He had a straight-talking style. Neither Democrat nor Republican, he disparaged the intelligence of all elites and leaders. His favorite putdown, delivered with a West Texas drawl, was: “Not too smart.” He would get “under the hood” and fix the country, he vowed. The wag who quipped “He’s a self-made man who worships his creator” could have had Perot in mind.

  1. Ross Perot (pronounced Puh-roe), outspoken 60-year-old Texas entrepreneur, is only 5 foot 6 inches tall. In the state known for super big, his net worth, estimated by Forbes Magazine at over $3 billion, represents a fortune vaster than anyone else’s. Perot, a supersalesman, made his first billion (at least on paper) before the age of forty. One might suspect this to be the reason why people look up to him with respect, awe and wonder. However, as with others who have reached fantasy only levels of success, money ceases to be an appropriate yardstick for measuring the myth of Perot.

“I try to not get ahead of myself,” she says. “Sometimes you are influenced by the people around you and they’re pushing you and it’s hard to make every decision a right decision. But I try to have my feet on the ground. It’s been a trip of passion and respect for the client and respect for how relevant you have to keep the brand in a changing world.”

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
