About Me
About Me
A mom of two sons aged 30+, and a grandmother to two, the light and joy of my life. Of course they are both little Angels.

For 39 years I was a travel agent, the last 14 owning my own company that I'm pleased to say was a success.  It takes a special person to be in the service industry and survive the stress of being C.E.O while still selling and managing a large staff at the same time.  I believe I am successful because I respect those who work for and with me; their time, expertise, organizational ability, loyalty and above all, honesty and integrity.

The highlight of being in the travel industry is that I got to go all over the world, and it's an educational as well as an amazing experience I'll never forget.  When I was 18 I went to Italy for the first time.  It was winter and as I was born and raised in South Africa, I had to borrow winter clothes from a friend who also traveled extensively.  It was First Class with Alitalia all the way, and my very first flight experience.  I spent a lot of time in the cockpit which was allowed in those days.

I sold the travel agency just before the airlines cut commissions, bought a parcel of land in Baja Sur, Mexico, on the Pacific coast between Cabo San Lucas and Todos Santos at a small community called Elias Calles.  It was a dream come true, then life got in the way so beautifully, presenting me with my first grandchild.  No wonder we high-tailed it back home just in time for the birth!  What a blessing!

May I suggest some pictures in your photo gallery to refect your travels and to let your friends get to know you better?

Consider yourself "tagged" as per my Friend to Friend for Friends forum.

What a fantastic friend you are, gotta love ya mate!

Lack of time is my serious enemy, but I will find some pictures to put up. I especially like one when I was 18 and went to Italy! Oh, dem were da days...

Thank you for your kind words, and great rating, even if I am an adopted Canuck...

In such a short time here at Adland, you have made quite an impact. Your consistency in all the election forums is very admirable. It definitely shows that you care about others. I think that is the best quality in a friend. Thanks for being my friend and for being the best YOU here at Adland.


Jen Maxwell - (4/10/2008 7:40:28 AM) : Hello Joe,

The rating you gave me and your very kind words have touched me and made me feel humble; thank you for being such a good friend.

Hugs to you too.
