"Playing It Straight!"
Welcome to my "Professional Site."
It's the site which "officially" reflects a my career... you know, that rewarding body of work for
which I attended college.
Frankly, I just consider this
site as a live-stream of a "life-in-progress" which does don't "translate" well
into a tidy resume, So, I offer commentaries and other personal sites to expand this one.
Some people consider me to be an
excellent sales person; others, a creative and tactical marketer; and still others, as an eclectic businessman with varied
interests -- perhaps too varied.
Judge me as you wish!
In truth, I'm
some of all the above. But, at my core, I'm an ADVOCATE... for products in which I believe, for
business practices which I've formulated and time-tested, plus for causes which I believe affect basic values of relationships,
business, and our society as a whole.
I am a fierce competitor, but not in tennis,
golf, touch football or in any other recreational sense. About this
winning, I oddly have no appetite, for I once competed in team sport.
My game is persuasion. And my satisfaction
is not in winning at it, per se, but seeing the subsequent betterments that result from my successes.
Enjoy your visit.
