Instructor Biography

Chris Archer, Business Man , Online Entrepeneur

I have made my own way in the world for more than 30 years but started my working life as a Stock Controller in a large engineering company. I followed that up by becoming a Production Controller and then Inventory Control Manager of a multi national toiletries company. The trouble is when I reached management level and became more aware of company politics I realised it wasn't for me and decided to go my own way.

Since then and starting with no clear plan I have done a multitude of things from Street trading, to shop keeping , to running my own wholesale company and many online ventures from ecommerce stores , ebay stores , Amazon selling and affiliate sales , web designing, product creation.

I started my own perfume line but it wasn't until I followed my passion and getting involved with sport that I had any real success. My sports wholesale business was a great success for me.

Having decided to take my focus online my business experience is hugely helpful in understanding behaviour patterns and interpreting human reactions when putting online products and business plans together.

Now I am involved in many online projects and have joint ventured with some top marketers.
