So who am I?
As you can see by the header title my name is Ken Nickless .
I am a seventy six years young retired businessman, entrepreneur, internet marketer, avid golfer, traveler, married with three grown up children and currently six grand children.
I live between apartments in Brisbane and Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast.
The scene behind my photo and the one in the header is the view I wake up to each day when I’m at Runaway Bay. I think you’ll agree it’s quite spectacular and makes one feel glad to still be on the right side of the grass!
Educated at a Public School in England and after studying Print at the Birmingham School of Print I left England in 1968 and headed for New Zealand.
So what’s my background?
In 1970 I co-founded Screencraft Manufacturing, a company specializing in product marking and printed circuit manufacture. After a few years we were approached to partner with Fisher & Paykel (The White Goods Giant) and Thorn EMI (Major Television & Electronics Manufacturer) and in this partnership we built the business into a multi million dollar company employing some 130 staff. We subsequently sold our interest back to Fisher & Paykel in the mid eighties after a long successful relationship.
We subsequently moved our family to Queensland, Australia in the late eighties to concentrate on our second business ventures which we co-founded, Colorscreen Print Pty. Ltd, and later Colorcorp Pty, Ltd. These companies specialized in high volume advertising screen printed products for major organizations, garment manufacture, promotional products and merchandising. Our company was heavily involved in the manufacture of NRL and AFL football jerseys,both player and retail for the apparel arm of Nike. We prided ourselves that we were the first organization in Asia to be allowed to make Nike products and had to adhere to very strict quality control and business practices to retain their business. Every year we were subject to a full audit of our business operations to ensure we were doing everything by the book.
So what am up to now?
We retired from that business some thirteen years ago so after some 40 odd years of very hard work we needed to take stock and relax and look forward to spending more time with family and friends, travel extensively, play more golf, and spend my spare time pursuing my other passion, “anything to do with computers, writing and internet marketing.”
I have spent countless hours since I retired researching how to learn online affiliate marketing. I taught myself programming, web design, traffic generation, social media advertising and PPC advertising.
I feel that with my previous business background over many years, my in depth knowledge of marketing, online marketing ideas and my ability to turn these skills into cash should at least give the reader confidence in what I may impart as I continue to build this site.
Success Breeds Success!
