Until now for the past several months my proifile had only two sentences basically telling all scammers and liars on this site to stay away and that I am looking for a ginuine and sincer woman. I havedecided instead to write a veryextensive introduction. I know...it's VERY LONG! But if you read it you will learn much about me as well as the kind of woman I'm looking for so it will give you a much better idea if we might be a good match for each other. As a young man I was pretty much aimless in life with no real goals or aspirations for my future. As far back as I can remember I have always been shy and even an introvert. I allowed it to limit my expectations for life working for minimum wages in various undesirable jobs until one day I read a book about personal development. That one book showed me that it does not matter who you are, where you live, what challenges you might face, what your level of education is or is not, what level your IQ might be, or what life might have exposed you to. It does not matter what happens to you but rather how you respond to it. It’s pages were filled with real life examples of people who had face much, much more drastic and severe challenges than I had ever had to deal with and they went on to find great success in life both personally and professionally. That book awakened me to new possibilities for life and I began to stretch and grow into a new and better me day by day, month by month, year by year. I have been an avid student of personal and professional development for many, many years now and the information, tools and resources I’ve learned and acquired have enabled me to grow from a dishwasher in the back of kitchens to go on to have very successful careers in Corporate America working for global multi-billion dollar technology companies in sales, marketing, management and executive management. I eventually became the CEO of a company in that same arena. I don’t share any of this to brag or say “hey, look how awesome I am” but instead only to say that if I can do these things, anyone can do this and much, much more if they decide to and take consistent action toward their own ambitions. I did not originally bring any special knowledge, tools, experience, understanding or anything at all that would enable or insure my successes. I was a simple guy going nowhere in particular who only decided to raise my expectations for life and learn and acquire the knowledge, tools and experiences necessary. By the way, I dropped out of college after my very first year! I have been an entrepreneur over the past many years owning both traditional companies as well as online ventures which is mostly what I do now, working online from home with a very flexible schedule. Over the years I have experienced both the victories of incredible successes and devastating losses both professionally and personally and continually strive to learn as much as possible from both. My experience is that I usually learn much more from losses than from victories. I believe life itself is an incredible blessing and that the true joys are not so much found in the destinations in life but rather in the journey itself AND with those you take the journey with.
