There was a time when I would get lots of comments about being the “youngest” this and that. — Now? Not so much…
But the awesome part is that I’ve fitted a lot of living into my life – good and bad, happy and sad, successful and crappy.
… That’s life, right?
My name is Johno Ardley. Nice to meet you.
Once upon a time, I was a baby-boy. But because it’s become un-pc to be gender specific, I should just stick with “child”. Which, btw, was a wonderful childhood in the middle-class ‘burbs of Melbourne Australia.
I chose my parents pretty well. They were loving, caring, and above-all, encouraging – as was my big sister and on occasions, my brother. I always felt sorry for many of my friends who weren’t as fortunate.
At the age of nine, I started learning to play the guitar. On returning home, Mum asked me if I enjoyed it? I told her that I want to teach the guitar when I grow up.
By the time I was 16, my guitar school became a registered business. Thanks to some tv exposure as a singer-guitarist, student numbers grew to 350 a week over the next few years.
Call me crazy (many do), but it all grew a bit stale by the time I was into my thirties. I had been there, done that, and bought the tee-shirt.
Now it was time to move on; although I did keep playing in bands and theatre-restaurants, blah blah.
Don’t get me wrong – I had a ball. But I knew there was something else for me ‘over the rainbow’.
… Do you ever get that feeling?
Somehow, I found time to give birth to three amazing kids – a Kiwi and two Aus-trucken-falians – and not a stretch mark in sight!
💖They’re my biggest successes💖
I had many jobs while still gigging in my spare-time in both Australia and New Zealand. These were mainly sales-related jobs (insurance, security, cars etc).
I worked at, and owned a number of small publishing businesses over the years. Advertising (or marketing) fascinated me so I was happy to pitch in with my two-cents worth.
Then came … ‘The INTERWEB’ !!
As publishing became tougher, “internet marketing” became the new kid on the block. It was time for a change of direction…
Internet Marketing was a whole new and exciting ball-game with unlimited possibilities. Automation tools-of-the-trade are endless – making it simpler and cheaper to get started.
You can work at home if you want to, or anywhere in the world for that matter – with or without prior experience.
… Who wouldn’t want that sort of freedom?
fyi: Internet-Marketing is also known as Online-Marketing.
I am (primarily) an “Affiliate-Marketer”. That means I earn a commission by promoting other people’s products.
They say, “life is a journey, not a race”. And that journey can be amazing – IF you let it. Keep an eye out for opportunities – do your due-diligence – then, if it feels right, give it your best shot!
One of the beauties of starting an online business, is it doesn’t have to be full-time unless you want it to be. That’s what I love about it.
*Would you like to be your own boss and work wherever you want?
*What’s your passion?
*What are your hopes and dreams?
*What sort of lifestyle do you want for you and your family?

Whatever you choose, have an amazing life….
