Welcome everyone you found me! and I am happy that you are here.
My name is Viviana and you might either know me at a personal level or you found my site on icomputernerd.com. I created this website to help others achieve their goals in online businesses and work for themselves.
So whether you’re looking to create a website for personal branding or e-commerce, even if you want to do it as a hobby or a full-time gig I am going to show you what I have been doing and help you along the way.
At the age of 17, I wanted to become a more independent individual. I moved out of my parent’s apartment when I was only 18 years old and have never gone back since.
How did I do it? Man, sometimes I think to myself how did I? then I pat myself on the back and give myself a kiss. Especially when you are a young mom, going to school full time and having a full-time job. I have a great personality I am also very caring but not afraid to say what’s on my mind. “Like literally”
I followed people that were older than me and mimic what they did and how they were able to become successful not just with their careers but with themselves on a personal level. I have so much fun meeting new people that allow me to be myself.
In 2001 at the age of 21, I went to school to become an accountant, I earned my degree at Interboro Institue in New York City.
Shortly after graduation I went on and managed several retail stores for different companies like the Bombay company and Jennifer Convertibles yea that was way back.
But I wanted more I wasn’t content and felt like I was in a stagnant position in my life. I needed to learn more about me and what I was capable of accomplishing.
So in 2008 at the age of 27, I went to the police academy and became a New York City Police Officer for a little over 2 years. I realized when I was about 6 months into the command that it was something I definitely did not want to pursue.
I witnessed some tragedies along with foul play in the short time I was there so I became insubordinate and eventually my relationship with the NYPD ended.
In 2011, I went back to school to obtain my bachelors in computer forensics where I started working on programming with C# as well as some HTML coding. I then started creating websites as part of my class assignments.
At the time there weren’t many platforms that can help you design websites everything was all about coding.
In addition to my other majors, I was writing case studies after case studies for my classes which then led to doing some assignments and resumes on the side for cash. All of my work has been related to technology, computers, networking etc.
I found myself helping others with their classes, I also started creating websites here and there sometimes for cash and other times for conversations.
It felt really good helping and networking with like-minded people such as myself.
I always wanted to continue learning from others and wanted to return the favor.
In 2014 I went to Keller Graduates University to obtain my Master’s Degree in the professional studies of Information Technology.
I did all this working full time and managing my personal life with my children.
In 2016 I graduated and received my Masters which was a huge relief for me along with an accomplishment.
That year I also moved to Florida for work purposes. I currently live with my amazing boyfriend Albert and OH the french bulldog. We call him Batman or as my sister in Law Karina likes to call him BAD MAN! HA.
I then went back to school like what I had wasn’t enough and started taking classes for my CCNA “Cisco Certified Network Associate” at the University of Phoenix.
I then became intrigued by starting a business for myself. I kept thinking what am I good at and what can I do to help people that have a need for something.
I was tired of my job and I wanted to be my own boss and have that financial freedom that I wanted along with the ability to help others. I mean going to school all these years isn’t for nothing, because it surely paid off.
