I have always worked for myself so I guess you can say I’m an entrepreneur. I started breeding pigs and chickens when still at school and later ran a painting and decorating business while training to be farrier. Yes, I shod horses for a living, in my native UK, in Canada, the States and later, here in Spain.
Horses have always been my first love but I always had other business interests. I went to university at the ripe old age of 40 studying commercial real estate!
I started online back in 1996 and had a break while I moved to Spain. I live in a mountainous area and there was no internet connection for years but once I got connected I started again. Good grief! How things had changed in a few short years. So that is where my real online journey began.
I didn’t find it easy to start with but with sheer determination I made it happen. That is one thing you will need to have if you want to succeed in this crazy internet marketing world too. Guts and determination.
It’s a bit like learning to ride a horse. When it throws you off you just have to get back in the saddle and try again. Never give up, this is one of the best business to be in. You meet wonderful people from around the globe and you choose your own hours. As I used to say about shoeing horses… “If you enjoy what you’re doing… it beats working for a living”.
