Hey guys! I’m Christian, your guide on this site to obtaining financial freedom.
I just wanted to give a little background on me. I have been involved with the business of the internet for over 15 years now working for various companies as a web developer. I started out by doing a little self-learning and eventually took it to the next level by trying a College education, all while supporting a family. After racking up thousands of dollars in debt, and having plenty of friends find decent paying jobs in the field while having no college education, I decided college wasn’t really for me and took to job hunting. I found that while at times I found the work to be enjoyable, the thought of making money for someone else while earning a meager wage no matter how much work I invested started to weigh heavily on my motivation to continue working. Hell, I even recorded in great detail my productivity, the amount the company was bidding for each job, and how much more in revenue I was making them due to that productivity in an attempt to leverage for better pay. All that got me was laughed at directly to my face, no joke, and told to keep doing my job.
Experiences like that got me thinking. I was dreaming of a time that I could have the confidence to walk out of such situations knowing that I was going to be able to succeed and provide for my family on my own. But I always felt like I had no opportunities to make this dream a reality. I felt very discouraged, and over time I felt more and more burnt out in my profession. All I had was a dream and passion for that dream…
“What I found was that this passion I had was actually the way I was going to attain those goals!”
I loved to talk to people about this dream I had, and the reason that I had such a dream. I found that most everyone I talked to felt the exact same way! That’s when I thought to myself, “Hey, these people all feel exactly what I am feeling and love to engage in open, honest discussion about it. What if I extended this dream to the internet and helped show whoever was interested a way to achieve this dream!” First things first though, I had to accomplish it myself. So I set up a test run by building my own site and trying to get traffic drawn to that site. It just wasn’t going as I well as I had hoped because I didn’t have the tools I
needed or expertise I needed in order to succeed in this new en-devour. That’s when I started looking to surround myself with that expertise and obtain those tools I needed to reach the success I knew was possible.
Bottom line is, that if you have something that you feel passionate about and love to talk about, then most likely there are thousands of other people that do too.
