About Gmcwilliam
Joined September 2018
Hi everybody, my name is Gary. I am 57 years old and was born in Melbourne, Australia. I have worked in the Oil and Gas industry for more than 35 years and have spent the last 18 months working on a fly in / fly out roster in Somaliland. To shorten the commute, I holiday on my off time with my wife in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and we have used our time to explore most countries in SE Asia.

I am at the point in my life where I can be semi retired and work here and there as opportunities come up. We have planned well for retirement since an early age so now I would like to change direction and start an online business that I can run whether I am working in Africa or not (or anywhere else in the world). I would like to provide guidance and coaching to other people who are nearing retirement and maybe want to bring it forward so that they may have more time to enjoy the finer things in life.

I would also love to be in a position where I can help the people of Somaliland; both through training in online business and also by drilling water wells to help some of the most needy people on the planet. It is difficult to work in a place where basic needs cannot always be met (food, water and shelter). I have the skills and contacts to provide support to these people and would like to make it a life goal to help prevent further hardship.

I see a great community in WA and hope that I can provide as much support to the community as they show me. Here's to great success, together!

OMG your an AWESOME PERSON !! In many parts of the world Seeing children go hungry with no access to clean water, it kills me to see that. Then you see a group of wonderful people get together & dig a well for a small needy community. & then seeing the kids happily washing there little faces with there hands & drinking pure clean water. Makes me cry. I wish you all the success in the world !!!

Hi Gary. I just read your profile and could immediately see you are kind and caring person. You understand what real problems are in life like not having drinkable water. Something that simple is often taken for granite. I sincerely wish you all the best and hope you are able to retire wealthy, but more importantly happy. I will be following you and best of luck Gary.

Hello Gary And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thanks for the follow. I am currently working my way through the training, built a website and built websites for other people to pay for my Yearly Premium subscription. I think it is now time to pick up some mentors to make sure I can maintain my focus on my goals.

Hi Gary,
Thanks for following me and the kind words you left on my profile site. I am not happy or passionate about my current niche (how to sleep better) and everyone keeps saying I should use my background in photography...I'm really thinking on it. But what I do like is your passion for the poor in Somaliland. When I was active in Rotary International a few years ago, I originated a project in Peru, similar to your proposal. People here in the United States have little understanding of the need for palatable water around the world. Many of them think water comes in landfill clogging plastic bottles, but can enjoy tap water that is pure. The people in countries like Peru and Somaliland drink water that can shorten their lives by 10 to 20 years. Pure water is only a dream.
I wish you well with your project. We were able to supply 150 families with filtration systems that effected the lives of more than 500 people and gave them pest, virus and toxin free water to drink.
Thanks again for the kind words and I look forward to following your progress.

Love the backstory. I am Australian, Sydney based, but moving my business online and remote, with a similar focus very much similar to yours. I call it the 2nd Act Launch, and there will be a need for many of the 40+ to have a supplementary income to support their super through the latter stages of life. Good luck & we should hook up at some stage.

Dear Gary -- your kindness is being returned a least a thousand-fold! ...

Your efforts in striving to ensure that 'basic needs of water, food, shelter' are being met are admirable and right on good for humanity on earth ... it's the current 're-allocative' system that needs to be changed ... we can discuss this at length... :)

Feel we are very fortunate to know you here -- sounds like you are already doing great work!

All the best for every success, cheerio... 😊 ...
