Hello Everyone, I love this website! For years and years now i have been interested in making money on-line. I have bought a couple books that have told me absolutely nothing at all. Been on a couple different websites that were all about scamming the newer people joining.. Meaning like bogus links and such. I recently joined, and literally have not been doing anything else but reading and learning! Sorry for lurking btw.. There are so many knowledgeable people, and all seem to be very generous by posting and giving back. Me being a noob to all this. It is greatly appreciated! I mean you guys that have tried and failed, but kept at it to finally succeed have really worked out, done most of the research on a lot of this stuff! Basically taking most of the hard work out of a lot of stuff on here. I mean you guys do not have to post any of your little secrets.. Leaving us noob`s to just add our own twists and turns to most things here.. I hooked, i can`t stop reading! LOL I am an out of work trade machinist in Michigan with 20+ years experience. With in the last 3 years (give or take) 80% of machine shops here in Michigan has closed, so everyone that was employed at the places that closed just flooded the market! There used to be literally hundreds of places i could have gotten a job at. Now you can count them on two hands, and i have either worked at them or to far to drive. The ones that are to far to drive to are in the part of the state that pays roughly about $5 to $6 dollars less an hour doing the very same thing. So me getting a job here in Michigan doing what i know how to do (what i have done all my life) is slim to none. Unless a new place opens or something, so i am going to have to pack up and leave Michigan sooner or later, or change career`s. This is something i have always had an interest in and always wanted to try. Working as a machinist depending on what i got hired in to do paid $18.00 to $20.00 per hour just to operate. In the last 10 years though i was hired as either a set-up, repair, and troubleshoot which hired in at $21.00 to $25.00. I have taken a couple line leader, foreman, supervisor type positions which paid any where from $23.00 to $29.00 an hour. The last two jobs i have had the places have closed up.. Now i am unemployment, and getting by. Just getting by! I will continue to read and learn hear, and hopefully find a few good ways to make enough money here to not have to ever touch another dirty, nasty, ugly looking piece of machinery. I have a ton of time on my hands, and would certainly be willing to give back if anyone can point me in the right direction. I am not looking for any hand outs, or any trade secrets or anything, but would greatly appreciate any info, tips, insight, hints anyone is willing to pass along. I am here to learn from you experienced ones, and not looking to steal, or saturate anything you guys are doing. I am very willing to put in some hours doing this, and looking for some knowledge if anyone is overwhelmed or feels generous enough to give me a lead on something.. But either way, i do LOVE it here and plan on sticking around for a long time.. I have tried one thing on here so far, but this isn`t the correct place to post it.. I will post about my experience very soon.. Anyways thanks for reading, and looking forward to getting to know you all better! Take care!
