A Little Bit About Me

A Little Bit About Me

Here’s the quick version:

I’m a husband and father. I spent the first 15 years after college working as a construction project manager. When our first kid was six months old, I decided I needed to make a change in my life. I was leaving for work before he woke up, and by the time I got home he was falling asleep. That’s not how we wanted to raise our kids.

My wife went on a long run one Saturday. When she got back she told me she’d had an “epiphany” and that I should quit my job. So, I told her she should go on runs more often. And then I turned in my two-week notice.

I do several things now. I’m an Amazon Seller consultant. I’m a freelance WordPress developer. And I write on this blog.

I’m addicted to nonfiction books and learning new ways to improve and grow. So, most of what I write about is stuff I learn during this “rebirth.”

I also read a lot of nonfiction. When I finish a book, I download the highlights from my Kindle and write a quick summary/review. This is mostly so I can reference them later on when I need to refresh my memory for an article. But if you like that sort of thing, here’s the running list of books:
