About Thomas27
Joined April 2017
Hello, my family has been in Wisconsin as far back as I can remember. I grew up in Watertown, WI where my parents and two bothers and their families currently live. My wife Debbi and I currently live in the Madison area and are proud to call Madison our home. Between Debbi and I we have 7 children and 10 grandchildren. Throughout the various stages of my life, I have found that no matter how busy life gets, family is most important and I always enjoy the quality time we can spend together.

My favorite time of the year is Fall. I enjoy seeing the change of colors in the trees, feeling the refreshing cool air after a long hot summer, and knowing the Packer and Badger football season is upon us. I also try to get the family together for a cookout or two before the first snow fall makes an appearance. Every Fall I like to visit different parts of the state to see the changing of the season and spend some great time with my wife and kids sightseeing.

One of my other favorite things to do is stay at different B & B’s (Bed & Breakfasts) throughout Wisconsin. I enjoy the hospitality that is offered and the breakfasts have been delicious. Debbi and I can escape the fast pace of life for a weekend and do sightseeing, hiking, cheese and wine tasting, and take in the ambiance of a small town or view of a lake. Debbi and I traveled to New York in Fall 2014, and would like to go back again some time. There is so much to see and do in the city, we really would like to go back and see all the things we missed. What I find most interesting about traveling, is how the locals can point out a tourist in a second, especially in New York. I know as I’m trying to take in the surroundings, enjoy the adventure, and be in the moment, I’m sure I stand out completely. I’m also intrigued by the stories and history of the places I visit.

As an Engineer in my current career, I find myself looking to make a career change after my third serious injury. I am also a licensed Realtor. I am finding out, real estate takes away a lot of family time, which is the exact opposite of what I am looking for. I started to research eCommerce, which seemed interesting and challenging at the same time. As I looked into eCommerce so I can stop trading my time for a paycheck, it appeared a great fit for me. Not only do I get to help people by providing information, great products, or tools to help them be successful to achieve their dreams, I can work towards building a foundation to obtain financial freedom. Which in return allow me to spend quality time with my family, spoil my grandchildren, and would love to have the ability to help those in need in the community as well.

I feel blessed to be apart of this group, and I hope to have the opportunity not only to learn from all of you, but to make some friends along the way. To your success.

Nice to meet you, Thomas!

Thanks for the kind message on my Bio btw. B&Bs; seem to be all the rage these days. I agree with you on being a realtor, it's a ton of time on target to be ready to setup and close deals.

I hope you find all the financial freedom you seek.

Best of luck here and in all of your endeavors!

Thank you for the follow!

I agree on so many counts from your profile. I am already working part-time because of my own health but I want to spend as much time with my family as possible and even hopefully travel to see those who are not in the area. (Which I guess also fits in with my love of traveling).

Good luck to you on this journey. I hope you are successful!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Welcome to WA! Not sure how long your journey has been to get here but I know mine was a long one. Trying many different avenues, sites and ploys to make some money. I've been here at WA for about a month and really do find it enjoyable and helpful with a great community and really good support.

The site I've built following the training is www.preparetoact.org
It's about women safety, products, blogs, etc.... Check it out if you like but understand I'm a novice at website building and it still needs a lot of work.

Any way, I will follow you here and do the same if you'd like to stay in touch and use me as a resource if you think it would be helpful to you.

Best of luck
Chris

I will definitely take a look at your site. My journey in eCommerce has been a short one so far. I have been tinkering with Shopify and Oberlo and researching multiple learning platforms. I happen to find WA today and I am very happy I did.

I tried other avenues to get out of the 9 to 5 as well, real estate and real estate investing to name one. Unfortunately, that turned into a money pit and was a painful learning experience.

Thank you for reaching out and offering to be a resource, I will stay in touch.

To much success
Tom

Hi Tom!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I'm Edward from MasterMyFinance. You signed up through my site so I thought I'll introduce myself. I created my website in mid 2015 and have been working on it using my spare time after work (I'm still holding a full time day job), and I'm currently making a little more than $1,000/mth from it.

I plan to quit day job and focus work online full time when I hit $3,000/mth, and I'm on track for it. As long as you're committed to make this work, you'll succeed online.

To get started, you should upload a picture and write a short description of yourself here: http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile. Treat it as a social website and make friends, because there are a lot of awesome people in this community!

You'll learn a lot here, but for now just focus on the Online Entrepreneur Certification training. Follow the training one step at a time and you'll have your own website up and running in no time.

Now that you are in a legitimate online business community, it's time to stop chasing the rainbows, settle down and learn to make money online the proper way. Talk to you soon!
