After working for 40 years I decided it was time to slow down and smell the flowers. (Although it is harder to bend over than it used to be…) I’ve struggled with a degenerative muscle disease (SMA) for over 20 years and have endured a few other health challenges. But in spite of that I started and ran four companies, developed a franchise for our training company, wrote two books and a number of courses on sales, leadership and business transition, and sold the training business. All while raising a family and volunteering in the community. I enjoy writing so this blog is my current outlet.
