In a way, my ah-ha moment has been staring me in the face the whole time. I didn't want my niche to be what I did for my day job. But, at NAMS6 I realized I could transform my day job into something better and more interesting.
Several months before NAMS6, Chris Cobb contacted me. She noticed my skills posting in the NAMS forums and wanted to know if I had the experience and interest in a joint venture to develop a WordPress plug-in which we later called "Affiliate Tools Page". With names like Chris Cobb and Joe Marsh as my partners, I wasn't going to say no!
To make a long story short, I realized at NAMS6 that my particular depth of knowledge and experience was rare amongst everyone there. I didn't hand out a lot of business cards, but I was humbled by the several successful people who asked for one. And, it struck me. I decided that my niche would be joint ventures with other Internet Marketers who needed a software architect as a partner. Why take the risk of outsourcing when you can have an experienced JV partner who cares about success as much as you do?
As an aside, several attendees were encouraging me to blog about topics such as how to modify PHP in their WordPress blogs or make tweaks to their themes. Within the next week I'll have IMUnderTheHood.com started with my first post and ready to accept suggestions for future topics. Yet another niche I've been dragging my feet on since January when my NAMS accountability group suggested it.
I've been a Internet Software Architect/Engineer since 1995 and terribly addicted to programming since at least 1988. I've had the privilege of being an important asset in several successful Internet start-ups, either as an employee or as a founding owner. In 2005 I started Summit Media Concepts LLC where I do consulting and a variety of Internet software work for clients and my own products.
I live in central Pennsylvania with my wife Sarah. When I have a chance to take a break from work, I will fish for nearly anything that swims.
