My Story

 Yes, We All Have A Story Even Baby Boomers!

No matter whether you think, you do or don’t there is something of value in you, you can share.


You may ask, I know I did…….

How could anyone be interested in what you do and even if you’re the greatest bragger in the world, or somewhere in between, you do have a story to share and value to add to the world…

And your blog is one of the best places for you to get your message out there.

Like Me…

Who am I? and  What’s my story?

What leads me to share with you where I am today and why working online is important for all to master.

For me, reaching the Baby Boomer & Empty Nester stage was a bit of an eye-opener… 

After years of hairdressing and business coaching, I knew I was too young to retire, too old or should I say wise to spend the rest of my days in the garden.

Now, I didn’t sit bolt upright in the middle of the night and say “That’s it, I’ve got it!” I’ve spent the last 30+ years running a profitable hair salon … Must I be a guru?

I know what I am doing,  I will start my own business online.

Baby Boomer

Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work that way, mind you I did finally crack the code for more profit in my business through multiple streams of income.

But it did take a few years of stress and overwhelm working this online stuff out.

After selling my salon I spent a number of years in the business coaching game. And, oh boy is that a game!

But more on that later.

What was interesting to see, so many in business still after all these years still had similar problems –

  • No time to live life,
  • There was never any money left at the end of the month
  • And of course staff, now that is another story.

This is the 21st Century… and time for a change in the way you think.

As a baby boomer, I needed to go through this experience for a few years, till I finally woke up to the fact success is ultimately up to me, like it is you, and who you become as a person.

It will not come from an outside source, for example, promoting a certain product, working longer hours.

Jim Rohn said it perfectly

Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development. Because success is something you attract by the person you become.

When you realize…

Where you are in your life right now is a result of who you were, not who you are but who you are! This is so powerful. And where you go depends entirely on who you chose to be.

My purpose with this blog is to share with you the highs and the lows and why this is an essential step in your journey online and in life.

By the way, from a marketing point of view, your blog is essential.

You’re more in control of your blog as compared to Social Media where you are just renting the space… they can shut you down or block your ads at any time whereas with your blog you do have control.

I am here to be of service to you, share any value I have learned and recommend the products that have helped me along the way … of which I personally use today.
