About Chad81
Joined June 2016
After graduating high school I went straight into the workforce and took a job at a local factory where I spent the first 14 years of my adult life. As a result, I was in chronic pain and the furthest thing from happy. After being told that I was heading for both back and shoulder surgeries if I didn't make an immediate change, I began looking for new lines of work.

After several years of dead-end jobs with no real hope of advancement, I happened to come across Wealthy Affiliate on an internet "Work From Home" search. I wanted the freedom and flexibility that the standard "9 to 5" simply wasn't offering. I also wanted to have my own business doing something that I was passionate about where I could truly help people change their lives.

My wife and I struggled with debt, discontentment, and a lack of true happiness for nearly 20 years. So we began simplifying our lives, paying off our debt, growing deeper in our faith, serving our community, and have adopted a more simple way of living with far less "stuff" and tapping into our God-given passions and dreams.

Through careful planning, consistent dedication, and a lot of hard work we have been able to pay off over $160,000 in debt and are well on our way to becoming 100% debt free by the end of 2020.

I simply want to share that journey and help others to do the same.

I'm truly thankful to Kyle and Carson for this great program and to the awesome community here at Wealthy Affiliate as it has allowed me to start building my dream business.

My "bootcamp" website overcomingthe9to5trap.com is designed to help people find ways to build a full-time work-from-home business where they can create ultimate freedom in their life. I help people find legitimate ways to make money online, overcome the unexpected challenges that come from working from home, identifying their "end game lifestyle", and removing anything that gets in the way of achieving their goals.

My "mission" website removinganchors.com (Temporarily on hold) is designed to help others follow in my footsteps. It shows people how to overcome financial hardships and debt, simplify their lives, and find ways to build a life that is full of passion, purpose, and excitement that is unencumbered by the typical "anchors" that hold so many of us back, all from a Christ-centered and Biblical perspective.

If you ever need anything, feel free to drop me a private message and I'll help in any way that I can.

I hope the best for you man. I know what its like to have a young family and working your butt off to stay ahead of the wolf. The kids are in college now but you're comment sure did bring up some memories. The wolf is still knocking at my door but he's not quite as scary as when you have a young family to provide and care for. Wish you the best.

Excellent Chad, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Chad! :)

Great job on going Premium! I'm glad you decided to take that next big step because now you have access to all the great training and tools and my most favorite, the live chat. If you ever need help with anything please feel free to let me know. Take care and good luck to you here at WA.

Hey Chad,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Chad and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

We're officially 10 days into your WA experience Chad!

I hope all is well with you and that you're making some really awesome progress in the training so far. Just wanted to reach out to you personally and offer my help and support as well as answer any questions you may have in your first 10 days.

I have also decided to make my Awesome Premium Bonuses available to you once again. This is only if you join within the next 4 days, though. There're quite a few gems offered in this training alone that could give your online business the boost it needs to get up and running.

Anyways, I just wanted to drop by and check up on you and see how things were going for you in your first 10 days Chad. You should also have premium communication back for an additional 7 days so feel free to hit me up whenever you have a question or need a hand with anything.

Hi again, Chad

Ain't it crazy how fast time flies by? I can't believe you've almost been here for a week already can you? So what do you think of everything so far? I hope you have had the chance to go through some of the training and get the foundation of your website in place.

Also, I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow is the last day I'll be offering my Awesome Premium Bonuses. I would hate to see you miss out on this valuable information which has helped hundreds of other people jump start their businesses.

Secure your access by upgrading by tomorrow.

I hope you are rocking it Chad and do let me know if you need a hand with anything or have any additional questions.

I'm here to help!

Hi Chad, Just wanted to check in with you and see how things are going with you today. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know that this is a very important step when getting started here. There is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! Please do keep in touch with me and let me know how you are getting along so far. I like to keep in contact with all my referrals and make sure they are finding their way around the community OK and also answer any questions you might have. Talk to you soon Your Friend Scott
