Welcome! At 73 years old, I thought I should retire. I cannot. Not only is it financially impossible right now, I like waking up each day to plan and carry out activities that contribute a bit to the lives of others. I created Verona School and The Learn and Earn Team to provide an online platform for sharing ideas and offering valuable, effective products. I truly hope that you find the educational content and opportunities afforded you here to be of high value.
I’m told that the two certainties in life are death and taxes. Let’s add a third: CHANGE. For the most part, change is good. Let us strive to change toward being kinder, healthier, more effective in serving our communities, and authentic in our communications. That’s the direction I want to go. So, I must learn, grow, share, plan and serve.
I have a simple objective here: Serve without attempting to manipulate. I’ve always been a servant…well, kinda. In the past, I had an unconscious agenda. I would serve to be liked or admired by others. I would sometimes try to manipulate others into doing or believing some idea or action. Why? I was insecure, always comparing myself to others and feeling “less than…”. Well, that did not turn out so well. I got some help from a mentor, now passed. He helped me see that I could be freed from manipulative behavior. Verona School is a compilation of ideas, discoveries, accomplishments and opportunities that have set me free from pretentious manipulative behavior to …well, just being me: authentic, real, productive and happy.
I hope this site and its contents help you on your path toward genuine success in life and business. It is meant to be an educational site. As we evolve, Verona School will offer many opportunities that you might find valuable. Some items will cater to different personality types and social styles. The common denominator here is growth, positive change, effective actions and profitable behavior that is non-manipulative. Let’s explore, analyze, then behave in a mutually productive fashion.
If you ever need a hand or have a questions, feel free to email me and I will be more than happy to respond ASAP.
