There have been many accomplishments in my life. Times when I have excelled at the things I have set out to do. It seems like setting goals and achieving them has been a regular part of my life. For the people who do not know me today’s post is to introduce you to two aspects of my life. My life with my partner as a bed and breakfast owner and our experience as barrel racers. I figured simply showing a link to the Bed and Breakfast and Links to videos of me running barrels would be good enough to introduce you to my life.
We sold the bed and breakfast in 2008 and we sold the barrel racing business in 2010.
www.innatparkside.com We bought the inn in 2002 and remodeled the entire in and launched a marketing campaign that took the business from $80,000 a year to $1.3 Million a year. We started with seven guest rooms and ended with twelve guest rooms and four spa treatment rooms. I was the marketing guy, spa business development and the interior decorator. Bill was the real backbone of this business. He managed the employees, the books, the menus and all the rest of the details.
We sold Pac West Barrel Racing in August 2010. Bill and I not only owned the company, but we were an active on the barrel racing circuit. My last horse, LL Cat Man Do, was a great horse. He won over $20,000 in 2009 and had won about $10,000 when I sold him in August of 2009.
Here are some links of our runs together:

Here is how dangerous it can get: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOYhtD_AYlY
So that is a little about my life! I currently don’t have a horse, but there is one ion my future!
