“I’d rather be on my farm, than be emperor of the world.” – George Washington
I have never done anything dramatic in life. Never sold all my possessions and went backpacking in a foreign land. Never lived out of my car. Never even moved into a tiny house. No, my life has been completely filled with absolute practicality, but I’m rich.
I never thought of this as unusual let alone useful to anyone, until now.
The truth is, for a long time I lived life on a whim.
It worked out well when I was young. I went with whatever I was good at, and took it to the maximum.
In high-school I was good at basketball. So good, I got a college scholarship. In college I was good in science, I got a degree in Biology. I was so good in science I got a Master’s degree in Biology, then a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.
I found a great man when I was doing everything but looking for a great man.
I got a brainy job at a startup biotech company. I spent 10 years in corporate America in cutting edge biotechnology climbing the corporate ladder.
We bought a small farm. Built a nice house with a lovely barn.
The proverbial American dream was ours. Life was good. So I thought.
I got terminated with the rest of my co-workers. Nothing personal, just business they said.
I lost my career.
I found my life.
I believe we are here to help each other thrive to the highest degree possible. I hope my writing will inspire you to press on, and to live a rich full life. A life you will be glad to have lived. Get started here.
