I am constantly learning. Some of what I have learned can be interesting if I present it right. The rest of it is tolerable. I appreciate critique, comments and suggestions. I will gladly engage in a dialogue. If you care to learn more about my thoughts on leadership, healthcare, and business, please visit JPullmanleadership.com.

I also own Weightlosstribune.com, ProAllStars.com, GetHealthyHollywoodLook.com, and GetPassiveIncomeNow.com, but my baby is JPullmanleadership.com

Have a business that you want to sell? >$100M in rev and 5M in net. I prefer health care, but I can do anything. Please contact me by commenting at my blog. I will be discreet.

Thanks for reading.
