I was made to create, and the feeling is great. Watch me as I fill up my plate and it straightens my FAITH with His mercy and His grace. It's how I escape the chaos in this awful hateful world, I find myself in a better place when I'm with my LORD.

We were made to create, we were made to be great, we were made to do our best and walk straight. So I make no mistake when I say, with all of our blemish you and I were created in HIS image.

Infinitely, intimately and creatively designed by the divine, to be distinguishably different from the rest. Please, God, forgive us of our sins and help us do our best.

About Me

I'm LeNard Simmons; I started building my first real website in March of 2015, I named it seconds2work.com. I was completely clueless. I say real because I really started back in 1993, but I never stuck with it.

What was my biggest mistake starting a website? I'll say, I was not properly preparing myself at start up, and jumped in without really researching anything about owning a website. There's a lot involved even in the start-up phase of running a website. That's why I'm building s4c.seconds2work.com. I'm praying we can network and help each other discover a few things

I'VE BEEN BUSY
Over the last 18 months, I managed to obtain knowledge on how to read and write in HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, and many other markup languages. I've discovered the art of website design and have a better understanding.

I learned how to create a Wordpress website theme from scratch, how to make a blog post look different from the rest of my website pages, while the other pages remain the same. A lot of the easy stuff I learned here at Wealth Affiliate; cropping images, using widgets, embedding videos and so much more. I even wrote a few tutorials. Just to get me started.

I learned over 90% of the knowledge I'm going to share with you just by researching the Internet. There were times I spent hours studying, even days without sleep, learning what's working and what to stay away from. I gather a list of resources that I'm going to be sharing with you here at Wealthy Affiliate and my personally owned websites;

First Website March 2015
seconds2work.com (Your Smart Guide to Internet Success) was started by me out of greed and it shows.

Second Website April 2017
s4c.seconds2work.com (How to Make Your Own Free Website) Sites4Christ Website Creation Tutorials

Third Website Coming Soon
Sites4Christ.com (What is the Word of God?) Coming Soon The Creation Video

More To Come
I will be giving you more details about these projects in the future post as I grow, I hope you will follow my progress and grow with me. Until next time, may God bless you in all the good you do.

Leave your thoughts and question about this project in the discussion down below.

Hello to all,


My name is LeNard and I'm here to testify.

I'm here to testify how the Lord has allowed our paths to cross. How He has given me a second opportunity to implement into my seconds2work business. Let me tell you a little about me.

I'm 49 years young. That picture of me is two years old. I'll update it in a day or two, really not that much of a change. but anyway, as I was saying.

I land my first job in 1982, as a fast food cook. Loved cooking, but the paychecks were weak $7000/yr. Gave them five years. I still thank God for it. I had to move on.

After five years and nothing to show for it, I decided to start my own window washing/janitorial service for local businesses. I didn't have a car so I walked or took public transportation to service my customers. Yep, me and my tools, on the bus and I was loving it. First-year income $20,000, brought my first car. Over the next 5 years, I averaged $58,000/yr in income. Not bad, I thanked God.

It was August 23, 1992, and Hurricane Andrew had his eye on South Florida. I sold my janitorial services and became a Storm Chaser. Very Good, Thank you, God.

I volunteered for six months with The Salvation Army. I was responsible for re-building over 150 hurricane/storm damaged homes and transportations. I was almost completely out of money and about to go back home to Chicago when The Salvation Army hired me with a five-year contract. $70,000/yr. God allowed my cup to overflow here. Thank you, God.

The five years that I was with The Salvation Army were full of God's blessing. I learned what it meant to minister to someone when they needed it most, thank you, God. I learned how to cook from scratch, for a mass crowd. I even learned how to drive a tractor trailer (18 wheeler), and got married... thank you, God.

After five years with The Salvation Army, I took my newly learned skills and my truck and I hit the road. $120,000/yr. WELL, Let's just say I was a horrible truck driver. I tried to deliver a bridge in New York City, first delivery. My trucking career only lasted for eight-teen months. I lost my trucking company, my wife, the kids, house, and cars. But I still had God.

Fast-forward to the year 2002. That's the year I discovered that I have a Gift. I discovered that I could talk to people about, Jesus. So I prayed over it and I slept on it. I Took a leap of faith and fired my boss, and become a professional salesman.

So I started off by giving away bibles and selling health products. The first commodity I sold was sleep.

If you want to learn how I made close to $87,000 in less than a year selling sleep, then you will have to read my first Blog.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Good morning, LeNard--

Thank you for choosing to network with me. I am going to follow you now, too. Your bio is awesome and inspiring. It is so good to meet you.

You are not alone. We have likely all started our first websites from a greed standpoint; making money is the key to everything-- we think. It is just the way things start out.

We all have learned over time that it can't work out that way. You have to put in the time and the effort, and offer something of value to the people who visit your site--whether it be information about God, or weight loss, or skin care, or shopping frugally. Only when you have given of yourself will you see any kind of return on your investment of time and money.

I look forward to seeing your work around this platform. God Bless!

Thank you, brother Bosco, it nice to meet you. I'm happy to be apart of your network. I will be looking at your site, I do like reading and writing poems. I want to learn how to write Christian poems, any help from you would be welcomed.

As far as my website located at seconds.work.com, it talks about my pursuit to become a professional web designer/developer. I explain my journey, everything I'm going through, what I've learned and how I learn it.

I also create tutorial show people how to do what I've learned. I also let people know that I'm learning all of this on my own. No official designing school, support or encouragement from friends and family, only Wealth Affiliate and strangers have taken an interest in my story.

Thak you for your comments and God bless you

Very good. The Lord giveth and taketh away. Learn and carry on. I have been very fortunate that I have not lost my wife, 37 years married in October this year. But we have lost everything else at least once. We trucked North America for almost 22 years, the last 5 living in the truck.
We will watch for your posts and we are adding you to our following.
God Bless.

Thanks for the follow. It's refreshing to read a story like yours. Your enduring faith in the Lord is inspiring. I.m a born again Christian, but too often try to run my own life, rather than let God direct me. Reading your story reminds me to let the Lord run things and it will be well for my life. God bless you and keep you always.

Follow the Certification training and do the tasks. Don't skip around. Losing focus is usually caused when you don't quite understand something. Use the WA search bar to find additional training when needed.

Know that this is not a race ... it's a marathon. Commit yourself to the long haul.

Good story my brother...I would appreciate your telling me how I can check out your 1st blog (as mentioned in your Bio)... (I've only been on board with WA for 1 week). I'm just learning the internet world...I was just re-born 2 yrs. ago after nearly 50 yrs. of drug & alcohol addiction. Jan. 20th will be 2 yrs. clean & sober for me. Here's one of the scriptures that really helped me: One of my favorite scriptures...Isaiah 9:2 "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned". Have a blessed & prosperous New Year. May God Bless, Dave
