Hello there!  My name is Alex Mathews and I am the owner of A New Skill.

I created this website to help others and myself to learn new skills that can be used to improve our lives.  I have struggled for years trying to learn how to make life more enjoyable and easier.  I eventually realized that I didn’t need to reinvent the wheel.  And I didn’t need to go through a bunch of bad experiences to learn a lesson.

I could learn from others!  And that’s where this website begins.  I will start by sharing the things that I have learned over the years.  At the same time, I welcome input from you.  Please email me with what you have learned that you wouldn’t mind my sharing on this website.  I will include your first name and the state or country where you reside.

You might notice that I mostly write in a very informal, easy to read format.  I want this website to help as many people as possible, and an easy to read format is the best way to accomplish that.

Comments are turned off for this website.  Years ago I allowed comments and I was overwhelmed with advertisements.  It took way too long to sort through, deleting the adverts, keeping the actual comments.

In no way shape or form am I a professional counselor or therapist so please don’t ask me for advice.  The topics that I write about are my own experiences and what has worked for me.

I wish you all the best!
