I was born at an early age in Pontotoc, Mississippi. Both of my parents were attending college at Ole Miss in Oxford, MS so I grew up learning to be frugal.
In my teenage years, we moved to Cleveland, Tennessee. In the hills of Tennessee I learned to enjoy driving in the mountains and water skiing on mountain lakes. I also learned a lot about being self sufficient from the Appalachian folks who live in east Tennessee.
Both my grandfathers taught me how to create things with my hands. My Daddy Straw as we called him was an inventor and created many things from steel. His most amazing invention was a tree cutting bulldozer blade that made clearing the scrub timber an easy task.
After graduating college at Tennessee Tech university I settled back in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Most of my time was spent as Plant Engineer at a Westvaco printing plant. At Westvaco, I learned a variety of skills like how to program PLC’s and deal with employees.
After Westvaco decided to get out of the printing business, I discovered my true calling in life – sharing my knowledge with others and helping them improve their performance.
I have amassed a great deal of knowledge in a variety of subjects and I am now finding new and exciting ways to share this information.
That brings me to the purpose of this web site. It is here to help you improve in any and all areas of your life – From running a business to improving your health to finding and attracting a mate.
I am happy to help as much as I can.
