Hello.
I'm Greg from Melbourne near York in the UK.
I am 70 yrs young and still working 2 part-time jobs.
For 30+ years I worked in Agriculture for 3 international companies until 1999. Agriculture was in the doldrums then, and I took the opportunity to take an early exit package. After 'swanning' around for 3 years converting a barn and building 3 houses and hardly making any money due to the property crash we had in the UK, I was eventually talked into doing a 'Return to teaching' course in the autumn of 2002 (I had trained as a teacher back in 1966 and taught for 4 years). I started Supply teaching in Jan 2003 - and called it a day in December 2014 (I'll tell you why if you get back to me!).

I had a stroke in January 2012 and this is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, as we say. Recovery takes time whether it is physical or mental. Anyway, well on my way - no physical damage but concentration a problem at times, so - little and often is my strategy.

Onward and upwards!

One of my part-time jobs is as a site inspector and adviser for agricultural distributor premises covering the North East of England doing compliance checks relevant to the Code of Practice which applies.

My second part time job is again linked to farming. I now visit farms to do Farm Assurance Audits on Combinable Crops and Sugar Beet. More applicable to my years of experience in agriculture - bit more travelling though!

8th Oct 2015 Update. Still taking the pills! - busy as I want to be with the two jobs. I'm getting stuck into the latest part-time role as mentioned above and the two jobs are now almost full time - definitely could be if I wanted to.

Hey Ho!

Jan 2016: 15 months on and still here! The last year or so has been really interesting - chatting to farmers as I do my Assurance audits is a real benefit.
Surprisingly, I have missed doing some teaching - didn't think I would!
I had a bit of a problem with my medication in the summer but a bit of a rest and review with the Doc sorted things out.....Lol!
Anyway, as I say - Onward and Upwards.+

Hello! I'm still here but have been out of touch for ages.
I was 73 in August and still battling on (and the pills are still working!). My main focus up to now has been trying to make a go of marketing High Ticket Affiliate Products. I say trying because I am still waiting for my first High Ticket sale!
All this time I may have been focusing on the wrong things, spending boat loads of money on 'shiny objects' and getting nowhere. It is time to concentrate on progressing my targeted marketing

Once again: Onward and Upwards (but keep my focus this time on learning how to market High Ticket products effectively)

Hi Greg and thank you for allowing me into your network. Unfortunately not so many children are taught respect these days - the world owes most of them you'd think. I cringe sometimes when I pick my son up from school - and it's high school next year (sigh). At least you are over the worst and it is excellent news to read that you are getting healthier bit by bit. I wish you all the best for the future Greg, and with your time here at WA, with all of us.

Hi EddieBush. I think you may be thinking of Melbourne about 12,000 miles from the Melbourne in Yorkshire, England. Common mistake though. Where do you hail from?
Reply
EddieBush Premium
Ah! Tired eyes. They get me every time!

I'm from about the middle of the US. Oklahoma. I'd hardly call the area I am in a burgeoning metropolis, but it's home and I like it :-)

Apologies for the mistake!

SpidersWeb Premium
This Melbourne has about 275 homes so not a metropolis either, Nearest large town is York. Not all that big either but ancient (Roman city).
Reply
EddieBush Premium
I like small, personally. There's more room to breathe. I've found I don't care much for having people living just beside - or on top of - me.

It's more difficult to make a lucrative living in a rural setting though. I guess that's part of why I'm here - to cut my commute :-)

Hi Greg,
keep calm and persistent. That is not to have too much toubles with your bloodpressure. Young people in future will need work and areas where they can raise their food, gardening for their onw use.
You could build a network-club with a smal-fee for membership and organize some education and consulting suche groups, because the more the European industry is outsourcing well paid work to far East, the more unemploees we will get and they need something to live on.

Hi Greg
My, you sound like a hard worker, a very busy man; sixty eight and doing two part time jobs, I take my hat off to you: and thank you for the 'follow' Greg, I really do appreciate it. I see that you've been a member here, since June this year? If you have already completed your first web site, maybe you can give me a couple of tips. I've almost completed my first and should have it published over the weekend, hopefully.
Sorry to hear about your health problems Greg, a stroke is not something one thinks will ever happen to yourself. However, I've had a couple of friends who have had strokes and with the modern medical techniques available nowadays, people are recovering much better than they did years ago.
You are very wise in what you say though, "little and often", that's the safest way for people who have suffered a stroke. I'm not a million miles away from where you live Greg, I live in Liverpool. I hope you keep,on getting better. Live long and prosper

Hi, Thanks muchly for your kind words. I have been very lax in working within WA. I have been really busy with my jobs as I fell downstairs while trying to get upstairs (if you get the gist!) in May which resulted in 3 broken ribs. I was advised not to drive as a sudden braking would not help the repair process (seat belt) so had 6 weeks not doing much. I'll keep in touch as I'm going to complete 'boot camp' training over the next few weeks. Let me know how your website comes along.

Hi Kyle,
Many thanks for your welcome email. I have added a photo to my profile which will do until I manage to get a more photogenic one (bit difficult - I hate cameras). I have also upgraded to Premium level - last evening.
I am really looking forward to the training. It will be great to eventually be able to earn from home and supplement my pension.
Looking forward to talking to you later,

Kind regards,

Greg
