This my biography of how I was emotionally, verbally and physically abused by my parents that left me with lifelong physical and emotional scars that would have to first recognize, and then fight to overcome. I have no back up or safety net to rely on, it's just me, When I turned 17 I started my life on my own paying my own way and making my own mistakes at my own peril. I worked extremely hard to put myself through high school, college and became a Vice President at one of the nation's largest banks only to see my bosses at retaliate against me time and time again before and after I was a whistle blower. Once I was on my own I tried to become better at everything I do from school, work, my health and own the mistakes I made, but I won't let anyone take my integrity away from me, I've worked too hard at it. I'm healthier than I have ever been, but my family isn't and won't get the help they need and I have lost them as well during this process of recovery. I had money, success, and dated some of the most beautiful women inside and out, but none of that made me happy until God started showing me I had to love myself before I could love anyone or anything else. I was in survival mode for almost 25 years and now I'm unleashing the bull that my grandfather always referred to me as. I have had many surgeries, hospital ER visits and therapists because of the damage my parents did, but I have never used these as a crutch. I haven't always done the right things in my personal life, but I have worked with the highest integrity with my clients to ensure success for them and myself. This bank and HVAC retailer only care about money and will try to run over anyone that gets in their way. If you mess with the bull you're going to get the horns and make no mistake a stagecoach and horse are no match for bull.
