So this is my first post to read.cash, so i thought the first place to visit would be to introduce myself to you all!
Thank you @MarSou for the invite here, it will definitely be a new experience as i don'y really write very much...
So i won't go into too much detail on anything, maybe just a preview on everything? I dunno, i'm not an "article" type person, so i'm just gonna wing this!
Some of you already know me on such platforms as noise.cash & Display Social, but maybe you don't actually know much about me personally? Well keep reading :)
So my real name is Carl, I was born in England. I am an only child as i think one of me was enough for my parents!
I was a little shit when i was younger! Really made my parents work for their title of being a parent! I messed around in school, i was always in trouble with and i didn't really care much for authority at all!
When i was leaving school, i thought it was more important to take drugs and mess around that i didn't do very well as GCSE's go. I did go to college where i did an IT course, but again, i bunked half the lessons and did not do too well.
In the end i decided the only way to get out of the current circle i got myself in was to get out of the town i was from. This is where i decided to join the British Army.
So i joined the military when i was 18. I joined an infantry regiment, 1st battalion the Royal Anglian Regiment.
Joining the army was quite literally the best thing i could have done! With the discipline i gained, i actually gained some sort of structure in my life. And ever since i was younger, i loved anything that got my heart going, sort of an adrenaline junky!
I was in the military for 11 years where i got the opportunity to travel the world on training exercises such as Kenya three times, Canada, Falklands and two tours of Afghanistan.
The end of my military career came when i injured my back whilst on tour in the Falklands. I was carrying a ridiculous amount of weight on my back, and i think it was the old saying of "the straw the broke the camels back" where my back just clicked!
I found out that i had actually got two bulging discs on my L4/L5 which has been now causing me problems since 2016!
In 2019 the army finally said that was my injury was not going to heal so i received a medical discharge from the army as i started my new life as a civilian.
So leaving the army with an injured back, i had limited choices on my next career. I went to a lot of job fairs etc. trying to look for my next step when i was presented with the world of Insurance!
I applied for a 2 month work placement where i spent the time with so many different people to gain some sort of a network and i really got a feel for it. Weirdly enough, insurance is actually not as boring as it sounds!
After 4 months of looking, i finally caught a break when i managed to bag myself a job for an insurance broker within their compliance team. I have now spent a year and a half at this position and i'm still pushing strong.
If you are following me on any of the social platform, you would have seen me post about my daughter Emilia and my beautiful partner in crime Charlie.
In my final years of the military, i managed to find the girl of my dreams! Charlie and i were both playing the same online mobile gaming app where we were both in the same guild. The first words i said to her were "can i put my soldiers in your castle please?" a year later Emilia pops out!
I am so lucky to have found Charlie due to her support and love, i have transitions out of the army relatively easy.
I now have a beautiful daughter and some awesome step children that have made me into a family man. Having kids and just watching their antics, i genuinely think it is better than watching TV! Perfect example is watching Emilia at dinner time!
I am currently working on a website that i started in December 2020. I have never touched website building before, so this was all new to me that i have had to self teach everything!
I created Cash Review as a way to help other people learn new ways of earning money online. Ever since i was a child, i was always looking at new and inventive ways of making money and i have been somewhat obsessed! The idea that i can earn money myself by helping other people earn money is awesome!
It's so great, since i began the website it has grown so much! I have even had the pleasure to have some friends write up their articles and post to the blog like this article written about read.cash written by @fantagira and the article about noise.cash written by @abraxas
My dream would be for Cash Review to become successful, but who knows. I am still learning!
So that's me in a nut shell, I hope you got a bit of a better insight to my world!
