    Wish me luck

    After almost 2 years looking I'm finally moving along the interview process with a company in Massachusetts that makes dust containment systems used in construction.
    They are looking for a Director of Sales. It's a perfect fit for my background. I have to change my attitude about not wanting to travel anymore but as Rob Keeble told me "you got to do what you have to do"

    Tomorrow at 3:00 is the 2nd interview. I'm hoping that I can overcome any objections they may have to hiring a 61 year old guy instead of a 41 year old guy.
    Faith, Hope & Charity

    Good luck Bob!

    I heard on the radio today a rebuttal for those companies that think younger workers might have a 'fresher' take on things.

    It's the older workers who have made it through all the transitions of the past and have been able to adjust that have the experience to be able to learn new things on the job, as opposed to being taught it in school.

    I'm sure you'll do great!

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
