    Tell ya what though, this is the best job I ever had. I have 40 years as an engineer and a resume that makes people drool. But now, when I get home and my daughter says "what did you do today daddy", I can tell her, "I wrote a song and shot some video, wanna see?" The smile on her face is priceless, I've never seen that from a person handing me a paycheck.
    I opened my business forty years ago this year. I was told I wouldn't last six months. Its been a long six months! I will say that for the first two years I ate the putty out of the windows to stay alive and save enough money to keep going. I am not rich but when you add up all my assets I am worth over a million dollars, very little in cash money but certainly something to leave my children.
