About KElam
Joined August 2018
My wife Kathy and I have been happily married for 35 years and live in Baton Rouge, LA. We have 3 grown children, 2 sons and a daughter. We also have 4 grandchildren between the ages of 2 and 5. There are 2 boys and 2 girls, including a set of twins (boy and girl).

My background has been in sales/marketing/management for the past 35 years. Kathy was a school teacher and then went back to school to become an RN. After several years in the hospital setting she felt a calling to become a hospice nurse. A few years later she had to stop nursing due to health complications.

We have been interested in starting an e-commerce business for a while. We just had not found the correct platform until now. We are excited to be a part of the WA family and can't wait to start meeting and interacting with the group.

In the immortal lyrics from Steppenwolf:
Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way....Born to be wild!

In closing, maybe not wild but ready to geaux!
Laissez bon temps rouler!

Kirk and Kathy

Congratulation on upgrading to Premium! You have begun a journey that will change your life.
Just remember, life is filled with situations where we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ decision. If you run, you’ll have to face the same fight again. You want to change your life? You have to fight for it. But take heart – you are in good company! Don't give up!
One mistake that I made as a newbie at WA was posting the link to my site in my profile and in comments. I was looking for feedback on my progress but I have since learned that this is a no-no. I was not aware that I was breaking the rules and I wish that someone had told me right up front. So, for your convenience, I have included a link to the rules about spam in this welcome message: I hope this will help you and prevent any problems for you as you move forward.
Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.

Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask
