Hello. I’m Keith Purkiss
I have lived near Whitehaven in the UK since I was at school, which is close to the English Lake District where the photo in my blog header was taken
(It’s of Ennerdale Water)
I have been an entrepreneur – building and running my own businesses – since 1980.
My first business – designing, manufacturing, and distributing electronic add-ons for computers won an award in 1982.
I have also been a computer programmer, writing machine code games for the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum etc.
In 1999 I began my online business from my own website. In the same year, I commenced trading on eBay and the following year on Amazon. I have also had stores on Freeserve Marketplace and Ishop.
My website took off as I began to dominate Google for my niche and went on to sales in 7 figures.
This business became Accessories Warehouse Ltd which later took over a printing and stationery business called Printpoint.
I am co-owner of the ‘Website Wealth Wizards’ site where we help each other succeed with our online businesses.
