A Little Bit About Me

Marlene, Dubai

My name is Marlene Challis. I'm a wife and mother and up until about 1994, I knew absolutely nothing about computers or business.

When we first got a computer, I was afraid to touch the keyboard in case I pressed the wrong key and it blew up!

With the guidance of my husband teaching me the basics of getting it turned on and playing some games, I finally found my way around.

Then we got connected to the internet. That was scary trying to work out how the "net" worked. I learnt by pressing buttons and figuring things out as I went along. My two daughters gave me some pointers but apart from that, I taught myself everything I know.

When I mastered getting around the "net", a whole new world opened up. It was exciting being able to find out information about anything you wanted. I started to use the "net" to search for travel specials for our holidays and I booked them online.

I have since shared my passion for travel with the world by building a couple of websites. world-travel-options.com and www.marlystravels.com

I never pay full price for any accommodation or flights. We also own timeshare, which is fantastic. We have owned it for 25 years. (As of 2012).

I use the internet to do other shopping as well. I use eBay plus lots more. I love bargaining in retail shops and markets. There is no need to pay full price for anything these days.

Life certainly does take interesting turns and I am enjoying the ride.

It is very exciting sitting down at my lap top computer anywhere I want. I love it. Did you notice I said my lap top computer? Yes I have a lap top. A few years ago if someone told me I would be doing this today, I would have laughed and said they have rocks in their head but here I am.

If you have knowledge of a particular subject or a passion for something, you can make an income from it online.

I am an ordinary person. There is nothing unique about me except that I decided to do something with my life.

If I can do this, anyone can. I mean anyone! What are you waiting for? Go out and conquer the world.

I use Solo Build It to build my websites, including this one. See what other people say about using it and how it has changed their lives.

Without Sitesells program, I would not have had the technical skill to create a website. If you've ever thought about building a website, but didn't know how to go about it, consider Solo Build It! To find out more about Solo Build It! click here.
