This quote from Warren Buffet seems to make a lot of great sense to me, I mean how hard is it to become a expert in one field, let alone a expert in two fields. The CENTS show is coming up in OHIO, and the ANLA Mgmt Clinic is coming up in Louisville, KY. Two… Continue reading Warren Buffet, on your Chosen Profession

I’ll be leaving for the CENTS show on Sunday morning, I need to be there by 11:30am. My stone workshop is SOLD OUT! A full class of 25 eager stone-niks. It should be a lot of fun.

The APLD meeting went very well, the highlight was a designer from the SWestern part of the state-John DeVore. John packed so much good info,… Continue reading 2008 CENTS Show in Columbus, Ohio (3)
A morning of educational seminars has come and gone; question is . . . am I any smarter for having set through it? I’d say no, but the people with me would say they(and I) knew better.
