I have done quite a few things early on in life. I had a stroke at the age of 23 that left me unable to walk and clearly see out of my left eye. After much rehab and determination, I gained my balance and am pretty much everything I was prior to the stroke. I own a few businesses that are growing and do well, but I want something different in life. With these businesses I don't have to be hands on any longer so I now get the freedom to do something that I love and I am passionate about. If you're receiving this resume as a member of the management team, there's a 100% chance that I love something about the open position.
