Hello to any and all that may be checking out my profile :)

My name is Chris, and this is a quick description as to my reason for joining Wealthy Affiliate. I used to work in an office, and I was making about $32,000 per year which isn't a bad salary in today's economy. The problem, however, was that where I worked was loaded to the brim with politics and backstabbing. I stayed as long as I could (5 1/2 years), but in the end I simply couldn't deal with it any longer. Especially considering that the national average salary for doing what I did was based around $64,000 per year, and each and every year I went without any raise even large enough to tell anyone about. Pretty sad. I decided that I had to do something different.

I took what money I had established in my retirement, and paid for a truck driving school to get my CDL, with the intention of going out driving. From everything I researched, the simple math of it was that it would have been difficult to make less than I made at the office job. I completed the program and was all set to get out there, when we realized at home that we really didn't want for me to be away from home for weeks at a time. So again, I've entered into a scramble to find a new direction. I live in a small town, so options are pretty much nil. Moving isn't an option either, because my folks live here and that was the reason I moved back to town in the first place. In addition, my other half helps take care of her mom as well.

Another primary reason I would love to start earning income from home, and hopefully enough of it, is so that I can do more for my daughter Krista. I get tired of living paycheck to paycheck, and not effectively being able to do much at all. My goal: Take action and change that. Thanks to Patty for making me realize I forgot to add this into my profile!

After doing some quick researching, I came across Wealthy Affiliate, and I've been blown away by how much is offered here. When it comes to an online community, I've never seen one as helpful and motivating as the members here!

For anyone who has also joined forces here at Wealthy Affiliate, I wish you all the best and hope things work out just as great for you as I do for me.

Sure thing :) The web site is actually just that, www.Snikees.com. I actually also own www.Snikies.com and www.Shnikies.com, which all end up on the main site. I changed the site to simply recommend adding it to the favorites. I hope this helps :)

I wanted to get some content posted today, but wound up working on the other site throughout the day. Tough to get enough time for content for everything lol

Interesting, it's working ok for me, but that might point to it being something that only works with certain browsers. I think I'll reword it, and go that route instead of a link just to make sure the page is consistent and doesn't appear broken.

Hi Chris, sounds like you've had a few "bumps in the road"while trying to find a good fit for you and your family. You mentioned in the comment you left on my profile page that we share a common interest with wanting to get more for our little ones. Do you have kids too?

I'm glad you finally found WA. I think it's a perfect for us that need to earn some extra income yet still be accessible to our families.

Here's wishing us both fantastic success!

Patty :)

Hello Patty! Yes, I have a 4 year old daughter here, that I really want to be able to do more for. I didn't even realize I didn't type that out in my profile, so thank you :D

I agree with you completely, and cheers to both of us taking action and getting that success!

Hi Chris. Thanks for following me back.

I've just looked at your website again and read your post about websites needing to look good on mobile devices. Great reminder. (I don't normally look at the internet on a mobile phone and don't have a tablet, so hadn't even thought about this - thank you for pointing it out.... - you've helped at least one person with your website :-))

Hi Chris. I just saw the comment you made concerning the new blog-zing site. I so agreed with your comment that I had to look you up. And I am amazed. After just a few days here you already have a website up that looks pretty good to me. You've clearly made a great start and I hope that this latest direction in your life will work out.

Thank you very much Isabella! I'm glad to see I wasn't completely off base there. Thank you for the kind words regarding my site as well. To be honest, it still isn't turning out to match my vision, but it's a new work in progress. I'll be refining it to focus on an even more specific niche very soon, plus I obviously need to add much more to it lol
