Little did I know, when I started training hard, teaching and writing over 10 years ago that I would one day be hanging up my Out of Business sign. For many reasons, actually. I’ve endured some major personal issues that really slowed me down and took all my attention, then I got hit with serious health issues that limited my ability to get around. That ended with my not having any money coming in, but too much going out. Not a good business model. So…I’m shutting down. The last straw for me was the cost of the website, which is now down.
I may take the time to write more, and as soon as I’m physically able I would like to take some additional training. Right now, I don’t have the endurance to make it through a class and the type of training I want can get physical, I can’t risk additional injury.
Looking back, I think of the amazing people I’ve met, and incredible people I’ve worked with, and just the sheer joy of watching the smile spread across the face of a scared new shooter who just realized how amazing this can be. I’ve had some incredible opportunities, traveling to Shot Show, getting encouragement from so many very special people that I admire and respect. I can’t think of a single time that I wasn’t happy teaching.
