"I provide a service which has been invaluable for some. Some of the
things I have said or done with people have changed their lives -- not
just work but their whole lives for the better. Some people walk away and
don't like me. I can't be all things to all people. Some people think I
am brilliant and wonderful, others think I am full of shit."

Welcome to the world where I have spent my whole career in. After 20 years
of working I am just now calling myself a consultant. My career has been
social work and training. I work because I do make a difference in other
people's lives. (Hopefully it is usually a move towards the better.) I
believe life is based on relationships. Producing airplanes is great but
if your relationships are messed up you will probably not be satisfied
with your airplane. This dissatisfaction then leads to a decrease in your
ability to learn and growth. (Maslow's heirarchy of needs)

Most of us need help during our life on our relationships and the
connections we have to the community we live and work in. There are
different methods to help people improve these relationships. For me, this
is why I have been a social worker, trainer and consultant. And I am proud
of what I do.
