Hi there,
I’m Derin, and I’m 50 years old, been married to my wife, Carrie, for almost 24 years, and we have 3 teenage children, Katie (18), Mason (17), and Lyndee (14).
We live in beautiful Eastern Washington State, northwest of Spokane, in a little town called Deer Park.

I am privileged to serve in a local church as a staff pastor overseeing the music ministry, and helping people grow in their faith in Jesus Christ by helping them to praise Him through music. It is truly a privilege and a joy.

My wife is a nurse by training, and has been able to stay at home to raise our kids for most of our married life. Recently, she re-entered the nursing field, only to be injured and end up with a permanent disability that prevents her from hospital nursing anymore. She also has had about 4 concussions in the last 5 years, and the cumulative effect of these head traumas has decreased her capacities quite a bit. She is still a very strong and capable woman, but these things have definitely taken their toll on her and our family.

We recently moved off of our 5 acre farm, to a home in a neighborhood, because we just couldn’t take care of and afford the bigger place anymore.

I love to create and play music on the piano, love to travel and explore new places, particularly in the mountains and surrounded by beautiful and scenic countryside. I also love the game of golf, and thoroughly enjoy being on the golf course, although I’m not the greatest golfer! I just love the ins and outs of the game, and enjoy all that surrounds it.

I’m looking into Wealthy Affiliate for the 2nd time...I explored it about 5 years ago, and did not get very far. My hope is to be able to pursue it as a hobby for a while, learning and growing, and hopefully one day to create a little more income for my family. I’m not out to be a millionaire, but I love the culture I sense that exists in this group of online entrapeneurs. I love to help people too, so as I potentially get involved and am helped by others, I would welcome the opportunity to help others in return.

Thanks for opportunity to share a bit about myself.

5 hours a week is good enough. That's almost like attending two MBA classes per week!

Wish you complete your goals ASAP. But I'd recommend setting more measurable goals. "Anything"="nothing"... unfortunately. $5K/month till December 31, 2018 - that's a measurable goal.

Really appreciate it, Kyle. I’m hopeful that I can become a premium member soon and work that into my family budget. Cut a couple things here and there, and it’s certainly doable.
Thanks for the support!

Hi Shalisha,
Appreciate the encouragement. Thought I’d post this question to you, since you’re a Top 50 member...
I’m going through the Bootcamp to become a WA affiliate and am choosing a target audience of ‘stay at home Moms or Dads’ who would like to ensure that they can keep one parent at home and not have to pay to send their kids to daycare. How does this sound to you, as a target audience and focus for my business?

I would say that's a great target audience, assuming that you're a stay-at-home Dad yourself. It's my belief you should have a genuine connection with your audience.

Hi,

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner by taking your business to the next level.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,
George
