My name is Michel Maling, and I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful coastal city of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. I am in my fifties now and let me tell you, you are never too old to learn new tricks, even when it comes to technology.
I grew up in Johannesburg, but I am thrilled to be out of the rat race and living in such a laid-back and friendly city. I have lived with my partner for more years than I care to count, and we have a lovely little girl who was born in 2006.
I am a dancing teacher, and I teach Ballet, Modern, Ballroom/Latin, Acro, and Hip Hop. I am passionate about dance and promoting it within South Africa. I really love my profession and it is wonderful to see the children growing within your studio over the years. I hope to be able to continue with my teaching well into my old age. I am also lucky enough to work with two wonderful friends, which makes the work even more fun.
My hobbies in my spare time are hiking, reading, scrapbooking, quilting, knitting, sewing, dancing and watching a good epic movie.
I started studying internet marketing in June 2009, and find it very addictive. A new hobby for me at the time has turned into a small business on the side. I am building my own affiliate marketing business, that will be sustainable and serve me well into my old age. It is a great feeling to be able to help others, which is why I started this website.
Over the years, I have discovered that the only way to make money long term online is to build your own online business. It takes time and patience but is also very rewarding.
I am a strong believer in taking action. Put all that you learn into action, as it is very easy to stay the learner and not the doer.
My motto in life is to live with integrity, be honest, positive and to be kind and helpful to others.
