I’m an entrepreneur, Sports fanatic, and love to travel. I’m passionate about living entrepreneurially – empowering and supporting others to do the work they want to do in order to live the life they want to live. I’ve spent the past few years living the “new American dream”. I left behind climbing the corporate ladder,holding out for that gold watch and retirement plan. Now I am paving my own road, learning new things, living life fully, and taking on new challenges each and everyday.
I started my business coaching career over 20 years ago with a Government contractor Simulation Systems Company, then joined a Fortune 100 company and I loved what I did. I had a few hiccups along the way, but I always felt drawn to coaching, training and being a better partner in my industry.
I started in this industry with a lot to build on. There is a 97% failure rate in the on-line marketing industry and I refuse to be a statistic. I stumbled my way through the whole “Shinny Object Syndrome” and unfortunately wasted a good chunk of money. I needed a system or a blueprint for success. Today I am working with current and future entrepreneurs looking to build their businesses and move on to “Life 2.0”. I have helped folks develop and build their brand and use social media strategies to grow their business.
I am a marketer, a caufeeholic, an avid reader and now a blogger. Want to know more about me? Read on! For 32 years I was in corporate america. I left all of that behind in August 2013.
I am also an Air Force brat and have settled in the Washington D.C. area. I love this area of the country. There are so many things to do and see here in the DMV (D.C, Maryland, Virginia). It is the pulse of the nation. I also have to admit, that I do miss all of the traveling! Growing up as a military dependent in the 60’s and 70’s was very exciting. I was able to go places and see things that people only dream of doing and seeing.
It does have it’s downside though. Growing up on military instillation’s is an isolating existence, especially if you lived on base. During the 60’s and 70’s the US was going through the civil rights movement. It was a volatile time in the US .Living over seas on base we were only concerned with rank. What rank was your father. Was he a Commissioned Officer or a Non commissioned officer. That is the only distinction folks made about each other for the most part. Your father’s name and rank was on the outside of your house like a house number. A lot of the servicemen married foreign women while serving in foreign countries. So we were exposed to a lot of nationalities right on base and whatever country we happen to be living in, we were exposed to that as well.
As an adult, the most difficult thing to this day is being asked “Where are you from?” To which I ask, do you mean where i was born? or Where I went to school? or Maybe where I currently live. See. that question has many answers. I went to several schools in different countries on 3 different continents. So I decided that there had to be other Baby Boomers, Military Brats, Adult Third Culture Kids out here looking for an opportunity to receive residual income and improve their circumstances while taking care of business at home. Whether that is spending more time with the family, spending more time working on your passion, travel or whatever it is. Running an online business is the answer. Maybe you are a veteran who is looking for a way to make an income after serving.
So now on the lighter side – What are my hobbies – Riding my Harley is my favorite pastime. Reading is also a big love of mine. I read pretty mostly self improvement books. I enjoy Jim Rhon, Anthony Robbins, Tim Ferris to name a few. Now for fun I read romance, to mysteries and sfi-fi. Some of my favorite authors are Stephen King, James Patterson, Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, and Nelson DeMille.
Like you, I’m battling to become better and trying to put a small dent in my corner of the universe. I write about the struggle that we all face to become better leaders, better workers, and better people – and how improving ourselves can help with that. Living and defining Life 2.0
As a Professional Digital Marketer and Social Media Consultant, I enjoy helping my team find their niche. That place where they have discovered their passion, brand it, promote it and monetize it. I take special interest in The Baby Boomer generation of Military Brats and TCK’s.. Although the principles and techniques I teach are universal and apply to anyone who desires to follow their dreams, change their circumstances for the better through entrepreneurship.
No matter if you are a Boomer or Millennial, and you want to learn how to DIY your social media presence then you are in the right place ’cause that’s what I teach. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests or just want to drop a line! If you know that your business will suffer without social media marketing, but you just don’t have the time to DIY, I would love to work with you and your business in managing your social media.
