Who is Tim?

Timothy Backes

If you haven’t yet figured out by the name of this site, my name is Timothy Backes. I could start telling you about who I think I am, or going on about what I think you want to hear. But, Instead I think the best way to get to know more about me is to tell you who and what I am not.

I am not a multi-millionaire that’s going to show you how to make $9,762.57 a day with little to no work.

I am not a 19-year-old free of obligations that can drop everything and run off to share a $300/month apartment in Asia or South America with a couple friends while working on online businesses.

I am not someone that was able to live off the fruits of someone’s labors as I did not have access to interest free loans from family members or have a rich uncle subsidize my business for years.

So, who am I?

I am a single father in my forties. I was born into a lower middle class family. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

I took out student loans to help fund my university education, and have since paid them back in full.

I’ve freelanced, worked as a teacher, for start ups, and at agencies.

I have given up the office life and have worked remotely for the last several years.

And, I’m debt free, have had the freedom to visit over a dozen countries and counting, plus I have plenty of quality time left over to spend with my daughter.

I can’t teach you how to become independently wealthy in 12 months.

I can’t show you how to SEO your website to #1 in 24 hours.

I can’t help you go from an office worker to a digital overlord overnight.

But, I can share my experiences along with the tips and tricks I’ve picked up along my journey from working at a car wash for minimum wage to living a happy life with minimal stress and no regrets.
