Discussing Family, Love and Success, and Sharing My Experiences In Each
When life as an adult started for me I knew I was created for greatness, but there was no owners manual on how to create this greatness. In my 20's I studied three (3) key areas... Personal Development (being the best me I can be), Marketing and Copywriting (using words in marketing pieces to compel consumers to an action). This website is my place to share my thoughts, advice I've given to my children and to share things that are important to me. Keep in mind, these are MY opinions and thoughts based upon my experiences.

My Children

Between Joy and I we've raised 5 kids, 4 boys and my daughter is the baby of our family.

We now have 7 grand-children between the 5 kids. Three of the kids are married and two are single. We are raising two of our grand-children.

Over the past 20 years we certainly had our ups and downs, our good times and our tough times. It's called being a family. The blessing is Joy and I are almost always on the same page and almost always support the others decision.

In this website I'll discuss some of the events of our raising these kids and how we handled those moments.

Following is a menu of the different categories for my blog posts associated to family and our kids...

This My Story, My Feelings & My Concerns. Maybe You Can Relate With Me, Or Maybe You Can't. It's Still My Story Based Upon My Experiences, My Upbringing And Who I Am As A Person.

About Me
A little about me (my profile) to show my upbringing...

I was born in Idaho and live in Washington. My parents, grandparents and great-grandparents are all Americans. My parents are still married, a novelty in today's times.

As a child I played baseball, and frankly, was very good at the game. I would say I had a pretty normal childhood and was raised in a loving family that did have its problems.

I started my adult life out in the US Coast Guard, and absolutely loved it! From there I went into sales and eventually owned my own business. I've built 3 businesses over the past 30 years, all of which have been very successful.

I've been married 3 times. The first two times I just wasn't ready to be married, but had very amicable divorces. My current wife of over 20 years is still the love of my life.

I have 3 children from 2 wives ... 2 boys and a daughter. Joy has been married just twice and has 2 boys. All of our children are grown adults now.

I have a high school diploma (3.2 GPA) and 1 year of college. However, I've gone through many private training courses to include: Personal Development, Sales, Marketing and Copywriting.
I've had many successes and many failures over the years. I even had to file bankruptcy in my early 30's. I've had years when I struggled to put food on the table and years when I made a 6 digit income and "life was good".

I take full responsibility for my life, the good and the bad. I don't blame others for my problems because I realize my life, whether good or bad, is in direct relationship to my thoughts, what I focus on and the actions I take, all of which is in my control and nobody else's.

We all own our feelings and actions. If my flying the American Flag, for example, bothers you then don't pay attention to what I'm doing. It's not like I'm chasing you down with a machete to cut your head off. I'm just simply flying my countries Flag which does you no harm to anyone and doesn't affect you at all, unless you choose to let it.

Finally, I believe in God and believe that Jesus died on the cross for me. While I am not an every Sunday church goer, I have a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father that's very important to me, and I know I'm nothing without Him.

I do not judge others or care much about how others choose to live their lives. I have no more intention of getting in someone's face with how they choose to live their lives than I want others to get in my face with how I choose to live my life. As long a person's choices don't affect me and my family, I don't care what they do. For example, smoke all of the pot you want. Just don't come to my house and smoke it around me and my family. See the difference?

My beliefs and values are carefully established. I have a very clear reason why I believe the way I do.

The Words Of A Dad Facebook Feed...

This is more true than many realize!

In marketing one of the most important elements is to know your businesses "Demographics". Many overlook this which costs the company a lot of money in extra marketing they must do to generate sales and lost sales. Demographics is a profile of WHO your customers are.

Let me tell you who they aren't... snowflakes living in mom and dad's basement! They DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY! So you have to wonder why the NFL and other liberal outspoken companies are saying anything to cater to those who don't have money and pushing away those with money. In my opinion, VERY bad move! (Why I use an alias and won't reveal my true identity... I feel it's very bad for businesses to get political and highly recommend my clients not to. If they must, I recommend they use an alias like I am.)

This can only go one way... very badly for those businesses who are alienating those of us with money. How many customers do you think Starbucks and Apple have lost? LOT's! I refuse to have anything to do with either of these companies. My good sized company ended ALL usage of Apple products over a year ago, and never go to Starbucks or give out Starbuck gift cards (I give out their competitors gift cards).

I'm very patriotic. I love my country deeply. I love my flag and I have utmost respect for our veterans (I'm a vet too). I'm also well educated. These companies who are pandering to Snowflakes (liberals) are pushing away 1/2 of the country, the 1/2 with money, from doing business with them.
