Please share a short bio with us so that we can get to know you better.
I've been married to the same amazing woman since 1990 and as far as I'm concerned that just isn't long enough. I have 4 beautiful daughters and no sons and don't ask me if I'm going to 'try' for a boy. There aren't any switches, I've looked.
What sort of hobbies or interests do you have?
I LOVE podcasting. With Cliff's help I started The Blue Collar Radio Network and my flag show is the Blue Collar Business Podcast. I help sub-contractors and manufacturers have confidence in their pricing so they can escape the Blue Collar Trap.
