About this site
This site was started as a personal journal for myself. I love exploring and learning new stuff but like any other human, I tend to forget easily so I decided to document most of the things I do. From indoor planting and gardening to DIY’s, from music to internet marketing, I put them all here.

About William Dahr Castro
First of all, I’d like to thank you for visiting my site! It’s a pleasure to have you around.
I’m a simple and very family-oriented person. I enjoy the simple things in life like music, food, and sleeping. Married to my beautiful wife and a father to a lovely daughter and two handsome boys. I spend most of my time with my family simply enjoying every moment with my wife and kids.
I used to work in the demanding world of Information Technology. In 2008, I was blessed to find a company that hired me as an IT technician. Repairing and reviving the old desktops, laptops, etc and I was happy with it. My boss saw a potential in me that whenever he trains new IT managers, he asks me to sit in the room and encourages me to learn as much as I can.
In just a few months with the company, I got promoted from IT technician to an IT manager! A huge jump in responsibility. I always had the confidence that I can learn new things easily in a very short matter of time. That confidence helped me perform very well, received rising star awards and then another promotion! Regional IT manager for the company’s Asia-Pacific region.
I moved to Shanghai and I never thought I would be able to achieve anything like this in my life. At the age of 28, I was managing all the IT matters for Asia-Pacific region.. 24+ call centers in 7+ countries.. 10 months before that, I was just cleaning, assembling and repairing old dusty computers.. it is all God’s favor and I’m very thankful for it!
In 2009, I started to explore the internet marketing arena. Lot’s of research, reading and dreaming to live the internet lifestyle 🙂 Didn’t
really do much because of the heavy demand in my work. I had $$ but I didn’t have time.. Sometimes I worked 14-16 hrs a day.. worked during my vacations or anytime they needed me.. I can’t forget when I still had to work during my mother’s wake..
One day, it hit me.. what’s my next step? I’m already at the peak of my career.. I won’t see another promotion maybe until 10+ yrs. I started feeling tired of all the demand, being on-call, and I wasn’t spending enough time with my wife and daughter back then.
In 2011, I started to take action and slowly built an online business. Had lots of mistakes and bad decisions but I’m so thankful that God blessed me with a very supportive wife. I’ve learned lots of lessons and then on 2013, I made a very very scary decision, I left my job.. the position.. the pay…
Today, my family and I are residing in Canada. It was a very tough move but it all worked out well! God is really good! Now, I am enjoying every moment with my growing family. Watching my kids grow is priceless!
