I grew up in a small town, in Arkansas. At age 13 we moved to the big city of Little Rock. There I played basketball for my Junior High School.

At the age of 16, I got my first car, not much, but my father got it for me, from out next door neighbor. He had told me a few months earlier that he would buy me a car before he died if I would just be patient. Well on a Sunday night of November 11 he bought me that car. Monday morning at about 5:45 AM he had a heart attack and passed away.

At he age of 17 I was able to buy another, by dream car, a 1957 Chevy. I became quite good at racing with it and won many races. I continued racing for about 3 years. Well, I had to stop that when I got married at age 20.

I went to work as a ceramic tile contractor's help, with my new father-in-law. I became a very well known and respected tile contractor myself. I was a contractor for the next 41 years.

At age 62, my health was getting bad, or just old, so I decided to try to find an internet business that I could do from home. I started out marketing Herbalife. Although I had been using the products and love the way made me feel, nutritional products just isn't my cup of tea. My wife of 27 years, told me that I should find something that I was truly passionate about, knowing that my passions were hunting and fishing. Well, I took her advice and boy was she right. I am now working with products for the Outdoor Sportsman. Now this may not sound like much of a life story, but I think I have had a very good life and hope it last a long time to come.
