Welcome to “My LED Passion”
name is Ron Stansell and I have been in the electronics business for
over 35 years.
As for me personally, I'm tall, 6'6", and around
50 years old. I'm married to a beautiful Austrian named Martina. Our
interests together include gardening and landscaping our 1 acre
oasis. My personal interests are many, including golf, bowling (when
my knees say it's OK), electronics and photography.
Professionally I ran my own business out of my home. It was simply
called “Ron’s Stereo and VCR Repair”. As the name implies, my
specialty was Stereo and VCR Repair.
But let’s not get ahead of
started in High School
It all began back in 1974 when I was 15 years old. Actually it
probably started earlier since I used to love to take things apart
so that I could see how they worked, but the electronics part
started in 10th grade at Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood, WA.
I needed to pick a class as an elective and I didn’t want to do
Drama class. I have trouble standing up in front of the mirror and
speaking let alone standing in front of actual people. Well the only
other classes to choose from were Home Economics, or Electronics. As
a teenage boy, cooking and sewing were not on my list of things to
do for fun (although the girls were a consideration) so I picked
I was afraid it was going to be really hard
with all the math and rocket science kinda stuff but it actually
turned out to be a lot of fun. I got to tear things apart and
actually learned how they worked.
And continued in college
My life in electronics had begun. I
messed around in other lines of work for a few years but when I was
19, I went to Portland Community College and started my quest for a
two year Associates of Applied Sciences Degree.
I finished my
first year and moved to Lynnwood, Washington and actually got a job
at an Avionics company in Lynnwood called ELDEC Corp. where I
started out in transformer testing. As I moved up in the company I
got to work on a brand new project (back then) called the ‘Space
Shuttle’, where I tested parts for the inside of the cockpit.
During that time I did a quarter towards my AA degree at North
Seattle Community College. A while later I moved to Sumner,
Washington and finished my AA degree at Green River Community
College in Auburn, Washington.
This is where my real education
In 1981 I
started working at a medical ultrasound company in Bothell,
Washington called Advanced Technology Labs. Last time I checked it
operated as a subsidiary of Philips Ultrasound, Inc. There, I
learned a great deal about electronics including digital and
microprocessors. I also learned a lot about medical ultrasound and
the methods used to ‘see’ into the human body. Very enlightening. I
also learned all about VCR's since they were incorporated into their
In Sept. of 1986, I quit working at ATL to raise my
newborn daughter and start my own business at home.
My own business
As I said earlier, it was called
“Ron’s Stereo and VCR Repair”. I was quite successful working at
home for a while until circumstances caused me to re-enter the
workforce as an Avionics technician at a company in Auburn,
Washington called Aero Controls Inc.
I worked in the Electronics
Dept. repairing cockpit modules and electronic systems for several
different kinds of jets including the Boeing 727 through the 757.
After 6 ½ years there, medical problems forced me to leave the
2 years of
I tried and
tried to use my computer skills to make money on the internet but I
just couldn’t seem to get it right.
I tried selling men's and
women's designer fashions. Ebay wouldn’t cooperate. I tried doing my
own affiliate website but I just didn’t know enough about how to do
I spent several months learning about, and then getting my
insurance agents license so that I could sell a Whole Life Insurance
policy through a company with the idea to “Bank on Yourself™”. A
great way to save money. My problem is, I am not a salesman. I just
don’t have the knack for selling.
So now what?
In my quest to find something to make
a living, from home, on my time, without a boss looking over my
shoulder, I decided to look into
affiliate websites again.
Like an offering from above
My first search through Google, and I start
seeing it: “SBI”, “Site Build It”. So I checked it out and
discovered what I had been searching for, for over 2 years: a way to
build an affiliate website that comes with everything I need to
