“I try to not get ahead of myself,”

“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.”

*Don’t get ahead of yourself. Keep your feet on the ground. Be passionate and respect how relevant you have to remain in your dream business.

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.
