I have 40 years of Retail Management experience. I am the person they send in to fix things. Call it a Store Focus Specialist, a Smoke Jumper, an Outlaw. I can work within the system or go outside the box when needed. I love walking into chaos and bringing order. I am not a key word person and my education came from mentors not schools. I believe that everything that we do starts with hiring the right people. Driving sales, merchandising, customer service and metrics are just keywords until you hire the right people. My top talents are Recruiting, hiring, training, associate development, and going into a focus store and turning it around. Most importantly I believe in people and that if you teach them, develop them and believe in them they will do far more than they thought possible.

My cousin Amelia and I slipped out of bed just before morning stealing a handful of Aunt Mamie’s homemade buttermilk biscuits and cane fishing poles as we silently headed out the door.  In the darkness, before morning we bravely...
We are born into the world as a blank canvas filled with infinite possibility.  We can paint or design our life without any limitations or obstacles.  The path is wide and we must explore and discover the many things...
It was near the end of March 1958 and spring was in the air.  The mornings still had a slight chill and after we shared a plate of pancakes and bacon, my dog Cookie and I began our morning...
It was the summer of 97 and a new day was awakening with a dazzling sunrise.  I was walking by the ocean soaking up the warmth of the sun’s rays and the quiet of the morning.  My son had...
It was early June and the heat outside would take your breath away.  It was humid, and the heat index was off the charts.  I retreated inside to do a bit of writing and to cool off.  My writing...
