About Me

Hello from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My name is Ken and I would like to say a little about myself and why I created this website. I have a message to everyone about why I feel compassion about my freedom and what freedom should mean to you.

As this world grows a little older each day, changes are inevitable and not always for the better. I believe change can be good, and that knowledge can set you free! When your heart is in the right place, soon your mind will follow.

I had a wonderful childhood.  Of course, times were much different back then. We didn’t even lock our doors when we left the house. Television was also not the main focus of the family. Kids were told to go outside to play. I am the last of the “babyboomer” generation.

We did not have computers, or electronic games. We had toy pistols,  baseballs, footballs, old tire swings, Hot wheels, matchbox, toy trains, bicycles. We thought it could not get any better than this. We always had a pet, dogs, cats, sometimes birds. We would go catch lizards and horny toads, ground squirrels or an occasional snake.

My family was musically inclined, so someone in the family was always learning to play a musical instrument. My cousins all play the piano, my dad played the flute, as his dad did, and I play the guitar. We never played together like “The Partridge Family”, because we  all had different music tastes.

The biggest chore we had was to come in from playing outside and “wash up” before sitting down to eat. After supper, I think we always had some sort of dessert, but to get dessert you had to eat everything on your plate! All our food was always handmade, never prepackaged. We were never allowed to eat while watching TV, until we were much older. Of course as we grew older, we became more independent. I remember we would get on our bikes and go riding all day. We would not come home until it was getting dark outside.

Walter Cronkite would tell your parents about the news that was important, and Paul Harvey always had something humorous to say.  So maybe my life of growing up sounds like living in the “stone-age”,  or like watching the old TV shows, like “The Flintstones”, “Leave it to Beaver”, or “Andy Griffith show”. That was life back in the 1960’s and 1970’s in Amarillo Texas.

I had many hard lessons to learn in the 1980’s and 1990’s. I had become a single parent. I learned what it’s like to lose family members, brother, Mom, Dad, then my wife. I had to do a lot of soul searching, and asked many questions. I did a lot of praying too. I have to say, though, I am living proof that God answers prayers!

The biggest thing that has changed my life besides my faith in GOD and what HE is doing for me is my membership in Wealthy Affiliate, or WA for short. This organization has allowed me to become my own boss, to work when I want, where I want, and to enjoy freedom as it is meant to be – “debt-free“.

I also want to share more information about me from my Wealthy Affiliate profile page.

My definition or interpretation of the word “Freedom” has had many faces and wore many different hats throughout my life. I have had the best and I have had the worse of what life has offered me. It is through these experiences that I can relate to what “Freedom” is and how I can help others achieve it. To live debt free, you have the freedom to live like no other. Believe me, it is possible, follow me and I will show you how. That is what I am all about, to leave a legacy for others to feel compassion, to love, to laugh, and to enjoy all of life.

  1. Ken, we’re from different parts of the country, and I believe I have a few years on you. But, it’s amazing how many similar feelings and memories we have in common.

    Some of my earliest memories of school were hiding under my wooden desk in the case of a nuclear attack. I don’t remember any time when we weren’t at war with somebody. But, I do remember on the news during the Viet Nam War tv coverage.

    I tell the 20-year-olds at work that I wouldn’t trade my past for their future. We lived in the best of times and the worst of times. Our parents were a strong hard working and loving generation.

    We need to get back to our roots and our core values.

    Keep up the good work here.
    Phil

    1. I could not have said it any better than you, Phil. Our generation learned how to use their imagination to better our small world, and when we matured we were able to use that power to help build this great nation. The children of today do not have that luxury. Let us pray that our younger generation learns how to control their instant gratification from electronic devices.
