About JoeyT13
Joined May 2018
My name is Joe Tillman.

I grew up on a small farm in rural northeast Arkansas before the internet existed. As a matter of fact, we didn't even have a microwave oven. But, in that century, not many of the masses did. I played trumpet in band, sang in barbershop quartets, and read encyclopedias, because that was the best place to learn. I learned the value of good friends and good clean fun.

I moved to central Arkansas for college and studied management, marketing, and French. I didn't finish the degree, but lacked a couple semesters. I got frustrated with the curriculum that was only applicable if I was going to be an academician. The information, as presented, was not applicable to a small business, other than the overall knowledge base.

The best thing about moving to central Arkansas was meeting my partner and best friend. She has been by my side for over 32 years. She gives me joy and I give her high blood pressure. I know. Not an even trade, right? We have two grown sons that make us immensely proud. They are strong, independent, intelligent, and talented. And, it is bittersweet that they both moved away to the "city".

I have many interests. I played trumpet in the nineties with a jazz band that opened for Ray Charles once. (That was a hoot!) I played rhythm guitar and sang in a local blues/classic rock band, and played in a local classical guitar ensemble for a couple years. I enjoy writing, too. I have a movie script started and a couple novels. I work two jobs, though, so I have not had the drive to get them finished. My plan is to reorganize my time this year to enable me to finish those projects.

Work-wise, I worked on farms and at a local radio station, growing up. Worked in restaurants in college. I left college to do contract food management for university dining services. I moved around four states and was immersed in cultures very different from rural Arkansas. That was a lot of great experiences for me and my Angel, as well as our two sons.

When our boys were getting close to junior high age, we moved back to central Arkansas, bought a couple restaurants, and finished raising them. Then, I did some insurance and yellow page advertising sales. That taught me some about me. Some good. Some not so much. I bought a Farmers Insurance agency, and ran that for a few years, when I also became a full time deputy sheriff.

The law enforcement has gotten into my blood and I can't let it go. I get to help so many people and the family of fellow law enforcement professionals are some of the best people-giving and supportive, that I have ever worked with.

I am soon going to be out of the insurance industry to be able to focus more on law enforcement and have time for the pursuits that pull on my soul. The writing, music, time with family, and time for me I have neglected too much working seventy to one hundred hours per week, almost every week, over the past thirty something years has not been something I want to continue.

I love building things and helping people. At WA I will get to do both. Work? This is more like play. I am thankful I have found this community.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
