G’day! My name is Heather Wilson; I’m 54 years of age and live in Mackay, North Queensland, Australia, a small town with a country feel. I’m super excited to be sharing with you a short story of my life and experiences.
I’m a pretty laid back sort of person with a huge heart. I live with 2 of my 3 dogs, Bonnie and Fluffy. I call them my “Fur Babies”. Recently my other dog, Sammy, passed away. I am from a family of 4, the only girl with 3 brothers. My parents have passed away and one of my brothers passed away at age 53, 8 years ago, from a tumour in his liver.
At 12 years old, I started working after school, so I could have my own pocket money. Since then I have had many jobs ranging from being a shop assistant, sales and marketing, office manager, accounts manager and cleaning just to name a few.
I have travelled since I was 17, going overseas then back to Australia. I drove around Australia then flew overseas again. While overseas I lived in South Africa for 4 years then moved to the UK for 4 years, Scotland for 1 year, Holland for 1 year amongst other places I lived for shorter periods. I love meeting people of different cultures and making new friendships.
I have always been entrepreneurial and had big aspirations. I believed there was more to living than just working hard long hours for someone else to make them rich. I was brought up to work hard. My mother was a great example of that; she worked until she was 70. At the end of her working life she went on the pension living on a minimal amount of money per fortnight. After all these years of working and raising a family she had time but no money. This is not what I wanted for my life, I knew I could have more and there was a better way of life for me, so I began to search for that better way.
Around this time the internet had just appeared, I saw great opportunity with the internet. I missed the dot com surge at the beginning, as I had no idea what I was doing or how to capitalise on it. Over the past 20 years I have been hot and cold, stopped and started, tried and failed many times over. My friends have been telling me for years to stop wasting my time and money on my dreams and just work and save your money for retirement. That has never sat right with me. I was different to my friends, I had a dream and I believed I could attain it and live it out in full.
It was December 2014; I had just been made redundant from the construction industry. I decided to spend Christmas with my niece on the Sunshine Coast. During this time I started searching online again. I came across an affiliate program that sounded really interesting and different to other ventures I had looked at and been involved with.
I contacted my friend, Michele, whom I met in 2010 at a personal development and wealth creation seminar. We had hit it off straight away and remained great mates. We arranged to attend a seminar detailing various affiliate programs and online strategies. We met 2 of the hosts/trainers at this event who had made money from using these strategies online. They became our mentors/coaches. The rest is history; we now have our own digital online business.
I am living the dream life I believed I could have and am helping other people who are searching for a better way of life to do the same.
