Accra, Ghana
I'm from Accra, Ghana. 38, going on to 39 in less than two months. Married and have a 3-year old boy, with one on the way.

I started my career in the telecom world as an RF Planning & Optimization engineer, but quickly caught the "entrepreneurial seizure" (as Michael Gerber would say) and jumped ship to start my own IT consulting company.

My dream at the time was to build a so-called "lifestyle business", and, unfortunately, that's exactly what I built. Shocker :wideyed:

In the past 2 years I've dabbled in everything IT: from running an outsourced helpdesk... to... infrastructure management... to... general consulting to certification tutilage... to... more recently, running (and selling) my own tiny web hosting + design business.

Now that my vagabonding life has ended... now that I have a family... my dream, or perhaps my "lifestyle" has changed.

I'm unable to be (and frankly, I don't enjoy being) the bull-dog engineer I once was anymore: a one-man gang on call 24x7, climbing towers, and willing to spend an entire day to a solve tricky problem to save a client $100!

I want to be able to use my varied tech skills, can-do problem-solving spirit, and passion for teaching to help exponentially more people... instead of doing in-person IT support for a handful of tiny businesses in my locality.

It was doing one of these "conversations" that one of my mentors recommended I read MJ's book, The Millionaire Fastlane (along with four other books he recommended)... and that's how I got here :)

Right now I'm still in the design phase of my "next life", and I'm hoping this forum will be the help-and-be-helped supporting community I can sail away with.

Thanks to MJ for the gift of wisdom you share in your books, and for providing and nurturing this community.

Thanks to all of you who have shared your nuggets of wisdom here, and to all the moderators who help to administer this big community.

And thanks to YOU... for reading my introduction!

It's really refreshing to see the man himself present and actively participating in the community.

Highly appreciated!

(By the way, MJ, the DOWNLOAD link in your signature is broken... it leads to a MailChimp 404 not found page. I've purchased the Kindle version of both books already, but curiosity made me click the link :) )

Thank you George for your intro (I went looking for it). Love the family photo, and good luck with the new addition on its way.

I used to be an IT dude. You can hear a wee bit about it in the first radio interview in my signature.

It sounds like you already have all the customer facing skills needed, and all your welcomes to new members since you’ve joined say a lot. That’s why I went looking for your intro... to thank you for welcoming so many people when you are so new to the forum yourself. Good work.

I think the 300 surveys chat in my signature may interest and help you.

Rep+, and thanks.
