Just Upgraded to Yearly!

Last Update: November 27, 2015

Yay, go me. XD

Hey everyone, I just got back from a long hiatus...too long in fact. I kind of gave up on my online business because, well, I felt like I was putting a lot of work into my site, and I wasn't seeing any results...or better yet I wasn't being patient. I also felt overwhelmed with trying to absorb all this information, which contributed to my mental breakdown.

The funny thing is, I knew this would happen at some point, and I knew that I should press on, no matter how hard things got...I even said it on the articles on my website...But, I didn't listen to my own advice. I let my self doubt, frustration, and mental obstacles get the best of me. I essentially gave up on my dream.

Who knows where I'd be if I just kept up with the training? It's so frustrating to think about all the progress I could have made, but lost, because I put everything on the back burner.

I'm a little frustrated with myself...can ya tell? Ha.

Anyways, here's an update on my life. I got laid off last month after my company got bought out by a bigger firm. I was hired on for almost 3 months and decided to get rid of my position (my old boss got let go too). With nothing holding me down in Florida, I finally moved to Washington state. Not exactly how I wanted to cross the finish line, but at least I'm reunited with my son, so I have that. Now that I'm unemployed, I'll be on the job hunt for..who knows how long.

To be perfectly honest, although I presently don't have an income, I'm really enjoying the time freedom I have right now. I don't have to put up with the stress from commuting, deadlines, meetings, irate/computer illiterate users, blah, blah, blah...I've been able to spend a lot of time with my son, and I love it!

I told my old boss many months back that I wanted my former employer to be the last company I ever work for. I want to make that dream a reality.

I know that limbo state very well.

Your son is probably the happiest kid on earth right now.

You made a bold and brave move for yourself and I know it won't be in vain.

Blessings, and look out world...someone is taking a stand for themselves!

Ask all those questions you need to any minute of any day.

I shied away from that of first (shy is a word that's NeVeR been used to describe me!)

Trust me....ask those questions ; )

~ rowdy prosperous blessings Chris!

Hey Fyre!

I've been culling my network because so many people have left. It's sad. :( But I'm glad to see you're still around!

Yeah he's really happy right now, as am I. I've missed him so much.

Thanks for the words of encouragement! It's nice to see you.

I've also quit many times before Christopher. It's actually a good process because it helps us come back stronger. I'm glad to hear you're close to your son again and I know you'll make this business work for you!

Thanks Vitaly. I really want to make this work, but at the same time it seems so daunting. I have a lot of internal struggles I have to take by the reins... -_-

I'm not trying to whine, just venting, lol.

Oh, and be prepared. I'm going pick your brain...a lot. XD
