Greg Noland – Business Survivor – Marketer – Coach
Hi, I’m Greg Noland an entrepreneur, internet marketer, copywriter, coach and the founder of The Bum Gun Company.
Here’s a little about me:
I was born in north London, before moving to Harrogate in North Yorkshire at 8 years old when my parents divorced. I quickly realised I was not going to achieve much in life unless I went out and got it for myself. This is when I found a passion for entrepreneurialism, buying gop-stoppers and dinosaur eggs in bulk at the weekends and then selling them as singles at school. In the evenings and weekends, my businesses included valeting cars, cutting lawns, and trimming hedges. I also had a morning paper round before school, and delivered two local free newspapers during the week. At 11 years old I started repairing and modifying BMX bikes for kids in my neighbourhood. By 12 years old I was training and employing 4 kids who lived nearby.
This was about the same time I started learning karate and bought my first computer, an Atari 600XL with my business proceeds. I knew then computers were the future. But after trying to teach myself programming I realized this side of computers wasn’t for me.

For the rest of my teenage years I looked into various business ventures including Amway, Kirby vacuum cleaners and many other MLM type businesses. Although I made money on certain businesses nothing really stoked a fire of passion.
Flip forward to 1995 I setup my first website providing sporting information. This was my first taste of internet marketing, and although that idea didn’t take off, I had got my feet wet in website design, online advertising and marketing. You could say I was hooked.
Napoleon Hill Starts My Amazing Journey
This was about the time I stumbled across an old book in a second hand shop called ‘Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion’ by Napoleon Hill. This was the book which was to change my life. This was the book that started my voracious appetite to read any business books I could find. This journey has led me to discover the likes of Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, Dan Kennedy and on to my copywriting favourites; David Ogilvy, Gary Halbert and Clayton Makepeace. There are many more mentors I am indebted to, but if you read everything about these few greats, you’ll be well on your way to improving your life immensely.
I love to read, and probably consume at least one hundred books per year on anything that can improve the quality of my life, on topics such as: self-help, biographies, business, marketing, psychology, and health & fitness. I believe the best investment you can make is in yourself.

You can build a lifestyle business of your own as long as you have the right information, motivation and guidance. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I have spent my life learning as much as I can in the business and marketing world and implementing my knowledge to give myself a life most only dream of.

The Bum Gun Company
If you are wondering what my connection to The Bum Gun Company is all about, I will explain. I feel extremely blessed for the life that I live, so when I can I try to give as much back to society as I can.
The reason I started The Bum Gun bidet Sprayer Company is because when I discovered the bum gun on a trip to Thailand in 1991 I knew this was an invention that western countries needed to find out about.
At that time I was busy with other business ventures, but I never forgot this amazing little hand held sprayer which sits conveniently next to your toilet. When the opportunity arose in 2010, I made the decision to start the company because I feel the bum gun will shape the bathroom habits of the western world forever.
I knew this simple device had the ability to improve people’s lives, while massively helping our environment. Let’s face it, we all use the toilet, multiple times per day, so why not make this time as pleasant as possible. Most people care about their appearance so much so that they will pay a hefty portion of their income on health and beauty products, as well as the best clothes and accessories on the market. But then, in my opinion, put up with being half clean throughout the day, after using toilet paper.
Admittedly, there are many people who say it’s a myth that our planet is being destroyed, and that global warming is a natural cycle. However, while some of the changes in our planet might be down to cycles in our planet, destroying thousands of acres of forest every year to produce toilet roll seems madness to me.
The last thing I would like to say on The Bum Gun is that no one returns to toilet paper after discovering the benefits of this device. Yes, that’s right. No one! That is quite profound. And there is good reason for that. So what are you going to do? Are you going to give The Bum Gun a trial run or sit there are make do with toilet paper?
