Hi, my name is Patricia “Trish” Kemke and I don’t have a rags to riches, “overcoming” adversity story to share with you as many online marketers seem to do.
My life has been blessed with family and friends who love me and many opportunities to pursue my dreams and goals and the resources to do so. People like to know who they are interacting with so here is a little more about me.
This is a picture from one of my earliest memories. I was 3 years old, it was Thanksgiving day at my Grandparents house and my Grandmother had given me the wishbone from the big turkey to make a wish with. I still vividly remember that day. The wonderful smells coming from the kitchen, Roast turkey, dressing and my favorite traditional candied yams simmered for hours with brown sugar and butter, not marshmallows. My Grandmother taught me to make divinity and fudge. In my early adult life I took care of her when she was sick with pancreatic cancer. I have a very large extended family as both my Mom and Dad come from families of 9 kids each. I had a very happy childhood until my parents divorced when I was 13. I have one brother and one sister. I attended college at University Wisconsin Milwaukee.
My professional training is in computer information systems: systems administration, control system programming, web development, database development & programming, video creation and graphic design.
I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer MCSE. I am also CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ certified.
I have an insatiable curiosity about most things computer related, in other words I am a “geek”, more appropriately, a “geekette.”
Aside from being a “geekette” I have a very creative side too. I am also a digital artist and my work has been featured on Fine Art America in the past.
Years ago I read Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad I was introduced to the concept and benefit of creating of multiple streams of passive income. Since then I have tried to create multiple streams of income. In one of my forays into the world of making a living online someone had a webinar on writing books and publishing them on Amazon. You can see my books on Amazon here Patricia Kemke.
One of my husband’s passions (besides me) is Economics: Behavioral Finance and Retirement Planning. So we also wrote a book on this subject as well and you can see it here – Gambler’s Guide to the Sock Market: 7 Winning Retirement Planning Investment Strategies for Your 401k, Traditional IRA and Roth IRA. (P.S. we published under a pen name.)
My creative explorations have included; stained glass, jewelry, commissioned colored pencil portraits, and digital oil paintings.
I lead a quiet and peaceful life, happily married to my best friend and the love of my life Larry Kemke for 26 years, so far.
I am self employed and have worked online from home for the last 10 plus years.
We were never blessed with children but we did have 2 beautiful German Shepherds for 13 years, Hannah and Sarah. I referred to them as my “4 footed” hairy children. They brought unbelievable joy and love to my life and heart breaking sorrow when they left. For so many people their pets are a part of their families and ours were too.
I hate to be bored so I keep busy with many hobbies and educational endeavors. I love to laugh and learn new things every day.
My latest artistic fascination, the creation of fractal art, has merged both my logical and creative processes. Fractals, composed on the computer, utilize algorithmic formulas to produce amazingly beautiful, intricately detailed, highly individual creations. Again you can see my artwork here.
Of the things you do on a daily basis, you never know what will have a lasting impact on your life. I once attended a sales seminar by Zig Ziglar and his passion and drive to help others was amazing if not truly contagious.
My favorite quote from Mr. Ziglar is “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” That quote has colored my world and become a rule that I live by.
The creative side of me has loved and been fascinated by sales, advertising and marketing all my life and helping people succeed is one of my passions.
I am happy to help you achieve your advertising and marketing business goals. Please contact me today if I can help you achieve your goals.
