At 50+ years of age, I’ve been truly challenged and truly blessed. I am first and foremost a student of life. I am an entrepreneur, business owner,financial consultant, business consultant a speaker, and someday a "hope to be a published author." I’ve also experienced life as a salesman, a pastor, a short order cook, a sanitation worker, a welder, fabricator and a millwright. I’ve even been a tour guide at Arizona's Colossal Cave … If it has interested me; I've pursued it to the satisfaction of my desire. There is a profound truth I discovered early, and now without reservation or doubt believe that to live a fully passionate and successful life, one "must" bring value to those whose lives are touched by his own. I’ve also learned there is no greater power that the power of love, and without a rich spiritual life founded in truth, life is dull, unproductive, and without joy or purpose. If you wish, here are a few simple yet powerful thoughts for you; fear is not to be tolerated in one’s mind, and should be evicted the very moment it rears its ugly head! Quite time and personal development are both effective and nessessary for balance and growth. My own amazing journey continues, and I fully expect that at the end of my long day, I will have lived every passion and succeeded in every dream. I will have loved and in turn, received love. I will then enter into the fullness of fellowship with my redeemer and promptly explore the universe! What more could a man desire?
