Skills

Income Stream Builder
I believe we should NEVER stop building our Skills and Income streams.   In todays economy you just don't know when one income strem will collapse and leave you hurting.   Therefore, I belieave in building many forms of Income.   1. Your Primary Job.- Work it to pay your bills,add a savings cusion (10%) and put money (5%) into other business ventures. Goal : One day you can quit you primary Job.   2. Your Hobby- Get good enough at it so you can market thoses skills.   3. Always be on the lookout for anything that will add another income stream.    Example: I use GDI- Globle Domains International- It is a Multi-Level marketion company selling the only Web Domains left. With 50 thousand people joining the net daily, it's a NO BRAINER. I advetise this to everyone.

To find a home where I can be challenged, productive  and inventive until I retire.

Summary

I believe every person should always be vigilant of opportunities( Or they will pass you by), increasing your skills and expanding the industries and businesses you are exposed to. This will make you a well rounded individual and increase your personal worth and opportunities.

I am a Cajun from New Orleans,LA. I love to go back home for Mardi Grew. My wife and I now live in Round Rock, TX and love it here.There is so much to do that you will never get board. The only thing that will make life even better is when I buy a house on the lake. I would love to spend my spare time on the water. In 2008 I enrolled at the University of Phoenix on campus to pursue a career in marketing and management. I knew this would be a good opportunity since the economy was on a downward spiral. I only have approximately six months left to complete my BA then I plan on continuing to get my master's degree in administration and marketing. I have been in retail management for over 20 years and have made a positive impact on every place I have worked. With my extensive background I can work in HR, Training, Marketing or any type of management. Although I have found retail fun, and challenging (with the hours) It does not make for a good quality of life. That is why I am looking to change careers,something with regular hours and weekends off. I strive to ensure safety and enhance company profitability. I focus on high quality and productivity to meet and exceed company goals and objectives in a timely manner. I have extensive experience in human resource policies, budget processes, and managing improvement teams to improve efficiency and reduce costs. I work well under pressure, and regularly interface at all levels of management and the workforce. On multiple occasions, I have successfully resolved crisis situations and serious customer relations problems. With an Associates in management and years of experience in the sales industries, I have the versatility to be able to contribute in a variety of environments. Through training and motivation, I work to maximize team results and develop my people to fully utilize their skills and maximize their contribution. I would enjoy discussing how we could utilize my experience and training to meet your goals; develop and complete projects that enhance the success of your team and company.
