First off I'd like to thank you all for the resounding welcome to WA. I've been here a couple of weeks without a profile!

I've realised, also after the fact of enrolling, that the publicity I'm seeking through WA will not be consistent with the political climate here at home, at what is a particularly sensitive time (again, damn). So I've resorted to a nom de plume for my profile. I hope you LIKE it.

The 'adult' years go something like this (after surviving high school with the schools biggest truancy record in every one of my four years there):

Twice a post office clerk, twice a stoker on steam locomotives in the banana republic of Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) and twice a forklift driver on the docks of Durban, South Africa.

During my second stint on forklifts I turned twenty one years old with nothing more behind me than when I was the radical sixteen year old who got out of school as fast as he could, after attending as little as he could at that. Not too solid a position for a guy who but months later was thinking to set up home with his prospective bride.

Fast forward to 1978 and my return home to Rhodesia. At least by this time I had gained some experience in the finance game - alongside a lot of bruises on my way to that mediocre status. I had small change in my pocket but I was ripe for a new life and felt very buoyant about it for the first time in ages.

Always the amateur philosopher, my penchant for repetition in the job market - and my hard landings in the romantic one - had me coining a phrase I've had many an occasion to revisit since: "THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL - BUT IF YOU'RE TOO BLIND TO SEE IT, LIFE WILL TAKE YOUR HEAD AND BANG IT ON THE WALL" (idea! Maybe I should launch my first affiliate website selling hard hats and crash helmets! Is this a eureka moment anyone?)

Since those extended experiments in youthful fun and folly I've managed to achieve some local successes in retail, manufacturing and property and actively retired at forty-one years old to speculate stock markets at home and abroad. Perhaps this itself was a return to youthful folly - male menopause writ large?

I almost lost my shirt here and there but overall, wins outdid losses by quite a margin. That is, until yet another of my famous 'doubles' (this time a whammy from hell) wiped me out.

Along with countless others, my offshore share portfolio was butchered in the 2008 global financial collapse. Factor in Zimbabwe's brutal hyperinflation, the second largest in history, and I was finished.

So how did I end up here?

Over the last few years I have signed up for several newsletters by trading my email address for a free eBook, audio or training course etc. Some were pretty useless but some were awesome and I'm still on board there. These were usually about health, motivation or law of attraction. Strangely, I tended to dodge the money enticements.

But about a year ago I did start looking deeper into a couple of email marketing sites and that's when the fullness of the monetising process really began to dawn on me. I realised that I'd been repeatedly 'opting in' to a simple sales pitch with a huge funnel behind it and that if I could be so enticed - and doubtless millions of others - then maybe there was something to it and maybe I could even get a small piece of the cake. Yum!

The newsletters that I stuck with over these years have given me massive value. I haven't made money as an insider yet- I'm still far too overwhelmed and disorganised for that. But I'm making knowledge and experience daily and I'm here to increase that.

I'd also like to give value to those who, hopefully, will one day pop in to see what I am offering online - and trade their hard earned money for my wares.

Again I thank you all for your encouragements and help. And I wish us all good luck and great success.

Hey Sidney, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
