Thoughts of a middle aged man…..25 September 2012


Brian is not in a good way tonight, I have not seen him in so much pain with his back for quite a while. He has no idea why tonight, he has not done anything out of the ordinary, I suppose it is just one of those things.

Brian’s back and Ryan’s hip. My son Ryan has been working away in the Challenger mines but yesterday he had a bit of a fall and has hurt his hip. He limped back into Adelaide today and is off for x-rays tomorrow, fingers crossed he has done no long-term damage.

The entrepreneur in me is a little frustrated at the moment. I thought that by becoming an affiliate of Amazon and setting up Graham’s Goodies sales would come in relatively easily, not the case. I’m just not sure what else to try, I have changed the site numerous times, added retailers, removed retailers, nothing seems to work. I know I am competing against some big retailers out there, but this is Amazon come on, everything they have I have. You know when I first tell people about Graham’s Goodies and the affiliation with Amazon a number of them have said, “Oh I buy from Amazon all the time”. Can I suggest we keep at least some of that money in Australia, check out Graham’s Goodies.

Maybe I should give this site up and find something else I can sell, something unique, but what. If you have any ideas I would love to hear from you. Then again Amazon is more orientated to the USA, so maybe I should find retailers more suited to Australia.

I’ll keep thinking about it for a bit and see what happens Thank you for reading.

    You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.

    A suggestion – have you thought about looking for a niche market? (90’500 people searched for racing pigeons last month) xx

      Thanks Anita. Yeah I have tried the racing pigeon thing and nothing. I even contacted every racing pigeon assoc in Australia and nothing. I think I just have to stop. The Universe is telling me I should not be in business. Watch that last step in NZ, its a looloo.
