Welcome to My Website

Thank you for visiting.

Since I write about my experiences, I figure it would be a good idea to give you an idea of who I am. I am a high school business teacher by trade. I taught typing and shorthand. I taught a course about how to operate business machines that no longer exist!

I am a Baby Boomer. I was born in the last century. It was the twentieth century after all; we are not talking about the Stone Age!

Somewhere along the way, I discovered that I really loved working with adults. I migrated to teaching business school and community college. I loved working with women and empowering them with marketable skills, so they could support themselves and their families.

If you came into the “teachers room”, you would find the teachers attempting to figure out how we could support ourselves and our families.  I joined the network marketing industry to make extra money for my family. I discovered a self-development program with a compensation plan attached to it. I met my favorite mentor, Jim Rohn. I played his cassettes (I already told you I was old!) so much that I wore them out. He completely changed my life. I am telling you this part of the story, so that you will understand any references I make to network marketing more fully.
I even produced a generic DVD on the industry that was made available to anyone attending one  of my generic workshops on the industry . I no longer recruit, market, or train for any company. Training is still my first love, but I am concentrating on writing and painting. Eventually, my writings will be available on this site. Perhaps, some of my art work will be available. Perhaps, I will offer more workshops.
This site, like me, is a work in progress.
Stay tuned.
What I do know is that in order for things to change, YOU have to change.
Here’s the oldest published picture of me that I could find. It’s a picture of me “back in the day” in a company magazine.  The heading was Teacher Learns To Never Say “Never”. Yes, that IS my hair! What can I say? I’m willing it to post it, so I do have a sense of humor!
As I look back, I find this whole journey fascinating. I always knew I wanted to travel, but I could not have predicted the way in which I would do so much traveling.

For someone who never left New England until the age of 20, I have earned a lot of incentive trips. Those trips have been all over the United States including the Hawaiian islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island! I have earned trips to Monaco, Tahiti, Bermuda, St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Antigua, Grenada, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Croatia, and Spain. You get the idea.

If you are still reading, my motivation for this page has been to give you some background as to where I’ve been and where I’m going. I started writing when I was in high school. I never painted until I was retired and discovered I loved it.

My Favorite Quote:

“It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.” – Henry David Thoreau

Love, Peace, and Joy,
