Hi everyone. My name is Joe Kirin and welcome to my profile. I'm a 30 yr. old entrepreneur from Southern California and I have been doing business online for three years now.
After high school I started working in the real world as a construction worker. It was tough work and needless to say it started to take its toll on me. I decided that I wanted to go back to school after a year of work. I took classes in biological sciences and transferred to UC Davis with my wife who was also going to Davis.
I wanted at the time to get my B.S. and then apply to the Veterinarian program that was also offered at Davis. It was a very competitive program that allowed only a small percentage of its applicants entry. I worked hard and attended internships to gain experience in the field. However after actually getting some experience and learning that there wasn't a lot money in the field I lost interest. Especially since becoming a vet would mean four more years of school after my B.S. I didn't want to be in school that long. I felt pretty lost as I didn't know what I wanted to do.
My marriage was having problems because we couldn't spend enough time together, school took up almost all of it and we didn't really have any money. School costs a lot. Eventually my marriage fell apart and we split apart.
Now I really was lost. I was alone and 500 miles away from my family. I needed guidance and some direction in my life. I started searching for anything associated with motivation and business. I had always had a real strong interest in starting my own business but never really knew where to turn or look. I was also somewhat brainwashed by family and friends that I shouldn't waste my time. I should get a degree and find a good job.
My problem with this was that I didn't feel I should be busting my ass working for someone and making them all themoney while I take home barely enough to pay for my bills. To me, making it by and surviving is not thriving, its dieng.
So I did my research and found everything I needed to know was online. Thats the power of the internet, its all at your fingertips. This brings me to another thing I found online. The Secret.
I found this thing called the secret and was like, "what the heck is the secret"? I found out that the secret is the law of attraction. Basically thoughts are very powerful and can materialize anything you want and don't want. Thinking positive and making your own reality is what leads to success.
This was what really motivated me. Since then I have never looked back and continue toward my goal of financial freedom. I got my B.S. and have been running my online business since then.
Well thats just a small glimpse of me, thanks for reading and I hope to get to know more of you out there. Feel free to message me. Thanks.
