One Year Full Time!

This week I’m celebrating one year since I left Walmart Stores, Inc. to make whips full time.

It was a difficult decision to leave a 16+ year career to step out into the unknown. All I knew was that I was really not pleased with being in retail management and that it wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life. The impact of the job on my family was totally unacceptable.

The day I left that store I had no idea if this would work. I had maybe two dozen whip orders and a website that needed a facelift in a bad way. What I mostly had was the determination that I wasn’t spending one more hour in that store unless it was as a customer. At the time, that was all the motivation I needed.

Without the good providence of God, and without those of you who buy and use my whips, this venture wouldn’t have survived 2 months. Your orders allow me to provide for my wife and our five children. For that we are truly thankful.
