About Androo63
Joined April 2014
I spent 26 years as a teacher of high school students in New Zealand. I taught them Accounting, Business, Economics and Computing. I eventually got to be the Head of the Business Faculty at New Zealand's 12th largest school.

Unfortunately in late 2012 my life came tumbling down, and I lost my job (then house, car etc) and have been on a benefit ever since. Approximately 100 job applications later I'm still looking.

So, I'm starting here from the bottom. I taught business development, and web page creation as part of my programmes, so now feel that I should put these skills into practice.

Update June 2014: Two months in I can add a few changes. Have set up a small business, Loader Internet Services. Trying to do a mix of things online. As well as my first website here, I'm about to work with a friend to create a site for those doing martial arts in New Zealand (his passion, not mine; I'm the computer guy). I also started writing a series of eBooks (the initial ones will be on how to use Microsoft Word, before I diversify). I've also started freelance contracting online, and have been contracted by a Canadian company to write content for websites that they are setting up for clients (currently I'm working on material for an Australian IT company). Life moves on.

Update September 2014: I now spend quite a bit of time each week contract writing. I have two eBooks in the Kindle store. While I haven't gone off the benefit yet I have set January as my target to be off it. My life coaching is near its end, and I have now prepared an Action Plan, primarily focused on creating my passion site http://atruesurvivor.com, where I focus on things such as financial survival, life survival, organisational survival, life rebuilding survival etc. I have just started working on that site this week. Over the next month I start training to be a life coach myself, and that will tie in with the site.

Update October 2014: http://atruesurvivor.com is now live. It is my passion site, and I have told my story on it, warts and all. Over time I hope to build up a huge bank of self-help resources in he areas I referred to in my previous update.

So awesome Andrew, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Sorry, slow off the mark. Been out searching for jobs this week (thought I had a good chance of getting one, but it was not to be). Sick of living on a $260 a week benefit!

Hey Andrew! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. I was checking your profile and saw it hasn't quite been setup yet. I thought I'd share this video in case there were any problems on your end:

Definitely get your account setup. It'll lead to better help within the community. You'll make a better connection with other members with a picture and a short description. We are all people after all.

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! Look forward to seeing you around the site more! :)
