It is always hard to know where to start when writing about oneself.

I left school at the age of 16 with a few gcse’s went on to work in an office for a few years.  In the meantime got married and divorce it is often true that teenage love just doesn’t last and in this case it certainly did not. Should have listened to my dad.

Changed jobs and worked in a factory making magazines, this was a maintained for the next nearly 20 years.

Met my gorgeous new husband Mike and moved to live with him bored with my job i started studying with the Open University and came out with a degree in psychology.

Along the way  gave birth to my equally gorgeous daughter Emily. This completely ruined my 40th as could not drink due to being pregnant at the time still she was well worth it. She was really a tiny miracle as the doctors had told me that my chances of conceiving naturally where n

As the factory work was shifts when she was due to start school  a career change was necessary and returned to the office work in which i am still in.

My first experiences with the internet where building an online presence with an eBay store and currently a power seller check out my store at Although it ticks over it is not at the stage to provide me an income to leave my job.

I have purchased many an eBook over the years several of John Thornhill’s but never though about the process of writing developing on myself.

After watching the recent videos that John put together for the Partnership for Success my husband who was listening with me said come on you can do so after some thought and penny counting decided that yes it was worth a shot.

My skills are growing by everyone of Johns video’s with the hope on soon i will develop my own product and be able to eventually leave my full time work.

    Hello Elaine,
    Life moves in funny ways, doesn’t it? Full of challenges and problems, rapid successes and massive setbacks. The important thing, I’ve found over the years, is the value of persistence.
    I’m sure if you persist and follow John’s guidance, you’ll succeed in developing a worthwhile online business. I look forward to seeing you succeed.
    Good luck.
    John Williamson

    Hi Elaine,

    Have stumbled across your site while surfing at Yes, I’m a surfer who stops and reads what he sees and if I like what I see and read, will pause and leave the author a word of support where I can!

    The site you have is all great and ‘About Me’ just nigh on perfect … good luck with your venture!

    Keep on Keeping On!

    I think the biggest key to a successful online store is quality traffic, delivered using Emails. Emails can do two things for a successful online store: 1. decision making and 2. digestion of online store.
