Default Ryan from Ottawa

Hi everyone I am 30 years old started my first company which is painting, I have 12 year experience in general contracting, I have a 5 year old son and my wife and I wanted another child and we were blessed with twins.

Financially we were not prepared for the twins we more or less were planning for one baby but life works in mysterious ways. Backed into a corner to provide more I thought about my options, I went to Algonquin College for Interactive Multimedia ( meaning I build websites, graphic design, programming, video, audio, etc etc) I paid my way through college by working general contracting... By the time I was done college I realized the skills I had were useful but not my cup of tea. I am a hands on kind of guy. I need to get in there and do it myself. So I took the leap of faith and became self employed not to long ago and things have been going great. I started with business cards, then + flyers, working word of mouth, We survive. I am now working towards getting my site to my standards and starting my marketing campaign.

I have tons of knowledge that I can offer this community and am always trying to learn more, I have a great feeling about this website and look forward to becoming a very active user.

Welcome, I think many of us diverted to this industry from another path.

Look forward to hearing what you have learned and imparting what we have.

AND, please join in any of the hockey threads

Welcome to the group!

We have some Ryans here already - all troublemakers. Hopefully you'll help reverse that trend.
