I am a writer and business owner living in Anchorage, AK. My main interests are in the areas of alternative energy, technology, creating passive income, sports, and FUN. My goal is to provide people with interesting information on topics they never thought about before. I'm trying to get people to think and hopefully I will see the same from other Hubbers.

Over the last several years I have become increasinly facinated by waste oil burners. My business partner John orginally got one for our shop and his house as a means to get rid of all the excess waste oil our company was producing and had no idea that it would totally eliminate our dependence on natural gas. You would not believe how good it feels to get a heating bill in the middle of the coldest winter on record and see "$8.00."

Update 2/13/2010

In December of 2009 I gave up my oil change business and moved down to Portland, Or. I have really never been a huge fan of cold weather so you can imagine why Alaska was never going to work out long term. Love the summers though! Six to seven months of winter was a little too long for me to deal with each year. Plus I love the Portland Trailblazers.

I work for this SEO company down here called Effective Web Solutions. I love it. In life there are always things we are naturally good at and SEO is one of them. It involved writting a lot of articles and that is what I love to do.

Like anything people SEO takes a lot of work. If you do not really like to write its going to be hard to do it. You are going to have to spend lots of hours buidling a nice income from the internet. Many people are trying to do it. Its one of the most sought out incomes in the world.

Why, you might ask? Because you can do it anywhere and it gives you the type of freedom that most other forms of income will not (whether passive or earned). Having said that 95% of the people who try it will not make any money. You have to invest, time, and resources. Hum, like any real business.
