After going to college(university) and graduating as a Veterinary Surgeon; my future was apparently safely mapped out in front of me.
I would never touch poverty, I would most likely always be gainfully employed in a profession that was easy to comprehend and simple (and with some pride) to explain to others.
Then I went and gave it all away.
From their perspective, I am sure this was a foolish mistake, risky beyond measure, difficult to understand.
From my perspective, it was an obvious choice, to waste my years doing something that I liked BUT that didn’t fullfil my passions; or to take arms against a sea of troubles and give into the dreams that had been in my heart ever since I could remember.
Yes, I have touched poverty on more than one occasion, I have walked, I have stumbled and I have fallen and I have failed far more than I have succeeded BUT at least I have been faithful to the dreams inside of me.
Like attracts like and your niche(s) online will most likely be people who are similar to you; so the hidden secret to finding your niche is knowing who you are…
For example, for years on Seven Sentences (yes “for years” I am exceptionally slow sometimes), I tried to get everyone to like me. The result was slow growth, and displastic blog content, that was well written but did not serve a need on a consistent basis.
Who am I?
I am a creative person, who loves artistic expression, innovation business, entrepreneurship and the power of the internet.
Who are you?

2012 Copyright Seven Sentences – Finding Your Niche
Remember at high school, how difficult it was to hang out with the wrong crowd and make them like you? Well, it’s kind of like that when your marketing your business online.
Art is a business too, so when you are creating, think of your niche and don’t run around the school trying to impress everyone that you know.
People outside your niche might not be interested in who you are and what you are doing; to be honest they might even hate you; BUT that’s okay because you were never trying to satisfy them in the first place.
Yes, you can have more than one niche, but the more niches you have the more difficulty you will have in marketing your business.
I know this for a fact because with Seven Sentences I target several niches and the progresses has been slower because of this.
