I was looking for a portable business since I have homes in two states located in opposite ends of the country. Sitting in one place was not for me.

In a past life I raised four wonderful human beings. My life during that time was hectic to say the least. However, we went hiking, skiing, and we canoed in the river behind the house. We argued and fought, laughed and cried. It was a wonderful time!

I have designed houses and directed construction teams. I had a hands-on involvement with a few of them. Three different types of homes. the first one (on the river) was a fairly modern design and partially passive solar heated. The second was built in 1847 and was no longer a viable single family home because of the heat expense. So, I redesigned it. That project became a doctor's office with an apartment on the second and third floor. None of the exterior original details were lost.

I had been away from my home state for over 10 years and decided it might be time to return. So I bought a disaster of a foreclosed home on an island off the coast of Maine. I talk about it on another site.

I have a Real Estate license and a Property Management certificate in the State of Florida. As I said, at the moment I live in two states widely separated and don't want to be stuck in either one.

I started to look at online jobs such as a virtual assistant on two of the top online job marketing sites. I found that SEO and website design were two of the top requested skills. I was out of date in a big way! So, I am back in school to learn, learn, learn.
