Trying to find a Niche

I stumbled on a couple of sites that are good for affiliate marketing JVZ00 and ClickBank when writing my post I will be checking on these sites attempting to find some useful products. I went to school years ago and graduated with business degree. I was not able to really use it much during my postal career working as a mail processor and now a data collections technician. Hopefully I will learn in the coming days/months/years to use some of the skills after graduating over 10 years ago.
