Hello all, I'm Steven Howell, the creator of Branch Out Life.
I wanted to thank you for visiting my site and taking the time to read this post. It means a lot to me to see people who have interest in my goal of this blog site.
What is my goal you ask? Well I think I should start with, who I am and what obstacles I have overcome in my life. See right now in my life I am very happy. I am healthy. I'm able to travel whenever and wherever I want. I have a beautiful fiancé, and I have built a passive income that has allowed me to live life on my terms.
Only recently that I was able to attain this happiness.
It all started really when I graduated high school, back in the 90s. I began to drink a lot. Partied way to much, when I should have been getting my life together.
After a while it started to get bad. Drinking everyday and got to a point where I was basically just a drunk that was falling deeper and deeper into depression. Only thing I really had going for me was a job working at a well known grocery chain, but as the years went by this job only drove me more into depression and drinking. I hated going to work everyday. I use to be a pretty nice guy, but working at this place made me someone I wasn't.
I began to be mean and rude to customers. I really started not to like anyone or anything that had to do with the store I worked.
Then one day I realized what was happening to me. All the years of not doing anything with myself, all the years of boozing it up, all the years of feeling utterly worthless, turned me into a huge bag of nothing but negative energy.
I knew I had to change myself. Things needed to change in my life. It was time to catch up in life after falling so far behind on goals I should have pursued.
One thing was for sure. IT was a must that I got out of the work I was in, so I started by looking for work online.
This one action changed my life forever. I began to see courses on E-commerce and affiliate marketing. Even though I had no idea at the time what these things were, I kept learning more. I absorbed everything I could about making money online, and realized that this was definitely something I could do to leave my job I hated so much.
Wouldn't you know that while I did so much research and studying, I stopped drinking. Literally, just like that. I was so absorbed and determined to start my own business that I finally broke a habit I should have years ago.
Now it wasn't all easy I had my failures on my journey but I learned from them and moved on, strengthening my drive to succeed. I started to make major leaps and in doing this my depression started to fade. Then I realized I was doing it, I was finally starting to make my own income online.
I put some major work and time into my business, and finally in 2016 I was finally able to leave the job that held me back for so long.
My business has gone to levels I never expected and I feel so blessed to have made a life I feel proud of living.
Now You Know
Sorry about the long flash back story lol.
Now that you know where I come from and who I am, you'll have a better understanding of why I have created this site.
I believe that everyone has it in themselves to create the same happiness I have found. I know there are others out there that are in the same miserable place I was years ago. Being stuck at jobs they hate. Barely making ends meet week by week. Struggling to get up everyday and doing the same routine and getting deeper and deeper into depression because of it.
It's because of this that I have made it my personal mission to help those who are fed up with their lives. Give them the tools and resources to succeed. Show them the path that I took to better themselves and their quality of living. This is why I named this site Branch Out Life.
I encourage you to please join me on this goal. Everyone deserves the shot at breaking the shackles of society off their wrists and carving their path to financial freedom.
Thank you again for visiting and I'll speak with you all soon
