I was unemployed for several years in Germany and began to doubt myself and my abilities? I felt like a failure and the chances of getting a decent job where towards "Zero"

Then I got a batch of compost worms and they multiplied and multiplied and multiplied! I have sold probably millions of worms by now but never had to buy a single worm apart from the 1st batch I got more than 15 years ago.

My worm business has paid:

  • for my car, 
  • my bond, 
  • my living expenses and 
  • yes even some overseas trips to visit friends and family from time to time.


I am certainly no genius and if I could make it happen, you can make it happen!
