A Little About Me

Hi, my name is Chrisie. About Me -1I want to tell you about my life struggles, which most of my family don’t even know about.

Let’s go back to about four years ago when I was in a relationship going through hard times. I mean serious hard times. We became homeless twice.

The crazy part about it was, we both had full-time jobs! 

It wasn’t that we didn’t have the money to move in. We had to make three times the rent to move into a place. If I made three times the rent, I wouldn’t be looking for low-income housing to start with.

We were living out of our car for two years.

When we got on our feet in late October 2012, the worst thing could happen next. My father passed away two weeks before Thanksgiving. I was a total mess for several months.

By mid-summer, I moved three hours away from home to make a new start all alone.

Yes, it was scary but I was determined. I left everything I knew to begin in a new place. Well, it didn’t go very well at first because once again I became homeless.

Luckily, the guys I worked with were very supportive and opened their home to me so I could get on my feet. After about 3 months, I found my very own place. It wasn’t much but it was enough for me.

Then a couple years roll by as I get more acquainted with my job being the only female satellite technician

Being in that position, I had to prove myself a lot which made me stronger and very confident in my work.

Confidently, I started to see things a little different.

I was doing the work. Actually more than the men. The problem was the company was cutting our pay, which increased each year. About Me feeling unhappy and miserable

It didn’t make sense but I kept working there. Miserable and unhappy wanting more from my job- and wanting more out of life. 

I couldn’t see myself in my forties being a satellite technician. I’m saying it can’t be done but not for me. I want more.

In the summer of 2017, I was in an accident in my personal vehicle; which leads to me losing my job. Struggling so much to get out of the debt pool, I began working side jobs that didn’t even make ends-meat. 

I was so down on my luck. 

So, I started looking online to help me to defeat the struggle of debt that was behind me like a ghost.

Looking online was stressful. Everybody trying to scam whichever way possible. Like, give your money for this information that you know nothing about.

They don’t teach you. They just give you the information for you to figure out for yourself and that’s not fair at all.

I wanted to look at this online world differently; no longer wanting a job where I worked for someone else. I want to work for myself and help others to do the same thing.


I want to help people that are just like me. People that want more out of life and want to work hard to get it. I always looked at things like building blocks.

You need a foundation to get to the top. Standing on your own two Feet of success

I want to be that support for your foundation, where you can grow on your own with two feet to the top of your success. 

Everybody is looking for extra money someway or somehow but have no knowledge of how to get there. That’s why Defeat the Struggle is here to help you, to conquer that hourly wage job and enjoy life like you should.

  1. Hi Chrisie,

    I absolutely love your story.

    I have the same values as yourself in wanting to help people who are going through the struggle.

    Using our own experiences to help others is the best way to motivate and inspire people to want to get out of the struggle in life in my opinion.

    Well done and keep sharing your experiences to inspire me and the world.

    I have bookmarked your site to come back to when I need more motivation and inspiration.

    Keep up the amazing work.

    All the best,


    1. Hey Tom 🙂

      Thank you for commenting with your kind and positive words. Your words lifted my spirits a little higher today and I thank you for that too. 🙂

      I am grateful that your values are similar. We need more people in the world like you to help one another instead of destroying. I look at my struggles as a lesson of how not to make the same mistakes twice.

      Well, sometimes the struggle will come in different forms but with the same devastating outcome. That doesn’t mean that you failed at anything at all. It just means that things can just happen. You just can’t dwell in the moment of when things fall or fail. Some get stuck there in their struggle a lot. I know, I did sometimes.

      You always have to remember that trouble doesn’t last always and you have to make it change or it will stay the same. I know you will do great helping others. You just helped me with your encouraging words.

      Wishing you all the best on your journey helping others.

      Chrisie 🙂

  2. Hey Chrisie,
    I’m totally impressed by your story and you are proving that anyone can make it despite the hard times.
    It’s amazing what you can do when you’re down and out and your back is up against the wall.
    When you are at the bottom, the only way is up,right?
    I got tired of all the scams too. You don’t mind doing the hard work. It’s the promises and lies that you have to deal with.
    Wealthy Affiliate is anything but that. Chrisie’s story is a true inspiration that we can all accomplish our goals no matter what.
    Chrisie, what made you choose Wealthy Affiliate?

    1. Awww, thank you for your kind comment :-).

      Yes, you are the only way IS back up when times are hard. When times are hard, you become desperate to finding a way to make money. I was truly desperate. After losing so much money selling security system the old fashion way (door to door). Then, I tried to do it online with no help. 

      I was on a grind to take make a better life for myself. It had to be a better way. 

      What made me choose Wealthy Affiliate was that they were willing to teach me and not force anything on me. The abundance of members gave me the glue that everything is REAL about Wealthy Affiliate and I wanted to be a part of it.
