Welcome Retiree

Hi, I’m Pat

I am retired and enjoying it very much!
I started my working life as an illustrator working at a studio in Chicago

I WAS GOOD AT IT

But I had always wanted to be a fine artist and create what I wanted. So I decided to try that. I was having fun, but not making any money. Putting myself in front of the public to sell artwork was not my thing.

Thank goodness for the internet! I have recently found a great website to promote my art.

If you would like to see more of my artwork, or perhaps order a print, visit me at Fine Art America.

BUT TO GET BACK TO MY STORY

I didn’t want to go back to being an illustrator, so I worked at various retail and office jobs. I had been working as an inventory accountant for over fifteen years.  It was in a job that was boring and repetitive. I couldn’t wait to retire.

I retired in 2012, but I was worried

WOULD I HAVE ENOUGH MONEY?

As it turned out with my pension and social security I have enough. Enough with just a little left over. But I can see the writing on the wall. everything keeps going up and I was on a fixed income. So I have been searching for a way to supplement my income. I don’t have much of a track record from making money with my art so I was looking for something more

WHERE I COULD:

  • have my own business
  • work from my home
  • work at my own pace

AND:

  • didn’t need a lot of money to start
  • didn’t take all my time
  • had unlimited potential for income
  • was not a scam

THREE YEARS LATER I FOUND IT!

 I found what I consider the best training program on the internet.  After a year, I am still excited about this opportunity. I know there are a lot of people who can benefit from this. This website was created to help others succeed on the internet and I will help you any way I can.

If you would like to learn how to make money online with your very own website. If you dream of financial freedom. If you want to travel the world and make money from anywhere. If you dream of helping others find financial freedom. You need to take a look at this.

NO WEB BUILDING EXPERIENCE NEEDED

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that you can’t do this because you know nothing about building websites, Well, take a look at my website. I think my website is looking pretty good. I started it in May 2015. I knew NOTHING about building a website when I started either. If I can do it, so can you! Anyone can have a website. The training includes everything you need.

AND THE BEST PART IS IT was  FREE! NO STRINGS ATTACHED

No obligation, no trial membership or credit card required. Come on, what have you got to lose? If you are retired or thinking about retiring (or even if you are not old enough to retire; but want to quit your job or get extra income), go to my “Get Started” page and take a look.

  1. Dear Pat,

    It is very nice to meet you. 🙂 I am familiar with Chicago. I always wanted to visit Art Galleries since I too have a thing for drawing myself. Preferably anything with animals or nature. I love that Tiger artwork you did. 🙂 Mine is not that great, it doesn’t appear looking real when I draw my stuff, more like animated like, but a bit life-like. Its great that you found WA. 🙂

    • Angel,
      I would love to see your drawings. Artwork doesn’t have to be lifelike and realistic. It’s about how it makes you feel; both when you look at it and when you are doing it. If it brings you joy that is what matters.
      PS. I wish you success with WA.
      Pat
