Hi and Welcome!!

Who am I?

My name is Nick Everest and I am a 60-something Brit living and working in Sheffield – the Home of Stainless Steel.  How much of that is up for change – who knows?

I was born in Leith, Scotland in 1958; brought up and schooled in the Isle of Wight; trained in Southampton and have since lived in Yorkshire (twice), Kashmir, Uganda (twice), Snowdonia, Sudan, Sumatra, Malaysia, Swansea (twice), Kent, Herefordshire, Wiltshire and London – not necessarily in that precise order!

So, what have I done in my life?

I have a background as a Mechanical Engineer, initially training as an Engineer Officer in the UK Merchant Navy before selling mechanical sealing solutions for rotating machinery and then moving on to building and refurbishing Hydro-Electric Power Stations and large scale water control systems. Much of my working life has been spent overseas but I have also found the time to work in the UK in areas as diverse as tourism, healthcare and even an Internet Helpdesk call centre. I have also run my own businesses in Group Travel, Direct Sales & Marketing and Photography.

And what are my interests?

I am currently most interested in Digital Marketing and Network Marketing and I also help run a family Photo Library business.

Outside of those business related interests I have at various times enjoyed:

  • Sailing
  • Playing Rugby
  • Travelling
    • The world
    • Europe
    • UK
  • Driving
  • Motorcycling
  • Car and bike maintenance
  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Reading
  • Photography
  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • DIY
  • Spreadsheets!!  Yes, boring I know, but fascinating!!

How about Family?

In between all these activities I found the time to go through 3 marriages and produce 3 children – 2 girls and a boy.

Three marriages!! Maybe that’s why I need to be building my online businesses? It’s a really good job that I enjoy it so much.

Gorgeous Matching Smiles


My older daughter and number one child still lives in her childhood home county, the Isle of Wight.

She and her husband have their own manufacturing business, but have also found the time and energy to produce SIX beautiful children of their own.

If they don’t find out soon what has been causing it she could end up rivalling her maternal grandmother who had 14!














One of my daughters lives with me and is just starting out as a Dental Nurse. The older 2 are both in their 30s and have families of their own.



If you are reading this blog right at it’s inception (September 2016) you may find it a little bland in presentation! I make no apologies for this because it’s initial purpose is to record my Internet Marketing progress under my chosen mentor. Since the course I am following under his guidance is designed to be suitable even for absolute beginners who barely know how to switch on their computers I have decided that I will start completely afresh and follow my mentor’s advice to the letter without preconception in order that I can accurately portray what to expect for any of my readers who is considering a similar course of action.

So if you like loads of links, innumerable images, various videos and interesting interactivity – well you will just have to keep coming back and checking my progress, won’t you!!

Comments are extremely welcome from the outset but kindly note that ALL will be moderated. If you have a website of your own please include a link – this makes it far more likely that your comment will be published.  As will using an email address that bears some tangible relationship to your real name!

Would be spammers and speculative link-back seekers beware – you WILL be wasting your time and efforts contacting this blogger – so please don’t bother.
