Hi, I’mLes Blytheand I’d like to tell you a little more about myself so you get to know me better.
- Autor, publisher, marketers
I’m a Kindle published author, researcher, Internet Marketer, software publisher & serial entrepreneur.
The purpose of lesblythe.com is to freely share information and strategies that I discover in my work online. I aim to help those who refuse to settle for the ordinary and are prepared to strive for a fuller more fulfilling life. Those who believe that just about anything is achievable with the right information and a will to succeed.
Whether success is defined by achieving financial goals, lifestyle choices (or a combination of both as in my case) I believe that “success” is available to anyone prepared to take control of their own destiny and put in the effort required to change an undesirable situation! In other words, we are all in control of the path our lives take and have the ability to achieve our personal and lifestyle goals through our own positive and decisive action.
I am originally from the UK - Scotland in fact and was educated in Dundee at the Morgan Academy.
I left Dundee and moved to England at the age of 17 as job prospects in Scotland were pretty bleak at the time. I worked 4 years as a management trainee for a major chemical company and during this time continued my education through a part-time degree.
I've had various jobs, mainly in sales and count myself lucky to have worked for some major corporates including as IBM, Xerox, Esselte and Fujitsu. The experience I gained whilst working for these companies proved invaluable when I set out to take control of my own destiny and work for myself.
I owned my own IT business for 10 years and since that time have always been "self-employed".
If you want to see more of my online work and my positioning in Google, just "Google" Les Blythe.
On a more personal note, I've been fishing since I was about 4 years old and really enjoy the sport when I get a chance. I got into fly fishing over 20 years ago and was a UK Trout Master winner in 1996 - still got the badge!
My other interests are walking, my BMW 1150 GS motorbike (see pic.) and of course socializing with friends.
I came to South Africa from the UK on a week’s holiday in 2002 and made the decision to stay in this beautiful country. I’m now a permanent resident and married to a South African with two beautiful children. I occasionally return to the UK to visit close friends and family but have no plans to return there on a more permanent basis.
A huge lifestyle change but as I say, we are all in control of the path our lives take.
