I am a reader, writer, listener and seeker of knowledge. I do a lot of a pondering about books, art, authors, music, poetry, service, kindness, and most of all, "people." These are the influences that help us develop our identity, change it (even reinvent it) as we go through life.    

I have spent my career, both as an entrepreneur and as a business executive, working with companies and employee groups of varies sizes. I was successful in building my own company from an idea to a functioning business. For 22 years it was a strong sales company covering 15 Western States and and I personally helped hundreds of companies grow their business. 

It was always the people that made the difference with their sincere efforts. Being a witness to their successful results was (and still is) truly inspiring and rewarding. Those years presented me with some great teaching and learning opportunities, confirming my belief people can and do reshape themselves as they rethink their actions and lives. People want to learn. They are not just programmed to be what they always have been, but will rise and grow with each new opportunity.

My blog, www.connectedeventsmatter.com is an effort to explore the influences from our lifetime connections, how they change and impact our development and identity.  The impact is ongoing and life altering.  

We have both a physical and spiritual self image.  We have our own intellectual growth. As we look at our experiences, and grow with them, we give purpose to our lives. The books we read and the authors we value are characters in our own life story that have a significant influence on our growth and lives. This blog will look closely at these influences and presents relevant book reviews. We are connected by the events in our lives and we are connected to each other. 

 

Be passionate about improving. Be passionate about helping others. Listen to your feelings
