I love to play golf with my children. They can almost beat me. That is my goal. I enjoy reading self improvement books as well. I'd rather listen to them to be honest. I hope to someday be able to travel the world with my beautiful wife, once my children are old enough. We also want to spend at least one Nascar Sprint Cup Series season following them to every race in a RV. There are alot of other things I'll do in the mean time as well but that is a brief few I thought of. I also love helping people take control of their lives. As the old saying goes "Help enough people get what they want and you'll have everything you want". Now go work hard and prosper.

So you want to know about me. I will do my best to tell you. I must apologize, right now I have a headache. This makes it a little difficult to stare at the computer screen for too long. But then again "No pain No gain" right?
My story begins 37 almost 38 years ago in a county hospital in Georgia. Macon Georgia to be more exact. It was known as Bibb County Memorial Hospital. It was 6:01 in the morning and good lord it was suddenly very cold, I was all wet and it was too darn bright. All I could do is cry about it. Man that was not fun. I remember it too well.
Na Just Kidding.
I will be 38 in just over two months. I have been married for 10 and a half years. I also have 6 children. Notice I did not say 6 "beautiful" or "wonderful" children. They are all those things to me but you might have a different opinion. I'm not here to give you your opinion.
I have worked both the ugly side of employment and the easy side. I started out as a plumber's helper. Yes I have done those yucky things. At the time I made enough money to serve my needs. I also learned things that now save me money. Mostly all I needed then was gas money and beer. Glad those times are over. I then became a roofer's helper. That job sucked. But again the money paid for my needs and I also learned things that are now saving me money. I roofed my own house last year after a hail storm. :) I spent some time in the US Navy as an equipment operator constructionman. No there was no "haze gray and anchors away" for us. Whew. Again I learned things that today save me some money. By the way, I volunteered for the first Gulf War but they had too many people wanting to go. Oh well. I tried a stint in college going after an Aerospace Engineering degree. Boy I was not cut out for that. I remember one time studying my you know what off and I thought I had it down pat. It was Engineering Statics. High level Math in case you don't know. I felt really good after the test. Then I got my grade. A 62. I was stunned. Needless to say I do not have an Aerospace Engineering degree. Are you bored yet? Ha Ha.
The next episode came when I was in a small town staying with my father while he was working at the prison. I responded to an ad and got a job as a liscensed tankerman. I was now in the Merchant Marines. I was responsible for the loading and off-loading of all types of chemicals. i.e. crude oil, benzene, gasoline, tolulene, etc.etc. Sometimes I even had to wear rubber suits and gas mask because of the danger of the chemicals. It paid really well. My needs had grown by now and luckily so had my pay. The only drawback was the two weeks straight you had to work. Yes I then got 7days off but that just makes it easy to spend that good money easily. The work was hard and the living conditions not the greatest but some of the guys I made friends with were great people.
Now I know you have to be bored by now. My head still hurts. I think I will finish this later.
Ok I'm back,
I'll make this shorter. I finally had enough of the Merchant Marines and landed a job for Soutwestern Bell Mobile Systems. I was a wireless technician. It was a great job. Good money. Very long hours sometimes though. Some of you have me to thank for your cellphones working. I stayed there for 8 years. They changed to Cingular. They actually changed to Southwesteren Bell Wireless then Cingular. They decided to go union and I decided to go bye bye. I've never been a fan of unions. They make it so much easier for the lazy people without rewarding the workers. I was a worker and did not like being stuck because of my seniority. It really steamed me.
Shortly after leaving Cingular I was involved in an auto accident. I awoke from my coma on Sep. 11, 2001. The first memory I had was the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers.
After a few months of rehab I learned how to live again. They say I'll never be the same but I don't remember how I was before so I am the same to me. One thing for sure it gave me a hunger to succeed in life far greater than I had before. It was around this time that I was introduces to Network Marketing and I have never looked back.
This is not back breaking work. It is mentally tough. I've been up to the challenge. I hope you are as well. If you ever want my help please just let me know.
Thanks for reading this long Bio.
Best to you,
