About Cbakker
Joined August 2019
Hello WA! I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UNR, am a trained CMRP Reliability Engineer at a gold mine, and I am a weekend handyman/inventor/tinkerer on the weekends at home. I am born and raised in good ol' Nevada, raised on the family farm where my dad taught me how to work hard until it hurts, then keep going.

I began my adventures in eCommerce a few years after landing a job in the gold mining industry, about 2015. Tired of living paycheck to paycheck, I wanted to pick up a side hustle in 3D printing with the printer I acquired from an investor (thanks Grandma!). I have always been fascinated with 3D printing, and coupled with my skills in CAD and engineering, it seemed a good fit. I built a shop on Etsy, optimized SEO through Etsy Rank, and started making and selling custom items I designed and printed. Before I could optimize the store, I began a company with a family member to design, build, and sell a wildland fire fighting unit that is revolutionary to the industry. It was a fun experience learning the patenting process and being involved in designing such a unique and helpful product, but conflicts of interest forced me to back out from the business.

As I sit here now updating my profile description, I was led to Wealthy Affiliates through lots and lots of google searching, trying to find the best way to make money online. One thing led to another, and now I am extremely excited to learn all that I can about online business and being successful at it. The wealth of knowledge here is exactly what I need, and have been looking for, to pick up where I left off.
