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.

The sand was already hot to my bare feet and crossing the towering sand dunes was like climbing mountains to a six-year-old.  The sound of the seagulls filled the air and the waves crashing upon the shore sounded like...
Sunday was always a great day for us.  It meant that the work on the farm would stop for a day and we could be children.  The highlight of the day was the cover dish lunch after church once...
He stood at his office window high above the city pondering his life, looking for something written in his heart to let him know that what he did in his life had made a difference, somehow made someone’s life...
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...
