Hi! I'm Austin, but I guess you already knew that. There's a very good chance that if you're reading this, it is to find out some things out about me that you don't already know. For some reason, you want to know, "who is this Austin?"

I'll tell you some of my favorite things about me.

1) I have given my life to my savior, Jesus Christ. 2) I am a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and I will be running my own martial arts school soon. 3) My first child will be born in March 4) I am straight edge (alcohol, drug and promiscuous sex free my entire life) 4) I am a college dropout..

Wait, college dropout.. You're probably wondering why that is one of my favorite things about myself. Let me tell you a story. I was raised in one of those families that always said, "Nowadays, if you don't get a college degree, you will be nothing in life." They said I would have no money, no security, and no fun. I had different ideas, of course.

Even though I didn't agree with their thinking, I tried out the whole college thing. I had no idea what I was going for. Throughout my one and a half year college career, at one point or another, I majored in physical therapy, psychology, early childhood development, secondary education, general education, and marketing. That's six different majors in three semesters. It got to the point that when somebody would ask me what I went to college for, I would answer with, "to make my dad proud."

Finally, I had enough. I stopped trying after half a semester anyway. I stopped registering for classes after a year and a half.

There was not a career path I wanted that I really needed a college career for. I was smart enough and ambitious enough to succeed in life doing something I enjoyed, rather than doing something that a piece of paper said I'm qualified for.

I found this cool thing called internet marketing. I worked at it, and it worked for me. I found some good training, and never looked back!

Looking back, I could have had my bachelor's degree by now. I would have had enough money to give my child the life it deserves by the time its born in March, but that's not what I choose..

Instead of my child having a stay at home mom, and a dad who provides everything for them; I chose to give my child stay at home parents, and an ever increasing income.

So is college the only way to success? Apparently not :)
