Who is Sally?

Sally Gilson was born in 1958 to Dorothy and Laurie Gilson in Sydney Australia and has a brother, Laurence. They grew up in Sydney until the death of their Mother in 1967, which affected them both greatly. Their beloved home was sold along with their treasured toys and belongings.

Their next journey was to travel to Culburra, not far from Wollongong, which is named by the Aborigines “ windy place”, this is so true since when the wind blows the sand cuts straight through you like a knife.  From there they took a journey to Port Macquarie where Laurie Gilson, their father, bought a boat shed and initially did well but after the sale of the boat shed he turned to drinking heavily leaving Sally and Laurence to roam the streets on the weekend getting kicked out of hotel swimming pools in summer.

Because of their life experiences a book has been written called Influence in Australia by Louise Foster which can be purchased from Amazon.

Times had been hard and financially there were a lot of struggles, Sally got married in February 1982 and bought her first home at the age of 20 and paid the house off by the age of 26. This was through working three jobs and running the home so both herself and her husband Paul could travel the world. This dream evaporated after their divorce where Paul felt he was entitled to all of their assets and Sally was forced to go through the legal system and claimed barely 50% of the estate.

Sally decided to put her money in a flat in Australia which was destroyed by tenants and caused further losses so she then travelled to live with her closest friend in Northern Territory and loved the beautiful countryside and the outback way of life. With the help of her dear friends who knew how much it meant for Sally to live her dream she travelled to England, this was testing since Sally did not have much money although her dreams and ambitions and visualization and belief was strong. Many years later Sally is still in England.

Does Sally have any regrets? No, she has travelled, although not to the extent of her dreams, has great friendships, cats that love her and a great family.  You could say she is very rich in life quality and enjoys herself.

Through many jobs she has learnt a great deal, turned companies around, passed on her skills to others and gained many successes.

In recent years Sally has saved many cats that had been abandoned and now enjoys the love and pleasure these wonderful furry friends give.
