This is a long one!
Born in Northern Canada, moved South when I was 10 and started getting into trouble. Spent time in Juvie and took off from home at 14. Hitched around
Canada and the US for few years. Spent a few yrs in jail. Started working as a traveling salesman, married young, had a boy.
Divorced and went back up to the Yukon. Worked on a paddle wheel tour boat, bought my first Harley and went back down to Van isle. Wrote a UNIV
entrance exam although I had only a grade 8 education. Aced it and went into education. Hated it, switched to Music and Theater. Dropped out, went
into the Navy.
Played in a few bands, toured a bit and recorded a few cd's.Had a few on the radio etc.
Traveled more and worked in a few bars, decided to try sales again, moved into public speaking and motivational seminars. Stopped as I got tired of
the travel. Worked as a trainer in a health club for a few years, bought another bike and went commercial fishing for a few Months.
So much more than I can describe or even remember but I ended up quitting a great job in an office one day, threw a dart on a map and ended up in
Asia. Went for a year, stayed for 8.
Tried teaching English, couldn't stand it. Went to Thailand for a stint on the beach, over to Japan, Taiwan,
China and Vietnam. Back to Korea and opened a bar. and another. Met my wife. We imported lobster from Canada, had a lobster pound in Incheon and
opened a lobster restaurant. I was the first sashimi chef in Korea.
Came back to Canada, bought a bakery, sold it, bought another and am selling it now as I just bought another business in BC. Pizza!
Next? Who knows?
How did I do all this in 47 yrs? I am the poster child for ADHD and as you can see, it ain't no picnic! lol
Had to skip about 80% as it would take a very long post to get it all...even if I could. But you get the picture.
