Dumb Little Man

Hi. My name is Jay White and no, I am not some professional development guru, I have not (yet) written any books and I have no alternative agenda aside from learning and sharing.<br /> <br /> I started <a href="http://www.dumblittleman.com"><b>Dumb Little Man</b></a> one night after realizing that my free time had vanished after the birth of my second child. Well, at least that's what I use as the milestone that led me to believe that I had a ton of issues.<br /> <br /> Like many of you, I have a real world job that has its positives and negatives. I also have the typical pains that you'd associate with middle-class America: raising a family, increasing housing and fuel costs, stress at work, bad bosses, etc. - you name it.<br /> <br /> When Dumb Little Man was born, I would personally write about these experiences and their solutions. As my career expanded and as this site grew, I had a tough choice - either close DLM or accept that you, the audience has something substantial to share. I quickly decided that sharing info trumped the ego boost of being the sole writer on DLM. There simply is no master of everything so there is no value in claiming to be one. Therefore, I opened the door and now allow anyone to share stories or publish tips and advice. To me, this has been phenomenal windfall of ideas and concepts that I would have never thought of.<br /> <br /> So stop on by, learn, and share at <a href="http://www.dumblittleman.com"><b>DumbLittleMan.com</b></a>
