Hello everyone, thank you for checking out my site and learning a little bit more about me. Some of my hobbies are gardening, fishing, hiking and traveling.
The Early Years
I had worked in the corporate world for years. Did all the right things. Went to college, got a good job worked hard. After some time I began to dislike my job. Yes I know not an uncommon thing. I could see I was working and no matter how hard I worked my paycheck was never really enough.
So what did I decide to do? Well after 15 years of work I decided to go back to school and get my MBA. Again I did it all right, went to a good school graduated with honors, got accepted into the honor society for the school. In my entire MBA program I had straight “A”s. I figured I would graduate and the world would be my proverbial oyster.
Life had a curve-ball to throw me. I did graduate but I graduated in May of 2008. You guessed it the recession hit. Now here I was a man in his mid 30’s with two kids and a wife and loads of student loans. So I found a job in my old industry and continued to look for something new. Need to pay those bills you know.
Then my wife, of 15 years, had a great opportunity to move to Ireland. So I quit my job and the family moved to Ireland, where I was to care for my children and be a house husband. Not a bad gig, but overtime distance grew between my wife and I. Until we decided to go our separate ways.
Once I was again with another curve-ball of life. Now I am in my early 40s, no job for a few years living in Ireland where I don’t have a work permit or anyway of making a living. So I took the next step in my life. A friend of mine was living in China and he and his wife had just started a language school and he needed teachers. I thought well the money will not be good, but at least I can pay my bills. So I packed my bags and moved to China.
It was there in China where I met the love of my life and ended up getting married again. I thought I would never do that again but life is fickle that way. I still teach English in China, but the money wasn’t that good. So I started looking into working online, how else was I going to travel. I tried this and that but it was really a shotgun affect. Over time I had ended up spending more money that I had made. Couldn’t really figure it out. No one really to guide or train me. I had two different websites but the best I could do was get about 15 visitors a day after one year. No real sales to speak of. My gross revenue for the year was $68 between the two websites.
My Turning Point
That all changed when I found free training. No obligation to ever buy anything. They even gave me two free websites. Those websites are always free no matter if I buy something or not. No heavy sales pitch or anything. I began to learn and apply those principles over time. Now for the first time I can see some traction. I will continue to show that progress in future posts.
