About Michael

Former “Lawn Boy” ditches the lawn mower, Makes a BOLD decision to live the Modernized (laptop) Lifestyle!

Hey, What’s happen…

My name is Michael Pruiksma.

Here is a recent picture of me on the 18th hole.

Michael Pruiksma

I live in Maryland very close to Ocean city but I originally from Northern New Jersey.

This is my favorite place to be..

On the beach, chillin with the wild horses on Assatague Island.

The video below is a older video and it is far from professional.

But it’s still pretty cool.

I was actually walking right into wild horses fighting on the beach.

Just click play. (Short Video)

I might be considered a “Beach Bum”.

You can find me riding in the waves, relaxing in my beach chair with a good book or listening to audios, getting a tan, walking down the boardwalk, watching live bands, Doing a little bar hopping, shooting pool kayaking.

Now, I have the luxury of earning an income, relaxing on the beach. (Weather permitting)

What they don’t know

Most people just flaunt their success stories and sometimes bend the truth.

I just did not have a profitable online business, handed to me.

I made my decision to start a online business, back on 5/31/2012.

To tell you the truth, I was just sick and tired or being sick and tired.

Running faster and faster on in the rat race of life and getting further behind.

Ever since I unexpectedly lost my dream job, doing what I loved to do while earning the most I ever made.

In my early 20’s I was making close to $30 per hour.

Sitting in a excavator, keeping the crushers, crushing rocks.

It was awesome.

But then, 2007 is when it all came to crashing halt.

Lost that job, due to the economy collapse.

I was devastated.

What was I going to do?

Why did that have to happen to me?

What am I going to do now?

The ONLY thing I knew how to do, which was search for another job.

But I didn’t want to settle for any type of job, I wanted to find a job like I had earning close to what I was earning.

Well that didn’t go as I planed.

That seemed to be impossible.

I ended up having to sell, just about everything I earned to pay my bills and purchase food.

When there was nothing left, I called every job in the classified section of my local news paper and ended up starting a new job, earning $10 per hour as a lawn boy as a lawn technician.

I was glad I got a job and it was some type of income, but I was working three times as hard for a third of the pay.

Build Your Dream Lifestyle

There were days, I liked my job and there were days I hated it.

All I knew, is that my future will be bleak and I needed to start making an improvement ASAP!

I was not going into major debt for a college class, to hopefully find a better job and earn more money.

But that seems more like a risk than starting my own online business.

There was no way I was going to college, I did not have the time, patients or money.

Plus I already been down that road.

I did not want to end up at another dead end.

2 choices

I will never let my future ride in the hands of someone else again.

It was time I learned some new skills, and try something different.

Because… If you do what you always do, you are only going to get what you always got.

I wanted more, so I need to do some thing different.

The beginning

This was the hardest part.

I had no prior experience, other than chatting, emailing and posting on MySpace. (it was a few years ago, okay)

Everytime I wanted to join and start a online business.

I had all these thoughts that kept running through my head.

Horsewithchair

It seemed like, my way of thinking, just wanted to hold me back.

I kept hearing voices in my head like..

You can’t do this Mike.

You can’t make money online.

You will never able to write a profitable blog.

You spelling, grammar and penmanship. SUCKS!

It seemed like ALL the 00ds were all stacked against me.

But if you think about it nothing in life ever comes easy.

If I wanted it, I needed to go after it and never look back.

Make up your mind, set some goals and work like hell.

I just new it would be all worth it in the end.

More freedom, More money, More options, More Friends and happier and healthier than ever before.

It’s no all about the money, but what the money can do for you.

It is really hard to explain, but something you just need to experience.

Future

I am so excited for the future of Modernized Lifestyle.

This is only the beginning.

What I have planed for 2015-2016 is going to blow you away.

2 Choices

You only have 2 choices.

You can choose to join us and design a lifestyle and future, you truly deserve.

Or

You have the choice to continue not to.

What is it going to be?

If you need help making a decision.

Listen to this OLD but AWESOME audio.

It will change YOU!

Listen to at least the first 45 min of this audio.

After that.

    Michael,
    Thank you very, very much for your encouragement, advice & the tools! You pulled me out of my fluster the other day! I especially appreciate the fact that you….YOU…. took the time to help me in this desperate time of need! I am trying, and just getting started. This is going to be a process, as you said. I have HOPE now. I just got to figure out how to use my personal, painful past, and current life, in my blog, and THAT is where I am going to have trouble. I am continuing to go through our conversation, to go through every single detail. I have got to get out of this hole and FAST. I am nervous but I do know that this is going to help me. Now, to figure how to blog….. What to say….. Uggh…. I STILL HAVE THAT HOPE THO! THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!!!

    Hello again Michael,
    I just read your new blog and I must say that I am very impressed and I was happy to see that you used your own story and events in your life that have brought you to where you’re at today. I will also be working on my first blog today and I have decided to use my own story as well which has brought me to where I am at today. It took a lot of thought and time to come to this decision.
    I feel that my story and painful life events are very personal and painful to re-visit, however I believe that my blog will have an impact on my readers. It’s also very important to share with others that painful events in their lives can either destroy them or make them stronger and give them a drive to really make a positive and successful change and also inspire others to do the same and to also show them that IT IS POSSIBLE!

    Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring
    Sincerely,
    Tamela Mehle
