Hi Everyone,

My name is Stacie. I am a single widowed mother. I have one daughter, she of course is the center of my universe.

I currently live in Poncha Springs, Colorado, I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

I wound up in Colorado after meeting my husband in Tuscon, Arizona over 25 years ago. We migrated to Colorado for many personal reasons.

We have lived in a few different mountain towns including, Fairplay, Salida, Breckenridge, and Poncha Springs. I am begining to feel like a Colorado native now.

I have been a bartendar, waitress, dishwasher, prep-cook, sue chef, and head chef over the years of living here.

I am currently a grill cook, and the leader of my shift at a busy little mountain town restaraunt. I don't feel irreplaceable by any means, it is a restaruant after all.

A few years back I decided I was getting a little old for keeping up at such a pace, so I took a college course for graphic design. I got my associates degree, and found that most companies really want a bachelors degree.

I couldn't afford to go back and get my bachelor's degree as my student loans are already too high, increasing them just wasn't a good idea in my opinion.

So I stayed cooking, and looking for something that I would be able to do that would involve my degree possibly, but mainly get me out of the kitchen in the long run.

I came across scam after scam, and then I read my mentor, DenverS.'s blog, about WA and figured I would give it a try. I really wanted something that I could actually do, and possibly find success. And hopefully use my degree at least a little.

My true passion has always been art! I love to draw, that was what inspired me to get my degree.

I never thought I would be designing a website! But reading DenverS.'s blog really pushed me in the right direction.

I figured why not, WA gives me 7 free days to see if I like it, then a month at $20 if I do and may want to stay, which I did. Then I made the plunge and went premium. I also took advantage of the BlackFriday deal as well, so I am paid up for 2 years now in WA.

I figured it was definitely time to update my profile from just a sentence or two about myself. After all it has been almost four months now.

"I am bright, energetic, and eager to create my online business. I have the passion and drive to be successful." -This is my original profile post, short and sweet lol.

I have learned a great deal here so far, and even though my training is complete (not bootcamp), I am still learning new things every single day! I am glad I have two years to focus on my path here.

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.

Take the lessons in order (don't skip around), do the tasks for each and ask for help if you get stumped (or just want advice). That's the formula for success. Follow it and you'll be amazed by what you achieve! You can do this!
