Hi and welcome to us here at the Mepstar team, a growing on line community.
We are here to help with your online success, possibly do so by highlighting how we have stuffed up our self – and why it taken us 10 to 15 years to get where we are today.
But firstly some quick basic facts;
Mona E Persson;
Born 1985 in Engelholm Sweden, and growing up in a small city called Åstorp with about 10,000 inhabitants.
And the young age of about five years, specifically in November 1990, Mona packed the bags and left for lifelong journey to the wonderful continents Australia. Settling down in a nice little village, or the Gold Coast suburb of Mudgeeraba in January 1991.
Olle R Persson;
Born a few years earlier in the same town in the same country and grew up in the same city, not much exciting changes there, at least not up until Mona’s departure year of 1990.
Being a parent of Mona, Olle too packed the bags and headed for Australia in November 1990, and have enjoyed every minute (almost) of their now 23 year’s in the wonderful land down under. The Sunshine State Queensland, and Mudgeeraba which he still to this day calls home.
Being a mechanical engineer by trade, will it slipped into the digital world and computers through the engineering field;
Industrial robots installation, programming and servicing.
Barriers process management computers, PLC systems.
And in the 1990s, did a lot of computer aided drafting. CAD.
The actual computer, or specifically PC use, started in the mid 1980s, wonderful things without hard drive but with two slots for 360 Kb floppy disks.
Building computer networks on coax cables in the mid 1990s, and being hooked up to dial-up Internet connections at the rate of $5.00 per hour in 1995. One memory from that era, was shaped rooms and forums specifically; Walters Extrusion Pub, a plastic industry forum where they chatted and found solutions to all kinds of plastic extrusion problems.
Olle made contact with a Professor at a California University through these online forum, a connection that led to an initial machine sale to the value of $25,000 – as well is subsequent follow-up sales of about $5000.00 to the same university.
This was now up to the late 1990s, and it was the foundation for a long-term quest in learning computers, Internet, and the online marketing secrets. Secrets which there are quite a few of, and which are accumulated and should be revealed from time to time on these websites, and a blog.
In the early 2000’s, Olle enhanced his skills over a couple of years as a full-time IT student, studying language such as; HTML, CSS, JAVA, ASP and others.
After these student years it was full-time IT, website design and development, service and maintenance including hosting both own and clients websites. During the years as a website developer it became more and more obvious, that the money isn’t in the field of spending once I was working for other companies and websites.
One need to work on directly owned sites, establishing automated systems – and aiming for the passive, or at least almost passive, cash flows.
So here we are, building streams of income, and helping others do the same. The Internet is a wide arena, these giant have room for us all and we need not worry about competition, scarcity of saturation.
Welcome to the club, please join up if you haven’t done so already.
