Find out more about me here. I’m down at the beach on the East coast of Spain, just a few minutes walk away from home.
My goal is to help you open up the doors of opportunity. I set up WebPressive.com in 2015 because I wanted to share what I was doing in my own business, and give you some ideas that are going to help you get off the ground.
My motto is “you have to start somewhere”, and once you’ve made a start, it’s much easier to hone down those ideas and make changes than it is sitting around waiting for something to happen.
Are you keen to get going?
You Have To Start Somewhere!
1. You Have to Start Somewhere
That’s what I did. I’d come to a point in my life where I knew I had to make some changes or life was going to carry on just the same as it was. I’d turned 40 and I wanted to start building something with some meaning and some future to it.
I didn’t get it right first time! But I did learn a lot. First off I began to learn how to build a blog. That was a good move, but I let it go. Then I tried various “make money online” methods, and they all cost me money. But I did discover that I enjoyed building my website skills, so I decided to see where that would take me.
2. Trial and Error
For building websites I started out with WordPress, and that was another good choice. It helped me discover a whole new world of opportunity. Still, it wasn’t all straightforward.
I tried building websites for clients, but didn’t want to be tied down supporting them. I wanted to be in control of my time more. So I started showing people how to build their own websites with WordPress. Eventually I started putting courses together and publishing them online.
Maybe this was the answer…
3. Honing Your Skills
That first e-course was a bit of a flop, but “you have to start somewhere”, right? The next one did better. Finally I had found something I was good at and loved doing. That’s when things began to turn around.
My creative thinking had started to kick in, after so many years in a career where I didn’t need to be creative at all. Soon I had more ideas than I knew what to do with.
Alongside the e-courses I was building websites in all kinds of niche markets, either to generate income, to sell, or to build my personal skills.
4. Work on Myself
Personal development started to become the undercurrent to everything I was doing. I knew if I could work on myself, everything would start to click into place.
That led me to start building a plan for my Personal Development, and I tried to incorporate some of my plan into my e-courses.
That led me to decide to develop a Personal Development Platform that I could share with others. The idea is to give you a foundation for your personal growth, together with some tools to work with.
At this point in time, it’s an ongoing project, part of the journey that I’m on. But I hope to be able to share some of it with you soon.

I hope that’s given you a taste of what I’m about and where I’m coming from.
A great place to start is to take one of my free courses, and join the Facebook group where you’ll find others who are just starting too. Get involved in the group and I’m sure you’ll find you have a valuable part to play.

I WANT TO BUILD MY OWN E-COURSE TO POSITION MYSELF ONLINE
Building my own e-courses has played a big part in positioning my business online. It’s a little like writing a book. People get to know a bit about you, like what you’re doing and begin to trust you.
It’s not as hard as you might think, but it’s not that simple either.
