My 40 Year Professional Career

   I’ve been extremely lucky in the jobs I’ve held in the past.  Each job prepared me for the next job. Even though all of these careers I’ve been immersed in are widely varied they did have one thing common, professionalism was a requirement.

Career Capstone Project

Creating a company whose Mission Statement is helping people create memorable crafting experiences using exotic woods and easy to learn inlay techniques.  We make it EZ for you to build heirloom quality items!

I’ve been nurturing this startup business far to long.  The last few years were difficult but that is in the rear view mirror.  Ahead of me is my professional career’s capstone project. I’ve never been the one to set my own work priorities, I’ve always had somebody tell me to work on this next.  Perhaps this is the biggest hurdle to get over which is why I’ve enlisted help in the form of a Whetstone support group.

I’ll publicly post my goals, strategies, and next steps on this page.  I’ll provide regular updates, via blogs, so you can follow along and enjoy the ups and downs of entrepreneurial life!
