Instagram Influencer Spotlight On: John Long @johnlonh899

1) Tell us a little about yourself. What are you doing now and where do you come from?

I was born in 1961 in Ireland , and have lived my whole life here. I began full time workin in 1982 for a German company that made Printed Circuit Boards PCBs. These we for anything from car components, eg Volvo ABS systems to computer monitors for IBM.
I got good experience as I had to travel with de sales team in a technical capacity. This factory closed in 1998, and a fried of mine offered me a job in Car Sales selling New Hyundais & Isuzu Trucks n jeeps plus and a range of secondhand cars, vans & jeeps. I spent 10 years at this. The last 4 also included New & used cars & commercial vehicles. I finished in 2008, mainly due to the downturn in de economy in Ireland. I then did odd maintenance jobs for friends etc, until 2014 I became self employed in Garden & House Maintenance. I’m still workin at this. Due to a period of I’ll health I’ve had a bit of time to think about making money in an alternative way. This is why I’ve decided to try influencing.
