If you are anything like me, whether it is affiliate, email, Internet or network marketing, you love marketing and building businesses that enable you to work from home making money. I will explain how I have combined all of this together but first of all let me tell you about the reason why I started my home based businesses along with telling you a little bit more about myself.
Mark Ford – Why Did I Start Home Based Businesses?
I am involved with two home based businesses, Pooleford Property Services and Nice Money Publications. The property business is managed mainly by my business partner, Elizabeth Poole, along with our property manager, Sharon Costello. The business is involved in property development, property investment, property management and property options.
We have a number of business partners who have worked with us in the property business and we are currently managing a property portfolio of 21 properties that we own or have options over. We also manage another 10 properties for other landlords.
The Nice Money Publications business is managed and run by myself daily with work being outsourced through various outsourcing channels as appropriate. This business deals with sharing information on business and income opportunities working from home, information publishing, marketing and mentoring through the Six Figure Mentors/DEA.
I have called the business ‘Nice Money Publications’ because it is all about publishing information on the home based businesses that you may be looking for and which help you and me make ‘nice’ money working from home. If you visit this business opportunity link you will be able to view the latest information on the businesses that I am operating through my trading name, Nice Money Publications.
The reason why I started these businesses was because I wanted to work from home, have control over my future, spend more time with my family and friends, be charitable and enjoy the freedom that a home based business gives you.
I was also fed up with my 9 to 5 job (see more on this further down the page) and I therefore set about creating this website (and many others) because I want to meet and network with other entrepreneurs in the same situation as you and help and inspire them to discover a better alternative just like I did.
Mark Ford – Who Am I?
My Journey Into Work From Home Businesses …
I am just a normal person like you whose parents worked in factories and social clubs to provide their children with a loving comfortable childhood. From an early age I saw how hard my parents were working and the hours they were putting in just to keep the roof over our heads and I suppose to a certain extent this has rubbed of on me because I will work for as long as it takes to get a job done.
I always thought though that there must be a better way but with the conditioning drummed into me from an early age by my parents and society … go to school … get good qualifications … and get a well paid job for a secure future … (nothing wrong with that if that’s the way you want to go …) I followed the norm, studied hard and ended up with a bag full of qualifications in many subjects that I do not use today.
I have always had this ambitious entrepreneurial spirit running through me and I like to set myself challenges, achieve them and move on. I could not see the sense of studying subjects that I wouldn’t use in life or in a career and as I was always told that this was the norm I just followed the system we are all put through and studied hard.
It all led to me obtaining an administrative job in a legal office as a sixteen year old and progressing through the ranks, continuing with my studies whilst holding down a job, and eventually at the age of 34 passing the examinations to qualify as a solicitor.
It was a bit of a painful journey because I got divorced along the way, but I persisted and travelled to the Law Society Halls, London with my family for the presentations in 1994.
So what did I really achieve? Well yes, absolutely brilliant to qualify as a lawyer but it still led to following the trend of working to get a well paid job, falling into the routine of life to get up, get ready for work, have breakfast, travel to the office sitting in the rush hour traffic, work 9 to 5, sit in the rush hour traffic on the way home, enjoy your evening and do it all again the following day five to six days a week.
I ‘followed the trend’ and worked as a solicitor within the legal profession for just over 29 years. As well as performing my duties to a very high standard in a number of complex legal situations, I was responsible for the management of many administrative projects which included the successful improvement of business performance in a number of key areas. One of my major successes was to set up an asset recovery panel. This involved me in the training of a panel of magistrates on the appropriate law and systems that I developed along with working with a number of legal authorites in recovering assets from those involved in criminal activity.
However, the area of the law and the work that I enjoyed the most was when I was appointed as the legal advisor to a licensing committee. I worked with local authorites and licensing committee members in the administration of the law relating to the licensing of public houses, night clubs, restaurants, betting offices, hotels and any establishment where a liquor licence was required.
I was also a member of a team of legal advisors involved in the administration and provision of legal advice in family proceedings. Whilst I enjoyed this work my passion was licensing law. I enjoyed the responsibilities that this ‘job’ required me to discharge for many years until the government decided that a change in the law was inevitable and that the local authority would now be making the decisions.
Yes, with all this I had a great career and a good income that I had worked very hard for. I was very grateful for that but something still felt missing … I was stuck with the safe comfortable life that many would like where I could just sit back if I wanted to, do the work and pick up the wages at the end of the month but that was not quite enough for me because it was not just about the money, the job had to continue to challenge me and motivate me to get up in the morning.
For many years like I say, I had this entrepreneurial spirit burning inside me, my passion for the job was evaporating and I always thought that there had to be another and more exciting way to earn a living.
It was when I eventually got totally disillusioned and fed up with the constant changes to my job to the point that what I had studied at law school was a waste of time because it bore no relation to what I was now doing at work. New laws were being introduced faster than an express train and the job was becoming more administrative in nature by the day to the point that I felt that my legal skills were being under used and I was more of a clerical officer than a lawyer.
I speak more of this later, and how it is a central reason for me to run my home based businesses, but I also lost my father to cancer in 2006, and this led to me having time of work and time to focus on my future.
As I knew that I would really enjoy being my own boss where I would not be restricted by a 9 to 5 lifestyle and answerable to someone else, I decided that operating a home based business and learning all I could about marketing was the way to go.
I eventually made a massive decision to change my life, give up my income, take a different road, and at 46 years of age start from scratch working from home building businesses that would give me;
- No geographical ties
- Global market potential
- Laptop lifestyle
- No employed staff but outsource the work
- Low overheads
- High profit margins
- Not to be tied to telephones and the office all day
- Time freedom
- Financial freedom
- Work towards a position where I work, if I have to, a maximum of 4 hours a day just managing the networks I have set up
- Work with like minded people helping others succeed as much as I possibly can
Having taken the decision to walk away from working as a solicitor for 29 years and give up my secure job, I handed in my notice and started to plan what I would do next.
When the day came to leave my job it was quite an emotional day and after all the years working with some fantastic people it was a very difficult thing to do. However, I knew that my future lay outside of the law and that once I had learnt about the home based business industry myself I could help and empower other people to do the same.
My colleagues gave me a brilliant last day at the office and I have set out below a few pictures of what I found on my desk when I arrived at work that day back in Sept. 2006.
I looked for new challenges outside of the law and developed a passion for affiliate, internet marketing, network marketing, information publishing, property development and property investment working from home on a number of successful ventures.
I started off by setting up the property business and building the portfolio. It was a bit of a crazy time at the start because, along with Liz (who I have mentioned above), we bought fourteen properties in the first year and then consolidated the position afterwards until we eventually acquired another seven buy to let properties.
Having bought 21 properties of our own, we then started to generate leads from motivated sellers to offer out to UK property investors, some of whom we ended up working for by providing a full property find, research, transaction and management service. In the end we took on 10 properties as agents to other landlords, and we still manage these properties to this day.
Mark Ford’s Venture Into The World Of Making Money Online & Mentors
Having got the property business up and running I started to search the Internet for other home based businesses that would give me a residual income but I soon realised that there is a ton of information out there and many hundreds, if not thousands, of business opportunities online. I started to ask myself, how would I know which one to choose and how can I be sure that they are legitimate make money online opportunities?
At first with the wealth of information out there, like many, I found it difficult to see the wood through the trees and I spent a lot of money on training courses and eBooks to try and get the answers.
Many hours, days, weeks, months and years have been spent researching various business opportunities, marketing systems and product niches until I decided that if I was to have a really successful home business I would need to learn marketing and embrace the internet where I work with a team of like minded people who are willing to help me.
How was I going to do all this? Well, I thought my best course of action was to find business mentors whose experience would help me and from whom I could learn as quickly as possible.
I have always found that when I focus on things in a positive way the answer comes through and for me that was a realization that I needed a mentor. If I aligned myself with the right mentors I would be able to build the type of business that I wanted to be involved with and promote legitimate business opportunities.
Having decided that I needed a mentor I was fortunate enough, back in 2008, to receive a business publication through the post from work from home business entrepreneur, Andrew Reynolds.
This caused me to find out all I could about Andrew Reynolds. What I discovered and liked best was how ethical he was in the way he ran his businesses and how he seemed to want to go out of his way to help people succeed in the same way that he has, as a self made multi-millionaire. Excellent Andrew, well done!
Andrew Reynolds has been very inspirational to me and has been one of my mentors on my journey to setting up and running home based businesses.
I have attended Andrew Reynolds bootcamps and bought a number of his products which have been a tremendous help to me in learning about this home based business opportunity industry. It opened my eyes up to a completely different way of working and earning money.
I also realised that I could do this type of business, information publishing working from home, alongside my existing property business, although these days the business workload has grown to such an extent that we have had to change the way we manage the two businesses.
I believe in hard work, sticking to the task in hand, staying focused on my goals, dedication, leadership and sharing as much information as I can to help others succeed.
Through sheer perseverance, buying many products, and attending bootcamps, seminars and workshops I learnt a lot about Digital marketing myself. However, I was looking to implement what I had learnt, and not spend anymore time going on courses so I searched for and found an online training product which meant that I could learn in my own time.
I also searched for an online community of internet marketers who I could interact with so that I did not feel isolated working from home.
The solution I found was The Six Figure Mentors. I have now become an elite member of this top internet marketing training program and community and I am committed to helping my own team members succeed with this great business. For the support package and bonuses that I provide, which is in addition to what you get from the Six Figure Mentors, > visit this link.

The Six Figure Mentors And The Digital Experts Academy
Having looked for business mentors I could work with and learn from, namely Andrew Reynolds and Stuart Ross, this has now been taken a step further because Stuart Ross has partnered up with Jay Kubassek and they have both co-founded the Digital Experts Academy, launched on the 19th January 2013.
You can read more about Jay Kubassek at this Jay Kubassek website link.
The decision that Jay and Stuart made through 2012 to become business partners has also had the knock on effect of making Jay Kubassek one of my business mentors.
I now have access to regular business and personal development training from Jay Kubassek and if you explore the right navigation bar, to the right and above, you will be able to listen to some of Jay’s wake up calls on Blog Talk Radio.

A Little Bit More About Myself … Mark Ford – Family Background
My name is Mark Ford and I originate from Bournville, Birmingham, UK but I now live in Staffordshire. I have one of the best friends you could ever wish for, Carol Fountain (pictured above) and an adult son, Daniel, who has ‘left the nest’ and he now lives in Birmingham with his girlfriend.
My parents separated some time back and my mother now lives with my step father quite close to me in Staffordshire.
Unfortunately, I lost my father to lung cancer in 2006 and, along with my own inner desire to build a successful home based business, this has been one of the drivers that helped me decide to leave my previous profession as a licensing lawyer and work for myself.
I also have one brother living with his partner in Staffordshire and one sister living with her husband in Evesham, Worcestershire.
My extended family are spread all across the UK and I have lots of aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins too numerous to mention.
By profession I am a qualified lawyer and it was this profession that brought me to Staffordshire back in 2000 when I was offered a full time post as a Senior Legal Advisor serving a Licensing Committee.
I have also worked as a Disc Jockey for 10 years, built a property portfolio, and I am now a converted internet entrepreneur, marketer and mentor.
Mark Ford – Where Am I From?
My Family And My Younger Years
I was brought up in Bournville, Birmingham, UK and lived for many years near the Cadbury’s chocolate factory. My mother (picture to the right) worked at the Cadbury’s factory and how good was it as a youngster to have a never ending supply of chocolate from the Cadbury’s chocolate shop?
I have posted below two Cadbury World videos which will give you a run through of the Cadbury World experience. You can also explore below views of Bournville Lane, Stirchley, where I lived with my parents for around sixteen years.

Mark Ford – Views of Bournville Lane, Stirchley where I Lived with my Parents.
Mark Ford’s Father My father served on H.M.S. Ajax (picture below) with the Royal Navy during World War II and on leaving the Royal Navy he worked for many years at the Longbridge Car Factory, Birmingham, UK.
My father eventually left the Longbridge Plant, perhaps because he became tired of the permanent night shifts, and became an insurance salesman. He always enjoyed a drink and the social side of life and wanted to fulfil a passion of running a social club. This led him to leave his sales career behind and become the steward of a number of ex service mens clubs on a relief and full time basis.
He was a very good manager and had many successful years in business running the social clubs. I remember how as a teenager I used to enjoy learning from him and helping him out in managing and running the various businesses.
We shared our love of cricket and we had a lot of lengthy debates about the UK legal system, which he felt strongly about, but unfortunately, after many happy years together, in April 2006 I lost my father to lung cancer. At this time I was still pursuing my legal career but for some time I had been thinking about setting up businesses that would give me an alternative lifestyle.
The legal profession was something that was not challenging me anymore and the loss of my father perhaps helped push me forward to make the decision to leave my job.
After all the events surrounding the loss of my father I took a two month leave of absence from work and this enabled me to re-focus and look at what I wanted to do with my future.
This led me to leave my legal job in September 2006 and open a property business, Pooleford Property, and having built up a property portfolio, to then move onto what I really wanted to do by setting up my home based business, Nice Money Publications.
Favourite Causes & Charities
A part of my reasoning for working from home and running property investment and internet marketing businesses is that I would like to be charitable and make donations to a lung cancer charity. It’s my way of giving back to the organizations who made my father’s passing so much easier for me and my family.
Mark Ford – Some Family Pictures!
My brother, Nigel Ford (picture to the right) loves to chill out playing his guitar with his family and friends. Before coming back to the UK Nigel Ford spent many years living abroad running his graphic design business in Gran Canaria. This was just great because I used to love to travel (often on a whim) to see him four or five times a year.

My mother some years ago married my step father (picture to the right) and for five years they also lived in Gran Canaria with my brother. Health reasons meant that they had to move back to the UK and they now live in the country in Staffordshire, UK.
My son, (pictured left, lives with his girlfriend in Birmingham, UK and he is learning his trade as a builder.

Mark Ford – Education
Growing up in Bournville was idyllic. Bournville is, in my view, a very beautiful part of Birmingham and a place where I enjoyed living and going to school every day.
A. Bournville Junior & Infant School
The school I attended, the Bournville Junior & Infant School (see the picture to the left) is located on the Linden Road, Bournville in an area that is very picturesque.
Wikipedia, the free encylopedia, describes Bournville as being best known for its connections with the Cadbury family. See below.
Bournville is a model village on the south side of Birmingham, England, best known for its connections with the Cadbury family and chocolate – including a dark chocolate bar branded “Bournville”.
It is also a ward within the council constituency of Selly Oak and home to the Bournville Centre for Visual Arts. Research by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has claimed that it is “one of the nicest places to live in Britain”. Read More
B. George Dixon Grammar School
Having passed my 11+ examinations I went to George Dixon Grammar School and, having taken nine ‘O’ level examinations, I left school in 1977 to pursue a legal career.
Whilst my parents were keen to see me go down the University route I figured that I would get myself into work and study whilst pursuing a career. That way I would learn what I needed to know to become a professional lawyer, which I achieved in 1994 having taken twelve examinations in a week!
I don’t know whether you can relate to this but I have always found that it is better for me to commit to learning what I need to know to carry out a particular task rather than learn a load of stuff that I do not use. This has certainly been the way I have gone about learning about working from home business opportunities and marketing strategies.
I have spent a lot of money on products and workshops and I have spent endless hours educating myself so that I can become a professional in this industry. The point is that you don’t necessarily need to have a whole string of degrees and qualifications. A lot of people can become successful business people by simply taking action and learning more about what they enjoy doing. That certainly has been the case for me and I now enjoy helping others as much as I can by passing on the knowledge I have gained.
C. George Dixon Grammar School & Cricket
Of all the things I got up to at school I enjoyed sport the most, in particular cricket.
It was whilst I was at the George Dixon Grammar school that my enjoyment of the game of cricket developed. I was the opening batsmen for the school first team and on leaving school I also played for the Bournville Cricket Club.
My legal studies meant that I had to leave cricket to the one side but I picked it up again briefly as a player in 2004 and most recently I have looked into the possibility of being a cricket umpire.
I also enjoy travelling the world to watch the England International Cricket team.
D. Matthew Boulton Technical College and Law School
Having in my job learnt about a wide variety of legal subjects I was granted leave of absence to qualify as a solicitor.
My journey started by studying for an ‘A’ level in law at the Matthew Boulton Technical College in Birmingham, a Diploma in Law and the Common Professional examinations at a number of polytechnics throughout the UK, and finally I passed the Law Society Final Examinations to become a Solicitor in 1994.
During my years of study I became married in 1985 and my son, Daniel was born in 1988. Unfortunately the studies proved to be a strain on the marriage and led to a divorce in 1993. Times were hard and if you are in this position I can have empathy with you. Working, studying and going through a divorce was not easy and it was a very low point in my life which I have overcome. You can too!
What I found helped me through all this was to just keep going and not give in which is something that has stayed with me until this day. Focus on your goals and work through it all. I was determined to qualify as a lawyer and equally as determined later on to run a property and Internet business. Life gets in the way but don’t quit! Winners Never Quit!
Mark Ford – My Business Life And Previous Jobs After School
I left school in 1977 and I got myself a job in the legal profession. Whilst holding down this full time job I eventually qualified as a solicitor which enabled me to gain promotion.
The area of law that I enjoyed the most was the licensing of public houses, clubs, night clubs, restaurants and betting offices. I worked as a licensing lawyer for many years serving licensing committees and local authorities.
However, the government decided that they would change the law and move the responsibility for licensing to a different authority. I did not want to really work in any other area of law and the job was also becoming more administrative based rather than using the extensive legal skills that I had developed.
I could see that the opportunities within the legal service where being stripped away and that, whilst I could just stay in the job and earn a reasonable income, if I stayed on I would not be able to fulfil my desire to help out a lung cancer charity, have as much time as I want to enjoy life or spend time with family and friends. Things had to change! I was 46 at the time and time was pushing on.. I was fast running out of time!
When I saw that I could not develop my legal career any further and the enjoyment had been taken out of the job, there came a time when I decided to look at alternative ways to work outside of a 9 to 5 environment and be my own boss.
Some years ago, back in 2008, a ‘Self Made Millionaire’ magazine from work from home business entrepreneur Andrew Reynolds landed on my door mat. This was at a time when I was thinking about looking for alternatives to my legal career. I read through the magazine with great interest and I was hooked. That was the moment that I decided this was something that I wished to explore further and I ended up going down to Brighton in the UK, to attend Andrew Reynolds Entrepreneurs Bootcamp.
This was a massive eye opener into the world of running a home based business and my mind was buzzing after this two day event as to the endless possibilities. I came away with some health and fitness DVD’s with a licence to sell these under worldwide distribution rights. To this day I still make money selling these products and I receive a monthly payment into my bank.
Rather than just accept that this is the way it is and stay in a job that I was not enjoying anymore I decided to leave, give up my salary, and eventually set up my businesses Nice Money Publications and Pooleford Property.
Is this you? Are you fed up with what you are doing?
You may wish to ask yourself about whether you want to look at alternatives. I can help you with this and if you take action you can change and improve your lifestyle. You have to though, like me, take that first step. To look at some of the options that may suit you visit my business opportunities page. My contact details are shown on this page.
Mark Ford – The Mobile Disc Jockey!
Having spent many years studying law I lost touch with what was going on in the world of music. Like many people I enjoy relaxing to music but in social times my friends and family were talking about music and artists who I hadn’t heard of.
I decided to do somethng about it and get up to speed with what was going on and learn about music.
I set up with my brother and a friend of mine a very successful mobile discotheque that we called ‘Space Roadshow’. The three of us were on holiday together in Gran Canaria and we discussed the venture in a club called ‘Space’ which led us to use this name for our disco.
We came back from the holiday, bought two complete mobile disco set ups, did a bit of advertising and away we went.
We also became involved in event management, catering, and booked up various bands and other forms of entertainment for the various parties that we were involved with.
We ran this business together (while I also continued with my day job) for ten years and pulled in around $1,000/£630 a week. We always said that when we had done 1000 parties we would look back on the times we had enjoyed and wrap it all up.
By 2006 we had achieved our goal and it is a part of my life that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I met and made friends with many people, became a resident DJ for a number of venues and DJ’d both in the UK and abroad.
Clubs, Pubs, Village Halls, Social Clubs. Weddings, Birthdays, set up and DJ’d Ozzy Osbourne’s (Black Sabbath) 50th Birthday Party at the NEC Birmingham, Christmas and New Year parties for Aston Villa Football Club, Christenings, Wakes even, think of a reason for a party and music and I have probably done it!
Now when it comes to thinking about work from home business opportunities quite often we think of running an online business. There are many offline businesses that can be run from home and if music is your passion why not consider this as an option and have some fun along the way?
Mark Ford – Favourite Music
My clubbing days were through the 70’s and 80’s when the new romantic and disco style of music was around. As an ex DJ I have grown to like a wide range of music from the 60’s through to the present day.
A particular track that I love is Heather Small, Proud … very motivational!
Mark Ford – Hobbies & Interests
On the sporting front I like to travel watching international cricket in as many countries as I possibly can and I enjoy travel in general. Sydney, Australia in 2006/2007 was just brilliant and I would love to go again sometime.
Food, well not very fussy and a favourite past time! I enjoy all types of food from all countries except hot spicy stuff!
I like to take it easy, relax walking through the countryside, watch a good film, take trips to the theatre and just kick back socialising when I can.
I also like my cars and in the past I have owned a number of cars including a Jaguar XJS. My favourite cars now are BMW’s and below is a picture of one of the BMW’s I used to own, a BMW 3 Series Convertible …
Mark Ford – Current Industries: Property Investment, Property Development, Property Management and Property Options.
Business Opportunities that help people make money working from home, information publishing, marketing and mentoring.
After 29 years in the legal profession I left my ‘job’ in 2006 to focus on building a property portfolio which I still own today. Having achieved my goal to develop and invest in property I opened my work from home business, Nice Money Publications in 2008.
Mark Ford – What I Love Best About My Businesses
In a sentence, the freedom to work when I want and do what I want on my own terms. No more asking a boss for a holiday, the freedom to take a holiday when I wish!
Whilst I still like to be up early, I also have the freedom to lie in if I want to and I no longer wake up to an alarm clock!
My work from home businesses enable me to fulfil my passion to help people meet their own personal and business goals by sharing information about business opportunities working from home, various forms of marketing and mentoring people towards a six figure income with the Six Figure Mentors/DEA, leveraging the internet to run a successful online business.
Mark Ford – What I Don’t Like About My Businesses
I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoy all parts of my home based businesses. The businesses fulfil my creative ways and I like to take action on what I learn putting together plans and systems to make it all work.
Now using the phrase ‘home based businesses’ doesn’t necessarily mean that this is a ‘work at home’ business because the ‘home base’ can be anywhere in the world with my laptop where there is an internet connection. An Internet laptop lifestyle is a great way of life and one I look forward to enjoying more and more as each year passes.
Mark Ford – Values In Life

The Six Figure Mentors has the most advanced Internet marketing training facility online and they cater for anyone looking to start an Internet business, improve their existing business, or stop the endless loop of failing to succeed in earning profits online.
For those who join us in this business the knowledge and education that is available to you from our team of experts in effective online marketing is second to none.
If you can master the art of marketing then it doesn’t really matter what program you have. Programs will come and go but the understanding of how to effectively market online will last forever.
I personally aim to help every single person who joins my business and wants to “change their life” by finding out what their pathway is, what are their dreams and aspirations and to set them on a journey to achieve their success.
The ultimate aim is to work smarter not harder and through, my involvement with this home based business industry I now receive top class mentoring, support, training and self development and came to realise that with the right business opportunity, creating a more passive and ever increasing income could be a reality and not just something spinning around in my head never coming to fruition.
I like to help people as much as I can and always enjoy it when I see people succeed and change their lifestyle for the better. My ultimate aim is to achieve the financial freedom that everyone craves for and to help as many other people along that path as I can.
So, What’s the Secret?
The movie “The Secret” holds many of the pieces to the puzzle many of us are after. After watching this film if you implement the techniques and suggestions you should start to experience incredible benefits from your actions and thoughts.
This is truly an amazing movie and I highly recommend it to EVERYONE!

Over the years I have attended numerous marketing workshops and invested heavily in my business and education. I am both self taught from home study courses and I have also learnt a lot from other business mentors. All the training courses I have been on have been both enjoyable and enlightening.
I am looking to the SFM/DEA to help educate me further about online marketing and business, so that I can pass on my improved knowledge to others who will benefit from this experience.
I hope that through my journey I can help many others make money online, succeed with a home based business and achieve their ultimate success by sharing what I have learnt along the way.

By using effective marketing systems it means that I only have to work with people who have an interest in the products or business opportunities that I am involved with. This means that I don’t have to chase after people or hound my friends and family or even “cold call” lists of leads for hours on end.
Setting up these online systems means that by the time you contact me you already know something about me and understand that I am a normal person, just like you, with a passion to help you and your business grow and succeed.
