Hi There

After a year I am writing again. There is so much happening, all positive.

I have now had two art exhibition this week in Swansea during 2021 and was really happy with the interest shown and the sales made. It is difficult to judge whether your art is liked or whether it is just yourself!  I started painting in earnest 18 months ago and have created around 100 paintings of various sizes. With no formal art training I have been a free spirit and painted what I wanted to do. And I have been very satisfied with my work.

I have mainly painted abstract work, all highly energised and dynamic, using both brushes and palette knives. 

Each painting is built up in layers of strong prime colours, often poured or applied directly to the canvas so that my work is both visual but also highly tactile and I like people to touch the surface and feel the ridges, bumps and other shapes.

This painting is one in a series of 4 which I will be expanding as they are so colouful, attracting the eye in any room setting. My paintings have become larger during the last few months and I am now producing work up to 2 metres wide. These are ideal for offices, boardrooms and showrooms. 

My paintings are not framed as I want them to be an integral part of the room setting and not as if you are looking out of a windoww or into a recess. So I extend painting onto the sides of each canvas. 
I have painted serveral themed works such as my "Elms" series with paintings of elms at different times of the year, and my "Feathers" series which are large canvases  

This photo is from my exhibition in the CReative Bubble in Cradock Street, Swansea which ran for 10 days and attracted a regular stream of passers together with some of my followers.

Another exhibition wa held at the Volcano THeatre in the large Seaside Gallery where I invited Jeffery Phillips, the well known Swansea Illustrator to show his works of Swansea history. He has a stunning collection of large paintings that show different aspects of the area over many years. At this exhibition he showed hos Copper City collection which was about Swansea in the 1800's when Swanseaas the world copper capital


At our opening of the Volcano exhibition we were pleased to have the Mayor of the City and County of Swansea to open the event. There was a very good turnout to see this show of around 80 paintings in total.
Please do take a look at my website where many of my works are shown. Also I have prints at 

Watch out for more about my work as an artist. Stay safe, be happy

 Fast moving, easy to follow and less than a tenner. Enrol now before the price goes up.

 Fight the Beast. Have you suffered financially over Covid19? Have you lost money, had a cut in wages, spent your savings to exist or even lost your job?

So you want money now. Maybe some extra money to put you back to where you were before this disaster happened: perhaps you need a job to replace the one you lost. You might even have realise that the job you have is not what you want and it is time for a change. Well here is a course that lays our dozens of ideas for full or part-time work that you can do without capital money, a vehicle, equipment, training or premises. Ideas that have been tried and tested over again. Ideas that don't depend on the internet. Ideas that can bring money in within days, without any catch. The level of work that you can do will depend 100% on your ability to take action and do something straight away, be strong and optimistic, and be positive and polite.

This course combines not just the ideas that will be your work of the future but how to market your project with no money (or very little). It combines two courses which had over 1900 students between them. We have combined the two and reduced the price to make it affordable to everyone. The course is full of ideas that are suitable for anyone with any level of education. The course consists of easy to follow videos that are fully self explanatory,

Most of these opportunities are local and need no special expensive equipment or other outlay, no special skills, no premises (you can operate from home), and no traveling. For many you need no transport. Where you will need equipment it will be low cost or something you use at home. In some cases as the business develops you will be able to invest in more robust equipment to improve the quality and speed. Some skills can be learned on the job or in an online course. Most are local projects with just a few on-line ideas. This course does not promises great riches overnight. It does offer you a steady income that you can begin today, and be paid on completion, in some cases paid in advance.

You should take this course if you are motivated and driven to succeed, if you are positive and prepared to take enthusiastic action. If you do not have those qualities then stop reading now!!

Hi There

Just imagine starting a full-time or part-time business that requires little or no training, no capital expenses so you can start with just having to buy a few basic tools or stock (and with several you'll not even need to buy tools, you'll probably have them already. No vehicle because you will be working locally. No premises because you will work from home. And no stock because you'll be selling services, using your skills.

You will use simple skills that you already have, so no need for long and expensive training. You can start within hours of reading this book and could be collecting money the same day.

Covid19 has been a ban of our lives. Each of us has been touched in some way. Many have been affected in hard ways. Used all their savings to survive, maybe lost their job even. The consequences can be hard and far reaching with rent or a mortgage to pay, food to shop for, gas and electricity too. Plus the many other expenses we have. 

That is why I have written the Start a Small Business Ideas manual. First published as a printed magazine some 40 years ago, the idea has been re-visited and new ideas brought to the table.

Most of these ideas are local businesses where the internet plays only a small part in your success. So you don't need to be a computer expert to succeed. IN fact Some have succeeded without owning a computer.

With over 117 ideas to start a business there must be something for everybody. All these ideas have been tried and tested at some time. Many can be turned into a full-time business that will support you and your family, all can be part-time business that will help you top up the losses in your savings account or repay the debts that you've accumulated during the lockdown period. With many you can start bringing in cash immediately, most are cash on completion so that there is no need to wait for payment.

We all want information in different formats. Some of you will like a printed book, others will read off their tablet or phone, whilst yet others will benefit from a video course where they can see, hear and read. So there are THREE options. The printed book, an e-book, and an online course. I've kept the cost down as low as possible and if you purchase the printed book from Amazon and are a Prime customer, then you'll get fast free delivery. If you purchase the e-book then you'll have the download within minutes, at a very low price. The online course is low-cost and affordable too.

Sounds to easy? Well it is but not many will actually start. Firstly you need to read the information and decide which project to carry out. Then you need to take action get out there and tell people about your new business. Only some 3 people in every 100 that read this book will take action. Most will be dreamers or finding excuses not to start, or putting off until tomorrow, which never comes.

If you seriously want to start making money tomorrow with no training or experience, no money, no vehicle, no premises and no stock then this is for you. ANYBODY can succeed, you just need the detemination and be ready to take the first steps. Whether you just want a few bucks a week to make up a shortfall or a full-time business you'll find the answer here. I do not make any claims of your success because that will depend on your state of mind and willingness to try something new. Sometimes you'll find you started the wrong project, give it time and if it doesnt work then try another. Don't waste time or money. Remember! The average young millionaire has tried up to 17 different ventures before finding the right one.

SALES AND MARKETING SUCCESS BLUEPRINT will be available on 1st October. This book a comprehensive list of marketing and sales ideas that will help you launch your new business using no-cost and low-cost ideas that have been proven to work. Watch out for more details. 

This book is based on the live course that has been running for almost 20 years and regularly updated, helping small businesses to success. Most of the ideas have, however, been around for longer and are the basis for a successful local business. 

Marketing is an area that is vital to any business. You can have the best product or service at a really competitive price and feel that everyone can benefit. But why aren't you selling any?

Earn Extra Cash

Hi Guys
   It's been a long time since I wrote on this blog but I'm starting again. There is so much happening that I want to share with you. On-line courses I've brought back on a different platform: my new website where you can order adverts for social media or your website: and I'm looking to work on Swan TV with local information and programmes that wil be available on the YouTube channel.
   I've just launched a new course that goes through a large number of ideas that you can turn into a part-time business on whatever level you want. 
   So many are now looking to supplement their income for a number of reasons. Some want that luxury or indeed basics that they can't afford like a luxury holiday. Maybe they want a new car, one that is more economical or ecological. Perhaps they just aren't earning enough, the cost of living doesn't get easier and some are taking jobs with lower wages than previous. It's possible that a new baby means that there will only be one wage in the foreseeable future. And there are other reasons.
   My new course, available by clicking here will guide you towards a selection of workable business ideas that can be run part-time and from home and usually without having to spend any money (apart from a small amout for advertising), no premises - just some space in the home or a shed or garage, no long training - some will require a little guidance from YouTube, and that can be started almost instantly. Many are local businesses whilst some are internet based. 
   Now for a very limited time there is a big discount so that you can pick up this course for peanuts, and it will be available for a year so you can look back over and over again. For the discount enter the code INTRO on the order form and save 75%.
   The course is made up of a series of short videos that are easy to follow and there is a viability plan included. Additional videos will be added regularly and there is a discussion area so that you'll get help when you need it.
    If you have any comments or questions there is room at the bottom of this page.
   Good Luck

Secret Closing Techniques that Work

Hi Friends

We are all selling throughout of lives. 

We might be sales-people, and out talking face to face or on the phone. We may be persuading our partner to go out to a movie rather than stay at home. We may be on a job interview for that dream position we have always wanted. Whatever your situation, you are selling.  Selling tangible objects or intangible ideas. 

And there are so many routes to bring people to your way of thinking. To persuade them to do what you want, sometimes without realising that what you said or did actually influenced them to make a decision in your favour.

Sometimes it is the words we use and sometimes how we actually use those words. Learning how to persuade is a skill that will put you in control and gain in all areas of your life. 

Here is an example of how words can bring about a positive result. Just think of a time when you wanted to persuade your life partner that a night out at a movie would be enjoyable and it was something you wanted to do. Money is tight, it's the end of the month but you just want a night out. You might say "Shall we go to see that movie? Lets finish eating and go. We will just make it for the early performance." The answer is likely to be negative.

Now let's reword that. Give some alternatives. Take the decision away from shall we spent the money we don't have to perhaps a minor decision of which performance to catch. We might say "That movie we wanted to see is on in town. You were talking about it at the weekend. We could go tonight. Which performance shall we go to? We could just catch the early show if we went as soon as we have eaten. Or, you could take some time and change and we then go to the last show. Which would you prefer?" Now I'm not saying that this will work 100% of the time but in my experience it works almost every time. Taking the other persons thoughts away from "Shall we go or not?" to "Which show shall we watch?" is an easier decision. You can use this in almost every situation. "Which colour do you prefer? Red or white", "Shall we asked the Whites to come with us or go by ourselves?" "That holiday you longed to go on. Shall we book to go to  . . . . .  or  . . . . . ?" 

Try this out when you are with the family, at work or if you are in a real selling situation like "I know you like this model. When would you like delivery? Tomorrow or would Thursday be better?" 

My course on Secrets of Closing Sales and Influencing People is available now. Just CLICK HERE  And you will be on the road to better success straight away.  

I've been delivering sales courses for over 35 years and seen some incedible advances in technology over that time. But you can bet, sure that eggs is eggs, that there have been no major changes in human behaviour. Yes there may be attitude changes galore but our basic human instincts are the same. We still aren't satisfied, we want more and better. And this is good because it drives us on to a better life. Seventy years ago fridges, freezers and dish-washers were luxury goods.

Now we all have them and in fact it's now becoming common to have more than one. So for example I know people with two dish-washers. 

How did we get to this stage? Because we want more and better. Often because we feel that we need to compete to be accepted. All of the emotions are the same as they were 1000 years ago. So the techniques for influencing people are the same as they were. We may use social media but face to face are the life blood of our society.  

So I'd highly recommend that you enrol in this course today and see the results tomorrow. CLICK HERE and I see you inside.

Good luck

Working from Home is Great

Hi Everyone

Working from home is just great. There are some really good benefits but you have to be so
focussed and selfish you’d not believe. If you slip you’ll find you can be crushed by the outside forces and the inner torment that can just destroy you.

I’ve worked from home for over 25 years apart from some short spells and I’ve gone through the best of times and worse of times. So here are some of the hurdles you’ll find on the path to home working success.

Work/Life balance
Working for a company gives you the structure that separates your life into segments. You get up, dress and groom yourself, travel to work for a set time, finish at a set time or work agreed overtime and then leave and go to your home life. Sometimes you might take work

home but usually you can stop working when you leave the office and not start again until you arrive next morning.

Working from home means you probably never stop working. You might have a home office but its usual to work on the dining or kitchen table in the evenings and even as soon as you get out of bed. It’s like an addiction. Whether you love it or hate it, you just can’t get away. You are tied to your business, probably your laptop which is constantly always switched on.

Mealtimes go out the Window and you famine or feast
Remember when someone yelled out “Anyone for a bacon buttie?” and there was a rush to pay the guy who was going to the sandwich bar to pick them up. Lunchtime comes and you go out, eat in the staff restroom or even work at your desk, but at least you ate at regular times.

Now you are working on that priority project or just get carried away and forget the time. Suddenly it’s 4 in the afternoon and you haven’t eaten. So you make a sandwich or grab a ready to eat snack. Then just a hour later you have a family meal but aren’t very hungry. Or you are drinking coffee with 2 sugars and snacking continuously during the day. Then
wonder why your clothes don’t fit!!

You become isolated
You worked with others and that had its ups and downs. But in the main you have an office social life where you interact with others. Might be small talk about what you did last night, the TV or football. Could be office meetings or discussing work. But you are talking to others
usually in an informal way with people you are familiar with. For some, the office life is their life where they are maybe unhappy or lonely at home.

people you meet online.
So you finish up becoming quite isolated. And that
might have an effect on your personality and your relationships with your
family. And it certainly can add stress and uncertainty. Do you begin to prefer
your own company, do you start talking to yourself! Do you start talking to
your pet goldfish.

Social Media becomes your Social Life
Being alone you stop for a while and hit Facebook.
That’s when your troubles really begin because you either start surfing within
Facebook as one connection leads to another.

Or . . . your life starts to revolve around
Facebook and you sink into the fantasy world of what everybody else is doing.
And begin to lead your life on theirs. And you may start texting or adding
posts to these “friends” pages whom are really at best just acquaintances and
often almost strangers. And this can lead to you not only wasting time but also
getting trapped in situations you just don’t want.

So . . . basically your social life just vanishes
into thin air, to be replaced with a fantasy world.  We all need to socialise but you’ve cut yourself

You can’t have a Sick Day
Working for yourself means you usually can’t afford
to take a sick day, or snowed in day when you just can’t get to work. When you
just need to roll out of bed and slouch down to your work area there’s just no

So not only do you miss those days which could be
spend out snowballing or just having a bit of fun. You stay alone, working. Outside
you see Mums and Dads having fun with their kids. You aren’t paid by the hour.
You have to complete to compete.

Are you busy? Can you just . . . ?
And you know what’s coming next. Nobody thinks you
work. Your time is almost your own. But on second thoughts it not. Your time is
everybody else’s.

“Sorry to bother you but can you just drop Mary off
at college. She’s late and it’ll only take you 10 minutes”  Yes!. Suddenly that 10 minutes is 10 minutes
there and 10 minutes back. “And whilst you are out we need some milk and a loaf
of bread. Can you just stop off and get it? Oh and don’t use the corner shop,
they are too expensive.” So you go out of your way to the supermarket. The total
time is now over an hour!!

Then there are the friends who drop in or call you
and want to tell you about their latest escapade with the car parking in town.
And that’s another hour gone. So you decide to clamp down on this and tell
everyone that you are working and not on a sabbatical. That works for a couple
of days then back to the old routine.

Working in an office and nobody calls you to do a
pick up! Everybody respects that you are working.

Your Neighbours wonder what you do
What does Jim do all day? He doesn’t seem to work
and when he goes out he looks so unkempt. Maybe he lost his job. Maybe he’s an alcoholic.
He’s always in old clothes. Strange man isn’t he.

And suddenly you are being accosted when you go out
and asked some strange searching questions
. . .  or you are ignored. So once
again you are losing that social interaction and get strange looks. So you are
talking and drop into the conversation that you write courses online. And you
get those funny looks and you can almost hear the gears in their brains
clinking into action “What does he mean? I don’t really like to ask because he’ll
think I’m stupid”

Looking Good
Remember when you wore a suit every day? Those were
the days. Looked good, felt good. Knew you were the smart guy. Always a sharp

Working from home it’s sloppy joe time. No need to
dress up. Old jeans, trainers and a sweatshirt. Fine. You feel comfortable. Some-one
had told you that when you dressed well and felt good then your work was
better. But you just can’t be bothered. And your work does probably suffer.

You look at yourself in the mirror and suddenly realise
that you need a shave if you’re a guy or haven’t used make-up for days as a
woman and you look like you are recovering from a hangover.

Office Parties a thing of the past
those office parties? Xmas or some other celebration like a birthday or
leaving. Any excuse. Leave work, head for a bar or go for a meal and have a
laugh. Get to know everyone better and let your hair down. It’s time to relax.

But working alone you have nobody to celebrate
with. You could go down the pub and sit in the corner. No. Just forget it. You
can’t even reclaim the tax on a Christmas dinner. Ah well. Better get on with

Getting some exercise
I worked in an office some years ago selling
conservatories by phone. This was about 1998. We used to do the whole sale by
phone. No salesman visiting to close the deal. It was hard but rewarding. But
my point here is that every lunchtime a couple of us would go out and just walk
for about 30 minutes. It was an industrial estate so nothing particular to see.
But we used to get back to work and be active in the afternoon whilst everyone
else began to get tired. I also rememeber that I was pretty fit.

Working alone you’ll keep going all day and then
wonder why you are tired in the afternoon. You’ll have forgotten what fresh air
smells like and you will become lethargic. Life will be work, work, work.

But it’s not all Bad
I’ve listed out the bad things about working for
yourself from home but there are some great advantages.

You don’t have to slop around the house or feel
isolated. You can have a work/life balance and be respected by your friends and
neighbours. You just need to bring that discipline you have in working for a company
into your life. It does mean self discipline but you just need to get some new
habits into place.

The main benefits, however, in working for yourself
is that you can achieve what you want. Whether you want money, fame,
satisfaction or anything else, it’s possible. If you work for yourself now, you’ll
know this is true. There is nobody else you need to rely upon. Just yourself. 

Be positive. Take Action
