Gotta Start Somewhere ..

This is my first post. It’s not an easy post to write. Why? Well, because I’ve really never considered myself a writer. Always thought I was a decent editor, but writer? Not really my thing.

To get over that – I’m committing to writing here at least twice per week. Let’s see, today is Wednesday. So I’ll commit to writing on Wednesdays and Saturdays. See how that plays out.

What to write about? That’s always been my main issue. What can I write about? Do I have anything of value to share? Any words of wisdom? That is yet to be determined I think. In the meantime, I’ll use this as a sort of journal. The musings of an entrepreneur working to build a sustainable and scalable internet based business.

A little bit about me:

I’m the eldest of my generation and have a slew of brothers and sisters. We’re all pretty close and get along very well overall. I’ve always been into sports and have participated in softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer throughout my school years. I have a couple of business plan ideas within the sports niche which I’m really excited about and looking forward to building out.

I joined the US Navy while still in high school and shortly after that I was off on the first of many adventures. That was what hooked me after all .. the old commercials where the Navys’ tagline: “It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure!” caught my imagination. And I certain did have my share and more of adventures! Ah, but those are for another day 🙂

After I left the Navy, I got a job as a civilian police dispatcher, then patrol officer with a private security company in Hawaii. After that I landed my current job, as an airline communications specialist. I’ve been steadily employed all my adult life and am grateful that my jobs have always provided me with the time and opportunity to develop my own interests. I’ve had this job for nearly 24 years. The folks I work with are my extended family and my second home.

Home life is a zoo .. literally. My partner of 18+ years and I had a discussion long ago which went something like this: if God and the Universe puts a critter in our path who needs some food, shelter and a little love .. who are we to say no? So it should come as no surprise that our household now consists of 7 cats and 1 not-a-dog. Okay, well it’s a Chihuahua and I swear they’re not really dogs. Every single one of them either found us or we found them .. and they just stick.

I am truly blessed.

This brings me to the end of this first post. I’ve had many great life experiences, which I’ll share along the way, and there are many more in the making.

Aloha for now.

    Welcome to the world of writing & blogging Robin! I’m sure you have plenty of value to share and many of great stories to tell.

    Someone once told me that although what you have to share may not be for everyone… it’s for someone… even if just one, you’re reaching someone, helping them, guiding them, inspiring them in some way shape or form.

    I look forward to the stories you’ll have to share! Love you, Ang
