Hello and welcome to my blog,
My name is Hector Rivera. I was born in Honduras and emigrated to the United States when I was 19 years old. I came to the United States because I wanted to to discover this country with all my might. I fell in love with the Unites States when I was 10 years old thanks to a Readers’ Digest which I found laying somewhere in the house.
Once I got here I decided to continue my education and opted for computer programming but about 4 years later I changed my major to nursing which I practice today. Here I am, working at a local Hospital and enjoying life here in the United States
Some time ago, I decided to work online and here I am today still working and enjoying every minute of it. Nursing is a great profession but I need to take time off so I don’t get burned out. Since I love internet marketing, this is where you are going to see me when I’m not at work. I love to work from home!
One interesting trait about me is that I like to work hard and when I set my mind to something, watch out! I know most people like to work but in my case, I work non stop until things get done.
Here is an example. We own a 2,000 square ft older house on the coast and I decided I was going to remodel the entire thing. When I mentioned it to my wife, she looked at me with disbelief and laughed because I was a “Nurse” and not someone who knew how to remodel houses. We started working on the outside but I had to pay someone to work on a section of the roof and another section of the siding because for some reason, I did not want to do it. After I got the bill for those 2 projects then I decided to do the rest on my own and save some money!
She and I traveled 2 hours each way every weekend for 2 years until the whole darn thing was done. I stripped the entire kitchen all the way to the ground, walls, kitchen cabinets including the counter tops. I build new counter tops and laid tile floors. I also stripped the dinning room floor all the way to the ground and replaced all the wood. I laid bamboo flooring on the dinning room, on the living room, and hallway; marble floors in the bathrooms. I got to play with pluming, electricity, cement, wood, and did a lot of things I had never done before.
My wife could not believe her eyes at the progress of the house and the shape it was taking. Once she saw the finished product; she could not believe it! This is something to be proud of because just her and I took on this project.
I am also a runner and have been running off and on all my life. I had never ran more than a half marathon, but at the age of 50, I decided to run a full marathon. I am not sure why I hadn’t thought of running a full marathon all along, but at 50, I conceived it, trained for it and did it. I ran another one two years later, and I think that would be the last as training for one takes a lot of time. I still run up to this day and will continue to run but shorter distances though.
I love to travel and my goal is to visit as many countries as I can. So far I have been to Brazil, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Hawaii…and counting.
I’m going to Europe soon and I will visit 9 countries. I will bring a ton of pictures because I love Photography as well. When I go on vacations, all I do is take pictures. I don’t want to miss any details.
English is my second language and it was tough to go through Nursing school but I was able to conquer all my obstacles. People I knew and even instructors that taught me told me I was not going to make it. I proved them wrong.
It shouldn’t be hard to see why I am divulging all these and it is to point to the fact that anybody can do anything so far they set their mind to it. All we need for the most part is to have a goal and a strong zeal to accomplish it. Remember that there is a place for hard work in all of these and there are going to be obstacles along the way. All you need to succeed is to see these obstacles as stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks.
Anyone can accomplish what ever they set out to do but it takes hard work and dedication. If you are here to learn how to make money online, you must be willing to learn, to sacrifice, and to spend time and money. If you are looking for an easy way, this is not for you.
Hope to see you here and please let me know if you have any questions. Please make yourself at home and once again. Welcome!
