Gail is no smarter than you, no more clever, no more computer savvy – but what Gail is, she shares with you. Gail is visionary, she sees what others don’t. She understands that to achieve at the very least you have to try. The success that Gail has is no fluke, she is not charmed, or uncannily lucky. Gail works hard to succeed and she wants to share this success with you.
Gail was born in Dunedin – the 2nd of 6 children. Not one for traditional learning, Gail went to school to be told time and time again that she was ‘dumb’ and that she wouldn’t amount to anything much (she tells me now that she would love to do a little Porsche wheel spin on a certain teachers lawn!). Rather than sitting back, agreeing and selling out for the life of a victim – Gail got motivated.
Over the years Gail, along with her husband Gary, have been involved in a number of start up businesses. From chimney sweeping to perfume importation, coffee sales and machine installation to sauna sales (that was quite the diversion!) – where there has been a niche Gail has given it a go. Some businesses flourished and were sold for quite a profit, some didn’t – but for each an opportunity to learn and hone those entrepreneurial skills.
Gail and Gary’s first real foray into technology was in 1991 with Computers and Parts Unlimited (CPU). Gail needed a new family computer, annoyed with the amount of tech speak and the lack of genuine customer service offered by local stores, Gail did just what you would expect her to do (once you get to know her, this will not surprise you at all!) she started her own store. Crowding first the kitchen table, then barrelling through to the lounge, then the garage and still growing, Gail and Gary opened their first commercial premises in Hamilton in 1994. Eventually employing 45 across 5 branches; working across all aspects of computer sales, after care, repair and second hand sales – Gail had more than proven that she wasn’t ‘dumb’.
After selling and giving up the 9am to 5pm grind (or in Gail’s case 7am to 7pm!) – Gail logged online and into her new future. Meeting Brett MacFall, co-founder of the World Internet Summit, was the catalyst that launched Gail’s online success story. Brett became Gail’s mentor and Gail became Brett’s star pupil.
Working with Brett opened Gail’s eyes to the potential that was not only for her, but that was possible for anyone who is prepared to commit some time and passion. Gail quickly noticed that there was a place for a hands on trainer. Someone who would not only help fill notepads with pages of notes – but for someone that would take the time to work with students on their actual websites. Listening to their sometimes frustrations, their successes, helping out and adding valuable insight to help students outrank and outsell others. Adding credibility to Gail’s tutelage is the fact that Gail is practising what she is preaching, Gail is first and foremost an Internet Marketer – making her living from her 100’s of websites.
This is now Gail’s passion – guiding, motivating and mentoring her students. Gail has come full circle – from being the student who was told she would never achieve to now being the teacher who will do all she can so that you do achieve.
Remember – you are capable of so much more than you think you are.
Gail is available to speak at your event. Please contact her, she will be pleased to help and assist.

Hamilton , Thursday, June 19th 2008
Red convertible-driving entrepreneurial Gran now busier than ever, with 11 African children, a booming ‘online’ business plus a new inspirational event where she shares her online business ‘secrets’ and encourages others to embrace the ‘online’ life
When Gail and Gary Bottomley sold their multi million dollar computer business a few years ago, Gail thought it would be a time to sit back, enjoy her kids, wait for the grandkids to arrive and enjoy trips in her red convertible, but then she caught the bug – the online (Internet) business bug and started another career as an online entrepreneur, and seminar presenter.
Gail runs her online business from home and has it structured so that the business makes money while she sleeps. She has customers all over the world and a six figure online income that allows her to travel widely, enjoy her grandchildren and support 11 children from Malawi , soon to expand to 50!
Gail’s online business success is largely due to Australian Internet Marketing expert Brett McFall, author of the international best seller How to Make money while you sleep, (Wrightbooks) and founder of the World Internet Summits.
Gail attended one of Brett’s Sydney Internet Summit’s and became one of his star New Zealand success stories.
“It just goes to show, that age and lack of online experience are no barrier to starting a business on the Internet whether selling information or products. Gail followed my proven seven-step system and has never looked back; funny thing is, she didn’t need the money, but she loved the idea and it helps her help others, like the African ( Malawi ) kids,” Brett said.
Brett was so impressed by Gail’s online success and natural gifts as a presenter that he encouraged her to conduct her own seminar, How to make Money while you sleep! A 7 step plan for starting your own profitable online business.
Her first exciting foray is in Hamilton on Saturday, June 28 th .
As Gail says, “I will be showing others that life doesn’t stop at retirement and that whatever your age, there are opportunities before your eyes all the time; all you have to do is open your eyes and mind to them.”
