I just joined WA and am so excited to start building a business on line. Here I am with my brother at a recent reunion in Chicago. I was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, came to the States when I was 10 yrs old. Grew up in Chicago, attended high school , college and the Art Institute, as well as, martial arts from the age of 15. After college I went to Asia to study martial arts at the Kanda Asian Federation of Marial Arts in Tokyo. While there I was hired by an Asian company in executive management and spent over a decade in Southeast Asia, travelling around the world on business and enjoying the various cultures along the way. When I came back from Asia I moved to northern California, started my own business and eventually sold that and became a CEO of a software development company. I do a lot of creative writing, have written and published a book with others, love organic gardening and painting as well as travelling.
I moved to Oregon four years ago for a career change and now four years later I want a business on the internet that gives me global market access. I miss interacting with people from all over the world and the richness other cultures bring. After a lot of research on line I decided that WA had the most to offer and I love the idea of learning within a community. I do have some computer skills but in building a business on line I am a beginner and will be greatful for any help that I receive. In time I will be competent to help other beginners - Gee this is just like a dojo in Martial Arts! I look forward to meeting all of you, getting to know your life stories and your on going successes with WA and in your personal lives. Hope in time I can be a buddy and have plenty of buddies to share thinking with. We really are all in this together.
