About the Author

The author is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, with a B.S. Degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering.  He was employed with GE Aerospace Industries, 30 years, where he enjoyed a wide variety of responsibilities.  He was a Design Engineer; a Systems Engineer; a Test-Berth Director; a Cost Analyst; and he held several business development and management positions. He also was the GE Rep to the International Society of Parametric Analyst (ISPA), a prestigious, high-level, corporate appointment to do international analyses and reporting work for both the U.S. Government and GE-related enterprises (associated with the Department of Defense). During his last 15-years of employment he worked on advanced plans and programs and authored many documents for GE and the U.S. Government.

In his private life, he and his wife, Janice, raised three children.  The children (Michael, John and Angela) were raised with a sense of knowing what it is to be in their own business.  Each of them had their own paper routes.  They also shared in a night-crawler sales business and in a business of selling U.S. postage stamps in vending machines in 11 local retail stores.  This eventually led to his son John, at age 14, wanting to start a lawn-mowing business.  After four years of effort to perfect John’s business, and to track and record all the data, this book was written.
