2 Weeks

My time here in Thailand has been a bit like one big networking event…. I can go to any small cafĂ© or restaurant and just start a conversation with like-minded people… It’s pretty incredible… But why is this? It’s all because of the digital nomad scene. Digital nomads are people who travel the world whilst […]

Lost Luggage and Cancelled Ticket

Thailand Travel

So I’m standing there in Bangkok airport… Waiting to get on the next plane to take me to an island in the south of Thailand called Koh Samui… They held me at the gate for over half an hour and were making a lot of radio calls… I was getting nervous because I only had […]

A Costly Mistake

Have you ever hit the wrong button and lost all your work? Forgot to save a project?? Not had a backup… Or simply tried something new and failed miserably? It happens to all of us right? Later in life failure can lead to massive self-doubt and even depression. We forget how much we failed when […]

Breakdown just before Christmas

Why is it that these things always happen just before Christmas? I just had lunch and loaded up the dishwasher… I clicked the on button and just heard a humming noise… You guessed it… The dishwasher has decided to pack up… I guess the thought of having to wash all those Christmas dishes was just […]

Alone and vulnerable in a sketchy part of town

Have you ever have that sick feeling in your stomach… You know, when something bad happens… Then you’ll know exactly how I felt when I got out of a cab and saw it driveaway… A couple years back I was attending a marketing conference in Phoenix USA. I had flown in to attend an event […]

They lied to me….

list building

It all seems so easy… The big promises… The easy money… And the 4 hour workweek? What happened? Back in 2008 when I first got into Internet marketing… These were the sort of promises that I heard on a daily basis… However nothing seemed to work… Until I started building an email list… But guess […]

My rant about electric cars…

As some of you may know I drive a Tesla… I got my Tesla model S brand-new over four years ago… And I’ve driven just over 62,000 miles… I’ve also completed many road trips over the years… Some over 3000 miles.. And what’s the most I’ve driven in one day? 582 miles! That was the […]

Very worrying posts

I was enjoying a lazy Saturday afternoon…. Watching an episode of Columba…. And casually browsing Facebook on my phone… When I suddenly started seeing lots of very worrying posts… They were all from Infusionsoft users complaining that they couldn’t send email? There was post after post…   What was going on?   For some reason […]

I lost all my data….

My hands were shaking… I had a sick feeling in my stomach… Oh my god… I lost all my data…. Well over 30 terabytes! And over a hundred hours of video footage… How did this happen? It was around 2007… Back when I was still running my video production company… We had a large storage […]

Fire in my office!

Last week I was sitting in my office and suddenly I started smelling a burning smell! It was the dreaded magic smoke smell from electronic equipment… I straightaway jumped out of my seat and started looking at all of my equipment…. I checked the extension leads… The back of my computers…. My network attached hard […]
