About Me

Hi there, I’m Bill. I have a Journeyman trade ticket with Red and Blue Seals, a Business Diploma, an OH&S Certificate and I am a NCSO. I was in the industrial (oil) world for over 10 years. Before that, I owned and operated a small business for 10 years, and before that, I worked in retail management. I knew there must be more than the 9-5 or 9-9 grind of working for somebody and putting up with the office politics involved with being an employee.

I have been married to my wife, Val, since 2004 and we have two wonderful kids and two Jack Russell Terriers. It is busy, and often noisy in our house.

Val works with me and you will sometimes see posts she has written.  She calls herself “The Other Half” because we truly are a team that works together, parents together, and achieves our dreams and goals together. Val has a background in the dental industry and retail. She has also been a small business owner in the past. Val recently graduated as an Accounting Technician (with Distinction) from a local college and is putting those new skills to use daily. Her goal has always been to be able to earn a living from home as it is important to us that we be available for our kids, the two-legged and the four-legged variety.

I have always had a dream of being my own boss and working from home. Now I am doing it. Setting my own hours, being available when I am needed, and I am not even that good with computers.


I came across Wealthy Affiliate in 2016 and I have been building my business since then. WA is helpful and supportive and offers a free trial period to try it out.

Here is my review of Wealthy Affiliate
