My name is Kris Jacobs and I am a 29 year old married father of 2 amazing daughters. I have been managing a direct sales office for almost 4 years now, and I'm ready for the next step in my life that will allow me to spend much more needed time with the wife and kids.
I used to work in construction and general labor, like most the population here does, and I found myself away from home almost 75% of the time. I would work out of town Monday through Friday, be back at home by almost midnight friday night, and would have to be back on the road by 4 AM monday morning in order to be on site by 8. I found myself missing out on all of my oldest daughters "firsts". First steps, first words, first birthday, yup I missed it all. Then I decided to bite the bullet and change professions. I got into direct sales where I made a pretty decent income, and as such was promoted to General Manager of Operations almost 4 years ago.
Still today I find myself in the same position I was almost 4 years ago, all day every day at the office, away from my family. Hence why I'm here today, hopefully to start something that will allow me to work from home, and be there for my family when they need me the most.
So looking forward to what WA has to offer, and can't wait to meet all of you!
