What About Me?

My wife and I just passed our three year anniversary of moving to Lowell, Indiana. We’ve loved every minute of it. I often think about the path that brought us here. We had been living in Illinois and decided it was time to downsize and move out of the state. So, we put our house on the market and as luck would have it, sold our home more quickly than we had anticipated. We hadn’t done much house shopping but we had a plan. We found a house in Beecher that we could rent month to month while we looked for our next house.

Holding Onto Hope Only To Be Let Down

December 14, 2017 is the day that I said goodbye to the corporate rat race. I had been a sales rep with a medical device company for almost 15 years. When I started, things were good. We were a solid #2 player in our market. We had a good product line and some well received and innovative new products. But then, the company became stagnant.
