Hello all!

Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Dean Sueck and I live in really rural Iowa, just about dead-center between Des Moines and Omaha.

I have a wife and 4 children, 2 cats, 2 dogs (well, with the new litter, 15 dogs), 2 horses (sigh). We live on a 6 acre slice of heaven in the Iowa countryside and won't give it up for anything you can name. The kids are mostly moved out now, 3 are gone and 1 will probably go this June.

For the past almost 25 years, I've been a professional computer consultant, running around the country helping people resolve different computer problems. I love my work and am well paid, unfortunately it has this feast and famine cycle in which I work for 6-8 months, then spend another 3 months trying to line up the next gig. It's been going like this for the past few years and the jobs are starting to get harder to find so I need to find a way out of this area and get into something just as lucrative but more constant and steady.


So I need to find a way to make an income that 1) isn't so labor intensive and 2) that is steady.

Well, without putting you all to sleep (hopefully) I'll close now.

I'm excited to be here and look forward to getting to know you all!

Dean

Hmmm. Unsure as yet. Looking at the Foreign Exchange markets, but with 95% losing their shirts there, not sure I want to get into that buzzsaw.

I'd love to become a writer which might be the route I end up going down, even though the odds are pretty stiff there as well.

I've got a lot of different skills, both computer and non-computer and that's probably part of my problem. lol. EVERYTHING looks good or bad depending on how I look at things on a particular day.

Obviously haven't decided yet. But I'm trying the Forex in a small way right now to see how badly I get burned ;) Going to do some writing concurrently and see how that goes.
