You are seeing this page because you want to know more about me and my website. No need to waste any time; let’s get on with it already.
Who Am I?
My name is Darcy (fondly called Dee on the web) and I’ve been accessing and evaluating online home business opportunities for nearly a decade. I’ve had my fair share of life and gone through some rough patches of my own and it honestly has not been easy at all but it’s been quite an adventure.
My Journey to Online Success
I first had the idea of working from home while I was in my last year of high school. I experienced a stroke when I was 11 months old which caused me partial blindness and other maladies. So I am sure you can understand that learning in a traditional class setting did not come easy for me. This led me to conclude that if I had problems adapting in a high-school environment, then I really wouldn’t do well in College or University. So I started researching on opportunities to work from home.
Unfortunately, the opportunities I found did not suit my needs at all. I discovered several home data entry and customer service positions which would have been fine since they paid good money but applicants were required to know at least 2 languages or have a diploma. I also wasn’t sure if I was up to being tied to a desk or telephone for eight hours a day. So I put the idea aside temporarily and went to College for a year to learn graphic design.
Discovering Success Phase 1
I have to admit, what I learned while attending this course was invaluable, however the classes were fierce with a great deal of self-learning involved. I was functioning on 4 hours of sleep most days, which isn’t healthy to begin with, but also life threatening in my case, as an epileptic.
By the years end, I deemed myself unfit to continue onto the second year, so I got a part-time job at a drug store, and used my free-time to search for work from home opportunities.
Fortunately, I now had a whole year of internet research, web design and writing experience that all worked to my advantage – because as luck would have it, these are the core skills you need to start a stay-at-home business! Although I did not realize that right away. I started out following my passion for drawing, and sold digitally colored clip-arts by way of my own website and Paypal Express. The website generated moderate traffic and it brought in a few extra dollars every month. The experience of generating revenue while hanging out with family or chilling on the couch was truly a great feeling! It gave me confidence that I would be able to create a career that I would enjoy and be able to do well even with my disability.
Discovering Success Phase 2
Selling digital products was a step in the right direction for sure, but I still wasn’t generating enough income to be comfortable. I felt underpaid at my physical job and my new business paid me in small spurts, so I applied for an online support position. (Fluent English and Grade 12 needed only.) As you can well imagine the competition for this job was huge and I really wasn’t expecting anything to come of it (nothing did), but while I was filling out the application I saw a notice on the website’s side bar that read: Learn how to build your own online business successfully with training. Naturally I was interested, and just like that – I clicked my way into a community that would change my life forever.
That’s right! I had discovered (by accident) a very unique online university that teaches everything you need to know about being successful with online earnings. The best part was, I could create a free account and had the first 10 lessons free of charge. That way I got to see if the course was something I was interested in or not and what I learned within the first few days blew me away! I learned the basic process of earning money online, how to set up a proper website, and how to start generating traffic TO the website, all in the first four days. (No joke at all.) I learned more in four days then I did in the first few months of College, and I paid hundreds of dollars for that course! I felt at home quite quickly, I was able to learn at my own pace without worrying about grades and I was able to put what I learned into physical action right away.
Make no mistakes, learning how to create an online business is a steep learning curve, and huge results didn’t happen overnight, but nothing truly worthwhile ever happens that way.
I’m driven by my passion and committed to helping others reach their career goals, and this website is my way of sharing my knowledge with the world. With you!
