Overview

"The Bumpy Road To Success" is about one persons experiences to achieve success against the many difficulties encountered from the time he was a small child. At twenty one he went to work for an oil company as a common laborer, became a labor lead man, metallurgist technician, transferred into the inspection section and last to the engineering group. Throughout his thirty two years with the refinery was anything but a smooth road. Not having a high school diploma did not deter him from learning, using common sense, standing up for what he felt was right and pursuing his dreams to success. At age fifty two he left the oil company and went into business for himself. Hopefully, his story will encourage young people, regardless of the many obstacles they may encounter, to work hard to become successful in whatever they want to do with their lives.
