My name is Mark Avery. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia.
I call myself ‘Mr Bashful’ when I speak at Speakers’ Corner. It’s easy for the passers-by to remember, and it’s easy to google. Plus, I want my readers to know that to be happy we don’t need to be dynamic and effervescent, like many of the happiness gurus.
Q. ‘What are your qualifications? Your profession?’
Don’t judge the worth of what I have to say by the qualifications I have or don’t have. Or by my profession. If you want to decide if the ideas presented have merit, evaluate them.
