How would you describe your job to a child?
I get to sell symbols of Patriotism, mainly the flag of our country, The Stars and Stripes, or perhaps for the State of Colorado or other states and even for our sports teams, like the Broncos. I get to meet new people every day to talk to them about their flag or flagpole. My job is fun and I really enjoy it.

What’s the most important lesson you learned in the last year?
Not just in the last year but my most important lesson was confirmed again last year, one needs to give others a hand when they need it, not when it is convenient to you. How many times has one saw a situation where you knew you have the abilities to be in assistance in some way to help solve at least some of the problem but “You were too busy” or “Some one should help them” or “They do not look good, dirty clothes or hair messed up or something is not right” or…. You get the picture You feel better if you ahead and throw those thoughts out, jump in and give a hand.
What’s your ‘focus word’ this year and how are you implementing it?

Life is fun, be sure to enjoy all of it, work, relaxing, reading a book, talking with special people and attempt to be a special person to many.
