Are You Exploring A New Direction for 2023 – 😜
2020 – 2022 have been challenging years for all of us, but in every adversity lies the seed of an equal or greater opportunity.
We may feel depleted, emotional and overwhelmed by events which can make us feel we want to retract and do nothing. But it is important to join forces with others, seek God in prayer and push forward.
We know we must keep moving forward and remain positive and expect life to go better for us. When we remain positive and have inner conviction new doors open up.
My passion is Entrepreneurialism, encouraging and supporting others to reach their potential.

My journey as an Entrepreneur had some challenges, striving to be seen as a expert online with Social Media Marketing and earning an income to put food on the table. Only 24 hours in the day. Most of the work offered was commission only, Affiliate Marketing drained my resources, the remunerations were too low.
Network-Marketing consists of building a network of people subscribing to a service. When the network buy their service, we get paid a percentage and earn bonuses. This is called leveraging and gives a residual income.
Great news for inspiring Entrepreneurial people who are interested to start their own business, follow a proven system and receive mentoring and support from others who have made themselves successful. Part of which Leadership skills are offered to help you get with your limiting beliefs within yourself and learn how to deal with objections.
2023 – I joined the 🌏 Team. Joined the network UCAN2Network started by Mr Eric Gusevik –
Shop and buy nutritional & dietary products at wholesale prices while building a passive residue income lifestyle for yourself

What is your Passion and Purpose?
My passion and purpose is to be an Entrepreneur and to inspire others to use their gifts. It all started with the fact that our family history on my Father’s side originates from the Native Sioux Indian, via Grandmother who was in the Entertainments Business with Buffalo Bill‘s Circus
Sioux Indian’s are very spiritual – I have to confess to not knowing that much about them sadly but I do know and understand that they were very Psychic – and my Father had inherited the gift of Psychometry. He was very good at this and helped a lot of people. Lots of people came to our home to have a consultation.
I had a really good relationship with my father until my mother and I joined the local Church of England Church and I was confirmed in 1971. I think following the Christian faith and spiritually it was rather conflicting. Spiritualism is part of the Occult – Darkness v Light. after my Confirmation my father and I didn’t get along so well.
I was musical, was involved with singing and I learnt to play the guitar at school, participated in the choir and our school regularly put on concerts and musicals, both at my junior and the secondary school that I attended though being a Christian at school was another conflicting situation, so I didn’t have many friends and when I left school I went straight into Banking. I worked hard but didn’t get promotion and then was introduced to a job at the local theatre setting up the drinks in the interval. For seven years I used to work over 60 hours a week, in the Bank during the day and at the Theatre in the evenings.
In my early twenties I was re-united with my school friend who had chosen to go into the Hairdressing profession and she led me into Network Marketing, while I was out and about in the evening with Party Planning I met my future husband,
From time to time I had gone along and had the occasional Tarot card reading, which strangely enough from time to time was quite accurate and just before I was due to marry I went and had my birth chart drawn up. Sadly, I lost the information but did remember that I was told not to get married to this person, that we would be in conflict all the time! Well, it was too late to back out and hurt a lot of people so we got married in 1993 and had two lovely children, who are now teenagers and a great credit to us both, but sadly our relationship didn’t survive and we divorced in 2002.
When i had my birth-chart drawn up I was also advised that I was going to be a “Servant” “Writer” and also a “Nurse”
Well life being a journey and all these possibilities didn’t seem like they would happen to me at the time.
The years that followed the marriage break-up have been challenging and I have been glad of my involvement with the Church as a solid foundation to build my life on the ROCK of Jesus Christ. I committed my life to Jesus and became “Born Again” in 1997, my son was born in this year and also my Mother past away.
In my early twenties through to my late thirties I was on the committee for a local social club and had a very active social life also so community building is something I have learnt with recruiting people into the club
When my children were at their junior school I used to be a leader via the church with their youth club, I undertook this position for seven years. This also led me to go into their school with other church leaders for the “Jesus and Me Club”called “JAM Club”
In 2002 – I went back to college as a mature student and undertook the City and Guilds Diploma in IT ( the link is for info – I studied at Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne) and also changed my church and joined the Christian Outreach Centre Movement and undertook the Spirit, Soul and Body Bible School for two years. Within the Church we undertook the D.I.S.C personality test and this is where I then understood the concept the Servant and Servant Leadership.

Thankfully due to my working life I have gained the experience to be a good communicator and I am competent to make decisions. My Spiritual Gifts give me the discernment to pay attention to what remains unspoken and it is therefore important to listen to my inner voice\affimation from the Holy Spirit. I can rely on that inner voice in order to understand what the body, mind and spirit are communicating. I really love technology and I have been willing to follow and learn from the Social Media Experts and Geeks to learn all i can and now my ideal client is someone who is a true Entrepreneur. Combing with my passion for music really gives me the passion to help Musicians though i am willing to extend my services to everyone connected with the Entertainments Industry. In the past three years I have got involved with the local “Rock Music Community of Bands and Supporters and have made connectiions and new friends via their Community in London and World-wide.
I created this Blog – Daily Ramblings of a Professional Networker
to portray the “Life of Networking” online and offline. A diary of life experiences. I have had severe writer’s block for the past two years when i started to combine it with “Encouragement and Life Coaching” I had started to train to be a “Life Coach” but finding the people who wanted a coach and also the people i wanted to coach was a challenge. This is something i have had to put on hold temporarily for the time being though I pro-actively work as a Personal IT Coach and share articles and write articles that i share as a Social Media Expert.
I am about to embark on a course to train to be a Carer in the Community. I will be looking after people that rely on someone to come in and help them to remain independant by staying in their own homes. I will be doing this on a part time basis so i can also continue with my passion and purpose as an Entrepreneur to network with those that have the heart-felt motivation to inspire others to use their Entreprenerial Talents especially in the Entertainments Industry…
‘If you would go every day to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp axe, eventually, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down!!!
Basically, it is the same with Network-Marketing, in this case the FREE DREAM_TRIP you offer people the chance to have a free vacation, all they need to do is register and watch this movie – http://connector.windreamtrips.com Some people you ask won’t bother as they don’t believe you when you tell them there is no catch. Some people start watching the movie and when they see what it speaks about they give up half-way through so they then don’t activate the email that states they have watched the movie, so they don’t get in to the draw. Some people say point blank they don’t want the opportunity. Some of the people that actually watch the movie, may see and understand the opportunity and know it is for them, these are the people that I will work with. Well to find these people it is almost like looking for a needle in a Haystack. It wasn’t until I got involved with this business that I began to see how many negative and unmotivated people there were around, my own friends and relatives included!
Well, it is a numbers game to find those few people you need to ask just about everyone you come in contact with. So basically, you are back to this trust element – would people you have never spoken to before actually believe that out of the blue a total stranger would be offering them an opportunity to have a free vacation, no strings attracted! Sounds wildly unlikely doesn’t it – though in this case it is true as I am sure that if I persevere with my dream to achieve the living and a better lifestyle I will find other people who want to have the same.
I was taught a number of years back that the plan in a Christian’s walk was to be blessed so that in turn I would be able to give and bless others. Recently, someone sneered that it was a bad suggestion to be wealthy, but in fact the aim to be wealthy is to be in the position to give back to the community
. A wise man once said, ‘Effort only releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.’
Today, here and now I do not have a lot of money, I have a small income coming in every week but that is not enough to pay all my bills and move towards my dreams. However, I keep positive thoughts and continue to strive forward to meet the challenges and believe that the resources will be available to me when I need them.
Life is that journey and only when we are in the right place, opportunities, resources and the people we need to make it happen will be available to us. With my World Ventures business – it is people and not money that are the resources that I need to build the team and network of people that will give me the residual income. Due to the Binary plan – and two team legs, I just need 30 people more and I will be a Senior Representative. Basically, I need six people with the same mindset as me that can then bring six more people into this business team and then we have our 30 people, I may even win BMW.
Vision doesn’t follow resources, it happens the other way around. First we have a dream, then we have to move forward. Then-and only then-do people and resources follow. Then the plan God has given to us begins to fall into place. A wise man once said, ‘Effort only releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.’ People who succeed ‘see’ what others don’t. It’s what keeps them moving forward. ‘It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.’
Age is a number on paper, you really don’t need to look at how old you are and then limit what you can and can’t do or achieve.
When I was young – in my twenties I used to think people in their sixties and seventies were old, but in this day and age where people try and look after themselves, keep fit and keep in the fashion by having their hair coloured and styled certain people never lose their attractiveness. Beauty being only skin deep but what is in the heart reflects out.
In history we have some great people – for example Picasso who produced some of his greatest art pieces at the age of 90. In the Bible there was Noah who built the ark when he was 500 years old.
It is important to look around you and see what you can achieve and live every moment and life to the fullest. It is never too late to learn something new, speak out and encourage others also to live life to their full potential.
With regards to work, if you are like me and try and look at the big picture, that is not just looking at your own needs but also looking at those of other people’s and trying to achieve something that could assist others to get ahead.
We might find that our friends of whom we have known for years have stuck by us, but when we try and move ahead to start new ventures or try something new they don’t want to change their strategy and stop agreeing or offering the support we need. Networking does give us the umbrella and stepping stone to find like-minded people in which you may have a common interest. One of the main goals in business is of course to make some money, change your strategy and collaboration with new people may well be the key to get ahead.
In the Bible Proverbs 13.20 says “He who walks with wise men will be wise.”
When you make contact with people and share a concept or idea you have support to get things started and ongoing support and guidance to make it happen. If you all share the objective and are 100% behind the project you are going to make it happen, then with constant encouragement the project will be achieved.
Today, I am off to Liphook in Hampshire to meet with a couple of my Blackstar colleagues, quite a drive for me but we are going to check out a venue that we intend to use for future events.
We have a project in mind and we know that we come to the table and bring our various strengths and also our weaknesses that we can discuss and get help with.
Monday I managed to write an entry in this blog and also share what happened with my other WordPress Blog on Ecademy –
I had to follow my own Blog and comment on the comments posted, though sometimes with other people’s blogs I just don’t follow them due to the sheer volume of comments that result in emails to my email.
In order to raise my Klout score I have tried to initiate chat between people I have connected to. This is working out well with people and so my score has raised a fraction and people are starting to follow me. I know this is the case as I thanked someone for following me on my Slideshare Account and then got quite a few other people following. Actually, Slideshare syncs with Facebook which is handy should you be creating presentations that you want to share with a vast number of people.
I also joined a new network called “CommonRed” which is in Beta, I just connected with Tina Jonasen and the person who has created the network and this morning I have about 12 people on my contacts list and also an invitation to join someone’s Boardroom. Well it is exciting what happens while you are asleep;-)
I sync this blog to Twitter and LinkedIn so of course it was posted there on my profile. Quite a few people must have read it as I had over 350 invites to connect. As I write to each and every one it is slow for people to get accepted. People with silly masks on who haven’t taken the time to create their profile or have a business name and don’t write a note to let me know who they are I ignore and archive.
Update-Five years on….
I originally wrote this blog five years ago, quite a few changes have occurred so just thought it was a good idea to update.
Started of as a Sole Trader/Founder of Ivey Business Services in 1992, still operating the same. Became know as TheConnector – changed this to TheConnectorInt
Marketing is via Networking – all about relationships as Rob Peter’s would say #RelationshipCapital. – the art of getting to know people and finding out what they need. They in turn maybe interested in what you have to offer or maybe interested to give you referrals or advocate you or even better collaborate with you.
Collaboration is great because different people bring different skills to the table and so forming a team with everyone working towards the same purpose brings outstanding results.
I am delighted to be collaborating with Simon Barry from KiplingandKirbyVentures and also Rob Peters founder & CEO of StandardofTrust.com
I have always enjoyed Networking events and Simon needed to have a regular monthly meeting as an incubator for start-ups.
We have decided to hold this in the Southwark area of London as our 1st meeting of this autumn is on 7th September 2016. Please register your commitment to attend here
