I live in Dublin Ireland with my partner Florica & our beautiful cat Alfie.
I was a professional guitarist for 32 years. Even though quite successful, the late nights, the traveling, and the irregular income gets to you as you get older. In 2011 I had an idea to build a website where anyone interested in learning guitar could;
1 Have everything he/she needed to Learn Guitar At Home
2 Have their guitar, books & accessories delivered to their door
3 For much less than the cost of a guitar teacher
4 Eliminate travel time & costs
5 Learn at your own pace, and
6. Where I could market my own “Teach Yourself” Guitar Books.
I knew almost nothing about working online. And after trying some online training for about two years, and being scammed twice, nothing delivered what it promised.
But everything changed from the moment I joined Wealthy Affiliate in July 2013.
Thanks to the superb training, and 24/7 support, my dream website, HomeGuitarAcademy.com became a reality. And it took only five months to have the site making a consistent monthly income.
Not only that, but with my new found skills, 3 of my "Teach Yourself" guitar books went on to become Amazon #1 Best Sellers. In 4 countries & in 4 languages. And I also teach guitar to beginners live on Skype. And promote the most relevant products for them on Amazon.
Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, I now have 3 full time online incomes (March 2018). And a quality of life I could only dream of in 2013.
