It is very exciting to be writing this first post and finally putting my real name (Yes, it is Kimothy) into print. For many years I have felt an urge to write, not necessarily to become a writer, but to express thoughts and feelings in words. Instead of creating words on paper, however, I have created and owned, at my last count, nine or so small entrepreneurial endeavors. Some of these businesses were short-lived and some were more successful and long-lasting.
Instead of playing with words, I have enjoyed various geographical locations, a few historical settings, and met many fabulous coworkers and customers. Every time I sold a business, I told myself it was time to begin writing. Instead I bolted away from picking up the pen and opened another business. Many of these self-chosen occupations have some of the attributes experienced by writers: discipline, emotional swings, incredible characters, and some unusual adventures.
