Surfing, ecology, reading, Scrabble, gardening, my four legged friends.
Getting a burnt back in the garden whilst playing with plants! Surfing on any day I can. If I ever build a business that buys me a sea-front home, I'll risk losing it, 'cause I'll be in the sea so much!
so many.... but Mae West and Groucho Marx always make me smile

Hello fellow entrepreneur.
I am a newbie online entrepreneur, working from home in the UK in beautiful South Wales.
For many years I have facilitated or been actively involved in local community and economic development projects and direct support and coaching work in a variety of settings. I had the privilege of working alongside some fantastic people in some of the most deprived areas. It never feels like work when you are with a team who are really motivated and with whom you share common goals and values; empowerment work is THE most satisfying work in my mind.
I loved making a real difference in other people’s lives, albeit indirect and sometimes small scale.
Looking back, however, I think I always knew that I was not suited to working for organisations who were hampered by petty office politics or bureaucracy. The corporate world chips away at your spirit as you are forced to make compromises difficult to justify to those you are supposed to be serving.
Over-night virtually, my own values changed when involved in an accident, which left me thinking that the only way I could consider working full-time again would be on my own terms and schedule. Fortunately, I am finding being self-employed suits me perfectly now.
Strange as it might seem, it had never really occurred to me that I might be able to serve others, whilst earning money for myself for doing so! So now I am still working for others, but in a whole new way and perhaps in a more significant way than I ever managed before; time will tell. Changing lives continues be my life's mission here! The fantastic thing is my professional community have the same aim!
I am still new to internet marketing and am on a steep learning curve, but have learnt more exciting stuff here than I have learnt in years in the corporate worlds in which I moved before. I am loving every day of independence - even if the money is not rolling in yet! I know it will come... : )
I look forward to getting to know more of you independent marketers out there. It's a bit like coming home out here in the internet world!
