2005-2008: A.W.O.L.

Burned out, I became ill (alcohol and drug addict) and quit. I disappeared and went to walk the highways and byways of the British Isles.

I still kept up with honing my marketing skills. I just didn’t have it in me to write, publish or market anything during this time. The toll of running a controversial publishing company had hit me hard.

I learnt an awful lot about what not to do. Don’t enter controversial markets, that will draw down the heat of the authorities (even though everything I was doing was legal). And don’t get involved in markets where there are more sharks than fish!

Life’s too short to be kickboxing every day.
