I was born on July 28, 1969 in Washington, DC at 11 3/4 lbs. During my childhood I went to 7 different Schools, starting in kindergarden, Yorkville, NY then moved to Baltimore MD finishing the year out in my second school.
My parents had split up and me my brother and my mother went to live with our Aunt in the City of Baltimore. We lived there for 3 years while I went to St. Elizabeth Catholic School through third grade.
Baltimore in the 70’s was very tough growing up. I learned quickly that you had to fight to survive. I don’t remember there ever being a day that went by where I didn’t get into a fight, it was just a way of life in the city.
In 1978 my father came to get us and took my brother and I to live in Chadwicks New York for fourth grade. The next school year I transferred to a private christian school located in Utica New York for fifth and six grade. Two years later I transferred to Sauquoit Valley Central School for my seventh and eighth grade, moving once again to Poland Central School for my Freshman year.
Finally we moved back to Sauquoit Valley Central School for my tenth, eleventh and senior year and graduated in 1987. All through my childhood, the only thing I wanted to do was play professional baseball. But like most athletes I did not put in enough effort in the off seasons and even though I was a great baseball player, I never moved on to the next level.
After High School all I was applied to St. Johns University to play baseball for them. We were in contact with the head coach but my grades were not high enough. He suggested to enroll in St Johns Fisher for two years, play baseball for them ,get my grades up then transfer my junior year. Or course I did not take his advice, instead I enrolled in the local college, Mohawk Valley Community College, where I said I would get my grades up here, then transfer. Well I should have listened to the coach and left home because after the first year I was put on academic probation and dropped out on year two.
After two years, no degree and ten thousand dollars in student loans, I began to work for my father in his painting, taping and sheet rocking business. Working State pay rate jobs making $27-$35 per hour at 19 years old, I thought I was on top of the world. So instead of investing it, saving it etc.. I buy a two year old Audi, radar detectors, radio systems, hi-fi stereos, and of course a $15,000 Ninja motorcycle all on high interest credit cards. I spent thousands of dollars and why not I was making $30 an hour, I could afford anything, right?
Well my father was a non union company working in the Capitol District in Albany New York. If anybody know about unions in the city, you either join or you will not be working. I can remember we had a huge contract to paint the new Johnstown New York Prison. My father had 15 men on his payroll paying over $15,000 per week in payroll. My father refused to join the union, and after we would paint the entire dorms, during the night the unions workers would come in with their sheet road mud and touch up the entire dorm. These dorms were all finished and ready to go, and we would come back in the morning and have to repaint it all over again. This continued for a couple of weeks and finally, you guessed it, we got so backed up and behind we were thrown off the job. Now I was 20 years old and I was not going quietly, I had a mountain of debt and nobody was going to throw me off my work site.
Picture a 20 year old boy, mouthing off and threatening seasoned union construction workers, telling them that I was not leaving and I was going to take them all on. I had a 2x4x6 in my hands yelling and swinging it at everybody. I can remember about 20 men walking towards me in a big circle surrounding me. At that point I knew I had made a big mistake. Seconds later, two New York State Troopers came speeding in the construction site with lights and sirens. Then my father came in right behind them, and was very upset. Not really at the fact we were getting kicked off the site but because of the way I was acting.
Well, the business went under and I had to figure out what I was going to do next. During that time, I met my soul mate Renee. I did not know at the time that she was my soul mate but over the years together it becomes very clear.
We were married on August 17, 1991 on my mothers birthday. It was a big Italian wedding with over 200 people attending. In 1992 I began my next career in law enforcement. I started working for Mohawk New York Police Department where I was trained full time. In 1995 I transferred to Herkimer New York Police Department which is the next tow over. I stayed there until 1997, then transferred to Ilion New York Police Department until 2001, when I transferred to the Vermont State Police where I am currently working 18 years.
Around 2017, I discovered email marketing. I believed I could become financially free making money online. Why not, all you had to do was search you tube and you can watch videos of marketers telling you how easy it is to make $10,000 per month. I know you all have watch these marketers saying that you don’t need any money, you don’t need any experience, you don’t need a computer, you don’t need anything but this brand new software on auto pilot and you can just sit back and count the money. We all know that is a load of crap and you must take action in order to succeed in anything.
I will admit, I bought all the shiny objects and wasted thousands and thousands of dollars on a bunch of garbage. It went that way for a couple of years and I have learned a lot about affiliate and internet marketing.
On July 1, 2019 I watched a video from John Thornhill talking about product creation and why creating you own products is the best way to make passive income. I am sitting here writing in my first blog about a niche I very passionate about and you guessed it, online marketing.
This training course Partners For Success is the best course I have ever purchased. I strongly suggest that enroll in this course before the price goes up, because the information in second to none and you can be financially independent if you just take action now.
