A Little About Me

Growing up, I have had the benefit of having two incredible parents in a loving and supportive household with five (now six!) other siblings. (No, that is not a typo) My dad is an amazing man and I credit much of my early ambitions and success to him as he pushed me to pursue my dreams and financial freedom.

My mom is an incredible woman and was my home school teacher from Kindergarten all the way through my high school years. Patient and loving, she was super-mom in the house. My four sisters and two brothers are all amazing, and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

I am now 21 years old, I work full time answering phones at an answering service for companies nationwide. However, it is still a job, and a stepping stone to help me reach what I believe everyone has wanted at some point in their lives...financial freedom.

I have studied different methods to become financially free and have spent innumerable hours learning new niche's and business models. I've researched internet marketing, Real Estate, and numerous ways to generate profit and income.

I have also invested in other passive and active investments, some of which I'm still investing in. It is my goal to reach financial freedom and quit my full time job...maybe you can relate?

I love financial freedom and learning about it. I also inherited a love for teaching from my dad, thus I enjoy imparting information to other people if it helps them in any way.

I look up to a number of successful individuals, namely, Robert Kiyosaki, T Harv Eker and Armand Morin, being authors and educators whose works and teachings I had the privilege to study.

I found their courses and books extremely helpful or inspiring. Each of these individuals achieved financial freedom and wealth with different strategies, consequently, I too believe there is no "right" way to become financially free.

I really do believe that the old saying, "Knowledge is Power", to have some truth in it.
Most if not all the books and material I have read has helped me in some way, shape or form. Be it learning how to manage money properly, investing in vehicles for financial success, to changing my mindset to recognize new opportunities, everything I've learned has helped me get where I am today.

I give special credit to my Life Makeover Coaches who have helped me take action in WA and my other financial ventures over the last 1-2 years. I share my experience with them here:

I have been working on my business within Wealthy Affiliate for over 6 months now and I have written a full review of what I think here:

Greetings, Jacob!

I've gotten a little behind in responding to comments from new followers, so I decided to take some time today to catch up.

A friend of mine introduced me to T. Harv Eker's book, "The Millionaire Mind". He's not only insightful, but very funny. He really knows how to engage the reader by not hesitating from sharing his own... ah... financial mishaps.

Sounds as if you were surrounded by a lot of love, so that makes you a very fortunate young man.

All the best to you and thanks for the follow, Jacob.

Hello there Jacob! Your parents sound like wonderful people. Seven kids is a lot. I speak from experience with 6 boys of my own. I staggered mine though. My first three are all in their 20's and from my first marriage. I got married a second time and had 3 more. Not a girl in sight! Of course, I do have 2 beautiful grandgirls now though. I can spoil them rotten and send them back home!

Your bio is very interesting. I am checking out your website and I look forward to learning more from you. Thanks for the follow and I am certainly following you back!

Hello Jacob,

Thank you for adding me to your network. I have taken a few minutes to read some of your blog posts and one in particular caught my interest "No More Gold Watches-The End of An Age."
A very good post by the way!

You have an astute perception of the ever changing times and how a person's lack of awareness of this matter is a weakness they can't ignore without experiencing negative financial consequences in their life. Yes, you are right, a stubborn attitude or resistance to change will cost you.

What works today has a good chance of being obsolete tomorrow. The proof of this is right before our eyes if we will only look.

To your success,

Steve

Hello Jacob and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hi Jacob, thank you for following me. I will do the same. You sound focused and driven with your goals. It also sounds like you have been blessed with a family that is very supportive which is a jewel in itself that helped to build your self esteem.

Money is just part of the vehicle that helps us build our dreams. Life has its ups and downs that shape us to be stronger people, and with the right attitude we become better human beings. Building moral and ethical character both physicaly and spiritualy along with service to others while building your wealth, makes you a balanced person. Blessings to you on this journey.

Hi Jacob,

Thank you for adding me to your network. I have added you to mine. Loved your bio! "Knowledge is power." I've heard this many times, and I believe it's the "application" of knowledge that truly brings the power. I believe this is evident through the experiences of your studies as you indicated in your bio. You're on a great journey and I wish you great success.

Hi Jacob. When I read your bio, some parts are reminding me of myself. I think I have gigabytes and gigabytes various digital material in my folders, starting with ebooks, pdf reports, videos, website addresses, and others. All from researchers made in the past through a long time.

As you mentioned in your bio, there are many successful marketers out there. Many of them with different approaches to OM (Online marketing), with different products or services, but all of them. actually, are following similar principles and methods.

You mentioned just a few of them. I remember Armand Morin when he came up (a few years ago) with his E-book creator software. It was a very tiny small piece of software. Now, everybody can create beautiful ebooks and such software, are actually not needed anymore.

Just one example how things develop.

I was also trying various opportunities, reading and learning many things about OM.

The thing is that OM (online marketing and making money online field, OMMMOF) is a "čiving and always developing organism" with "solid fundamental ever-living principles" which can be implemented in a present era.

WA is comparing with them sort of different opportunity because of the whole system involved in it.

What I like here at WA is this "all rounded system", the community, tools, services, etc, we have per hand.

I have to commit that it is not easy to sell WA. Maybe because of that the people need first to understand why WA is exceptional.

With WA it is easy to start fast the ON journey, but to capitalize on it and start earning a substantial amount of money, is connected with steady, hard work over a longer period of time.

But, exactly this is a guarantee for a long-term success.

So, I would always recommend WA, because, with the tools, system, the support we have, it is real "working online" matter.

Wish you a lot of success.

Stay focused, determined and the "fruits of success" will grow for you.

Best luck!

Hi Jacob, nice suit and hat. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You're right in what you said, that all those things that earn you money right now, are just stepping stones. I like your perspective, it is admirable for someone at your age to think that way.

Your joining of Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best decisions you've ever made. Trust me, it can even be the best.

Here, you will be operating a business of your own. And not like those businesses that you see out there, ours here is a online business that has a potential to reach global audiences.

As a young man exploring the world of business, here's one thing that I'd like to share with you:

"The best way to reach the top of the ladder is to own the ladder."

Hi:
This is very impressive and inspiring Jacob! At a very young age you already know the ingredients of success. What is more impressive is that instead of complaining about the world you are grateful for what you have learned from the world and that puts you at the top 1% in the whole world. Surely you've got what it takes to succeed! Thank you very much for your following and I will follow you too. I really appreciate your connection and I hope we can continue to share for our mutual success.

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! :)
