I left school at 16 with just a few qualifications. I didn’t really try hard at school spent most of the time messing around with my mates and chasing girls :-))
For the next few years I went from job to job mostly laboring in the building trade, I thought to myself this can’t be it and had to do something to improve and change my life.
So in 1997 I took the plunge and joined the British Army, I served with the 1st Battalion the Royal Irish Regiment. I saw and heard many things in the military including combat tours of Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan I also served in Northern Ireland, Canada and Africa. I had a successful career and left as a senior Non Commissioned Officer. My Army years were great and a made friends for life.
Well that was 8 years ago, when I left the Army I moved to the Isle of Man which is where I currently live with my partner and 4 year old chocolate Labrador her name is Izzy. I worked as a sports trader for a large online company.
It was about 3 years ago I discovered Internet Marketing and making money online, I was intrigued at the thought of being able to make a living with my laptop as many people are. I spent hundreds and hundreds of pounds on courses and products that promise the world but never deliver anything apart from debt.
One day it just hit me that there is no need to keep buying the next shiny object, just focus on the one thing that I know works and stop be distracted by opening emails from other marketers promising overnight riches it just won’t happen. I knew the principles of internet marketing and what it takes to succeed. We live in an information age where people crave for information and the fact that they are willing to pay for it.
So simply create a digital product to cure the needs of information seekers. Once you have these customers you can market to them over and over via email. I’m sure you have heard the saying “The Money is in the List” this is true to a certain degree, what you want to achieve is a an email list of people who have purchased one or more products from you. So I have created my blog to share my experience and tips to truly succeed online. Over the coming weeks and months I will be posting and sharing various articles, videos and tips to help everyone live the laptop lifestyle.
