Martin is a writer, a coach and a public speaker.

He helps businesses apply psychology to solve recruitment, management and development problems.

He helps coaches use personality psychology.

He helps individuals figure out the big questions in life – who am I?

In 2001 he moved online and has been pioneering there ever since.

With PeopleMaps he brought psychology and technology together, to help people better understand themselves and others.

He is consumed by what makes people think and strives for freedom.

Moving online provided Martin with a large part of that freedom as it made him geographically independent. Martin can work from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.

Designing and Living the life you really want

Martin believes he is truly lucky to work from home with his wife Julie and son Ruaridh. He also gets to spend three months a year in Spain and France with them on exciting adventures.

His current ultimate dream is to build an eco house and live off grid and in the sun.

When he isn’t working, or hanging out with my family he teaches Wing Chun Kung Fu (and has taught Tai Chi, Chi Kung and even Cuban Salsa dancing in the past) and he is fair-weather runner and occasional cyclist.

He has had a life long fascination with what makes people tick and has turned that into helping people figure out who they are and what the hell they should be doing with their lives.

He likes to see people rediscover their mojo! For some that means helping them with their career, for others it’s about how to develop their own online business.

Ultimately he wants to see you design a lifestyle that is compatible with your personality.
