I got started online several years ago after first reading Robert Kiyosaki's book, "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and then later found Dave Ramsey. Both men inspired me and opened my eyes toward dropping the scarcity mentality I had in the past. I've had a lot of trial and error since then.
Most people go through life accepting limits. Our culture, for way too long, did not point people toward developing a business and building financial freedom and time freedom into our lives.
Needless to say, there is quite a bit of trial and error, but to get to the other side of that means step by step, actionable training. I've tried different things. Wealthy Affiliate has that training and we have to follow it and then give ourselves and the system some time.
Fast forward to now and I've learned quite a bit about myself and working online. I have encountered different view points on nearly every aspect of making money online. The key is listening to those who have what we want, and I'm at the point that I want to learn to leverage websites.
I don't see this as a hype site at all. I have decided there is way too much hype on the internet though. There is no need for any hype. Passion and enthusiasm, yes, but not hype.
The truth is enough.
My profile, my brand, will simply be about developing a skill set and helping others when I can.
