About Award232
Joined August 2018
A little about me- I have been in the workforce in some capacity for around 30 years now, starting with my first job at age 14 running the scoreboard for basketball leagues at our local YMCA in Springfield, MO. post high school and after some time in college, I was in the military for a few years. After my military service, I returned home to MO, and helped my mother run a successful real estate company for nearly 15 years, leading up the housing crash of 2008. A short time before the crash I felt something was beginning to go wrong with the market, and as the father of two young daughters, and being our sole source of income I began to look for a different way to make a living, one that would be more stable and would also offer benefits such as healthcare.

I was very fortunate to find a position with the company I am still with, and am getting ready to have my 12th anniversary with them in mid September of this year. My current company has been amazing, and has seen incredible growth since the 2008 recession, but I have bigger personal dreams, and hope I can make an impact through WA for all the members of my family.

I have been married to the same wonderful woman for the past 25 years, and we currently call Salt Lake City, UT home, having been here almost 9 years now after a job transfer. She has suffered with some health issues the past couple of years, and I would love to be able to spend more time at home with her. I am also the father of two amazing daughters, grandfather of two adorable grandchildren, and would like to be able to help them all so they don't have to struggle with money in their lives.

My family is my driving force, why I get out of bed every day, and am in the office five days a week at 6 am. I am not afraid of hard work, and I am optimistic that my hard work combined with the excellent training I am seeing at WA will help me achieve my goals.

Thoughts of being able to work from anywhere in the world, and not having to clock in 50+ hours per week are appealing, but for now I am content to start slowly, and see if I can start to pay my bills from my WA adventures starting with the smallest one, and then moving up the list until all my bills are paid through my WA efforts. I truly enjoy reading the posts from those that have seen success working with WA, and I plan to join the ranks of those that have "made it"!

If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am new here, and new to the online business platform, but I have many years of business experience that I hope can help others and myself along our journey together in WA!

These are great starter goals. I would suggest setting aside some time rather than saying every extra moment. It will prioritize your goals that way. Let me know how I can help.

So awesome Aaron, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Congratulation on upgrading to Premium! You have begun a journey that will change your life.
Just remember, life is filled with situations where we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ decision. If you run, you’ll have to face the same fight again. You want to change your life? You have to fight for it. But take heart – you are in good company! Don't give up!
One mistake that I made as a newbie at WA was posting the link to my site in my profile and in comments. I was looking for feedback on my progress but I have since learned that this is a no-no. I was not aware that I was breaking the rules and I wish that someone had told me right up front. So, for your convenience, I have included a link to the rules about spam in this welcome message: I am also including a URL to a thread where it IS OK to post your URL’s and ask for feedback.

I hope this will help you and prevent any problems for you as you move forward.
Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.
Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask

You are welcome. Just remember: I felt overwhelmed at first too! Information overload! Take your time. Ignore all the stuff you don't understand yet, just concentrate on the training and things will come into focus.
This may come in handy for you: Just take it slowly; it was the turtle that won the race, not the rabbit. Baby steps forward, my new e-friend.
