    How's it going,

    My name is Calvin and I have been involved in numerous businesses and partnering ventures, most of which have been related to marketing (online and off) and education. I've also had my hand in film production, construction, and sales. I grew the last business I was involved in from $350,000 in annual sales to $1,250,000 in 4 years, but had to leave due to no option for advance within the company. They were family-owned and there were too many fingers in the honeypot. After freeing up my time and moving to the Dallas/Fort Worth area I was asked, by friends of mine, to partner into their software development business. It's been three months and we are already expanding into multiple markets. The great thing about working with them is their position in the world of cutting edge technology and the fact that they're always looking to innovation, which is a huge leap when compared to what I've come from: having to constantly explain to the CEO why we needed a website, as well as many other small advancements.

    I consider what I've been able to do in my life a major accomplishment, especially considering that I come from very little and only attained an associates degree in electrical technologies. But, enough about me and who I am, is there anyone here who has dealt with the drastic changing of career paths and the learning curve that comes with it? I would really appreciate any stories (full fledged, please) and hope to see some interesting conversations.

    Thanks,

    -Calvin Tyler / Mercury Flight
