About Goofy Ryan
Joined July 2013
Hi there, my name is Ryan. I am 38 and married with two wonderful sons. Blah, blah, blah.

I always hated those descriptions. They don't let you get to know somebody. Seriously though, the above information is true. I am 38 and I do have a wonderful family. That is the problem though. I make a suitable, but not comfortable living. I live in a place I wish I wasn't. I have to travel (business travel, not the fun kind) and work too much. I am not happy but I work too much to do anything about it and I make just enough that it isn't an imperative. It is the dreaded, yet perfect employer/employee equation. Oh yeah, the best part, my older brother is my boss. I don't know how many days I have until my head truly implodes.

That is where my family is the problem. I used to work or at least chase my dream job. It is harder to do that now. I am responsible for more than just me and my two dogs. I need something different. Maybe it will allow me to chase my dream again, maybe my dream will change. I just need something different.

I guess that is where WA comes in. I like to say that I am smart enough that while dabbling online, it would be a lot if I lost $100. Don't often hear that. But, I am also smart enough to know that means I never really tried. I always put in roughly two days of work creating something and just became overwhelmed by all I was attempting to learn and quit. Either that or I bought some program I just knew going in wasn't going to be worth it and I was right when I got there. I always (almost) was smart enough to get a refund in the allotted amount of time. I am part of that 30%.

So far, WA does seem different. It does seem a like a community. I really do look forward to getting to know as many of you as I can. I'm sure the description here doesn't sound like it, but I really am one of the happiest, go lucky people you have ever met. A real Taoist. Honestly, I am a positive person, an optimist. Well, at least a pessimistic optimist.

Feel free to drop me any lines of advice or even one to just say hi. I would like that.
Goofy Ryan's Goals 3
Money Goals
How much money would I like to make? $1. We all got to start somewhere right? How much money would I be ecstatic to make? $75 K a year. Including the extra money I had saved getting there with the extra income, if I were making that I could quit my job and follow my passions full time. I'm thinking this should take a little more than a month. I'm kidding, I read the instructions. Time is the hard part for me. I am up at 1:30 now. I have to be up at 5:30 to start all over again. Long days, trying to find time with my kids. That is my challenge. I have to make sure I stay devoted and put in a little more time than I can even afford.

Hi Ryan,

I'm almost as new to this as you are and just thought I'd say hi as I read your profile and it made me smile. I'm hoping to chase my dreams too. I work for/with my best friend and have very similar head implosion risks on a daily basis.

Good luck with it all, though according to all I've read it shouldn't involve luck

Absolutely, it all starts with that first $1. I know when I started out all I needed for motivation was $1 in revenue. At that point it became real and I have not looked back. You will get there!
