An Immigrant – Constantine Zinon Michael

By | death, life

In 1991, in the middle of my freshman year of high school, I moved from Karns, Tennessee to Wellington, Florida.

If you aren’t in a position to…

Great week this week. Lots of progress made with a new venture I’m working on with my brother. If someone told me in my teens I would be in business with my brother, I would have told them to please see a doctor. Strange how life winds it’s way sometimes. At any rate, keep an eye out for posts on the new project. We should be pushing out the news next week. This week brought…

More on that at a later date. I hope you…
