Hi, & thanks for taking the time to get to know me, I appreciate it.
I’ll be upfront about this right from the start – I’m a geek!
There, I said it. I love all things ‘techy’. I enjoy fixing things; Learning about new technology is one of my passions; I try to keep up with the world of science, all of science. My qualifications include an HND in Micro-Electronics, I’m a qualified electrician and also a qualified plumber. My first ‘computer’ was one I built in 1981, the Sinclair ZX81 – it was nothing like the all-singing, all-dancing computers of today. It had only 1K of memory, yes 1K & no hard drive.
That was the beginning of a love affair with computers, then the internet, and ultimately internet marketing.
I joined the REME in the British Army as an electronics technician in 1979, and have been involved in building, fixing and servicing some form of computer ever since.
I first got involved in making money online, like most people, with eBay. I’d got sick of trying to earn a little extra money by getting up at silly-o’clock on a Sunday morning, to go and stand in the cold and rain at a car boot sale. I thought there had to be a better way, and then someone showed me eBay. I put up a few things I wanted to get rid of, and some of them sold. I thought that this could be easy money, but it was a lot harder than I thought. I slogged and slogged in my spare time, while holding down a full time job to keep a roof over our heads. I even made it to “PowerSeller” for a while. Unfortunately, no matter how popular an item is, it eventually goes out of fashion and you need to find the next big thing to sell.
So I started looking around outside of eBay. I thought that there had to be better ways to earn money online, and I found that there was. I discovered ‘internet marketing’. It all seemed so easy – buld a little site, place a few links, add some adsense adverts, you’ll be rich by tea-time! Oh, if only it was so easy. I have spent the last few years bouncing around, earning little bits here and there, but I think I’ve spent more trying to earn money, than I’ve actually earned.
So now I’ve decided to invest in my future. I’ve invested in Dean Holland’s “Quick Start Challenge” course. It’s been said – “if you want to make money, find someone who is already successful, and do what they do”, or even better, get them to teach you. So I got me a mentor!
No idea where this is going to lead me, but I do know that it’s going to help me to become successful, so watch this space.
