Well let's start with the important stuff.
I am a husband to my fabulous wife, Karen, whom I've been married to for 30+ tremendous years. She is my best friend in life. But, people who know me closely, know I treat her even better than that. I'll share some more about that at a later time.
Karen and I have mentored and counseled engaged couples for over 20 years and have coached married couples since 2001.
I'm also "Dad" to two college graduated, recently married sons,
Josh and Zack. I'm extremely proud of the young men they have become.
As far as my professional experiences, I retired at age 48 after a nineteen year career with AT&T. While with AT&T, I worked several years as a corporate trainer and the rest as a data analyst and project manager.
Since retirement, I have been busy building my coaching business, along with an assortment of personal businesses and enjoying time with the family.

I co-founded a personal residential real estate investment company and built it to over a million dollar portfolio within 18 months.
I co-founded Visionary Tennis, an online league scheduling company for adult tennis players of all ability levels.
I created Rodneys Health Zone.com, a healthy eating website, for people looking to feed their bodies some of the most nutritious and energy-powered food, drinks and snacks on the planet.
And lastly, I built my current coaching business,
Helping People UP.com, a multi-faceted people-helping dream that came to life in 2002 and continues to grow and crystalize today. My specialties are business coaching and marriage mentoring
In 1996 I wrote down a goal. As a matter of fact, I wrote down several that year. But, because I look at it daily, one particular goal still vividly stands out in my mind.
THE GOAL: "I will help 100 people learn to live happy, prosperous lives."
Well, over the years, that goal has been revised again and again.
Today it has become my personal mission.
It now simply says,
"I will continually help people learn to live happy, prosperous lives.
I hope you are one of the them.
