Let the Adventures Begin…

Regular 9 – 5 jobs have never quite sat right with me. When it comes to making an income, I like to think I sit somewhere outside the box of the normal hum-drum. I’ve sought alternatives to paying my bills, so I can enjoy my adventures. That’s always been the plan anyway.

Sharon Swanson - About Me

My husband always had a watch fetish which amused me, and I never really understood. I explored reviewing and recommending sports watches in my search for my alternative income. I never imagined I’d fall in love with them, but here I am – definitely mesmerized.

I felt something similar when I received my first smartphone. (Yes it was an iphone but I don’t want to be judged here anymore than necessary). I couldn’t believe a cell phone could be any more than just that, until I got my first smart phone. Ooh!

The same thing’s happened now with sports watches, except I actually started with dive computers. My husband scuba dived (dove?) in the late 1980s. Back then you had to rely on your dive tables and dive watch to keep you safe. None of these new fangled dive computers!

I started with researching dive watches. After spending many hours exploring the more popular brands, I then discovered dive computers. It seemed a natural progression to delve into the world of dive computers. This is when I fell in love. Not only are these babies good looking, but they’re designed to keep you safe as well. Double bonus, everyone wins.

The more I researched, the more I admire these beauties. Their designs, functionality, engineering, and workmanship! I also greatly admire the adventurous souls who get to use them.

So always safety first, but what a great way to pay some bills?! Help keep people safe by recommending quality products. That gives me the warm and fuzzies. I’m not going to recommend poor quality products, or something that’s unsafe or doesn’t do what it’s designed to do. That’s not what I’m about. So there you have it. That’s why I’m doing what I’m doing.

That’s about me.
