Hello and Welcome
I would like to give you a very warm welcome to my personal blog website and to thank you for taking the time to check it out.
If you are anything like me, you have an interest in entrepreneurship and online business. I have always had a facination and admiration of people who became successful entrepreneurs. However prior to getting into more detail, let me tell you a little about myself.
There are different reasons why I started my online business. Here in North America and around the globe, the world is going through a transformation. The economy is shifting very quickly and when my last position was abolished I knew I had to do something so that I can be financially self-sufficient. When I looked around at my options which had a low start-up cost, I concluded that online entrepreneurship was the best avenue to go. The main advantage of this was the combination of the low start-up cost and that it can be managed anywhere in the world through an internet connection (Virtual Office). The fact of having the potential of working from home and avoiding all the commuting traffic was definitely a motivating factor. Only the last fact alone is gold in my book!!!!
I created this site because I wanted to meet and network with other entrepreneurs in the same situation and help inspire them to discover a better alternative just like I did.
I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I am of Italian and French decent (from Quebec and not France). I have a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology and Special Education from Université de Montréal. At the time when I finished my bachelor's degree, I had a hard time finding full time work. I ended up working in the Retail Industry and have been working ever since mostly in Loss Prevention (Corporate Security) at various management levels.
I have always been fascinated by learning something new. For a period of time between contracts, I worked as a Blackjack Dealer at the Casino de Montreal. This facination led me to different adventures, including this online opportunity.
I got married in 2012 to my loving wife Lori Hurdle Teoli and we both love to travel. We have been to Europe, the Caribbean many times, United States (that does not really count because its part of North America), and South America. Always ready to leave for a new adventure....
Being born and raised in Montreal, I am a huge Montreal Canadians fan. For those who do not know them, they are the most prestigious hockey team in the National Hockey League (NHL). They have won 24 Stanley Cups (Championships) the most of any franchise to date. I am in general a sports fan...especially team sports like hockey, baseball, football and soccer. The team spirit that reigns in these sports is very valuable and a good asset to have in any business environment.
I also love keeping things light. Do not get me wrong, I am a hard worker and when it is time to be serious, I definitely mean business. However if you can have a good sense of humour, learn from your mistakes, and always attempt to move forward, life does not appear to be as dark and difficult that it often could be. This type of attitude will often lead to opportunities.
Why a Blog on Business Strategy and Opportunities?
What made me want to start a blog in the first place? Since I have been searching for various business opportunities and strategies online, it is hard not to notice the amount of misinformation that is on the internet. Not only misinformation, but dated old sites and blogs where the information is not relevant anymore. I found that many of the strategies promoted were excellent 2 to 3 years ago, however not effective anymore. An example of this is telling people to invest into a web creation service, when now with services like Wordpress, Wix and Squarespace, you can create and host your professionally looking website for a low monthly fee. Yes it is more work, however when you are starting off, you would like to keep your costs at a minimum. In my opinion it is a good place to start. I did not come across an actual blog or site that tried to sort through this type of irrelevant information and present the current and emerging tendencies. That is one of the reasons why I wanted to start this blog.
The second reason is that a blog and social media are the best way to reach out to people who have the same interests. This blog is intended to reach out to online entrepreneurs, new and existing, and to those who are not sure if it is an avenue they want to take. It is also a place where you can find current business news and emerging startegies in the business world. I can not guarantee any results; however I can guarantee that you will be very well informed not only on online / ecommerce strategies, but also on the psychology and mindset that is involved when you own your own business.
The undertaking of going into business for yourself should not be taken lightly. This adventure should be viewed as a long-term journey to living your life independently and on your own terms.
This is what my blog is all about. I would like to thank you again to have taken the time to know me a little better of where I come from and where I am heading. As a token of my appreciation, I would like to offer you this free e-book below:
