About Part290861
Joined October 2013
I am 52 yrs old and due to my hearing loss I will eventually need to rely on the internet to build an income and a residual income.

I originate from Rhodesia (Now Zimbabwe) where I was born, grew up and did my National Service. I had a wonderful upbringing and loved the open spaces and the bush and animals. I had the opportunity to live on a farm for a number of years and in Salisbury (Harare).

I was very active and played many sports being rugby, cricket, squash, athletics etc. I just loved the sports at school and did very well, winning trophies in most sports from junior school through to senior school. I currently hold the most capped player in rugby at senior school where I started playing in form 2.

My academic side was not that great and felt not necessary, but wished I had put more effort into achieving better results. I think it was not the effort but the way I studied. There is a technique to how one needs to study and I did not know how to do that which led to me failing.

I also did my National Service in RLI (An Elite Unit) in the Rhodesian War. It was great. It gave me great experience and I made a lot of young friends.

I left Rhodesia (Now Zimbabwe) in 1981 for South Africa. It was hard as I left all my friends I had known from a young age and ventured to Johannesburg where I knew no-one. It takes time to build a good network of friends and every time you move you are having to start again.

I ended doing a trade and qualified as an Electrician with distinction. I studied further and did many courses.

I stayed in it for a number of years before moving into the Sales & Marketing where I focused on Electronic Security Systems. I have project management experience and design experience and sales in dealing with existing and new potential customers.

I of course joined a club and continued to play rugby and squash where it kept me busy over weekends and socially enjoyed myself.

I met my lovely wife Jenny in Johannesburg. We went out a while and traveled together around Europe. We eventually got married. Been married now for 27 years and together 29 or 30 years. We have two lovely children (Matt and Jax). They are very special and have done very well for themselves I am very proud of them both.

Due to the political unrest and especially the crime, we decided to venture across to England. We have been here now since 2003. I miss Africa terribly and will one day venture back to live or look at a better climate to live. I find the winters very long and can be very harsh at times.

Over the years I have learnt everything about the computer myself - self taught. I am now very computer literate. Over the year I have tried to look at various opportunities in attempting to secure a residual income on the internet. I have also tried MLM companies. I would say it is still work in progress and hopefully will find something that will give me a long and rewarding business on the internet.

I have had success and failures throughout my life, but just looking to make a simple living and be a happy spirit.. Coming from Africa I love the bush and passionate about wildlife and conservation and would be happy helping communities in transferring my many skills I have developed over the years. I love many sports and especially rugby, cricket, tennis and other. I just love adventure and love to travel. I look forward to working with Tom Price and many others and receiving the support to help me make this a success and turn it into a business that will in time give me a residual income that I need as I do not have a pension, so this needs to work for me.
