No instant success for me. I would love to say this came naturally to me but the truth is that it's been a long and bumpy road.
I was born in Farnham, Surrey UK and spent my early years in nearby Cobham. In my teens I studied Electronics & Computing, then spent several years in Computer Commissioning for GEC Elliott Marconi, Borehamwood. Later I travelled where the work was and soon notched up an impressive CV working for companies such as IBM, AST Computers and Ernst & Young. But I needed more...
I setup my own company 'Baronet Computer Services Ltd' providing 'Novell' enterprise computer networking services to blue chip companies . This provided good income when I was working but the times between contracts were often long and financially difficult. This was not a good solution to escape the 9 to 5 rat-race and not the answer to my dreams.
I had thrown myself into work after the loss of my first wife and it was inevitable that the crunch had to come. I reached a stage of total burnout. I could work no more and spent half my time at the psych clinic and half my time in the dole queue trying to get welfare. I had really hit rock bottom and didn't know where my next rent payment was coming from.
As I recovered I started to work from home refocusing on the internet and affiliate marketing and like everybody else, bought every shiny object from every dodgy marketer out there. To be honest some of those marketers were probably the genuine article but I didn't have the experience to recognize it was my own misguided expectations that caused me to give up on their products too early.
Eventually I began to have some success with the help of a number of mentors who I trusted to deliver and I launched my first product "Media Buying Mastery' on JVzoo. This also boosted my affiliate marketing as it produced a fruitful buyer list.
By now I had the joy of marrying once again. You can see the the picture of Julie and me boarding Britannia in the days when it was still OK to go on cruise ships. (last covid reference, I promise). I also was back in regular contact with my daughter Danielle from my first marriage at long last.
So as the pendulum of fortune swings around again, I believe it is my turn to give back to those seeking assistance.
