What Does the Above Statement Mean?
The above words were written by Dave Ramsey, one of many successful entrepreneurs having blazed a trail to personal and financial success beginning with online marketing. He is one of many who struggled profusely in his early days trying to get out of the “rat race.” I have made these words my motto and I proudly display them. This is my story and how this phrase means the world to me.
From the time I was in grade school, I could not conform to the normal routine. I had fair grades, but due to my early upbringing, very roughly treated by my father and not well-understood by my mother. I was not properly prepared to meet the world and was severely taunted by the other students and home life wasn’t much better. However, I became very fascinated with the hippie folks of the time and learned much from them. This is where it all started for me.
Employment was worse than school for me. It was monotonous, not to mention, extremely boring. The workdays were much longer than school days. The type of jobs I held, in lieu of not being properly prepared for it in school, I could not interact with “red neck” -type folks. Being in low-paying jobs, the income ceiling was always very low. In time, the hippie involvement faded away into the past and I began to search for alternatives to working in factories, construction, and other labourious, low-paying positions.
Even when I was very young, I never relished the idea of being like everybody else. I did not like the position I was in and, unlike most people, knowing there had to be some other way, long before I heard that quote above, I set out on my journey. I had no idea where I was going. I just started going…
Entrepreneurship, the Internet, and Determination
Beginning in the late Spring of 2004, after having been on the Internet nearly since the WWW began, I stumbled into the online business realm. One of the epochs of my life entailed living in the woods in Maine for nearly a decade. This took me away from the world of television and in time I became attuned to being able to see behind most advertising.
My later studies in Logic and Argumentation confirmed many of my suspicions about commercial advertising. This would continue to intensify to such a degree that today, I can smell a rat in most of the Internet advertising we see today. Over the course of my Internet experiences, I learned much about how people are wired and how so many things are stacked up against the “consumer.”
I created this website for two reasons: To show that there are other ways to derive an income than working in a boring job out of desperate need. To point to alternate means and do what I can to divert others’ paths towards entrepreneurship.
Who I Am Today
I still don’t watch television. I spend my time studying things that have a strong impact on empowerment. I take freedom very seriously and worked hard for it. I have not been “gainfully” employed (if there is really such a thing) since 2010. Instead, most of my living comes from the Internet thanks to an extremely unusual and like-minded community I joined at the beginning of that same year.
If you’ve found this page and know there must be another way to make a living, I would like to connect with you. I enjoy helping others and making a difference in other people’s lives. If you’ve tried online programs in your attempt to free yourself from a bovine boss and the same rat race every day, I can truly help you out. At this point, I’m not rich, but what I do is working and from years of having to find all this out on my own without a guide, until I joined that community, the fact that I won’t ever have to worry about employment again is becoming reality.
I’m here to help you and this is why this site is here. It does far more than any job I’ve ever had has ever done. I’ve already helped a lot of people just by talking to them and point them to programs that truly have excellence and lots of value. It is also my bread and butter. If there is any way I can help you start your journey away from the unsatisfactory position you now find yourself, I want to hear from you.
Please leave a message below. I will always answer and any comment that is serious and about going to the next level. I know how it feels to be trapped in a position I’d rather not be in. I know others share in this sentiment.
