New to the site - and looking forward to a prosperous stay!
I've been online, buying and selling, since before eBay went public. I've tried to develop an affiliate income, and can never seem to keep the process moving forward. It feels like this might be the place - because it looks to make all of those things I've been trying to do on my own are all one place and neatly spelled out!
After working in the corporate world for quite some time, I had a few eye opening life events that prompted me to stop and pause, look at what life is all about and to follow where my journey takes me. It has not been easy, but it is always rewarding. I realized I was not a good corporate soldier on 9/11. I was a VP at a Pittsburgh bank. As we were watching the horrific events on TV unfold, many of us were in shock. At the time, the plane that later crashed just outside of Pittsburgh was unaccounted for. A good friend with reliable info, called and told me to get out of downtown NOW! The final plane was turning and was heading towards Pittsburgh. When I informed my team to leave - they were thankful! However, when I informed my boss of my intent to leave - his response? "Get back to work. We have client accounts to be concerned with". I left the office. Most of my team left the office, so we could be at home with our families. The next work day, we were reprimanded and told to not use business resources such as phones and email for personal reasons during this time. It was those few events and the actions of my company, that changed my life in very dramatic ways.
I am now a real estate investor. An internet entrepreneur. Love photography, auctions and being outdoors. And now attempt to walk the path that I've set with my own code of ethics and conduct. My mantra has become to make a difference everyday. Whether in action, thought, word or deed. Because it really is "all good".....at least for now :)
