I'm a sixty-two year old Dad of three (adults now but still costing me a fortune!) and I'm continually learning Internet Marketing. I find the Internet to be very fluid when it comes to marketing effectively.
I'm a retired Automotive Engineer (Programme Management), I thought 35+ years of my life making other people wealthy was enough! I have three 'children', a 26 year old son (a Police Officer) and twin 23 year old daughters (Estate Agents).
I have a number of Business websites, it's part of my testing strategy. Whilst I'm not a millionaire, I earn enough for a contented lifestyle.
So, a bit more...
Childhood - Born in 1956, my Dad was an Army Chaplain and my Mum a Piano Teacher. Dad served with the 2nd Parachute Regiment (https://g.co/kgs/1tcQ2U) and his service took us to a number of overseas locations, where I got the bug for travel. I owe a lot to my childhood as it was much more than many had in those days.
Education - Like many military children, I went to boarding school (http://www.methody.org/). It was my fifth school by the age of nine. I didn't enjoy it, being separated from my family. Academic achievements were driven by enthusiastic staff, as were sports, resulting in well rounded school leavers. I went on to an apprenticeship.
Career - I was sponsored by my employer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Specialist_Vehicles) to study Mechanical Engineering (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Portsmouth). After my graduation in 1980, I went back to work in export sales. The combination of working in an industry that I loved and travelling to many new parts of the world put me in my element. In 1984, I moved from Guildford (http://www.guildford.org.uk/) to Gloucester (http://www.thecityofgloucester.co.uk/).
Transition - Continuing in specialist vehicle manufacturing, I moved into management in export sales. For some years I had wanted to work for myself, I craved independence and the ability to fully reward myself for my efforts. I saw the opportunity in Network and Affiliate Marketing. I haven't looked back!
If you've read this far and not fallen asleep, well done and thank you!
