JOURNEY THROUGH TIME
How I Happened To Become An Online Marketer
Hi and welcome to my website!
I'm gonna cut to the chase and give you a quick summary of where I'm from, what I did to get where I am and what I do now…
I was born in Durban, South Africa during the 70's.
South Africa was an amazing experience growing up, it's something that I can always look back on and be able to tell stories of what we got up to 😉
Durban, South Africa in the 70's & 80's
In 1996 I was given the opportunity to move to the UK (England).
My father was British so I had no trouble getting a British passport.
I jumped on a plane and landed in the UK.
I began a new life here starting out on an assembly line.
Mundane work making video circuit boards for Samsung monitors.
But I eventually became team leader and then moved into IT management.
From there I did some self-study and got an MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) accreditation.
Where in 2001 I landed a good job as an IT Systems Engineer in Derbyshire (Middle of England).
Whilst working my 9 to 5:30pm job I studied further and gained MCSA & MCSE qualifications in computer systems & networking.
In 2007 my long time friend Andre Chaperon approached me…
He said: “Dude, do you really want to be stuck doing your job for the rest of your life?”
I took a second before I answered…
Continuing he said: “Why don't you move to Spain with us? Quit your job, I'll show you the ropes online.”
Maybe it's my star sign…
Maybe it's because I LOVE adventure…
Maybe it's because I was tired of my job… same bosses, same deadlines, same pressures…
I knew I could do better.
I could do it for my family.
So I pretty much packed everything up, sold the house and moved to Spain!
And that was October 2017!
Yes, Andre showed me the ropes.
But it's never as easy as 1, 2, 3…
There were many 16 hour days, 7 day weeks struggling, stressing, worrying if I was gonna make it.
I wasted a boat load of cash buying into the garbage that promised “quick riches”.
Even though I was warned – I still did it!
Stupid – I know. But live and learn eh 😉
I eventually learned & devised my own “system” that I stuck to and followed.
It worked, it made money, and my biggest lesson I learned is:
“Focus on what NEEDS to be done to GET it done”.
In fact, I'm gonna make that an inspirational quote! 🙂
To cut a very long story to just long…
I spent 7 great years in Spain.
But due to family and commitments I moved back to the UK (Scotland) in January 2014.
Life has never been better.
It's come to a point where I don't think I'd be able to work for “someone”.
I'd find it VERY VERY difficult.
Being able to have the freedom to wake up when you want, go to bed when you want, go on a holiday when you want, pretty much do what you want when you want…
Is totally amazing.
I also help others (firm believer in “paying it forward”) via mentoring.
Some achieve financial freedom, some don't.
You can lead a horse to water – but you can't make it drink.
Success is almost nearly always up to the individual and how committed they are.
