I'm not sure where to begin. I think I've done just about everything in my 24-year history. 

It all started for me as a kid, struggling to figure out what to do when I grew up. I worked at a company that manufactured men's die-struck jewelry. I could only clean so many bathrooms and take out so much garbage before the master jeweler asked me if I wanted to be a jeweler.

I shrugged my shoulders and mumbled, "I don't know."

I ended up managing that facility and a few others. I've owned my own repair and manufacturing company, worked for one of the large chain stores, and I'm currently working for a very small mom and pop store. One of my responsibilities at this small store is training a very ambitious young lady who has that jewelry bug.

I guess I have a lot of info floating around in my head, and I feel I could help someone.
