Why I Created this Website
Welcome to “My Stay Home Business”, a website I created to help those who are interested in changing their lives with the help of the internet.
You found this website because, like me, for one reason or another you are looking for a way to make money on the Internet. You did a search and you ended up clicking on a link that brought you to my website.
One of those reasons might have been that you feel like your trapped in a job you don’t like but you stay because it gives you a certain amount of security and it pays the bills.
Maybe you like the work your doing but you would also like to have more freedom and time to spend with your family and friends.
Another reason might be that you’ve had a desire to write a blog about something you’re passionate about. You might be an expert in health and fitness and you want to help others get healthier and fitter. You might have thought about creating a website to do just that.
Your favorite hobby is photography, you know a lot about it and you would like to share your skills and knowledge with others that have the same passion.
Or, maybe, like me, you have suffered some kind of injury. You have recovered but, you don’t know how long you will be able to stay at your current J.O.B.
There is any number of reasons that you may be looking to start your own Online business. Freedom, single mom or dad, retired or moving towards retirement, just need a little extra cash, in College and looking for a way to make extra cash or, maybe you have a handicap that prevents you from working a full-time job.
Freedom, profitability, something rewarding and with purpose, flexibility, portable, something you can do for the long haul and will work around the additional responsibilities you already have so you can live life the way you would really like to. You don’t want to live to work, you want to work to live.
As I said, these are just a few of the many reasons someone like you may be looking at starting your own online business but, your just not sure what it would take to get something like that off the ground let alone how to make it profitable.
Do I think it’s doable?
Absolutely, I believe it’s possible! If I didn’t believe it possible, I wouldn’t be trying to do it myself.
I believe that if you have a passion or interest in something and you want to help others and you get the right training (you know, kind of like being an apprentice)… learning from someone who is already successful, for sure it can be done.
The Internet is a big place and getting bigger every day. In fact, so far in 2018, Google has processed an average of 40,000 searches every second of every day. Would you believe that adds up to more than 1.2 Trillion searches a year?
There are many, many people who had the same dream to start their own online business and are very successful. If they can do it, so can you. All you need are the right tools, a website, some hard work and you can do it too.
A Little About Myself
Hi, my name is Wayne, I’m 69 years young and trying to gain independence from the rat race, add a little extra to my retirement and gain freedom for my wife and I to do the things we would rather do than work while at the same time help others to do the same.
So what led me to the idea that I might be able to make money on the internet?
Well, like many of you, all I had ever done on the INTERNET was a search for information on a subject or, occasionally, I bought something from Amazon. I had never actually given any thought to doing something online myself let alone thoughts of making a living. However, three years ago that changed.
I was a spray finisher working for a kitchen cabinet shop. For the most part, I enjoyed my work. I was contributing to the dreams of people that were building new homes for their families.
Long story, short… I hurt my back pretty good and was not able to go back to my J.O.B. for almost three months. I spent the first three to four weeks walking around bent over and the only relief I got was when I was sitting.
During that three months, I started to wonder if I would be able to do my J.O.B. anymore because it entailed a lot of heavy lifting.
I know this is a bit long but, hang in there, The pain will be over soon, LOL
As I mentioned, I was working in a custom kitchen cabinet shop at the time and I knew I wouldn’t be able to do the heavy lifting anymore.
As it turned out, I went back to work in another position and because of circumstances, was eventually let go.
The ironic thing about that situation was that within the next 3-6 months they called me 3 times to see if I would come back and work in a less physical aspect finishing the cabinet doors.
My wife and I had already made the decision that I would not return to that work and for most of that year, I didn’t work at all until I took a part-time J.O.B. at Walmart.
It was during that period I started looking seriously online for ways to make money. I found some survey sites, joined a few and quickly discovered that wasn’t going to do it.
I found a few sites that promised quick results but I was skeptical and I later found out that I had good reason to be.
During my search, I also found several reviews about a training program called Wealthy Affiliate (WA), a platform that promised to teach me everything I needed to build a profitable website.
I also found a couple of reviews that weren’t very complimentary of the platform but, WA had a free 10-day membership so I joined and had a good look around and discovered that the positive reviews were right and those negative reviews?, well… I think some people just have to be negative or don’t fully understand.
All this happened around this time of year and I’m now starting my 4th year as a member. Retirement is coming up next Spring and I will be able to dedicate more time to making this work and helping others do the same.
I want to be honest with you. I’m not making a lot of money yet but, that is on me, not Wealthy Affiliate. The platform is everything it says it is and if you follow the training and do the work, you CAN be a success. If you want to learn more just
My Goal For This Website
My goal for this website is to help you discover that you can do it too. You don’t need any experience to start your own online niche website, Wealthy Affiliate will teach you all you need to know. I had absolutely no experience when I started and I’m still learning little by little.
There is a lot to learn but if you stick with it, push through the hard stuff and don’t quit, you will succeed and you CAN get to the point of living the life you dream of but, it will take work.
