About Me

Hi, my name is Mark Austin.

Here’s a little bit about me.

Home online business barrie. Low cost business on a shoe string budgetWe are a typical suburban family, as far as I can tell. 

I enjoy classic rock music and cooking.  I don’t mind some gardening,  and I’m pool boy in the summer. 

I play bass guitar for fun when I get some down time.  On the rare occasion when everybody is out except me, I’ll crank the music and play my bass or guitar.  Life’s simple pleasures.

I am also working a part time home based business outside of what I do currently.  I do it for the reasons explained below.

In my working career I’ve been let go, downsized, and escorted out.  One day you’re working, the next day your life has been turned upside down because of somebody’s decision.


I learned a long time ago you cannot rely on any one particular stream of income, and you better have more than one skill!


Companies change all the time and people can loose their jobs in an instant. I’ve been there, it’s not a good time!


So I started A PLAN B!


Some people take on a second job, or go back to school to learn new skills for the job market, or do nothing at all!


In my opinion, it’s really the only way to generate income on a part time basis that you have one hundred percent control of.


The fact that a person  can build a business on a level playing field, part time from home, and on the Internet, really inspires me to make a difference for myself, my family, and the people I meet.


There are endless amounts of people that are thinking that they need more money.

There are even less people that actually do something about it!  


The good thing is that more people are realizing that there are some great opportunities out there in the direct selling industry.


These are the people that are willing to learn new things, attend some local meetings,  webinars, and read books on personal development,  marketing, and other industry related topics.

Home or Online business is not for everybody, but there are plenty of great people out there that are looking for a Plan B Opportunity that would change their lives.


Some people think “If it’s too good to be true it probably is.”

I’ve also heard “it’s better to stay with the devil we know than go with the devil we don’t know.”  Responses like “Do I have to sell anything?” makes me think about who I’m talking to.  

Or “my friend tried something like that and failed”.



Old Wives tales or whatever… I say Blah to all of that!   There are plenty of scams out there! In every industry I can think of there is somebody doing something immoral or illegal!    


Just reasons that people say because they are comfortable in their life, even if they are broke, or in need of positive change.


From religion to banking, politics, education, medical, policing and law, real estate. The list is endless, yet people still go to school, church, vote, get medical help and everything else.  So what does that tell you?  


It’ people, not industry.  People are in control of their destiny, not some, corporate entity, bad auto loan, or poor paying job! 

   I think that too many people settle for status quo. That’s the way we are taught as children, through our parents and education.  Anyway, this is the end of my thoughts on that or I’ll never stop!


About my services.


I’ve always been into buttons and wires electronics, and communications.  I had Walkie Talkies as a kid, radios, and parts of things to fool around with.


When the internet came out and I discovered I could make a webpage, I was pretty much hooked!  WordPress took a long time to get here!

As an employee, I’ve always been in the technical side of things except for a few jobs along the way.

As an Independent business owner, all my services are in communications.

From Telephone, Internet, Security, Point of sale, Auto responders, mobile phones.  These are all ways to move data/voice and money.


The thing is, doing this is not even technical, and anybody can participate if they wish.  For me, it makes sense to promote services that everybody uses and pays for willingly every month, opposed to try to sell toothpaste and laundry soap every month to keep up sales volume points.


I think that’s enough about me, so let’s hear from you!
