My Mom

I love my Mom. She’s an incredible lady. She brought me up to care about the little things in life, and really pay attention to surrounding myself with quality people. I have great family and great friends because of her TLC growing up, and I really can’t think of anything I’d change about her, besides one thing….She can’t make up her mind when it comes to hiring people to do things on her house.

Some background on this. My Mom’s 67, has a couple of bad knees, a bad shoulder, and needs some help around the house. This is to be expected, and I’m always there (when in town) to help her out.

The thing that drives me crazy is when she needs a contractor or a specific service, and needs me to do the dirty work of picking someone out for her. Yesterday this happened.

She needed to get her carpet cleaned pretty badly. After doing some research, I landed on this website: www.arvadacarpetclean.com, which had some good reviews, and they offered the simple service that my Mom needed.

Intersecting my work day

I don’t have a bad job. Really, I don’t. I work from home as a sales consultant to a few different companies. Currently, I’m doing some sales for an event planning company based out of New York. They’re a pretty good crew, and have been coming back to me to do some work for them for the past 8 years or so. Recently, one of the¬†clients that I met at one of those events reached out asking if I would help connect them with some prospects. This happens often in my world because I’ve made it one of my habits to try and meet people wherever I go, and let them know what I’m doing. Thanks to social networks like LinkedIn, most of my contacts can see who I’m working with, and connect the dots from there.

This is just another example of the intersection that has taken place in my work life, which I’m very grateful for. When I travel, I often reach out to people I know who live in different places to ask them where to stay, what sites to see, and if they know anybody else in that city who could show me around. The response is normally pretty good, and I’ve been privy to some pretty special tours of certain cities.

Intersecting the Care of your Home

Welp, since this is the first time I’m posting on here, I’ll¬†start out by saying hello. I’m Freddy, and I’m Rocky Mountain born and bred, in love with the great state of Colorado. My life has Intersected with so many other people, and I’m very grateful to have a great family and a great set of friends in tow with me to share experiences with. I’ve been around the globe, and one thing I’ve seen through my intersections is the great deal that people care for their homes. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the care that they show inside and outside their homes. No matter what country you live in, you have a certain way of cleaning, cooking, showing love for your family and friends inside your home.
