The Decisions That Matter
Becoming my own boss & following my passions

Following a natural career path in financial services being highly successful at developing new business with insurance companies & investment companies I decided the only way to truly develop myself was to create my own wealth management practice

I started this in 1999 & sold it in 2009 allowing me to focus on my newly found interest in social networking & connecting people

I immediately saw the potential to help people & help our amazing planet

Since the end of 2009 I have helped 100s of people individually & 1000s of people online in groups, discussions & webinars to understand & recognise the power of the internet, not to fear but embrace the incredible opportunity we all have with the world wide web

There is only one constant in life - it's change! The pace & depth of change seems to be increasing - driven by connectivity, education, empowerment, desire for a better world & technology

Sharing Is Our Greatest Pleasure©
