My Name is Blair. Im from Crowley, Louisiana. I live in South Louisiana in a small City. I grew up in the Residential Painting business my Dad had. I graduated high school ended up going to college for Instrumentation Technology. I have a Associates Degree in Applied Science. Lost my dad when I was 22 years old. After college I didn't get that adult financing mentor ship that I needed form him. I took over his painting business until I graduated college . I been working in the Oil and Gas Industry as a Instrument and Electrical Technician (I&E Tech.) for 7 years now. I have a Wife and 2 Boys. a third boy on the way...I'm now realizing that my job is not what I want to do for another 3-5 years. 2018 I got into Amazon FBA from watching youtube videos about it. I purchase Dan Vas course after countless reviews of other courses. Now 2019 Im not as active with selling on amazon but still working on it. I heard about the millionaire fastlane book from Dan Vas Amazon course. I haven't read a book since college. I just finished it and I really enjoyed it. It has changed my outlook on business, and open me to peace together my mindset of freedom. I started back up our painting business for side hustle money in 2018. This was to fund my amazon eCommerce business. I need to focus on one business like the book teaches. I was thinking of a painting lead service. but I dont have the skills to produce a website but I am reading and teaching myself. I'm just tired of living paycheck to paycheck. I have the passion to move forward, i just need to learn the skills to be a successful online business. Also I enjoy crossfit, outdoors, and just being with my kids. Nothing is better than being off on a saturday and playing outside with them. Next time I write like this it will be playing with my kids outside on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, get the picture.

Oil and Gas Industry as a Instrument and Electrical Technician

Dude, welcome, sorry about your Dad.

Are you an expert in those instruments? Is there a need or calling for things in your industry you can sell and have knowledge on? Can you invent something for that industry?

Think about what has been referenced here before. The people who sold the shovels and picks to the Miners won bigger.

Thoughts to spark thoughts, but then action.

*Creating your own MLM company - you sell painting franchises
*Buy a paint store from some baby boomer who is retiring soon
*Create a quality brand - sell high tech/quality instruments in your field
*Buy a business making those parts - sell wholesale

Then use that experience and money to go do and in vest in "X".

Either way stay tuned, pretty cool place be.

PS - @Vigilante should like your pic based solely on the cigar ; )
