Who Is Dylan Cooper
Hello and welcome! I am the founder of The Digital Gold Rush site, which I created to help people take advantage of some of the best online opportunities out there today in the exploding worldwide digital economy.
Whether you wish to leave the 9-5 rat race and go full time living on your own terms or if you just want to create an alternative income in your spare time, there are many options available these days in the digital world, only requiring you to have a computer and an internet connection.
My goal through this site, is to share some of these opportunities with you and to assist you and be there with you along your journey. I hope we will speak soon but in the meantime, just a little about me..
I grew up on the Isle of Wight, an Island off the south coast of England, famous amongst other things for its sailing scene and multi-coloured sands!
Being a nice part of the world and surrounded by water and beautiful countryside, I had quite a lot of fun there growing up with my friends, messing around with boats, going on bike rides, hanging around at the beach and annoying my older sister! Above is a photo I took recently showing the little beach, 5 minutes from the house where I grew up.
At age 18, I left the Island in search of fun and excitement. This took me to university in London where I learned a lot more, both in and out of the classroom.
At age 22, I decided to see a bit more of the world, spending over a year travelling and working in Australia and also spending time in Dubai, Bali, New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii and LA before returning to the UK to settle into the world of work.
The experiences I had in other parts of the world fuelled a passion and desire for travel that has never left me. My favourite things being a snowy mountain peak or a crashing surfing wave.
I love to ski. For me, the beauty of the mountains, hurtling downhill on a couple of planks and ending with a great meal and some drinks in a cuckoo-clock village, is my idea of bliss. The above picture is one I took of an impressive cloud inversion in Chamonix with the Aiguille du Midi in the background and Mont Blanc just out of shot to the right.
When I had returned from my travels at age 24, I found a job in the IT industry, supplying high-end computer equipment and services to companies. Two decades on, I am still in the industry. I enjoy my day job. I like the people I work with and the clients, suppliers and business partners that I meet.
However, I realised that I also wanted something for myself. Something that I could build part time and call my own and something that would be there, no matter what happened in the computer industry. That’s when I started to look at other income options where I could use the internet to help me find customers and provide a flow of money, no matter what I was doing-working my day job, on holiday or even sleeping!
I enjoy time with family and friends and I think it is important not to spend all your life working. Money and security are important, sure, but I also believe that freedom and choices are important in life too.
Most people believe that it is very difficult to have enough money to feel secure and enjoy a lot of freedom at the same time. The problem is that in order to make the money, you have to work many hours and this leaves you with little time to do what you really want to do. There is an old saying that most people either have money and no time or they have the time and no money.
It doesn’t have to be this way…
I have learned that there are ways to build an income in such a way as to provide both time and money, to do the things you really want to do with your life. You know, like spending quality time with your family, travelling where you want, when you want and being able to wake up in the morning and decide what you would like to do with that day, rather than being told what you will do for 8 hours or more.
If you are anything like me and would like to learn how to start on a new and exciting journey like this, then explore this website and the links I have provided. Don’t forget to navigate to the “Start Here” tab, where you have instant access to a free video series, showing how you can launch recession proof income streams from scratch, no prior knowledge or special skills necessary. I expect you will be glad you did…
I now live in Teddington on the outskirts of South-West London. The area allows me to stay connected to the water. This time it is the Thames meandering through the small town with its pleasant riverside parks, cafe’s and restaurants, just before the point it becomes the tidal Thames, on its way through London and out to meet the sea.
