About Provider27
Joined February 2014
I guess I should start by introducing myself and why I have decided to join WA.
My name is Steve Thompson, actually my real name is Stephan ( Stefan is how it sounds ).
I am 58 years young. I have three children, all girls, that are 24,22 and 21 years old. I have three beautiful grandchildren, all girls, that are the loves of my life.
My children are out of the house. One being married. She lives in Oregon with her two Baby girls. Another is in Vermont living with her boyfriend and my other daughter lives in San Diego with my middle granddaughter. She just ( yesterday) got out of the Navy after a 8 year stretch. I am struggling financially. I am not married and I am renting a room in a house. The room rental is due to my lack of income. Why, you ask am I struggling? Well, I had every penny I owned sunk into a start up business. The business was doing fantastic. Myself and my partner began the company with $120,000. 00 and our first year we made over 2. 7 million in sales. Like I said we were doing very well until it happened. I had a major heart attack and the company quickly fell apart and folded.
To make this short, over the last three years I have been laid up due to a heart condition and have been unable to work leaving me pretty damn broke. Disability pays way less than I used to make with my company.
For the last two years I have been trying to find some type of work online. About a year ago I was introduced to a type of blog program. It took me about 3 months to really know the program and I began making some good money, then, the company I was working for began cutting all the commissions into less than a third of what they were at the beginning. This is the reason I am here, to build a business that is not controlled by greedy people.
I'm very excited about this program and really like the support structure . It's so nice to see. I'm hoping to get to know some of you very soon.

Hey Stephan, I am glad for you that you made it to WA. The reason why I state this is because you will soon see that WA will teach you how to run your own business so not have to worry about working for someone else and be at their whim to cut commissions etc.

Thank you for the follow and if there is anything I can do for you then just feel free to give me a holler.

Thank you Terry for both the comment and for following me.
There is no reason for you to apologize because you did not cause my heart attack (did you ?) lol.
Anyway Things happen for a reason .. I look at it as the opening to another door.
I look forward to watching you, and myself succeed here at WA.

Mentally, I am very good shape so I am ecstatic about that Pderr1234, Now all I have to take care of is my physical body healing and getting my financial woes in check.
The doctors are doing their jobs with the physical healing and now I can see a bright light at the end of the tunnel through this family.
I am very enthusiastic about WA and can see that it could really bring my financial issues to a end in the next year or two.
Thanks for your kind words. I hope to talk to you more in the near future. :)
