I still remember the day I was walking through David Jones with my friends and seeing the latest and greatest video games being playing on something called a personal computer. Should I admit what year that was and age myself? Ah what the heck, it’s only a number anyway, let’s just say it was in the 80’s. It was on that day I realized computers, and what was to come, would change the world dramatically and forever.
I was a shift-worker in the steelworks at that time, just completed my 4-year apprenticeship and really wasn’t enjoying what lay ahead. The idea of that computer kept going through my head. I knew there was a change in the air, a shift in how things were done, so I took the plunge and left the steelworks in pursuit of something better.
Fast forward to today and I have been working with computers in one way or another ever since, and I must say I’ve seen a lot of changes. I’ve been involved with Internet marketing for a number of years and did have some small successes along the way, but I still had trouble finding my niche and realizing my dream of not being geographically tied to an income. I love to travel and meet new people, everyone has a story to tell and I like to listen (it’s where I get some quotes), plus there are a lot of great photo opportunities (for another business I recently opened online).
Just over twelve months ago I had all but given up on my dream. There had been some significant personal events which have had a major impact on my life, suffice to say I’ve been through hell and back, but haven’t we all. I had lost my hope the Internet was going to provide what I needed, so I disconnected and lost myself in reruns of M.A.S.H., Seinfeld and other TV shows. I still couldn’t identify how I could express my Cre8ive side in a way that could also give me an income, (I’ve had the business name Cre8ive Global Enterprises for over 10 years and never really used it, but that’s another story).
These days things are back to what a lot call “normal”. I have a regular job now, and it gives me enough to live a comfortable life, but still not enough to travel as much as I would like.
May 2017, I see a light at the end of the tunnel.
After a conversation with a lifelong friend, and also a very successful meditation coach on YouTube, we both came across print on demand products. Finally, we had both found an outlet for our creative ideas that could appeal to people, like yourself, in such a way that you would like to own and use it.
So here I am, iPhone and laptop at the ready to bang out some designs and ideas that I hope you like enough to buy. I do all the designs myself and will try to add something new every week, so please be sure to add me to your favorites 🙂 Oh and if you have an idea and would like some help creating it please contact me, I’m sure together we can make it a reality.
Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me and why I am doing this. Let me know what you think so I can keep improving myself and my store over time. My goal is to make enough income to travel to as many places and meet as many people as I can with the remaining time I have on this planet. I prefer roughing it to luxury so I won’t need much. The remaining profits I will be using to help others in the world to have a better life. Success is to be shared and I plan to share a lot.
Bless you and thank you.
