About Us, Mike and Vicki Simons
We are Mike and Vicki Simons. We’ve been sharing money saving tips online since the mid-1990s. As of October 2016, we’ve been married 25 years. We’ve had a very diverse occupational background, encompassing both white collar and blue collar work.
Mike has used his B.A. in Bible, M.A. in Theology and credits toward a Master of Education degree to teach in Christian schools.
Vicki has a B.S. degree in chemistry. She worked for a number of years in the textile and chemical industries before meeting and marrying Mike.
During our first year of married life, Mike was handed an application for a nationwide trucking company. Through a most adventurous series of events, we both ended up going to and graduating from truck driver training school. We were a husband-and-wife truck driving team for almost three years. Mike has been in and out of the trucking industry several times over the years.
After Vicki finished her work for a statewide educational organization in 2008, she prayed about how to use her “gifts” of researching and writing. In January 2009, we launched Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com to help professional truck drivers — and those looking to enter the trucking industry as truckers — save money. Whenever asked what her job is, she responds that she is an “infopreneur.”
We have sought to use the time, talents and treasures that the Lord has given to us to honor and glorify Him. In early 2010, we formed a limited liability company (LLC) — NKBJ InfoNet, LLC — in our home state of South Carolina and began making money from our truck driver-oriented site.
In late 2010 and early 2011, Mike made some transitions, including becoming a local truck driver hauling flatbed loads.
In February 2012, Mike was severely injured in an on-the-job trucking accident. The Lord healed Mike completely in significant part due to a sample of an essential oil blend — and more of that product that we purchased — both from Young Living Essential Oils. Mike’s recovery from that injury led to a significant turn in our business. Read more about Mike’s accident and recovery — and our paradigm shift.
We are seeking to replace through our business the income that Vicki would have been earning in industry and then Mike’s income. Care to join us on this exciting journey as we help people achieve wellness, purpose and abundance?
