Hi Ann, yes, for me you are a true inspiration to women. In fact, you are one of the very few people (especially a woman) who entered the unknown world of online business all those years ago when on-line was something new and strange. The internet was still in its early stages and on-line was far from our minds. Yet you chose to build your career on this future way of doing business. Back in the day, I for one would never have thought that the day would come when the most efficient and most used way to find and buy what you want, either an item or a service, would be on-line. You deserve high praise indeed Ann.
I am in my early 70's. In 1968, as a junior secretary, at work, the only way to make a photocopy of a document was to actually make a photograph in a dark room, using 3 chemicals then wait for it to dry. Imagine? I spent the next 50 years working as a secretary, a sales rep, having a family, and starting my own little promotions and events company. Looking back, all of this took immense time and work, daily grind, and determination to just make ends meet. It has been a hard life for a single mom to make a living.
Today, this magic world called the internet with online shopping has opened up a whole new way of how the world works, with unlimited possibilities for anyone to start a business and earn a living.
I have recently discovered this magic world through the teachings and sharing of Ann Marot's knowledge. She took me by my hand and showed me how easy it is to build an on-site platform and navigate this new world. I feel like I have entered Aladdin's cave! The possibilities, adventure and, in fact, the highway to today's living, is right there for everyone to enter. Why not you? I did at the age of 72!
Last year, 2 day's into the national Covert lockdown, I was very lucky to meet up with Ann, and began to learn how to put my dream of having my own online business turn into a reality.
These past 11 months have been the most exciting time of my life. With Ann's guidance, I have resurrected an old novel idea I had started in 1989 and have turned it into a reality. It is called Afriweave (a simple hand held weaving method using plastic needles and yarn) and with Ann's help, I hope to reach and sell to the world and "teach the world to weave" .
Ann, thank you for coming into my life and giving me new hope and a future.
With all my respect and love
