Hi, my name is Al Borchers & I currently reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I was born in Germany in 1954 & my parents immigrated to the US when I was 6 months old. My father was a Steel Worker & my mother a homemaker. During my adult career, I have done almost everything, ranging from working in the Steel Mills, Construction, Retail, driving a Taxi, and eventually ended up in Sales & Management in the Automobile Industry. Was a General Sales and Finance Manager for a large Automobile Franchise. By the way, I quit school 6 weeks into 10th grade, so guess that would make me a “high school dropout”? However, I do have a tripl3 digit IQ, as most of us do, (not gonna say what range I fall in).
I started building Web Sites in 1999 mostly as a hobby and discovered Online Marketing. This time period was at the “near end” of the big dotcom boom that thrived till about 2008. I was fortunate to be involved with some “Big Pre-Launches” and made some serious money! Started a SafeList Advertising site that lasted from December 2001-June-2014, had up to 4700k+ members, and subsequently started an emailing service, (was no google back then) and Hotmail, Yahoo as well as registered domain names were bouncing cuz they could not handle all that traffic! As I write this am reminiscing about the good ole days!
In 2006 I fell into a great M-F Corporate job with benefits, vacations, etc, and slowly slacked off my online marketing.
Well, got laid off in 2010, So… back to doing what I am truly passionate about and that is Social Media and Marketing Online!
Thanks for taking the time to read this long “about me”.
Currently, am retired, I still build Mobile Websites, WordPress Websites, and am promoting Health & Wellness products, just trying to stay busy as well as earn some extra income. Ask me how I lost 14lbs., have more energy, more clarity, sleeping well & getting into that good R.E.M. sleep. Sleep is a vital part of good health and optimal function during your waking hours.
