Inspiring and Thought Provoking

This whole post was in my Kanbanflow so I left in to remind to buy one. – the only thing I need to buy for a long time apart from coffee (I haven’t got one of these yet).

The eCommerce Store – Year 2003


Having done well on eBay back in the day there were so many loopholes and it was so easy to make money due to the lack of people selling eBay was quality. Consumers were lapping up the fact they thought it was a carboot sale and enjoyed cheap deals.

I started selling all sorts to get a feel for it. Auctions mostly not Buy It Now.

I was looking for more opportunities and a friend of mine contacted me with his idea for a store that sold memory for cameras – SD Cards, Flash memory.

He needed big cash to get the prices down on the distributors this is where another work colleague came in who happened to have the cash that was needed. Basically this lead to around a £15k purchase of Lexar Memory Cards.

Putting them on eBay and they flew because it was so simple we were just the best prices around not difficult business sense here. Buy in large quantity then sell low = easy profits.

Of course, there was just no competition around then.

We were doing around £6 grand a week on eBay alone.

My friend was working but at the same time this was taking off quick – he learned to use a website building tool I think it was called

At the time this was a great push button solution to get a store up within a day. Downside was using Worldpay as our Merchant who at the time used to take a cut of the transaction and then would hold your funds for 4-6 weeks!!

We couldn’t operate like this as we needed the turnover of cash – any new business knows cashflow is king.

Note: unless this has changed I would advise against using them.

At one point they almost stopped us trading as we couldn’t purchase new stock – luckily we found a new solution which was Sagepay formely Protx. These guys were great we could bank our cash quickly and turn it over faster.

How I Make Money with BetAngel – Year 2017


Strange how things work out and you end up testing a new way to make money online.

Since 2010 my SEO income has disappeared slowly before my eyes. I could work harder at getting clients but I cant seem to motivate myself to do so. Leads I hate but converting the client I can do well and ranking websites. Before you think it, yes I have ranked my own websites again things are just tougher/take more time now – to be honest I don’t have the patience to wait for rankings unless I am being paid to do so for a customer.

Online moves so quick I want instant gratification on anything I try – I can test a make money idea at 10am and have so much information on by 3pm that come 9pm I may have built a website or automated a procedure or even made money. If this happens and I havent spent much I may leave this idea to run or kill it within that day.

I am not a gambler and am not addicted to losing sorry but gamblers dont WIN or make a sustainable income. I used to have a little Saturday crazy accumulator bet which some people would laugh at with odds of 200,000/1 chance of coming in. I would bet wins on 20 x UK football teams to WIN outright.

At 0.05p with a chance of winning 250k I do it to test my best so gar is 13 wins from 20 —- For fun I will do a video on this soon to add to this post.

This all lead me to find BetAngel Software after testing Match Betting (another story post coming on that soon)

(rambling on sorry) – I wanted to build a picture around the reason I test ideas/strategies mostly for myself to revisit one day.

\\How I make money with BetAngel// (I write this and I am still using the demo 7 day trial)

The best way to do this is in screen shots for now then maybe a Video later.

Step 1:
I first watched around 20 of Peter Webbs Videos to get me comfortable with the software and the basics.

Step 2:
Traded Horse Racing using small funds straight away.

Step 3:
Tweaked the software to suit me then tested larger stakes.

Step 4.
Find a strategy that can be sustained overtime.


When I posted this I was using BetAngel because I haven’t used it since due to not being able to afford the monthly subscription I have forgotten what I did.

I will update this post when I use it again.

I was enjoying it but you need a decent bank roll to turn it into a sustainable business.

Problems in Later Life


The work will change housing will be segmented  into couples and singles. Older women 50+ live together in apartments with garden areas and communal areas.

Older men 50+ live together with garden and communal areas.
Water will be our main problem by 2050
Oil is dangerous and prices will only get higher as there is more need to burn it and damage our World.

Someone needs to find a other way to run our world Oil is killing the ocean and wildlife and us. Families have finally realized it’s far better for our world to have 2 children maximum and by 2020 this will be the norm which is good for population in a world that cannot sustain more than 10 Billion humans.

Be Happy


Some people are simply the wrong match for you.
You will only ever be as great as the people you surround yourself with, so be brave enough to let go of those who keep bringing you down.  You shouldn’t force connections with people who constantly make you feel less than amazing.
If someone makes you feel uncomfortable and insecure every time you’re with them, for whatever reason, they’re probably not close friend material.  If they make you feel like you can’t be yourself, or if they make you “less than” in any way, don’t pursue a connection with them.  If you feel emotionally drained after hanging out with them or get a small hit of anxiety when you are reminded of them, listen to your intuition.  There are so many “right people” for you, who energize you and inspire you to be your best self.  It makes no sense to force it with people who are the wrong match for you.

What you own is not who YOU are.
Stuff really is just stuff, and it has absolutely no bearing on who you are as a person.  Most of us can make do with much less than we think we need.  That’s a valuable reminder, especially in a hugely consumer-driven culture that focuses more on material things than meaningful connections and experiences.
You have to create your own culture.  Don’t watch TV, don’t read every fashion magazine, and don’t consume too much of the evening news.  Find the strength to fill your time with meaningful experiences.  The space and time you are occupying at this very moment is LIFE, and if you’re worrying about Kim Kardashian or Lebron James or some other famous face, then you are disempowered.  You’re giving your life away to marketing and media trickery, which is created by big companies to ultimately motivate you to want to dress a certain way, look a certain way, and be a certain way.  This is tragic, this kind of thinking.  It’s all just Hollywood brainwashing.  What is real is YOU and your friends and your family, your loves, your highs, your hopes, your plans, your fears, etc.
Too often we’re told that we’re not important, we’re just peripheral to what is.  “Get a degree, get a job, get a car, get a house, and keep on getting.”  And it’s sad, because someday you’ll wake up and realize you’ve been tricked.  And all you’ll want then is to reclaim your mind by getting it out of the hands of the brainwashers who want to turn you into a drone that buys everything that isn’t needed to impress everyone that isn’t important.
