G'day gang :D

I posted an intro after I re-joined the forums. That was after I had originally registered way back when it was really early days (late 1990s)... so long ago now that it's archived in Noah's ark! Not easy for newcomers to find — and why would you want to?

But it's handy for people to know the forums' Admins and Moderators so here's a little about me and my background.

A more detailed profile can be found at my personal business site at http://johncounsel.biz/john/

My network marketing background (it's unusual) can be found at http://johncounsel.net/background

What some other high-profile online professionals think of me and my ideas can be found at http://johncounsel.biz/experts

Here's a sample:

    "John, you rank as one of the best moderators I've ever seen. Thanks for your GREAT work as moderator of I-Sales Digest!"

    Adam Audette, Moderator, LED Digest
    Adam is President and Chief Strategist of AudetteMedia, Inc and one of the world's leading SEO strategists.
    He's been publisher of LED Digest, an old-school discussion list for Internet marketing and SEO, since 1997.

I'm a former teacher (elementary schools, reform schools, special education) and academic (colleges and universities, teaching marketing, advertising, graphic design, copywriting, mass communication, professional practice, as well as teaching in post graduate MBA and Master of Education programs).

I've worked in businesses of all kinds, from one-man to trans-nationals. I've worked in media, ad agencies, small and home-based businesses, manufacturing, retail and service businesses and run more than a dozen businesses of my own. I've been a marketing director, creative director, art director, professional actor, singer, theater director and producer, comedian, play-write and composer. I write childrens' musicals as a hobby. (I have 5 kids, from 41 to 21, and 9 grandchildren, from 19 years to 22 months.) Anyone interested can view a sample here.

Here are recent photos of my "Qute Quartet"... my four youngest grandchildren:

I'm an author of several best-selling business books, a columnist for business journals, a consultant and advisor to government small business agencies, a conference speaker, seminar and workshop leader and broadcaster.

I've been involved in the direct selling industry since 1966, and in network marketing since 1982. I consult to MLM and party plan companies, train their networks and publish books, manuals and articles, online and offline. I'm often referred to as the "Jiminy Cricket of Network Marketing".

So I have a little experience in a whole lot of fields that's given me some rare and valuable insights into what works and what doesn't over the past four-and-a-half decades. I've succeeded and I've failed. Many times (both).

I've been online since mid-1996 and was fortunate to make a lot of very good friends who've since gone on to become high-profile legends and authorities. And we're all still good friends. They include Heidi and Dave Perry, who own this web site.

We share the same principles and values. And we're committed to helping small and home-based business owners — the true entrepreneurs of the world — to avoid mistakes and achieve genuine, lasting success.

I enjoy my role here as Moderator, apart from chasing off forum spammers and other pests... they take up time I could use more productively to contribute to the discussions. As you've already found, or are learning, this is a vibrant community with a lot of very positive, experienced, creative people ready and willing to share their ideas, know-how and experience.

I look forward to working together for a long time to come. :D

Some of the information above is out of date, but it's tricky to update the post because of limits on link numbers, even for global moderators.

If you're seriously interested, you can view more recent updates here: http://beginnersguide2forummarketing.com/updates/

You can also learn more about me, my professional credentials and experience, and what some of my international peers think of me and my ideas here…
