    A good friend of mine introduced me to business advice forum. He stated that I should share what I've learned about business, fitness, entertainment, law, and relationships with the this community, and that I would also meet people whom would have knowledge to share with me. I enjoy the exchange of knowledge, especially when knowledge effectuates a positive change in our lives. Well, I'm a 42 year old business developer. Exactly that, I help people develop their business. All of my clients whether college educated or risk confident entrepreneurs, they all eventually fall into the same trap - technical over thought. I take business knowledge and make it practical.
    I've been a fitness trainer for over 24 years. I use my own body as the witness and the advertisement of what I believe in - good health. To date, exercise and reasonable eating habits are the only fountain of youth that human beings have discovered. So, I take a dip in that fountain five days a week.
    When I was ripped off by a phony paralegal course, I felt that they had robbed me - not of my money, rather an opportunity to learn, so I went after them in the courts. My novice legal research at that time, was still enough to scare them to refund me my money. That was fifteen years ago. Now, I have become quite proficient in paralegal research. Paralegals are the true back bone to any law firm, and you would be surprised at how many major law firms out-source to paralegal firms for their research.
    I was raised around bands. Live instruments, rehearsals, tours...my own family entertainment tree includes Paul from the group the Floaters, Kinney from the Detroit Emeralds, and Al, of Al Hudson and One Way. This is where I learned how to manage groups, book tours, negotiate with club owners, and hire roadies that know how to do the job right.
    Relationships, okay, what would you like to know.:D

    ThirdSEO, thank you for the greeting. Yes, I've been around the block a few times. Right now I'm dealing with former client of whom I have a confidentiality contract with. As quick as last night, he discovered that I am in the business advice community that my friend introduced me to, and he's afraid I may reveal certain secrets regarding my stint as a business advisor with his company. He is slowing learning that my loyalty is not contractual, it simply IS. He's feeling better about my being in the business advice community.
    So, ThirdSEO, small world. Turns out that you and have a mutual acquaintance.
