About Me

Hi I’m Jon and welcome to my Blog, this is pretty much my virgin début on everything… From being my first website (well ish, we’ll get to that) to my first “about me” page, so you will have to forgive the initial crap, the long winded brain farts and the pointless posts… Do tell me to shut up.. Like now..
This is me - Jon Desborough
Ok to the point… The main reason behind this blog is show off my initial experiences in lifestyle design and entrepreneurship, through exploring the thoughts and ideas that I have, what’s happening in my life in general, product reviews and general geekiness; hopefully going some way to giving you an idea as to what makes me tick!
Most of this wouldn’t have come about without some serious changes and challenges in my life, some inspirational people, making use of being a perpetual dreamer and deep down just a big kid…

After making the decision to change my working life and how I replace my current income source, I hit the books, the web, and anything else I could get my hands on to help me figure out what my next move was…

My conclusion was rather than make a site similar to existing lifestyle design or money making blogs; that thrive on telling you how to blog, what “the secrets” are, and how to make a successful living online; Was to actually use all of these websites/blogs as a guide. Instead of spinning content (getting down with the kids now!), plagiarising or generally duplicating the work of other people and ending up with just another clone; the content I want to create and publish will be personal, project or business related; along with the best lifestyle design advice from around the web, hopefully proven with quantifiable results… -Ultimately letting you know what works and what doesn’t!

I came up with this approach mainly because, I feel that to start a typical lifestyle design based blog requires a strong character who’s not afraid to put it out there so to speak, historically this isn’t me, as I have always preferred a sense of anonymity, this probably comes from caring what people think and trying to please! – This blog is in some way supposed to help that, and continue to chart my journey of change that started 4 years ago…

Please read “Setting the Scene” to get a better indication of where I have been and at least where I think I’m heading and what’s lead me to this point…
