The 70’s and 80’s I spent much of my time aboard missile submarines. Traveling between sub base New London and Rota, Spain in the 70’s and Holy Loch, Scotland in the 80’s. The end of the 80’s I returned to university and earned a Finance Degree. I began work for The Prudential but was offered a 40 hour work week for much more income selling telephone equipment.
My nearly twenty years in the US Navy and nearly twenty years in telecommunications are still proving useful. The transformation in telecommunications from PBX to VOIP left many downsized. I have taken my experience and knack for marketing and I am applying it to areas of interest on the internet. I moved to Colombia in 2003. Living in South America I use the new technology demonstrating the ability to live and thrive anywhere in the world today. Three years ago I rediscovered my passion for finance and began building an agency with Virtual Financial Group. Discovering and living on the leading edge of disruption is exhilarating.
I began studying successful networkers in earnest late in 2007. Much is written and condensed and easily available today using any search engine. I began looking at the individuals themselves, the autobiography being much different than the biography. I discovered the company, the comp plan, and the product do not make a difference. Those that are super successful are all great entertainers who sell tickets to the big show. I began looking for a different way, a way where anyone who participated at any level could find success. It’s possible too! Predictable, however seems to be failure.
I created a page at Flickr.com sharing my travels and pictures.
I have a knack for finding the forgotten, lost and used-to-be-worth something. Putting buyers and sellers together with customer service and the glue, attention to detail is where I shine. The essence of all communication is intention. The opportunity, the real one, is allowing people to say no. The only way yes makes any difference is from choice or a decision on their terms. Education is KEY. Until you know how money works, you will always have to work for money. Visit www.TheExcitedLife.com
