Who is Doug
My name is Doug Paulson and I am the creator / owner of Responsive Blogging.
I live in Northern Alberta Canada with my wife of 23 years, my son, my daughter and my little dog Rosie!
I’m self employed and work online running my businesses from my computer, wherever that may be each day.
I’m also a certified personal trainer and amateur bodybuilder who trains regularly from my home gym and blogs about being a aging bodybuilder at my other blog BodybuildingAfter55.
So as you can see, I’m a computer nerd that is a firm believer in working online.
Having been addicted to computers since the days of the PC-AT compatible computers where first released.
Because I can still remember the day I bought a 286 – 12mhz PC-AT computer. At that time, it was the most powerful personal computer you could buy. That was BEFORE the days the public could get on the internet.
I guess my age is really showing now!
Have things ever changed.
Still today, computers are a passion to me. Perhaps it has to do my desire to continue learning.
But believe me, I am no computer genius, just a guy that is really into technology.
My work life started in 1978. For the first 18 years I worked for many different companies doing a wide variety of things. Never really finding my niche in life.
In the mid 1980’s I got involved in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) manufacturing. Basically robotic machinery that manufactures goods.
I learned every aspect of them from operating, calibrating, CAD/CAM, programming, to repairing. For the majority of my working years these machines where a part of my life.
For the last 23 years, I have personally started and owned 5 different companies. All of these companies involved computers in one way or the other.
Once again my passion for technology
Through all my experiences I gained a lot of knowledge about starting and managing businesses. But once again, I still hadn’t really found what I was looking for.
Sure I was making more money with having my own business, but didn’t have the free time I wanted to spend with my family. I also had a desire to be able to travel and see some of the world.
But I quickly learned that those 2 things don’t necessarily work well together.
Having a traditional business kept me tied down and caused lots of stress in my life.
Not at all fun!
I knew that there had to be a better way to earn a living for my family.
Having always wanted to work from my laptop, consequently I decided to try making a living working online.
My Digital Journey
So the decision was made to start a online business. But doing what?
This was a tough one for me. My wife had always wanted to import products for sale from her home country of Thailand.
So in 2016 my wife and I started an e-commerce store drop shipping products from Thailand called KlassicShop. The online part of the company was all totally new to me. Even though computers where my hobby, I had never done business online before. It was hard and extremely frustrating at times.
It sure would have been nice to have somebody guide me.
Shortly after getting the e-commerce store up and running good, then I happened upon blogging. Instantly becoming intrigued. As a result, the decision was made.
I want to become a Blogger!
That’s how the idea for this blog was born. Finally I believe that I have found my niche in life. Helping others to succeed – people just like you.
Blogging allows you to help others unlike anything else. And if by chance friendships are made in the process, it is that much more rewarding.
Anyone Can Do This
If I can do this, anyone can. Because I am just a average guy from a average working class family.
One thing I have learned over the years is to succeed, you need to have a plan, work hard at it and not give up.
This is the only way to gain the financial success you are wanting.
So How Do We This
We work together here step-by-step.
I am here to help you succeed with your Digital Journey.
That’s it for now my friends! Happy Blogging!
