I'm fairly new to Boise, nearly 3 years. I came here to be closer to my son's family, including (of course) the grandkids.

I'm a semi-retired small-business consultant and entrepreneur coach ... and a recovering workaholic!

In my younger days, I was quite active in youth activities. Coached youth baseball for 8 years -- NEVER my own son -- and league president. I ran a Junior Achievement Center in the late 60s, as a dollar-a-year center manager.

I have been divorced for three years, but remain good friends with my wife. (gasp)

More About Me
I'm an avid nature photographer, and recently moved to be closer to Albertson and Morrison Parks.

I'm a published writer, political commentary, but consider it a hobby.

And I confess to being a political junkie -- elected twice to public office, an Ohio School Board, and a Seattle-area water commission.
Work Experience:
See above. I did say I'm a recovering workaholic! That means I describe myself in purely professional terms.

But I am recovering, and Boise is a fabulous place to smell the flowers ... and to SEE them.
Organizations / Affilations:
Gun Owners of America and the American Civil Liberties Union. (Tells you I'm not very partisan, eh?)

Like most of my clients, I really don't like consultants! Most of them try to worm their way into more and more billable hours.

As a former corporate trainer, my ego is wrapped around training you to stand on your own, instead of making you dependent upon me.

My specialty, tracing back to the 60s, is "entrepreneurial management." To me, that means performance-based compensation for everyone. GOOD employees have the same need for achievement as entrepreneurs do ... but employees have a lower tolerance for risk.

I'm from Cleveland, where Lincoln Electric employees makes nearly $100,000 per year ON THE PRODUCTION LINE ... while Lincoln is known as a ruthless price cutter in its industry. (Welding)

Golly, high-paid workers and low-price products. Didn't our entire country once do that? Long ago?
