Crème de la Crème

Lamesa, Texas in the 1950's

I grew up on a farm in the West Texas town of Lamesa. In addition to the chores on my Dad's farm, I worked for both of my Grandfathers. One Grandfather was a cattle rancher, the other a dairyman.

At age 5, I got out of bed at 3am to help my dairyman Grandfather. He milked 40 Holstein cows by hand twice a day until the REA (Rural Electrification Administration) brought electricity to his farm in 1946. My job was to place the cardboard caps on the quart and pint milk bottles... all glass back then, no plastic or automation. People worked with their hands and were proud to produce a quality product.

From age 12 to 18 I worked on my other Grandfather's ranch every summer rounding up cattle, branding the new calves, and moving herds to new pastures... just like a real cowboy.

I moved to Lubbock, Texas my Junior year in High School. Graduated in 1958. Joined the Marine Corps, honorable discharge in 1964. Attended the University of Maryland, majored in Journalism. Got married, moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and raised my family. Retired from Allen, McCain and O'Mahony Law Firm in 2010.

My Dad and my Grandfathers were the Crème de la Crème... The Best of the Best. They were honest, hardworking, God-fearing men who taught me how to be responsible for my own life. 

I started my Affiliate Marketing business in August 2008 and went full time by June 2010. I share the  same values in my Affiliate Marketing business as I learned from my Dad and Grandfathers. If you want a business that is fair and honest, I can point you in the right direction. The rest is up to you.
