My name is John Engle… I reside in Salida, Colorado.

Now for MY STORY!

On a warm summer day in the year 1999, sitting on the front porch of our family owned, Colorado guest ranch, I was in deep conversation on the topic of money with one of our wranglers.

I spoke with him about a book that I had been writing on personal finances, for the person that knew on paper that he made more than enough money to cover monthly costs, but came up short with nothing left over at the end of the month.

This book would dig deep into their possibly, wasteful spending habits to discover ways of adjusting their less than frugal shopping sprees that many face when trying to survive financially. This book would help initiate positive spending habits and create simple savings plans to help dig them out of their financial abyss.

After some discussion, Wrangler Josh came up with a bright idea for the name of my upcoming book… he said I should call it “A Poor Man’s Guide to Financial Security“. After all of these years, the phrase ‘Poor Man‘ stuck with me, so I decided to use the same phrase for my blog name to help others break through the financial barrier on a path to a blogging career.

During this same year in our wintertime ‘Off Season’, I began assisting my stepfather building websites for local clientele. I would assist him in creating pages using various graphic art designs.

This was my introduction to the “World Wide Web”, which later turned into a new found interest.

Several years after selling the ranch, I took the knowledge I had learned from my stepfather, and combined it with long hours and hard work to create my very first website. After many months of trial and error the 700+ page website was complete, pictures and all!

It was a rewarding experience, but now it is time to embark on my newly discovered passion, helping others create and follow down a career path, Making Money Blogging, even if while working a full time job.

Through me reading countless blogging, personal development and financial books, we will explore and discuss the many different methods others have used to make money on the Internet following their passion. We will discover the ‘Why’ that drives them and the steps they took to be successful in their career path.
