Default A brief intro

I came upon this site by pure accident and it looked very interesting...read some entries and decided this would be a great spot to interact with other business people.

My name is Belinda, I am 54 and very proud of my age. I am married and between my husband and I we have 6 children and 11 grandchildren. Family is very important to us, but our children are scattered from Califorina to Florida to the Netherlands. But this makes for great vacations.

We have lived in Alabama, Louisiana, Colorada, Kentucky and spent 6 months in Costa Rica and Roatan thinking we would retire and stay, but it was not the good ole USA so we came home. We now reside in Hernando, MS

My business background is varied: Beautician, owner and operator; worked in the insurance industry, 15 years; paralegal work; owned and operated 2 restaurants, 1 fine dining and 1 a piano bar and restaurant. For the past 5 years, I worked as a contractor for 2 large oil companies with their records management programs to get them in compliance with the new federal regulations - Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

When that job ended I decided why work for someone else, letting them get the bigger share of the money and I am the one with the expertise...so I am going into the consulting business myself. I am hoping to find other consultants that can help guide me in my mission and maybe I can help them also.

Well not so brief, but look forward to exchanging ideas, disappoints, good days and bad. Thanks for the opportunity.
