What I’m up to as of 9 May 2017.

My wife Caroline has just given birth to our second son, James. Both are doing well.

As of 1 October 2016 I decided to stop taking on new AdWords clients. I’ve decided to focus on my existing clients and growing their accounts. My thinking is to focus on just a few clients and grow their profits as much as possible rather than spreading myself thin across too many clients.

In late 2016 I bought majority control of solarhotwaterquotes.com.au, a website that makes it easy for Australians to get quotes for solar hot water systems. It has been a steep learning curve, but I’m enjoying the challenge of working on all aspects of a business, not just the AdWords account.
