Business Journal Publisher

That’s a lot of jobs in one mans life, even for my life.  As they say, I have just enough knowledge to make me dangerous in any of these positions.  I’ve developed many skills in my life because of these jobs.  In growing up I never expected this in my life.  When I was a senior in high school I went down to the Armed Forces Recruiting Center for a “Seniors Day” I took all their tests and I was hoping that they would tell me what I would be good at then I would go into that field!  They called me up and said out of 200 guys that were there, I was in the top ten and I could do what ever I wanted in the Army!  Not the answer I wanted for my life.  I did not enlist. Maybe I should have, it probably would have given me more discipline.  Some of us kidd around and say were still trying to figure what we want to do with our life! “Life is what happens when your busy making other plans”  My life has lead me down this path and as I wonder what my purpose in life is, it really gets down to be pretty simple.  I won’t be remembered for all those jobs.  I may only be remembered for carrying on our family name.  For alot of us that’s all we will be. I’m ok with just that, so I’m pretty much done with my main responsibilities.  Time for “Earl time,” yeah right that’s going to happen, I heard the wife calling again!
