Steve McWilliams (Street Articles Author)

I am a musician and aspiring entrepreneur. Over the years I have had many different jobs ranging from a licensed Realtor to a landscaper and everything in between. I never pursued a formal education because academia didn't offer anything I could see myself doing for 45-50 years.

I never thought in terms of what I wanted to be when I grew up, but rather what kind of lifestyle I wanted to have. Then it was just a mater of finding a vehicle to get me there. The last 2 decades have been a quest to find that vehicle.

I know I am not a great writer but I am passionate about reading and have often wondered what it would be like to write for a living. I enjoy writing and hope to become proficient one day. I am full of opinions so my articles will likely cover a fairly wide range of topics.
