My Journey in How to Work from Home in the Well Being Niche
I’ve had many people ask me how do I make a blog of my own. They have seen my posts, my website and have enjoyed reading my ideas on how to manage emotions, stress and the numerous ideas I have shared thus far through my blog. So I thought I would share more of how I have created this website and how you too can create a website of your own through a place dear to my heart. Although counselors aren’t money-hungry we still need to be able to feed our families and earn an income. So this post shares my journey of how I started blogging in the Well-Being Niche.
I’m a fan of integrity, honesty and being upfront. With this in mind, I found a platform and learning community that truly has these qualities.
Once I had a family, I found it hard to leave my children to returned to work after maternity leave. I, like many other mums, experienced a range of emotions including guilt, sadness, and worry about how they were managing during the day. I was lucky. They were looked after very well by the carers at our daycare center. It didn’t take long before I adjusted.
The downfall of this was that I had to rely on doing work to get paid. I know this is the norm, but I felt there had to be alternatives to relying on being paid by an employer. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the work I was doing. I still do this work in the counseling field. But I also felt it ironic that I had to leave my own family to help other children and their families. I was torn.
This led me to ask many questions about how do people make money online? Is there a way that I can work from home and create a side hustle? There are so many scams out there. It It took me a couple of bad experiences for me to realize that not everyone has your best interests at heart. They only want your money or want you to promote their high ticket items. Or rip you off with fake programs that don’t do what they claim to.
When Wealthy Affiliate Entered Into My Life
After reading a review of one of these high ticket-with-slick-sales-pitches I came across Wealthy Affiliate. They knew exactly what I had experienced with that horrible MLM style company that I nearly wasted too much money on. Luckily I didn’t get sucked in for long. Instead, I joined Wealthy Affiliate with a free membership to get started. I read and absorbed as much as my free membership allowed me to. After the first month, I was offered a discounted next month followed by the regular monthly payment. It was within my budget so I decided to go premium. I haven’t looked back since.
Initially, it was a struggle for me. I’m very shy when it comes to asking questions. I remember my year 7 teacher telling me to I needed to speak up and ask questions. The same feedback came to me again in high school. I just didn’t like feeling vulnerable by not knowing the answer and potentially looking dumb. Of course, it’s all my own perception, but when you don’t have the skills or awareness it’s hard to work through these issues on your own.
Sense of Community
Once I joined the WA community, I read so much and learned so much, but I had a sticking point. It would really help if I could ask questions. By asking questions, one gets help from the community. There are many people of varying knowledge and skills who can answer most if not all questions. Even the so-called ‘silly ones’ that I thought mine would be. It would have taken me much less time to work out how to do things if only I had asked questions. Long story short, I have, with time and growing confidence, been able to ask questions and share my experiences with others where I felt I had knowledge. This has helped me build up confidence in the online world and work things out with help from a large community.
That’s how I realized how valuable being part of a community with similar interests and values are while learning how to make money online.
The thing that I value the most with the Wealthy Affiliate platform is that it provides a tonne of educational resources that you have access to for as long as you remain a premium member. I have a few university degrees in my chosen career, but none of them make money online. I was hungry to learn so this sat extremely well with me. My learning curve has been massive and I continue to learn new things two years later.
Getting someone else to do things for you is convenient sure. But you are then at their mercy in a sense. You need to ask them how to do something or do it for you. I know I don’t like asking people for help. I’m too independent and feel satisfied with myself knowing that I can do things for myself. It creates a deep sense of achievement. It’s also a good dopamine boost to the brain. Read more about feel-good hormones here.
The people who created Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson, have real integrity. Of course, they’re making money too, but they actually encourage and advocate paying it forward. Yes even in the online world and creating your own brand etc, they encourage everyone to pay it forward. Help each other out. This sits very well with my own values.
They also share how to make money online. They don’t hide anything. Which makes being part of this community feel good while learning how to blog.
The range of niches that you can create a new website in is wide and varied. It is best to narrow it down so that it’s not too broad.
Even the Self Help niche is too broad. There’s so much to cover however is so broad for people to find you in a search. Motivational, self-awareness, mental health, inspirational are all possible niches that one can build out a viable niche in.
So if you were to have a blog about mental health, there are a few sites that you can join to become an affiliate for and then write a blog using keywords that have mental health as part of the keyword or related to the topic you are writing content for. Here are some examples.
Products promoting wellbeing and boosting one’s mood such as these.
As you can see there are a lot of opportunities for affiliates who want to create a website in wellbeing, self-help, and mental health niches.
You can share your knowledge, experience and desire to help others while also working from home and creating an income from your efforts.
Wealthy Affiliate is my choice for learning how to do this from scratch because of their integrity, honesty and genuine help to share with others in how to build an income from home with blogging.
