Hi everyone, a couple of lines on who I am, where I came from, and where I hope to go.

Although born in the UK I have only lived some 4 years of my adult life there. The rest has been spent all over the world, notably around Latin America, hence I am tri-lingual with both Spanish and Portuguese as second native languages.

All my working life has been spent in oilfields all around the world. 38 years in all. At the end of October 2014, as a result of the still ongoing depression in the oil industry, my job suddenly disappeared along with tens of thousands of others. I wasted half a year trying to find another, but have seen that when one admits to already being past ¨normal¨ retiring age the stock response from recruiters is ¨sorry, the vacancy was just filled yesterday¨.

So ………….. I need something else to do and here I am, diving in at the deep end with zero knowledge or experience. These I hope to be able to gain quickly enough to meet the challenge of getting a business rolling before savings run out. I expect it to not be easy, but the normal oilfield working day is 12 hours so if I can dedicate even 70% of that time to the new business I would hope it should be enough to get me started relatively quickly. I´m sure some will say that I´m doing this for the wrong reasons, but believe me I can think of no reason better than the need to continue to eat!

Thanks all, looking forward to meeting many of you along the way ………………..
