Travel, Photography, Blues Concerts
Love to spend time on the computer, and now my iPhone. Love that my job allows me to travel around the country and see new sites.
Wow. None jump out at me. I read more magazines than books now. Mostly photography magazines.

Follow Me On
Well, let's follow a tried and true format that many sales people use when breaking the ice with those they come in contact with. It should cover all the bases. It's called FORM. That stands for family, occupation, recreation, and money.
Born in Little Rock, Arkansas to Air Force parents, so we traveled around a lot. Early years in Okinawa, then on to South Carolina, New Hampshire, then finally back in Arkansas.
I attended the University of Arkansas on a music scholarship, and my claim to fame there was being the Drum Major for the Marching Razorback Band for 4 years in the late 70's. Yeah....I'm getting old. And yeah that was me strutting down the field when we clobbered OU in the Orange Bowl 31-3.
Met my lovely wife Robin, and we continued the travel experience. Gypsies I guess.
Have a wonderful son, Bobby, his wife Sarah, and three wonderful grandkids, Trevor, Brendan, and Bailey. They consume me and I love it.
Robin and I have traveled coast to coast and parts abroad singing and performing. In fact you could say we are professional musicians since we made our living doing just that for over 15 years. Also played with a group coined the Uncivil Servants, a blues band, for almost 7 years.
Oh wait.....I'm getting into Occupation now....great transition.
Heard the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none". That could describe me, but I prefer the term Renaissance Man.
Already mentioned musician...
...dude ranch sales
...music store clerk
...web site sales & development
...sales rep for a remanufactured engine company
...city manager (too much politics)
...currently a retail merchandiser (I travel around now and remodel Lowe's stores)
---oh and we can't forget the requisite time spent flipping burgers and sacking groceries back in high school and college for gas money.
See a pattern here? Can anyone say GYPSIE
Okay, what do I do for fun?
Well, of course I love music. Love to play when I can, and really love getting out and seeing live music (always a chance to sit in).
Did I mention travel? My current job let's me travel around the country and get paid. How cool is that?
...and photography. Absolutely eaten up with taking pictures and editing them. Also carries over into making video, but photos can be so powerful. Life in a fraction of a second.
If you're still reading this, I'm glad, because this is where I spill my guts, and share my secret passion and dream. I have a dream for something better for myself and my family, but I've finally gotten it through my thick skull...to have more I must become more, and bring more value to the universe. That's now my journey.
I was bitten by the network marketing bug while still in college. Was invited to an Amway meeting, and after seeing the circles drawn on the board I was smitten. The picture I saw was the opportunity to take a different road. The road most of us are on is the JOB, which I like to refer to as the "Journey Of the Broke".
Did you know that less than 3% of the US population makes more than 100K a year? I know it's not about the money alone, but money gives us choices. As Zig Ziglar likes to say, "money isn't everything, but it's right up there with oxygen".
Sadly, most people work too hard for what little money they get, don't learn how to hang onto any of it, and in the current downturn don't even have the option of a j.o.b.
Most of my adult life I've ventured off of that road, and attempted to travel the "road less traveled". Not gonna bore you with all the dribble about failed companies, and failed promises, and personal failures. Doesn't matter. IT'S MIDNIGHT. Some of you reading this know exactly what I mean.
So I'm starting a new journey....still a JOB, but now it's the "Journey Of the Blessed". I truly am blessed, no matter what my station in life. I have a wonderful family, a great occupation, wonderful opportunities for recreation, and a newfound vehicle for bringing abundance in the form of money into my life.
Ain't life grand.....
