I would say that me working as an entrepreneur has bought me a lot of satisfaction. There are a lot of long hours and stress involved. The end result is to have built something pretty much out of nothing that could be passed down to future generations.
The career I retired from in the Non-Profit world brought me together with great people who care about others. It allowed me to see what I was made of. I traveled and got to know much of the country and it's people and the community spirit that drive so many places.
As a consultant I constantly learn and grow and again meet people and I get to work with some great minds and wonderful people with heart and spirit.
As a writer I learn but I also find solace. My imagination is often in over-drive and I love the art of creative discovery.
