About Chartreux
Joined July 2014
Born, bred and educated in London, England, I now live in Sydney, Australia.

I began my working life as a Naval Officer in the British Royal Navy. Then, after emigrating to Australia, I embarked on a career in sales. I now have over 35 years experience in sales, marketing, and business management across several service industries - finance; emergency evacuation services; and education.

I currently work full time selling educational resources, but I'm hoping that WA will enable me to retire from the corporate grind and help me achieve my goal, which very simply and singularly is:

TO BECOME FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT WITHIN 12 MONTHS

Married for 43 years (to the same woman!), I have 4 children and 9 grandchildren.

I love travelling; music (listening and playing [guitar and keyboard]); reading; and writing.

Good to meet a fellow Aussie. 43 years marriage is impressive, but you have another ten grandchildren to go to catch up to me.

Hi Phil. Thanks for connecting and for your kind comment on my site. Although I've been here since July, I'm stuck on Training Course 2. I still work full time, so trying to find the time to devote to WA is not easy. But I'm in no hurry - I just keep plodding along.
I had a look at your site and I really like it - great subject matter and content, and the layout and formatting is clear and engaging. You also write very well. Congrats! All the very best. Peter

Thanks Peter, if you like what you saw you're going to be very impressed with the changes I've got coming up to my website. I'm planning a relaunch, when it's done.

I really think my season is going to come in January with all of those "New Year Resolutions". Do you do those in England also?

Welcome to WA. Hope you find it as helpful as I have. Best $47 I spend every month. Since you just became premium I share key bit of wisdom. Key to success is to learn failure is good probably better than being successful. I fail at least 9 times a month but I win at least once a month. That's a 10% success rate. All winners lose alot. That's why so few rich people. Most give up after first loss. Failure weeds out the weak so only the strong survive. Hope you see your first monthly payment is worth it just for that golden nugget of info. Sure alot pay a $20 just to be given most important piece of advise.

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
