Come with me as I document my journeys, & work through the challenges of starting an online business from scratch. Starting out at the cool age of 52 has some interesting implications, mainly technology. However my broader business background is a great help. I have interests that are starting to take a more important role in my life decisions and where in the end some ideas and opportunities will lead. I like 5 star. You can too.
My goal is to help you, if you want to come with me on this journey.

Stinking Thinking? Fair Question ? Or are you a little indignant, and perhaps a little offended? Never mind. The intention is not to upset you. But, maybe this is worth a thought. What is it that you are thinking about when you wake up in the morning ? What is it you think about as you walk to the train station? Sitting at your desk? Making your lunch? Taking a shower? Sitting ? Waiting? Driving? Plus the many other things you could be doing each and every day.
The idea is that maybe many of us have been conditioned to think in a certain ways. This could be our education, our at home upbringing, and perhaps all helped by the twists and turns our lives have taken the people we associate with and the day to day influences. It really is a type of Conditioning. It begs the question if many of us feel w...
Hmmm.... That Headline may get me some bad press! Before you fly off the handle ...
I love Elephants and would never venture to hurt one in any way...nor encourage such. And no.. I will never ride one either... because I always feel saddened by the type of saddles used to sit on their back, they look cruel and painful and behind the scenes the Elephant has usually been treated badly and beaten with weapons to make it submit. Elephants are a beautiful and magnificient animal. So before condemning me, click on the photo below and see where it takes you, because if I got you to do that, I have opened the article to readers. Thank You...
Now for my actual real reason of the insidious analogy of the headline. It is to make a point about how we get started on something we think, or see, or feel, is...
As time goes by I realise it is not about just building a business. Your head and your heart have to be in the right place. So here goes, I have found in the past during the many times I have tried to build something and failed. Like my Nuskin business or any of the other many things... I am sure if you read anything about me you will know and see a list of the things I have done. Once it was an embarrassment. Today.... ah well every step of the way I was trying and each time I fell over I would get back up... dust myself off, and try again or try something else. Thing is... it taught me many things. Have to admit that for sure. Without these many life lessons, I would not be here today talking to you... and hopefully helping you past or over some of the Obstacles along the way.
Found an interesting and enlightning Post that CBS News has documented. It is for USA based people, however it is also relevant as something to think about for many other countries in the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and UK
Amazing what they have uncovered and the statistics they show. In case you have not figured this yet I am Australian, and I know we have pretty much the same type of situation. We love the idea of retiring and doing the Travelling, and what we call Doing The Loop which is Purchasing a Caravan and usually a 4 wheel drive and we take 12 months or more in many cases to Travel around Australia. The people who do this are called Grey Nomads. There is always much debate in these age circl...
You work better in the morning.....This is a fact....however I know some have a different view of this. You do know though, that if you want to earn some good money on the side you are more likely to be successful if you do some work on it in the morning. You could always start out by doing just 17 minutes to get you started then increase the time each week until you are doing an hour, or more if you can. This way when the distractions of your day... or the distractions from your normal daily routine or job have you doing other things... no problem The income that is going to give you what you want for your future, has already been taken care of. When someone asks you to go for that after work golf game or drink... YES!! you are guilt free.

How hard is it? Building a business from scratch on the internet. Easy ?? hahaha... I thought I had it made, after all, how difficult could it be. Learning all new terminology, how to get clicks, driving traffic The list was endless. See I thought I had covered everything on my list I was getting Amazon to dispatch the product. I was doing doing doing.... it was hard slog I had to learn a new loading system, build a website, I was travelling at the time, so a few days off here and there, then you have to start again. There was no continuity in what I was doing, and there were no rule books for how to make a good income. What I did have though was many people sending me the next coolest product to buy. Of course I thought it was the next great thing. I did find though that most of the...
When I first thought about choosing a new business, I had no idea where it would lead. My passion has always been renovating, housing design.....and my jobs have always been centered around the building industry, in some way, shape, or form. My varied resume is on Linkedin if you want to check it out. Soooo.. because that is my passion, I thought I really wanted to do something like that. However it would not fit into all the forms of my Business critera that I had built for myself.
Here is my criteria list:
1. No shop or office I have to go to every day.
2. No employees
3. It has to make me enough money to support me and my lifestyle
4. I want to travel lots more.. so it has to support this too.
5. I support children's foundations it has to allow me to grow that interest
