Life before the internet was fine for me because I was very busy. First of all bringing up my son and also helping my husband with his businesses. Later on I was running my own restaurant and that did not leave much time to spare for any interests except horseriding.
I learnt so much from just surfing the internet in the beginning I thought and still do think that it is super awesome. It changed the course of my life with the information and training that are available. I was able to run my mortgage business from Dublin after I found my 100 year old mother and spent the final year of her life caring for her until she was almost 104. The internet helped eased the loneliness of being a carer and kept me in touch with the rest of the world. Without it I would probably have been completely stressed out. I was still able to keep in contact with my family and friends.
Later it helped me cope with a split up of a 27 year relationship. The time I spent learning about internet marketing was a great diversion for which I am very grateful.
I really don’t know how I could cope without the internet now. It has been my rock and enabled me to set up another business online. A business which has cost very little compared to the investment needed for most off line businesses.
