    I just wanted to take a little time and tell everyone "thank you" for the advice and information you all have shared with me. On and off for the last three years I have been seriously to semi seriously searching for a way to build a career online.

    Almost 8 years ago I broke my neck in a car accident, which left me in a wheelchair. I rehabilitated myself to independence and even learned how to drive the car again, But the hardest thing for me was trying to find a job/career without going back to school for a substantial amount of time. Well I am 40 years old and in a wheelchair so when most employers see me coming they start thinking about how they are going to basically tell me I haven't got a chance! it's unfortunate but it's a fact of life and obviously things happen for a reason.

    So that brings me back to searching for a career that I can do from my laptop at home or anywhere(because actually I wouldn't mind doing some traveling) I tried doing a Google search for just about every work at home type job trying different phrases and things like that, and always ended up with the endless list of get rich quick sites. I don't know why I didn't search for work at home forums (I guess I'm just not that smart) a long time ago but this forum was the first one I decided to click on and from what I have seen of the few forms I looked at this one is by far the best. The people on here seem to make it a point to help the new people (it looks like there are a lot of moms in this forum so that must be it! lol) get started and answer any questions they have no matter how stupid they are because I'm sure I'll be asking a few whoppers before long.

    I just wanted to say I am happy to have found this forum and grateful to be part of such a wonderful community.

    Thank you for making me feel welcome

    Hi Michael,
    What a great post!

    I have always felt very comfortable here.
    This really is a great gathering place.
    One thing which stands out for me is when I see someone asking if a program is legitimate, the guidance from this community is superb!

    Have a great day!
