Hello everyone. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 25 years. We live in a small East Central Missouri town, with our teenage son and our twelve year old second son, Rocky our Westie dog. I have a simple life, with simple dreams and goals. I hope to find them through WA, with your help.
I currently telecommute to work each day, as a Network Support Analyst contractor for a fortune 100 company. I am fortunate to have a fairly decent job, in the IT field of choice that I trained for.I don't pretend that job security is a foregone conclusion, just because I have a college education and a current job.
I have lived through several recessions in my lifetime, never really being prepared to thrive and take care of myself, or my family the way I needed to. This is one of my main motivations for looking for a way to become more financially independent, by developing a second stream of income.
I would like to be able to save back that 6 months to 1 year of emergency fund income, that over half of Americans are not able to save. I would also like to eventually become immune to the worry of layoffs and corporate cutbacks.
I have tried several "get rich" scams, and other business opportunities in the past, and failed just as many of you have. I will do my best to learn from all of you. I plan to follow the path toward success, that all of you have paved in the past, and the present. Thank you all for affording me an opportunity to strive for personal greatness.
