Portrait of a confident businessman

I am a proud father of two wonderful children. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 28+ years. I have 4 siblings and great parents.

When I was 19 years old I went to work for my dad who owned an insurance agency. I worked there as an employee and purchased the agency from my Dad in 1998. The Insurance Agency is still going strong to this day. I am currently the sole owner. Approximately 10 years ago I moved the insurance agency from an office building to my house.  This was a very smart business move to make at the time as the Internet has changed the way of doing business. I have been working at home for over a decade.

In 2001 I founded Mega Media Depot which has been a book publishing, printing, marketing and media sales company. Some of the highlights for this company include listing over 1,000,000 items on EBay at one time as well as achieving a current feedback rating of over 100,000 stars.

In my personal time I enjoy coaching youth sports.  Since I was 17 years old, I have been involved in coaching either a basketball or football at the grade school level.  I started out coaching my first basketball team at the grade school I attended when I was in high school.  I had over 20 years of coaching experience before I had the pleasure of coaching my own two children.  I’m entering year 30 in coaching in a career that boasts an 80%+ winning percentage and a half dozen championships.

In my free time, I like to speculate on horse racing and the money-management angle of gambling and speculation.  This has been a nice release from the daily grind of work.

One of my passions has been watching and trading the stock and futures market.  I traded commodities exclusively until three years ago when I changed to trading nothing but the Forex market.

I am a published author of many books including the one titled after this website “Coaching Youth Football to Win“.
