About

My name is Gary Bennett, I created this site at the urging of friends, family, and myself.  To say the least it has been a rocky journey.  Learning how to set up a website without help from experts in the field was a stretch for me but I just wanted to know if I could do it, or at least get it started.  I have had help from many experts and when I found Brian at Watershedstudio.com things started looking up and now we have a website.

We offer exciting eBooks from many sources.  Mainly stories told by people we have met along our life’s path and new people we will meet.

A little information about me, I spent 38 years in the corporate world and loved my career, traveling all over the world, in the seismic oil and gas exploration business.  Then I received the layoff notice in 1999.

A completely new world opened up for me.  In May of 1999, we moved from Houston, TX to North Texas up next to the Oklahoma boarder.  I started a decorative concrete business and was moderately successful; I kept it small and manageable without having to hire any employees and only used subcontract labor. One of my most enjoyable jobs was at Serenity Retreat.

Then as I remember, one morning, I woke up and my shoulders hurt something terrible.  I went to the doctor, and he gently suggested that I find another occupation because I was not a “spring chicken” anymore and that both of my shoulders were shot.  Well that depressed me for a while because I loved what I was doing in the decorative concrete business, and now I had to start all over again.

My wife suggested that instead of using my body so much, why not use my brain instead (Oh the marvels and wisdom of my wife, I love her and thank her for her support and help) and look for another profession.  Therefore, I agreed that was a good solution to my problem.  I studied many opportunities and then settled on creating a business on the internet, and so here I am!
