Hi, My name is Allan, and my online passion has always been for honest and Low Cost ways to make money at home, and to create opportunities for others as well. I joined WA in 2013, and recommitted in May of 2016.
In some ways I consider myself a "late bloomer". After 17+ years in the corporate world, and two college degrees later, graduating with honors in fields totally unrelated to the accounting background of my previous job, I've finally committed to creating an online income that will take me through to full retirement.
I also discovered (again later in life) that I had a better than average voice.
And I love to sing Gospel. No, not professionally, but good enough not to totally annoy anyone who is listening...or maybe I just don't worry any about it anymore. :)
My greatest passion - Sharing the faith in Jesus Christ which has guided me all my adult life. There is an abundant peace found as you seek to live in the grace and forgiveness of God in Christ.
My most teachable scripture - Matthew Chapter 6: 19-34
Here is my condensed version: Earthly treasure has it's function, but it cannot guarantee safety and security...God is my ultimate provider, and security.
Therefore I'll seek the kingdom of God, and His righteousness above all else.
My favorite quote -
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world: There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine as children do…it’s not just in some of us it’s in everyone. And as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberate others.”
AllanC's Goals 3
Money is not the end game, but at this time it's a key element to reaching many of your life's goals
That said...I'm hoping in the short term to make a few $100/mth to give me some wiggle room out a tight financial squeeze, after that I'll need enough to free up my time and energy so that I can focus on giving back, and building up a "war chest" to help others in need. Then later on I'd like to create a decent retirement income. I'm willing to invest 20+ hrs a week.
