Self description

Male , 49

I run an internet development company in Cambridge and another business interest brewing in women's clothing and fashion.

Traveled quite a bit having lived abroad for a number of years absorbing culture and appreciating different ways that people lead fulfilling lives elsewhere.

Was and is a big step to jump into running a business but once you do it, very hard to go back. Better just get ahead, learn as much as you can, apply it and perhaps most importantly get others around you to keep you going and the vision alive.

Life experiences

Internet Business

Help with getting started for running business online.
Easier than you think from choosing and purchasing names, getting a web presence with a hosting company to the real end of it: making a profit and growing a credible business.

All areas covered from optimisation to setting up a commerce site quickly and effectively. Getting traffic to your site and converting this to sales opportunities.

Covers using Google AdWords and AdSense to generate income from your site or in fact other sites through affiliate marketing.

Amazon provide an easy way to set up a shopfront whereby you can make money on a commission basis and I can help here by guiding you through the set up and layout process of these types of shops.
Ebay is a potential goldmine for the right products and right approach and need not be daunting if you are prepared to stick at it. If you do, there is an additional or even main income to be made here.

All areas of the Internet covered for those willing to learn!

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I am fortunate to have had others around me at critical moments of life. Not just business but other areas and life stages that have helped me see the bigger picture or inspired me to dream and believe bigger than I thought possible at that moment. Mentoring provides a means of inspiring and encouraging when perhaps the weight or size of a problem seems insurmountable. Whatever it is, you can be sure, someone has been there before and there is ALWAYS another way to do something. I want to give what I can, however small, to help others who may be in similar situations as I was and just need someone cheering them on and helping them seeing life differently. Sometimes, that's all it takes to go from one level to the next.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
