One of the mobile Telephone Business's I contracted to was about to go out of business, so I seized the opportunity for a shop front.
Originally taking over the business and renaming it "Digifone" and selling mobile telephone's and audio, I branched out into photocopiers, fax machines and office equipment.
As technology progressed the natural order was to start selling computers.
Within 2 years the technology had come so far that the country town I was living in lacked a serious internet provider - the speeds and reliability were awful.
So I started a small internet service.
I then added an internet cafe - the first of its type in the town
Over time the business grew - and we had 3 separate office locations on the Sunshine Coast.
We sold and serviced mobile telephones, faxes, computers, laptops, photocopiers, car audio / radio / CB / UHF, alarms for home and car.
The business grew to a stage where we had to make a choice to sell the office equipment or to move to computers and internet.
We sold off the other 2 locations and pushed forward into the computer and internet industry. and renamed the business OzWide. - its still running today.
With a background and hobby in electronics, I ventured into a business of my own.
Selling, Servicing and Installing, car/home audio, mobile telephones and installation for the booming telephone industry.
Servicing and Installation of all electrical equipment in homes and cars.
Manufacture of custom car parts to fit the equipment into the vehicles ( fiberglass and wood ).
Audio Specialist and Car Audio Sound Off Judge.
Knowledge of - All car audio (top and bottom end market), CB radio, UHF Radio, Marine Radio, Incar Telephones (analogue and digital) and all brands.
This was a pretty straight forward job working for a large company.
My first 6 months here was as a delivery driver then an opening appeared as a machine operator, but progressed up the chain to floor manager.
During the down times I was maintaining / servicing the machinery.
I moved to Gympie.
Here I ran the pastry side of the bakery for the first 12 months, then was promoted to night manager and over saw the pastry, bread and cook off (oven) sections.
I saw Expo 88 as a chance to further my knowledge of pastry cooking and to experience something new.
I was one of 3 staff employed from Australia of a kitchen staff of 44. - an awesome experience.
First Job fresh out of College - We specialized in European cakes and pastries
Grades 3 to 7
