Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in San Francisco and I have lived in the Bay
Area and in Atlanta. As you can imagine, living in these places
helps me to have a pretty broad perspective about people and the
choices we make. It has. The short story is that it has helped me
to be one who loves people. I like meeting all kinds of folks and
digging in to find out what makes them tick. I believe that
everyone has a story to tell and I want to be able to hear as many
of these stories — and in as much detail — as I can.
I would like to hear your story. Not just read about it, although I
will read every word that you've written on your profile here, but
also hear you tell about you and hear how you tell about you.
I can hardly wait . . .
I am happy, healthy, and looking for the edge
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
With the exception of some short stints into the traditional world
of 9-to-5ing, I have provided my own employment for all of my adult
life. Primarily, I have operated a promotional products
distributorship, supplying products that my clients use decorated
with their logo, mascot, slogan or other message. But for the last
two years I have been transitioning from this and I am working full
time in the Financial Services industry. Now I work with families
and individuals to help them make certain that they have their
money in the right places, and that it is doing the right things,
in order to accomplish their goals and their dreams.
And, yes, I continue to believe in and practice shameless
self-promotion. I have even started a blog (about finances), it
might give some more insight into who I am:
Not that work is all that I am doing with my life, it is just that
my biggest portion of time is committed to it right now. But that
will not last too long. The best part is that my work is more like
a crusade (many families are in need of the financial education and
resources that I provide to help them have a solid and clear
financial road map), I approach each day with great enthusiasm
knowing that what I do matters for folks.
In addition to working I also am a member of several organizations
that do fabulous work here at home and across the country.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six things? Okay, here are six tangibles that I would rather not do
- cell phone
- my glasses
Most of these things are, as a practical matter, what I need and
use during the course of most days. I will mention my work on here
(probably a few times) since it takes a good piece of my time and
focus, these are my usual tools.
And here are six not-so-tangible things that I prefer to
