The late part of my life from 51 to ... Since I'm still breathing, I'm in the "to" time frame.

One would have hoped that by this stage, things would be smooth.  But as we all know, sometimes life can deal cards we wish had not come.

I was operating a successful consulting and supply business for many years & they identity theft hit.  I found out just how unhelpful law enforcement agencies could be in that nightmare.  It took me a small fortune to get it cleared up.  That, on top of back to back to back massive hurricanes, caused me to decide to move from the gulf coast and rebuild life more inland.

I've discovered an interesting prejudice out there.  Having been self employed is considered a terrible thing by potential new employers.  Corporations say they want to find executives with an entrepreneurial mindset, but they don't really mean that.  Several hiring agents hove come right out & said that "we don't want to hire someone who has been the boss, because once they have been the boss, they don't make good employees."  That concept has been rather shocking to say the least.  One would think that, having been the owner, one would have a first hand experience and knowledge about making fiscally sound decisions.  But I press on.

I have built a significant toolbox of skills & want to find a place I can put those skills to use for something good.  I have a lot to pass on. And I'm a good teacher, coach & mentor.  And one of my top priorities in business is building business for tomorrow, not just for today. In fact, I still occasionally hear from employees and employers from many years ago.  That tells me I've been doing something right.  Doing right is on top of my list of priorities.
