About Me

Never have liked writing about myself but here we go. I grew up on a farm for which I am extremely thankful. My parents taught myself & my brothers many things including the Golden Rule and how to work hard. Growing up on a farm like that we never really had much "stuff" but we didn't care. We would do our chores and then go off exploring the mountains & play "hide & seek" after dark. The older I get the more I appreciate my parents & brothers. When you get down to it, what's really important is relationships.  My God, my wife, my family, my friends ... that's what life is all about.

My first venture into the entrepreneurial world was about 20 years ago. I found a nice wholesale deal on some cool hunting knives so I placed an ad in a national hunting magazine and actually did pretty well! :-)  Later on I started dabbling with eBay & sold a lot of stuff before they jacked their fee's sky high. Somewhere along the way I became heavily involved in website design & info product creation. Looking back, I've failed many more times then I've succeeded but that's ok because I learned quite a bit from those failures.

I suppose I should mention my hobbies 'n stuff. Well, I enjoy my work but I guess that's not a hobby. :-)  Love old cars - a few of my favorites that I'd like to have one day (posted a few pics above - hey, I can dream, can't I?) -  1967 Shelby Mustang, Ford GT40, 1928 Model A Truck, etc. Always have loved to play football (American) and baseball. Enjoy walking the trails here in the mountains with my wife Andrea. I've been blessed with an awesome wife and for that I'm very thankful.

Oh, speaking of mountains check out the YouTube video below. It's not my video, but I thought I would post it here. I was fortunate enough to visit Banff about 10 years ago. Wow, that place is incredible. Everywhere you go it looks like a postcard!

Thanks, Mark, for all you do.  You are one of the best friends I have and I have never ever met you face to face before.  RRW is a true blessing to me.  Mark B
