I will not say I’m retiring because I hate that word. It makes me think a person is giving up. Besides, biblically, the only retirement is death. I’m just getting my second wind and preparing for new adventures, new struggles, and new dreams.

Sales, Cars, and Tech

I’ve enjoyed a long career in Sales. First for my own companies, then for others. I’ve sold both services and physical items through the years. It wasn’t long before I began to work with and help younger or newer salespeople which eventually led to promotions.

Cars are a quest. I never owned a muscle car but had friends that did. I enjoyed them by proxy. While they were driving Mustangs and Cameros to school, I was in my 1960 Ford station wagon. A real chick magnet, if there ever was one. When the transmission gave up, I moved to my second car, a 1952 Plymouth. Four doors and a flat-head six. Oh boy!

I love WordPress. Well, maybe I just really, really like it. I’m not sure about the commitment to love technology. However, I like, use, and recommend WordPress every chance I get.

My WordPress journey began in 2005 not long after its release. I needed a platform to host my new podcast and my current blog software would not accommodate it. A quick search led me to WordPress.

Since then, I have started and shut down dozens of blogs, websites, and even an eCommerce website. All run on WordPress.

I spent the better part of the last thirty years in sales. I used technology to assist me in those endeavors and I also put a lot of miles on my cars–hundreds of thousands of miles.
