About ClintKropp
Joined April 2018
Hello, my name is Clint and I joined WA in an attempt to create a second stream of income in the hopes that someday it could potentially become a primary source of income. With the constant stress of so many different factors, I feel that there is no better time to get something up and running.

The cost of living is skyrocketing in my region and is causing generational displacement just like what we witnessed up and down the east coast major cities over the past years. The economy is booming and the job market has never looked so promising in my region. However, I just feel as if while others are starting to really feel comfortable that I should really be focusing on my second income stream and get this kicked off.

I have worked in technology my whole life and much of that has been customer service. My skill seems to be taking complex geekish, nerdish language and converting it to everyday language. I am willing to jump in and help as much as I am able to. Answering questions force me to learn new things. In order for me to answer it, I have to walk through the steps myself to offer a reproducible result as an answer.

I used to play with programming from 8 years old until almost 30 years old. Played with affiliate marketing programs back in the early 90s prior to Amazon being a thing. Had an idea for an online bookstore and had my sources for supply chain figured out and had just started trying to build the website when life took a turn and I had to re-focus on my just starting our family.

After all these years affiliate marketing is still going strong. In fact, it is stronger than it has ever been. I am more of a command line programmer, however, that is so rusty after all these years I do not think I can say I am able to even really code now. I really do not enjoy it that much anymore anyway, so. As far as WordPress I am still at a beginner level so any and all suggestions here are welcome.

It is really great to have such a supportive community here. Please remember your questions in the main chat are extremely helpful for me. Sometimes I can answer them back other times I get distracted by figuring it out and stumble upon new challenges and never get back to try to answer them. Either way please ask it helps us all learn and grow.

Some of the questions have not come up for me yet as I have not been able to complete all of the training. So they give me an insight into what to expect next. The training offered here by the community for the community is a huge bonus.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to get to know you more as we walk on this journey together. Remember to do something each and every day to further YOU! Maybe it is self-care day, maybe it is to see how many quality posts you can do? Just dedicate a bit of time each day for YOU.

I really struggle to give myself the best 10% of each day to me. After mapping it out my employer gets that benefit. My days off might see a couple times with my best 10% for me, other times I am so worn down that resting is what ends up happening.

Cheers and see you on the front lines!
ClintKropp's Goals 3
Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
$50,000 per year would replace my current job. However, would not allow me to purchase a new home in my area.
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
Enough to purchase a home. $185,000 or more per year.
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
10% of my day with my full time job cutting heavily into my 4 day work week makes me have to really step up on my days off. I have been trying to do this now and going past this amount is rough on family time. My job is getting in the way a lot.

I would love to be able to relocate to a slower pace. The big city is not my thing anymore. Gotta get some related projects knocked out of the way and then really work on getting this rolling.

Thanks. I am really needing to get this rolling. My job may not be around very much longer. If I have to get another one it will only distract from this not help it.

Thanks for the offer to help. Might have to ask a few questions. I am a computer tech guy so anything I can offer to help with. Except all the new web platforms. I was doing that back in the day. Took to much time off and struggling to retrain.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
