I've Chosen My Niche and My Website Is Being Built

After six weeks of working with my coach, I have chosen my niche product and am awaiting the completion of my website. It is being built by Ignite Builder. Are you ready to find out what my product is? Drum roll please.....

I will start off selling antlers for dogs! Yes, that's antlers for dogs...

Thank you, thank you. (I have to give myself some encouragement.)

Seriously, though, I am excited to start selling a product that I believe in and that I am anxious to promote. A large percentage of my Facebook friends have dogs, so I have a ready-made pool of potential customers built in. I don't want them to feel pressured by me pushing a product, of course, but I do think that pet owners like to pamper their animals at times. So I see no harm in a plug here and there to let them know what's (going to be) available on my website.

Antlers are a terrific treat for dogs, large and small, because they will chew on them for hours. If your dogs are like the ones in my life (see above pictures), you know that sometimes you just want them to lay down and stop begging to go out for a walk or out into the backyard to play with tennis balls! Enter "antlers for dogs." Antlers are safe, long-lasting, and durable, so our doggies will curl up with them and gnaw away for hours.

My new website will be, and I will let you know when it is up and running. My vision is finally going to take shape. It can only get better from here!

Scary Movies Always Make Me ... Sigh?

Twenty or so years ago, a young filmmaker from my home town shocked Hollywood by releasing a feature length move that was a box office smash. What was shocking about the Blair Witch Project was that it was shot using handheld cameras and was about as low budget as you can get. I still have a DVD copy of that movie, even though I have not watched in over a dozen years. My family members are not big into scary movies.

Now a new movie is going viral, at least on the Internet, and it is equally unique. This movie is only two minutes long, but it's as engrossing as any full length feature out there. I can't believe I am posting this video here, but since I made myself watch it (in a 1 inch by 1 inch frame, with no sound), it is an esquire treat of sorts.

If you like scary stuff, then this movie is for you. If you are easily shaken by spooky stuff or are prone to nightmares, then do NOT watch.

Mea culpa!

Here's another chance to get the bejeebers scared out of you!

Making Progress on My Online Business

Back in January I wrote about the Tube Cash Code business that had re-ignited my interest in working from home. Although the Corey Gates experience did turn out to be a bust, I can't completely discount it since it led me to the training that I am now undergoing.

Over the last five weeks I have been working diligently at identifying a niche product that I can build a website around to start making money. I am excited to say that I have got my product, and will soon have my website set up. But first let me mention some behind the scenes legal and financial stuff that I have accomplished.

I now am a business owner. Well, that's what I call it since I set up a limited liability company (LLC) to protect my personal property from lawsuits. I officially own DMSM Enterprises, LLC, which cost me $110 online to set up. I also applied to the IRS for an employer identification number (EIN), even though my LLC will be a disregarded entity in Virginia where I live, and all income will be taxed to me as an individual. I will be the only employee at the outset, but hopefully that will change down the road when my business gets rolling.

A few days ago I set up a Paypal business account, and yesterday I applied for a business credit card from Bank of America to be able to track all of my expenses and income separately from my personal expenses and income. I have also learned how to create Paypal buttons to add to my website and blogs so that I can start trying to earn some income. I know it will be slow going at first, but I can be patient when I know that good things await.

Through my course that I am taking with Paramount Concepts, I signed up for an account with They will help me identify suppliers for products as I continue to grow my business. They also have set me up to attend a conference in Las Vegas in June. I only have to get there, and they will pay for my conference fee and hotel room. I am excited about learning the marketing techniques that will help me to push my website to the front page of Google!

So, are you ready to learn what product I will be selling on my website? Stay tuned for my next posting, when I will reveal the secret!
