I was born in Brooklyn, NY at Wycoff Heights hospital. I was the third (and last) of 3 children born to Alfred and Jennie, my dad and mom. I was a heavy baby (at about 8 lbs) for my petite mom (at all of 4′-11 3/4″ tall) to handle. None the less, I was born and grew up in Ridgewood, Queens, NY.
Ridgewood Queens, NY, 1960
I grew up on George Street, in Ridgewood, and lived there until I was 20. My childhood was pretty good, but I was sometimes bullied by the neighborhood kids. All in all, my memories of that place are good. I would never dream of ever living there again, though, as it is much different (and even dangerous) in some parts of Queens.
My first job (of many to come) was in 1976 at Social Security office on Queens Boulevard (a lot of thought went into naming that street, I’ll bet ) in Queens. It was actually kind of fun. It was only for a summer, though. I has many jobs after that including Macy’s (in Queens, in NYC) and TSS Seedmans (kind of similar to the now defunct Kmart). Folks used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I never know what to answer, because I didn’t have a clue.
My family and I moved to Commack, LI, NY in 1980. We had the downstairs converted (tiny) basement in the house owned by my Aunt and Uncle on my mom’s side. It was me, my mom, sister, aunt, uncle and grandmother, all in one small house in Commack. My dad has already passed on from complications from diabetes and kidney failure in 1978. If he had still been alive, we most likely would never have moved in with my aunt, uncle and grandma, as my father did not get along at all with my aunt and vise versa!
In 1989, I moved out on my own (yes I was a late bloomer) to Florida!
I was so tired of getting nowhere in New York and I was happy when the opportunity to move to Florida came along. My brother had bought a house in the Orlando area (Lake Mary to be exact) in 1986. When I discussed the possibility to go live with him for a time until I could get my own place, he agreed, based on a bunch of conditions he demanded that I would not want to bore you with, here. I was glad to have the opportunity to get out of NY so I jumped at the chance, conditions and all.
In 1993 I stumbled onto a job that my friends girlfriend didn’t want when it was offered to her. I was glad to find it as I had been working odd dead end jobs ever since moving to Florida in 1989. It was working as a file clerk for an engineering firm called CDM. I eventually started working with the engineers, learned AutoCad, and was making a nice 50k a year before the floor fell out from under me and they laid me off because of the real estate bubble burst in 2011 under the Obama administration.
I decided to go into website design. Not my best decision in life up to that point. I had really good knowledge of website design and WordPress but knew nothing about how to properly sell my service to the right folks. The ones with money who want a quality website and are willing to pay for it. I found many cheapskates who took advantage of my lack of marketing experiencing! I did that for about 2 years until I had had enough. Luckily, yet reluctantly, I went back to working a job, for another engineering firm in Florida.
That same year, 2014, I married (for the first time – yes, late bloomer – again) to my sweet love of my life, Leah!
Leah and James
We move to Ohio a few years later. I was tired of the Florida heat and she wanted to be closer to her 2 sons and grand babies.
The area we are in, Springboro, has a rich history, going back to the early 1800’s. It was founded in 1815 as a Quaker Community by Jonathan Wright of Pennsylvania. He named the village “Springborough” in reference to the numerous underground springs found in the area. There were many abolitionists, living in Springborough who helped many of the slaves escape slavery!

OK, so this leads me to where I am now. I got started in Internet Marketing (on a steady basis) in 2017. I dabbled in it for about 3 years prior to then. I went for quite some time making no sales, then a few sales then many sales online. I still have dry spells from time to time. I have had some coaching and professional (the IM gurus) lesson series, (which I highly recommend you do if you want to really succeed in IM), under Kevin Fahey (IM Coaching), Michael Cheney (7 Figure Franchise) and most recently, John Thornhill (Partnership to Success).
Dry spells or not, I am determined to make my online business a thriving one!
