jimAbout me and how I add value:

Career & Health
At 50 I found myself in need of new job skills and new opportunities in a rapidly changing job market. I also found new health challenges, some which I was not anticipating.

The bottom line is, that things change, and we need to adapt and change with them.  I explore and write about new opportunities, products, and educational resources that I’d love to share with you, and create a dialog for growth.

Finance & Frugality
Earned both my undergraduate degree and MBA, with zero debt.
Pressed for a 10 year mortgage on my home and it has been paid off for 6 years now, in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Purchased my first rental property when I was 22 years old and sold it for 150% profit.
Grew up in a household with 10 people, so budgeting on a large scale, and stretching resources has been ingrained in me from a very young age.

Let me help you utilize credit cards to your advantage and leverage points programs without being enticed to spend more.   I can help you do that.  Watch for more posts on practical information about saving money in simple ways while investing in things that provide the most benefit for you and your family.

Technology & Automation
Believe it or not...the future is now.  I try to leverage my career knowledge in computers with a futurist mindset.  This has helped me identify simple, tech advantages to exponentially improve my daily life. I always try to do this without breaking the bank.  Some technology might be better suited to stay on the shelf. I help you determine the difference through product reviews and details of how they fit into the modern home.

If you have an idea, or would like my help with something, please reach out to me.  Collaboration and sharing is the future, I honestly believe that.

Thank you for taking the time to share the journey with me.
