywords it also shows you which one is low (or high) or high competition. What could be better than that? It teaches you how to go after the “low hanging fruit,” which is high search volume but low competition.

Jaaxy, created by the founders of Wealthy Affiliate in 2005, Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim. It began as a keyword list service to search out keywords used in the millions of websites that were in the search engines. It has evolved into the best affiliate marketing training program, in the world.

You can try it here for free. Type your keyword in the space below:

Whether beginner or experienced — You will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate!

By now, you are wondering, Can I do this? When I started, I knew nothing about building a website. Now I have two. I also have purchased and own two .com domains. I knew very little about writing a blog although I was consistently on Facebook writing every day. I learned how to channel my thoughts into those things that I was Passionate about. I continued with the training progressing to new levels daily.

I set a flexible schedule from day one. I discovered after a few days, in order to be able to reach my goals, I would have to make the schedule more rigid. I would have to Plan my work and Work my plan.

At the end of each lesson phase is a Discussion where you can ask questions on that particular lesson with a list of the Top Helpers in This Lesson. Here your questions will be answered, you will gain insights from Kyle and other members of the WA Community. You can also start building your list of Followers and those that you are Following. From those you Follow, you will build new relationships with people all around the world.

How Do I Choose My Niche?

Now that you are familiar with what a Niche(pronounced neesh) is, have you been thinking about what our passion is? What is the one thing that drives you to do what you do every day? Let’s take a moment and talk about your WHY.

What is your WHY?

Your WHY is your purpose. Your WHY is what makes you come alive. It is the reason that you do the things that you do.

German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche once said, ‘He who has a why can endure any how.’ Knowing your WHY is the first important step in learning how to achieve the goals that you get excited about. Your WHY connects with your Niche, your passion. When you know your WHY you will find the courage necessary to take the risks necessary to get ahead.

Below are 4 questions that will help you to determine your WHY. By thinking about these questions it will help you to determine what that ‘sweet spot’ of what your Niche is.

Your Why

  • What makes you come alive?
  • What are your innate strengths?
  • Where do you add the greatest value?
  • How will you measure your life?

What Makes You Come Alive?

Once you know your WHY it becomes easier to find your Niche. Your Niche is your Passion your favorite. This could be your favorite sport, your favorite vehicle, your favorite shoes, your favorite clothes, your favorite work atmosphere, or perhaps your favorite wine. Your mind should be getting full of ideas. There was one word in that string that was repetitive. Did you notice the word? FAVORITE. Is your favorite connected to your WHY? It should be.

If you are stuck at this moment on choosing a Niche, you may have an interest in the make money/affiliate marketing niche. As a Free member, you can create 2 websites. Phase 1 training of the Affiliate Bootcamp is dedicated to those interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

What Are Your Innate Strengths?

Do you get excited thinking about what it is that you intend(not wish or dream about)to do? Are you creative, naturally adept at coming up with ‘outside the box’ solutions? Are you naturally good at executing projects with a precision that some find tedious? Do you see patterns and opportunities in all the complexities of life?

You can also be passionate about things you have no natural talent for. , and talented at things for which you hold little passion. Ask yourself, what makes you come alive? Not what other people want for your life. Then go and do that thing.

Success is the sum of all small efforts

Take your time. This is the beginning of your journey.

Where Do You Add The Greatest Value?

Whatever profession you are in now, disliking or loathing it is not a pathway to fulfillment. This is where your Passion comes in. How can you use your education, knowledge, skills and experience to help you focus on the opportunities that lie within your Passions?

(1) Education: How much time do you spend in educating yourself on those things your Niche is about? You may think you already know why you have the Passion that you do about something. But do you honestly? What do other people think about that same subject?

(2) Knowledge:) Are you able to talk for hours about your Niche? Are you so passionate about your Niche that you can sit and write for periods of time and not waver? This will also allow you to focus more on the things that you are not aware of. We gain knowledge by searching.

(3) Skills: What skills do you currently have that you would use to build a website about your Niche? How long have you been using them? Could they use any improvement? The great thing about the Free Member program is that if you do not have the skills necessary now, at Wealthy Affiliates you can begin learning them for free and build 2 Free Websites.

(4) Experience: Focus on your natural strengths. They will guide you in choosing your Niche. Your experience grows as you learn new things about your passion.

How Will You Measure Your Life?

There are several ways to measure your life. Integrity, friends, money, family, lifestyle are the beginning. Living with purpose means focusing on things that matter most. Ironically, the things that matter most are rarely “things.” What about the other things deep within you that drive you to do the things that you do? It all goes back to living with purpose.

Is your passion your purpose? Some people are in a position to trade the security of a regular salary to pursue a passion, many unfortunately can’t—at least not in the long term or without violating core values (like providing for their family of paying off debt). But what if following your passion could provide the money needed to continue to provide you with those things that matter most? Make it your goal.

Your goal will be to help people, inform people, recommend products/services to people, and offer your opinions on various aspects of your niche. The thing about it is you don’t need to be an expert or authority. As you build out your website and as you immerse yourself in your business, you become an expert. Wealthy Affiliate PROVIDES FREE Starter members 2 websites. As a Premium member, you can host up to 25 of your own domains, and 25 free websites on their domain.

No matter what your job, you can draw meaning from it and find greater purpose through how you do what you do.

When you know your purpose, it may compel you to take on challenges that will stretch you as much as they inspire you.

Purpose

Finding Keywords For Your Niche

Now that you have decided what your Niche is it is time for you to start researching a Title for it and the keywords that you should use.

One way that you may have noticed if you use Google search very often when you begin typing a word into Google, a drop-down menu opens and as you type the word in, Google is anticipating the word you are searching for. This is one method that you can use and often times is successful.

Another method I made mention of in a previous post is the Jaaxy Keyword research tool which will give you 30 Free searches. With this tool, you will see how easy it is to come up with keywords for your Niche and also how you can create a title for your Niche that will help you to get Traffic to your website. Try Jaaxy today.

Your Future Is Ahead Of You

I hope that the points I have made above will help you in your search for a great Niche for you. I look forward to welcoming you today to Wealthy Affiliate as a Free member and will be there to answer your questions as you begin your journey.

Keyword Research and Your Niche

Now that you have gotten started and are in training one of the most important things that you are going to be learning is how to write Content for your website for your Niche. In order to write powerful content that will place your website into a good ranking is you need to place keywords in different places in your content.

WHAT IS A KEYWORD?

A keyword is simply a word or phrase that people search for in search engines. Every time you do a search you are entering a “keyword” into the search box. Keywords are how people find your articles in search engines.

When someone types in the words “online jobs” or “how to train a dog”, these are Keywords. Keywords can be single words or they can be long chain keywords as above. For example, “How to train a dog” gets 6179 searches per month. “How to train your dog” gets 4116 searches per month.

When you are using Google search you will notice as you are typing in the word’s, Google is anticipating what you are searching for. It is showing you different options for the word or phrase that you are typing. This is an example of keyword research.

How to find keywords

DIFFERENT KEYWORD TOOLS

Many people find it sufficient to use an Extension that you can get in Google Chrome. I have used this in the past myself but find that it does not give me the information most needed. These are based on the keyword used:

(1) those you have to Install

(2) those that do not use all relevant data

(3) those that require several searches to achieve the result

(4) those that do not pull from All the search engines

(5) those that you have to add to get Complete searches

Most of them have absolutely useless data.

WHAT IS THE BEST KEYWORD TOOL?

Over the years, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate have found that the best keyword tool rests on 3 pillars to be effective.

(1)Low Competition. This should be your first focus when you are searching for a keyword. If the keyword has too much competition then you are not going to rank very well and you are not going to be getting any traffic.

No rankings = No traffic.

When searching for a quality keyword there a benchmark I use, called a QSR(known as Quote Search Results). I was first introduced to this term when I joined WA and find it very useful. Having looked at other keyword tools, I have found none that offer a QSR.

The tool is called Jaaxy and is only available with Wealthy Affiliate. The QSR allows you to see how many competing pages are on Google. This is your REAL competition. I look for a QSR under 200 for competing pages, preferably the closer to 0 the better.

First keyword pillar: Under 200 QSR.

(2) Must get some TRAFFIC. When looking at Traffic you are looking for something with a reasonable volume. 30-60 searches a month means more than 500 to 1000 that are high competition. The lower the competition the better the chances of page 1 rankings in Google.

When you add 3 or 4 low volume keywords to your content this is going to improve your results as well. They also convert better.

Being able to compare your Traffic with your QSR and choosing your keywords or phrases in this manner gives you more control over your content.

Second keyword pillar: Between 30-60 Traffic.

(3) Must make SENSE. If you are trying to write content with a keyword that doesn’t make sense it is an uphill battle. As an example the title of this website – How To Turn Your Passion Into Profit. The title makes sense and the keywords are in the title.

how passion profit vs. how to turn your passion into a profit

If the content is awkward do not use it. It must make sense to people. Remember, the content we are writing is for our audience not for the search engines.

Third keyword pillar: Must make sense to our audience.

For you to see how well Jaaxy performs, simply type your keyword into the space below:

 

This is an example of the first keyword search I did for this website. The words I used were profit from your passion. You will notice a large L at the beginning of some words. Jaaxy also allows you to save your searches combining them all into one.

Jaaxy example

 

What Is A Niche

What is a Niche in business? “A small but profitable segment of a market suitable for focused attention by a marketer. Market niches do not exist by themselves, but are created by identifying needs or wants that are not being addressed by competitors, and by offering products that satisfy them.”

How do you find your Niche? What are some things that you have a Passion for? Sports, motorcycles, wildlife, clothes, traveling, health, babies, flowers, backpacking, dogs, history, cats, etc. Your Niche is something that you have a Passion for and can talk about for hours on end.

How can you turn your Passion into Profit? As of March 2019, there were 4.4 Billion people online using the internet doing everything from playing games to buying and selling homes, and billions of other products. Out of those 4.4 billion, how many do you think there would be that would be interested in the knowledge you have of whatever your passion is.

How many people online are looking for ways to supplement their income? Wealthy Affiliate could also be a Niche. And at Wealthy Affiliate, you will not only get the training it is free to start.

A Final Word

With the information I have provided you about Keywords and Your Niche or Passion, I believe that more people are looking at Affiliate marketing as the way to capitalize on the things they love, help other people and earn an income at the same time.

85% of People HATE Their Jobs

According to a Gallup Poll released in August 2017, eighty-five percent of people worldwide admit to hating their jobs in an anonymous survey. And if you are reading this right now you may be in that category.

hate my job

HATE YOUR JOB


Here are the 5 major reasons why people are becoming unhappy with their current vocation

Paycheck

Many of us are working one or 2 jobs and working 50+ hours a week just to make ends meet. Then we seem to always come up with too much month at the end of the money. That paycheck is the result of your work, not the reason for your work. Maybe it is what your parents wanted you to do. Maybe it was the career that you learned that keeps you in debt with student loans. Maybe it was the promises that you feel were made to you as you were training for your career. If you think that it is the paycheck then that is why you hate your job. Once you reach your goal, you will always want more.

Leadership

Managers come and managers go and the company remains the same. Managers are the leaders of the workplace and an ineffective manager cannot lead. Leaders should be bringing the best out in their followers by inspiring them to do more. When a worker deserves praise the Manager should be the first one to give the praise. When this doesn’t happen it has been shown that the workers’ production levels suffer. Many people in the workplace hate their managers because of this one simple thing. Workers are not appreciated.

 a bad leader

Another thing that adds to this is that so many people today are in the service industry because so many of the manufacturing jobs have moved offshore because wages are so much lower and they can get long hours out of the workforce. The managers that we have been trained in company oriented skills and not in people skills. We have a bunch of leaders who aren’t trained on how to lead.

Workplace

Many times you like what you do. You like your boss. But the environment that you work in is just not suitable for you. It just stinks. It could be the corporate structure or the actual location of where you work. It could be other relationships from work. Whatever it is you just don’t like being there. Every week is the same. Another Monday has come again. Another Monday

But we know that if we don’t go to work that we will not have a full paycheck next week. And we also know that if we play hooky that there is a chance that we might get caught and lose this boring job that we hate and put us in the unemployment line. So we get up begrudgingly and go to work.

Wages

Another thing that causes people to be discontent with their jobs is that the harder they work the less money they have. Median income continues to drop as our daily lives get more expensive. Kids, vacations, holidays, sports and many more activities add to this list. Husband and wife are both working and in some cases, both may have 2 jobs. But the after-tax money they are able to accumulate simply is not allowing them to make it. And the opportunity in the workplace is no longer there as it was 20 or 30 years ago.

Working for peanuts

Job Security

Let’s face it. There is no job security anywhere in the workplace today. The days of the 40-year plan no longer work. For those of you not familiar with the 40-year plan:

Go to school. Get a good education. Get a good paying job. Work for the same company for 40 years. Retire with a gold watch and a pension and enjoy your golden years.

The first Major company I worked for had a 25-year plan Retire with a good pension. I left the company 10 years later. This same thing has happened to hundreds of thousands of workers’ in America, losing jobs they have had for 20, 30, 40 years. When the company ends its pension program or moves offshore, the workers’ generally have not increased their skills in other areas as prevention if this were to happen in the future. We no longer have security in any job.

And today we have people all over America on Social Security that are barely able to make it month to month.

Add all of these things up and what do you get, JOB HATRED, across the board.

Job Security

So What Can You Do About It?


There is a better way. There are 4.4 BILLION people online as of March 2019 (YOUR audience) and these people are searching for things all the time. Why not take advantage of the Internet and learn how to help these people find the things they are looking for? If you work as hard at this as you do at your current jobs, with less stress and aggravation you can become very successful with an online business.

If you are unhappy with your current employment situation and have a desire for more out of life the good news is there is a better way and the best thing about it is no experience is necessary.

What is your WHY?

What is your Passion?

$0 to get started, full training for the Free starter member, 2 websites included.

All you need is a computer, an internet connection and a willingness to learn. With a Why and a Passion for anything, you can build your own websites and eventually walk away from the 9-5 grind. It will take some time so do not quit your job today. But what you will accomplish in the next 6 months to a year will follow you for many years because of the choice you make today.

Let’s Get Rolling

When I first went to the internet looking for a job, I was overwhelmed with the number of different types of work from home businesses that were offered. Many of them offering quick money and with my previous years in network marketing, I knew that was not possible. Sell your own brand, buy and sell your own domain, create your own e-commerce store all sounded good but I had no knowledge of how to even get started with little or no money. I was wanting to take action and gain Knowledge in How To Make Money.

Thanks to a conversation with a friend, he sent me a link to the website that I chose and I am highly pleased with my choice.

Getting Started

At this point if you have not read through the link I posted above, it will be necessary to do so. Let’s get started. The first step is to sign up and create your account. When you have done this, you will soon be welcomed to WA. The next step is to set up your profile. Unless you know the basics of affiliate marketing, I would recommend the free starter. The differences between the Free Starter and a Premium Member are shown in the image below. As a Free Starter with Wealthy Affiliate, it gives you the opportunity to see what goes on in the Wealthy Affiliate website. If you are serious about creating an income online the best thing about becoming a Free Starter are the features you will receive the moment you join:

As a Free Starter member you can also create an income for yourself by promoting the Wealthy Affiliate website….with no out-of-pocket expense:Possible Monthly Income

Here is what happened to me. I joined Wealthy Affiliate as a Free Member and started to work. I looked around the site and could see this was going to be a new learning path for me. I progressed straight into the Online Entrepreneur Certification Phase 1 and started learning. It was a simple series of videos, follow and complete assigned tasks program.

Be Persistent

You must set yourself a Plan and then Work your Plan. How much time can you devote daily, to going through the training? When you get that figured out then set the time to follow a schedule to go through the first course. If you are anything like I was, I was already spending a lot of time on the Internet, mainly on Facebook and other websites. I decided to cut the time down that I was spending wasting time and began spending my time learning how to make money online. I am happy now that I did. I still have my Facebook account that I can post my websites on and Facebook Groups that I can freely post ads in.

I was going through Lesson 5 of Phase 1 of the Online Entrepreneur Certification and was setting up my first website. Since I had started as a Free Member, I received a PM from Kyle, the co-founder, about upgrading to Premium. As you can see in the picture in the first section, there is a lot more available at the Premium Level. The first month being at a cost of $19.00, I decided to and upgraded to Premium.

I set myself a goal of spending 8 hours a day working on my training and my website. This went extremely well. At this point I was having challenges coming up with my Niche or as the name of this website is titled, Your Passion. How to Turn your Passion into Profits. I continued to work on this one and put the other one on the back burner.

Be Consistent

Not everyone has 8 hours a day that they can use to develop a new business online. Many people are currently working a ‘job.’ Take a look at the time that you have available and then begin scheduling your time. I would recommend that you use a timer. And use it every time that you have scheduled yourself to study. The timer is the key to managing your time. Everyone has a smartphone and has a timer on it. I recommend refraining from using that timer because of the traps that you can fall into by checking emails, texts or whatever else you receive. I would also set the phone to silent and all calls directed to voice mail.

Prioritizing your activities. Once you start interacting and becoming friends with other affiliates in the WA Community, you will be receiving email notifications daily. These could number in the teens or twenties as your interactions increase. You will be asking questions and wanting to know all that you can. This time should be scheduled into your study time as well. Answering emails, reading and commenting can take up hours of your precious time.

That would also include tasks that you are to complete on all the lessons. Many times as you are going through the lessons you can approximate the time it would take you to complete a task with the skill you already have. Use the timer for searching for photos, quotes, and your Passions.

timer

The timer can also be great for rewards for the time you have allocated for building your business. We all need to take occasional breaks so stress does not build up. Take 10-15 minute breaks and set your timer when you do. Once again, stick to your schedule.

This brings us to the fourth step:

NEVER GIVE UP

What does Never Give Up really mean to you? It means Believing in yourself, Believing in your abilities, believing in your strengths, Believing in your Goals. Since you are in a business of learning how to earn money, I assume that by this time you have set some financial goals for yourself. You will learn in the beginning stages of the program that this is not money that will come today, next week and probably not next month. What you are building may take several months before it starts showing a profit. And it will build from there.

Are you willing to commit?

Let’s take a step back to the beginning of World War 2. On the 29th of October 1941 in a speech at the school he attended as a boy, Winston Churchill spoke the following words: ‘…never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.’ I learned this in 1978, many years after high school and have been using the words since that time.

Do I fail? I have many times but I have always gotten back up and continued or started again.

Are you ready?

I look forward to seeing you and welcoming you. Become a Free member of Wealthy Affiliate Today.
