How I Work From Home On My Farm

Teachers who work from home

    ...   45 miles to the nearest town.

Did I say "Work from home?"

Hi, My name is Steve and I would like to share my story of how I ended up where I am today.

I live in the Ozark mountains, the most beautiful and tranquil scenery you could imagine.

I have a beautiful farm and a quaint little house. I spend my days gardening, checking on the livestock, putting up hay, cutting firewood or just taking a walk or sitting by the creek.

No, I'm not afraid of hard work.

I have worked hard all my life for other people.

Now,I do something that I love and it is not work to me but play.

Well, that may be an understatement about play... 

I actually do a lot of reading and work that  I enjoy.

      But it's true, I work from home on my farm tending to my livestock and gardening and have a home office which I run this website.

Many of my friends envy my lifestyle. They tell me how they wish they could live in the country and not have to go to a 9 to 5 job every day.

They have put their dreams on hold for retirement. The way I see it, they have two problems: 

Lack of money and time.

Time and money is a common problem for many people, and I have faced it many times myself along with other setbacks.

I overcame these problems, and so can you.

Returning to the Homestead

My biggest passion was returning to the hills in which I grew up...

 I love these hills.

They give me a sense of peace and tranquility that most people only dream.

My biggest fear was that life would pass me by and I would have to wait till retirement before returning to what I love.

I knew that if I could work from home, then my dream would come true.

You see, most people that live here in the mountains have to drive two hours down dirt roads and curvy blacktop roads to get to work. They barely make ends meet and are caught in what seems an endless trap. I was use to more conveniences and a much more comfortable lifestyle, and I refuse to settle for anything less. I have this while I work from home and manage my farm.

I was a teacher in the public school system for twenty  years. I loved teaching and still do today.

But, now I teach through my website and get to work from home. I teach what I enjoy, not state mandated frameworks.

So, I decided to set a new goal:

I will prosper off the land in which I love;

I will grow most of my food, build most of what I need, and be as self sufficient as much as I possibly can.

I will have the finer things that I am accustomed  and even more.

To make a long story short:

I Made My Move

 I resigned from my teaching position and moved to the farm.

That's right, It was a decision based on passion, not reason.

I have my garden, cattle, goats, dogs, horses, some chickens and an abundance of wild hogs.

I fixed up the old farm rock house and here I am.

I have learned that nothing is impossible if you put your mind, body and soul into it.

Think of your life.

What do you really want?

I can only share what works for me and if by some chance I can help someone else become independent from the workforce then all the better.

It all started in December of 2006 when I began to work from home on my quest for an online income opportunity.

I came across many get rich quick schemes and I even bought into one of them. Need I say more? If its to good to be probably is! I became very sick and skeptical that I blew money that I really didn't have.

But I was determined! I knew that there had to be some honest way to make good money over the internet.

So, I kept searching.

I thought of ways that I could share my knowledge and experience to others through building  websites.

I knew nothing about building a website so,I began searching and learning.

I wanted to work from home to help supplement my farm income.

Then, I came across   

It is the only all-in-1 step-by-step system of process-and-software that delivers thriving businesses.No other purchase is necessary. Everything is included...

Online Work From Home

Update: October 2018: 

I still run this website with some assistance from others.

It is a blessing in my life and I continuously keep building, updating and publishing content aimed to help the homestead lifestyle.

I still plant my garden, preserve my food, raise and sell livestock (goats, cattle and my Great Pyrenees dogs), have plenty to eat and can pay my bills without having any debt!

I know there are a lot of you out there that would love to say just what I did.

Fact is, I'm not really all that special. I just found a business and had the resources to get the job done.

Ok, So if you have a passion for a particular theme, or knowledge that you would like to share with others,
