Tom was born in Florida, but now lives in Oklahoma. How I got here was that I went to Nashville and took a wrong turn. My excuse for going to Nashville was to get an engineering degree from Vanderbilt University. I got to Tulsa because I got a job offer from an energy& chemical comapny and they said that’s where my pay check would be sent.
In a 35 year checkerboard career I worked as an engineer, but also as a corporate planner/financial analyst, Director of Information Systems and GM of Real Estate and Corporate Services. We were still looking for something I could do when the company decided to move the office to California. I decided at that point to quit and become an independent Management Consultant.
I’m still doing a little work for money and more as a volunteer, but am mostly retired. However, I still enjoy reading and learning about business and management, so I decided to try this blog. I learn more when I have to write it down and when I get comments from people whether they agree with me or not – so I appreciate any feed back you chose to give me.
I have a wife, three grown kids who all are married and collectively have introduced me to 8 grandkids. So as you might guess, I get lots of advice and feedback. But I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
