About Greensail
Joined August 2018
Closing in on the age where I need to find something that will go someway to supporting a reasonable lifestyle in retirement.
Although I guess you never really retire, We just look for another way to have income once we leave the mainstream work force.

I started out as a tradesman, building cottages, then moved onto larger projects in the building and construction industry. Eventually becoming a construction manager.

I am now away from the the planning, phone calls, meetings, look ahead planning, variations, progress or lack of it, paper work, emails, rescheduling, labor issues, sub contractors, questions on the design plans, H&S, pre- starts, environmental. Requests for information, emails, did I mention paperwork. Lots of that.

The world is changing. When tier one companies are managing government jobs less than a $1 million in value, there is a problem. They are too top heavy and bureaucratic, (people creating work for themselves to justify their position).

My last job was initially worth $870,000 and timed at 3 months. 12 months and $5 million later we completed it.

Still, for all that, we only earn an income if we give. Someone gave us a job, we gave labor and received something for our efforts. If I gave value I kept my job.

Although I was fairly well compensated in my construction management job, it never really translated to financial security. It is an industry with booms and busts.

I like to travel, not as a tourist, but as an explorer. I have Tesol and Teflen credentials, So If I am teaching English to speakers of another language, I am able to stay longer, and see more with the income covering some of my expenses. And give others opportunity for participation in the wider world.

The exchange of giving and receiving follows us through life.

I will leave this quote.

"People are eternally divided into two classes, the believer, builder, and praise'r...and the unbeliever, destroyer and critic."

Still in Colombia. They have extended the isolation until the 25th. Wonder how long the Colombians will put up with that. Stuffs things up a little for me,
One 3800 word blog post on drop shipping done on the weekend. Easy for me I have done it. I actually like it better than Affiliate marketing. !!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
