PART II – THE REALITY
OK, so I wrote all of that in the third person, just like everybody writes their bio’s or CV‘s. Rather fun, but I can’t quite leave it at that. Here’s more of the back story.
In 1974 I had three major events – Nicole and I were married (on Mount Shasta, mind you), we bought a house, and I started my own business meeting with people to discuss their finances. Now, almost 40 years later, we are still married, we still live in the same (greatly remodeled) house, and I am still meeting with clients to discuss their wants and needs. Your math is correct, I’m in my 60’s.
We have had five children, one of whom went back to be with the Lord, bless her little heart. Nicole and I home schooled our children, all of whom are now successful professional adults in their own right.
All of these years, and all of our family, and all of our many life experiences have been bound together by the common thread of learning to walk with Jesus.
Now, being in business for that long has, of course, allowed me to make my share of mistakes, large and small. It has also allowed me the great privilege of watching many successes, large and small, in the lives of the people I have worked with all these years. In the last four years or so, as the economy has tanked and people have experienced pressures and decisions – and opportunities – they never thought would come into their lives, I have spent more and more time Coaching people in areas far beyond just their finances.
I invite you to explore the possibilities of you and I looking at mistakes and successes together!
