Choosing Your Niche Quiz

by Success Starts Here! on August 19, 2014

I have decided to create quizzes that you can take advantage of to test your knowledge after going through the free training at Wealthy Affiliate.  In this first quiz, since niche selection seems to always stump newcomers of affiliate marketing, I thought it would be the best place to start.

Training: Choosing Your Niche

Trainer: Kyle​

It's probably a good idea to go through the training module (link above) before taking the quiz.  It will make much more sense for you if you do that and you will definitely do better taking the quiz.​


What is Your Sustainability Factor?

by Success Starts Here! on May 8, 2014

One of my biggest goals in life is to earn enough money to live comfortably.  But an even greater goal for me is help others by teaching them how to earn money in such a way that they too can live comfortably as well.

I know we all have differences of opinion about what comfortably means, but I can assure you that I live well within my means and I don't have overly extravagant tastes.  At the same time, I don't believe it's wrong for me to desire the capability to live a bit above the impoverished level and I certainly don't believe it's wrong to help others to do the same. 

I call this the sustainability factor.  Obviously, I need to be able to sustain my own existence (and of course my family).  But that's not enough for me.  I truly believe I can help others learn how to make money to sustain themselves as well.

My philosophy goes against conventional wisdom which suggests that you should give to others in such a way that perhaps someday, you will get something in return if you should ever find yourself in a situation where you need it.  It's the whole Karma concept.  I believe in Karma completely.  But that doesn't mean we cannot teach others to be self sustaining in their own right.  In fact, this does more for the "Karma continuum" in my opinion than to simply give away your money in exchange for that elated, but elusive feeling that comes from the temporary handout that you have been pressured into believing will help.  This type of help is a temporary band aid, but does nothing to help those in need become self sufficient.

If what I say is true that I can help others sustain their lifestyles than I think it only fair that those same people to return the favor and help yet other people as well. I can not only teach people how to earn an income, I can also help people teach others how to do the same.  In this way none of us will necessarily become monetarily wealthy in the truest sense of the word, but we will have less to worry about in the long run, at least from a financial perspective.  It reminds me of the old adage, "teach a man to fish..."  What's even more important is that we can continue to sustain ourselves in such a way as to pass this knowledge on to future generations.
