Yes, it's true! I joined the Warrior Forum in June 2004 and I'm finally making my first post. There are a LOT of folks that have helped me to achieve my business goals through the years and I look forward to being a very active and supportive member of this community.
Why the hesitation to interact? Actually, it was due to my career. I wanted to be transparent and use my real name as my username at this forum, which is something I don't do on any of the other forums I've joined.
I have served as a spokesman for the United States Navy (active/reserve) and for a Department of Defense Agency as a civil servant. I have been an "Underground" marketer since 2000 because of my chosen career path.
So what changed? In November 2011, I was told my one-year Navy Reserve deployment to Afghanistan was cancelled. My six-month deployment to Afghanistan in July 2011 was cancelled previously. It suddenly dawned on me that maybe this was a sign. Maybe it was time to start phase two of my life! So, I retired from my civil service job in December 2011 and launched my part-time Internet Marketing business full time!
The past six months have been unbelievable for me. There have been ups and downs, but I know that I made the right decision.
I have made money with so many different strategies through the years, but my favorite today is offline marketing.
There are so many of you that I've interacted with via email. I've even met some of you at live IM events. I'm glad to finally be here and I hope you'll forgive me for not being an active member sooner
