    Hello BHW folks!

    I'm not a newcomer, my account dates back to 2015, I know it is not too much but still, I think its time to introduce myself.

    The first time I came across BHW I had no idea what SEO was. In reality I just came here to buy a few google accounts to mess with my friends. Then I headed back to my college life. By the way, I am a Engineer (yay!).

    During college I started to care about eMarketing, entrepreneurship and a lot of different things that a respected professional just can't close his eyes to. And BHW helped to find my way around many times. I just didn't have the time to post but I assure you I'm a passionate reader. Thanks BHW!

    I started to work as a circuit designer but my country economy sucks right now (yay!?), sad but we have to play with the toys we are given. For a long time I managed to survive the concrete jungle, but the concrete jungle is ruthless!

    In December I was eating a Subway with my colegue, we were late for an inspection where we worked and had to run back to office. But the crazy streets of São Paulo (Brazil, yay!) sometimes don't give you a change to cross the street as safe as you would like. But worry not, my dear friends, I was hit while crossing the street but I still alive. Lucky me, I was hit by a Bike...

    I could think about only two things when that crazy biker hit me: "Yay! Its not a car!" and "Ouch! my leg really hurts". And indeed, I broke my leg... as I write I feel the need to scratch my knee but I can't because I'm using a plaster cast.

    As you guys may be wondering, I can't go to work. I have a medical leave until next month, which I think is way too much. But this is actually a good thing, like the Monty Python's song says "Always look the bright side of life!".

    I couldn't spend my days only complaining about how unlucky I am or wasting my time on Netflix, so I decided to STAY HUNGRY! And it unchained a huge cycle of self improvement and learning. My brains are bursting with new ideas and things that I want to do. I decided I can't just go back to my old life caged in an office where my real talent isn't appreciated. THIS IS TIME FOR LIFE-CHANGING DECISION! I couldn't see it before, but the changes I wanted in my life are easier to accomplish than I ever imagined. Maybe I was just too scared to take the steps.

    So now, I'm here at BHW, absorbing everything I can to finally start my own projects. But I feel I still need to learn from the big ones. I am here as an apprentice.

    And I have an OFFER to you, who are reading this and really went through my whole text. Accept me as your VA/apprentice. I want to learn, make, help and create with you. Whatever you are doing I want to be part of it. As your projects grows bigger, you need people like me who genuinely loves hard work and want to adsorb knowledge. PM me and lets have a chat.

    Thanks for your precious time everyone!

    Best,
    BrazenBull

    I would wish you a speedy recovery but I'm a bit self conflicted. o_O

    All the best for your ventures though. Why would you want to be a VA and not try out some innovative things yourself?

    Sure Mr. Taegn!

    Thanks SW!

    Well, I've been thinking about trying something by myself, really. I have a sketch of what I want to do and maybe I can learn from my mistakes while I put together this project. But something I learned in entrepreneurship 101 keeps bothering me. My instructor said and I quote here: "Think about your experience level on a specific topic before throwing in your money, if you don't feel prepared, drop it."

    Well, don't throw a lot of money. Try things out, if that works for you, scale it.

    So I guess the phrase "Break the leg" doesn't apply in your case then.

    Ha, good stuff bro!

    Getting cancer brought me back to BHW - I'm bored out of my mind staying home all the time while receiving chemo so I needed something that felt productive to supplement my netflix viewing haha.
