About DESIDAC
Joined June 2014
Hi WA! I am 44 years old and a happily married father of three children. Two older boys and my youngest a girl (ranging from the ages of 10 and 3 years old). I have worked in the Automotive Maintenance Automation business for 18 years. I am currently off work due to stress health issues due to the hours and amount of stress of my job.

I truly believe that this WA university can teach me and guide to launching an internet based business so that I can live a better life with my family. I no longer want to spend 80% of my life in a plant not seeing the people that I love and should be with 80% of the time.

Something is terribly wrong with that and I am hoping with hard work at WA I can accomplish that.

Thanks,

Desmond (DES)

Hello. Welcome to the WA community. :) You have a very beautiful family & it's evident that you would like to be able to spend as much time with them as you can & create a better life for them as well. Those are very admirable goals.

It's estimated that the average person spends a third of their life working & another third of their lifetime sleeping. Time is truly a precious commodity that we can't afford to waste. You've made some very valid points & I'm inclined to agree with you. We devote far too much of our time working; a third of our lives does seem excessive. Something is terribly wrong with that.

I wish you the very best of success with your new online business venture & I sincerely hope that your dreams of being able to spend more quality time with your family become a reality. Take care!

Welcome DESIDAC, I"m sure you have a wealth of knowledge that you can find a way to share here at WA. Work with developing your site and think a niche you can apply the many things you know then share this with others. This is one of the best sites to build a business with all the help and guidance bar none can compare.

Welcome to WA just the same, yes I know where you're coming from.After my husband retired from the Army he went into business fixing cards for a living he was gone all the time the children and I hardly ever saw him.it was a very stressful job especially when customers failed to pay,I was in a daycare business, ministry took me on the road a lot as well. I loved the kids and teaching and so forth.After the daycare went to 24/7 because my main clients were the military troops and I had to turn it loose because I was working so many long hours and no time for doing the stuff i wanted. I also couldn't do much family things we hardly saw each other.We saw our health falling apart.So I'm glad you found WA and learn plently so you can take care of the family the ways you desire and spend lots of time with your children they grow so fast these days. Thanks for the follow and we are returnung that love right back your way,

DESIDAC Premium
Very true! But to be honest with you I would rather find another niche altogether. The auto industry almost killed me so I have 2 other niches I am working on. Texas Holdem Poker which I have played for over 8 years and the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey franchise. So yes I am sick of that. Did it for 18 years of my life and I need a new chapter in my life.

Thanks Wes!

Thanks for the kind response Jodi. It's really the only way to live. Why have a family if we are never able to be with them. It is just so wrong!

Michael I noticed that one of you interests in the Forex day trader. It is also something that I would also to start part time with online affiliate marketing. I hope that I can learn from you so that some time in the near future I can also add to my income streams.

So nice to have met you and lets keep in touch.

Hello Des, your story is so familiar to so many of us. You are at the right place from what I am told to help you make your dream come through of financial and time freedom. May the very atmosphere of the community help your body to heal as your stress level goes down.

Saying that I know for myself the thought of building a website may well cause me stress!! But it will be short lived as I am told it takes seconds to build one here.

Desiring you success and physical restoration. I have followed you.

Hi EJ,
Thanks so much for the kind and supportive message. It means a lot when others understand my story. My story has much more to it. I was on stress leave due to severe harassment and toxic environment with the addition of working inhuman hours for years. I have been in a legal battle with my employer for over a year now to have this type of behavior and environment stopped. I will never go back and have healed a great amount mentally and physically in the last year. I have had the best summer of my life since being a father and look at life in a very different way now. I need to live life on my own terms and not some tyrants forcing me to do what they want and degrading me so that they can look good.

I want to thank you again TJ for your time in reading my profile and commenting and in turn following me.

We are connected now so please keep in touch so that we can monitor each others progress.

Lets start a new chapter in our lives and make this new opportunity work. Lets make it happen!

DES

I may hold you to that Des! Glad to hear the worst is over and you are recovering mentally and physically, and you have a very positive outlook for the future. Good on you!
You know Des, in the future, you may be grateful, (not for the suffering), but that unpleasant event caused you to look in a different direction that has taken you to the place where you are now, joyfully looking forward for a better life. This may not have happened if your work situation was 50% better and you probably could never earn anything near as a successful on line business, (to come) can generate.

Bless you.

EJ

I finally am living Elizabeth. It has taken my 18 years to realize that I was not living and the last 2 years almost killed me. I am happy that something bad happened for me to realize that I was living in misery. Lets make this happen and live life in our own terms.

But I am hitting the training really hard right now because the kids are back in school so I can concentrate on getting by online business going. Keep working and we will catch up soon.

Hello Desmond. Stress is never pleasant is it mate ? I too worked ridiculous hours and felt that I lived at work, which is no good for anybody. Now I'm free of that burden, like you and many others, I'm keen to make inroads into the remarkable facilities and friendships at Wa. Best wishes to you and your loved ones.

Thanks for the supportive response Alastair. The life I lived before was not a life. I am now living and am so eager to start my new chapter in my life. I have recovered and have had the best summer of my life.

Reading your profile, I definitely agree. I'm at work 9 hours a day, another hour is driving. I don't really see my wife and kid in the morning, so that's about an hour there, and I guess I need to sleep(7ish). So that leaves about 5-6 hours a day for the wife and kid. And really, I only get about 2 hours with my son before he goes to bed. I definitely don't like that we get the least amount of time doing what we want and being with the people that matter most. I've been feeling the stress at work too, and that can be dangerous for a person. Both mentally and physically.

Good luck with your WA endeavors. I've been a web guy for 13 years, and now it's time to get this marketing thing down and start making money so I don't have to work my life away. I don't mind working or working hard, I put in 70 hours last week.... But, eventually that's gonna catch up with me, and it's not sustainable. I want my efforts to be longer lasting.

And, sorry for the life story on your profile page. haha. I just can't agree with you more about what you said above.

Hi Chris,
I want to thank you for taking the time to write me such a heart felt response. You have no idea how good that makes me feel when others understand, agree and are going through the same feelings and troubles with how companies are taking advantage of good people by working them to the ground physically and mentally. I had the best summer of my life so far being home with my 3 kids for the 1st time as a parent. I soaked in all the fun and happy emotions we had all summer. We did all kinds of things together this summer as you can see on one of my blogs.

I am ready for a new chapter in my life and my outlook about life has changed dramatically because of what I went through the last couple of years.

Talk to you soon Chris and thanks again for believing and supporting what I am feeling and going through.

Welcome to WA! I agree family is more important. So far, I've learned a lot in a week from a lot of people. They really are there if you just as and believe me, I've asked some common sense questions, lol. Good luck to you here! I'm pretty new but if I can help in any way, let me know. I just set up my first website. It's not up and running or close to it but I finally found a name and a wordpress theme. Now back to more training.
