Keith Rickman (Street Articles Author)

Hi there, I am Keith, a very new author, and just started in the on-line business. I am interested in all aspects of life. As a more senior citizen I am particularly interested in helping anyone where I can, from my experiences in life so far. I am priveliged to have lived in fourteen countries and worked in forty two of them which has given me a very wide view of working with many cultures. I am a strong believer in always adopting a positive attitude, and smiling wherever possible even when life seems to deal you those difficulties and issues.

I am very keen to pass on my experience base and if you like help to further peoples education wherever I can. I have taught in many companies, and been a guest lecturer at University, and I get great pleasure out of doing this.
