Dream Every Day!
Take Action Every Day!
Never Ever Quit!
Hello and welcome to my website, thank you so much for visiting.
So, what can I say about myself, I am married, two kids, aged 15 and 11, I live on the beautiful Isle of Wight in the UK and I am a born and bred entrepreneur!
I have since school always looked to try new things and was never afraid to take a risk on a business idea.
I remember my first business endeavour was running a Christmas card printing service when I was at high school. I actually did quite well and made a fair bit of money! But, unfortunately as a teenager, I ended up spending most of the money I made on superfluous stuff, oh well, easy come easy go!
I then spent some time in the South African Defence Force in the Parachute Regiment doing my National Service. When I finished I did not really have any idea of what I wanted to do so I went to technical college and studied accounting and computers. I loved the computers and hated the accountancy.
The next stage of my life was probably very typical to most people’s in that I got a J.O.B., which by the way stands for (JUST OVER BROKE), got another job, got made redundant and then got another job. I seem to remember at this stage that I was running a transport company and was working probably 70 – 80 hours every week, Saturdays and Sundays as well!
I then got married, had my kids and was now well and truly stuck on the hamster wheel of life! It was at this point that I tried getting into business for myself. I started with a Network Marketing company, spent a fortune on the business and nothing changed!
I then tried it again with a different Network Marketing company, I did exactly the same things, albeit in a slightly different order and surprise surprise, still nothing changed.
To push it even further, I then got into business for myself running a transport company and guess what, the market changed and I had to close the business down!
Although I felt like a massive failure, not only to myself but my family as well, I used the experience to my advantage and it has stood me in good stead thus far!
It was at this point that together with my wife, we re-evaluated our life and made the very difficult decision to emigrate from South Africa to the United Kingdom to start afresh!
It was not an easy decision let me tell you, we left behind all our friends and family and the last few years have been very difficult as we have had to completely start over.
But, I would not go back in time, it was still the best decision I have ever made, albeit a very difficult one!
Since being in the UK, I have gone from strength to strength, started my own business(Network Marketing) and I am now starting to see the success that has eluded me for so long. The reason for this is that for so long I was just not doing things correctly. Well, a little over a year ago I found this guide online that resonated so much with me that I now apply it in everything I do these days. It got me to rethink my entire business model!
The manual or guide I am referring to is Magnetic Sponsoring by Mike Dillard, a book I wholeheartedly endorse and suggest that anybody involved in this industry needs to read before starting anything. I am now seeing success with many avenues I never even considered previously, but with effort and determination, anyone can succeed at anything!
My wife is without a doubt my biggest supporter, my ally, my partner and my best friend and without her I would be less than I am! She has allowed me the freedom to pursue my dream of being independent and she continues with her support of that quest still today. She has allowed me to be a father, a husband and an entrepreneur.
