WHY DO I HAVE THIS WEBSITE?

I want to show everyone the beauty of Switzerland and other places and things, and I am also hoping and praying to be able to make some money with this website to help support my wife and 3 small kids. Currently I am not making much money with my websites because of the costs of hosting them and not having enough genuine visitors/customers/fans/traffic. I want to make this a popular and interesting website where I will get visitors who return to see my new photos and updates, and hopefully some will buy some of the software and products that I am trying to sell on here. I will gladly sell copies of my photos, and I already am on Zazzle, so if you are interested in buying one of my photos, please write to me on my Contact page.

The software and products that I am selling are from affiliate programs, which are shown below. I sell another company’s products and get a commission for selling it for that company. I want this website to look beautiful and not have a bunch of ugly advertising on it, so I am trying to design it to look good, but still have some ads and other products on it to sell.

I am an American living in Switzerland, and it has been very challenging to find a job here because of the language, my skills, my age, and my nationality. There are other reasons why my job search has been very difficult, but I think them are the top 4.

The main languages in central Switzerland are Swiss german and high german and since it has been very difficult to learn either one, I have looked mainly for english speaking jobs, which are few and far between.

My job skills are currently not what is in high demand here in Switzerland. I got an Associates degree in Electrical Engineering Technology back in 1992 and I worked as an electrical engineer/designer for about 13 years, where I designed wire harnesses/cables and other electrical components for Somero construction equipment. That experience was great but it didn’t prepare me so well for Switzerland. Here the electrical engineering skills that are in high demand are for software engineering, printed circuit boards and small electronic circuits, all of which I don’t have any experience with.

The issue with my age is that I am not in the ideal age group for most jobs in Switzerland. The ideal age range which they put in the job advertisements is like 25 – 35, and I am now 44 going on 45, which is the cutoff age in many job ads. Unlike the USA, in Switzerland they can put right in the job ad that they want someone young, like 25.

The fourth issue with my job search has been that I am American and not Swiss. It is more difficult to find a job if you aren’t Swiss or from the European Union and of course don’t speak the languages. I am in the process of hopefully getting my Swiss passport, so hopefully that will help in my job search.

I would love to find an interesting part-time or full-time job that I enjoy, and also to have some income from my websites. My dream is to have my own business and to have an online business that is profitable, so I hope I can get this website to be very popular and making some money soon.

Thanks for stopping by and for reading this. It would be great if you were looking to buy what I am offering on this website, and if you could purchase it through my website, I would really appreciate it. If you have any questions or would just like to say hi, please write to me on my contact page or in the comments below. Thanks again for stopping by, Robert
