    Hello everyone,

    I found this site on accident and i am very pleased with what i see so far. I quit my job a few months ago at my wife's request (she was afraid it was putting me in the grave) and have decided to teach myself computer coding and online marketing (i am no stranger to hard grueling work). I have reached the point in my young life (29) that i am no longer going to bust my butt just so my boss can reap the rewards of my ideas labor and hard work. I think you guys are awesome and i cant wait to read more of the golden wisdom of this site. I will do my best once i learn more to help others who are starting as well. Here's to hopefully a long lucrative relationship.

    Good luck.

    One thing I would say (just being realistic) is you won't find many successful entrepreneurs around here who work less than the average 9-5 monkey. If you're prepared to work hard, you'll be fine, but don't expect it to be easier than a regular job (it obviously has a number of advantages, especially if you're successful after a few years), but it is a long, hard grind. I've worked (or am at least available) 7 days a week for the last 3 years - and I know plenty around here who put more hours in than me.

    I am actually excited to work hard for myself i am used to the 6-7 day a week grind. I am more than happy to do it again but this time for me and for hopefully better pay in the end. :) plus the skill set learned will be super valuable. The reason i grew so fed up with my previous jobs is the harder i worked the better my boss looked less appreciated i would be. i am fortunate though that my wife can support us for the next few years so my stress level is pretty low.
