Old my story
Where I was...
I have started, succeeded and failed several businesses. The highs were very high ($2,3million within 4 years) and then the lows are not earning anything. So I have bootstrapped and I have had investors, and there are good and bad things in either.
I am at a stage of my life where I want to share my passion to teach online eCommerce owners to succeed, be free to earn money wherever they are and we will have a lot of fun doing it. I discovered eCommerce for the small entrepreneur in 2010 and have been helping and teaching small business owners (and there were a couple of large ones as well) how to negotiate all the intricacies of running an online store.
My customers turned into students and then friends. We have been together for about 4 years now and I know I have helped them to grow their businesses 300%.
We all have had ups and downs, but one thing is constant, I am there for them when they need me. We have formed a close-knit community of sharing all our hopes, victories and disappointments.
What I love...
I love living on my boat, spoiling my grandbabies, having quality time with my kids, meeting with friends, a good glass of wine at sunset, driving my Karman Gia in Spring and Fall with the top down, and popping back to Namibia to spend time with my family.
Oh and cooking, reading, teaching people about online business and learning new stuff all the time.
And, what's my passion...
My passion is teaching people how to start a successful online ecommerce business on a small budget. With hands-on training and workshops, you will learn to manage your business without spending a lot of money and I will teach you how to make money doing it.

"Thank you, professor. This was the most interesting and practical lecture that I had" ~ a Student of class '22 at the Polish University Civitas
It has been encouraging to see the progress and enthusiasm to start their own businesses and ideas.
I am originally from Namibia, Africa, born and bred. I only left Namibia to go to college because there was no higher education in Namibia. At that stage we were South West Africa.
I lived in South Africa, whre I collected a hubby and kids and then we moved to The Netherlands and now in Houston Texas in the United States.
My family has expanded with my two wonderful daughters-in-law and their families and our grandchildren.
Today we're going to talk about artificial intelligence and how it's going to radically change the way that we create content online.
Frequently you will hear entrepreneurs say that they started their business because they wanted more freedom, more money, or more influence.
