About Funkydunc208
Joined March 2015
I am a disciplined, motivated, self-starter who enjoys mentoring others. I have embarked on a new career path after 18 years operating and owning a business in the service industry on the East Coast of Australia.

I have been happily married for 33 years to an amazing woman who is a qualified counsellor but is not practicing at present. We have developed a great understanding of communication styles, learning styles and how to resolve conflict.

April 2016, the start of my second year at Wealthy Affiliate, ends my time living in Asia. We spent the past 14 months in Thailand adjusting to the cultural divide between West and East. It has been a great learning experience. My wife's parents need greater support and so from the beginning of May 2016, we returned to Australia. Living with them affords us the opportunity to do more to help them with their advancing age and failing health.

June 2016 to August 2016 - I started a part-time job as a barista. It was in a funky little cafe in Brisbane, owned by an outgoing Chilean man who has a driving passion for amazing coffee and great food. The lively sounds of South American music pumps through the place and friends come to eat, drink and just hang out. It has been a dream of mine for years to work in this industry and the opportunity was worth trying out. It was a job for the love not the money, so I wasn't going to stay there indefinitely.

August 2016 saw me return to the business that I love - window washing. It has served us well financially for many years and now I am back helping people have a better outlook. First thing I did was to build a website for my re-launched business. How cool it was to use the training here at Wealthy Affiliate Network to that end.

Apart from coffee being a passion, playing guitar is a relaxing pastime and reading educates my soul. Watching sport from around the world is another enjoyable pastime. Wealthy Affiliate has also built in me a greater interest in the online marketing world and I hope one day soon I will begin studying HTML coding and become proficient at it. Life takes some interesting turns if we don't baulk at the fork in the road.

Chat soon.

Hi Duncan,

It's lovely to meet you. I'm guessing you have a Scottish ancestry with a name like yours. My granddad and nephew are both Duncans, and I would have been too, had I been born a boy!

I love that you are doing so much in your community, as well as working online. The coffee shop you're working in sounds great.

Looking forward to interacting more.

All the best,

Jules

Thank you, Jules. Duncan is a name that makes you stand out a bit although as a child and teen it caused me some grief due to other kids using it derogatorily.

But I love it now. Had real character. The only other Jules I have heard of is Jamie Oliver's wife.

Catch up soon.

Duncan

Thank you for following me Duncan. I'm now following you as well. Sounds like you have your ideal life now or close to it. Maybe I'll catch you on here sometime. My son helps me out with my site a bit. He wants to learn more about coding too. Have a great day. :-)

Thank you for the kind thoughts. How nice that you have involved your son in the online activity. Here is an online resource I found to teach you how to to HTML coding:

I'll tell him about this link, thank you. He was in school but had to drop out before he could finish due to a divorce. So he really wants to go back to school and finish what he started. I've told him just because he can't afford to go back to school yet, doesn't mean he can't learn what he wants to learn while he's working.

Hi Duncan. Thank you for the follow.
It was a pleasure reading your profile.
You had me at coffee. :)

I can appreciate your efforts in the disabled community. I was a host home provider to mentally disabled adults for a few years and it was a great experience for both myself and my kids.
