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.

Not certain if it's my new theme or what, but when you do a FB like it does look a bit weird (although the count goes up, so I suppose it does actually count as a Like). The Twitter, Google + and Facebook Share all work ok. I suppose its possible that that particular plugin hasn't been updated for Wordpress 4.0 . I will keep an eye on things, and if nothing is repaired in the foreseeable future I'll change my plugin.

Thanks for telling me. I've been to your interesting website and liked your Facebook page. I've become a fan of the law of attraction as part of my life coaching.

Positive thinking goes a long, long way. Many folks feel that positive thinking plus related positive actions will go much, much further. Hmmm. Whatchathink?

Yes, definitely agree with that (you sound like my other Larry, my life coach). It has to be a mix of the two. If you think positively you are more likely to take the correct positive actions

Hi Andrew. Thanks for the follow and great name you have slight variation but you are NZ and I'm OZ close enough he-he. I understand with the Accounting aspect and the 100 plus job applications, I too lost my job via retrenchments after being in the same place for over 11 year dealing with as Supervisor with AR/AP Having a qualification can also go against you along with the older age bracket sometimes. They can't discriminate but there are way around the response reply email you get back. That is those that do reply. So I know how you feel. I am doing a online course to gain my Executive Diploma just to learn few extra parts I was not able to do because our CPA's would allow Accountant to do some things. Struggling with some of this lessons now but hopefully will get them done. I am also trying to get a business online going so I know how you feel. Wishing you the best may you life and situation improve greatly asap. Take care and be well.

Hi Larry. Yes I read your profile - long but very informative. My first niche shows my nerdy side - merchandise from the British tv show Doctor Who (books, dvd, cds etc). Already have plans for about 3 or 4 sites, once this first one is underway
