Let me start by giving you a bit of a background about who I am and what I do. I’m Dhireshan Gadiagellan, (everyone calls me Dee nowadays) and that’s my wifey Vish. I’m an Electronic Engineer, Software Engineer, Blogger, Website Owner and Robotics Integrator living in London, UK.
I have been involved in the pharmaceutical robotics industry for the last 9 years or so. (You can check out my Linkedin profile if you want to know a little more.)
I’ve mostly done that work online with the odd in-office contract engagement. I run my own integration company (Gadgitech Ltd) with both online and tangible projects. Over the better part of the last decade, I’ve also been playing around with other forms of online income generation and work facilitation, both as a Client and as a Contractor. The success of both my online and offline endeavours has allowed me to take a break and pursue my interest in robotics and research by studying towards a PhD in Neural Repair and Robotics. You can see my Kings College profile here and here. Enough about me…
So here is where this blog comes in to play. I would like to share my experiences and hopefully guide you in this new age of working i.e. Online. I don’t have any magical solution that is going to make you an overnight millionaire and I don’t have a 4 hour work week plan for you. What I do have is a lot of experience of what works and what doesn’t in the working online world and would love to share what I’ve learned over the past decade or so with you. I will try to teach the skills and the know-how that every business or contractor that is working online should have. I’ll also be covering topics relating outsourcing and delegating work online as I have done for the past few years. On occasion, I’ll throw in the odd blogging tip too.
This blog is really not targeted at the affiliate heavy passive income guru, or the SEO marketing expert, but more so at the regular hard working individual like you and I. Perhaps you are a one man band, a contractor or a business that has more work than it can handle and needs to expand to an online workforce. If this sounds familiar then this blog is for you. I will expose you to tools, tips and experiences both from the perspective of a Client/Business and that of a Contractor in the hope that you can avoid making the same mistakes I did and become as successful (or even more successful) than me.
I will always be open and honest with you and answer as many questions as I can possibly fit in amidst my studies, running my company and the other projects I am involved with currently. So bear with me, I’ll try my best.
So a very warm welcome and thanks for popping by. I aim to generate a new article every week or so. If you would like to keep updated, check in here to see what’s new or simply subscribe below and I will drop you a note when I have some new content for you. I promise I’ll keep the emails thin :-).
While I’m here I thought I’d give you a quick overview of the site..
I have broken it down into various areas some of which will be updated more frequently than others.
In the blog section, you will find my thoughts, views and experiences laid bare for you to absorb. I am very open to constructive criticism and feedback so please drop me a note via email or via a post comment and I’ll take on board your views.
In this section I aim to provide a list of all the tools and resources that I currently use. Some of these are affiliate links where I make a small commission if you choose to use them. This does not cost you any extra and you may even save money in some cases. You can type addresses directly if you prefer not to use my affiliate link.
Sometimes the tools that would be really helpful are not always available or can be very costly. Therefore, I have developed a number of tools that you can use for free. My aim is to try and keep every tool that I develop either free or as cheap as possible so that everyone can benefit.
For those who want to ‘try-before-u-buy’ this section is for you. I will aim to use some of the more popular pay-for services and present my findings. Some in the form of video overviews, others in a picture summary.
In either case, it will give you a good overview of what you are in for and how it works without spending a cent.
Instead of you trolling through various search engines to find websites that offer or facilitate online work, I have summarised them for you and laid it out quite simply. I try to have this updated regularly so check back every now and then to see if there is anything new. The most recent article is at the top of the page so it should be fairly easy to check for recent updates. You probably won’t find any affiliate links here. It’s just my gift to you.
Over time, I will add more sections to these lists to make it a bit more specific and easier to navigate. e.g a section defining all websites offering affiliate programs.
