My name is James and I'm 31 born and raised in the "Green Mountain" state of Vermont in the USA...
(Here I am juggling rocks at the river on a beautiful summer day)
My Story is as follows... I'm 31 and have spent the last 16 years of my working career in manufacturing doing metal fabrication and other metal related work...
I presently live with my girlfriend and our dog, cat and 17 chickens in the town of Cambridge Vermont where we have rented for the last 5 years.
In this time period I have discovered that I no longer wish to pursue a full time career in manufacturing and would like to enter the realm of Blockchain development and have taken some basic steps necessary to getting practical experience needed to get in the space.
The dilemma I'm facing is my time is very much over leveraged working full time to provide for my family and at the same time taking online developer courses to get the relevant experience I need to pursue a career in the Blockchain space.
I would like to raise 50,000k to provide for a years worth of living expenses so I can take my developer courses full time and transition into the Blockchain space as soon as possible.
I'm very passionate about the great potential the Blockchain industry will offer and the tremendous amount of transparency and decentralization it is bringing to industries world wide and ask for your help in bringing my dream to life.
Unfortunately, I do not come from a wealthy, financially savvy family and I have no support for pursuing my dream from relatives and direct family.
With that being said, any contributions you can make to help me pursue my goal of full time employment in blockchain industry is greatly appreciated.
