Hey guys! I’m Christian, your guide on this site to obtaining financial freedom. Please take a moment to read through this page to learn a little more about me, my story, and how it might help you!
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 the work was 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
At one point, 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 it 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 began 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.
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.
I finally found both expertise and tools, along with an amazing community, at Wealthy Affiliate!
WHY I WANT TO HELP OTHERS SUCCEED
For starters, let’s just say it, being in a situation where you feel financially stuck just plain sucks! There’s no way around that. I know it, and you know it.
It took me a long time and a lot of rough spots in my life to finally reach a point to overcome that feeling of being completely trapped. I honestly don’t want people to feel the way I felt during that time and want to help you get to a better point in your life where you feel empowered and able to spend less time worrying about making it to the next paycheck and more time living out your dreams!
There are so many bright, intelligent people out there that never have the ability to reach their potential because they are locked into a system that the world deems to be the norm. I believe that working most of your life away to barely get by is not at all normal. I believe we are meant to not only dream but act on those dreams and perhaps even improve the world because of those dreams!
HOW DOES THIS SITE HELP YOU
I want you to feel like you can use my website as a reference and blueprint to create something better in your life. While much of what I talk about is business oriented there are many helpful nuggets in my articles that will also give advice on self-improvement and having an overall better sense of well-being.
I also wanted to provide a place where people can come and have discussion on whatever article they are reading while not feeling like they are asking the wrong questions. We are all learning here and there are no wrong questions except those that remain unasked.
If you have some insights on something you read, please tell us about it! I’m always interested in what others have to say about a topic as it helps me learn more about that topic and form new opinions. I’m sure others feel the same way!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
