My Story

My town, Broken Hill, is here.

I was born and raised in Broken Hill (above) in far west outback NSW, Australia.

A fantastic part of my early years was my involvement with Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and camping in very interesting locations in the countryside around Broken Hill.

The best camping experiences also involved hiking, and the best hiking experience was the 5 day Milford Track hike over the mountains and into Milford Sound, New Zealand.

I  began playing Australian football and competitive swimming from an early age. In football, I made it to a semi-professional level.

In swimming, I broke through the 60-sec barrier for 50 meters.

I worked as an electrician/mine mechanic for mining companies in Broken Hill and Kambala, Western Australia. The mine in Broken Hill was a mile deep. I did a lot of work helping to install an internal winder chamber which was toward the bottom and two miles out. Sometimes we walked but usually took the “kiddy car” by rail.

I later graduated from two universities and taught English as a foreign and second language in Tokyo and Brisbane.

Between mining towns and university, I was making pies in my father’s business “Larry’s Pie Cottage”, in Port Macquarie.

Why do I want to help people?

While I was teaching I experienced great job satisfaction. In Japan.

I was helping people in their working careers in Japan.

In Brisbane, I was preparing international students for university in Australia.


Since 2017, I’ve been developing my skills as a blogger. There has been so much to learn and have begun tutoring others. There have been periods when I put in more than 80 hours a week, but if you love something you do it with all your worth.

At Wealthy Affiliate, I’ve had fantastic support, and through hard work have come a long way in a relatively short period of time.

Our purpose here.

Here at Garry’s Marketing Site, my goal is to provide you with the best product reviews and tell people about fantastic business opportunities.
